Home AppsApps News Tasneem Akolawala, 22 March 2017 Highlights iTunes 12.6 to allow multiple devices to watch same movie rentals
Earlier, it restricted movie viewing only on the purchased device
This feature is supported with iOS 10.3 and tvOS 10.2 softwares Apple has released an updated version of iTunes that brings a much needed multiscreen viewing feature. Called 'rent once, watch anywhere', the feature allows users to rent a movie from an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, and watch it on any of the mentioned devices later. This is useful because earlier the user was restricted to the device it rented the movie on, and could not watch it anywhere else.
Apple notes that this feature will work on all devices running on iOS 10.3 or tvOS 10.2. Both the software versions are still in beta, and the roll out of this feature with iTunes 12.6 indicates that these software versions are also going to come out of beta soon.
As mentioned, users earlier did not have the liberty to watch a rented movie on any other device, apart from the one they used for purchasing it. Now, iTunes 12.6 removes that restriction and allows you to watch the rented movie on any iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV running on iOS 10.3 oe tvOS10.2.
Before iTunes 12.6, there was a workaround to this limitation, but it was a lengthy process. Apple Insider notes that 'Apple previously allowed movies rented via iTunes on Mac or PC to be transferred to a portable device by syncing over USB, but that content would disappear from a computer's iTunes library. Alternatively, users were able to stream downloaded rentals from iOS to Apple TV using Apple's AirPlay feature'.
The 'rent once, watch anywhere' feature will especially be welcomed by those users who own multiple Apple devices, and you can download iTunes 12.6 by heading to Check for Updates in the iTunes File menu.

Home AndroidAndroid Features Gadgets 360 Staff, 22 March 2017 Highlights Changing DNS can help improve security, or speed up your connection
On phones, you can change the DNS for Wi-Fi connections
You need to root your phone to change it for mobile data In our last couple of how-to articles, we've already talked about changing the DNS settings for your PC, and for your iPhone. Today, we're going to outline how you can change the DNS server when connecting to networks using your Android device.
As we explained earlier, the “address” of sites on the Web is actually a series of numbers, and DNS (Domain Name System) is how your browser converts these names (such as www.google.com) into IP addresses. By default, all your connections will use a DNS server provided by the ISP, but these might be slower or less reliable than certain third-party DNS options, such as Google DNS and Open DNS. Using these DNS servers can also help to access blocked websites. For these reasons, you should consider changing your DNS settings.
This is how you change DNS servers on Android:
Open the Wi-Fi settings on your device. You could do this by launching Settings and going to Wi-Fi, or by pulling down the notification shade and long-pressing the Wi-Fi icon. Now, open the network options for your Wi-Fi network. The way this works will depend on your phone; you may have to long-press the name of the Wi-Fi, and the tap on Modify Network, or there might be an arrow on the side, depending on your manufacturer and version of Android. In the network details, scroll to the bottom, and tap on IP Settings. If you don't see that menu, look for a button marked Advanced, and then you'll see IP Settings. Change this to static. Change DNS1 and DNS2 to the settings you want – for example, Google DNS is 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 respectively.
That's all there is to it. Unfortunately, much like iOS, Android also does not permit users to change the DNS settings for mobile data connections – you can do it by rooting your phone, but that's a step for more advanced users, and one we would not recommend in this guide.
We hope that helped you to change DNS servers on your Android devices. For more tutorials, visit our How To section.

Reliance Jio and Airtel spar over Speedtest app results
Reliance Jio has lodged a complaint against Airtel for running advertisements claiming that it has the fastest network. Airtel's claim is based on a report by Ookla – makers of the Speedtest app. The Mukesh Ambani-backed telecom operator says it has served a legal notice to Ookla. Jio has called the Airtel advertisements “false, misleading and incorrect,” and says the Ookla report is based on “flawed test.” In response, Airtel in a statement said it is “rather amused by the allegations being made against [its] campaign,” and called Jio’s complain “a deliberate attempt to malign our brand and misguide customers.” Ookla has also stood behind its claim of Airtel being the fastest network, and said that it has received no legal communication from Jio.

Home TabletsTablets News Gadgets 360 Staff With Agency Inputs, 21 March 2017 Apple unveiled an updated version of its iPad tablet with a brighter screen and Apple A9 chip on Tuesday, available to order from Friday and with a $329 starting price that is the lowest ever for a full-sized tablet from Apple. The new 9.7-iPad will be available in India in April, where it will retail at Rs. 28,900 for the 32GB Wi-Fi model, while the 32GB Wi-Fi+Cellular model is priced at at Rs. 39,900.
The new iPad model starts at 32 GB of storage and is slightly larger than the $399 iPad Air 2, the model it replaces in Apple's iPad lineup. It will be slightly less expensive than the smaller iPad Mini 4, which starts at $399 (Rs. 34,900 in India) for a 128 GB model.
“iPad is the world’s most popular tablet. Customers love the large, 9.7-inch display for everything from watching TV and movies, to surfing the web, making FaceTime calls, and enjoying photos, and now it is even more affordable,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “New customers and anyone looking to upgrade will love this new iPad for use at home, in school, and for work, with its gorgeous Retina display, our powerful A9 chip, and access to the more than 1.3 million apps designed specifically for it.”
Apple also released a new red colour variant for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and said its smaller iPhone SE model will be available in 32 and 128 gigabyte (GB) versions, replacing the 16 GB and 64 GB models.
The hardware updates are incremental improvements that were announced without a major media event. Apple is widely expected to unveil an update to its flagship iPhone this fall that might have new features such as wireless charging, 3D facial recognition and a curved display.
Apple also announced a new app for creating videos and sharing them with friends on its iOS devices. The new feature, along with extra iMessage features released in recent years, pushes Apple closer to competing with the features in social networking apps like Snap Inc.
The new app, called Clips, lets users add captions and speech bubbles to videos and share them on social networks such as Facebook, Instagram or Apple's own messaging app, where videos can be sent to contacts with a single tap. But unlike Snap or other messaging apps, users can add captions to videos using their voice.

Home PodcastsPodcasts Features Pranay Parab , 21 March 2017 Apple has slashed the MRP of the iPhone SE in India significantly. This makes the iPhone SE the mid-range Apple smartphone many in India were waiting for. Apple also announced the iPhone 7 (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition and launched a new iPad. Reviews editor Jamshed Avari and games editor Rishi Alwani join host Pranay Parab to talk about the latest announcements from Apple.
The most important development is the big price cut on the iPhone SE. We discuss whether this is indeed a price cut or more of an MRP adjustment based on market realities. We also talk about the older variants on the iPhone SE and how they're available at all-time low prices now. Does this make iPhone SE a serious threat to Android smartphones in India? Jamshed and Rishi air their thoughts on this.
Then we move to discussion about the iPhone 7 (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition and a debate about whether its looks follows. Once the dust settles, we talk about whether it adds anything other than cosmetic enhancements to the iPhone 7.
We then talk about the iPad. It's an upgrade to the iPad Air 2 but does it offer good value for money? Is it a good device for gaming? We also compare it with the iPad Pro 9.7″ and wonder whether anyone should buy the Pro variant anymore considering that it costs over Rs. 20,000 more and offers a relatively small performance boost. We also discuss whether the iPad mini will be around for much longer.
Finally, we speculate about future Apple launches and which of the company's products are going to get upgrades in the near future. That is followed by buying advice for those who want iPhone, iPad, or a Mac.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings talks to reporters at an event in Los Gatos
Highlights India's iPhone market is large enough for Netflix
Netflix isn't “anti-theatre”, says Hastings
It's open to zero-rating plans that are neutral There’s a massive price difference between Netflix and Amazon Prime Video in India, but Netflix CEO Reed Hastings isn’t too worried about that. “In India, there’s close to 30 million iPhone owners, because it’s such a big country,” he said. “So, there’s a very large market, [which] has the ability and the interest in the content that we have. And that’s really the segment we are going after.”
Hastings was speaking to a group of reporters gathered at Netflix’s headquarters in Los Gatos last week, and a week before that during a visit to India, he told reporters that he thinks people will choose to have multiple competing options – from Netflix, Amazon, and Hotstar – just as most do in the US. And given the current size and projected growth, he knows that India holds enormous market potential for Netflix, and feels its progress here will be a lot like in Brazil – slow in the beginning as it learns the market, and then a “significant success”.
Back in familiar territory to coincide with the launch of Marvel's Iron First, Hastings talked about how the television landscape has changed within the last decade, thanks to the Internet. “In the old days, if you wanted to start a network, that entailed hundreds and thousands of dollars in government licenses,” he said. “And now, you develop an app, and you’re a TV network.”
What hasn’t changed a lot during the Internet-era, according to Hastings, is how much of the Netflix UI is reminiscent of a listing – you click on something, and you get the detail page. “We’ve got to do more, the way Airbnb, Snapchat, and Facebook video work,” he said. “To continue to push the edge in mobile video, and what we can do there.”
Hastings said that Netflix wants to be a marriage of great technology and great content, which explains its heavy investment in film production, with the likes of Bright starring Will Smith, and Martin Scorsese’s next project The Irishman.
“How has distribution in the movie business innovated in the last 30 years? Well, the popcorn tastes better, but that’s about it,” Hastings said, as a jab. “What Netflix wants to do, is unleash film.”
“If we can de-couple ourselves from the theatre-gets-the-first-six-months, then we can open up all kinds of new distribution strategies, which then grows the ecosystem, and we get more films made,” he added. “So, we’re not anti-theatre, we just want things to come out at the same time.”
While it’s been able to revolutionise the TV model, Netflix is facing backlash from cinema chains in the US when it comes to movies, who are unwilling to work with day-to-day releases. To qualify for the Oscars – which attracts Hollywood talent to the streaming service – Netflix struck a deal with a small-time chain, in iPic Entertainment, last year.
The problem doesn’t extend to some international releases, though. Bong Joon-ho’s upcoming sci-fi film Okja will release in South Korea, and on Netflix, simultaneously in June.
Its biggest on-demand competitor in the movie business, Amazon, has stuck to the conventional method – giving films a theatrical window, before they arrive for subscribers. Oscar-winning Manchester by the Sea, follows that example.
Hastings also provided his thoughts on the zero-rating plans being pursued by the likes of T-Mobile in the US. “We don’t see it as a conflict, because T-Mobile is making it open to all video providers They are not choosing one over the other,” he said. “The key thing is, it’s neutral – that any video provider can sign up, there’s no fees.”
The only caveat is that T-Mobile requires Netflix to stream at a lower bitrate, about 1 megabit, to save on network bandwidth. That in turn allows T-Mobile to provide unlimited data to customers. Hastings’ comments connected directly into his remarks at MWC in Barcelona last month. Netflix is working to bring the number down further.
“We've got it down to 200kb[ps] and we're working on 100kb[ps],” Hastings said in Delhi “but already, at 200kbps you get a great picture on a 4- to 5-inch screen, and on 1GB data, you can watch for 25 hours.”
Lastly, as part of the Q&A session at Los Gatos, when asked once again why Netflix doesn’t release ratings for its shows, Hastings joked that withholding statistics gives them “mystery and intrigue”, and added: “There’s so much discussion about every show. How did it do? And so, it benefits us, because there’s such a fascination about it.”
He pointed to the lack of advertising, which is generally the reason networks make ratings public. “We haven’t released ratings in 10 years,” he said, “and it hasn’t held us back.”
Disclosure: Netflix sponsored the correspondent's flights and hotels for the event in Los Gatos.

We are awaiting information on if there are any pricing changes in India. Interestingly, this comes during a time that 16Gb and 64GB iPhone SE models are being sold at a discount in India.
Back to the new red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which are being released in recognition of more than 10 years of partnership between Apple and (RED). Part of the proceeds of sales from Apple’s (PRODUCT)RED range go to the Global Fund HIV/AIDS grants that provide testing, counselling, treatment and prevention programs with a specific focus on eliminating transmission of the virus from moms to their babies.
“Since we began working with (RED) 10 years ago, our customers have made a significant impact in fighting the spread of AIDS through the purchase of our products, from the original iPod nano (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition all the way to today’s lineup of Beats products and accessories for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “The introduction of this special edition iPhone in a gorgeous red finish is our biggest (PRODUCT)RED offering to date in celebration of our partnership with (RED), and we can’t wait to get it into customers’ hands.”
The special edition iPhone joins the current (PRODUCT)RED lineup, which includes the full iPod line of products, Beats Solo 3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones, Beats Pill+ Portable Speaker, the iPhone 7 Smart Battery Case and a range of accessories for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
