It's a "typical Apple touch." That's what developer Matt Gemmell said about something he noticed in Touch ID, and we agree. When you have your Touch ID setting open and have multiple fingerprints registered, touching the Home button will highlight the relevant profile. We'll show you how it works.
For a long time, in Safari, on either a Mac or iOS device, we had a URL field and a search field. We were able to use the search field to search for text on a page being viewed. Safari in iOS changes the methodology, and it's made even more confusing by Safari's Favorites Settings. Here's how it works now.
Apple's free 20GB of iCloud storage for former MobileMe subscribers ended with September, which means anyone that procrastinated on signing up for a paid account woke up on October 1 to find that they had been downgraded to a free 5GB account. If you don't need the extra storage, no problem. But if you do, it's fairly easy to pay for the annual storage upgrade.
In iOS Safari, at first, it's perhaps counter-intuitive how to move a folder of bookmarks. However, once you get the hang of it, it's easy. Here's how to do it.
Most of the time, we frame the photo on our iPhone and touch the shutter release button on the display. Or perhaps it's more convenient to use the volume control buttons on the side. However, there are several ways to trip the shutter without even touching your iPhone.
The slider toggle switches in iOS 7's settings don't include any words to indicate whether or not something is active -- like On or Off -- but they do turn green to show they're active. That's nice, but not all apps offer the green visual cue, and some people may have trouble with colors, too. That's an easy fix because Apple includes a setting that helps make it much easier to tell the difference between the On and Off state.
Mail Rules are an important part of automating much of the mindless and repetitive tasks associated with the daily onslaught of incoming email. They help maintain your sanity while letting you concentrate on real work. Sandro Cuccia shows you how to set up and use Mail Rules in Apple’s recently updated iCloud.com web mail.
iOS 7's Control Center feature is great because it gives you quick access to the system settings you're most likely to use. If you use any apps that also rely on the up-from-the-bottom-of-the-screen gesture, however, that can actually be a pain. Luckily Apple thought of that, and the fix is easy.
Having trouble figuring out the best way to use iOS 7's Calendar, especially on your iPhones? We've got you covered. In this article, we'll give you some suggestions on bringing back a bit of the functionality of iOS 6, including list view. Are you a little less crazy after finding out that it still exists? We know we are.
We tend to think of using FaceTime for a face-to-face video and audio call to a smiling face. But did you know that iOS 7 introduces the ability to make audio calls only? Here's how to do it.
