How to Use iTunes Match [Mac Blog]

Today, 07:31 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
For $24.99 per year, or about two dollars per month, <a href="https://www.apple.co...-match/">iTunesMatch</a> keeps all of your music in iCloud so you can access any song at any time from any device instead of picking and downloading your favorite playlists every time you sync your device. Plus, Apple will provide you with high quality playback using 256 Kbps AAC DRM free versions of your music, even if your original copy was lower quality. <br/> <br/> <img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443232" src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/How-To-iTunes-Match1-800x622.png" alt="How To iTunes Match1" width="800" height="622" /> <br/> Some users may not be entirely familiar with hoe the service works, so we've put together this tutorial that explains the process of how to subscribe to and use iTunes Match on your computer and iOS devices. <br/> <br/> <h2>How iTunes Match Works</h2> <br/> In November 2011, <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2011/11/14/apple-launches-itunes-match-with-release-of-itunes-10-5-1/">Apple released iTunes Match</a> in the United States, gradually expanding availability over time and now offering the subscription service in over 115 countries. The service is designed to let you store up to 25,000 songs in iCloud that can be accessed from any Apple device at any time. Music you have purchased through the iTunes Store does not count against your maximum capacity. <br/> <br/> Every song that you've added to your music library in iTunes via CD or digital download, including music from the iTunes Store or another source, can be stored in iTunes Match. <br/> <br/> Once you have subscribed to the service, iTunes determines which songs in your collection are available in the iTunes Store, and those songs are automatically added to iCloud. Songs that don’t exist in the iTunes Store already are uploaded to iCloud from your computer. Once songs are made available via iCloud, you can play back music on any device that your Apple ID is connected to. Up to 10 devices are supported. <br/> <br/> On a PC or Mac, music is streamed over the air, although you can download songs to your computer by selecting the iCloud download button. On iOS, songs download to your device as they are played, and you can also manually download music by tapping the iCloud download button. You can only stream songs on Apple TV. <br/> <!--more--> <br/> <h2>How to Match or Upload Songs to iTunes Match</h2> <br/> After you have subscribed to iTunes Match, the service will scan your device and automatically add any music that is already available through the iTunes Store. It is similar showing up with your CD collection at a friend’s house and he tells you he already has 89 out of 100 of your albums. Those songs are just there, waiting for you to play. <br/> <br/> The other songs will be uploaded from your music library in iTunes to iCloud. This can take some time, depending on how many songs must be uploaded. Once uploaded, they won't have to be added again, so even if you turn off iTunes Match on one of your devices, it will take less than a minute to add iTunes Match back on it. <br/> <br/> Any time you add new music, whether from a CD, through the iTunes Store, or from another digital download, it will automatically be uploaded or added to iTunes Match. Once synced, you will be able to access the new music across all of your devices. <br/> <br/> The first thing you will need to do is turn on and subscribe to iTunes Match. <br/> <br/> <b>On Mac or PC</b> <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Open iTunes and select "iTunes Store" from the options at the top of the window.</li> <br/> <li>Select "iTunes Match" from the menu on the right side of the iTunes window.</li> <br/> <li>Click on the "Subscribe for $24.99 per year" button under iTunes Match. Pricing and currency varies from country to country, but the signup process is the same.</li> <br/> <li>Enter your Apple ID and password to confirm your purchase.</li> <br/> <li>Wait for iTunes Match to finish scanning your music library and adding songs to iCloud.</li> <br/> </ol><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443234" src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/How-To-iTunes-Match3-800x549.png" alt="How To iTunes Match3" width="800" height="549" /> <br/> Once you have subscribed to iTunes Match, every computer with iTunes that your Apple ID is associated with will be able to access all of the same music. Follow the instructions above to access your iTunes Match music on additional computers, but during step 3, instead of clicking "Subscribe," you will be prompted to "Add This Computer." <br/> <br/> <b>On iOS</b> <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Open the Settings App.</li> <br/> <li>Select iTunes & App Store from the list of available options.</li> <br/> <li>Select "Subscribe to iTunes Match."</li> <br/> <li>Select "Subscribe to iTunes Match for $24.99 per year."</li> <br/> <li>Enter your Apple ID and password to confirm your purchase.</li> <br/> </ol> <br/> <img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-443241" src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/How-To-iTunes-Match8.jpg" alt="How To iTunes Match8" width="440" height="676" /> <br/> If you have already subscribed to iTunes Match from a different device, instead of seeing "Subscribe to iTunes Match" in step 3, you will see a toggle switch to turn the feature on. <br/> <br/> <h2>Streaming or Downloading Music Using iTunes Match</h2> <br/> Once you have subscribed and your devices are activated, iTunes Match will match or upload all of your music. You will then notice that all of your songs have a small cloud icon next to them. You can either stream your music in iCloud using Wi-Fi or Cellular or download songs from iCloud onto your device for offline listening. <br/> <br/> <img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443237" src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/How-To-iTunes-Match6-800x622.png" alt="How To iTunes Match6" width="800" height="622" /> <br/> To stream music find the album, artist, or playlist you wish to listen to. Then, tap the song you wish to hear and it will begin playing. <br/> <br/> To download music onto your computer or iOS device, tap the cloud icon next to a song or album. This will put the selected songs onto your device so you can listen to them without the need of a Wi-Fi or cellular connection. <br/> <br/> <img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-443240" src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/How-To-iTunes-Match9-e1427147082485.png" alt="How To iTunes Match9" width="439" height="507" /> <br/> Incidentally, iTunes Match is defaulted to only play when you are on a Wi-Fi network. This restriction is in place to protect you from accidentally going over your Cellular limit. However, you can turn on the ability to use cellular data to stream iTunes Match. <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Open the Settings app on your iOS device.</li> <br/> <li>Select iTunes & App Store from the list of available options.</li> <br/> <li>Turn on Use Cellular Data by tapping the toggle switch.</li> <br/> </ol><h2>Troubleshooting</h2> <br/> <strong>Cannot Play Back Songs</strong> <br/> The first thing you should do is to ensure all of your music is completely added to iTunes Match. If it is still being added, some songs may not play back. You can temporarily disable iTunes Match on your device and then re-enable it after iTunes Match has completed its uploading process. <br/> <br/> There could be an issue with your Internet connection. Make sure your Wi-Fi network is working properly. If you are not connected to Wi-Fi and want to play music using Cellular Data, make sure the feature is turned on by following the instructions above. <br/> <br/> <strong>Missing Songs</strong> <br/> Due to DRM issues, some songs may appear grayed out, or not show up on one of your devices, even though they are in iTunes Match. You may need to authorize your computer to play those songs. <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Open iTunes.</li> <br/> <li>Click on Store in the menu bar.</li> <br/> <li>Select "Authorize this Computer."</li> <br/> <li>Enter your Apple ID and password.</li> <br/> <li>Click Authorize.</li> <br/> <li>Click on Store again.</li> <br/> <li>Select "Update iTunes Match."</li> <br/> </ol> <br/> <b>Missing Album Artwork</b><img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/How-to-iTunes-Match-1-250x384.jpg" alt="How to iTunes Match 1" width="250" height="384" class="alignright size-medium wp-image-444013" /> <br/> If songs in your music library have artwork that is missing when you download them onto another device, try these instructions to restore the images:<ol> <br/> <li>Open iTunes on your computer.</li> <br/> <li>Right-click or control-click on an album that is missing artwork.</li> <br/> <li>Select "Get Album Artwork" from the list of available options.</li> <br/> <li>Click on Store in the menu bar.</li> <br/> <li>Select "Update iTunes Match."</li> <br/> <li>Once iTunes Match has finished updating, launch the Music app on your device.</li> <br/> <li>Find the songs that are missing artwork and delete them by swiping to the left on those songs.</li> <br/> <li>After deleting the songs, download them again from iCloud by tapping the download icon.</li> <br/> </ol><strong>Duplicate Playlists</strong> <br/> If you see playlists displayed twice on your iOS device, you will probably need to delete duplicates on iTunes manually. <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Open iTunes on your computer.</li> <br/> <li>Select the Playlists tab in iTunes.</li> <br/> <li>Select the playlist you wish to remove from the list on the left side of the window</li> <br/> <li>Right-click or control-click on the selected playlist.</li> <br/> <li>Select Delete from the available options.</li> <br/> <li>Open the Music app on your iOS device. It should be gone. However, it may take a few minutes to remove if your Internet connection is slow.</li> <br/> </ol>If you have any other issues or problems using iTunes Match, leave us a comment and we and our forum community will see what we can do to help.<img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/35070/f/648326/s/44f2c4a4/sc/28/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851040519/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2c4a4/sc/28/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851040519/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2c4a4/sc/28/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851040519/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2c4a4/sc/28/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851040519/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2c4a4/sc/28/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851040519/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2c4a4/sc/28/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851040519/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2c4a4/sc/28/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851040519/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2c4a4/sc/28/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851040519/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2c4a4/sc/28/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/224851040519/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2c4a4/sc/28/a2t.img" border="0"/><div class="feedflare">

Review: PowerSkin’s Spare gives iPhone 6 users a modest 2...

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<p><img title="Review: PowerSkin's Spare gives iPhone 6 users a modest 2200mAh of extra battery case juice" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-372111" src="https://9to5mac.file...pg?w=704&h=470"alt="spare-1" width="704" height="470" /></p>
<p>Since late last year, <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...ery-cases/">thebest iPhone 6 battery cases</a> have generally included two things that iPhone 6 users now take for granted: enough spare power for at least one complete recharge, plus adequate coverage for the iPhone’s top, bottom, and back, if not its sides. <strong>PowerSkin</strong> has gone in a somewhat different direction with <a href="http://www.amazon.com/PowerSkin-Spare-Rechargable-Battery-iPhone/dp/B00SZD2JHG/ref=sr_1_6?sr=8-6&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;keywords=powerskin%2Bspare&amp;tag=trust925-20&amp;qid=1427734823"><strong>Spare for iPhone 6</strong> ($80)</a>, a battery sled that caters to iPhone users who want less of everything. With a small 2200mAh cell inside, it’s the lowest-capacity battery case I’ve seen for the iPhone 6, and also offers the least body coverage, but sells for about the same price as more capacious and protective rivals.</p>
<p>Lightweight and marginally easier to pack in some bags than some rival battery cases, Spare is here for users who want a partial iPhone 6 recharge and anti-drop protection, but no anti-scratch safety. It’s offered in silver, gold, or space gray, <a href="http://www.amazon.co...7380">currentlyranging from $70-$72</a> based on your color preference. PowerSkin claims that it will deliver a 100% iPhone 6 recharge, but our testing found otherwise…<br /><span id="more-372109"></span><div class="inlinead"><a href="http://rss.buysellads.com/click.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a715efcc79f88&a=1427746588&c=1772028164" target="_blank"><img src="http://rss.buysellads.com/img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a715efcc79f88&a=1427746588&c=1772028164" border="0" alt="" /></a></div></p>

<p><img title="Review: PowerSkin's Spare gives iPhone 6 users a modest 2200mAh of extra battery case juice" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-372113" src="https://9to5mac.file...pg?w=704&h=470"alt="spare-3" width="704" height="470" /></p>
<p>Unlike most of the matte black battery cases I’ve previously reviewed, Spare’s design mimics the iPhone 6’s. The majority of the case is nicely color-matched metallic plastic, interrupted by two matte bars on the back in roughly the same places as Apple’s antennas. By comparison, the case’s front has a glossy finish, a material that could have looked cheap, but doesn’t draw undue attention since there’s so little frontage to be seen. While most iPhone 6 battery cases provide top and side coverage, PowerSkin leaves those portions of the device uncovered, instead opting for oversized corner grips that extend a millimeter beyond the iPhone’s screen. This enables the corners to absorb shock from drops, as well as to keep the iPhone firmly in place.</p>
<p><img title="Review: PowerSkin's Spare gives iPhone 6 users a modest 2200mAh of extra battery case juice" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-372112" src="https://9to5mac.file...pg?w=704&h=470"alt="spare-2" width="704" height="470" /></p>
<p>Beyond limiting the case’s coverage, PowerSkin was somewhat sparing with Spare’s pack-ins. Although a micro-USB cable is included for recharging, no extension cable is packed in to provide easy access to the iPhone 6’s recessed headphone port hole. These little extenders are cheap and fairly common, but you’ll need to grab one on your own if you’re using a headphone plug that’s larger than Apple’s super-svelte connectors.</p>
<p><img title="Review: PowerSkin's Spare gives iPhone 6 users a modest 2200mAh of extra battery case juice" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-372114" src="https://9to5mac.file...pg?w=704&h=470"alt="spare-4" width="704" height="470" /></p>
<p>From a performance standpoint, Spare is underpowered relative to other iPhone 6 battery cases I’ve tested. Four power indicators on the back glow blue as the case itself is charging, but remain off while an iPhone’s recharging inside, unless you press a circular button to indicate the remaining power. PowerSkin promises that Spare’s 2200mAh cell will achieve a 100% recharge of the iPhone, which was hard to take seriously since rivals such as <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...-6/">OtterBox’sResurgence</a> just barely hit the 100% mark with 2600mAh cells. In my testing, Spare fell short, bringing a dead iPhone 6 back to only 83% before dying. That’s about what I would have expected from a 2200mAh battery, but there was always the chance that PowerSkin had some super-efficient charging circuit (or actually larger cell) inside. Clearly, that wasn’t the case with Spare.</p>
<p><img title="Review: PowerSkin's Spare gives iPhone 6 users a modest 2200mAh of extra battery case juice" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-372115" src="https://9to5mac.file...pg?w=704&h=470"alt="spare-5" width="704" height="470" /></p>
<p>Having <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...ases/">reviewedso many other, more powerful iPhone 6 battery cases</a>, I’d say that Spare would make the most sense at a markedly lower price point than its increasingly numerous rivals. Between its so-so 2200mAh capacity and limited device protection, there’s not enough here to justify either the $80 MSRP or the current $70+ prices available online. The same dollars (or fewer) can buy a much more protective and higher-capacity <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Incipio-offGRID-Express-Carrying-iPhone/dp/B00RZV2MT4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1421432003&amp;s=wireless&amp;keywords=offgrid%252Bexpress&amp;tag=trust925-20&amp;sr=1-2">Incipio offGRID Express</a>, just to name the best of the other options I’ve tested. Even PowerSkin’s Lightning-equipped case-free version, <a href="http://www.amazon.com/PowerSkin-Attachable-Battery-iPhone-6Plus/dp/B00RMPCALS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;sr=1-1&amp;s=wireless&amp;keywords=pop%2527n%2B3&amp;tag=trust925-20&amp;qid=1427740060">PoP’n 3</a>, offers higher battery capacity for <a href="http://www.amazon.com/PowerSkin-Attachable-Battery-iPhone-6Plus/dp/B00RMPCALS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;sr=1-1&amp;s=wireless&amp;keywords=pop%2527n%2B3&amp;tag=trust925-20&amp;qid=1427740060">only $55</a>. But if Spare’s price falls, as most of its competitors have, it may be worth a second look.</p>

Review: The BrydgeAir Keyboard Turns Your iPad Air 2 Into...

Today, 06:40 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
After we published our review of the <a href="http://www.macrumors...ir-2/">ClamCasePro keyboard for the iPad Air 2</a>, some of our readers suggested that we take a look at other iPad keyboards available on the market. We decided to take <em>MacRumors</em> readers up on that suggestion, and over the next few weeks, we'll be looking at several keyboards designed for Apple's newest tablet, the iPad Air 2. <br/> <br/> We're kicking things off with a review of the <a href="http://www.brydgekeyboards.com/products/brydgeair_silver?variant=964740541">BrydgeAir keyboard</a>, which is able to work with both the original iPad Air and the iPad Air 2. Much like the ClamCase Pro we previously looked at, the all-aluminum BrydgeAir is designed to turn the iPad into a miniature MacBook. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/brydgeairkeyboard-800x600.jpg" alt="OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443867" /> <br/> At $169, the BrydgeAir is one of the more expensive iPad keyboards on the market, but that price point comes with some perks not found in many cheaper options -- quality aluminum construction, a fluid 180 degree hinge, built-in dual stereo speakers, and backlit keys. <br/> <!--more--> <br/> <h2>What's in the Box and Setup</h2> <br/> The BrydgeAir comes in a sleek iPad-style cardboard box that contains the keyboard itself, a black USB to micro-USB cable used for charging and a set of extra pads that are designed to make it fit the iPad Air 2. <br/> <br/> BrydgeAir has designed the keyboard to be compatible with both the iPad Air and the iPad Air 2, and the hinges that hold the iPad in place need extra lining to keep the iPad Air 2 securely in place because it's thinner than the first iPad Air. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/brydgeairwhatsinthebox-800x600.jpg" alt="OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443868" /> <br/> Setting it up for the iPad Air 2 involves carefully removing the existing silicone shims, as BrydgeAir calls them, and replacing them with new ones that are thicker. The instructions said to "make sure there was no remaining glue or residue on the bare hinge" after pulling off the old adhesive shims, but there was no way to get the remaining glue off of the hinges. <br/> <br/> We were disappointed that this step was not done by BrydgeAir, as the need to remove the existing set of shims and add a new one seems to compromise the stickiness of the second set of shims. Lining up the new shims and placing them on is a frustrating process right out of the box. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/brydgeairhinge-800x599.jpg" alt="OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" width="800" height="599" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443869" /> <br/> The keyboard pairs to the iPad like any other keyboard. Flick on the power button on the bottom, open the Settings menu, tap the keyboard's pairing button next to the power button, and it's automatically detected and pairs with a tap. The built-in speakers need to be paired separately by holding the speaker pairing button, also located next to the power button. <br/> <br/> <h2>Design</h2> <br/> The BrydgeAir is made from a single piece of aluminum and can be ordered in silver, gold, or space gray to match the design of the iPad. It consists of a keyboard with two hinged silicone-lined tabs at the top to hold the iPad in place, rather than being a full clamshell case like the ClamCase Pro. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/brydgeairnexttoipad-800x262.jpg" alt="OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" width="800" height="262" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443870" /> <br/> Each of the tabs lines up with the iPad's screen, and holds it securely in place while the keyboard is in use. As mentioned above, the tab lining needs to be swapped out before the keyboard can be used with the iPad Air 2, but once the thicker lining is in place, the iPad fits into the tabs securely. <br/> <br/> The hinges rotate 180 degrees, which means the iPad can be placed into several different viewing positions from all the way closed (forwards) to bent flat (backwards). Because it folds closed, the keyboard serves as a cover for the iPad display when shut, but there's no protection for the back of the tablet. The BrydgeAir is landscape only, like many keyboards for the iPad Air 2. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/brydgeairclosed-800x300.jpg" alt="OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" width="800" height="300" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443871" /> <br/> We traveled with the BrydgeAir in a bag next to an aluminum MacBook, and that caused the hinges to become scratched and discolored, but the aluminum of the keyboard itself was fine. <br/> <br/> Since the iPad is only held in place with these silicone-lined tabs, it takes just a few seconds to stick the iPad in the BrydgeAir or remove it to use without the keyboard case. With some other keyboard cases, it can be a chore to remove the iPad when you only need the tablet function, but that's not a problem with the BrydgeAir. <br/> <br/> Because the keyboard and the iPad match so well, the BrydgeAir makes the iPad look like a mini MacBook. It's a heavy keyboard that weighs over a pound (more than the iPad Air 2), but that weight is important because it makes sure that the BrydgeAir doesn't shift and move while it's being used. <br/> <br/> The weight of the keyboard balances out the weight of the iPad, so it never feels like the iPad is in danger of tipping over when using the keyboard. It's also stable on a desk or in a lap, making it perfect for typing while watching television, on an airplane, or in other situations where you may not have a hard surface to work with. One quick note -- due to the way the iPad fits in the BrydgeAir, it's difficult to swipe upwards on the screen to access the Control Center. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/brydgeairthickness-800x341.jpg" alt="OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" width="800" height="341" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443872" /> <br/> On the bottom of the BrydgeAir keyboard, there are four rubber feet to ensure stability on a desk, and two rubber bumpers on the front area to keep the iPad screen from touching the aluminum. The back edge near the hinge also includes two built-in speaker openings, while the other side includes buttons to turn the keyboard on and off, activate Bluetooth, and turn on the case's speakers. <br/> <br/> <h2>The Keys</h2> <br/> The BrydgeAir's keys feel similar to the keys on a MacBook and are very much comparable to the keys on the ClamCase Pro, but when comparing to a MacBook, it's important to note that the spacing isn't quite the same. <br/> <br/> The BrydgeAir is more compact than a MacBook keyboard so the keys are slightly closer together. It's not too difficult to adjust to the smaller spacing, however, and our typing speeds on the BrydgeAir were similar to the typing speeds we were able to obtain on similar keyboards for the iPad. The BrydgeAir also doesn't have the same key travel as the keys on a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro so it's not as "clicky" as a MacBook keyboard, but the keys still feel nice and springy under the fingers. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/brydgeairkeys-800x600.jpg" alt="OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443873" /> <br/> One of the best things about the BrydgeAir's keys is the backlighting. There's an LED panel underneath the keyboard that lights up the keys, making this one of the best iPad keyboards for use in the dark. The lights are controlled by a key on the keyboard, and there are three different brightness settings to suit multiple lighting situations. Many cheaper keyboards don't offer backlighting, and even some of the more expensive options, like the ClamCase Pro, don't have that feature. <br/> <br/> Like many keyboards for the iPad, the BrydgeAir has a row of keys at the top of the keyboard that control functions specific to Apple's tablet. There are buttons for going straight to the home screen, locking the iPad, changing the screen brightness, opening up search, activating the on-screen keyboard, changing the keyboard language, controlling the volume, and controlling media. <br/> <br/> <h2>Other Features</h2> <br/> The BrydgeAir keyboard's unique feature is its built-in speakers, which can be used instead of the iPad's speakers. Pairing speakers and the keyboard at the same time via Bluetooth drains a decent amount of battery life and the value that the speakers add over the iPad's own built-in speakers is questionable. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/brydgeairspeakers-800x600.jpg" alt="brydgeairspeakers" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443876" /> <br/> BrydgeAir's speakers are louder than the iPad's built-in speakers, but there didn't seem to be a noticeable difference in sound quality. The speakers are located at the back of the keyboard so sound is still directed away from the user, which doesn't seem like much of an improvement compared to using the iPad's own sound. <br/> <br/> To preserve battery when not in use, the speakers can be turned off by holding down the speaker button on the bottom of the keyboard for four seconds. Turning them on again is done the same way. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/brydgeaircontrols-800x600.jpg" alt="brydgeaircontrols" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443877" /> <br/> With the speakers and backlighting turned on, the BrydgeAir's battery lasted for approximately two weeks of regular use, but without the speakers and backlighting, it should be much longer. The BrydgeAir website says the battery lasts for three months. There's no way to tell what the battery level is at unless it's running low, which is a bit of a negative. When low, the backslash key will flash blue. <br/> <br/> <h2>Who's it For?</h2> <br/> If you're looking for an iPad keyboard that will let you type nearly as fast as you can type on a MacBook Air or Pro, the BrydgeAir is a good option. It has a solid build quality that outshines most of the other iPad keyboards on the market, but keep in mind -- this is a heavy keyboard. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/brydgeairsideview-800x600.jpg" alt="OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" width="800" height="600" class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-443874" /> <br/> The BrydgeAir is going to add a pound of weight to your iPad, so it's not the best option for frequent travel. Unfortunately, the speakers seem like more of a gimmick than a truly useful feature, but the backlit keys and the overall design of the keyboard make up for it. For those who don't mind the weight, the BrydgeAir is a keyboard that looks and feels worth its premium price tag. If you're looking for a keyboard that's versatile, easy to use, simple to remove, and has MacBook-style qualities, you won't go wrong with the BrydgeAir. <br/> <br/> <strong>Pros:</strong> <br/> <ul> <br/> <li>Solid construction</li> <br/> <li>Balanced weight</li> <br/> <li>Hinge for multiple viewing angles</li> <br/> <li>Backlit keys</li> <br/> <li>MacBook-style key spacing and feel</li> <br/> </ul> <br/> <strong>Cons:</strong> <br/> <ul> <br/> <li>It's heavier than the iPad and not great for travel</li> <br/> <li>Speakers more gimmicky than actually useful</li> <br/> <li>Setting it up for the iPad Air 2 is a hassle</li> <br/> <li>Expensive</li> <br/> </ul> <br/> <h2>How to Buy</h2> <br/> The BrydgeAir for the iPad Air and iPad Air 2 can be <a href="http://www.brydgekeyboards.com/products/brydgeair_silver">purchased from the BrydgeAir website</a> for $169. The site also sells iPad keyboards for older versions of the iPad.<img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/35070/f/648326/s/44f2b741/sc/15/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851038729/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2b741/sc/15/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851038729/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2b741/sc/15/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851038729/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2b741/sc/15/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851038729/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2b741/sc/15/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851038729/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2b741/sc/15/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851038729/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2b741/sc/15/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851038729/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2b741/sc/15/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851038729/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2b741/sc/15/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/224851038729/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2b741/sc/15/a2t.img" border="0"/><div class="feedflare">

iPad Pro Dummy Points Towards Dual Lightning Ports or USB...

Today, 05:36 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Images of what appear to be a mockup version of the upcoming larger-screened "iPad Pro" depict either a secondary Lightning port or a USB-C port on one side of the device, suggesting it could potentially have multiple methods of charging and/or the ability to support accessories like keyboards and mice. The pictures, which show the mystery port, a headphone jack/speakers, and the camera, originated on microblogging site <a href="http://weibo.com/397...Cb08vgrCt">SinaWeibo</a> and were shared by Italian site <a href="http://apple.hdblog.it/2015/03/30/Il-presunto-iPad-Pro-di-Apple-mostrato-in-alcune-immagini-quotleakedquot/"><em>HDBlog</em></a>. <br/> <br/> Case manufacturers and other accessory makers often create dummy models of upcoming Apple devices to get an early start on the development process, and the tablet pictured in the photos is likely one of these mockups. Most of these models are based on rumors and leaked schematics, and while they're frequently accurate, there have been errors in dummy models for past devices. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/ipadprodummy1.jpg" alt="ipadprodummy1" width="534" height="333" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-444018" /> <br/> The port on the left side of the device in the images does line up with a <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/01/29/image-of-first-ipad-pro-case/">previously leaked iPad Pro case</a> that had an opening on the left side believed to be for a SIM card tray, but the presence of a side port was <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2014/11/28/ipad-air-plus-june-april/">not seen in schematics</a> shared by Japanese magazine <em>Mac Fan</em> last November. Those schematics may have been inaccurate or out of date, as rumors have suggested Apple is still working on ironing out the tablet's features ahead of its release. <br/> <br/> Given the design similarities between a Lightning port and a USB-C port, it is not entirely clear what function the extra port serves, but a recent rumor from <em>The Wall Street Journal</em> pointed towards the the <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/03/05/ipad-pro-usb/">possible inclusion of USB 3.0 ports</a> on the iPad Pro, potentially allowing the device to connect to a keyboard or mouse. <br/> <br/> Aside from the Lightning port, the other images shared on Weibo show a rear camera with light sensor and microphone, and a headphone jack adjacent to a row of speakers. Rumors have suggested the iPad Pro will have speakers and microphones at the top and bottom edges of the device for a stereo audio experience. <br/> <br/> <img src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/03/ipadprodummy2.jpg" alt="ipadprodummy2" width="300" height="224" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-444019" /> <br/> Aside from its larger size and tweaked design elements to accommodate new features, the iPad Pro is said to look similar to the existing iPad Air and iPad mini. It's rumored to have a high-resolution display between 12.2 and 12.9 inches, an A8X processor, 2GB RAM, and Touch ID. It may also support an <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/01/18/kuo-ipad-pro-stylus/">optional stylus accessory</a>. <br/> <br/> Apple may be targeting a <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/03/04/apple-delays-ipad-pro-production/">September 2015 production timeline</a> for the tablet, so it may come alongside new iPad Air and iPad mini models this fall. <br/> <br/> <b>Update:</b> We've received word that these images were originally shared by Dutch site <em><a href="http://nieuws.vandaagapple.nl/inieuws/exclusief-zijn-dit-de-eerste-fotos-van-de-ipad-pro">vandaagapple.nl</a></em> [<a href="http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fnieuws.vandaagapple.nl%2Finieuws%2Fexclusief-zijn-dit-de-eerste-fotos-van-de-ipad-pro">Google Translate</a>] in February.<img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/35070/f/648326/s/44f2007a/sc/15/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851018974/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2007a/sc/15/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851018974/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2007a/sc/15/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851018974/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2007a/sc/15/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851018974/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2007a/sc/15/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851018974/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2007a/sc/15/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851018974/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2007a/sc/15/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851018974/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2007a/sc/15/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/224851018974/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2007a/sc/15/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/224851018974/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/44f2007a/sc/15/a2t.img" border="0"/><div class="feedflare">

9 features we want to see in the iPhone 6s

Today, 05:09 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

Gold Apple Watch Edition comes with a buying experience w...

Today, 05:07 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

You probably already know if you're going to shell out $10,000 or more for the Apple Watch Edition—aside from being made of gold, it isn't going to do anything that the $349 Apple Watch Sport or the $549 Apple Watch can't do. However, buying and getting support for the five-figure watches will apparently be substantially different, according to a report from 9to5Mac.

It begins with the buying experience itself. The cheaper Apple Watches will reportedly be sold using five- to ten-minute demo sessions at tables set up throughout Apple Stores, but the Apple Watch Edition will be demoed in private one-on-one sessions that can last up to an hour. Accessories and alternate bands will apparently be offered after customers have been allowed to try on the watches.

Once you've bought your five-figure smart watch, you can elect to have it set up in the store, or you can take it home and go through a "Virtual Personal Setup" video chat with an employee. The Personal Setup feature will reportedly be available to stainless steel Apple Watch wearers, too, but only Edition buyers will get "an exclusive, dedicated Apple Watch Edition phone line for two years of 24/7 technical support." An AppleCare+ purchase extends your watch hotline privileges to three years.

Adobe releases Comp CC layout-design iPad app

Today, 04:59 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

Adobe today released a new iPad app dubbed Comp CC that offers “rapid creation of layout concepts for mobile, Web and print projects” that can later be used in Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and InDesign CC. Adobe first previewed the new app last year when it was still an early prototype, but today the app is arriving on the App Store for all.
http://rss.buysellad...88&c=1169273474
The Adobe Comp CC app is available as a free download on the App Store and requires at least a free Create Cloud membership.
Features include a gesture-based UI, an infinite timeline, Typekit fonts, integration for importing images and direct export of layouts to InDesign CC, Photoshop CC, or Illustrator CC, and, of course, Creative Cloud support to keep everything saved in the cloud and access assets:

Comp CC extends the mobile and desktop workflows enabled by Creative Profile and Creative Cloud Libraries. Creative Cloud Libraries consist of design assets — such as images, colors, text styles, brushes and more — that members have created with Creative Cloud tools. And a member’s Creative Profile surfaces their libraries, as they move from app-to-app and desktop-to-device, in the right context — enabling members to effortlessly work across devices and apps. Thanks to their Creative Profile and associated Creative Cloud Libraries, Comp CC lets designers quickly combine the Typekit fonts, relevant images, color swatches and shapes they need to jump-start layout-design projects on iPad and later continue their work in CC desktop tools.

Apple Maps Connect expands to Italy, Switzerland & Me...

<p><a href="https://9to5mac.file...47-08.png"><imgtitle="Apple Maps Connect expands to Italy, Switzerland &amp; Mexico" class=" size-full wp-image-372124 aligncenter" src="https://9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2015/03/screenshot-2015-03-30-12-47-08.png?w=704&h=399" alt="Screenshot 2015-03-30 12.47.08" width="704" height="399" /></a></p>
<p>Apple this week has begun rolling out its Apple Maps Connect feature to a trio of new countries: Italy, Switzerland, and Mexico. Apple Maps Connect allows business owners to alter their business listing on Apple Maps for OS X and iOS as well as add their businesses to the platform. The additions are noted on the <a href="https://mapsconnect....ex">portal</a>,while Apple <a href="https://twitter.com/viticci/status/582583431579717632">has also begun emailing users</a>. Business listing updates can take about a week. Apple first launched the service in the U.S. <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2014/10/21/apple-launches-new-service-allowing-local-businesses-to-get-listed-on-apple-maps-solicits-indoor-mapping-partners/">last October</a>, expanded it to the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and Singapore <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/01/26/apple-maps-connect-for-small-businesses-expands-beyond-the-u-s/">in January</a>, and <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/02/20/apple-maps-connect-international/">brought it to</a> Canada, France &amp; Germany in February. The same online portal allows businesses with over 1 million annual visitors to apply for Apple’s indoor mapping technology.</p>
