"Reachability" is Apple's term for how the screen slides down when you double-tap the Home button on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. While that feature can be useful if you're using your device one-handed, it can also be a pain in the tuckus if you're constantly invoking it without meaning to! In today's Quick Tip, we'll tell you how to disable it completely.
Occasionally, when one is under severe time pressure, many crucial things have to be done, say, just before a meeting or big event. While one could change faces on the Apple Watch and bring up the chronometer and a timer, there's a much faster and more convenient way. Siri comes to the rescue.
If you're getting frustrated with Siri's inability to understand your commands, then you might want to try resetting the service on your iOS device. Siri learns how to better interpret your voice the more you use it, but if that training has gotten messed up (by, say, your kids playing around with your phone), then that could cause problems. We'll tell you how to wipe Siri clean in today's Quick Tip.
Today we've got another Quick Tip for you about the Photos program, and in this one, we'll discuss how to use what's called Split View.

If you've ever tried to delete a single page within a Pages document, you may have been confused to find that you couldn't do so without removing additional pages (or maybe your whole document!). In this Quick Tip, we'll go over why this is happening and what you can do to get those stubborn pages out of there.
This morning my iPhone battery went from a full charge to completely dead in a little over four hours without me using it for anything at all. That's not at all what I expect from a smart phone that's doing little more than laying on my desk, so I wondered exactly what was eating all the juice in my iPhone's battery. Thanks to a tip TMO's own Melissa Holt wrote almost a year ago I was able to solve the mystery.
Today we're going to discuss how to fix an image with an off-kilter horizon. It's pretty simple to do, but if what you like are big, obvious buttons that say "Straighten," well, then, you're gonna miss iPhoto on this one. Deciphering…interesting…Apple design choices is what we're gonna do in today's Quick Tip.
