Use this to power your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac at once

Another day, another iPhone-related power product, this time mophie’s $99 all-new powerstation hub, a portable battery with a difference.

Why is this product good?

I like the product because it provides a really good balance of flexibility and portability.

Not only is it a powerful 6,100mAh battery pack, but it’s also a great in-room hub when you travel, thanks to its built-in AC power prongs.

These mean you can use the device as a wall outlet hub, as well as on-the-go.

You can plug the battery directly to mains

You can plug in three different devices simultaneously using the three built-in USB ports, including one USB-C port for iPads and Mac. It also carries a Qi-enabled wireless charging surface, so you can power up your Apple Watch, AirPods or recent iPhones.

iPadOS makes Apple’s tablets feel like a priority again

When I reviewed the iPad Pro last year, I was torn. Here was one of the most impressive (not to mention expensive) tablets any company had ever made, and its software seemed caught between two goals: provide the classic, friendly iOS experience people were used to, and grow in a way that made it more meaningful to pro users shelling out for premium hardware.

iOS 13 preview: Shaping up to be a huge update

After Apple announced all of its big software updates for the year at WWDC, it made clear that the first public beta versions of iOS, iPadOS and macOS would go live sometime in July. Whoops! Never mind. The company just let us know they’ll be released any minute now, and the brave (or possibly reckless) among you can load them onto your Apple devices later today.

Of the three beta builds coming, I’d argue iOS 13 is the most important. In case Apple’s two-plus-hour keynote didn’t make it clear, this is shaping up to be a meaningful update, especially compared to iOS 12, which mostly just focused on performance improvements. We’ve got some important interface improvements here, plus a slew of revamped first-party apps and some impressive new accessibility features, among other things. Oh, and let’s not forget that iOS 13 also provides the foundation for iPadOS. It’s indisputable Continue reading “iOS 13 preview: Shaping up to be a huge update”

The Apple iPhone 2019 upgrade (speculation) guide

She's very strange

Rumor and speculation may look just like this.

What can we expect from Apple’s 2019 iPhone range? Faster, better battery life and some delicious AR features that make the platform even more unique.

Here’s the latest speculation as the annual summer season begins all over again:

What’s at stake?

Apple has multiple challenges on multiple fronts in 2019. In part, these reflect political instability at this time, as trade wars, wealth inequality and poor governance in key markets all take their toll.

Apple also faces pressure to make a bigger contribution to taxation in the countries it does business in, to change its commendable stance on privacy, and is working at a time at which most big tech firms are under more observation by regulators than before.

The company is working to mitigate the impact of softening smartphone sales by nurturing a strong accessories and services business, but all eyes Continue reading “The Apple iPhone 2019 upgrade (speculation) guide”

Apple Watch in the pool

You can wear Apple Watch Series 2 and later models in the pool.

Do you know what to do if your older Apple Watch falls into water? Most recent models should be OK, but here’s the complete guide to Apple Watch, water and what to do:

Apple Watch water damage – model matters

All Apple’s watches have been somewhat water resistant, though some models are more waterproof than others:

Original Apple Watch:

The first Apple Watch is splash and water-resistant, but don’t drop it into water, wear it in the bath, or go swimming. It has an IPX7 rating, which means it should be able to handle being 1-meter underwater for up to 30-minutes. But Apple says you shouldn’t submerge it.

 

Apple Watch Series 1:

The second Apple Watch release is also splash and water-resistant, but don’t put it underwater, in the shower or in the pool. It also

How to call your Voicemail from any iPhone, Android or landline

iPhone in tokyo

Do you ever need to listen to your voicemail, but don’t have your iPhone with you? Because it’s damaged, or you’ve run out of power? This is how it’s done:

In praise of visual voicemail

Apple’s visual voicemail is a fantastic feature (if your carrier supports it).

I wish more carriers would.

Most of the rest of us need to continue with old fashioned voicemails, poorly developed systems that testify to a big lack of care among service providers who’ve somehow still not managed to figure out how to tell you who the call came from, even if you use Caller ID.

It’s rubbish, isn’t it?

Voicemail systems that robotically tell you phone numbers for people who have contacted you while ignoring that most of us can’t even recall our own.

Though, perhaps that’s just me.

I know millions of us don’t even pick up our voicemail anymore because the

How to send location on iPhone (Apple Watch)

Find My app

You can do more than find your iPhone, in iOS 13 you can find friends, Macs and more

You can quickly and easily send someone your location using on iPhone or Apple Watch. You may need this when you are trying to find your date or explain you are running late. Whatever the reason, here’s how to send current location on iPhone (and Apple Watch).

Send my Location

There are two primary ways to share your location from iOS devices:

  1. Using the Find My application.
  2. By sharing your location from within a Message.
  3. By sharing your location from within the Contacts app.

We will look to both of them here.

First, why share my location?

Here are four ways I’ve used this feature:

  1. When trying to link up with a friend who agreed to give me a lift.
  2. When trying to meet a friend in a public space.
  3. My partner

How to solve Apple ID/firmware errors when updating your AirPort base stations

A pile of AirPort base stations

They may be heading to landfill but they should work a while longer yet.

Apple has published one of its increasingly rare firmware updates for its discontinued AirPort base stations  – and I think some Mac users may have a few problems installing the software.

Here’s what to do:

Don’t panic – it’s going to be OK

Apple has updated the software for its discontinued AirPort Express, Extreme, and Time Capsule Base Stations.

The thing is, the company publishes AirPort updates so rarely it is very possible some Mac users have not installed an upgrade to their device since before Apple shipped Mojave.

In some cases, Mac users in that situation may find the update fails and they will be given a weird Apple ID error. Another problem that exists is that the firmware download fails.

And, if that isn’t enough, you need to be installing the update in the

“Open Photos. Scroll up. Show numbers. 13.”

Over the years, Apple has frequently highlighted its accessibility work in commercials, but the ad that ran for a minute and a half during game 5 of the NBA Finals was particularly powerful. In it, a wheelchair-bound man — Ian Mackay, a disability advocate and outdoor enthusiast — issued the commands above to a waiting iMac. With hardly any delay, the computer did as it was told.
