iOS 11 is the most advanced version of Apple’s operating system yet, but it seems to have come with more than its fair share of problems. While many people had trouble upgrading in the first place, those running the new iOS have now found their battery life seems to be draining much faster. And they’re right. Every year some people believe the latest version of iOS is designed to make older phones worse, but this year that seems to actually be the case.
Just a few weeks ago, Apple released not one, not two, but three iPhones. The standard iPhone 8 sits at the bottom of the three, with the new iPhone 8 Plus slightly above it. But the iPhone X sits above both – an all-new smartphone, and a revolution in Apple design. Featuring a OLED screen that covers almost the entire front of the phone – as well as a faster A11 chip, Face ID and wireless charging – the iPhone X is the ultimate iPhone.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is an outstanding phone. Our five-star review named it as 2017’s best, and the handset’s success, along with that of the Galaxy Note 8, has pretty much succeeded in quashing bad memories of the Note 7 debacle. But 2018 is another year, and that means it’s time for another shiny rectangle to be pooped from the techno-capitalism machine.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
