The next iPhone could have a bigger display and more battery

While the iPhone 8 isn’t going to be announced until September, this week has been packed with rumors on the upcoming device. And it looks like the display is going to be the main star of the show.


Rumor has it that Apple is going to announce three new devices — two new versions of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, and a new high-end device that could cost more than $1,000. And it looks like the rumors around the display are for this mysterious “iPhone Pro” model.

iPhone vs 7 6S Plus: release date, price, compatibility Apple Watch

iPhone vs 7 6S Plus: release date, price, compatibility Apple Watch

It is to iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 7, at least in the minds of those who skipped the launch last month and are now focused on the next big thing from Apple. Several users took a pass on the iPhone 6, as yet to be updated-right, or because they could not afford it or one of several other reasons, and users are looking at what comes next. But just what model (s) of the next Apple iPhone will be launched? What will it cost, and when its release date to arrive? And

how is Apple Watch affecting its release?


The first question may be the most difficult. The story says that Apple will move to the next iPhone 6S, as it has a habit of making a model "S" every two years, effectively keeping each generation iPhone around for the benefit of those who are within two years of renovation cycles with their carriers. But a series of recent changes suggest that Apple may be reconsidering that plan, from changes in naming conventions to more belated interest in fighting movements direct competitors like Samsung. That means that Apple could move to iPhone 7 below, and keep the iPhone 6 as the model around at a discounted price. Whatever the new iPhone model that follows, we hope to continue at $ 199 for the standard model, $ 299 for the Plus model.

If Apple goes with an iPhone 7 vs. 6 below, which will be fully compatible with the Apple clock from day one. Apple has already made clear that all models of the iPhone 5 will support forward. But those who wait for the next iPhone will have to wait some time. While the clock Apple could come as early as the spring of 2015, the release date for the next generation iPhone will not arrive until the fall of next year. If the iPhone 6S arrives in 2015, the iPhone will arrive in July 2016.

How Apple Gets New iPhones Do you buy over and over again

How Apple Gets New iPhones Do you buy over and over again

Ever wondered why your iPhone seems to slow down after a few years? Why the once-incredible device becomes moody and strives to perform tasks or applications baseload?


The answer lies in Apple's software, and is a key part of the strategy of the company to keep millions of people who buy new iPhones.

Apple launches new mobile operating system each year, and maintains a powerful cycle in motion. Every fall in recent years, people have rushed to download the latest and greatest version of iOS, which is designed to - and as a result, works best - the latest hardware that is also released at the same time. In the months leading up to the release, many application developers furiously updated their applications to the latest operating system.

Here's how it affects you: If you have an iPhone that is more than two years, as Apple recommends you update the operating system a few times since purchase, you may find yourself wanting to throw your phone against wall. It has probably become slow and meticulous.

For many, the solution is simply to buy a new iPhone.


It is very unlikely Apple deliberately slowing older iPhones only for you to upgrade. The company declined to comment for this article. Instead, Apple designed the new operating systems, which have more features, take up more space and require more computing power for new iPhones. And one consequence of this is that do not work as well on older iPhones.

The system has been quite successful for Apple. iPhone users in the USA tend to pay a lot for a new iPhone every two years or so (which, not coincidentally, is also the traditional wireless contract duration.)

But with its latest update to iOS 8 Apple hit a few bumps.


Last month, the company made the rare move of pulling updating the operating system after some people reported they left their phone can not make calls and fingerprint sensors useless. Although Apple said the bugsonly affected a small number of people, and the company soon released a fix, the episode led to an avalanche of negative publicity. That, along with the whopping five gigabytes of valuable storage space required to download the update wirelessly, seems to have made people shy away from downloading the new operating system in bulk. Apple fans are embracing the new operating system much more slowly than iOS adopted 7 the previous version.

Still, many people rushed to download iOS 8 in the early days it was available.

Justen Meyer, 33 years old working in the professional sports industry in St. Louis, was one of those people. He regrets update your iPhone 4S, it says it is now "slow".

"It's horrible. My apps do not work. Twitter will not open," he said in a recent interview.

Before the upgrade, the phone was "perfect," he said. "I was completely happy. Now it's making me wonder if I'll go through it the next time I have a new phone."

Meyer is not alone. People complain about their iPhones feeling slow after new iPhones and operating systems out is nothing new. Catherine Rampell wrote in The New York Times last year that his iPhone 4 felt "much weaker" after the 5S and 5C were released. Sendhil Mullainathan, an economics professor at Harvard, said in another Times article this summer that Google searches in the USA for "iPhone Slow" peak when each new iPhone is released.

Part of that could be due to many people download the new operating system at the same time, iMore Editor in Chief Rene Ritchie said earlier this year. Apple launches its new OS to everyone at the same time, while Android updates hit different phones at different times. (This is one reason why the operating system Android is so fragmented. - Only a quarter of Android owners are on the latest version of the operating system)

iPhone models that are one year old - the next-generation - tend to be good when they are updated to the latest version of the operating system, said Mike Gikas, who as editor of the leading electronics Consumer Reports reported on the testing of every iPhone that has come out.

Are the oldest starting to lag, Gikas said.

"We know that the phone becomes old, the applications seem to be slow and some of the capacities are reduced," he said.

In fact, Twitter is full of people complaining about their phones after downloading iOS slowdown in August.

The new software has slowed from old hardware before Jamming CD-Roms in our Gateway 2000 What is different with the iPhone is the huge range of third-party software that runs on phones. Apple has 1.3 million applications in its App Store. And for those applications to remain relevant and continue to work, developers have to update to work with the latest software and hardware from Apple.

Apple aggressively pushing developers to design applications that run on the latest operating system, said John Poole, founder ofPrimate Labs, a Toronto-based company that makes applications for measuring the speed of smart phones.

"Apple encourages developers to run the latest version of iOS, providing tools and APIs that only support the latest version of iOS," Poole wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. "For example, it is difficult to write an application that is compatible with both iOS screen sizes 7 and the new iPhones."

Poole added that much publicity machine that is Apple's App Store currently promoting applications and games for iOS 8 which provides incentive for developers to design for the latest and greatest.

Of course, Apple wants to develop its software, too, and is not looking back to make sure older versions of the iPhone works seamlessly with the new versions of iOS. For Apple remains the leader in the highly competitive smartphone game, you need to innovate and focus on optimizing the experience of people with newer products.

"Apple faces this choice: Do they create an operating system that works well on older devices, or create an operating system that leverages the latest hardware?" Poole said. "Apple's approach has been to make an operating system that requires taking advantage of the latest phones instead of an operating system that will work well on older phones."

And therein lies the dilemma - or, if you are Apple, Genius: Do you want to download latest software from Apple and that's what developers are developing applications, and comes with new features and important security fixes. But if your phone over a year old, you can slow down.

Christopher Mims, a former editor of technology and science is now quartz technology columnist for The Wall Street Journal, has been using Apple products for over 20 years. Quartz In a story last year, Mims explained how he has found a way to get more time away from an iPhone over: He simply chose not to download the latest version of the operating system.

"Except for small incremental changes, not upgrade the operating system of hardware you are using," he wrote. "Especially if you currently do the job."

Mims now has an iPhone 5S, flagship phone last year. And he has no plans to download iOS August.

"The only time you should [upgrade your operating system] is when applications stop working and require reviews upgrade to the new operating system," said Mims HuffPost via Twitter. "Apple has always been so. It was true with the Mac, is now true with iPhones. Incremental updates are fine. Updates But integers? Not just. You get them when you get a new phone."

New Apple iPad case scheduled for October 16

New Apple iPad case scheduled
 

Apple has sent out invitations for a special event on 16 October, where the company is almost certain to submit updates this year air the iPad and the iPad Mini. The event, held on the campus of Apple in a much smaller than the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Launch place, probably also include some updates to other Apple product lines, such as the iMac and Apple TV. There is a remote possibility that we will see something new and crazy on October 16, and a TV, but I think it is unlikely, given recent debut of Apple clock.
new iPads

Top Menu October 18 event is a new Apple iPad and iPad Mini with Retina Display Air. There is a rather persistent rumor that the next iPad Air - call it the iPad Air 2 if you like, or perhaps the Air Plus iPad - will feature a 12.9-inch screen. As with the iPhone 6, several sites have published leaked photos of what appears to be an iPad thinner air, lighter, and bigger.




It is unclear what Apple will do with the iPad Mini with Retina display, but is supposed to get thinner and lighter. No word on whether there will be a 9.7-inch version of the iPad 2 with Air Plus 5.5 iPhone 6 inches, it is arguable that the 7.9-inch iPad Mini makes a lot of sense - but we'll have to wait and see what Apple has on 16 October.
 

A new iMac with Retina display, updated Mac Mini and Apple TV?


Apple should also reveal some other product updates at the event on October 16. We can only guess what these products really could be - but a new 27-inch iMac with Retina (5120 × 2800) display is possible. Teasing invitation "was too long" may indicate that the event will focus primarily on products that have not been updated in a while - Apple TV, the Mac Mini and iPod Nano are overdue an update. Or maybe Apple is just being sarcastic, considering it was a great event just a couple of weeks ago to launch the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.


The current Mac Mini was released way back in 2012
 

We could also see a MacBook Air with Retina display, or even a brand new product. Using the invitation of the original colors of the rainbow Apple could indicate that there will be a lot of things related to the Mac at the event - or maybe just stayed at my desk for too long now and I'm starting to see patterns where there are no none.

In any case, we're going to have some reporters at the Apple event in Cupertino on October 16, and we'll be live blogging here at ExtremeTech. Stay tuned!

Transferring contacts, photos, music and apps from Android to iPhone

How to switch from Android to iPhone without losing everything 


Transferring contacts, photos, music and apps from Android to iPhone


We explain how to transfer contacts from Android phone to iPhone. How to transfer applications from Android to iPhone. How to transfer photos from Android to iPhone. And, yes, how to transfer music from iPhone to Android. Basically, how to switch from Android to iPhone, right? 


If you're an Android user considering switching to an iPhone, you may be concerned about the transfer process. The good news is that the transfer iPhone contacts to Android phone really could not be simpler. It turns out that Google is good at these things. And the files are very similar. The basic principle consists of a backup or cloud or a desktop machine, and then sync with iPhone. So let's get into it.

Transfer contacts from Android to iPhone: Google use the simplest form 


There are two ways to transfer contacts from Android to iOS. We will outline the bottom two, but if you've been using your Android phone for any length of time, we strongly recommend that you try them in the order you have written.

If you have been using your Android phone and Google account (Gmail, Google Play, etc) for any period of time it is likely that all your contacts will be associated with your Google account. At least you use most often should be.

So make sure you have a copy of your Android phone. Go to Settings on your Android phone and select "Accounts & sync" or similar. Enter your Gmail account and enable syncing. Your phone contacts and Google contacts should now sync.

Then go to your new iPhone. Settings> Mail, Contacts, Calendar and add your Gmail account. Make sure the contacts are enabled for the account. You should now find that all your contacts are in your Google iPhone.

Transfer contacts from Android to iPhone: deepen with Google 


Belt and suspenders, and to ensure that this process always works in the future, consider doing the following, either on his iPhone after following the above steps, or on your Android before making the move:

  1. Open the application settings of your iPhone. 
  2. Select Mail, Contacts, Calendars. 
  3. Select Add Account ... 
  4. Select Other 
  5. Select Add CardDAV Account 
  6. Fill in your account information in the following fields: 
  7. Server: enter "google.com" 
  8. User Name: Enter your full Google Account or Google Apps email address. 
  9. Password: password of your Google account or Google Apps. (If you've enabled 2-step verification, you have to generate and enter an application-specific password.) 
  10. Description: Enter a description of the account (eg, personal contacts). 
  11. Select Next at the top of the screen. 
  12. Make sure the "Contacts" option is turned ON. 
After installation is complete, open the Contacts application on your device, and synchronization begins automatically start your iPhone and Google. Any time you set up any smartphone Google should be the key to all your contacts.

Transfer contacts from Android to iPhone: only exchange SIMS 


This only works if the Android phone has a SIM size similar to its iPhone, either a micro or nano-SIM for later models of iPhone. (Of course, you can cut any SIM to fit, but do so only as a last resort. - If you mess up the SIM card and its contacts are gone forever)

First save all contacts from Android phone to your SIM. Then insert the SIM card into your iPhone, being careful not to lose the iPhone SIM. Finally, go to Settings and select "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" and click "Import SIM Contacts". When the operation is finished, you can replace the iPhone SIM card with the original card.

Android Apps transfer to iPhone


There is no easy way around this. If you have to pay for an app on Google Play, you will most likely have to pay to buy back into iTunes. That's the bad news, the good news is that in almost all cases the application you like to use in Android is available on iTunes, and access data using which will work in the other. This means that any content or service acquired through its Android app will probably be accessible on your iPhone. So once you have started using your iPhone, just sign on the iTunes app store, and start searching for those applications that you like.

Transfer photos and videos from Android to iPhone 


There are a few simple ways to do it. The first involves the installation of an application of data transfer. You can find several applications of data transfer on the Apple App Store, but remember that you need to find them first in your Android Store Play Google. Copy and recommend PhotoSync Info. Then it is easy enough to install your chosen both the Android and iPhone app, and you will be guided through moving files from one to the other.

The other way to move photos from Android to iPhone is the use of a computer with iTunes. Just find the photos and videos on your Android phone, move them to your computer, sync to iTunes, and then sync the iPhone with iTunes again. A similar process works for music, as we will describe below.

To transfer photos from Android to iPhone, simply connect your Android phone to your PC or Mac. Choose the photos and videos you want to move, and drag them to a folder on your computer. For simplicity I would create a new folder on your desktop called ... 'Photos for transfer.

Now connect your iPhone to your PC or Mac, open iTunes and click on your iPhone. Click on the photos, select "Sync photos from" checkbox and select the folder where you saved your photos. Click Apply and photos are synced to your iPhone.

Transfer music from iPhone to Android 


The principle here is similar to transfer photos from Android to iPhone. You need to get music files from your Android and on to your PC or Mac, then get the files into iTunes and sync your iPhone. It should be very simple to transfer anyThe critical stage here is a backup of Android to a PC or Mac. Because most Android devices can be mounted and used as external storage, this can be as simple as drag all music files from the folder structure of Android phone mounted, and put them into the music folder on your PC or Mac.

Now install and open iTunes on your computer. Go to Library, and then click Music. Open the folder where you put your music files, and drag them to the iTunes Music view.

Now connect your iPhone, click on the iPhone, and then click Music. You can choose to sync your entire library, or select only the songs or artists that you just added. Then click Sync and the songs will be added to your iPhone.

(Or just do not worry about owning the music and use of Spotify.)

Apple releases iOS 8.0.2 to fix the problems caused by the 8.0.1 update

After Apple released the iOS 8.0 update for iOS 7, a number of users noticed some bugs with the new operating system, especially with HealthKit application, some third-party keyboards and photo library. Apple then released a 8.0.1 update, which caused even more problemsthat carried TouchID cellular connectivity is turned off for some users.

Apple said fewer than 40,000 users have been affected by these problems, but the company still took the update within 60 minutes of release and users who had already installed to reinstall iOS 8.0 advised.

Yesterday Apple released a new update called 8.0.2, which contains all the fixes for all problems 8.0.1 was supposed to fix, and the errors did cause the 8.0.1 update. 


The new iOS 8.0.2 brings the following list of improvements:

"We apologize for disturbing the users of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that were affected by the bug in iOS 8.0.1."

Despite a good start, breaking his own record sales for the first weekend, the rest of the week Apple has been quite hard, with reports from iPhone Devices 6 bent Plus, complaints about the software and studies on the rate of accidents 8 Apple iOS was quick to solve some of these problems, but it could have a lasting impact on the image of Apple as a company that only delivers high quality products.

Apple Pulls iOS 8 Software Update After iPhone Problems

Updated add instructions to remove iOS 8.0.1.


Apple Pulls iOS 8 Software Update After iPhone Problems

A software update Apple on Wednesday sent did the opposite of what the company intends, off cell phone service in countless iPhones, among other problems.

Twitter and tech news sites quickly overflowed with reports of people who encountered problems after downloading and installing the update, iOS 8.0.1, which was intended to fix several bugs in the operating system for Apple mobile devices. Apple responded by removing the update.

This is not the first time an Apple software update has caused, rather than fixed, device problems. But it seems to be one of the first times that the company has pulled the update. "We are actively investigating these reports and provide information as quickly as we can," Apple said in a statement. "Meanwhile, we have removed the update iOS 8.0.1."

The problem seems to mainly affect users of the latest iPhones, 6 and 6 Plus, not older iOS devices. Twitter users reported that the update also disables the Touch ID function on their devices, which allows users to unlock their phones with fingerprints.

The problem with the update is one of the few spots in an introduction otherwise great success of new products from Apple. The company sold 10 million new iPhones last weekend, what great successes. The product is still scarce in stores.

The weekend, however, reports began appearing on blogs technology iPhone 6 permanent bending Plus after users keep in their pockets for long periods of time. On Tuesday, a video blogger published the results of their own "bend test" on YouTube, which leans a successful iPhone 6 by applying significant pressure with your hands. [Video:. Watch on YouTube] The first buyers of the new iPhone more-Size may have to take precautions to protect your devices in their pockets. Regarding the software update from Apple, the lesson may be that it is better to wait before installing.

However, the problems do not seem to have reached the critical mass that greeted the reception problems Mobile Phone Apple iPhone 4, a controversy that became known as "antennagate". Even the problem caused by the antenna design of the iPhone, had little to diminish sales of iPhone 4.

People who have already downloaded iOS 8.0.1 may return to the previous version by connecting to iTunes on a computer. Details can be found at iMore.com, a site dedicated to news about Apple.

Android and Windows Phone have unique capabilities, but the Apple iPhone 6 Plus is still best

Summary: Today's modern smartphone operating systems are all worthy of consideration and there are benefits to all of them not found on the others.


modern smartphone

The more I continue to use the new Apple iPhone 6 Plus the more I am convinced it is the smartphone for me. However, as a regular Windows Phone and Android user, there are still a few things I do miss from these two mobile platforms.

Prior to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus announcements, I listed five things I doubted would come to the new iPhone and was thankfully proven wrong by three of the five.

The iPhone 6 Plus comes with VoLTE
support (on T-Mobile and Verizon), long battery life, and NFC. Granted NFC is still very limited, actually you can't even use it until Apple Pay launches.

The price of Android and Windows Phone smartphones is much less than the iPhone 6 Plus and a benefit of both operating systems. Looking at the true full price you will find high end Android smartphones priced $150 to $250 less than the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus.

Benefits of Android

For the last couple of years, Android has been my primary smartphone platform with the newMoto X being one of my favorites. I still do enjoy using Android and here are five benefits over the iPhone.

Ability to text from a PC using MightyText or Moto ConnectmicroSD card support for unlimited storageAdvanced camera software that lets you take some very creative shots and share your photos and videos in unique waysInfrared remote control is handyBenefits of Windows Phone

The Nokia Lumia 1520 served as my daily driver for quite a while and I have always had a special place for Windows Phone in my heart. Five things I miss using on Windows Phone, include:

Cortana just can't be beatThe glanceable Today screen is efficient and functionalLike Android, microSD expansion gives you unlimited storage capacityI still find an integrated FM radio quite usefulWhy I still prefer the new iPhone 6 Plus

Despite a few things available on Android and Windows Phone that are not on the iPhone, I don't think I am going back to either anytime soon. Apple's new iPhone 6 Plus is an amazing piece of hardware that satisfies the big screen fan like me. I also prefer the iPhone 6 Plus for the following reasons:

Touch ID Setting on your new iPhone 6

Did you just buy your first iPhone with Touch ID? It's time to put the work feature.
 

Touch ID Settings

 

The first time you start an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 5s, you are prompted to create a fingerprint for use with Touch ID. If you want to do this later, enter the Settings application in general> Access code and fingerprint. Either way, the steps are the same.


First, you need to enter or set a passcode. Then place your finger on the start button in a vertical direction. By doing so, you will be required to lift and place the finger on the button repeatedly. As it does, a picture of a fingerprint on the screen begin to fill.

The first time I did this, I moved too fast and Apple called me to ask me to perform the steps again. A good rule of thumb (nice pun, huh?) Is to lift and support the finger after you hear a slight hum.

When this task is complete, will have to do it again with your finger in a horizontal direction. I think Apple scans your fingerprint at least 10 times.

Once both steps have been completed, the system asks you how you want to use Touch ID. The available tasks Unlock Touch device ID and whether they make purchases on iTunes and the App Store.

Up to five people can enter their fingerprints, or you can use five of his own fingers on the same iPhone. To add someone else, repeat the above process.

usage  

With ID Touch, you'll never need to "slide to unlock" again. Instead, push the start button once to turn on the screen. Then place your finger on the button up and wait for the phone to unlock.

Making a purchase on iTunes or the App Store with Touch ID is also quite easy. First, press the "Buy" button. Then use your ID Touch or enter your access code.

How to ditch Android and join the side of Apple



How to ditch Android and join the side of Apple


Now that Apple has a bigger, better iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, we suspect lots of big screen Android Fans can defect to iOS. (Apparently Apple thinks so too). But while the mobile exchange is a type of headache, change the phone and change the operating systems level can induce pain of migraine if you is not prepared properly.  

But you will be prepared. Since you can not miss your calendar events to your favorite applications, here is how to make the most important in the transition from Android to iOS in top condition mobile needs.
Mail, Calendar and Contacts

If you keep your life in sync with the cloud-based Google ecosystem transfer Android to iOS is relatively easy. You will need to create an Apple ID when you first start your journey iOS (if not already have an iTunes account), but you can add your Google account once the initial configuration of your phone is finished.

To do this, go to Settings> Mail, Contacts, Calendars, then tap Add account. There, you can add your Google account (or any other email account you would like to sync to your device). Once added, you can choose to sync mail, contacts, calendars and notes.

If you have maintained contacts stored locally on your Android phone, you first need to export your contacts to the SD card of the device, connect it to your computer and download the resulting vcf file, then log into your Google account. Click where it says "Gmail" on the top left to go to Contacts, click the More tab and select Import. Now, when you add your Google account to iPhone, contacts will come along, too.
Keyboards

From iOS 8 is now compatible with third-party keyboards, most likely you can still use an almost identical version of its keyboard are extremely high. You are lucky!

Adding a third party to the keyboard of your system is quite simple. Download the keyboard app from the App Store and then go to Settings> General> Keyboards> Add New Keyboard. Navigate to the section for third-party keyboards, and see all the applications you have downloaded keyboard. Select the one you want, give you permission to be used throughout the system, and you're ready to go.

Popular keyboards like SwiftKey, Swype, Fleksy and TouchPal now all must be available for iOS in August.
applications

While you will not have the same type of home screen widgets and an Android phone, 8 Does iOS widgets in your opinion today in the notification center. It is accessed with a swipe down from the top of the screen, as the name suggests, this is where you will also find a list of the latest notifications and executables you received.

As for the widgets, the latest version of the Yahoo Weather application includes serving as a miniature version of the full blown application with a Flickr photo-specific location annotated with current and future conditions of temperature. Calendar Calendars Readdle applications and also offer 5 notification center widgets for better glanceable version of the daily programming schedule Apple offers.

Dropbox, Evernote, and OpenTable are some of the other titles that offer these widgets. 9to5Mac has a complete alphabetical list of applications that currently allow Notification Center widgets, but most surely be on the way.
Your App Collection

Unfortunately, there is no way one or two steps to get all your favorite Android on your iOS device. You will need to go through and manually reset your home screen with applications you use on the regular.

But this discomfort is actually a disguised opportunity. Now is the time to take inventory of his collection of applications. Make a list of your actual favorites, they use every day, and those who can not imagine life without him. Ditch the rest. Congratulations, your collection of apps just got a thorough cleaning of autumn.

With the exception of a handful of titles (mostly games), almost all of your favorite Android should also be on iOS. If you already shelled out big bucks for an Android version of an application, it might be worth leaving your customer service a line-you might be able to offer a discount code for their continued patronage, rather than risk choosing a application to compete cheaper. If the application is only $ 1, however, do not be stingy, show some love dev.
Photos, music, PDFs and Other Media

One of the things I like to get me a new phone is the opportunity to begin again. But some people like to keep your favorite photos, videos and music on your device, always. No problem. If that's you, you'll want to download first to your computer (connect the Android device and then sync with Outlook or Exchange) and transfer them to your iPhone via iTunes. To do this, connect your iPhone via USB or via WiFi and launch iTunes, click "Sync with phone", then select the media you want on your new phone (you can choose between books movies and TV shows, notes, photos, audio content, and more).

If you are transferring PDF and ePub documents, you can still access them using iBooks iOS to read (or other PDF reader). If you have Office documents, Apple Pages, Numbers and Keynote will allow you to read and edit them on your iPhone, or you can use Microsoft Office for iOS.

Your MP3 files if you are not already an avid user of Spotify or Rdio, live music Apple applications on iOS once they have been added to iTunes. And once your audio collection is sorted, if you want to buy more music on the move, you can buy content in iTunes (same goes for movies or television programs).

New Apple iOS 8 Mobile Software to arrive

SAN FRANCISCO: New generation Applesoftware to feed their coveted mobile devices is scheduled for release on Wednesday, two days before the arrival of its latest iPhones.

The iOS mobile operating system will be available free for download for iPad iPhone and many models and will be pre-installed on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which was released on Friday.

Apple One-Click Link U2 remove junk from iTunes Marks fault Marketing Textbook

Execution is everything


Apple One-Click Link U2 remove junk from iTunes Marks fault Marketing Text

Musical tastes are personal. And it seems that force-feeding people a new album from U2, unsolicited, doesn’t go over well.

Apple giving away U2′s new Songs of Innocence is in itself not a bad thing. But there are two problems. One, the album is poorly reviewed – think Paul McCartney “Wonderful Christmastime” rather than Abbey Road. Two, because the album simply appeared in purchased music – and because iTunes (cleverly enough) displays what you’ve purchased from iCloud – it showed up in people’s collections when it didn’t belong.

So, we’ve learned something. This doesn’t work. And as always, you can’t really buy marketing. That is, sure, Aphex Twin rented a blimp, but in the end, they had more successful viral marketing because they let their fans choose to spread their new release. U2 tried to force that promotion, and even though Apple and U2 are loved by many people, the combination comes across as corporate and inauthentic.
Peter Cohen shouts at the Internet over this, but I think that’s because he’s in the unfortunate position of reading lots of tech blogs.

This isn’t a “self-indulgent, first world problem.” It’s a textbook case study in the difference in power between word-of-mouth and a poorly executed promotion.
I know lots in the music production community who were offended by the U2 move, too. And there’s a reason for that. Apple may be a big corporation, but they aren’t Coca-Cola. They’re Bic pens, or a Nikon camera, or a Gibson guitar – we use the product to make things. And they’re an RCA turntable or a pair of Sennheiser headphones, Technicolor film or a book printed by Penguin. We use the product to take in stuff we love, too. Apple’s marketing has lately been really cleverly sensitive to this (and has featured a lot of great music making apps, too). So the U2 record proved, like the release, to be a bit deaf.

There will be subtler cases of this. If YouTube or Spotify or SoundCloud tries to tell you what to like, if Facebook ultimately buries your friends under ads, it’s a problem, not because advertising can’t work, but because it can obscure the reasons to use those services. Heck, I even have to protect my own personal authenticity and CDM’s. So, yes, sometimes the reaction on the Internet overdoes the tone a bit. But filter out that tone and you’ll know what’s working and what isn’t.

And every PR person in music, every record label looking to promote a new release ought to pay attention to what has happened here. I will meanwhile enjoy scoring this Aphex Twin 1, U2 0.

And if that doesn’t say it all, this does:
https://itunes.com/soi-remove
Songs of Experience.

More related to this story:
Writing for Time, Pat Regnier notes that part of the problem here is confusion about how cloud functionality works in iTunes. “Hate” is a strong word, I think, but people are certainly puzzled.

People Don’t Hate U2 Nearly as Much as They Hate iTunes
TechCrunch notes the rising importance of exclusives and the like, though I think this case demonstrates that backlash is a real risk:
The Music Industry Is About To Change, And Apple And U2 Are Just The Beginning
Berlin-based DJ and music pundit BarbNerdy notes that article. And speaking of backlash, she also notices that we’re starting to see promoted tracks in SoundCloud. That seems to be a bigger potential problem for the Web service than the (opt-in only, someday subscription opt-out) advertisements.

And I think this is why people are spooked. Do they really care about one U2 album? No. But this represents the world of music you don’t want, which to me is worse than advertisements. It’s payola all over again, more explicit than ever.

"There is the potential for Apple to disrupt the competitive position of PayPal These are legitimate concerns. - For phones in particular," said Victor Anthony, an analyst at Topeka Capital Markets.


Will Apple kill PayPal Pay
 

   However, Anthony thinks PayPal will continue to report strong results from eBay for the coming quarters. He says the risk of Apple is one of the longer term.

PayPal is eBay making sexy

 But it's understandable why investors would be nervous eBay. PayPal, after all, is the most exciting part of the business of eBay. PayPal revenues accounted for over 40% of all eBay sales in its most recent quarter. And pay sales rose 18% from a year ago, compared with only 9% increase for the core market of eBay / online auction business.

Apple introduces new iPhones, SmartWatch, software

new Apple smartwatch

 

 For the first time in years, Apple iPhones were not the star of the show. Apple released a SmartWatch Tuesday, a portable device that marks the first major entry of the company into a new product category since the debut of the iPad in 2010.


 The move is significant due to recent questions about whether Apple still has the ability to innovate after the death of 2,011 co-founder Steve Jobs.

The introduction of two new device eclipsed the iPhones, larger company that does not quite have larger screens; they will have a new landscape mode to take advantage of the larger screen.

The iPhone 6 will have a screen that measures 4.7 inches, while the iPhone 6 Plus will be 5.5 inches. In both cases, application developers can design applications that can be viewed differently when the phone is horizontal.

Apple also introduced a system to use the phone to make credit card payments in retail stores.

Apple is turning to the past, as it exposes their future. The company is holding the event at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts, the same location where Jobs introduced the Mac computer changing industry 25 years ago. The Cupertino, California, located close to the headquarters of Apple.

As for iPhones, which still represent the main source of profit for Apple, the larger models should help the company compete with Android devices.

This is what unfolded in Tuesday's event



BIGGER iPHONES

 

The iPhone 6 will have a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus will be 5.5 inches. The screen resolution on the Plus version will be sharper than previous iPhones, to 401 pixels per inch instead of 326.

With the larger screen is a new horizontal view of the Home screen. Usually icons are stacked vertically, even when the phone is horizontal. Application developers will also have new tools to reorganize their content to take advantage of the larger screen.

The new phones are not as great as the last flagship phone of Samsung - 5.1 inch to 5.7 inch Galaxy S5 and to Note 4 - but they will be large enough to neutralize a key advantage of Samsung and other manufacturers Android have had.

In particular, Note Samsung phone is not growing this year. Last year Note 3 was 5.7 inches. Instead, Samsung is emphasizing other hardware features, such as a sharper screen. Also releasing a model with a curved edge to show the time, weather and other information on the side of the phone.

Apple says the new phone will be faster and have better battery life than previous versions. The phones also have a new sensor, barometer, to estimate the amount you've climbed the stairs, not just how far you have walked or run.

Of course, some people still use their phones to actually make calls. When there is poor cellular reception, people will be able to make regular calls over Wi-Fi. The transfer between the two networks will be transparent. In the USA, this feature will initially be available through T-Mobile.

The resolution of the camera is 8 megapixels, while Android and Windows Phone rivals are pushing that. The S5, for example, is 16 megapixels. However, the number of megapixels is only one factor in what makes a good photo. Apple says it is putting in new sensors for better shots.

Apple is also enhancing the role of video in slow motion, allowing even slower shots. The camera is capable of taking 240 frames per second, twice what is on the iPhone 5s last year. Normally, the video is at 60 frames per second.

The new phones will begin shipping in the USA September 19, with pre-orders to start on Friday. Starting Prices are comparable to those in the past - $ 199 with a two years for the iPhone 6 with 16 gigabytes of storage.

However, models of elevators have double the memory than before - $ 299 for 64 GB and $ 399 for 128 gigabytes. The iPhone 6 Plus phones will cost $ 100 more for each configuration.
 

 

 

MOBILE PAYMENTS 

 

Apple is calling its new payment system Pay Apple.

You will be able to use your phone's camera to capture a photo of your card. Apple will verify that behind the scenes and add it to the account passbook your phone so you can make payments to a retailer. Apple announced several merchants who accept this system, including Macy's, Whole Foods, Walgreens and Disney stores - and, of course, Apple stores.

Many companies have tried to push mobile payment services, but none has caught on widely. Cook says that's because the business models have focused on self-interest of companies rather than the user experience. The latter, Cook says, is "exactly what Apple does best."

For security, the card number is stored only on the device. Every time you pay a card once to create the transaction.

 

A SmartWatch

 


The audience burst into applause as Cook proclaimed that he had "one more thing". It was how Jobs used to close his speeches.

That was a closer SmartWatch Apple thing. It's called the Apple clock instead of iWatch many people had been speculating.

Consumer electronics companies have yet to demonstrate a compelling need smartwatches while bracelets have been largely niche products aimed at tracking fitness activities. Apple device seems to change that.

Consider the history of the company: music players, smartphones and tablet computers existed long before Apple made ​​their own versions. But they were not the main or until the current popular iPod, iPhone and iPad arrived. According to Jobs, Apple made ​​those products easy and fun to use.

Cook said Apple had to invent a new interface for the clock because simply shrinking a phone would not work.

Much of the interaction would be through the dial on the clock, which Apple calls the digital crown. It is used to zoom in and out of a map, for example, which is not blocking the screen, what would have happened if you were pinching in and out of zoom.

Apple has also been working with application developers to create new functionality. You will be able to open the doors of the rooms at Starwood hotels or remembering where you parked your car with a BMW application.

The new watch will come in a variety of styles and straps, with a choice of two sizes. Clocks competing vendors have been criticized for being too large for small arms.

The clock will require one of the new iPhones or an iPhone 5, or 5c 5s. It will be available early next year, with a starting price of $ 349

  

 

NEW SOFTWARE

 

While much of the attention has focused on the new devices, software powering these devices is becoming its annual update. Apple iOS considers 8 to be the biggest update since the introduction of the App Store in 2008.

Current users of iPhone and iPad will be eligible for the free upgrade, too. Apple is proud of pushing customers to the latest version of the software, allowing application developers to incorporate new features without having to worry about the abandonment of existing users. With Android, many recent phones can not be upgraded immediately because of the restrictions imposed by manufacturers and wireless service providers.

Among other things, 8 will allow iOS devices work best in sync. For example, it is possible to start a message on an iPhone and finish it on an iPad. With a forthcoming update called Mac Yosemite, will be able to continue working in the same message on a Mac computer also.

These features extend handover to the new Apple clock, too.

The new software will be available for existing users on September 17.

Closing the event, U2 performed on stage before Cook made ​​his new album, "Songs of Innocence", available for free to all customers of Apple's iTunes.

Apple shares rose 1 percent to $ 99.36 in afternoon trading Tuesday.
