In iOS 7's Control Center, Apple essentially took the old pop-up music controls and added heaps of extra functionality, and it’s a very welcome change. One great feature of the old-style pop-up music controls was the button that would take you to whichever app was playing audio. However, in Control Center no such button appears even though the funtionality is still there. Michael Johnston shows us exactly where it's hidden away.

One of the many perks of upgrading to OS X 10.9 Mavericks is that it’s now much easier to make your user Library folder visible. Since Lion, Apple began hiding users’ Library folders, vut it seems as though Apple’s had a change of heart and now provides a much easier way to show that all too useful folder. Read on to learn how.
As Sandro Cuccia has written about in previous articles, Apple gives all Mac owners several amazing and free little applications and utilities built right in. Calculator is one such app. Sandro shows you the features included and how to use them, with a peek at the iOS 7 version.
Apple is launching the iPad Air on Friday, and unlike the iPhone 5s and 5c launch, Apple is offering in-store pickup for online orders. That means you can order through the online Apple Store website or through the iOS Apple Store apps and choose to pick it up rather than have it delivered.
One of the most radically changed apps in iOS 7 is Safari.

Michael Johnston rounded up some of the important changes and shows you how to make them work for you.
Are you frustrated with pasting physical addresses into your Mac’s Contacts app? Getting tired of having to edit the city and state info out to format things properly?

Mavericks may not have gone through a drastic UI transformation, but as things typically go with a new version of OS X, it does bring quite a few functional changes. One of those changes is that pressing the power button on your Mac now puts it to sleep instead of showing the Restart/Sleep/Shutdown dialog. You can, however, still get to that familiar screen, and Michael Johnston shows you how.
Along with the extremely noticeable UI changes in iOS 7 came a zillion (yes, a zillion) little changes that have been mostly well received. One change that didn't sit well with Michael Johnston, however, was showing nicknames in the Messages app. You can change that, and Michael is glad to show you how.
Within Mavericks, you can reply to Messages, FaceTime calls, and emails by using their pop-up notifications—and in some cases, you don't even have to leave whatever program you're currently working in. Melissa Holt is here to tell us all about it in this Quick Tip.
