Instant Expert: Secrets & Features of iOS 8.1

With my iOS 8.1 on iPhone 5s pictures sent by iMessage a revert to unedited form. Also, many pictures are now blurry. Any ideas on what to do to fix this?

What's New in iTunes 12

If you are referring to the mini player, then just click the artwork on the left of the now playing window.

I don’t have access to my iMac at the moment, so can’t give exact details, but I know that this can then be reduced further, removing, the artwork, by clicking something within the mini-player.

What's New in iTunes 12

I have tried repeatedly to get a response from Apple support (with no luck) about why they took away the “view all” feature from the Wish List.  Had a lot of items saved there but now cannot view anything beyond the latest selections.  What’s the point of having a wish list if you cannot see all the items saved to it?!?

What's New in iTunes 12

Getting album art is much less convenient in 12.  Can’t seem to copy and paste from the web directly into info anymore.  Have to download the image then add it from your computer. 

Also wish the pop-out player would allow for much larger sizing, if not whole screen.  Why not ?

What's New in iTunes 12

Worst. App. Update. Ever.
Having to click on the movies button (or music etc.) THEN click on the store button to get that file type to show up in the store is completely worthless.

But the worst part of this app: taking away the side bar so you can’t see all your file types at once! I think the Apple designers did this just to make themselves feel busy. Seriously, worst app update in the history of Apple. Shame on you all for this monstrosity being released on the world.

I hate the way it looks when i click to album; it’s too ugly in comparison to the last versions. I wish I hadn’t updated!

An Easy Guide To Setting Up + Using Apple Pay In iOS 8.1

An Easy Guide To Setting Up + Using Apple Pay In iOS 8.1

It isn’t Apple Pay that brick and mortar stores don’t yet support, it’s NFC payments themselves.  Apple Pay in a retail store setting is a regular NFC payment.  Any store with payment terminals displaying the NFC payment logo will work with an Apple Pay enabled device…

What's New in iTunes 12

I’ve been using iTunes since it was introduced and I’ve never had much difficulty adjusting to the new versions. I have to say that this version is the best yet; I just can’t stop playing with it.

I love the new ‘Recently Added’ field in the Album and Artist windows. I often had trouble remembering the latest CDs I had downloaded, so, despite wanting to find an album, I often used the songs window just so that I could use the ‘Date Added’ column.

Maybe this was a feature that needed to be selected which I overlooked in previous versions, as I’m surprised it wasn’t mentioned in the article.

A couple of niggles I still have: When I search for an artist in Album view I’d like to be able to filter the result to just see albums by that artist, excluding other people’s albums and compilations they may be on, and albums by artists who have covered their songs, just like you can in Artist view.

And it still annoys me that the Search field doesn’t retain my search when I move between My Music and the Store.

But these are minor issues I can live with; overall IMO iTunes 12 is a job well done.

What's New in iTunes 12

Can anyone please tell me how to get back the fields of Grouping and Episode ID in iTunes??? I can’t get to these metadata fields anymore and I just added new TV series content to my media library. Its annoying because my smart playlist goes by grouping and sort by Episode ID.

What's New in iTunes 12

@ #4 - There’s an app called MetaX that, while not necessarily the best or prettiest thing out there, can edit every field iTunes can/will display (even theatrical ratings) and will also embed poster art into the video file’s metadata. It’s free.

#5 - While I agree that having a separate app for iTMS/App Store (with integration for Mac App Store) would be great, I like the fact that iTunes does it all. It’s a media server for the Apple TVs that I own, it’s how I play back movies, TV, music, podcasts, and everything else on my Mac both locally and in the cloud, and it helps me manage my massive collection of music and movies (at least 400GiB of music, and 3x that in movies).

@ Nick Guy - the sidebar is still there, kinda; it’s buried in the “Playlists” option. However, iDevices don’t show up over there anymore. Being that I’m a long-time iTunes user (version 2 on a PowerMac 8500), I actually like the changes made. I’ll be giving it a shot on my Windows 7 box soon, hoping Apple cleaned up the code base.

What's New in iTunes 12

I like the way it looks.

One minor nit - the Account Name in the control bar displays my legal name instead of my nickname - it shows William instead of Will.

I really appreciate that the album covers now no longer have fuzzy /cloudy edges. That was an insult to the cover art designers.

TV Shows should still be changed in name to Series, since many series, such as web series, are not television shows except in an abstract sense.

Mind The Gap: What's iPad's Role In An iPhone 6 (Plus) World?

YES! iPhone 6 Plus UI is a mess! Case in point: all of Apple’s app. Rotate your iPhone 6 Plus so that the home button is at the top. Now run any of Apple’s app like iMessage, Calendar, Photos, etc. When you open them the screen is upside down.

The Early Guide To Apple Watch Apps

I am pretty excited about the watch and I think Apple was right in creating a good diversity initially.

This is a nice summation of what is currently known and I think it will be expanded as more details are revealed.

A small correction though, you refer to ‘Estimated ETA’, when ETA, by its very definition, is Estimated Time of Arrival.

What's New In Apple TV 7.0

Is that it?  A few cheesy and unnecessary UI changes? 

What about functionality changes?  What about adding universal search?  What about adding a universal provider so I don’t have to add my DirecTV account info and activate on every channel?

What about adding to App Store? 
What about adding apps like Safari, Find My iPhone, Find Friends, Mail or Messaging?  There are a lot of things that can be improved more than just making the UI flat.

I don’t bother upgrading to new versions of iTunes any more because I’m tired of doing it, I DON’T WANT MAJOR CHANGES.
Thank you.
