use facial recognition from your photos library with homekit secure video

Apple prefers that your private data stay on your devices. That philosophy has prevented and delayed a number of product features that some of Apple’s competitors have rolled out earlier, but the trade-off is often worth it. A few months ago, Apple enhanced its HomeKit Secure Video integration with iOS/iPadOS 14’s Home app to let you tie in your Photos library’s People app, while giving nothing away to Apple – or providing a hole for others to snoop. That’s a lot of terms to unpack, however. HomeKit Secure Video is Apple’s iCloud-based home security camera storage and monitoring system. Apple doesn’t sell cameras, but this system works with about 10 cameras across several manufacturers. (I switched my existing Logitech Circle from Logitech’s system to Apple a few months ago.) It requires…

best beats headphones

Apple has finally launched its own over-ear headphones in the form of the AirPods Max (you can read our review in iPad & iPhone User 165), but Beats headphones remain a solid choice – especially for iPhone users. Although Beats headphones work with any Bluetooth device, many feature the great W1 and H1 chips also found in Apple AirPods, which make connecting with Apple devices easier than ever. It’s no longer the case that Beats headphones are only available to those with plenty of cash to splash either. The Beats Flex, for example, are available for under £50. But which Beats headphones are right for you? Over the following pages, our expert reviewers test them for audio quality, fit, design, value for money and features. 1.

iphone 13 rumours

It feels like the iPhone 12 only just landed, but we’re already looking ahead to the next one. While we’re not sure of the name – we’re calling it the iPhone 13 here but it might be the iPhone 12s – we’ve already heard a lot about what the next iPhone will bring. Stay tuned to this article as we’ll be updating with the newest and most credible reports as we hear them. Just remember, we won’t know for sure until Apple says so. 1TB STORAGE AND LIDAR EVERYWHERE If you’ve been frustrated by the iPhone’s limit on storage, a new rumour will make you happy: as noted by MacRumors, Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives, who analyses Apple’s Asian supply chain, claims the iPhone 13 will include an option to upgrade to 1TB…

scan documents in notes and third-party apps on the iphone and ipad

Relatively few people buy stand-alone scanners these days unless they work with printed documents, photos or photographic negatives, and most financial, medical and legal documents show up in digital form – but not all. That’s particularly true if you have kids in school and are tasked with endlessly filling out variations of the same form, by hand and often submitting as paper. Apple has built in a scanner into Notes for a few releases, which lets you capture pages or images as documents, and then edit them directly (via the embedded Markup tool) or export them as PDF to fill in forms or make other modifications. Based on reader email and online questions in forums, relatively few people seem aware of the power hidden away there. Like most iOS/ iPadOS apps, Apple’s…

new job post suggests apple is looking past 5g

The iPhone may be the top-selling smartphone with 5G, but a new job posting discovered by Bloomberg suggests that Apple is already looking ahead to the next generation of wireless networks. Apple has posted ads looking for “wireless system research engineers for current and next-generation networks” at its offices in California. According to the ad, candidates “will be at the centre of a cutting-edge research group responsible for creating next-generation disruptive radio access technologies over the next decade”. The job description states that hires “will have the unique and rewarding opportunity to craft next-generation wireless technology that will have a deep impact on future Apple products”, and specifically lists “next-generation 6G wireless communication systems” as a focus. With 5G only just beginning to roll out, 6G is likely a decade…

the apple car is further down the road than ever

Just when we thought the fabled Apple Car had driven off into the sunset, a flurry of recent rumours has given new life to the project. But despite some promising signs, we’re still likely many years away from driving one. The most recent rumour comes from well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors), who writes that Apple is collaborating with several automakers on the Apple Car project, including Hyundai, GM and Peugeot manufacturer PSA. According to Kuo, “Apple will leverage current automakers’ resources and focus on self-driving hardware and software, semiconductors, battery-related technologies, form factor and internal space designs, innovative user experience and the integration with Apple’s existing ecosystem.” Specifically, he says Apple will be using Hyundai’s E-GMP battery electric vehicle platform for the foundation of the Apple Car. This isn’t the first…
