iOS 5 - Storage & Backup Description

This week is all about storage on your iOS device. With the advent of the new Retina Display on the new iPad, the issue of storage becomes critical for many people juggling Apps and Media on their iOS devices.

Apple have provided some useful tools and views to see just what is installed on your iOS device and how much space it is taking up.

This tutorial takes you through the different views, and demonstrates how to manage your storage.

I also take a look at iCloud backups and give you some background and guidance on how to optimise your usage.

This full tutorial includes sections on:

  • Reviewing Local Storage Usage
  • Reviewing iCloud Storage & Backup
  • Documents in the Cloud
  • Buy More Storage
Keyboard Shortcuts

    One of the items the show was "silent" on is the "other" capacity usage. This can be seen when you look at capacity usage for your iOS device on iTunes. The web has several posting on folks having issues with how large that category can get, but no one seems to have a solution to manage it. Any suggestions?

    iOS7 - Part 5 - Camera & Photos App

    Continuing with our coverage of iOS, it's time to take a look at the Camera and Photos App.

    The Camera app in iOS7 will function slightly differently based on the hardware capabilities of your iOS device. In this section, I take a look at the standard features across all iOS7 devices as well as taking a look at the iPhone 5s specific features of slo-mo and burst mode.

    The Photos app is hugely improved in iOS7 with some great new features. In this section, I take a look at all the new features of the app including my favourite, the very useful "Shared Streams" function which makes sharing photos a breeze with friends and family, even if they don't have an iOS device or iOS7.

    iOS7 - Part 4 - Mail, Messages & FaceTime Audio

    More iOS7 goodness this week!

    One of the most heavily utilised applications in iOS7 is the standard Mail application. Apple have enhanced Mail with new gestures and even more customisation of your Mailbox views. You can now configure Mail to expose your most used mailboxes, regardless of where they are in your mail folder hierarchy, or in which account. Search has been improved too.

    I also take a look at some changes to the Messages App, as well as a peek at the new FaceTime Audio feature - no longer does FaceTime mean just video!

    Introduction to iOS7 - Part 2

    Following on from last week, I take a further look at some of the new features in iOS 7.

    As well as the cosmetic changes, a lot has changed "under the hood" and I set out to expose some of the new configuration settings. iOS 7 relies more heavily on gestures than previous versions, but some of the gestures aren't so obvious. So in the second segment of the show, I take a look at some hidden gestures in some of the standard iOS apps, as well as giving you a few pointers on some inconsistencies.

    Finally I take a look at how AirDrop works between iOS devices when sharing Photos, Safari Links and Contacts - providing you have a compatible iOS device.

    Finally I take a look at how AirDrop works between iOS devices when sharing Photos, Safari Links and Contacts - providing you have a compatible iOS device. One thing to point out that I don't cover in the show is that you do need an iCloud account for AirDrop to work. Suprisingly, AirDrop will not function between devices logged into iCloud with the same account - so if you have a personal iPhone and a personal iPad, AirDrop won't work between them if they both use the same iCloud account. A very strange state of affairs! But still, it's great for sharing files and more with friends, family and colleagues.

    The full tutorial covers:

    • Configuration Settings
    • iOS7 Gestures
    • AirDrop

    This fourth of a multipart series, explores the new Shared Photo Streams service, now built into iOS6 as well as the Mac and Apple TV.

    With further deep integration with iCloud, iOS6 adds the new feature of Shared Photo Streams to share selected photos with friends and family, directly from your iOS device. Simple to setup, Shared Photo Streams goes some way to replace the Photo Gallery feature removed with Mobile Me. Once you've shared your Photos, you can add and receive comments back, as well as receive notifications. It's really easy to add additional photos to your Photo Stream.

    Once subscribed to a Shared Photo Stream you can view the shared photos via your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, as well as your Mac and Apple TV. You can even view them in a web view.

    This full tutorial includes sections on:

    • Shared Photo Streams
    • Accepting an Invitation
    • Adding Likes & Comments
    • Viewing on iPhone 5
    • Editing the Shared Photo Stream
    • Keeping Copies
