This tweak keeps music from resuming after hanging up a call on your iPhone

Anyone who uses their iPhone to pick up calls, whether they’re phone calls or FaceTime calls, knows that when music is playing, iOS will automatically pause the music until the phone call ends. When it does, iOS will resume the song where it left off. Those who don’t like how the music resumes after a […]


How to stop your iPad and other devices from ringing when you get a call on your iPhone

If you own more than one Apple device, be it an iPhone, an iPad, an iPod touch, or a Mac, you might have encountered this situation where a call on your iPhone rings simultaneously on your other devices. This is part of a feature called Continuity, and in most cases, it’s really helpful. But if […]


9.7? iPad Pro certainly doesn’t skimp on camera tech, but is this a new normal for iPads?

Apple’s best mobile cameras go into iPhones, not iPads, though a curious thing happened at today’s unveiling of a smaller 9.7-inch iPad Pro—both it and the iPhone 6s share a powerful Apple-designed camera subsystem which takes sharp snaps in twelve megapixels and shoots video in 4K. Even more curiously, the bigger 12.9-inch iPad Pro remains stuck with a previous-generation...


Apple said no to real time iMessage wiretapping for the government

iPhone Encryption iMessage FaceTime Wiretapping

Apple has refused a request from the Department of Justice for real-time iMessage wiretapping, a new report says, apparently suggesting that Apple could do it if it wanted to. A recent security report claimed that while iMessage (or FaceTime) doesn’t have a backdoor for the government, the end-to-end encrypted service is built in such a way that Apple could, if it wanted to, offer real-time access to messages and chats to a third-party – namely a spy agency working with a warrant – belonging to a suspect.

Claimed iPhone 6s parts show larger FaceTime camera, Force Touch


Some new photos surfaced this weekend, showing what is said to be the front face of an iPhone 6s. 9to5Mac shares the high resolution images of the claimed component, which appears to offer up insight into two of the unannounced handset’s new features.

The first is a higher resolution FaceTime camera. We’ve been hearing rumors for a while now that the iPhone 6s will feature an improved front-facing camera for taking better selfies, and if legitimate, this part confirms it with a larger FaceTime camera sensor.... Read the rest of this post here

The next Apple Watch reportedly has a video chat camera

Apple Watch Sport checking out apps

The first Apple Watch might have only just reached stores, but that isn't stopping rumors about Cupertino's next wearable. Sources for 9to5Mac claim that Apple already has some big plans for its second-generation Watch, and the highlight would be a front camera for video calls -- yes, you'd get to live out your Inspector Gadget dreams and have a face-to-face chat from your wrist. There's a chance this feature could get cut if there's either a change in the roadmap or logistical problems, but it's currently on the cards for a "likely" 2016 debut.

Two step verification for iMessage and FaceTime

iMessage Two Step

For a while now Apple has had the option of two step security as an additional level of protection for your personal details. Then, last year after those nudes where leaked, they enabled it on iCloud. Logging into iCloud.com, even in a browser, would trigger the verification process and if you didn’t have a device available that was already registered you wouldn’t be getting in. Now, they’ve taken your protection a step further and introduced it to the iMessage and FaceTime services. Some could see this as being a little over protective but, when you consider that people do send those dirty flirt pics, passwords and secure information alike via message; this could only be a good thing.

Tell us your thoughts, do you feel that the added protection is needed for such services?

  • Apple made it harder for hackers to breach FaceTime and iMessage

    As a means to further secure your digital life, Apple said today that it's adding two-step verification to FaceTime and iMessage. That still leaves the likes of iTunes and the Apple website vulnerable to ne'er-do-wells who want to remotely access your sensitive info (and have your password), of course, but now Cupertino's universal messaging and video chat programs are locked down a bit further. Given the progress that's been made toward adding the second authorization step to the rest of its ecosystem in recent months, it likely won't be too long before those spots are buttoned up too. Any questions? The Apple two-step verification FAQ is only a click away.

    Apple enables two-step verification for FaceTime and iMessages

    iMessage iOS 7

    Apple has enabled two-step verification for its FaceTime and iMessage services, The Guardian reported on Thursday. The move will force users who have the authentication system enabled to input an app-specific password when logging into either of the two services.

    For those unfamiliar with the term, two-step verification is an opt-in system that adds an additional layer of security to Apple ID accounts. It requires users to input authentication codes when logging into iCloud on new devices, the web, and now iMessage and FaceTime.... Read the rest of this post here
