What if I told you that ultra-precise text editing and selection is not only possible, but easy, on all Apple gadgets running iOS 12?

If you, like me, have been struggling to edit that typo in a slab of text you just wrote on your iPhone on iPad, you may have missed a feature that lets you turn your keyboard into a trackpad and move the cursor around your text with perfect precision. 

This feature has so far only been available for 3D Touch devices (i.e. newer iPhones) and on iPads (but with a different, clumsier implementation), but iOS 12 changed all that. Read on.

iOS 10 is officially out of public beta and now available for download and you're going to want it, specifically for all the awesome new messaging features. The easiest way to update your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to iOS 10 is to go to Settings > General > Software Update and download it over-the-air (OTA).  If you go this route, you will need to connect to a Wi-Fi network as the update is too large to download over a cellular connection (even if you do have enough data). Alternatively, you can also connect your supported iOS device to your PC or Mac and update through iTunes. iOS 10 is compatible with the following devices: Read more...

With the official release of iOS 10, it's hard not to feel a deep sense of nostalgia looking back on 10 versions of iPhone software since Apple's mobile operating system launched as "iPhone OS" on the original iPhone in 2007iOS has gone from no App Store to App Store to FaceTime to Siri to Apple Maps to Apple Pay to Health and more. In the span of ten iOS releases, Apple has sold over 1 billion iPhones. That doesn't even count all the iPads and iPod touches that also run iOS. It hurts my brain to even think about it for too long.

Every year, Apple releases a new version of iOS, each with tons of new features and tweaks and security updates. Apple CEO Tim Cook has called iOS 10 the "mother of all releases." Continue reading "iOS 10 review: It’s all about Messages"

3d touch lock screen I’m here to praise Apple again. Sorry. I have to do it. It’s not in my contract nor am I paid to do it – imagine if we were! We’d be rich! – but after manhandling the iPhone 6S Plus it’s abundantly clear that Apple has discovered another breakthrough. And they are surprisingly nonchalant about it. Apple’s first interface breakthrough happened when… Read More

What Jony Ive’s Fancy New Title As Chief Design Officer Means

Apple’s move to bring its product designer extraordinaire, Jony Ive, into its “C suite” should surprise no one, given how large he looms over the company’s products. At the same time, the news of Ive’s new position as Chief Design Officer—which broke on Memorial Day—seems to have come out of left field. Three years ago, CEO Tim Cook gave Ive dominion over Apple’s mobile software interfaces and hardware design. The new responsibilities gave him control over the way the company’s devices looked and behaved, from the inside out. Now, according to The Telegraph, he will travel (possibly back to his native England), leaving his managerial and administrative responsibilities split between two Apple staffers. Reportedly, Ive’s new assignment will have him working with London’s Foster and Partners to design Apple’s Spaceship Campus 2 and weighing in on the growing Apple Retail Stores springing up worldwide.
