offload your ipados files

iPads and iPhones don’t have expandable storage – but you can use external USB sticks and memory cards to transfer files or store things you don’t need to keep on your device. Things are easier if you own an iPad Air or iPad Pro equipped with USB-C, since you can connect USB-C sticks directly. However, often you’ll need an adapter, especially when using a memory card, or an iPad or iPhone equipped with Lightning. In that case, to connect USB sticks, you’ll need the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter or the Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter; to connect memory cards, the Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader or the USB-C to SD Card Camera Reader. While USB sticks don’t use as much power as external hard drives, they still need a…

do more with your airpods

Apple now has three sets of AirPods in its range, and the features it added to make the most of them in iPadOS 14 show how serious it is about them iPadOS 14 brings some great new features to your AirPods Perhaps the most technically impressive of the new features is spatial audio, available on AirPods Pro and Max. Enabled by default on apps that support it, spatial audio is like surround sound for headphones, with a twist. The twist is that your AirPods Pro/Max now know when and how you move your head and use that data to anchor the sound stage, so the virtual ‘speakers’ stay in the same place in the room, even if your head doesn’t. Device switching The most useful of the new additions though is automatic device switching.…
