How to get around with Apple Maps’ Look Around in iOS 13 | Cult of Mac

your area has coverage, that is. Look Around is just getting started, and covers very few places. Street View, on the other hand, is available for pretty much anywhere, including underwater, up mountains and on hiking trails.

Why is Look Around better? Well, it’s faster, for one. And it just looks nicer. The images are super-high-resolution and full-screen. Using it on a 13-inch iPad Pro feels like taking a virtual street tour of a neighborhood.

Here’s why so many apps are asking to use Bluetooth on iOS 13 | The Verge

Apple’s new iOS 13 update adds a new privacy measure that requires apps to get your consent in order to use your device’s Bluetooth. After installing the latest version of iOS, trust me when I say you’ll be surprised by the number of apps asking for Bluetooth permission the next time you open them. Some might seem very strange (like Dunkin’ Donuts in my case), but others probably won’t make you think twice about giving the thumbs-up.

Facebook suspends tens of thousands of apps following data investigation | The Washington Post

Facebook revealed Friday that it had suspended “tens of thousands” of apps that may have mishandled users' personal data, part of an investigation sparked by the social giant's entanglement with Cambridge Analytica.

The suspensions — far more than the hundreds against which Facebook has taken action against in the past — occurred for a “variety of reasons,” the company said in a blog post, without elaborating. They were associated with about 400 developers.

Google Maps incognito mode is in testing, along with eyes-free navigation

Google Maps has received plenty of love in 2019, but the search company is reportedly hard at work on two more additions to the mapping service.

The company is testing an incognito mode in the preview version of Google Maps (version 10.26), according to Android Police. Google Chrome‘s incognito mode doesn’t record your browser history on the device or your Google account, and a similar principle is in effect here.

HP printers try to send data back to HP about your devices and what you print | Robert Heaton

Last week my in-laws politely but firmly asked me to set up their new HP printer. I protested that I’m completely clueless about that sort of thing, despite my tax-return-job-title of “software engineer”. Still remonstrating, I was gently bundled into their study with an instruction pamphlet, a cup of tea, a promise to unlock the door once I’d printed everyone’s passport forms, and a warning not to try the window because the roof tiles are very loose.

At first the setup process was so simple that even a computer programmer could do it. But then, after I had finished removing pieces of cardboard and blue tape from the various drawers of the machine, I noticed that the final step required the downloading of an app of some sort onto a phone or computer. This set off my crapware detector.

Google Pixel 4 XL 5G rumored to arrive with more power than 4 and 4 XL | TechRadar

As well as the widely-rumored Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, it looks like we could see a Google Pixel 4 XL 5G, which wouldn't just have faster data, but also more power.

At least, that's what a Geekbench 5 listing spotted by IndiaShopps suggests. The phone in the listing is unambiguously called the 'Google Pixel 4 XL 5G' and it's shown as having 8GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 855 chipset.

Faster Wi-Fi officially launches today - The Verge

The next generation of Wi-Fi has been trickling out over the past year, but this week, its launch is going to accelerate. The Wi-Fi Alliance, the organization that oversees implementation of the Wi-Fi standard, is launching its official Wi-Fi 6 certification program. That might sound boring, but it means the Wi-Fi 6 standard is truly ready to go, and tech companies will soon be able to advertise their products — mostly brand new ones — as certified to properly support Wi-Fi 6.

iOS 13's offline device finder already helped recover a lost iPad | iMore

ith the release of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 Apple will introduce the updated and renamed Find My app. Part of the update includes the ability to locate devices even when they are offline. And it's already done its job with one Reddit user locating a lost Wi-Fi-only iPad at an airport.
..
The way this is made possible is pretty mind-blowing. Users mark their devices as lost and then other peoples' iPhones, iPads, and Macs effectively start looking for them via an encrypted Bluetooth signal. If a lost devices is spotted, its location is then sent back to Apple which in turn forwards it to the Apple ID that the device is registered with.

Multiple camera simultaneous recording coming to iPhone XS and iPhone XR, not just iPhone 11 | 9to5Mac

At its event last week, Apple previewed a new version of Filmic Pro running on the iPhone 11 Pro. It was a compelling demo, with the app able to record from multiple cameras simultaneously, like recording the front and back camera together, or filming using the new ultra-wide and standard wide cameras for additional coverage.

However, the good news is that simultaneous multi-cam sessions are not only available on the iPhone 11. The feature is also supported by the iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and the 2018 iPad Pro…
