    Notes Issue

    When you first start a new note, the new note icon (page and pencil) will be grayed out until you add something to the note. As soon as you start typing or drawing, the icon should become active again. You should also see a Done option appear when editing the note. I'm not sure why the pen...

    I don't know what you mean by "the square with a cross".

    Latest OS versions - discussions

    Unlocked my iPhone with Apple Watch for first time to day. Some fairly obvious observations, because I can’t keep my mouth shut. :oops: Apple does not have the resources to test all apps for a beta. That is up to the developers. When a developer stops supporting an app, it is time to start...

    “Reaction” button on fb with ipad air

    I can’t think of any reason an iOS update would cause this, Try restarting the iPad. Keep an eye out for an update for the FaceBook app. I can’t test anything. I quit FaceBook a couple years ago.

    Anyone know of a good cleaner app to clear out the user cache?

    Yes. The name has changed a couple of times over several versions. The option should clear the catch, cookies, and any Javascript data stored on the iPad.

    Notes Issue

    The first line of text will be larger and bold if "New Notes Start With" is set to Title in Settings > Notes. There is little else you can do. The Notes app does not have selectable fonts. You can type in bold, underline, and italic, but the text should be normal by default. There are some...

    Anyone know of a good cleaner app to clear out the user cache?

    Under Settings > Safari there should be an option to clear history and website data. The location varies a bit depending on the iOS version, but should not be difficult to find. Keep in mind this will also clear persistent log-in info, so that sites that normally remember that you are logged in...

    iPAD 7th Gen, 11 (A2197) ERROR 4013

    You probably know this, but if there is an Apple Store nearby they will run a diagnostic for free, then let you know what a repair will cost. It is likely that they will recover it from the current boot loop during the diagnostic, if it possible. After which, of course, you'll probably find...

    iPad issue

    Just the Music app's play controls. Sometimes it stick around longer than it's welcome. The Music app itself isn't doing anything, so long as you don't tap play. You should be able to make it to go away by force quitting the Music app.

    Mail on ipad

    Nope, but I almost never use bcc. Who is your email provider? You might have some control of your Junk Mail filter. If it's iCloud, make sure your own address is in the Contacts app. Apple will rarely junk an email if the address is in Contacts.

    SMS messages (outside the Apple Message App system) only work on the iPhone unless you enable it on the iPhone. On the iPhone go to Settings > Messages > Text Message Forwarding. Enable your two devices there, and they should start receiving all messages that your iPhone does. Note: Only...

    Cursor problems in Pages - cursor doesn’t show insertion point

    Only thing I can suggest is the usual restart of the iPad. I've been using Pages a fair amount recently, and have not noticed an issues. The last update to Pages was three weeks ago, so unless you've been living with this for a while, it's unlikely to be a new bug. Note: Force quitting the app...

    One of the best you can buy. At least until the next WWDC, this June 7th.

    iPad as laptop Replacement

    New iPad models generally come out mid year. It's pretty common to have bought the previous year's model if you aren't paying close attention to release dates, especially if you do not buy direct from Apple. New models generally take a month or two to hit the normal outlets. That said, nothing...
