    Update to my dead mini problem: I did take it to the local computer repair shop (he does both Mac & PC) and he pronounced it dead. I have not had a chance to take it to the Apple store as of yet but will do so in the next few weeks and will come back and post the results. Thanks for all the...

    Ipad Air 2 /iPad 2 : Are these the same?

    My mini died (see thread in mini forum) and I bought an iPad Air 2. Is this the same one that Apple is discontinuing? I saw the list, but it is quite confusing to someone who is not familiar with the different products and their 'formal' names. Also, I am taking my mini to the Apple store to...

    My Mini died!

    KevinJS: I have my own 'old lady' iPhone...a mini & a flip phone...;^) Update: I took my new iPad Air 2 to the Verizon store where they have a fantastic rep , which whom I'd made an appt to set up my new iPad. Quite a few differences and it will take a while until I get used to it. They also...

    My Mini died!

    Oh, the damage is already done. Got a good deal on an iPad air....Labor Day sale......$300 off....The best time to buy is either holiday or when new stuff is coming out.Well, that's the best face I can put on this...;^)

    My Mini died!

    Thank you for this suggestion. I will make an appt and have it checked out. Altho' the nearest Apple Store is over two hrs away, I could get in some serious shopping (!) at the same time....And I will repost w/results once it is checked.

    My Mini died!

    I'm not sure which gen I have, (I got it just under 3 yrs ago...9/24/13) but I think it is totally dead. I attached it to my desktop and opened iTunes & nothing, after trying the two-button reset again. Is this a problem w/later generations? I will also discard the Verizon car charger I was...

    My Mini died!

    Good morning, mini users. I have a most unusual occurrence. I was using my mini in the car for directions, as is not uncommon, and I noticed that it needed to be charged. Again, as is common, I plugged it in w/ the Verizon charger that I keep in there. I was holding it (I'm passenger), put it...

    Mini/move photos onto data card?

    JA....I owe you thanks...you reminded me of the simplest way to go...connect Mini to computer via USB/ Lightning & everything almost transferred by itself. I feel quite dumb...thanks for getting my brain working again! mini

    Mini/move photos onto data card?

    One would be to connect your iPad to it, but don't sync. You can find here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4083 what to do. JA...this reminds me that back when I got the mini, I had to connect it to my desktop to synch it ....so I must have a Lightning to USB cable to do just this.... This is...

    Mini/move photos onto data card?

    The card reader is meant to import pictures to your iPad. It doesn't work the other way round.... Yea...I figured that one out...;^( Thank you for the links. I will give them a try in the next few minutes. mini

    Mini/move photos onto data card?

    I have an iPad mini & used it yesterday to photograph my hours-old grandson, thinking I could transfer photos to a data card & then to my desktop. (I have the card reader for mini.) Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a way to do so... I live in the boonies and am on a data plan, so...

    iPad mini/week trip to Italy/photo storage and viewing

    Update....after discussions w/the photography professional leading this trip, I have decided that the Mini will not be adequate for the critiques of the photos that he has planned. So old Mac Pro will be lugged along along...

    iPad mini/week trip to Italy/photo storage and viewing

    Remember I do have my 40 GB Hyperdrive Space (portable hard drive) on which I will download all my files first…it just attaches to Big Mac via USB & I'll transfer files when I get home. iPad is just for viewing…. Each file did have the RAW tag..was I wrong to assume that it was the RAW file...

    iPad mini/week trip to Italy/photo storage and viewing

    Hello, all, First let me apologize for not getting back to the Forum sooner. It just got very busy for a time. Here is the scoop! IPad mini WILL support RAW (photographic) files IF iPhoto is installed and files are downloaded to it. When the card reader is connected via the lightning port...

    iPad mini/week trip to Italy/photo storage and viewing

    I'll report back tomorrow about the photo on SD card-to-Mini-to-Mac transfer and whether the format changes. Looks as if I'm in the market for a few more SD cards ;^) Better to have 'em & not need 'em...then need 'em & not have 'em. On the trip I'll download everything daily to my Hyperdrive...

    iPad mini/week trip to Italy/photo storage and viewing

    ***Dave, You inspired me to total up my cards...I have mega SD (all Sandisk Extreme) cards…2-16Gb (just bought these), 3-8GB, 2-4GB, 4-1GB for a total of 68 GB. I bought the lightning to SD card reader to transfer images from the cards to the iPad. Looks as if I may have enough media…. One thing...

    iPad mini/week trip to Italy/photo storage and viewing

    Hello again and thanks in advance for the information and advice I hope to receive. I have not yet been disappointed with the spot-on info I have received from this group. I will be traveling to Italy in a few weeks on a photography tour. I am not a pro, but do exhibit and sell my work, and use...

    Pandora data usage

    thanks you for your suggestion...no, I am out in the boonies so no cable is available...I have satellite TV (only option) and had used a Verizon aircard for several years for Internet..using my iPad as the hotspot is basically the same thing but more portable than a laptop & aircard when traveling.

    Pandora data usage

    Thank you, all...and for the links to read before I do this....just for the record I use cellular data as my iPad is also my hotspot for my computer. I do have iTunes on my Mac so I am ready to go.

    GPS/elevation data

    Hello, again...I appreciate the great advice I get from this site, so here is my second question of the day: i have several GPS apps (Telenav Scout, Google maps, Maps, Free GPS) on my mini...I have looked, but may be missing it...do any of the GPS apps...either what I have or another) with...

    Pandora data usage

    I have been told that Pandora really eats up the data...I did check my usage but am not sure how to calculate/determine Pandora's usage. I could check the Verizon website before & after I use it ( like to listen while I walk...about 1.5/hrs daily)....but is there an 'app for that'?? ;^) If...

    Private browsing /Safari

    Hi, giradman , Thanks you for your inquiry. I am using 7.0.4... I have elected to use email through Safari (Yahoo) as I have several email addresses....for business, different groups, family, etc. That way the emails are already categorized and I don't have them all jumbled up...also easier to...

    Private browsing /Safari

    I have been trying to read my email using Safari. Cannot do so as a message on the screen tells me to go to Safari settings and turn off private browsing. I've looked & looked and there is not such a setting. Could someone please tell me where it is? thank you! Mini user

    Good Morning and thank you

    I recently treated myself to an iPad (mini) for my birthday and it had proven most useful in the short time I have had it. It certainly beats hauling my Macbook Pro & its associated wireless paraphernalia along on a trip. I was accumulating dozens of 'No Sender' emails which could not be...
