iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, and watchOS 2 Coverage at TidBITS

Today was a busy day: Apple introduced the iPad Pro, a new Apple TV, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and announced release dates for iOS 9 and watchOS 2 for the Apple Watch (both September 16), and for OS X El Capitan (September 30). You can watch the keynote video here. I followed ...

How to Remove Duplicate Events on Apple Watch

Yesterday my Apple Watch started showing duplicate events in the Calendar app and on the watch face (when events overlap, an exclamation point icon appears before the next event on the face). I’m not sure what spurred the issue, but for some reason this week my iPhone stopped updating iCloud information until I re-entered my ...

Essential tips, tricks for living with an Apple Watch

I’ve now had my Apple Watch for two months (here’s my review for the Seattle Times), and in that time I’ve gotten to know it very well while updating my Apple Watch: A Take Control Crash Course book (which is available now!).

Article: Sharing Lightroom mobile Photos in iOS Apps

My latest article for Lynda.com (yep, the same company that announced this morning it’s being bought by LinkedIn) came about when I made a surprising discovery.

I Chat with Chuck Joiner about the Apple Watch and My New Book

Following my appearance last week on Chuck Joiner’s podcast, he invited me back to talk specifically about the Apple Watch (have you heard of it yet?) and my brand-new book Apple Watch: A Take Control Crash Course. We had a great conversation that went beyond just what the watch is good for and whether it ...

A Golden Day for Apple

Today’s Apple media event wasn’t specifically about gold, but you couldn’t escape it. From the $10,000+ gold Apple Watch Edition to the new gold-colored, redesigned MacBook, Apple made a point of demonstrating just why these products should command your interest and your money. Read the article I wrote about the event for Lynda.com here: Apple ...

Apple Ad about iPad Filmmaking Shot Using an iPad Air 2

Apple introduced a new commercial during the Oscars that touts the iPad as a video capture and editing platform. A voiceover by Martin Scorcese talks about being creative in a practical, this-is-work way. I never like the inspirational value of that phrase. Dreaming is a way of trivializing the process, the obsession that carries you ...

Lightroom mobile 1.3 Adds an Unexpected Editing Capability

While everyone was focused on the news of the new Photos for OS X developer preview, Adobe released a very interesting update to Lightroom mobile, its mobile companion to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. In previous versions of the app, there was a truly hidden, super powerful editing feature: not only could you copy adjustments made on ...
