How your iPhone can help you through hurricane season

What apps and websites do you need to track hurricane season? How can your iPhone help? Here's what you need to know!

June 1 marks the official start to hurricane season. There's no better time than now to bone up on some of the best ways to keep current on what's out there and how to stay safe if a storm comes your way.

And just like with everything else, your iPhone now play an integral part with that.

I've lived on the Gulf Coast my entire life. I've been through storms. God willing, I'll never go through another. But either way, I'll be ready. Let's take a look at a few ways you can be, too.

Websites and apps

If you only use one website for tracking tropical activity, it needs to be the National Hurricane Center's site, found at www.nhc.noaa.gov. (They've got a mobile version, too, if you're into that sort of thing.)

I also recommend Weather Underground's site, too, and the blog written by Jeff Masters.

What about apps, though? I've used a few over the years. Mostly they're wrappers for the NHC website, and for the most part the apps themselves are pretty crap. And you don't really need them. They can, however, be good for notifications of new updates, which the NHC puts out every six hours. If you don't want to spend a few bucks, you could just hit up the NHC site, or follow their Twitter feed, or use RSS or e-mail. (The NHC has a lot of ways to stay informed.)

One of the best-rated apps for iPhone is Hurricane Pro, which costs $3.99.

And if you just don't want to bother committing all of these tips to memory, go for the America Red Cross' hurricane app.

If you want more than hurricane tracking, as important as that is, check out iMore's best weather apps as well.

Your iPhone

There's almost nothing worse than knowing a hurricane is headed your way. They're big. They're often slow. You could have days or even weeks of warning. That gives you plenty of time to prepare. And your iPhone makes it easier than ever.

A few tips I've picked up the hard way:

  1. Inventory your home and car. Use notes apps that sync to the cloud (that's the really important part) to keep track of everything you own, for insurance purposes. If it's not documented, it might as well have never existed.
  2. Take pictures. Lots of pictures. The outside of your home. The inside of your home. Pets. Kids. Anything of value. Insurance fraud, unfortunately, is a thing. You'll want to prove your car didn't already have that tree on it. Again, make sure your pictures are uploaded to a cloud service like iCloud Photo Library, Google Photos, or Dropbox.
  3. Charge early and often. When the power goes out, it goes out.
  4. That said, data could well be down after a strong storm. (Though operators will be quick to tell you they've been hardening against storms.) If that's the case enjoy the silence, and don't waste battery if you don't have to.

Speaking of charging ...

Batteries are our lifeblood. I mean, our phones' lifeblood. If you want any hope of communicating after a storm, or keeping up with folks during a storm, you'll need to stay charged. The good news is that even if you don't (or can't) use a full-blown generator, we've got options.

We've seen an explosion (figuratively, that is) of small and inexpensive external batteries. This very much changes the game for post-storm charging. You should have a few on hand. We're fans of this 20,000 mAh battery from Anker. USB-A and USB-C, so it'll charge pretty much everything. (And, yes, it's on that "good" list for USB-C.)

A good bit more expensive, and maybe a little crazy (in a good way) is the Anker PowerHouse — a 434Wh (that's somewhere in the neighborhood of 120,000 mAh) gianormous AC or solar-powered backup battery/inverter.

Unfortunately for most of us, it's still a little early for this future-tech solution.

Other random things worth buying

Batteries are obvious. So are lamps of some sort. And food that doesn't spoil.

I also recommend picking up a sun shower of some sort. These are large PVC bags that use the sun to heat the water within, and gravity to rain it down upon your body. I used them on boats growing up, but they're perfect for post-storm showers. You don't need electricity to heat the water, they're portable, and they're easy to store.

This one looks just fine — but you've basically got your pick on Amazon. If you're buying locally, any sporting goods store or boat store should have them in stock.

I'd also recommend picking up a battery-powered AM/FM Weather radio. Again, you need to conserve things like your phone for when you really need them. These ancient little radios run on batteries and will keep you up with important local info as well with NOAA weather radio. They're indispensable once the power goes out. (It's what us old people had before Twitter, and with less trolling.

Twitter: Everything you need to know!

Posted on by Mike Tanasychuk.

Everything you need to know about Twitter … in more than 140 characters.

"Tweeting" has almost become as ubiquitous a verb as "googling", but if you're not sure what Twitter even is, you may be at a loss for words (or characters). Here's everything you need to know about Twitter.

Sept. 6, 2017: You can now enable Twitter's "night mode" on its web client!

Heads up if you have sensitive eyes: Twitter's eye strain-reducing "night mode" theme, once only available on Twitter's iOS and Android apps, is now available for web. Even better, it's incredibly easy to enable. Here's how:

  1. Go to your Twitter timeline.
  2. Click on your own profile photo in the top right-hand corner.
  3. If the feature is available to you, you'll see "Night Mode" next to a small moon icon at the very bottom of the dropdown menu.
  4. Click it, and you're done! Your timeline should now be a dark blue and much gentler on the eyes in low light.

Whether you're making the change for your eye health or just because you dig how it looks, you'll now be able to more easily keep up with your social media at all hours. Nice!

What is Twitter?

It's a social media platform, like Facebook, that lets users share quips, photos, videos, GIFs, and more, all in 140 characters or less. It was founded and launched in 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams.

It comes in both web and app form and is available for iOS and Android. There are also many third-party apps that help you manage your Twitter feeds more easily, like Tweetbot.

How does Twitter work?

Twitter runs on "Tweets" — 140-character posts that Twitter users make and then broadcast to all of their followers. You follow other Twitter users by creating your own profile and then searching for them or clicking "Follow" on suggested users.

Twitter also supports the addition of photos, short videos, and (most recently) GIFs, so you can jazz up your tweets to make them more appealing. When you follow people, all of their tweets will show up on your feed in a long, scrolling column. This makes Twitter somewhat ephemeral and designed for quick interaction.

#Hashtag

You know the incredibly annoying trend where people say "hashtag" before something, out loud? You can thank Twitter for that! In order to group tweets and hopefully make your tweets for noticeable in the void that is the Twittersphere, you can add phrases or words to your tweets and precede them with the pound sign or "hashtag". This tags your tweet so that when people search Twitter for specific terms, your tweet pops up. #craycray #amirite?

Who's on Twitter?

Everybody!

Well, maybe not everybody, but there are roughly 328 million monthly active users, including celebrities, athletes, writers, artists, bands, and more. If you have a favorite actor or singer, chances are they have Twitter. In fact, celebrities will often tweet back to "regular" people. Kiss me, I'm Twitter famous.

I heard Twitter isn't long for this world. Is that true?

While it's true that Twitter has seen some rather slow growth in the last couple years and finished off 2016 $456 million in the hole, it's likely that the platform will be around in some incarnation or another for quite a while.

In fact, on the day of 2016 U.S. presidential election, 40 million election-related tweets were sent by 10 p.m., making Twitter the biggest source of breaking election news that day.

Twitter TV

It's a thing... kind of. Twitter TV is going to be a 24/7 streaming service that offers everything from TV shows to regular, everyday people streaming their lives (á la Facebook Live).

Community Review: RhinoShield PlayProof Custom Case for the iPhone 7 Plus

Posted on by swarlos.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Editor's Note: This is a full product review created by a member of the iMore community. If you'd like to participate in this program, please reach out to our Community Manager or read this forum thread for more information.

Let me just start by saying this: RhinoShield is freaking awesome!

It has an amazing selection of cases, and if you're the type of person who likes to have some personality or customization with your case selection, then look no further than RhinoShield's Custom PlayProof case collection!

The brand caters to everything ranging from cool abstract animal designs to quirky art and everything in between. Whatever style you're looking for, RhinoShield no doubt has something for everyone.

Pros

  • So many fun and cool designs to choose from
  • Reasonably priced at $29.99
  • Provides excellent protection
  • Very satisfying button clicks

The PlayProof is an amazingly well-built case that feels super sturdy yet also very light at the same time.

Cons

  • Maybe too many options: you'll go broke wanting to collect them all!
  • You won't be able to put your phone down it feels so good now

Just like the SolidSuit case that I reviewed, the PlayProof is an amazingly well-built case that feels incredibly sturdy, yet also very light at the same time. It's such a pleasure to hold in the hand and use day to day. With some cases, I just want to rip them off only hours after putting them on, but that's not the case (ha!) with the PlayProof.

The only downside with the PlayProof compared to the SolidSuit is the cutout for the mute switch is slightly smaller, so you are definitely going to need your nails to use it. Again, the buttons click with a very satisfying tactile feel.

Luckily this time I didn't have to test its sturdiness with a drop, but I'm confident it'll perform just like the SolidSuit.

The PlayProof is another stellar case from RhinoShield (I mean, I'm really impressed with these guys!) and with the custom options, you have a wide array of really cool cases to choose from to add to your collection.

Case Rating 9.5/10

Apple at odds with Indian regulators over anti-spam app

In a classic case of an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object, Apple's refusal to approve the Indian government's anti-spam iPhone app is causing uproar on both sides. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has been pushing unsuccessfully to get its "Do Not Disturb" software included in the App Store, and Apple refuses to budge on the matter, claiming it violates the company's privacy policy.

BBC brings interactive radio plays to Amazon Echo, Google Home

Posted on by Tory Foulk.
Categories: Uncategorized.

BBC is in the process of creating an interactive radio drama for Amazon's Alexa-enabled devices and the Google Home that allows users to guide the narrative with their voices.

The broadcasting company announced on its blog that it's crafting the radio play, called "The Inspection Chamber," in collaboration with audio tech agency Rosina Sound. BBC R&D cites authors like experimental modernist Franz Kafka and sci-fi comedy genius Douglas Adams as inspiration for the piece, and classifies it as a "comedy science fiction audio drama."

The play will follow a formula akin to other interactive fiction pieces and will work similarly to a choose-your-own-adventure story, but with one distinct difference: Instead of listening to a chunk of the story and then choosing one of two or three given options, users will actively play a part in the story and interact with other characters in the piece by using their voices. According to the company, this will allow users to feel more completely immersed in the tale because they won't have to repeatedly pull themselves out of the moment to consider their choices.

Once "The Inspection Chamber" pilot drops, it will be available on Amazon's Alexa-enabled devices and Google Home. However, thanks to what BBC is calling its "story engine," it will be possible to release to other devices as well — the company said it would like to expand its roster to Apple's HomePod and Microsoft's Cortana speaker eventually.

If you can't wait to find out what the audio play will sound like, you can hear a sample of it in a video shared on the aforementioned blog post.

Thoughts?

How excited are you for "The Inspection Chamber" and possible other interactive radio dramas? Do you think the interactive fiction genre will lend itself well to smart speakers like the Amazon Echo? Let us know in the comments!

Best MacBook Pro Cases

Posted on by Mike Tanasychuk.
Categories: Uncategorized.

What's the best case for MacBook Pro?

The MacBook Pro is a hell of a machine, with slick internals and two very recent updates (late 2016, mid-2017). If you've just picked up a new laptop, then you'll want to protect it or maybe even just dress it up a bit.

Here are the best cases for your MacBook Pro.

Note: Always remember to select the right size and model before you check out. Also remember that anny case for the 2016 MacBook Pro will fit the 2017 models too.

TopCase 2 in 1 ultra slim hard cover

This hard cover case from TopCase might be the most reviewed case on Amazon, and over 70% of reviews fall in the 4- or 5-star range. This is the perfect basic case for your MacBook Pro and it comes in 13-inch and 15-inch versions, so it's great for everybody.

This case is made from a hard plastic but features a softer rubberized coating, which provides excellent grip, especially when it's sitting on your lap. There are 18 color options to choose from, from matte black to vibrant "hot blue".

Pricing starts around $15.

See at Amazon

i-Blason dual layer cover

If you're looking for some rugged protection, then i-Blason's heavy duty dual layer cover is the way to go. It's made from hard plastic and features a softer, more flexible TPU bumper around the edges for shock absorption.

Everything's covered and protected properly, but you still have full, open access to all the ports and the battery check button. You have the option of black with blue, black with green, all black, or white. Pricing starts at $33 for the 13-inch version and around $33 for the 15-inch as well.

See at Amazon

YMIX hard plastic cover

If you're looking for a bit of protection but really just want to jazz up the boring metal exterior of your MacBook Pro, then check out YMIX's plastic covers, which feature a wide range of designs, from a photo of a cat with large sunglasses (my favorite) to a globe to Studio Ghibli's Totoro character (actually my favorite).

These two-piece cases have a hard plastic top and a rubberized bottom so that it doesn't slip off the desk while you're working. Not every design is available for all MacBook Pro models, so make sure you have the right device and not just the design you want.

Pricing starts around $18.

See at Amazon

KEC hard shell cover

If you're looking something with a nice design but aren't partial to cats with glasses or mandalas, then check out KEC's "out of this world" cases, which feature space scenes, as well as abstract, wavy paint designs. If you're a stargazer or just like a celestial scene, then these are the cases for you. They're so cool.

Each case is made of hard plastic and is finished with a rubber oil paint to prevent slippage. The bottom of each case is fully vented and has little rubberized feet to raise your MacBook slightly and give it a stable base to sit on.

There are 36 styles to choose from and they're $20 apiece.

See at Amazon

Mosiso plastic hard case

Mosiso's plastic hard case is probably the best-reviewed MacBook case on Amazon and it even comes with a keyboard cover so that you MacBook Pro is covered through and through. The keyboard cover matches whichever exterior color you choose.

Just like most MacBook cases, these are made from hard plastic and feature an anti-slip rubberized coating. Even though the Apple logo doesn't light up anymore, these translucent cases will still let you appreciate it, as well as the smooth build of your MacBook Pro.

There are 33 color options to choose from and pricing starts around $11. Be sure to choose the correct model before checking out or the case you choose might not fit your laptop.

See at Amazon

THEWOODWE walnut wood case

From Etsy, this stylish wooden case is super slim and definitely won't provide much protection, aside from keeping your MacBook Pro scratch-free. Though it seems like more of a skin (you peel and stick it once you place it correctly), this case is indeed made from real walnut and is laser cut to fit your MacBook perfectly.

Though these cases stick via adhesive, THEWOODWE promises they won't leave a residue, and reviews appear to corroborate that. You can get just a top cover or grab a bottom cover as well, which features little feet. If you're looking for an "old-meets-new" look for your MacBook Pro, then a wooden case is the perfect way to go.

Remember that this is more of a skin, so it won't provide any drop protection. Also note that these come from Lithuania, so expect a bit of a longer shipping period. Pricing starts at $35 for just the top cover. Top and bottom will run you about $55.

The Switch is easy to set up and get started with right away, but sometimes you need a little help with the details.

If you're just starting out with the Switch, Nintendo's hybrid gaming console, or if you've been playing Zelda for weeks, there may be a few things you didn't know you could do with it. We spent much of our play time figuring out how to do everything with the Switch, and here's the ultimate guide.

How to download iOS 11 public beta 9 to your iPhone or iPad

Posted on by Joseph Keller.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Itching to try out iOS 11? The public beta is now available. Here's how to download it!

iOS 11 is coming down the road with a number of new features — features that need real-world testing before the software officially launches. As such, Apple is letting interested users check out iOS 11 and provide feedback before it goes into wide release.

If you're one of those interested users, however, you will have to go through the public beta download and install process. While it's not complicated, it is different. So, we're going to walk you through it and give you a place to ask questions if you need extra help.

Apple occasionally offers updates to iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS as closed developer previews or public betas for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac (sadly, no public beta for the Apple Watch). While the betas contain new features, they also contain pre-release bugs that can prevent the normal use of your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, or Mac, and are not intended for everyday use on a primary device. That's why we strongly recommend staying away from developer previews unless you need them for software development, and using the public betas with caution. If you depend on your devices, wait for the final release.

How to make an archived backup of your iPhone or iPad

Before you begin, make sure you back up your iPhone or iPad. While the beta process is fairly straight forward, any time you make any significant change to your device you risk problems. And with your personal data, it's always — always! — better to be safe than sorry. Even if you back up every night, you'll want to make sure it's absolutely up-to-date.

  1. Plug iPhone or iPad into your Mac or Windows PC.
  2. Launch iTunes.
  3. Click on the iPhone or iPad icon in the menu bar when it appears.
  4. Make sure backup is set to This Computer. (And enable Encrypted backup — it's worth it!)
  5. Click on Back Up Now. (Click on Encrypt Backup and add a password — you want the security.)
  6. Back up Apps, if asked.


  7. Press Command, to open Preferences. (Or go to iTunes in the menu bar and click on Preferences.
  8. Click on the Devices tab.
  9. Option-click on your Backup and choose Archive.


Archiving will prevent your current backup from being overwritten by an iOS 11 backup in the future, should you want to revert for any reason.

How to register your account for the iOS 11 public beta

If you've already joined an Apple public beta in the past, you shouldn't need to register again for iOS 11; simply sign in with the same Apple ID. If you've never joined a public beta before, you'll start by signing up with your Apple ID.

  1. Go to beta.apple.com on the iPhone or iPad you want to enroll in the beta.
  2. Tap on Sign up to get started. (If you've already signed up for a previous public beta, tap on Sign in and skip to our "How to enroll your device" section below.)
  3. Enter you Apple ID email address and password.
  4. Tap Sign in.
  5. Tap Accept to agree to the terms and conditions.

Once you're signed up and signed in, it's time to start downloading.

How to enroll your iPhone or iPad in the iOS 11 public beta

Unlike regular iOS updates, where you just tap and start downloading, Apple is using configuration profiles to validate devices for the iOS 11 public beta. Here's how to install it.

Note: If you've been on a previous iOS public beta, you may need to remove the previous beta profile before installing the iOS 11 version. You can do so by going to Settings > General > Profile, selecting the iOS Beta Software Profile, and pressing Delete Profile.

  1. Go to beta.apple.com, if you're not there already.
  2. Tap the iOS tab, if it's not highlighted already.
  3. Tap on Download profile.
  4. Tap on Install in the upper right corner.
  5. Enter your Passcode.
  6. Tap on Install, this time to consent to the beta agreement. (Read it: There are risks to any beta.)
  7. Tap on Install at the bottom to confirm. (Yes, you need to be really sure.)
  8. Tap on Restart to reboot your device.

Once your iPhone or iPad has finished rebooting, it should start to download iOS 11 automatically. From this point on, the process is the same as any other iOS update.

How to install the iOS 11 public beta

To install the iOS 11 beta, you'll need to visit Software Update on your iPhone or iPad.

  1. Launch Settings from your Home screen, tap on General, then tap on Software Update.
  2. Once the update appears, tap on Download and Install.
  3. Enter your Passcode.

  4. Tap Agree to the Terms and Conditions.
  5. Tap Agree again to confirm.

Your iPhone or iPad will reboot to install iOS 11. There will be a couple progress bars going across the screen. Sit tight, and let everything finish.

How to get started with iOS 11 public beta

Once your iPhone or iPad reboots, it'll be running iOS 11. There's a brief bit of setup you'll need to go through, however, as the system will have changed enough that it'll need your login to complete the update.

  1. Tap Continue.
  2. Enter your Apple ID password. iCloud settings will update, so give it a minute.
  3. Tap Get Started.

Once that's done, you'll be on the Home screen and ready to rock iOS 11.

What's new in iOS 11?

So much! We've written a bunch about the new operating system, including a detailed FAQ and sections on its changes for iPads, Siri improvements, Apple Pay enhancements, and much more.

Update September 6, 2017: Apple has released iOS 11 public beta 9 for members of the Beta Software Program.

Logitech launches its first updated trackball mouse in nearly a decade

Do you prefer the trackball style mouse? Logitech finally updates its trackball design.

If you've become accustomed to trackball scrolling with your mouse, you'll be happy to learn that Logitech has just launched its first new design for a trackball mouse in almost a decade. It's called the MX ERGO and its design comes directly from Logitech fans that have figured out ways to make their own trackball mouse more comfortable.

What makes the MX ERGO stand out is its unique adjustable hinge that makes it possible for you to change the angle of your mouse position from 0 to 20 degrees. The mouse is also designed with ergonomics in mind. It is shaped to fit comfortably while your palm rests, but also gives you easy access to its scroll and click features.

The MX ERGO includes all the great features that Logitech's other mouse accessories have, like easy-switching (two channels), so you can switch between devices without having to re-pair anything. It comes with a unifying USB receiver, so you can pair up to six different Logitech peripherals to one computer, or you can connect it using Bluetooth.

It's wireless, using Bluetooth LE and a super-fast recharging system. According to Logitech, you could charge it from empty for just a single minute and it will last a full day of use.

We are so excited by this new trackball. It is back, better than ever and the idea for this trackball innovation was inspired by our users, who invented creative ways to achieve their desired level of comfort, sometimes adding additional wedges under their trackball for elevated angles," saidAnatoliy Polyanker, global portfolio and brand director at Logitech. "The MX ERGO is our first adjustable trackball that delivers on the need for elevated comfort in a beautiful design.

The MX ERGO costs $99.99 and will ship in mid-September. You can preorder it from Logitech today.

Apple fixes bug that incorrectly showed Russian address for developers

A bug in Apple's account management system that was incorrectly displaying developers as having an address in Russia, has been fixed.

Earlier today some developers noticed that Their address information had been erroneously replaced with a location in Russia. This, of course, immediately lead to some security concerns. Apple has since fixed the issue and released the following update to developers:

"Due to a bug in our account management application, your address information was temporarily displayed incorrectly in your account details on the Apple Developer website. The same incorrect address was displayed to all affected developers. The underlying code-level bug was quickly resolved and your address information now shows correctly. There was no security breach and at no time were the Apple Developer website, applications, or services compromised; nor were any of your Apple Developer membership details accessed by, shared with, or displayed to anyone.

What matters most in these situations is how quickly and effectively company deals with them, and how well they communicate with those affected. Looks like Apple did a good job here.
