Apple's Family Sharing in iOS 8 is something many users are eager to setup in order to finally deal with the issue of sharing purchased apps (and music and movies and more) with family members. Frustration has set in for some, however, when the setup process informs users that PayPal is not a valid payment option for family purchases. The good news is that you can set PayPal as an option after Family Sharing is setup, at least for now.
iOS 8 introduces Family Sharing, a feature that allows multiple members of the same family to share app purchases with one another using iCloud accounts. It's not entirely obvious how to link a separate purchases account to Family Sharing, but it is possible, and we'll show you how to do it.
A new version of iOS is supposed to make things better, but that isn't always what happens. Kelly points out some new and overlooked features that can help squeeze out more battery life.
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.
