Moleskine Flow Review: An Elegant, Accessible Digital Notebook for iPad and iPhone

One strength of an analog notebook is its simplicity. The times in my life when I’ve used a notebook regularly, I would always keep a pen attached to the notebook so that the process of writing involved just two simple steps: open the cover, and press pen to paper. Many digital notebook apps forfeit this simplicity due to overly complex interfaces and toolsets.

Moleskine’s new app, Flow, is a digital notebook that understands what it takes to succeed as a notebook replacement – giving you the tools to customize your experience to your own preferences. It’s available on both iPad and iPhone, and offers an elegant balance of convenience and flexibility that make it my favorite digital notebook to date.

Apple iPad Air hands-on (2019): Just ‘Pro’ enough

It used to be that, if you wanted to buy the best possible iPad, you splurged on an iPad Air. It wasn’t just sleek — it was terribly powerful, too. (Well, for the time, anyway.) In 2015, though, the company launched the iPad Pro, and before long, the iPad Air line was discontinued and left to the annals of Apple history. Until now, that is.

Apple iPad mini hands-on (2019): A love letter to old fans

I’ve always been really fond of Apple’s iPad mini; I bought the first one as a Mother’s Day gift, and the iPad mini 4 was one of the first big reviews I ever wrote for Engadget. Unfortunately, Apple hasn’t shown its smallest tablet nearly as much affection — as I write this, it’s been over three years since the company gave the mini a refresh. In that time, we’ve seen Apple launch and redesign a line of pro-grade tablets and build a stunningly competent entry-level model. Frankly, I had nearly given up on the mini entirely — that is, until Apple announced a refreshed model earlier this week.

Did you know this little iPhone calling tip?

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?

Just follow this short and easy tip:

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


This post is by Engadget RSS Feed from Engadget RSS Feed

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”

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,

Apple’s updated iPad Air and Mini support eSIMs

The iPad mini and iPad Air Apple quietly announced ahead of its big March event will come with eSIM support. Cupertino’s latest iPad Pros have eSIM support, as well, but these new entries are the first non-Pro models with the feature. While the Apple SIM works similarly — and present in older non-Pro iPads — it’s only compatible with the tech giant’s partner carriers. By giving these devices eSIM support, they’ll be able to work even on the networks of non-partner carriers.

The nature of how pilots are trained has received scrutiny following two crashes of the Boeing 737 Max in a five month period, with a report revealing pilots were given two hours of tuition on an iPad about the aircraft, rather than using the more conventional flight simulators.

With its “Show Time” event not scheduled until next week (here’s what we think is coming), it came as a bit of a surprise to many to see the Apple online store “down” this morning which typically means new products are imminent. The company didn’t disappoint (at least iPad fans) with a new iPad Air and fifth-generation iPad mini.

The iPad Air replaces the 10.5” iPad Pro and is available for order, starting at $499 – down from the iPad Pro’s starting price of $649. The new iPad mini is also available for order today at a cost of $399 for the lowest-end model.

The iPad mini brings a slew of new features, including an A12 Bionic processor, Retina display and Apple pencil support for the first time on a mini.  The display packs the highest pixel density of any iPad, according to Apple. The mini is
