Step1 – Turn Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on. – Share files iPhone to Mac
On your iPhone swipe up from the bottom to open Control Center. If you are using an iPhone 10, swipe down from the upper right hand corner of your screen and 3D tap in the middle of the network settings box.
Make sure your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are turned on and if your AirDrop is off, turn it on. When you turn the AirDrop on you will have three options, so you should see Receiving off, Contactsonly and Everyone. Select everyone, but be careful leaving this option on in public as you might get Cyber Flashed. What is Cyber Flashing? check out this link here.
In the Apple menu click on Go and then Scroll down to AirDrop. If your Bluetooth is turned off just go ahead and turn it back on. It is important to make sure your devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network so that they can see each other. Can you see your iPhone and other devices in the AirDrop menu? If you can’t see them it is likely because you need to click the drop down menu and make sure Everyone is selected.
Step 2 – Transfer files.
Next up go to the file, photo or document you want to share and tap the Share icon. If you don’t see it tap the more icon to find it. Next tap your AirPlay icon. Simply tap the device you want to share with and then you should see a pop up on your iPhone or Mac, you can accept or decline the file.
Step 3 – Turn off AirPlay
To turn AirPlay off go back into your drop down menu and select no one. You can also go into the settings menu and turn blue tooth off.

TIP: Turn off find my iPhone and any passcodes or security features that you might have on your iPhone iOS device. If you have an older version of iOS older than 11.4 you wont have messages available to backup. So just upgrade your iOS version your device.
Tap on iCloud backup, make sure it is turned on. Then tap back up now.
If you want to check what data you have uploaded to iCloud then you can check this by going into a web browser on a normal computer and go to www.icloud.com
On your Oppo phone go into the Tools menu > backup and restore and tap on clone phone menu. If you don’t have this option use the download link below.
Again you will need to use the data transfer software Clone Phone software to get the data from iCloud to the Oppo phone. You can get that free software on this link here.

This video will show you how to Fix iPhone, iPad or iPod Black Screen. This is helpful if your iOS device doesn’t turn on or turns on but the screen is just black.
The tips in this video will work for iPhone, iPad or iPod. And these tips can fix your iOS devices if you just have black screen but can still feel the device vibrating. Or it can fix issues with your device not turning on.
Basic steps first then harder steps later.
Make sure your device has a at least an hours charge. You iOS device battery needs at least 5% before it will turn on. Test your charger to make sure it not faulty. Do this by plugging it into another iOS device and check that its charging ok. The Adapter could be faulty the USB cable could be faulty as well.
Once you have checked your charger is fine and you have left your device charging for an hour the next step is to try putting your device in and out of download mode.
To do this press and hold down Home, Power and Volume down buttons.
You can try those same steps again but this time try the volume up button instead of the volume down button. Also try hold both volume down and up buttons along with the Home and Power buttons.
Next for the iPhone 8, iPhone plus or iPhone X.
Press and release the volume up button. Press and release the volume down button and then press and hold the power button.
And then you should wait for the Apple logo to come up.
Last step you can try plugging your iOS device into iTunes, this might force the iOS device to bootup otherwise you might get two options restore and update. Don’t press the restore button because that will wipe your data. Try pressing the update button.

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

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