    Storage of photos

    A call to Applecare gave the answer that the compression algorithm on the cloud reduces the bytes needed vs the way they are stored on the device.

    Storage of photos

    Guess it is all magic. Before I used 2.0 Gb on the Pad and 950 Mb on the cloud. After deleting those "deleted photos" I had 1.6 Gb and 928 Mb respectively. Oh well, I still have plenty of room so I'll blunder along :-) none the wiser.

    Storage of photos

    Twerp poet, Did an experiment and deleting photos from family share did NOT appear to lower storage size of photos. (They were all my photos, not photos shared by other family members. ) HOWEVER deleting photos from the cache holding Deleted Photos did reduce storage. Also as all Unselected...

    Storage of photos

    Twerp poet, Did a bit math and it seems to support your theory. Guess the 'sneaky' thing is that shared does not count on iCloud. Yet :)

    Storage of photos

    Makes sense! Thanks.

    Storage of photos

    Twerppoet, thanks for suggestion. Photos use 2.0 Gb. Photo Stream is 395kb. So that is not the difference. The only significant PhotoShare file (268 photos of 632 total photos) I have is Family Shared, mostly from my photos. Surely those would not be full size duplicates but rather pointers to...

    Storage of photos

    Well let me ask it a different way. I also save these pictures on dropbox. Could the dropbox thumbnails be taking up as much space on the device as the full pictures. I certainly shouldn't think so but so far nobody offered any other suggestions :-(

    Storage of photos

    My device shows, under Manage Storage, that I have 2.0 Gb of photos on the device. For iCloud Storage it shows 950 Mb of photos stored there. Since the iCloud is supposed to have full pixel storage of photos and the device can have full or "optimized" photos I am wondering why photos on the...

    Split screen

    I don't believe Split View works on all the apps that allow Slide Over, yet. Even on my Air 2.

    Dictionary ?

    "I do leave it on on my iPhone. The small keyboard makes correcting mistakes more of a chore, and the shortness of most messages make it less likely I won't notice bad autocorrects." I find the Swype keyboard very useful on my phone for this reason. Not so much on the iPad.

    Pages in iOS 9

    twerppoet, will try both. I also find Red Laser won't work with bar codes any more, only QR codes. Another iOS 9 glitch? YUP THAT DID IT . After delay on first conversion the second document worked as always. THANKS!

    Pages in iOS 9

    Trying to send a Pages document as a Word Doc. This worked in the past but now hangs up trying to convert to Word. Convert to PDF just fine. Is it just me ot is it iOS 9??

    Safari

    FWIW The User Guide for iOS8 has lots of good info on apps like Safari and iOS in general. It is a free book at the IBook store.

    iPhoto Events Album

    I understand and it is confusing! Now why does Apple not offer archival storage. Photo storage is just a mirroring site. For archival you need DropBox or similar or Time Macine on a Mac. Think there is work to do and confusions to eliminate by Apple!

    iPhoto Events Album

    Twerp poet, thanks. I am in iCloud Drive on all devices. All photos sync. The iPhoto Events is an album created by iPhoto I guess, not by me. So how did it decide which photos to put in it. I'm suspecting they are photos I put on a stick from old PC then uploaded to Mac. Mac created that folder...

    iPhoto Events Album

    It is all confusing but I think they all sync like you say. Hoping they will improve the syncing and iCloud Drive. Categories in photos on Mac should be same as on iPad. IMHO. pretty new to Mac, don't use it much as iPad does most all I need.

    iPhoto Events Album

    I believe that is the source...Mac has a folder called iPhoto events. Interesting. Events are basically displayed like what you find in the Photos view on iPad. By date, location etc. Could it be iPad will soon have only Albums and Share folders? IPhoto events album has a search option in...

    Lightning cord problems

    VERY HELPFUL TIP! I'll keep it in mind.

    iPhoto Events Album

    I didn't used to have that folder either. It has 300 of my 400 photos in it though so probably more than some program creating it. Could it be because of backing up to my Mac which has such a folder?

    iPhoto Events Album

    What's the purpose of the iPhoto Events folder in albums? Seems Apple has created it, I sure didn't. Also seems to be like the views in the photos sections - that is by date. But some events folders in iPhoto events albums appear empty ( Sept 3 in my case) yet I have a photo with that date. Very...

    Strong signal, no internet; restore

    Amen to that! I teach at the local Senior Center which has a Captive Wifi network. Often the students think they are connected to the Internet because the wifi signal displays but until they actually log in to the network, they are not. This requires the network to redirect the outgoing signal...

    iPad Air Safari showing up on my Macbook.

    My guess is we are transitional and eventually all will be folded into drive. But it's just a guess because current arrangement seems so illogical.

    iPad Air Safari showing up on my Macbook.

    So help me understand. iCloud and iCloud Drive. On my iPad I have Safari 'on' under iCloud but 'off' under iCloud. Drive. I should have thought turning it 'on' in iCloud would turn 'on' in iCloud Drive but not so for Safari. If i go, with my Mac to iCloud.com, I see Pages, Numbers, Keynote and...

    Astronomy App Sky Guide can be Downloaded for Free via the Apple Store app for a Limited Time

    My Apple Store app seems to only sell hardware has a section for eac device. No second page that I can see. Let's me make appointments, find classes.

    Thanks for input, my thinking too. An inexpensive plastic protector that is easily replaceable would seem ideal then.

    phone screen protectors

    TP's iPhone screen bit the dust. My VZN sales guy is pushing the new glass screen protectors and showed me one that "saved the phone" screen by cracking instead of the phone screen I have a plastic protector on my current phone but none on my iPad. SO thoughts on protectors I should get when I...

    What's the expected lifespan of an IPad?

    I refer to my earlier post on battery life being the limiting factor and refer to this MacRumors post. Apple hasoutlinedthat the Apple Watch battery is designed to retain up to 80% of its original capacity at 1000 complete charge cycles, which gives the watch's battery a lifespan of about...

    Better than safari ?

    InSafari In landscape if 'the book' at the top is blue your bookmarks are displayed, touch it, it turns white and those URLs disappear. Seems clever to me.

    The advantage of Safari is the rest of the apps link to it. Part of the Eco-system.

    What's the expected lifespan of an IPad?

    I should imagine declining battery life with age would be the limiting factor.
