For your pre-WWDC entertainment, I present to you Naked Scanner, by Simon Pierro. You might remember him as the magician who specializes in doing amazing magic tricks with an iPad. He ventured into the realm of candid camera trickery Monday with the help of well-rehearsed models in a gag he called Naked Scanner. It’s likely obvious how the trick was done, but the reactions of the passers by is definitely worth a smile. He talks about the trick in a blog post, including a test-video from the development phase. And don’t fret, all the bits deemed naughty are blurred.

Time Machine on macOS is an amazingly elegant backup solution. When it comes to iPhone backups, there really hasn’t been anything like Time Machine. The team behind iMazing recognized this, and have recently released the public beta of software that brings Time Machine to iOS. iMazing Mini is available for download now, and it’s a free app. With iMazing Mini, you can take “snapshots” of your devices. These are incremental backups that you can roll back to at any time. DigiDNA optimized iMazing Mini to store dozens of backups without crowding your hard drive. You can view your data easily within the full-blown version of iMazing. Probably the best feature, though, is that you can go back in time and restore any specific version of your backup quickly and easily. Of course, it’s also nice that the software is free without any ads or paid cloud storage.
