Today, Mozilla updated the mobile versions of its Firefox web browser on iOS and Android with an overhauled home page and a new tab management feature.

Mozilla wrote in a blog post today announcing the update that the mobile version of the browser is specifically designed for "on-the-go, short bursts of online interactions that are constantly interrupted by life."

To that end, the new update seeks to make it easier to jump into previously abandoned or uninterrupted content. There's a new "jump back in" feature that lets you go directly to your last opened tab.

    How to Use App Privacy Report in the iOS 15.2 Beta - It also shows what network domains are contacted by which apps

    Danie van der Merwe · / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Friday, 29 October - 10:24

This functionality is a lot easier now to use than some low-level log reader type apps of the past. Not only is it easily showing, by app, what sensor and data is being accessed, it also shows the most commonly accessed network domains, and which apps are contacting them in the background.

If you have iOS v15.2 Beta you may want to activate this as it is off by default.

Timed with the launch of macOS Monterey , Apple today pushed out new versions of iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1 most notably add SharePlay, a flagship feature intended for iOS 15 that didn't make the annual release's launch last month.

SharePlay is Apple's word for a suite of features that allows consumption of content with other callers inside a FaceTime call, like watching synchronized streams of Apple TV+ shows and Apple Fitness+ workouts. There's also an API to allow third-party applications to offer the same features.

    Utilisez votre smartphone Android / iOS comme webcam / Korben · Sunday, 17 October - 07:00 · 1 minute

Si vous avez un smartphone Android / iOS et une pénurie de caméra ou de webcam chez vous, j’ai ce qu’il vous faut. Cela s’appelle Droidcam, et c’est une application pour Android / iPhone + client Windows / Linux qui permet de transformer votre smartphone en caméra.

Vous installez Droidcam d’un côté (sur le smartphone), le client qui va bien en allant le télécharger ici et il suffit ensuite de mettre votre ordinateur et votre smartphone sur le même réseau Wifi ou reliés avec un câble USB.

Une fois l’adresse IP de votre smartphone entrée dans le client Windows / Linux, vous verrez alors apparaître le flux vidéo de la caméra du téléphone. Ce flux vidéo sera ensuite exploitable en configurant dans vos outils habituels (Zoom, Skype, OBS…etc) l’utilisation de la webcam Droidcam . Vous pouvez même récupérer le son du micro (même bluetooth).

Dans sa version gratuite, l’outil est très basique mais ça peut dépanner. Notez que le smartphone reste utilisable même si Droidcam est utilisé (en tâche de fond donc…).

Il existe aussi une version pro payante qui vous apportera plus de fonctionnalité sur les contrôles caméra, la qualité du flux…etc

Amusez-vous bien !

    iPadOS 15 mini-review: Playing catch-up with the iPhone / ArsTechnica · Thursday, 7 October - 22:33

Widgets on iPadOS 15

Last year, Apple released a meaty iOS update for iPhones, but some of the biggest changes didn't make it over to the iPad. This year, the iPhone update is modest—so does that mean that the iPad update is the big one this time around?

Well, that depends on your point of view. iPadOS 15 brings almost everything iOS 15 brought to iPhones, but it also brings those major iOS 14 omissions from last year to the tablet. As a result, iPadOS 15 feels like a significant update if you haven't been using an iPhone lately, but if you've already used iOS 14's new home screen and app library features, it instead ends up feeling like it's late to the party.

We published a lengthy, iPhone-focused review of iOS 15 earlier this week. Consider this a short addendum to that review that puts the spotlight on the iPad. Refer to the earlier review for details on new features like Focus that aren't iPad specific or for a list of iPads that are supported by iPadOS 15.
