Brett’s iPadOS 15 Tip: New in iOS 15 / iPadOS 15 in the Files app, is the ability to “Use Groups” when viewing your files. Tap either the bullet list/grid icon on iPad, or the circle-ellipsis on iPhone, and you’ll see the option to tap “Use Groups” at the bottom. By default, this will group your files by “Kind” but you can tap again to group your file by “Date” or “Size. You’ve always been able to “Sort” your files by “Kind” but I like using the “Group By” option - it’s just more visually intuitive to me.

Jeff’s iPhone Tip: Medical ID helps first responders access your critical medical information from your iPhone’s Lock screen, without needing your passcode. They can see information like allergies and medical conditions as well as who to contact in case of an emergency. It’s easy to set this up and you (and all your family members) should do this. Here is Apple's Support Page on how to set this up in the Health App.
