iOS 9 is here! Whoo-hoo! To celebrate, we've got a Quick Tip about one of the new features of Siri: creating reminders based on what you're looking at on your screen. With this, you can have your device remind you about webpages, emails, locations, messages, and so on. It's pretty much the bee's knees.
watchOS 2.0 promises to make our Apple Watches even cooler and more useful. That's great, assuming you can figure out how to get it installed. There isn't an updater utility on Apple Watch, but it isn't difficult to install. Read on to learn how.
There are a few special features within iOS 9 that are specifically for use on your iPad, and in today's Quick Tip, we're going to go over one of our favorites. If you place two fingers on your screen, you can select text more easily and move your cursor around. Plus, there's a handy new set of shortcuts to use when you need to, say, copy or format text. Neat!
This El Capitan Quick Tip is about one of the niftiest new Spotlight features: Finding videos on the Internet without having to open your browser first. Melissa Holt will cover that new ability (and how you'll turn it off if you hate it!).
We're getting ready for Apple's big event next week, but in the meantime, Melissa Holt's got a brand-new iOS 9 trick for us! In this Quick Tip, she's going to discuss her very favorite new feature, which is the ability to share voicemails with other people and save 'em out into other apps.
From time to time, an app may lock up with a spinning beachball of death. Because you have no control of the cursor to activate a Force Quit or launch Activity Monitor, it's necessary to invoke a keyboard command. John delves, lightly, into a handy trick.
Melissa Holt's got another El Capitan trick for us, and this one's a doozy. You know how you can swipe on a message within iOS to trash it, mark it as read, and so on? Well, the beta version of El Cap offers that feature too! We'll discuss just how you'll do it (and what customization options you have) in today's Quick Tip.
Another piping-hot El Capitan tip, coming right up! Today Melissa Holt's talking about how we can "pin" sites to the Safari toolbar, which makes accessing favorite webpages faster. These pinned tabs even keep themselves updated in the background! That's the niftiness available in today's Quick Tip.
The beta of iOS 9 is just a goldmine of fun new stuff to mess around with, but in this Quick Tip, we're going to go over something serious: an easy new way to improve the security of your device without much inconvenience. Setting up a six-digit passcode and thwarting thieves is what Melissa Holt's got for us today.
There's nothing more boring than black text on a white background when listening to music. iTunes 12 allows you to turn on colored backgrounds for open albums, movies and playlists. Unfortunately, the color chosen isn't up to you.
