Published on November 3, 2014 by

The upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, scripted by Aaron Sorkin, has taken a major blow today, as Christian Bale has reportedly dropped out of playing the lead role of the Apple co-founder.

On the desktop side, it unveiled OS X 10.10 Yosemite, and on the mobile side, we got to see iOS 8. Whilst over the past few years features from one operating system have reached the other, and vice versa, the two systems have always remained different. You do something on one device, and when you’re finished with that you pick up another device and do something else. No matter how similar the experiences became, there was always an odd jump between OS X and iOS.

Inter-app communication is a real thing in iOS 8

Published on June 4, 2014 by

Apple’s mobile operating system is now more powerful than ever, because iOS 8, which was unveiled at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference, now includes inter-app communication.

Find my iPhone in iOS 8 has a new feature that will help make it easier for users to find their lost or stolen iOS device.

AirPlay from iOS 8 to Apple TV doesn’t need Wi-Fi anymore

Published on June 3, 2014 by

AirPlay peer-to-peer iOS 8 Apple TV

When AirPlaying content from an iOS device to an Apple TV, it was required that both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, and then the content is streamed over the network. In iOS 8, a Wi-Fi network is no longer needed for AirPlay to work, and instead a peer-to-peer connection is used, similar to how AirDrop works. The device connects directly to the Apple TV, which could speed up connections.
