MacOS Big Sur tips and tricks

If you've downloaded the latest version of macOS, there are some new tips and tricks you can try. While some Big Sur features, like the Maps update, are a bit disappointing, other apps like Safari have received helpful updates that make them better platforms. SafariSafari is one of the best updates included in macOS Big Sur. There is a new Privacy Report that helps show users which trackers are following users on the Internet. The new version of Safari also prevents some trackers from following you, which is ideal if you don't like being tracked online. For example, my Privacy Report says that Safari has blocked 221 trackers, and 56 percent of the websites I visit use trackers. If you don't see it, try clicking the Settings icon on the Safari home page at the bottom right of the...

How to regain control of your notifications on iPhone

Notifications are excessive. If you have a modern smartphone, you are likely to be drowning in notifications. If it's an iPhone, this guide can help you turn off unimportant notifications. If you have an Android device, check out our Android notification guide. Notification control on iOS is not as intuitive as on Android, but in general, most apps have some kind of notification control customization. At the iOS system level, users can disable notifications for each app and modify how the notification enters. You can also change the notifications as they come in, but the only options this gives you is the ability to silence that app or turn off its notifications entirely. Remember that every time you download a new application, it asks if you want to allow access to its notifica...

How to view Apple’s ARM Mac keynote ‘One more thing’

Apple is holding another conference this fall with all signs pointing to a selection of ARM-based MacBooks being released. The main note is called 'One More Thing', and it dates back to Steve Jobs' love of surprising the public with a secret product at the end of product launch events. There is much speculation that the event will reveal Apple's first MacBooks with ARM CPUs. Beyond that, we could finally see the AirTags and AirPods Studios on-ear headphones.

Here’s how to set up the iOS 14 Back Tap feature on your iPhone

When iOS 14 was in beta, some enterprising testers discovered a new 'Back Tap' feature that allows users to tap on the back of their iPhone to activate shortcuts or launch apps. Back Tap is quite a useful feature, so we thought we'd go through how to configure it and explain some of its capabilities. First, to activate Back Tap on your iPhone, it will need to be on iOS 14 or later. If you're running iOS 14, head to Settings> Accessibility> Tap> Tap Back (it's the bottom option on the touch menu).From here, you can start configuring and customizing the Back Touch. First, you can select between tapping twice or three times, or use both if you want. This determines how many times you have to touch the back of the phone to trigger an action. Both options give you access to the sam...

How to watch the 2020 US Presidential Election in Canada

The day has finally come: the US presidential election. Soon, we will know if Republican President Donald Trump gets a second term as president or if Democratic challenger Joe Biden will take office. Given the United States' position as a world superpower, and Canada's neighbor in particular, there is no question that there are many people here at home and in other countries outside of the United States who are eager to see what happens. In Canada, there are several ways to tune in to what is perhaps the most important election day in American history. For starters, there will be the usual suspects in terms of the US networks covering the event, in case you have those channels. These include MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox n...
