iPhone 6s promotional videoi battery 001

A sketchy Weibo post claimed two months ago that the next iPhone would arrive outfitted with a slightly stronger battery than the iPhone 6s. Today, prolific leakster OnLeaks gave us a more specific information as to precisely how bigger the iPhone 7’s battery might be in comparison to the current iPhone 6s/Plus and previous-generation iPhone 6/Plus.

According to his Twitter post, the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 will have a 1,960 mAh battery, comparing very favorably in terms of sheer specs to both the 1,715 mAh package found in the iPhone 6s and the 1,810 mAh battery in the previous-generation iPhone 6…. Read the rest of this post here

Swift Playgrouds Live Streaming iPad screenshot 002

Live streaming support for third-party apps is among the 30+ developer-focused features Apple did not discuss publicly during the WWDC 2016 keynote. Realized through ReplayKit Live, a new framework on iOS 10 that lets players share gameplay recordings or broadcast live games to other players and viewers online, the feature was originally absent from the first beta of iOS 10.

iOS 10 beta 2 turns on this functionality and, as a Reddit post noted today, live-streaming can already be found in Apple’s Swift Playgrounds app for the iPad…. Read the rest of this post here

iOS 10 tidbit: warning message when launching apps that aren’t 64-bit compliant

iOS 10 64 bit warning space gray iPhone screenshot 001

In April 2015, Apple reminded developers that as of June 2015 all apps and app updates submitted to the App Store must include 64-bit support. After more than a year, some apps are still stuck on 32 bits and lack support for 64-bit devices. iOS 10 takes a naming and shaming approach by including a brand new warning message that appears when you open a 32-bit app on a 64-bit iPhone, iPad or iPod touch….

iOS 10 Lock screen status bar teaser 001

Some folks with iOS 10 beta 2 installed on their iPhone are finding that they’ve been locked out of their Apple ID account, unable to perform a password reset. As per a new thread on Reddit, the problem seems to affect a portion of iOS 10 beta 2 users whose Apple ID account has been protected with Apple’s two-step authentication system, which requires both a password and a one-time six-digit code when using iCloud on a new device.

We’re posting this as convenience for those who have been affected. If you’re seeing this, you probably don’t need to worry about your Apple ID being hacked and unrecoverable, it’s just a bug in iOS 10 beta 2…. Read the rest of this post here

In addition to using 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to cancel or pause in-progress app downloads, iOS 10 lets you prioritize a single App Store download at the expense of the other ones with 3D Touch.

New invention paves the way for iPhones that’d optimize UI for left-handed users

Apple patent iPhone left-handed use drawing 001

The Apple Watch is designed for both left and right-handed use via a switch that prompts it to optimize the watchOS user interface for left-handed users. A similar feature could be headed to future iPhones as the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) a few days ago awarded the firm a patent for “Electronic Devices with Hand Detection Circuitry” that might let a future iPhone detect how it’s being held and tweak the Home screen and other aspects of the iOS user interface for left-handed users….

A closer look at Differential Privacy in iOS 10 and macOS Sierra

WWDC 2016 slide Differential Privacy

Making Apple services even smarter and more personalized entails processing troves of information because intelligence is driven by big data. The fact that iOS 9’s proactive features don’t tap into the cloud has served Apple well thus far. But since Google Assistant came to light, people have been wondering if Apple can compete without resorting to raw data collection Google is infamous for.

iOS 10 and macOS Sierra represent Apple’s refined approach to privacy, which revolves around new techniques collectively known as Differential Privacy. An en vogue statistical method, Differential Privacy helps Apple deliver smarter services without compromising privacy of their users.

It’s a relatively unproven technique with lots of potential which hasn’t been used to boost Apple’s services before iOS 10 and macOS Sierra. Here’s a closer look at Differential Privacy, how it powers intelligence and proactiveness and why it should serve Apple better than Google’s bulk data collection and analysis….
