iLounge Multi-Editorial: WWDC 2014's iOS 8, OS X Yosemite + More

From WWDC 2014 we have:

1. (i)OS updates including “Continuity”

2. no new hardware + a statement that the updated (i)OS will run on current hardware

3. the knowledge that Yosemite is that last version of OS X aka Mac OS.

I wonder if all this points to a truly revolutionary overhaul of the Apple ecosystem, currently just over the horizon? Perhaps a complete paradigm shift away from iPhone + iPad + Mac?

iLounge Multi-Editorial: WWDC 2014's iOS 8, OS X Yosemite + More

@3: So the previously separate iPad (March), iPhone (June), and iPod (September) events with Mac releases throughout the year weren’t a good thing? Apple was playing too many cards throughout the year?

Just checking. It seemed like a really great strategy to keep people continually excited and spread out purchases over 12 months.

iLounge Multi-Editorial: WWDC 2014's iOS 8, OS X Yosemite + More

Really, editor-people, i realize you must all be gadget heads (iLounge is tops for iOS accessories/peripherals info and reviews).

but you really missed it today. went right by you.

us consumers saw several dozen very useful iOS/OS X improvements we will all enjoy a lot. ultimately, the quality of the user experience is what produces satisfied repeat buyers, not simply snazzy new hardware.

and developers saw about a dozen new options for their apps that they really wanted and can take big advantage of. so there will be a fantastic new generation of iOS 8 apps coming out later this year as a result, further delighting consumers.

this is all HUGE news in fact, and sets the stage very well for the hardware launch to come in the Fall.

you’re right that the new hardware is what generates mega media excitement, as exemplified by those long lines outside Apple stores. but really, you can only play that card once a year. as to the pre-launch hype build-up web sites love so much, the already-active rumor mill will generate a classic will they/won’t they suspense meme in the media (about the iWatch i guess) that will have you all in a frenzy by September.

just try to have some patience and not foam at the mouth too soon.

iLounge Multi-Editorial: WWDC 2014's iOS 8, OS X Yosemite + More

I think OSX Yosemite and iOS 8 really are awesome. The features and implementations are simply phenomenal.

Even with no hardware announcement, this was more than enough.

With Family Share, Apple turned the concept of having profiles on iOS devices on its ear.

I have enrolled for the beta testing program and have downloaded OSX and have just installed iOS 8 on my iPad Air.

I have downloaded the Swift guide from iBooks and can’t wait to start working with it.

I am really excited!

The Complete Guide to FaceTime + iMessage: Setup, Use, and Troubleshooting

I have an iPad mini that was sending and receiving iMessages fine, but now will not. I did not change any settings. It is wifi only, and uses the same Apple ID and phone number as my 5c.

iLounge Multi-Editorial: WWDC 2014's iOS 8, OS X Yosemite + More

Haven’t watched the Keynote yet (will do so soon) but from what I gather from the above is this—today’s event made “Continuity” from the user’s perspective a key theme.  That sounds very appealing and I’m looking forward to these capabilities.

But reading between the lines, this (buzzword) is independent of hardware, so even if Apple had hardware to talk about, that may have been a distraction from today’s theme of ‘continuity’ which will be enabled by upcoming software enhancements.

As much as we are all eager to see new hardware, and as much as Apple needs to hit some home runs soon, perhaps Apple left hardware out of the keynote to let software take center stage today.

The Complete Guide to iTunes Books, Podcasts + iTunes U

I just downloaded some library books and transferred them to my IPod.  The books show up in the Ipod, but many of the sections/chapters are faded out, with grayed-out dotted circles next to them.  Does that mean they did not transfer correctly?

The Complete Guide to FaceTime + iMessage: Setup, Use, and Troubleshooting

When using facetime on macpro laptop or ipod (5th gen), I get strangers instead of wife or son (I’ve checked and rechecked contact info). Apple has a support thread on this problem. Worst part is, strangers are irate parents who say I’m calling their daughter!

iMessages come in from email address instead of phone number

If my iMessage is turned off, but my iCloud email is acting like my iMessage, can the messages be traced and/or tracked on a Sprint carrier bill or any carrier bill?

Changing iPhone number for iMessage

Recently I switched my iphone number to a blackberry and got a new number for the iphone.  I deregistered the old number from apples servers, however, the old number is somehow still being recognized by apple for purposes of imessage.  If imessage is active in my iphone, i cannot text myself on my blackberry because the system thinks the blackberry phone number is imessage capable.  The texts simply show as sent on the iphone and disappear into cyberspace, never showing up on the blackberry.

The Complete Guide to FaceTime + iMessage: Setup, Use, and Troubleshooting

I have iphones 5C and 5S. 5C works fine with Facetime. But 5S does not work. I already log in with AppleID but when I place a Facetime call or received a Facetime call I can’t hear or see the caller image (even it said Facetime connecting…). The caller will not see and hear me too. Please advise.
Thank you.

iTunes library disappears after enabling iCloud

Not sure I followed the problem since iTunes and iCloud have nothing to do with one another. Purchases are in the cloud - not iCloud. iTunes Match is in the cloud - not iCloud. iCloud is a service for mail, contacts, calendars, notes and among other things, Photostream. But it has zero involvement with iTunes.
Now, sure- iTunes can lose a library if something happens. But generally the actual music will always remain as the library is completely independent of the program and, more notably, iCloud.

The Complete Guide to Managing iTunes Videos

I was using Samsung galaxy tab before, and my main reason to use it is playing video files for some training course.
I switched to iPad mini and now I’m so regret that I did this because
1-  on Samsung I was able to copy video files to my tab easy same you copy files to a flash memory , but on this iPad it’s so hard to do it
2- after the headache of copying files finished I was shocked when I tried to play the videos as the only option available is delete videos ,,,,!!!!!you can not do any thing else .
Apple devices are just name.
