6 great Android features missing from iOS 11

6 great Android features missing from iOS 11

Call me a flip-flopper, but the new features in iOS 11 have me thinking of jumping back to iOS after switching to Android barely a year ago.

Indeed, the new version of iOS brings such enticing features as a revamped App Store, a customizable Control Center, and drag-and-drop for iPad users, plus such catch-up features as one-handed typing and easy person-to-person payments.

But returning to iOS would mean leaving behind many Android features I’ve grown to love, from the ability to set up multiple user profiles to one-touch Google searches on whatever’s onscreen at a given moment.

Read on for six awesome Android features that iOS 11 has yet to match, starting with…

Nintendo Switch’s First TV Commercial Features The Legend of Zelda

Nintendo Switch’s First TV Commercial Features The Legend of Zelda

Nintendo’s first commercial for the Nintendo Switch highlights both the portability of the console and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, one of its launch titles.

Nintendo has just released the first television commercial for the Nintendo Switch, and the 30 second video unsurprisingly focuses on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, its strongest launch day title. The video also features a healthy split of focus between both showing off the console’s portability, and displaying some snazzy gameplay footage courtesy of Breath of the Wild.

It’s no surprise that Nintendo would choose to focus on one of their most exciting Nintendo Switch titles of 2017 for the company’s first foray into Nintendo Switch television advertisements, as other more high profile titles like Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe won’t be arriving till further after the console’s launch. As it currently stands, Breath of the Wild is the de facto launch day attraction, sharing the launch day roster with just 4 other titles.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a good choice to give the masses for their first look at the Nintendo Switch, though the title itself isn’t exclusive to the console. Nintendo has promised that the game will arrive for the Wii U on the same day, and failure to deliver on that would upset a lot of Wii U-based fans. While the gameplay will be completely the same for both consoles, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma stated that the Nintendo Switch would feature faster load times and a higher resolution. However, when stored locally the game will take up half the space of the Nintendo Switch’s entire HDD, which means many Nintendo gamers will likely be expanding this storage with SDXC cards.

Nintendo revealed in a recent Switch Presentation that the console would sport between a 2.5 to 6 hours of battery life depending on what is being run on the console, so whether gamers could feasibly take the device from home, onto a public bus, and then onto a flight in one go remains to be tested. That being said, the guy in the commercial didn’t take any luggage with him, so it was probably a short trip.

In any event, the Nintendo Switch is certainly more portable than its rival consoles, although the facts revealed at the presentation weren’t enough to prevent Nintendo’s stocks from falling after the event concluded.

What do you think about the Nintendo Switch, Ranters? Does the commercial do a good job in showing off both the console and Breath of the Wild?

The Nintendo Switch will release on March 3, 2017, alongside The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Apple enhances iOS features for hearing impaired

Tech giant Apple has enhanced its iOS accessibility features for users with hearing impairments, according to a report by Appleinsider.

Features like Bluetooth-based AirPod-style streaming, Live Listen, have been enhanced, focusing on conversations in loud environment for hearing impairments.

Apple first introduced MFi support for Bluetooth hearing aids in iOS 7 and iPhone 4s.

Its latest software expands support for direct streaming of phone calls, FaceTime conversations, movies and other audio to supported hearing aids, without the need for a middleman device known as a “streamer”.

New iOS 10 hearing aid also features integrated device battery life and independent base, treble, right and left volume controls, and supports audiologist-designed presets for handling sound from concerts or restaurants, the report said.

In addition to supporting audio originating on the phone, the new Live Listen feature also allows users to relay focused audio picked up by the iPhone’s mic, enabling clearer conversations when in a loud environment.

Twitter unveils features to filter tweets, notifications

Twitter has announced two new settings that will allow users to control what they see in their feeds and what notifications they receive.

Twitter says in a blog post that it has modified its notification settings to include the ability to see only notifications from people they follow. It’s also introducing what it calls a “quality filter” that it says can improve the quality of tweets users see. Twitter says the feature will filter out duplicate tweets or content that appears to be automated.

The announcement from San Francisco-based Twitter comes a month after “Saturday Night Live” and “Ghostbusters” star Leslie Jones publicly called on Twitter to do more to curb harassment on the platform. Twitter banned one user in response to the incident.

Windows 10: The best hidden features, tips, and tricks

Image result for Windows 10: The best hidden features, tips, and tricks

Now that Windows 10 Anniversary Update is out and millions of people are running it, let’s take a look at some of the best hidden features, tips, and tricks in the operating system. Windows 10 combines the best of Windows 8 — super-fast startup, improved security — with much of what made Windows 7 familiar and easy to use, and without trying to force you to buy a touch screen or learn a whole set of hidden UI gestures. The Anniversary Update only makes it that much sweeter.

And if you’re a computer nut like me, tweaking the OS is always the fun part. Discovering and implementing power user tips are my favorite part of getting a major new version of an OS. I still remember back when DOS 5.0 came out, and I was running DOS 3.3, and I got to try all these new things to optimize my 286. And when I upgraded from Windows/286 to Windows 3.0, I felt like my life had changed. (We’ve come a long way.) Nostalgia aside, here’s what you need to know to amp up your Windows 10 install and take it to the next level.

New fifth-gen Apple TV 2016 release date & features rumours: ‘Something bigger’ on the way for Apple TV, says Tim Cook | Apple TV 5 launch rumoured for late 2016

New Apple TV release date & new features rumours

When will Apple release the next Apple TV – the fifth-generation Apple TV – in the UK? And what new features, tech specs and design changes should we expect from the new 5G Apple TV for 2016 or 2017?

The fourth-gen Apple TV – the first Apple TV device to allow users to install apps – was unveiled by Apple at the iPhone 6s launch event on 9 September 2015, and went onsale weeks later. Nearly a year later, we’re looking ahead to the launch of the next, fifth-gen (5G) Apple TV. Indeed, there are already rumours that a next-generation Apple TV might arrive in late 2016, although Apple could also be waiting until next year to release a special 10th-anniversary model.

In this article we gather all the evidence related to the fifth-gen Apple TV’s launch date, as well as reporting on all the rumours and clues about the 2016 Apple TV’s new features, tech specs and design changes. However, if you’re (understandably) still interested in the Apple TV that’s available right now, we’ve got plenty of information about the 2015 Apple TV, including pricing and the best places to buy.

Updated, 27 July 2016, to discuss Tim Cook’s enigmatic comments about the future of the Apple TV at Apple’s Q3 financial results call.

New Apple TV 2016 release date rumours: When will Apple release the 5th-gen Apple TV?

Our money is on autumn 2016, although Apple may choose to hold it back until the start of 2017 and make more of the product’s 10th anniversary.

Here’s when the four generations of Apple TV launched:

  • 1st-gen Apple TV: January 2007
  • 2nd-gen Apple TV: September 2010
  • 3rd-gen Apple TV: March 2012
  • 4th-gen Apple TV: September 2015

Evidently, Apple updates its Apple TV less often than its iPhones, iPads and Macs: there was a three-and-a-half-year wait between the first and second models, and between the third and fourth. Based on that, it would be reasonable to expect the 5G Apple TV to appear in 2018 or even 2019, and we certainly don’t have firm evidence to dispute that.

But our instincts tell us that the Apple TV’s position and status in the company’s portfolio of products has changed. It used to be a sideline and a hobby, but with the growing importance of streaming media and smart-home applications, and with the arrival on the platform of games and its own App Store, Apple TV is moving to centre stage.

And we’re not the only ones to think Apple is likely to start updating the TV more frequently from now on.

A report (link for subscribers only) in DigiTimes last year predicted that the fifth-generation Apple TV would go into trial production as early as December 2015, with volume production starting in the first quarter of 2016. Changes were said to include a dramatically improved hardware performance and new functions “to help it no longer serve only as a set-top box”.

Q3 2016 earnings call comments: ‘Something bigger’ on the way

Tim Cook made some non-specific but intriguing comments about the future of the Apple TV at Apple’s Q3 2016 earnings conference call. He made it very clear that Apple has big plans for its TV division, and plans to build “something bigger” with the product and surrounding ecosystem.

Near the end of the hour-long call, a question was posed by Kulbinder Garcha, the managing director of Credit Suisse:

“I think about some of the comments you’ve made about the TV market and how it’s been stuck in the sixties and seventies, and the experience hasn’t changed,” Garcha said. “I understand that you’ve got the Apple TV box out, but in terms of driving actual video-on-demand services, is that something Apple wants to do themselves, do you want to partner, could you even build content? How do you think about that as an actual business opportunity, as opposed to, here’s an Apple box and we sell some units but it’s not that meaningful to the overall company in terms of size?”

Tim Cook’s reply was enigmatic.

“The introduction of Apple TV and tvOS in last October and the subsequent OS releases and what’s coming out this fall… think of that as building the foundation for what we believe can be a broader business over time,” he said.

“I don’t want to be more precise than that but you shouldn’t look at what’s there today and think we’ve done what we want to do. We’ve built a foundation that we can do something bigger off of.”

New Apple TV release date: WWDC 2016 and tvOS 10

Back in spring we argued that the 5G Apple TV was unlikely to be launched at WWDC 2016, since the event came round less than a year after Apple rolled out the fourth-gen model and none of the previous Apple TVs had launched in summer. Indeed, Apple launched no new hardware at the event whatsoever. But the new version of the Apple TV’s operating system, tvOS 10, got considerable stage time. As we often observe when discussing new iPhones and iPads, many of the most significant updates come not from new hardware but from free software updates.

Siri gets some big improvements in tvOS’s new update: it can now search the Apple TV’s movie and TV database with more complex queries. It can search YouTube, too, and any live streaming channels can be launched by saying “watch” and then the name of the channel. There’s a new dark mode for Apple TV, which makes the background black instead of the bright white we’re used to. And the Apple TV Remote app has been redesigned; it now offers all the Siri remote features and can be used for Siri queries using the built-in mic.

(Speaking of the Remote app, did you know that there’s a SiriMote app that’s been designed to let you control your Mac with an Apple TV Siri Remote? You’ll be able to use the app and Siri Remote together to control playback on your Mac, but accordingto Apple Insider the setup is difficult. The app is free and works with El Capitan. You can download it from Eternal Storms at eternalstorms.at.)

One last thing Apple didn’t mention, but has since come to light in Apple support documents, is that the requirement for Siri Remote compatibility for Apple TV games has been relaxed. That means they can focus on MFi game controllers, which are much more game-friendly than the Siri remote. See: Best Apple TV game controllers.

Read our Complete guide to tvOS’s new features for more information on the software update.

New Apple TV release date: 10th-anniversary Apple TV

Looking again at those launch dates above, we feel like the looming tenth anniversary of the Apple TV might be a tempting occasion for a big update. Apple tends to dislike historical wallowing – famously refusing to build a museum in its new headquarters because “we’re focused on the future, not the past” – but there is a precendent for an anniversary product in the form of the Twentieth Anniversary Mac (number 4 in our article The 5 weirdest Macs of all time).

once Apple’s hardware begins to assist the brand new fashionable, it won’t be long before we start to gain the blessings. those include stepped forward flash memory optimization, quicker Time device backups and improved area allocation letting two APFS-formatted disks act as one combined garage pressure. regrettably, for legacy Mac users this indicates HFS guide will be ousted within the subsequent 25 years, although it’d be a miracle if your pc could nevertheless boot up with the aid of then.

New Features Boost Sharing via Facebook Live

facebook-live-video

Facebook on Wednesday announced enhanced Facebook Live video capabilities with additional features to allow members to share live video with friends and family by broadcasting events or sharing video in groups.

Users can go live in Facebook groups so that a group of users or friends or family members can be sent specific video feeds.

The live events capability allows users to feed video from an event such as a birthday party or let a performer give a sneak peek backstage at an event. Users also can use events to schedule a live question-and-answer session, for example.

The Facebook Live feature has an interactive quality, with the ability to post live reactions from viewers, where emojis express instant feedback to a live event and then disappear.

Live Video Activity Explodes

Data collected since the company began live video feeds shows that users get 10 times more comments on live video feeds than regular video postings, Facebook said. It plans to repost comments from live video feeds when they are replayed later.

Facebook also is introducing five live filters as a way to let users personalize their live video feeds. The company plans to introduce the ability to draw or doodle on top of videos.

As a way to share the experience, Facebook will let users invite friends to watch live video along with them, so tapping on the invite icon will alert the friend to accept the invitation after a push notification.

It will alert the masses about the most trending video feeds at any given time, so the mobile app will let users search for live video that is the most talked about at any given time.

A Facebook Live Map for the desktop application allows users in more than 60 countries to search for the hottest trending live videos.

To make it easier to measure the response to videos, Facebook launched metrics to get a feel for the demand for any particular post. Total live viewers for a broadcast and the total number of concurrent live viewers will be available through Page Insights and your Video Library. The figures soon will be available for the API and export.

Enhance the Live Event

Facebook’s expanded live video capabilities is part of an effort to formalize it as a proper media type for individual users and businesses, according to Brian Blau, research vice president at Gartner.

“The unique nature of a live event, one that is personal or one from a brand that is global and well- known, is that it’s live and in the moment,” he told the E-Commerce Times. “Connecting with friends or fans using that live moment as a focal point can enhance the impact of that event, or provide a deeper and more personal experience.”

Facebook also is working to counter the impact of live video sites likePeriscope, which is owned by Twitter, and YouTube, which is reportedly planning to come out with a live interactive video feature, said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT.

“That’s sensible from a competitive standpoint and also speaks to Facebook’s belief in the increasingly critical role video will play across its business interests,” he told the E-Commerce Times.

Facebook ventured into the live video arena last year when it launched Live for Facebook Mentions, which allowed verifiable public figures to post videos to their fan base, with Q&A sessions, backstage sneak peeks, announcements and other events.

The move comes weeks after a report in VentureBeat that Google has been working on a Periscope competitor called “YouTube Connect.”

2015 iMac release date, specs, price & features: Apple launches 21.5in Retina iMac, updates 27in iMacs with Skylake

As predicted, Apple has updated its entire range of iMacs to bring the Retina screen to the smaller models for the first time and give the bigger models new Skylake chips. Here, we bring you everything you need to know about the new 2015 iMac line-up, including their release dates, price and specs as unveiled by Apple on 13 October.

It’s been over two years since Apple last updated its four original non-Retina versions of the iMac (if you don’t include the cheaper iMac which Apple introduced in June 2014 – now more than a year old). The big surprise was that Apple left the 21.5in iMacs (which previously lacked a Retina display option) completely untouched despite recently adding a new, cheaper 27in Retina model to its line-up.

We had originally expected new iMacs to be shown off during WWDC 2015 back in June, and then during Apple’s 9 September event, but the company has instead chosen 13 October to quietly launch the updates.

“From the first iMac to today, the spirit of iMac has never wavered – deliver the ultimate desktop experience with the latest technologies, gorgeous displays and cutting-edge designs,” said Apple’s SVP of Worldwide Marketing Philip Schiller in Apple’s press release. “These are the most stunning iMacs we’ve ever made. With our gorgeous new displays, more powerful processors and graphics and all-new Magic accessories, the new iMac continues to redefine the ultimate desktop experience.”

As ever, Phil’s words are a bit on the dramatic side there, but there have been some significant improvements and changes to the iMac line-up so read on to find out more.

To discover what we think about the original Retina 5K iMac, take a look at our Retina iMac review. If you are in the market for a new Mac, read our iMac or Mac mini – Mac desktops compared and Best Mac to buy: Mac Buying Guide.

2015 iMac release date: When are the new iMacs coming out?

Apple’s new 27in iMac with Retina 5K comes in three models, each available to buy today from Apple’s website, retail stores and Apple Authorised Resellers, as are the two new models of non-Retina 21.5in iMac and the all-new 21.5in iMac with Retina 4K display.

Each new iMac will ship with Apple’s new Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2 (which we’ll talk about later in this article) and there’s the option to order the new Magic Trackpad 2 at checkout.

2015 iMac price UK: How much do the new iMacs cost?

The 2015 models of the 21.5in iMac are priced as follows:

1.6GHz processor, 1TB Storage: £899
2.8GHz processor, 1TB Storage: £1,049
Retina 4K display, 3.1GHz processor, 1TB Storage: £1,199.

The 2015 models of the 27in iMac (all of which come with Retina 5K display) are priced as follows:

3.2GHz pricessor, 1TB storage: £1,449
3.2GHz processor, 1TB storage (Fusion Drive): £1,599
3.3GHz processor, 2TB storage (Fusion Drive): £1,849

The great news is that prices haven’t changed. Even the new 4K 21in iMac costs the same as the equivalent model did previously.

2015 iMac specs: What new features and tech do the new iMacs have?

Apple’s 21.5 iMac is now available with a Retina 4K display for the first time, offering a resolution of 4096 x 2304, which equates to a total of 9.4 million pixels on the top of the range model. That’s more than four times the number of pixels in the standard 21.5in iMac models, of which two remain.

All three of Apple’s new 27in iMac models now have a Retina 5K display, which boasts 14.7 million pixels. Previously only two of the 27in iMacs offered a Retina display. Plus, Apple says that it’s improved the colour gamut in its Retina displays too, for 25 percent larger colour space. Apparently, these displays are capable of displaying 99 percent of the P3 colour space.

Aside from the new Retina displays, all of the new iMac models look the same as their predecessors, with the now-familiar design that’s impressively thin at the edges.

Beneath those Retina displays, the new 27in iMacs have Intel’s sixth-generation Core processors, otherwise known as Skylake. That’s paired with AMD Radeon R9 graphics with 2GB video memory.

Apple has opted to update its 21.5in iMac models from fourth-generation Haswell processors to fifth-generation Broadwell rather than sixth-generation Skylake, but Apple says this is because Intel hasn’t yet made Skylake available with integrated graphics processors. The Broadwell processors in the new 21.5in iMacs sit alongside enhanced Intel Iris Pro Graphics.

The base configuration for the new 21.5in iMacs is a 1TB 5,400 hard drive, which seems a shame because you’ll find it’s much slower than the Fusion Drive option available if you cough up some extra cash (something we’d strongly recommend doing in this case).

One final thing, it had been so long since the 21in iMacs had been updated that they still used Thunderbolt 1 ports. Now they have been updated to Thunderbolt 2.

Read more about the specs of the new iMacs in our review of the new 21.5in 4K iMac.

2015 iMac specs: How to get 64GB RAM for the new 27in iMac

According to Apple’s build to order page for purchasing the new 27in iMac it is possible to upgrade the new models to take 32GB RAM, in four 8GB slots. 32GB of RAM costs £480 as a build to order option from Apple.

However, it has emerged that it will be possible to update the new 27in iMacs to take 64GB RAM, in four 16GB slots, just as soon as the compatible memory becomes available, according to 9to5Mac.

The good news is that where the RAM in the 21in iMacs is soldered on, the RAM in the 27in iMacs is user upgradable plug-in RAM, so, after purchase users will be able to purchase the upgrade kits from the likes of OWC, and, we expect, Crucial. OWC has announced that it will be selling a 64GB RAM kit for $1195 and a 48GB RAM kit for $729. German reseller Memphis has been in touch to confirm that they will be selling 64GB RAM for the new iMac on Amazon UK – you can buy the 64GB RAM-Kit here for £575.

New Magic accessories: Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2

In addition to the launch of new iMacs, Apple has also introduced new wireless accessories including the all-new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2. Apple says they’ve each been developed to feel more comfortable than every, and they also feature rechargeable batteries for the first time. Plus, the Magic Trackpad 2 boasts Force Touch technology like that found in the trackpads of some of Apple’s new MacBooks.

The new Magic Mouse 2 is lighter and sturdier accodring to Apple, ans should have a smoother glide than the original, while the Magic Keyboard is 13 percent smaller than its predecessor with an even lower profile. It uses a new scissor mechanism for the keys too.

More to follow (we’re updating this article right this moment).

On page two is everything we wrote before today’s iMac announcement. Read on to find out how much of the speculation was accurate.
