Apple’s Live Photos API released: why should you care?

Apple’s Live Photos API released: why should you care?

Today Apple launched LivePhotosKit JS Live Photos API software for developers, enabling use in iOS apps, macOS, and on the web. Developers can utilize the new Live Photos SDK (software developer kit) with sample code - to do this, developers must download Xcode, which includes the SDK's for building apps that support Live Photos. Developers will also gain access to details on how to build app extensions and entire apps using the new Live Photos API. This is the first time developers have had access to Live Photos API since the first announcement of Live Photos back in September of 2015.

iOS 10 adoption crosses 50% mark one month after release

iOS 10 adoption crosses 50% mark one month after release

It would appear that Apple users don't have too many reservations about making the jump to iOS 10, as Apple's own App Store support page is showing that the newest version of iOS is installed on 54% of devices. On its own, that number might not be very impressive, but when you consider that iOS 10 has only been available for about a month, Apple's 54% statistic carries a little more weight.

iOS 9.3.5 quickly released to block Pegasus spyware

iOS 9.3.5 quickly released to block Pegasus spyware

Apple has set itself up as one of the biggest advocates of privacy and security against government-sanctioned espionage, which is probably why it immediately jumped into action to plug up a serious security hole merely 10 days after it was reported. Just weeks after it rolled out iOS 9.3.4, Apple has issued a critical iOS 9.3.5 update in an attempt to block a malware nicknamed “Pegasus” which, in just one tap, could gain access to the iPhones and data of “high-value targets”, which is usually another term for political targets like dissidents and activists.

Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides finally embrace iPad split-view

Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides finally embrace iPad split-view

Google's Office apps have finally - finally - embraced iOS 9's split-view support, ending one of the most confusing feature hold-outs ever to plague Apple's mobile platform. Split-screen multitasking was one of the most-anticipated aspects of iOS 9, addressing in one fell swoop criticisms that the platform was unsuitable to properly replace a laptop or Windows tablet that had plagued it since the first iPad.

iOS 10 release begins today (for developers)

After introducing iOS 10 to the world this morning at WWDC 2016, Apple let it be known that the operating system would be delivered to developers this afternoon. Once this Developer Preview is launched, later this year there'll be a Public Beta. That's the release you, the reader, will most likely want to be getting in on. Unless you don't like it when software has a big likelihood of not working precisely how you expect it to work. Hence the Beta.

iOS 9.3.2 update for 9.7-inch iPad Pro has returned

iOS 9.3.2 update for 9.7-inch iPad Pro has returned

Considering its not so stellar update performance lately, Apple has somewhat turned what were normally uneventful iOS updates into a guessing game for some and a harrowing experience for others. The most recent incident concerned the iOS 9.3.2 update which ended up bricking some 9.7-inch iPad Pros, keeping them stuck in a loop over an "Error 56" message. After pulling out the update from its servers nearly two weeks ago, Apple has retried the update process again, this time with more positive results.

Apple pulls iOS 9.3.2 update for 9.7-inch iPad Pro, fix promised

Apple pulls iOS 9.3.2 update for 9.7-inch iPad Pro, fix promised

iPhone and iPad owners have been proud of how better the iOS update system is compared to Android's fragmented diversity. With Apple in full control of updates, all supported devices are able to receive updates quickly and smoothly. That last bit, however, has lately become a bane more than a boon, with each update sometimes breaking things instead of fixing them. The latest example of this would be iOS 9.3.2, an otherwise uneventful and minor update if not for the fact that it bricked some 9.7-inch iPad Pro tablets.

Android N could save the slumping Android tablet market

Android N could save the slumping Android tablet market

When was the last time you saw or even heard of a noteworthy, particularly high-end, Android tablet? With the except of the Google Pixel C, which has its own story to tell, chances are the last ones of note were mostly launched in 2014 or prior, with a sprinkling of a few curious ones in between. Although technically there is no dearth of Android tablets in the market, interest and sales in the device segment has waned greatly in the past years. Depressing at that may sound, hope springs eternal, and that hope could very well be brought by Android N, whatever its name will be.

Software updates are usually made in order to fix problems, not make matters worse. But sometimes even the best laid intentions and plans can end up in a spectacular fail. That is what some owners of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro are discovering right now. After applying what seemed to be a normal iOS 9.3.2 update, they found themselves caught in an endless loop that won't even let them restore to a back up or a previous iOS version. In other words, they're left with a completely non-working tablet.

iPhone 7 Pro details appear in release blueprints

iPhone 7 Pro details appear in release blueprints

While the magazine we're looking at right now suggests this might be the iPhone 7 Pro, we're leaning a bit more towards the dropping of the number altogether. Like we described in a demonstrative presentation article last week, today we're seeing a device that's far more powerful than the iPhone 6S, coming with features that will exemplify the mobile processing power of Apple's own "A" series. This device also has pogo-pins like the iPad Pro and a space for two camera lenses instead of just one.

iPhone 7 rumors may make you replace your Android

iPhone 7 rumors may make you replace your Android

Could the iPhone 7 be the model that makes the Android-loyal masses make a switch to Apple's iOS platform? Details leaked this week may point in that direction. Based on what we're seeing here and now, the iPhone 7 could jump the shark, so to speak, bringing in a collection of features that appeared on Android-based devices first, starting with a pair of cameras at the back of the device. If the leaked images we're seeing this week end up being accurate, this could also be a real turning point for Apple's industrial design - and maybe not in the right direction.
