Which iCloud services are you using?

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?

The Fitbit mobile app now lets you sync multiple trackers to your account

The Fitbit mobile app now lets you sync multiple trackers to your account

File this one under first-world problems but if you are like us and own multiple Fitbit trackers (collect them all!) you no longer have to decide which to wear. In a backend update, Fitbit has thrown the switch to let users synchronize multiple Fitbit Trackers to their account through the mobile app.

Previously, if you owned the more rugged and full-featured Surge and the leaner Charge HR, you would have to pair only one to your account. The other device would essentially be kicked out from tracking until you repaired it.

No Apple Watch mixing-and-matching come April 10 — collections are it

No Apple Watch mixing-and-matching come April 10 — collections are it

The Apple Online Store previews all of the Apple Watch case and band combinations, grouped into collections.

Despite that, some have hoped, come pre-order time, they'd still be able to to mix-and-match cases and bands to get any combination they liked, without having to buy any additional bands. Sadly not. As of right now, you will only be able to order one of the Apple Watches in the case and band pairs as presented in the collections, and that doesn't seem likely to change.

How the Apple Watch will be your personal trainer

How the Apple Watch will be your personal trainer

Information broker. Health tracker. Digital wallet. Communicator. Remote Control. It's all one product. It's the Apple Watch.

Each of those features — individually or in combination — appeal to different people. For some, the ability to track activity and heart rate to measure walking, running, and stair climbing; to log rowing machines and exercise bikes; and to be not only reminded to stand up and move around, but rewarded for it: This will all be especially compelling. In that role, the Apple Watch can not only help quantify our lives; it can become a virtual personal trainer.

A look back at Apple's last 12-inch laptop

A look back at Apple's last 12-inch laptop

The new MacBook isn't Apple's first 12-inch laptop. Look back at Apple's last 12-incher.

I'm really looking forward to the new MacBook for a whole host of reasons. The 12-inch Retina display is one of them. For Mac users of the current era, 12 inches sounds like an odd size — everything's either 11, 13 or 15 inches these days. But Apple's had that particular size in its roster before. The last time Apple made such a beast was a decade ago: The 2005 12-inch PowerBook G4 model was discontinued in 2006, as Apple migrated from PowerPC to Intel processors.
