Brett’s iTip: When I create an appointment for say a lunch date, I like to reserve time on my calendar for actually getting to the restaurant. I used to add a separate calendar appointment for this, but now on the lunch date I can add “Travel Time” which helpfully blocks out my calendar before the appointment. It doesn’t require a location, but it does look like this is only available on iCloud-based calendars.

Jeff’s iTip: Speedtest by Ookla to check on the speed of your Internet connection. You can either visit www.speedtest.net from any web browser, or also use the iPhone or iPad app.
