With the introduction of iOS 11.4 & macOS 10.13.5, Apple have delivered on Messages for iCloud. No longer are messages hit and miss on your various devices, now you can store an encrypted archive in iCloud for use by all devices.

In this week's tip video, Don takes you through some of the limitations of the old Messages architecture, demonstrates switching on the new Messages in iCloud and takes a look at how it works in operation.

This tip video was recorded prior to the release of macOS 10.13.5, so to setup Messages in iCloud on your Mac, open Messages - Preferences - Accounts - Select your iCloud Account and switch on "Enable Messages in iCloud"

Following on from a request from a ScreenCastsOnline member, Don went on a quest to find out the best way to extract messages from the Messages app for use in emails or other applications. The best solution he found was PhoneView from Ecamm - but it does so much more!

In this week's tip video, Don takes you through the initial setup of PhoneView and demonstrates how easy it is to create PDFs, Text files, CSV files and more from your messages. You can even extract the media files and play them independently. PhoneView is also a great way to create permanent archives of your messages.

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.
