Tip - Screenshots on iOS

Taking screenshots on iOS devices is a snap in iOS 11. There are also some handy annotation features to mark up your screenshots and share them with people. You can also discard screenshots easily if you don't want to keep them indefinitely.

If you do wish to save them, the Photos app stores them in a special Screenshots album for easy retrieval. You can even take screenshots from Apple Watch and they sync automatically to your iPhone and iPad via the iCloud Photo Library, and can also be marked up or shared via the Photos app.

I cover all this and more in this week's tip.

Despite the best intentions, it can be really hard to hold your iPhone (or iPad) still when taking photos. Invariably, there is some stretching involved in reaching for the on-screen shutter button or volume controls.

In this week's tip I show you how to use the built-in timer to give you a few seconds to frame the shot and hold the iPhone as still as possible.

I also show you a great way to control the camera remotely using your Apple Watch. There's something really cool about seeing your camera display and controlling zoom and exposure, all from your wrist!

watchOS 4 is Apple's latest update to the operating system powering the Apple Watch.

In this week's episode, we take a look at some of the new features and changes to the already-familiar apps on the Apple Watch.

++ Apps for Activity

Date: 16th June 2017

Show ref: SCOM0639

Whether you're already athletic, or if you want to get into better shape with the help of the Apple Watch, these ++ apps from Cross Forward Consulting might enhance your activity tracking.

The Apple Watch comes with both standard Workout and Activity apps that can show metrics on the watch as well as on the iPhone. Unfortunately, you can't control what metrics you see on the Apple Watch whilst doing a workout. With Workouts++ you can create custom watch faces for each type of workout you do, allowing you to display different metrics and even graphs on the Apple Watch.

In this tutorial, Allison Sheridan demonstrates the configuration of Workouts++ using real workout data, as well as how to use the information collected from your workouts in Activity++ and Pedometer++.

Whether you're an athlete, or just want to get more active, these apps will help make your workouts more fun.

Reminders on the Mac, iPhone & Apple Watch

Date: 24th March 2017

Duration: 36:44

Show ref: SCOM0615

Reminders is a surprisingly powerful application that comes with macOS, iOS and watchOS. With Reminders, you can bridge the gap between your calendar and a to do list. Reminders can be set for when you arrive or leave a location, they can be set for specific times and dates, they can repeat, and they can even be set to remind you to do something when you get into or out of your car.

Reminders even lets you share lists with other Apple users so you can collaborate on tasks. You can use Siri to set up Reminders on your Mac, but Siri on iOS and the Apple Watch, makes Reminders the best tool for when you're on the run.

Apple AirPods

Apple's new AirPods have been out for a month or two now and I've had time to have a good play with them.

In this slightly shorter, live video show, I take you through the initial setup and usage of the AirPods on all the supported Apple platforms - iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac. I also take a look at setting up the AirPods on a slightly older Apple device - an iPod touch.

I have to say, I've been delighted with the AirPods and Apple have added their secret source to make the setup and switching a breeze.

iOS 10 & watchOS 3 - Update #2

Date: 13th October 2016

Duration: 36:11

Show ref: SCOM0579

Continuing with our look at Apples latest OS for the iPhone and iPad, I also take a look at some of the new features of the dramatically enhanced watchOS 3.

Apple have significantly improved the Apple Watch with the release of watchOS 3 by increasing performance and removing the friction points that were so evident in the first releases of watchOS. Performance is drastically improved and the usability of the Apple Watch has been transformed - so much so that unless you really need GPS or waterproofing, upgrading to a series 2 Apple Watch is optional.

In this episode I explore some of the changes made to enhance the functionality of the Apple Watch and demonstrate some of the new constructs for accessing and navigating Apple Watch apps.

With the recent release of both iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, this episode covers some of the new and updated features of both operating systems, as well as some handy tips on migrating your iPhone and Apple Watch to new devices.

With the Apple ecosystem being tightly integrated across all platforms, one update has an impact on all the others. Last month Apple released updates to OS X, iOS, watchOS and tvOS.

In this episode, I take a look at most of the major changes and enhancements across the board.
