August 20, 2017

The newest Android smartphone launched by Alcatel, the Idol 5S is now on sale on Amazon. The handset made its debut in the United States only last month, so it’s quite disconcerting to see this mid- to high-end smartphone being discounted earlier than usual.

How to download watchOS 4 beta 7 to your Apple Watch

August 20, 2017
Installing the watchOS 4 beta is more complex than an iOS or macOS beta, but it’s also for developers only.

There’s yet to be a public beta for watchOS the way there has been for iOS and macOS, and that’s okay — the process of installing the software is more complicated, and really meant for developers only. You need to install a certificate on your Apple Watch, then download the software to your iPhone running iOS 11 beta, transfer it across, and get it up and running. It’s not hard, but it does take patience and you may have to troubleshoot.

How the iMore team works on our iPhones, iPads, and Macs

August 20, 2017
The iMore team has a lot of favorite tech gadgets, but there are a few that are absolute must-haves in our daily lives.

Being in the tech industry, the iMore team loves gadgets. Most of us fill our living rooms with way too many accessories for fun and convenience. But, there are some gadgets that we just can’t live without. These are things we use daily to help us write, research, and exist in the tech world. This is how we work every day with our iPhones, iPads, Macs, and other tech accessories.


I have more of a studio than an office these days. Back shelves are Ikea. The top is boxes, next row is Lego Star Wars, Doctor Who, Marvel, and DC, next row is old gadgets, next row old gear. The standing desk is also Ikea. I have an old cheese grater Mac Pro that runs some stuff that still needs running. On top of it is the new Retina 5K iMac, a Magic Mouse 2 I never use, and a Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad I use constantly. Because of “the job” I have a bunch of Apple hardware…

How to download tvOS 11 beta 7 to your Apple TV

August 20, 2017
Installing the tvOS 11 beta is more complex than an iOS or macOS beta, but it’s also for developers only.

Apple hasn’t announced a public beta for tvOS the way the company has for iOS and macOS. That means until it is released to everyone this fall, it’s only available to developers. It also means installing it on the Apple TV (4th generation) is more complicated than a simple download and go. If you’re a developer and you’re having trouble getting the tvOS beta installed, here’s what you need to do.

Unlike Apple’s other operating systems, you can’t back up your Apple TV; as such, Apple offers two options for updating tvOS: over the air, which just updates the system; and via USB-C, which restores the device to its factory settings.

How to take photos of the Solar Eclipse with your phone

August 20, 2017
Looking to snap some stellar photos of the solar eclipse? Here’s everything you need to know!

It’s not every day that we get to see a total solar eclipse — and it’s especially not every day where everyone in North America can see it (especially if you’re in Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and North and South Carolina), along with chunks of South America, Africa, and Europe being able to see it as well.

It’s one thing to see an eclipse with your own eyes — JUST KIDDING! It’s actually never safe to look directly at the sun, except when it’s 100% blocked during the period of the eclipse known as totality. NASA does a really good job telling you about the different tools you can use to watch the eclipse on your own… but what if you want to shoot it?

Here’s how to take photos of the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21, 2017!

How to download and install macOS High Sierra beta 7 to your Mac

August 20, 2017
If you are a developer and want to know what to expect in macOS High Sierra, here is how to install the developer beta

macOS High Sierra is coming this fall with plenty of awesome new features that developers can take advantage of in their apps; as such, Apple is releasing early beta software so that developers can make their apps work seamlessly when the full operating system launches to the public.

Apple occasionally offers updates to iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS as closed developer previews or public betas for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac (sadly, no public beta for the Apple Watch). While the betas contain new features, they also contain pre-release bugs that can prevent the normal use of your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, or Mac, and are not intended for everyday use on a primary device. That’s why we strongly recommend staying away from developer previews unless you need them for software development, and using the public betas with caution. If you depend on you…

August 20, 2017
If you’re a developer looking to take a peek at iOS 11, here’s how to install the developer beta.

iOS 11 is on its way with new features, several that require lots of third-party developer input. As such, the company is releasing developer betas so that software engineers can get a head start on making great software for you.

How to make an archived backup of your iPhone or iPad

Before you begin, make sure you back up your iPhone or iPad. While the beta process is fairly straight forward, any time you make any significant change to your device you risk problems. And with your personal data, it’s always — always! — better to be safe than sorry. Even if you back up every night, you’ll want to make sure it’s absolutely up-to-date.
