Black Friday Steal: These $100 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Are Under $30

Mac World - Fri, 2018-11-23 10:30

There’s just one problem; at $160, the AirPods are quite pricey, which is why competitors are coming to market with affordable alternatives. If you’re looking for an attractive, Apple-inspired pair of Bluetooth earbuds, but don’t want to shell out $160, the AirTaps Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds might be for you, and you can grab a pair for as low as $29.60.

Apple’s Black Friday sale lasts four times longer than last year, but so far it’s just as lame

Mac World - Fri, 2018-11-23 08:53

When Apple teased us with a four-day shopping event for Black Friday this year, we were intrigued. Not only does Apple historically treat Black Friday as a single-day affair, ignoring the rest of the weekend and Cyber Monday, it also doesn’t offer much in the way of any real savings on its newest products. So we were hopeful that things might be different this year.

But unless Apple plans on surprising us with new sales each day—and we have no reason to believe it will—the current offerings are just as unimpressive as they were last year. Instead of actual savings, your “discount” comes in the form of an Apple Store gift card (so you have to buy more stuff), and Apple has once again excluded any of the new products people want. (At first glance it looks like the new iPads are part of the sale, since Apple has adorned the old models with the new Pro wallpaper, but sadly that’s not the case.) Here's everything Apple is includingRemove non-product link as part of the sale:

Black Friday Special: Get This Wireless Charging Smartphone Gimbal For Just $76

Mac World - Fri, 2018-11-23 08:37

Not too long ago, we had to buy pricey video equipment to capture our favorite moments in high definition. Current smartphone cameras blow those antiques out of the water, but one advantage videographers had over smartphones were self-adjusting gimbals to stabilize camera movement. Thankfully, motorized smartphone gimbals such as the MOZA Mini-MI have come to market, allowing you to film stable, theatrical shots from your smartphone for $75.99.

What method should you use to make sure your iOS photos are backed up?

Mac World - Fri, 2018-11-23 08:00

With iOS backups, it’s still a little confusing about what happens to photos taken on an iOS device. When you perform a backup (automatic or otherwise), do your photos and videos get copied too? It varies!

  • Do you have iCloud Photos enabled?
  • Do you back up via iCloud or via iTunes to a computer?

From answers to those questions, you can figure out whether your backup contains your images and movies, and if not, how to make settings changes to fix that.

iCloud Photos enabled: If your iOS device has this turned on, then neither iTunes nor iCloud makes backups of images or video. The photo/video backup is instead entirely handled as part of the iCloud sync. (Also note that Apple recently changed the name from iCloud Photo Library, if you’re used to seeing that anem.) iCloud Photos retains the full, high-resolution versions of all your photo and videos.

The iPad, HomePod, and Apple TV need multi-user support. Here’s why

Mac World - Fri, 2018-11-23 07:00

In Apple’s ideal world, we’d all have our collections of our own personal devices—preferably Apple-branded. We’d never leave the house without our iPhone or our Apple Watch (or probably both); we’d sit down on the couch, browsing the web on our own iPads while binging the latest hot new show on our personal Apple TV. And for anything that might require it, we retreat to our personal MacBooks or iMacs.

For some of us, this dream might be a reality. For others it sounds like a bit of a nightmare. After all, many of us live in households with more than one person. How many Apple TVs or iPads do we need, really? Yes, an iPhone or an Apple Watch is certainly a personal device, but why does that need to be the standard across the board?

Amazon has slashed Black Friday prices on iPads to lows we've never seen before

Mac World - Thu, 2018-11-22 09:38

Well, we didn't expect this. Amazon is selling Apple products just in time for Black Friday and to mark the occasion, it's slashed prices on iPads to some of the best prices we've ever seen. Unfortunately, you'll still need to pay full price if you want to buy one of the newest iPads Pro, but if you don't need that kind of power, one of these iPads will surely fit the bill:

The sixth-generation 9.7-inch iPad with 32GB of storage is down to $249Remove non-product link, $80 off the $329 list price and a 24 percent discount. We've seen this model for as low as $279 before, so this represents an all-time low. If you want to upgrade to 128GB of storage, you'll still save, but not as much: the discount on that model is $30, bringing the price to $399Remove non-product link. This iPad supports the 1st-generation Apple PencilRemove non-product link for writing and drawing.
