Pokémon Go Eggs and how to hatch them faster

Posted on by Rene Ritchie.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Which Pokémon can you hatch from 10 KM, 5 KM, and 2 KM Eggs? And what are the odds of hatching them? Here's the answer!

Pokémon Go isn't just about catching — hatching is a big part of the game as well. You get Pokémon Go eggs from spinning Poké Stops, incubate them, walk them for 2 KM, 5 KM, or 10 KM, and then hatch Pokémon from the common to the hyper-rare. Which Pokémon are in which Pokémon Eggs? And what's the best — read: fastest! — way to hatch them? Here's the updated list along with some tips and tricks — and maybe a cheat or two!

September 20, 2017: Super Incubators and special 2km eggs!

As a part of the Autumnal Equinox event starting on September 22, you'll be able to find Larvitar, Chansey, Mareep, and others in special 2km eggs. Perhaps more exciting is the addition of a new kind of incubator launching with the event. From Niantic:

You'll also be able to get special boxes from the in-game shop that feature items like Lucky Eggs, Lure Modules, and all-new Super Incubators which hatch Eggs 1.5 times quicker!

No doubt these Super Incubators are going to cost a little extra, but if you're trying to burn through what seems like an endless supply of 5km eggs so you can refill your inventory these might be the best way to go!

September 3, 2017: Latest changes to Pokémon Go Eggs examined and explained!

Following the Pokémon Go Anniversary Event in July, Pokémon Go once again made changes to the Pokémon Egg pools and rarity tiers. Here's what's been discovered.

From The Silph Road

We are now confident that changes occurred at the beginning of the Anniversary event on July 7th, with a minor change occurring at the event's end on July 23rd:

  • 9 species have recently stopped appearing in eggs
  • 13 species have been added (or restored) to eggs
  • the rarity and egg distances of several species have been changed

. Additionally, the final and rarest tier has now been confirmed, per our suspicions months ago. Consequently, we have changed our nomenclature and have replaced ULTRA-RARE with SUPER-RARE; thus we call the newly confirmed rarity tier HYPER-RARE.

I've updated the lists below to reflect these changes.

August 21, 2017: New Super Incubator hinted at for Pokémon Go

There could be a new, faster Incubator coming to Pokémon Go in the near future. It would hatch eggs faster, at least for the single (or similarly limited) amount of uses it gets.

From The Silph Road:

The leaks surrounding the new incubator have continued, confirming its name in the APK code: the SUPER INCUBATOR!

It is currently believed that this incubator will hatch eggs faster than a standard incubator.

Interestingly, the incubator itself received a makeover this update, and the SUPER INCUBATOR has a unique (purple!) look as well. It is currently unknown whether this item will be purchaseable or given as an award.

What kind of Pokémon Eggs are there in Pokémon Go?

Aside from the very different Lucky Eggs, available in the Shop, there are three kinds of Pokémon Eggs in Pokémon Go:

  • 2 KM Eggs with green spots.
  • 5 KM Eggs with yellow spots.
  • 10 KM Eggs with purple spots.

Each type of Pokémon Egg can hatch a different kind of Pokémon.

What are the rarity tiers for Pokémon Eggs in Pokémon Go?

After documenting 5,945 Pokémon Egg hatches since Halloween, The Silph Road shares:

Egg species is determined according to hidden rarity 'tiers' that are not the same as the egg distance tiers (i.e. 2 km, 5 km, 10 km).

In simple English, this means that not all 10 km egg species are rarer than 2 km egg species or 5 km egg species. A simple example of this is that Dratini is presently a very common hatch, despite being in 10 km eggs. It is currently easier to acquire a 10 km egg with a Dratini inside than a 2 km egg with a Machop inside.

The tiers seem to suggest that there's a 1:2:4:8 ratio for the tiers. That means you are 2x as likely to get a common egg as an uncommon one, 2x as likely to get an uncommon egg as a rare egg, and 2x as likely to get a rare egg as an ultra-rare egg.

What kind of Pokémon hatch from each type of Egg?

As of July, 2017, following the anniversary event, Pokémon Go has once again changed the type of Pokémon that hatch from Pokémon Eggs. The biggest changes include removing the Gen 1 starters, adding the Gen 2 starters, and moving many of the previously less-than-deseriable 10 KM hatches down to 5 KM.

Are there any Pokémon you CAN'T hatch from Eggs?

You can't hatch any evolved form Pokémon from Pokémon Eggs, only baby or base-level forms. So, you can't hatch a Pikachu, Dragonite or Tyranitar, but you can hatch the Pichu, Dratini, or Larvitar that evolve into them. You also can't hatch any Legendary or Mythical Pokémon, including the Legendary Birds, Legendary Dogs, Tower Duo, Celebi, Mew, or Mewtwo.

Other than that, you can't hatch Ditto, only catch it in disguise in the wild. And, although you could when the game first launched, you can no longer hatch regionals from eggs:

  • Farfetch'd
  • Kangaskhan
  • Mr. Mime
  • Taurus
  • Heracross
  • Corsola

Others have either been removed from eggs:

  • Bulbasaur
  • Squirtle
  • Chambader
  • Caterpie
  • Weedle
  • Pidgey
  • Rattata
  • Spearow
  • Zubat
  • Meowth
  • Mankey
  • Bellsprout
  • Doduo
  • Horsea
  • Magikarp
  • Sentrat
  • Hoothoot
  • Ledyba
  • Sunkern
  • Murkrow
  • Snubbull
  • Teddiursa
  • Tentacool
  • Psyduck
  • Sandshrew
  • Paras

And the regionals:

  • Farfetch'd
  • Kangaskhan
  • Mr. Mime
  • Taurus
  • Heracross
  • Corsola

But, I've hatched the Gen 1 starters from eggs, what gives?

Pokémon Go seems to currently be going back and forth between having the Gen 1 and Gen 2 starters in eggs. Right now, it's the Gen 2 starters turn again.

How do you get a Pokémon Egg?

Pokémon Eggs are different than the Lucky Eggs you get when you reach a significant new level or buy at the Shop. You can't buy Pokémon Eggs at all — You have to collect them at PokéStops. Spin the stop and there's a roughly 20% chance you'll get a Pokémon Egg along with the more common balls, potions, and revives.

That doesn't mean you'll get one egg every five stops, though. Random is random, which means you could get five eggs in a row or none at all. If you keep visiting and spinning PokéStops, though, you'll eventually get Pokémon Eggs.

New to Pokemon Go? Check out our ultimate guide first!

Where do you see Pokémon Eggs when you get them?

Pokémon Eggs are kind of hidden away but once you know where they are you can check on which ones you have, and how many, at any time.

  1. Tap the PokéBall button to bring up the menu.
  2. Tap the Pokémon button.
  3. Swipe from right to left to see your Pokémon Eggs.

You can have up to 9 Pokémon Eggs at any one time.

How can you tell which exact Pokémon is in a Egg?

You can't. Not until you hatch it. It's generally believed that when you spin a PokéStop and Pokémon Go determines you're getting an Egg, it first determines the Pokémon you're getting and then hides inside the appropriate type of Egg. For example, if it determines you're getting an Egg, it'll could then determine you're getting a Dratini, and so wrap it up inside a 10 KM Egg — and you can't see it or tell what it is until it comes out.

That means it doesn't matter where you are or what you do after you get an Egg. What's inside is already decided. It's also why, when Pokémon Go makes a change to Eggs for an event or any other reason, it won't affect Eggs you already have, only ones you get from that point on.

What about CP, Level, and stats (IV)?

The Level of a Pokémon in an Egg is the same as the Level of your Trainer when you acquire the Egg, up to a limit of Level 20. So, if you spin the PokéStop and get the Egg when you're Level 15, the Pokémon that eventually hatches from it will also be Level 15. If you're Level 20, 25, or 35, though, the Pokémon will be Level 20. That's as high as Eggs go. CP will match the Level.

For Stats (IV), Pokémon you hatch will be in the higher range:

  • Mystic: 80-100%: "Your [Pokémon] is a wonder! What a breathtaking Pokémon!" or 66-79% "Overall, your [Pokémon] has certainly caught my attention."
  • Valor: 80-100%: "Overall, your [Pokémon] simply amazes me! It can accomplish anything!" or 66-79%: "Overall, your [Pokémon] is a strong Pokémon. You should be proud!"
  • Instinct: 80-100%: "Overall, your [Pokémon looks like it can really battle with the best of them!" or 66-79%: "Overall, your [Pokémon] is really strong!"

You can also look at the maximum CP numbers in the list above. The closer your Pokémon is to the top, the closer it is to being "perfect" — highest stats in every category.

Okay, how do you hatch a Pokémon Egg?

You hatch your Pokémon Eggs by placing them in Incubators and then walking around until you reach the number of kilometers indicated by the Egg.

Everyone gets one free "Infinite" Incubator that lets you incubate a single Pokémon Go at a time. Pokémon Go will also give you free three-use Incubators when you reach level 6, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30, and four free when you reach level 40. To use them:

  1. Go to your Pokémon Egg screen.
  2. Tap on the Pokémon Egg you want to Incubate.
  3. Tap on Start Incubation.
  4. Tap on the Incubator you want to use.

You can also buy additional three-use Incubators from the Shop. They cost 150 Poké Coins and break after you've used them three times, but let you incubate as many Eggs as you have, all at the same time.

  1. Tap the Incubator button at the bottom right.
  2. Tap on the Shopping Bag button at the bottom right.
  3. Tap on the Incubator button.
  4. Tap on the Exchange For (150 coins) button.

You can also buy them from the Store screen if you're not already on the Egg screen. And you can buy as many as you like simply by tapping the Exchange For button repeatedly. (As long as you have enough Poké Coins.)

  1. Tap the PokéBall button to bring up the menu.
  2. Tap the Shop button.
  3. Tap on the Incubator button.
  4. Tap on the Exchange For (150 coins) button.

Note: Pokémon Go's Holiday Event gave away one free 1-use Incubator a day for the first PokéStop you spun and had discount Incubators available for sale. No telling when or if that'll happen again, but it's something to look out for!

Once you have the Pokémon Egg in the Incubator, you need to walk to hatch it. How far you have to walk correlates to the distance of the Egg you have.

  • 2 kilometers for 2 KM Eggs (green).
  • 5 kilometers for 5 KM Eggs (yellow).
  • 10 kilometers for 10 KM Eggs (purple).

Does it matter what type of Incubator you use for each type of egg?

Any type of Incubator can be used to hatch any type of Pokémon Egg. That said, if you want the most from your Incubators:

  1. Put 2 KM eggs in your unlimited use Incubator first.
  2. Put 10 km eggs in your three-use Incubators first.

Look at it this way: If you have a 3-use Incubator and you use it for 2 km eggs, it'll disappear after 6 km. If you use it for 10 km eggs, you'll get 30 km out of it, or 5x the distance for your money.

Can you see how far you've traveled with a Pokémon Go Egg?

Yup! As you walk, the Pokémon Egg screen will update to show you the distance you've walked each Egg up to one decimal place. For example, if you walk 1.3 KM, you'll see 1.3 / 2 KM, 1.3 / 5 KM, or 1.3 / 10 KM.

If you tap on a Pokémon Egg, you can see the distance up to two decimal places.

The distance is updated every 4.2 minutes so, don't worry if you walk for a bit and don't see any immediate changes.

How fast can you walk to hatch a Pokémon Egg?

It's currently believed the optimal speed for hatching a Pokémon Go is 10.5 KM/H (6.5 M/H). Go slower and it'll just take you longer to hatch. Go faster and Pokémon Go will discount the distance you're traveling or, if you go fast enough, ignore it altogether.

If you reach 35 KM/H (22 MP/H), you'll get the speed-lock pop up. At that point, little if any of your distance will be counted.

Do you have to walk or can you jog, run, cycle, skate, ski... or drive?

You can travel any way you like, you just can't exceed 10.5 KM/H if you want all your distance to count, or 35 KM/H if you want anything to count at all.

If you've got a great way to go 10.5 KM/H, like on a scooter, skates, or cross-country skis, go for it!

Do you have to travel in a straight line?

Pokémon Go measures distance in a straight line based on the change in GPS position. So, to get maximum distance, you should travel in a straight line too.

It's believed that Pokémon Go actually records distance more frequently, though. Somewhere between one to four times a minute. So, you could theoretically change direction after a minute or so and still get good results.

Do you have to have Pokémon Go open while you're traveling?

For your distance to record, you have to have at least one of the following things:

  • Pokémon Go open on your phone.
  • Pokémon Go Plus connected to your phone.
  • Pokémon Go for Apple Watch with a Workout started.

Are any one of those methods better than any other?

Currently, Pokémon Go for Apple Watch, once a Workout is started, doesn't record based on GPS but based on your step count, which means you don't have to worry about walking in a straight line. You can record distance while walking around your house, even using a treadmill.

Do you get anything else from hatching an Egg?

Yes! You also get XP, Candies, and Stardust. XP is always the same but candies and Stardust falls along a range.

  • 2KM egg: 200 XP, 5 to 15 candies, 500-1500 Stardust.
  • 5KM egg: 500 XP, 10 to 21 candies, 1000-2100 Stardust.
  • 10KM egg: 1000 XP, 16 to 32 candies, 1600-3200 Stardust.

Any cheats to hatch Pokémon eggs faster?

There are, though some can start or stop working depending on how Pokémon Go updates. They include ways to benefit from "GPS drift", ways to get more distance when you're driving, and more.

Pokémon Go Events: Here’s what’s next!

Posted on by Rene Ritchie.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Legendary Beasts Raikou, Entei, and Suicune are here, Mewtwo is on his way, and Safari Zone Europe has been updated. Read on for more!

Pokémon Go is intended to get you out and about, both on your own and with family and friends. One of the ways Pokémon Go tries to bolster activity is with events. Some of the events get splashy announcements and coincide with big public holidays. Others are quieter and more regular. Here's what's happened already and what's coming up next.

New: How to beat Legendary Raid Bosses | How to catch Legendary Raid Bosses | Best movesets for Legendary Pokémon

Starting soon: The Autumnal Equinox Event!

Running from September 22 to October 2, the Autumnal Equinox event is running alongside the Johto Legendary Beast Raids and focuses on hatching eggs! From Niantic:

While you're out exploring, be sure to visit your local PokéStops and Gyms to collect special 2 km Eggs that have the opportunity to hatch Pokémon such as Chansey, Mareep, Larvitar, and more. You'll also be able to get special boxes from the in-game shop that feature items like Lucky Eggs, Lure Modules, and all-new Super Incubators which hatch Eggs 1.5 times quicker!

This event also offers triple XP for any new Pokemon added to your Pokedex, so any raids you haven't completed yet would be significantly boosted with this temporary perk.

Current Events: Pokémon Go Legendary Beast Raids and EX-Raids starting August 31

Update: EX Raid passes have been sent out to a few people in Washington State and Californina, near the locations of Niatic's offices in those areas. Push notifications provided alerts, the passes can be seen in Items, and there's a banner that gives some extra information about them. So far they show 2 hour windows for raids.

Pokémon Go has announced that the Legendary Beasts, Raikou, Entei, Suicune will appear in Legendary Raids starting August 31. The Beasts will rotate through geographies, staying on each super-continent for roughly one month at a time over the course of three months. EX-Raids, which should feature Mewtwo, will also begin testing and, eventually, rollout over the next month.

From Pokémon Go

Starting August 31, the Legendary Pokémon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will begin appearing in Pokémon GO. Trainers worldwide can look forward to battling these Pokémon together with friends in Raid Battles for the chance to catch the trio of Legendary Pokémon originally from the Johto region. Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be traveling the world throughout the coming months. From August 31 to September 30, you can find these Legendary Pokémon in the following areas of the world:

  • Raikou, an Electric-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout the Americas.
  • Entei, a Fire-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout Europe and Africa.
  • Suicune, a Water-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

On September 30, all three of these Legendary Pokémon will move to a different location and will be available for Trainers to battle with friends until October 31. They will make their final stop in the last remaining location on October 31. Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be available for this limited time period, so make sure to battle against them when they arrive at Gyms near you!

While these Legendary Pokémon are traveling the world, we'll also begin an EX Raid Battle (formerly Exclusive Raid Battle) field-testing phase at select Gyms before the feature is made available globally. We have collected some valuable early feedback on the new EX Raid Battle feature and will look to further test and hone the experience through the feedback of the dedicated global Trainer community. During the field test, we'll be making periodic adjustments to EX Raid eligibility requirements, frequency, times, locations, and durations with the goal of making the EX Raid Battle feature engaging, rewarding, and most importantly, fun for Trainers who regularly participate in Raid Battles.

The first EX Raid Passes will be sent out soon, and those invited will have an opportunity to try out the new system as early as September 6. Stay tuned for more updates as we launch the EX Raid Battle field test to more Gyms in the weeks ahead. We look forward to reading all your constructive feedback on our social media channels and encourage you to continue share your thoughts throughout the EX Raid Battle field test!

The Legendary Dog Raids are great to see. The EX Raids seem overly complicated for a game as error and bug-prone as Pokémon Go has been since, well, launch. But we'll see!

Upcoming Events: Pokémon Go Safari Zones Europe starting September 16

From Pokémon Go:

The first series of Pokémon GO Safari Zone events in Europe are just around the corner! On September 16, official Pokémon GO Safari Zone activities will be taking place at Unibail-Rodamco Shopping Centres located at CentrO in Oberhausen (Germany), Les Quatre Temps in Paris (France) and La Maquinista in Barcelona (Spain).

At each Pokémon GO Safari Zone event, Trainers will receive an in-game medal and special 2 km Eggs from the various PokéStops found at each of these shopping centers. Lures will be activated all day at each PokéStop at the event so Trainers can catch Pokémon together, including Kangaskhan, Chansey, Larvitar, and others. Trainers in the area may even spot Shiny Pikachu, Shiny Magikarp, and various forms of Unown! In order to optimize the experience for all Trainers attending, Gym and Raid Battles will not be available at these shopping centers during the events.

The Pokémon GO Safari Zone events will give Trainers the chance to meet one another and catch up in the team lounges. Attendees will also receive Trainer kits for joining the day's Pokémon-catching activities. Throughout each of the participating shopping centers, special offers for Pokémon GO Trainers will be available in select stores.

Trainers will soon be able to reserve free, nontransferable tickets to each of the Pokémon GO Safari Zone events taking place on September 16. To receive a QR Code, which is required to participate in the event, the person who claims the ticket must be over the age of 13 and be present with a valid photo ID.

In addition, Trainers who were unable to get tickets will be able to discover and catch some of the Pokémon found at the Pokémon GO Safari Zones events throughout the city where the shopping center is located. We hope everyone will get a chance to explore these amazing cities while looking for Pokémon!

Visit your local shopping center's Facebook page for information on reserving a ticket to the Pokémon GO Safari Zone events in Oberhausen, Germany; Paris, France; and Barcelona, Spain on September 16.

Upcoming Events: Pokémon Go Nest Migration on September 6, 2017

The next Pokémon Go Nest Migration is expected to occur on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, at 8 p.m. EDT / 5 p.m. PDT.

Pokémon Go nest migrations but they've occurred every two weeks at exactly the same time for months. There's always a possibility that will change but, until it does, the nest migration is a safe bet.

What are Pokémon Go Nests and how do you find them?

2017 Pokémon Go Events: The potentials!

Based on past events, there are a few guesses we can make about future events. First, regional holidays don't mean regional events. Halloween isn't an internationally observed occasion but the event was worldwide. U.S. Thanksgiving is only celebrated in the U.S., but was likewise a worldwide event. Granted, Pokémon Go is developed by a U.S. company, but it does indicate that other regional holidays could provide the impetus for other worldwide events.

Also, Pokémon Go has multiple levers to pull. The game can increase rewards, like candy, XP, and stardust. It can decrease requirements, like walking distance. It can increase spawn rates for all or specific Pokémon, like pink colored Pokémon or water-types, and create limited edition Pokémon just for events, like Party Hat Pikachu. It can also give away items or increase their duration, like 1-use Incubators or 8-hour Lures.

Pokémon Go can have events to aid in charitable causes, like the highly localized tsunami-relief event in Japan that featured Lapras or Snorlax exclusively for a week. There was also an event simply to promote the new streaks and bonuses. So, if they want to maintain momentum and there's too long a gap between proper occasions, Pokémon Go can invent their own.

Pokémon Go type-events

So far, Pokémon Go has held the following:

  • Ghost-type event - October, 2016 (Halloween)
  • Water-type event - March, 2017 (Water Festival)
  • Grass-type event - May, 2017
  • Rock-type event - May, 2017 (Adventure Week)
  • Fire- and Ice-type event - June 2017 (Solstice)

That still leaves several type-events for Pokémon Go to run during the rest of the year:

  • Bug-type event.
  • Dark-type event.
  • Dragon-type event.
  • Electric-type event.
  • Fairy-type event.
  • Fighter-type event.
  • Flying-type event.
  • Ground-type event.
  • Normal-type event.
  • Poison-type event.
  • Psychic-type event.
  • Steel-type event.

Since Pokémon Go has shown they're not averse to combining type events, like Fire and Ice, we could see some really interesting combinations.

Repeat events

During the first year, Pokémon Go held events for Halloween, the introduction of streak bonuses, Thanksgiving, the holidays, and New Year. There's no reason to believe at least most of those events won't be repeated this year.

Check out the recaps and links below to see what the previous events offered and what may be offered again soon.

Past Pokémon Go Events

The best indicator of future behavior is past behavior. So, to look forward to the next Pokémon Go events, it's helpful to look back at the events that have already run.

Pokémon World Championships 2017

European Sightings 2017

Safari Zones Europe might was drastically downscaled but Niantic made it up to players with European sightings instead. Similar to what happened with Pokémon Go Fest Chicago, an extra-continental legendary — in this case Kangaskhan — and Unown spelling out the location — in this case Europe — were being spotted.

Pikachu Outbreak Japan 2017

As part of Pokémon's Pikachu Outbreak celebration in Japan, Pokémon Go brought Mr. Mine over for a short amount of time, increased spawns for Unown letters spelling Yokohama, added rare spawns from 2K eggs, introduced Shiny Pichu, Pikachu, and Raichu, and unleashed the very first Mewtwo Legendary Raids: with 9+ hour times, 50+ premiere balls, and... a guaranteed catch rate of 100% — at least for the event.

Pokémon Go Fest Chicago Bonus Event 2017

Following up on Pokémon Go Fest Chicago, a slew of bonuses were unlocked, including:

  • Double Stardust
  • Double Candy
  • Double XP
  • Increased Pokémon encounters
  • Reduced hatching distance
  • Reduced buddy distance

Hopefully we won't have to wait another year for that many bonuses again.

More on Pokémon Go Fest Chicago.

Pokémon Go Fest Chicago

Pokémon Go Fest Chicago was the first major real-world event for Niantic's incredibly popular augmented reality, geo-hunting game. It took place Saturday, July 22, at Grant Park in Chicago, IL, and — the servers crashed and burned.

Still, Pokémon Go made good with refunds, $100 in Poké Coins, and a Lugia for every participant, as well as a 100% catch rate for Legendary Raids around the venue.

More on Pokémon Go Fest Chicago.

Pokémon Go Anniversary Event

Pokémon Go's Anniversary Event ran from July 6 to July 24 with a special Ash-hat Pikachu for players to catch in the wild and discounted Anniversary Boxes and Special Boxes to buy in the Poké Shop. The first Box was underwhelming but the second set delivered.

Pokémon Go Solstice fire- and ice-type event

From June 13 to 21, 2017 (extended a day due to Pokémon Trainer Club (PTC) login issues, Pokémon Go held and event of Ice- and Fire in honor of the summer soultice in the north and the winter solstice in the south. In addition to extra fire- and ice-type spawns, there was 5x XP on hatching eggs, 3x XP on catching Pokémon, and 50% off Lucky Eggs in the Poké Shop.

Pokémon Go "Golden Week" Lure Event at McDonald's Japan

Pokémon Go held a Lure Event for "Golden Week" in Japan, from April 29 to May 7, 2017.

Rough translation, cleaned up from Google:

During the period from Saturday, April 29 to Sunday, May 7, the petals will dance at PokéStops located at about 2,500 local MacDonald's. The "Lure module collaboration event" will be held so that you can get a lot of Pokemon! GO Golden Week goes to McDonald's GO!

Unlike the American Thanksgiving event, which was made international, this event was Japan-only, with McDonald's Japan footing the bill.

Pokémon Go and Knight Foundation on May 7, 2017

Niantic, the developer behind Pokémon Go and Ingress, and the Knight Foundation, and organization focused on community engagement, announced an ongoing partnership that hopes to use location and augmented-reality based gaming to help bring neighborhoods and neighbors together.

The first event was set for May 7 in Charlotte, North Carolina, as part of the Open Streets 704 event in a 2.5-mile area. 16 PokéStops and two Gyms, selected by the City of Charlotte at significant sites along the route, were offer increased spawns to help make it exciting and engaging for everyone.

May 4, 2017 - Niantic, Inc., creators of hit augmented reality games Pokémon GO and Ingress, and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation have formed a multi-year partnership to advance civic engagement in local communities around the United States through augmented reality experiences. The partnership will foster discovery, bring communities together, and promote engagement within public spaces by leveraging Niantic's mobile location-based technology and experiences at select community events supported by The Knight Foundation.

"We founded Niantic to give people the chance to connect with the world around them using technology and games in innovative ways," said John Hanke, CEO, Niantic, Inc. "The partnership with The Knight Foundation is a great forum to explore how technology can drive civic engagement."

The collaboration will play out at community events in several cities, including Knight-sponsored Open Streets events. These temporarily close off car traffic so people can use streets for walking, bicycling, dancing, playing and socializing. The initiative will also tap unique facets of a city's public spaces such as parks and libraries to bring together people of diverse backgrounds and build a sense of shared community. Over the next year, Niantic will collaborate with civic leaders in several cities where Knight Foundation supports community engagement. The initiative will work to enhance these events featuring special content within their augmented reality mobile games, Ingress and Pokémon GO.

"Pokemon Go has already showed us the impact technology can have on getting people out into public," said Sam Gill, Knight vice president for learning and impact. "We're excited to work with Niantic to explore new ways to help people engage with each other and their neighborhoods."

The first event in the collaboration between Niantic and the Knight Foundation will be hosted on May 7 in Charlotte, North Carolina as part of the Open Streets 704 event in a 2.5 mile area. Though this first event will be experimental, fans of Pokémon GO can look forward to interacting with 16 PokéStops and two Gyms selected by the City of Charlotte at significant sites along the route. These locations will be highlighted on the official Open Streets 704 route map displayed at the event. To further immerse fans in the real-world experience, the physical location of each PokéStop will be physically marked along the route.

There are some reports that the event wasn't well organized and that many weren't pleased the only thing they got for participating was a set of stickers. Others seem to have really liked it. Either way, I hope we see many more of these, and like these, going forward.

Pokémon Go 'Eggstravaganza' Spring Event 2017

The Pokémon Go Spring Even lasted from April 13 to April 20, 2017. During the event, you got double XP, extra candy from egg hatches, and many 5 KM and 10 KM Pokémon began hatching from 2 KM eggs, including Lapras and Aerodactyl. Lucky Eggs were also offered at 50% in the Pokémon Go Shop.

More on the Pokémon Go Spring / Easter Event

Pokémon Go Water Festival 2017

The Pokémon Go Water Festival was done to help raise awareness for various global water days and weeks. During the festival, water-type Pokémon spawned at a much-increased rate, often replacing the typical common and rare spawns almost completely. And yes, that included Lapras!

In addition, a Magikarp hat was made available for trainers to wear, and Shiny Pokémon were introduced into Pokémon Go for the first time in the form of gold Magikarp and red Gyarados.

Pokémon Go Snorlax in Japan Event 2017

Similar to last fall's Lapras event, Japan's Kumamoto region is getting a Snorlax event to help bolster tourism following the earthquake of 2016.

Here's an approximate translation:

We've received information that in the Kumamoto prefecture and in Oita prefecture, Yufu city and Beppu city, Snorlax has begun appearing more frequently. Was it roused by the Pokémon flute? The phenomenon is expected to continue from March 4 to March 13. There are areas and places where local reconstruction work is continuing. Do not enter a dangerous place. Otherwise, please enjoy Kumamoto and Oita!

If you're in Japan or have wanted to go to Japan, and Snorlax is still on your must-get list, now's the time to go!

Best Clear Cases for iPhone X

Posted on by Luke Filipowicz.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Don't want to hide the beauty of your new iPhone X underneath a case? Check out these great clear cases!

The iPhone X looks different than any iPhone we have seen to date. With its beautiful edge-to-edge OLED display on the front and the vertical dual-camera system on the back, the iPhone X is a beautiful phone and you're going to want to keep it that way.

If you're looking for a case that will not only protect your iPhone X but show off its bold style, you'll want a clear case! Here are our favorite clear cases for the iPhone X.

Otterbox Symmetry

Otterbox is known for its protective cases, and the Symmetry line offers that protection in a slimmer profile. The Symmetry series offers a number of different color choice and pattern options, but you can pick up the Symmetry case in a transparent option.

Otterbox has spent hundreds of hours testing the case to make sure it will keep your phone protected while still looking great. It may be a bit more expensive than some of the others at $36, but it does come with a one-year warranty. Should you experience any defects in the case at all, you can get a replacement no problem.

See at Amazon

Speck Presidio

If you want to have a protective case that doesn't take away from the beauty of your iPhone X, Speck's Presidio case is the way to go. The case provides a solid layer of protection that is designed to take an impact to the phone and other than a translucent Speck logo on the back, the case is totally transparent.

With its scratch-resistant coating, you can ensure that both your phone and case stay looking great, and the precise cutouts make it easy to access all your ports. Plus, Speck has tested the materials it uses against UV light and the Presidio case should resist yellowing over time. You may pay a bit more for this case than other clear ones (about $35), but it is worth every penny you pay for it.

See at Amazon

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Style

We regularly recommend the Unicorn Beetle Pro — which is a phenomenal heavy duty case — but this time we're recommending the Unicorn Beetle Style, which is a slender, sexier, and more transparent alternative.

The Style cases feature a hard polycarbonate back with a more flexible TPU bumper around the edges. The PC is clear, while the TPU comes in black and rose gold, so you can admire your iPhone X while enjoying a little splash of color. For $15, this is a hell of a deal and a great case if you need more protection than what minimalist cases can offer.

See at Amazon

Ringke Air

The Ringke Air boasts MIL-STD 810G - 516.6 Certified Military Grade Drop Protection in a slim, form-fitting case that doesn't add much weight to the phone. The case will keep your phone looking great, let you show off the color of it, and prevent damages if you happen to drop it.

The company is offering a crystal clear version, as well as some with a color tint so that they are mostly clear but have a slight tint to match your preference. They cost about $25 on Amazon; however, they have been seen on sale already for as low as $7. At that price you could easily pick a few of these cases up to make sure you always have a spare.

See at Amazon

Spigen Ultra Hybrid

If you are looking for a great thin clear case, the Spigen Ultra Hybrid may be one to consider. The case offers a form fit, and is fully clear, allowing you to show off the back and sides of the phone and keep them protected. You won't add bulk to the phone, and it keeps it easy to hold thanks to its hard back and TPU-coated sides. I have used Spigen clear cases in the past, and I have found they have resisted turning yellow the best out of the clear cases I have personally used. Starting for about $25 on Amazon, you really can't go wrong by picking up one of these to try out.

You'll notice that Amazon says they will be in stock on September 29th, so while it won't ship right away, you'll definitely get it long before the November 3rd release date of the iPhone X.

How to fix iOS 11 and iPhone 8 battery life problems

Posted on by Rene Ritchie.
Categories: Uncategorized.

How do you fix battery life problems after updating to iOS 11 or upgrading to iPhone 8? Here are our top power-saving tips!

Apple currently offers the standard iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and the smaller iPhone SE. Between them, they're rated for 10 to 12 hours of battery life while browsing the web, checking email, and chatting. But if you've just updated to iOS 11, or you're upgrading to an iPhone 8, you might see a serious drain on your battery power. Rather than cursing and throwing your iPhone — as much as you might want to! — here's what you can do to fix battery life and get on with your life.

Wait for it

Whether you restore from backup or set up as new, your new iPhone or new version of iOS 11 could expend up a lot of power downloading apps, games, mail, photos, and other content. That's because the Wi-Fi radio stays on for a long time, and Spotlight — the iOS search system — has to index everything. When radios and processors can't sleep, power consumption goes way up.

If you've just upgraded the hardware, updated to iOS 11, or restored, give things a day or so to finish up and go back to normal. If you're fine after that, great. If not, keep reading!

Test on standby

In addition to the system taking a while to really finish transferring everything over, we also tend to spend a long time playing with new phones and new features. That's especially true with things like Live Photos, 12 megapixel cameras, 4K video, iMessage apps, Siri integrations, and more. So the screen stays on, storage gets written to, WI-Fi and maybe cellular radios stay lit up, and power gets consumed.

In other words, if you're battery feels like it's only lasting half as long, the first step to fixing it is figuring out if you're using it twice as much.

So, note down how much battery life you have left. Then put your iPhone down for 20-40 minutes. When you pick it back up, note down how much battery life you have left again. If there isn't a big change while in standby, you're probably okay, and your battery life will return to normal when your usage returns to normal (after the novelty wears off).

If your iPhone continued to drain and drain fast, even when you weren't using it, keep reading!

Reset

Rebooting, restarting, or resetting is the oldest cliche in troubleshooting. Because it works. Sometimes a good reset is all that's needed to kick bad bits loose.

iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 requires different button combo than previous iPhones:

If your iPhone 8 or iPhone 7 stops responding and you can't even turn it off by holding down the power button, you may need

  1. Press and hold down the On/Off button on the right side
  2. While continuing to hold the On/Off button, press and hold the volume down button on the left side of your iPhone.
  3. Hold both buttons as the screen turns off, and keep holding them until the screen turns back on and displays the Apple logo.

For those previous iPhones updated to iOS 11, it's the same buttons:

  1. Press and hold down both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time.
  2. Keep them held down until you see an Apple logo.
  3. Let go.

For iPhone 6 and later, the power button is located on the right side:

On iPhone through iPhone 5s, and iPhone SE, the power button is located on the top:

Once your iPhone has rebooted, repeat the previous steps and see if battery drain has returned to normal. If not, keep reading!

Check usage

iOS contains a terrific battery usage — aka battery shaming — utility that lets you know exactly which apps and services are using your battery and how.

  1. Launch Settings from your Home screen.
  2. Tap on Battery.
  3. Wait a moment for Battery Usage to populate.

  4. Tap on the Show Detailed Usage button to get a breakdown of foreground and background power usage.
  5. Tap on Last 7 Days to get a broader look at power consumption over time.

It can be tricky to understand, but here's the deal: If you see iCloud Photo Library there, and you've just upgraded, it's a sign you're downloading thumbnails and things should return to normal when you're done. If you see Facebook there and it says 4% on screen and 40% on background, it's a sign something has gone wrong.

At that point, you can force quit a rogue app and likely get your power consumption back to normal.

  1. Double click the Home button to bring up the fast app switcher.
  2. Swipe to the app you want to force quit.
  3. Touch the app card and flick it up and off the screen

If an app appears to be consistently misbehaving, you can try re-installing it or even switching to an alternative app or a service's website for some of your activity.

Restore as new

Sometimes restoring from an old backup, especially a backup of a different device like an iPad, can be less than ideal. Cruft builds up and things just don't run like they used to. Sometimes your once-fresh setup also goes stale.

If you suspect that's the case, you can suck it up and set up your iPhone as new. Yes, it can be an incredible pain in the apps, but if you have a significant and continual problem, and nothing else can fix it, setting up as new can be a solution.

It's the nuclear option, no doubt about it. You will have to set up almost everything again, including passwords and settings, and you will lose all your saved data like game levels, health, and activities, but in most cases, your battery life will be better than ever.

Battery cases and banks

If you need to go longer than the built-in battery in your iPhone will allow, one option is to get an external battery. You can either get a battery case or. a battery bank. A battery case keeps everything tightly packed together but limits the size and scope of the power source — it can't be too big to fit in your pocket, and it typically can't power other devices as well. A battery bank can come in all shapes and sizes and can often charge multiple devices, even at once.

I have both a battery case for my iPhone 7 and a battery bank with two charging ports for my iPhone 7 Plus and iPad. They've both been lifesavers, especially when traveling. Here are some of iMore's favorites:

Low Power Mode

If your battery life is normal but you want to get even more out of it, case or no case, you can use Low Power Mode. It turns off processes and otherwise conserves as much power as it can.

  1. Launch the Settings app from the Home screen.
  2. Tap Battery.
  3. Toggle Low Power Mode to on.

You can tell when Low Power Mode is enabled by looking at the color of the battery icon — it turns yellow. It will automatically turn off any time you recharge above 80% or more, so if you want to keep it on, you'll need to switch it on every time.

You can also switch on Low Power Mode quickly by using Siri. Just say "Hey Siri, turn on low power mode!"

If even Low Power mode isn't enough — you're stuck in the wilderness, at a conference with poor reception and no power — there are a few other hacks you can try.

  • Turn down the screen brightness.
  • Set Auto-Lock to 1 minute.
  • Use headphones instead of the speaker if you have to listen to audio or music.
  • Hide the Clock app in a folder. That animation uses GPU cycles. (Okay, silicon geeks only.)

Contact Apple

Every once and a while, you get a problem you just can't solve. Like any electronics, sometimes things go wrong. If you have AppleCare or AppleCare+, you should absolutely book a Genius Bar appointment and avail yourself of it. If you don't live close to an Apple Store, you can call 1-800-MY-APPLE in order to set up a mail-in repair.

Amazon is offering $100 iTunes Gift Cards for $90

Posted on by Jared DiPane.
Categories: Uncategorized.

After being sold from third parties for years, Amazon appears to have recently decided to start officially selling iTunes Gift Cards.

If you're looking for another reliable place to pick up a digital iTunes Gift Card from, you can add Amazon to your list. The internet retailer is now selling $25, $50, and $100 cards, and right now you can save 10% on the $100 option.

Back at Apple's annual developer conference, it was announced that Amazon Video was making its way to Apple TV later this year, so this may be a part of that. iTunes Gift Cards have been available on Amazon previously through 3rd-party sellers, but these listings are from Amazon directly.

Whether you are looking to purchase some new apps for your iPhone, iPad, or MacBook, or want to buy some music and Pokécoins, this is the best (and smartest) way to do it. You can also use it to pay for your monthly Apple Music, Netflix or HBO subscription. While it may not be the biggest discount we've seen on the $100 cards, it isn't very often that they go on sale at all anymore, so you may want to stock up while you can.

Keep your lawn green without emptying your wallet with Rachio’s $146 smart sprinkler

Posted on by Jared DiPane.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Late last year I moved into a brand new home that came with an irrigation system, and in the first month, I managed to run up a $300 water bill from using the sprinklers. I knew nothing about how to set it up, or when to have it water the lawn, and I was pretty frustrated with it. I quickly reduced the frequency of the system, but the lawn still wasn't looking great, and I was quickly getting annoyed. Then, I found Rachio.

My grass is now looking better than ever, and my wallet isn't emptying every month, and yours can too! As part of its Gold Box deals of the day, Amazon is offering the 2nd-gen 8-zone Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller for $145.99. This is a savings of around $55 from its usual selling price of $200. We've seen a few deals in the past, but this is the best price so far.

  • Works with Alexa. Control watering with the power of your voice. Use more than 100 different voice commands to run zones, set rain skips and more.
  • Control from anywhere. Download the Rachio app to manage your sprinkler system on a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
  • Adapts to local weather. Rachio will automatically skip a scheduled watering cycle when rain is predicted and adjust watering times as the seasons change, saving you water and money.
  • Reduce your water bill. Save up to 50% on your outdoor watering bill with WaterSense certified technology. Check your local water provider for rebates (often up to 100% of retail value).
  • Customize to your yard. Stop guessing - input zone details like soil type, plant type and sun exposure to let Rachio automatically set up the best watering schedules for your lawn. Tailored schedules give your yard exactly the water needed to thrive, and not a drop more.

This price is only good for one day, so don't miss out. After using it for a few months, you'll quickly realize how valuable it is and how much it is saving you. You may also be able to take advantage of a local rebate after purchasing the system, so be sure to look into that!

How to zip and unzip documents in the Files app

Posted on by Serenity Caldwell.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Zipped is the tiny zip/unzip utility we both need and deserve in this world.

I'm largely thrilled about the inclusion of the Files app in iOS 11 — save for the omission of zipping and unzipping (or, in more technical terms, compressing and uncompressing) documents. The Files app will store any number of compressed documents, but try to open one, and you'll just get the occasional prompt to preview files. There's no way to compress a group of documents through the app, either.

Enter Zipped, a tiny utility for iPhone and iPad that can zip together any number of files or unzip them to the Files app. On the iPad Pro, it fully supports drag and drop, allowing you to open Zipped in a Slide Over pane and drag anything you like from the Files app on over.

I've been testing Zipped on both iPhone and iPad for the last week, and it's a wonderful little addition to my iPad Pro-only workflow. There are apps (like GoodReader) that include zip/unzip functionality, but I almost prefer the lightweight nature of this app — it doesn't try to do too much, leaving the rest of the organization process to the user. (Which, honestly, is how I like it.)

Zipped is $0.99 on the App Store, and it's available now to all devices running iOS 11 or later. Take a look!

Belkin’s iPhone dongle helps you listen while you charge

Posted on by Jon Fingas.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Last year's Belkin Rockstar dongle was a lifesaver for iPhone 7 owners who wanted to charge their device while doing just about anything else, but it had a problem: with two Lightning ports, you still had to add a second adapter to plug in your favorite pair of 3.5mm headphones. Thankfully, those days are over. Belkin has introduced a new version of the Rockstar with a 3.5mm jack in place of one of the Lightning connectors. This still won't change the clunkiness of your setup, but at least you won't have to explain why you carry two dongles with your iPhone 8.

How to view your past Activity rings and workouts in Activity for iPhone

Posted on by Serenity Caldwell.
Categories: Uncategorized.

If you have an Apple Watch, your iPhone is always watching… your activity data, that is. Here's how to peek into the archives with the Activity app for iPhone.

Though the Health app officially syncs most of your Apple Watch's activity data as of iOS 11, Apple still offers a stand-alone Activity app to get a more concentrated look at your fitness alongside Apple Watch. Activity is to Apple Watch as the Fitbit app is to a Fitbit — it's a tracker-exclusive app that you won't see unless you have one of Apple's wearables.

You can view a ton of data in this app, including your entire history at a glance with Apple Watch (mine goes back to April 24, 2015), an individual day's Move, Exercise, and Stand goals, past workouts, and a lot more. We're going to focus on looking up your past data here; if you want to learn more about Activity achievements and sharing your Activity with your friends, check out our other articles below:

How to track activity progress and achievements with Activity for iPhone

How to set up and use Activity sharing on Apple Watch

How to view your Activity history at a glance

In the History tab of your Activity app, you'll see a calendar view with three Activity circles — Move, Exercise, and Stand — in place of traditional calendar events. Every day shows how close you were to achieving or succeeding that goal; in addition, any day you log a workout will receive a green dot in the upper right corner.

  1. Open the Activity app for iPhone.
  2. Tap on the History tab.
  3. Scroll through your past activity rings.

    Note: If you drag your finger to the right on this screen, you can see each week's average movement goal, and whether you met, exceeded, or lost ground on that goal.

How to view your Activity history in detail

If the month-at-a-glance view isn't quite in depth enough, you can tap on any of the dates to zoom into day view, with a week's view listed across the top. To switch from day to day, you can either tap on different days in the week viewer, or do a full-press left-to-right swipe on the main display to advance (or move back) one day.

A brief animation will play, displaying how far you got in your Activity progress for that day; from there, you can scroll down to see a detailed hour-by-hour breakdown of your Move calories, exercise minutes, and stand hours. Each is presented by default as a 24 graph, but you can also swipe left on the cards to get the straight numbers.

In addition, if you've hit any achievement milestones, those will be displayed in an achievements section. These live above any workouts you performed, along with their length. You'll also get a few basic metrics like steps and distance, which display every day whether you've worked out or not.

How to view your workout history in detail

While you can view your day's workout in detail from the History screen, you can get a much better sense of your workouts on both a grand scale and detailed one from the Workouts tab.

Like History, Workouts organizes your workouts by month and year, but in a slightly different interface: In year mode, Workouts displays a brief overview of each month, the number of workouts you've done, the total time spent, and calories burned, along with averages for time and calories. There's also an option in the upper right corner (hidden behind "All Workouts") that allows you to Filter the types of workouts you display.

Tap on a month, and you'll get a workout-by-workout breakdown for each one you've done that month, along with dates, workout types, and total calories burned. In month view, as in year view, you can filter those workouts by type.

You can tap on any individual Workout to open a detailed view; it offers information about when and where you performed it, your active and total calories burned, total time, average heart rate, a scatterplot graph of your heart rate, and a graph about your recovery heart rate. (To see your recovery, swipe left on the Heart Rate graph.)

If you're on watchOS 4, that scatterplot graph is available for all your workouts — not just the ones you've done since upgrading — though you may not see data on Heart Rate Recovery for older workouts.

If you've logged a workout with a GPS or GPS + Cellular watch, you'll also get information about your elevation gains, location, weather, and more.

If you've logged specific workouts like the running, walking, or swimming options, you'll also get workout-specific details, including a route map (iPhone required for Series 0 or Series 1; GPS-only Series 2 or GPS & GPS + Cellular Series 3 can use the feature as a stand-alone), swim strokes, average pace, splits, segments, and more.

If you have a route map, you can view it in full-screen by tapping on the icon; route maps display your route as notated by GPS, along with your general pace (green for good, yellow for OK, red for "are you sure you weren't stopping to get ice cream along the way?"). You can tap the globe icon to view your map against a satellite view, or use a multifinder pinch or spread to zoom in or out.

When you're finished looking at your hard work, you can also share it as an image (with the not-so-humblebrag "I worked out for X hours with my #AppleWatch") to any number of your social networks, or save it locally to your camera roll.

Note: Some users aren't seeing certain route maps as of iOS 11. We're looking into the cause and will get back with more information!


How to view history and workout data in the Health app

As of iOS 11, you can also view your Activity rings and past exercises directly in the Health app. To do so, open the Health app and tap on the Health Data tab, then navigate to the Activity section.

Your Activity rings should be at the top of the Today pane; you can tap on them to see detailed graphs broken down by Day, Week, Month, or Year, and swipe on the graphs to move them around. The best way to make sure you always see your Activity rings in the Health app is to toggle the Add to Favorites switch; this will put the Activity widget front and center on the app's Today tab, rather than having it be hidden inside Health Data.

Jumping back to the main Activity screen, you can also view your active energy, resting energy, stand hours, exercise minutes, flights climbed, steps, walking + running distance, total workout time, VO2 max, swim distance, swim strokes, NikeFuel breakdown, and cycling distance, along with some recommended apps. (Wheelchair users will also see options for Pushes and wheelchair distance.)

How to manage your iCloud storage on iPhone or iPad

How do I free up iCloud storage space? It's all conveniently located in your settings!

If you're on a free iCloud storage plan, you're probably already aware that you only get 5GB to store your information. That isn't a lot of space, especially if you own multiple iOS devices. One way you can free up some additional space is by manually choosing what app data gets stored and what doesn't.

Turning off app data doesn't mean that apps will not return to your device during an iCloud restore; it just means the app's data will not return. Typically, the camera roll and document-centric apps take up the most space. If you decide to turn these off, just make sure you're okay with losing the data within them in the event of a restore.

We'd suggest saving any documents or photos to your computer frequently to free up storage space. Or you can upgrade your iCloud storage plan if you want to store all your things all the time.

How to view your iCloud usage

Want to check and see what percentage of your iCloud storage space you've used? It's easy.

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap the Apple ID banner at the top.
  3. Tap iCloud. The colored graph at the top shows you which types of data are taking up space and how much.

Which iCloud storage plan is right for you?

Instead of just being able to house your contacts, calendars, Photo Stream, and backups, iCloud Drive can act as a central repository for lots of different kinds of files.

You can then access these files through various different kinds of apps. iCloud Drive can also help take some of the strain off of your physical storage constraints if you need it to.

You'll need to pick a monthly subscription plan that dictates how much iCloud Drive storage space you get to share and access on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac or PC.

Which storage plan is right for your needs? Read our complete guide!

How to buy more iCloud storage (or downgrade your iCloud storage)

If you have a few bucks to spare, I highly recommend ponying up a few bucks a month to increase your storage space.

  1. Launch Settings from your Home screen.
  2. Tap the Apple ID banner at the top.
  3. Tap iCloud.

  4. Tap Manage Storage under iCloud.
  5. Tap Change Storage Plan.
  6. Tap an option. Prices will vary based on region (mine are Canadian).
  7. Tap Buy in the top right corner.

By default, you get 5GB on iCloud, but you can upgrade to 50GB by paying $0.99/month (U.S.) — enough to save smartphone photos and videos for the typical user — or higher-priced 200GB/$2.99, and 2TB/$9.99 plans. Here's how you can upgrade.

How to sync app data with iCloud

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap the Apple ID banner at the top.
  3. Tap on iCloud.
  4. Tap the switches next to the apps you'd like to turn off.
  5. Decide what to do with the existing app data.

    • Tap Keep on My iPhone to keep the data.
    • Tap Delete from My iPhone to get rid of it.

Now you can be more selective when deciding what gets backed up to iCloud, so that nothing unnecessary is taking up valuable storage space.

Third-party app data

Not all third-party apps support iCloud storage. The ones that do will appear towards the bottom of the Apps Using iCloud section. You can turn them off the same way as described above, but you don't have to decide to keep the data on your iPhone or delete it.

If you want to disable all third-party apps, just tap the switch next to iCloud Drive. iCloud Drive is the gatekeeper for third-party apps, as well as Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. If you disable iCloud Drive, you won't be able to view or collaborate on shared documents.

How to set up iCloud Keychain

iCloud Keychain is Apple's attempt to bring password management to the mainstream. With it, your account names, passwords, and even credit cards numbers can be safely and securely stored on your iPhone or iPad keychain, and synced across all your devices thanks to iCloud. In conjunction with Safari, it can also generate new, unique passwords, and autofill them whenever you need them. So, how does it all work?

How to set up Find My iPhone

Find My iPhone lets you remotely track your lost, stolen, or misplaced Apple device — be it an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, AirPods, or Mac — from virtually anywhere, as long as the device in question has some kind of internet connection. Not only can Find My iPhone help you locate a stolen or lost device, but it can also assist in remotely wiping your private information so your device data doesn't fall into the wrong hands. If you're not sure where to start, we can walk you through enabling Find My iPhone on all your devices.

How to sync your documents and data to iCloud

Want to use iCloud Drive for app documents and data? Here's what you need to know.

How to share your iPhone's current location

If you use Find My Friends, you can control who you share your location with and from what device it's shared. Here's how!

How to change your iCloud email aliases

Want to add or change the iCloud.com email aliases for your account? Here's how.

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap the Apple ID banner at the top.
  3. Tap iCloud.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and select Mail.
  5. Tap the switches next to the aliases you wish to use or disable.

How to delete files in iCloud

By default, Apple gives all users 5GB of free online storage space for backups, synced data, and photos. But as you might be well aware, when trying to clear physical space on your iPhone, 5GB is not a lot of storage. Here's how to try and free up even more space:

Option A: Clean up your image library

There are a few places in the Photos app you can visit to help spring clean your iCloud Photo Library and reduce its size. First, it's helpful to browse through your most recent images; if you have any extra selfies or extraneous video you no longer want to keep, that can help. You can even visit their dedicated folders in Photos > Albums: You can find storage space offenders in Selfies, Videos, Slo-Mo, Time-lapse, Bursts, Screenshots, and Panoramas.

Note: You can't currently delete files solely from iCloud or solely from your device — delete a photo or video from your iPhone, and it's gone everywhere. Instead, Apple intelligently manages what gets stored on your device and iCloud versus what only gets stored in iCloud.

Once you've done your initial sprucing, check the Recently Deleted album; it stores any images you've initially deleted for 30 days before getting rid of them for good — in case you've had a change of heart. If you just want those pictures gone, however, you can press Select, then Delete All to remove them from iCloud Photo Library.

Option B: Delete your old device backups

In addition to storing your images and video, iCloud is designed to store your iPhone and iPad backups — and if you've been using an iPhone for a while, chances are you might have some old backups taking up valuable space. Here's the fix as it appears in iOS 10.3 or later:

  1. Launch the Settings app from your Home screen.
  2. Tap the Apple ID banner at the top.
  3. Tap iCloud.
  4. Tap Manage Storage.

  5. Tap Backup
  6. Tap a device under Backups.

  7. Tap Delete Backup.
  8. Tap Turn Off & Delete in the pop-up.

You can use this method to delete multiple backups; just tap a different device in step 6 each time.

This should help relieve your iCloud account of any extraneous backup files.
