    How's the iPhone 6S battery holding up?

    The 6s plus has a decently sized battery, and the power supply they ship with it only supplies 5w (1 amp) to the charger in the phone, so that 10.4 watt-hour battery takes a few hours to charge from that small power supply (especially if you're using the phone at the same time). If you have an...

    Apps gaining support for 3D Touch

    I think it's a fair price, and I've bought Tweetbot a few times even though I don't use it regularly (and as iOS 9 trends toward direct app links, I imagine I'll trend toward the Twitter app itself more). This comes up every time they release a major new version. I am totally supportive of...

    3D Touch tricks

    This is the case for the stock live wallpapers included with the phone. The pressure also determines how far along in the animation it goes. If you press hard right away, it goes to the "end" of the animation quickly. If you only press halfway, it goes to the halfway point. as you gradually...

    iPhone 6s Uses Different-Sized A9 Chips From Samsung and TSMC

    AnandTech has weighed in on the situation. http://www.anandtech.com/show/9708/analyzing-apple-statement-for-tsmc-and-samsung-a9 They don't think there's been a large enough and controlled enough test to make any conclusions. That's what I was thinking and hoping. And I agree...it'd take...

    iPhone 6s Uses Different-Sized A9 Chips From Samsung and TSMC

    It cuts out email fetch/push and forces auto lock to 30 seconds, both pretty annoying to me. I'll try it again and see if I can stand it. If I could use a custom low power mode that lets me pick what low power options to use, that'd be ideal. The low power menu on my HTC One lets me choose...

    IPhone 6s vs the rest

    If by streaming and mirroring, you mean to a computer or a TV, then you can do this with AirPlay to an Apple TV or a compatible program on the computer (AirServer is my fave, there's also Reflector). You can use some screen recording software with those on your computer to get it streamed over...

    iPhone 6s Uses Different-Sized A9 Chips From Samsung and TSMC

    Yeah, they posted a known issue about this being in the last few versions. They must have some kind of CPU keep alive bug that's keeping the processor cranking at full speed or something (I guess I'm really fortunate I don't have the Samsung A9!). That's the main reason that I haven't returned...

    iPhone 6s Uses Different-Sized A9 Chips From Samsung and TSMC

    Dang. I know that's a 6s plus, instead of a 6s, and I know Downcast has a battery killer bug in it right now, but I'm dreaming of numbers like yours. (that's a pretty cool screenshot stitcher, btw, very handy!) I forgot to plug in on the way to work/at work, now I'm gonna have to plug in at...

    iPhone 6s Uses Different-Sized A9 Chips From Samsung and TSMC

    I can understand the apprehension, though. Exchange it before running into the problem, for fear that the problem doesn't manifest itself until after the return/exchange period where it becomes a warranty/discretion thing That reminds me. I don't know if they had multiple suppliers for the iPad...

    iPhone 6s Uses Different-Sized A9 Chips From Samsung and TSMC

    I still don't think these anecdotal impressions in the videos I've seen so far are very conclusive. iPhones sitting on the same wifi network downloading the same YouTube video could have a very different experience regardless of CPU fab, with one of them having to keep the radio active more due...

    It chaps my hide.

    The web rewards quantity over quality. They have it down to a science. Algorithms that generate articles with headlines designed to pull in page views, and page layouts that try to encourage getting likes before even reading the story. So, plaster the web with cute kid, celebrity fail, cat...

    iPhone 6s Uses Different-Sized A9 Chips From Samsung and TSMC

    These things throttle very quickly and dramatically compared to previous iPhones, and there's already the variability between each result as it is, from background tasks taking up CPU time to minor drifts in frequency or missing the occasional RAM strobe and having to wait. Scores taken from...

    How do I access files on iCloud?

    That'll show any documents stored in iCloud Drive (for me all I see is keynote, pages, and numbers, and a couple of files I sneakernetted from computer to computer using iCloud Drive). For things like photos, contacts, and notes, you can also log into iCloud.com with your Apple ID on a laptop or...

    6s and 6s Plus fare "surprisingly well" in waterproof test

    The stats on replacements/repairs due to water damage must be pretty significant if they're putting in the engineering effort and manufacturing cost of extra sealing. Sounds like this guy got a lucky break though with his phones surviving an hour in the water. I saw the ringer switch go off on...
