iOS 15.4 Beta Adds Support for Setting Up Custom Email Domains With iCloud Mail

The iOS 15.4 beta that was introduced today expands support for the custom email domain feature available for iCloud +, adding an option to set up a custom domain with iCloud Mail directly on the iPhone . If you go to Settings > Apple ID > iCloud, iCloud Mail is now a tappable option and it includes a section for setting up a Custom Email Domain. Prior to now, custom domains were able to be set up with iCloud Mail, but Apple's iCloud.com website was required to get it working and there was no option to set it up right on the iPhone or iPad . Setting up a custom email domain requires a paid iCloud+ storage plan, which is priced starting at $0.99. The feature is designed to allow a custom email address like johnny@appleseed.com to be used for sending and receiving emails using iCloud Mail. Though the custom domain feature uses iCloud Mail, emails will be addressed to and sent from the custom domain. Each iCloud user can add up to five custom domains to iCloud Mail, and members of a Family Sharing group can also use those domains. Email addresses that are currently used with the custom domain are supposed, and there's also an option to set up new email addresses with the domain. Custom Email Domain settings on the iPhone and iPad will make it much easier to use custom email addresses. It's worth noting that this same feature is also available on the Mac under the System Preferences > Apple ID > iCloud Mail, but it does not yet appear to be functional.

iOS 15.4 Will Allow Third-Party Apps to Take Full Advantage of iPhone 13 Pro 120Hz ProMotion Displays

After the launch of the iPhone 13 Pro models with 120Hz ProMotion, it became clear that most third-party app animations were limited to 60Hz and were unable to take advantage of the 120Hz maximum refresh rate of the new devices. At the time, Apple said there was a Core Animation bug that would be fixed in a later update. Apple appears to be addressing the Core Animation issue in the iOS 15.4 beta, introducing a change that will see apps automatically offering 120Hz refresh rates for all animations on iPhones that offer ProMotion support for more streamlined usage experience. Apollo developer Christian Selig today said on Twitter that someone at Apple informed him that a fix has been implemented in iOS 15.4, and he was able to confirm the change himself. Yay, got a little message from someone at Apple today that this is fixed in the iOS 15.4 betas and all apps automatically get 120 Hz animations on supported iPhones going forward, and just confirmed myself. (See attached, 1/120 = 8.33 ms) https://t.co/EtZ9zkrM6S pic.twitter.com/04cl8uLb11 Christian Selig (@ChristianSelig) January 27, 2022 With the full 120Hz ProMotion support, there should be no discernible difference between the various animations in an app, and everything should operate as expected. 120Hz refresh rates are designed to provide for a smoother viewing experience for scrolling through content, gaming, and more.

Hands-On With Universal Control in iPadOS 15.4 and macOS Monterey 12.3

Apple today released new developer betas of iPadOS 15.4 and macOS Monterey 12.3 , and the updated software adds the long awaited and highly anticipated Universal Control feature . We tested out Universal Control, and even in an early beta form, Universal Control is an easy to use and convenient multi-device control option. Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos. To use Universal Control, the iPadOS 15.4 beta and the macOS Monterey 12.3 beta must be installed on your iPad and Mac, respectively. When you update, the feature is enabled by default and should work automatically, but we did run into an issue where we needed to restart the Mac to get it to work. Settings for Universal Control on the Mac can be found under Displays > Advanced if you want to turn it off for some reason or change the functionality, and on the iPad, you can find the toggle under General > AirPlay & Handoff. After updating, if you have a Mac and an iPad next to each other, or even multiple Macs and iPads, you can use the keyboard and cursor on one device across all of them. So, for example, if you have a MacBook Pro and an iPad Pro on your desk as we do in our video, the MacBook Pro's trackpad can be used over on the iPad just by swiping across, as can the keyboard. The same is true of the iPad if you have a keyboard attached. Universal Control works between multiple Macs and between multiple Macs and iPads. You can drag files from the Mac to the iPad and vice versa, but on iPad, you will need to have the appropriate app open. So if you're dragging a photo from Mac to iPad, you need to open Photos -- it can't go on the Home screen. Trackpad gestures for Mac do not appear to work on the iPad, which is also worth noting. It's an intuitive and simple-to-use feature because you can just swipe right over from one display to the next with no lag or other hindrances. You can use Universal Control on any Mac or iPad that's signed into your iCloud account, and it's a great example of an Apple feature that just works. Have you tried out Universal Control? Let us know what you think in the comments. This article, Hands-On With Universal Control in iPadOS 15.4 and macOS Monterey 12.3 first appeared on MacRumors.com Discuss this article in our forums

Code for the feature was discovered in the iOS 15.4 beta by MacRumors contributor Steve Moser, and it was also highlighted by 9to5Mac .

There are no outward-facing signs of this feature available at the current time, but since it's linked to trade-ins, it might be something that we'll see when the iOS 15.4 update is released to the public.

Supplies of Apple Products to Improve in March Quarter

Apple faced significant supply constraints across all devices during the first fiscal quarter of 2022, but product supplies are expected to improve in the March quarter, Apple CEO Tim Cook told The Wall Street Journal ahead of today's earnings call. We saw supply constraints across most of our products, Mr. Cook said in an interview Thursday as the company released its results. We're forecasting that we will be less [constrained] in March than we were in the December quarter. Cook said that Apple expects to see year-over-year revenue growth in the March quarter, but he stopped short of providing details about when he thinks the supply chain issues facing the tech industry will ease. We're not projecting that, Mr. Cook said. You need to know a lot of things to be able to make an accurate forecast there, like how are other people's demands in addition to what kind of supply we can squeeze out. Even with the supply issues that Apple faced in the holiday quarter, the company today announced record revenue earnings of $123.9 billion. The iPhone and Mac set all-time quarterly revenue records as did wearables (Apple Watch and AirPods) and Services.

Apple shrugs off supply chain woes with record $124B quarter

Apparently, the supply chain issues that affected production during the last holiday season were much ado about nothing. Apple on Thursday reported a staggering $123.9 billion in revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2022, with substantial year-over-year growth in nearly every category, including a record $71.6 billion in iPhone sales alone. All product categories except the iPad were up year over year, with the Mac, Services, and Wearables all posting record numbers. Heres how the quarter breaks down, with the year-over-year growth in parenthesis: iPhone: $71.6 billion (9 percent) Mac: $10.9 billion (25 percent) Wearables: $14.7 billion (13 percent) Services: $19.6 billion (24 percent) The iPad, on the other hand, was down about 14 percent to $7.3 billion. Apple began selling the iPad mini and ninth-generation iPad right before the quarter began, but they were nearly impossible to find during the holiday season due to supply chain issues. Apple had previously stated that iPad supply would be affected. All eyes have been on Apples earnings as tech stocks slump to start the year and Apple blew away expectations. Analysts were expecting an EPS (earnings per share) of $1.88 and revenue of $118.7 billion, and Apple easily beat both numbers with an EPS of $2.10 and revenue of $123.9 billion. In the earnings call following the results, Tim Cook noted that the cost of the supply chain constraints was larger than the previous quarter, which cost the company $6 billion. In the announcement, Apple highlighted an all-time high for its installed base of active devices. Like previous quarters during the pandemic, Apple declined to provide guidance for the next quarter. However, Luca Maestria noted that it expects the next quarters growth to decelerate due to timing of the iPhone launch.

Democratic lawmakers press crypto mining companies over energy consumption concerns

A group of Democratic lawmakers led by Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachuttes has asked six crypto mining companies, including Riot Blockchain, to answer questions about the impact of their operations on the environment and cost of electricity in the US. In separate letters to the chief executives of each firm, the group asks the companies to detail how much electricity they consume, their scaling plans and any agreements they have in place with local utility companies. They have until February 10th to reply. Lawmakers say theyre concerned about what a dramatic increase in domestic cryptocurrency mining has meant for the environment and consumers. Specifically, they cite a 2021 study from the University of California, Berkeley that estimated crypto mining in upstate New York raised annual electricity bills by approximately $165 million for small businesses and $79 million for consumers, with little or no local economic benefit. They also point to the fact that energy consumption related to Bitcoin mining tripled between 2019 and 2021. The extraordinarily high energy usage and carbon emissions associated with Bitcoin mining could undermine our hard work to tackle the climate crisis not to mention the harmful impacts crypto mining has on local environments and electricity prices, Senator Warren said. We need more information on the operations of these crypto mining companies to understand the full scope of the consequences for our environment and local communities. The group stops short of suggesting regulatory action could be on the horizon for the industry, but clearly the effect of cryptocurrency on other parts of the economy is something lawmakers are thinking about. On January 20th, the House Energy and Commerce Committee held a hearing titled Cleaning up Cryptocurrency: The Energy Impacts of Blockchains . Whats more, US lawmakers have taken a more board interest in cryptocurrencies in recent months. That was on display in December when the Senate held a hearing on Stablecoins .

The first iOS and iPadOS 15.4 betas arrive with Universal Control, new emojis

As expected, Apple has followed the release of iOS 15.3 with the beta-testing releases for iOS 15.4 (and associated operating systems like iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS). Were still waiting on a couple of significant iOS 15 features that are supposed to be released this spring, and this beta finally brings the first look at Universal Control (together with the macOS 12.3 beta ). Its hoped that, over the course of the beta testing releases, these features will show up in iOS 15.4, but Apple may still delay them further. iOS 15.4: New features Universal Control The iPadOS 15.4 beta finally brings Universal Control, which was supposed to release last fall but was delayed until spring 2022. The feature, which lets you drag and drop files between the iPad and Mac (or different Macs) as well as share keyboard and mouse wirelessly between them, can be found in the AirPlay& Handoff tab in the General Settings. There, youll see a new Cursor and Keyboard (Beta) option. Face ID with Mask Better late than never, right? While iOS 14.5 let you unlock your iPhone with your Apple Watch when Face ID doesnt work, thats not a lot of use for those who dont have a watch but are trying to reduce the spread of a deadly pandemic by wearing a mask in public spaces. Inside the Face ID & Passcode settings youll find a new toggle to Use Face ID with a Mask . When turned on, Face ID will use the unique features around the eye area to authenticate rather than full facial recognition. Theres also a new Add Glasses setting so the system can properly identify your facial features. Apple warns that Face ID is more accurate with the settings turned off. Emojis There are several dozen new emoji as part of the Unicode Consortiums Emoji 14 release . They include melting face, saluting face, biting lip, jar, beans, x-ray, bubbles, and more. DualSense adaptive triggers This release enables developers to support the adaptive triggers function of the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller. iCloud Keychain notes You can add notes to a password entry in Keychain. Head to Settings > Passwords to see your Keychain entries. Apple Card Widget Theres a new Apple Card widget that can be added to your home screen or Today view. It shows your current balance and spending activity. Vaccination records in the EU The Health app now supports the EU Digital COVID Certificate format, so you can add your vaccine record to the Health and Wallet apps in supported regions. iOS 15.4: How to get it If youre interested in beta-testing iOS 15.4 (or iPadOS 15.4), you should do so on a device that is not your primary everyday iPhone or iPad. Registered developers can go to developer.apple.com/download using the device upon which they wish to run the beta. From there, you can download a developer beta profile. Head to Settings > General > VPN & Device Management to enable the beta profile. Then your iPhone or iPad will restart, and you can go to Settings > General > Software Update to download the latest version. To participate in the public beta test (which usually gets beta builds between a few hours and a day after the developers do), head to beta.apple.com using the device upon which you wish to run the beta. From there, you can download a developer beta profile. Head to Settings > General > VPN & Device Management to enable the beta profile. Then your iPhone or iPad will restart, and you can go to Settings > General > Software Update to download the latest version.

Everything New in iOS 15.4 and iPadOS 15.4: Face ID With a Mask, Emojis, Apple Card Widget, Universal Control and More

Apple today seeded the first betas of iOS 15.4, iPadOS 15.4 to developers for testing purposes, adding a slew of new features to the latest iOS operating systems. iOS 15.4 is the biggest update that we've had to iOS 15 to date, and it brings Universal Control, Face ID with a mask, new emojis, and tons more. Face ID With a Mask With iOS 15.4, there is now an option to unlock your iPhone while wearing a mask . Apple warns that full face ID is the more secure option, but mask Face ID is now available. Face ID with a mask can be enabled after updating to iOS 15.4, and it is designed to use the area around your eyes for authentication purposes. It works with glasses, but it is not compatible with sunglasses, and you must be looking at the iPhone to unlock it with a mask on. Face ID with a mask looks to be limited to the iPhone 12 and newer. Universal Control iPadOS 15.4 and macOS Monterey 12.3 enable the long-awaited Universal Control feature , which is designed to allow you use a single cursor and keyboard to control the iPads and Macs that are signed into your iCloud account. Universal Control is super easy to use and enabled by default once you upgrade to iPadOS 15.4 and macOS Monterey 12.3. If you have a MacBook and an iPad , for example, the MacBook's trackpad and keyboard can also be used right on the iPad's display. There are new settings for Universal Control on the iPad and the Mac, and on the iPad, the option to toggle it on or off is listed under Handoff & Airplay. Emojis Spring iOS updates often bring new emoji characters, and iOS 15.4 is no exception. The beta introduces support for Emoji 14, adding 37 emoji and 75 skin tone additions for a total of 112 new characters. New faces include melting face, saluting face, face with open eyes and hand over mouth, face with peeking eye, face with diagonal mouth, and dotted line face, while new emojis include biting lip and bubbles. There are several new hand emojis, such as heart hands, rightwards hand, leftwards hand, palm down hand, palm up hand, hand with index finger and thumb crossed, index pointing at the viewer, along with an update to the handshake emoji. Nest with eggs, empty nest, x-ray, crutch, playground slide, wheel, ring buoy, hamsa, mirror ball, jar, identification card, and low battery are new items, while plants and animals will include coral and lotus. As for fantasy characters, we can expect a new troll emoji, and eggs, beans, and pouring liquid make up new food items. Apple Card Widget There is a new Apple Card widget in the Today view, which can be added to the Home screen. The Apple Card widget shows your current balance and your daily spending in different categories. Keyboard Brightness In iPadOS 15.4, there's a new Keyboard Brightness option that can be added to the Control Center to allow you to adjust the brightness of a connected keyboard with backlighting. It works for Apple's Magic Keyboard, but it does need to be added to Control Center by going to Settings > Control Center and tapping the + button next to Keyboard Brightness. iCloud Keychain Notes iCloud Keychain users can now add notes to any password entry, bringing iCloud Keychain more in line with other password storing options like 1Password. On iPhone and iPad, iCloud Keychain can be accessed in the Settings app under Passwords. Passkey Website Sign-in Apple says that the iOS 15.4 and iPadOS 15.4 betas add a new passkey feature that allows users to sign into passkey-compatible websites and apps on Mac and iPad using an iPhone with a saved passkey. That means that on websites that allow for authentication via Face ID or Touch ID , you can authenticate with an iPhone instead of having to enter a password. Game Controllers According to Apple's release notes, support is available for new DualSense adaptive trigger firmware features. Vaccination Records in the Health App Verifiable health records now support adding vaccination records in the EU Digital COVID Certificate format to the Health and Wallet apps, so those in the EU can add their vaccine cards to the Wallet app for easy access.
