Convenience can be a good reason for a long search history. Instagram is no stranger to this concept, saving a list of recent searches on the iPhone for quick access. Saved information can include tags, Instagram users or any search term that's entered into the search field. While it may not often be necessary, it's good to know that the search history can easily be deleted.
Apple may finally take the plunge into TV production, with reports of a series starring Dr. Dre in the works. Besides original programming, the company is also set to announce the iPad Air 3 and an upgraded 4-inch iPhone. Both new devices could launch quickly after the official announcement in mid-March. Instagram fans can now easily switch between accounts, and Facebook fans can upload Live Photos. Here are some of the highlights in Apple news this week, including a record dividend for AAPL shareholders.
Instagram now officially supports multiple accounts. The feature makes it possible to quickly switch between several different Instagram accounts, without having to log out. For many Instagram users who manage multiple accounts, this new capability will streamline the process and make jumping between different usernames much easier than before. Once more accounts are added, notifications for any account that has them turned on will appear on the iOS device.
When the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus debuted last September, Live Photos was one of the highly touted new features that was introduced. The Live Photos camera setting allows users to liven up a photo and more fully capture a moment by recording 1.5 seconds before and after the still image. The three second clips are not so easy to share yet however, as viewing them currently requires an iOS 9 device.
Instagram users may have already noticed an improvement in picture quality over the past several days. Last week the company announced it would roll out higher resolution uploads and photo viewing on its iOS and Android apps. For those keeping track, current Instagram resolution is 640 x 640 pixels. The upgrade will bring image resolution up to 1080 x 1080, almost tripling the number of pixels in each photo. Even better, the update will not require Instagram fans to download a new version of the app.
