I think it's useful to know that once one enters clam shell mode, the computer goes to sleep, unless you are using a bluetooth keyboard to wake it. I use a Henge dock with a 2010 MacBook Pro, and have had no heat issues keeping it in vertical position: heat dissipates through the greater exposure of surface area; instead of heat building up when the device sits in its normal laptop mode.
I read in another site that Yahoo's weather app got its info from the Weather Chanel. So the data won't be changing, but more features will appear than Yahoo was providing.
Is there a list of compatible hardware for Yosemite's feature set? I realize, for example, that AirDrop isn't going to work except on the latest iPhone/iPad, but which MacBook Pros, iMacs, etc. will it work with. Is Bluetooth 4[chip] the essential ingredient?
So now we have to wait for the inevitable post which lists all the apps that are used in the commercial. Or will we have to depend on Apple to do it for us?
You may want to consider a cellular bluetooth gateway. Older style phones plugged into jacks around the house that you can answer when your iPhone in the other room rings.   https://www.google.com/search?q=cellular+bluetooth+gateway&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=sb
Since Apple Maps (and voice navigation) is built into CarPlay why would one require a navigation unit from the car manufacturer?   Also. does anyone know if CarPlay is limited only to Apple Maps? Can one use another map application or GPS nav app on your phone?
Since most iPhone users are going to hold out on upgrading until they can get the subsidized price from their cell provider, I don't see Apple releasing a new unit until September the earliest. I for one can't get ATT to allow me to upgrade until September, and millions of others are in the same boat. It wouldn't look good for sales numbers if the phone was release to minimum adoption. It's bad enough that rumors imply Apple will demand a$100 more from the cell providers,...
There's no mention of what format the images are. I assume it's too much to hope there is a way to shoot RAW, but I suspect they will be JPEG, at least on the phone. While the larger 1 inch sensor has more features, it's only 3x zoom. Is that due to the larger sensor size?
Leaked parts images have become a daily occurrence. But so far I haven't seen/heard about any improvements to the camera. I don't expect more megapixels, but I'm wonder if more powerful processors will improve image quality (over the 4S) for either stills or video.
I didn't have a battery issue (on iPhone 4) and still don't after updating to 5.0.1. But I did have certain Location Services shut off prior to the update (those suggested a few weeks back in order to avoid excess battery drain) and noticed that the update turned them back on again. I shut them off again and have had no problems. However I am not using iCloud, which I'm guessing is the source of a lot of battery issues for those who are taking a lot of photos and having...
