    2 monthes ago - By iMore

    Want to use your iPhone 8's new video formats but can't figure out how to switch them over? Here's how!
    The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have some excellent new camera features including being able to shoot 60 frames per second in 4K and a whopping 240FPS in 1080P for ultra-slow-motion video. But these two formats can take up a lot of space on your iPhone - 400MB for 4K at 60FPS , and 480MB for a 240FPS shot. As such, they're not enabled by default.
    Before you can shoot at these frame rates and sizes, you'll need to change your video format from the older H.264 format to the newer HEVC codec...

    Hands-on with Apple Music using ‘OK Google'

    Bots talking to apps is not new, but a Google property that works with an Apple property in a fluid and seamless way is kind of earth-moving. It's not as big as a recent move by Amazon to partner with Microsoft and trigger the bots from each company by voice , but we can see where all of this is going.
    In a new update for the Apple Music app on Android , you can now control your music using “OK Google” commands. I tried this by asking Google to play the latest albums by Frightened Rabbits, Dawes , and several others and it worked every time with no problems.
    The disconcerting part here is...

    GUEST: Imagine if every time Apple pushed out an update for your iPhone - from a major operating system refresh to a security patch - you were required to make an appointment at an Apple store, bring your phone in at the designated date and time, and hang around for what could be several hours waiting for your phone to be serviced. Sure, maybe there would be free Wi-Fi and good coffee, but after a while the process would become tedious and frustrating.
    “Frustrating” and “tedious” is exactly how many people would describe a visit to the service station or dealer for upkeep on their cars. A...

  • Apple has a new way to force restart or hard restart the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

    Apple has a new way to force restart or hard restart the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

    2 monthes ago - By Phone Arena

    Apple has a new way for users to do a force reset or a hard reset for the latest versions of the iPhone. On the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus, rebooting either model requires the user to press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons for at least 10 seconds. At that point, the Apple logo appears. This method cannot be used on the newer Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus because it activates the new Emergency SOS feature. With the latter, you can scroll across a slider bar to make an emergency call, or set up your phone to auto call 911 whenever the feature is...
