How to stop remote images from loading in Mail for iPhone and iPad

If you want to make sure your email stays as private as possible, disabling remote images is a good idea.

Just like disabling remote image loading on the Mac prevents companies and spammers alike from detecting when you opened an email, and potentially collecting other information, preventing them from loading on your iPhone and iPad makes sure you are protected against snooping on all your devices.

We need VIP for all messaging, not just Mail

VIP — very important person — lets you create a separate group and notification priority for the contacts that matter the most to you. Sadly, it's currently limited to Mail.

*Update: Now that Apple Watch has shipped, having VIP as a system-level feature that not only Mail but Messages, Phone, FaceTime, and even App Store communications apps can filter through feels even more essential. * Mail's VIP feature is great. I can "star" the people most important to me, thus enabling sound, vibration, 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. Sadly, 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.

For iOS 9, I'd love to see VIP moved from Mail's settings to the system level for 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.

I'd love to see Handoff for iTunes in iOS 9

One of Continuity's best features is Handoff — the ability to push not just data but state between iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Using Handoff, you can start an email on your iPhone, sit down at your Mac, tap an icon, and finish right where you left off. You can start reading a website on your Mac and then grab your iPad, swipe, and plop down to keep reading on your couch. As long as you're logged into the same Apple ID, and in proximity, everything you do can be started, continued, or finished on all of your devices. Well, not everything — there's currently no Handoff support for iTunes. And I'd love it if iOS 9 changed that.

Coachella's love affair with iOS

Three quarters of Coachella attendees are using the app, and 90 percent of them are using it on iOS.

Coachella — more properly the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival — is an annual celebration held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. The Coachella app lets attendees view the lineup, add favorites, create schedules, and even see Twitter and Facebook social activity related to the event. And over two thirds of the people there were doing just that on an iPhone or iPad.

iOS apps are secure — it's 'security' advertorials that remain a threat

Another day, another CEO from a "security software" company pens a "guest editorial" saying Apple needs to open up to — guess what? — "security software".

Just like the last time, the premise is self-serving, the headline spit-take inducing, and it's absolutely not worth rewarding negative attention seeking with attention. But because every time something like this posted, we get contacted by concerned readers, some of the fear-mongering needs to once again be addressed.
