What to do with your old broken iPad?

This video will show you what you can do to fix repair your old broken iPad.

Hi All,
I get allot of questions about old broken iPads so I thought I would put up a quick video about what you can do if anything with your older iPads. These steps will work with iPads, iPhones and iPods. This is helpful if you have got a new iPad and you want to retire your old iPad give it away or sell it and even recycle it for cash.

The first tip I mentioned was to make sure you have fully charged your iPad this is mainly for people that have faulty power cords or their laptop isn’t charging the device properly via the computer USB. Apple recently has recalled allot of these devices because they are faulty and I will go over how to work out if you cable is a faulty one or not. So its just something to try if you iPad or iOS device is not powering on properly.

The next step is to clear out and personal data if you want to give away or sell the iPad. To do this its pretty easy go to Settings > General > Reset and then Erase all content and settings. This will put the device back into a factory default state simular to when you purchased the iPad.

The next step is to check your iOS version. Apple update the software on the iPad called firmware all the time and when they update this some apps may also need an update before they will work.
Now you can update the iOS by doing a OTA over the air update or you can do a full clean update by doing a DFU update. I wont go into this to much as I already have a video about how this is done and you can see it on the link below.
Phone DFU Mode – iPhone is disabled

Also you can find a complete list of iPad firmware here, iPad Firmware.

Lastly can you get your old broken iPad fixed under your warranty? and can you get a trade in voucher for your old working device? Well the answer is yes and you can check that on the links below.
These links are to the Apple.com US site. For people in other country’s just search for Warranty or recycle on your country’s Apple site.

Good luck!

How to Add Bookmarks in IOS 8

This video will show you how to Add Bookmarks in IOS 8.

Hi All,
I always cringe a bit when I see people that use their iOS device everyday. But still have the same old default Apple, Bing, Google and Yahoo Bookmarks icons in their Safari browser. This also goes for any Mac running OS X Yosemite as the home page on these Mac’s now defaults to a bookmarks screen bringing them inline with their iOS devices.

Mac OS Bookmarks Page

I really don’t like this page as I feel its locking people in. However its here to stay so we may as well work with it.

So the steps to add a Bookmark in iOS is pretty straight forward, all you need to do is go the website you want to add. For the example in the video I used the www.123myit.com website. Once you have browsed to your website. Press the up arrow icon in the middle of the page at the bottom.

iOS Bookmark 1

Once this is done you will see a menu which contains the Add Bookmark, Add to Reading List, Add to Home Screen, Add to Shared Links buttons, press the Add Bookmark button and this will take you to the next screen.

Add Bookmarks in IOS 8

The next screen will have the Bookmark that you want to save, at this stage you can change the heading of the Book mark if you wish. In the video I have removed the “Your complete IT help portal” from the 123myit.com Bookmark. Once you have adjusted the heading simply press save.

Save iOS Bookmark

Once saved the Bookmark will show up every time you start a new Safari browser session.

If you want to know more about iOS 8, you can find the official Apple site here.

iOS 8 Update

This video will show you an iOS 8 Update.

iOS 8

Hi All,
As mentioned in the video above I went to reload the firmware on an iPad mini and iTunes started downloading Apple newly updated iOS 8.
The supported models for the iPhone start at the iPhone 4S and up. The iPad 2’s and up and the iPod 5th generation only.
You can find the direct links for iOS 8 on the links below.
Also before you upgrade you should try and save your signed shsh blobs file. This will allow you to downgrade back to iOS 7 is you so wish.
If you want to check out the Office Apple iOS 8 page you can find it here.

Good luck 🙂
Matt
