Discover how to get the most out of your iPhone or iPod touch, from making calls, browsing the web, managing your time, and getting around town to taking notes, shooting photos, and listening to music. In this course, author Garrick Chow shows how to perform all of these tasks and more, and introduces the enhancements built into iOS 6, including enhanced language support and commands for Siri, shared photo streams, and the new Reply with Message feature for handling incoming calls. The course also includes hands-on demonstrations on how to accurately type and efficiently use finger gestures, and offers tips for personalizing the setup of the iPhone and iPod touch. An extensive section on troubleshooting helps when the occasional glitch happen.
If you ever ran into an issue where a particular application freezes up, meaning the screen goes completely still and no amount of tapping, flicking or pinching causes anything to happen, you probably need to force the application to quit. To Force Quit an application hold down the Sleep/Wake button until you see the Slide to Power Off slider appear. Then release the Sleep/Wake button and press and hold the Home button.
After a few seconds the frozen app should quit and you'll be taken back to your Home screen. Again, use this technique if your screen is frozen and pressing the Home button doesn't seem to be doing anything. If you're in a situation where an app is acting up, but you can still get back to your Home screen, then you can Force Quit the app by then double-clicking the Home button to bring up the Multitask bar, then hold down on any of the apps in the Multitask bar until they start wiggling and then tap the red button on the app that's not working right to quit it. Press the Home button twice to return to the Home screen.
At this point you can try opening the app again to see if it's behaving better. If it's still giving you problems you might want to try restarting your device as we discussed in the previous movie.
