Apple Watch, WatchKit, and Accessibility

Ever since rumors started swirling that Apple was working on a wearable device, I've often thought about what such a device would mean for people with disabilities. My curiosity is so high, in fact, that I've even written about the possibilities. Make no mistake, for users with disabilities such as myself, a wearable like the Apple Watch brings with it usage and design paradigms that, I think, are of even greater impact than what the iPhone in one's pocket has to offer.

NSFW: Special Magenta Snowflake

NSFW is a weekly op-ed column in which I talk about whatever's on my mind. Sometimes it'll have something to do with the technology we cover here on iMore; sometimes it'll be whatever pops into my head. Your questions, comments and observations are welcome.

Every few weeks, T-Mobile USA tries to shake the cage for attention with its "Uncarrier" announcements. It did so this week, reminding everyone that T-Mobile is a very special magenta-covered snowflake. It's rubbing a bit thin on me. Read on for more on T-Mobile, Continuity complaints, and Sony musings in this week's NSFW.

Disconnecting from iCloud is scarier than it should be

As a long time user of Apple's cloud services dating back to iTools (and even dabbling with AppleLink back in the day), I just assumed that most people used iCloud. Until I started working at an Apple reseller and helping people with their Macs and iOS devices. And that's when I discovered that a lot of people don't. What's more, if they do start using iCloud and later change their minds, Apple makes decoupling from the service absolutely terrifying.

What's on Ally's Yosemite dock right now!

The Mac is still the most important device in my workflow. I depend on it each and every day to get my job done here at iMore. From article ideas to rough drafts to editing photography, my iMac and my MacBook Air are indispensable. Of course, the machine itself isn't what drives my workflow, it's the apps. I've already given you a look at what's on both my iPhone 6 and my iPad Air 2, so here's a look at my Mac dock, and the apps I use on a daily basis!

iOS 9 wish-list: VIP for Contacts, not just Mail

Mail's VIP feature is great. I can "star" the people most important to me, thus enabling sound and Lock screen notifications solely for them. It's a great way to make sure I'm alerted when I get email that matters, and avoid being interrupted when it doesn't. My problem? VIP currently only exists as a feature in the Mail app. There's no way to do the same for Messages or any other communication app I have installed.

I'd love to see VIP moved from Mail's settings to Contacts proper, so that I can make sure the people who are literally "very important" get through more easily, no matter how they choose to communicate with me. And it'd be great if it happened with iOS 9.

Handoff versus iCloud sync, explained

Handoff is the cornerstone of Apple's Continuity feature — a way to make your iPhone, iPad, and Mac integrate and work better together. It lets you start an activity on one device and pick up right where you left off on another device. But... sync has done that for years, hasn't it? What makes Handoff better and more convenient? Let's break it down.
