iOS 9 introduces a new feature to the iPhone called "Low Power Mode." Like Apollo 13 on the way to the Moon, it shuts down non-essential services in an effort to maintain an emergency lifeline. That is, enough juice to make and hold an emergency phone call, be located, or utilize Wi-Fi. Here's how to activate it.
Taking a Live Photo is pretty neat, and as long as you can iMessage someone running iOS 9, they can share in that neatness. If you want to share with other people, or even your Mac, you'll need an alternate solution. Kelly shows the easiest way to share out that amazing Live Photo for all the world to see, regardless of device.
Live Photos are one of the new features of the iPhone 6s and 6s+. They're neat, but how do you show them off? Kelly has the scoop on how to send them to other Apple users, who can see them, and how to make them available to everyone else.
Today's Quick Tip is all about some nifty ways you can Peek and Pop your way to screen-pressing happiness with the fancy new iPhones. Yes, we know that sentence makes us sound crazy (at best). We blame Apple for giving their features such…interesting monikers.
If you have a new iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, you may be itching to play with 3D Touch, the whole-screen implementation of Force Touch that comes in the new devices. We put together a list of ten apps to make it easy for you to check it out.
iOS 8 Introduced Wi-Fi Calling and iOS 9 introduced what's called Wi-Fi Assist. They're two distinctly different features. The first has no downside, but the second could, and it's turned on by default in iOS 9. John Martellaro explains.
iPhone 6s shipped on Friday, and the first thing we did (after setting up our new devices, of course) was test out iPhone 6 cases to make sure they fit. The iPhone 6s is 0.2 mm thicker than the iPhone 6—case manufacturers have been quick to say iPhone 6 cases will fit iPhone 6s, but we wanted to test it for ourselves. [Updated with the Seidio Obex Waterproof Case.]
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus pre-orders are arriving today, and you can buy Apple's latest smartphone in stores now, too. Before you activate your shiny new iPhone, however, you need to back up your old one. That'll ensure you see everything you expect on your new phone after you finish the setup process.
The Apple Watch's activity notifications are helpful and healthful, but if you're having a day when they're annoying you rather than motivating you, you're in luck. With the newest version of watchOS, we can now mute those sorts of pop-ups temporarily! That's the subject of today's Quick Tip.
We're counting down the days until OS X El Capitan is released. Hurry up, September 30th! In the meantime, though, we want to make sure your Macs are ready for the transition. Are you sure that your old apps will function under 10.11? Have you backed up recently? (Please say yes.) Come check out our three Quick Tips on how to prepare for Apple's upcoming release.
