Alors que l’on parle beaucoup d’agrandissement de diagonale d’écran pour l’IPHONE 6, avec une version de 4,7 et même de 5,5 pouces, des chercheurs se posent une bonne question : comment rendre vraiment confortable l’écran tactile d’une montre connectée alors que ses dimensions sont réduites ? En effet, un écran aussi réduit n’est souvent pas simple d’utilisation : le doigt masquant la quasi intégralité de l’écran lors de l’utilisation. C’est pourquoi, des chercheurs ont imaginé une autre solution : Des étudiants en doctorat ont conçu un nouveau concept de smartwatch contrôlable par l’inclinaison ou en cliquant sur la bordure de la montre. A l’heure où les écrans tactiles réclament des pincements et des appuis, cette approche peut surprendre, mais elle semble plutôt efficace, et surtout elle laisse l’écran bien visible : Avec ce prototype, un mouvement de torsion suffit à effectuer un zoom alors qu’un mouvement de balayage panoramique vers la gauche ou la droite permet d’explorer une carte ou de parcourir la liste des artistes dans une application musicale. Encore à l’état de prototype, il faudra certainement attendre quelques années pour que le système imaginé et mis en pratique ici soit commercialisable. Néanmoins, la restriction est bien réelle et cette approche pourrait avoir de l’avenir en complément de fonctionnalités intégrées à un écran tactile. source Suivez l’actualité iPhon.fr Devenez fan sur Facebook Suivez nous sur Twitter Abonnez vous au fil RSS Vous aimez ?

Best iPhone and iPad apps for May 2014

Posted by phil under IPAD, The IPhone Blog on Samedi mai 31, 2014

We’ve gathered up the bestest, freshest IPHONE and IPAD games and apps to hit the App Store in May for you guys. We’ve got five games, five apps, and a handful of honorable mentions, not to mention the great suggestions that are bound to come in in the comment section. As usual, we have a full range of puzzles, action games, utilities, photgraphy apps, and just about everything else you could be using your iOS device for. There’s also a healthy mix of both free and paid apps to check out here. Are you ready to get downloading? Dig in! Best IPHONE and IPAD games for May 2014 Intake In Intake, players have to tap on pills as they fall to burst them before they hit the ground. The trick is that you need to tap a target area along the bottom to switch between one of two colors; tap a pill that’s mismatched with your current color and you lose your combo bonus. To make life a little easier, any pills of your current active color will be shielded from dropping off the screen, so long as they match. Between levels, you gather white pills which you can spend on upgradeable power-ups, or you can stock up through in-app purchases. The frantic action of the game is matched (and maybe even exceeded) by the game’s stellar soundtrack. Cipher Prime is well-known for polished, original music, but Intake’s decidedly more upbeat dubstep soundtrack ensures your adrenaline level’s never dipping. Intake is a fast-paced shooter with a truly original premise and a ton of humor. Be sure to read our Intake review for a full run-down. Download now – $2.99 Battleheart Legacy The original Battleheart set a new standard for party-based combat games on mobile with its intuitive drag-and-release control scheme, earning many imitators. Battleheart Legacy continues the evolution of iOS role-playing games with delightful 3D graphics, a classic class-based progression structure, and cute, meaningful, well-written dialog. The controls are still very touch-friendly without being oversimplified. Players embark on quests, roam the countryside, and (of course) revel in experience points and phat loot. Welcome among gaming purists is the absolute lack of in-app purchases. Battleheart Legacy is a fine continuation of a high-class RPGs on iOS. Download Now – $4.99 ctOS Mobile ctOS Mobile breaks walls between mobile and console gamers by pitting them against each other in the action-packed console game Watch Dogs. Anyone on an Xbox, PlayStation, or PC plays as a vigilante bringing justice to a futuristic Chicago by hacking the world with their phone. Meanwhile, players on iOS act as the police force, viewing the pursuit of the criminal from a bird’s eye view. To slow him down, those officers use the creepily omniscient ctOS operating system to control traffic lights, blow open steam pipes, buzz the area with a chopper and mounted sniper, and dispatch ground forces to bring the other player down. Even if you don’t own Watch Dogs or have any friends that do, ctOS is a free, high-quality multiplayer title with its own rich progression system. Pick it up. Download now – Free Thomas Was Alone Thomas Was Alone is a critically acclaimed minimalist platforming game. Despite the game’s simple graphics, Thomas Was Alone has rich narrative whereby all of the shapes you play as have their own insecurities and personalities. Seeing that much emotion in a little rectangle is pretty interesting. Though there’s a lack of any real textures, the game’s shadow and lighting effects are quite well done. Even if you’re not that big on platforming games, Thomas Was Alone is worth it for the story alone. Download now – $8.99 Kiwanuka Kiwanuka is an imaginative puzzle game where one staff-toting wizard is guiding a large troupe to the end of a treacherous path in order to free one of their brothers or sisters. The core mechanic to accomplishing this is creating tall towers of followers standing on one-anothers’ shoulders, and tipping them over to cross gaps, and allowing the others to cross. Don’t try to find the logic there, you won’t find any, but it’s pretty fun to watch, especially since the art style adopts this super-flat, polygonal look. If you’re looking for an extremely fresh puzzle game, try Kiwanuka. Download now – $1.99 Honorable mentions for great iOS games that launched in May go out to Dextris, Bounden, OFTTT, TwoDots, and Groops. Best IPHONE and IPAD apps for May 2014 Swarm Foursquare’s new app, Swarm, is taking the reins of the location-based check-in, leaving the original core app for venue recommendations and reviews. The biggest addition Swarm has to offer to the Foursquare experience is planning. Now you can indicate which spots you’re going to in the near future, and ping your nearby buddies to see if they’re interested in doing the same. Mayorships are now only relative to your group of friends, but stuff like badges and check-ins are still very much the same. It’s great to see a veteran in mobile apps take a chance at redefining itself, and we suspect the change will be for the better. Currently, Swarm is built for IPHONE. Download now – Free Noisli Noisli is a great ambient noise app that lets you turn up, down, and mix different types of ambient noise. Whether you just need something to stay concentrated on work, or you’re trying to get to sleep, you can get some fine audio help. To get an idea of what’s available, you can check out the website here, but the bonus of the app is that the sounds are available offline, can be set on a timer with a fade out. The interface is elegant and easy to use, and keeps running when the screen is locked. I’d love to see an alarm option here, but it’s great as is. Snatch this useful, simple app while it still has its half-off launch promotion. Download now – $0.99 Adobe Voice Adobe Voice is a great new way of building presentations. Users record small snippets of them speaking, and the app dynamically suggests graphics to go with it. These graphics include a ton of icons and photos bundled with the app, or you can import your own. A soundtrack can be included, along with plenty of animated transitions. The main goal of Adobe Voice is to be able to create these personal, polished presentations in as little time as possible. If you regularly tell stories, either for business or pleasure, try out Adobe Voice. Download now – Free Notifyr Notifyr is getting a lot of attention this week as a simple, streamlined way of getting notifications from your IPHONE on your Mac. Third party notifications pop up in the native area by pairing up an OS X app and an IPHONE app over Bluetooth Low Energy. Mavericks supports notifications for many native apps (and websites), so Notifyr lets you mute certain notification types on an app-by-app basis. Android users already enjoy this kind of functionality through Pushbullet and a Chrome extension, but it’s good to see something tailor built for iOS and OS X. If you’re annoyed by checking your IPHONE every five minutes to see what’s new, Notifyr will save you a ton of time. Download now – $3.99 SKRWT Mobile photography aficionados will be happy to hear about SKRWT, a new app which corrects the natural lens distortion of IPHONE cameras. Tools are built in to easily straighten out lines while keeping your original shot in pristine condition. SKRWT also offers high-precision image cropping, vignette correction, and a handful of solid borders to work with. These might seem like subtle things to require a dedicated app for, but anybody that takes their Instagram shots seriously will appreciate the fine degree of control SKRWT has to offer. Download now – $1.99 Honorable mentions for iOS app launches this month go out to Daily, Elevate, and djay for their big 2.5 update. Your favorite IPHONE and IPAD game and app launches of May? Those are all of the best IPHONE and IPAD releases over the last 30 days that we’ve been able to find, but what about you? Have you already downloaded some of these? Have you spotted any great releases that we’ve missed? Let us know in the comments!

How to replace the wifi antenna in an iPhone 5

Posted by phil under The IPhone Blog on Samedi mai 31, 2014

If your IPHONE 5 gives you an error every time you try to connect to a wifi network, it’s possible that the wifi antenna itself is at fault. Other symptoms of a bad wifi antenna could also include not being able to find networks at all. In rare cases, some folks have even thought they were connected to wifi only to find that no data will load, regardless of what network they’re on. If any of these scenarios sounds like something you’re experiencing, we can walk you through how to DIY repair the wifi antenna on your own. What you need to DIY replace an IPHONE 5 wifi antenna You’ll need some tools and parts in order to repair your IPHONE 5. If you’re in the United States or Canada, we highly recommend checking out eTech Parts as we’ve had lots of good experiences with them and know their customer service is out of this world. All the links below will route you to the direct item on eTech’s site. Replacement wifi antenna – Buy now Suction cup – Buy now 5-point security screwdriver – Buy now Flat head screwdriver – Buy now Standard #000 Phillips screwdriver – Buy now Spudger tool – Buy now Razor blade – Buy Now iSesamo Opening tool – Buy Now Step 1: Power off your IPHONE 5 Before beginning any repair, always power your IPHONE down completely using the Slide to power off option. Easy enough right? Step 2: Remove the front screen assembly To begin, use your security screwdriver to remove the two screws in the bottom of your IPHONE 5 that sit on either side of the dock. Now place your suction cup above the Home button and gently pry up from the bottom. Take care not to pull the entire screen off as the top of the screen is still attached by several cables. You only want to release the bottom portion. Once the screen is free, swing up the display assembly so you can get to the shield that is holding the cables in place. Using your ##000 screwdriver to remove the three screws holding the display shield down. Set the shield aside and remember not to mix up the screws. Now use your spudger tool to pry up the three cables that attach the display to the board. After you do so, the display should be free from the device. As a side note, you can only see two of the cables (as marked in the photo below) as the third is underneath. Most of the time the third one simply pops up on its own when you remove the first two. You may need to free it but most likely, it’ll come up on its own. The second photo below shows its location on the board for reference. Set the screen assembly aside once the display is free. Alternate method: If you’re having issues pulling the screen up with a suction cup, you may insert a razor blade on the outer edge of either screw hold and pry upwards slightly. This method gives you enough clearance to stick your spudger tool underneath and release the screen. I recommend this method if your hands aren’t as steady or you’re afraid you may pull too hard and damage a cable. Step 3: Remove the battery I’ll preface this section by saying the plastic battery tabs to pull to release them are useless. They break off and/or bend the battery. You can try that method but I suggest following my instructions below instead. Start by removing the two screws shown in the photo below. This shield covers the battery connector itself. Use your #000 screwdriver for this. Now use your spudger tool in order to gently pry the connector off the board as shown. We are now ready to remove the battery, which is the hardest part and must be done with extreme caution as to prevent puncturing it or causing damage to the logic board. I use the iSesamo opening tool for battery removal because it’s pliable and that means it’s more delicate. You may use the flat end of a spudger tool if you’d like but I’ve found them to break off rather easily. In order to remove the battery, start at the top left corner and put your opening tool between the casing and the battery. Gently start lifting upwards. You should hear adhesive start to crack. Now slowly move your tool around the left side of the battery and gently pry upwards a little at a time. Each time you should hear more adhesive cracking. Just apply pressure evenly and move your pry tool each time. By the time you get to the bottom the adhesive should be nearly free, or free enough for you to grab hold of the battery and carefully break the rest and remove it. It is important while performing the steps above that you’re careful to not puncture or bend the battery. Just take your time and you’ll get there. Don’t rush and don’t force it. Step 4: Unplug the dock connector assembly Remove the dock connector shield by removing the 1 screw holding it in place. Use your #000 Phillips screwdriver for this. Next pry up the cable using your spudger tool. Also pry up the round connector cable which is found a little further down on the logic board and is pictured below. Step 5: Remove the logic board Note: It is important to make sure you do not mix up screws to the logic board. Place them in an order you know you will remember! Start at the top of the logic board by removing the two screws holding the top silver shield in place. They are located to the left of the camera assembly. Once you’ve removed the two screws with your #000 Phillips screwdriver, you can remove the shield. Note that it may still be tucked on the side of the camera so just be sure you don’t bend or tear it when removing it. Use your #000 Phillips screwdriver again to remove the two screws in the top frame of your IPHONE 5 as shown in the photo below. At the top of the logic board, unplug the three cables shown below using your nylon spudger tool. Be very careful not to tear any of them or rip off the connectors in the sockets. They are very delicate so treat them as such. The reason we are doing this is because one of the screws you’ll need to remove in the next step is somewhat hidden by these cables. Now remove the five screws shown in the photo below. Three of them you’ll need a flat head screwdriver for while the other two screws use a standard #000 Phillips screwdriver. You can tell the difference because the ones you use the flat head for the taller standoff screws. You should easily be able to tell the difference. Now remove the SIM tray from your IPHONE 5. You can use a paperclip, SIM removal tool, or even the end of your security screwdriver should fit. You can now start lifting the logic board up from the bottom. However, do not pull up all the way. There is a cable still attached at the top as illustrated in the photo below. Carefully push down on this cable using your nylon spudger tool while gently lifting up on the board in order to free it. Once the round wifi connector has disconnected, you can pull the logic board completely out of your IPHONE 5. Note: In rare instances, the wifi antenna has somehow gotten unplugged from the logic board. If the round connector in the last step was not plugged in, that very well could have been your problem. Try re-connecting it and reassembling to see if you even need a new wifi antenna first. Step 6: Remove the vibrator assembly Using your #000 screwdriver, remove the three screws shown in the photo below in order to remove the vibrator assembly. Gently lift the vibrator assembly out of your IPHONE 5, paying attention to its orientation Step 7: Replace the wifi antenna Use the flat end of your nylon spudger tool in order to pry up the wifi antenna. It’s only held down to the rear casing with a bit of adhesive. Now peel off any backing on the new wifi antenna and lay it down in your IPHONE 5 just as you found the old one. A good guide to use is to line up the screw hole are as shown below. Now just feed the line back through as it was before. Step 8: Replace the vibrator assembly Now place the vibrator assembly back into your IPHONE 5 and replace the three screws using your #000 screwdriver. I recommend screwing all three screws in part way so you can line up the contacts — explained in the step below — before tightening them up. It’s important to note the position of the contacts on the bottom of the vibrator assembly and on back casing of your IPHONE 5. Be sure they are making contact once you’re done replacing the vibrator assembly, or it won’t work. Step 9: Replace the logic board Start by reconnecting the round wifi connector at the top. The easiest way to do this is by holding the logic board sideways and reconnecting it. Once it’s connected, simply pivot the board back into place. Be sure when you’re doing this that no cables in the frame get stuck underneath the logic board. Once the board is in place, be sure the camera and flash diffuser are placed correctly. Replace the SIM tray in your IPHONE 5. This is an easy way to be sure your IPHONE 5′s logic board is in place. If the SIM tray won’t go in, do not force it. This means the board is not lined up correctly. Re-align it and try again. Once it slides in easily, you’re in good shape. The SIM tray also serves as a great way to hold the board in place while you replace screws. Now replace the five screws you took out earlier using both the #000 screwdriver and the flat head screwdriver. Replace the two screws at the very top of the logic board using your #000 Phillips screwdriver. You can now re-connect the three cables at the top of the logic board as well as the two cables at the bottom — the round connector cable and the dock connecter cable. Replace the top silver shield and the two screws that hold it in place, use your #000 Phillips screwdriver for this. Step 10: Reconnect the dock connector assembly Now reconnect the round connector at the bottom of the logic board that it connected to the dock assembly. Lastly, reconnect the dock connector cable and replace the shield with your #000 Phillips screwdriver. Step 11: Replace the battery Carefully lay the battery back down into place. Press firmly in order to cause the adhesive to grab hold of the back casing again. Reconnect the battery connector by carefully lining it up and pressing firmly with your finger. Reposition the battery shield and use your #000 screwdriver to replace the two screws. Step 12: Reconnect the display assembly Re-attach the three cables for the display back to the board of your IPHONE 5. Carefully re-position the display shield over the cables once you’re sure they are secure. Replace the three screws you removed previously using your ##000 screwdriver. Sometimes the top right screw is not magnetized and may be a little tricky to get back in. I normally guide it in with my finger and then use the screwdriver. Makes for an easier job. Now snap the display back down and into place. Be sure to line up the grooves in the top of the screen inside the frame. If you are facing resistance, do not force the display down. Make sure everything is lined up properly and that the clips in the top are aligned properly. Then try gently pressing down again. Replace the two screws that sit on either side of the Lightning dock using your security screwdriver. Step 13: Test the new wifi antenna Go ahead and turn on your IPHONE 5 again. In order to fully test the new wifi antenna, perform the following steps: Go into Settings > Wifi and make sure you can see all available wireless networks Connect to a wireless network you have previously connected to before and verify data works Connect to a wireless network you have never connected to before and verify data works — if you need to you can just forget a previously joined network and join it again Pay attention to signal strength and compare to another smartphone if you can Attempt to tether to another device to verify that tethering works Turn your IPHONE 5 into a personal hotspot and confirm that you can connect another device to it If all checks out okay, you’re good to go!

WWDC 2014 preview: iOS 8, OS X 10.10, and more!

Posted by phil under The IPhone Blog on Samedi mai 31, 2014

WWDC 2014 kicks off Monday at 10am PDT with Apple’s first keynote of the year. Apple will be streaming it live and iMore will be there bringing you in-depth commentary and analysis. There’s a real electricity in the air this year. iOS 8 and especially OS X 10.10 seem to be generating real excitement and that excites us. So, based on what’s happened in the past, what could Apple be planning for the WWDC 2014 future? Apple values Apple’s CEO Tim Cook will likely kick off the show, his show now, with a welcome to all the developers attending the conference, and a look at how Apple is doing in 2014. That could include some mention of the recent Apple/Beats acquisition. Cook will also do what he does best — express Apple’s core values. Cook deeply believes in making great products, and before they start rolling out the what, he’ll once again tell us the why. Videos could roll. Apple Stores While Tim Cook previously updated us on Apple Retail, now that Angela Ahrendts has officially started as the new senior vice president of Apple Retail and Online, how better to get her off to a great start than bringing her up on stage? The next chapter in Apple Store starts now, and the vision for it could well start at WWDC. iOS 8 Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi will likely take the stage to show off the \ »tent pole\ » features of iOS 8. iOS got its big new redesign last year, along with some great new features like Control Center and and background refresh. That means iOS 8 can focus on refinements this year, both in style and in substance. The WWDC banners show iOS 8 under water. Whether that represents fluidity, depth, or mutability remains to be seen. Given the emphasis on OS X 10.10 this year (see below), what exactly Apple has time and resources to get into iOS 8, and what gets pushed back to iOS 8.1 or even iOS 9 is hard to say for certain. Healthbook has been in the works for while. Transit directions for Maps as well. There’ve been a lot more rumors as well, and there’s a lot of stuff we want to see above and beyond the rumors. Read the complete iOS 8 rumor round-up Read our complete iOS 8 wish-list iCloud and iTunes Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of services has spent the last couple events showing us new versions of iWork and iLife, including iWork for iCloud. Two years ago iCloud was facing significant developer push-back. Last year Apple mea culpa’d and moved on. Could there be something on tap for this year to take it to the next level? Apple also now owns Beats and while incredibly recent, could Beats music get some attention on stage? Could we see the first part of Apple’s downloads + radio + streaming plans? iTunes Radio hasn’t gotten the international push anyone hoped for. Beats Music is almost brand new. TV and Movie subscriptions and streaming is still a battle being fought. iCloud storage is still completely out of line with the rest of the market. Photo and video backup is still a problem in need of fixing. Cue’s section of WWDC will be among the most interesting to watch. OS X 10.10 Craig Federighi will be back on stage for OS X 10.10. The Mac operating system is reportedly getting its iOS 7 moment this year — its redesign and reconceptualization. How depth, deferences, and clarity translate to the Mac, if indeed those same priorities translate, remains to be seen. Yet familiarity is good, evolution is good, and taking the Mac into a new visual era to match its new naming era will be good. Speaking of which, banners suggest OS X Yosemite might be the next name in the California places series. Beyond the look and the name rumor has it this is going to be a BIG update. That may even include some significant API changes for developers. Either way, it’s great to see the Mac getting attention. OS X 10.10 rumor roundup The Mac Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, typically shows off new hardware. Previous years have seen both the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro updated at WWDC. This year the MacBook Air has already gotten its speed bump, so that leaves one or both MacBook Pros. Those, and iMac and even Mac Pro speed bumps could just as easily get sent out as press releases, however, and never make the stage. I’ve heard nothing about a new Mac mini, but the Mac mini hasn’t been updated in so long that if Apple does have something, anything like a Haswell model up their sleeves, we could see that either in a press release or, if a new design is involved, on stage. There’s also the question of new Thunderbolt 2 displays. The Mac Pro and MacBook Pro both support 4K and Apple currently doesn’t have their own 4K display on the market. Typically iMacs get the new screens before the displays do, but 4K could be an exception to that rule. Retina MacBook Airs are harder to see. The Mac is tied to Intel’s roadmap and if the Retina MacBook Air is still on the Broadwell platform, and Haswell isn’t do-able, we’ll have to wait until later this year when Broadwell is available before they can ship. Regarding ARM Macs IPHONEs, IPADs, and iWatches See you this fall! Thanks everyone! Just as Tim Cook starts the show, so does he end it, rounding up everything that’s been announced and welcoming developers to enjoy their week. There might be a video or an ad. There might just be a summation of Apple’s vision. But it’ll close the show off in grand fashion. Then the public part of WWDC will be over and the closed developer sessions will begin. And hey, if you are a developer, Apple will be streaming both the State of the Union and the Apple Design Awards live this year, so even if you don’t have a ticket, you can watch along! Your WWDC 2014 predictions? That’s some of what I think we’ll see — and won’t see — come the WWDC 2014 keynote on Monday. Let me know what you expect!

Posted by phil under IPAD, The IPhone Blog on Samedi mai 31, 2014

It’s a post-apocalyptic trip through the original and T2, with a dash of T3, T4, and Sarah Connor Chronicles thrown in for good measure.

Gi Bike : le vélo du futur se connecte à l’iPhone

Posted by phil under IPhon on Samedi mai 31, 2014

Il n’y a rien de plus ennuyeux que de rester bloqué dans les bouchons. C’est d’ailleurs pour cela que j’ai choisi de me déplacer uniquement à vélo. En plus de cela, c’est bon pour le compte en banque, pour la santé et la planète. Bref, tout le monde est gagnant ! Le petit point négatif c’est que j’habite dans une ville ou les pentes sont parfois vraiment très raides. Du coup, certains endroits deviennent difficilement accessibles c’est pourquoi j’ai décidé de me tourner vers un vélo à assistance électrique. Il en existe de nombreux modèles, mais celui que je m’apprête à vous présenter a su séduire mon côté geek : Avec un design futuriste qui ne laissera pas indifférent, le Gibike fait la part belle à l’IPHONE. En effet, le vélo embarque un support qui va maintenir le smartphone en place, mais c’est loin d’être tout. GiBike communique avec l’IPHONE grâce à une application. Guidage GPS, calcul de la vitesse, contrôle des fonctionnalités du vélo comme la gestion de la batterie et de son autonomie d’une soixantaine de kilomètres sont au programme. Encore plus fort, le vélo peut se verrouiller tout seul si l’IPHONE s’éloigne. Tout serait presque parfait si ce vélo ne coutait pas le prix d’une petite voiture d’occasion. Encore à la recherche de financement sur le site kickstarter, le Gibike est affiché 3765 $. Pas certain qu’à ce prix là j’ose le laisser un jour sans surveillance dans la rue… Suivez l’actualité iPhon.fr Devenez fan sur Facebook Suivez nous sur Twitter Abonnez vous au fil RSS Vous aimez ?

A decade ago I spent thousands of dollars and spent months shooting, developing, and editing photos for a book I was working on. It was an incredibly expensive, incomprehensibly wasteful process. Now I get not only less expensive but better photos with the IPHONE 5s and apps in my pocket. and that’s nothing compared to what Robin Jasmer is getting with his IPHONE 5 and Photoshop Express: I am French and live in Denmark. I take pictures with my IPHONE 5 and edit them with photoshop express app on the IPHONE. I don’t use a Mac or PC to edit my pictures. I do it as a hobby and amateur, during my free time. I started about a year ago and I enjoy it a lot. John Gruber’s take on Daring Fireball is profound: Lost amidst all the talk of \ »phones\ » is the fact that Apple has become one of the leading camera companies in the world. It’s a new ballgame when your camera itself serves as your editing device. Come Monday I’ll be sitting in the WWDC 2014 keynote with a Canon 5D Mark III and 70-200mm Sigma lens. I bet I won’t even need that in a few more years.
