Got an Apple, Mac, or iOS tech question? We've got the answer. In this week's Ask, we'll show you how to further customize your Mac's desktop background by modifing the contents of the Desktop Pictures folder.
We’re kicking off the merry month of December with another edition of the New App Recap! Our latest collection can be used to unlock your Mac with an iOS device, share pics of iPhone home screens, get free photo effects, collaborate with members of your household, and gain quick access to a doctor. The weather outside may be frightful, but this week’s apps are delightful!
Apple's Photo Library for iCloud has so far relied on syncing with photos and videos taken with iDevices, but that may change soon. The beta for iCloud.com now allows users to upload photos they've taken with devices other than their Apple products to the cloud, which immediately makes the service a more attractive method of storing photos.
November is here and that means holiday deals are right around the corner — but you won't have to wait until Thanksgiving to start racking up the savings, because our first New App Recap of the month is almost entirely made up of free apps that will allow readers to buy tacos, keep tabs on their health and finances, message friends, drive safer, sticker photos, and keep up with the news. Don't delay, dive into the newest apps and start downloading!
This week's edition of the New App Recap is almost literally an explosion of sight and sound! We've got an Apple Pay-enabled update for smart bulbs, Flickr landing on the iPad, a whole bunch of ways to create music while on the go, and even a couple apps for anonymously expressing yourself or getting the word out on your personal blog. Sit back and join us on this groovy trip through the world of new and updated apps!
If you happen to be reading MacLife.com this morning from your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, we hope you are being careful not to bend your new smartphone by placing it in your pocket. But Wednesday's Morning Report has other things on its mind, including rumors of a new Photos web app, the latest versions of Adobe Elements, and a new Apple print ad you won't have to worry about bending.
Cross-processing was originally a technique used in traditional dingy darkrooms, and involved developing print film using chemicals designed for use with slide film or vice versa. The results of the technique could sometimes be a bit hit-and-miss, but when it worked, boy, it really worked. Now you can get the same results using Adobe Photoshop Elements, which gives you the ability to tweak individual color channels to replicate almost any cross-processing chemical combination you might desire — without the mess!
The essentially spotless reputation of Apple's widely used iCloud service was dealt a serious blow this weekend when word emerged that several celebrities discovered that private photos of themselves had made their way onto the Internet at large. Word emerged yesterday via NBC News that Apple is working closely with the FBI to investigate the leaks, but this morning the Cupertino company claimed the leaks weren't really iCloud's fault. Instead, it was the fault of weak passwords.
This week's New App Recap has a clear focus on reinvention, as several apps in our lineup have been rebooted, refreshed, or otherwise reinvented with new versions that offer a fresh new look and feel. But don't change that dial, because we've also got a few new discoveries as well — so without further ado, let's dive in!
