This is the one with Apple Fitness+.
I recently set up a new completely new Home in the Home app and needed to move all my stuff over from one to the other. This turned out harder than I had anticipated.
This is the one with the intercom feature for HomePods, but make sure to go through the on-boarding process in the Home app first, since it doesn’t seem to want to work otherwise.
This is a small bug-fix update but well worth it, considering how buggy 14.0 is. I’m currently on the 14.2 beta and even that one is far from perfect.
Don’t forget to backup your device first and please be warned — iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are still chock full of small bugs. You might have some software issues with your apps too, if they haven’t been updated yet.
iOS 13.7 (Build 17H35) for…
This release fixes a few bugs, which includes a “thermal management issue that caused some displays to exhibit a green tint.”
Please remember to get a full encrypted backup via iTunes or Finder of your iPhone or iPad if you’re planning on getting on the iOS 14 beta train. This is just in case you need to go back and want to minimise data loss.
This is a security update, so you might want to get it installed as soon as possible.
This is the “pandemic” update but there a number of security patches too, so make sure to get this as soon as possible.
I forgot to post these earlier, so here they are… Continue reading →
I have been using Pedometer++ since it’s debut on the iPhone 5S. I don’t think I’ve ever had it lose any significant amount of data and since every new iPhone was restored from a backup of an older model, it’s count should be pretty accurate. I continue to use it today, on both my iPhone 11 Pro and Apple Watch Series 4. The counter recently displayed 15 million steps.
It took me a little over 6 years and now, dear Underscore David Smith, I need a new goal.
This build supposedly fixes the bug where iOS/iPadOS constantly kills background apps. I have not found this to be a sufficient fix — it’s better, but not ideal.
This version is still buggy as hell, but most things are a lot better now. Also, it adds AirPods Pro support.
iOS 13.1.3 (Build 17A878) for…
While it might be a minor security and bugfix update, it’s worth installing this ASAP.
iOS 13.1 seems to be pretty stable for me, both on iPhone and iPad, with a few small glitches here and there. Ultimately, this is the first iOS 13.x update you should install! And make sure to check out all the new Shortcuts automation features.
iOS 13.0 is very buggy for some people. If you’re not in a rush, wait until tomorrow for iOS 13.1 to come out of beta.
Lot’s of safety/security/privacy stuff in these so make sure to install them as soon as possible.
Ever since I stopped using Photoshop CC (opening a simple export dialogue window can take a few seconds instead of being instantaneous!), I have had one major gripe with Affinity Photo — it’s inability to remember the last used settings on the Resize Canvas tool. Today I finally fixed it with Keyboard Maestro and I don’t know why I didn’t do this earlier.
These updates fix a lot of very important security bugs. Install ASAP.
A new build of iOS was released over the weekend, addressing an iMessage bug, amongst others.
Mozilla released Firefox 67 a few days ago and they introduced support Dark Mode, as Safari did a while ago too. This prompted me to finally tackle implementing this feature here, on Infinite Diaries, hacking through my CSS. I should have spent the time to rewrite it from scratch, using CSS variables, but that will have to be done another day.
P.S. You might have to clear your browser’s cache to get it to work.
From Apple’s iOS 12.2 release notes:
Smart Search Field queries can now be modified by tapping the arrow icon next to search suggestions.
I missed this when reading the release notes on the day iOS 12.2 was released but I found it today by accident. I have been probably waiting for this feature for at least 5 years, if not longer. All I can now say is…
I got a Raspberry Pi last year just to integrate some of my less-than-smart devices with HomeKit, so I could control them via Siri. Late last year I decided to get a Logitech Harmony Hub to be able to control my TV, receiver, and Apple TV with Siri but Logitech decided to change-up their plans, shutting down their local API which integrated with Homebridge. They backtracked on their plans after their users voiced their outrage and new firmware dropped a few weeks ago. I had to make some changes but I finally got my Harmony Hub working with Siri once again. Here’s what I had to do…
