Taking screenshots is something that everyone of us does on a daily basis if not really often. It allows you to capture glitches on the screen, show off your high scores, and making tutorials. Unlike iOS devices (iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad) taking a screenshot on your Apple TV require a bit of work but we will get through that together.

The first thing you want to do is take out your Mac with Xcode 7 or higher installed and turn on your Apple TV, of course. Once you have those materials out, connect your tvOS to your Mac computer and open Xcode. Now you either go to Window > Devices in the menu bar or press Command + Shift + 2 as a shortcut. Select Apple TV on the sidebar and click on Take Screenshot.

That’s correct, before you can share any files with an iPhone or iPad you must know how to set it up correctly and enable it. AirDrop only let you share files with other iOS devices that are running on iOS 7/8/9 and Mac OS X Yosemite.

Before showing you how to get AirDrop to work, please make sure that:

  • Check for AirDrop compatibility from a particular app
  • A Sending and Receiving device has AirDrop turned On
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are enabled

Most users once awhile tried to clean up their iOS devices by removing unused apps, data, and photos. What about people with a jailbroken iPhone or iPad with a bunch of tweaks and themes that are no longer in use? That’s when they started to freak out. It’s easy to remove one or two, but it will surely take forever to get rid of many tweaks because each one required a “respring” before you can process to the next.

However, the founder of Cydia has thought about this situation that’s why he added the queue feature. It allows you to easily uninstall multiple Cydia tweaks at the same time and only needed to restart the device once. Here is how you can do it.

When Steve Jobs in his June’11 WWDC speech introduced iCloud to a packed house of cheering Apple enthusiasts and media; anticipation of a technological marvel was sowed. The release of the iOS 5 recently brought to rest all speculations and buzz related to this amazing creation from Apple Inc. – The iCloud.

The new iOS 5 comes loaded with an online backup and syncing service iCloud, however, its allotted 5 GB space is considered by many to be too economical a space for geeks, without much storage space to spare. Thereby, the next option would be to maximize your back-up and storage space. So more the space, you can save and back-up all the apps, Contacts, messages, calendar events, and other important data stored on your iPhone to Apple’s remote servers rather than your local computer. And this is applicable for all your Apple devices like the iPad, iPod touch and the iMac.
