Chris is a genius, by all accounts. Formerly at Apple for years, he had an incredibly short stint at Tesla over the past few months. Now he’s going to be working for one of Apple’s biggest frienemies on the Google Brain research unit. Can’t wait to see what he churns out next.
I would welcome this. It’s in line with my overall Face ID post, too. Sounds like Apple is finding some cool uses for the purported 3D-sensing, front-facing cameras. If accurate, the cameras will always be watching when the screen is on. Good thing Apple has an excellent privacy record.
I would love for Apple Pencil to work on the bigger iPhone, especially with iOS 11’s quick notes feature. Like Jason says though, it would probably need to be a shorter version. Writing on an iPhone with the current Apple Pencil would be kind of comical. iPhone would also need the special screen layer found in iPad Pro to track it properly. We’ll see.
Dwayne Johnson clarified in a subsequent tweet that it’s a commercial, not a movie. Aside from the obvious “wtf?”, I wonder what they’re advertising. Obvious answer is Siri, but I’d wager they want to show off her new iOS 11 voice. Guess we’ll see tomorrow.
The Computer & Communications Industry Association (CCIA) asked the International Trade Commission to reject Qualcomm’s request to block the import of iPhones as a result of an intense legal battle between Qualcomm/Apple. Seems like Qualcomm really has no allies.
Great explanation. Only force quit iOS apps if they hang or just aren’t behaving correctly (or if they’re named ‘Facebook’). Other than that, you simply don’t need to do it. The amount of people I see force quitting apps on the regular is staggering.
This pertains to Windows Phone 8.1 (which 80% of Windows Phones run). It’s a shame, really. Windows Phone had some potential, with its Zune-like UI. Microsoft just made too many critical errors along the way.
Have an original Apple Watch? Has its back cover come off or loosened? Well, you’re in luck. Apple has extended repair service for this specific case through April 2018. Good move on their part. The first gen Apple Watch had some QC problems in this area. Pretty minor, considering all the other technology packed in.
This is a step back in the right direction, but Apple really struggles with the Notification Center UX for some reason. I know they can do better, but at least they aren’t shipping iOS 11 with the Beta 1/2 implementation.
