iOS 13 vs. Android 10: How Apple and Google match up

iMachowapple Published the article • 0 comments • 66 views • 2019-09-25 08:23 • May belong to these tags

When it comes to software, iPhone and Android phones are neck and neck.
without the software that powers them, iPhones and Android phones would be high-priced pieces of glass, metal and plastic. So let's see how the new mobile OSes from Apple and Google compare. iOS 13 will go live on Sept. 19 and Android 10 -- previously codenamed Q -- is out now for Pixel phones. 

On one side of the table, iOS 13 includes a systemwide dark mode, more control over privacy settings and a bushel of improvements designed to make the iPhone more secure and easier to use. On the other side, Google's Android 10 also brings on dark mode, a focus on privacy and useful AI enhancements.

With the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Max Pro just announced, we'll soon see this the new iOS software absorbed into hardware. And if you have a Pixel phone, Google's new software is your reality. Show all

Twitter Plans to Stop Counting Links and Photos in 140-Character Limit

iPhonehowapple Published the article • 0 comments • 811 views • 2016-05-19 15:16 • May belong to these tags

Twitter has plans to stop counting photos and links within the 140-character limit allowed for each tweet, reports Bloomberg. Removing photos and links from tweets will allow tweets with media to contain more text. 

At the current time, photos take up 24 characters and links take up 23 characters, eliminating 47 available characters when both are included in a tweet. Twitter is reportedly introducing the change to give Twitter users "more flexibility" after exploring methods that would allow users to include more text in tweets. 

Twitter has made efforts to give users additional characters to work with in the past, implementing tweet quoting features, using link shorteners, and removing character limits from Direct Messages. 

Twitter has included a 140-character restriction since it launched in 2006, put in place to stay within the limits of the standard 160-character length of SMS messages with 20 characters left as space for a username. Reports in January suggested Twitter was considering eliminating the 140-character limit and allowing tweets to contain up to 10,000 characters as part of a project it called "Beyond 140," but Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey later said the character limit would not be changed. 

Twitter is expected to implement the change in the next two weeks.

Use “Delete Immediately” on Files to Bypass Trash in Mac OS X

iMachowapple Published the article • 0 comments • 1150 views • 2016-05-11 19:55 • May belong to these tags

The latest versions of OS X include a new ability to immediately delete a file or folder from the Mac, bypassing the Trash can. Essentially how the “Delete Immediately” feature works is by circumventing the Trash and rather than waiting for user action to remove the files, it just deletes the file(s) instantaneously from the Mac, making the delete immediately function faster than the typical manner of removing a file in OS X.

Delete Immediately is a handy feature if you want to rid a file or folder from the Mac right away and without having to manually empty the Trash, it effectively skips the Trash function and just deletes the files. This is not intended to be a replacement for secure empty Trash, however and doesn’t offer the same rewrite function.

There are two ways to access and use Delete Immediately in OS X, with a quick access keystroke and from the File menu. 

There is no way to undo this action so only use Delete Immediately if you really truly do want to vanquish a file from the Mac. 

Delete Files Immediately with a Keyboard Shortcut

The quickest way to access the Delete Immediately function in OS X is through a keyboard shortcut:

Select the file(s) or folder(s) you wish to instantly and permanently delete and hit the following keystroke sequence: Option + Command + Delete
Confirm with the dialog that you wish to delete the files permanently and immediately






[Confirm to delete a file immediately in Mac OS X]

This just circumvents placing the files into the Trash, it deletes the file(s) immediately from the Mac. 

Access Delete Immediately from the Finder

You can also access the Delete Immediately option and skip the Trash by using the File menu in the Mac file system:






[Delete immediately in Mac OS X Finder and bypass the Trash]

Select the file(s) or folder(s) you wish to instantly and permanently delete then hold the OPTION key as you access the “File” menu from the Finder
Choose “Delete Immediately” from the File menu
Confirm with the dialog that you wish to delete the files permanently and immediately






[Confirm to delete a file immediately in Mac OS X]

Again, this skips the Trash, and the files are instantly deleted. The same as using the keyboard shortcut.

Similar to using the Trash is that if a file is locked or in use the Trash action will be prevented, and if you encounter a “item can’t be moved” error, you’ll likely need to quit apps and relaunch the Finder first. Show all

Fixing an “Item can’t be moved to Trash because item can’t be deleted” Error in Mac OS X

iMachowapple Published the article • 0 comments • 1032 views • 2016-05-11 19:53 • May belong to these tags

Deleting files and folders from the Mac is usually as simple as dragging the item to remove into the Trash can, but on rare occasions things don’t quite go as planned. One of the more peculiar errors when trying to remove a file appears in the form of the following message when attempting to send something to the Trash; “The item “filename.ext” can’t be moved to the Trash because it can’t be deleted.”


That error message is not exactly descriptive or helpful, but, as it appears to be a bug related to the Finder, the issue is usually fairly easy to resolve by quitting and restarting the Finder. 

There are several ways to accomplish that, the easiest perhaps being the familiar Force Quit shortcut:

Hit Command+Shift+Escape to bring up the Force Quit menu, select Finder and choose “Relaunch”

Option and Right+Clicking the Finder icon in the Dock gives the same option:

[Relaunching Finder]

If you’re a command line user, you can also choose the killall command in the Terminal app.

Whichever approach you go with, be sure to let the Finder completely load again. Then, once the Finder has opened again, you should now be able to remove the file as intended by sending it to the Trash either with a Command+Delete or by dragging and dropping it into the OS X Dock Trash icon. This is fairly basic troubleshooting, but it does work, and has apparently worked to resolve the error for quite some time judging by user responses on Apple forums

Note that if the file in question is locked, you may encounter yet another error now that’s in the Trash can when you go to actually delete the file. If so, that’s also easy to resolve by forcing the Trash to empty whether contents are locked or not. 

In some cases, the inability to trash a file like this is probably a Finder bug, though since it is easy to trigger the message with partially transferred files, it could also be a protective mechanism against prematurely removing files that are partially transferred either through local file sharing or downloading from the internet. Keep that situation in mind if you’re encountering the error message in when trying to trash something from Finder, as it may be resolved by stopping the active file transfer taking place too.
