Jony Ive on Design and Copycats

image

Jony Ive, Apple's head of design for both software and more recently hardware, had a sit-down with Vanity Fair. You can read the transcript here but the point that stuck out for me was his disdain for copycats. In addition to a formal interview, there were questions from the audience. Here's one such exchange:



Tip of the Day: Recover Deleted Photos

image

If you like to use the camera on your iPhone or iPad, one of the features you'll appreciate in iOS 8 is the ability to recover deleted photos. When you delete a photo, it remains available in the Recently Deleted album on your device for 30 days. If you decide that in fact you want to save a photo you deleted, you can easily recover it.



We Might Have to Wait a Little Longer for an iPad Pro

image

Apple's October 16 announcement invitation said "It's been way too long," but the latest rumors suggest we may have to wait a little longer for a 12.9-inch iPad. An iPad Pro has long been rumored, and makes sense, but Apple's focus now is on meeting the oversized demand of the iPhone 6 Plus. Rather than ask their suppliers to switch over to a larger display for a supersized iPad, Apple needs them to focus on the 5.5-inch screen iPhone 6 Plus, at least according to the Wall Street Journal.



Apple's October 16 Invite Begs the Question: What's Been Too Long?

Apple just sent out their invitations to members of the press for their October 16 Town Hall media event, where Tim Cook is widely expected to reveal Apple's latest iPads. Indeed, it's been quite the year for Apple. The invite has a rainbow-colored, linear Apple logo and reads simply, "It's been way too long." But what does this mean?



Save the Date: New iPads and Macs, Due October 16

It's official. Apparently, Apple thinks it's been too long even though they just had a press event last month. But that was about iPhones and the Apple Watch. October 16 is their next event and it should be about new Macs, running Mac OS X Yosemite. The iMac line and Mac mini should be updated, and a 12-inch MacBook Air is expected to replace the 11-inch and 13-inch models. Also expected in October is iOS 8.1 with support for Apple Pay on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, with Near Field Communication.



Apple Sapphire Supplier Files for Bankruptcy

How the mighty have fallen. Sapphire manufacturer GT was lauded as the next great investment based on their arrangement with Apple. The speculation was that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus would have sapphire screens, sourced from GT, and would result in payments of $578 million from Apple, in installments. Alas, the new iPhones still use glass screens, and while some of the Apple Watches will have sapphire screens, the expectations were too high. GT has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and their stock has plummeted 90 percent to around $1.



The iPhone 6 Plus: A Gamer's Perspective

image

I've been using an iDevice as my primary means of game consumption since the introduction of the iPhone in 2007. Since that time, I've see the landscape of iOS gaming change dramatically, but perhaps never more significantly than this year with the introduction of the iPhone 6 Plus alongside Apple's A8 chip and Metal interface. If Apple's iOS devices presented a challenge to consoles and dedicated handhelds alike before now, I would consider the iPhone 6 Plus the beginning of the end for the age of console-dominated gaming.

In its mission to expand on an already substantial collection of mobile products, Linkedin launched a SlideShare app (Free) for iOS 8. The new app leans heavily on personalization and content that is relevant to you.

Personalization starts with a tailored feed. The feed algorithm picks up on your particular tastes, what your contacts like, and the popularity of presentations within your network.



Teens Head to Apple Store and Bend the Display iPhone 6 Plus

image

Yes, you read that headline right.

A pair of teenagers in England went to an Apple store and bent the display iPhone 6 Plus. Even with the force of teen hands, you can see the screen pop out of the front of the phone. 

The video has since been removed from the user's account, but since this is the internet, their attempt was recorded and put back on YouTube. Check it out below:



Using a Reliable iPhone Case Can Mean Cash Later

I never, ever carry my iPhone without a protective case. While I would love to be one of those people (you know who you are!) who bares their beautiful gold iPhone for the world to see, I just can't do it. I'm clumsy and terrified that I'll drop it—even though I have a great insurance policy on it.
