Andrea is one of those people that if something happened to her iPhone, the only thing she would care about are the photos. She’s in the prime of her career in a broadway musical touring all over the world in a leading role.
You can imagine the memories she’s capturing are some of the sweetest she’ll look back on.
Andrea isn’t the best at backing up her phone to her computer, though. She’s busy with other things that keep her from religiously grabbing her computer and plugging in her phone to sync and back up.
Unfortunately, that made for a mess when things went wrong with her phone and she had a couple nightmare experiences at the Apple Store. I won’t go into detail, but we got it all sorted out and she’s a happy camper. Especially once we got her set up with iCloud Photo Library.
“Should I wait to upgrade to the newest version of the iPhone or just get the iPhone 5S now, is it going to be worth it?” Pam asked.
“Since you have an older iPhone,” (iPhone 3GS) “anything would be a major improvement. I would wait for the new one since it won’t be very long till the newest model is released.” I said. “However, you want to do it the right way, whatever you choose.”
Have you ever upgraded your iPhone and had the same problems you had with your last one? Or have you gone to the Apple Store, they replace the phone, and the next one has the same issue? Is there some trick to making sure your newest phone performs the way you want it to?
If your phone has issues or more than a couple years old, you should consider not restoring your phone from a backup.
Tired of friends or family logging onto your computer and signing you out of your sites and downloading random files to your computer?
I just had a client reach out to me because he has a computer that he lets people use frequently. They are constantly logging into their Facebook, Dropbox, and other accounts and often downloading files. Almost never do these people log out of their accounts or delete the downloads.
He wanted an account that would automatically log out, and when it did, it would wipe out all trace the person was there. On top of this, we needed to make sure the guests could not access any of the private data in the personal account.
Lucky for us, Apple has thought of this and created something perfect for the job. It’s called the Guest Account.
When you log in the Guest account you have access to all the apps and can sign in to whatever, wherever and download as much as you want. When you log out of the account it erases everything that was downloaded and leaves no record the person was there.
Here’s a very quick video how to set up a Guest Account.
