Apple’s developing advantage in iPhone photography

Can you see why Apple has been so focused on making photography great again on its iPhones?

Apple has been working hard to improve the camera ever since it realized iPhones were becoming more popular than cameras. With its LED flash, the iPhone 4 was a significant step on the journey. Today we have AR.

Don’t get me wrong: I see other smartphones sometimes offer more megapixels, but that’s only part of the story.

How your iPhone can save your life

Yesterday we learned that iPhones don’t have an FM chip inside them Apple can use to enable radio reception on its smartphones, but there are several ways mobile iOS handsets can save your bacon when disaster strikes.

On radio

Apple yesterday responded to calls that it should enable the FM radio chip the FTC said existed in iPhones.

The notion was that those who can’t get to a vehicle with a functioning radio, or who had lost all their possessions due to disaster may be able to access FM frequencies on their iPhone to help them survive.

Wax lyrical

Files is Apple’s approach to real file storage, edit and retrieval on iOS. It is an app in which you can access every item you hold in online storage services.

The idea is that you can work on something on your iPhone, edit it on your iPad, and finish up on your Mac, PC or other device. Edits made inside an item in Files or one of the file services it hosts are automatically synced to all the other systems you have that use that service.
