actions.</p>\n<p>Here are the gestures you need to know for Face ID iPhone models, along with their old-school (Touch ID) equivalents:</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Go Home: </strong>Swipe up from the bottom to return to the Home screen or to return to the <em>first</em> Home screen page from other Home screen pages.\n<ul>\n<li>Old-school equivalent: Press the Home button.</li>\n</ul>\n</li>\n<li><strong>Switch apps:</strong> Swipe up and pause without lifting your finger to invoke the app switcher. Or swipe right along the bottom of the screen to switch to the last app you used.\n<ul>\n<li>Old-school equivalent: Double-press the Home button.</li>\n</ul>\n</li>\n</ul>\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">To close a running app, swipe it upward in the App Switcher. Or use two fingers — place one finger on each app&#8217;s preview, and then swipe upward — to close two running apps, or three fingers to close three running apps.</p>\n<p>Here is how to maneuver through the iPhone&#8217;s touchscreen icons, buttons, and connections on all current iPhone models:</p>\n<ul>\n<li>Swipe up from the bottom of the screen (Face ID models) or press the Home button (Touch ID models) to return to the first Home screen page at any time.</li>\n<li>Flick a finger to scroll through music, pictures, emails, contacts, and more.</li>\n<li>Tap the screen to open apps, play songs, choose photos, and so on.</li>\n<li>Pinch and unpinch to enlarge web pages and pictures or make them smaller. The actions involve placing your thumb and index finger against the screen. Then, keeping the thumb in place, drag your index finger to pinch or unpinch. You can move both your thumb and finger if you prefer.</li>\n<li>Swipe the screen from top to bottom on the left side to open Notification Center; swipe from bottom to top to close it.</li>\n<li>Swipe the screen from top to bottom on the right side (Face ID) or from bottom to top (Touch ID) to open Control Center. Swipe in the opposite direction to close Control Center. Alternatively, simply tap above or below Control Center.</li>\n<li>Correct errors by long-pressing to display an insertion point and a magnification loupe, and then sliding your finger on the screen to place the insertion point exactly where you want to edit. Alternatively, long-press the spacebar until the keys go blank, and then use the keyboard area like a touchpad.</li>\n<li>Undo the last thing you did (usually) by swiping left with three fingers. Or to redo something you undid, swipe right with three fingers.</li>\n</ul>\n<p>Trust the virtual keyboard. The Predictive feature suggests word completions, while the Auto-Correction feature corrects many mistakes on the fly.</p>\n"},{"title":"Making a call on your iPhone","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>You have several options for making a phone call from your iPhone. First, tap the Phone icon on the Home screen, and then tap one of these tabs:</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Favorites:</strong> The iPhone equivalent of speed dialing; the list of people (and specific numbers) you call most often. Tap a favorite to call it. To add a contact to your Favorites list, tap the person&#8217;s name in the Contacts list, and then tap Add to Favorites. In the Add to Favorites pop-up panel, tap the type of favorite — Message, Call, Video, or Mail — and then tap the phone number or email address to use.</li>\n<li><strong>Recents:</strong> Tapping the Recents icon displays the iPhone call log. Recents displays a list of all recent calls made or received, as well as calls you missed. Tap a name to call that person.</li>\n<li><strong>Contacts:</strong> Scroll through the list of contacts until you find the person you want to call. Tap the person’s name and then tap the appropriate phone number (such as the Home number or the Mobile number).</li>\n<li><strong>Keypad:</strong> Manually dial on a virtual touchtone keypad.</li>\n<li><strong>Voicemail:</strong> Through Visual Voicemail, you can listen to voicemail messages in any order you want. To play back a voicemail, tap the name or number in question. Then tap the play/pause icon that shows up to the left of the name or number. Returning a call is as simple as tapping the Call Back button.</li>\n</ul>\n<p>Here are two more ways to make calls:</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Ask Siri.</strong> Press and hold down\n<ul>\n<li>The side button on iPhones with Face ID</li>\n<li>The Home button on iPhones with Touch ID</li>\n<li>The center button on most wired headsets</li>\n<li>Say “call” or “dial” followed by either the name of someone in your contacts or a phone number. Or if you have Hey Siri enabled (Settings → Siri &amp; Search → Listen For, and then tap either the “Siri” or “Hey Siri” button or the “Hey Siri” button), you can skip pressing and holding and just say the magic words.</li>\n</ul>\n</li>\n<li><strong>Use FaceTime.</strong> To start a FaceTime video chat from the Phone app, tap a contact’s name and then tap the FaceTime button. If there&#8217;s no FaceTime button, or if it appears dimmed and can’t be selected, that contact isn’t set up for FaceTime video.</li>\n</ul>\n<p>In the Phone app, you can long-press a contact and choose a quick action, which may include Call, Message, FaceTime, and Mail, depending on the information you have for that contact.</p>\n"},{"title":"Getting help when your iPhone acts up","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>Most of the time, your iPhone behaves itself. But every so often it might cause you a problem. Here’s a quick review of things you can try if your iPhone misbehaves.</p>\n<p>Start with the first step — suggestions in later steps are more drastic.</p>\n<ol>\n<li><strong>Restart your iPhone</strong>. For iPhones with Face ID, press the volume up button, press the volume down button, and then hold down the side button until the Apple logo appears. Then release the side button.For iPhones with Touch ID, press and hold down the top (or side) button and the Home button. When you see the Apple logo, release both buttons.</li>\n<li><strong>Force any frozen applications to quit</strong>. Swipe the app upward from the app switcher.</li>\n<li><strong>Reset the iPhone settings</strong>. Tap the Settings icon on your Home screen, and then tap General → Transfer or Reset iPhone → Reset  Reset All Settings. Resetting iPhone settings won’t erase your data, but you’ll probably have to change some settings afterwards.</li>\n<li><strong>Restore your iPhone</strong>. Connect your iPhone to your computer as though you were about to sync. Then select the iPhone in the iTunes source list (or Finder sidebar for macOS Catalina or later), and click the Restore button on the Summary tab or the General tab (Finder).</li>\n</ol>\n<p class=\"article-tips warning\">The last suggestion erases all your data and media and resets all your settings.</p>\n<p>Because your data and media (except photos you’ve taken as well as contacts, calendar events, and playlists you’ve created or modified since your last sync) still exist on your computer, you shouldn’t lose anything.</p>\n<p>Your next sync will take longer, and you will have to reset any settings you’ve changed since you purchased your iPhone. But your media and data files shouldn’t be affected.</p>\n<p>One last thing: If you’re using iCloud, photos you’ve taken and calendar events and new contacts you’ve added since your last sync should be in the cloud and should reappear after you restore.</p>\n<p>The only items in danger, at least in theory, are playlists you’ve created on your iPhone since your last sync. However, it wouldn’t hurt to let Finder (or iTunes) back up the contents of your iPhone before you click the Restore button.</p>\n"},{"title":"10 ways to have fun with Siri","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>Everyone loves Siri, the (usually) intelligent assistant inside our iPhones.

You can change Siri&#8217;s gender and accent anytime you like. Just tap Settings →  Siri &amp; Search → Siri Voice and amaze your friends by turning your Siri into an American, Australian, British, Indian, Irish, or South African (or, at least the voice of one.)</p>\n<p>And here’s one more bonus: Siri will gladly call you whatever you like.

Your iPhone doesn’t have to be connected to power.</li>\n<li>To enable the ability to speak commands to Siri, go to Settings → Siri → Listen for “Hey Siri” and toggle the switch on (green).</li>\n<li>Be reminded about an event or a task. For example, if you’re viewing a Calendar event, engage Siri and say “remind me about this” and it gets added to your Reminders app. You can also tell Siri when to remind you, if you’d like to set a specific time.</li>\n<li>Check out sports scores by asking Siri how your team did. You can ask “How did Notre Dame do yesterday?” or “What were last night’s NBA highlights?” Siri will give you the scores. You can even find rankings, what time and on what channel a sporting event is appearing, and more. Just ask!</li>\n<li>Let Siri end your calls for you; it comes in handy if you’re using headphones or earbuds and your phone is in your pocket. When you’re ready to end the call, simply say, “Hey, Siri, hang up” and you’re done. The only caveat is that the people you’re on the call with will hear you issue the command to Siri, but I don’t think they’ll mind.</li>\n<li>Open an app with a simple command. For example, say “Open Netflix.” The Netflix app will open (if it’s installed, of course).</li>\n<li>Convert measurements on the go. Ask something like “How many liters are in a gallon?” or “How many millimeters is 5.5 meters?” The inimitable Siri tells you in an instant.</li>\n<li>Tell Siri which song or artist you’d like to listen to, and it’ll happen. Say “Play Purple Rain” or “I’d like to listen to Fleetwood Mac.” The song or artist will begin playing. You could also say “Stop playing music” to pause the song.</li>\n<li>Siri can help you determine how much of a tip to leave your server. Say “How much is an 18 percent tip for a $34.36 bill?” Siri will promptly tell you to give $6.18.</li>\n</ul>\n<p>There is much, much more that Siri can do. Try asking real-world questions whenever you get the chance so you can see the neat tricks Siri can perform.</p>\n"},{"title":"News and weather apps for your iPhone","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>The News and Weather apps in iOS 17 for the iPhone are both good, but may not suit your needs, or you may prefer the way some third-party apps works.</p>\n<h2>News apps</h2>\n<p>Numerous third-party news apps are news aggregators (pulling articles from several sources) or are developed by specific news outlets exclusively for their own content.</p>\n<h3>Flipboard</h3>\n<p><a href=\"//apps.apple.com/us/app/flipboard-the-social-magazine/id358801284\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Flipboard</a> is an all-in-one app for accessing news and information based on your personal interests.

Today, you can see the newspaper&#8217;s famous graphics and charts via the USA Today app for iPhone. All the sections you love are there, including Life, Money, and Sports.</p>\n<h2>Weather apps</h2>\n<p>The Weather app in iOS 17 has really stepped up its game from previous versions, but the third-party apps listed here may provide a bit more in-depth information that some weather enthusiasts prefer.</p>\n<h3>AccuWeather</h3>\n<p><a href=\"//itunes.apple.com/us/app/accuweather-weather-for-life/id300048137?mt=8\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">AccuWeather</a> is an excellent app for digging deep into the latest weather news.

However, other apps on the market may help you handle your multimedia needs in ways that better suit your tastes and needs.</p>\n<h2>Paramount+</h2>\n<p>Paramount has a vast library of video files, most of which can be streamed via their <a href=\"//apps.apple.com/us/app/paramount/id530168168\">Paramount+ app</a>. You also have the option of adding Showtime to your subscription for just a few bucks more. Plus, if you can’t get enough Star Trek, you’ll find it all right here on the Paramount+ app.</p>\n<h2>Netflix</h2>\n<p>From their humble beginnings as a DVD-rental-by-mail company, Netflix has become one of the largest players in the entertainment business today. If you have a <a href=\"//itunes.apple.com/us/app/netflix/id363590051?mt=8\">Netflix</a> subscription, you can play the entire collection of videos that you’ve saved in your list, find new content, and even use AirPlay to play your video on your television via AppleTV.</p>\n<h2>Overcast</h2>\n<p>Apple’s Podcasts app in iOS 17 is good for downloading and listening to podcasts, but the <a href=\"//itunes.apple.com/us/app/overcast-podcast-player/id888422857?mt=8\">Overcast app</a> outshines it in ease-of-use and with intuitive settings. Overcast even lets you apply settings, such as playback speed and voice boost, to individual podcasts, maintaining different setting combinations for each.</p>\n<h2>Pandora</h2>\n<p><a href=\"//itunes.apple.com/us/app/pandora-free-music-radio/id284035177?mt=8\">Pandora</a>, one of the most popular music-streaming services for iOS, has been around almost since the first iPhone. Pandora allows you to create and customize your own radio stations, so you can play music of the same genre or by the same artist. You can also purchase any music you like with a direct link to the iTunes Store.</p>\n<h2>SoundCloud</h2>\n<p><a href=\"//itunes.apple.com/us/app/soundcloud-music-audio/id336353151?mt=8\">SoundCloud</a> claims to be the world’s largest music streaming service, boasting a catalogue of more than 135 million audio tracks. SoundCloud is a great service, but much of the catalogue is made up of up-and-coming (or completely unknown) artists. Don’t let that deter you. You can find some great music in the most unexpected places. SoundCloud also lets you see the music that your favorite artists like, which can lead you to discover wonderful tunes you might never have discovered otherwise.</p>\n<h2>Snapseed</h2>\n<p><a href=\"//itunes.apple.com/us/app/snapseed/id439438619?mt=8&amp;ign-mpt=uo%3D8\">Snapseed</a> is a must-have tool for photographers of any level. It’s an editor that’s easy enough to be used by rookies, yet powerful enough that professional photographers won’t be caught without it.</p>\n<h2>YouTube</h2>\n<p>YouTube used to be the best app around for watching silly cat videos and people falling down, but it’s now one of the most popular, and important, means of accessing video and musical entertainment on the web. Documentaries, full-length movies, music videos, and silly cat videos are waiting to be discovered when you download the <a href=\"//itunes.apple.com/us/app/youtube/id544007664?mt=8\">YouTube app for iOS</a>.</p>\n"}],"videoInfo":{"videoId":null,"name":null,"accountId":null,"playerId":null,"thumbnailUrl":null,"description":null,"uploadDate":null}},"sponsorship":{"sponsorshipPage":false,"backgroundImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"brandingLine":"","brandingLink":"","brandingLogo":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"sponsorAd":"","sponsorEbookTitle":"","sponsorEbookLink":"","sponsorEbookImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0}},"primaryLearningPath":"Explore","lifeExpectancy":"Two years","lifeExpectancySetFrom":"2024-10-31T00:00:00+00:00","dummiesForKids":"no","sponsoredContent":"no","adInfo":"","adPairKey":[]},"status":"publish","visibility":"public","articleId":288640},{"headers":{"creationTime":"2018-05-09T01:27:10+00:00","modifiedTime":"2024-09-13T18:58:39+00:00","timestamp":"2024-09-13T21:01:03+00:00"},"data":{"breadcrumbs":[{"name":"Technology","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33512"},"slug":"technology","categoryId":33512},{"name":"Electronics","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33543"},"slug":"electronics","categoryId":33543},{"name":"General Electronics","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33571"},"slug":"general-electronics","categoryId":33571}],"title":"How to Set Up a Raspberry Pi","strippedTitle":"how to set up a raspberry pi","slug":"set-raspberry-pi","canonicalUrl":"","网络搜引索擎调优系统":{"metaDescription":"Learn how to set up your Raspberry Pi computer, including all of the various parts you'll need to program it for your projects.","noIndex":0,"noFollow":0},"content":"Before you can fire up your Raspberry Pi and start building your own electronics projects, you need to do some basic setup work.

In most cases, the connection procedure involves two steps:\r\n<ol>\r\n \t<li>For a Wi-Fi connection, use the manufacturer’s app to give Alexa permission to connect to the device.</li>\r\n \t<li>Enable the manufacturer’s device skill to update Alexa with the voice commands needed to operate the device.</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >How to set up a smart home with Alexa</h2>\r\nIf your smart-home device is Wi-Fi-friendly, go to your mobile device app store and install the manufacturer’s app. Then follow these steps to get your Wi-Fi smart-home device set up in the app:\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_260935\" align=\"aligncenter\" width=\"535\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-260935\" src=\"/wp-content/uploads/alexa-smart-home-hub.jpg\" alt=\"Amazon Alexa\" width=\"535\" height=\"357\" /> Source: ©Shutterstock.com[/caption]\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 1. <strong>Plug in and, if required, turn on the smart-home device.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 2. <strong>Open the smart-home device manufacturer’s app.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 3. <strong>Initiate the procedure for setting up a new device.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">Look for a command named Add or Add [<em>manufacturer</em>] Device (where <em>manufacturer</em> is the name of the company), or just a big plus sign (+).</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">The setup routine will tell the device to broadcast its Wi-Fi network.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 4. <strong>Open your mobile device’s Wi-Fi settings and look for the device’s Wi-Fi network.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 5. <strong>Tap the device network to connect to it.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 6. <strong>When the connection is complete, return to the device app.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">The app automatically detects the new network and uses the connection to set up the device. This usually involves giving the device a name. You’ll often have to set up an account with the manufacturer, as well.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 7. <strong>The app will usually ask for your Wi-Fi credentials, which enables the device to connect to and operate over your network.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">Having the device on your network is also how Alexa discovers and operates the device, so this step is important.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 8. <strong>If you see a notice asking whether you want to upgrade the smart-home device firmware, by all means tap Yes or Allow or Update or whatever button answers in the affirmative.</strong></p>\r\nWith your smart-home device installed, you can view it and rename it if you so desire in the Alexa app. Just tap the Devices icon to open the Devices screen, and from there, you can change the settings for your device.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" ><a name=\"_Toc527554694\"></a>Discover Smart-Home Devices Using an Alexa skill</h2>\r\nIf you’re not using an Alexa device that includes a smart-home hub (such as the Echo Plus and second-generation Echo Show), then you usually need to upgrade Alexa to work with your smart-home device. You upgrade Alexa by enabling the device manufacturer’s Alexa <em>skill</em><em>.</em> This not only lets Alexa discover the device but also upgrades Alexa with the voice commands that enable you operate the device.\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 1. <strong>Install the manufacturer’s app and use it to get your smart-home device on your Wi-Fi network.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 2.<strong> In the Alexa app, tap Devices.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 3. <strong>Tap the Add button (+) that appears in the top-right corner.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 4. <strong>Tap Add Device.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">The Alexa app displays icons for some popular brands and some device categories.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 5. <strong>Tap the category that fits your device, and then tap the manufacturer.

An Alexa device such as an Echo or Echo Spot is an example of such a controller. Devices Alexa can control (like thermostats, speakers, TVs, and so on) just have to be compatible.\r\n\r\n<div class=\"video-player-organism\"></div>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">You must make sure you get smart-home devices that are compatible with your controller, so be sure to buy items that are Alexa compatible.</p>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\"><a href=\"//coursofppt.com/computers/computer-networking/smart-homes-for-dummies-cheat-sheet/\">Smart-home devices</a> are all the rage. Using apps on smart phones or simple voice commands from Alexa, you can control light bulbs, thermostats, garage door openers, security cameras, and so much more.</p>\r\nTo get your Alexa device to connect to and operate smart-home devices, you'll be using either your home’s Wi-Fi network or a direct Bluetooth connection. In most cases, the connection procedure involves two steps:\r\n<ol>\r\n \t<li>For a Wi-Fi connection, use the manufacturer’s app to give Alexa permission to connect to the device.</li>\r\n \t<li>Enable the manufacturer’s device skill to update Alexa with the voice commands needed to operate the device.</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >How to set up a smart home with Alexa</h2>\r\nIf your smart-home device is Wi-Fi-friendly, go to your mobile device app store and install the manufacturer’s app. Then follow these steps to get your Wi-Fi smart-home device set up in the app:\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_260935\" align=\"aligncenter\" width=\"535\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-260935\" src=\"/wp-content/uploads/alexa-smart-home-hub.jpg\" alt=\"Amazon Alexa\" width=\"535\" height=\"357\" /> Source: ©Shutterstock.com[/caption]\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 1. <strong>Plug in and, if required, turn on the smart-home device.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 2. <strong>Open the smart-home device manufacturer’s app.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 3. <strong>Initiate the procedure for setting up a new device.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">Look for a command named Add or Add [<em>manufacturer</em>] Device (where <em>manufacturer</em> is the name of the company), or just a big plus sign (+).</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">The setup routine will tell the device to broadcast its Wi-Fi network.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 4. <strong>Open your mobile device’s Wi-Fi settings and look for the device’s Wi-Fi network.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 5. <strong>Tap the device network to connect to it.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 6. <strong>When the connection is complete, return to the device app.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">The app automatically detects the new network and uses the connection to set up the device. This usually involves giving the device a name. You’ll often have to set up an account with the manufacturer, as well.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 7. <strong>The app will usually ask for your Wi-Fi credentials, which enables the device to connect to and operate over your network.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">Having the device on your network is also how Alexa discovers and operates the device, so this step is important.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 8. <strong>If you see a notice asking whether you want to upgrade the smart-home device firmware, by all means tap Yes or Allow or Update or whatever button answers in the affirmative.</strong></p>\r\nWith your smart-home device installed, you can view it and rename it if you so desire in the Alexa app. Just tap the Devices icon to open the Devices screen, and from there, you can change the settings for your device.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" ><a name=\"_Toc527554694\"></a>Discover Smart-Home Devices Using an Alexa skill</h2>\r\nIf you’re not using an Alexa device that includes a smart-home hub (such as the Echo Plus and second-generation Echo Show), then you usually need to upgrade Alexa to work with your smart-home device. You upgrade Alexa by enabling the device manufacturer’s Alexa <em>skill</em><em>.</em> This not only lets Alexa discover the device but also upgrades Alexa with the voice commands that enable you operate the device.\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 1. <strong>Install the manufacturer’s app and use it to get your smart-home device on your Wi-Fi network.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 2.<strong> In the Alexa app, tap Devices.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 3. <strong>Tap the Add button (+) that appears in the top-right corner.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 4. <strong>Tap Add Device.</strong></p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">The Alexa app displays icons for some popular brands and some device categories.</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"> 5. <strong>Tap the category that fits your device, and then tap the manufacturer.

Check here for some <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/article/business-careers-money/business/marketing/snapchat-lingo-need-know-social-media-marketing-strategy-240549/\">Snapchat lingo</a>.\r\n\r\nLaunch Snapchat and let’s get started.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >How to use Snapchat Lenses</h2>\r\nIf you have friends who use Snapchat, you have likely seen a familiar face transformed into an adorable dog. It’s fun to turn yourself into a friendly pup with a playful tongue and adorable ears. You accomplish this with Snapchat’s Lenses.\r\n\r\nFollow these steps to use Lenses:\r\n<ol>\r\n\t<li>Switch the camera to selfie mode.</li>\r\n\t<li>Snap a picture.Wait for the white mapping to appear on your face.</li>\r\n\t<li>Once recognized, scroll through the circular icons at the bottom.</li>\r\n\t<li>Choose your preferred Lens.</li>\r\n\t<li>Follow any instructions provided.Some Lenses direct you to do things like “raise your eyebrows.” Doing so usually adds an effect included with a particular Lens.</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n<a href=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/snapchat-lenses.png\"><img class=\"aligncenter wp-image-242666 size-full\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/snapchat-lenses.png\" alt=\"Snapchat Lenses\" width=\"535\" height=\"127\" /></a>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Snapchat is constantly switching up its Lenses. Don’t be surprised to see new Lenses come and go on a regular basis.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >How to use Snapchat Filters</h2>\r\nSnapchat also offers Filters for your photos. These overlay your photos with tints and other words. Many of the options use the location of your phone to offer geographically appropriate backgrounds.

The <em>dock</em> contains the Phone, Safari, Messages, and Music app icons by default, though you can swap out one app for another. You can add new apps to populate as many as 14 additional Home screens, for a total of 15 Home screens. The dock appears on every Home screen.\r\n\r\nOther icons appear above the dock. Different icons appear in this area on each Home screen. You can also nest apps in folders, which gives you the ability to store even more apps on your iPhone, depending on your phone's memory.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Treat the iPhone screen carefully. The newest models have <em>Ceramic Shield</em>, Apple's toughest screen ever for the iPhone, but it's still made of glass and will break if an unreasonable amount of force is applied.</p>\r\nThe iPhone uses <em>touchscreen technology:</em> When you swipe your finger across the screen or tap it, you’re providing input to the device just as you do to a computer by using a mouse or keyboard.\r\n\r\nYou'll read more about the touchscreen in the next task, but for now, go ahead and play with it — really, you can’t hurt anything. Use the pads of your fingertips (not your fingernails) and try the following:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Tap the Settings icon.</strong> The various settings categories appear, as shown in the figure below. To return to the Home screen, press the Home button or, if you have an iPhone without a Home button, swipe up from the very bottom edge of your screen.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Swipe a finger from right to left on the Home screen.</strong> This action moves you to the next Home screen.The little white dots at the bottom of the screen, above the dock icons, indicate which Home screen is displayed. If you see the search field instead, just lightly move your finger on your iPhone’s screen and the dots will appear in its place.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>To experience the screen rotation feature, hold the iPhone firmly while turning it sideways.</strong> The screen flips to the horizontal (or landscape) orientation, if the app you’re in supports it.To flip the screen back, just turn the device so that it’s short side is up again (portrait mode). Some apps force iPhone to stay in one orientation or the other.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Drag your finger down from the very top edge of the screen to reveal such items as notifications, reminders, and calendar entries.</strong>Drag up from the very bottom edge of the Home screen to hide these items. Then drag up (iPhones with a Home button) or swipe down from the top-right corner to the center (iPhone without a Home button) to display Control Center, which contains commonly used controls and tools.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_296483\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"550\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-296483\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/iphone-settings.jpg\" alt=\"Image showing the Settings menu on an iPhone 14\" width=\"550\" height=\"1190\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />The Settings menu on the iPhone 14[/caption]\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Say Hello to Tap and Swipe</h2>\r\nYou can use several methods for getting around and getting things done in iPhone by using its multi-touch screen, including\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Tap once.</strong> To open an application on the Home screen, choose a field (such as a search box), choose an item in a list, use an arrow to move back or forward one screen, or follow an online link, tap the item once with your finger.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Tap twice.</strong> Use this method to enlarge or reduce the display of a web page or to zoom in or out in the Maps app.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Pinch.</strong> As an alternative to the tap-twice method, you can pinch your fingers together or move them apart on the screen (see the figure below) when you’re looking at photos, maps, web pages, or email messages to quickly reduce or enlarge them, respectively. This method allows you to grow or contract the screen to a variety of sizes rather than a fixed size, as with the double-tap method.Use a three-finger tap to zoom your screen even larger or use multitasking gestures to swipe with four or five fingers. This method is handy if you have vision challenges.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Drag to scroll (known as <em>swiping</em>).</strong> When you touch your finger to the screen and drag to the right or left, the screen moves (see the figure below). Swiping to the left on the Home screen, for example, moves you to the next Home screen. Swiping up while reading an online newspaper moves you down the page; swiping down moves you back up the page.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Flick.</strong> To scroll more quickly on a page, quickly flick your finger on the screen in the direction you want to move.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Tap the status bar.</strong> To move quickly to the top of a list, a web page, or an email message, tap the status bar at the top of the iPhone screen. (For some sites, you have to tap twice to get this to work.)</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Press and hold down.</strong> If you’re using Notes or Mail or any other application that lets you select text, or if you’re on a web page, pressing and holding down on text selects a word and displays editing tools that you can use to select, cut, or copy and paste the text.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_296484\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-296484\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/iphone-touchscreen-commands.jpg\" alt=\"Images showing the pinching and swiping gestures on an iPhone Multi-Touch screen\" width=\"630\" height=\"703\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />The pinch gesture (left) and swiping gesture (right) on the iPhone 14 Multi-Touch screen[/caption]\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">When you rock your phone backward or forward, the background moves as well (a feature called <em>parallax).</em> You can disable this feature if it makes you seasick. From the Home screen, tap Settings @@--> Accessibility @@--> Motion and then turn on the Reduce Motion setting by tapping the toggle switch (it turns green when the option is enabled).</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Bezel gestures</h2>\r\nYour iPhone enables you to perform <em>bezel gestures,</em> which involve sliding left to right from the very outer edge of the phone on the glass to go backward and sliding right to left to go forward in certain apps.\r\n\r\nYou can try these methods now:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Tap the Safari icon on the dock at the bottom of any iPhone Home screen to display the Safari web browser.</li>\r\n \t<li>Tap a link to move to another page.</li>\r\n \t<li>Double-tap the page to enlarge it; then pinch your thumb and finger together on the screen to reduce its size.</li>\r\n \t<li>Drag one finger up and down the page to scroll.</li>\r\n \t<li>Flick your finger quickly up or down on the page to scroll more quickly.</li>\r\n \t<li>Press and hold down your finger on a word that isn’t a link. (Links take you to another location on the web.) The word is selected, and the tools shown in the figure below are displayed. (You can use this tool to either get a definition of a word or copy it.)</li>\r\n \t<li>Press and hold down your finger on a link or an image. A menu appears (shown in the figure below) with commands that you select to open the link or picture, open it in a new tab, open it in a tab group, download a linked file, add it to your reading list, copy it, or share it. If you press and hold down on an image, the menu also offers the Add to Photos command. Tap outside the menu to close it without making a selection.</li>\r\n \t<li>Position your thumb and finger slightly apart on the screen and then pinch your thumb and finger together to reduce the page. With your thumb and finger already pinched together on the screen, move them apart to enlarge the page.</li>\r\n \t<li>Press the Home button or swipe up from the bottom of the screen (iPhone without a Home button) to go back to the Home screen.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_296481\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-296481\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/iphone-bezel-gestures.jpg\" alt=\"Images showing how to select words and open links and pictures on an iPhone 14 touchscreen\" width=\"630\" height=\"682\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Selecting a word (left) on an iPhone 14, and opening a link or picture (right)[/caption]","description":"The first time you turn on your iPhone, it will probably have been activated and registered by your cellular carrier or Apple, depending on whom you’ve bought it from.

If you see the search field instead, just lightly move your finger on your iPhone’s screen and the dots will appear in its place.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>To experience the screen rotation feature, hold the iPhone firmly while turning it sideways.</strong> The screen flips to the horizontal (or landscape) orientation, if the app you’re in supports it.To flip the screen back, just turn the device so that it’s short side is up again (portrait mode). Some apps force iPhone to stay in one orientation or the other.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Drag your finger down from the very top edge of the screen to reveal such items as notifications, reminders, and calendar entries.</strong>Drag up from the very bottom edge of the Home screen to hide these items. Then drag up (iPhones with a Home button) or swipe down from the top-right corner to the center (iPhone without a Home button) to display Control Center, which contains commonly used controls and tools.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_296483\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"550\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-296483\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/iphone-settings.jpg\" alt=\"Image showing the Settings menu on an iPhone 14\" width=\"550\" height=\"1190\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />The Settings menu on the iPhone 14[/caption]\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Say Hello to Tap and Swipe</h2>\r\nYou can use several methods for getting around and getting things done in iPhone by using its multi-touch screen, including\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Tap once.</strong> To open an application on the Home screen, choose a field (such as a search box), choose an item in a list, use an arrow to move back or forward one screen, or follow an online link, tap the item once with your finger.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Tap twice.</strong> Use this method to enlarge or reduce the display of a web page or to zoom in or out in the Maps app.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Pinch.</strong> As an alternative to the tap-twice method, you can pinch your fingers together or move them apart on the screen (see the figure below) when you’re looking at photos, maps, web pages, or email messages to quickly reduce or enlarge them, respectively. This method allows you to grow or contract the screen to a variety of sizes rather than a fixed size, as with the double-tap method.Use a three-finger tap to zoom your screen even larger or use multitasking gestures to swipe with four or five fingers. This method is handy if you have vision challenges.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Drag to scroll (known as <em>swiping</em>).</strong> When you touch your finger to the screen and drag to the right or left, the screen moves (see the figure below).

All models come in a variety of colors to suit everyone’s taste.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297962\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297962\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/ipad-models.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"630\" height=\"420\" /> ©Apple, Inc.[/caption]\r\n\r\nAll models come either with Wi-Fi only (so you access a Wi-Fi network for Internet access) or with Wi-Fi + Cellular for connecting to the Internet through Wi-Fi or a cellular network (as your cellphone does).\r\n\r\nThe iPad models also differ in available memory and price based on that memory (prices are accurate as of this writing and are subject to change):\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad Pro 11-inch:</strong> Wi-Fi models come in 128GB for $799, 256GB for $899, 512GB for $1,099, 1TB for $1,499, and 2TB for $1,899; Wi-Fi + Cellular models of each memory configuration cost $200 more than their Wi-Fi–only counterparts.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad Pro 12.9-inch:</strong> Wi-Fi models come in 128GB for $1,099, 256GB for $1,199, 512GB for $1,399, 1TB for $1,799, and 2TB for $2,199; Wi-Fi + Cellular models of each memory configuration cost $200 more than their Wi-Fi–only counterparts.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad Air:</strong> Wi-Fi models come in 64GB for $599 and 256GB for $749; Wi-Fi + Cellular models come in 64GB for $749 and 256GB for $899.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad (ninth generation):</strong> Wi-Fi models come in 64GB for $329 and 256GB for $479; Wi-Fi + Cellular models come in 64GB for $459 and 256GB for $609.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad (tenth generation):</strong> Wi-Fi models come in 64GB for $449 and 256GB for $599; Wi-Fi + Cellular models come in 64GB for $599 and 256GB for $749.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad mini:</strong> The Wi-Fi model comes in 64GB for $499 and 256GB for $649, and the Wi-Fi + Cellular model comes in 64GB for $649 and 256GB for $799.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nFinally, the iPad models vary in screen quality and resolution, camera quality, and so on. Logically, the bigger the iPad, the bigger the price and (usually) the higher the quality.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >How much storage do you want?</h2>\r\nStorage is a measure of how much information — for example, movies, photos, and software applications (apps) — you can store on a computing device. Storage can also affect your iPad’s performance when handling such tasks as streaming favorite TV shows from the web or downloading music.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\"><em>Streaming</em> refers to playing video or music content from the web (or from other devices) rather than playing a file stored on your iPad. You can enjoy a lot of material online without ever storing its full content on your iPad.</p>\r\nYour storage options with the various iPad models range from 64 gigabytes (GB) to 2 terabytes (TB), which is equivalent to 2,000GB. You must choose the right amount of storage because you can’t open up the device and add more components as you typically can with a desktop computer. However, Apple has thoughtfully provided iCloud, a service you can use to store content on the Internet.\r\n\r\nHow much storage is enough for your iPad? Here’s a guideline:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>If you regularly work with large media files, such as movies or TV shows, you might need 512GB or higher. For example, if you shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second, that will take roughly 1GB of storage space for every two-and-a-half minutes of footage. In light of this fact, at least 1TB of storage may be more appealing if you shoot a lot of video.</li>\r\n \t<li>If you like lots of media, such as movies or TV shows, you may need at least 256GB.</li>\r\n \t<li>For most people who manage a reasonable number of photos, download some music, and watch heavy-duty media, such as movies online, 128GB is probably sufficient.</li>\r\n \t<li>If you simply want to check email, browse the web, and write short notes to yourself, 64GB is likely plenty.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nDo you know how big a gigabyte (GB) is? Consider this: Just about any computer you buy today comes with a minimum of 256GB of storage. Computers have to tackle larger tasks than iPads, so that number makes sense.\r\n\r\nThe iPad, which uses a technology called flash storage for storing data, is meant (to a great extent) to help you experience online media and email; it doesn’t have to store much because it pulls lots of content from the Internet. In the world of storage, 64GB for any kind of storage is puny if you keep lots of content (such as audio, video, and photos) on the device.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Using the iPad with a computer and Internet</h2>\r\nAlthough you can use your iPad on its own without any Internet or Wi-Fi access and without a computer to pair it with, it's easier if you have Internet access and a computer that you can (occasionally) use with your iPad.\r\n<h3>Basic Internet access for your iPad</h3>\r\nYou need to be able to connect to the Internet to take advantage of most iPad features. If you have an Apple ID, you can have an iCloud account, Apple’s online storage service, to store and share content online, and you can use a computer to download photos, music, or applications from non-Apple online sources (such as stores, sharing sites, or your local library) and transfer them to your iPad through a process called syncing.\r\n\r\nYou can also use a computer or iCloud to register your iPad the first time you start it, although you can have the folks at the Apple Store handle registration for you if you have an Apple Store nearby. If you don’t have a store nearby, visit this <a href=\"//www.apple.com/shop/help\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Apple Help page</a> for assistance.\r\n\r\nYou can set up your iPad without an Internet connection and without going to an Apple Store: The best way to find out more information is to <a href=\"//support.apple.com/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">contact Apple Support</a> through an Internet connection on another device, or at a public library or Internet cafe.\r\n\r\nYou can use your iPad without owning a computer and just use public Wi-Fi hotspots to go online (or a cellular connection, if you have such a model). To go online using a Wi-Fi–only iPad and to use many of its built-in features at home, however, you need to have a home Wi-Fi network available.\r\n<h3>Pair your iPad with a computer</h3>\r\nFor syncing with a computer, Apple’s iPad User Guide recommends that you have:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>A Mac or PC with a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port and one of these operating systems:</li>\r\n \t<li>macOS version 10.11.6 (El Capitan) or newer</li>\r\n \t<li>Windows 10 or newer</li>\r\n \t<li>iTunes 12.8 or newer on a Mac running macOS El Capitan (10.11.6) through macOS Mojave (10.14.6), Finder on Mac’s running macOS Catalina (10.15) and newer, and iTunes 12.12 or newer on a PC, available at the <a href=\"//search.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZContentLink.woa/wa/link?path=download\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iTunes Store</a> or via the Microsoft Store</li>\r\n \t<li>An Apple ID</li>\r\n \t<li>Internet access</li>\r\n \t<li>An iCloud account</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nApple has set up its iTunes software and the iCloud service to give you two ways to manage content for your iPad — including movies, music, or photos you’ve downloaded — and to specify how to sync your calendar and contact information.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">There are a lot of tech terms to absorb here (iCloud, iTunes, syncing, and so on). My book <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/book/technology/electronics/tablets-e-readers/ipads/ipad-for-seniors-for-dummies-281742/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><em>iPad For Seniors For Dummies, 2023-2024 Edition</em></a> covers all of these things.</p>\r\n\r\n<h3>Wi-Fi Only or Wi-Fi + Cellular?</h3>\r\nYou use <strong>Wi-Fi</strong> to connect to a wireless network at home or at other places, such as an Internet cafe, a library, a grocery store, or any public transportation that offers Wi-Fi. This type of network uses short-range radio to connect to the Internet; its range is reasonably limited, so if you leave home or walk out of the coffee shop, you can’t use it anymore. (These limitations may change, however, as towns install community-wide Wi-Fi networks.)\r\n\r\n<strong>Cellular</strong> technologies allow an iPad to connect to the Internet via a widespread cellular network. You use it in much the same way that you make calls from just about anywhere with your cellphone.\r\n\r\nA Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad costs more than the basic Wi-Fi–only model, but it also includes GPS (Global Positioning System) service, which pinpoints your location so that you can get more accurate location information and driving directions.\r\n\r\nAlso, to use your cellular network in the United States, you must pay a monthly fee. The good news is that no carrier requires a long-term contract, which you probably had to have when you bought your cellphone and its service plan.\r\n\r\nYou can pay for a connection during the month you visit your grandkids or friends, for example, and get rid of it when you arrive home. Features, data allowance (which relates to accessing email or downloading items from the Internet, for example), and prices vary by carrier and could change at any time, so visit each carrier’s website to see what it offers.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">Note that if you intend to stream videos (watch them on your iPad from the Internet), you can eat through your data plan allowance quickly.</p>\r\nHow do you choose? If you want to wander around the woods or town — or take long drives with your iPad continually connected to the Internet to get step-by-step navigation info from the Maps app — get Wi-Fi + Cellular and pay the additional costs.\r\n\r\nDon’t bother with cellular if you’ll use your iPad mainly at home or via a Wi-Fi hotspot (a location where Wi-Fi access to the Internet is available, such as a local coffee shop or bookstore). You can find lots of hotspots at libraries, restaurants, hotels, airports, and other locations.\r\n\r\nIf you have a Wi-Fi–only iPad, you can use the hotspot feature on a smartphone, which allows the iPad to use your phone’s cellular connection to go online if you have a data-use plan that supports hotspot use with your phone service carrier. Check out the features of your phone to turn on the hotspot feature.","description":"The most obvious differences among iPad models (several models are shown below) are their size and weight, with the Pro being biggest, followed by iPad Air, then iPad, and finally the smallest, iPad mini. All models come in a variety of colors to suit everyone’s taste.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297962\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297962\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/ipad-models.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"630\" height=\"420\" /> ©Apple, Inc.[/caption]\r\n\r\nAll models come either with Wi-Fi only (so you access a Wi-Fi network for Internet access) or with Wi-Fi + Cellular for connecting to the Internet through Wi-Fi or a cellular network (as your cellphone does).\r\n\r\nThe iPad models also differ in available memory and price based on that memory (prices are accurate as of this writing and are subject to change):\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad Pro 11-inch:</strong> Wi-Fi models come in 128GB for $799, 256GB for $899, 512GB for $1,099, 1TB for $1,499, and 2TB for $1,899; Wi-Fi + Cellular models of each memory configuration cost $200 more than their Wi-Fi–only counterparts.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad Pro 12.9-inch:</strong> Wi-Fi models come in 128GB for $1,099, 256GB for $1,199, 512GB for $1,399, 1TB for $1,799, and 2TB for $2,199; Wi-Fi + Cellular models of each memory configuration cost $200 more than their Wi-Fi–only counterparts.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad Air:</strong> Wi-Fi models come in 64GB for $599 and 256GB for $749; Wi-Fi + Cellular models come in 64GB for $749 and 256GB for $899.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad (ninth generation):</strong> Wi-Fi models come in 64GB for $329 and 256GB for $479; Wi-Fi + Cellular models come in 64GB for $459 and 256GB for $609.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad (tenth generation):</strong> Wi-Fi models come in 64GB for $449 and 256GB for $599; Wi-Fi + Cellular models come in 64GB for $599 and 256GB for $749.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>iPad mini:</strong> The Wi-Fi model comes in 64GB for $499 and 256GB for $649, and the Wi-Fi + Cellular model comes in 64GB for $649 and 256GB for $799.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nFinally, the iPad models vary in screen quality and resolution, camera quality, and so on. Logically, the bigger the iPad, the bigger the price and (usually) the higher the quality.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >How much storage do you want?</h2>\r\nStorage is a measure of how much information — for example, movies, photos, and software applications (apps) — you can store on a computing device. Storage can also affect your iPad’s performance when handling such tasks as streaming favorite TV shows from the web or downloading music.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\"><em>Streaming</em> refers to playing video or music content from the web (or from other devices) rather than playing a file stored on your iPad. You can enjoy a lot of material online without ever storing its full content on your iPad.</p>\r\nYour storage options with the various iPad models range from 64 gigabytes (GB) to 2 terabytes (TB), which is equivalent to 2,000GB. You must choose the right amount of storage because you can’t open up the device and add more components as you typically can with a desktop computer. However, Apple has thoughtfully provided iCloud, a service you can use to store content on the Internet.\r\n\r\nHow much storage is enough for your iPad? Here’s a guideline:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>If you regularly work with large media files, such as movies or TV shows, you might need 512GB or higher. For example, if you shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second, that will take roughly 1GB of storage space for every two-and-a-half minutes of footage. In light of this fact, at least 1TB of storage may be more appealing if you shoot a lot of video.</li>\r\n \t<li>If you like lots of media, such as movies or TV shows, you may need at least 256GB.</li>\r\n \t<li>For most people who manage a reasonable number of photos, download some music, and watch heavy-duty media, such as movies online, 128GB is probably sufficient.</li>\r\n \t<li>If you simply want to check email, browse the web, and write short notes to yourself, 64GB is likely plenty.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nDo you know how big a gigabyte (GB) is? Consider this: Just about any computer you buy today comes with a minimum of 256GB of storage. Computers have to tackle larger tasks than iPads, so that number makes sense.\r\n\r\nThe iPad, which uses a technology called flash storage for storing data, is meant (to a great extent) to help you experience online media and email; it doesn’t have to store much because it pulls lots of content from the Internet. In the world of storage, 64GB for any kind of storage is puny if you keep lots of content (such as audio, video, and photos) on the device.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Using the iPad with a computer and Internet</h2>\r\nAlthough you can use your iPad on its own without any Internet or Wi-Fi access and without a computer to pair it with, it's easier if you have Internet access and a computer that you can (occasionally) use with your iPad.\r\n<h3>Basic Internet access for your iPad</h3>\r\nYou need to be able to connect to the Internet to take advantage of most iPad features. If you have an Apple ID, you can have an iCloud account, Apple’s online storage service, to store and share content online, and you can use a computer to download photos, music, or applications from non-Apple online sources (such as stores, sharing sites, or your local library) and transfer them to your iPad through a process called syncing.\r\n\r\nYou can also use a computer or iCloud to register your iPad the first time you start it, although you can have the folks at the Apple Store handle registration for you if you have an Apple Store nearby. If you don’t have a store nearby, visit this <a href=\"//www.apple.com/shop/help\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Apple Help page</a> for assistance.\r\n\r\nYou can set up your iPad without an Internet connection and without going to an Apple Store: The best way to find out more information is to <a href=\"//support.apple.com/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">contact Apple Support</a> through an Internet connection on another device, or at a public library or Internet cafe.\r\n\r\nYou can use your iPad without owning a computer and just use public Wi-Fi hotspots to go online (or a cellular connection, if you have such a model). To go online using a Wi-Fi–only iPad and to use many of its built-in features at home, however, you need to have a home Wi-Fi network available.\r\n<h3>Pair your iPad with a computer</h3>\r\nFor syncing with a computer, Apple’s iPad User Guide recommends that you have:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>A Mac or PC with a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port and one of these operating systems:</li>\r\n \t<li>macOS version 10.11.6 (El Capitan) or newer</li>\r\n \t<li>Windows 10 or newer</li>\r\n \t<li>iTunes 12.8 or newer on a Mac running macOS El Capitan (10.11.6) through macOS Mojave (10.14.6), Finder on Mac’s running macOS Catalina (10.15) and newer, and iTunes 12.12 or newer on a PC, available at the <a href=\"//search.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZContentLink.woa/wa/link?path=download\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">iTunes Store</a> or via the Microsoft Store</li>\r\n \t<li>An Apple ID</li>\r\n \t<li>Internet access</li>\r\n \t<li>An iCloud account</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nApple has set up its iTunes software and the iCloud service to give you two ways to manage content for your iPad — including movies, music, or photos you’ve downloaded — and to specify how to sync your calendar and contact information.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">There are a lot of tech terms to absorb here (iCloud, iTunes, syncing, and so on). My book <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/book/technology/electronics/tablets-e-readers/ipads/ipad-for-seniors-for-dummies-281742/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><em>iPad For Seniors For Dummies, 2023-2024 Edition</em></a> covers all of these things.</p>\r\n\r\n<h3>Wi-Fi Only or Wi-Fi + Cellular?</h3>\r\nYou use <strong>Wi-Fi</strong> to connect to a wireless network at home or at other places, such as an Internet cafe, a library, a grocery store, or any public transportation that offers Wi-Fi. This type of network uses short-range radio to connect to the Internet; its range is reasonably limited, so if you leave home or walk out of the coffee shop, you can’t use it anymore. (These limitations may change, however, as towns install community-wide Wi-Fi networks.)\r\n\r\n<strong>Cellular</strong> technologies allow an iPad to connect to the Internet via a widespread cellular network. You use it in much the same way that you make calls from just about anywhere with your cellphone.\r\n\r\nA Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad costs more than the basic Wi-Fi–only model, but it also includes GPS (Global Positioning System) service, which pinpoints your location so that you can get more accurate location information and driving directions.\r\n\r\nAlso, to use your cellular network in the United States, you must pay a monthly fee. The good news is that no carrier requires a long-term contract, which you probably had to have when you bought your cellphone and its service plan.\r\n\r\nYou can pay for a connection during the month you visit your grandkids or friends, for example, and get rid of it when you arrive home. Features, data allowance (which relates to accessing email or downloading items from the Internet, for example), and prices vary by carrier and could change at any time, so visit each carrier’s website to see what it offers.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips remember\">Note that if you intend to stream videos (watch them on your iPad from the Internet), you can eat through your data plan allowance quickly.</p>\r\nHow do you choose? If you want to wander around the woods or town — or take long drives with your iPad continually connected to the Internet to get step-by-step navigation info from the Maps app — get Wi-Fi + Cellular and pay the additional costs.\r\n\r\nDon’t bother with cellular if you’ll use your iPad mainly at home or via a Wi-Fi hotspot (a location where Wi-Fi access to the Internet is available, such as a local coffee shop or bookstore). You can find lots of hotspots at libraries, restaurants, hotels, airports, and other locations.\r\n\r\nIf you have a Wi-Fi–only iPad, you can use the hotspot feature on a smartphone, which allows the iPad to use your phone’s cellular connection to go online if you have a data-use plan that supports hotspot use with your phone service carrier. Check out the features of your phone to turn on the hotspot feature.","blurb":"","authors":[{"authorId":9260,"name":"Dwight Spivey","slug":"dwight-spivey","description":" <p><b>Bob LeVitus </B>has written nearly 100 reference books on Apple technologies.

If you’re one of these folks, you’ll be glad to know that Apple offers some handy accessibility features for your iPad.\r\n\r\nTo make your screen easier to read, you can use the Magnifier app, adjust the brightness, or change the wallpaper. You can also set up the VoiceOver feature to read onscreen elements out loud.\r\n\r\nVoice Control, Numbers, and Grids are welcome accessibility features to help you navigate more easily. And you can turn on or off a slew of features, including Zoom, Invert Colors, Speak Selection, and Large Type.\r\n\r\nIf hearing is your challenge, you can do the obvious thing and adjust the system volume. The iPad also allows you to use mono audio (useful when you’re wearing headphones) and to set an LED to flash when an alert sounds.\r\n\r\nFeatures that help you deal with physical and motor challenges include an AssistiveTouch feature for those who have difficulty using the iPad touchscreen, and Switch Control for working with adaptive accessories. Also included are the Home Button and Call Audio Routing settings, which allow you to adjust how quickly you have to tap the iPad screen to work with features, and whether you can use a headset or speaker to answer calls.\r\n\r\nThe Guided Access feature helps if you have difficulty focusing on one task. It also provides a handy mode for showing presentations of content in settings where you don’t want users to flit off to other apps, as in school or a public kiosk.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">This article covers some of the accessibility features of iPadOS 16. For more comprehensive coverage, check out the book <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/book/technology/electronics/tablets-e-readers/ipads/ipad-for-seniors-for-dummies-281742/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><em>iPad For Seniors For Dummies, 2023-2024 Edition</em></a>.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >How to use the Magnifier app on an iPad</h2>\r\nThe Magnifier app uses your iPad’s camera to help you magnify objects. Magnifier is considered an accessibility feature, but almost everyone needs a magnifier at one time or another. To use Magnifier:\r\n<ol>\r\n \t<li>Tap the Magnifier app icon to open it. By default, the app resides on the second Home screen.</li>\r\n \t<li>Point your iPad’s camera at the object you want to magnify.</li>\r\n \t<li>Drag the magnification slider (shown in the figure below) to increase or decrease magnification.</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297972\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297972\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/ipad-magnifier-app.jpg\" alt=\"Photo showing how the Magnifier app works\" width=\"630\" height=\"268\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Using the Magnifier app's slider[/caption]\r\n\r\nBy default, Magnifier offers an advanced controls pane (see above) with more controls to help customize your experience. You can select which camera to use, adjust brightness and contrast levels, and apply color filters. You can also take freeze frames (to freeze something onscreen momentarily) by tapping the large round button.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Freeze frames are not saved to Photos. They disappear into the ether when you close the Magnifier app.</p>\r\nTap the customize controls icon (gear) in the lower left of the advanced controls pane, and then tap Settings in the resulting menu to open the Customize Controls dialog, shown in the figure below. From here, you can determine which controls appear in the advanced controls pane.\r\n\r\nTo remove a control, tap the red circle containing the minus sign (–) found to the left of the control name; then tap the Remove button that appears on the right. To add a control you’ve removed, simply tap the green circle containing the plus sign (+).\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297974\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297974\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/ipad-customize-controls-window.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing the iPad's Customize Controls window\" width=\"630\" height=\"473\" /> ©Apple, Inc.<br />The iPad's Customize Controls window[/caption]\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">You can combine magnification with your iPad's portability so that you can reach up to (or behind) an object and magnify something that is not only too small to see otherwise but also out of view entirely.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >How to set up VoiceOver on an iPad</h2>\r\nVoiceOver reads the names of screen elements and settings to you, but it also changes the way you provide input to the iPad. In Notes, for example, you can have VoiceOver read the name of the Notes buttons to you, and when you enter notes, it reads words or characters that you’ve entered. It can also tell you whether such features as Auto-Correction are on.\r\n\r\nVoiceOver is even smarter in iPadOS 16 than in previous incarnations. It includes support for apps and websites that may not have built-in accessibility support. It can read descriptions of images in apps and on the web, and it can identify and speak text it finds in images.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297977\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297977\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/ipad-voiceover-accessibility.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing the iPad Accessibility options, including VoiceOver\" width=\"630\" height=\"514\" /> ©Apple, Inc.<br />Selecting VoiceOver in the Accessibility menu[/caption]\r\n\r\nTo turn on VoiceOver, follow these steps:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Tap the Settings icon on the Home screen.</li>\r\n \t<li>In Settings, tap Accessibility.</li>\r\n \t<li>In the Accessibility pane, tap VoiceOver.</li>\r\n \t<li>In the VoiceOver pane, shown in the figure above, tap the VoiceOver switch to turn on this feature (the button becomes green).</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips\">With VoiceOver on, you must first single-tap to select an item such as a button, which causes VoiceOver to read the name of the button to you. Then you double-tap the button to activate its function.</p>\r\n\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Tap the VoiceOver Practice button to select it and then double-tap the button to open VoiceOver Practice. Practice using gestures (such as pinching or flicking left), and VoiceOver tells you what action each gesture initiates.</li>\r\n \t<li>Tap the Done button and then double-tap the same button to return to the VoiceOver dialog.</li>\r\n \t<li>Tap the Verbosity button once and then double-tap to open its options:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Tap the Speak Hints switch and then double-tap the switch to turn the feature on (or off). VoiceOver speaks the name of each tapped item.</li>\r\n \t<li>Tap once and then double-tap the VoiceOver button in the upper-left corner of the Verbosity window to go back to the VoiceOver screen.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">You can change the language that VoiceOver speaks. In General settings, tap Language & Region, tap iPad Language, and then select another language. However, this action also changes the language used for labels on Home icons and various settings and fields in iPad. Be careful with this setting, lest you choose a language you don’t understand by accident and have a difficult time figuring out how to change it back.</p>\r\n\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">If you would like VoiceOver to speak descriptions of images in apps or on the web, swipe up with three fingers to scroll down and then tap and double-tap VoiceOver Recognition, tap and double-tap Image Descriptions, and finally tap and double-tap the Image Descriptions switch to toggle the setting on (green).</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Don’t ignore the Sensitive Content Output setting in the Image Descriptions page. If the content of an image is something you’d like to keep everyone in the room from hearing, select any option other than Speak.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>Return to the main VoiceOver screen.</li>\r\n \t<li>If you want VoiceOver to read words or characters to you (for example, in the Notes app), scroll down (use a three-finger swipe to do so), tap and double-tap Typing, and then tap and double-tap Typing Feedback.</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">In the Typing Feedback dialog, tap and then double-tap to select the option you prefer in both the Software Keyboards section and the Hardware Keyboards section.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">The Words option causes VoiceOver to read words to you but not individual characters you type, such as the dollar sign ($). The Characters and Words option causes VoiceOver to read both the individual characters as you type them and each word as you complete it.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>Press the Home button or swipe up from the bottom of the screen (iPad models without a Home button) to return to the Home screen.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nYou can use the Accessibility Shortcut setting to help you more quickly turn the VoiceOver, Zoom, Switch Control, Grayscale, AssistiveTouch, or Invert Colors features on and off. In the Accessibility screen, tap Accessibility Shortcut (near the very bottom of the screen).\r\n\r\nIn the screen that appears, choose what you want three presses of the Home button (or top button, for iPads without a Home button) to activate. Now three presses with a single finger on the Home button or top button (depending on your iPad model) provide you with the option you selected wherever you go in iPad.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >How to use VoiceOver on an iPad</h2>\r\nAfter VoiceOver is turned on (see preceding section), you need to figure out how to use it. I won’t kid you — using it is awkward at first, but you’ll get the hang of it.\r\n\r\nHere are the main onscreen gestures you should know how to use:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Tap an item to select it.</strong> VoiceOver then speaks its name.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Double-tap the selected item.</strong> This action activates the item.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Flick three fingers.</strong> It takes three fingers to scroll around a page with VoiceOver turned on.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nThe first time my iPad locked when using VoiceOver, I had no idea how to unlock it. Luckily, I found the answer by consulting Apple’s support site from a computer. If your iPad has a Home button, just press it to unlock — simple.\r\n\r\nHowever, if your iPad doesn’t have a Home button, you need to look at your iPad (for Face ID to recognize you) and then slowly move your finger up from the bottom of the screen until you hear two tones, which indicate that your screen is unlocked.\r\n<p class=\"article-tip tip\">If tapping with two or three fingers is difficult, try tapping with one finger from one hand and one or two from the other. When double- or triple-tapping, you have to perform these gestures as quickly and as precisely as you can for them to work.</p>\r\nThe table below provides additional gestures to help you use VoiceOver. If you want to use this feature often, I recommend the VoiceOver section of the iPad online User Guide, which goes into great detail about using VoiceOver. You can find the User Guide on <a href=\"//support.apple.com/manuals/iPad\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Apple Support's iPad Manuals page</a>.\r\n\r\nOnce you're on the iPad Manuals page, just click the model of iPad or the version of iPad OS you have to read its manual. You can also get an Apple Books version of the manual through the <a href=\"//www.apple.com/apple-books/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Apple Books app</a> in its Book Store.\r\n<h3>VoiceOver Gestures</h3>\r\n<table>\r\n<tbody>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td><strong>Gesture</strong></td>\r\n<td><strong>Effect</strong></td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Flick right or left</td>\r\n<td>Select the next or preceding item</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Tap with two fingers</td>\r\n<td>Stop or continue speaking the current item</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Flick two fingers up</td>\r\n<td>Read everything from the top of the screen</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Flick two fingers down</td>\r\n<td>Read everything from the current position</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Flick three fingers up or down</td>\r\n<td>Scroll one page at a time</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Flick three fingers right or left</td>\r\n<td>Go to the next or preceding page</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Tap three fingers</td>\r\n<td>Speak the scroll status (for example, line 20 of 100)</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Flick four fingers up or down</td>\r\n<td>Go to the first or last element on a page</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Flick four fingers right or left</td>\r\n<td>Go to the next or preceding section (as on a web page)</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n</tbody>\r\n</table>\r\nCheck out some of the settings for VoiceOver, including a choice for Braille, Language Rotor for making language choices, the ability to navigate images, and a setting to have iPad speak notifications.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >How to change additional vision settings</h2>\r\nSeveral Vision features are simple settings that you can turn on or off after you tap Settings, tap Accessibility:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Zoom:</strong> The Zoom feature enlarges the contents displayed on the iPad screen when you double-tap the screen with three fingers. The Zoom feature works almost everywhere in iPad: in Photos, on web pages, on your Home screens, in your Mail, in Music, and in Videos.

If you’re one of these folks, you’ll be glad to know that Apple offers some handy accessibility features for your iPad.\r\n\r\nTo make your screen easier to read, you can use the Magnifier app, adjust the brightness, or change the wallpaper. You can also set up the VoiceOver feature to read onscreen elements out loud.\r\n\r\nVoice Control, Numbers, and Grids are welcome accessibility features to help you navigate more easily. And you can turn on or off a slew of features, including Zoom, Invert Colors, Speak Selection, and Large Type.\r\n\r\nIf hearing is your challenge, you can do the obvious thing and adjust the system volume. The iPad also allows you to use mono audio (useful when you’re wearing headphones) and to set an LED to flash when an alert sounds.\r\n\r\nFeatures that help you deal with physical and motor challenges include an AssistiveTouch feature for those who have difficulty using the iPad touchscreen, and Switch Control for working with adaptive accessories. Also included are the Home Button and Call Audio Routing settings, which allow you to adjust how quickly you have to tap the iPad screen to work with features, and whether you can use a headset or speaker to answer calls.\r\n\r\nThe Guided Access feature helps if you have difficulty focusing on one task. It also provides a handy mode for showing presentations of content in settings where you don’t want users to flit off to other apps, as in school or a public kiosk.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">This article covers some of the accessibility features of iPadOS 16. For more comprehensive coverage, check out the book <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/book/technology/electronics/tablets-e-readers/ipads/ipad-for-seniors-for-dummies-281742/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><em>iPad For Seniors For Dummies, 2023-2024 Edition</em></a>.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >How to use the Magnifier app on an iPad</h2>\r\nThe Magnifier app uses your iPad’s camera to help you magnify objects. Magnifier is considered an accessibility feature, but almost everyone needs a magnifier at one time or another. To use Magnifier:\r\n<ol>\r\n \t<li>Tap the Magnifier app icon to open it. By default, the app resides on the second Home screen.</li>\r\n \t<li>Point your iPad’s camera at the object you want to magnify.</li>\r\n \t<li>Drag the magnification slider (shown in the figure below) to increase or decrease magnification.</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297972\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297972\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/ipad-magnifier-app.jpg\" alt=\"Photo showing how the Magnifier app works\" width=\"630\" height=\"268\" /> ©John Wiley & Sons, Inc.<br />Using the Magnifier app's slider[/caption]\r\n\r\nBy default, Magnifier offers an advanced controls pane (see above) with more controls to help customize your experience. You can select which camera to use, adjust brightness and contrast levels, and apply color filters. You can also take freeze frames (to freeze something onscreen momentarily) by tapping the large round button.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Freeze frames are not saved to Photos. They disappear into the ether when you close the Magnifier app.</p>\r\nTap the customize controls icon (gear) in the lower left of the advanced controls pane, and then tap Settings in the resulting menu to open the Customize Controls dialog, shown in the figure below. From here, you can determine which controls appear in the advanced controls pane.\r\n\r\nTo remove a control, tap the red circle containing the minus sign (–) found to the left of the control name; then tap the Remove button that appears on the right. To add a control you’ve removed, simply tap the green circle containing the plus sign (+).\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297974\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297974\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/ipad-customize-controls-window.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing the iPad's Customize Controls window\" width=\"630\" height=\"473\" /> ©Apple, Inc.<br />The iPad's Customize Controls window[/caption]\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">You can combine magnification with your iPad's portability so that you can reach up to (or behind) an object and magnify something that is not only too small to see otherwise but also out of view entirely.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >How to set up VoiceOver on an iPad</h2>\r\nVoiceOver reads the names of screen elements and settings to you, but it also changes the way you provide input to the iPad. In Notes, for example, you can have VoiceOver read the name of the Notes buttons to you, and when you enter notes, it reads words or characters that you’ve entered. It can also tell you whether such features as Auto-Correction are on.\r\n\r\nVoiceOver is even smarter in iPadOS 16 than in previous incarnations. It includes support for apps and websites that may not have built-in accessibility support. It can read descriptions of images in apps and on the web, and it can identify and speak text it finds in images.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_297977\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-297977\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/ipad-voiceover-accessibility.jpg\" alt=\"Screenshot showing the iPad Accessibility options, including VoiceOver\" width=\"630\" height=\"514\" /> ©Apple, Inc.<br />Selecting VoiceOver in the Accessibility menu[/caption]\r\n\r\nTo turn on VoiceOver, follow these steps:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Tap the Settings icon on the Home screen.</li>\r\n \t<li>In Settings, tap Accessibility.</li>\r\n \t<li>In the Accessibility pane, tap VoiceOver.</li>\r\n \t<li>In the VoiceOver pane, shown in the figure above, tap the VoiceOver switch to turn on this feature (the button becomes green).</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p class=\"article-tips\">With VoiceOver on, you must first single-tap to select an item such as a button, which causes VoiceOver to read the name of the button to you.
