I like how there is now a "Tips" app which Apple will keep updating - providing details on iOS features.

This is huge. I had over 1gb of iMessage videos clogging up my iCloud backups - the only way previously to delete was to delete entire conversation or search through long message thread.

How about some good examples sourced from there that don't appear here? Otherwise this is more useful as a question comment than an answer...

I really hope they add a toggle for this feature in an upcoming iOS7 update as I got used to holding down on the shutter then releasing when I wanted the picture taken, to reduce shake and improve timing. 3rd party Camera apps are able to toggle this in iOS7.

comment How do I remove files from iTunes which have been deleted on disk?
Hrm. Just tried it again and it seems to be working. Either a recent update to iTunes 11 fixed this or I missed something before.

Unfortunately as of iTunes 11 this appears to no longer work. Invalid tracks are now added to the playlist.

Not backing up TO SD, rather using SD as additional storage and want that to be backed up via TM

@vcsjones great point, I believe it's exFAT but I could try reformatting it to HFS+ to test

It's not about dialing, it's about having a phone number in a contact, web page, or email where iOS' data detector turns it into a clickable link.

I've only tested it a bit but a space then x### seems to work. I suspect it will pick up a few other methods too. But tried with 'ex' instead of x and it didn't work.

comment What is a good Time Capsule substitute?
My understanding is that the ONLY supported way to use Time Machine over a wireless network is via an Apple Time Capsule. From my experience and research, trying to use Time Machine on a wireless drive/NAS is not only unsupported but extremely unreliable.
