“Hey Siri, get me a Lyft to SFO”

Talking to Siri is an easier, faster way to get things done. It’s always with you — on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV — ready to help throughout your day. Ask Siri to set an alarm or a destination. Book a ride or a table. Send a payment or a love note. Even change the lighting in your room. And the more you use Siri, the better it knows what you need at any moment. Just say it, and Siri does it.

How to Run MacOS Sierra in a Virtual Machine for Free, the Easy Way


How to Run MacOS Sierra in a Virtual Machine for Free, the Easy Way

Run Mac OS in Virtual Machine on a Maccdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/macos-virtual-machine-mac-300×188.jpg 300w, cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/macos-virtual-machine-mac-768×482.jpg 768w, cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/macos-virtual-machine-mac-900×565.jpg 900w” sizes=”(max-width: 610px) 100vw, 610px” class=”” style=”max-width: 100%; margin: 0.5em auto; display: block; height: auto;”>

Advanced Mac users may find it useful to run macOS or Mac OS X in a virtual machine atop their existing Mac operating system. Creating a virtual machine for Mac OS is now easier than ever before, and we’ll show you how to set up easy Mac virtual machines on a Mac.


For some quick background, virtualization allows you to run another operating system in a confined virtual machine atop an existing operating system through an application layer. This means there is no disk partitioning involved, the virtualized operating system runs just like any other application on your computer. We have covered this broad topic many times before for purposes like running Windows 10 on a Mac with a VM, to running Ubuntu Linux in VirtualBox, to Snow Leopard in a VM, and others. In the guide here, we will be creating a Macintosh virtual machine for running Mac OS on top of Mac OS, which can be helpful for testing out different apps and operating system versions, amongst other purposes.

How to Create a Mac OS Virtual Machine with Parallels Lite

For running macOS in a virtual machine we will use the free Parallels Lite app for Mac, beyond that you will need a MacOS installer either downloaded from the App Store, from a USB install drive, ISO, or elsewhere.

  1. First, get Parallels Desktop Lite from the Mac App Store, it’s free to download*
  2. Download Parallels Lite from Mac App Store

  3. Download a Mac OS installer application from the App Store, or have one available on a USB drive or elsewhere on the Mac (in the example here we are using the macOS Sierra download from the App Store)
  4. Launch Parallels Desktop Lite and choose “Linux Only”, the Free option then click Continue
  5. Choose the free option to install MacOS in virtual machine

  6. Choose “Install Windows or another OS from a DVD or image file” from the available options and click Continue
  7. Choose other disk image

  8. Parallels Lite will scan the hard drive for Mac OS installers and operating system ISO files, choose “Install macOS” and click Continue (choose “Locate Manually” and navigate to the installer if it did not find it automatically)
  9. Select the Mac OS installer

  10. Click Continue to create a new disk image file for the virtual machine
  11. Choose to create new disk virtual machine for Mac OS

  12. Give the virtual machine a name and a location to store the image file, then Continue again
  13. Name and place the Mac virtual machine

  14. At the Virtual Machine Configuration screen, choose Continue to go with the default configuration of 2 CPUs, 2GB RAM, and the default disk space
  15. Create the Mac OS virtual machine

    • Optionally click on “Configure” to manually adjust CPU, memory, and disk space of the virtual machine you are setting up

    Optionally configure the Mac virtual machine specs

  16. The virtual machine will boot and load the Mac OS installer file selected earlier, now choose to “Install Mac OS” to perform a clean install** of Mac system software within the virtual machine
  17. Install macOS in the virtual machine

  18. Go through the normal installation process, when compete the virtual machine will boot up and you will be running a virtualized Mac OS installation atop your existing MacOS
  19. Mac OS running in a virtual machine on Mac

That’s all there is to it, when finished the Mac will be running another version of MacOS in within the Parallels virtual machine. Easy! You can go full screen and use it full time if you want, or keep it in window mode.

In the walkthrough here we installed macOS Sierra into a virtual machine atop Mac OS Sierra, but you could also use it to install other versions of Mac OS including beta releases, El Capitan, Mavericks, and theoretically just about any other Mac system software release that you have available as an installer file, iso file, or other disk image.

You boot and shut down the Mac virtual machine by launching and quitting the Parallels Desktop Lite app, which will manage the virtual machine and offer power options directly.

* Parallels Desktop Lite is free to download and use for the purposes described here, additional features and operating system support can be unlocked through in-app purchases but that is not necessary for running a Mac OS virtual machine. Another option for Windows and Linux is to use VirtualBox, which is free for every purpose.

** You can also choose to restore from a time machine backup in the MacOS setup screen if you want to replicate an existing Mac installation for testing purposes.

While we have covered many virtualization and virtual machine tips and tricks before, this Parallels Lite approach offers a simple way to run Mac OS or Mac OS X within a virtual machine, and it’s free. A big thanks to our friend Keir at MacKungFu for discovering the Parallels Desktop Lite app has this functionality.

Happy virtualizing! Let us know in the comments if you have any particularly useful tips, tricks, or recommendations about running Mac OS in a VM.

How to connect incompatible accessories to HomeKit using Homebridge | iMore


How to connect incompatible accessories to HomeKit using Homebridge

Wish you could have a house full of HomeKit-enabled products? Homebridge might be able to help with that!

If you’re tired of waiting for your favorite home automation products to get HomeKit support, you might try Homebridge! Homebridge is a NodeJS server that acts as a HomeKit-enabled bridge, linking up non-HomeKit-enabled products to your HomeKit setup. Once you’ve set up a Homebridge server, you can download plugins for non-HomeKit-enabled devices in order to access them with the iOS Home app and control them using your voice with Siri.

We’re going to proceed through the tutorial assuming you want to install Homebridge on your Mac. You can also install Homebridge on Windows, Raspberry Pi, and other devices, but I’ve found the macOS installation process to be fairly straightforward and user-friendly.

Caveats and warnings

Before we dig in to Homebridge, there’s some stuff we need to talk about. Firstly, HomeKit-enabled products are such a small subset of the home automation market for a reason: Apple is very serious about compatibility and security.

HomeKit-enabled products have to go through rounds of testing and adhere to certain security guidelines. The same can’t be said for non-HomeKit-enabled products. Secondly, Homebridge and its accessory plugins are created and maintained by a community of developers — not a company.

If you choose to install Homebridge, proceed with caution and be mindful of what you choose to install on your computer and your devices. Homebridge requires some fussing with code and interaction with Terminal; if you’re uncomfortable with either of those things, it’s best not to proceed with this tutorial.

Lastly, don’t forget to back up your devices; if you mess something up along the way, it’s far easier to roll back changes than having to do a fresh install of macOS.

How to install Homebridge on your Mac

  • The prerequisites
  • Create the NodeJS server
  • Set up the configuration file
  • Understand the configuration file
  • How to install plugins

The prerequisites

  1. Make sure you have Xcode installed on your Mac. It’s free in the Mac App Store — here’s a link to download it.
  2. Download and install Node.js (which comes with the NPM package manager). It’s free — here’s a link to download it.

    Note: Installing Node.js is very straightforward. You’ll install it like any other non-Mac-App-Store application: Download, double click on the file, and follow along with the installation guide.

Create the NodeJS server

Here’s where we’re going to start working with Terminal. You’ll be typing in (or copy-pasting code) to the command line. Follow along step-by-step to properly install Homebridge.

  1. Launch Spotlight by pressing the following keyboard shortcut: Command ⌘ + Space bar.
  2. Start typing in Terminal. When the app appears in Spotlight, you can press Enter.
  3. Once Terminal’s up and running, enter the following to install Homebridge globally:

    sudo npm install -g --unsafe-perm homebridge

  4. Homebridge will be installed using the NPM package manager. Wait until the process is complete.
  5. Type homebridge into Terminal to launch it.
  6. You should see the following message:

    No plugins found. See the README for information on installing plugins.

    That means you’ve successfully installed Homebridge on your Mac!

  7. Quit Homebridge by pressing the following keyboard shortcut: Control ⌃ + C.

Note: If you have trouble installing Homebridge on your Mac, check out the Homebridge support page or visit the Homebridge Slack to get help from the developers.

Set up the configuration file

Homebridge requires two things to add a new accessory to your HomeKit setup: a plugin (more on those in a bit) and an entry in the Homebridge configuration file. We need to create the configuration file before proceeding.

  1. Open up a Finder window and press the following keyboard shortcut: Shift ⇧ + Command ⌘ + G to open up the Go to Folder dialog.
  2. Paste the following path into the Go to Folder dialog:

    /usr/local/lib/node_modules/homebridge and press Enter on the keyboard.

  3. Copy the file called config-sample.json to your Desktop.
  4. Open up a Finder window and press the following keyboard shortcut: Shift ⇧ + Command ⌘ + G to open up the Go to Folder dialog.
  5. Paste the following path into the Go to Folder dialog:

    ~/.homebridge and press Enter on the keyboard.

  6. Drag the config-sample.json file from your Desktop to the .homebridge folder.
  7. Rename the file config.json (delete the -sample portion).

Great work! You’ve installed the configuration file in the proper location. Before we get a little more familiar with the configuration file, you’ll need to download a plain text editor. TextEdit on the Mac is great, but it’s been known to mess up the configuration by changing quotes and apostrophes to “smart quotes” and “smart apostrophes” which is a big no-no for the configuration file. Homebridge suggests the Atom text editor. It’s what I use to edit the Homebridge configuration and it works well!

Understand the configuration file

Open up the Homebridge configuration file (the one you copied to the following location ~/.homebridge) in the Atom text editor. You should see four groups of information: bridge, description, accessories, and platforms.

  • Bridge: This is information used to describe your bridge (like a Philips Hue or Lutron bridge). You can change its name and the HomeKit pin.
  • Description: This is a description of your bridge and the various plugins you’ve installed. You can edit the entire text portion.
  • Accessories: These are individual, bridgeless accessories you’ve connected to your bridge (like a smart switch or plug).
  • Platforms: These are accessories that are typically connected through a bridge (like Philips Hue or Lutron Caséta).

Homebridge will launch just fine with these faux accessories and platforms in place, but I’ve found it’s best to delete them so you can start fresh when you install real plugins. You’ll want to leave the accessories and platforms categories in place — just delete the data inside of the categories.

When you’ve cleaned out your file, it should look like this:

{

"bridge": {

"name": "Homebridge",

"username": "CC:22:3D:E3:CE:30",

"port": 51826,

"pin": "031-45-154"

},

"description": "This is an example configuration file with one fake accessory and one fake platform. You can use this as a template for creating your own configuration file containing devices you actually own.",

"accessories": [ ],

"platforms": []

}

How to install plugins

Homebridge plugins serve as the bridge between non-HomeKit-enabled accessories and the Homebridge server. The plugins speak the language of your home automation accessories and translate your iOS Home app and Siri commands. You can find plugins on NPM; all Homebridge plugins begin with the text homebridge-. I’ll walk you through the installation of a plugin for the TP-Link HS105 Smart Wi-Fi Plug Mini. The installation process is exactly the same for all NPM Homebridge plugins, so you need only to find the plugin that corresponds with your product and follow along!

  1. Visit the NPM site by going to this link. The link will take you to a search query for Homebridge plugins.
  2. Start to type in hs100 until you see the homebridge-hs100 NPM plugin. Click on it.
  3. Underneath the Installation section, look for the text that tells you how to install it.
  4. Open up Terminal and enter the following:

    npm install -g homebridge-hs100

  5. This will install the TP-Link Homebridge plugin, so wait for the process to complete.

  6. Head back to the plugin page and look in the Configuration section. This will show you the text you need to enter into your Homebridge configuration file.
  7. Open up the Homebridge configuration file (the one you copied to the following location ~/.homebridge) in the Atom text editor.
  8. Enter the configuration text in the proper location and save your file. If you’re installing the TP-Link plugin, your configuration file should look like this:

{

"bridge": {

"name": "Homebridge",

"username": "CC:22:3D:E3:CE:30",

"port": 51826,

"pin": "031-45-154"

},

"description": "This is an example configuration file with one fake accessory and one fake platform. You can use this as a template for creating your own configuration file containing devices you actually own.",

"accessories": [],

"platforms": [

{

"platform": "Hs100"

}

]

}

How to connect Homebridge to your HomeKit house

Alright, we’ve got Homebridge installed, we’ve got a plugin ready to go, and we’re ready to get Homebridge up and running! Here’s how you add Homebridge to HomeKit and start controlling your accessories.

  1. Launch Terminal on the Mac.
  2. Type homebridge and press Enter.
  3. Homebridge should launch and begin to load up platforms and plugins.
  4. Head to your iOS device and launch the Home app.
  5. Tap the Add button in the top right corner of the screen (looks like a plus sign).
  6. Tap Add Accessory.
  7. Tap on the Homebridge accessory (mine’s just called Homebridge).
  8. You will see an alert that says, “This accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with HomeKit.” tap Add Anyway.
  9. Tap Enter Code Manually at the bottom of the screen.
  10. Enter the HomeKit code for your Homebridge accessory. You can find it in the Terminal window underneath the text that reads, “Scan this code with your HomeKit App on your iOS device to pair with Homebridge.”
  11. Add your Homebridge accessory and tap Next.
  12. Add your TP-Link Smart Plug (or other accessory you installed with a Homebridge plugin) and tap Done.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully linked a non-HomeKit-enabled smart home accessory to HomeKit. As long as there’s a plugin available, you can add any non-HomeKit-enabled accessories you like. Just be sure to install the plugin, fill out the configuration file, and quit and relaunch Homebridge in Terminal.

How are you feeling?

Installing Homebridge is no small task! Were you able to pull it off? Struggle along the way? Did you find help in the Homebridge support pages and Slack or are you still looking for assistance? I’m looking forward to hearing about your experience and your thoughts on Homebridge; share them with me in the comments below or over on Twitter!

Clips app: The ultimate guide


Clips app: The ultimate guide

How to use Apple’s new Clips app for iPhone and iPad — and make all your social and shared videos faster and more easily than ever.

Years ago Apple rebooted iMovie to better fit the modern era of video recording and editing. But in technology, years ago might as well be an eternity. So, now, Apple has started over again with an all-new, all-modern video editing and sharing app — Clips. It’s not meant to make the next award-winning indie movie. It’s meant to let you quickly and easily slap together social video to share with your friends and networks. In other words, it’s meant to make your Snapchat, Instagram, and iMessage extra lit.

How to take and edit video and photos in the Clips app

Clips is Apple’s fun new video editing app for iPhone and iPad. With it you can quickly and cooly add video, photos, subtitles, effects, title cards, and music, and share it with your contacts and social networks. To do that, you first need to get all the videos and photos into Clips. Here’s how!

How to record and edit Live Titles in the Clips app

How to add and edit Live Titles in the Clips app

Silent movies gave way to DOLBY ATMOS, but thanks to Facebook, Instagram, and the like — and our desire to browse ‘em in bed while others are sleeping! — silent video has made a comeback. That’s also pushed subtitles out of the options drawer and made them default. With Clips, you don’t have to manually or tediously add them to your video. All you have to do is talk. Live Titles takes care of the rest!

How to add filters and effects in the Clips app

How to add filters and effects in the Clips app

Clips wouldn’t be a modern social video app if it didn’t include filters and effects. Sure, what you shoot might look totally gorgeous au naturel. But, if you want to cover any flaws or just add some fun, you can hit the filters, add the effects, and take your Clips to the next level.

How to add and edit Title Cards in the Clips app

Just like social has brought back silent cinema, it’s also made the Title Card popular again. Title cards are fun, animated backgrounds and text you can add to your videos. “The End” is probably the most famous example of a classic title card, but you can use them for intros, transitions — anything you want. If captions are a whisper, Title Cards are SHOUT! Apple’s built Title Cards right into the new Clips app for iPhone and iPad — but use their attention-grabbing power wisely!

How to add and edit overlays and emoji in the Clips app

Where would our snappy and instant candids be without word bubbles, comic callouts, time and location stamps, and even emoji to cover up what’s best left unseen? Apple’s new video app, Clips lets you add just such overlays to your video. They’re not very elaborate yet, but several of them are elegantly animated and can definitely ramp up the fun factor.

Hvordan gør man en omfattende karriere overskuelig på et CV? Prøv at begrænse resuméet til én side, lyder rådet fra eksperter hos Novorésumé. Se hvordan, de har sammenfattet Teslas Elon Musks karriere på én enkelt side.

Forestil dig, at du er Elon Musk, CEO for Tesla og en af verdens førende tech-entreprenører. Forestil dig, at du arbejder med alt fra elektronisk betaling til solenergi til elbiler til rumfart.

Det kræver da, at du har et CV på mindst et par sider, ikke?

Ikke hvis man spørger folkene bag Novorésumé, en virksomhed der tilbyder CV-skabeloner online.

Se stillinger inden for Energi, forsyning og miljø på Jobfinder.

Ifølge Business Insider har virksomheden givet bevis for påstanden ved at lave et eksempel på et CV-resumé for selveste Elon Musk på blot én side. Novorésumés co-founder Andrei Kurtuy er overbevist om, at ‘less is more’-konceptet også gælder for CV-skrivning:

»Vi ville bevise, at selv en meget succesfuld og omfattende karriere kan blive præsenteret på en side,« siger han til Business Insider.

Der er dog nogle ting, som du ikke nødvendigvis bør kopiere fra CV-eksemplet, skriver Business Insider. Under ‘Skills and competencies’ er for eksempel anført ‘micromanaging’, som i praksis betyder, at man går alting efter i sømmene og er meget kritisk, hvilket ikke nødvendigvis anses som en positiv lederevne.

Måske kan du finde bedre lederkompetencer, der passer til din egen stil og unikke baggrund.

Ikke desto mindre kan eksemplet bruges som inspiration til at skære ind til benet, så dit CV gør bedre indtryk, næste gang du søger nyt job:

How to take and edit video and photos in the Clips app

How do you get video and photos into Apple’s new Clips app? HOLD the big red button, and then…

Clips is Apple’s fun new video editing app for iPhone and iPad. With it you can quickly and cooly add video, photos, subtitles, effects, title cards, and music, and share it with your contacts and social networks. To do that, you first need to get all the videos and photos into Clips.

  • How does the Clips interface work?
  • How do you start a new project in Clips?
  • How do you take a video with Clips?
  • How do you take a photo with Clips?
  • How do you insert existing photos and video into Clips?
  • How do you move and rearrange Clips?
  • How do you mute or un-mute audio in Clips?
  • How do you trim (or un-trim) a Clip?
  • How do you delete Clips?
  • How do you delete a whole project?

How does the Clips interface work?

Clips has a refreshingly discoverable — buttons are mostly obvious and clearly labeled. From the main screen, top left to bottom right, you have:

Clips interface

  1. Downward caret: Switch to Projects.
  2. Speech bubble: Live titles.
  3. Overlapping circles: Shows the Effects filters.
  4. DF logo: Opens the Overlay browser.
  5. T-square: The Title Cards.
  6. Musical note: Opens the music library.
  7. Live view: Shows you what’s going to be recorded or inserted.
  8. Photo: Switches to the still camera.
  9. Video: Switches to the video camera.
  10. Library: Switches to your photo library.
  11. Microphone: Toggles audio recording on or off.
  12. Hold to Record / Add This Clip / Add This Photo: Inserts the content into the Clips timeline.
  13. Camera: Switches between the front-facing and rear-facing cameras.
  14. Play: Plays the current Clip stream.
  15. Clip thumbnails: Clips currently in the stream.
  16. Done: Switches to projects.

There are a few differences between the Photo and Library screens, for example, a flash button, but not many. The project screen is a different beast entirely, again top left to bottom right:

  1. Upward caret: Switches to the capture screen.
  2. ? button: Opens the help browser.
  3. + button: Starts a new project.
  4. Collages: Your existing projects.
  5. Preview: The currently selected project.
  6. Play: Play the preview.
  7. Open: Switches to the capture screen.
  8. Share: Opens the Share sheet.

How do you start a new project in Clips?

Clips organizes videos into Projects. Each project has it’s own clip stream. You can edit or add projects at any time.

  1. Tap the Projects button (Looks like v) at the top left.
  2. Tap the New Video button (looks like a +) or an existing project to select it.
  3. Tap the Done at the bottom right to go back to the capture screen. (You can also tap the Projects button again or the preview window.)

How do you take a video with Clips?

Taking videos is one of the primary functions of Clips, so it’s super-simple to do.

  1. Tap on the Video tab, center, beneath the live view.
  2. Tap the Record Audio button to switch between mic (with audio) and mute (no audio) modes.
  3. Tap the Camera Chooser button to switch between front (selfie) and back (elsie) cameras.
  4. Use the live view to frame the subject(s) you want to record.
  5. Touch and hold Hold to Record.
  6. Pinch on the live view to zoom in or out while recording.
  7. Let go when you’re done.

As soon as you’re done you can record more video or start working on the video you just shot.

Note: Clips will use the front mic for the front-facing (selfie) camera and the back mic for the back-facing camera. So, if you’re shooting something else and you want your voice heard (and/or Live Titled, see below), SPEAK UP. If you have headphones with a mic attached, Clips will use that mic regardless.

How do you take a photo with Clips?

Photos are treated almost like static video in Clips, so you don’t just choose your shot, you choose how long to hold on your shot as well.

  1. Tap on the Photo tab, left, beneath the live view.
  2. Tap on the Flash button to cycle the flash between auto (white), on (yellow), and off (struck out).
  3. Tap the Camera Chooser button to switch between front (selfie) and back (elsie) cameras.
  4. Tap the big, round Shutter button to take a photo.
  5. Tap Retake if you’re not happy with it and want a do-over.
  6. Touch and hold Hold to Add This Photo to insert the photo as a clip. (You need to hold for at least 1 second for it to be inserted.)
  7. Pinch or Swipe on the live view to zoom in or out or pan while inserting.
  8. Let go when you’re done.

When you’re done, you can immediately insert the same photo again, say with different zooming, switch back to video, or switch to something else.

How do you insert existing photos and video into Clips?

You don’t have to create brand new videos or photos for Clips. You can insert the photos and videos you already have.

  1. Tap on the Library tab, right, beneath the live view.
  2. Tap on the Albums button, top right, to switch albums.
  3. Tap on the photo or video you want to insert. (If you pick the wrong one, just tap on Library again and start over.)
  4. Tap the Record Audio button to switch between mic (with audio) and mute (no audio) modes. (You can add live audio to any photo or video while you’re inserting it.)
  5. Touch and hold Hold to Add This Clip/Photo to insert the video or photo.
  6. Pinch or Swipe on the live view to zoom in or out or pan while inserting.
  7. Let go when you’re done.

You can immediately add the same video or photo again, with different pan and zoom, for example, or move on to the next clip.

How do you move and rearrange Clips?

<img src=”/sites/imore.com/files/styles/larger/public/field/image/2017/04/clips-rearrange-screens.jpg?itok=eaHDFrEs” width=”1152″ height=”2048″ alt=”” class=”right” style=”max-width=”250″ />

Once you’ve captured or inserted a Clip, you can change the order and sequence at any time.

  1. Touch and hold the Clip you want to move.
  2. Drag the Clip to its new position.
  3. Let go.

If you make a mistake, just repeat the process until the Clip is where you want it.


How do you mute or un-mute audio in Clips?

If you record a Clip with audio and later want to silence it, or if you mute a clip and later want to restore audio, it’s just a tap or two away.

  1. Tap the Clip you want to mute or un-mute.
  2. Tap on the Sound button (looks like a speaker).

How do you trim (or un-trim) a Clip?

If you record too much and want to trim off the beginning or end of a Clip, you can do it using the same type of controls as the Photos app.

  1. Tap the Clip you want to trim.
  2. Tap the Edit button (looks like scissors).
  3. Drag the left or right Trim control to remove video from the beginning or end.
  4. Tap Apply to finish.

How do you delete Clips?

If you decide you no longer want a Clip, you can trash it.

  1. Tap the Clip you want to trash.
  2. Tap the Delete button (looks like a trash can).
  3. Tap Delete Clip to confirm.

How do you delete a whole project?

Wi-Fi not working on your iPhone or iPad? Here’s the fix!


Wi-Fi not working on your iPhone or iPad? Here’s the fix!

If you’re having trouble connecting to Wi-Fi with your iPhone or iPad, we’ve got the troubleshooting guide for you.

In theory, wireless connections and cellular networks should live happily in harmony on your iPhone or iPad. Your device uses automatic switching technology to pop you on known Wi-Fi networks and send you back to cellular when you’re out of range, and it works great… most of the time.

But let’s be honest: Wireless networks — especially those that have interstitial signup sheets — can be finicky. If you’re running into problems with your Wi-Fi network on your iPhone or iPad, here are some good troubleshooting tips to try.

1. Is your Wi-Fi even on, bro?

Yes, this is a pretty straight-forward troubleshoot, but always worth checking: Have you accidentally disabled Wi-Fi or turned on Airplane Mode? If so, you can quickly re-enable it by doing the following:

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of your device’s screen to activate Control Center.
  2. Make sure the Wi-Fi button is illuminated in blue.

  3. If it’s grey, tap on it to activate Wi-Fi.

2. Are you connected to the right network?

Once you’re sure your Wi-Fi is active, make sure you’re connected to the correct network. I run into this problem a lot when I visit cafés in residential areas that also have home Wi-Fi guest networks: If there are multiple known Wi-Fi networks in the area (including networks that have the same “known signature,” like Starbucks, AT&T, Comcast, or Cox Wi-Fi), your iPhone or iPad will often just pick the first alphabetical option — rarely the choice you want.

First, you can check to see if you’re connected to the right network:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Select Wi-Fi.
  3. Check the active Wi-Fi network at the top. Is it the one you want?

  4. If not, select the network you do want to use from the list.

While Apple unfortunately doesn’t let you choose your Wi-Fi network preference on iPhone (though you can do so on a Mac), you can forget a pesky auto-connecting network.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Select Wi-Fi.
  3. Tap the info button (looks like an i) to the right of the network you wish to forget.

  4. Tap Forget This Network at the top of the screen.

This network will now no longer auto-connect when you turn on Wi-Fi; if you wish to use it again, you’ll have to tap to select it.

3. Do you need to log in?

I run into this problem a lot on planes and in hotel rooms: Many “public”, password-free Wi-Fi networks often have an interstitial page that requires you to log in with a username and password — or buy internet access — before continuing. After connecting, your iPhone will usually pop up the interstitial page to log in; that said, I’ve occasionally run into the problem where your device never shows the log in page, but doesn’t let you access the internet.

The work-around here is actually pretty simple — as long as you know the URL of the log in page you need to visit. I’ll use GoGo Inflight as an example here, since it’s the network I see this with most often:

  1. Make sure you’re connected to the right network.
  2. Open Safari.
  3. Go to https://www.gogoair.com (or the appropriate address).
  4. The log in page should load.

  5. Sign in.
  6. After logging in, you should have full access to the internet.

4. Are you on the latest version of iOS?

Apple’s operating system updates often include security patches and fixes that improve Wi-Fi and network connections. If you’re not running the latest version of iOS, go ahead and download it.

5. Do you need to manually enter or reboot your Wi-Fi connection?

Sometimes your Wi-Fi connection can get screwed up for unknown reasons and won’t display networks you know are available. If you’re seeing a constantly-spinning loading sign on your Settings’ Wi-Fi page, you can always manually enter your Wi-Fi network or reboot.

Here’s how to manually enter your Wi-Fi network.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Select Wi-Fi.
  3. Tap Other…
  4. Enter the exacty name of the network (spaces, numbers, and capitalization).
  5. Choose its security settings (usually WPA2, WEP, or None).

  6. Enter in the network password, if applicable.
  7. Press Join.

If this doesn’t work, you may need to reboot your Wi-Fi connection.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Select Wi-Fi.
  3. Switch the Wi-Fi toggle to Off.
  4. Wait ten seconds.

  5. Switch the Wi-Fi toggle to On.

If that doesn’t work, you can also reboot your iPhone or iPad entirely.

  1. Press and hold on the On/Off button until you see slide to power off, then release it.
  2. Slide your finger along slide to power off.
  3. Reboot the phone by pressing and holding on the On/Off button.
  4. Attempt to connect to your Wi-Fi network of choice.

6. Do you need to forget the network and re-join?

When your iPhone and iPad first join a Wi-Fi network, they perform a little handshake that saves the network in your phone’s memory so that you can automatically connect to it in the future. If that handshake gets corrupted in some way, however, it may make it impossible for you to connect to the network. If you think your device’s connection may have been somehow gotten messed up, you can always forget the network in question and rejoin.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Select Wi-Fi.
  3. Tap the info button (looks like an i) to the right of the network you wish to forget.
  4. Tap Forget This Network at the top of the screen.

  5. When the network reappears in the main Wi-Fi list, select it.
  6. Log in, if necessary.
  7. Once connected, visit Safari or another network-connected app to see if your connection was successfully restored.

7. Do you need to reset the Wi-Fi network’s router?

If you’re having problems with a specific network, it’s time to check out what’s going on under that network’s hood. If the Wi-Fi network is yours to tinker with, you can dive into your router’s settings to try and reboot or reset it. These settings vary by manufacturer, so we suggest looking up your router and going from there.

If you’re having problems with a network that isn’t yours, check with the proprietor or IT administrator — are other people having this problem? Can the network be rebooted? If not, you may be out of luck.

8. Do you need to reset your network settings?

If your iPhone won’t connect to any Wi-Fi hotspot, your network settings may be to blame. They contain an array of small settings, including your handshakes with Wi-Fi networks and cellular data preferences. To reset them, you need only visit the Settings app.

Note: I don’t recommend resetting network settings if you’re only having trouble connecting to a singluar Wi-Fi network — only if you’re running into repeated issues with multiple networks.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Select General.
  3. Tap Reset.
  4. Select Reset Network Settings.

  5. Enter your passcode.
  6. Confirm Reset Network Settings.

Your phone will reboot; upon reboot, try connecting to the network of your choice. You may need to reenter the Wi-Fi network’s password as a result of the settings clear.

9. Do you need to restore your iPhone or iPad?

If you’ve tried all of the above steps to no avail, it might be time to consider restoring your device. It’s not my first recommendation, but if your Wi-Fi is completely borked, you might not have another option at this point.

10. Do you need to see a repair specialist?

If you’ve made it this far through the guide, I’m afraid my answer is probably so. Chances are, if you’ve tried all software options available and you still can’t connect to any Wi-Fi network, your iPhone or iPad may have a hardware issue. Wi-Fi chip or antenna failure is rare, but it can happen — and the only way to fix it is to visit your local Apple Store or Apple Authorized Repair Shop.

Tip: Tillad at enkelte kontakter ikke bliver blokeret af Forstyr ikke


Tip: Tillad at enkelte kontakter ikke bliver blokeret af Forstyr ikke

iOS har en “Forstyr ikke”-funktion, så man undgår at blive forstyrret af telefonopkald og notifikationer på ubelejlige tidspunkter. Kender du ikke funktionen, så se her hvordan du bruger den: Sådan bruger du iOS’s forstyr ikke-funktion.

En smart ting ved Forstyr ikke er, at man kan indstille det så ens familie og venner godt må forstyrre en ved at tillade. at de kontakter man har blandt sine favoritter ikke skal omfattes af Forstyr ikke-funktionen.

Det er dog ikke altid dækkende. Der kunne være nogle kontakter man ikke ønsker blandt sine favoritter – fordi man aldrig kontakter dem – men som man alligvel gerne vil tillade forstyrer en fordi det er vigtigt. Det kunne være et opkald fra ens læge eller hospitalet – eller også afventer man et vigtigt opkald fra en kommende arbejdsgiver etc. Det er ikke sikkert man vil have dem til at fylde i ens favoritliste, men måske skal der opkald altid kunne komme igennem alligevel. Netop derfor har iOS indbygget en funktion, så man i disse situationer kan tillade kontakter er slipper forbi Forstyr ikke-funktionen. Man styrer et på individuel basis og som sagt behøver kontakterne ikke være blandt ens favoritter.

Sådan tillader du specifikke kontakter at slippe gennem Forstyr ikke

1. Åbn Kontakter-appen.

2. Find den pågældende kontakt. Eller tilføj om nødvendigt vedkommende.

3. Tryk på Rediger øverst til højre på siden for den individuelle kontakt.

4. Scroll lidt ned og tryk på “Ringetone”.

5. Øverst kan du nu vælge at tilsidesætte forstyr ikke for den pågældende kontakt.

6. Tryk OK, når du er færdig.

Den pågældende kontakt bliver nu ikke længere stoppet selvom Forstyr ikke er slået til, men kommer igennem til din iPhone som et regulært opkald.

Gentag ovenstående procedure for alle de kontakter, hvor det er relevant.

How to add your child onto Family Sharing

How to I add a child account onto Family Sharing? Like this!

Updated April, 2017: Updated screenshots and steps for iOS 10.3.

You can add child accounts onto your Family Sharing setup for any child under 13. That way you can prevent them from buying things willy-nilly on your dime. Creating a child Apple ID creates an “Ask to Buy” button, which notifies you when your kid wants to purchase an app, song, TV show, or anything else found on iTunes or the App Store (Mac App Store included). If your child already has an Apple ID, you can move them onto a child ID (sort of).

Here’s how to add your child onto Family Sharing.

  • How to create a new child Apple ID
  • How to move your child onto Family Sharing

How to create a new child Apple ID

A child under 13 cannot create their own Apple ID. Adding a younger birthday halts the regular Apple ID creation process, so you have to do things a special way.

  1. Launch Settings from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap your Apple ID at the top (should be the name you used to sign up).
  3. Tap Family Sharing.
  4. Tap Create an Apple ID for a Child at the bottom of the screen.
  5. Tap Next on the top right of your screen.

    Tap your Apple ID, tap Family Sharing, tap Create an Apple ID for a Child, tap Next

  6. Enter your child’s birthday using the picker.
  7. Tap Next on the top right of your screen.
  8. Tap Agree on the bottom right of your screen after you’ve read the Parent Privacy Disclosure.
  9. Enter the security code for the payment method you have on file. This somehow verifies that you’re the legal guardian of the child in question (what?).
  10. Tap Next.

    Enter the birthday, tap Next, tap Agree, enter security code for your credit card, tap next

  11. Enter the child’s first and last name.
  12. Tap Next.
  13. Enter a name. This email address will become the Apple ID for your child.
  14. Tap Next.
  15. Tap Create when you’re sure of the email address. You cannot change it afterward.

    Enter the first and last name, tap Next, enter a name for the email address, tap Next, tap Create

  16. Type a password that contains at least 8 characters, an uppercase letter, and a number.
  17. Tap Next.
  18. Choose security questions and answers, tapping Next after each one.
  19. Tap Next on the Ask to Buy screen. You’ll want to leave the switch green so that your child requires approval before buying anything.

    Type a password, tap Next, choose security questions and answers, tap Next

  20. Tap to share your child’s location with the rest of the people on your Family Sharing account. Otherwise, tap Not Now.
  21. Tap Agree to agree to the Terms and Conditions.
  22. Tap Agree in the pop-up.

    Tap to share your child's location, tap Agree, tap Agree

Your child is now added to your family sharing. Their Apple ID is the @icloud.com email address that was created during the setup process. They may use it to sign in on their own devices if they have them. Any time they try to make a purchase, you will be notified and can approve or decline the transaction.

How to move your child onto Family Sharing

If your child is on a regular Apple ID, but you would like them to have a child account because they’re going a bit nuts buying up apps and TV shows, then you can move them onto a child ID by changing the birth date associated with their Apple ID.

  1. Make sure the account is a member of your Family Sharing group. If not, add it to your Family Sharing group
  2. Go to appleid.apple.com and sign into your child’s existing Apple ID using your favorite web browser.
  3. Click Edit next to the Account section.
  4. Change the birthday in the BIRTHDAY field.
  5. Click Done on the upper right.

    Sign into your child's Apple ID, click Edit, change the birthday, click Done

That’s it. You’ve created a child account. It is important to note that once you change the birthday to under 13 years old, you won’t be able to change the birthday back.

By just changing the birthday, you’re able to keep all the purchased content and everyone in your Family Sharing can partake and enjoy.
