I know that I can update my personal iOS Memoji in the Messages app, but how do I update it across iOS and Mac too? My Mac is still displaying my old one!

manually tag a location

If you shoot with a camera that doesn’t support geotagging, then you can manually assign the photograph’s location so that it will appear in Photo’s Map view. This enables you to add more photos to a specific location even if they weren’t shot on your iPhone. In this example, we’ll demonstrate how to geotag a photo that was captured using a DSLR camera so that it appears in the same map location as our iPhone-sourced snaps. 1 Search for location View a photo at full-size and click the ‘i’ button to open the Info panel. Go to ‘Assign a Location’ and type in the name of the location where the photo was captured. 2 Fine-tune location Hit return to choose a location and then zoom in for a closer look at the map’s pin.…

APPLE’S SEPTEMBER EVENT SAW THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF TWO NEW iPADS AND APPLE WATCHES. The big announcement was an exciting new iPad Air that brings some of the features of the iPad Pro line to the Air for the first time, particularly in the look and feel department, as it now has the ‘narrow border’ design you associate with the Pro range, and a Liquid Retina display which (in the same footprint as the previous iPad Air) features a large 10.9-inch display with 3.8 million pixels. As with the iPad Pro models, the Home button is gone completely, but since there’s no Face ID in the iPad Air, Apple has cleverly integrated Touch ID into the top button instead. On the inside, a brand-new A14 Bionic chip with five-nanometer processor technology pushes the…
