They’re both part of Apple’s Switch to iPhone series, offering short metaphorical illustrations for why you should ditch other platforms for iPhone.
Dave Hamilton and Andrew Orr join Jeff Gamet to talk about why macOS and iOS won’t merge into a single operating system for now, and they look at how the iPhone’s long life span stands in contrast to Greenpeace criticism.
Running iOS apps on macOS is not the same as merging the two OSes. John explains.
Within Photos on the Mac and in the iOS app, there’s a way to unsubscribe to shared albums that you’re a part of. So if you no longer need to see twenty pictures a day of your third cousin’s new dachshund, you can opt out!

Check out this video tip from Apple on working with multiple emails at a time on iPad. This is a new feature to me, and I bet for a lot of other people, too. The short version is that you can use the handle at the top of an email you’re writing to drag it down to the bottom of your screen, where it stays docked. That allows you to peruse your inbox. If you have just one docked email, tapping it brings it back up. If you have more than one, it gives you a Safari tab-like view to pick the one you want. It’s a nifty feature. Oh, and it works in portrait and landscape mode.
Not all content is available for download though.
Apple recommends that you set up content caching on a Mac that has a wired Ethernet connection. You can do it over Wi-Fi, but performance may be affected.
There is every indication that Apple’s 2019 Mac Pro will be fundamentally different than its predecessors. John explains.
The folks at iupdateos have made a great iOS 12 concept video with all kinds of features we might hope to see in the real deal. It includes group FaceTime calls with an interface that works, and demonstrations of a Dark Mode interface that looks great. it also shows a great dynamic wallpaper I wish Apple would bring to iOS. I’d love for my Lock Screen to be dynamic. Another nice feature are Lock Screen complications. The one thing about the Notch on iPhone X I don’t like is that I can’t see whether I set my alarm from the Lock Screen. There’s one more thing I love about this video and that’s how well it’s done. The folks who made it did a terrific job. What do you think?

Prior to founding Securosis, Rich was a Research Vice President at Gartner on the security team where he also served as research co-chair for the Gartner Security Summit.

The best iOS calculator I’ve ever used is PCalc from James Thomson (TLA Systems).. By best, I don’t mean just good looks. I mean computational expertise imbued in an app that can be trusted to always get the answer right based on numerical analysis principles. PCalc is also a lot of fun, has a boatload of options in the settings, and even has an RPN mode for those who grew up with RPN on Hewlett Packard calculators. It’s Apple’s App Of The day, so head on over and get the best designed calculator money can buy. It also has watchOS support.
