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've tried everything else we've covered previously in this chapter, and your iPhone, iPad or iPad touch is still acting weird. Or freezing up, or just not responding properly, the next thing to try is to reset your settings. Now for this example, I've rearranged some icons on my home screen and you'll see why momentarily. To reset your settings, go to Settings. General, and Reset. The top choice here is Reset all settings. Now, what this does is reset your preferences back to the way they were when you turned on your device for the first time.
But it won't delete any save data like text messages, contacts, photos in your photo library, your music and videos or any apps you've installed. All those things will not be touched. What it will do is wipe out potentially corrupt preferences and settings on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. So, tap Reset All Settings when you're ready. And you'll be asked to confirm that you really want to do this. And it will actually ask you to confirm again. They really want to make sure that you really want to do this. So tap Reset All Settings one more time. And then you'll see the Apple logo, and your device will restart.
Now that it's rebooted, let's go to the home screen again. And you can see that it kept all of my app icons exactly where they were, so I don't have to rearrange them now. You might notice that the screen is a little dimmer right now because the brightness settings have been readjusted. Some other things you might want to bear in mind, are that you'll have to reenter any passwords you might have stored for wireless networks you were previously able to automatically connect to. And if you use apps like Maps, you'll again be asked to allow the app and other apps like it to use your location information. And generally, you'll see all the types of messages that appear when you open apps for the first time. And hopefully you'll find that resetting your settings fix whatever issue it was you were having.
