Microsoft Authenticator testing account backup and recovery on iOS

The new toggle will let you easily recover your account credentials when switching to a new device.

Microsoft is bringing a new backup and recovery feature to its Authenticator app for iOS. The company announced yesterday that the feature, which will help you keep from getting locked out of accounts when switching devices, is now in beta testing and will be rolling out to everyone in the coming weeks (via Neowin).

The new setting will live as a toggle under the ”Backup” section of the Settings menu. Once toggled on, your account credentials will be encrypted with your personal Microsoft account and then the encrypted backup will be stored with your iCloud account. From there, you’ll be able to easily recover your account credentials on a new device by selecting ”Begin recovery” in Authenticator and signing in with the same Microsoft and iCloud accounts.

Nintendo Switch Jailbreak: Everything we know so far

If you’ve been itching to crack into your Switch, there are some things you can already do and others that are on the horizon.

Jailbreaking a device is a very bad idea if you don’t really know what you’re doing. It’s also a terrible idea if it’s the only device you own. That being said, if you’re willing to experiment, take the risk, and have a second device you can mess around with, jailbreaking could give you the ability to do some really fun and interesting things on your Nintendo Switch.

Since the Switch is a new console, so is the jailbreaking community for it. As time goes by, though, more and more talented people will unlock the Switch’s operating system and share with us everything we can do with the new tools.

Apple’s Everyone Can Create curriculum — in Action

Grade 7 and 8 students of Mazo de la Roche Public School test-drive Apple’s Everyone Can Create at the McMichael Art Collection.

At Apple’s March Education Event, the company introduced a companion to its Everyone Can Code curriculum — Everyone Can Create. With Everyone Can Code, Apple sought to help schools and students implement programs from primary through post-secondary all based on the reality that programming is a form of communication with which everyone needs to be familiar. Everyone Can Create follows up on that with applicable, skills-based learning for music, photography, and video — everything you can do with the tools now powered by code.

As much as Apple is often berated by It professionals in education for not providing rip-and-replace solutions identical to Microsoft of Google, and by budgeting offices for not making keyboard-equipped iPads as cheap as Chromebooks or Windows devices in school, what Apple is doing seems to be genuinely different.
