Tip - Family Sharing - iCloud Storage

Date: 10th October 2017

Duration: 05:00

Show ref: SCOM0672

If you have an iCloud account, you are allocated 5GB of iCloud storage for free, as part of your iCloud account.

The problem is, with the increasing need for iCloud storage, 5GB is not enough for most people.

Up until now, the only option was for each individual to pay for additional iCloud storage each month.

However, with the introduction of iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra, it's now possible for families using iCloud Family Sharing to have a single paid tier of iCloud storage and use it as a shared pool of storage.

In this weekly tip, I demonstrate how to set up iCloud Storage Family Sharing, and how each family member can access it, on both macOS and iOS.

Tip - macOS & iOS - Managing Wifi

Date: 14th March 2017

Duration: 05:32

In this week's tip video we take a look at managing your WiFi connections on both the Mac and iOS.

If you're an iCloud user and switch on iCloud Keychain Sync, the details of all WiFi hotspots you connect to will be synchronised across all your devices - including the WiFi passwords too.

This can be extremely useful, but after a while you'll most likely end up with a huge list of WiFi networks on your devices, many of which, you'll never visit again.

Watch this week's tip video to learn how to manage your ever increasing list of WiFi networks.

Backups & iCloud Drive

With the introduction of iCloud Drive Desktop and Documents sync in macOS Sierra, I felt it was time to revisit the how, what and where of backups.

Even with the prevalence of online backups and services, local backups are still advisable including bootable backups if you want to get back working in a hurry. In this episode, I take you through the principles of creating a local bootable backup to a USB drive, as well as setting up a Time Machine backup to the same USB drive.

In addition, I demonstrate using a NAS or Network Attached Storage device (in my case a Synology NAS) as an expandable Time Machine Backup.

Another requirement is to sometimes backup or sync files across two Macs or more, and I demonstrate setting this up using ChronoSync and ChronoAgent on your Mac.

Finally, I take a look at the recent changes to iCloud Drive with Desktop and Documents sync and assess how these changes impact on your backup strategy, as well as demonstrating how to restore deleted files and folders from iCloud Drive within the 30 day limit.

Two parts to this week's tutorial - PopClip and iCloud Web Apps.

PopClip is a brilliant utility that mimics the popup that appears when you select text in iOS, but on your Mac. As well as allowing you to copy and paste, it now also allows you to install extension to do all sorts of things with the selected text.

iCloud Web Apps are just like the standard apps you find on your Mac and iOS device - but on the web!
