April 27 Meeting
iPhone Out of the Box
George Wilde will be discussing iPhone and iPad Basics – just what comes with your iPhone or iPad out of the box. There will be no discussion of any third party Apps, or even Apple Apps that do not come preinstalled on a new iPhone or iPad.
The presentation addresses how you can use your iPhone or iPad to maximum advantage with iOS 9. including iPhone and iPad controls, buttons, and switches, use of finger gestures, arranging apps and organizing them into folders, using Spotlight search, Siri and “Hey Siri”, multitasking and navigating between apps, use of copy & paste, discussion of what all of those numerous little status bar icons mean, finding somewhat hidden critical settings that can improve performance and avoid excessive charges – including Wi-Fi Calling, Wi-Fi Assist, Personal Hotspots, and Data Roaming, setting a secure passcode as well as passcode and fingerprint implications, privacy considerations, using Apple Pay, use of iCloud and iCloud security, as well as music and photos in iCloud and cost tradeoffs among the several music and photo options available from Apple, using your iPhone in an emergency, using the Control Center and Notification Center, adding email accounts, generating secure notes, setting up reminders, using handoff between devices, Slide Over, Split View, and Picture in Picture on newer iPads, and many other topics.
The presentation uses a number of photos, screen captures, and very short screen videos to clearly illustrate the topics being discussed. A PDF of the presentation slides will be posted on the SBAMUG website so that you can go back and refer to the presentation materials at a later time. Bring your iPhone or iPad to the meeting so that you can follow along.
Also, Tom Thorpe will continue his series on Internet Basics with a short presentation titled Hooking Up.
