….or even AFTER using it! These tips are from an article on cnet.com.
- Clean out your old phone – delete unwanted apps and photos, for example. Then backup your old phone to iCloud. That’s going to make it MUCH easier to setup your new device.
- If you are moving from Android to IOS, Apple has an app caled “Move to IOS” in your app store. Install it on your Android device – it will also save you a lot of headaches.
- Learn about Gestures, which are used to navigate and use the phone. CLICK HERE for a cnet article – complete with animations – that explains what’s available in IOS13.
- Setup FaceID – the feature that uses your face to unlock the phone. It’s a concept that’s been around a while – Windows Surfaces have been using this type of thing for several years. CLICK HERE to learn more about FaceID from cnet.
- Spend some time getting to know your new device. On campus we call it “playing” – off campus we call it “research”. Either way, spend the time just exploring. CLICK HERE for a good article about the new features. CLICK HERE for an article about some hidden gems – features you may not know exist.
- Make sure you have the Find My service setup and turned on. [Settings –> AppleID section on the top left.]
- Elsewhere on this site is an article with some suggested Privacy settings. You don’t want Apple to know ALL your business, now, do you?
- Did you know you can record your screen? That’s also true of many of the iPads on campus.
