Apple Watch as MagicBand for the real world

Disney's MagicBand makes the theme park more than just fun, it makes it convenient.

That feature — the same killer feature the Apple Watch promises — is what makes it so compelling. Like the MagicBand, in many ways the Apple Watch won't just offer an easier experience, it will offer a better one. Yet where the Apple Watch has faced fear-mongering and sensationalism in the mainstream media for mostly made-up concerns, the MagicBand, despite its tracking and personal information projection, has been almost universally praised.

What would you change about iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus?

If Apple sticks to pattern, we've got a similarly designed iPhones 6s coming our way this year, and a redesigned iPhones 7 coming our way next.

It's been six months since the launch of the current generation iPhones, so it seems like as good a time as any to start dreaming about the next. From 2007 to now we've gone from 3.5 to 5.5 inches, 480x320 to 1920x1080, EDGE to LTE-Advanced, dumb mics and buttons to Siri and Touch ID, and much, much more. Where could we go next?

Force Touch is going to do incredible things for accessibility

I'm really excited about Force Touch for a bunch of reasons. But where I think it's going to really succeed? Accessibility.

I've been thinking about Force Touch almost non-stop since the Apple event a few weeks ago — what it means for Macs now, what it could mean for the future of software development, and how it might change artistry on the iPad. I've also been musing on what it could bring to accessibility in computing.

Which iCloud services are you using?

iCloud offers numerous services, including mail, contacts, and calendars, iCloud Drive, iCloud Photo Library, Backup, iCloud Keychain, and Find my iPhone.

Which iCloud features do you use?

If you have an Apple ID, including an iTunes account, you have an iCloud account. You just have to use it. Since you can toggle each and every iCloud feature on or off on in your iPhone or iPad Settings, or your Mac System Preferences, the question then becomes, which iCloud services are you using?

Is iCloud handling your mail and syncing your contacts, calendars, reminders, Safari bookmarks, notes, Passbook passes, and other personal data? Is iCloud Drive storing your files and making them available on all your devices? Is iCloud Photo Library keeping all your photos available on every device? Is iCloud Keychain handling your passwords and credit card information? Is Find my iPhone tracking your iPhone, iPad, and/or Mac in case you lose it or it gets stolen?

How Apple has to teach people to love the watch

One of the challenges the Apple faces is a generation of people who, in part because of the advent of cellphones, simply don't wear watches.

To get people to start wearing an Apple Watch, the company is going to have to present them with either a compelling feature or, more likely, a set of features that, when combined together, become compelling.
