Apple announced the latest software updates for iPhone and iPad at their annual developer conference this week. Here's a look at the new features pilots will be most interested in and why they matter.
Sporty’s has introduced the Stratus, a portable weather receiver specifically made for the iPad. It combines an ADS-B and GPS receiver into a single unit that wirelessly streams NEXRAD radar, text weather, TFRs and aircraft position to the popular ForeFlight Mobile app for iOS devices.
The annual Sporty's Pilot Shop Fly-in is this Saturday, May 18, at the Clermont County Airport (I69). Three seminars will cover the iPad, from Sporty's, Garmin and ForeFlight.
One year after announcing an ambitious plan to connect iPads to panel avionics, Aspen Avionics has received STC approval for Connected Pilot, the first in their planned line of Connected Panel products. The product is a complete two-way solution, including both hardware and software.
Apple recently released the next major software update for iPhone and iPad alongside the launch of the new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. The software took a split this year – the iOS 13 update is designed exclusively for iPhone, and then there is a separate iOS update available specifically for iPad, called iPadOS. As with any iOS release, we recommend holding off on updating until your app or accessory developer has had time to fully test compatibility with the new version.
