    I love my new iPad but I have so much to learn. One thing I would like to do is upload and edit pictures to my Costco photo account. When I tried to log in to that account, the error message told me that their webpage is not compatible with my browser. It gave me a link to upgrade to Windows 8, but I'm not sure if I should do that. Any suggestions? Thanks!!!

    To upload photographs, you either need a different browser such as iCab, or a dedicated app, if one exists. Safari will not handle photo uploads to a website.

    Welcome to the forum, by the way.

    Costco has their own app. You are able to upload and order prints directly on the app from your ipad or iPhone.

    Do you have the link? I just had a look and it's not in the Canadian App Store.

    Not sure how to post an App Store link, but did you check under iPhone apps. I just noticed It's not under ipad apps, but iPhone.

    Dumb of me, but it doesn't appear under iPhone apps either. To get the link, navigate to the app in the App Store, then touch the action button in the top right corner of the app description box. From the options that appear, select "Copy Link". You can then paste the link into a post here.

    Unfortunately the app is not available in the Canadian Store only the US. Even asks if you would like to change stores but I guess our CRTC watchdogs jump in and sever the connection, not enough Canadian content I suppose. :D

    Actually, you can now upload photos using Safari in iOS 6, at least to most sites; probably as many as iCab Mobile will work with. Photos are the only thing you can upload (unlike iCab Mobil), but it is an improvement.

    However; it sounds like the the Costco photo upload site is not mobile compatible. It probably uses Java or some other desktop plug-in. I can't check it myself, not having an account and not wanting to set one up for no other purpose.

    Well, I'm speechless. Thanks, TP.

    Posted using Safari to iPF. Wow. When did this change come about?

    iOS 6.0

    It was one of the less talked about changes, along with a lot of other minor improvements to the other native apps. The Maps debacle kept the news and blogs so busy that many of them never, or only barely mentioned the goodies at the bottom of the box. I'm still stumbling across minor stuff.

    Remember how many people used to complain about not being able to clear the auto-suggested email addresses in Mail. Now you can. Not the ones in your Contacts (of course) but any email you received or entered manually will have a blue arrow in the suggestion list. Tap on it and you can choose Delete, along with a couple of add to Contacts options.

    Just another of the unsung reasons why iOS 6 is better, Maps or no Maps. :D
