Date: 11th April 2017

Duration: 04:27

Show ref: SCOM0620

Apple have rolled out updates to all of its platforms across the board in the past few weeks. In this week's tip video, we focus on Night Shift on the Mac, now available in mac OS Sierra 10.12.4.

Night Shift was originally introduced in iOS and is a screen technology designed to make it easier to work with your Mac during the evening hours. It changes your Mac display to overlay a "Sepia" layer which can assist in making it easier on the eyes.

Night Shift isn't for everyone, but it's worth giving it a try.

More updates for macOS, iOS 10, watchOS 3 & tvOS.

iCloud Family Sharing is a great way to both reduce and manage the costs of buying Apps, Music, Videos and iBooks.

Up to six Family Members can pool their current purchases and share access with each other. With the iCloud Family Sharing "Organiser" in place, all purchases can be made with a single credit card, and if you have kids, you can authorise all requested purchase with "Ask To Buy".

With the soon to be launched MUSIC App, you’ll also be able to get a Family membership plan - six individual accounts for just $14.99.

You may have been putting it off, but now might be a good time to checkout iCloud Family Sharing.
