iOS 11.2 Beta 1 Released for Testing

Oct 30, 2017 - 2 Comments

iOS 11.1 and macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 beta

Apple has released the first iOS 11.2 beta for iPhone and iPad users participating in the beta testing program. The initial iOS 11.2 beta 1 release is available for developers, but presumably will arrive to public beta users soon after.

The release of iOS 11.2 beta is somewhat curious because Apple is also currently running a separate beta program with iOS 11.1, perhaps indicating that iOS 11.1 final will debut very soon (if not today), perhaps when or before iPhone X arrives this Friday to early pre-order customers and those who show up to Apple retail stores.

Oct 29, 2017 - 10 Comments

Add new cards to Apple Pay

This is nice if you want both a credit and debit card on the iPhone, or if you have multiple rewards cards you use for various purchases at different stores. It’s also nice just to have a backup card on Apple Pay, in the odd event the first one fails for some reason or another.

Adding new cards to Apple Pay is really easy on iPhone, this tutorial will walk through the process. You can add cards manually, or, as we’ll emphasize here, by using the iPhones camera to expedite the process.

Mail app icon

The Mail app for Mac has a built in junk filter which attempts to identify and isolate spam mail from the rest of your emails. For the most part, the Mail Junk filter is pretty good on the Mac, but sometimes it’s a little too good, and some users may find that Mail on the Mac is erroneously flagging legitimate emails as junk (or spam).

Change a user full name on Mac OS

How to Disable True Tone on iPhone Displays

Oct 25, 2017 - 1 Comment

True Tone  on iPhone can be turned off or on

Chances are if you have an iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8, or iPhone X, you’ll likely want to keep the True Tone feature enabled, but some users may want to disable True Tone on their iPhone screen.
