iTandCoffee Club member Tim F got caught out recently by a Paypal debit that he wasn't expecting.
He had purchased some software a year ago and not realised that he had committed to an annual payment.
It can be tricky to find the place in PayPal where you can check what automatic payments are in place, and to stop any 'pre-approved' payments that you no longer wish to make.
There are the links to a couple of places to look:
Here is just one of the tips covered last week at the PTT Session called Exploring some amazing hidden features of the iPad and iPhone.
In this clip from the video of this session (available to purchase here if you don't have Premium or Online membership of this iTandCoffee Club), we look how you can quickly access some handy options with a single press on the Home Screen.
At today's fortnightly Saturday Tech Time user group (free* for members of the iTandCoffee Club and only $10 for others), Client Trish A raised the issue that she could not seem to open two PDF documents in side-by-side mode on her Mac. Whenever she opened a second (or third, or fourth) PDF, it would replace the one that she previously had open.
Why was this happening and how could she see her PDF documents as side-by-side windows.
Since recently featuring a Handy Hint about the Split View and Slideover features of the iPad (Using two apps or windows at once on the iPad - Split View and Slide Over), I have had a couple of clients who have contacted me about the fact that, once they activated their Safari App in slideover mode, they can not seem to then open any links in a full Safari screen.
The narrow Slideover windows persists whenever they tap a link.
(This is an article from almost exactly 12 months ago - which I am re-posting this week for a client who feared she had been hacked just this week, after he brother received a strange message that looked to be from her.)
Two clients asked me about this very scenario this week - one received an email from a friend and it showed that friend's name, but the email address 'behind' that name was some random email address (instead of the person's true email address).
The other was contacted by a friend who had received an email that had the client's name as sender, but where the email address was again a fake.
How did this happen? What should these clients do?
Subscriber Ruth D has asked if there is something she can do to stop her phone conversations from cutting out on her iPhone 7. She says this only started happening when she upgraded to the iPhone 7.
I received a lovely email from an iTandCoffee client who had just attended one of our PTT sessions - where the attendees were introduced to their wonderful built-in personal assistant, Siri.
This client said that she was so impressed with how smooth my skin looked in that Zoom Meeting!
I felt like a big fraud and here's why.
Client Anne B has asked whether there is a way to show two apps at once on her iPad screen.
The good news is that there certainly is a way to do this - and to even show three apps at once! Not only that, you can split you Safari and Files apps so that you can work with two windows of the same app.
At the PTT Session on Thursday May 7th, we talked about Siri and all the great things you can do without even touching your iPhone or iPad.
One of the questions asked at this session was about how you can ‘turn down’ Siri if 'she' (or 'he') is too loud.
This actually followed hot on the heals of another client question the day before - about how you can stop Siri from jumping in when you have 'Do Not Disturb' turned on, when 'she' hears something that sounds like Hey Siri.
The example where this happened to the client was during a play, where she had diligently activated 'Do Not Disturb'. But her phone started talking 'at her' during the play when it mistakenly heard Hey Siri.

If it drives you crazy that your iPad and/or Mac rings whenever your iPhone rings, fear not - there is a very easy fix for this!
The Calls on Other Devices is a feature that allows any device (as long it is running a recent iOS version) that is signed in to your iCloud account to also make and receive phone calls. If you don't like this feature, just turn it off.
