Apple's IOS 7 upgrade
With the release of IOS 7 yesterday (9-18-13) I thought I would start off my short list this week with a really nice free guide to IOS 7. If you have not downloaded IOS7 yet, I would take a look at it. It has some really great features, and seems to be working well on the devices I have tested it with.
By the look of my wireless traffic and internet traffic to Apple yesterday and today, I would say most of the kids at Norris will have it soon! LOL
Backup your phone/device before upgrading.
MakeUseOf has a really nice IOS7 guide available for online viewing or ebook download. <-- Download it! (As of this posting, the PDF doanload works fine, but the ePub downlaod has issues. I am sure they will get this resolved shortly.) You can place this right on your iPad/iPhone and read it at your leisure on your device!
