Apple: Use Keynote Remote to control your Keynote presentation

Brett’s iTip: First the most important reminder - you can’t have TouchID WITHOUT a passcode - you still ALWAYS need a passcode. When I used TouchID on an iPhone, I really only used one thumb, but with the iPad Air it makes sense to have multiple fingers for TouchID depending on the way that you’re holding the iPad. You can go into Settings - TouchID & Passcode and add more fingers, and even rename the fingers that you’ve used for TouchID. You can even add a family member’s finger to unlock your iPad.

Jeff’s iTip: You’ve always been able to copy an entire text message by tapping and holding and selecting “Copy” from the pop-up menu, but that copies all of the text in the message. If you only want to copy part of the text, create a screenshot of the text message and then in the screenshot drag your finger across the text to select and copy it - this works because the iPhone recognizes the text through the Live Text feature.
