The iPhone is a smartphone made by Apple Inc. It and the iPad, along with several other mobile devices from Apple, run on the iOS operating system, which has its own topic, as does the iPad for device-specific questions. Native iOS applications are written in Objective-C or in Swift using the Cocoa Touch frameworks or HTML5 compiled with the help of a package manager such as Adobe PhoneGap; a common IDE is Xcode.

Looks good from the pics.. not game to install it though.. Both my IPhone and IPad are too important to me day to day to risk installing a beta on either of them :)

Personally, I've loved having the notifications. Even when I mostly do things via the web interface on my laptop, getting the notification on the phone (which will even forward to my watch) has been great! Easily my favorite part. :-)

Happy Saturday!

If you still have one of those old unlimited data plans on AT&T and you happen to reach 22GB for the month, AT&T is going to throttle you like a Le Mans driver downshifts. Enjoy! ;)

Thanks for the head's up! Fortunately, I think I manage to stay well under that, but I'll have to be sure to keep an eye on it.

More and more, lately...  Great conversation on that question, though. Thanks for mentioning it, Kyle!

Last week I loved San Luis Obispo company Farmbot.  This week I love San Luis Obispo based company iFixit. (and of course I love SLO company EE). This is a great article in the latest issue of Inc Magazine re: their company - and why Apple hates them.  Relevant here at EE for hardware / software types.

Apple doesn't like iFixit, because iFixit writes its own in-house versions of Apple's top-secret repair manuals and shares them with all comers.

Then again, iFixit doesn't like Apple either. At iFixit headquarters in San Luis Obispo, California, the recycling goes in cans labeled with iFixit's logo--it resembles a Phillips screw head--while the cans with the Apple logo are for trash.

Wot!? Seems like a bit of sensationalism here...

Anyone familiar with Google Photos and iCloud photos/videos storage tips and tricks?  I made a suggestion, but wondered if anyone else had any ideas for the asker?

iOS 10.3 just released yesterday. I updated mine last night and it seems to have gone totally smooth, which is fairly impressive given that the release included a completely new file system! That must have been a tricky bit of engineering (and I can only imagine the QA effort involved...) Not only that, but there were AppleTV, iPad, and WatchOS updates that also all had the same file system update. Impressive roll-out to coordinate all that for release on the same day!

Anyone else update yet? How'd it go?

If you're paranoid, then certainly feel free to do both. Then try the restore from iCloud if/when you get a new phone and see if that covers what you needed!

It is worth testing.  I'm anxious to see if the iPhone 8 is gonna be worth nearly a grand.  If it has wireless charging...I'm probably sold haha

In the office today, some co-workers and I got into a tangent conversation where one of us was fairly perplexed at how someone who is blind can use modern tech (computers, smartphones, etc) at all, given the heavy emphasis on visual design, graphical interfaces, and touchscreens. We talked about screen readers, but since none of us are blind, we really only understand them at a surface level. It reminded me of this article which covers an interview with someone who is legally blind about how they make incredibly effective use of an iPhone, with the screen completely off.

It's absolutely fascinating and provided that deeper dive into accessibility features and how they work, with the specific case of Apple's award winning VoiceOver feature on the iPhone.

It triggered several thoughts for me, like:
  • This is so cool...
  • It's amazing what sort of incredibly powerful features exist in the things we use, that we probably have absolutely no idea about
  • Could easily see the pure ROI case for these features not being good, but that it's wonderful Apple has done this anyway!
  • I bet a bunch of the research and work on these features contributed to Siri
  • Bet it'll also play into future Augmented Reality features too...

On that same note, a while ago I came across this answer on Quora that fascinated me:
https://www.quora.com/How-does-a-visually-impaired-computer-programmer-program/answer/Tommy-MacWilliam?srid=2EqG

It's written by an engineering manager from Quora, about his experience with a close friend who went blind and was also a programmer.

@LucasBishop thanks for sharing.  I found it amusing. These programmers are amazing and my take away is that there are no limitations when we want do accomplish something.

And if you're really looking for a redundant backup for your GoPro - this is the newest edition to my family.  Turn it on, pop in the SD card, and backup is complete!

Nice.  I shared that with a buddy of mine who uses his GoPro on his drone.

I talked to Verizon today.  They have me doing the strangest work around to an error I'm encountering through their website.  There is an error displaying when I'm completing an action by trying to transfer other phone lines into my account.  This is generated in an email that is sent to me.  So, to fix what I'm running into, they sent me 4 of the same email and said "try one email link each hour until it works.  Our server should be up by then.  If that still doesn't work, then call us back."

Yeah...

LOL. How silly. Giving you busy work, so that you feel they're doing something for you. Hopefully they get a fix in place soon.

I ended up having to call again. :|

The people who helped me this time realized I'd been put through enough and they had it resolved in a half hour.  So I'm all setup and saving more money on my monthly bill...and I have unlimited data...FINALLY.

I'm writing this post from my iPhone just to check how well it works on mobile. You should try it from your mobile device too! I'd be curious to hear how it goes for you.
