While Apple devices and Macs might be optimized for the AirPods Max, they can be used like any other wireless headphones. This means the AirPods Max can be paired to any compatible Bluetooth device. Pairing the AirPods Max with a Bluetooth connection may limit some features, however listening to high-quality audio works just fine. Getting the AirPods Max to pair to your non-Apple device means putting the headphones in pairing mode.
The grid view of app icons on Apple Watch acts like the macOS dock, making apps that are closer to the center larger. Swiping around a large collection of apps floating like bubbles is not everyone's favorite interface. For those who prefer to see app names, a scrollable list may be easier to use. Switching between the two is accomplished with a few taps.
The app view can be changed at any time, either on the paired iPhone or on the Apple Watch directly. Once the app view is switched to a list, the Digital Crown can be used to browse apps.
According to reports, the much-rumored blood glucose sensor will debut in the Apple Watch Series 7. Korean sources point to Samsung, which has developed non-invasive blood sugar measurement technology. The company is poised to introduce the sensor on its upcoming Galaxy Watch refresh. Apple does not intend to be left behind.
One of the new features included in the iOS 14.4 update is the ability to classify your Bluetooth devices. While many of your devices will automatically be identified and categorized correctly as a speaker, headphone, car stereo, etc., some may not, and now you can manually classify them.
The AirPods, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max have one thing in common, they all automatically switch between the iPhone, iPad, or Mac. This means if you're wearing AirPods and switch devices, the audio connection follows wherever the same iCloud account is used. For some situations, this feature can be an inconvenience.
