How to set up your new Apple Watch

The Apple Watch has become its own thing, more a separate, independent device over the years, but it is still tied to your iPhone — and especially when you're setting it up.

Uploading screenshots for “iPad Pro (12.9-inch) (3rd generation)”

Starting March 20, 2019 Apple’s App Store requires 12.9-inch iPad Pro (3rd generation) screenshots additionally to the iPad Pro 2nd generation screenshots. As fastlane historically uses the screenshot dimensions to determine the “display family” of a screenshot, this poses a problem as both use the same dimensions and are recognized as the same device family.

To solve this a screenshot of a 12.9-inch iPad Pro (3rd generation) must contain either the string iPad Pro (12.9-inch) (3rd generation), IPAD_PRO_3GEN_129, or ipadPro129 (Apple’s internal naming of the display family for the 3rd generation iPad Pro) in its filename to be assigned the correct display family and to be uploaded to the correct screenshot slot in your app’s metadata.

What Type of User Liked Path?

Path was an ideal app for anyone who felt overwhelmed by the massive growth or large personal networks that Facebook generated. The Path app catered to those who wanted a more private way to share experiences only with the people who mattered most to them.

About the Path Mobile App

Path was a mobile app for iPhones and Android devices that launched in November of 2010. It served as a personal journal for connecting and sharing with close friends and family. Path founder Dave Morin, a former Facebook executive, said the app gave users a place to “capture all the experiences on their path through life.”

With Path, users created a multimedia timeline, called a path, consisting of updates and interactions between friends and family. They could also follow the personal paths of others and interact with them. In many ways, the Path app was similar to the look and functionality of the Facebook Timeline feature.

Path was available exclusively through the Apple App Store and the Android Market (now known as the Google Play Store), offering no web version.
