There have been no shortage of iMessage horror stories from folks who migrated to something other than an iPhone. This comes on the heels of widespread compliants and a class-action lawsuit. Earlier this year, Apple promised that a software fix was in the works. Noticed by a user on Reddit (via The Verge), Apple has published an online tool to dergister iMessage.

When you transition to iOS 8, Apple offers you the option to migrate to iCloud Drive. This effectively replaces Documents and Data , which on previous iterations of iOS, allowed for syncing of files using iCloud. So if you used a text editor like the wonderful Byword, the resulting files or changes could sync between your Mac, iPhone and iPad. There are some developers who don’t yet support Cloud Drive. Prior to making the jump to Cloud Drive, you might want to take inventory of which apps are syncing through iCloud. It’s an incredibly powerful feature and remains so, despite […]

A collection of retailers including Rite-Aid and CVS have decided to disable NFC at their payment terminals. As a result, they have disabled Apple Pay functionality, along with Google Wallet (which also allows payments through NFC) as a beneficiary of the decision. They are part of Merchant Customer Exchange, who are working on their own payment system that uses CurrentC, an app currently available in the App Store. If you want to actually use it, you’ll need to wait for an invitation. That hasn’t prevented it from getting review torched by disenfranchised Apple enthusiasts, unhappy with the Apple Pay being […]

If I were to ask you what was the center of your Apple universe, you’d probably say it’s your iPhone, iPad or maybe even your Mac. While all of those play a key role in your happiness, your Apple ID is what makes everything work in unison. In most cases, your Apple ID is used for iCloud, iTunes Store purchases and often it’s also your primary email account. When you are logged into the various services, everything just works and it’s part of lure of using Apple products. It can also create a ‘set and forget’ mindset. When you get […]
One of the nifty features, is the ability to use custom widgets in iOS 8. We haven’t yet reached the point where you can place widgets on your home screen. Honestly, I don’t see that happening anytime soon on iOS. For now, widgets call the Today notification view, home. From anywhere on your iPhone or iPad, pulling down the notification tab will reveal your today information, followed by widgets you’ve added. By having these occupy your Today notification panel, it means quick access from the lock screen, which adds the utility of these apps. The functionality of the Today panel […]
