The best news is that Group FaceTime is relatively easy to use. You’ll even be able to you go directly from a group chat to a group FaceTime in the Messages app.

A carousel along the bottom shows all of the FaceTime participants, while those talking are brought into the majority of the screen. Individual windows can be brought full-screen as well.

The much-coveted feature has been seen throughout the iOS12 beta, but Apple have chosen to delay general release until later in the Autumn.

Order the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR to enjoy iOS 12 straight out of the box.

Revealed: Samsung and Disney Collaborate on Zootopia-Themed AR Emojis

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Augmented Reality Avatars hit our mobile devices late last year, giving us a new way to express ourselves in message beyond the 2D Emoji keyboard.

This month we saw Apple update their Animojis to Memojis (Me + emoji = Memoji) on iOS12, and Samsung up their entertainment game with a development in their collaboration with everyones childhood favourites, Disney.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 was the first pairing of Samsung Electronics and Disney, bringing a number of Disney characters to life as downloadable AR Emojis. Now, the addition of three beloved characters from Disney’s hit movie Zootopia has made messaging on Galaxy devices even more magical.

Turn yourself into Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde and Flash or one of the ever-growing roster of animated Disney characters that are currently available for users to download, including Mickey Mouse and friends as well as characters from The Incredibles and Frozen.

Simply load up the camera’s AR Emoji mode, tap on the plus icon and select Zootopia AR pack form the Galaxy App store. You’ll then be able to create and share animated emojis, images, videos or gifs to keep your friends and family entertained.

Could the next iPhone have improved Water Resistant protection?

Friday, June 15th, 2018

A Patent recently filed by phone giants Apple hints at an upgrade from their current IP67 water resistace grading.

source CNET

The patent is for:

“Accessories for an electronic device are sealed and include a connector having a deformable seal positioned on it such that when the connector is mated to the electronic device a liquid-tight seal is formed between the accessory and the electronic device. The accessories have functions that are useful in moist, wet and/or dirty environments.”

iPhone patent

 

Accessories that have a liquid-tight seal when plugged into a device could be the advancement we’ve been waiting for from Apple. Current water-proof handsets that use a gasket and plugging cover to seal up ports against water aren’t  effective when accessories are added. These sealed accessories could allow for an IP IP68 rating, providing protection against water at depths of up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes, even when your headphones are plugged in.

If you can’t wait for Apple’s next device, check out the iPhone X and iPhone 8 available now for UK and international delivery.
