You remember slowfies, right? Apple seems super keen to make sure we all know about slowfies and it's shared two new YouTube videos to drive the point home. Whether we want it to, or not.

It can make slo-motion videos from iPhone's front camera, in case you were wondering. It's slo-motion. And a selfie. It's a slowfie. Geddit?

  • Instagram Removes IGTV Button From Home Screen Following Lack of User Engagement 20/01/2020 at 11:48h
    Instagram is dropping the IGTV button from the top-right corner of the app's home screen because not enough people are interacting with it. First launched in June 2018, IGTV is Instagram's long-form video streaming service that's designed to compete with youtube. IGTV focuses on full-screen vertical video, with the ability to interact with other users while watching videos. The Facebook-owned company told TechCrunch that it was removing the button because not enough users were tapping it, and that people were discovering IGTV content in other ways. "As we've continued to work on making it easier for people to create and discover IGTV content, we've learned that most people are finding IGTV content through previews in Feed, the IGTV channel in Explore, creators' profiles and the standalone app. Very few are clicking into the IGTV icon in the top right corner of the home screen in the Instagram app" a Facebook company spokesperson tells TechCrunch. "We always aim to keep Instagram as simple as possible, so we're removing this icon based on these learnings and feedback from our community."The IGTV icon previously appeared alongside the DM icon IGTV hasn't completely gone away in Instagram. Users wanting to access IGTV content within the app can still do so by tapping the IGTV tab inside Instagram Explore (the same screen as the search function). People can also post IGTV videos right from the main Instagram feed post video uploader. According to TechCrunch, no more than 7 million of Instagram's 1 billion-plus users have downloaded the standalone IGTV app in the 18 months since it launched, so it makes sense that Instagram is folding the service deeper into its app. But with the massive success of rival platforms like TikTok, it's hard to predict where IGTV turns next in order to increase adoption rates.Tag: InstagramThis article, "Instagram Removes IGTV Button From Home Screen Following Lack of User Engagement" first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums
  • Latest Fortnite Update for iOS Brings 120fps Mode to 2018 iPad Pro 20/01/2020 at 10:42h
    Epic Games' latest update to the iOS version of popular battle royale title Fortnite that enables iPad Pro owners to run the game at 120 frames per second. ‌iPad Pro‌ owners wanting to make the most of the Pro Motion display's high refresh rate for a smoother performance can find the 120fps mode in the Fortnite settings screen. Enabling the mode does come at the expense of visual quality and automatically drops the resolution and fixes the visual settings at "medium," which falls in line with the game's other limits of "high" at 60fps and "epic" at 30fps. Despite that limitation, an ‌iPad Pro‌ running Fortnite can now beat the performance of current-generation consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One, which are restricted to 60fps. Also in latest v11.40.1 update, thumbstick buttons are now supported on iOS 13 and above. Fortnite on iOS has become a popular mobile alternative to the PC and console game, offering users the chance to play the well-known "Battle Royale" mode while on the go. Fortnite initially launched as a beta on iOS in March 2018 and then expanded wide in April the same year. The smartphone apps are focused entirely on Fortnite's PvP Battle Royale mode, but the console and desktop versions of the game also include a PvE mode called Save the World. Fortnite is a free-to-play game available to download on the App Store.

  • This has been quite a controversial week for Apple, but the show must go on 19/01/2020 at 18:00h
    Let's touch on the topic of Apple and the FBI and the ridiculous 'Cult of Apple' claims. Hello fellow iMorians, and welcome back to another installment of "From the Editor's Desk" from yours truly! There has been a lot going on this week between the FBI and Apple, and our own Stephen Warwick has wrote a great comparison piece that talks about the two very similar cases that have so far occurred in San Bernardino, California and Pensacola, Florida. If you haven't checked it out yet, make sure to give it a look. I know it's a very controversial topic, but I'm going to throw my hat into the ring: what the FBI is requesting of Apple may seem innocent enough on the surface, but it will do nothing but cause a huge slippery slope. If Apple were to create a "backdoor" to allow government officials access to a locked and encrypted iPhone, it would open up a whole can of worms if this "master key" ever fell into the wrong hands. And let's face it — the government is not necessarily one f...

  • Here's how to quickly and efficiently bulk delete contacts on your iPhone 19/01/2020 at 16:00h
    It's 2020 and Apple still hasn't made it easy to remove multiple contacts from iPhone at the same time. But these workarounds should help. Perhaps it's outdated information for a former work colleague or an old flame. Maybe it's the phone number and email for a PR person that you added years ago. Regardless, the Contacts app on your iPhone is likely filled with information on people that's out of date or is no longer necessary to keep. In these cases, the ideal solution would be to delete these rogue listings in bulk. Unfortunately, Apple doesn't make it possible to remove multiple contacts at once in an efficient manner. However, there are two solutions worth considering when it comes to deleting multiple contacts. One of these requires using iCloud on your Mac or PC; the other is a third-party app. Using iCloud Assuming you're using iCloud, your contacts are stored and backed up in the cloud for use across all your Apple devices, including iOS and macOS machines.

  • Tim Cook Shares Behind-the-Scenes Look at Apple TV+ Show 'Little America' 19/01/2020 at 13:06h
    Apple CEO Tim Cook has taken to Twitter this weekend to share a behind-the-scenes look at the making of new Apple TV+ show "Little America." The entire first season of the immigrant anthology series debuted on ‌Apple TV‌+ on Friday. The show was created by Kumail Nanjiani, Emily V. Gordon, and Lee Eisenberg. Each episode in the ‌Apple TV‌+ series is based on a real-life tale pulled from Epic Magazine, and in the video "Inside Little America," Nanjiani and Gordon discuss what motivated them to bring the stories to the TV screen. When you add up every ambitious dreamer, every daring creator, every impatient striver searching for a better life, you get the story of America. Apple is committed to sharing stories like those in our new series, Little America — stories that matter. pic.twitter.com/9x2bTEad2v— ‌Tim Cook‌ (@tim_cook) January 18, 2020 "Making a show about immigrants in this day and age, it's going to be seen as political, but we really wanted these to be human stories," says Nanjiani. "These are not stories with any kind of agenda." "A big thing that connects all the episodes is people trying to find a sense of home. Your geographical home is gone, and so you have to find home here. I think that's why people will connect with this. Even if they may not look like these people, they'll feel like these people."The series has received largely positive reviews from critics, who have called it the best ‌‌Apple TV‌‌+ show yet. "Little America" has already been renewed for season 2.

  • On Apple and the FBI regarding privacy, from San Bernardino to Pensacola 18/01/2020 at 16:30h
    We compare two of the most high-profile Apple news stories in recent memory. Just before 11:00 am on December 2, 2015, Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, opened fire on a department holiday event for the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California. The couple, armed with .223-caliber assault rifles and semi-automatic handguns, took the lives of fourteen people, wounding a further 24. Only because of poor construction did an explosive device fail to detonate at the scene, preventing further loss of life. The perpetrators fled and were tracked to a residential neighborhood later that afternoon. Hundreds of shots were fired in a gun battle involving at least 20 police officers, it ended in the death of both Farook and Malik. One officer was injured in the shootout. Almost exactly four years to the day, on the morning of December 6, 2019, a Saudi Arabian Air Force officer, Mohammed Alshamrani, opened fire ...
