iMovie 3.0 makes it easier than ever for anyone to share their stories with video.

Apple today introduced a new version of iMovie with features that make it easier than ever to create beautifully edited videos on iPhone and iPad.

Storyboards help aspiring content creators and moviemakers learn to edit and improve their video storytelling skills with pre-made templates for popular types of videos shared on social, with colleagues, or with classmates — videos like DIYs, cooking tutorials, product reviews, science experiments, and more.

Storyboards make it easy to get started with flexible shot lists and step-by-step guidance on which clips to capture for each video type.

For those who want to create a video even faster, Magic Movie instantly creates a polished video from the clips and photos a user selects, automatically adding transitions, effects, and music to the edit.

Both new features include a range of styles to help personalize the final look and feel of a video, including titles, filters, transitions, colour palettes, and music, all designed to work together.

“iMovie has empowered millions of people around the world to create and share their stories through video,” said Bob Borchers, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.

“This latest version of iMovie, featuring Storyboards and Magic Movie, simplifies video creation even further, and we think it will continue to inspire the next wave of video creators to dive in and get started.”

Creators can experiment by applying different video styles that include titles and transitions, as well as options for title layouts, fonts, filters, and colour palettes.

Music tracks dynamically adjust to fit the length of a project, and users can refine each clip with intuitive editing tools like trim, split, clip speed, and clip volume.

Completed Storyboard videos are easily shared from iMovie through Messages, Mail, and across social media platforms.

iMovie availability and required devices.

iMovie 3.0, including the new Storyboards and Magic Movie features, is available today as a free update on the App Store for devices running iOS 15.2 or later and iPadOS 15.2 or later. This means the update is available for iPhone 6s and later.

Apple Announced Self Service Repair program for iPhone.

Apple Announced Self Service Repair program for iPhone.

Genuine Apple parts and tools can now be purchased by US customers

Apple today announced Self Service Repair is now available, providing repair manuals and genuine Apple parts and tools through the Apple Self Service Repair Store. Self Service Repair is available in the US and will expand to additional countries — beginning in Europe — later this year.

The new online store offers more than 200 individual parts and tools, enabling customers who are experienced with the complexities of repairing electronic devices to complete repairs on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lineups and iPhone SE (3rd generation), such as the display, battery, and camera. Later this year the program will also include manuals, parts, and tools to perform repairs on Mac computers with Apple silicon.

To start the Self Service Repair process, a customer will first review the repair manual for the product they want to repair by visiting support.apple.com/self-service-repair. Then, they can visit the Apple Self Service Repair Store and order the necessary parts and tools.

Every genuine Apple part is designed and engineered for each product and goes through extensive testing to ensure the highest quality, safety, and reliability. The parts are the same ones — at the same price — as those available to Apple’s network of authorized repair providers. For certain repairs, customers will receive a credit when returning a replaced part for recycling. 

The Apple tools available to customers in the Self Service Repair Store are the same as those used by Apple’s repair network. They are custom-designed to help provide the best repairs for Apple products and are engineered to withstand the rigors of high volume. In these professional repair operations, safety and reliability are the utmost priority. The high-quality tools offered through Self Service Repair include torque drivers, repair trays, displays, battery presses, and more.

Apple will offer tool rental kits for $49 so that customers who do not want to purchase tools for a single repair still have access to these professional repair tools. The weeklong rental kits will ship to customers for free. 

Self Service Repair is part of Apple’s efforts to further expand access to repairs. For the vast majority of customers who do not have experience repairing electronic devices, visiting a professional repair provider with certified technicians who use genuine Apple parts is the safest and most reliable way to get a repair.

Over the past three years, Apple has nearly doubled the number of service locations with access to genuine Apple parts, tools, and training, including more than 3,000 Independent Repair Providers. A global network of more than 5,000 Apple Authorized Service Providers supports more than 100,000 active technicians. As a result, in the US, eight out of 10 Apple customers are located within 20 minutes of an authorized service provider. 

Also today, Apple published a paper, “Expanding Access to Safe, Reliable, and Secure Service and Repair,” which details Apple’s approach to designing long-lasting products and increasing access to repairs.

So in this article, we look at the pros and cons of the old device, the iPhone 8 plus to decide on the question, Should you buy the iPhone 8 plus in 2022?

let begin,

 iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were released in September 2017 alongside the unique design flagship iPhone x 

Apple actually decided to maintain the same old iPhone 6, 6s, and 7 set design. This made the iPhone 8 Plus indistinguishable from the iPhone 6 plus which is a four years ago identical look.

 However, the iPhone 8 and 8 plus models were built on a glass front and back with a metal band around the edges of the device.

iPhone 8 Plus had a 5.5-inch screen display with annoying front bezels.

The device does not have a bad display as it featured bright, clear, and quite accurate colours Which are only 1080p and it’s matched as 1920 by 1080 with 401 pixels per inch. 

This display measurement can be seen on previous models as well.

let’s talk about biometrics and security.

The device also featured 2nd generation of touch ID. Which is conveniently placed on the front of the phone. It’s fast and it is accurate as always.

The touch ID response is still fast in 2022, thanks to apple’s well-built software configuration. 

Camera.

iPhone 8 plus has a primary wide-angle lens with 12 megapixels and an aperture of f1/1.8 with optical image stabilization.

However, the secondary telephoto lens with 12 megapixels and an

aperture of f2/8 did not feature optical image stabilization. 

iPhone 8 Plus is capable of recording video at 4k at 60 frames per second which is quite amazing.

 This gives you chance to tone it down to 30 frames per second.

 On the front, we have a 7-megapixel camera with an aperture of f-22 which is great for selfies and FaceTime video calls.

Battery

iPhone 8 plus will give you a full-day battery experience with a 100% battery life.

The iPhone 8 Plus have wireless charging and it supports fast wired charging which will charge your phone to 50% from 0% in 30 minutes but you can only achieve this if you buy the additional Apple USB- C power adapter the one that comes in the box does not support fast charging.

storage.

The iPhone starts with a base storage of 64-gigabyte model and 256-gigabyte model.

The iPhone 8 plus is a good device despite the fact that the old lady won’t match the camera capabilities of the latest iPhone 13 series, which has undergone massive improvement with both internal and external features.

Individual users from the 2014 and 2015 old flagships who are on a tight budget can make such a decision by going for the 2017 flagship. From a general point of view, a daily iPhone user will have enough battery and massive performance from the 2017 iPhone 8 plus on a single charge.

According to our personal experience with 8 plus for two months of continuous usage, we can confidently say it is worth going for the 2017 flagship. Users stand a chance of saving big for better and improve devices in an efficient ios ecosystem.

The iPhone 8 plus will also receive ios software support for additional years.
