Apple Sends ‘Shot on iPhone 6’ Photographers Special Photo Books

The photographers who had their photos featured in an assortment of billboards and TV ads for the „Shot on iPhone 6“ ad campaign Apple ran to promote its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have begun receiving a set of special coffee table photo books that include their artwork.

Cult of Mac spoke to photographer Brendan Ó Sé, one of the lucky few to receive one of the books after having his photo featured as part of the campaign. He said the cloth-covered high-quality books came as a surprise and were even shipped with a set of white gloves for viewing.

„It was totally out of the blue,“ photographer Brendan Ó Sé, of Cork, Ireland, told Cult of Mac. „Naturally, I looked for my own photo, but seeing those of the friends I’ve made over this campaign added to the surprise and thrill.“

One of the books, „The Photographs“ includes the photos that were used in the ad campaign, while the other, „The Gallery,“ features shots of the photographs on billboards around the world. With the billboards now largely replaced with new content for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the photo books serve as a memento for those who had their iPhone 6 images included in the campaign.

Ó Sé’s photograph was taken in Berlin, but the ads that went up around the world featured a wide assortment of images from places like United States, Canada, Japan, Iceland, South Korea, China, Scotland, Indonesia, Thailand and New Zealand. In total, more than 77 photographers across 70 cities and 40 countries were featured.

‘Audio Books’ App Updated With CarPlay Support and Refreshed Interface [iOS Blog]

The iOS app for Audiobooks.com today received an update to overhaul the browsing experience, dedicated audio player, and even allow full integration with CarPlay „and select in-car infotainment systems“, to allow its users to listen to audiobooks while driving.

The company didn’t release much information on the update outside of the release notes, so there isn’t any word yet on how easy and fluid the experience is when pairing with CarPlay. It does, however, appear to be the first dedicated audiobook app to announce compatibility with Apple’s CarPlay system.

Elsewhere in the update, Audiobooks.com introduced a more „minimalist look and feel“ to the app, tweaked the controls and experience of the audio player, and re-shuffled the settings page to make more critical information easier to navigate through. Considering the Audio Books app jumped from version 4.6 to 5.0.3, however, there were even more changes brought to the app alongside these.

What’s New in Version 5.0.3

-Fully updated user interface with a new minimalist look and feel
-Improved book browsing and general user experience for international users
-Full integration with CarPlay and select in-car infotainment systems
-Audio player updated to incorporate full functionality and controls without sub-menus
-Re-organized settings page displays critical account information more prominently
-Improved navigation throughout the app for a more intuitive user experience

The app touts itself as having over 60,000 audiobooks, with over 2,500 available to download for free. Following an initial free trial, the service works like any other paid monthly experience, with $14.95 a month buying users one free audiobook every 30 days. The company promises cross-platform continuation of audiobooks, meaning users can start a book on their phone, continue it on the ride home, and finish on their computer at night.

Those interested can download the free Audio Books by Audiobooks app [Direct Link] and get their first audiobook for free.
