Apple’s iOS 14 Release Time On Sept. 16 Reportedly Depends On Where You Live

Published

on

Apple has been giving fans something to cheer about amidst reports of a delayed iPhone release this fall. The company held a fall event on Tuesday, Sept. 15, and in addition to announcing new Apple Watches and iPads, Apple CEO Tim Cook shared the good news that iOS 14 is available as of Sept. 16. If you woke up ready to download the update, you might be out of luck, because Apple’s iOS 14 release time will reportedly vary depending on where you live.

The tech giant snuck in the news on Tuesday during the event which was focused largely on the Apple Watch Series 6, the Apple Watch SE, the eighth generation iPad, and the latest update to the iPad Air. It seems since all those new devices require software updates of their own, Apple also threw in the iOS 14 release. According to MacRumors, iOS updates usually come to devices around 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, so if you’re on the East Coast, you might have to wait awhile to see it. Apple Hub, an unaffiliated Apple news Twitter account, also shared the news of a 10 a.m. PT release. Elite Daily reached out to Apple to confirm the release time, but did not hear back at the the time of publication.

Given all the new features coming with iOS 14, it might be difficult to have the patience to wait for it, and if you were one of the people who downloaded the beta version of iOS 14 this summer, you may not have to wait as long as those who didn’t. There’s no official word from Apple that this is the case, but it appears some users on Twitter who likely had the beta version are seeing the update earlier than the reportedly scheduled 10 a.m. PT release time on Sept. 16.

As you wait for the update to be available on your iPhone, you can pass the time by checking out all the cool, new features coming with it. Apple first announced iOS 14 at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 22, and iOS 14 comes with quite a few upgrades. One of the cooler features is the ability to pin important conversations in Messages, so the people you most often message with will be right at the top of the screen when you open the app. You can also update your group messages with photos, and have a more streamlined convo using the new inline replies and group mentions.

Apple

The iOS 14 update will be available for the seventh generation iPod Touch, the first and second generation iPhone SE, and the iPhone 6S, as well as iPhone 7 and all later models.

A Whiskey Writer Names The Independent American Whiskeys He Loves Best

Published

on

By

Christopher Osburn has spent the past fifteen years in search of “the best” — or at least his very favorite — sips of whisk(e)y on earth. In the process, he’s enjoyed more whisk(e)y drams than his doctor would dare feel comfortable with, traveled to over 20 countries testing local spirits, and visited more than fifty distilleries worldwide.


Sure, you can spend the rest of your life drinking whiskeys made by large brands and end up completely happy with your choices. We’re talking about the likes of Jim Beam, Jack Daniels, Jameson, and Suntory (along with some of the slightly smaller brands). These behemoths all make enough whiskeys to keep your palate interested and engaged for decades to come.

But if you have more of an adventurous spirit or root for the underdog and you want to sip on something tuly unique, there are countless brands out there that don’t have parent companies or hedge fund investors. True independents — focused on perfecting their specific version of the grain-to-glass experience.

Below you’ll find the independent American whiskey expressions that I love best.

Leopold Bro’s Maryland-Style Rye

ABV: 43%

Price: $48.99

The Story:

This is a seasonal release from Leopold Brothers and won’t be offered again until 2022. This pre-prohibition-style rye from the Colorado-based distillery is aged for two years in new charred American oak casks. Unlike its Pennsylvania-style counterpart with its rich oak and big notes of peppery spice, Maryland-style rye is much more mellow and fruit-driven.

This offering lives up its name with smooth, easy drinkability.

Tasting Notes:

There’s a lot going on with this whiskey as you nose it. The first aromas that fill your nostrils are dried orange peel, cinnamon, and sweet cream. The first sip brings forth flavors of butterscotch, caramelized sugar, sweet vanilla, and just a hint of peppery spice. The finish is long, warming, and filled with toffee, cocoa, and a final flourish of white pepper.

Bottom Line:

If you can get your hands on a bottle of this seasonal release, make it last. Sip it slowly with a few ice cubes on a chilly fall evening.

Dry Fly Straight Washington Wheat Whiskey

ABV: 45%

Price: $45.99

The Story:

In recent years, wheat whiskey has become fairly popular. One of the best is Dry Fly Washington Wheat. Made from 100% soft white wheat, it’s distilled two times before aging for 3 plus years in charred new American oak barrels.

The result is a very well–rounded, easy-drinking whiskey.

Tasting Notes:

This whiskey deserves a nosing before sampling. Unlike a high-rye whiskey, the wheat gives the aromas of sweet cereal, charred oak, and caramel. The first sip yields sweet cream, sticky toffee, cooking spices, and honey. The finish is long, warming, and dry — with hints of toasted oak and just a whisper of pepper at the very end.

Bottom Line:

The reason I picked this whiskey is that it feels effortlessly velvety and smooth. There’s no reason to mix this highly drinkable whiskey into a cocktail.

Kings County Peated Bourbon

ABV: 45%

Price: $44.99

The Story:

If you’re a fan of Scotch, you’re probably at least aware of the peat-smoked whiskies, specifically those from distilleries located on the island of Islay. But you might not know that it isn’t just Scotch that’s peat-smoked. One of the best American offerings comes from Kings County. This Peated Bourbon is made using peat-smoked malted barley. The result is a highly complex whiskey with sweetness from corn and smoke from peat.

Tasting Notes:

Your first whiff of this whiskey will transport you to Scotland — making you think of the likes of Ardbeg and Bruichladdich. But behind the smoke, there’s also sweet caramel and rich vanilla. The first sip is a mixture of soothing smoke, butterscotch, and dried fruits. The finish is long, warming, and filled with more campfire smoke paired with sweet cream.

Bottom Line:

If you get your hands on a bottle of this special small-batch bourbon, you should enjoy it with a blanket on your lap in front of a bonfire on a cold fall night.

Stranahan’s Diamond Peak Colorado Whiskey

ABV: 47%

Price: $79.99

The Story:

Part of the appeal of Stranahan’s Diamond Peak is the fact that from batch to batch, the flavors will be subtly different. Made from 100% Colorado barley and water and aged in charred, new American oak casks for four years, Diamond Peak also comes with its own shot glass. (The bottle ingeniously comes with a black metal 3-ounce cap — a clever little topper for a fantastic bottle.)

Tasting Notes:

Your first sniff will deliver a ton of flavor notes. First comes hints of cinnamon and candied pecans before leading into sweet cream and butterscotch. The first sip drops notes of toasted oak, rich caramel, spicy chocolate, and brown sugar. The finish is long, warming, and full of velvety sweetness and fall spices.

Bottom Line:

Take a hike and bring a bottle with you. As soon you reach a lookout, take a seat, crack open the bottle and take a sip while you sit back and enjoy the view.

Dad’s Hat Pennsylvania Straight Rye

ABV: 47.5%

Price: $40.99

The Story:

It might seem like rye has only become popular in the last few years, but before prohibition, it was arguably the most popular whiskey. Of the pre-prohibition ryes, there were two very popular styles: Pennsylvania and Maryland. This one is a Pennsylvania rye. That means this rye, made from local grain and aged for at least four years, is spicier than its counterpart.

Tasting Notes:

Like all rye whiskeys, this one deserves a nice nosing before taking a sip. If you do, you’ll be met with subtle spice, brown sugar, and creamy vanilla. The first sip will bring you white pepper, Christmas spices, rich caramel, dried cherries, and delicate floral notes. The finish is long, rich, and full of a pleasing kick of black pepper and butterscotch.

Bottom Line:

Unlike dad’s actual hat, you shouldn’t leave this whiskey laying around just anywhere. It’s a lovely fall dram and a fun one to share and taste with rye whiskey newbies.

Iron Smoke Straight Bourbon

ABV: 40%

Price: $45.99

The Story:

It’s likely that you’ve never heard of Iron Smoke. This small-batch bourbon is made using locally sourced grains in limited batches. At first glance, it looks like well-made whiskey using a similar recipe to many other well-made whiskeys. The difference is Iron Smoke’s version is a four-grain bourbon with applewood smoked wheat. The result is a subtly smoky, sweet bourbon you’ll want to sip all autumn long.

Tasting Notes:

The first aromas you’ll be met with when nosing this bourbon are sweet corn, rich caramel, and velvety vanilla. The first sip teases flavors of toasted marshmallow, subtle bonfire smoke, sweet cream, and brown sugar. The finish is long, dry, warming, and filled with a pleasing kiss of applewood smoke that will make you wish you had a plate of ribs to pair the dram with.

Bottom Line:

This truly unique expression might be the perfect bridge for peaty Scotch fans to get into the world of American bourbon. Enjoy it on the rocks and sip it slowly.

Naadei d’OD Chez Nous aurait bel et bien fréquenté l’un des joueurs des Canadiens de Montréal!

Published

By

Naadei, l’une de nos candidates préférées d’OD Chez Nous fait déjà beaucoup jaser depuis son arrivée dans l’aventure, et ce, depuis le tout début lors du dévoilement des vidéos de présentation des candidats, alors qu’elle était la seule à ne pas mentionner son âge — selon les rumeurs et sa biographie sur HipHop Spirit, elle serait âgée de 34 ans.

Aujourd’hui, c’est une autre rumeur qui aurait mis son nom sur toutes les lèvres celle mentionnant qu’elle aurait fréquenté l’un des anciens joueurs des Canadiens de Montréal, PK Subban.

Et certaines traces de leur relation restent à ce jour visibles sur les réseaux sociaux.

 

Le 5 février 2013, Subban a partagé une vidéo de Naadei et Wyclef Jean en écrivant: « Check out this new video by the lovely #Naadei #YouGoGirl » (Allez voir cette nouvelle vidéo par l’adorable #Naadei). Le qualificatif d’« adorable » laisse croire que l’ex Canadien avait à ce moment des sentiments plutôt affectueux envers la jeune femme.

 

En 2013 également, Naadei a aussi tweeté à propos de Subban, en disant: « Hold on… @PKSubban1 is shooting a CHOCOLATE commercial? And it’s NOT #MrBigs?? What’s going on here!?! » (Attendez… @PKSubban1 est en train de tourner une publicité de CHOCOLAT? Et ce n’est PAS #MrBigs!? Qu’est-ce qui se passe!?!), publication que Subban a ensuite retweeté.

 

Toutefois, la romance semble s’être dissipée peu après, au printemps, puisque le 8 avril 2013, Naadei a publié une photo de sa petite soeur dans son lit, qui tient un toutou de PK Subban, avec en descriptions: « So my Ex is sleeping with my sister now. Great.» (Donc mon ex dort avec ma soeur maintenant. Super.)

Il ne semblerait pas que les choses se soient terminées en mauvais termes par contre, puisque Subban est toujours abonné au compte Instagram personnel de Naadei (@naadeiliones).
