Apple Puts Together the 16 Best iOS Apps With “Dark Mode”

https://www.gsmarena.com/apple_ios_10_may_finally_allow_the_long_awaited_dark_mode-blog-18873.php

 

Apple’s release of iOS 11 has been nothing less than successful. With the release of their new update, Apple has also launched several apps that compliment the new update’s feature. Ever since the release of these apps, there has been an influx in Apple’s app downloads. The soar in app downloads is according to app analytics firm Sensor Tower. Since Apple has created ways to feature apps, more and more Apple users are downloading them.

Apple’s “daily stories,” is in reference to a single app, which includes its daily games and apps.  These apps include becoming a better cook and entertaining kids. By having apps that reach multiple audiences, Apple has increased its amount of downloads.

In more recent news, Apple’s App Store editors made  a daily list called “Does this App Come in Black?”, which highlights the 16 iOS apps which offer a “pure black mode.” This “pure black mode” helps create darker features for the iPhone.

Darker themes are known as being easier to look at. Instead of staring at a bright white background, the darker features are easier on the eyes. This is especially helpful at night or when you are looking at your iPhone in dimmed lighting.

Apple also includes a pure-black mode that serves as an excellent way to take advantage of the gorgeous OLED screen on the iPhone X. This screen has the ability to display far greater contrast than the LCD displays on previous iPhones. The colors appear as being more vibrant, whereas blacks and dark colors appear as being much deeper. If you own the new and latest update for the iPhone, you should try these darker features. They are becoming more and more popular worldwide so make sure you get in on in the action ! For more information on this topic, click here.

https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2018/07/apple-supports-malala-fund-expansion-in-latin-america/

Apple launches a collaboration between its 10 Apple Developer Academies in Brazil and Malala Fund to help progress girls’ education opportunities. The Malala Fund in Latin America is working to provide safe, quality secondary education and opportunities for girls. It will also offer grants to local advocates in Brazil. The advocates at Apple will join Malala Fund’s network of Gulmakai champions and implement projects all over the country. These projects  will feature a design to empower girls, inspire teachers and policymakers to develop their skills through programs, and positively affect school enrollment efforts and advocacy for education.

Malala Fund’s Network

Malala Fund’s network will be challenging the creativity and innovative minds of Apple Developer Academy students and Brazilian alumni. It will also give them the chance to collaborate with Malala Fund to develop and design apps that enhance the education opportunities for girls. This challenge will motivate the students to find ways to better enable Malala Fund’s network of Gulmakai champions around the world.  It will also help Malala to communicate and share best practices in a secure environment.

The Apple Developer Academy’s developers in Rio met Malala Yousafzai on Friday. They spoke with her when she was there to visit the students. She was there to discuss how important the developers are to the fund’s mission to provide education opportunities to girls all over the world.

Apple became Malala Fund’s first Laurete partner in January. Apple did this by enabling the Malala Fund to increase the amount of grants awarded by its Gulmakai Network. They will also fund new programs in India and Latin America. This is with the goal in mind of enhancing the opportunities for secondary education for over 100,000 girls.

Dating back to 2013, more than 3,000 students have gone through this experience at Brazil’s Apple Developer Academy program.  Moreover, there are 500 other students that are currently enrolled in 10 sites. The sites are all across Brasilia, Campinas, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Manaus, Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, and Sao Paulo. The scholarship winners include the seventy-five Brazilian students who were present at the Worldwide Developer Conference. For more information on Apple’s support of Malala’s fund, click here.

As reported by Engadget, Rainbow – The Film gives the artist a creative space to explain her struggles. It also highlights the people who stood by her through the rough experiences in her life.

Kesha’s Input

Kesha comments on her experience saying,

“Making Rainbow the album was such a therapeutic process. Being given the opportunity to turn it into a three dimensional piece of art has helped me find even deeper healing and catharsis,” Kesha said in a statement. “I hope this film inspires others to never give up even if you feel full of hurt or lost, because after the storm comes a rainbow. Depression, anxiety and mental illness are things we all need to talk about more, and there is no shame in asking for help. Making the decision to work on yourself is the bravest thing you can do. I hope this film helps bring light and love to everyone.”

Apple Music chose to include Kesha’s documentary because they are trying to expand their following.  From documentaries with Major Lazer and Pink, to exclusive live concerts from Taylor Swift, the streaming service has the desire of using its leverage to give artists a platform that will reach a wide-range of audiences. Apple wants to give artists a voice and Apple Music is the perfect way to do so. People will be able to use Apple Music to listen to an artist’s album and have access to exclusive documentaries. They will even have access to interviews of their artistic process. The film is set to release exclusively on Apple Music on August 10 so be ready and be one of the first to learn more about Kesha!

Apple Teams Up With Malala Fund in Latin America

Apple launched a new collaboration between its ten Apple Developer Academies in Brazil and Malala Fund to advance girls’ education opportunities. Malala Fund, as part of its new expansion into Latin America, works to provide safe, quality secondary education and opportunities for girls, and has recently offered grants to local advocates in Brazil.

It also helps students find better ways to enable the fund’s network of Gulmakai champions around the world in order to share the best practices in a secure, controlled environment.

The young developers met Malala Yousafzai when she visited the students in order to explain the role the developers will be playing in order to support the fund’s mission to prov

ide education opportunities to girls across the globe. In January, Apple became Malala Fund’s first Laureate partner, allowing the organization to double the number of grants awarded by its Gulmakai Network as well as fund new programs in Latin America and India, with the program reaching out to more than 100,000 girls.

“My hope is that every girl, from Rio to Riyadh, can be free to choose her own future,” said Malala Yousafzai. “Whether she wants to be a developer, a pilot, a dancer or a politician, education is the best path to a brighter future. By tapping into Apple’s network of student developers, Malala Fund will gain access to new tools to support our mission of free, safe, quality education. The students in Apple’s Developer Academy program share my passion for improving the world around us, and I am eager to see their innovative ideas to help girls in Brazil and across the globe.”

Why You Should Install The iOS 12 Update

Apple iPhone
https://www.macrumors.com

 

The iOS 12 Update is said to help improve and speed up the way your smartphone operates.  This is why Apple users are saying that the iOS 12 update is one of the best software updates that Apple has had in years!

Getting The Beta Installed Is Made Simple: 

The steps of setting up the software are simple. The first step involves backing up your phone or tablet to ensure that all of your previous data remains protected. Protecting the data you had while using iOS 11 requires a full wipe and restoration of your Apple product. This process requires the following steps:

  1. Go to the Apple beta site on your iPhone or iPad, then sign in with your Apple ID.
  2. Download the beta settings profile and use your pin code to install it .
  3. Make sure you are connected to wifi.
  4. Look for updates in the settings app under General > Software Update.
  5. Download and then install the iOS 12 Public beta system.

Once you install the software, iOS 12 will make an automatic update as the new beta versions get released. Since older versions are no longer supported, this step is crucial to protecting your Apple device from any bugs.

The iOS 12 beta also includes new Screen Time tools, which is what makes the software update so great! This is used for monitoring how many times you use apps, how often you pick up or put down your phone, and other information that may be useful. This will also give you the ability to set app and device time limits for your children’s iPhones or iPads through the parental controls. Other exciting features consist of Apple’s new personalized Memoji. Memoji stacks notifications within the app so it is easier to process. This allows for speed improvement even for older iPhones.

If you want an iPhone that will guarantee you faster service, then update to iOS 12! For more information, click here.

These are said to launch alongside the new style of AirPods and Apple Watch. They will all launch in 2019 as a way of giving consumers a wide range of options. If an  Apple user is not interested in the new Apple Watch, they will still have the opportunity to purchase a new product such as the AirPower or the new version of AirPods. Apple is uncertain when the products will be ready for release, but they are sure that three new Apple audio products are on the horizon.

A new report from Bloomberg suggests that Apple will release a new version of their popular AirPods that are noise canceling and water resistant. This, however, will make them cost more than Apple’s current AirPods. Their second product consists of Apple over-ear wireless headphones. They will be similar to the Beats Solo3. According to Bloomberg, Apple is said to release a new style of their HomePod speaker. The report does not offer further details, but these three audio products are said to be high-end versions of existing products.

These high-end versions could potentially be very popular. They can be popular because consumers are always looking for the next best thing!

What To Do When You Lose Your AirPods

Most  people lose their earphones every now and then. So if Apple’s AirPods are smaller than regular earphones, why are they easier to find?  They are easier to look for because you can use the Find My IPhone app. Once you turn the app on, you will find your AirPods in no time! 

What If My AirPods Are Out Of Range, Not Charged, Or In A Case?

If you lose your AirPods, you can simply sign into iCloud.com or use Find My IPhone to locate them. If they are not close to your other Apple devices, need to be charged, or are in a case, don’t fret! Apple has made it possible to still locate them under those conditions. Once you sign in to iCloud.com or Find My IPhone, you can see your AirPods on a map even if they are not connected at the time. You can see where they are located if they are connected and also where you had them the last time they were connected. Either way, don’t lose hope. Apple has thought of all of the ways to help you track down your AirPods.

Putting AirPods in Case

Besides looking at them on iCloud or Find My IPhone, you can also play a sound. If your AirPods are connected to Bluetooth, then you can play a sound to help you locate them. The sound volume increases for two minutes or until you say “Stop.” You can play the sound on any other Apple device and it will help you find them.

What Happens If My AirPods Are Offline?

Are your AirPods offline? Did you forget to turn on Find My IPhone before you lost them? If so, then you must  wait to see if they come back online. Once they are online, the other Apple devices you use them with will give you a notification. However, there is nothing you can do until they get back online.

If your AirPods seem to not be coming back online, then you can contact Apple Support for a replacement. Apple Support will tell you more about the options you have for replacing them with new ones.

Although AirPods are smaller than regular earphones, they can be difficult to lose permanently . If you lost your AirPods, follow this advice and find them as soon as possible. If you didn’t lose them but are scared you will someday, take action. Turn on Find My IPhone for your AirPods and avoid future stress! For more information, click here

New Designs For Apple’s IPhone X Plus

 

IPhone X Phone
https://www.apple.com

 

According to Forbes magazine, Apple is launching designs for two new creative and cost-effective IPhones. These IPhones will be two types of IPhone X’s . These new IPhone X designs consist of the IPhone X Plus and the ‘Budget’ IPhone, which will satisfy many Apple users.

The IPhone X Plus

The IPhone X Plus will have a triple rear camera that Apple users are going to be exceptionally pleased with. Although it is uncertain what the triple rear camera will look like, one can assume that Apple will copy Huawei’s use of a monochromatic camera. The monochromatic camera will assist modules that are known for being primary and telephoto. This will create the kind of low light photography that Apple has been struggling to make popular for the past few years.

The IPhone X Plus will have a 6.5 inch display but will still be smaller than the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus: 157.2 x 77.1 mm (6.18 x 3.03-inches) compared to 158.4 x 78.1 mm (6.24 x 3.07-inches). However, due to its steel framework,  it will potentially weigh more than the aluminum-based 202g  iPhone 8 Plus,

The New ‘Budget’ IPhone X

The ‘Budget’ IPhone X will measure 147.12 x 71.52 mm (5.79 x 2.81-inches). This new IPhone style is longer and wider than the current 5.8-inch iPhone: 143.6 x 70.9 mm (5.65 x 2.79-inch). The IPhone is more affordable because of its single rear camera. Its budget pricing is also seen in its loss of a 3D touch. However, the economical IPhone X will most likely have a Face ID technology. This gives the new phone a bonus feature at a low cost.

These two designs are two of the most innovative and affordable IPhones that Apple has created in years. There is a possibility that Apple might make changes to its designs. However, these models of the IPhone X and the ‘Budget’ IPhone X have high chances of being successful on the market.
