Brett’s Presentation Tip: I really like using my iPad to drive a presentation because I can glance down at the iPad screen to see my speaker notes or the next slide. But while I don’t do a lot of LIVE presentations any more, I STILL like using my iPad to give presentations through Zoom or Teams. While both Zoom and Teams have built-in methods to “share” your iPad screen, I like using the AirServer software on my PC or Mac to do this (www.airserver.com consumer license $19.99 and business license $39.99). AirServer turns my computer into an AirPlay receiver which means I can share my iPad’s screen through the “Screen Mirroring” function in the Control Center. I prefer this method because I can re-size the AirServer window on my computer so I can see more of the Zoom or Teams interface while still driving the presentation from my iPad.

Jeff’s Photos Tip: Access the “Get Info” feature in Photos in iOS 15.  Swipe up, or press the Info button. Here are some things you can do:

  • People identified in the photo (small circle, button left)
  • A caption field to describe the photo or video, and make it easier to find in Search
  • Items detected by Visual Look Up
  • If the photo was shared with you in Messages or another app
  • The date and time the photo or video was taken; tap Adjust to edit the date and time
  • Camera metadata such as lens, shutter speed, file size, and more
  • Where the photo or video was taken; tap the link to view the location in Maps
