    iPad Mini 2 Disconnects From Wireless Modem

    I have the iPad mini 2. I use it via my iPhone hotspot. And every now and then, connecting is slow or stubborn to connect. Like you doing a "restart" on the iPad fixes it. Maybe it is a quirk that you need to accept.

    Mini 4 Wifi Issues

    Hi Chris. I had the wi fi aerial replaced in iPhone 6. It cost me $100 Aussie. For me I thought it was worth it.

    IOS14

    Hi T Poet. I see now there is a fast scroll method using the home page dots at the bottom. Alas the move arrived just as I am now down to less than one page!

    IOS14

    Hi T poet. I'm the opposite to you. I have the least number of apps possible! They easily fit on the home screen in a few folders. I like the translator, seems to work a treat. So next I guess will look at the experts "best 20" lists. At present, Mail seems to have picked up a couple of issues...

    IOS14

    Well I see that in iOS 14 there is now a library. Actually I miss the point as one can have a bunch of folders on the Home page, seems to be much the same to me. What gives here?

    Mini 4 iPad unable to save to windows 10 Pc

    Hi Janset. I mentioned "reset" I meant "restart". The restart will not cause any grief, but in my experience it fixes many problems. Have you tried doing the backup without being online? I have iTunes set to backup to "This computer" then "Local backup" then "Encrypted". iTunes does not ask me...

    Mini 4 iPad unable to save to windows 10 Pc

    Hi Janset. Seems like the problem is with the iPad? Have you tried resetting the iPad first? Have you tried a different PC? Do you open iTunes and then plug in the iPad and wait for the little icon that says basically that iTunes is ready, then click on that icon? Perhaps uninstall iTunes and re...

    Slideshow in the TV app

    Hi T Poet. Thanks, lots of useful information as usual. You are right I get the videos into the TV app by some iTunes magic. And the Music app seems to play continually in listed order, so that's a possible solution. Anyway for the time being I will put any videos I want to slideshow into to the...

    Slideshow in the TV app

    Hi Jezzer. That's right. I have lots of shortish videos and wish to play them one after the other. So far cannot do that from the TV app. I can do it from the photos app. But much prefer keeping videos in the "videos" app, and photos in the photos app. Simple. Big thanks for your reply.

    Slideshow in the TV app

    I have iPad Mini 4. OS 13.1.3 I have videos in the "recent" album of the photos app and can slideshow them. I have videos in the TV app but cannot find a way to slideshow them. Surely this is possible? Any help is appreciated.

    Hi T Poet. Thanks for replying and for that level of detail. I could not get any more accounts to show in "send and receive" section. But no worries all works well enough with what I have.

    Text

    Hi T Poet. Thanks for the clarification. Perhaps you can advise about the "send & receive" section in iMessage settings. My iPad seems to allow in "you can receive imessages to and reply from" only two entries. I.e a cell phone number and an email address. Is it possible to add more? I don't get...

    Hi T Poet. Can you please clarify your post a little for me? I cannot send text messages via "message" on my iPad Mini 4, unless I tether the iPad to "on" iPhone. Are you saying that there is another way to send texts from iPad? My iPad does not have a cellular connection, only WiFi to a phone...

    Update 13

    Hi Giradman! Going to update iPad today. Just got 13.1 on iPhone. I think I will stay with darkmode. Seems particularly good in "Settings". At last some editing functions in Mail.

    iOS13 Maps

    I have updated to iOS13. I have iPhone 7 In Maps I cannot find how to "rename" existing destinations. Also I would like to "re-order" the destinations in my preferred order, used to be able to do that, but now... I realise it is still very early days, but any help will be appreciated. I will...

    Personal Hotspot menu entry missing.

    Hi Scifan. The only thing is that I don’t know how I lost the entry in the first place. Anyway all good!

    Personal Hotspot menu entry missing.

    Hi TPoet and Scifan. Well! Resetting all settings (in general settings) resolved the issue I had with the missing Personal Hotspot entry. See inserted pic. And as a bonus the iPad as a whole works noticeably quicker. I am very pleased. Thank you both for your interest.

    Personal Hotspot menu entry missing.

    Hi TPoet. Thanks for that link. It reinforced what I had in my mind as the requirements to use Hotspot. Alas it did not trigger a thought about what I can change. My next move is to try the "Reset all settings" in Settings, after I do a backup.

    Personal Hotspot menu entry missing.

    Hi TPoet. Yes bluetooth is on in both devices. And I have restarted both several times. I also tried with VPN off, but still no luck. Perhaps it is time to re install the OS? Although I have the sinking feeling even that will not fix the issue.

    Personal Hotspot menu entry missing.

    Hi Scifan Yes I can. The nuisance is that first I need to find the iPhone somewhere in the house, then open the "Personal Hotspot" section, then turn it off wait a second and turn it on again. Wait whilst the iPad finds the WiFi then select it. OK that's not the end of the earth, but when the...

    Personal Hotspot menu entry missing.

    Hi scfian. Thanks for the prompt reply. The pic is not from my iPad because I cannot get that Personal Hotspot area any more. So I looked about and that is the only pic I could find showing the Personal Hotsopt entry, and it is close to what I used to get. I can assure you that for a very long...

    Personal Hotspot menu entry missing.

    Hello folks. I have iPad mini4 ios 12.1.1. I often hotspot from my cellular iPhone 6 ios 12.1.2 to my WiFi only iPad. For a long time I have not have any issues, now when I try to connect the iPad via the hotspot, I no longer get the entry in the iPad called "personal hotspot" with the...

    Mini 4 advantages

    Hi Doris. If your printer is Apple compatible you don't need to use a USB stick. If your printer is not Apple compatible you may still get it to print. Example I have an old Brother printer non Apple. But Brother has an app that allows it to print from an iPad. In my case I turn on WiFi and...

    Mini 4 advantages

    Hi Doris, you need to thank Giraman for the post with specs. If you buy another model just read or ask about tips to setup the new model, before you actually do it. Other posters have put up links to assist. If you still need help swapping files tween iPad and PC, ask again.

    Mini 4 advantages

    Hi Doris. I still have iPad Mini 2, I bet you will enjoy the Mini 4 even better. For memory expansion I use an Emtec device. It has two connectors, one the normal iPad charging connection and the other is a USB connector. So it is relatively easy to swap information between iPad and PC. As...

    Photos Grainy

    Hi Lady M. Apart from technical stuff, (screen resolution, pixals, file sizes, file types etc.) you need to compare apples with apples. Are the pics taken in the same lighting condtions? Both of you take a pic in the same place. Air drop to each other (to see what they look like on the other...

    Hi Thomas. I like the compromise of the iPad Mini. It is not too cumbersome to take out and when at home it mates nicely with an external keypad for fast typing and word processing. Just recently I mated it with my iPhone to enable it to send messages anywhere.

    ?

    Hi Thomas. I still use one, battery still good. Very pleased with it in spite of some weird Apple excentrics. If I could I would use it to replace my PC and use it as a "PC", but there are things I can only do on a PC. The PC is very handy for backing up the iPad, as the 5GB cloud does not cut...

    Hi Whitielli. About the tripod, I made a ipad holder by modifying a "bulldog" clip. See the pics. It attaches to a normal tripod as would a camera. The size of the clip is such that it holds the ipad firm without over tightly. Using this clip I have videod dozens of hours of sporting video, all...

    Hi Norm. If you did a backup before updating to 10.3.1, perhaps you can go back in time, if then OK, try another update.

    Ibooks menu

    Hi Norm. No help to you but for interest I checked my iBooks and the menu bar is still there. I use Mini iPad 2 with 10.3.1 Have you tried the reset option or maybe delete reinstall of iBooks, if it will delete that is?
