How to Reset Your iPad

How to Reset the iPad to Factory Default By Daniel Nations The two most common reasons for resetting an iPad to the factory default settings are to prepare the iPad up for a new owner or to overcome a problem with the iPad that simply rebooting the iPad won't solve. If you are planning on selling your iPad, or even giving it to a family member, you will want to reset the iPad to the factory default settings. This will wipe your iPad, erasing the settings and data, and returning it to the exact state as when you first opened the box. By wiping the iPad, you allow it to be set up properly by the new owner. You also protect yourself and your personal information by making sure all of the settings and data are erased from the iPad. Resetting the iPad is also used as a troubleshooting tool. Many common problems can be solved by deleting the offending app and downloading it again from the App Store or powering the iPad down and restarting it, but problems that persist beyond Read the full article →

Apple releases iOS 7.0.2 with fix for Lock screen passcode bypass flaw

Mark Gurman iOS Devices 1 HOUR, 57 MINUTES AGO SHARE 3 COMMENTS Apple has released iOS 7.0.2 over-the-air for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This is a bug fix release that focuses on rectifying an issue that could allow users to bypass the passcode unlock on the Lock screen. Another fix in this release is to re-add the Greek keyboard options for pass codes. iOS 7.0.2 brings iOS 7 parity across all supported devices. Alongside the launch of the new iPhones, Apple released iOS 7.0.1, but this release was exclusive to the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. Today’s over-the-air update requires a WiFi connection to download and install, and the file size ranges from between 17MB and 20MB depending on which device you are using. Apple has been testing this bug fix release internally for a couple of weeks, and the company seems to also be testing an update known as iOS 7.1. Perhaps this will arrive alongside the new iPads next month. Read the full article →

How to get iOS 7 on your iPhone 5, 4S, iPad, iPad mini and iPod Touch

Apple By James Plafke Apple’s new mobile operating system, iOS 7 is here. This time around, though, the OS has undergone a massive redesign — making it one of Apple’s most anticipated OS releases to date. Here’s how to get iOS 7 on your Apple device right now.Apple’s new iOS 7 will be available as a free update to the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C (not that either would need it), iPhone 4S, and iPhone 4, the iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, and iPad mini, and the fifth-gen iPod Touch. As always, make sure you back up your device using iCloud or iTunes, just in case things go awry during the installation process.There has been some confusion about this over the course of today so, if you are asking “Can the iPhone 4 get iOS 7″ the answer is “yes.” iOS 7 will work with the iPhone 4 and all later phones, including the iPhone 4S.

This past Tuesday, Apple announced the new iPhones, the iPhone 5s and the cheaper, plastic iPhone 5c, which, I must confess, looks cool. If I were going to go for a 5c, I'd definitely be after the green one. However, I have to check whether my current, two year AT&T contract allows me to upgrade my iPhone without a penalty. That said, I will be upgrading to the new mobile operating system, iOS 7, which is coming out next Wednesday, September 18th. Needless to say, I'll be blogging about tips and tricks, as I discover them on iOS 7. In the meantime, if you're going to upgrade to iOS 7 like me, you should always back up your iPhone data first, just in case. Upgrading your iPhone's software has always been easy to do. Normally, you will be alerted that an upgrade is available when a circled number appears on the Settings icon, (as shown below), in the Home screen.  If the alert doesn't automatically show up, when you plug your iPhone into your computer, iTunes Read the full article →

Monday February 11, 2013 12:06 pm PST by Jordan Golson Apple has released iOS 6.1.1 for iPhone 4S devices, presumably fixing the 3G issues that carriers warned their customers about with the iOS 6.1 update.

iCloud explained and how to set it up

What Does iCloud Do? iCloud will store your music, photos, documents, contacts, calendar events and more and automatically push them to all your devices over Wi-Fi or 3G. iTunes Purchases Whenever you purchase music, apps and books in iTunes it will automatically transfer the items to your other iOS devices and your computer. Which means you can buy a song from iTunes on your iPad, and it will show up on your iPhone without having to sync it. You can buy a book on your iPhone and leave a bookmark, then pick up reading the book where you left off on your iPad. All of your previous purchases are available for download on your devices with iCloud. If you have music that was not purchased through iTunes, Apple has iTunes Match for $24.99 a year. iTunes Match will let you store your entire music collection in iCloud without having to upload most of your music. The only songs that would require uploading are ones that are not in the iTunes store. Photos Photo Stream applies the same Read the full article →

Apple and the year ahead

by Dan Moren,   Dec 30, 2011 9:00 am Assuming apocalyptic doomsday predictions from South America don’t come to fruition, 2012 is poised to be a different kind of year for Apple. In 2011, the company rolled out significant updates to most of its products—including two major new operating system versions—and also introduced a new Web platform to glue all of its devices and platforms together. But the company also lost its most significant figure, Steve Jobs, and had a new man officially take the reins of the company.
