MUG ONE members now have a great new resource for learning. Dan Wassink of Dan’s Tutorials is sharing a selection of free videos and tips from the Dan’s Tutorials website each month. We will add them here and to our MUG ONE Facebook group as soon as they become available.
Thank you, Dan, for your generosity to Apple user groups!
Did you know you can send a group email on the iPhone? You do this by creating a group of contacts in the Contacts app on the Mac or in Contacts in iCloud.com. Once you have created that group, you can then open Mail on the iPhone and send an email to everyone in that group. See how this works in this video on sending an email to a group of people with the Mail app on the iPhone.
Apple added the ability to translate websites from one language to another in Safari. Even though this was introduced with macOS Big Sur, you can also translate websites in Safari on macOS Catalina. Learn how to translate websites from one language to another in this video for the Mac.
How much do you have to learn if you upgrade to macOS 11 Big Sur? Fortunately the fundamentals of the Mac have not changed with with the newest Mac operating system. macOS 11 still has the Apple Menu, Dock and Finder, and Finder windows still have the sidebar. See what hasn’t changed in macOS Big Sur in this video.
In this lesson from Dan’s Tutorials, Dan shows how to set which application a document opens with. You can do this on a one-time basis, set a specific document to open in a specific app, or set a specific document type to open in a specific app. As an example, you can set all PDFs to open in Preview or in Acrobat Reader, or all JPEGs to open in Preview or in Photoshop.
Did you know that you can save an entire Safari webpage as a PDF on your iPhone or iPad to view at a later date? You do this by first taking a screenshot of a webpage in Safari. You’ll see the thumbnail come across your iPhone, tap on in to open the screenshot. Then, at the top, you tap on Full Page. When you tap on Done, your iPhone will ask you to save it as a PDF. See how to save a webpage as a PDF in Safari on the iPhone with this video.
In this lesson from Dan’s Tutorials, Dan shows how to quickly navigate between different Home screens on your iPad or iPhone by just dragging your finger. With iOS 14, you no longer need to swipe to switch Home screens, you can just drag your finger to the left or right to navigate your iPhone’s Home screens.
With iPadOS 14, Apple added the ability to add a caption or description to both photos and videos in the Photos app on the iPad, as well as the iPhone with iOS 14. To add a caption, open the photo in the Photos app then swipe up. You’ll see an option to add a caption directly below the photo. Once you add a caption, you can then search for any photo or video with that caption. See how this works in this lesson from Dan’s Tutorials.
