Things like this happen because the Media Type definition in the printer is mis-configured. In this case "Photos" isn't using a tray with photo paper, it's looking for a CD Label because somehow in the printer the media type for photo became "CD Label" The User Guide is usually the best place to start with when addressing issues like ...

After a lot of other ideas the person I was doing this for was able to give me an old WiFi network that the iPad had connected to. Once I had internet access on the ipad it was "easy" Using Siri I enabled voice over (Say "Enable Voice Over"). Then I went into bluetooth settings and switched on bluetooth whcih I did by asking siri for the ...

I hate to say it, but it's probably not the battery. However, he ultimately declared this to be a hardware problem, not a battery problem because he said he looked in some document that said that this iPad model would draw its power directly from the charging wire, rather than the wire charging the battery and the iPad drawing from the battery. Thus, if it'...

I have been using Ethernet on the iPad in a commercial setting for a number of years. The solution with the Apple Lightning Camera adapter, a powered USB hub and a USB to Ethernet adapter is very clunky and unfortunately also very unreliable. I've tried this with various combinations of cables, hubs and adapters. Sometimes it would work great, other times it ...

More recently, I've done this with numerous iOS devices like this: Apple lightning camera adapter attached to the device. This is a gizmo with a lightning plug and then sockets for lightning and USB plugs. A powered lightning cable plugged into the lightning socket of the camera adapter. Can be plugged into a computer or a wall socket, but it has to be ...

Buy a USB-drive compatible with both machines (may require an adapter or two). Export the photos you want to copy, from the eMac to the USB-drive as JPEG files. Attach the USB-drive to the iPad and tell Photos to import from the drive.

That's not the way it works on my iPad Pro. Pressing the Power button turns the iPad display off and on. Holding it down for a few seconds brings up the shutdown slider. If you can't turn the display off and on what do you do when screen turns off? Press the Home button? Really only thing you're missing, it sounds, is your ability to turn the screen off ...

An iPad can provide HDMI output using an adapter. You can purchase an HDMI-input adapter (like for capturing game play) for your PC and treat it like any other video input device. Then use a program that can mix two video input streams.

The 5KPlayer software (https://www.5kplayer.com) has AirPlay/DLNA support, as well as support for wired connections. The site looks kind of questionable, but VirusTotal comes back clean for both the website and the installer file, so it should be alright.

I tried connecting a DVD drive to my iPhone 8 by an Apple Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter and I was not successful in reading any discs. The adapter does work with the USB 3 flash drive I tried to make sure I didn't have a hardware failure elsewhere. This was with an iPhone 8 and not an iPad Pro so perhaps not a valid test. The iPad Pro is more "...

You are correct that notes on iOS 13 does not want a finger to mark up on an iPad. It does work on the iPhone. Fingers are for navigation on the iPad build of Notes. I would recommend you draw in another app with your finger like Linea sketch. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/linea-sketch/id1094770251

iOS currently doesn't support handwriting recognition on OS level. There are apps for the Pro models (with Apple Pencil) that recognize handwriting, but this won't help you with Google Sheets or similar. Things appear to be more bright with iOS 14 (the version to be released later in 2020). Apple will introduce handwriting recognition on OS level, at least ...

One way is use the Mazec key board app http://www.product.metamoji.com/en/mazec/ It sort of works with normal handwriting but i think I think -Palm Pilot recognition was better Mazec suggested the last part after the hyphen so some things have improved the app provides an area to write in that replaces the keyboard

There’s no native way read a digital disc on an iPad, and I don’t think a 3rd party manufacturer makes such a solution. You will need to extract these files from the discs on a computer, macOS or Windows, then upload them to whatever cloud service you’re using to make them available on the Internet to your iPad. If you don’t have a cloud service, iCloud is ...

No, it is unfortunately not possible in any other app or by changing settings in the iPad. Apple has explicitly forbidden apps to record videos while they are in the background, and iOS prevents this from happening. As Apple writes here for app developers: "Camera usage is prohibited while in the background."

You might want to try downloading SMART Notebook Basic for Windows, then the SMART Notebook for iPad app and make sure to download the SMART Notebook Maestro Add-On as well. We use this combo with Macbook Airs/Pros, (not Windows,) and the laptop connects to the iPad, which becomes a virtual whiteboard. I'm not sure if it works with Windows, though. It just ...

There is a free app called LonelyScreen that will mirror an iPad or iPhone by turning your PC into an AirPlay receiver like a TV (currently a free trial) I’m not affiliated with the developer and I actually found it by doing a Google search. I haven’t tested it yet because I don’t have a PC and I was afraid to try boot camp until I started researching it on ...

It sounds like you need a Thunderbolt dock, not a USB hub. Maybe one like this: https://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/TB3PRODCK/ The reason I suggest a Thunderbolt dock is because I have yet to see a USB hub or dock that provides more than 15 watts to a downstream data port. I assume you are using a Lightning to USB-A cable to plug in the iPad, that's going ...

The StarTech HB30A3A1CST 3-Port USB-A/1-Port USB-C Hub includes a single charge & sync port - which matches the 2.4 amp power output supplied by a standard 12W iPad Pro 2017 (10.5") power supply (I believe this would work equally for the earlier generation iPad Pro which ships in some countries with a lower-output power supply): Charge-and-sync ...

Control Option Left Bracket and Control Option Right Bracket should allow the user to switch between the two apps displayed […] If you […] try it twice, you should find it indeed moves you to the application on the other side of the screen. https://www.applevis.com/forum/switching-between-apps-split-view-ipad-using-keyboard-commands

Two things to overcome. First is you need to navigate to the app and to the right of where it says open - choose the box with the up arrow and underneath the pop up, the gift option arises. Second, only paid apps can be gifted. You will have to enter an email address as an AppleID for the gift to be sent and I have never entered an AppleID that didn’t exist....

This answer isn't meant to be flippant or disparaging in any way. The purpose here is to present a critical evaluation exercise to evaluate the scenario from a wider perspective. Closed windows and tabs should be effortlessly retrievable, in my opinion. Is there any clear solution to this? Is there a browser extension, perhaps? Emphasis mine. There's no ...

In order to achieve this you will need a hub which contains both a USB C port for power delivery, as well as a USB C port for data delivery. If you want to stick with Anker (which is a pretty high quality company from my experience), you can go with this hub: Anker PowerExpand+ 7-in-1 USB C Hub. Note the distinct power delivery (pd) and data throughput ports ...

The logitech combo touch keyboard for the iPad actually has a button in the top row to call up the keyboard on the screen. I do a lot of voice dictation instead of typing, so I like this feature when the keyboard is attached to my iPad.

Use Apple Configurator 2 to update the app on your iOS device, but before disconnecting the iOS device, copy the iOS app out of the Configurator's temporary directory. See: How do I download an iOS App (IPA) file to my Mac after iTunes 12.7 update? for how to find this directory. If the media assets of an app are not encrypted or obfuscated, you can ...
