Apple Watch 4

This is a screenshot from Apple’s website.  I’ve been reading and listening to podcasts trying to get some more information about the newest watch. What’s New and Old The new watch series 4 has a new feature called Fall Detection.  From the information available, a lot of testing went into this feature.  It’s going to be very beneficial, especially for those who live in areas of snow and ice.  Also for anyone who is prone to falling.  This could be someone who is older or someone who may have other medical conditions that make them prone to falling. The series … Continue reading Apple Watch 4

Where Have You Been?

This is not new to iOS 12.  It’s been there, but I just learned about it a couple weeks ago from a podcast I listen to about Apple devices. First things first, the information on your device is encrypted and can’t be read by Apple.  It is stored only on your device.  I’m sure there are many who won’t believe this to be true and there won’t be anything said here to try and convince you one way or the other.  If your location services is turned off, you should not have any history. How to Find Where You’ve Been … Continue reading Where Have You Been?

Messages and Photos Update

With every new update there will be changes in how you find something or where it “lives” now.  I just found this one last night and wanted to share it with you today. There’s a bonus in the photo below too.  If you figure it out before reading the post, let me know in the comments.  Come on Apple, it’s been a long time coming for this change! 👩🏻‍💻🤦🏻‍♀️📱 Update on Finding Photos in Messages In a previous post on how to easily find photos in messages, there has been a small change.  But like traditional Apple updates, if something … Continue reading Messages and Photos Update

iOS 12 Quick Update

Updated iPhone and iPad Today Morning everyone! I’m back from training and updated this morning. I didn’t have any issues. What about you? Have you updated your devices? Any issues you have had or seen others have? Let me know! This will be quick as I need to get to work! As you can see in photo below, the first thing I noticed was the bolder “predictive” text. Predictive text is the text that shows when you start typing. It’s predicting what word you might want so you can tap on the word. Maybe Apple just made the background a … Continue reading iOS 12 Quick Update

UPDATED: Free Camera App

UPDATED 9/15/18:  The video link was not loading.  Please see the directions and screen shots below. Thanks Apple! I have not used this app or even heard of it before. So this is not a recommendation, I happened to be an app that Apple is giving away free until 9/25/18. Wanted to share this with you because Apple must think it’s pretty good if they decided to give it away. I used the Apple Store app (you can download it from the App Store) to look at the pricing for the new Apple Watch and new iPhones for a post … Continue reading UPDATED: Free Camera App

Apple’s Event

  Wow! I was only able to watch the Apple Watch 4 presentation and I fell in love with the watch all over again! The addition of Fall detection and ability to record an EKG was way more than I expected.  Plus the watch function is FDA approved!  That’s a huge accomplishment for Apple.  This will be an amazing tool for patients to keep their physicians informed.  I hate when you’ve been sick and your symptoms disappear the morning of your appointment! Below is a link that has lots of information shown during the event, as well as stories they … Continue reading Apple’s Event

Tomorrow is the Day!

Lots of rumors going around and “leaks” of what’s coming from Apple tomorrow.  My excitement is getting the best of me!  📱👩🏻‍💻⌚️🖥💻 However, I’ve learned not to believe it until I see it.  If you would like to listen to the event, there are multiple ways. If you are on Twitter, search for Apple’s verified account and they will post a link there for you to click that you “like” the tweet and they’ll send you a link.  Typically so many people are logging in, I usually have a couple alternatives.  You can do a Google search, how to watch … Continue reading Tomorrow is the Day!

Close Your Rings!

Have you wondered, how do I close those darn rings?  The Stand ring has been one that’s hard for me to close since I have a full time desk job.  But I still try to get up and stretch even if I can’t leave my desk to walk around a little. The name, Stand ring is a little misleading.  It’s not just stand, it’s move around for 1 minute also. Help with What the Rings Mean Each ring is designed to really get you moving.  Stand, Exercise, Move.  They look really good when they are closed.  Plus it’s motivating to see … Continue reading Close Your Rings!
