    Apple Stops Selling iPod’s ! 

    Apple Stops Selling iPod’s!Apple Stop selling Ipods after 16 years

    After 16 years Apple have stopped selling all their basic iPod’s and only selling their Touch model!

    They have quickly withdrawn their popular basic Nano and Shuffle iPod from their website, leaving just their touch model. The touch is an IOS device and is basically just an iPhone without the phone part. This will annoy a lot of people who just want a basic device to play their music while running or on the beach. The Touch of course will do that but it is a lot larger, heavier, fragile and its battery life is tiny compared to the Nano or Shuffle.

    The iPod nano and shuffle will still be available from third party stores such as amazon until their stocks run out. If you are very attached to your older device it might be worth picking up a spare until while you still can.

    How do I turn my Iphone into a USB Modem?

    How do I sync calendars between 2 iPhones?

    Luckily it is extremely easy to turn your Iphone into a wireless modem in order to connect your laptop / PC /  Device to the internet.

    First thing is to make sure your phone line provider has enabled Hot spotting, if not you will need to get them to enable it.

    Now go into your Iphone’s Settings menu scroll down to Personal Hotspot, go into this section and turn on the Hotspot and select USB only.

    Now connect your USB lead to the bottom of the Iphone and the other end to your Laptop / PC / Device. It will then install some drivers and connect you to the internet.

    Thats it, you can also connect to the internet via WIFI and or Bluetooth if you setup the other options in the Personal Hotspot menu.

    How do I sync calendars between 2 iPhones?

    How do I sync calendars between 2 iPhones?

    Unfortunately Apple does not currently provide a direct method within IOS for syncing 2 or more Iphones, Ipads, Ipods etc with each other.

    The easiest and simplest  method is just to sync the devices to the same service

    e.g. Google Calender, ICloud, Microsoft exchange….

    But that does mean sharing a single account with someone else, if you don’t want to do this you could set up multiple calendars on your device –  a shared (synced) calender and a private calender. (when adding events you can select which calender you wish to add them to)
