You can check the battery charge status by opening the AirPods case next to your iPhone, but I don’t like waiting a few seconds for the status to pop up. I prefer to add the large battery widget to my Today screen so I can quickly swipe to the right and see the battery status of my iPhone, Apple Watch, and my AirPods Pro … but only if they’re open and connected to my iPhone, or in my ears.

Apple acquired the Dark Sky weather app in March 2020 (and they are sunsetting it by the end of 2022) and I’ve been perfectly happy with the Weather App in iOS 15. Pretty much everything in the Weather App is obvious and intuitive, but one thing I didn’t know you could do is enter the map, move around / zoom, and then tap and hold on a location to get info about that specific location! Jeff’s iTip: Manage email notifications on the iPhone using VIPs. First, you need to identify people as a VIP so go to the Mail App and tap at the top left to go to Mailboxes.  Tap Edit at top right and enable VIP. Tap on the info button to see who is currently a VIP or add someone new. Next, to set notifications go to the Settings app, select Notifications, then Mail, then Customize Notifications.  Decide how you want to be notified of new emails on your accounts – either badges or alerts or both.  I select badges.  Then decide how you want to be notified of new emails from a VIP.  I have Alerts turned on, with sound set to vibrate only.Brett Burney from http://www.appsinlaw.comJeff Richardson from http://www.iphonejd.comSupport the show

So I’m sharing a couple of tips on the “Water Lock” feature of the Apple Watch (make sure it’s Series 2 or higher!!). You can manually turn on Water Lock from the Apple Watch Control Center or frankly the easiest way for me was to start a swimming workout and that automatically puts the Apple Watch in Water Lock mode. While in Water Lock mode, you can’t tap the screen (something about the water interferes with this) but pressing and holding the side button will still dial emergency services where possible. And you can pause your swimming workout by pressing the Digital Crown and Side Button at the same time - and this is a good way to dry off first before you unlock the Apple Watch. To get out of Water Lock, do the oh-so-fun twisting of the Digital Crown to have the Apple Watch expel excess water with sounds and vibrations!Jeff’s iTip: There is a “hidden” battery graph in the Apple Watch Battery Settings that allows you to see charging details. You must be running at least watchOS7 and just simply visit the Battery page in Settings. The graph here is similar to the one that you can see on your iPhone Brett Burney from http://www.appsinlaw.comJeff Richardson from http://www.iphonejd.comSupport the show

Let’s say you regularly set your phone down on a table or desk where other folks can see it, which means they can see any notifications or messages that appear on there too. But you can disable some things from being accessible or viewable from the Lock Screen by going to Settings - FaceID & Passcode, and scrolling down to “Allow Access when Locked.” I turn off access to Control Center when locked, but usually leave on the Notification Center. The only thing you can’t do is turn off access to the Camera - that will always be available from the Lock Screen by swiping to the left. Jeff’s Tip: Migration Assistant on a Mac mini: BYODKM.

When I run, I like to have music playing a certain BPM and while I don’t have a lot of notifications it seems like they all pop up when I’m running and interrupt my music. I finally went into Settings and created a simple Focus that turns off all notifications EXCEPT any that come from my wife, my kids, or my mother, and any notifications from 3 specific apps. Everything else can wait! And I usually turn on this Focus by swiping up on my Apple Watch which engages on my iPhone as well (make sure you have “Share Across Devices” turned on in the Settings).

Or $29.99/year for ProRecently got on a kick to do some more hiking and walking outside, and so pulled up the AllTrails app I had downloaded a few years ago. Great way to find nice trails for walking, hiking, biking, dog-friendly paths, etc. Plus the best part is all the reviews that people post giving you helpful advice about each trail. You get basic info about the trail like length, what’s allowed, and how long it should take to walk it, along with easy/moderate/hard labels. Plus you get a full map of the trail. The free app is probably just fine for most folks, but upgrade to Pro for unlocking more map details and downloading offline maps. Jeff’s iTip: Using AirPods with Windows. First it’s helpful to keep Settings pinned to your Taskbar so that it’s easily accessible when you need to connect your Windows computer to your AirPods. If you need to check the battery status of your AirPods Pro when they’re connected to your Windows computer, you can do that on your iPhone. Also be careful about removing one from ear because it can jump over to your iPhone or iPad and then you would have to re-connect to your Windows PC.

Separate takes up more space but offers a more familiar-looking appearance with the address bar displayed above your open tabs. Compact takes up less space by having your currently viewed tab act as an address bar, and also matches the Tab Bar's color to the site you are viewing. Make the change in Settings - Safari. I’ve been preferring the Compact layout, but it still seems like I’m having to get used to it.   Jeff’s iTip: AirTag replacement batteries: avoid bitterant coatings. The battery in an AirTag should last about a year. When you are alerted that it is time to replace the battery, you use a standard CR2032 battery.  Because this battery is so small, a child might think that it is something to put in their mouth and swallow, so some battery manufacturers now add a non-toxic bitter coating to the battery to deter a child from swallowing the battery once it is placed in the child's mouth.  Unfortunately, CR2032 batteries with this bitterant coating might not work with the AirTag, as Apple warns in this support article: I can confirm, based on my recent trip to Italy, that batteries with this bitterant coating are problematic in an AirTag!  Here is what I purchased: Burney from  Jeff Richardson from Support the show

Khalid: Amazon's new pitch: let Alexa speak as your relatives from beyond the graveBrett’s iTip: Normally I play all my music from my iPhone and use my Apple Watch to simply control the music, but I recently stumbled on this clever tip that lets me load music locally on to my Apple Watch and play it directly from there! I originally had “Recent Music” toggled on and the storage space on my Apple Watch was full - but then just added the albums I really wanted. This seems to only work with Apple Music (although I don’t believe you have to be a subscriber, just have the music stored in the Music app). Also note that the music won’t actually be transferred until the Apple Watch is being charged.   Jeff’s iTip: Turn on Sounds on the Apple Watch. I usually have my Apple Watch muted throughout the day just because I don’t want to annoy people around me with extra noises and alerts. But recently I tried the new WatchTube app for my Apple Watch and couldn’t hear the audio until I swiped up on Watch to reveal the Control Center and turned un-muted the audio.

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my 2nd Generation Apple Pencil for taking notes on my iPad (mainly using Notability) and one of my favorite little tips is simply double-tapping the Apple Pencil to quickly switch between the writing pen and the eraser! It’s so quick and easy, and doesn’t require me to lift my finger to tap another option, etc. There are other double-tap options under Settings - Apple Pencil but I very much like the immediate toggle between pen and eraser.   Jeff’s iTip: iPad as a White Board at Home (using GoodNotes). We use it for homework at our house, but you can use this for anything! For example, you can just put up a blank background and then take notes, and share those notes with others. Here’s a bonus tip when using GoodNotes and accessing the “lasso” tool” - you can customize what you grab with the lasso tool by tapping the tool and toggling on or off the following: handwriting, images, text boxes, and comments. When you’re done with the note you can export it as a PDF to share it around. Brett Burney from http://www.appsinlaw.comJeff Richardson from http://www.iphonejd.comSupport the show

In order to see the time, you’ll need to either move towards the Watch or tap it, which isn’t always easy to do in the dark. But previously, I would have my iPhone sitting next to me and have to pick it up, so this is better. Just nice to put the Watch to use while it’s charging overnight. Jeff’s Apple Watch Tip: Apple Watch Theater Mode - This turns on Silent Mode and the screen stays dark until you tap or press a button.

When I used TouchID on an iPhone, I really only used one thumb, but with the iPad Air it makes sense to have multiple fingers for TouchID depending on the way that you’re holding the iPad. You can go into Settings - TouchID & Passcode and add more fingers, and even rename the fingers that you’ve used for TouchID. You can even add a family member’s finger to unlock your iPad. Jeff’s iTip: You’ve always been able to copy an entire text message by tapping and holding and selecting “Copy” from the pop-up menu, but that copies all of the text in the message. If you only want to copy part of the text, create a screenshot of the text message and then in the screenshot drag your finger across the text to select and copy it - this works because the iPhone recognizes the text through the Live Text feature.
