iOS 13

Second best to getting a new phone is getting a new version of the operating system.  The OS upgrade provides the device with new capabilities, and sometimes a new look.  iOS version 13 dropped yesterday for iPhone users, a free upgrade for people with the iPhone SE, iPhone 6, and higher, and iPod touch (7th generation).  Apple promises a new dark mode they say gives the phone a new look, plus numerous features for editing and maintaining photos, new sharing options, improved security, signing into Web sites with your Apple ID, a completely revamped Maps app, improvements to Siri including a more natural sounding voice and search shortcuts, more Memoji options, typing by dragging your finger from key to key, a redesigned CarPlay, and faster performance.

As always, the free upgrade is downloaded and installed by going to General -> Software Update in the iPhone Settings app.  Depending on the speed of your Internet connection it will take a while.  On my pretty fast connection and an iPhone XR it took about 8 minutes to download and another 11 minutes to prepare and 7 minutes to install the update.  That came to 26 minutes on a fast phone with a fast wifi connection.  So you don't want to upgrade your phone when you need it.  Wait until you're watching TV or reading a book or something you can do for a long time away from your phone.

Williamsville, NY - Tops Friendly Markets announced Monday its registration for the 2019 Clean Up the World (CUTW) program. Established in 1993, CUTW is one of the largest community-based environmental programs in the world, uniting community groups, schools, businesses, and local governments to carry out activities that address local environmental issues. The organization inspired billions of people across all continents to tread lightly, clean up, and conserve the planet in addition to combating waste and plastic pollution.

In order to fulfill its commitment to the program Tops is hosting a Clean Up the World Weekend September 20-22, 2019 at all 159 of its stores across its three state imprint. Over the course of the three days, 10,000 reusable bags made of 100% recyclable materials will randomly be given away, encouraging shoppers to use recycled bags over plastic. This is especially pertinent in New York State where a plastic bag ban is currently in legislation and set to go into effect in March 2020. Additionally shoppers will learn more about specific earth friendly brands available at Tops including Full Circle, Mrs. Meyers, Method, Seventh Generation and more as they make their own personal choices to make a difference in their own carbon footprint. Lastly, Tops associates will be participating in environmental clean ups across the communities in which it serves. From river and beach clean ups to beautifying trails and parks, Tops is encouraging its associates to make a difference.
