Get the most out of your new iPhone or iPad. In this course, Garrick Chow provides in-depth instruction on all aspects of the Apple iPhone and iPad: making and receiving calls, emailing, browsing the web, managing your time, getting around town, taking notes, shooting photos, and listening to music. Plus, learn how to install any one of the thousands of apps from the App Store and extend the functionality of your device. Garrick devotes time to the new features in iOS 7, including iCloud Keychain, Control Center, AirDrop, and new Photos organization. The course also includes hands-on demonstrations of how to accurately type and efficiently use finger gestures, and includes tips for setting up the iPhone and iPad so they behave as expected. We also include an extensive section on troubleshooting help when the occasional glitches happen.
In this chapter we're going to look at the music and video apps of IOS 7. Both apps work pretty much the same way across the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and they allow you to carry around a lot of music and video content to keep yourself entertained while you're out and about. Exactly how much depends on the capacity of your device and the size of your music and video files. But even the smallest capacity IOS device can hold hours of content. Now this chapter assumes that you've already synced your device with iTunes and copied the music and videos you want to it. If you don't know how to do this, go back and watch chapter three on syncing your device with your computer. Also, if you're using the iTunes match service, remember that although you may see your music collection on your device, you may have to tap songs or albums to download them. See the movie on iTunes match in chapter three if you haven't watched it already. Okay, I'll start by typing music on my iPhone. Now unless you are already playing music, you'll be taken to one of the five categories at the bottom of the screen. Depending on how you've set up your iPod or iPhone, you may see some different categories, but I currently have Radio, Playlists, Artists, Songs, and More. If you're on an iPad, you'll see eight categories down here instead of five. I'll show you how to use customize which buttons appear here in just a moment. But each one of these is a way of browsing through the music stored on your device. Radio is a brand new feature of iOS 7. If you are familiar with services like Spotify or Pandora, iTunes radio is in a similar vein. It's a streaming internet radio service where you can listen to preset stations, or create your own stations to customize the type of music you listen to. More on this in a bit. Playlists lets you browse the playlists you've created in sync from iTunes. Artists lets you search your library by the artist's name. And songs let you search by the song name. There's also a More category, where you'll find Albums, Audiobooks, Genres, Compilations, and Composers. These are just additional ways to find the content you're looking for. For instance, if you listen to a lot of classical music, you might find the Composers category more useful than the Artist category. You can customize which categories appear along the bottom of the screen by tapping Edit here in the More section. That reveals icons for all the available categories types. The ones that don't currently appear at the bottom of the screen are displayed in red. All you have to do is drag the ones that you want to the bottom of the screen. For instance, I'll drag Composers over Artists and it's immediately replaced. If I change my mind I just drag Artists back to Composers and it goes right back to where it was. Tap Done to close this area. Now, one other way to browse through the music on your iPhone or iPod, but not on the iPad, is to flip it into Landscape mode. That displays your music in the form of cover art for each of the albums.
You can flick left and right to browse through your collection. Tap a cover to view the songs on that album. You can tap a song to start it playing, or tap the cover to view all the albums again. And that's the gist of how to browse through your music on your IOS device. In upcoming movies, we'll look at selecting and playing your music and videos. As well as how to control Playback, and how to browse and purchase more content.
