Airplay is an awesome feature that wirelessly sends the screen of your iOS device onto an Apple TV. The one downfall is that it does not support steaming to your computer. That’s where AirServer comes into play. By simply installing it, you gain the ability to also stream high quality video and audio from your iOS device to your Mac.

iOS 7.0.3 was released a few days ago and it was a much-needed update for Apple users. It brought back a few key features that were missing from iOS 7.
I have prepared a video above to highlight a few main features.
The features I go over in the video are.
- Search the Web and Wikipedia right from spotlight search.
- iCloud Keychain.
- Reduce motion.
When I first got my hands on iOS 7, I was a little worried and confused. I thought Apple had removed the ability to search in Safari on iOS 7. With the release of iOS 7, the function of searching in Safari on an iPad, iPhone and iPod has changed.
Before with previous versions of iOS, there was a search bar right beside the URL field. With iOS 7, the URL field and search field were merged together.
Nested folders or (folders within folders) was first discovered during the beta testing of iOS 7. It’s the ability to put a folder into another folder on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
How come I can’t simply drag one folder and place it in another folder?
- The reason you can’t simply do this is because this is a glitch that can be activated by using a few quick movements on your device.
- iOS 7 folders weren’t intended to be used in this way.
Now in iOS 7, when you create a new folder you can add as many apps into that folder as you want. It may sound kind of pointless to be adding a folder into another folder, but it’s a great way to hide some apps you may not like and tuck them away in a nested folder.
Anyone have the problem I have with ghost vibrations? Dictionary definition of Ghost Vibrations: The feeling of a phone vibrating in one’s pocket, without actually vibrating. Usually causing one to check phone, followed by a confused stare at the screen. The default vibration alerts can be bit short or not enough to actually grab your attention, in that case we can create our own custom vibrations.
An iOS device is a powerful device that only gets better the more you know about it. iPhones, iPad, and iPod were designed to be easy to use and figure out, and exploring all the features yourself can be one of the best things about owning a new device. If it is a new device or you are new the iOS world, I encourage you to dig deep into your iOS device and figure out all the neat little tricks and tweaks. In the meantime however, here is my list of 10 things every iOS owner should know and do.
Before we begin, I should apologize for the somewhat misleading title. I tried to keep it to just 10 tips, but I got a little carried away.
Surprisingly there is no simple switch to flick on your iOS device or Mac that auto-adds holidays to the Calendar app. That however doesn’t mean that there isn’t a free and simple solution.
I couple of years ago I actually spent money on an app from the App Store to import calendars to my Calendar app. Granted it was only $0.99, but still, I could be $0.99 richer right now. That being said, I’ve decided to pass on this little tip to all of you, not only to save you a bit of spare change but because a Calendar just isn’t complete until you add the Holidays to it.
