Hi, Speed – innovation kickback of actual keynote

…what apple annouced innovative right now

homepod mini

smaller and smarter as the big brother, automatically create a pair in the same room and placing an iPhone near give visual/audio/haptical effects with UltraWide Band Chip, later this year – communicate via Intercom with other device in my home or need apple devices *wow*

there are sonos and other smart speaker around but in my opinion aren’t that smart, preorder start november 6th, shipping begins november 16th for just $99

iPhone 12

all new design? looks like a “Back to the Future” iPhone5, but infact with quite competitive harware improvements: 5G speed, A14 Bionic, Ceramic Shield, Edge‑to‑edge OLED display, Night mode on every camera and finall LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) to measure object distance, from size mini to max

  • iPhone 12 mini at $699
  • iPhone 12 s at $799
  • iPhone 12 Pro at $999
  • Phone 12 Pro Max at $1,099

MagSafe

also there are still wireless charging options but not tuned, cutout for the clock in cases with magnetic clips and apple “enable an all new ecosystem” mean even more money

after the more or less disappointing keynote in september “Time Flies” with e.g. the iPadAir this was inspiring in terms of:

Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

TestFlight is apple’s Beta Testing Service to test Pre-Release version with new features, it support up to 10.000 tester invited per mail or via shared link, your able to install newer and even older versions of the invited app, or switch betweeen versions is possible, but builds remain just active for 90 days

the link will refer to the previous installed TestFlight app, select the shared beta app and select any previous build

iOS VPNonDemand gets “inactive”

recently we noticed VPN wasn’t working, could be the disabled connect on demand option – nope – the entire VPN configuration was inactive?!

a bit history: apple introduced VPN on demand (VPoD) still in iOS 5, it’s required setup certificate authentication – at first it was just possible to define single domains, over the years it advanced to ignore, evaluate or disconnect for certain domains – along with iOS 7 apple intoduced Per-app VPN to connect specific apps – since iOS13 it is even possible to tunnel just mail/calandar/contacts domains

noticed that this just happed for VPoD configuration, even if a single domain overlap in OnDemand rule, always the last pushed VPN configuration is active

even though all other obsete profiles are remove, the VPN config stays in it’s current state, even if it’s the last remaining configuration

you either manually enable the desired config or repush the config via MDM to remote enable

switch android phone and (easily) reconnect your wear smartwatch

largely relegated to checking notifications, counting steps, and maybe measuring your heart rate from time to time

in Q3 2019 the wearable band shipments grew 65% and propably below some christmas trees

beginning 2020, one-in-five americans use a smart watch or fitness tracker, according to a Pew Research


apple released in 2019 it’s watch series 5 with built-in compass and Emergency SOS application on cellular models

google smartwatches, running wear os, without an update since rename in 2018 – need oem vender to push the mobile os – xiaomi succeed with low prices to the global leader with 27% share – huawei reached annual growth largest wearable growth of 243% – fitbit recently sold to google


what’s embarrassing with wear os is the switch to a new android device, there is no guide to reconnect, you had to erase the watch and reconfigure – some apps on your mobile device offer the option to install as extention onto the watch, but all other needs to be installed manually one by one

but the is a clever guide to use the developer option to reconnect to a new device, without the need of resetting

simply enable usb debugging, disable blueooth, connect your wearable to android studio/adb tos, execute to following

  • adb devices
  • adb shell “pm clear com.google.android.gms && reboot”
  • adb shell “am start -a android,bluetooth.adapter.action.REQUEST_DISCOVERABLE”
