Jeff Williams and the continued success of Apple's ops team

Jeff Williams, senior vice president of operations at Apple, took over day-to-day leadership of the ops team following Tim Cook's transition from Chief Operating Officer (COO) to Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Since then Apple has shipped a flabbergasting number of iPhones, a huge number of Macs and iPads, and started ramping up to ship the first batch of Apple Watches. To say Williams runs the best ops team in the business does him and them a disservice — No one else even comes close. That's no dount why he's getting some much-deserved attention following Apple's blow-out Q1 2015 results.

How to manage iCloud Drive syncing over cellular

If you store a lot of documents in iCloud Drive, and you're on a limited data plan, you may not want apps moving large files around unless you're on Wi-Fi. Cellular data use with iCloud Drive is nowhere nearly as intensive as streaming music or videos, but if you want to make sure not a bit goes by without your say so, you can manage it all in Settings.

Nine magnificent mail apps for iPhone

Nine magnificent mail apps for iPhone

Apple has built Mail right into the iPhone, with universal inbox, multiple draft support, gesture actions, and more. Yet the App Store is home to many other mail apps as well, some focused on a particular service, others on workflows like "inbox zero". Which one you use depends as much on personality as feature set.

If you're still looking for a Mail app, check out the list we've compiled. And when you choose — or if you've already chosen — let us know which one you went with in the poll!

Adobe PaintCan for iPad transforms your photos into handpainted masterpieces

Adobe has added another iPad app to its growing library called PaintCan. Instead of providing finely detailed artistic tools, PaintCan allows amateurs and pros alike to add broad, artistic filters to photos. These brushstrokes are added selectively to areas you want. Parts of the image can remain as sharp and detailed as you like, while the rest around it can look like it's been handpainted.

How to quickly get directions to any address on your iPhone

How to quickly get directions to any address on your iPhone

Apple's taken a bunch of steps in the past few years to make it easier to find directions for any given address, including data detectors that intelligently make addresses tappable in Messages, Maps search suggestions in Safari, and more. But the system isn't perfect, and I often find myself executing far too many steps every time I want to get directions for a location — even more so if I want to use Google Maps.

Instead, I offer a simpler solution: Using Workflow, you can quickly get directions to any address from your clipboard. Friend didn't format their address in a way iOS can parse? Don't want to go through the hassle of copying and pasting an address from one place to your Maps app of choice, waiting for directions to load, and so on? This fixes all that.

iTunes Connect offline following login issues [Update: Back]

Update: iTunes Connect is now back online.

iTunes Connect, the portal Apple developers use to manage their apps, is currently offline. This follows several developers reporting login issues where they were presented with apps accounts not their own. That's obviously an incredibly serious problem, as evident by iTunes Connect being taken down.

Apple is no doubt aware of the issue and we suspect iTunes Connect will be back online when the login issues have been resolved.

Rock a dual-screen setup on your MacBook with Mountie

Laptops are wonderful because they're portable — you can work at your desk, you can work on a plane, you can work sprawled on your couch, you can work standing at a kitchen table. But with that freedom comes limitations: balancing a Stump Stand on your couch for your iPad or iPhone is doable, but not ideal.

Enter Mountie — the goofy gadget from Ten One Design I giggled over at first, but have grown to love.

Smartphone Futurology: The science behind your next phone's processor and memory

The electronic brains behind the supercomputer in your pocket

Welcome to Smartphone Futurology. In this new series of science-filled articles, Mobile Nations guest contributor Shen Ye walks through current technologies in use within our phones, as well as the cutting-edge stuff still being developed in the lab. There's quite a bit of science ahead, as a lot of the future discussions are based on scientific papers with a vast amount of technical jargon, but we’ve tried to keep things as plain and simple as possible. So if you want to dive deeper into just how the guts of your phone function, this is the series for you.

A new year brings the certainty of new devices to play with, and so it’s time to look ahead at what we might see in the smartphones of the future. The first instalment in the series covered what's new in battery tech, while the second article looked at what's next in the world of mobile displays. The series' third part focuses on the electronic brains of our mobile devices — the SoC (system on a chip) and flash storage. The rise of smartphones, and fierce competition among rival manufacturers, has accelerated the pace of technological progress in both these areas. And we're not done yet — there are ever wilder technologies on the horizon that may some day find their way into future devices. Read on to find out more.
