Have you updated to iOS 7.1 yet?

Have you updated to iOS 7.1 yet?

It's been just over 48 hours since iOS 7.1 hit, so have you updated yet? A point update – no matter how much some of us are waiting on it – doesn't usually draw the same excitement as a full blown new iOS version, but there's no denying that a lot of us have been waiting on iOS 7.1. There will also be those folks who are happy enough to wait it out and see the feedback come in first before thinking about updating. So, which camp are you in?

Weekly photo contest: Portraits!!

If you look through the Camera Roll of your iPhone or iPad, I'd be willing to be that the most common subjects are people.

Take a great portrait shot either of yourself or of someone else! That's all there is to it!

iMore at Macworld|iWorld 2014 — Here's what's coming your way!

Peter Cohen and I will be at Macworld|iWorld 2014 from March 27-29. It takes place at Moscone North in San Francisco and once again promises to be the Apple community made manifest. The expo hall will be filled with app developers and accessory makers, the conference with instructional and informational sessions (I'll be doing a couple!), and the special events with music and a whole lot of merriment. In other words, if you can make it to SF, you'll want to make it for Macworld|iWorld!

iPhone 4 owners: Has iOS 7.1 improved performance?

Has iOS 7.1 improved performance on your iPhone 4?

One of the features Apple lists for the just-released iOS 7.1 software update is "Improved performance for iPhone 4". That's great since previously performance was bad enough it had many people desperate to downgrade. That's nothing new, of course. The bottom end of the upgrade list is often excruciating on the x.0 and picks up on the x.1 or x.2. So it was with the iPhone 3G in its day, now it is with the iPhone 4. So, is it really any better?

iOS 7.1: What did it fix for you and what's still broken?

iOS 7.1 is live for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and with it a whole bevy of fixes and additions. Since Apple makes updates so easy, and adoption rates are so high, that means many of you have likely taken the plunge already. It also means you've likely scoured through every change to find what's really been fixed and what still remains broken. There's no changelog or quality assurance in the world that can match millions of people hitting a new piece of software. And that's just what the iMore Forums are doing right now!

It's Daylight Saving Time again — Check your clocks and alarms!

If you're unlucky enough to live in one of the regions — like most of the United States and Canada — where spring means pushing the clocks forward an hour in what's called Daylight Savings Time but is better thought of as Lose an Hour of Sleep Night, then it's time once again to do just that. And because the iPhone and iPad have historically had as much trouble handling the change as we humans, you might want to make sure you give yourself a backup alarm backup for the evening and double-check your iOS time against some other source as soon as you wake up.

T-Mobile's free data roaming put to the test — is it good enough to get you by?

T-Mobile is currently providing 200MB of 2G EDGE data free for customers who travel — and roam — internationally. Yes, 200MB isn't much in our multi-GB world and EDGE is barely a trickle compared to the flood that is LTE. But, free. That means no costly data roaming plan or inconvenient SIM switching. Yet for some people the frustration that comes from low limits and slow speeds will more than outweigh any cost savings or convenience benefits. So, how do you know? Well, in our case we sent Phil Nickinson all the way to Spain to find out.

How do you protect your iPhones and iPads?

Almost everyone has been in this situation at one point or another. You pick up a new iPhone 5s or iPad Air, maybe a iPhone 5c or Retina iPad mini, you use it for a while, and then it starts to show signs of wear and tear. Maybe you banged it against the wall and got a little ding on it, maybe it was knocked out of your hand by a clumsy friend and fell to the floor. Whatever happened, you know the feeling of that first blemish — it sucks.
