This week's tip demonstrates how easy it is to share screens via the standard Messages app in macOS.

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!

Apple Mail rules allow you to create and run complex commands on incoming mail, allowing you to filter, organise or even respond automatically to messages.

In this week's tip, I take a look at some simple Apple Mail rules that demonstrate their potential power. The only downside to setting up rules locally on your Mac is that Mail needs to be running and there is no sync mechanism.

In next week's tip video, I will take a look at running Apple Mail rules on so that they're active 24/7, and also trickle down to your iOS devices.

Apple Mail on macOS allows you to create multiple email signatures and format them with a range of fonts and colours. You can have multiple email signatures per account, and across different accounts.

It's also possible to copy the formatted email signatures across to iOS, although Mail on iOS supports a single email signature per account.

In this short tip video, I demonstrate how to create your email signature in Mail on macOS and transfer across to your iPad using Universal Clipboard.

Make use of iCloud Photo Sharing and create a shared Photo Album, then display it on the iPad in Guided Access mode.

This short tip shows you how to configure and set up your Digital Photo Frame.

Whilst apps like Plex are great for syncing video to your iPhone or iPad for offline viewing, sometimes you just want to download a video from YouTube or Vimeo at a moment's notice. This happened to me last month just as I was about to board a plane.

The good news is that with a little setting up and some specific apps, it is entirely possible to download video content for offline use, directly to your iPad or iPhone.

Following on from a look at setting up restrictions on iOS in last week's tip video, we turn our attention to the Mac. In a similar fashion, it's possible to setup restrictions on the Mac using Parental Controls inside System Preferences.

Parental Controls allow you to restrict access to apps, web browsing and much more. You can even set time periods as well as time limits of allowed usage.
