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.

Apple Music is going to release a documentary that will feature the popular artist, Kesha. The documentary mainly focuses on how Kesha creates her last album, Rainbow, and includes new footage of Kesha performances.

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!

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.

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
