The job of an editor is often unglamorous. In addition to guiding the creative process and making sure writers stick to each publication’s style, there’s the thankless task of cleaning up copy once the deadline has been met. There are several good Mac utilities to make this less of a chore, but only one also works on mobile devices. Smart ... Read More »

The wait is over… well, sort of. Apple has officially unveiled iOS 10, but the new iPhone and iPad-friendly update won’t hit your device until later this year – sometime in the autumn, to be slightly more precise. Ensure you opt for the now downloadable iOS 10 public betathat is. With new iOS 10 features aplenty on their way – we’re talking ... Read More »

Screens 4 for iOS brings new Curtain mode, improved keyboard support, visual tweaks, much more

1461650826-9604-img-0385

Since learning to trust my iPad Pro to do more of the tasks my Mac usually handles, Screens VNC has been a critical piece of the equation. iPads can be just as powerful as Macs on paper and also do things Macs never could, but iOS still has software limitations that make OS X a requirement for me. I’ve been using Screens ... Read More »

iOS 9 climbs to 84% adoption, Apple ramps iOS 10 testing ahead of WWDC

1461648171-8668-eenshot-2016-03-11-07-08-531

Although Apple usually updates its iOS adoption statistics on a fortnightly basis, the company had strangely stopped updating its iOS chart last month. As iOS 9 growth appeared to have stalled, perhaps the numbers simply didn’t change significantly in that time. However, this week Apple hasupdated the chart with a significant jump, now reporting iOS 9 was seen on 84% of active devices as of April 18th. With ... Read More »

The Dux for iPad Pro is a lightweight, rugged case with a handy Apple Pencil holder

1461647421-9960-ipad-pro-dux

Ever since the iPad Pro came out, it seemed like an obvious third-party accessory would be a case that could also hold a Pencil. However, six months on, the number of iPad Pro cases with good Apple Pencil compatibility is still pretty small. You are by no means spoilt for choice if you are looking to buy an iPad Pro case with ... Read More »

8 annoying iPad Pro problems, and what to do about them

1459321932-3236-ple-ipad-pro-1500x1000-640x0

The iPad Pro’s large, 12.9-inch display, split-screen multi-tasking support, and 10-hour battery life are tempting millions into buying Apple’s biggest tablet ever. It’s an attractive device for productivity and creativity, but it isn’t flawless. If you’ve splashed out on one, then you have every right to expect it to work perfectly. Sadly, for some people it has been behaving unprofessionally. ... Read More »

USB-C to Lightning Cable + 29W Power Adapter is what should have shipped with the 12.9″ iPad Pro

1459315254-2483-usb-c-to-lightning-cable

The 12.9″ iPad Pro is a great productivity device, but unfortunately it ships with an inadequate 12W power adapter. This is the same charger commonly used with the smaller 9.7″ iPad line, and it’s much inadequate for a device as large and as power hungry as the 12.9″ iPad Pro. I find that when using the iPad Pro at full ... Read More »
