Las redes 5G están en pañales (en México y Latinoamérica ni siquiera) y ya Huawei está pensando en el 6G. Así lo asegura el medio canadiense The Logic en un reporte del que Cnet se hizo eco.

 

La compañía china, vetada por Estados Unidos bajo la premisa de que representa riesgos para la seguridad del ‘mundo libre’, es la única que parece estar realmente preparada para dejar a la cuarta generación de redes comunicacionales atrás. Aunque mientras esté Donald Trump sentado en la Oficina Oval, la tendrán difícil para alcanzar una posición de dominio global.

Gmail for iOS finally supports Split View multitasking on iPads

Published

gmail-for-ios-finally-supports-split-view-multitasking-on-ipads

For the past several iOS (now iPadOS) releases, Apple has worked to improve multitasking on tablets. Split View lets you use two app at the same time, and Gmail on iPads now has support for this feature.

Google is addressing a long-running complaint with Gmail for iOS in adding support for Split View. That system-level feature was introduced with 2015’s iOS 9, but Google’s email client never got around to supporting it until last month.

The company only officially announced this “Multitasking with Gmail” advancement today, and it’s already widely available:

When using an iPad, you’re now able to multitask with Gmail and other iOS applications. You can use Gmail and Google Calendar at the same time with Split View to check your schedule before replying to an email to confirm a meeting time. Or, you can easily drag and drop pictures from Google Photos into an email without leaving Gmail.

Version 6.0.200531 rolled out three weeks ago, though the release notes make no mention of Split View support. It’s a long overdue addition that makes one of Google’s key apps a better citizen of the iOS platform.

Split View requires that you have the system-level “Allow Multiple Apps” preference — Settings app > Home Screen & Dock > Multitasking — enabled. After that, you can swipe up from the bottom of the screen when Gmail is active to open the Dock and drag another app on the screen.

Google recommends that users take advantage of keyboard shortcuts for “even more efficiency as you multitask.” This feature is available for both G Suite customers and free Google Accounts.

Portrait mode videos come to iPhone with Focos Live app

Published

portrait-mode-videos-come-to-iphone-with-focos-live-app

Portrait mode for iPhone arrived back in 2016 as a beta. The Bokeh effect photo feature has improved and evolved over the years but Apple still hasn’t offered the feature for shooting video. Now a new app called Focos Live adds the functionality to shoot wide aperture videos with a Bokeh effect on iPhone.

Shortly after Apple launched Portrait mode for photos, my colleague Michael Steeber wrote a detailed piece in 2017 describing how iPhone could take the feature further by offering Portrait mode for videos. He noted the most common options to get the effect in video:

If you want to create the same effect in a video today, there are two common options. The first and easiest is to spend the money on expensive cameras and lenses with a wide aperture – that’s what gives you a shallow depth of field.

The second and more tedious option is to use post-production software like Adobe After Effects to build your own depth maps or video masks in order to specify which parts of a scene should be in focus. This can involve a strenuous process called rotoscoping, a time-consuming task that is often done frame-by-frame.

Since then, some apps have tried to tackle adding a Bokeh effect to iPhone videos with software alone but that usually doesn’t work too well.

Now just shy of four years after Portrait mode arrived, what appears to be the first app to offer Portrait mode video has landed (via Ben Geskin). Focos Live allows you to shoot wide aperture with Bokeh effect videos for iPhones “on dual camera, triple camera, and front Face ID camera.”

The app looks to offer a variety of advanced features and granular controls including object tracking and auto aperture adjustment, multi-choice simulated aperture diaphragms, layer adjustment control, speed ramping, video reverse option, a standalone audio editor, and more.

Focos Live is available as a free download with in-app purchases to unlock the full feature set at $1.99/month, $8.99/year, or $14.99 for a lifetime subscription. So far the new app has a 4.4/5 star average rating.

After testing it, Ben did note that it doesn’t offer stabilization for some reason and that it works better with faces than inanimate objects.
