How to screenshot iPhone X

How do you take screen shots with iPhone X if it doesn't have a Home button? As easily as ever!

Screenshots from your iPhone are great for sharing moments from your favorite videos, high scores from your games, conversations on social networks like Twitter or Facebook, bugs you want to report, and almost anything and everything you see on your screen. Traditionally, they were done by clicking on both the Home and Power buttons. But with iPhone X, the Home button is no more. So, how exactly do you capture the screen now?

How to take a screenshot on iPhone X

  1. Open the app or screen you want to capture.
  2. Set up everything exactly the way you want it for the shot.
  3. Press and hold the Side button on the right side of iPhone X.
  4. Click the Volume Up button at the exact same time. (This replaces the Home button step from previous iPhones.)
  5. The screen will flash white and you'll hear the camera shutter sound (if your sound is enabled).

Once you've taken the screenshot, you can use all of iOS 11's fancy new markup features to annotate it instantly or share it immediately.

iPhone X and iPhone 8 Can Be Charged to 50% in Just 30 Minutes

Apple only highlighted the inclusion of Qi wireless charging on the iPhone 8 and iPhone X at its launch event yesterday. However, an unarguably more useful feature on these handsets is the inclusion of fast charging. Apple had quietly shown a slide during the launch presentation mentioning support for fast charging on the iPhone X and iPhone 8. Continue reading

Apple’s iTunes update removes the desktop iOS app store

Posted on by Richard Lawler.
Categories: Uncategorized.

While Apple expanded its iPhone lineup today, a software update delivered for iTunes on Windows and Mac PCs is slimming things down a bit. Once users install version 12.7 they will no longer have access to the App Store from the desktop. As described on Apple's support page, a focus toward "music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks" means that you'll usually need to use your iOS devices to manage the apps installed on them. What it adds in this update is the ability to sync with devices running iOS 11 and social music sharing for Apple Music subscribers.

Apple Watch Series 3 Hands On: Apple throws down the small watch gauntlet

Posted on by Serenity Caldwell.
Categories: Uncategorized.

The 38mm Apple Watch Series 3 is now the smallest LTE smartwatch in the world — and that's a big deal.

On looks alone, the only thing differentiating this year's Apple Watch upgrade from its predecessors is a tiny red dot on the Digital Crown. Why red? Why add it to the Crown? While I got no official answer from the folks at Apple Park, I love the look. It further highlights Apple's bestselling smartwatch on the wrist as not only a fashion choice, but an outright statement. We are the smartwatch industry. We are here. And we are crushing the competition. (And, somehow, making a red dot work with all our bands, case colors, and outfits.)

Forget Fitbit, Misfit, Android Wear, Samsung. It's been three years since the Apple Watch's release, and no one has built a watch that does a fraction of what Apple's does in a 38mm form factor.

LTExcellence

This year, the company is stepping up its game and adding LTE. Not by halving the battery life (which reportedly is staying the same), nor bulging the watch up or out (the sapphire crystal backing protrudes just 0.2mm more). By being Apple: working silicon to the bone. Making the Watch's OLED display the LTE and Wi-Fi antenna. And miniaturizing an already tiny SIM card. Oh, and the S2 chip makes my otherwise competent Series 2 feel like it's running through molasses.

If I sound bullish on this iteration of Apple's smartwatch after only a short time with it, that's because I am. I came into this event with high expectations for the company and a low tolerance for compromise. I didn't want to see an LTE watch that only made phone calls, or destroyed battery life, or required the 42mm watch to function. If Apple was going to do this, they needed to do it right.

And, quite frankly, they have. They're innovating in this space in the areas that matter, like health monitoring and smart connectivity. Those who expected the LTE version of this watch to be crippled in some way — myself included — were wrong: The Series 3 offers full connectivity for Maps, Messages, phone calls, third-party apps, Music (coming in October), and Siri.

I've never used Siri the way I did with the Series 3 earlier on Tuesday. The pause is gone. You ask a query, and Siri responds immediately. No lag, no spinning, no "I'll tap you when I'm ready." The assistant, even without all the features it had on the iPhone, was always the best way to interact on the Apple Watch — when it worked. Now it does, and it works reliably. I threw a half-dozen queries, app requests, and dictations toward Siri in the hands on area and it answered flawlessly. It might be the best Siri experience I've ever had. This alone is a game-changer for how I use Apple Watch, and I suspect I'm not alone.

Maps is equally compelling: wander or run about your city and don't worry about bringing your pocket computer for emergencies. As is Messaging and phone calls: the features allow you to be connected when you need to, but disconnected (with the tap of a button) when you don't.

The Series 3 may not go far enough for some people in this arena. It still requires an iPhone to pair, which means those dreaming of an Apple Watch on Android or a phone-less world have to keep on dreaming. And you'll undoubtably have to pay an additional fee for data use, which won't be a thrill for those on a budget. Still, it's one of the most impressive feats I've seen from the folks at Apple, and I look forward to testing it more thoroughly upon its release.

The form factor

A word on Apple's form factor here, because it's something I've been stewing on this week. When the Apple Watch was first released in 2015, I compared the 38mm and 42mm cases to a variety of Android manufacturers, lamenting at the time that only Apple made a watch that didn't look like a black hole on my wrist.

Yes, big watches were (and are) in style these days, but the style requires a loose, almost bangle-like fit around your wrist to look correct. With smartwatches and heart monitors, this sort of fit is impossible: wear it loose, and you get no heart rate measurements; wear it tight, and it looks like you have a sun dial strapped to your wrist.

I know there are complaints about the rectangular form factor, and I feel it. There's a beauty to oval watches, and I hope Apple can do something with the style in the future. But the company went that way in the first place in order to have watches that fit all kinds of people — not just those with 40mm+ wrists.

Since I wrote that piece in 2015, there is not a single manufacturer who has managed to make a working watch with the same features under 40mm. I highlight this to point out just how incredible it is that Apple is not only shipping an advanced smartwatch at 38mm — it now packs a full-featured LTE antenna inside it with that form factor, too. Small, stylish watches are hard. Small stylish watches with fitness tracking and a full mobile OS are harder. Small stylish watches with fitness tracking, a full mobile OS, and LTE? Those are impossible, according to the rest of the industry. And Apple just proved them wrong.

Just saying: There's a reason the company is now the best-selling watchmaker on the planet, and it's not because they're making square watches. They're making small ones.

Healthy lifestyles

The other side of the Series 3 is centered around software-side improvements, largely to the Heart Rate app. These features will be coming to all Series models with a watchOS 4 update, so it's less of an exclusive feature than an early sneak peek, but still a welcome one.

The Heart Rate app will track your resting heart rate over time, as it has in the past, but now it will track and display your average workout heart rate, recovery time, and more. Apple has also built in an alert that warns users if their heart rate goes over a certain BPM when the watch believes the user is at rest — 120 by default, but supposedly user customizable. The interface on the watch is easily readable, with a Health app interface that allows even easier legibility. I appreciate also that it divides your heart rate averages by workout types — after all, not all workouts are made equal.

There's also a lot to be said about Apple's continuing commitment to health discovery, the incredible video the company displayed during the keynote on its Apple Watch users, and the upcoming Apple Heart Study with Stanford this fall, but I'll save it for a piece outside of this hands on.

The rest

There are a few other features worth mentioning on the Series 3: I didn't get a chance to test the speaker, but I was always happy with the Series 2 for phone calls. (On a related note, Apple's phone call demo on stage was one of the better ways to explain why you'd want to take a call on your watch that I've ever seen.)

The watch itself felt identical on my wrist to the Series 2, with the exception of the Nylon Sport Loop band: It's nylon, but feels almost like terrycloth. It also provides a super-tight fit on the wrist without cutting off circulation or making your skin uncomfortable — runners like my dad are going to love this band.

Really, my hands on experience with the Series 3 comes down to this: I was skeptical and quite frankly concerned about Apple pushing LTE to the watch before it was ready. After today, my fears aren't completely assuaged — I'll wait for our battery life tests when I review it — but I have faith in the company's direction here. They're continuing to set benchmarks in the smartwatch industry, especially for the smaller-wristed, and the Series 3 looks to be the next big step.

MrMobile’s iPhone X Impressions

You're reading this on iMore, so it's a fair bet you've heard the old saying that Apple does things better, instead of doing them first. Nowhere is that more obvious than in the iPhone X announced today, which is easily the most exciting iPhone in years. That's thanks to a bunch of features that, to my Android-addled eyes, aren't really "new." But fret not: I'm not here to bash Apple, but to celebrate it. Because while I may be familiar with many of the features the company announced today, I'm also frustrated with them. Wireless charging that never seems to catch on; augmented reality that has yet to find purchase; cellular smartwatches the size of drink coasters – these are just a handful of the problems Apple's trying to tackle with the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and Apple Watch Series 3, and from what I've seen today, the company stands a good chance of making things better for all smartphone users.

I'm MrMobile and even though I wasn't in Cupertino for the big iPhone X release today, I was glued to my MacBook the whole time – and I have some iPhone X First Impressions to share! Check out the real-deal iPhone X hands-on from Rene and Serenity right here on iMore and then circle back for my thoughts on the most impressive iPhone ever!

Is the iPhone X Worth the Cost and Wait?

Posted on by Evan Selleck.
Categories: Uncategorized.
The iPhone 8 has felt like a long time coming since September of last year. After Apple officially announced the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, it was like an immediate turnaround on iPhone rumors, with the lion’s share of attention being placed on what was coming next. One year full out from back then, leading to today, the rumor mill has been working overtime trying to piece together what Apple would launch on the tenth anniversary of the iPhone brand.

iPhone X and iPhone 8 in Canada: Everything you need to know!

Posted on by Daniel Bader.
Categories: Uncategorized.

If you're in Canada, here's what you need to know about the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.

OK so you know about the phones and you are salivating at the features. You're despondent about the late October pre-order date. These things are obvious. But if you're in Canada, here are some things you may want to reference when deciding whether to buy the latest iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, or upgrade to the expensive af iPhone X.

How much do they cost?

The iPhone 8s are a bit more expensive than the equivalent iPhone 7s which, given the unstable value of the Canadian dollar, makes sense that Apple would continue to hedge. The default storage options are twice as large, too, which could account for the increase (though there is no such bloat in U.S. prices, so...)

iPhone 8:

  • 64GB: $929
  • 256GB: $1139

iPhone 8 Plus:

  • 64GB: $1059
  • 256GB: $1269

iPhone X:

  • 64GB: $1319
  • 256GB: $1529

These are not cheap phones, the iPhone X especially. Even compared to the base U.S. prices, there is an affordance for continued weakness in the Canadian Dollar built in.

What colors are available?

Apple has simplified its color options this year, and that's probably a good thing. So long, Rose Gold.

iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Space Grey

iPhone X

  • Space Grey
  • Silver

Which carriers will offer the new iPhones?

Pretty much all of them:

  • Rogers
  • Bell
  • Telus
  • Videotron
  • Virgin Mobile
  • Fido
  • Koodo
  • MTS
  • SaskTel

There's a big omission there, and one that we don't know yet: Will Freedom Mobile offer the iPhone this year?

Does that mean the new iPhones will work with Freedom Mobile?

Yes! They all have Band 66 support inside, which is excellent news for Freedom Mobile customers. Even if the Shaw-owned carrier doesn't officially offer the phone for sale, it shouldn't be too hard to buy an unlocked model and put a Freedom SIM inside to receive LTE access.

Are older iPhones getting a price cut?

Yes, they are! The iPhone 7 now starts at $739, and the iPhone 7 Plus starts at $899.

  • iPhone 7 Plus: $899 (32GB) / $1029 (128GB)
  • iPhone 7: $739 (32GB) / $869 (128GB)
  • iPhone 6s Plus: $739 (32GB) / $869 (128GB)
  • iPhone 6s: $599 (32GB) / $739 (128GB)
  • iPhone SE: $469 (32GB) / $599 (128GB)

When do they go up for sale?

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus go up for pre-order in Canada on Friday, September 15 and are available to buy in stores and online September 22.

The iPhone X is going up for pre-order in Canada on October 27 and will be available a few days later, on November 3.

How the Home ‘button’ works on iPhone X

The iPhone X doesn't have a home button, how does that work?

With the tenth anniversary of the iPhone, Apple has given us the iPhone X, which has done away with the iconic Home button that has been around since the first iteration of the iPhone.

You're probably thinking that you use your iPhone's Home button a lot and you would be right. However, Apple did reveal some indication of how life without a Home button will look.

Obviously, without a Home button the iPhone X won't be able to use Touch ID. Instead, the iPhone X will use facial recognition technology known as Face ID to unlock.

By using the front-facing camera, an infrared camera, a flood illuminator, and a dot projector, the iPhone X scans your facial features and creates a profile for Face ID to recognize. When you want to unlock your phone, you simply need to look into the front-facing camera for the iPhone X to recognize you and the phone will open.

How to get to the home screen on iPhone X

Probably one of the most common uses of the Home button is to return to the Home screen, but with the iPhone X there's a different way.

The iPhone X will be able to return to the Home screen at any time by swiping up from the bottom of the screen — much like you would swipe up on your current iPhone to access Control Center.

I know what you're thinking …

How to access Control Center on iPhone X

Surprise! Control Center isn't located at the bottom of your screen on the iPhone X.

To activate Control Center on the iPhone X, you'll need to swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen where your Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and battery life icons live.

How to use multitasking with the iPhone X

If you're running multiple apps at once on your iPhone X and need to switch between them, you'll need to swipe up from the bottom of the screen and hold for a split second in the middle of the screen. Then, all the apps that are currently open will display in multitasking mode like normal.

Alternatively, Apple showed us that you can also swipe side-to-side at the bottom of the screen to glide between any apps you have open at the time.

Did Apple discontinue the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7?

It appears Apple is no longer selling the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition.

If you visit Apple's online store and attempt to purchase an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you might notice a certain cherry-colored model missing.

That's right — it appears Apple no longer offers the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. We did a quick search of the site and — save for Apple's announcement about the crimson smartphone — it's no longer referenced on the site. Major cell phone carriers don't appear to be offering the device, either.

If you're itching to own a (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 at this point, you might be able to come across one on Amazon or eBay, but keep in mind a third-party purchase is not without risk! You're better off just purchasing a (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 case from Apple.

Still, if you'd prefer to live vicariously through someone who has gotten his hands on an iPhone 7 (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition, you can check out Rene Ritchie's unboxing and hands-on!

Looking to watch Apple's iPhone X event? Here's how!

You might have missed Apple's live broadcast of exciting announcements regarding the iPhone X, the Apple Watch Series 3, 4K Apple TV and so, so much more, but that doesn't mean you've missed the boat forever!

There are a couple of different ways that you can recap Apple's monumental event today, but your best option would be to watch here:

Apple September 2017 iPhone X Event

Five things we learned at the iPhone X event

Missed the Apple event? Never fear! Here are five awesome things we learned at the iPhone X event.

Apple Watch Series 3? Portrait mode selfies? iPHONE X?!

There's a lot that was revealed September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater in California, but here are five super interesting things that piqued our Apple-loving interest.

Portrait Lighting is a game-changer

When Portrait Mode was first introduced with the iPhone 7 Plus, mobile photographers and professional photographers alike were impressed with the feature's capabilities. Fast-forward to this year, and we get a glimpse at Portrait Lighting.

Essentially, Portrait Lighting will adjust lighting in real time to get better light for your portrait photos. You can even swipe to pick different lighting effects while composing the picture!

The benefit to this? More control of your photos and the ability to take breathtaking portraiture that could rival even the most pricey DSLRs.

Cellular capabilities, meet Apple Watch

If you're wondering what that ringing sound may be, no, it's not your iPhone and no, it's not your iPad and no, it's not your MacBook and no, it's not your banana phone, so what could it possibly be?

Could it be your brand new Apple Watch Series 3 that now has cellular capabilities?

Could it be that the cellular feature on the new Apple Watch uses what's called an eSIM card—a card that's one-hundredth the size of an original SIM—that works great to allow data transfer over the air, and that Apple specifically mentioned that you will be able to do the following with the new model?

  • Make and receive calls using the same number as your iPhone
  • Send and receive text messages without your iPhone
  • Use the Maps app for directions without your iPhone
  • Find my Friends switches to your Apple Watch when you don't have your phone
  • Chat apps like WeChat and Snapchat work without your iPhone
  • Stream Apple Music on your wrist without your iPhone
  • Siri regains its features

Wild, wild wireless charging

Welcome to the wild world of wireless charging, where we're able to wirelessly ooh and ahh in wonderment at Apple's new AirPower wireless charging mat!

AirPower is a wireless charging mat that uses the Qi charging standard. It's wide enough to fit multiple devices, but still small enough to go with you on the road. You'll be able to simply rest your supported device right on top of it for wireless charging without needing a cable. Apple noted that, when using the AirPower, your device will display a specific charging interface (similar to the way the Apple Watch features a charging interface and NightStand mode when charging on its side). (Lory Gil)

Because the new iPhones (iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X) will be designed with glass backs, there's new potential for wireless charging, which will essentially render your lightning port next to useless if you're already on that wireless headphone kick.

Goodbye, Home button, and hello Face ID

The removal of the Home button this year was like the removal of the headphone jack last year: people are going to be mad at it for a while, but ultimately they'll adapt.

That being said, it's time to say goodbye to the Home button with the introduction of the iPhone X and Face ID, meaning you'll no longer have to worry about pesky fingerprints to access your precious iPhone ever again: all you'll need is your face!

Face ID is Apple's new biometric unlocking mechanism that it's introducing with the iPhone X. Using the front-facing cameras, an infrared camera, flood illuminator, and a dot projector, the iPhone scans your face with techniques like depth mapping in order to tell if it's really you. Apple touts the security of Face ID, saying the chances of someone being able to open your iPhone X with their face are 1 in 1,000,000 (versus 1 in 50,000 for Touch ID). Furthermore, the system can't be tricked by photographs or even perfectly-sculpted masks. Face ID also works with Apple Pay and third-party apps, just like Touch ID does. (Joseph Keller)

PORTRAIT MODE SELFIES

Honestly, this is the main thing I'm excited about regarding the iPhone X.

Why?

BECAUSE PORTRAIT SELFIES, THAT'S WHY. Do I really need to explain this?! Everyone's selfies are going to look 1,000x better.

Goodbye, Instagram boyfriend. Hello, selfie Portrait Mode! &#129331;&#127996;

Back when smartphones were just becoming commonplace in everyone’s world, they featured a built-in FM radio. Over the years though, things changed and the FM radio went missing from smartphones.
