Wel­come…

iPad&iPhone user - - CONTENTS -

This month we’re look­ing for­ward to WWDC. A high­light of Ap­ple’s yearly cal­en­dar, the an­nual get-to­gether for the com­pany’s soft­ware part­ners al­ways sees it un­veil a range of new prod­ucts. This time around we’re ex­pect­ing new ver­sions of its op­er­at­ing sys­tems and up­dates to Siri and Ap­ple Mu­sic. Read our pre­view on page 4.

We’ve also had a chance to spend some time with Ap­ple’s lat­est iOS hard­ware – the 9.7in iPad Pro and the iPhone SE. On pages 8 and 26 we eval­u­ate their build qual­ity and new fea­tures, put the de­vices through our rig­or­ous speed bench­marks and bat­tery-life tests, and look at their value for money.

New to iOS is the Night Shift fea­ture, which lets you ad­just the colour tem­per­a­ture of the dis­play, shift­ing away from blue spec­trums of light, in the pu­ta­tive in­ter­est of im­prov­ing sleep. The jury is, how­ever, out as to its ef­fec­tive­ness. We look at what the ex­perts say on page 43.

Siri made the iPhone more re­spon­sive with ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, but now its founders want to put AI in every de­vice you own. On page 65, we look at Viv, a voice as­sis­tant that could change the way we in­ter­act with not just our phones but our home ap­pli­ances, cars, and more.

Plus, we’ve 29 pages of tips and tu­to­ri­als, so you can get the most out of your Ap­ple hard­ware.

We hope you en­joy the is­sue. Feel free to send us your feed­back via face­book.com/ipadi­phoneuser or email rob_­grant@idg.co.uk.
