iPhone How-To | iPhone Help
I was sent a question by a student in Canada named Judy who already had an iPad but just got an iPhone as well. She wrote:
“I lost the face time icon. I went to settings and it says I have it, but it’s not on my screen. I hope you know the answer to this.
I received a question from a student named Jerry who wrote:
“How do I access my scientific calculator as part of the regular calculator?”
It’s very easy — just turn the iPhone on its side. The phone should detect you’ve rotated it and will give you the portrait view.
I got a question from a student named Barry who wanted to know how to upload photos to the photo service Shutterfly.
He didn’t say in his email, but he may have tried to go to the company’s website to upload the photos and found he couldn’t do so from the phone the way he could from a computer.
I was sent a question from a student named Virginia who wanted to know if she could use iCloud on her computer, even though it wasn’t made by Apple.
Is it possible? Yes, it is, but you need special software which you can download for free.
How to download Basic Tips for iPhone, my app that teaches you how to use the iPhone in quick & easy video lessons. Many people don’t know how to install apps or use the App Store. Watch the video below to see step-by-step how to use the store to get this iPhone training app today:
In this lesson, a preview of my new app which teaches you how to use the iPhone with easy video lessons, we take a look at how to set up an iPhone to check your email. This lesson walks you through the steps for setting up what Apple refers to as an “other” email account, namely one given to you by your Internet service provider (cable, DSL, etc.) or by work, etc. — as opposed to how to set up email for Gmail, etc.
In this audio lesson I’ll be answering a question from someone who has an iPhone and is annoyed by the fact that their phone downloads emails they’ve already read on their computer.
“Currently it downloads the last 50 emails, whether I’ve already read them or not. I only want to see new ones on the iPhone. How can I configure this?”
I regularly answer computer questions on my computer training podcast (also available on iTunes or my basic computer training blog), but since this question was asked about someone’s phone, I figured I’d also post the audio lesson here.
I’ve been meaning for a while now to set up a new site for a project I’ve been working on — branching out from the basic computer training I’ve been providing for years now online (part of over 15 years’ experience helping people with computers and technology). On this site I’ll be posting on topics related to the Apple iPhone, and I’ll be sharing some of my new iPhone video tutorials.
