For today's Quick Tip, we're going to discuss changing the "Display Zoom" options on the new iPhone models, including why you may not see your Home screen's orientation change on your 6 Plus or why you might be missing the extra keyboard functionality you were expecting. We'll help you learn it all!
There may be times when you want to hand your iPhone to someone to let them scan through some photos. But perhaps there's a photo mixed in that you don't want to be seen. iOS 8 introduces a way to hide the photo.
If you bought an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus only to find it doesn't connect to your AT&T MicroCell, you aren't alone. There's a fix for that, but it takes a few steps. Read on to learn how to get your iPhone 6 up and running with a MicroCell.
As part of the iOS 8 rollout, the iTunes App Store has seen a few updates. One of them is App Bundles, a new way to purchase multiple apps. Kelly talked to Denys Zhadanov of Readdle to get a behind-the-scenes look at those Bundles.
As much as I love Google's ability to find exactly what I want, I've grown concerned about the amount of data they collect from my searches. You've probably experienced that lovely phenomenon of casually searching for a product and then seeing ads for that same product all over the 'net. Luckily for those concerned about such things, there's DuckDuckGo, a search engine that makes privacy its number one concern. Even more luckily, Apple's added it to iOS 8's list of search providers.
Extensions are one of the new features in iOS 8, a way to add cross-app functionality to iOS. Kelly explains how to turn on the extensions available to Safari on iOS.
In iOS 7, Apple's native weather app had rather sparse information about the local conditions, and it was hard to find. iOS 8 fixes all that and includes a better presentation of sunrise, sunset, atmospheric pressure and more.
One of the cool new features in iOS 8 is the ability to double tap the Home button and bring up not only the running apps but also your favorite and recent contacts. John Martellaro explains why this feature is so convenient.
Sure, Apple lets you choose your own keyboard in iOS 8, but it doesn't mean they made it easy to see how. TMO Contributing Editor Chuck La Tournous guides you through installing a third-party keyboard on your iOS device, and gives you a suggestion on a free keyboard to take for a spin.
One of iOS 8's most talked about features is Interactive Notifications. Now when a notification banner or alert appears, a response can be sent off without leaving the current app or unlocking the device. This works right out of the box with Messages and soon with many other apps as developers push updates for iOS 8. How to take advantage of this new feature is fairly intuitive, however it took a bit of experimentation to fully understand how they work.
