Earlier this week, whilst working on a new iPad/iPhone guide (one of the many written by iTandCoffee and available here), I stumbled across what appears to be quite a peculiar problem in iOS 11.2.5. It seems that there is a glitch in the Reminders app, impacting the (usually) really handy Remind me at a location feature.
So often when I am working on my Mac, I quickly need to view my desktop - usually to find a file that I have saved there temporarily, or a screenshot that I just took.
I would write a handy hint on this one, but found a really good article this week that says it all - offering four different ways that you can quickly get to your desktop. Here's the link to this article.

There has been such a lot of publicity lately about Apple deliberately slowing older devices after a recent iOS 11 update, so that many iPhone 6's, 6S's and 7's are noticeably - and often frustratingly - slower. It has been dubbed 'battery-gate' - and daughter number 2 in this household is one such frustrated iPhone 6 user.
Have you ever noticed that you seem to lose emails that you don't remember ever deleting on your iPad iPhone? Perhaps, when you go searching for them, you find them in the 'bin' mailbox and wonder how they got there?
This may be due to a setting on your iPad or iPhone, one which results in the deletion of several emails when you think you are just deleting one.
Find out more about this setting, and how to ensure that you only delete intended emails, in this week's handy hint.
It feels like it wouldn't be a fortnightly iTandCoffee newsletter without news of another software update to iPads, iPhones and Macs. Wednesday morning (24/1) saw the arrival of iOS 11.2.5. The last update was 11.2.2, so who knows where 11.2.3 and 11.2.4 got to!
A bit later in the week, MacOS 10.13.3 was also released with security patches and a fix for the Messages app (to fix out of order conversations).
A look at the iOS update
I have been using iOS 11.2.5 since Wednesday with no detrimental effects and have not seen any negative reports online, so it appears safe to install. As always, make sure you do a backup first!
iOS 11.2.5 heralds the imminent launch of Apple's HomePod - a new product to rival (and, says Apple, to outclass) Google Home and Amazon Echo.

An amazingly handy feature on the iPad and iPhone is the ability to sign a PDF document that your receive in a mail message, then quickly and easily send the signed version back to the sender - without even having to print it or find a pen!
The 'Markup' feature on the iPad and iPhone (and also available in Preview and the Mail apps on the Mac) allows you to 'draw on' a PDF and/or add a signature to the document. That signature can then be saved, so that it can be used again and again to sign documents that you receive.
