For years interactive graphics on the internet were powered by Adobe's Flash. But, today its rein is coming to a close. Let's learn what happened to this once staple of the internet and how we move on. Once a staple of the internet Adobe Flash expanded the features of the early web. Today, it no longer holds that power and has been on the decline and replaced by modern technologies.




https://youtu.be/7pcyzDwkukc




First, let's start with a brief history all the way back in the late 90s. The internet is this new thing that connects the world. In those early days, it didn't do much but display text. To combat this software like plug-ins came around to run alongside the internet and expand its features.



The biggest of these was Adobe Flash Player. Flash took over the internet. YouTube and other online videos player, online audio players, nearly any online game, graphics, and almost anything else that you interacted with on the internet was powered by Flash. But now Adobe Flash's days are numbered.



On December 31, 2020, Adobe Flash will be dead.



In July 2017, Adobe and its partners Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Mozilla (makers of the Firefox browser) made a joint announcement that it's time to move past Adobe Flash.



When the new year rolls around apps powered by Flash will cease to work. Microsoft has announced that they will uninstall the plugin from Windows computers through a Windows Update. Google Chrome has Flash deactivated by default, for now, you can re-enable it when needed, with Flash being completely removed by the end of 2020. And in Safari, the browser asks for your permission before running Flash content. The feature will be completely removed from Safari with the release of Safari 14 and macOS Big Sur.



So what happened to Flash? One of the big issues was the many security and privacy vulnerabilities. Time and time again vulnerabilities appeared that Adobe knew about, yet they still dragged their feet when came to releasing fixes.



There were many outspoken critics of the software like Steve Jobs who wrote an open letter titled "Thoughts on Flash" where he shared a security research company's findings that stated Flash as "having one of the worst security records in 2009". He goes on to say that "Flash is the number one reason Macs crash." His list of gripes included terrible performance, terrible reliability, terrible security, terrible battery life, and the lack of touch support.



However, at the end of the day, there are two main reasons Adobe Flash has met its demise.



One, the lack of touch support. In 2020 we think everything is optimized for touch screen mobile devices, but not Flash applications.



Second, the open web. HTML is an open and free to use programming language for making websites. Running alongside HTML is CSS for design and JavaScript for user interaction, both of which are also open and free to use standards. They're fast, reliable, touch-friendly, and great on battery. Any company can use and contribute to the development of these projects instead of it being controlled by one person or company like Flash was. Because of this,]]>

Following the Trail of Scam Email https://appleguideweb.com/following-the-trail-of-scam-email-2/ Fri, 02 Oct 2020 16:00:00 +0000 https://appleguideweb.com/?p=656369 Malicious emails have gotten good, like really good. They can make any email look authentic, but is it? Let's follow a trail left by a malicious email and discover tactics attackers use. Malicious emails have gotten good, like really good. They can make any email look authentic, but is it? Let's follow a trail left by a malicious email and discover tactics attackers use. Malicious emails have gotten good, like really good. They can make any email look authentic, but is it? Today we are going to follow a trail of malicious emails and discover some tactics attackers use.



Spoofing and Phishing Email



Before getting into a specific example let's start with the basics. When someone spoofs an email they are creating a fake unofficial email and attaching an official name to that email. In the body of the email is typically a phishing attack. A phishing attack is when someone tricks you into revealing personal information like a username and password.



That may sound confusing so lets look at an example.







Here is an email from iCloud giving me a ticket number and telling me that my Apple ID has been locked. Is this email really from Apple? No. To prove this let's examine the email in Apple's native Mail app.







When I hover over the sender's name "iCloud" and click the down arrow a menu will appear where you can see "iCloud"'s email address. This email came from accountprotection.sdwf9de9clg@cloud9-ide.com. You can tell where this email came from by looking to the right of the at symbol (@). In this case, this email is coming from cloud9.ide.com which is obviously not Apple.com. Therefore it's not an official email from Apple.







However, if we skip over the fact that this email didn't come from Apple lets look at the "Verify Account" button at the bottom of the email. Clicking the button will open the link in your default browser. The site address is safe-urls.link.zygwc.com/?BO2PX7Z7. If this site worked it would most likely ask for me to enter my Apple ID, which I would never do. If we look at the domain zygwc.com we can once again tell that we are not on Apple.com. Once again proving that not only is this email spoofing Apple but it is also an attempted phishing attack to get my AppleID.



On the topic of emails from "Apple", Apple will never send you an email with a Microsoft Word document attached. In general, never open Word documents from unknown senders. That document could hold malicious code that could give an attacker access to your computer.



Next Level



Let's see what happens when attackers take it to the next level.







This is an invite to a PDF document via Microsoft Sharepoint. Sharepoint is Microsoft's online collaboration software for business. Believe it or not, this is a completely authentic Microsoft Sharepoint email. The email, which I have hidden for privacy reasons, is a real email that belongs to the sender and has not been spoofed. When I click "Open" the link opens in by default browser taking me to a PDF shared via Microsoft Sharepoint. Once again everything here is authentic. What's in the PDF is where things get fishy.







The PDF tells me that I have to click the "CONTINUE TO FILE" link to access the "files". After clicking the link I get a warning from my browser telling me I'm entering an unsafe site, which is a big red flag. But to see where it goes I'm going to ignore the warning. However, I do not recommend you do the same. If your browser tells you your entering an unsafe site TURN AWAY.







Now I'm taken to a site with a URL of https://jjwws-cominnaelshair.tk/po209849-dropbox-file. Unfortunately, this site no longer opens. Previously, when it did, it would ask me to sign in with my Dropbox account to access the files. This is where I call it quits.

Apple One: Is lt Worth It? https://appleguideweb.com/apple-one-is-lt-worth-it/ Fri, 25 Sep 2020 16:00:00 +0000 https://appleguideweb.com/?p=656365 Apple One, a bundle of multiple Apple services into one monthly subscription. It may sound like a good idea. But is it? Apple One, a bundle of multiple Apple services into one monthly subscription. It may sound like a good idea. But is it? Apple has announced Apple One at its “Time Flies” Special Event last Tuesday. It’s a bundle of their services into one monthly or yearly subscription and comes in three tiers, and will be released by the end of the year. But, is it worth it?




https://youtu.be/yxlY7y-lZcs




Apple's Services



First, let’s do a rundown of Apple’s services.







Apple Music$10/mo (Personal), $15/mo (Family)Apple Music is their music streaming service. For $10 a month you and stream all the music you want from a wide variety of artists, create playlists, explore new music, and expand your library.



Apple TV+$5/moApple TV+ is Apple’s video streaming service featuring original award-winning content from Apple’s studios for $5 a month.



Apple Arcade$5/moApple Arcade, Apple’s gaming subscription service has around 100 games, mostly children’s games, that are all ad-free have no in-app purchases. It costs $5 a month.



iCloud Storage50GB: $1/mo, 200GB: $3/mo, 2TB: $10/moGet iCloud Storage to back up your iPhone or iPad. Use iCloud Photos Library to sync your photos and iCloud Drive to sync files between your devices and the cloud. Pricing is based on how much storage you purchase. So, $1 a month for 50GB, $3 a month for 200GB, and $10 a month for 2TB.



Fitness+$10/mo (Coming later 2020)Fitness+, coming later this year, will deliver workout videos from a team of “Top workout trainers at Apple”. For $10 a month you can stream on your iPhone, iPad, or AppleTV. And, with Apple Watch integration you can see your rings on screen as you complete your goals. There is also Apple Music integration for adding the trainers' curated playlist to your music library.



News+$10/moNews+ gives you ad-free access to full publications from over 300 newspapers and magazines including Time Magazine, The Washington Post, Nation Geographic, LA Times, and more for $10 a month.



Apple One Plans



Now that we have that out of the way let’s take a look at the Apple One tiers.







Apple One Individual costs $15 a month and includes Music, Arcade, TV+, and 50GB of iCloud storage.



Apple One Family costs $20 a month and includes the same services as the individual plan with iCloud storage being increased to 200GB. You can also share the benefits with up to six people.



Apple One Premier costs $30 a month and includes all of Apple’s services including Music, Arcade, TV+, 2TB of iCloud storage, News+, and Fitness+. With the ability to share all of these services with up to six people.



My Complaints



I do have some complaints. Apple why include TV+ and Arcade in every bundle? Both of these services are hard sells.



Starting with AppleTV+. The service may have award-wining content, but there isn’t a lot. There’s about enough content to spend $5 to subscribe for a month and stream the whole catalog. Or you can just buy a new Apple product and get a year of TV+ free.



Second, Apple Arcade? No thanks. Get access to around 100 children’s mobile games. Games you would expect to be free on the App Store supported by ads and in-app purchases, not a monthly subscription. It would make more sense if included some console-level gam...]]>

Microsoft 365: What is the Best Way to Purchase Office? https://appleguideweb.com/microsoft-365-what-is-the-best-way-to-purchase-office/ Fri, 04 Sep 2020 22:30:00 +0000 https://appleguideweb.com/?p=656209 If your looking to buy Office you have two options: buy the latest version out right or purchase a subscription that gives you so much more. Let's find out which is best for you! If your looking to buy Office you have two options: buy the latest version out right or purchase a subscription that gives you so much more. Let's find out which is best for you! If you're looking into getting Microsoft Office at home you can purchase it one of two ways, purchasing a monthly or yearly subscription or a one time purchase. However, there are some free alternatives like LibreOffice or iWork. To learn more about those check out our last story on Microsoft Office Substitutes. If a substitute is not the answer your looking for let's find the best way for you to purchase Office.




https://youtu.be/CCyGe3U4374




Price







First, let's start with the price. At the moment you can get a one-time purchase of Office for $150 for one computer. With a subscription, it's $7 a month for personal or $10 a month for a family plan with up to 6 members.



Now let's analyze these prices. If Microsoft continues releasing new versions of Office at the same rate, around every three years or so. If you take that $150 and divide it by 36 (for 36 months over those 3 years) you get about $4 a month that is if you plan on always purchasing the latest version of Office when released. That's $3 less than just purchasing the personal subscription.



What comes with a One-Time Purchase of Office?



With a one time purchase of Office, you get Word, PowerPoint, and Excel on one PC or Mac. That's all you get. If you're looking to install Office on more than one computer or have multiple users it may make more sense to get a subscription.



What comes with Microsoft 365 Subscription?



Microsoft rebranded Office 365 into Microsoft 365 in an attempt to highlight other features that are now bundled with the subscription. There are two subscription options, a family plan, and a personal plan. With the personal plan, you can install Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, Access, and Publisher on up to 5 Mac, PCs, iOS devices, and Android devices. With a family plan, you can share your Microsft 365 benefits with up to 6 people. This means that each person can install Office on up to 5 of their desktop and mobile devices.



The next biggest thing that comes with the subscription is 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage per person. 1TB is enough to back up your whole computer to the cloud so you don't lose any data in the case of a computer failure. Alternatively, you can use OneDrive storage to back up your whole photo library so you don't lose a single memory. With your data stored in the cloud, you can access it from any other device around the world.



As a Microsoft 365 subscriber your not stuck with the current version of Office. When the next big version is released just wait for the update to come to your computer. No need to dish out more money for the next release.



Lastly, and this is a big one, free phone or chat support from Microsoft. If you are someone who knows they may be running into problems whether, with account management or using other Office products, this may be appealing.



Those are the highlights of what comes with a Microsoft 365 subscription. Some other side notes include: "AI-powered creative tools" where your computer can help you make design suggestions to your documents. You get a generous 60 Skype minutes so you can call mobile phones and landlines. "Special partner offers" which gives you free trials to Adobe and some other "partners" (nothing big here).







If you're looking to purchase Office you can choose a one-time purchase or a subscription. Personally, I would go with the subscription where I don't have to worry about updates, I can install on all of my devices, and the cloud storage opens many possibilities for backing ...]]>

Unboxing Dell UltraSharp! Was it Worth it? https://appleguideweb.com/unboxing-dell-ultrasharp-was-it-worth-it/ Fri, 28 Aug 2020 16:00:00 +0000 https://appleguideweb.com/?p=656282 My computer monitors were aging QUICKLY so it was about time to get an upgrade. But was the Dell UltraSharp a good choice? My computer monitors were aging QUICKLY so it was about time to get an upgrade. But was the Dell UltraSharp a good choice?
https://youtu.be/0QmdgRv3AnQ








Specs Rundown



So this is a 27 inch Dell Ultrasharp monitor, model number U2719D. It has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 at 60Hz. The fast response time of 8 ms is set by default, or you can decrease down to 5ms through the monitor’s controls. It’s an LED-backlit monitor so it can get pretty bright but not as dark so there will still be some gray haze in darker areas. It supports 16 million colors and is 99.9% o the sRGB color scale and is factory color calibrated.



So let’s put that into simpler terms. The QHD resolution is a nice little spot between Full HD(or 1080p) and Full 4K. With this monitor look at getting super vibrant high-quality images.







It has super small bezels along all four edges which I love, and it’s super thin so you don’t have to worry about it towering over your desk. The bundled monitor stand is simple to put together, no tools necessary. It can pivot clockwise and counterclockwise 90^o, swivel 40^o in both directions, tilt up and down, and is even hight adjustable. However, if you don’t like the stand that is included you can always pick out your own 100x100 VESA stand or wall mount. Just keep in mind that the mounting holes are housed in the cavity covered by the included monitor stand.











Next, let’s look at the ports in the back. You have the standard power connecter that you find on most other monitors and computers. Then there is an HDMI port which is most likely the port you will use since it is found on most modern displays and TVs along with most PCs. Then you have two DisplayPort connections. DisplayPort is an HDMI competitor in the PC market and is a higher-end cable standard. The first DisplayPort connection is an input, so you plug your computer into this port. The next DisplayPort connection is for output or dazy chaining to another monitor. This means you can plug your computer into one monitor then plug the monitor into another for, affectively, three monitors, however, your computer does need to support Multi-Stream Transport or MST for this to work. DisplayPort and HDMI both carry audio in addition to video.







When you connect your monitor to the computer through one of these ports the monitor will become your computer’s speaker. Since this monitor doesn’t have built-in speakers you can use the 3.5mm headphone jack to plug in your own pair of speakers, or you can get one of Dell’s sounders. You also have the option to change your audio output speakers in your computer’s settings. Up next we get to the USB ports. The first is a USB Type B version 3.0 of which one side goes into the back of the monitor while the other ends on your computer. This one cable connects the other four USB Type-A version 3.0 ports to your computer. You can find two in the back and another two along the left side. You will notice that one of the USB ports on the side of the monitor has a battery indicator next to the USB symbol because you can use this port to charge another device like your iPhone.







My final thoughts on this monitor: it’s overkill for most people. If you come to me and ask me to recommend a monitor to your I’m going to say look at something in the $100 dollar price range with Full HD. Lots of lower end PCs may even struggle to output to the full potential of this monitor. And for most people, the color accuracy doesn’t really matter. The USB dock built into the screen is a cool addition but is it necessary if you can get a monitor at a lower cost without all of that. However, for creatives or people with more powerful computers and a budget for a $300 monitor go for it you have nothing to lose.

Lose Your Phone, But DON’T Lose your DATA https://appleguideweb.com/lose-your-phone-but-dont-lose-your-data/ Fri, 21 Aug 2020 16:00:00 +0000 https://appleguideweb.com/?p=656197 Our lives run on our iPhone. What would happen to your data if you lost your phone, or maybe one day it just didn't turn on? One day this will happen so be prepared and know how to keep your data safe. Our lives run on our iPhone. What would happen to your data if you lost your phone, or maybe one day it just didn't turn on? One day this will happen so be prepared and know how to keep your data safe. Our lives are quickly moving in the mobile direction. Everything that used to be managed on your iMac can now be done on your iPhone. Have you ever thought what would happen if you lost your phone, or worse, broke it beyond repair? Think of what you would lose, all your photos, contacts, apps, and more. That's why you should always back up your data.




https://youtu.be/-58FEUIJbrc








When backing up your data you're creating another copy of your device. If you somehow lose your device you have nothing to fear because another copy is safely held in a different location.



Previously you would use your desktop or laptop with iTunes (may it rest in peace) to back up your phone. If something would happen to your phone, you can buy a new one, plug it into your computer, open iTunes, and restore from your previous backup. However, if you no longer have a computer you need somewhere else to keep a second copy of your data.



If you're looking for a second-place to store all of your data, look no further than your iCloud account. iCloud is Apple's cloud suite that can sync your Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, Safari bookmarks, Notes, usernames, and passwords with iCloud Keychain, and track your Apple products with Find My. iCloud is a great place to start when looking to sync and back up your data.



Finding Your Calendars, Notes, Contacts, and Reminders



However, iCloud is not the only place you can save your data. If you have added any other email accounts there's a chance that some of your information may be saved on those accounts. First, you need to know where your information is saved.



In Account settings I have Yahoo enabled for Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, and Notes. Do I have anything saved to my Yahoo account?



If you open Settings then Accounts and Passwords you can see all of the email accounts that you have set up on your iPhone. Under each account, you can see which services are enabled. If you know which account is syncing your contacts, calendars, etc. then disable the other accounts that have those services enabled. For instance, since I use my iCloud account to sync my contacts and calendars, I am going to disable those services from Yahoo. It would be even better if you configure this when you originally add the account to your phone.



If you know which account is syncing your contacts, calendars, notes, and reminders you can skip to the next part getting some ideas of how to back up your photos. If not keep reading to learn how to find which account is doing the work.



In Calendar I see two active calendars in my Yahoo account. However, neither have any calendar dates added to them.



Start by opening the Calendar app then clicking "Calendars" at the bottom. Scroll through the list and see which accounts are active and which calendars are linked to them. In the top left of each section is the name of the account such as iCloud or Gmail. Look at the calendars you have set up under each account. Do you have an account enabled with no calendars or events? If so go to Settings, then go to Accounts and passwords. Select the account of which you want the calendar disabled. Then toggle the calendar off. Now let's move on to the next!



I open Notes and see Yahoo is not a source, so I move on to the next.



Open the Notes app then clicking the back button to go to your folders. Scroll through the list and see which accounts are active. In the top left of each section is the name of the account such as iCloud or Yahoo. Do you have an account enabled with no notes saved? If so go back into Accounts and Passwords in Settings...]]>

Why Get a USB-C Hub instead of Adapter? https://appleguideweb.com/why-get-a-usb-c-hub-instead-of-adapter/ Fri, 14 Aug 2020 16:00:00 +0000 https://appleguideweb.com/?p=656245 USB-C is commonly found on most computers and tablets sold today. It's the port that can do it all HDMI, USB-A, SD, Micro SD, and wired internet. But to access all of these features you're going to need some adapters. Or are you? USB-C is commonly found on most computers and tablets sold today. It's the port that can do it all HDMI, USB-A, SD, Micro SD, and wired internet. But to access all of these features you're going to need some adapters. Or are you? If you have purchased any new Mac or iPad Pro since 2016 or some Windows PC's then you probably have one or more USB-C ports. This oval connector that can be used to give your computer both power and data, it's the port that can do it all. Gone are the days of having any other ports, other than USB-C, on your computer.




https://youtu.be/gi_KN3n-RR4




Problems With USB-C Adapters



It's nice to have just the one port but it also means you will need an adapter if you want to connect to a TV, get a wired internet connection, read the SD card from your camera, and for all the USB-A accessories you have like external backup drive, or wired keyboards and mice. If you add up the price of all theses adapters needed can get pretty expensive.



Then if you have something like a standard MacBook which only has one USB-C port there is no way you can use more than one adapter at the same time. Forget trying to charge your notebook while you have a thumb drive plugged in.



Lastly, if you have a laptop with a USB-C port and you want to keep your set up mobile, you don't want to carry around all of these dongles just in case you may need one.



The Alternative: USB-C Hub



Having to carry around multiple adapters, preparing for anything you may run into, is not the ideal solution. So why not get one adapter that can do it all, a USB-C Hub. It will only take one USB-C port on your device, which is great if you only have one, and it can do everything you need.



Now let's look at some examples from Anker, a company that makes quality USB-C hubs at an affordable price.



*Disclaimer: Anker is not a sponsor I just genuinely enjoy their products.



Anker's "3-in-1 Premium USB C Hub with Power Delivery"



Starting small with the "3-in-1 Premium USB C Hub with Power Delivery" where you can connect to a monitor, plug in a USB-A accessory, and a USB-C port that you can use to pass-through power to the device the hub is connected to.



Anker's "4-in-1 USB C Adapter"



Going up one port is Anker's "4-in-1 USB C Adapter" which adds an additional USB-A connection.



Anker's "USB C Hub, 7-in-1 USB C Adapter"



There is also Anker's "USB C Hub, 7-in-1 USB C Adapter" which adds an extra USB-C port for data and SD and micro SD card readers which is great for photographers.



Anker's "PowerExpand+ 7-in-1 USB-C PD Ethernet Hub"



Lastly is Anker's "PowerExpand+ 7-in-1 USB-C PD Ethernet Hub" which takes the "7-in-1 USB C Adapter" and replaces the USB-C port with an ethernet port for a wired internet connection.







When looking into adapters, sure you could get multiple adapters that perform one task, or you can a single USB-C hub that can do it all.

Take a look at these free alternatives and see if one works for you! Microsoft Office is the industry standard in office productivity apps. Word, PowerPoint, and Excel are used by offices around the globe. If your a home user paying monthly for Office you're looking at around $7 a month or $70 a year. Have you ever thought if you really need Office? Maybe you just need a place to type in some notes in Word or calculate some numbers in Excel. In this case, it may not be worth spending $70 a year on Microsoft Office. So here are 3 free alternatives for Microsoft Office.




https://youtu.be/lyaIezUvTm8




Apache OpenOffice



Apache OpenOffice is a free open source app. OpenOffice is a single app where you can create text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, databases, and formulas. It works on practically any desktop computer including macOS, Windows, and Linux.



OpenOffice 4 StartCenter



If you ever used Microsoft Office before 2004 you will find yourself right at home with customized toolbars that stretch across the top of the window. It's a simplified look that uses the traditional universal icons that we see across most office apps.



OpenOffice Writer (Text Editor)



OpenOffice Impress (Presentations)



OpenOffice Calc (Spreadsheets)



OpenOffice Formulas (Math Equations)



OpenOffice Base (Database)




Download Apache OpenOffice




LibreOffice



LibreOffice is the exact same as OpenOffice. The little difference is LibreOffice is updated more often. It also has a more modern and cleaner look to it while keeping the original design of OpenOffice intact. Like OpenOffice, LibreOffice is available cross-platform on most desktop computers including macOS, Windows, and Linux. It still has the same apps that come with OpenOffice including a text editor, spreadsheet, database, presentations, drawings, and formulas.



LibreOffice Writer Document (Text Editor)



LibreOffice Impress Presentations



LibreOffice Calc Spreadsheet



LibreOffice Math Formula



LibreOffice Draw Drawing



LibreOffice Base Database




Download libreoffice




iWork (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote)



Apple's iWork suite comes preinstalled on every Mac, iPhone, and iPad. If their not on your computer find them in the App Store where you can download them for free. iWorks is exclusive for the Apple ecosystem including Mac, iPhone, and iPad.







iWork is a little different than OpenOffice. The iWork suite is made up of three different apps. Keynote for presentations, Pages for text documents, and Numbers for spreadsheets.



Each of these apps uses the same styled layout including a single top customizable toolbar which is great for tools that you use often, although most of the tools can be found on the side toolbar. iWork is the wild card, in that it's different than the rest of office programs, and may take time to get used.

How will this affect me? Is now a good time to buy a new Mac? What does this mean for Boot Camp? What even is a processor? Let's dive in and answer these big questions. Here is an Elementary guide to Apple Silicon.




https://youtu.be/aN3x-kg8Py4




What is a processor?




The processor is the brain of your computer. This is the computer component that handles the basic instructions you or an app gives to your computer. The processor doesn't stop with the computer but is found in almost every piece of technology. It's what processes your mathematical equations in your Calculator. Alexa uses its processor to answer your questions. You can even find them in chargers that optimize your device battery's health. You can find them everywhere.




What is Apple Silicon?



Apple Silicon is the processors' Apple is switching to in its Mac line of products. So why don't they call them processors, like Intel processors? It's because Apple Silicon is more than just a processor, they are systems on a chip or SOC. At the heart of Apple's SOC is a processor. Built on top of the processor are many other technologies that when taken advantage of by the operating system, and software can tremendously increases the performance of the computer.



Why the switch?

Then what was wrong with Intel processors? Apple, of course, will not say for sure. I can speculate that it's because of Intel's clear lack of innovation. Since around 2016, when Apple switched to their new design for their MacBooks, Intel as struggled to keep promises and keep up with the competition. Over the past few years, there has been little gain in performance with newly released processors. In the PC market, they have been surpassed in performance by AMD, their biggest competitor. In addition to little performance gain, they have also not solved the heat problem. When a processor gets too hot it slows itself down as to not cause damage to your device. You can see that since 2016 Apple has wanted to make their laptops thinner. The trick is how to make the device thin while at the same time dissipating all the heat that the processor is producing? You then have the problem of Intel's irregular schedule of releasing new chips.



Since when does Apple make processors?







You can see Apple Silicon at work in all of Apple's product lines other than the Mac. In the iPhone, iPad, HomePod, and Apple TV you have Apple's A-Series chip. In the Apple Watch, you will find the S-Series chip. Small traces of their silicon can even be found in the Mac line with their T-Series security chips. You can even find them in Apple's headphones like the H-Series found in the AirPods, AirPods Pro, Powerbeats Pro, and Beats Solo Pro. So Apple has a lot of experience in making its own processors and it shows.



How fast will these Macs be?



In comes Apple Silicone which has solved many of the problems with Intel chips. To put this situation into perspective look no further than the iPad, specifically the iPad Pro. That thing is fast, like really fast. The 2018 iPad Pro is faster than my 13" MacBook Pro from 2017 while at the same time running cooler and in a slimmer design. In Apple's product line their mobile devices have become faster than their MacBook line.]]>

No Accessories with iPhone 12 https://appleguideweb.com/no-accessories-with-iphone-12/ Fri, 24 Jul 2020 16:00:00 +0000 https://appleguideweb.com/?p=656118 If rumors are true you will not find any accessories if the box of the unannounced iPhone 12. What would this world look like without a charger and headphones in the box? Let's explore. If rumors are true you will not find any accessories if the box of the unannounced iPhone 12. What would this world look like without a charger and headphones in the box? Let's explore. According to rumors, there is a chance that Apple will be removing accessories including headphones and chargers from the box of the not yet released iPhone 12. This may seem radical but that's also what we thought when Apple removed the headphone jack from the iPhone. Let's take a look at what this world would look like if the rumors are true. What would a world look like without accessories in the box?




https://youtu.be/hH7NaYwuLTA




To explain this let's look at how purchasing an iPhone 12 may be different. Please remember when reading this that this is all speculation. What Apple decides to do in the end is up in the air.



So your going to Apple.com to check out your new iPhone 12.You click the iPhone tab and choose the iPhone 12. Now it's time to customize your phone. Choose the color, storage, and the cell phone carrier. After clicking continue this is where things start to change. Instead of the iPhone going straight to your shopping cart and checking out, you have to choose your accessories.



First, with no charger in the box would you like one on the side? If so Apple may let you choose between one of their options: slow speed charger (
5w), medium speed charger (12w), or fast speed charger (18w). Each charger would come with its respective charger cable. You could also get the option for a wireless charger. Since Apple still doesn't have an Apple-branded wireless charger you would be offered a different brand that Apple sells like Belkin. The different charger options give buyers a choice rather than being stuck with what's in the box or having to buy a different one later. This would also give you the option to not include a charger at all. Now, why would you not want a charger in the box? If your upgrading from an iPhone 5 or newer then you already have a charger that will work with your new iPhone. This is also for the people who prefer buying a charger from a 3rd-party like Anker or AmazonBasic.



The next step is the headphones. You can choose from any of Apple's headphones like the basic EarPods, 7 Reasons to Switch to Firefox https://appleguideweb.com/7-reasons-to-switch-to-firefox/ Sat, 18 Jul 2020 16:00:00 +0000 https://appleguideweb.com/?p=656078 Firefox is one of my favorite browsers for so many reasons. Its cross platform support, simple design and security settings maybe it could be your browser replacement. Firefox is one of my favorite browsers for so many reasons. Its cross platform support, simple design and security settings maybe it could be your browser replacement. Browsers are the apps that allow you to navigate to any website on the internet from Apple.com to Amazon.com, from DisneyPlus.com to Netflix.com and everywhere in between.



Built off Netscape, the Firefox browser was born in 2004 by the Mozilla Corporation. Since then they have updated the app continuously. With it being so quick, have many ways to customize and give it your own look and feel, on top of having strong but simple privacy settings it may be a good alternative for your current browser.

So here are Firefox's top 7 features.



1. Syncing with a Firefox Account







Just like most other browsers you can create a Firefox account that will sync your history, open tabs, settings, extensions, and bookmarks between all your other computers that you have Firefox installed on and signed into the same Firefox account. For instance, if you bookmark a page on your Mac in which you are signed in with your Firefox account. Then pop over to your iPhone which has Firefox has signed into the same account you will see the bookmark copied to your iPhone. The same thing will happen with your history, tabs you have open, and settings.

2. Password Manager







In addition to syncing your history, open tabs, settings, extensions, and bookmarks Firefox will also sync your password through your Firefox account using a feature they call Lockwise.



When you go to a website and enter your username and password like you usually would. You will then get a popup from Firefox asking if you want to save the password. If you click yes that password will be saved. Then, the next time you try to sign in on that site again the username and password will automatically be filled in.



Unlike other browsers, Firefox has a mobile companion app for iOS and Android called Lockwise. With the Lockwise app, you can access all of your password saved in Firefox and even add new ones. It even supports Apple's autofill password feature on iOS.



3. Apple Share Sheet







If you're familiar with sharing things on iOS then you are familiar with the share sheet. It's where you share whatever you want to share with Facebook, email recipient, or send to another app. macOS has the same thing but it not as widely used, however, it's one of the few ways to AirDrop files in macOS. Back to Firefox, when you click the three dots on the address bar you will see "Share" which will open the built-in share sheet. (On a side note you can also take screenshots, and send the current tab to Firefox on another device.)



4. Enhanced Tracking Protection







In Firefox when you go to settings and click "Privacy and Security" on the left sidebar the first settings you see is Enhanced Tracking Protection. Firefox gives you 3 different levels of protection from online trackers and other malicious scripts.

All browsers come with a different set of exclusive features that make them each uniquely different. But, there are some features they have in common and that's what I will be talking about today.







If you recall, a browser is an app installed on all your devices that allows you to surf the web. It's the app you go to when you want to go to www.appleguideweb.com, www.apple.com, or www.amazon.com. Last week we went more in-depth on what a browser is and how it works. This week will be about common features that all bowsers share.



Topics



* Address Bar* Search bar and/or Search Engines* Home* Windows & Tabs* Bookmarks* Downloads* Privacy Settings* History* Cookies* Private Browsing



Address Bar







At the very top of the window, is the address bar which holds the Uniform Resource Locator or URL for short and commonly referred to as the web address. The URL is essentially the file path to the page you are currently looking at. Now let’s dive a little deeper and analyze the URL for this blog post.



https://www.AppleGuideWeb.com/blog/common-browser-features/‎



* https:// refers to one of the many internet protocols called hypertext transfer protocol secure, shortened to https. This tells your browser that you are visiting a website* www.AppleGuideWeb.com is the server that you are trying to access. Think of the server as a computer that is openly available on the internet. Now your computer, through your browser, will scour the internet for that computer.* Everything after appleguideweb.com/ is the file path to the site you are visiting. Think about how to save a Microsoft Word document to your desktop. You open the save window and navigate to the desktop. How you navigate to the desktop is the file path.



So why might the URL be important? This link is the direct path to what you are looking at. So, in the case that you want to share the website you're on you can send them the URL which will get them to the same page you are on.



Search Bar and/or Search Engines







Searching the web is one of the top things to do in a browser. Google gets 5.6 BILLION searches a day. In most modern browsers you can type your searches into the address bar but you may still find a dedicated search bar.



For most browsers, you will find Google as your default search engine but somewhere in the browsers settings, you should be able to change your default to another service such as DuckDuckGo, Bing, or Yahoo.



Windows & Tabs







If you find yourself multitasking or wanting to keep pages open for later you can use windows and tabs to organize the pages you have open. With a browser window, you can move it around the screen or minimize it to save it for later. Tabs are helpful for opening multiple pages in one window. With most browsers, you can drag the tab off the window which will create a new window with that tab being the only page. You can also drag tabs between multiple windows.

This past week at Apple's World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) Apple previewed some updates that will be coming this fall to an iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch, and Mac near you.



The removal of iTunes has been a long time coming. So here is a brief history of how iTunes when from revolutionizing the music industry to adware.



The story starts in the 90s. Personal computers and home internet are on the rise. The Walkman was becoming a thing of the past, being replaced by mp3 players. Suddenly the digital age of music was here!



At this point, the record labels were not offering their music for online downloads. Instead, people turned to illegal sites, like Napster, for music. Along came Apple with Steve Jobs back at the helm. Seeing the issue with the music industry he jumped into action. In 2001 Jobs unveiled two new products. At the beginning of the year, he unveiled the device that could put "1,000 songs in your pocket", the iPod. It was a revolutionary device that became the standard for mp3 players for the future to come. By the end of the year, Apple released the iTunes, a place to manage your music both on your Mac and iPod.







Since then iTunes has exploded in features. The app has gained support for streaming podcasts, buying and watching tv-shows and movies, buying and listening to audiobooks and music, as well as subscribing to Apple Music. On top of being a place to manage and sync your iTunes content to an iPod.



Meanwhile on iOS, as Apple offered each new service they created an individual app. Music in the Music app, podcasts in the Podcast app, and audiobooks in Apple Books.



Unlike on iOS with all its services spread out, iTunes on the desktop tried to do it all. Because of this iTunes has become a struggle to use. It's no longer as intuitive and simple as it once was as it is now juggling 100s of different features and services. It was no longer a simple music app, but now bloatware.







Apple announced at WWDC that they will be discontinuing the standalone iTunes app in favor of 3 new apps: Music, TV, and Podcast. It appears that Apple will be using the same interface as found on the iPad. In the Music app, you can listen to music purchased from iTunes and CDs or Apple Music if you are a subscriber, manage, and buy music. Podcasts are for all your podcast needs. Finally, the TV app is where you can find, buy, and stream movies and tv shows. For the most part, each of these apps will look and work exactly like their iPad counterparts.



As for other previous iTunes features: audiobooks can be purchased and listen to in the Apple Books app. If you sync your iPhone or iPad to iTunes you will find your device on the sidebar of a Finder window as an external device. Clicking on your device will give you the same options that used to be in iTunes.



It's sad to say goodbye to the Music app that brought music into the digital age in 2001 to the clunky app that it has become today. Now its time to wait and see if these new apps will be able to fill the void created by iTunes.
