Do you want a new iPhone? Donâ€™t event think about camping out at an Apple Store. Itâ€™s always been a little stressful trying to buy a new iPhone right when it comes out. But the hype around the iPhone 8 is crazier than usual, and rumor has it that it will only be available in limited quantities when it launchesâ€”which means that the supply-and-demand will definitely not be on our side.
After months and months (and months) of speculation, the iPhone 8 is finally upon us. But donâ€™t believe everything you read. In this weekâ€™s episode of The iPhone Show, I highlight only the rumors most likely to come true. OLED display? Virtual Home button? Facial recognition? Watch the vide above to see which iPhone 8 rumors are the most plausible. And if you want to get the details on everything thatâ€™s been speculated about this special iPhone, check out Macworldâ€™s ultimate rumor roundup.
Even though Appleâ€™s HomePod is not expected to launch until December, we already know enough to have some reservations about it. According to firmware update leaked by Apple, the HomePod is expected to run a version of iOS, just like your iPhone. But unlike your iPhone, it seems Appleâ€™s smart-speaker is not going to support third-party apps at launch.
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".
