Demo of setting up the iPHone 8 plus using VoiceOver via automatic settings from existing iPhone

In this demo I take you through setting up the iPhone 8 plus using the automatic settings update option from my iPhone 6s. 

iOS 11 demo – using the Control Centre on the iPad with VoiceOver

For those of us who use an iPad, you'll find that the Control Centre includes the app switcher, Control centre icons, Dock, and Suggestions.

In this demo I show you how to navigate the Control Centre on the iPad, and how to customise it.

note - the control centre icons are what an iPhone or iPod touch user would experience without the App Switcher orDock (including the Dock suggestions).

catching up with an update to the AirPods

In this demo, I show you how you can set the left or right AirPod to perform a different action including Siri, Play/Pause, Next Track, Previous Track, and off.

As I mention in the demo, I'm not sure when this update became available, but the software version that this demo is based on is 3.7.2 which you can check when the AirPods are connected in Settings, General, About, AirPods.

 

iOS 11 demo of using the Dock on the iPad with VoiceOver gestures/kb commands and having a play with the Side App switcher

Just showing off an iOS 11 feature with being able to access the dock from within an app, a note on suggestions on the Dock, and a bit of a play around with the side app switcher (the name of which I've probably got incorrect smile).

 

Tip demo on Apple TV os 11: Australia now has the tV app, and how to change the Home button back to normal rather than to the TV app.

In this demo, I alert fellow Australians to the arrival of the TV app on the Apple TV which integrates the various TV apps (and your movies) in to one app (Movies and TV shows are still on the Home screen).

With this update, the default function of the Home button has changed to taking you to the TV app, then if you press Home button again you'll go back to the Home screen.  As I like all of my Home buttons to work the same, I show you how to change it back to its previous default setting of taking you back to the Home screen.

Demo of updating from iOS 10 to iOS 11 using VoiceOver

I thought in this demo I'd take you through updating from iOS 10 to iOS 11 using VoiceOver.

I always find its handy to know how long that silent bit last when you loose speech when iOS is updating.

Demo of the O6 Remote Media Bluetooth device for controlling media and VoiceOver

In this demo I take you through a physical description of the O6 which is essentially a round device with a Centre button and a dial surrounding this button.  Either the Centre button and Ring dial can be press or held in for extended functionality and the ring dial itself can be turned clockwise or counter clockwise for more functionality.

Two modes Basic hold ring dial in until single long pulse or Advanced hold ring dial in until short two double pulses (vibrates.

In this demo, I take you through the functions that I use most of the time in either Basic or Advanced modes.

Demo of Google Home giving you your next bus, train etc time simply by asking

In this demo, I show you how easy it is to get the next bus or traing times from Google Home simply by asking.

To have this function work from your Home address or Work, you'll have to set these within the Google Home app.

After the recording I also asked for the next ferry here on the Central Coast New South Wales from Ettalong Beach to Palm Beach and Google Told me the next ferry time as well.

I also did several different locations for bus and train and got the same result: i.e. next time of a bus or train.

Here is hoping that Home Pod will do a similar thing.

Demo of Chromecasting from Google Play music to individual speakers and groups

In this demo I give you a brief demo of Chromecasting from Google Play Music on my iPhone to individual speakers in my house and speaker groups.

Like Airplay, VoiceOver speech stays local on your device whilst the music goes out to individual or group speakers.

Demo of using Google Home Speakers and Chromecast Audio groups

In this demo I show you how I have organised my Google Home Speakers and Chromecast Audio devices (attached to various speakers throughout my house), and then take you through setting up and using groups to pla audio.

I also demo my favorite couple of features that of being able to tell what is playing on a speaker, adjusting volume, and then being able to adjust individual speaker volumes within a speaker group.

For me, this is just a cost effective way of setting up speakers through out my house without having to spend to much money by using the existing speakers.
