Sixth Generation iPad Receives The Teardown

Sixth Generation iPad Receives The Teardown

Sixth Generation iPad Receives The Teardown

Sixth Generation iPad Receives The Teardown

iFixit today published their teardown of Apple’s sixth-generation, education-focused iPad and found that the tablet shares many of the internals of the fifth-gen iPad. The teardown crew also looked at the new iPad’s potential for durability and repairability in an education environment by comparing it to competitors in the field.

The new iPad’s lack of waterproofing, non-replaceable charging port, zero upgradeability, and use of glue throughout the internals added up to a “repair nightmare.” iFixit then pointed towards the HP Elite x2 1012 G1 tablet, which got a perfect repairability score of 10 out of 10, summarizing that “Apple’s ‘education’ iPad is still a case of won’t — not can’t.”

Looking into the iPad’s internals, the two major updates in the new tablet are an upgraded A10 processor and Broadcom chips for Apple Pencil support. iFixit got a peek inside the iPad using Creative Electron’s X-ray imaging software, discovering “only minor differences” when compared to a similar X-ray of the previous iPad.

Sixth Generation iPad Receives The Teardown

One of the iPad’s advantages in terms of repairability comes in the form of its digitizer panel easily separating from the display. iFixit pointed out that in the event that either component should break, repair will be easier for schools and educators.

In the education space, Apple has some stiff competition in the form of low-cost, Google-powered laptops. How does this iPad, er, stack up against a Chromebook from HP or Asus? Given that schoolkids can be a bit rough on their electronics, here’s an iFixit take on it:

iPad’s glued-glass display is more vulnerable to drops. Thankfully, this is the one iPad that retains an air-gapped digitizer panel—not as visually impressive as other recent iPads, but it’s much cheaper to replace cracked glass that isn’t LOCA-bonded to the display panel underneath. Separate accessories like the keyboard and Pencil add to the cost and are easier to lose—but are also easier to replace if damaged. (Note the missing key on our HP’s keyboard.)

Eventually, iFixit got down to the logic board and discovered the iPad’s A10 Fusion processor and two Broadcom touch screen controller chips, previously found in the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models. iFixit theorized that the new iPad’s Apple Pencil support “comes in part thanks to this “Pro”-grade chip.”

The sixth-gen iPad has the same battery as the previous model, with 32.9 Wh capacity. iFixit noted that while this allows Apple to reuse existing manufacturing lines to reduce waste, the battery is still locked behind a “repair-impeding adhesive” that greatly reduced the iPad’s repairability score. Apple has provided easy battery removal before, in the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but iFixit hasn’t seen anything like it since.

Ultimately, iFixit gave the 2018 iPad a repairability score of 2 out of 10, favoring the fairly easy repair options of its air-gapped, non-fused display and digitizer glass, but taking marks off for its heavy use of adhesive and sticky tape. To read the full teardown, visit iFixit.com.

How to update HomePod

How to update HomePod

How to update HomePod

How to update HomePod

You are no doubt already familiar with the process for updating your iPhone, iPad, or even Apple TV, but with the HomePod receiving its first update today, it’s likely that many people are not aware of how to get iOS 11.3.0 onto their new smart speaker.

If you have a HomePod, and need to update it now or at any point in the future, here’s the process you need to follow.

Step 1: On your iOS device, open the stock Home app.

Step 2: Select the “Home” tab from the bottom.

Step 3: Now tap on the arrow in the top-left corner of the screen.

Step 4: Scroll down and under SPEAKERS, you should find Software Update section. Tap on it.

Step 5: Now, if there is an update available for your HomePod, it will be listed here. If an OTA update shows up, just hit the Install button and you’re off to the races.

That’s all there is to it; once the process completes, your HomePod will be all updated and running the latest version of the OS.

You can, of course, set your devices to automatically update, too, should you prefer to just let the system work its magic silently. I like to know exactly when updates are being applied, but it’s your choice entirely.

How to Disable True Tone on iPhone Displays

How to Disable True Tone on iPhone Displays

How to Disable True Tone on iPhone Displays

The latest iPhone models include a feature called True Tone, which automatically adjusts the iPhone display white balance to better match the ambient lighting surrounding you.

In practice this means the screen gets warmer in warm lighting, and cooler in cool lighting, sort of like how Night Shift works but not quite as dramatic and not limited only to the evening.

Chances are if you have an iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8, or iPhone X, you’ll likely want to keep the True Tone feature enabled, but some users may want to disable True Tone on their iPhone screen.

Obviously the iPhone must have a True Tone display to disable or enable the True Tone feature,. Currently that is only on the newest model devices, with iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus having the feature, whereas older iPhone models do not have True Tone displays.

How to Turn Off True Tone on iPhone Display

 

You can quickly turn off True Tone display on iPhone with device Settings:

1.Open the “Settings” app on the iPhone

2.Go to “Display & Brightness”

3.Locate “True Tone” and toggle the switch OFF to disable True Tone

With True Tone off, you may notice the color shift slightly as the device readjusts screen colors to what the default state would be without True Tone enabled.

If you have seen an iPhone screen prior to the latest models, that’s basically what a display with True Tone disabled will look like.

Many users will not notice the difference either way, as True Tone is fairly subtle.

How to Enable True Tone on iPhone Display

 

Want to enable True Tone if it was previously disabled? That’s simple:

1.Open the “Settings” app on the iPhone, then go to to “Display & Brightness” settings

2.Locate “True Tone” and flip the switch to the ON position to enable True Tone

Re-enabling True Tone will likely cause the displays colors to subtly shift, though the strength of the True Tone effect depends on ambient lighting conditions.

Why disable True Tone on iPhone?

The most likely reason to disable True Tone on a display is for color accuracy, perhaps for proofing a design, looking at a picture, watching a video or movie, or something similar. Of course it’s also possible you just don’t like the feature at all, in which case turning off True Tone will stop the display from adjusting lighting warmth as light conditions change around you.

Note that the iPad Pro also includes the True Tone display feature, if you have one of those devices you may also appreciate toggling True Tone on and off with iPad too.

Apple unveils new privacy tools ahead of EU law

Apple unveils new privacy tools ahead of EU law

Apple unveils new privacy tools ahead of EU law

An new report from Reuters states that Apple is introducing new tools that will allow consumers to control how their data are used and deactivate their Apple ID accounts, as tech companies strive to bring their services into line with a tough new EU data protection law.

Tech companies have long been scrutinized for how they protect their customers’ data and Facebook is currently embroiled in a huge scandal where millions of users’ data were improperly accessed by a political consultancy.

The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enters into force on May 25 and is the biggest shake-up of privacy rules since the birth of the internet. It introduces stiff fines of up to 4 percent of global turnover for companies found to be in breach.

Apple users worldwide will see a new data privacy information page when they update the software from Thursday on their iPhones explaining an icon which will appear when an Apple feature collects personal information.

The icon will not appear on features such as Apple’s Maps or Siri, for example, because they do not collect user data, whereas it will appear on the App Store or iTunes.

From May the device-maker will introduce new privacy management tools on the Apple ID website allowing users to get a copy of all their data held by Apple, request a correction, deactivate or delete their account.

Facebook has also announced some privacy changes ahead of the entry into force of the EU law which is seen as raising standards worldwide as companies introduce changes globally.

Apple has distanced itself from the likes of Google and Facebook who collect user data to serve them targeted advertising, saying its customers are not the product.

Apple’s changes are designed to give users the right to data portability, a new right introduced by GDPR, by allowing them to get a copy of their data which can be transferred to another service.

How to Update Adobe Flash in Chrome Browser

How to Update Adobe Flash in Chrome Browser

How to Update Adobe Flash in Chrome Browser

The Chrome web browser is perhaps best suited for running Adobe Flash because Chrome sandboxes the Flash player plugin, making it a bit more secure.

While Google Chrome should automatically update the Adobe Flash plugin itself when the browser app is relaunched, sometimes Adobe Flash Player may become out of date anyway and require the user to manually update the Flash plugin.

This tutorial will walk through how to manually update Adobe Flash Player within the Google Chrome browser.

How do I know when to update Adobe Flash Player plugin within Google Chrome?

 

Typically just periodically quitting and relaunching Google Chrome will update the Adobe Flash Player plugin on it’s own and without any user acknowledgment. However this doesn’t always happen.

Sometimes you may see a yellow banner at the top of the screen saying “Adobe Flash Player was blocked because it is out of date.” or “$1 was blocked because it is out of date.” to indicate the plugin must be updated.

A similar message will appear in Safari if Flash is out of date too. But, we’re focusing on Chrome here so let’s figure out how to resolve that blocked out of date plugin message in all Chrome browsers.

How to Update Adobe Flash Player Plugin in Google Chrome

 

This updates the Adobe Flash Player plugin in the Chrome web browser, this is demonstrated in Mac OS but it works the same in Windows too.

1.In the URL bar of Google Chrome, type the following address: chrome://components/ and hit return

2.Locate “Adobe Flash Player” in the list of Chrome components

3.Click on “Check for update” under ‘Adobe Flash Player’ and you will see various Status updates indicating the component update status

•“Status – Component updated’ – this means the Flash plugin was successfully updated to the latest version (version number shown corresponding)

•“Status – No update” – there is no available update for the flash plugin

•“Status – Component not updated” – the update failed for some reason or another, or there was no update available and thus the component was not updated

Quit and relaunch Google Chrome browser for the new Adobe Flash Player plugin to load

It’s important to keep Flash Player up to date if you’re going to use the Flash plug-in or have it installed, whether it’s in Chrome or in another web browser.

Personally, I only use the Adobe Flash plugin within the Chrome sandbox environment, and I do not install Flash (or any other plugins) into Safari.

This allows a user to uninstall Flash from the Mac in general but still retain Flash playing capabilities within the Google Chrome web browser sandboxed environment. In practice, this means when I want or need to use Flash Player for whatever reason, I use Chrome for those Flash websites.

Of course you can also disable Flash in Chrome specifically too, but if you use click-to-play and keep Flash up to date, and keep Chrome up to date, it’s not really necessary to turn the plugin off completely within Chrome.

Apple Watch Series 4 to Feature Redesign

Apple Watch Series 4 to Feature Redesign

Apple Watch Series 4 to Feature Redesign

Apple Watch Series 4 to Feature Redesign

Apple Watch Series 4 models set to be released this fall will feature a new design and a display that’s 15 percent larger, according to predictions shared by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in a new note that was sent out to investors this morning.

Apple Watch Series 4 to Feature Redesign

In addition to a new design with larger displays, the new fourth-generation Apple Watch models will feature a longer battery life enabled through more battery capacity and improved health monitoring capabilities. The display size of the watch could increase due to smaller bezels, and it’s not quite clear what impact a larger display would have on physical device size.

The Apple Watch’s design has remained unchanged since the first-generation Apple Watch was introduced in 2015, so a redesign three years later in 2018 would make sense.

Apple Watch Series 4 to Feature Redesign

Kuo also does not go into detail about what new health monitoring capabilities the fourth-generation Apple Watch might offer. Rumors have suggested Apple is exploring a sensor that would allow for continuous electrocardiograph monitoring to better detect serious heart conditions.

Apple is also pursuing a method for non-invasively monitoring blood glucose levels, but that technology seems to be a bit away and may not make it into a 2018 Apple Watch update.

Apple Watch Series 4 to Feature Redesign

Ming-Chi Kuo often shares accurate predictions about Apple’s plans, so it’s likely we can expect to see some kind of Apple Watch redesign this year. We’ll be hearing more about Apple’s plans as the watch’s likely September release date gets closer.

How to Fix “Verification Required” for Apps Downloads on iPhone and iPad

How to Fix “Verification Required” for Apps Downloads on iPhone and iPad

How to Fix “Verification Required” for Apps Downloads on iPhone and iPad

How to Fix “Verification Required” for Apps Downloads on iPhone and iPad

You may discover a “Verification Required” error message when attempting to install or update free apps from the iOS App Store on an iPhone or iPad, thereby preventing the user from downloading apps or updating any apps.

The complete message is either “Verification Required – Before you can make purchases, you must tap Continue to verify your payment info.” or “Verification Required. Tap Continue and sign in to view billing information.” if you see this message on an iPhone or iPad when trying to download, install, or update free apps you might be annoyed and want to stop the error and fix it.It might also be slightly worded different depending on the iOS release.

This tutorial will show you how to stop the “Verification Required” message on iOS, either when downloading free apps or app updates on an iPhone or iPad.

Why do I see a “Verification Required” message in the App Store for iOS?

It turns out the “Verification Required” message on iOS is a result of the payment method used on the Apple ID associated with the device.Accordingly, you will see that Verification Required billing message if the payment method failed, if there’s an unpaid balance on the account, or if the device has never purchased or downloaded anything or any free app before, or if the payment method has not been updated as needed. Thus, to stop the Verification Required message, in iOS, you will need to change the payment method, either to a valid payment method, or to ‘none’ which allows no payment details to be associated with an Apple ID and App Store. Below we will detail the exact steps to accomplish this task.

Before beginning: note that if you simply add a valid credit card to an Apple ID, the “Verification Required” message will not appear at all, and you can avoid verification for updates and installs as long as you disable require password for free downloads on the iPhone or iPad App Store settings.

How to Fix “Verification Required” When Installing Free Apps on iPhone and iPad

If you don’t want to add or verify a credit card with the Apple ID, or if the payment method expired, or you don’t want to use one at all, then you must change a setting on your Apple ID to stop the “Verification Required” message. Here’s how to do that:

1.Open the “Settings” app on the iPhone or iPad

2.Choose “iTunes & App Store” settings, then tap on the “Apple ID: your@email.com” button at the top of the settings

3.Tap on “View Apple ID” and sign in to the Apple ID as usual

4.In the Account Settings section, tap on “Payment Information”

5.Under ‘Payment Method’, choose “None” – or, alternatively, update the payment method *

6.Tap on “Done” when finished adjusting your settings

7.Exit Settings, and return to the App Store of iOS where you are now able to freely download, install, and update apps without seeing any “Verification Required” message

This should completely resolved the “Verification Required” message when performing App Store actions in iOS, whether updating apps, downloading new apps, or installing any apps, onto an iPhone or iPad.

* Whether or not you choose to update payment information associated with an Apple ID is entirely up to you. If you’re using the App Store without a credit card then you’d want to choose the “None” option, which allows updating and downloading free apps without ever needing any sort of verification of payment or even a payment method at all. Or if the payment method has expired, you can choose “None” too and bypass the ‘Verification Required’ message that way as well, and then later go back and update the payment details if need be. Keep in mind if you havre an unpaid balance on the Apple ID for a purchase, subscription, etc, you must pay that balance before you can choose the “None” option or before you can stop the Verification Required billing message.

If you also don’t want to authenticate with an Apple ID password upon each instance of downloading and installing iOS apps on the iPhone or iPad, you can disable password requirements for free downloads from the App Store on iOS and for Mac users there are similar settings to enable free downloads without passwords for Mac App Store too.
