Google just announced that the native YouTube app for iOS will now support Picture in Picture mode. The feature is currently only rolling out to users in the United States, but should be available in other countries soon. At the moment, the mode is available for YouTube Premium users in the US, but it'll soon be available for all users. The Picture in Picture mode will allow users to play YouTube videos in an overlay and use another app at the same time.
We haven't even seen the 2021 iPhone lineup yet, but that isn't stopping the rumor mill from looking ahead. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is back with another note, outlining what he expects to see from Apple next year. And it looks like Touch ID may get its time in the limelight again soon enough.
Twitter's Super Follows and Ticketed Spaces monetization features have entered testing with a subset of users, offering a generous revenue-sharing model for creators.
iPhone app sideloading and third-party app stores would undermine user security and expose children to scam, Apple argues in a newly published document on its website.
Of the multitude of different things I use on my iPhone on a daily basis, the Calculator and Phone apps are definitely high on that list.
But sometimes life catches us in a pinch, and that’s why having the ability to access these tools without unlocking our iPhones and finding and launching the Calculator or Phone apps can come in handy.
On any stock iPhone or iPad, swiping left or right on the Home Screen results in a paging effect as you move from one page to the next. This paging animation automatically locks your focus to the next or previous page of app icons, dependent on which way you swiped.
Some people like the paging animation, but it’s something that has been around since the dawn of the iPhone. If you’d prefer something a little different, then we might suggest checking out a new and free jailbreak tweak release called Flowing by iOS developer TitanD3v.
iPhone owners have been begging Apple to implement some sort of Android-style keyboard haptic feedback for as long as I can remember.
Fast forward to the post-Taptic Engine world we live in today, and we still don’t have the option to enable keyboard haptic feedback on stock iPhones.
Apple's iPhone usually feature an excellent camera, and can take some really good photos and videos. Several users also place the iPhone on a tripod, or lean it against a rock, to take group shots or shoot jitter free videos. Of course, you can set a timer and be done with it. However, there are ways to capture photos and videos totally hands-free.
Apple has been researching bringing light field panoramic imaging to the iPhone camera, a feature that would let you immerse yourself while exploring captured scenes with parallax, clear object separation and other visual effects in virtual or augmented reality.
The Apple TV remote could gain UWB functionality in a future model, enabling you to point the remote at different accessories to quickly switch between things like TVs and Hi-Fi receivers.
Getting to your iPhone or iPad’s UDID (unique device identifier) is more work than it should be. Ordinary users can connect their device to a computer or visit a specialized website to view their handset’s UDID. Jailbreakers have the option find their UDID in their favorite package manager.
But even after finding it, there’s sometimes a need to copy and paste the UDID elsewhere, such as for certain jailbreak tweak activations and other fringe scenarios.
When designing the Camera app for the iPhone, Apple tried to make the user interface as easy to use as possible.
On one hand, the Camera app interface echoes simplicity in its design principles. On the other, it can be aesthetically displeasing given the substantial amount of black barring at the top and bottom of the interface.
