If you’re one of the lucky ones who found an iPad under the tree this Christmas, there’s accessories with which you can get much more out of it. These are seven proposals to enjoy the Apple tablet more.

If you plan to use the iPad as a laptop, a keyboard and trackpad case like Logitech’s is one of the best purchases you can make. The brand has versions for the different models of Apple tablets, so that the user can choose the right one without fear of mistakes.

Logitech Keys-To-Go Bluetooth Keyboard

Logitech Keys To Go

Another option is to use a Bluetooth keyboard if we plan to use it more sporadically with the iPad, so as not to have to go with the keyboard and trackpad case, which ends up adding considerable weight (and iPads are not exactly light devices). The Logitech Keys-To-Go (49.99 euros) is a ultralight and thin proposition that stands out for its autonomy of up to three months (with an average daily use of two hours), and its FabricSkin cover protects it from splashes and dirt.

She doesn’t play Hogwarts Legacy, but Siri can cast Harry Potter spells

what better way to Turn on the kitchen lights than exclaiming Lumos Maxima? The movement of the wand with the iPhone in hand is optional, yes, but the effect is, to say the least, striking. Undoubtedly more striking if we are in the company of a Hogwarts Legacy enthusiast or if we are ourselves.

And we are not just talking about the lights in the kitchen, the Harry Potter spells can be used to turn on the flashlight, lower the volume of our iPhone or iPad, activate the Do Not Disturb mode and several other possibilities. all this, made possible by Siri and the Shortcuts app.

Siri Potter and the Philosopher iPhone

The Shortcuts app on our iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch allows us to perform actions—streams of actions, in fact—with the press of a button. In addition, the name that we put to the shortcut in question goes directly to Siri, so, by saying “Hey Siri, shortcut name” the system takes care of everything. It is precisely thanks to this that we can control our device and home with the Harry Potter spells.

As a reminder, comment that creating a new Shortcut on our iPhone is as easy as opening the app, touching the “+” at the top right, find the actions at the bottom and then touch them to add them, in order, to the shortcut itself. Then, at the top, we touch the name of the shortcut to choose rename and choose both how to identify it and how to activate it. A simple okay ends the task.

From here we only have to see what spells we would like to use and how to give them a real utility in our devices. There are many ideas, and each of us will consider different possibilities, but let’s review some of the possibilitiesavoiding the unforgivable curses:

  • Lumos Maxima: with a shortcut that uses the action adjust flashlight a Activate and the brightness to the maximum.
  • Nox: with the action of adjust flashlight a Deactivate
  • sound: using the action adjust volume to 100%.
  • quietus: using the action adjust volume at 50%
  • Silence: with action Define concentration mode in Activate and choosing Do not disturb.
  • action [Nombre de una app]: with action open app and choosing the one that interests us.
  • Alohomora: with the action of control homechoosing our smart lock and requesting it to open.
  • Muffliato: using the action adjust volume at 0%.
  • Sternius: can work with a Shortcut containing Select File and then play sound having selected one of a sneeze.

If we add to these ideas the control of devices in our home and the sensors of the HomePod, the possibilities are even greater. Tools? Well to some extent yes. And being good fans of Harry Potter, surely very easy to remember to carry out some actions quickly and leave more than one surprised.

Apple Maps: a flaw would have allowed applications to access the location of users without their knowledge

Apple Plans Nouvelles Cartes France Look Around

Users with an iPhone or iPad can allow or deny access to their location, allowing or denying applications to have this data. A flaw (corrected with iOS 16.3) seems to have allowed any application to obtain the information, without the user’s consent.

iOS 16.3 corrects a flaw which has the identifier CVE-2023-23503, but whose technical details have not yet been revealed. Apple only advises that it relates to Maps, that an app may be able to bypass privacy preferences, and that a logic issue has been resolved with better state management.

It appears that the flaw in question allowed location tracking regardless of user preferences and, according to blogger Rodrigo Ghedin, at least one company has exploited the vulnerability. This is iFood, a Brazilian meal delivery company. A user, who had an iPhone under iOS 16.2, noticed that the iFood application was able to know his location, although he had not given his consent at the iOS level. This is no longer the case since he installed iOS 16.3.

A few questions can be asked: how long has this vulnerability existed? What other applications have used it? How much location data has been collected through it?

iFood did not comment, as did Apple. But it is unlikely that the iPhone manufacturer will discuss the subject because the technical details of the security flaw have not yet been disclosed. The band certainly expects most users to have iOS 16.3 installed.

A green comet is visiting us. So you can locate it in the sky with your iPhone

Avatar of Thomas Grimm

You may have heard of the so-called ‘green comet’ that is passing close to Earth these days. Its scientific name is C/2022 E3 (ZTF), and it will be so striking that we can see it with the *text muted* eye in the night sky. The last time it “grazed” our planet was 50,000 years ago, when Neanderthals were the predominant human species. It has rained ever since.

If you want to take advantage of this unique opportunity to see a comet in greenish tones in our sky, you have to be clear about two things: the first is that you will have to get up early, because the best time to see it is before dawn. The second is that you will have to locate the quadrant in which it will appear, but that It is something that we can easily do with the iPhone.

Download, Accept and Aim

The trick is to download the Comet C/2022 E3 ZTF app, available for free on the App Store. Once you have it, you just have to press the first button that appears:


The application will ask you for permission to know your location (essential for it to work properly) and it will show you a map of the firmament with all the constellations adapted to your position. Point the iPhone towards the sky and turn until you find the red comet symbol:

search green kite iphone

Visibility is better from the northern hemisphere, it seems, although that doesn’t mean that it won’t be possible to locate it from the southern hemisphere.

The Galileo GPS is already the most accurate in the world: how to know if our iPhone is compatible

From here, being able to see it depends more on you and the weather conditions at the time. The maximum point of visibility is tonight and the following (February 2), so set a reminder on your devices if you don’t want to miss it. I don’t think we’ll be around when you next visit us in another 50,000 years.
