Then you start a new email and then press the arrow to bring up the toolbar, which says Select, Select All, Insert Photo or Video, etc. and then select Insert Photo or Video. By default, iCloud will be opened and you can now choose to insert an image.
All other files you will be able to attach in an email must be shared with Mail first. Will you, f.ex. send a pdf file from iBooks, then you must first open it in iBooks and share it with Mail.
- How to save drafts in Mail
If you are writing an email, but need to examine something you want to mention in the text, then you can save it as draft. To then return to it when you have found what you need.
Click Cancel in the upper left corner and select Archive draft. You can then find the mail in the draft folder.
If you just want to temporarily close the email to investigate something in another email, you can close it by pressing down on the subject line and then swiping down. The title of the Mail will be visible at the bottom of the page. When you are ready to continue the mail, just tap on the title and it will open again.
- How to add an appointment from your mail to your calendar
It is possible to add events from your email to your calendar. To enable this feature, open Settings & gt; Mail, Contacts, Calendars and turn on found appointments if not already.
In the future, when you get an email with an appointment, it will show a notification at the top that you can tap to add this appointment to your calendar. Tap add to put it into the calendar, and add again to save it.
- How to change an appointment in your calendar
Open the calendar, press the appointment until it becomes transparent and then drag it up or down to change the time or right or left to change the day.
You can also tap on the small circles at the top and bottom and drag up or down to extend the duration of the deal.
To make it even faster, you can also use Siri. Say something like ” make my appointment on Friday at. 14 to Saturday at. 10″.
- How to add travel time to your calendar appointment
Edit the appointment you want to add travel time to. Add the address of the agreement. Give the calendar permission to access your location if it asks for it.
Then select alarm and select departure time. Then you get a reminder of when to leave based on the travel time from where you are.
Tap Edit appointment and select other reminder. Here you can set up a reminder of up to two weeks before the appointment.
When you’re done, tap Edit appointment and then done.
- How to share reminders
If you use Family Sharing, a shared family reminder list is automatically created. But all reminder lists can be shared with other iOS users.
Open the list you want to share, tap Edit > Share & gt; Add person and add the email address associated with the person’s iCloud account. You will receive a notification when the person has accepted your request.
- How to set different vibration patterns for your contacts
If you have to concentrate and then vibrates your phone with an incoming message, which then turns out to be an advertisement, then you can go and get a little annoyed by the interruption.
On iPhone, you can set different vibration patterns for your contacts so you know who it is that is sending a message. This makes it easier to ignore incoming messages if it is the default vibration pattern and thus not an important message.
Under Contacts, select the contact you want to add a vibration pattern to and then click Vibration. If you can’t find Vibration, click Edit and add it.
- How to create your own vibration pattern
the iPhone only has a limited number of vibration patterns and so it may well happen that you run out of patterns you would like to use for your different contacts. But you can create new vibration patterns yourself.
Under Settings & gt; Sounds, scroll down to the different sounds and message alerts and click on the one you want to change. Open vibration settings at the top and scroll down to special. Click Create New vibration.
Tap the screen several times and hold your finger on the screen longer if you want a longer vibration. When you are satisfied, press disconnect and then you just have to name the vibration pattern and then you can add it to the selected contact.
- How to use data sharing
Are you on the go and have you brought your laptop, so it can be difficult to find a wifi connection you either dare or can use. Open connections are usually associated with uncertainty and therefore not recommendable to use, and others can be very slow if there are many on the system. So why not use your iPhone as hotspot instead.
In Settings & gt; Internet Sharing, you can then Internet Sharing to. However, make sure to create a code first so that not everyone and anyone nearby can use your phone as an internet connection.
You can then see a blue bar at the top of the screen that tells you how many devices are connected to the internet through your phone. One of the biggest power eaters is sharing your internet connection.Then you are on the move you can benefit from a power bank, so you do not suddenly run out of power.
You can also purchase a USB modem. You can then plug your SIM card into the USB modem and plug it directly into your computer. Or you can invest in a portable wireless 3G router that also has a USB input, if you have multiple devices that need to be able to access the network simultaneously.
