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.
If you ever run into an issue where a particular application freezes up, meaning the screen just goes completely still and no amount of tapping, flicking, or pinching causes anything to happen. Or if the app is not responding the way it should, you'll probably need to force the application to quit. For example, right now I'm trying to zoom out of this page in the Safari web browser, but pinching seems to be having no affect what so ever. To force quit an application, hold down the sleep/wake button until you see the Slide to Power Off slider appear, then release the 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.
You can use this technique if your screen is frozen and pressing the home button doesn't seem to be doing anything. Now if you're in a situation where an app is acting up, but you can still get back to your home screen, you can also try to force quit an app by then double clicking the home button to open the multitasking view. And then just click away the apps preview to quit it. 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 a previous movie.
