China’s ‘fake’ Apple stores thrive ahead of new iPhone launch

24 Sep 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Apple releases iOS 9.0.1 update.

Many millions of older iPhones and iPads are also getting an upgrade, as the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 9, is now available. The new Live Photos feature is something out of Harry Potter, bringing your stills to life by recording a few seconds of video before and after each snap.

And the cameras were significantly upgraded to allow you to shoot video in 4K, with a huge megapixel capacity that makes the phone a more than capable point-and-shoot camera. If you rather wait until Apple releases a major update—iOS 9.1—you might have to wait a little while longer. iOS 9.1 was seeded to developers on September 9 and has features for the upcoming iPad Pro, which is slated for release in November.

But on the TV you see a “spectator view,” which offers a different perspective on the gaming arena, allowing observers to say helpful things like “It’s behind you!” A $3 app, Duet Game, shows another feature of iOS 9. These act when you surf the web, blocking the kind of behind-the-scenes code that websites use to track your online movements to serve you advertisements. By using the app you can turn off advertisements and ad trackers, and also prevent websites from using external fonts and images (which have to be downloaded and can slow your browser).

The app is a virtual reality guide to the stars: You hold your phone up to the sky and the app calculates what you can see overhead, then displays it with interactive graphics on the screen. On compatible iPads, Night Sky supports the device’s new multitasking feature, so you could use Night Sky in one window and do a search for more information on, say, Jupiter, in the other window. It also connects to Apple’s new Spotlight search system, so you can search for stars, constellations and so on from outside the app, and then activate the app when you find something you like. It offers powerful features like the ability to explore the sky view on your wrist, and it gets alerts when the International Space Station is going to fly over.

The news app Flipboard is a great way to keep on top of what’s happening in the world because it aggregates all the news you know you are interested in from multiple sources. And don’t forget Microsoft Office apps, which you may be surprised to hear are rather good on iOS 9, supporting all the multitasking you can do on iPads, including the coming iPad Pro.
