The best iOS apps for taking notes with Apple Pencil + iPad Pro | 9to5Mac

I was skeptical of the Apple Pencil when it was first announced, as I assumed it would just be the same as the tacky styluses third-parties had been making for years, but after using it I’ve realized just how wrong I was. The thing that I noticed very early on in my time with the Apple Pencil though, was how crazy good the palm rejection is. Writing with an Apple Pencil on an iPad Pro is nearly as easy as writing on actual paper. As a student, this is a huge factor for me when it comes to note taking, so I decided to dive a little deeper into the apps on iOS that are made for taking notes and are optimized for iPad Pro. Here are some of the ones I would recommend…

MacMost Night Shift

The new Night Shift feature in iOS 9.3 changes the color of your iPad and iPhone’s screen to fit studies that show that a warmer display will make it easier for some people to get to sleep. You can try Night Shift with your iOS device if you read in bed at night to see if it helps you. 

 

25 hidden iPhone features that are really, truly hidden | Fox News

Each of the tips that follow below, however, are completely hidden. There is no indication that these functions exist in iOS, and we guarantee that most users don’t know about them. In fact, we also guarantee that even the savviest iPhone owners among you will find at least one or two things you didn’t already know. In fact, ran this list past a friend who works at Apple and there were a few things that even he didn’t know.

Review: Apple Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro | iLounge

iLounge‘s PHIL DZIKIY @PHILDZIKIY sums up his review of the Apple Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro:

***

When looking at Apple’s Smart Keyboard as a total package, it hits the mark in a number of ways: fit, stand/cover versatility, materials, and design are all top-rate. But if you don’t actually enjoy the experience of typing, these attributes seem decidedly minor. Not to mention that $169 is no small sum for such an accessory. When choosing between the only two Smart Connector keyboard options right now, Logitech’s Create is bulkier and less elegant, but it also offers a better typing experience — with bouncy, backlit keys — at a slightly lower price. One of our editors compared his brief experience with Smart Keyboard to the keys found in Apple’s 12″ MacBook — if you don’t mind those MacBook keys, you’ll probably be OK with Smart Keyboard.

iOS 9.3 Preview – Apple-iPhone JD

iPhone J.D. is the oldest and largest website for lawyers using iPhones and iPads. iPhone J.D. is published by Jeff Richardson, an attorney in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

Jeff Richardson:

This week, Apple posted a page to their website describing new features in the next incremental update to iOS called iOS 9.3.  One of the new features is Night Shift, which changes the color on your iPhone when it is close to bedtime to reduce the blue light from the screen.  If you use your iPhone late at night, studies have shown that the blue light can make it harder for your body to go to sleep.  Apple also added the ability to add a lock to a Note, which you can unlock using your fingerprint, handy if you use a note to store confidential information and someone else is using your iPhone.  Apple is also letting schools put multiple user accounts on an iPad, so that a student can pick up any iPad and see only that student’s files.  Apple hasn’t announced when iOS 9.3 will be available, but my guess is March.
