80% of U.S. Apple customers are just 20 minutes from an authorised repair shop

Best Buy now repairs Apple

This doesn’t look like a Genius Bar

Eight out of ten U.S. Apple customers are now within 20 minutes of an authorized service provider, thanks to a partnership under which 1,000 U.S. Best Buy stores will now begin offering service and repair.

Why does this matter?

Other than cost, one of the big arguments against steps Apple has previously taken to prevent customers taking their devices to their choice of third-party repair service has always been lack of service availability.

By taking Apple repairs into a national chain like Best Buy, Apple just took a chunk out of that argument – and eased the pressure on those poor souls staffing the Genius bars.

The deal means there are now three times as many repair locations as there were three years ago, meaning eight out of ten Apple customers will be within 20 minutes of an authorized service provider.

Apple is keeping the lid on

Has Apple really run out of surprises? Image c/o: Jacinta Iluch Valero/Flickr

Apple’s move to resolve its spat with Qualcomm means the company is now far more likely to offer 5G iPhones at exactly the right time to show what happens when the fast mobile networking standard is deployed correctly.

You can lead from behind

Apple has been castigated as being “behind” on 5G, but this isn’t really the case.

After all, with multiple carriers now choosing to abandon 5G equipment from Huawei, carrier deployment of the technology will be slowed down.

Not only this, but while we can already access 5G networks in some locations, it’s going to take a while yet until 5G is as regularly available as even 3G networks are today. At time of writing, even 4G hasn’t quite become universally available as yet.

Apple’s peace deal with Qualcomm means the company will now be able

The best note-taking app for iPad just got updated

Nebo working on an iPad

Nebo is one of my favorite productivity-boosting iPad apps and the developers have bought a whole set of additional useful features to the software in the latest v.2.2 update, which is available now – and I have a few copies to give away.

An essential iPad app

Developed by MyScript, this brilliant app lets you take handwritten notes (including smart flowcharts) using your Apple Pencil or Logitech Crayon and iPad.

It can then convert these handwritten ideas into typed items using its hugely accurate (and award-winning) built-in optical character recognition (OCR) software. Nebo’s charm is that it lets you write real handwritten notes that the app’s built-in OCR is smart enough to turn into typed words.

The best way to take notes

This is a great feature, but until now it has not been so easy to switch from Apple Pencil to keyboard, this

8 things you need to know as Apple kills iTunes

Apple is separating iTunes into new Apple Music, TV and Podcasts apps, but it isn’t really killing the veteran media management software it launched in April 2003.

Here’s what you need to know:

Why is Apple ending iTunes?

Apple’s software chief joked as he announced the end of iTunes

“How about a calendar in iTunes?,” joked Apple engineering lead Craig Federighi when he announced the news at WWDC.

“I mean, you can have all of your appointments and your best tracks all in one app!” The media management software had grown to a point at which it simply did too much.

The music industry owes a lot to iTunes

iTunes didn’t stop online piracy overnight, but it did“open up the promise of a celestial jukebox for anyone who believed that it’s better to pay for stuff.”

That turned out to be plenty of people who still
