Android 5.1 includes the ability to set a different dialer theme color for each SIM so you'll know which one you're using to place calls.

A Developer Has Gotten Android Wear To Work With An iPhone Without Jailbreaking

A developer has done the (almost) unthinkable: gotten an Android Wear watch to work with an Apple iPhone. More specifically, it's a Moto 360 and an iPhone 6. Maybe more surprising is that he did not need to jailbreak the iPhone to do it, even though his happens to be. It's not exactly clear how much he needed to modify the watch, but he's obviously loaded custom software onto it. Here's a proof-of-concept video:

If you don't like videos, it shows a text message rolling in on the iPhone and an alert subsequently popping up on the Moto 360.

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] Clearer Instructions And Less Hassle In The Screen Pinning Interface And Settings

We're back — and by we, I mean our best bro in the world, Ramit Suri — with another Android 5.1 interface change. This one is all about the screen pinning feature that was introduced with Android 5.0, which receives a small but useful facelift and an interesting change to its settings.

Screen pinning in Android 5.0

First of all, the above screenshots show how pinning works right now in Android 5.0. The settings screen only has one toggle to enable the feature with a detailed explanation of what it is and how to trigger it. When you pin an app, you get a dialogue explaining what you've done and how to unpin it later.

Let's Take A Look At All Of The Galaxy S6 Teasers Samsung Has Published Thus Far

Samsung loves hype, and it's that time of year for a flagship launch. We don't always report on teasers, because they so often don't give us much information. Still, we can put the many teasers for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S6 together and get something worthwhile out of it.

Camera

Samsung has given several signals that they are going to be very proud of the camera in the S6. A leak from several months ago suggested the shooter on the back of the S6 would be either 16MP or 20MP, they weren't sure.

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] Super Subtle: Swipe Once To Close The Quick Settings Panel And Unlock Your Device From The Lockscreen

In case you haven't noticed, we love tiny details that make our everyday lives as Android users better. (And really, in case you didn't notice that, I'll show you the door — it's that X button next to the tab title up there in your browser.) Our friendly Android 5.1 tipster Ramit Suri loves them too, so much in fact that he noticed a teeny tiny detail on the lockscreen.

In Android 5.0, if you open the Quick Settings panel (henceforth referred to as QS) from the lockscreen, you would have to swipe the QS closed, then swipe again to unlock.

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] You Can Now Swipe Up To Dismiss Heads Up Notifications Instead Of Getting Rid Of Them Permanently

This might be the best new Android 5.1 feature yet. Lollipop brought with it so-called heads up notifications, where the entire notification appears at the top of your screen momentarily when it first arrives. The problem was that you had only three options:

  • Wait until it goes away
  • Tap on it to open up the app notifying you
  • Swipe it away, making the notification disappear permanently

With this feature addition to Android 5.1, you can swipe up to get it out of your way without losing it entirely.

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] Auto-Rotate Quick Settings Animation Makes Its Return

Despite its appearance on Android One devices, we've had complete radio silence from Google about Android 5.1. Still, as long as it is in the wild, we're going to keep hearing about it. In this case, we have found out that the animation associated with toggling the auto-rotate feature has come back in 5.1 after disappearing in 5.0. Take a look.

This might not exactly change the way you use your Android phone or tablet, but it's nice.
