iPhone 11 Pro Max internals wallpaper

I recently purchased an iPhone 11 Pro, what a beautiful device!

This is a short post to share with you some pictures of the internals of the iPhone 11 Pro Max captured from a JerryRigEverything video who was so kind to make a great shot of the device on one of his great videos.

I have created an album in SmugMug with different versions of the screenshot so you can use the images as you like. You will be able to download the full quality images as SmugMug doesn’t alter the quality of the pictures you upload.

Hope you like them! And thank you Jerry for allowing us to make these captures!

PS: I recommend you to give SmugMug a try, they allow you to store unlimited pictures in their full quality for a very fair annual fee. With this link you get 20% off and me too 😉

How to have Apple Wireless Keyboard volume keys (and others) work in Windows 10

How to have Apple Wireless Keyboard volume keys (and others) work in Windows 10

I spent a couple of hours already figuring out which drivers I would need to install to have my Apple Wireless Keyboard with numeric pad (A1843) to work on Windows 10.

I was able to pair it by just adding the Bluetooth device (as you would do for any other device) but the problem is that I wanted to use the volume up and volume down shortcuts of the keyboard.
Unfortunately Apple does not develop straight forward drivers to have their keyboards to fully work on Windows 10, I guess its too much work?

Anyways, I found a way to make this work and it works pretty well.

It looks like HomeKit BlueTooth range is extended by other devices in your house!

It looks like HomeKit BlueTooth range is extended by other devices in your house!

Update: I am not 100% sure this is what is working for me, it seems that the distance between the Aqua and the Apple TV sometimes reaches sometimes it doesnt. But I will keep this post for now until someone else share their tests too.

Today I bought an EVE Aqua, essentially a way to control a water tap from your mobile device. While setting it up, I was able to make it work on my dinning room table. But when installed in the patio which is some more meters further away from the Apple TV 4K (which is acting as the Home Hub) the Bluetooth signal was not reaching to the Apple TV.

I was not planning to move the TV nor the Apple TV to another location because its just impractical. I must confess I first tried “helping” both devices by wrapping them in tin foil from behind to try to concentrate the signal towards each other (I dont even know how Bluetooth signal works) but it was worth trying, as I read it helped some people boosting drone range signals. Also, it was so easy to try, so why no? unfortunately that didn’t work.

10 things you can do to protect your digital life today

10 things you can do to protect your digital life today

Some time back a close friend called me for advice on how to protect his passwords, and more generally all of his digital information. He is feeling overwhelmed by the amount of data he has to remember like passwords, usernames, etc. He knows that if he starts writing down sensitive information on paper, I will kill him. Do not write down sensitive information on paper (If you are not going to properly protect this paper of course).

On this post you will find a list of points that will probably help a lot of people, especially if they didn’t do anything of this yet.

Let me start by saying this: Your information is yours and should never be on the hands of someone else without your knowledge. A lot of people I tried to share these tips with across my life, gave me answers like: “I don’t have anything important”…

What these persons usually fail to dimension is that they are not in general conscious about the amount of data that one accumulates over time and through different services.

Today it might just be some pictures of cats and dogs, tomorrow you start adding family photos, then your bank account access information, and then other more sensitive information.

So it’s better to start securing your digital life as soon as possible, and here are some things you can do about it:
