The iOS Files app and iCloud Drive offer a file system of sorts for the iPhone and iPad. One frequently used capability of file systems is the ability to rename files and folders as necessary, and as you might expect, the Files app for iOS offers this functionality too. Apple is quite consistent with these … Read More

Last week, Apple finally shipped my new HomePod (and by finally, I mean exactly when they said they would). And setting it up couldn’t have been easier. Even easier than setting up my first Echos. So here’s the deal. Plug in the HomePod and then when it boots up you’ll see an overlay on an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, etc). You’ll want to use the device that has an AppleID you want to use on the HomePod (e.g. the one that your Apple Music account is using). When you see the Set Up button, tap it.
You can then select a location for the HomePod. This is important mostly if you’re going to have multiple HomePods around. Select a location and then tap Continue.
At the Personal Requests screen, tap Enable Personal Requests if you want the device to allow access to your iCloud account for things like, sending a message (note: unintended consequences include but are not limited to children deleting bad report cards, adding weird items to the grocery list, and sending messages from one parent to the other).
At the Terms and Conditions screen, tap Agree if you agree to the terms; otherwise put the device back in the box and return it.
At the Accounts and Settings screen, you can transfer settings to the HomePad, which gives the HomePod access to the wi-fi password for your network (so your phone doesn’t have to be close to the HomePod for it to work).
Next, you need to ask Siri a question.
I recommend asking “Siri, how are you today?”
Once configured, you can go to Settings and AppleID to see the HomePod.
From there, you can see the model, version, serial, and if you happened to configure the HomePod to work with the wrong AppleID, you can tap Remove from Account to be able to configure the device with a different account.
And finally, open the Home device and you’ll see your device.
From there, tap on the device and you’ll have a few more settings for how the HomePod works with the Home app. Here, you can change the room, change the AppleID, choose to include in the Favorites of your home screen, and disable access to Explicit Content.
Scroll down and you can choose to share HomePod Analytics. Notice that this is opt-in and they’re clear about how they’ll use it if you enable it.
So the setup is simple. I’ll have another article for configuring some home automations, so you can control them with the HomePod.

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has had stock issues ever since launching in the UK. With Apple stores in the USA now having plenty of stock, for some reason over here we’re still lacking.
Unfortunately over here, they are still in extremely short supply. With next to no stock available in any stores and even iPhone Upgrade Program users struggling to get their hands on it, this wasn’t Apple’s smoothest launch.
I carried out a little experiment of my own, to see how soon I could get my hands on Apple’s new ‘premium’ standard device, the Jet Black model. Even though I would never buy one due to it being a complete finger print magnet, it’s interesting to see just how short a supply they have. This has been rumoured to be because there is an extremely high quality control process with over 50% not reaching the desired standard and being re-milled.
With only the 128GB or 256GB options available to me, there was essentially no stock saying that I wouldn’t receive it for around a month, with most people’s orders being pushed back further. For people who have brought their devices from a mobile carrier, a lot of carrier’s are operating reimbursement voucher schemes, either giving money off the device purchase itself or giving around £50-£100 vouchers off of items such as accessories from their own stores by way of apology.
The bad news only continues for Store Stock as I was unable to pick up one within a 30 mile radius of me, with stores beyond this still not having any stock.
It was rumoured that Apple didn’t actually have as much stock as they normally do for iPhone launches due to late production but also for advertising purposes as headlines reading “Apple can’t supply enough iPhone’s” are better than “Apple have an excess of iPhones”.
What do you think? Is this launch a bit of a shambles or is it some clever advertising going on. Did you have much luck getting your iPhone near launch date? Leave a comment below letting us know.
Let me be blunt. If I lost my iPhone a week ago and needed a new one, I would buy the HTC One A9. It looks great, and upon first glance, works pretty great, too. But I didn’t lose my iPhone, and the A9 is now more expensive than I thought it was.
You can tell Zach Straley means well. The apparently wealthy YouTuber won millions of views when he showed how an iPhone 6s was surprisingly waterproof. Surely scaling that concept up and water testing all 10 iPhone models would win more 10 times that many views…
If you’re in the mood to take a glorious snooze, waking up much later than you intended to, go ahead and install the iOS 9.1 update overnight. iOS users are taking to Twitter and various forums to warn others that updating iPads and iPhones overnight will cancel any alarms from going off.
With support for Apple Pay rolling out to more and more locations, as well as improved integration bundled into the latest version of iOS, it’s way easier to use Apple’s mobile payments platform. Update-to-date iPhones can now pay for things right from the lockscreen.
There’s no denying iPhones are expensive, but be grateful you’re not buying one in India. When the new phone goes on sale in the country later this week it will cost 62,000 rupees — about $955 — for the 16GB 6S base model, making it the most expensive place in the world to buy an iPhone.
Apple’s latest iPhone has shipped with two slightly different versions of the A9 processor, one made by Samsung, and one by TSMC. Some people have reported a difference in battery life depending on the chip inside, but Apple disagrees.
