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. The bigger question with these two is not if you can upgrade, but if you should upgrade to iOS 7. Neither of these devices is as speedy as the iPhone Read the full article →


So, when you're working on a computer, what are the two, most important words you should think about most often? The answer, 'Back up'! You probably already use some form of back up, either Time Machine, or iCloud or another cloud service. You might even have your computer connected to a firewire drive, or you save to DVD, although this has become increasingly hard to do these days because of space limitations. If you've ever had a computer crash - and I have - uggghhh! - you'll know the panic feeling! One of the first thoughts which went through my mind was "Oh, no! Have I lost all my contacts and my calendar data?". I certainly don't keep paper copies of either my address book or my calendar. Nightmare! However, there's a really simple way to back up both your Contacts and Calendar. Here's how. First, open the Contact app. You'll find it either in your Dock or in the Applications Folder. Now, go the File Menu and select Export...Contacts Archive This 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. The update, which is specific to the iPhone 4S, comes with a build number of 10B145. It weighs in at a relatively paltry 23MB. A beta of iOS 6.1.1 was released in the middle of last week carrying a build number of 10B311 -- it's likely the upgrade released today was an urgent bug fix and the prior iOS 6.1.1 beta sent to developers will become iOS 6.1.2.  About iOS 6.1.1 Software Update This update fixes an issue that could impact cellular performance and reliability for iPhone 4S.

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.
