    Apple Watch - Part 1 - Introduction

    The Apple Watch is here! Well so says Apple's web site, but it's not here for everyone.

    Regardless, I was able to order as soon as they were released and thankfully, I was one of the lucky ones to receive the Apple Watch on launch day. The least I could do was to create an Introduction to Apple Watch tutorial whilst I get to grips with the device.

    In this introductory show, I take a look at basics of operating the Apple Watch and start to explore some of its features. The Apple Watch and the corresponding App on the iPhone are remarkably expansive in the number of features, especially with it being a version 1 product. It may take a while to do it justice!

    Twitter for iOS

    Twitter... you either love it or hate it! I'm strictly in the "love it" camp, but have been disappointed by the lack of updates to my favourite Twitter app - Tweetbot for iPad.

    In case you feel like a change, here's an overview of some of the new features in the Twitter for iOS app.

    I'll be covering iOS 8 extensively over the next month or so, as well as looking at iOS 8 impacts and influences the top third party apps.

    There will be lots of short snappy looks at iOS 8 functionality all over the internet, but that's not how we roll here at ScreenCastsOnline. There will be no knee jerk reaction or rush to flood you with superficial or lightweight views of such an important topic. Each future episode will look in depth at the various aspects of iOS 8 and ultimately how it will impact with OS X Yosemite.

    That being said, I couldn't resist giving you a little teaser at some of the new features of iOS 8 in this special launch episode.

    Just to reinforce one of the messages in the episode, if you currently use iCloud for document storage or iCloud syncing between your iOS devices and your Mac, DO NOT OPT TO UPGRADE TO ICLOUD DRIVE! Your documents will be inaccessible from your Mac and iCloud syncing will break, at least until OS X Yosemite is out!

    The full tutorial covers:

    • Considerations Before Upgrading
    • Backup Your Device
    • OTA Upgrade
