iOS 8.3 tips and tricks: See what your iPhone and iPad can do now - Pocket-lint

iOS 8.3 tips and tricks: See what your iPhone and iPad can do now - Pocket-lint | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
Apple has released iOS 8.3, it's biggest update yet to iOS 8 that was first launched alongside the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus in September 2014.  

The new OS from Apple brings a host of new features, tips and tricks. We've worked our way through the phone operating system to try and bring you as many of the features as possible to allow you to get as much out of the latest software on your phone without having to upgrade to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

Most of these tips are new to iOS 8, but we've also included some gems from iOS 7 that you might not have found yet. We'll be keeping an eye on things as new updates roll out and if you've got any tips of your own that we've not covered please feel free to add them to the comments below.

How to record your iPad screen using QuickTime Player on your Mac | iPad Insight

How to record your iPad screen using QuickTime Player on your Mac | iPad Insight | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
While I was surfing around the internet the other day, I came across a procedure that allows you to record the screen of your iOS device using QuickTime Player on your Mac.  As someone who could really benefit from this feature for demonstrative purposes, my curiosity was definitely peaked.  Add to that the fact that it is built into every Mac running Yosemite and that it’s completely free, and I knew that some of you, too, would really appreciate knowing how it works.  Here’s a quick tutorial based upon Aaron Douglas’ Blog post on The Dangling Pointer.

The article does not mention that this only works with iOS devices that use Lightning cables i.e. iPad Mini or newer, iPad 4th Gen or newer, iPhone 5 or newer. The cable must be plugged into the Mac for this to work.
