6 things you’ll miss if you switch from iOS to Android

So I finally did it—I made the switch from iOS to Android, and I’m gleefully doing things that were never possible on my iPhone, from pinning contacts to the home screen and swiping notifications any which way, to picking a new SMS app and unlocking my phone with my face. All in all, I’m a happy camper. But I’d be lying if I said there was nothing I missed about iOS. Indeed, there are a bunch of tiny touches on…

How to tell which iPad model you have

Updated September 6, 2017 to reflect the latest iPad models.  You might think you know which iPad you have. The new one. The big one. The rose gold one. The mini. But when you need to know exactly which model you have, or better yet, which generation, it can get a little trickier. You don’t have to be an Apple Store Genius to figure it out, though you do have to know where to look… and what to look for.…

3 handy apps for iOS-to-Android switchers

As smoothly as my recent switch from iOS to Android went, I still felt like I had unfinished business left on my old iPhone. For example, I was annoyed that my wife’s iCloud calendar events weren’t showing up in my new Calendar app for Android, and I missed getting Find My Friend alerts whenever she left the office to head home. I was particularly bummed that I couldn’t respond to text messages from my Mac, like I could with iMessage.…

Lenovo Yoga Book review: Full of innovative ideas ahead of their time

For those upset after hearing Google senior vice president Hiroshi Lockheimer dispel the long-circulated rumors that the two operating systems would one day merge, there may be a sliver of hope that doesn’t involve Google. Lenovo’s Yoga Book is a 2-in-1 tablet/laptop hybrid that runs either Windows 10 or Android. It’s a unique design, with an even more unique keyboard and software features — at least on the Android version — that try to transform Android as we know it into…

How to mirror Android SMS alerts on an iOS device

So here I am, an Android phone in one hand and an iPad in the other. My trusty Nexus 5X is by my side most of the day, but occasionally I set it aside for a midday charge, leaving me with nothing but my iPad to work with. The only problem with that setup is when my 5X is elsewhere, my iPad has no way of warning me about incoming calls and texts on my Android device. If only there…

6 essential settings to make your iPhone and iPad display easier on the eyes

Nope, you don’t have to settle for itty-bitty text on your iPhone screen, nor must you deal with buttons that don’t look anything like buttons. Once you know which settings to change, you can boost the size of on-screen text on your iPhone or iPad, make words a bit more bold, zoom in with a virtual magnifying glass, warm up—or cool off—Night Shift, and more. Change text size You don’t have to squint if the text on your iPhone or…

Watch as we drop, shake and soak three ruggedized tablets

Anyone who depends on their tablet throughout the workday knows that disaster can strike at any moment. These three ruggedized Windows tablets can help you avoid catastrophe. While ruggedized tablets cost more than their more fragile peers, they mean fewer repairs, replacements and downtime. We tested three ruggedized Windows tablets to see how well they held up. First, we dropped each tablet from 29 inches up, to simulate being pushed off a desk onto a hard floor. We then dropped…

5 handy things the Photos app can do with your iPhone snapshots

With its various “Moments,” “Collections,” and “Memories,” the iOS Photos app has become almost as confusing and frustrating to use as Apple Music. (Don’t get me started.) But once you get your bearings, there are still plenty of nifty things you can do with your snapshots in Photos. From creating instant, one-tap movies and pasting shapes and captions in your pictures to publishing galleries on the web and undeleting recently trashed images, here are some tips on making the most…

iPad (2017) review: With a stripped-down iPad for $329, you may not need to go pro

Amazon sells a Kids Edition of its Fire tablet, which is the exact same tablet they sell for adults, but in a kid-friendly case, with a year’s worth of the FreeTime Unlimited service for kids apps and content. Apple does not do this. But at $329 for 32GB of storage, the new iPad is pretty close. This is a great iPad at its most family-friendly price, and certainly a better buy for kids than the $599 iPad Pro. Now, obviously…

4 easy ways to keep your iCloud password safe

If you’re an iPhone, iPad or Mac user, your iCloud password is the key to your digital realm. With your iCloud password, you can access such personal data as your iCloud mail messages, your calendar, your contacts, and your stored iCloud credit cards. Your iCloud password could even be used to track, lock and wipe your precious devices. Needless to say, it would be a very bad thing if your iCloud password landed in the wrong hands. But in just a…

Waterfi Waterproofed Kindle Paperwhite review: A waterproof e-reader

If waterproof is high on your checklist of e-reader must-haves, we recommend that most people consider the Kobo Aura H20. It’s a capable e-book reader designed to stand up to the occasional poolside splash or even an extended soak in a hot tub. For anyone already invested in Amazon’s extensive collection of DRM-protected e-books, periodicals and comic books, however, investing in another company’s incompatible hardware could be a less than attractive proposition. If you fall into this latter group of…

This could have been a versatile e-reader

The Midia InkBook 8 has similar dimensions to Kobo’s Aura One, measuring 6.5 by 1.3 by 8.9 inches and sporting an eight inch e-ink display. It weighs just a bit more than its Kobo counterpart, coming it at just under nine ounces. In exchange for the e-reader’s extra heft, you’ll gain a microSD card slot that can use cards with a maximum capacity of 32GB. Upgradeable storage on an e-reader isn’t a feature we see often, these days; probably because…
