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||[4m 14s]|
|Reviewing iCloud Storage & Backup||[4m]|
|Documents in the Cloud||[2m 4s]|
|Buy More Storage||[39s]|
|Wrap Up||[1m 26s]|
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.
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!
Continuing on with our indepth look at iOS 7, we turn our attention to the applications supplied with iOS 7.
All have been enhanced but none more so than Mobile Safari.
Mobile Safari has a slew of brand new features, in particular, the iPhone and iPod touch version which has been re-engineered to take advantage of the smaller screen.
This tutorial takes you through all of the new features of Mobile Safari.
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, iOS7 has now been released and is available to download. You may have already upgraded to iOS7 and be scratching your head as to what has changed, what has moved and why does it all look so different!
This first look at iOS7 takes you through some of the fundamental changes in the OS and introduces you to some minor and major changes.
The fifth and final iOS6 episode!
Testament to the number of new features in iOS6, it's taken a lot longer to cover the major features than I appreciated.
This final segment covers the changes in the App Store, FaceBook and Twitter Integration and a look at the new "Guided Access" accessibility features. In addition, I take a look at the new "Do Not Disturb" feature for iPhone and iPad, as well as exploring the new iPhone specific features - Smart Reminders and Passbook.
Continuing with our coverage of iOS6, this episode explores the new Shared Photo Streams.
Packed with over 200 features, iOS6 improves and extends the functionality of your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and is available as a free download.
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.
