It’s that time of year when Apple releases new devices and software updates. You’ve probably seen this mentioned in the news quite a bit over the past couple of weeks. Now that the dust has settled (a little), I thought I’d give a quick overview of what’s new and help to answer that all-Important question: should you get a new device.
I’ve written several times about how our iPhones have become an indispensable part of our lives. When emergencies and natural disasters are looming, they become even more important as a way to get information, stay in touch with loved-ones, and even summon help if needed.
I have many family members that live in Florida and I’m worried about them as hurricane Dorian approaches. Here are some tips that will hopefully help them, and others, get the most out of their iPhones during the storm.
It can be challenging to sort through all of our email to find the truly important ones. Junk mail, scams, phishing attempts, and more all contribute to overloaded inboxes. Luckily there are some easy ways to find and keep track of important emails.
I often use my iPhone to look things up on the web while I’m out and about. If I want to pick up where I left off later using my iPad, I don’t have to remember how to get back to that page. There is a very simple way to jump right to it.
Many of you probably use your iPhone to keep track of shopping lists. It makes it easy to jot things down that you want to remember to buy, and you always have your phone with you. Wouldn’t it be nice if several people could add items to the same list so you know that you’re getting everything needed at the store? Luckily, that’s pretty easy to do with the iPhone.
I was recently asked to write a guest post by a blogger that had visited this site and found it helpful. Hugh Roberts is a blogger, writer, and photographer and he has a great blog. You can visit his site here.
This is the first time I’ve been asked to write guest post and was quite excited to do it. The article I wrote shows how to use tabs in Safari to keep several web pages open at once, and includes a nice tip for how to re-open a tab that has been accidentally closed.
You can read the post here. I hope you find it useful, and I hope you enjoy Hugh’s blog.
We recently moved into a new home and once all the furniture was placed and the boxes unpacked, we started to hang pictures. The problem was that the garage was still a mess and we couldn’t find our level. The solution? The iPhone, of course!
Have you ever seen something on the web or in an app that you don’t have time to read at that moment, but want to remember to read later? Safari has a great feature called Reading List that keeps track of those pages for you. And best of all, you can read those saved articles even when you’re offline.
I’ve written previously that I do a lot of reading on my iPhone and iPad. Unfortunately, reading a web page is not always a great experience. Many web pages are filled with things not related to what I’m trying to read: ads, links to other sites, comments, social media, and more. Safari has a great way to focus on just the main content: Reader View.
