I am quite glad that I preordered my iPhone 6 Plus, I went for the grey 128GB phone.Thankfully I’m not queuing all night although the Apple Store staff do a great job looking after everyone.

Monitoring news developments on my iPhone

Users frustrated by Apple iOS update 

[From Lindsey] BBC give mention to iOS frustrations. “Apple iPhone and iPad users have taken to social media to express their frustration over installing the company’s latest software update.

Apple has also removed apps for its new health software because of a bug.” Deets after the jump

[From Thomas JK] I think Widgets are going to be come very popular in iOS8. “In March we reported on a new jailbreak tweak called ProWidgets that introduced a whole suite of widgets to the iOS 7 Notification Center. With today’s release of iOS 8, Avanio Labs, the company created by Alan Yip, has released several native widgets for the new operating system.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Battery Life in iOS 8 

[From Thomas JK] Useful advice. “Though iOS users may have long suspected that certain apps are responsible for battery drain, until iOS 8 there was no surefire way to know for sure as Apple didn’t make that information readily available (though some third-party apps attempted to fill in the gaps). But with iOS 8, Apple is finally allowing users to see breakdowns of which apps are using the most amount of battery. Here’s how to view your battery usage stats and what to do next.” Read in full.

iOS8 day has arrived

Remember that it is iOS8 day, so back up your iPhones and prepare top download the greatest next incarnation of iOS. Yes I am excited but I’m even more excited by the fact that my new iPhone 6 Plus will arrive tomorrow, hopefully, fingers crossed.

It is times like this I enjoy having a technology blog and the fact that PalmAddict has been going for over 15 years, my teen years were spent updating the site, it’s been a blast, anyway I hope you have a great day and enjoy using your technology. 

Apple Improves Security on by Adding Two-Factor Authentication 

[From Hans] A good move by Apple. “The Cupertino California company originally tested the extra layer of security in June, which happened to be roughly over one year after the company first introduced Apple ID accounts back in 2013. When used, two-step verification asks users who log in to provide both a password and a four-digit code, the latter of which is sent to a “trusted device” via text, iMessage or push notification.” Read in full.

Why Apple Didn’t Use Sapphire iPhone Screens 

[From Eric Mann] Interesting editorial on the screen technology behind the iPhone. “Early last month when I was on my weekend hike, I accidentally dropped my iPhone face down on the cement.

Thankfully, I was able to get a Genius Bar appointment at the Apple Store that same afternoon and got the screen replaced for the hefty price of $150.” Time Magazine website for the full read.

The new software apparently prevents both Dropbox and its photo managing app Carousel from properly uploading photos and videos to the cloud.” Read in full.
