iPad

iPad is an iOS-based line of tablet computers built around the device's multi-touch screen, including a virtual keyboard. The iPad includes built-in Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity on select models.

One of our members had this brilliant recommendation I thought should be seen here as well.


I'm headed to Alaska tomorrow to embark on a bucket list adventure - to see the Northern Lights.  Like most people who use their smartphone as their primary camera, I'm paranoid that something might happen and I'll lose my phone or the phone dies - with no backup evidence of this epic adventure.  And since I'll be in the middle of nowhere and my iPhone can't back up to the iCloud, I found this super cool device to offload my photos - making the Camera Roll less of an endless task.

HDR photos are the same size as a normal photo, they're just enhanced so they shouldn't affect storage unless you keep the original as well.

Even selecting optimized photo roll will use space on your phone.  It's just that the phone will modify the size of the cache according to how much space there is available on your device.  e.g. on my Android, Google Photos has a 500mb cache.

The title feels pretty click-baity.

If there isn't an actual way to change the priority, then why is that the title?

Great article. At my work, I inherited an iPhone from a former employee who had set up their personal account on there and Apple refused to do anything to help us even through we owned the phone. I had to go through several people to track down the former employee via Facebook and talk her into resetting the password so I could unlock the phone.

Thanks, William.  That sounds like an awful route to have to take to recover a company owned phone, but at least it worked!  Hopefully more folks are able to learn about this issue and prevent it from happening in the future.

What's a UDID?

If you're involved in developing, testing, or even reviewing an iOS application that's in beta, then at some point you may need to know the UDID for any iOS devices that you'll be testing on. What's the UDID? It stands for Unique Device Identifier, and much like it sounds, is a unique identifier for each and every iOS device. Knowing this number is crucial for granting a specific device permission to run an app that's still in development and not yet released to the public. This way, developers can ensure that their unreleased apps aren't ending up on devices they shouldn't!
 

OK, I've Just Been Asked for Mine

Great! Let's assume you've been invited as a beta tester for some cool new app. (Lucky you!) The developer has asked you for your iPhone or iPad's (or even an iPod Touch's) UDID so that they can set the provisioning profile that'll allow your device to run the beta version of their app. It's easy. Here's what you do:


Step 1: Connect Device to Computer

Connect the device to a computer that's running iTunes. Ideally, you've already got a computer that you synchronize with or backup your iDevice to. Use that one. (If not, then you'll need to get iTunes on a system that you can attach the device to. Just head over to http://www.apple.com/itunes/ to get the iTunes installer. It's ok, I'll wait.)


Step 2: Launch iTunes

If iTunes hasn't launched already (in …

Thanks for this.

Just for info you can also collect the Apple UUID from Windows' registry without iTunes installed - as the iPhone/iPad will identify itself via Plug'n'Play through the USB interface.

There are multiple registry entries but as an example:

[HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\WinUSB\Enum]"0"
="USB\VID_05AC&PID_12xx\<your 40 character UUID is here>"

"USB\VID_05AC&PID_12xx" relates to the Apple DeviceID so for example 129F would mean an iPad 2 (WiFi version) has been connected. (
See below for iPad/iPhone device codes)

The DeviceID and UUID are both used to check devices subscribed to beta projects by programmers.

This might be a useful adjunct to this piece if your readers can't for some reason install iTunes on the Windows device they have available to them.

iPhone/iPad DeviceIDs

12A8 	iPhone 5, 5s, all 6 variants
12A0 	iPhone 4s
129c	iPhone 4 (Verizon)
1297 	iPhone 4 (Telus)
1290 	iPhone Original
1292 	iPhone 3G
1294 	iPhone 3Gs
129A 	iPad
129F 	iPad 2 (WiFi)
12a2	iPad 2 (GSM)
12a3	iPad 2 (CDMA)

Thanks, MASQ! That's great info. I could definitely see that being useful if someone's in a situation where they can't get iTunes on the system available to them.

iPad in the Business – Quick Start Part 1


Getting Started with Active Sync Mail

Many people seem to have issues connecting their iOS device to their company Exchange Server and this article covers the steps for Active Sync configuration as well as a few tips and tricks from someone that worked with a high powered team with various expectations.  In this particular case I used an iPad 2 running iOS 6.1.3 against a MS Exchange 2007 SP3 server but the instructions are universal.

Please note that I am not covering Good, Iron Mountain or the providers of the sandpit environments.

Before you proceed, you will need your username and password for the company system, the server and domain details for the connection and been granted access to Active Sync by your System Admin Team.  Keep in mind that nuts and bolts are the same but companies often have enrollments to such services.  Those in smaller businesses may not have these headaches.

To start, follow the brief steps below.

1.      Tap Settings from the Home Screen (silver cogs) > Mail, Contacts and Calendar >Add Account > Microsoft Exchange.

2.      Complete the boxes are details in the screenshot below and tap done.  Please note that you may not be prompted for all of the information if your company has an auto-discovery configured.

3.   Assuming the information is correct, you will then have the option to select which items you wish to synchronize.

There are many out there who own an iPad but are frustrated by the lack of Flash support. This prevents many webpages from displaying their content correctly on the iPad .  In addition Flash games are not supported on the iPad either.  Regardless of your views regarding the future of Flash or the alternatives such as html5 that are available, Apple has made it clear that Flash support is not in the future for the iPad (http://www.apple.com/hotnews/thoughts-on-flash/).  So if you own an iPad and want to experience Flash, what are your options?

Of course you can get by without Flash but there will be some websites that just won’t display well.  Here are some ways to view Flash content on your iPad:


The first approach requires you jailbreak your iPad.  Then you are able to install an application called ‘Frash.’  This will allow Flash content to play in the Safari browser on the iPad.  But there are alternatives for those who do not want to go through the trouble (or risk) of the jailbreak. Most of these options utilize some version of a VNC or remote desktop.
Using one of the available remote desktop apps you can basically run your PC, Mac or Linux machine remotely on your iPad and use the native browser on your computer for the flash.  This requires a VNC program such as VNC Viewer ($9.99) or TeamViewer (free for …

I have Puffin on my iPad - video and audio are choppy.  Useless, in my opinion.

Thanks for this article - some other good ideas to try here.

Sure, Flash is passé, but until it's completely gone, we should be able to play it on an iPad!
