Did you update to iOS 8?

Did you update to iOS 8?

The dust is starting to settle as the great iOS 8 update is now with us. Despite all of the issues with download queues, long install times and potentially having to clear out oodles of space on our devices to accept the OTA, update day has a very different level of importance for every different person. Some of us are hovering as it approaches 10 a.m. PDT ready to hit the button as soon as it appears, others point blank don't want it – or can't have it – and there are those, perhaps wise souls, who prefer to wait it out a few days and see what issues there may be lurking beneath the surface. So, which camp do you fall into?

App design walks the line between art and fashion, not unlike pop music

One year rich, skeuomorphic textures are all the rage, the next, flat designs and naked buttons. So are apps art or are they fashion? Are the made to stand the test of time to keep time with the latest trends? Or, like pop music, could they be both? My friend and frequent collaborator, Dave Wiskus has begun a new video series examining design and what it means in our daily lives.

The first episode, Rock Stars, is above and if you like it, you can subscribe to the rest via Better Elevation and check out his Patreon options.

Best iPhoneography of the week

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 did you think of the iPhone 6 event?

What did you think to the iPhone 6 event?

So, it came, it saw, it conquered and then it conquered again. The iPhone 6 event was one of Apple's most impressive on the device front in a while packing in two new phones and a first entry into the smartwatch space with the Apple Watch. We're just about beginning to catch our breath, so it's time to step back, take stock, and see what everyone thought of the actual event?

What do you want to see most from the iPhone 6 event?

What do you want to see most from the iPhone 6 event?

As we (im)patiently await the big iPhone 6 event to kick off later on today, let's think about what we're most looking forward to seeing. The leaks and rumors have been running wild in recent weeks suggesting 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones making their debut today alongside Apple's oft-rumored iWatch. While we're pretty sure this is an iPhone focused event, there's always room for "one more thing." So what do you most want to see today?

Homage to the Terminal

Craigh Hockenberry, writing on Furbo.org:

As much as I love them, these long "trick lists" on Stack Overflow have a problem: they're poorly organized with little narrative describing why you'd want to use a technique. This long homage to the command line is my attempt to remedy that situation.

Terminal is an incredibly powerful tool that the vast majority of Mac users ignore completely. Residing in the Mac's Utility folder, Terminal provides a command line interface for the Mac. Paired with the apps and tools you can use from the command line, you can do some truly remarkable things with it.

Whether you're a longtime Terminal aficionado, or someone who's always been curious to know more, it's well worth a read.
