How to Add and Manage Live Video in Keynote on the iPad

Brett’s iPhone Tip: We all know how to “Mute” yourself while on a phone call on your iPhone, but if you tap and hold (for about 4-5 seconds) on the Mute button, you can actually place the call on hold. This might be a silly little tip, but when you “Mute” the person who you called cannot hear you, but you can still hear them. But if you put the call on “Hold” then you are muted, and you can’t hear the other side either.
(I’ve only been able to test this on AT&T, but I’ve seen some reports that this only works on AT&T and T-Mobile, and may not work on Verizon or Sprint. Also, some people report that when you put a person on hold, they hear music, but I haven’t been able to verify that.)

Jeff’s iOS Tip: Customize the text size in a specific app. Go to Settings -> Control Center -> and add the Text Size icon. Now when you are using an app, invoke the Control Center and tap the Text Size button.  At the bottom left, tap [this app] Only.  You can then increase (or decrease) the text size only in that specific app.
This is one of the 50 tips in the MacRumors post by Tim Hardwick.
