While some streaming music services are shuttering their doors, others are still going strong — even expanding. iHeartRadio is looking to take new ground in 2016.
The Holiday Season is just over and many of us have come into some pretty great gifts during this time. The 4th Generation Apple TV is a great gift to have come across. The newest version offers a 32 or 64 GB hard drive that can be filled with popular apps like HBO GO, Netflix, Hulu and so on. And this time around, owners can download a bunch of apps like the addictive Crossy Road from the App Store. But what else can you do with your brand new device? Take a look at our nice list of Apple TV tips and tricks.
Apple is famously known for creating a network of devices that benefit from one another working together. Steve Jobs pushed his team to create products that easily connected to one another, adding value to owning multiple Apple devices. So, if when I purchased the new Apple TV 4, I knew that my other Apple devices would play a big role in how I used my Apple TV.
Apple TV 4 is one of my favorite Apple purchases. I’ve already covered some of the basics for using the device and its new Siri Remote. But while it is super easy to just leave the device running until it turns off automatically, you can manually put the device into sleep mode. You can also restart the device should you run into any issues.
The iPhone is the most popular camera in the world. That means that iPhone owners take pictures with their phone time and time again, saving these images to their devices or their iCloud storage to be accessed and shared later. Apple TV owners can share these same images on the big screen through a screensaver or slideshow using their iCloud account.
The new, 4th Generation Apple TV introduced the new aerial view screen savers which span across major world cities and produce super-high-quality live images taken from a fancy drone. These images are really stunning to look at, but can get old after some time. Plus, if you have great photos from your last trip on your computer, it’s always cool to add a more personal, homey touch to your Apple TV. You have always been able to stream photos from My Photos or via your iCloud photos, but fewer people know that they can stream photos from any folder on their computer with Home Sharing enabled.
While the video below dates back to 1994, most people still don’t really know how the internet works. When you say things like HTTPS, CDN or DNS, most people don’t know or don’t care what those acronyms stand for. Just as long as they can get to iPhoneHacks.com when they type it in their search bar, everything is good. But in order for your service provider to find iPhoneHacks.com out of all the other websites in the world, it uses a DNS (Domain Name System) to translate the IP address of our site into easy to consume alphabetized characters.
