Apple TV+: Everything We Know So Far

Apple is working on dozens of original TV shows and movies with high-profile directors, producers, and actors, with all of that content set to be available through a new Apple TV+ app that's going to be released this fall. In the guide below, we've rounded up everything that we know about Apple's new streaming TV service. What is Apple TV+? Apple TV+ is the name of Apple's new television service that will be home to the original TV shows and movies that are funded by Apple. There are more than 30 in the works, with a list available in our dedicated Apple TV show guide. Apple is aiming to compete with existing streaming services like Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, HBO, Showtime, and others with its original content and has brought on huge names ranging from Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams to Oprah. Well-known actors and actresses like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell are involved in Apple's upcoming TV shows. What's Apple's goal with original content? Apple says that it wants to make Apple TV+ the home for the "world's most creative storytellers," providing funding and a platform for TV shows, movies, and documentaries with "inspiriting and authentic stories with emotional depth and compelling characters." Apple wants Apple TV+ to offer the "highest quality" original storytelling available. Are there ads? Nope. Apple says that Apple TV+ will be ad-free and available to watch on demand. What's the price? Apple hasn't announced pricing for Apple TV+ yet, but if the company wants to be competitive with Hulu, Netflix,

All of Apple's Original TV Shows and Movies

Apple has more than two dozen original television shows and movies in the works that will debut on Apple TV+ later this year, and in this guide, we've rounded up everything that Apple is working on, including content that we know about and partnerships that Apple has established. Details about TV shows and movies become clearer as these shows are cast and as episodes are filmed, so for some of these titles, we don't have a lot of information at this time. This guide is updated on a regular basis with all new original content details. Amazing Stories "Amazing Stories" is a science fiction and horror anthology series that was created by Steven Spielberg, which ran from 1985 to 1987. Apple has teamed up with Spielberg to revive the show. Apple has ordered 10 new episodes of "Amazing Stories" and is spending more than $5 million per episode. Notable names: Steven Spielberg is set to executive produce. The Morning Show "The Morning Show," as the name suggests, is a morning talk show drama that will take a look inside the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning. Apple has signed a deal for two seasons of the show, with the two key stars, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, set to earn $1.25 million per episode. Notable names: Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, Billy Crudup, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw will star in the show. For All Mankind (Filming Finished) "For All Mankind" is a space drama that explores what might have happened in the world if the global space race had never ended. Notable names: Joel

Apple Card: All the Details on Apple's Upcoming Credit Card

Later in the year, Apple is going to launch a new credit card that's linked to Apple Pay and built right into the Wallet app, which iPhone users can sign up for. Apple is partnering with Goldman Sachs for the card, which is going to be optimized for Apple Pay but will still work like a traditional credit card for all of your transactions. There's a lot of fine print associated with the new Apple Card, so we've created this guide to provide details on what you can expect when it launches in the summer. Signing Up for Apple Card According to Apple, signing up for Apple Card will be as simple as opening up the Wallet app, tapping on the Apple Card interface, and walking through the activation steps. Once you've signed up for Apple Card, it will be available for use immediately for digital purchases, suggesting Apple will have some kind of pre-qualified application process in place. Apple says availability is subject to credit approval, so you need to qualify for Apple Card just like you do with any other credit card. For traditional purchases, you will need to wait until Apple ships you the physical Apple Card. Using Apple Card with Apple Pay Apple Card is designed to work with any other credit or debit card stored in the Wallet app for use with Apple Pay. You can set it as the default card and use it for in store purchases on iPhone and online purchases on Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Using Apple Card for Non-Apple Pay Purchases If you need to pay for purchases that can't be made with Apple Pay, you can use the physical version of the Apple

Apple Arcade: What We Know So Far

Apple is working on a new gaming related service, Apple Arcade, which is going to let App Store users pay a monthly fee to get access to over 100 premium games that are being developed for the service. This guide features everything that you need to know about Apple Arcade, which is set to be released later this year. What is Apple Arcade? Apple Arcade is Apple's upcoming premium subscription gaming service that will let users download and play included games for one monthly fee with no added costs. What's Apple Arcade cost? Apple hasn't provided pricing for Apple Arcade yet, so there's no word on what it's going to be priced at. Is Family Sharing included? Yes. A single Apple Arcade subscription will let up to six family members access games. You just need to set up Family Sharing, which requires all family members to have the same credit card associated with their Apple IDs. What games will be included? Apple is teaming up with both indie developers and big name gaming companies to create "new and exclusive" games for the Apple Arcade service. All the content that is released through Apple Arcade will be freshly created for Apple Arcade, so it won't include existing games. Apple is teaming up with Annapurna Interactive, Bossa Studios, Cartoon Network, Finji, Giant Squid, Klei Entertainment, Konami, LEGO, Mistwalker Corporation, SEGA, Snowman, ustwo games and a bunch of other developers. Apple is subsidizing many of these games and contributing to the development costs to create them. Apple says it is handpicking the games that will be

Apple News+ Guide: Everything You Need to Know

Apple at its March event introduced a new subscription service for Apple News, called Apple News+. Apple News+ is a new subscription service in the Apple News app that lets you access magazines and paywalled content from some news sites. You have to pay a subscription fee to access Apple News+, and it is an add-on service that lives right alongside Apple's existing free Apple News content. This guide covers everything that you need to know about Apple News+, from pricing and availability to news sites and magazines included. Apple News+ Availability Apple News+ content is available right in the Apple News app through the new Apple News+ tab that shows up on iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch models running iOS 12.2 and Macs running macOS Mojave 10.14.4. You need to be in the U.S. or Canada to be able to subscribe to and access Apple News content at the current time, though Apple has plans to expand it to additional countries in the future. Apple News+ Pricing Apple News+ costs $9.99 per month in the United States and $12.99 per month in Canada. At the current time, there are no yearly subscription plans available. The $9.99 per month fee gives your entire family access to Apple News+ as long as you have Family Sharing set up. Apple News Free Trial Apple is offering a 30-day free trial for Apple News+, and we have instructions on how to sign up here. You won't get charged the $9.99 per month fee until the free trial expires, but your free trial ends right when you cancel. That means there's no option to sign up, cancel, and then use the service for a

5GE: AT&T's Misleading Label on iPhone

After upgrading to iOS 12.2, the newest version of iOS, AT&T users might see a "5GE" icon in place of "LTE" for their cellular connection. This is AT&T's misleading name for an enhanced 4G LTE network, and as explained in the guide below, is not actual 5G connectivity. Why am I seeing a 5GE icon? According to AT&T, customers who upgrade to iOS 12.2 will see the "5GE" icon when connected to what AT&T is calling a 5GE network. This is an AT&T-only thing, so it's limited to AT&T customers. It's also only showing up on iOS devices running iOS 12.2 or later, but the 5GE icon has also previously rolled out to some Android devices. What is 5GE? 5GE, or 5G "Evolution" is the name that AT&T is using in areas where 4G LTE technologies like three-way carrier aggregation, 4x4 MIMO, and 256 QAM are available. These features making existing wireless networks faster, provided your smartphone supports them. These are technologies that have already been in place on AT&T's network and networks from Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile. Your phone has probably already been connecting to AT&T's LTE networks with these capabilities even before AT&T added its 5GE icon. AT&T, in fact, started rolling out support for these technologies in 2017, as did other U.S. carriers. AT&T says that in areas with these upgraded LTE technologies, customers can reach peak theoretical wireless speeds of up to 400 megabits per second, but in real-world usage that ends up being closer to 40 megabits per second. These are LTE speeds that are available on many other carriers to customers using

Black AirPods: Where Are They?

Leading up to the launch of the newest AirPods, many held out hope for the launch of a black color option for Apple's popular wireless headphones. Black AirPods have been on the wishlist of many since the launch of the original AirPods. In fact, early mockups by designer Martin Hajek showed what they might look like back in 2016. The first actual word of Black AirPods came only in February from MySmartPrice which claimed to have heard from "trusted" sources that the new AirPods would come with better bass response, a matte finish, and come in both white and black colors. That report was later corroborated by an Economic Daily News report which also claimed a new surface coating, wireless charging, and a black color option. However, it may be that that report could have been sourced from the original MySmartPrice report. The problem is that the rumors were apparently wrong, and Apple didn't release a black option for the 2019 AirPods. Still Want Black AirPods? If you still want Black AirPods, there are third-party options. The most well known is from a company called ColorWare. ColorWare offers custom colored AirPods. For a $40 premium, you can still get the Black AirPods that you want. The catch is you have to buy them through ColorWare. If you already own AirPods, you won't be able to get them colored by the company. Official Release If you want to wait for an official AirPods option, you'll have to wait until at least 2020. Even then, we aren't certain that Apple will offer a black color option for that model either. That said, Apple's Beats

Apple's 2019 Event Plans: New Products and Software Coming in June and September

In an average year, Apple holds three to four events. There's usually a spring event in March, the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, a September event that's focused on iPhone and Apple Watch, and sometimes an October event if there are iPads or Macs expected in the fall. In this guide, we're keeping track of all of the Apple events that are on the horizon and what we're expecting to see at each one, so make sure to check back in regularly. WWDC (June 3 to June 7) Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference takes place in June, and this year, it will kick off on June 3. The event starts with a keynote where Apple will unveil new versions of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS. We've already heard a few details on what to expect in iOS 13 and macOS 10.15, with the info we know below. iOS 13 Dark mode will be the key feature of iOS 13, and there will be a redesigned Home screen for iPhone and iPad. The files app is getting updated, and we'll see some iPad-specific features like tabs for apps and a multitasking feature for using two windows of the same app side by side. Read more in our iOS 13 roundup. macOS 10.15 macOS 10.15 will expand cross-platform app functionality to developers, allowing apps made for the iPad to be easily ported over to macOS. macOS 10.15 won't support 32-bit apps, so expect some of your older apps that haven't been updated in a while to quit working. Read more in our macOS 10.15 roundup. watchOS 6 In watchOS 6, Apple is planning to introduce an Apple Watch App Store, letting users download apps right on their wrist.

New AirPods 2 vs. Old AirPods 1 Comparison

Apple in March debuted second-generation AirPods, featuring several updates over the original massively popular wireless earbuds of the same name. So what's improved in the new AirPods compared to the older model, and what's stayed the same? Read on to find out. Price of New AirPods vs. Old AirPods Buying Apple's original AirPods was straightforward as they came with a single $159 price tag, but that's changed with the second-generation models. The new AirPods still start at the same price, but customers now have the option to buy the earbuds with a Wireless Charging Case for $199. Apple is also offering the Wireless Charging Case separately for $79, so if you already own first-generation AirPods you can buy the case and charge your earbuds using any Qi-compatible charging mat. The Wireless Charging Case still includes a Lightning port so you can charge your AirPods via cable if you prefer. Apple's new AirPods can be ordered on Apple's website and will be available in Apple Stores and resellers from March 26, 2019. Apple no longer lists first-generation AirPods on its website, but you should be able to find them elsewhere online at a lower price now that the new AirPods are available. Design of New AirPods vs. Old AirPods Apple's new AirPods look identical to the first-generation models, save for a single LED on the front of the Wireless Charging Case. This light simply tells you the charging status of the AirPods when you place them on a Qi-compatible charging mat. On the standard charging case, which came with the original AirPods, the LED was

2019 10.5-Inch iPad Air vs. 2017 10.5-Inch iPad Pro

Apple has launched a new 10.5-inch iPad Air that can be viewed as a lower-priced successor to the second-generation 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which has been discontinued. Below, we compare tech specs and features. Pricing is key, with the new iPad Air starting at $499 with Wi-Fi only and $629 with LTE connectivity in the United States. The 10.5-inch iPad Pro started at $649 with Wi-Fi and $779 with LTE connectivity until it was discontinued. Both have 64GB or 256GB of storage, but the new iPad Air lacks a 512GB option. Design wise, the iPads have a lot of similarities, including dimensions, thinness, and overall appearance. Both have a Touch ID home button, a headphone jack, and a Lightning connector, but the new iPad Air has only two speakers along the bottom, whereas the 10.5-inch iPad Pro has four speakers. The new iPad Air is available in Silver, Space Gray, and a newer Gold finish that essentially merges the previously separate Gold and Rose Gold finishes that were available for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. Both iPads feature a fully laminated Retina display with a resolution of 2224×1668 pixels and 264 PPI, True Tone, and support for the P3 wide color space, but the new 10.5-inch iPad Air has a 60Hz refresh rate while the 10.5-inch iPad Pro has a so-called ProMotion display with up to a 120Hz refresh rate. Processor wise, the new iPad Air sports Apple's A12 Bionic chip compared to a slower A10X Fusion chip in the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. The new iPad Air also has dedicated hardware called the "Neural Engine" that handles artificial intelligence and machine learning

Apple Music: Our Complete Guide

Apple Music is Apple's streaming music service, comparable to other similar streaming services like Spotify, Amazon Music Unlimited, Google Play Music, Tidal, and others. Apple Music boasts access to a total of 50 million songs. Content can be streamed or downloaded for offline play, and there are also song and genre-based radio stations available along with the curated Beats 1 radio station. Apple Music integrates with your existing iCloud Music Library, so you can combine Apple Music songs with songs that you have previously purchased on iTunes all in one unified location. Apple Music's Unique Features All of the streaming services have differences, and with Apple Music, Apple has focused on human curation. While there are some algorithmically created playlists, a lot of the content highlighted on Apple Music is done by Apple Music editors. Apple offers regularly updated personalized playlists in a "For You" tab, including a favorites mix, a chill mix, a friends mix, and a new music mix, along with other playlist options that are updated on a daily basis. Apple Music also often has exclusive album releases, documentaries, and music videos that aren't available on other platforms as a way to lure subscribers. Beats 1, Apple Music's 24/7 live radio station, is also one of the service's most unique features. It features songs curated by DJs along with a multitude of special shows, sometimes created by artists. What's Included in a Subscription Unlimited access to Apple Music songs on demand Personalized algorithmic playlists Curated

Apple Music vs. Amazon Music Unlimited

Apple Music has become immensely popular since it launched in 2015, and now has over 56 million subscribers worldwide. So how does it stack up against ecommerce giant Amazon's rival premium streaming service in terms of features, music catalog, and cost? Keep reading to find out. Amazon actually has two music services, so before we go any further it's worth explaining the difference. If you have an Amazon Prime membership, you already have access to Amazon Prime Music, as it's bundled in with the service. In fact, Prime Music and Amazon Music Unlimited are similar in many ways, so if you are a Prime member and you're interested in Amazon's standalone streaming service then it's worth getting to know Prime Music first. Both services share the same interface and apps, and offer similar features like the ability to download songs, albums and playlists for offline listening. The main difference between the two offerings is the number of songs you have access to. Amazon Prime Music has two million songs in its catalog, but paying the extra for Amazon Music Unlimited gets you access to 50 million songs, including the majority of new releases. Subscriptions and Plans An individual Apple Music subscription costs $9.99 per month in the United States, with slight price variations in other countries and territories. Membership means you can stream Apple's music catalog, download music and videos for offline listening, and get access to new releases and exclusives, as well as a back catalog of shows broadcast on Apple's Beats 1 radio station. The price you pay for an

Apple Music vs. Tidal

Apple Music and Tidal are well known for their exclusive releases and both streaming services have been around since 2015. In that time, Apple Music has become the most popular streaming service in the US, but Tidal has a dedicated subscriber base for a variety of reasons. Dubbed as the artists' music platform, Tidal is owned by Jay-Z and a variety of other successful music artists, and the company makes a point of paying artists more per stream than Apple Music. But is it a better service for the average listener? Read on to learn what both have to offer. Subscriptions and Plans An individual Apple Music subscription costs $9.99 per month in the United States, with slight price variations in other countries and territories. Membership means you can stream Apple's music catalog, download music and videos for offline listening, and get exclusive access to new releases and exclusives, as well as a back catalog of shows broadcast on Apple's Beats 1 radio station. Tidal also offers a $9.99 per month individual subscription, although again prices may vary in other regions. For the audiophiles out there, Tidal also offers a $19.99 per month individual subscription with lossless "High Fidelity" sound quality and high definition videos. Apple Music price plans An Apple Music student subscription costs $4.99 and requires you to sign up using your educational institution credentials. Tidal offers two student plans: $4.99 for the Premium service and $9.99 for the HiFi service. Note that students need to re-verify their eligibility every 12 months for both services.

Apple Music vs. Google Play Music

Need help deciding whether Apple or Google has the right music streaming service for you? Then keep reading. Apple Music launched in 2015 and was a relative latecomer to the streaming services market, but Apple's continual development of the platform has made it into one of the most popular choices for enjoying digital music. Google's music strategy on the other hand has been confusing in recent years, so before we dive in with a deeper look at the two streaming service rivals, here's a quick recap. Google Music Google launched its original Play Music streaming service in 2011. Like Apple Music, Play Music gives you access to a vast music library, music recommendations, radio stations, and offline listening, all for a monthly fee. In a unique contribution to the streaming services field, Google Play Music also lets all Google account holders (i.e. not just subscribers) upload up to 50,000 tracks from their existing music library to the cloud, for storage and online streaming. In May 2017, Google launched an on-demand ad-supported music streaming service called YouTube Music, shortly followed by YouTube Music Premium – a revamped version of its ad-free YouTube Red subscription service with a renewed focus on original programming. The rebranded service includes personalized playlists, intelligent search, support for background playback on mobile and music downloads for offline listening. It also offers access to remixes, covers and live versions that aren't available on other platforms. Initially Google said its new YouTube Music service would replace Google

Apple Music vs. Spotify

Apple Music and Spotify are the biggest players in the music streaming space -- and for good reason. Spotify essentially created the market as it exists today and has millions more users globally than any other service, but Apple Music is catching up, thanks to its deep integration in Apple's popular iOS ecosystem. Both Spotify and Apple Music offer as much music and related content as your ears could handle – including exclusive new releases from top artists – and all of it can be streamed ad-free (with Spotify's paid tier) or downloaded for offline play. So which is the best option for you? Keep reading as we pit the two services against each other. Subscriptions and Price Plans An individual Apple Music subscription costs $9.99 per month in the United States, with slight price variations in other countries and territories. Likewise, an individual Spotify subscription or "Premium" plan costs $9.99 per month, with some regional variations. In addition to its paid plan, Spotify also offers a free ad-supported service that allows users to shuffle-play songs, although premium features remain off limits. Both services offer student and family plans for $4.99 per month and $14.99 per month, respectively. Spotify's student offering currently includes additional access to an ad-supported Hulu TV plan and unlimited access to the SHOWTIME streaming service. Apple Music and Spotify family plans meanwhile are very similar. Up to six people can access the services using a personal account for each family member, with the exception that Apple Music members can also

High-Capacity USB-C Battery Pack Comparison and Review

A few years ago, it was difficult to find a USB-C battery pack capable of charging a MacBook at a speed of 30 or 45W, but with Apple and other companies increasingly embracing USB-C technology for everything from smartphones to laptops, high-powered USB-C battery packs have become more readily available. Higher-watt USB-C battery packs are ideal for fast charging iPhones and iPad Pros, providing power for MacBooks and MacBook Air models, and even charging up a MacBook Pro when charging speed isn't an issue. In this guide, I'll be comparing 27, 30, and 45W battery packs with capacities ranging from 19,000 mAh to 26,800 mAh from companies that include Mophie, Anker, RAVPower, Jackery, and ZMI to help MacRumors readers find the best USB-C battery packs.Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD Charger (30W) RAVPower 26800mAh PD Portable Charger (30W) Mophie Powerstation USB-C 3XL (45W) Jackery Supercharge 26800 PD Portable Charger (45W) Anker PowerCore 19000+ PD Portable Charger and USB-C Hub (27W) ZMI USB PD Backup Battery & Hub (45W) USB-C Battery Pack Basics All USB-C battery packs suitable for use with devices like the MacBook or MacBook Pro are large in size and generally just under or over a pound in weight. You're not going to want to stick one of these in your pockets, but they fit into a bag or a backpack. Each of the battery packs we tested are 45W or less, because there are no higher watt battery packs available on the market. They all come in at under 100Wh, which is the limit that you can take on a plane in your carry-on luggage (power banks like

AirPods: Our Complete Guide to Apple's Wireless Earphones

First released in 2016, Apple's AirPods are widely regarded as one of the company's best products in recent years, with the AirPods offering great battery life, portability, simple charging, easy connectivity, and unparalleled Bluetooth range. AirPods are so popular that Apple still has trouble keeping them in stock at times, and two years after launch, it's not uncommon to see an abundance of AirPods out on the street, in movies, in TV shows, and everywhere else you look. If you're new to AirPods, considering buying a pair, or just want to pick up some new tips, this guide is for you. What are AirPods? AirPods are Apple's completely wire-free headphones, which look a bit like the Apple EarPods from older devices, but without the cables. AirPods have Apple-designed tech inside like a special wireless chip called the W1 or H1 (depending on version), an accelerometer for gestures, dual optical sensors, dual beamforming microphones for Siri and phone calls, and a second accelerometer for speech detection. AirPods come with the AirPods Charging Case, which is used for both charging and storage purposes so the AirPods don't get lost. The Charging Case is about the size of a container of dental floss, so it's easily pocketable. A Lightning port at the bottom lets the AirPods and the case be charged with the Lightning cables you already have on hand, and the Wireless Charging Case lets you charge with a Qi wireless charger. How many versions of AirPods are there? The AirPods were first introduced in December 2016, and were refreshed in March 2019, so there

Upcoming Apple Products Guide: Everything We Expect to See in 2019 and Beyond

The MacRumors guide to upcoming products is designed to provide an overview of everything that we're expecting to see from Apple, both in the near and more distant future. Dates listed are not always concrete, but are based on the most recent rumors and information that we have. We're updating the guide on a regular basis, so it will be the go to place to see every Apple product that's on the horizon at a glance. For more detail on the rumors we've heard about each upcoming item, make sure to click on the links to visit our roundups. Coming in Summer Apple Card - Apple is launching a new credit card linked to Apple Pay and built right into the Wallet app, partnering with Goldman Sachs for the card. It will give 3% cash back rewards for Apple-related purchases, 2% rewards for Apple Pay purchases, and 1% cash back on all other purchases. Along with digital support, there will be a physical titanium card for in-person purchases. Coming in September 2019 iPhones - We're expecting three iPhones in 2019 that are similar to the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. We'll get two OLED models (XS and XS Max successors) and one LED model (XR successor), with no significant design changes, though there could be a new frosted glass back and a smaller notch, but rumors are mixed on this last point. The iPhone XS and XS Max successors will feature an improved triple-lens camera while the iPhone XR will use dual-lens cameras and could come in two new colors. We've heard rumors of USB-C, but it ultimately sounds like the 2019 iPhones will stick with Lightning, and we can also expect

Five of the Best Camera Apps on iOS

There's nothing wrong with the stock Camera app that comes on every iPhone, but there are many third-party camera apps available in the App Store that add additional functionality, filters, and other effects that are worth checking out. For our latest YouTube video, we asked MacRumors readers for their favorite camera apps, and compiled a list of the best and most popular options. If you're looking to take your iPhone photography up a notch, make sure to check these out. Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos. Halide Halide, priced at $5.99, was the top pick when we asked for preferred camera apps. More MacRumors readers chose it than any other camera app, which is no surprise because Halide offers a rich feature set. Halide offers up full manual controls for shutter speed, ISO, and white balance, along with a live histogram for perfecting exposure. The swipe-based interface is easy to use, and you can capture photos in RAW, JPG, TIFF, or HEIC formats. There are depth controls for newer iPhones, manual and autofocus tools, and for iPhone XR, there's a Depth Capture feature that works with pets, food, and other items, unlike the native Depth Control feature. Halide just added a new color histogram, which is a nifty option that lets you make sure you have the right exposure to preserve color detail and make colors pop. Halide has a new app coming out in the near future, so keep an eye out for that. ProCam 6 ProCam 6, priced at $5.99, was also a popular choice with MacRumors readers. ProCam offers full manual control options for shutter

What to Do If Your iPhone is Lost or Stolen

iPhones are lost and stolen every day, but luckily Apple has robust tools built into iOS that will keep your data safe and your device unusable if it's misplaced or snatched by a thief. With Find My iPhone, you can locate lost devices, disable them, and even fully erase them, but unless you've been in a situation where you've needed these services, you may not know exactly how they work, what they do, or what information someone can access when they have your device. This guide covers the ins and outs of losing your iPhone (or iPad), including settings that should be enabled beforehand for security purposes, how to use Apple's tools to look for your device, and what happens when it's in someone else's hands.
