iOS 8.3 Maps Update Allows Business Owners to Claim POI Listings [iOS Blog]

With the introduction of iOS 8.3 on Apple’s mobile devices yesterday, business owners now have the opportunity to claim a point of interest in Apple Maps as their own, thanks to a few additions to the Report a Problem prompt that can be found on each point of interest in Maps (via AppleMapsMarketing).

Located at the bottommost section of a business’ Map page, the Report a Problem button leads business owners to another section that, along with basic troubleshooting, allows them to claim their business for their own. Following a redirection to Apple Maps Connect and a series of questions, Apple reviews the user’s answers to confirm ownership, eventually allowing business owners control over their Map’s point of interest and letting them “manage its information.”

Apple has been giving Maps heavy attention lately, in attempts to steer away from the initial backlash against the app, with the company allowing TripAdvisor and Booking.com reviews to join the service alongside the long-instated Yelp reviews. Apple even introduced a small but noteworthy feature back in February when it began animating popular landmarks within the Maps app itself. Aside from Maps’ new features, iOS 8.3 brought about a bunch of new bug fixes and updates, from small tweaks to Passbook and Photos to the introduction of entirely new emojis.

Soundcore refreshes the Q series headphones with the new Life Q30

Soundcore may not be the household name of Beats or Sony…yet. However, the audio brand from Anker has been making quality devices for a few years now. The company is adding to that stable of music headphones with the new Life Q30 Bluetooth headphones.While truly wireless earbuds are all the rage these days the Life Q lineup of “traditional” over-ear headphones could be considered the top tier that Anker has to offer. The new Soundcore LIfe Q30 builds on the great Q20 from last year with Active Noise Cancellation and a compelling spec sheet.ANC includedThe active noise cancellation uses multiple microphones to help filter up to 95% of outside noise while only giving you the audio playback in the headphones. There’s also a transparency mode that adjusts the filter process to allow you more input from the outside environment.Custom tuningWhen you do want to rock out to nothing but tunes, you’ll be hit with 40mm silk drivers for a robust sound. Custom tuning is onboard as well. This offers different EQ and sound profiles to be set from the Soundcore mobile app on both iOS and Android.All-day batteryPair all that with a huge power capacity, and the Life Q30 is a great addition to the Soundcore portfolio. Anker has the battery life rated at up to 40 hours of total playback per charge while using ANC. Turn off noise cancellation and it estimates an additional 20 hours. Yes, 60 hours total.Of course, we’ll need to confirm this in real-world usage, but the Life Q20 has us comfortable that these projections are pretty close to actual results.Available soonAnker doesn’t have a set date of availability past “early November” in the US. It does have a concrete price tag of $79.99 from the Soundcore Amazon storefront.
