In a rare move, Apple has released early the 11.2 update for iOS in response to news about a bug for the 12/2 date that caused phones to loop based off local triggered notifications. In addition to the bug fix for this newly discovered ailment, 11.2 brings the long-awaited Apple Pay Cash to the iOS environment. Apple Pay Cash is similar to Venmo and Square Cash, but takes peer to peer payments to the next level.
This morning, Apple quietly released a brilliant new update for their Clips app, supporting both augmented reality and the new iPhone X. The Clips app, originally released earlier this year, has not picked up as much steam and retention as Apple would hope for, but this new update should start pushing it in that direction. How? AR and Star Wars. That’ll do it. The app has a redesigned layout making it a bit easier, and less clunky, to use.
The wait is finally over. Apple’s 10th Anniversary iPhone, the new iPhone X, was announced in early September alongside the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and Apple Watch Series 3. While they all shipped three weeks later, most of the Apple world waited breathlessly for the release of the X. The new X marks the first major design change overall to the iPhone more or less since its release a decade ago, and with that change comes a small learning curve, and a very promising future.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
