As time goes on, we’re all getting more and more aware of issues around personal privacy and security when it comes to the internet and apps. While it can feel like the only solution is to bin the computer and try out an agrarian lifestyle, there is a less drastic option. The winds are blowing towards better privacy arriving by default, and Apple is at the forefront of that. This issue, we’ll show you some privacy and security features built into iPadOS, which help you control who can know what about you. And to supplement that, we’ve got a guide to the new ‘Sign in with Apple’ feature, which enables you to sign into websites or apps without giving them your email address or other identifying information, so you can still…

privacy & security in ipados

IT WILL TAKE 30 minutes YOU WILL LEARN How to configure iPadOS’ privacy settings YOU’LL NEED An iPad running iPadOS Apple has focused big time on security and privacy in recent versions of iOS and in iPadOS. Whether it’s controlling what you share with websites you visit, or making sure the data on your device is hidden from prying eyes, there are a ton of settings to tweak so you can be as open or locked down as you choose. For example, iPads can no longer be tracked as they silently connect to public Wi-Fi access points you happen to be close to. Of course, no matter how many features there are, you’ll still need to use them and apply them in a way that keeps your data safe. An unlocked iPad left lying about won’t keep…

meet ‘sign in with apple’

IT WILL TAKE 20 minutes YOU WILL LEARN How set up accounts with apps and websites using the new Sign in with Apple feature YOU’LL NEED iPadOS 13 Apple’s service doesn’t share data about you with sites and apps you choose to sign into Sign in with Apple allows you to use your Apple ID and credentials to sign into some apps and websites. It only works with websites or apps that have chosen to participate in the program, and at the moment that’s a relatively small number. Hopefully, however, that number will grow and the ‘Sign in with Apple’ button will become as familiar as the buttons that enable you to sign in with your Google or Facebook accounts. The major difference between Apple’s service and others, however, is that Apple doesn’t share data about you…

master the share sheet

IT WILL TAKE 5 minutes YOU WILL LEARN How to customise the Share Sheet YOU’LL NEED iPadOS 13 If you share web pages, images and documents frequently, you will have noticed a new design to the Share Sheet in iOS 13.

The Share Sheet now consists of five options – Quick Share, Send To App, Actions for the current app, Favourites and Other Actions. The new look does take up more space, but it can be customised. The Quick Share row is home to frequent Mail, iMessage and AirDrop contacts, so you can quickly share with people listed here. The Send To App row allows you to send the message to another…

master safari’s new features

IT WILL TAKE 10 minutes YOU WILL LEARN How to access and use more than 12 new Safari features YOU’LL NEED iPadOS 13, and an internet connection At a glance, Safari for iPad in iPadOS might not seem that different from Apple’s browser in iOS 12, but a lot has changed. The latest version is packed full of new features, a dozen of which we’ll explore in the walkthrough. The main underlying change, however, is that Safari for iPad is now effectively a desktop-grade browser. What this means is that instead of taking the iPhone’s version of Safari and blowing it up for iPad, what you get on your tablet is now akin to the browsing experience on a Mac or PC. So when you’re using the likes of Google Docs and WordPress, you’ll get full-fat versions…

view movies and tv offline

IT WILL TAKE 15 minutes YOU WILL LEARN How to manage downloads in the TV app YOU’LL NEED iPadOS 13, an iTunes account There are thousands of movies and TV shows to enjoy in the Apple TV app on iPadOS, iOS and macOS. You can either buy or rent content from the iTunes Store, as you always have been able to do, access any previous purchases you’ve already made, and even enjoy the new shows available on Apple TV+, as long as you have bought an eligible device recently or subscribe to that service. If you have a fast internet connection, you can normally stream content straight to your device – and this is still the only way to enjoy Ultra HD content on devices such as the Apple TV 4K. However, you can also download TV…
