An Apple customer's thoughts on Google I/O 2015

Apple customers can and do use many of Google's services, making us Google customers as well.

While Apple's WWDC is of little interest to hard-core Android customers, Google I/O can and often is of significant interest to Apple customers. It's where Google shows off its big new initiatives and previews updates for its existing services. Some years, those are blips on the radar, here for a moment, gone the next. Other years their scope and implications shake the world. This year, for me, fell somewhere in the middle. Google was restrained, relatively speaking, and focused. Yet as much as they acknowledged the need to shore up what came before, the company's focus is clearly on what's coming next. And that's worth a deeper discussion.

Google Photos may be free — but there's still a cost

Google Photos storage won't cost money, but you should know what you're signing up for.

Updated on 5/29 10AM ET to add information from Steven Levy's excellent interview with Google Vice President of Streams, Photos, and Sharing  Bradley Horowitz, and to add information about Google's high-quality photo pricing tiers.

Google announced its new Photos service at I/O today: It looks a lot like iCloud Photo Library, but with even more perks. Automatic slideshow movies! Insta-GIFs from burst photos! Interactive stories! You can automatically search for faces, places, and things without tagging! It syncs with iOS and the web! And, oh yeah — unlimited* (if your photos are 16MB or less) storage for free. What could be better?

Well, to start, it's important to know what "free" might actually cost you, and whether you're okay with that tradeoff.

How to arrange Glances on your Apple Watch

How to arrange Glances on your Apple Watch

Glances are convenient ways to find the information you want, when you want it. And part of that is organizing them the way you want them

Glances appear on your Apple Watch, from left to right, in the same order as they appear in the Apple Watch for iPhone app, from top to bottom. Settings can't move, so it's always first on the left — and top of the list. To move Glances to the left, move them higher on the list. To move them to the right, move them lower on the list. It's simple once you get the hang of it.

How to change what iPhone or iPad is used to share your location

If you use location sharing with family and friends, you'll want to make sure iOS is sharing from the right device.

There are lots of reasons you may want to share your location through the Messages app or Find My Friends. For example, sharing a location is a lot faster than manually typing out a location to someone. If you have more than one iOS device, maybe an iPhone and an iPad for example, you may want to change which one is used for default location sharing.
