From your device, link to the full resolution image by tapping the individual images. When the new window opens, tap the Safari Extensions icon in the bottom area of your browser, (it looks like a box with an up arrow sticking out of it), and tap “Save image” to save the image to your Photo Library.

Download Directions for Apple Watch

From your iPhone, link to the full resolution image by tapping the individual images. When the new window opens, tap the Safari Extensions icon in the bottom area of your browser, (it looks like a box with an up arrow sticking out of it), and tap “Save image” to save the image to your Photo Library.

After you’ve saved all of the wallpapers you’d like to use, open the Photos app on your iPhone and move the new images to the album you use to share images with you Apple Watch. Now you can go to your Apple Watch, select the new wallpaper as a watch face, and customize it to your heart’s content. If you do download several of the wallpapers and move them to your Watch, you can even set them to rotate between them each time you view your watch face!

Download & Installation Instructions for the Mac

From your Mac, click your mouse pointer on one of the images. When the full-sized image appears in your browser, right-click or CTRL-Click on the image, and click on “Save Image As…” to save the image to your Mac’s hard drive.

Now, right-click or CTRL-click on your desktop, and select “Change Desktop Background…” In the Desktop & Screen Saver dialog box that appears, click the “+” button at the bottom of the left panel. Navigate to the directory you saved the wallpaper in, and double-click the wallpaper filename.

Or, as reader Biff Bifferson pointed out, you can just right-click on the image in the browser and click “Set As Desktop Background.” That both changes the desktop AND saves the image.

Images Purportedly Show A11 Processor Which Will Power iPhone 8

A pair of blurry images allegedly show the A11 series System on a Chip that will power the soon to debut “iPhone 8” handset.

MacRumors:

All iPhone models coming in the fall are expected to use the A11 chip, including the iterative “S” cycle upgrades to Apple’s existing 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones. The processor relies on a new 10-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process introduced by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the sole supplier of the new chip.

TSMC was reported to have been awarded exclusive rights to manufacture the A11 for Apple last year, thanks to its advanced manufacturing techniques.

The A11 is expected to be faster and more power efficient than its predecessors. This should lead to better performance and improved battery life in the upcoming new iPhones.

The “iPhone 8” is expected to debut in September, and is said to feature a glass body with an edge-to-edge OLED display that no longer features a Home Button. A new facial recognition system is rumored to replace or supplement the tried and true Touch ID system for user identification.

Cops Knocking on Your Door? iOS 11 ‘Emergency SOS’ Feature Quickly Disable’s Touch ID

iOS 11 adds an “Emergency SOS” feature that allows users to quickly press the sleep/wake button on their iPhone five times rapidly to summon emergency assistance if needed. There is also a great privacy-based side effect to this.

Cops Knocking on Your Door? iOS 11 'Emergency SOS' Feature Quickly Disable's Touch ID

When summoning Emergency SOS on the iPhone with the five presses of the sleep/wake button, you’ll see a screen that offers options to power the device off, bring up your Medical ID information, or make an emergency 911 call. You can also press a cancel button if you desire.

If you tap the cancel button, you’ll be required to enter your passcode before Touch ID can be re-enabled. Touch ID will also be disabled if you opt to make an emergency call.

This feature is privacy-enhancing as this prevents your iPhone from being unlocked using your fingerprint. This is perfect for those times when you might might be forced to unlock your device using your fingerprint, such as when Johnny Law might be a knockin’ at your door.

Courts have ruled in the past that while law enforcement can’t force you to unlock your iPhone by using your passcode, they can force you to unlock it using your fingerprint(s). With Touch ID disabled, they have no way of forcing you to unlock the iPhone.

There is no way to tell that you’ve disabled Touch ID using the five rapid presses method, as once you hit cancel, the device wakes with the same message that it uses when it’s been 48 hours since you last unlocked the device using a fingerprint.

Note: This feature is included in the current beta of iOS 11, and could be removed or modified before the final release is pushed to the general public in September, following the debut of the new iPhones.
