How to rearrange app icons on your iPhone

Macworld - Thu, 12/27/2018 - 08:00

You’re going to spend a lot of time using your iPhone, so it’s a good idea to set up the icons on the Home Screen to suit your needs. You can move the icons around so the ones you use the most are easy to access, and apps that aren’t used as much are on a secondary Home Screen or a folder.

Here’s how to rearrage your app icons on your iPhone.

How to move an app icon

1. On your Home Screen, press on an icon until it is highlighted and hold it. The icons on the screen should start to jiggle.

2. Here are your options to rearranging your app icons.

  • To move an icon, tap and hold it. Then drag it to the desired location. Let go of the icon to place it.
  • To move an icon to another Home Screen, tap and hold an icon, and then drag it to the right edge of the screen. This will add a new Home Screen page.
  • To put an icon in a folder with other apps, tap and hold an icon, and then drag it on top of another icon. This will create a folder with both apps. You can then drag other icons into the folder. Remember to rename the folder
  • To remove an icon, tap the X icon on the upper left of the icon. Some Apple apps (such as Safari) cannot be removed.

3. Tap Done at the upper right of the screen when you are finished.

What to do whe you caot type certai letters o your MacBook

Macworld - Thu, 12/27/2018 - 07:00

The Mac 911 mailbag has recently included a number of letters about missing letters—people either can’t type or encounter strange keyboard problems or other oddities.

One email began, “I am cotactig you because my Mac Book Pro keyboard has decided it does ot like to type the letter that appears betwee L ad M o the keyboard.” (Sadly, the writer even had an “n” in her name.)

These kind of keyboard problems are easy to diagnose, because Apple’s had a spate of problems with its MacBook and MacBook Pro models. It chose a new keyboard design starting with the 2015 12-inch MacBook, and then brought to the 2016 overhaul to the MacBook Pro line. Its revised its design once, but not with much improvement.

Why 2019 could be an enormous year of change for the Mac

Macworld - Thu, 12/27/2018 - 06:00

2019 is shaping up to be a big year for the Mac, and I don’t just mean a year where there are a bunch of new Mac models released, along with a macOS update, like almost every other year. This could be the year that everything changes. It’s potentially the most tumultuous year since the transition from the original Mac OS to Mac OS X.

So here’s my annual mix of prediction and wishcasting for the Mac in the coming year.

The Mac Pro arrives at last

Apple has done all 2019 look-ahead columns the great service of preannouncing the new Mac Pro (in 2017!) and, this year, admitting that it would arrive in 2019. The company has also said that it will be releasing its own external display, so no points for guessing that one, either.

Since Presidents Xi Jinping and Donald Trump came to a temporary truce almost a month ago, China’s removed a retaliatory duty on U.S. automobiles and is drafting a law to prevent forced technology transfers. It’s also slashed import tariffs on more than 700 products and began buying U.S. crude oil, liquefied natural gas and soybeans again.

Tributes to British couple who died within hours of each other in Australia

Top Stories - Thu, 12/27/2018 - 01:00

Thousands of dollars have been raised to help the families of a British couple who died within hours of each other in Australia just days before Christmas. Jason Francis was hit by a car, reportedly driven by a pizza delivery worker, near the home he shared with his partner Alice Robinson in Perth. Following his death, Ms Robinson, who was said to have been left "heartbroken", was found dead. More than A$30,000 (£16,000) has been raised for the bereaved families of the couple, believed to be from Shropshire, since a fundraising page was set up on Christmas Eve. Mr Francis had been on a day out with some other friends from the rugby club who organised a taxi home for him on Saturday evening. The 29-year-old was on the carriageway in the beachside suburb of Scarborough when he was hit by a white VW Jetta, driven by an 18-year-old man, Western Australia Police said. Following on from our tragic news of Jason and Alice, a go fund me page has been set up to raise funds to bring our friends home so that the families can lay them to rest #gofundme#donatehttps://t.co/0pTHtPvrZ4— Newport Salop RUFC (@NewportSalopRFC) December 24, 2018 Sam Diamond, president of Cottelsoe rugby club, which Mr Francis had joined at the beginning of the year after moving to the area, said he understood Ms Robinson had gone outside to investigate when she saw the flashing emergency lights. He said: "She was told by first responders that it was Jason they were working on." He said she had been left "heartbroken" by her partner's death, which was confirmed at Royal Perth Hospital. He said: "We don't know what happened to her after this. I know the police have launched an inquiry into it. She has gone missing after notifying some of our friends of what's happened (to Mr Francis) and hasn't been found until the next morning." A police spokesman said: "Police will investigate this matter and prepare a report for the coroner, which will include the full circumstances leading to the woman's death." They have also appealed for witnesses to the collision in Scarborough's Stanley Street at around 8pm on Saturday. Mr Diamond said the couple had made a big impression on the community in their short time there. "They were two of the finest people you could meet. They well and truly ingrained themselves in our club. Both Jase on the field and Alice off the field. "They were an integral part (of the club)." He described Alice, who worked for a digital marketing company but was also a talented pencil sketch artist, as having "an infectious laugh" and being "very bubbly". He added: "Jason was the sort of person that's always got the time of day for everyone. Loved talking, loved working out, loved staying fit and healthy. "They were just genuine, down-to-earth, fantastic people." He said the mothers of both Mr Francis, who was in the process of becoming a firefighter in Australia, and Ms Robinson had expressed their appreciation for the funds raised. He said: "(They) thanked us for the support and have shown their appreciation for what the club and the community here is trying to do for them and Jase and Alice." Mr Diamond said the club hopes to hold a memorial service for the couple at a later date. The captain of Market Drayton Town football club in Shropshire, which Mr Francis had played for, also paid tribute. Paul McMullen said: "You young man were such a fine piece of our puzzle at MDTFC during our success and it was a pleasure to be part of it playing along side of you."

NASA wants you to celebrate New Years with its New Horizons space probe

Top Stories - Wed, 12/26/2018 - 22:05

NASA's New Horizons spacecraft has been speeding through space since early 2006 and it's about to make what might be its most interesting flyby to date. After speeding past Jupiter and Pluto in the 12 years since its launch, the probe is about to have a very close encounter with a mysterious object in the outer Solar System called Ultima Thule. As luck would have it, it's going to meet its target on New Year's Day, and it's a pretty big deal for NASA. As we approach the probe's arrival at Ultima Thule, NASA is announcing its schedule of events related to the probe's flyby. The big show will begin on the afternoon of Monday, December 31st, and it'll kick off three days of news and briefings that will give us our best look yet at an extremely distant Solar System object. Here's the schedule of events that NASA has planned: As you can see, anyone who is staying up for the big ball to drop and kick off the new year on the East Coast will only have to wait a little while to catch live coverage of the New Horizons spacecraft's close approach to Ultima Thule. NASA will provide simulations of the flyby happening in real-time, but since a live feed from the spacecraft just isn't possible we'll have to wait a little while to see the actual images the probe captures. Later on New Years Day NASA will broadcast the signal acquisition from New Horizons, confirming that it gathered the data it was instructed to and building up some serious hype for the eventual reveal of the first images of the distant object. At 11:30 a.m. EST, NASA will hold a press briefing to show off whatever images and information the spacecraft has managed to send back, but that will really only be the tip of the iceberg for scientists. In the months to come, New Horizons will beam back a wealth of data that won't be available on day one. NASA will announced a"data download schedule" that will give us all a better sense of when to expect even more news about Ultima Thule.
