  Apple will replace your busted iPad 4 with the iPad Air 2 If you bought Apple's first iPad with the now-ubiquitous Lightning connector (released way back in late 2012) and need to get it repaired, you might end up with a pleasant upgrade. Apple has told its employees to inform customers of the iPad Air 2's various colors (it was the first iPad available in gold) and capacity options. If you had a 16GB or 64GB iPad that you're getting replaced, you might end up with a storage bump, as well -- the iPad Air 2 that Apple is offering as replacements comes in 32GB and 128GB capacities.

I made Live Photos work on the web and it brought my computer to a grinding halt. Even within Apple ’ s Ecosystem, iCloud Photo Sharing’s public website and’s Photos app ignore remove the life from your Live Photos , showing only still images.

Tumblr was the first to fully integrate the format last fall, but Google was the first to store Live Photos online over a year ago with an update to its Google Photos app for iOS. Then it released Motion Stills for Apple devices in June, an app that converted the hybrid media to looping GIFs or movie files so they could be exported and uploaded to the internet at large. After another update last month, Google's app will likely continue be the most popular method to transfer Live Photos to the web for awhile since Apple's API will still need developers to build it into apps and sites.
