setup home sharing to apple tv

When you buy content from the iTunes store it is accessible from the Apple TV via iCloud without having to connect to your computer. However, when you convert the videos yourself to your iTunes Library those video will require that your Apple TV be able to connect with your iTunes Library, whether it be on a PC or Mac.

Setting up Home Sharing is different from simply using AirPlay. Instead of streaming your entire Mac screen to the Apple TV, it just streams the video or music. Also, there is no need to enable Airplay on your Mac and send the signal to your Apple TV. You can peruse the contents of your media collection from within the Apple TV, making finding that perfect Friday night movie easy to find from your couch.

search safari ipad

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.

iOS 7 hide folder inside folder

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.
