    iPad OS

    I'm really surprised not to see any thread on IOS13/iPad OS. There are so many things that will make my 201812.9 Pro experience so much better that I just kept hurrahing as it was spelled out (but so fast hard to keep up with). And then as people got hands on and tried different things my smile...

    Case for 12.9 2018 with Pencil 2

    i have searched everywhere and no cases except Apple’s keyboard and folio allow for the Pencil 2 charging and storage while use. I wanted a ZUGU (Use w/a Logitech keyboard) and discovered that their 2018 wouldn’t work so they are redesigning to accommodate Pencil 2 charging. I understand that...

    Charging Pencil from Ipad

    i’ve had the Pencil since the beginning and use it every day. I, like most, have had battery loss issues and solved it (mostly) by keeping Pencil in a separate case away from Ipad when not using. However, I found that not having it right there for immediate use sometimes when I’d like to use...

    No Ipad Pros WWDC it appears

    I had hopes for new Ipad Pros (12.9) at WWDC but from all I am reading now, it appears most analysts think it will be only software until Fall. My 12.9 is first gen when only 128 GB was offered first part of year and I need more storage badly. Guess I’ll try to utilize Cloud storage more than...

    Deleting mail cache

    i have an original Ipad pro 12.9 that is only 128 GB (the size of the originals before they increased to 256 GB later)—and got message today I was running out of storage. Took care of as much as possible (hoping there is a gen 3 12.9 at WWDC) but a persistent 8+ GB of mail persists. I have...

    Affinity Photo for Ipad

    I'm surprised no one has posted in this forum about this app--which finally became available. I'm a long long time user of Photo apps on Windows and then on Mac OS but I've come to love the Ipad for use with photography. I've waited for this app because I like using the Pencil on the 12.9 Ipad...

    Possible end of 12.9 Ipad since 10.5???

    I've only read of the possibility on one site, Macrumors, but since I love the 12.9 Pro and don't plan to upgrade this cycle, it did alarm me a bit LOL. I'll be interested in hearing from those that have ordered the 10.5"--Macrumors seemed to feel the 10.5 is 'just right'. Perhaps--I will look...

    Logitech slim combo keyboard cover

    After procrastinating for well over a year about a keyboard case, think i will try the new Logitech Slim combo Keyboard case, It looks like all I've been looking for-well, within limits. If anyone else is trying it, please leave review here. Right now I'm using a BT keyboard with it when I...

    Very useful app for iPad with MacBook

    Wasn't sure where to post this but I brought out my Duet app (which I believe is 1/2 price right now) which I've owned for a year plus--have not used it because I discovered the Astropad app works better for original purpose, but a friend reminded me of the app--and I dragged it out again. If...

    Onscreen keyboard disappears

    Curious if others have experienced this I did a search but found nothing on this. I did Google the issue and found similar going back to IOS 6 and more with Iphone. I bought the Ipad Pro 12.7" in April I think and have had no problems until last two days. I have had an Ipad 1, 3, Air, several...

    Ipad Pro TMobile plan

    I haven't set up my cell plan for my ipad pro yet and am leaning to the T Mobile 5 GB/5 months for $10/mo. I have considered just tethering it to my Iphone which is Verizon. I bought the Ipad with the Apple SIM so I could change carriers and have a choice and the TMobile plan is half the price...

    So now what do we expect with iPad Pro second gen update?

    Likely going to buy an iPad Pro to update my iPad Air in the Fall. I've been wondering if it will be worthwhile to wait for the second generation or if its not announced in the Fall, to go with the current iPad Pro. Not that its not very good as is, but expect it will get some of the niceties...

    Still trying to find answer for air print with IOS 8

    I'm hoping IOS 8.1 will solve our Air Print issue with an HP printer (amazingly enough on the HP forum rep didn't appear to understand the difference between wireless direct offered on my printer where you select the printer in your settings/wifi and Air print) but don't plan to DL immediately...

    Third Party Keyboards for Ipad

    I'm curious how many have tried third party keyboards for the Ipad and if so, how you feel about them. I have tried free Swiftkey and bought Swype to try. Swiftkey may be a bit better than the native Apple keyboard as predictive and corrective on the Ipad but I admit I tend to just use the...

    Free Office alternative app

    I've used Office HD/Quick Edit for about 4 years and have really liked it but when presented with finding a 'free' office alternative for a PC for a friend besides Libre I discovered WPS Office (formerly Kingsoft Office) now has an IOS app. This will be perfect for her since she will be getting...

    Printer recommendations needed

    i have an HP 3510/11 I bought from many recommendations on an Apple forum--also at great price from a special purchase probably because a new model came out. The HP 3511 works terrifically with the Ipad (Air or Three)--we have the printer upstairs in our office and if we are downstairs and have...

    Lightning to 30 pin adapter work with Camera Connector.

    I've had my camera connector for over 4 years now with Ipad 1 and Ipad 3 I am going to buy an Ipad 5 and will either need to buy a new CC with Lightning OR buy an adapter of Lightning to 30 pin if it works with the old camera connector. I have a good Belkin car charger I'd like to use also and...

    BT speakers

    For those looking for a quite small BT speaker (not dock) I thought I would mention Logitech's UE Mobile Boombox. I did a lot of research between it and Jambox, listened to both and found the Logitech UE a great value at $99. Its smaller, lighter, holds up well in sound--and its soft rounded...

    Disillusioned with Icloud

    Being a user of Dropbox for a good while, my hope for Icloud would be an accessible "cloud" backup for the Ipad but it is not. I just added storage to cover some important apps but wish I had spent the money with Dropbox for more storage. If you only have one Apple device it really isn't much...

    Possible to access Notes in Icloud?

    A friend has lost her Notes except for one. I've asked her if she may have altered them but she says no--they have just disappeared. AFAIK you can't access Notes in Icloud to restore it. I'm beginning to have grave doubts of the usefulness of Iclouds except for total restore. I use Dropbox...

    Two annoying bugs--I assume

    I've had the Ipad 3 since day 1--64 GB, 3G (and wooee, this week we got Lte/4G though I use very little data--usually less than 50% of my 1GB). Whenever I turn on cellular data, since I don't leave it on all the time--but even if it is still on, when switching from wifi to 3G which actually...

    automatic switching between 3G and wifi

    I've tried searching with different parameters and also a different forum but didn't get a definitive answer to my question. I have read various places that the Ipad (I have Ipad 3/64GB 3G coming from Ipad 1 64GB wifi only for two years) will automatically switch from 3G to wifi when available...

    3G with wifi connectivity issues

    I had read that Apple is "collecting" the Ipad 3s wifi with connectivity issues but couldn't find anything about the 3G Ipads with the problem. Up until today I haven't had any problems but I turn 3G off and on when I need it. I find I have to reboot once a day to get it to search for Verizon...

    Intermittent not connecting Ipad 3 with Verizon

    With my Ipad 3 I find it doesn't always connect with Verizon when I turn it on. It shows it is connected but there is no data exchange. After a soft reset it will search and find the network and work quite well. I don't know if this is and Ipad 3 issue, a Verizon issue, IOS 5.1 issue or my...

    How to keep track of your cell usage

    I had a wifi only Ipad for almost 2 years so new to one with 3/4G. I chose the smallest amount of data because we have so much wifi available and I want to see how much I use. How do you find/keep up with your data usage? I found one place in settings for data and cell usage but mine now says...

    Hiw much data per GB

    Is there a site anywhere that gives one an idea of what can be downloaded per GB in a data plan? We have extensive wifi in my area so using it is emergency for me and I will increase data amount when we travel. I got the smallest amount in Verizon this time and expect I won't be able to do...

    Something to watch for--heating up

    I put my original Apple cover on my new Ipad 3 to protect when I stuck it in my Rickshaw Ipad bag to protect it temporarily. I was only gone about an hour and a half but when I got home the back of the Ipad was so warm it was almost too uncomfortable to hold or sit in my lap---when I took it...

    Can't get Kindle app to sync with new Ipad

    I have new Ipad and have two original Ipads and a Touch synced to Kindle. I think my problem comes from restoring this new one to the original one but then changing its name since I'm keeping the old one. Kindle only has the two Ipad ones and doesn't "see" this one. I sort of think it is like...

    Ipad 3 case that works similarly to original Apple Case

    I actually like my original Ipad 1 cover since it covers front and back, gives me sloped surface to type when I'm not using my Propup, allows me to sit on long side for use with BTkeyboard but haven't been able to find something similar for Ipad 3/2. I also have a Dodo case for mine but never...

    Itunes backup vs. Icloud backup

    I've been told here (and it makes good sense and what I'm going to do) that the best thing for transferring my current Ipad info to new Ipad is to do Itunes backup and restore from that. So--a friend in another country took his Ipad 2 in for some help from genius bar and in the end (he admits...

    Itunes backup, just pondering here....

    I asked the question not long ago about moving one Ipad from a dead computer to another computer and nothing I've found has really gotten me to do it. My husband's gen 1 is tethered to his now dead computer but has IOS5.0.1 so firmware is upgraded via wifi. Though we share an Apple account I...

    Moving Ipad to another computer

    My husband's computer died and I want to add his Ipad 1/IOS 5.0.1 to my computer where I also have an Ipad 1 with IOS 5.0.1. We share one Apple account but I set his Ipad up recently with his own Apple ID so our Photostreams didn't merge and we could Imessage between devices. To add to my...

    moving to new computer, old one dead....

    It may end up that my husband's computer is not worth repairing again. I set his Ipad up on his--dumb, should have just added his to my computer as it also has my Touch on it and we share an Apple acct (though I set up a separate Apple ID for Icloud and Photostream). Now we may add a new...

    Changing Icloud ID

    Common issue--wife, husband have two Ipads, one Apple ID for buying apps and books. I've been using IOS5 since first day but just got around to upgrading husband's Ipad yesterday. I didn't think this out before allowing Icloud to be his Apple ID also. I've searched and searched for answer and...

    No badge on app store

    I noticed that maybe for the last month or so I haven't gotten a badge on my app store icon signifying updates. I tend to have a lot of updates because I have a lot of apps LOL and it was nice to see when I needed to update. Now I only see the number of updates when I open the app store app. I...

    Overdrive for library

    Overdrive app was just updated and probably has just about everything one would want for a "temporary" reader for library books. There's no search, highlighting, etc as one expects in our Kindle or Ibook but there's now a sepia background as well as a nightmode. Rather than a bookmark there is...

    Subscription services

    I just read more on TUAW blog and really do wonder what will happen to subscription services like Rhapsody and Netflix, let alone Kindle and Nook, i use all of these services on either the Ipad or my Touch. Rhapsody has said they can't deal with the 30% so will remove their app (assuming no...

    Overdrive for library borrowing
