Apple Event 9/15

Episode 1728

This Tuesday at 10am PDT, Apple will be streaming an event called "Time Flies," and Leo says it hints at a new, sixth-generation Apple Watch. Leo wonders though, just how much more you can do with a smartwatch. And he also thinks that maybe it'll be the release of a new version of watchOS 7. Other new features will include an expanded sleep feature and more software additions. But he also thinks there really isn't much more you can do hardware-wise. We are in essence at peak watch.

How can I get my email app to notify me of new email?

Gmail

Episode 1476

Gary from Ontario, CA

Gary's wife is having issues getting push notifications for her email. Leo says she'll need to enable it in her Gmail account. She could also just turn on "fetch," which is a pull-oriented option. Leo says that using pull or fetch as her primary way will save battery life as it will just get the email whenever she opens the app.

The chatroom says that this is now a paid feature of Gmail Pro. Push notifications are no longer free with a basic Gmail account.
