Last week, Apple pushed out a brand new iOS 8 update dubbed iOS 8.1.2. iOS 8.1.2 is a tiny bug fix update but as many iPhone and iPad users know, small iOS updates can have a big impact on performance. With iOS 8.1.2 problems swirling post-release, we want to offer 10 important tips aimed at both current iOS 8.1.2 users and those thinking about making the jump.
In June, Apple showed off its new iOS 8 update to the public for the first time. In September, Apple confirmed the highly anticipated iOS 8 release date and in the middle of the month delivered iOS 8.0 to iPhone and iPad users around the world. As expected, the iOS 8.0 update delivered tons of tweaks and features to iOS users. And as expected, the iOS 8 update also delivered a number of issues.
iOS 8 problems, both big and small, emerged from the ashes of the initial iOS 8.0 release. Instead of sitting on its hands, Apple went to work and over the last few months, the company’s pushed out a wave of iOS 8 updates aimed at squashing these issues and improving the performance of its new operating system for iPhone and iPad users.
You may think you’re a pretty good iPhone photographer. Your Instagram game is on point, you have a killer Snapchat score and you always know exactly what filter to use. But are you on the same level with Boston’s best Instagrammers? If you’re not, you can get there.
I do pretty well with an iPhone myself, but when I’m working as a journalist, the images I shoot reach a larger audience than my personal Instagram posts do. That doesn’t mean I always turn to a DSLR. It’s important my photos are the best they can be no matter what camera I use. Here are some of the things I’ve learned to do.
An overwhelming number of iPhone customers are choosing to buy the cheapest storage options possible, and they’re quickly finding that 16GB simply isn’t enough room.
A new survey carried out by camera app IceCream shows for the first time some concrete evidence about the iPhone’s storage problem. The app asked UK mobile carrier Telefonica/O2 about iPhone storage space in the UK. What they found was pretty shocking: 91% of iPhones in the UK have 16GB or less of storage.
The data suggest that Apple’s storage pricing strategy — it charges customers a lot more if they want the biggest, most functional level of storage — has yet to persuade customers to get out of their low-storage ghetto. With the iPhone 6, for instance, you can buy models with 16GB, 64GB, or 128GB of storage. The 16GB level will be mostly useless on an iPhone 6, so you’re incentivized to pay extra for 64GB or 128GB.
