How to Change Default Apps in iOS 14

how-to-use-iphone-as-remote-featured.jpg Apple’s iOS platform has never really been “open.” Unlike Android, Apple has long controlled what apps can be used as the default apps.

Waze is testing Apple CarPlay split view support

Apple CarPlay’s multiscreen dashboard is one of the biggest recent improvements to the iPhone’s in-car interface, bringing third-party navigation apps to the home screen, but only if those apps actively support it. Now, one of the most conspicuous absences, Waze, looks to finally be getting onboard. Waze has been available through CarPlay for some time now, giving another alternative to … Continue reading

‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ will air on PBS, in spite of Apple TV+ rights exclusive

charlie-brown-christmas-apple.jpg?w=711

Call it a holiday miracle. Apple today announced that animated holiday classics “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” will, indeed, be appearing on television this year. The news comes after some pushback against an Apple TV+ exclusive that found the Peanuts cartoons being pulled from TV broadcast.

As we noted last month, the deal would mark the first time in 55 years the beloved Christmas special wouldn’t be broadcast on network television. Both holiday specials appeared to be resolved to a similar fate as the 1966 Halloween special, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”

While Apple’s rights had a clause that involved a window for free broadcast, it was hard to shake the feeling that relegating a holiday tradition to a premium subscription service flew in the face of the original special’s staunch, anti-consumer message.

Thankfully, in addition to appearing on TV+, “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” will appear on PBS and PBS on November 22, 2020 at 7:30 pm local time/6:30 pm CT, while “A Charlie Brown Christmas” will air on December 13, 2020 at 7:30 pm local time/6:30 pm CT.

It’s a small victory, perhaps, but these days we’ll take them where we can get them. And this time without ads.

Let’s block ads! (Why?)
