New iOS 13 feature helps you purge unwanted app subscriptions

TwitterFacebook

A new iOS 13 feature could address one of the most annoying aspects of the App Store: unwanted subscriptions. 

The iPhone maker is once again trying to tame overly aggressive subscriptions with a new feature that will make it far easier to unsubscribe from subscriptions. The feature was spotted in the iOS 13 developer beta, so it won’t be widely available until iOS 13 officially launches later this year.

With the update, which was noticed by MacStories editor Federico Vitcci, deleting an app that you’ve previously purchased a subscription for will remind you of your subscription and allow you to cancel it. Read more…

ENTERTAINMENT DEAL UPDATE:

Apple Watch just got one step closer to ditching the iPhone

Apple Watch update

When the first Apple Watch launched in 2015, it was inextricably linked to Apple’s iPhone. Much of the Apple Watch’s functionality depended on you also having an iOS device on hand, but over the years, that link began to sever as the company made the wearable more autonomous. The most obvious example of this was the addition of standalone cellular capabilities on Apple Watch Series 3, but another big move may be around the corner.

First noticed by VentureBeat’s Jeremy Horwitz, the latest beta release for watchOS 6 adds the ability to conduct over-the-air software updates from the Settings menu of an Apple Watch. If you happen to be on watchOS 6 beta 2, you can see for yourself by heading to Settings > General > Software Update.

The new eye-controlled channel changer that Comcast debuted today is a futuristic-sounding marvel that will certainly make life a little more enjoyable for people with physical disabilities who can now use merely their eyes to control their TVs. The just-announced Xfinity X1 eye control feature is a web-based remote control for tablets and computers that Comcast says pairs with an existing eye gaze system and gives viewers the ability to perform tasks like changing the channel, setting a recording, searching for a show and more, all with just a glance.

Every steak you cook will come out perfect if you use this $69 device

Best Meat Thermometer 2019

There’s only one way to know when your steak or any other meat is cooked perfectly: you stick in your meat thermometer and check out the internal temperature. If it’s too cold, you keep cooking it. If it’s within a few degrees of your target temperature, you remove it from the heat and let it rest. If it’s too hot, well, you’re too late and your steak won’t taste as good as it should. If you want to make sure that never happens again, get yourself a MEATER True Wireless Smart Meat Thermometer. It sticks in your steak, chicken, or anything else you’re cooking and stays there while you cook and connects wirelessly to your smartphone the entire time. Once your meat comes to temperature, you get an alert and you’re good to go!

MEATER Up to 33 Feet Original True Wireless Smart Meat Thermometer for the Oven Grill Kitchen B…: $ 69.00

  • ► Guided Cook System: Walks you through every step of the cooking process to guarantee perfect and consistent results. You can also set up custom alerts / notifications based on temperature and/or time.

9 hidden iOS 13 features you need to know about

TwitterFacebook

iOS 13 is going to be a whale of an update, available for free this fall for iPhone SE, 6S, and newer models. It comes with much heralded features like a system-wide dark mode, redesigned Photos app, new Memoji customizations, and more. 

But as with previous versions of iOS, the software update also has a whole bunch of lesser-known features that aren’t as flashy but are greatly welcome. Here are the eight we’re most excited for — and one that we wish Apple would take back.

1. Unobtrusive volume control

People hate the current volume control. When you press the volume buttons on your iOS device, a big volume graphic pops up in the middle of the screen, blocking your content.  Read more…

Study reveals how screwed we’d be during a GPS outage

GPS Tracking

The US government’s National Institutes of Standards and Technology recently decided to sponsor what appears to be the most comprehensive look to date at the value of GPS technology relative to the US economy as a whole. The results also shed some pretty interesting light on how much of a financial blow would result from a widespread outage of GPS technology, whether it’s the result of malicious activity or something like severe weather in space hampering or destroying satellites.

You can probably guess where this is going.

Kraft wants to trick kids into eating veggies by calling salad dressing ‘frosting’

kraft salad frosting

Keeping children on a course for healthy eating is a challenge, and convincing a crabby youngster to chomp on some broccoli is often an exercise in futility. If you’re a parent who knows what it’s like to try to get a kid to eat vegetables, Kraft wants you to know that they sympathize.

In fact, the company is apparently so sympathetic that it wants to help parents of picky kids lie about the food that hits the dinner table. Kraft will be disguising its ranch salad dressing as “frosting” to give parents a new weapon in the war over nutrition.
