how to receive notifications on the iPhone if our region is affected

Snow, frost and very cold. This is the panorama we have right now in Spain. A panorama that requires us to be attentive to how weather conditions evolve to be able to be prepared and avoid unforeseen events. Fortunately, our iPhones can take care of just that.

There are many ways to keep an eye on the situation. From the iPhone there are different applications, including the Weather app, which notify us of adverse conditions. Let’s see, but, a way to customize these notices to suit our schedules and needs. And all thanks to the Shortcuts app.

A fully customizable notice thanks to the Shortcuts app

When it comes to customization and versatility on the iPhone, the Shortcuts app needs to be part of the conversation. It is thanks to Shortcuts that we can schedule a check of the temperature conditions in the region we are in or decide to and issue a personalized notice depending on what the minimums will be. The steps are somewhat long to explain, but if we follow them with the iPhone in front of us, even if we are creating our first shortcut, they are more than logical and simple. Let’s go with them:

  1. We open the app shortcuts on our iPhone or iPad.
  2. We touch the “+” to create a new one.
  3. In Shortcut Name we write something like “Temperature Advisories”.
  4. In the search engine on the right we write “Time” and touch Get the weather forecast.
  5. We keep the option of Daily and also that of Current locationunless we want to define that of another city.
  6. In the search engine on the right side we write “Time” again and touch Get weather details.
  7. we play in Date and we choose minimum.
  8. In the search engine on the right we write “Yes” and touch Yes.
  9. we play in Condition and we choose is less than or equal to.
  10. we play in Number and we write the temperature from which we want to be notified.
  11. In the search engine on the right side we write “Notification” and touch show notification.
  12. We touch the small “x” to the right of But.
  13. we drag show notification so that it remains between Yes and the end if.
  14. We touch the small arrow next to show notification.
  15. In Title we write something like “Low temperature warning”.
  16. In the search engine on the right we write “Text” and touch Text.
  17. Drag the text action on the left to just above show notification.
  18. In the text section we write something like “Today we will reach the”, a space, click on the variable suggestion minimum from the bottom and then end the sentence with another space and “degrees”.
  19. We touch on “Hello, world”, we delete the notice and click on the variable suggestion Text from the bottom.
  20. In Attached file we eliminate any variable.

Ok, we’ve already created the shortcut. Visually, you have to remain just like the one we see above these lines. If we wish, we can download the shortcut already made in this link. From here we can program the automation, we will do it like this:

  1. We open the app shortcuts on our iPhone or iPad.
  2. We enter the tab Automation.
  3. we play in Create personal automationif we do not see it, click on the “+” first.
  4. we choose time of day.
  5. We write the time in which we want to receive the notice.
  6. we press Next.
  7. we play in add actionwe write “execute” and click on run shortcut.
  8. we play in Shortcut right next to “Run” and choose the shortcut we just created.
  9. we press Next.
  10. We deactivate request confirmation.
  11. Click on do not request.
  12. we play okay.

Where is the recycle bin on the iPhone

Nothing more. As we have already said, the steps are many, but very simple. In the end, we will achieve that, from a certain temperature threshold, our iPhone promptly notifies us of this. A threshold that we can customize both in value and in the location in which it is measured to take the actions we consider appropriate.

Apple explains why only USB-C AirPods Pro support lossless audio with Vision Pro

Apple is today marketing a revision of the AirPods Pro which has the particularity of having a USB-C port on the charging case. But that’s not the only change: the headphones also support lossless audio with the Apple Vision Pro headset.

Why can’t the second generation AirPods Pro with the Lightning Charging Case also support lossless audio with the Vision Pro? Brian Tong did an interview with two Apple executives to get the answer. Ron Huang, Apple’s vice president of sensors and connectivity, gives the answer.

Ron Huang says the H2 chip in AirPods Pro with the USB-C port supports the 5GHz wireless frequency band for ultra-low latency and less interference, while the H2 chip in AirPods Pro with the Lightning port is limited to the 2.4 GHz band. Apple says it’s this support for the 5GHz band that allows the updated AirPods Pro to support lossless audio with the Vision Pro.

The Apple Vision Pro headset will be available in early 2024, first in the United States. The price will be $3,499. Apple has already planned marketing in other countries, but this will happen later at a price that is currently unknown in euros.

And of course, US production obliges, a documentary on famous women could not miss the mark of “empowerment”: “As the fashion industry continues to redefine itself, this is the ultimate story of power and how four women came together to reclaim it, paving the way for those who would follow.” » An entire program…

It would (already) be a hit for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, and a small disappointment for the iPhone 15 Pro

After just a few days of pre-orders, the lively Ming Chi Kuo can already give the main trends in iPhone sales for the current and coming quarter. For the analyst, there are no doubts: the new iPhone 15/15 Pro range is a huge success, and Apple should distribute 80 million copies until the end of the year compared to 76 million for the iPhone 14/14 Pro range. Surprisingly, the 15 Pro Max model is popular with buyers, and Kuo estimates that Apple will sell 35 million of this model (Q3 and Q4), or 7 million more 15 Pro Max compared to sales of the 14 Pro. Max over the same period.

On the other hand, sales would be a little below expectations for the two most “standard” models, namely the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro. Kuo does not give figures, but specifies that without a drop in prices (via occasional promotions for example), the volume of these sales should not change much in a few months. The surprise is undoubtedly on the side of the iPhone 15 Plus, which would sell beyond the stock capacities initially planned by Apple. The factories will have to operate more vigorously…
