iOS devices use a lot of gestures for accessing functions. The App Store offers all apps available for iOS. Settings enables you to change application permissions, account information, location services, and more.
- [Instructor] In the competition between Android versus iOS, it shocks me, as an Android user, how vehement iOS people are, Now, I love Apple products, as well. to my smart devices, I'm more of an Android guy. So, what I want to do is cover iOS for Android people. Number one, don't yell at me because I'm trying to get some basics across; and number two, yes, I am aware that there are different ways to do things depending on the version of iOS you're using. However, I've got one version in front of me and we're going to use that. Okay, you guys ready, here we go. First of all, let's take a look at our desktop. Now, the desktop is very different in iOS as compared to Android. it's going to appear on one of these pages. but it just goes there. There is no separate pile of applications that you can then move onto a desktop. however, they're all always there. There's no way to get around that. Now, first of all, I'm going to swipe down from the top on this one. Next, I'm going to go ahead and swipe from the right. so, on some Android devices swiping, I'm sorry, will give us some features, but they're not standardized. So, on this particular device, let's take a look. And this is what we call our Spotlight Search. So, these are all widgets. And there is some functionality in terms of how we configure widgets, however in the Android world, I got to tell you, the widgets that come with iOS are very clear and easy to use. Sometimes I'll install one Android app, I get to choose one or the other. Yeah, I can put them on my desktop but sometimes it can be frustrating in how I manipulate space. By putting all the widgets in one single swipe like this, and this is our Control Center. So, all the basic stuff, here's my flashlight, I can turn on Bluetooth, I can turn on wireless, whatever I might need to do, from one screen. If you've got a lot of programs running on your iOS, all you have to do is double-tap on your Home screen, and here are all the open applications. You can just pick one and go where you want to go. Androids have similar features, but it really varies a lot by the version of Android how to get to something like this. However, I will say Android does have a relatively similar function. Okay. Now the next thing I want to talk about are applications. So, the big place we go to applications on an iOS device is the App Store. So, I'm going to click on the App Store, and I want to find a program, Magic Tiles. This is a program I installed in another episode, Magic Tiles 3. Okay, so here's the game Magic Tiles 3. Now, if I want to install that game, all I have to do is click on Get. I like this one. Okay, so the program is installed, so I'm just going to open it. And wee, whatever this game is, I'm going to get out of here, because I'm not that terribly interested. Anyway, so installing is pretty easy. To uninstall it, I just hold down, and I get the little shake going here, and all I have to do is click on the X, and the program's uninstalled. Okay, so and we go ahead and hit that Home button and turn off those Xs. There we go. All right, so the next thing I want to talk about are permissions. Just as we see with Android, iOS applications do need permissions to do whatever they're going to do. And you have a wonderful granularity within iOS where you can change that if you want. Let me show you. So, I'm going to go into Settings. Now, all of your applications are all down here at the bottom, so I'm going to pick something, how about CVS. Now, while I'm in here, you can see what permissions this particular application wants. So, Location, Camera, Cellular Data, Notifications, whatever I might want to configure, that's done right here. So, the next thing I want to talk about are accounts. When you grab a new iPhone and you're setting it up, you have to have an iCloud account. That iCloud account, just like with Android devices, is the account that is set with this particular device. However, you can add lots of accounts if you need to, so let's take a look at that. Here, under Passwords & Accounts, there's some existing accounts, but let's hit Add an Account. And you can see Apple does a pretty good job of this. which would be rare, but here if I wanted to set up an exchange with Microsoft Exchange, a Google account, Yahoo, AOL, Outlook, and then I could put in a lot of others, too. So, adding email accounts on a Apple device All right, now the next one, is in the world of backup. So, what I want to do is let's talk about backup and iCloud. This is my buddy Shannon's phone, so I'm going to, sorry, Shannon, I'm showing people stuff. So, anyway, if we click on iCloud, that are going to be automatically backed up. You also notice that we have a full-blown iCloud backup. I got to give it to the Apple folks, when it comes to having a phone that dies or it gets dropped into a pond or whatever, to be able to recover is almost trivial. it's usually just a matter of logging in with your iCloud account onto your new phone, And not only will it load everything, it'll put the icons in the same place. Kudos to you, Apple. I know Android is right behind you, but this is on thing that Apple's always done a really good job on. Okay, the last one is Location services. Let me show you that. So, here we take a look under Privacy. And you'll see that Location Services are turned on. It also shows you exactly what devices will use those location services. like Find My iPhone, or if you're using things like Waze or other GPS tools like that, you're going to want Location Services running. It's an incredibly powerful tool. All right. Well, we've done a tour of Android and now we've done a tour of iOS. I hope that you Android folks are a little bit more willing to look into the world of iOS, and I hope you iOS people don't get so pompous, because I know you guys love Apple. (jazzy theme music)
