First, bring up your keyboard on the screen. If you push and hold on the bottom right key, your options will pop up. When you choose undock, your keyboard will move up to the middle of the screen.

How to set up automatic updates on your Apple computer for Mavericks

Today we will be telling you how to easily set up automatic updates on your Apple computer for Mavericks.

First, you will need to open the App Store making sure that your Apple I.D. is logged in. You can double check that you are logged in by looking on the right side of the screen under Quick Links and it should say Welcome (your name.)1

Then, you will need to go up to the apple on the top of your screen and go down to System Preferences. You can also access this by going to your dock to click on the System Preferences icon.2

Then, you will need to go to the App Store icon.3

Once in there, you can decide to check a variety of things. You can decide to choose “Automatically check for updates”  and then you can customize the options below. It is a good idea to have all of them checked so you know you aren’t missing anything. The final option is “Automatically download apps purchased on other Macs” which means that it can update downloads that have happened on other Macs that your Apple I.D. is logged into.4

Next, when you have an update, you will be able to see that by looking at the App Store icon when it has a small red number next to it. So then you can open the App Store again and click the Updates icon on the top of the screen to see what they are.55-1

Once you have done that, you can see what updates are available. You can then click the down arrow next to Update All and decide to Install Now, Try in an Hour, Try Tonight, or Remind Me Tomorrow.6

That is how you can easily set up automatic updates on your Apple computer for Mavericks. Thank you for tuning in and we hope this was very helpful to you.

Accessibility Options on your iOS Device

 

In this post, you will learn how easy it can be to change certain settings on your iOS device. Readability is a huge factor for some people so this post is perfect for them!

First, you will need to go into “Settings.”

1

Make sure “General” is highlighted on the left.

2

Then you will go to “Accessibility” on the right.3

The first one is called “Larger Text” so you can make your text look bigger for your iPad.45     The next one is called “Bold Text.” When you turn this on, the iPad will need to restart so just give it a minute. Once it restarts, you will be able to see that the text is bolder in some areas.    67

The next one is  “Button Shapes” and it makes things you can click on look like buttons.910

The next one is “Increase Contrast” to darken colors and reduce the whiteness.9

“Reduce Motion” makes the images in the background of the iPad not move.12

The last one is “On/Off for Labels” to make the labels easier to read.13

And those are your Accessibility Options for your iOS Device. Check out our video on Youtube to watch it happen!
