If you want to know how your iPhone works, ask your kids.

Apple’s iPhone/iOS is packed with secrets, such as the need to swipe back on the numbers in the Calculator app to delete an error – here’s another one we think most iPhone users have no idea about.

Did you know this little iPhone calling tip?

The situation:

Apple’s data detectors try to identify phone numbers where they find them in some apps, but this doesn’t work in every app and those numbers aren’t always recognized.

What do you do when you receive a number in an app or document iOS doesn’t spot?

WWDC: What is Apple planning for iOS 13?

Apple’s WWDC 2019 image sure looks a lot like AI machine intelligence to me.

Apple has announced the date for June’s WWDC, where it will give the first public peek at improvements to its operating systems, so what changes is it expected to make in iOS 13?

What changes to expect in iOS 13

iOS 12 was widely seen as a maintenance release that prioritized backwards compatibility, stability and performance.

Apple’s decision to support devices back to iPhone 5S drew positive praise and means the OS is now installed on nearly every active iOS device in use anywhere on the planet – a platform advantage no one else enjoys.

The support window may change

With this in mind it is important to note claims Apple plans to severely constrict backward compatibility in iOS 13 to devices back to 2017 (iPhone 7 et al).

This means the iPhones 5S, 6, 6

The iPad Air seems boring, but I want one anyway

When Apple released the impressive and wildly expensive iPad Pro last fall, I started thinking that the company could use an iPad XR. I imagined a tablet that takes the high tech found in the new iPad Pro, but cuts some corners to make it more approachable to the masses. The new iPad Air isn’t that. Instead, it’s like the 10.5-inch iPad Pro from 2017, except with a price cut and a few spec bumps. That’s not very exciting. What’s more, the iPad Air doesn’t have the flashy bezel-less display, Face ID sensor and support for the new Apple Pencil like the existing iPad Pro.

But compared to the basic $329 iPad, the new iPad Air has worthwhile improvements: a bigger, better screen, a much newer processor, more storage and support for Apple’s Smart Keyboard accessory. It’s a logical step up from the base iPad, and it Continue reading “The iPad Air seems boring, but I want one anyway”

Apple has a plan to combat fake news, and it doesn’t require censorship but does involve investing in helping us decode the media we read better.

Apple’s solution for fake news: make readers smarter

This is why it has announced a new initiative to support leading European and U.S. non-profit outfits who provide nonpartisan, independent media literacy programs to provide students with the critical thinking skills they require to decode a fractured news media.

Apple is supporting the News Literacy Project (NLP) and Common Sense in the US and Osservatorio Permanente Giovani-Editori in Italy in this.

Trust and the press

Apple’s press release carries the following:

“News literacy is vital to sustaining a free press and thriving democracy, and we are proud to be collaborating with organisations on the front lines of this effort,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’ve been impressed by the important work being done by the News Literacy

Consumers are emotionally connected to Apple, says MBLM

Apple is once again the most popular tech firm in terms of the emotional connection consumers feel for the firm, according to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2019 Study.

Connection on a connected planet

Apple’s outgoing retail chief, Angela Ahrendts, has previously claimed millennials to be hungry for human connections, so even in a digital age that feeling of intimacy has value.

Apple was not only the number one brand overall, but also the number one brand among both men and women, as well as being number one among millennials, users over 35 and users with incomes of $50,000 or more.

It is interesting that Google was the top brand among people with incomes under $50,000.

These connections have financial value. Top intimate brands in the U.S. continued to significantly outperform the top brands in the Fortune 500 and S&P indices in both revenue and profit over the past 10 years,

Prototype Development Board of Original iPhone Surfaces in Never-Before-Seen Photos

The Verge has obtained never-before-seen photos of a development board for the original iPhone, providing an interesting look back at the measures Apple took to ensure the smartphone remained as much of a secret as possible.



The large circuit board contains nearly all of the original iPhone’s components, including its processor, memory, storage, 30-pin dock connector, camera, home button, SIM card slot, and antennas for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. There are also some non-iPhone parts such as two Mini-USB connectors for accessing the baseband.

While this particular Engineering Validation Test (EVT) prototype has an iPhone display attached, the report notes that some boards were even supplied without the screen, meaning that many Apple engineers working on the original iPhone back in 2006-2007 had no idea what the handset would eventually look like.



The Verge‘s Tom Warren:

If an engineer inside Apple received a development board like this without a screen,

Call of Duty Mobile announced for iOS, Android, made by China’s Tencent

SAN FRANCISCO—Activision has taken the wraps off its first major Call of Duty video game for smartphones. The title is simple enough: Call of Duty Mobile. The online, multiplayer-only game will arrive later this year, but neither Activision nor any of its Western CoD-focused studios will lead the game’s development.

Instead, dev duties will be handled by Tencent, one of China’s leading mobile-game publishing houses. (Activision did not clarify any particular studio taking the lead within Tencent on this game.)

Call of Duty Mobile was unveiled at today’s Unity keynote presentation as part of the 2019 Game Developer Conference, because it has been built in the Unity Engine. An Activision representative at the Unity event said that players can expect “beloved maps, competitive game modes, and signature combat mechanics from [Call of Duty entries like] Black Ops and Modern Warfare.” Teased maps coming to the series’ first-ever mobile

Apple’s video service: One aggregator to grow them all, analysts hint

Fools fight polarised battles. The wise man grows beyond them.

An enhanced and improved iTunes Store and a much better TV app for Apple TV and iOS is the most likely way Apple will bring its video services to market, predict the analysts from Ovum.

What Apple will announce on March 25

Apple will hold a big event on March 25 at which it is expected to announce its new service, often described as some form of “Netflix competitor”.

However, the analysts believe that rather than launching a classic Netflix-style subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service, the company plans something more subtle and (potentially) more compelling.:

  • A platform-based bid to create an ecosystem both itself and others can thrive in.

“All signs point toward a new and enhanced version of Apple’s popular iTunes store and the associated “TV” app for mobiles,” they said.

If they are right, the new platform will

Imagine a super-fast electronic notebook you could carry in your pocket and write with like any other notebook! And then take a look at the new iPad mini with Apple Pencil support.

Apple’s iPad Mini just got an upgrade

In a surprise Monday upgrade, Apple has enhanced both the iPad Air and iPad mini.

In come significantly faster A12-series processors, a much-improved Retina Display and improved support for Split View, Slide Over and Drag and Drop.

Apple is clearly reducing the build costs of the iPad range with a thicker bezel than you find on Pro models – but that’s not such a bad compromise for price.

What Apple said

“iPad continues to provide magical new experiences for a growing range of uses where it is the absolute best device, from playing games in augmented reality to note-taking and drawing with Apple Pencil, from streaming HD movies and editing 4K

Apple updates $499 iPad Air, $399 iPad mini ahead of services event next week

We’re one week out from Apple’s services-focused event in Cupertino, and the company just announced a pair of devices we’ve been expecting for quite some time. Apple debuted a new, $499 10.5-inch iPad Air and a new, $399 7.9-inch iPad mini today. Both have familiar designs but also have the company’s new A12 Bionic chip.

The new iPad Air looks like previous models, with thicker bezels on the top and bottom of the advanced Retina display (now with True Tone technology) to house the camera array and the physical Home button. While both new iPads have updated cameras that can better handle low-light situations and immersive AR experiences, they appear to omit FaceID entirely.

Inside the iPad Air is the new A12 Bionic chip with Apple’s neural engine, and the company claims it will make the new Air 70 percent faster than previous versions

Apple’s online store has unexpectedly gone down this morning. Apple typically takes the site down pending changes to its product range, although it’s not clear whether that’s the case this time around.



Apple has several rumored products debuting soon, including a new affordable iPad, iPad mini 5, next-generation AirPods, and its AirPower wireless charging mat. However these products are expected to be announced via press release during its upcoming “It’s showtime” March 25 event.

We’ll follow up this development shortly as soon as we hear more.

A major U.S. study has confirmed that the Apple Watch can successfully spot the early sings of serious heart rhythm problems – proving it works like a  doctor you always have with you.

Apple Watch heart sensor is accurate

Stanford Medicine has published the results of the largest ever study of its kind, the Apple Heart Study.

This study looked at over 400,000 participants from all 50 states across eight months.

Study results showed 0.5 percent of the over 400,000 participants received an irregular heart rhythm notification, illustrating the feature’s ability to surface important health information without increasing a doctor’s workload.

This is great news as Apple explores the potential of mobile devices, wearables, AI and remote health care.

“The results of the Apple Heart Study highlight the potential role that innovative digital technology can play in creating more predictive and preventive health care,” said Lloyd Minor,

Apple still makes iPods and it’s possible the company plans to slip out a seventh version iPod touch according to reports and hints in regulatory filings, marking 18-years since the original product was introduced.

A little iPod history

It’s nice to see the iPod is still around.

Apple launched its first iPod in October 2001.

Steve Jobs directly supervised the top-secret teams that made the hardware, including the easy-to-use iPod ClickWheel.

Usable and intuitive it was a revolution in music players, which had been clunky, complex tech toys until then. The prototype (originally developed at PortalPlayer) was the size of a cigarette packet with buttons on the front.

“Our goal was to design something that would become iconic,” said Apple chief designer, Jony Ive, at the time.

They achieved that goal.

If you use Google’s iOS keyboard Gboard, you can now translate to and from all languages supported by Google Translate — that’s currently 103. This means you can effectively type and translate in any supported language, in any app on your iPhone. The feature is a welcome addition, but it’s a bit overdue. Gboard has supported translation on Android since 2017.
