The 10 best lifestyle iPhone apps of all time
Apple CEO Tim Cook finally picks his right-hand man.
The iPhone maker on Thursday announced new changes and additions to its operating and organizational structure, including a new COO — a position that had been empty since Cook, the previous COO, became chief executive just before the death of founder Steve Jobs from cancer. It seems Apple is continuing to use the App Store’s “Top Charts” section to promote its own applications, by allowing apps like iMovie and those from its iWork suite to appear in the Top 10 Free apps on users’ iPhones. In a press release, Apple said that Jeff Williams has been named chief operating officer and Johny Srouji has been moved up to the executive team as senior vice president for Hardware Technologies.
I’ve tested around 3,000 apps in the last 12 months, including apps in new categories like video webcasting and Apple Watch apps, and I’ve seen a surge in short-term vacation rental apps, plus increasingly minimalist graphics across all categories. Jeff Williams joined Apple 17 years ago, following a career path that was eerily similar to Cook’s: “Both Williams and Cook earned an MBA from Duke, spent time working at IBM, and joined Apple in 1998,” noted Above Avalon commentator Neil Cybart.

The “self-healing” part of the phone works in conjunction with waterproofing the iPhone, so it’s not like we’re going to see the same type of material used on the “self-healing” LG Flex back in 2014. Has Apple effectively turned its App Store’s Top Charts section into a way to market its own software – stealing the top ranks from deserving developers in the process? Right now, if you’re considering an Android smartphone, you have two options: a small-sized handset that doesn’t perform very well, or a large-sized handset with all the bells and whistles. This simple two-dimensional infinite scrolling game puts you in control of a character skiing down an endless, never-repeating mountain while collecting runaway llamas, sliding along rooftops, somersaulting over chasms and, when you progress far enough, soaring like a bird above the snow. Regardless of the answer, the apps’ seemingly magical appearance then disappearance from the Top Charts over the course of a day calls into question the legitimacy and accuracy of Apple’s rankings system altogether.
Operations and supply-chain management are a big part of what has made Apple into the world’s largest company and those areas are crucial for the company’s continued success. Seriously, it’s ridiculously difficult to get a small Android smartphone that will give you a great camera, excellent battery life, lag-free performance, and a vibrant high-def screen. The “self-healing” stuff comes from a patent—which is far from being anything certain for next year’s iPhone, let alone any other iPhones down the road.
A new feature, ‘3D Touch’, lets you press harder on a screen to see a shortcut menu pop up for certain apps such as Instagram, Photos, Camera or Mail. Jeff is hands-down the best operations executive I’ve ever worked with, and Johny’s team delivers world-class silicon designs which enable new innovations in our products year after year.” Apple also said Tor Myhren will join the company in the first quarter of 2016 as vice president of Marketing and Communication, reporting to CEO Tim Cook.
The phone that many were referring to became the OnePlus X, but you can see that it has OnePlus One heritage all over it, especially since both have the same exact processor. So this rumored smartphone with a Snapdragon 810 and 4.6-inch screen (even smaller than an iPhone 6s) is definitely possible, I just don’t think we’ll see this guy anytime soon.
This bit of hearsay got a little bit of traction this week: Like the iPad Pro, the rumored iPad Air 3 may not get 3D Touch, the touch-sensitive tech currently found in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus that basically unlocks touch-sensitive functions in apps and the home screen. If any tablet could make use of 3D Touch it would be the iPad Mini, but the increased surface area on the Air and the Pro would turn 3D Touch from a semi-useful shortcut, to kind of a nuisance.
The iPhone 5s rocks Apple’s A7 chip, which is not only powerful enough for most regular uses but also supports a wider variety of apps than what you’ll find on the iPhone 5. Who knows.) Another firm, appFigures, pulled today’s ranking data for the iWork apps and found that neither Pages, Numbers or Keynote were ranking for anything other than the “Productivity” category on iPhone.
The current thinking is that Apple is going to buy GoPro because “stocks.” The mere rumor that Apple was sniffing around GoPro sent the prices soaring, but aside from that, GoPro’s been trending downward in value and Apple’s never been much of a bargain bin buyer. There’s also the added fact that literally neither company has given any hint, leak or otherwise, that this is happening and it’s all pure speculation. Originally designed around a vertical video format to match how you naturally hold a smartphone, Periscope is effectively a social network for watching and sharing short live videos.
Its 1080p HD recording and 140-degree angle of shooting is complimented by a motion sensor that is activated whenever it detects movement close to the car when it is parked. No one knows exactly how Apple’s algorithm works, other than it takes into account some combination of downloads and velocity – or for Top Grossing applications, revenue.
The biggest bottleneck you’ll find is in the RAM, which can prove to be insufficient if you’re a power user, especially while browsing several tabs or if you are doing something while having multiple Facebook Messenger conversations (that app really eats up your available resources!). You may find yourself accidentally pressing “record” — though you do get a warning before you go “live,” to save you from potentially embarrassing moments.
It’s also worth pointing out that the apps in question are odd in and of themselves because they are listed as paid applications, but are actually available for free to most users. Coming off the success of the 6P, it wouldn’t be too crazy to think that Google would tap Huawei to make their next tablet seeing as companies like Samsung and HTC have made Nexus phones and Nexus tablets before. Apple announced some time ago that iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, Keynote and iTunes U would be free for those who activated or purchased a device on or after September 1, 2013 running iOS 8.
Apple has now decided that 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch are the two new device sizes they want to support, so third-party accessory makers will concentrate on making cases, speaker docks, and other devices for those sizes; not on the now-defunct 4-inch size. Though the app’s clear interface may remind you of the kind of simple image adjustments and filters you can achieve in other apps like Instagram, Enlight lets you apply complicated effects like adjusting the image color curves, fixing errors and reducing noise. Apple won’t explain how its algorithm works, of course, but when Apple’s own software appears one day at the very top of the App Store then disappears entirely the next day, you know that something that not entirely above-the-board is going on.
