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.

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.

How to type Spock's vulcan salute emoji with your iPhone or iPad

How do you type Mr. Spock's live long and prosper (llap) Vulcan salute emoji on your iPhone or iPad?

After posting the iOS 8.3 emoji keyboard how-to earlier, of course this was the question that quickly flooded my inbox. It's part of the same new unicode emoji set Apple has added to iOS 8.3 and OS X 10.10.3, so if you've updated to one or both of those, you can see it. The problem is, Apple hasn't yet added it to the emoji keyboard, so you can't type it. Unless you're logical about it...

How to use the new, diverse emoji keyboard on iPhone and iPad

As part of Apple's ongoing efforts to address diversity, iOS 8.3 includes a much wider array of cultures and ethnicities for face and hand symbols on iPhone and iPad.

Each also offers five alternate skin tone options based on the Fitzpatrick scale for standard dermatological representation, as adopted by the Unicode Consortium.
