"If you sync your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on your Mac, you know that the first thing iTunes does is back it up (unless you've told it not to). Depending on the size of your device and how much data you have stored on it, this can gobble up dozens of gigabytes of space. Did you know you can move those backups to an external hard drive? You can, and we can walk you through how. "

Gebruik je iPads in jouw klas? Dan zijn deze posters wellicht handig om te gebruiken. Je moet ze natuurlijk wel eerst even vertalen in het Nederlands.
