Drag and Drop on iPad in iOS 11 Beta

 iOS 11 Beta

Drag & Drop in iOS 11


Apple has introduced various new features with iOS 11which will make the operating system of iPad look and feel like an old-fashioned desktop setting. The significant feature of iOS 11 on the iPad is the drag and drop facility which changes the whole iOS paradigm, integrating a decades-old desktop feature that tends to make it feel like a drag and drop had been waiting for touchscreens to come along.

It appears like all the apps of Apple have got a dose of drag and drop in iOS 11 inclusive of the Maps. The iOS 11 tends to add system-wide drag and drop providing the user with a quick and simple way of moving text, images together with files form one app to another. You could just tap and hold to pick up the content and then drag it to another app.

Multi-Touch, is a new method of selecting multiple items which enables you to pick up various items quickly by tapping. With the spring-loading, you could also copy to another app on dragging the content over the icon of the app in the Dock or on the Home screen. Drag and drop has the benefit of the power of Multi-Touch with the ability of moving content between apps which feels natural on iPad.

Incorporated through all iOS


Tap and hold on an image, a file or selected text and then drag it to where you need it to go. Moreover you could also drag contact, maps, reminders and much more. In the case of spring-loading, one can utilise drag and drop in order to open an app wherein you can move the content from one app to another by going over the icon. Then pick up the content needed to move and hold it over the icon of the app in the Dock or on the Home screen and the app tends to spring open.

Thereafter you can drop the content wherever you desire it to be placed. The iOS 11 has introduced a quick and easy means of selecting various items wherein one can drag one item and thereafter tap others to add to them.

Drag and drop has been incorporated all through iOS and can be utilised in the Home screen, Calendar, Dock Messages, Files, Safari, Contacts, Spotlight, iBooks, News, Notes, Photos, Maps, Keynote, Page and Numbers. By utilising a simple and powerful API one can implement drag and drop in their app.

Official Launch of iOS 11 – This Fall


The new system-wide drag and drop option tends to change the manner one utilises their iDevice. Rather than having to think ahead on what one intends to do, you could get on and do it. For example if one wants to send a location to someone while sending an email in iOS 10 and earlier, you could usually ditch the present email and go to the Maps apps, locate the area and then share it from there.

 In Maps a steady drag tends to move the map around like before and to drag a location one should pause a bit after tapping the screen before you tend to drag. While planning a trip you can now run the Maps and Notes app alongside probably with a Safari panel floating above and drag locations into the Notes app as you tend to locate them.

Utilising this feature is simple and you can use drag and drop in Maps. Though the beta tends to be yet a bit buggy, the best option to view Maps drag and drop so far is to open Notes in Split View and then tap and drag a location over to Notes and it is done.

On the iPad under iOS 11, one can start on email and work out other things later. By working in Split Screen one can drag location from Maps, URLs from Safari, images from Photos as well as documents from Files By official launch of iOS 11, this fall, and several more apps would be supporting drag and drop.

Apple – Has the Right Feel


Apple seems to have the right feel and it is quite natural that one scarcely notices the difference and one will find your iPad doing about almost everything that is needed to be done. Owing to this improved medium-long tap, one can bring up information on a location.

You could execute this medium-long tap on any feature one may desire in order to learn more and a little card tends to pop up with the additional information. Should the location be a regular area in a street, then one will have to mark it with a pushpin.

The drag and drop implementations in iOS11 is not just a new feature which has been placed over the prevailing iOS design but has been baked into each area of the operating system. For instance, if one tends to let their finger linger on a link in Safari, it transforms into a little draggable card with the URL and title printed on it ready to be dragged.

Apple's New iPad-Pro in the Test: Tablet Power in Large Format

Even if the iPhone is significantly more popular: Apple is struggling to keep its tablet attractive. The iPad Pro gets a bigger display and more computing power for the AR and VR in the latest version. Reason enough for an update? Macmyth tested it.

One would think one day, Apple would start the ideas of how the iPad could become even better. After all, the CPU has been running at a much faster pace than normal users actually need. The display is also convincing: no other touchscreen on the tablet market can be seen more sharply and more responsively. And the battery holds for days. Admittedly, the speakers are poor. But this is mainly due to physics - where there is a lack of volume because the iPad has become too slim, Apple engineers can not do anything about.

So much more amazing, however, that Apple has nevertheless succeeded in improving the iPad Pro in its latest version significantly. This starts with the display: so far, Apple and most buyers in the 9.7-inch screen of the predecessor model looked the perfect size for a tablet that was just 435 grams. Now the developers have accommodated more screen space in the same housing: With the new iPad Pro, the display measures 10.5 inches in the diagonal (about 26.7 centimeters), and who are looking for an even larger screen can go to the model with 12.9 inches diagonal (About 32.8 centimeters).

In addition, the already fast-paced processor with the A10X Fusion chip has, even more, computing power - not for Netflix, but for the age of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). This also benefits the touchscreen. Even the previous iPad Pro convinced with its rich contrast, bright and low-reflection screen. The new display is one more thing, doubling the refresh rate - the so-called refresh rate.

This may sound like developer gibberish, but it is important to understand that a refresh rate of 120 hertz means that the image is updated 120 times per second. And the more often the image is built, the fewer jerks are shown in fast movements.

The improvement of the hardware is also shown when working with the Apple Pencil. My (lousy) characters and the (hasty) writing of notes felt more natural because there was no disturbing delay. This is certainly due to the shorter response times of the display, but also to the ability of the iPad Pro to be one step ahead of its users: the handwriting of most people is in the same direction and short pauses in writing. Apple is trying to deduce how the next hand movement might look - and if necessary, to correct itself in the blink of an eye. This works remarkably well: For me, the writing with the Apple Pencil on the screen felt like on paper.

In terms of the display, the diagonal of 10.5 inches proves to be perfect for users and developers: the high resolution of 2224x1668 pixels ensures a sharp image impression and allows the iPad to adapt each app independently to the iPad-Pro display; Neither the developers have to intervene, nor is it due to conversions to faded images.

The 10.5 inch diagonal also means plenty of space for the embedded keyboard when the iPad is transversal and fills the bottom half of the screen. It comes almost from the size of a conventional laptop keyboard. For my taste, writing on a hardware keyboard like Apple's Smart Keyboard or similar keyboards from third-party vendors is still much more pleasant. It just feels strange to pan on the glass when the iPad is crosswise.

The fact that Apple has succeeded in accommodating a larger screen in the same housing is one of the least dramatic improvements for me. Clear: It looks good, and the increase in the display area is unmistakable. But we are not where we really want to go. Also, the new iPad Pro is just an intermediate step between past.

At least the increase in display size brings no disadvantages with it. The iPad Pro never confused my grasping hands with a deliberate finger tap, and it did not happen that my fingers suddenly caught sight of the view or were otherwise in the way. And that more screen size also means more fingerprints, which have to be wiped off from time to time, was clear anyway - every tablet after a few minutes is greasy. Since the iPad Pro is no exception.

At the Apple developer conference at the beginning of June, programmers had a nice surprise. With ARKit, it would be easy to develop augmented reality applications for iOS devices in the future. At the conference, Apple executives introduced a rousing AR game and built a scene for Star Wars - before all eyes on the stage. Almost everyone involved held iPads in their hands: A display that is so great is the perfect window into the world of Augmented Reality, explained to me later one of the Apple managers.

In the iPad Pro, the same camera module as in the iPhone 7 - but is not intended for best snapping.

That's why the iPad Pro now features the same camera module as in the iPhone 7 - but not so that you can stretch the tablet at the concert to take photos from the audience and take everyone's view. But to get a better view of the other side of the world with the camera and screen, through the iPad, which can enrich all recordings with information.

Sure, the software team lags a whole few months behind. The new iPad Pro - like all iPads - will be able to take full advantage of such advances with iOS 11. The update of the software is announced for the fall and promises abundant new features, including many, which so far has never been mentioned in the same breath with the iPad.

This includes a built-in file management (similar to the Finder on the Mac) and the ability to drag and drop files back and forth between apps, but also for data exchange between different apps. Also, the dock should grow, so more app icons fit in. This is especially important for anyone who wants to use an iPad as an alternative to the laptop. And when iOS 11 is available then we should all want the largest screen we can only get.

At the moment, the wide-screen display makes little difference in the new iPad Pro. Just because there is suddenly more space, do not automatically grow your ideas, and nothing changes with the iPad. But wait and see: I've been able to play around with iOS 11 a bit, and I have to say it feels like a giant step towards the "computer for all purposes," to which Apple would like to make the iPad.

What would be the standard question that arises in every meeting: Is the purchase worthwhile? If you're looking for a new iPad - definitely! Probably no Apple tablet was ever as versatile as this new iPad Pro. The 12.9-inch version is similarly recommended, but feels more like a desktop device, not necessarily like something to take away. The outdated iPad Mini is probably just before its end, so better not buy more. Also, if you have an iPad, which is still working fast, do not necessarily have to access.

If there are cracks in the display, apps start to get lame, or if you're just stunned to stare at too much housing around the touch screen, there's the regular iPad (recently updated, from $446), Which is very suitable for videos or gaming. Or the iPad Pro, which costs from $815 and becomes the best tablet you have ever used. (In addition, if necessary USD122 for the Pencil and USD133 for the Magic Keyboard.) Either way, despite dropping iPad sales, Apple is doing everything to be a device that has long been among the best in its class, still a thing of beauty.

PRO: A larger display can never hurt, and this not only reacts faster but also provides a better picture. // Very long battery life of several days. // Very fast processor. // In conjunction with iOS 11, the iPad becomes a full-fledged computer.

CON: At least USD815 for the basic variant with only 64 GB of memory is quite expensive. In addition, there are extra costs for accessories such as an external keyboard or the Apple Pencil. // The XL display will only pay off properly when iOS 11 is available (probably in autumn 2017).

How to tether your iPad to your phone

hotspot

Connect iPad to iPhone – Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot

All iPhones tends to connect to Internet at any location where a 3G or 4G signal is available though most of the iPads require Wi-Fi to be online. Though some iPad seem to have 3G and 4G connection, they tend to cost more and are not the common device resulting in the iPhone users usually getting online in areas iPad users seem to get stuck offline.

There seems an option here for iPad owners and if an iPhone is in the vicinity, only Wi-Fi iPads could get online by utilising a technology known as tethering. You can connect an iPad to an iPhone or Android device with a few taps and turn it into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot.If the user is aware on selecting a Wi-Fi network on the iPad then he is capable of turning the iPhone into a hotspot due to Instant Hotspot feature which Apple has included with the release of iOS 8.

 However one needs to open the app’s `Setting’ on the iPad, select the Wi-Fi and pick the iPhone for the networks which are made available on the list. If the available network is not displayed on the iPhone, one should make sure that Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth are enabled and that the same iCloud account is utilised on both devices.

Set up Personal Hotspot on iPhone

For the first time, the user will have to set up Personal Hotspot on the iPhone by going to Settings > Cellular > Dry Up Personal Hotspot and then follow the prompts. To enable the hotspot feature on Android device, the procedure may differ owing to the customizations that are made by the producers.

The hotspot feature of the device can be set up on opening Settings and utilising the search bar in order to locate `hotspot’.On giving a name for the network together with a password, you can open the Settings app on the iPad and select the network by going to Wi-Fi. On completion, the hotspot on the Android device can be turned off and your iPad will tend to get disconnected automatically.

Thereafter one will only require enabling the features of the hotspot on the Android device and your iPad will remember the network and get automatically connected. It is a good idea in creating a unique network name together with a password for the purpose of keeping your data secured irrespective of the device one intends using as a hotspot.

Share Cellular Data Connection

In order to share the cellular data connection of your iPhone with a nearby iPad to get it online, ensure that the three needs are met following these steps:

  • On the iPhone tap Settings 
  • Tap Personal Hotspot 
  • Move the Personal Hotspot slider to on/green 
  • Keep Personal Hotspot screen open on the iPhone, you may require the Wi-Fi password which is listed there 

If the user desires to tether to the iPhone the following steps on the iPad needs to be undertaken –
  • Wi-Fi needs to be turned on if the same is not `on’ which can be done through Control Centre or the Settings app
  • Tap Settings 
  • Tap Wi-Fi 
  • View the network created by iPhone which will be the name of the iPhone, for instance, my Personal Hotspot is known as Bluebird’s iPhone. You could tap it 
  • Edit the Wi-Fi network password form the Personal Hotspot screen of the iPhone 
  • Enter the password of the Wi-Fi network from the Personal Hotspot screen of the iPhone

Apple Patent Reveals Docking Gadget to Turn iPhone and iPad Into Computer

Apple Patent
Day n day out we experience a change in our lives. The change in the technological world is inevitable and we are quite surprised by the way the change has occurred. Thanks to the great and top companies in the world which has shaped our lives in a great deal. Well, we are quite familiar with the best phone in the world and that is iPhone developed by Apple. Needless to say, that these phones have the best features and designs in the world. There has been a recent update in the Apple arena that the iPhones or iPads are soon going to work like a complete computer. To be more specific, they will function like the famous Mac book of Apple. Apple’s patent have decided to with this outstanding approach.

THE PLAN 

The US Patent and Trademark Office has published a statement saying that the iPhone would be turned into the MacBook-like shell and power it using the smartphone. This is called the electronic accessory device. Well, the plan is that the touch pad of the Mac book is the place where you can dock your iPhone. There were some images being released on this concept. The Mac book will have everything including the screen, GPU ports, and keyboard. Only the screen of the iPhone will act as a tracking pad. It will also drive the whole unit as well. Well, some speculations is that the screen of the iPhone is inside the laptop chassis.

THE ASSURANCE

The reports have been stated in the Apple Insider but there are still no confirmation from the Cupertino labs whether they are going with this idea of turning the dump laptop terminal into the smart with the help of an iPhone. Well, it is not clear that how the synchronisation would be done in between the smartphone and laptop. The patents are trying out to figure of how to charge both the iPhone and the laptop in one go. So, Apple may have to try our something different from the earlier companies which have tried doing this.

THE FUTURE

It is too early to come to a conclusion now as there have been no confirmed news on this. It is not a new concept but how they bridge the gap is the thing that the common mass are looking forward. It will be big step towards the portability as well as saving the energy. The report also states that the iPad may become the screen for other versions of laptops. People who travel heavily will get a relief as the laptops would be light as well as they won’t have to face the problems of charging. So, now people are in a confused state whether to go for the iPhone 8 later this year or just test their patience for this docking gadget. It is surely going to create a great landmark in the tech market if launched within a few months.

How Apple's Force Touch could change the way you use your next iPhone or iPad

iPhone

Apple’s Force Touch – A Pressure Sensitive Display

The next iPhones of Apple would be announced next month which will be an `S’ year which means that if Apple tends to stick to the pattern it observed since 2008, the 2015 iPhones would maintain the same simple designs as the previous year’s model and concentrate instead on `under the hood’ enhancements. The big feature this year seems to be the Force Touch, a pressure sensitive display together with vibrating haptic beneath.

Apple had already released its two products this year which had Force Touch with each showing off their potential successes as well as pitfalls on what seems like Apple’s most prominent new technology of 2015. By definition haptic means any interaction involved with touch though there is a difference between advanced haptic and the vibration one gets on the phone. Rather than a buzz, one would feel a single tap or changing intensities of ripples.

Force Touch is a combination of pressure-sensitive display together with haptic feedback underneath. Game controllers such as the Xbox One tend to utilise the advanced haptic to develop rumble feelings as well as controller feedback. Apple’s Force Touch is appealing due to the introduction of a pressure sensitive touch display and most of the everyday touch screens presently available are not pressure sensitive.

Force Touch Trackpad – Send Variable Levels of Pressure

Apple Watch has Force Touch built in its display. The new Retina MacBooks, the Pro as well as the 12-inch have Force Touch enabled trackpads though they feel totally unlike from each other. The MacBook’s’ trackpad feel same like a regular trackpad though its click is a delusion – it is really using haptic.

A nested double click occurs between the first click and what occurs when one press down further, that extra second click tends to trigger contextual action such as a variation of right click. On a site, it tends to bring up definition of words or phrases one may highlight. At the time of video playback, it could organise change playback speed.

Force Touch trackpad tends to send variable levels of pressure though presently its use is being discoveredsubtly. However, it feels like a real button click. The software keyboard with Force Touch on an iPad will be very interesting.

Bigger Screened iPad Pro – Worked with Haptic Feedback/Force Sensitive Display

A bigger screened iPad Pro that had been rumoured for years worked with haptic feedback, force sensitive display together with a special stylus.

This proposes true pressure sensitive drawing and painting for artists, a feature which has made specialized styluses as well as input pads beneficial for graphic design. Microsoft Surface Pro already measures pressure sensitivity with the stylus as well as the Samsung S-Pen on the Galaxy Note 5.

 However an extra layer of feedback through haptic on the iPad could be utilised in developing sensations of textures or could sense borders or layers. Apple needs to make sure that force Touch does more than stand in for the type of touch and hold actions which exist already to bring up menus, or pull up extra actions such as deleting apps or copying and pasting photos as well as text. It is essential to feel like a useful, extra dimension of control and to be well integrated across apps and iOS 9.

Apple's New Blueprint for Your Next iPad

iPad

Blueprint of Apple’s Rumoured iPad

There was a point when tablets had filled every space in the group with consumer having a wide choice but over a period of time, the markets began splitting. An image had been posted by Twitter account OnLeaks run by Steve Hemmerstoffer, the site editor for Nowhereelse.fr, a French news site which has posted various reliable leaks in the past regarding Apple’s earlier iPads prior to their release.

Should his blueprint tend to be accurate, the upcoming launch of the 12.9 inch screened iPad Pro would measure about 12 x 8.7 x 0.2 inches. It would be larger than the iPad Air 2 with regards to length and width where the iPad Air 2 is 9.4 inches long and 6.6 inches wide though it is just slightly thicker at 0.28 inches thick as against 0.24.

The blueprint of Apple’s rumoured iPad that was leaked online, portrayed the tablet’s full dimension with an idea on what it could look like. He notes that though the blueprint dates back to December 2014, there could be a possibility that it could be out-dated and is not sure till Apple discloses about its next iPad which normally occurs in October.

Second Port/Inclusion of a Stylus/Split Screen Multitasking With iOS

Besides its larger screen and thinner frame, the next iPad is said to have a second port as indicated in a leak from Dutch blog VandaagApple. Rumours regarding the larger iPad has also revealed the inclusion of a stylus and would be probably introducing split screen multitasking within iOS, a feature which according to some was what Apple was striving to debut with iOS 8.

If the reports, rumours and leaks that have been circulating seem to be true, then this would be Apple’s largest iPad so far. It would probably be more appealing for enterprise use cases, a motivation which Tim Cook; Apple CEO had been speaking in the past. The iPad Pro’s bigger screen would be in an improved position in competing with the other tables which have been optimized for productivity such as Samsung’s Galaxy Note Pro as well as Microsoft’s new Surface.

Apple’s next tablet will be having a number of changes over its earlier models. Beside the larger screen size, the addition of Force Touch to the UI will enable easy access to extra options as well as settings while using application. The rumoured use of a digital stylus will support the creative process on the large screen.

Success – Low Margin Devices

When the tablets had first been introduced, computing landscape was very much different from what it seems currently. The main factors of mobility were reliance on laptops in doing significant portable computing jobs and smartphones with a four inch display was used for communication and connectivity.

From these it went to a nine or ten inch screen the first generation tablets were shipped with, inclusive of the original iPad and the distinctive advantages in portability as well as screen size which a tablet could offer became clear. While Android smartphones hold the majority of the market share – 82%, most of the success is around low margin devices.

Though Apple’s iPhone may not have the overall numbers, it tends to commands more profit per handset setting up Apple in gaining much of the profit from the smartphone ecosystem. If Tom Cook together with his team could perform an identical strategy in the tablet field in creating a high end device like the iPad Pro, it could draw the bulk of the profit from it and leave the low margin/high volume commodity game to other manufacturer.

Apple is setting itself Up For a Giant iPad

Apple
Apple’s larger Version 12.9 Inch iPad

It has been rumoured that Apple had be working on a 12.9 inch iPad for years.Some report that the company would be unveiling its bigger tablet at the Apple Watch event soon but there are other new reports indicating that the big iPad would not be available till fall. Some of the interesting features revealed by Apple recently are its iOS 9 operating system new controls which have been specifically designed for the iPad.
These comprise of –
  • Updated split screen mode to open quickly a second app in the right column and thereafter slide it away. For instance, one could quickly slide the Twitter app to view while reading a website.
  • A second much more powerful split screen mode to utilise fully two apps, side by side, for instance one could simultaneously browse through the map while going through, to-do list for the day.
  • Picture-in-picture mode which enables a video float above the rest of what one is doing on the iPad together with adjustable positioning and size.
  • New set of keyboard features which include the capabilities to swipe over the keyboard with two fingers in order to simulate a trackpad that is designed to make it easy in moving around a document and selecting text.
Striving for Untapped Market for iPad

These additional features could work well in the prevailing iPad line-up, the iPad Air of 9.7 inch screen and iPad mini of 7.9 inch screen. As the preference in tablets has lessen, Apple is striving for untapped markets for iPad and a larger version would add to the appeal to business customers. Presently several companies tend to use iPad while on the go computing and sending employees out in the field, with thinner, lighter and cheaper iPad seems to be an appropriate choice rather than expensive, bulkier laptops.

However, the iPad Air’s 9.7 inch screen is not ideal for work while the 12.9 inch screen would provide workers with around 60% more space to work on and the size would make it appropriate for the purpose of web browsing, creation of document and for presentation.Apple is also likely to provide the larger iPad; support for USB connected devices that would provide the capabilities of powering peripherals like the mouse, keyboard and the external hard drive.

New iPad for Corporate Consumers

Presently the iPad have Bluetooth keyboards but their AA battery power together with confined keys tends to make it far from ideal for good productivity. The new iPad would be one of the few Apple products aimed especially for corporate consumers. Apple had mainly given upon corporate consumers in recent years and companies have been apprehensive in adopting Apple products since Apple had not played well with the corporate customers and without notice, it eliminated critical products such as the Xserve, totally castrated the Final Cut software, thereby making the video producers unhappy. However, Tim Cook & Co have been changing it all and Apple seems to be serious in getting its mobile devices into the centre of the companies which it partnered with IBM – IBM.Tech30 in helping to get business software and security in the iPads. Apple is now actively making attempts to differentiate the iPad as a powerful productivity device and not merely as an entertainment product.

Apple to Launch Hardware Stylus – Enhance User Experience of iPad


Stylus
According to reports from KGI Securities, industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is likely to launch a hardware stylus to enhance user experience for its long rumoured 12.9 inch `iPad Pro’. It is reported that the Cupertino based company is planning to launch a stylus in the second quarter of the year to compliment the larger iPad. Kuo is of the belief that users would not need the stylus initially, thereby prompting Apple to launch the device as an optional add-on.

The report considers that the stylus would be simple to begin with and the future generations of the device could add features such as 3D handwriting. The stylus would be using the Lightning connector to charge and wireless charging would be a much more convenient option for consumers though adding the feature would probably increase the overall cost of the devices. Moreover the device is like to give rise to new breed of application especially for artists as well as for the educational market and the company has now filed for various patents with regards to the stylus which includes a stylus enabling users to transcribe handwritten notes to digital notes which could be viewed and edited from an iPad.

3D Handwriting Feature for Future Models 

Kuo states that the stylus could be more precise than a person’s finger and more convenient to use than the combination of keyboard and mouse in some cases and believes that Apple’s stylus would improve the user experience of 12.9-inch iPad. Moreover, Kuo who has a reliable track record, on predicting Apple’s future product direction, did not indicate any particular source for the rumour beyond Apple’s own patent filings which marks an unusual turn for him, who is known to have close connection to Apple’s supply chain partners.

He commented that coupled with its unfavourable cost structure, high selling prices could turn consumers off, if the said iPad is always bundled with it and therefore it is expected that the stylus should be an optional accessory before sufficient feedback is received from users. Though he does not expects features like a built-in gyroscope or accelerometer in its first year, he believes that Apple would be adding new features gradually and is expecting a 3D handwriting feature to their future models.

Good Application for Stylus

According to Kuo, he states that with the addition of a gyroscope accelerometer to a stylus, it enables users to write on the display as well as on other hard surfaces and even in the air. This being a good application for a stylus, the required software and hardware has not been fully developed yet and hence they cannot expect Apple’s stylus to support 3D handwriting in 2015.

He further added that while wireless charging would also be convenient, there was less likelihood of its implementation in its forthcoming stylus with regards to the higher cost as well as difficult antenna design and that charging could be expected via a Lightning connector. He believes that the stylus would be improving the user experience and that they would help Apple in developing specific customer groups like the corporate sector as well as the educational institutions.

iOgrapher iPhone and iPad camera platform


iOgrapher
iOgrapher, made for iOS devices, is an adaptable camera platform which can be equipped with various aftermarket lenses, microphones as well as other equipment which can change Apple’s mobile product range in a portable movie making studio. Fitted with premium optics, and backed by state of the art sensors as well as bespoke image processing technology together with a vast app store, the iOS devices are the most flexible portable camera systems in the market.

More focus is given to iPhones, which is seen on car commercial shots on Apple’s handset since the devices are usually one generation ahead of flagship iPad model with regards to camera capabilities though the tablet range is making much headway. Irrespective if one is an iPhone or iPad user, iOgrapher is developed to serve both with its light as well as flexible platform, capable of accepting aftermarket lenses, microphones, lamps etc.

While other camera mounts would need a case or a magnetic attachment for the lenses, the iOgrapher is a simple moulded plastic case that has handles and threaded brass to receive 37mm lenses and presently works with iPhone 5/5s, iPad Air, iPad 2/3/4 as well as iPad mini/mini 2/mini 3.

Device Tested for Both Form Factors

The device has been tested for both form factors with iPhone 5 and iPad mini and both the models have a relatively flat low profile polycarbonate moulded case with handles and threaded brass inserts for tripod mounting. Each accept 37mm lenses though the smaller version of iPhone only tends to support two cold-shoe mounts when compared to the iPad mini 3.

The two handles are excellent to grip, providing stability to the video and work very well with favoured video recording app. Good results are seen using Hyperlapse, exporting at 1x. At the time of testing, a RODE shotgun microphone as well as a Manfrotto 24 LED lamp was mounted to the cold-shoe mounts and at the time of taking photographs, it was found that a wide angled and macro lenses provided the best result. While filming, the wide angle or fisheye, does provide excellent result and the microphone and the light tend to be very useful while performing the video shoot.

Light and Easy to Operate 

The iOgrapher is light and easy to operate with the provision of two cold shoes, though not pretty. While on the iPad mini mode, though three cold shoe mounts are present, one may only be capable of using two, based on the width of the accessory connected and the lamp with the microphone are both wide enough to avoid using all three mounts simultaneously.

It is essential to be aware of a few things, when faced with some difficulty with the threads for the first time on using a lens. The brass being soft one should go slow ensuring that the threads are lined up so as to avoid cross thread and then taking the lens off, ensure to blow away any brass dust after use. Moreover while using an external microphone check whether the RODE is connected through the headphone jack or a lightning connected microphone using the Airplane mode. A distorted noise may interrupt a recording with any incoming notification sound that may come up.

Apple’s New iPad 2 Campaign


New iPad 2 Campaign
Apple has recently released a new iPad Air 2 campaign at the Sunday football showcasing various physical as well as software applications for the iPad Air 2. Featuring the title `Change’, the ad features a significant change in the marketing campaign of the company for its flagship tablet and is a departure from last year’s iPad Air which was focused on a single user.

Apple had previously promoted the iPad Air and iPad mini through its `Your Verse’, campaign and highlighted a single use case for the iPad in every ad of the campaign, in a particular field or discipline like mountaineering, sports training, marine biology, Bollywood choreography, music competition, travel writing and urban activism.

This new entry is not just the thinnest and lightest iPad created, but also the most powerful. From the studio to the classroom, the field to the garage, it helps individuals to identify new and improved ways to the various performances of their choice.

The original iPad when introduced four years ago set the standard for thinness and lightness and since then it has become even thinner and lighter which is due to its durable aluminium unibody. All Apple products are made from highly recyclable materials like aluminium and hence great efforts have been done to exclude harmful toxins from their components.

Colours Richer/Images Vivid & Sharper

The previous generation displays of iPads had used three separate components and iPad Air 2 has changed it all combining those three layers into only one which eliminates spaces between layers together with the internal reflectance due to those gaps.

The outcome is that the colours are richer, with great contrast while the images tend to get more vivid and sharper. The iPad Air 2 has a custom designed anti-reflective coating which reduces the glare by fifty six percent thus making it the least reflective tablet at present. Beside this, it is clearer and more readable in any kind of an environment such as office, classroom or even outdoors. Much attention is paid to the back of the iPad as it is done to the front with the anodized aluminium body of the iPad 2 which comes in three awesome metallic finishes which includes space gray, silver and gold.
Tagline `Change is in the Air’

Set to The Orwell’s - `Who Needs You’, this minute long ad which is similar to Apple’s `Dreams’ TV ad for iPhone 5s portrays a variety of instances across various settings wherein the iPad Air 2 is utilised in novel ways and the ad focuses on highlighting the device’s thinnest as well the lightness before summing with the tagline `Change is in the Air’.

Moreover the ad also promotes the webpage for the new campaign, apple.com/change and also features the iPad apps that are used in the ad which include Tayasui Sketches, AutoCAD 360, Post-it-Plus, iStopMotion for iPad, INSA’s GIF-ITI Viewer, OBD Fusion, Molecules by Theodore Gray and Animation Creator HD.

The TV ad of the new iPad Air 2 comes a couple of weeks after the release of the three TV ads for its Flagship smartphone, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus featuring the voices of Justin Timberlake and Jimmy  Fallon.

New iPad Air Leaks

New images displaying parts for the new full sized iPad have been leaked much ahead of its forthcoming Apple event, wherein photos re-published by apple.club.tw blog portrays a full logic board for the new iPad Air together with parts for the new Home button with Touch ID, glass screen cover and audio control components.

The new iPad Air logic board, at first glance does not show anything new though adjusting colours of image indicate an unexpected addition, an A8X system on a chip. The new Apple iPad Air 2 shortly to be announced is rumoured that the slate is powered by an A8X chip. The A8X variant of Apples’ chip like the earlier A5X and A6X, will probably have improved GPU performance which is also an indication that Apple would be putting the display resolution to the forthcoming iPad Air 2 to the Retina HD.

This has been discovered in the updated iOS 8.1 Beta which showed user interface elements designated as `3x-ipad’. The A8 chip seems to be a powerful processor which can handle larger iPhone screen and hence it seems that the A8X would be bringing the iPad much ahead of the iPhone with regards to specifications for the first time in a few years, if legitimate.

RAM increased to 2GB – Heavy Multitasking

Though the specifics of the resolution in question are unknown, there is a possibility of Apple shipping a sharper display than the present 2048 x 1536 pixel panel. Besides, additional GPU horsepower is not the only thing the A8X would be bringing to the table, it is alleged that the RAM would also be increased to 2GB, enabling heavy multitasking.

Other novelties for iPad user would be thinner profile at 7.5mm, 720m FaceTime camera together with Apple Pay besides the Touch ID. The internal storage option is also said to be of 32GBm 64GB and 128GB.There could also be various other reasons for Apple to choose to move to the A8X on its latest iPad Air, in making the iPad far better at graphics processing than the iPhone.

Some analyst reports together with indications from the iOS 8.1 beta software development kit shows that Apple would be moving to higher resolution Retina HD displays on the iPad Air later this year, shows that the screen would be 30-40% sharper on the iPad Air.

Need of a Much Stronger Graphic Processor

With the addition of pixels across 9.7 inches screen space, the iPad Air would need a much stronger graphics processor in order to keep the device functioning smoothly during operation. The new volume control component was also leaked wherein the audio volume up and down buttons are seen on the lower end of the image displayed, but in line with some leaked shells, a dedicated mute switch though is not shown on this particular part.

At the moment, there is a lack of leaks with regards to the new iPad mini which could be due to the constraints of shipping of the new model through 2014.The event on October 16th,will also be covering sharper iMacs and MacBook together with final details on OS X Yosemite.

Microsoft Brings Office Suite to Apple’s iPad" For Free

Microsoft Office Suite
Office Suite Version in Word/Excel/PowerPoint

It is reported that Microsoft will be bringing its Office Suite of products to the iPads driving the point home of its long rumored version of Microsoft Office for iPads which trailed the iPhone and Android versions of software by nine months with the software going live in the iOS App Store, very soon. The Office Suite version comes with Word, Excel and PowerPoint and is available only for iPads running and can create and edit files created in other versions of the software.

They also feature the same OneDrive integration as the Windows as well as mobile version; the tablet application seems to be more capable than the mobile versions. Microsoft states that the app will preserve the formatting and visual fidelity of documents which are created on other platforms. This application would be available at no cost, though it comes with some strings attached.

Users can download the application from the App Store without an Office 365 subscription wherein they can only view and read data files but not edit them. If the need to create, improve or edit documents, an Office 365 subscription would be needed which would cost around $100 a year, as related by Business Insider.

Empowering to be Productive Across all Devices

Office seems to be the most important product for Microsoft. Microsoft is taking the risk of making Office irrelevant and though it is a bit late, its decision could be right in deciding to bring Office to the iPad. Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, states that Microsoft is willing to take risk and this move seemed important since it indicates a mindset change at Microsoft.

According to Microsoft, Office for the iPad does not seem to be an altered version of the Windows suite but made brand new for the iPad which appears to blend in smoothly on the iPad and according to Business Insider, Microsoft had invested in making the transition seamless. Microsoft has also stated that bringing Office to iPad was a way to empower people enabling them to be productive and work more across all devices.

Value Added Features

The Office for iPad in general retains some of the value added features which could be associated with Office inclusive of the ability in tracking changes and co-author documents. While tracking changes on its part does take up bulk of the Review menu in Word for iPad, it does seems to be well implemented and co-authoring support enables users to work on a document simultaneously.

Apple on its part is very much excited that the software is coming to its ecosystem. Apple spokesperson, Trudy Muller informed CNET in an email stating that they were excited that Office is coming to iPad mentioning that it was a new addition to its many existing productivity app already available for the tablet like iWork, Evernote and Paper by FiftyThree.

A Quiet update to Office Mobile for iPhone has also been issued by Microsoft and the version 1.1 of the software updates the application for iOS 7 eliminating the requirement of Office subscription. Moreover the viewing and editing of documents stored in OneDrive would be free to the user with Microsoft account irrespective of their subscription status.

Best Browsers for Ipad and Iphone


Dolphin
The iPhone and iPad browsing facilities are available with default Safari browser. So it doesn’t mean that they have to stick out with that browser. They have now offered several good iPhone browsers that have released and working well and giving an extra option for mobile browsing. Safari offer Flash video or navigate web pages but the new browsing app also offers these features some extra acceleration.Let’s see which offers a better feature browsing facility.

1. Chrome:
 Chrome the first major desktop browser to make a mark at the iOS. This is integrated with Google account and services featuring with nice interface option. Safari with new design to the header is competing among web browsers to kick start to higher arena.

2. Dolphin:
 From the list of given browser it takes the lead to satisfy the user with more options. It is innovative, powerful and free. This browser is little faster than Safari can work with, provideddownloading management and crash recovery in case of failure. One of the best in the list, but lack of iPad support and doesn’t import bookmarks form Safari.

3. Opera Mini Browser:
 If you are searching a perfect alternative for Safari then I would recommend you to go with Opera Mini, faster than the build in browser of iPhone and difference is surely noted while surfing heavy graphics websites. Opera is faster due to compressed version of web pages that is routed to its servers.

4. Atomic:
Atomic unlike other browser can be availed at $.99 and not a full replacement of Safari. This full version is better than Dolphin, Atomic allows you to import book marks form Safari. Varity of options and setting are available when you opt for web development

5. Mercury:
 Clearing bugs this provides a solid browser with full screen, tabbed browsing, bookmarks importing and gestures. Download manager is buggy and if it’s cleared then it will be top contender.

6. Photon:
 Photon deals best with flash. It takes remote desktops Flash and map to your iPhone. Sometimes this cause slow connection, or cause user-interface creepiness, or it works well. Desktop version is not that good at considering iPhone is worthy. This version is Available at $3.99 in Android Market.

7. Switch:
Switch is aiPad specific browser, that includes multiple account and can have a privacy to the user accounts, it supports Airplay and HTML 5 video. Browsers much faster than Safari while loading.

8. Webout:
Webout worthy if you tend to have Apple TV. It supports both audio and video for second generation Apple TV and you can notice video loading a much faster rate.

9. Cloud Browser:
 Many iOS browser not supports Flash or Java. To overcome n this Cloud Browser can be installed, it runs full version in Firefox as server and streams this to iOS device. Problem with this is that audio and video get out of sync and jerky during play.

10. Knowtilus Pro:

This provides more feature and different from other app, while focusing on this basic are being missed and needed to redefine. This app is available at $5.99. Feature offered by this is RSS reader, a barcode scanner, text-to-speech capabilities and efficient than other browsers.

How to Get the Most From Your iPad

When the iPad was first released it turned out that Apple was once again changing the world of mobile technology forever. There kind of seems to be a theme there, huh? It seems that every time there is a big change coming in the mobile technology industry, Apple is always on the bleeding edge of it. Well, now that Apple has become the leading mobile tablet producer, many of you have already purchased your own iPad and are constantly looking for new ways to utilize it. Here are a few of my favorite ways that you can max out the performance of your device.

Get a SIM-Only Plan for Your iPad

The iPad can easily connect to wireless networks for sure, but because it is intended largely for use as a mobile device I always tell people that if you can't get a data connection because you're nowhere near a Wi-Fi network, then you've lost a lot of the functionality of your device. That's a problem when you consider that the iPad was meant for traveling with. I usually tell people to get a data plan for their iPad so they can use it on the go. Here is a list of several of my favorite data plan options for avid iPad users. And here is another great guide to picking a great mobile SIM plan.

Get Mobile Device Insurance

Once again we go back to the intended purpose of the iPad as a mobile device. You were intended to travel with it or take it outside of your home with you. Most people think that their homeowner's or renter's insurance will cover their iPad but they don't realise that this applies only when the device is in the home. If you take it outside of the house and it gets stolen, lost, or damaged, then you are out of luck. This is why a dedicated device insurance policy for your expensive iPad is never a bad idea.

Purchase a Good Set of Headphones

Whether you prefer ear buds, on-ear, or over-ear headphones, I recommend that everyone get a quality set of headphones for their device. Nothing can raise the value and pleasure you get out of your iPad like a good quality sound experience. Listening to music on the train? Watching a movie on the plane? Well, you'll get even more pleasure out of it by getting some good quality sound out of your iPad. Trust me on this one.

Learn to Love the Bigger Screen

Most of what you can do on your iPad can also be done on the smaller iPhone. This largely isn't a problem. However, for things that require significant screen time such as video calls over Skype, watching movies, playing games, etc. the bigger screen of the iPad is a godsend. I have an iPhone and an iPad, and when I'm able to, I always choose to do the tasks and functions that require more screen time on my iPad. My eyes thank me for it.
There are a lot of things that you can do to enhance your user experience when it comes to using your new iPad. The few listed here are what I consider to be the absolute essentials. But don't let that stop you from considering your own personal enhancements for your own iPad user experience. If you're going to invest in a SIM plan for you iPad, I suggest you check out these low cost SIM-only contracts.
Laura Ginn is a professional writer and blogger who spends a lot of time at local coffee shops writing on her iPad. Because she takes her iPad with her almost everywhere she's become an expert in getting the most out of her user experience.

All about iPad mini part.I



Apple has always defended its size 10 ", suitable for single shelf, which is loved mostly by Steve Jobs. But now, the market pressures eventually convince Cupertino to work on a smaller model.

Apple never chose his screen sizes randomly. In digging into history, old-timers will remember as the output of the Mac IIsi with its screen in "portrait" which surprised everyone (but very convenient way to view an A4 sheet on the screen). At its output, the 1.0 iMac was also equipped with a 15 "screen (not 17, yet became the norm), the iPhone is stuck 5 years with its 3.5" ... Almost every time, Steve Jobs came to defend their choices, dictated by him, by compromise and ergonomic techniques. Thus, with its 10-inch diagonal, the iPad was as iPapy-format ideal for use that flowed for reading magazines, surfing the net, watching videos proves that Jobs was not wrong.


The format of 8 "was defended tooth and nail by Apple during the presentation of the iPad mini displays as 35% additional area in 4/3 compared with tablets 7", often 7/9. iPad mini was born of this approach: the market was the applicant, the competition was organized, but it was perfect the concept in finding acceptable compromises and more importantly, without losing an entire application ecosystem.
