iPad tip of the week: Emailing Photos and Videos:

With the release of iOS 6 it is now easier than ever to add photos/videos to emails. You can now add them from within the email itself. Here is how:

  1. Open the mail app
  2. Create a new email message by tapping the new mail icon in the top right corner of the screen
  3. Tap and hold anywhere in the body of the message to bring up a list of options.
  4. Locate the option that is labeled “Insert Photo or Video” and tap that option
  5. You will now be presented with a box labeled photos, which will give you access to your media. Choose camera roll or photo stream depending on where your attachment is located.
  6. After taping either camera roll or photo stream, tap the item that you want to attach to the email.
  7. Tap the use button located in the top right corner to attach the item to the mail message.
  8. Complete your email and then send.

Don’t procrastinate about updating your iPad’s operating system. Many quirky little problems that we see are due to users still running 4.3.3.* Today, Apple releases iOS 6.0, the most recent update of its operating system for mobile devices. From Jason Miller, these two links provide you with information on what features are available in 6.0: from techcrunch.com, what you need to know to update to the new iOS; and from cultofmac.com, a summary of the new features in the update.

If you have any questions about updating your iOS or would like help updating from 4.3.3 to 6.0, please don’t hesitate to call or email eTech at 8-4832 or etech[at]as.ua.edu.

*How do you know what operating system is running on your iPad? Go to the Settings app and check under the General settings. Look for “About” in the list on the right and select that. Then you’ll need to look for “Version,” which will tell you what iOS you are running on your iPad.
