Which protective case are you using on your iPhone 6?

I get asked about iPhone 6 case recommendations a lot, especially for protective cases, especially by people whose occupations require them. For the last few years I've simply recommend Otterbox or LifeProof and been done with it. This year, however, the feedback for the Otterbox Defender for iPhone 6 has been less than reassuring — the top question on Amazon's page right now is "Has anyone sought feedback from Otterbox on all the complaints this case has received? Has anyone received comments from Otterbox about the issues?" — and, almost two months post-launch, the LifeProof for iPhone 6 still hasn't shipped. So, I'm left wondering — what should I recommend?

How to get the best video transcoding results on your Mac

My friend and frequent podcast co-host, Don Melton, has recently updated his excellent scripts for transcoding video on the Mac. He cares about every pixel and every bit, and wants the very best results possible. Based on the feedback to date, so do a lot of other people. If you're one of them, here's the intro from the latest version, fresh from GitHub:

72 hours with CarPlay: Test-driving Pioneer's new aftermarket system

Over at Macworld, Susie Ochs spent a few days using one of Pioneer's new after-market CarPlay systems with her iPhone. Her thoughts?

CarPlay is cool, and if I was buying a car that had it, I would be stoked to use it—but I'm not going to upgrade the stereo that's in my 2006 Subaru to this aftermarket Pioneer system.

We've changed @iMore and introduced @iMore_Firehose — Here's why!

Starting today, we're changing the way iMore uses Twitter. The @iMore account is no longer going to automatically tweet every article we post. Instead, our editorial team is going to carefully, manually tweet only the stories we think are the most interesting and relevant to you, our readers and community. If you really want everything, just like RSS, you can follow the new @iMore_Firehose account. Otherwise, your timeline is about to get less full. So, why the change?

Dim your screen further than Control Center allows (and other cool iOS 8 tricks)

Dan Frakes, formerly of Macworld, took some time on Monday to write up a giant compendium of iOS 8 tips, tricks, and hints that he's compiled over his months beta-testing the operating system. There's a lot of good stuff in there for people interested in Mail shortcuts, Siri, and Safari, but my personal favorite new trick—and one I hadn't heard about until now—is how to dim the screen further than what Control Center allows.

Meet Windows Central, Mobile Nations' new home for everything Microsoft!

Mobile Nations is not only the home of iMore, which covers everything Apple, but Android Central where you can get your Google on, and CrackBerry for BlackBerry, but we have a site dedicated to Microsoft as well. That site was once-upon-a-time called WMExperts, and for the last while has been WPCentral, but today they've got an all new name to fit with their expanded focus: Windows Central. Yes, they're still covering Windows on phones, but they're also covering Windows on tablets, hybrids, laptops, and desktops, on the Surface and Xbox, and on the cloud.

Best iPhoneography of the week

Photo by Ally KazmuchaPhoto by Ally Kazmucha

Every day, millions of photos are taken around the world, and a good chunk of those are taken on an iPhone. It's no wonder why — the iPhone is super portable, has an amazing iSight camera and an incredibly easy to use Camera app. Combine that with the ability to share photos instantly via Twitter, Instagram and other social networks, and you have the perfect solution for capturing and publishing any moment imaginable. So, each week we're going to scour the social networks for uplifting, inspiring, touching, and all around amazing photos using #iphone #iphoneography #vscocam and similar hashtags and embed the best of what we find. And since iMore has an Instagram account now, if you really want to get our attention and get featured, use #imoregram to make sure we don't miss it. Enjoy!

What's on Ally's iPhone 6 right now!

My gold 64GB iPhone 6 is my daily driver and goes pretty much wherever I go. I'll start this off by saying that if you ask anyone that knows me personally, or even some of my colleagues, they'll all tell you that I'm a little over compulsive about being organized. At times, annoyingly so. And you probably could have guessed, my iPhone 6 is certainly no exception...
