Re: iPhone X Setup

So let me get this right. You didn't need to restore from a backup stored by iTunes? Did it transfer everything, or do you then need to sign in again to everything? (An encrypted backup in iTunes has "everything.") Or is it using an iCloud backup (which is limited)? How long was the transfer proces...

Hey Ray,
How about a post to the SMUG forum from your new X asap Friday?
O.K. I have started a new thread to describe the setup process.

iPhone X Setup

Well, I got my iPhone X about 2:30 on Friday, Nov. 3 ... and couldn't believe how easy it was to set up: 1. After opening the box, a press of the side button brought up a bright, crisp "Hello" screen, which prompted me to "Swipe Up" (first attachment). 2. After choosing "English" as the language to ...

If you own, or are considering owning, an Apple Watch, you should consider downloading the FREE Apple Watch User Guide from the iBooks Store.
Just launch iBooks, enter the Store, and search for Apple Watch!

Re: iPhone X Order

Lucky, or you're more charming than me. Possibly both, although I would guess that persistence was also key. I spent about eight minutes repeatedly launching and quitting the Apple Store app on my iPad before getting through. I just now ordered a black "Survivor Strong for iPhone X" case from Griff...

Re: iPhone X Face ID

However, it may turn out to seem socially a little weird to look intently at your iPhone when buying a Latte instead of discretely touching the Home button! I would hope that looking at your iPhone "casually" rather than "intently" would work to unlock your iPhone X. I will just have to buy one to ...

Re: Add a mailbox or folder

Bob,

This worked fine for me on my iPad Air 2 running iOS 11.0.3. (see screenshots). The only thing I can think of regarding a possible difference is that I have an IMAP Olypen account, and you may have a POP account. In that case, you may have to make the new mailbox on your Mac.

Good Luck, ;)

Re: Tip to turn on Dictation
