Dave Hamilton and John F. Braun share their thoughts and experiences with the new technologies Apple announced at WWDC this week.
The Android-like features in iOS 14 surely have the pundits talking. Jeff Butts tells us this isn’t bad, just a sign that times have changed.
If you have hearing problems, this new iOS 14 accessibility feature, Sound Monitoring, can alert you to important noises.
Michael Grothaus interviewed Craig Federighi where he talks about iOS 14 privacy features. One feature is restricted access to the system clipboard/pasteboard. Apps will no longer have full access, which was a problem in the past.
Though there isn’t a lot of evidence apps have done this on a wide scale, apps will now require your approval to access the pasteboard for the first time. If a messaging app requests approval, it’s probably legit–but look out if, say, a free gaming app wants to get at your pasteboard.
As regular readers can guess, I’m excited for the new privacy features in iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur.
Amid all of the announcements today we’re getting some new privacy features in iOS 14. Here are two main ones coming this year.
Good news: If you can download iOS 13, you can download iOS 14. Here’s the iOS 14 device support list for iPhones.
Apple announced plenty of awesome iOS 14 features coming this year. Here are nine of the biggest features that customers will love.
Messages is set to get a big upgrade in iOS 14 with an overhaul to Groups and new Memoji accessories on the way too.
Apple leaker Fudge (@choco_bit) claims that a new feature coming to iOS 14 will be called Sleep Mode.
When Sleep Mode is enabled, the lockscreen will dim, calls and alerts that arrive while locked will be silenced, and notifications will be sent to history. Emergency alerts will break through. Sleep will analyze your sleep patterns based on your iPhone usage at night.
Bedtime in the Clock app can set an alarm and track your time in bed. Do Not Disturb can silence calls and alerts. So if this rumor is true then it sounds Apple is rebranding and combining these disparate features into one Sleep Mode toggle.
Apple shared post to its developer page to give advice on how to file great bug reports. It’s also good advice for people who like to beta test Apple software, so bookmark the page once iOS 14 and macOS 10.16 Redwood have been announced (I’m taking this opportunity to make my macOS name prediction).
You should always file feedback for any bugs you find while developing on Apple’s platforms; after all, we can’t fix problems that we don’t know about. But how can you be sure that the information you provide is helpful for triaging the issue, rather than a bug-solving dead end? Here are some of our top tips for making sure your bug report is clear, actionable, and — most importantly — fixable.
John Martellaro and Charlotte Henry join host Kelly Guimont to discuss humans beating robots at manufacturing, and a peek at iOS 14.
At WWDC later in June, we can expect to see a preview of iOS 14. But an early build reveals some of the coming changes, iOS 14 glimpses.
A report from Motherboard today finds that a leaked version of iOS 14 has been circulating around the hacking and security community since at least February. Sources claim someone bought a development iPhone 11 running iOS 14 from a Chinese vendor in December 2019.
“That sucks,” said a current Apple employee, who didn’t have knowledge of the leak. Another current Apple employee told Motherboard that they spoke to other employees referencing the leaks. Both employees asked to remain anonymous as they were not allowed to talk to the press. A source in the cybersecurity industry said, his team has this leaked version of iOS 14, and they are studying it.
Like Will Strafach, I too feel bad for whomever Apple rains fire upon.
According to an early build of iOS 14, the code suggests new changes are coming to iCloud Keychain, like support for two-factor authentication codes.
