the best upgrade ever?

There’s one thing we all have in common when we use our devices at home — whether it’s an iMac, MacBook, iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, we need good quality access to the internet without fail. No matter how you work or play, at some point during the day you will need to use it. To me, this makes your network a vital facet of every Apple user’s home. If it’s good, then you’re going to have a great experience, being able to use your devices easily and make the most of what they’re capable of. If it’s bad, then you’re going to find you can’t actually get what you need from your Apple gear. So, our 14–page guide to improving your home network on page 16 is an essential read…

game on!

The Steam Link app is now available in the App Store. It expands your gaming options by making it possible to play Steam games on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV by streaming them from a computer on the same network. The app is free, and you don’t have to pay any download or service charges. The app supports the Steam Controller over Bluetooth, as well as other popular Bluetooth controllers, mice, and keyboards. In theory, any MFi (Made For iPhone/iPad) controller should work. Your game runs in Steam on the host computer, which communicates with the client device running the app using “a custom low–latency network protocol”. There are some 23,000 games on the Steam platform, the vast majority for PC. The app arrives almost exactly a year after Apple rejected…

new apple tv app arrives

AS PROMISED IN Apple’s March special event, the all–new Apple TV app is available on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and even AirPlay 2 enabled Samsung smart TVs. It brings together all the ways you can watch TV and video content into one app, which is installed as part of the free iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 updates. As well as sections for TV shows and movies, there’s a new Kids section, while the Sports section makes it easy to find games and receive notifications. Movies and shows you’ve bought from iTunes are in a redesigned Library tab, and in the Up Next section you can find favorites or resume watching on a synced device. With the new Channels feature, you can now subscribe to paid services within the Apple TV app, paying…

what the heck?

IT’S COMMON TO see execs from other Silicon Valley companies take the stage to unveil their wares during Apple’s public events. Much rarer is seeing Apple participate in other companies’ shows, let alone use their stages to make announcements. But that’s what happened at the payment industry’s Transact conference in May, a month before WWDC. Jennifer Bailey, the VP responsible for Apple Pay, revealed support for NFC tags that would enable contactless payments in new scenarios such as car parking and “micro-mobility” (otherwise known as scooter rental). Depending on where you live, this may not sound new. Many of us are already so used to tapping our iPhone or Apple Watch to pay for items that we can get caught out if a vendor doesn’t accept it. In Chicago, the transit…

the shift

WHEN THE QUESTION of whether Apple is still as innovative as it’s been in the past comes up, I’m happy to point to the Watch as a positive answer. It’s no surprise there are diminishing returns for notebooks and phones after a certain amount of time, but features such as fall detection — along with the ECG function and a few other things that could help it save your life — show there’s tons of clever new ideas powered by technology. You just have to think of innovation in terms outside of traditional computing. Apple’s also found its rhythm for the Watch as a fashionable physical item, despite largely dropping the fashion focus. The high–end yellow gold original raised more eyebrows than a space anomaly encountered by a starship crewed by…
