The comparisons are hateful. Especially if one of your top competitors has an entire fleet of satellites and takes years of advantage ... By all is known that Apple Maps is one of the native applications of iOS less used by users of iPhone and iPad.
In fact, it was certainly one of the first apps removed from your iPhone and / or iPad when Apple allowed the deletion of native apps on iOS 10 . But recently the company has added a few features that may make you want to reuse this map application .
These are the reasons why you probably stop hating the Apple Maps app on your iPhone and / or iPad.

Event and travel notifications

Apple syncs your native apps so your iPhone and iPad are more helpful. This means that notifications of your calendar events will be detailed with information about the traffic on the road and the duration of the trip.

Spotlight locations

Absolutely all locations of interest are marked with a specific color. This way you can find what you were looking for in a more efficient and fast way. For example, hospitals are red, shopping malls are yellow and parks are green.

3D view

Apple offers options for viewing in two dimensions or in three dimensions. Using the 3D view gives you a general idea of ​​what the place you are going to be going to be. Although it is not a street view like the one offered by Google (maybe the function will soon arrive), it will help you.

Wikipedia Information

When you click on a particular location, the side menu (iPad) or the bottom menu (iPhone) gives you all the information available about the place on Wikipedia.

Make a reservation

In addition, Apple Maps allows reservations in restaurants from the application itself. So you can look for a new restaurant and at the same time make the reservation, it even offers pictures, phone numbers, TripAdvisor reviews and if you allow payments via Apple Pay.

At last you will stop hating Apple Maps

Although in this Samsung 2017 seems to have done the duties in innovation with its S8 and Note8, the reality is that until recently, Apple was the signature that marked trend in terms of design, features and novelties , something that we hope to resume With the iPhone 8.
In fact, you do not have to go very far: a few weeks ago Apple patented a gadget to help people with hearing difficulties in their use of the iPhone. The same is true for software with its "do not disturb the steering wheel" . It is a reality, Apple is synonymous with innovation and cutting edge .
On the other hand, aside from the good work done by the Koreans this year with a terminal that is simply impressive in appearance and screen - although we remember that their "innovative" facial recognition can easily be trolled with a photo of the card - to date Has had no qualms about being inspired by the apple bite company.
You do not have to go far to see it: you copied it on the 3D Touch , with the integration of the dual camera on your devices, also removed the headphone output and of course, by removing the Home button . The truth is that the history of inspiration of Samsung in Apple is endless , suffice to say that his journey in the courts is already eternal.
But Samsung has been unmarked and if you settle for the Koreans in the purchase of your next terminal you could find that it has a breathalyzer. It is not a joke. And is that just patented an alcohol meter inside a device similar to the S-Pen that could measure the amount of alcohol in blood as we speak . By the way, it would also detect our bad breath.
At the moment, it is unknown when Samsung will introduce it in their devices or if on the contrary finally discard it, like so many other inventions that will not see the light in the market. What do you think of the invention? Should Apple note and bet on something similar?

Samsung's invention that will never copy Apple

Here we leave a sample so that you can see how far some of them come:
Eye that is not simple , you will have to gesticulate, dance and make sure that you point well your grimaces towards the frontal camera of your device. The success has been such that even in social networks you can find the hashtag #FaceDanceChallenge, in which players from across Asia beat to see who can make the most ridiculous face of all.

One of the security mechanisms of the iPhone, the Touch ID, could have been breached in the last hours. A hacker claims to have broken the Secure Enclave and has released its encryption keys, although Apple has already confirmed that we do not have to worry because they are already working on fixing this problem.

The Touch ID has been hacked: hard hit for Apple's security

As you know, the Touch ID is the mechanism that allows us to unlock our iPhone mobiles by fingerprint recognition. The news is received precisely now that it is rumored about the location of this unlock sensor on the iPhone 8, and without creating alarm, the truth is that it is not unreasonable to imagine that can be a bump in terms of security for Apple.
The Touch ID is the mechanism in charge of unlocking our terminals with a fingerprint.
The Touch ID is the mechanism in charge of unlocking our terminals with a fingerprint.
For all those who do not know very well how the Touch ID works, there is a brief explanation: this mechanism of fingerprint unlocking works thanks to the Secure Enclave (SEP) processor, which has its own independent operating system To iOS and is in charge of unlocking the mobile device in order to access the software of the same. The interesting thing about Secure Enclave is that it generates a unique code for each device that changes every time we reboot our iPhone in order to maximize security. However, a hacker claims to have circumvented the security system and has published its encryption keys, as we mentioned at the beginning of the article. This is something that according to Apple should not worry users, But when you find out that the security system on your mobile phone has been violated, it's hard not to worry.

Apple, you must take action on the matter

Something that is less curious is that the hacker himself has said that such a leak of the encryption keys of the Touch ID have a purpose: that Apple react and take more seriously the security of their devices. Although in this case a priori the hacker did not want to get personal information from users, it has made it clear that it is possible to 'break' the security systems that the Cupertino incorporate in their iPhone.
Following this leakage of the Touch ID security codes, it is demonstrated that Apple is not immune to the dangers that lurk on the internet.

After the news, a spokesman for the company said the following: "There are many layers of security involved in the SEP, and access to firmware in no way provides access to user data." However, although This is true, it is possible to access the SEP and in this way endanger the security mechanisms such as the Touch ID, so now it is Apple's turn to start working to polish details and cracks that allow things like these to arrive to pass.
