There's a very quick way to paste and search the Web with text you've copied to the clipboard on your iOS 9 device, all using one little nifty, handy menu option. We've got the details here in today's Quick Tip.
Twitter is copying Facebook again, this time by showing tweets based on what it thinks you want to see instead of chronologically. For some people that's awesome, and for others? Not so much. If that doesn't sound like what you want, it's easy to turn off from the Twitter website.
Some folks have been getting a weird error where they can't play a song on Apple Music because they aren't logged in, even though they are logged in. There's a hidden cache that must be deleted by hand to fix this, and Bryan Chaffin walks us through it.
Been taking lots of pictures with your iPhone 6s or 6s Plus? Did you forget to turn off Live Photos and now want to edit the feature out of the images you've taken? Well, within Photos on the Mac, you can do just that, and it'll even work if you've selected a bucketload of pictures all at once. Melissa Holt's gonna tell us how in today's Quick Tip.
This Quick Tip is about something that Apple removed from El Capitan's version of Mail (the gear icon that was at the bottom-left) and how you can replicate its "Get Account Info" functionality to see the sizes of your mailboxes again. Apple sometimes giveth and then taketh away, but at least in this case, we can still "taketh" the feature back!
Watch retailer Watches2U put together an infographic for spotting fake Apple Watches, which we've included below. It's a handy-dandy guide, especially for those who don't eat, breathe, and sleep Apple products. Check it out in the full story.
If you're one of those people who has Siri calling you "your highness" or "Captain Magnificent" rather than your first name, then boy, are you going to love this tip. A Reddit user found a way to bleep out Siri, so you can have Apple's voice assistant call you "you massive stinking pile of BEEP" if you want. We accept no responsibility for the repercussions of having your boss hear your new nickname, though.
Modern web browsers can save usernames and passwords for online logins. Most of them also support "auto-fill" for data like contacts or credit cards. But what do you do if you regularly have to fill out complex online forms that contain arbitrary text fields, menus, and checkboxes? Your Password manager, like 1Password, can handle it for you.
Today's Quick Tip is not about Parental Controls, exactly, but you could use it in conjunction with that feature if you need to go a step farther in keeping your kid safe online. With Remote Management, you can see what your child is doing from the comfort of your own computer screen, and if you set it up properly, he'll never even know that you're watching. The approach may be a bit draconian, but we guess sometimes you've gotta come down hard.
We're sorry, kids.
Updating apps on our iPhones and iPads should be an easy and simple process, and it usually is. When an app gets stuck part way through installing, however, it's frustrating because you're trapped in an endless loop and trying to reinstall typically doesn't help, plus doing the tap-and-hold trick to delete the app doesn't work, either. There is a fix, although it certainly isn't obvious.
