Once a week, or so, I'm going to publish a QuickTip. These are going to be very simple, very quick tips about functions, on the iPhone or iPod Touch, that some readers may not know about.
Taking a screenshot of your Apple Watch’s screen is really easy and just as you would expect. Just press the only two buttons on the watch at the same time, the digital crown and the “side button”. What’s really awesome is you just open our iPhone’s Photos app and there’s the screenshot! Here’s a little video I found to show how it’s done. [Read More…]
As usual, there are already many video up on the web of people doing scratch and drop test on the newest Apple device, the Apple Watch. This time around there are even more test. For example, water, heat, food, stain resistance and more. We’ve collected some of the best to share here. We’ll make sure to label and organize the videos into the different models. The Apple Watch Sport (aluminum) has a different screen and metal type than the Apple Watch (stainless steel). Then there is the Apple Watch Edition in Gold. So far, I’m very impressed with all the results. If you see any more amazing test, please share them in the comments. [Read More…]
For a while now the Apple Watch app has had a non functioning tab labeled “Featured”. Now that Apple Watches have been delivered, the App Store styled page is up and running. There are a few categories of apps and you can now see thumbnails of screenshots just like you can with the full iPhone/iPad apps. Just to be clear, these are not apps you just install on your Apple Watch, these are apps you install on your iPhone and then have the option of accessing from your watch. There are definetly apps I will not have on my Apple Watch, such as games, but it’s great to have a section highlighting all the apps that have Apple Watch companions. [Read More…]
Apple has release more “Guided Tour” videos on their YouTube channel and website. Apple is really trying to fight the haters by showing exactly why you should want this device. Personally I do not have a single bank/card that works with Apple Pay so this wouldn’t affect my decision. I’m sure it will be great once all banks and stores offer it. Do you have the new Apple Watch? If so, have you used it yet to pay with Apple Pay? I wonder how many people actually have banks that work with Apple Pay. Let’s find out! [Read More…]
I’ve recently been seeing this commercial from Microsoft about their Siri competitor, Cortana. Although I’m pretty sure I’ll never buy a phone from Microsoft (And I know no one that has one), this feature is really nice. Now I’m not sure how it works in real world scenarios but this seems impressive. Like Google Now, it adapts to your schedule, location, traffic and other information to make your life easier. Apple is behind on this one. There are location based tasks and Siri is really good at what it does but it doesn’t really seem to be getting much better lately. It needs to take a real leap to get ahead. What do you think? Also, according to the comments, the real Cortana voice doesn’t sound like that. [Read More…]
