Apple Pay Cash Promo Video Misses Critical First Step of Instructions

With the value of Bitcoin having gone from about $4,000 to $15,000 in recent weeks, there’s  been an increased interest in person-to-person payment systems. Demand for simplified payment systems is at an all time high. On 6 December 2017, Apple announced Apple Pay Cash, a peer-to-peer payment system.

This announcement came just hours after news of a major heist in the cryptocurrency world that resulted in numerous people collectively losing over $50M in money. No doubt, consumers will be looking for more secure ways to exchange money with friends and family.

In the video below, that was posted on YouTube for Apple’s 5.6 million subscribers, the simple instructions leave out a very important step. The user must upgrade their device to Apple iOS 11.2 which adds the Apple Pay Cash capability. At present, over 75,000 people have watched the video and were likely perplexed by it since most people will not have performed the upgrade. Some older devices can’t be upgraded to iOS 11.2 so Apple Pay Cash won’t ever work on those devices.

To enjoy Apple Pay Cash, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > General > Software Update
  2. Click Download and Install
  3. Enter your passcode
  4. Agree to the Terms and Conditions
  5. The update will download.
  6. Then the update will install.
  7. You’ll get a message “Verifying Update” and your device will restart.
  8. You’ll see the Apple logo with a progress bar.
  9. Once your device has restarted, then you should be able to follow the instructions provided in the video below.
  10. Whoever you send money to will also need to perform the above steps to get the money you send them.

The Missing Announcement

An announcement on Apple’s website provides the missing information, but it should have been included at the introduction to the video or at the end.

20171207th0944-apple-pay-cash-ios-11_2

Conclusion

After some initial confusion and possibly frustration, hopefully users will figure out what they need to do to make Apple Pay Cash work.

The release of a major product feature, with incomplete information is disconcerting, particularly just weeks after a major security vulnerability and oversight in Apple’s macOS High Sierra that required an emergency update to 10.13.1. That bug allowed anybody to gain full administrative super-user control over any Apple computer from the login screen. Another less significant oversight recently was the inability to easily enter numbers into their program called Numbers.

Let’s hope that Apple does a better job going forward in fully testing everything they are pushing out to the public.

How to Cancel iPhone App Subscriptions

Some of the programs we use on our desktop or laptop computers have subscription services associated with them. An example is Evernote Premium.

Perhaps you signed up for premium service on your iPhone, and subsequently began using the product on your laptop or desktop computer. Now, almost a year later, you’re cutting back on some of the many unnecessary monthly and annual fees that can really add up to a lot. So, you’re wondering how to cancel a subscription.

You can follow these steps to review and cancel subscription services being paid through Apple iTunes. It’s a great way to discover hidden ongoing payments you may have long forgotten about. These instructions assume you have the latest iOS software update on your device and you’ve signed into your iCloud account on your iPhone or iPad.

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings.
  2. At the top, tap on your name to access Apple ID, iCloud, iTunes & App Store.
  3. Tap on iTunes & App Store.
  4. Tap on your Apple ID displayed at the top of the screen.
  5. Choose View Apple ID from the pop-up list.
  6. Tap on Subscriptions (you may need to scroll down).

You will have now discovered a treasure trove of monthly and annual subscriptions you’ve been paying perhaps without knowing. Tap on any subscription for more information or to cancel.

Be careful to only cancel subscriptions you’re sure you don’t need. You don’t want to inadvertently cancel something and then later realize that you were using some feature or enhancement provided by the subscription.

Version 6.13

6.13 and app updates going forwards will be supported on OS X El Capitan (10.11) and above.

Improved:

  • Sharing: consolidated share options under the “Share” button in Evernote. Share a note, choose to create a public link or modify share permissions all from one place.
  • Navigation and Commanding UI: we’ve made some adjustments to provide more space for your content using a narrower toolbar, and making some tweaks to the sidebar to improve legibility. We’ve also improved the Move Note dialog to make it even faster to move a note across accounts by listing all notebooks from both your business and personal accounts directly in the dialog.

  • Zoom is here! Now you can use “⌘+” and “⌘-” or pinch gestures on the trackpad to zoom in and out of a note. Two of our developers responded to the call of this long-standing user request and knocked it out in our first ever Hack Week. Enjoy!
  • You can now easily duplicate a note from the “Note” menu.

  • We redesigned the audio recorder for easy, intuitive recording and playback (OS X 10.10+).

Fixed:

  • For a long time the left side nav used to just highlight the “Notes” tab regardless of what you had selected. We know. Now it highlights your current selection.

  • Code Block – This feature basically takes any selected text and converts it to a monospaced font and creates a gray background around the line of text. This also has a few bugs. It’s not recommended to turn this feature on if you’re an Android user because editing the note on Android will undo the code block. This works fine if you’re using the Common Editor beta version of Android, but will break using the standard Android app. To try it out, go to Preferences -> Software Update -> Enable code block.

  • When you restart Evernote, there was an issue that it sometimes didn’t remember the last note you were on. Now it does.
  • Improved overall stability.

Version 6.3

New:

  • Some people were unwittingly deleting notes by hitting ⌫. Totally our fault for not putting a safety on the deleter. So we changed the key command to ⌘⌫, which is much harder to do on accident (and is equivalent to Finder’s shortcut key).
  • We also added a preference to disable auto-formatting of bulleted lists and emojis, for those who want a little more control.

Fixed:

  • Fixed an issue where font information was lost when copying from Evernote.
  • Fixed an issue where URLs for web-clipped notes wouldn’t appear.

Bug in iOS 11.1.2 – Task Switching and Handoff

Summary

There’s a great feature in iOS on iPhone and iPad devices that allows you to easily switch between running programs. Press the home key twice in sequence and you’ll see the programs that are open and running on the current device. Also, you’ll see the program most recently accessed on your other iCloud connected devices. Whatever program you most recently used, on whatever device that was, will also show up (assuming it’s still open). This is called the handoff feature.

Operating Issues and Problems

This functionality works differently on the iPhone and iPad. On the iPhone, you’ll see the program icon, the program name and what device you’re about to take over the session from. If you have more than one device, you won’t be shown tasks on the other devices — only the one most recently used. It would be nice to have the ability to choose between tasks on different devices.

With the iPad implementation,  you’ll only see an application icon in the dock. There’s no application name or device name provided. There’s an icon meant to distinguish ‘desktop computer’ or ‘iPhone’ but these may not be obvious for people to identify. In macOS, in the dock you’ll see the application icon, and when you hover your mouse over it, there’s a description explaining what the application is and what device it’s on.

The biggest problem is with regard to the iPhone — if you’re one of these people who closes out all  your apps when not in use. Pressing the home key twice will do nothing if you have no programs running. You don’t have the option to pickup a handoff task from another device. The workaround for this is to open an app, even if you don’t need it, then press the home key twice, then you’ll see your currently running app and an option at the bottom of the screen to choose a handoff task from another device.

Fix Requests

Here is a brief summary of the fix requests for the problems described above.

  1. Provide a text label on the iPad for the handoff option.
  2. Make it possible to choose which device to pickup a session from, rather than only the most recent. This would be helpful for someone regularly going between iPad, iPhone, and desktop or laptop device.
  3. On the iPhone, make it possible to press the home key twice, when nothing else is open, and see a handoff option from another device.

AT&T Offers Security Advice Regarding Equifax Data Breach

[Source: The following announcement from AT&T was sent to customers via email on 28 Sep 2017. Links to agencies and sites were created and confirmed when reposting here.]

On September 7, 2017, Equifax announced that it suffered a data breach. There was no breach of AT&T systems or the data we maintain, but we have been working with Equifax to learn more about this event and understand there is a possibility that your personal information might have been exposed.

We encourage you to take the following steps to help protect your identity:

  1. Visit EquifaxSecurity2017.com/consumer-notice to determine if you are potentially affected and to sign up for credit file monitoring and identity theft protection.
  2. Contact major credit reporting agencies to place a fraud alert and/or credit freeze on your credit report, and to learn about identity theft programs offered by the Federal Trade Commission. Details on how to contact the credit reporting agencies and FTC can also be found at Consumer.ftc.gov

If you believe you were the victim of identity theft, here are some steps you can consider for additional protection:

  1. Close the accounts that you believe may have been tampered with or opened fraudulently. Use the Identity Theft Report, which can be found at Identitytheft.gov
  2. File a police report and get a copy to submit to your creditors and others who may require proof of the crime.
  3. File your complaint with the FTC (the Federal Trade Commission). The FTC maintains an identity theft database that law enforcement agencies use for investigations. Filing a complaint also helps the FTC better assist you, as the commission learns more about identity theft and the problems it creates.

Your privacy and data security are paramount to us. If you have any questions about this issue we strongly encourage you to visit EquifaxSecurity2017.com/consumer-notice

Siri – Apple macOS User Identification Issues

If you use Siri on an Apple computer, and share an iCloud account with someone, including contacts, it’s possible that Siri will incorrectly identify who you are based on what is set for “My Card” in contacts.

To clarify, we’re talking about having an additional shared iCloud account in System Preferences > Internet Accounts. Not, System Preferences > iCloud.

So, let’s say you share a list of contacts through iCloud with someone in this way. Even if you subsequently disable the shared contacts, Siri may still remember your name based on that original “My Card” information.

To repair this, make sure the Contacts are activated under Internet Accounts. Then select another contact as “My Card” in the shared Contacts. Test Siri by saying “Hey Siri, What’s my name?” Siri should tell you the name you selected as the My Card contact. Then change the My Card to a contact in your own personal iCloud contacts. This should fix the problem.

iOS 11 iPhone Battery Drain from Weather App Location

The Problem

After upgrading to iOS 11 on the iPhone, you may notice the location information is being shared perpetually. This is evident because of a compass needle icon in the upper right corner of your screen as shown in the image above.

How to Fix It

This could be due to the Weather App having access to your weather even when it’s not visibly in use. If you have the Weather widget in your Notifications screen, the app could perpetually be checking your information. Instead, manually add your current location — and any future locations when you travel.

You should also check for other apps that may be continually using your location. Some apps, such as those that track your auto mileage, need to be tracking your location all the time to automatically know when you’re driving. So, reconsider whether or not there’s a better alternative such as MotionX-GPS track recording on demand.

Location Services

Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and review the list of programs. It’s best to have apps configured to use location services only when the app is in use, or never.

A few examples are below. At the bottom of the the applications list you’ll find a key explaining what the location services icons mean.
