Building on the previous update which enabled RAW shooting and editing, the new Camera+ version 9.1 includes new RAW options for saving and exporting images at the best possible quality.

This minimalist case turns your iPhone jet black (or jet white)

By Sébastien Page on Mar 17, 2017

Besides a redesigned camera bump, one of the main differentiator between the iPhone 7 and its predecessor was the new jet black colorway. It’s beautiful and sexy, but as Apple was quick to point out, it’s also incredibly prone to micro abrasions.

The solution offered is to put it in a case, which clearly defeats the purpose of having a jet black iPhone to begin with. And that’s where the folks at Totallee come in with the Scarf, their incredibly light and thin case, now available in jet black and jet white. Read More

 

Latest iPhone 7 ad is all about iMessage stickers

By Christian Zibreg on Mar 13, 2017

Apple on Monday via its YouTube channel shared a brand new television commercial for iPhone 7, titled “Sticker Fight”. Much like its September 2016 “Balloons” ad, the most recent 60-second video takes another iOS 10 iMessage feature to the real-world: sticker packs. “Say it with stickers on iPhone 7,” reads the tagline. Apple also created a new App Store section where you can download all of the stickers featured in the ad. Read More

 

Alto makes a top-contending leather case for most iPhone models

By Anthony Bouchard on Mar 9, 2017

Over the last few weeks, we have shown you a number of the top leather case brands for iPhones, but another that we feel deserves attention is Alto.

Hand-crafted with fine Italian leather, Alto cases are subtly formed out of what feels like surreal perfection. If you’re one to judge products closely, and every bit of quality matters to you, then Alto’s attention to detail is likely to impress. Read More

 

Google Maps gains 3D Touch place previews

By Christian Zibreg on Feb 27, 2017

Last week, I whined about Google dragging its feet when it comes to implementing support for important iOS features, like 3D Touch, in apps such as Gmail. Other iPhone and iPad apps from Google have been more aggressive in adopting 3D Touch features, including Maps. In the latest update, Google Maps was bumped to version 4.28 and now allows users who have an iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus to press places on the map to get quicker access to popular actions.

Apple looking into widely circulated video showing iPhone 7 Plus catching fire

By Christian Zibreg on Feb 24, 2017

Earlier this week, Brianna Olivas posted a video showing her iPhone 7 Plus spontaneously catching fire, resulting in a partially melted device. Soon after, the video went viral and has thus far accumulated more than 1.2 million views.

The video has been retweeted more than 26,000 times and liked by more than 27,000 accounts, prompting a response from an Apple spokesperson which said in an official statement to Mashable that the company is looking into the incident. Read More

 

17 months later, Gmail gains a single 3D Touch shortcut

By Christian Zibreg on Feb 22, 2017

Google today refreshed its mobile Gmail app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch on App Store, adding very limited 3D Touch support nearly a year and a half after Apple first brought pressure sensing to iPhone’s display with the September 2015 release of iPhone 6s.

Owners of the iPhone 6s/7 series can now press Gmail’s icon to quickly compose a message, but that’s about it. Thank you, Google, but seriously?

In my view, Google doesn’t really have a clue how to properly build 3D Touch gestures into Gmail in a manner that would save users time and boost their productivity.

The app still lacks Peek and Pop gestures., but we’ll get those next year, right? Read More
