By Roger Fingas Sunday, January 07, 2018, 07:06 pm PT (10:06 pm ET) A pair of major Apple shareholders have issued an open letter asking the company to study the impact of heavy smartphone use by children and teenagers, as well as offer more parental restrictions on iPhones. The letter, shared online by Jana Partners and the California State Teachers' Retirement System, suggests that there's a "growing body of evidence" that for youth with more intense habits, smartphones "may be having unintentional negative consequences." The groups argue that "growing societal unease" could eventually affect Apple, and that stemming the problem now will aid the company's shares. In terms of restrictions, the letter proposes modifying initial setup on an iPhone to let parents set an age and appropriate limits on screen time, hours of the day, and which social media services a child can access. Likewise, parents could be given options to monitor how an iPhone is used. Other suggetions include … [Read more...] about Shareholders ask Apple to study impact of iPhone addiction on young users

Kids and smartphones has always been a sensitive topic, but now a two Apple investors are calling on the tech giant to actually do something about it. SEE ALSO: The iPhone is once again the best-selling tech product of the year According to a story from the Wall Street Journal, Jana Partners LLC and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System sent a letter to Apple asking the iPhone maker to "develop new software tools that would help parents control and limit phone use more easily and to study the impact of overuse on mental health." The two groups control about $2 billion in Apple stock, which is a small chunk given the company's market value is over $900 billion. The iPhone already features certain parental controls, which help parents limit or block kids from using certain apps. But the pair of investors want the company to do more to limit usage and better understand the mental health effects of using smartphones, and they've enlisted Dr. Jean M. Twenge … [Read more...] about Two Apple investors want the company to study limiting children’s iPhone use
Here's one way to curb phone addiction. A Japanese company has created an iPhone case to help parents stop their kids from becoming too addicted to their phones. SEE ALSO: iPhone App Shrinks Your Data & Your Monthly Bill The case, called the Otomos, is fixed to the phone and cannot be removed without a special screw. Otomos pairs up with an app that allows parents to limit the child's daily phone usage. If the child exceeds their daily limit, the phone will automatically enter sleep mode. Motion detectors built into the case are also able to deactivate the phone automatically while the child is walking. Otomos, which was created by Momo Ltd, can also send automatic messages to parents' phones if it senses that a significant physical shock, such as an accident, has taken place. “We have developed the product after hearing many views and concerns of parents who have children using smartphones,” Masato Otsu, president of Momo Ltd, told Kyodo news … [Read more...] about This brilliant case will end your kid’s iPhone addiction
Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives. I'd become like Don Quixote. I'd walk into carrier stores, tilt at the windmills of the staff's expertise and ask whether the iPhone X was the best phone I could buy. In visits to all the major carriers -- and Best Buy -- I couldn't even find a salesperson to tell me it was the best iPhone I could buy. What to do? Go to an Apple store for reassurance, I was told by Apple salespeople. Surely, I'd get my deliverance, with passionate Applepersons in red shirts gushing over the future of the smartphone. Or is it the smartphone of the future? Or is it, I worried, just another phone? Sadly, my quest wasn't a simple one. 'Well, it depends' My first visit to a Bay Area Apple store was just before Christmas. I was there to buy a gift, but soon I ended up chatting about phones with the salesman. He showed me his X and said he liked it a lot. But is it the best phone? "Well, it depends on what you … [Read more...] about Is iPhone X the best? My search to find Apple store staff who think so
Llevo mucho tiempo pidiéndole a la gente de Speck que haga una cubierta para el teléfono que funcione con un soporte magnético para el auto y por fin lo han hecho. La Presidio Mount, que tiene el aspecto de una funda Presidio estándar, incorpora dos placas de acero "estratégicamente posicionadas e incrustadas entre la funda y sus dos capas de protección". Hecha en colaboración con Scosche, la funda está diseñada para funcionar con la familia MagicMount de Scosche de soportes magnéticos, además de otros soportes magnéticos. Se vende a partir de US$45 y estará disponible en febrero. Muchos de estos soportes magnéticos para el coche vienen con una placa de acero que pones detrás de la funda de tu teléfono en su parte trasera. Pero no es ideal porque depende del grosor de la funda y tu teléfono podría no adherirse al imán tan bien como debería. "Al estar incrustadas, las placas de … [Read more...] about Esta es la nueva cubierta Speck para el iPhone con la que quieres conducir
¿Cómo te va con tu nuevo iPhone X? Si eres como yo, te encanta la pantalla grande y la excelente cámara, pero otras cosas no. Después de un par de semanas con el teléfono más avanzado de Apple, hay veces que me sorprendo a mí mismo irritado, en parte por problemas con el sistema Face ID, pero también por otras cosas. Echemos un vistazo a las mayores molestias que causa el iPhone X y cómo solucionarlas. Face ID parece demorarse En realidad, quizás estás esperando un poco más de lo necesario. Cuando tocas o levantas el iPhone, o presionas el botón para despertarlo en el costado, ves un pequeño candado casi en el extremo superior de la pantalla. Después que te reconoce el rostro (en un segundo o dos) el candado se abre y permite hacer lo que quieres. Pero en realidad no tienes que esperar a ver el candado animado que se abre. En mi experiencia, Face ID funciona más rápido que eso, lo que significa que … [Read more...] about Las mayores 9 molestias del iPhone X y cómo solucionarlas
I've been asking the folks at Speck to make a magnetic-mount friendly case for a while and now the company's finally done it.The Presidio Mount, which looks like a standard Presidio case, incorporates two steel plates "strategically positioned and embedded between the case's two layers of protection." Made in partnership with Scosche, the case is designed to work with Scosche's family of MagicMount magnetic mounts but would also adhere to other magnetic mounts. It starts at $45 and will be available in February. No word yet on international pricing yet.A lot of magnetic mounts come with a plate that you stick on the back of your phone (underneath your case). This isn't ideal because, depending on the thickness of the case you use, your phone may not adhere to the magnet as well as it should."Because they are embedded, the metal plates aren't visible and won't blemish the device," Speck says. And just as importantly: "They are pre-installed at the optimal position to prevent … [Read more...] about This is the Speck iPhone case you want to drive with
