I do like the finish especially on the back on the 11 Pro vs. the X. Seems less prone to scratches and chips. I chipped the upper corner on the back of my X.
I ended up selling my X for $500 yesterday - decent return after two years.
This is an OS thing, doesn't need to happen with a new phone.
Ok, so I have an issue with my Iphone X. I listen to a lot of podcasts. I would download them on wifi elsewhere and when I come home, I would like to listen to it using my iTunes (I have Windows) syncing to my phone. This used to work without flaws but one day iTune suddenly stopped reading podcasts I downloaded on my phone. Any idea what is the issue here?
Not sure but I use the podcast ap on the iPhone vs Itunes. If it's still not working you could try Spotifiy for podcasts.
You may have to sign out of iTunes on your computer and then sign back in.
It took a lot longer than expected. But this new map killed the game.
Just updates Instagram, it now supports dark mode
The swipe texting is awesome. After offering years of really bad versions via apps, it's finally really well done.
Alright alright. My laptop has finally broken my last straw of patience. I edit a ton of photos on it and this year it has just bogged right down to the point of annoyance when using Adobe lightroom or Capture 1.
So I am considering just picking up an ipad as I have currently been editing my photos on my S10+ but the screen is just a bit too small to work with.
I was eyeing up the new 10.2 ipad but the 9.7 has been reduced to a very nice price for a 128gb model.
as far as I can tell there is not difference between the two besides screen size. they both use the A10 chip and as far as I have read everything else is the same.
I would prefer to go to the Air model but I kind of want to put the extra 300$ that I will save with a 9.7 towards a new camera lens.
so can anyone tell me if they have used photo editing software on the 2018 ipad and if there are any differences I missed between the 2018/2019 ipad models?
not to be that guy, but there are some good videos on the topic on YouTube
After so many years of not having it, I can't get into it. I'm faster the other way
oh I have looked but 99% of the photo and art designer youtubers received Ipad pros this past year to demo and keep for promo videos. Obviously it is the best tool but I was just trying to figure out if the A10 chip is capable enough to handle the task.
Same here. I went from using it on my Note 4, to hammerthumb on my iPhones, and never looked back. The autocorrect has improved so much that swiping would be a step back.
Apparently the AirPods Pro were announced recently. $329 CDN seems way too much for 4.5 hours of play to start with. It’s two years later and my original AirPods get about 75 minutes per full charge, if I’m lucky. 15 minutes on the right bud if I’m unlucky. I’m tempted to look at other brands for my next buds. Supposedly the sound quality on these new AirPods are dramatically improved, but I’m betting they still lag behind the competition.
They actually look pretty cool, noise-cancelling if it actually works. I love my current AirPods and I'll wait for these to be discounted, currently $249.99 with free engraving!! lol
I tried them in-store. The noise cancelling works much, much better than it does on my Beats Studio 3’s. The transparency mode works surprisingly well. Great tech, but oh so expensive.
The Apple TV app is now available for Amazon devices, rendering the retail Apple TV receivers a lot less valuable. The idea that your paid content from Apple should only be viewable on Apple’s own devices was really stupid anyway.
I got Apple TV+ for free as a student with Apple Music (I'm not a student anymore but still have access to my student email). I'm definitely gonna check out See, Morning Show, and Snoopy. But, at least for the time being, this isn't worth any amount of money per month. They only have Apple originals, and there's so few shows so far.
It seems like a tentative first step for a Apple into this market, with an option to either leverage the iTunes Store market to offer exclusive streaming or discounts, or they just give up and buy Netflix. If Apple wants to get in the video service business, they’ll have to make a choice soon. You’re right, it isn’t worth any money right now. And it won’t be until they make a big move.
Alright so... Thinking about getting the MacBook Air.
Pros and cons? Anyone who has one, is it worth the price tag?
What do you need it for?
I broke down and bought the MacBook Pro last night.
I needed something I can type reports on for work and I also liked the photo editing. It’s nice how everything integrates with my iPhone too.
Part of me wants to buy that new 16" MacBook Pro.
... And part of me wonders why the **** I would spend $2500 on a device promoted heavily on, "We went back to the 2015 keyboards that don't break and brought back the esc key."
As usual, (Since Jobs died anyways) Apple's main selling point is making their product look pretty.
But I'm also using an early 2015 Pro that's slowly but surely dying.
How does it compare to the Sony and Bose noise cancelling headphones? While I like over the ear headphones, I get the issue most people do with them - ear pain/fatigue and the heat bothering me. So I have been using beats in ear headphones (the ones that have the plastic part that wrap behind your ears and are sweatproof) and have had them for about 8yrs now and they've done more than great for me.
But the new ear pods, they're about 250+ so if I am going to spend it on that, I wonder how it compares to similar in ear noise cancelling styles.
