    This was a very helpful video – concise and practical. Is there a way to remove the list of updated apps? It is really not necessary for me to see all of the apps that have been updated and the dates they were updated every time I go to update.

    Thanks.

      No. Just ignore them. Think of it as a log of all of your updates. just information only, no need to have to look at it. All computers and devices have logs of activities like installs — this one is just very easy to find.

      It is built into iOS 7 for the iPhone (not the iPad).

    Very helpful video Gary…Thanks! I’m amazed at how many people are complaining about iOS7. I feel it’s because they haven’t taken the time to play w/ it & try to understand it. It’s a very cool OS that makes the Apple experience that much better.

    I have a Gmail account set up in the Mail app and when I swipe from right to left I get the choices More and Archive, but what I would like is for Trash to be the choice
    Is there a way to make that happen?
    thx

    Mail…. is there a way to delete all?
    Seems I’ve had to tap, delete, tap, delete for years now and it still looks like my only options are: edit, tap, tap, tap or swipe, delete, swipe, delete.
    big time waster. didn’t know if I’ve over looked this handy feature or if you know of an app that applies this feature?
    THANKS for your videos! I always learn!

      You have to do each one, yes. So the question is: why so much email to delete? I’d imagine I use email much much more than the average person, and I never have this problem. Is it that you don’t check email that often? Or, you get a lot of spam?

    I have iOS 7 but I do not see the compass app. How do I find it.

      6 years ago

      Do you have an iPhone? The compass app is only on the iPhone.

    Thanks for the video, very informative.

    With OS X 10.9 “Mavericks”, features that were only previously available in iOS, such as iBooks were implemented. Do you think Apple will introduce Compass for the iPad in iOS 8?

      Your guess is as good as mine. But why not just use a third-party app for that?
