IOS 14.3 Public Beta 2 Makes It Even Easier To Customize Your Home Screen

iOS 14.3 Public Beta 2 is now available for all Apple Beta Program participants and brings with it a few new surprises, including one that’s going to be quite welcome for all you home screen modders.  

What’s New?

The first thing that just about anyone under the age of 20 did when they installed iOS 14 was start customizing their home screens via Shortcuts. The problem? Customized app icons launch the Shortcuts app before it takes you to the app. Not an ideal setup. 

That behavior changes in iOS 14.3 Public Beta 2. Now, when you click a customized icon, you’re taken right to the app and the Shortcuts app announces itself via a banner at the top of the screen. It’s a much more elegant process and one that dedicated customizers will welcome. 

Other tidbits (culled from the initial beta release) include:

T-Mobile’s TVision Home IPTV service is shutting down at the end of December

T-Mobile is shutting down TVision Home, its IPTV cable service that utilized technology from its 2017 acquisition of Layer3. The service will officially shut down on December 30th, 2020 at 3AM ET, according to an FAQ on the T-Mobile website.

TVision Home’s shutdown comes shortly after the November 1st launch of the company’s new live TV streaming service — which, confusingly, also uses the TVision brand. The new TVision works via an app that’s available across many platforms and over a $50 4K Android TV dongle that’s sold by T-Mobile — a far more accessible way to access content than the TVision Home, which required a more traditional set-top box. And while a TVision Home subscription cost $90 per month, the new TVision offers a number of more affordable bundles of channels, including one that’s just $10 per month.

If you’re currently a subscriber to the TVision Home cable service,

County health officials report that 157 people at the John Knox Village Care Center have tested positive for COVID-19, and the Kansas City Star reported 20 deaths from the virus occurred at the nursing home.

Seventeen of the deaths occurred this month and three people died last month, the facility’s vice president of health and community services told the newspaper.

“All these folks were somebody’s loved ones, someone’s parents, grandparents, and they really become part of our family as well,” Rodney McBride told the Star. “It’s really been heart wrenching. You just feel like you should have

Children not immune; Sen. Chuck Grassley tests positive

Pfizer and Moderna have both announced promising results in the phase 3 trials of their COVID-19 vaccines. Here’s how they differ.

Storyful

A “uniform approach” to the coronavirus pandemic is needed to replace the uneven response that has fueled a dangerous surge in hospitalizations and deaths across the nation, the top U.S. infectious disease expert said Tuesday.

“We need some fundamental public health measures that everyone should be adhering to, not a disjointed, ‘one state says one thing, the other state says another thing,’” Dr. Anthony Fauci said at a conference sponsored by The New York Times.

The Trump administration, however, has left the issue to states while encouraging them to keep businesses and schools open. Facing spiraling coronavirus numbers and with a contentious Election Day now in the rearview mirror, Republican governors have begun grudgingly lining up behind their Democratic colleagues in tightening restrictions aimed at taming the

Opinion | Seven governors: Americans need to stay home this Thanksgiving

For eight months, the covid-19 pandemic has devastated American families everywhere. To fight this virus, governors across the country have listened to medical experts and worked around the clock to protect our families, the brave men and women on the front lines, and our small-business owners. No matter the action we take, we understand that our fight against covid-19 will be more effective when we work together.

That is why we, a group of bipartisan governors, are joining forces today to urge families across our region, and Americans everywhere, to do their part to protect themselves and their loved ones from the spread of covid-19. When it comes to fighting this virus, we are all on the same team.

Right now, cases and hospitalizations are skyrocketing in the Midwest and across the country. As the weather gets colder and more people head inside, it will get worse. It is more

But forget about the test if you want to know whether you have COVID-19 before visiting family for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

The Lucira COVID-19 All-In-One Test Kit will be limited to patients at Sutter Health in Northern California and Cleveland Clinic Florida in Miami-Fort Lauderdale until next spring. And even then, you must have symptoms and a health provider’s referral to get the test.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Tuesday approved the first at-home COVID-19 test kit for emergency use.

The COVID-19 All-In-One Test Kit, made by biotech company Lucira Health, is the first nasal swab test that can be fully self-administered at home, and it provides results in 30 minutes or less, according to a statement from the government agency.

Once the patient has done the nasal swab, it is then stirred into a vial and placed in a test unit. Within minutes, lights indicate whether the individual is positive, negative, or needs to repeat the test.
