Friday Apple Quick Tips

Apple marbles

Sometimes, we take so much for granted, like knowing how to open apps on Apple mobile devices and that using an iPod, iPhone or iPad is very similar.  Recently, we were teaching a group of people how to use an iPod and then we were explaining how to use the iPad.   It was more difficult for the generation of people who did not grow up using these devices and were not exposed to their many uses. After playing with both the iPad and the iPod at our demo table and getting over their initial fear of the “unknown”, they were quite impressed with how intuitive Apple has created them. One of them eventually inquired about manuals for the devices.  I am including a link for manuals at the Apple Support site.

 At the touch of your fingers, you can automatically create documents and send them by email or even AirPrint them or share what you are working on in the classroom with an overhead projector and even use AirPlay  to display pictures and video you took with your Apple mobile device.  Some long time users still do not know everything that their Apple device is capable of like AirPrint or Airplay. Below are links to learn how easy these are.

Apple Quick Tip- Airport Wi-Fi

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Airport Wi-Fi

A new problem arose after one of our customers purchased an Airport Base Station for Wireless Networking in their home.  They followed the included Manual Instructions which did not call for getting this setup started using your Mac which turned out to be a missing key component for getting it set up correctly.  Below is a link to Apple Support for a tutorial slideshow on how to set up your wireless network.

Apple Support – Wi-Fi Slideshow

Airport 1

The first step of course is to turn your Mac on! Then plug your Airport into the outlet and open up Airport Utility by opening Finder from your dock.  Scroll down on right and open Utilities.   A window will appear and looks similar to this one above. 
Select the correct device by making sure it is highlighted and continue

Airport2

You are then given the chance to individualize your Airport device by creating a name along with a password to protect your Wi-Fi with security. 

Airport3

Select which set-up you want from the choices of extending your Wi-Fi Zone, replacing it or creating a new one or secondary one.  Then continue.

Airport4

Then, choose your wireless network which may be made easier by showing the name created for it previously.  Continue.

Airport5Congratulations! Click done, your Airport Device is activated.
