I know that I have cautioned everyone about issues with iOS 13, but there is a new feature that is really handy in the Mail app.
You can now scan a document (single or multi-page) straight into an email in the Mail app - using a new 'scan' feature that is able to detect document edges and automatically scan/crop and create a single or multi-page PDF.
With a feature like this build right in to your iPhone (and iPad), there should be very little (or no) need for a separate scanning device these days. I have a scanner built into my printer, but never use it any more.
Interested in finding out more about this one?

A warning to Mac users who are running Microsoft Office 2011 or earlier: if you upgrade to the new macOS Catalina, you will lose access to these Office apps and have to purchase the new Office 365 suite.
Even worse, you could lose the Outlook folders and messages that were stored on your Mac (if you were using MS Outlook for your mail).
I was just about to write an update on iOS 13 and the problems that I have been encountering, when I noticed that Apple has release yet another update to iOS 13, to bring us to 13.2.
This has to be a record for the number of updates in such a short time - that must be about the 6th in 6 weeks.
Two iTandCoffee clients had this same question this week - one on a Windows PC and one on a Mac.
If you have an IMAP email account installed on your Mac or Windows computer, you may find that (mysteriously) there seem to be be two copies of Sent mail, even though only one one email went to the recipient. The good news is that there is an easy fix for this.
The latest operating system for the Mac, macOS 10.15 Catalina, was released on Oct 8. If you are interested in learning about its great new features, we have included some information below.
As you can see in the image here, one of the great new features is the ability to use your iPad as a second display using a feature called Sidecar.
But, as we always recommend, don't rush in to downloading and installing this latest macOS Upgrade. Not only is it likely to have teething problems, but you may also find that certain Apps no longer work - including some key apps that many people rely on every day.
This could mean that the free Mac upgrade ends up costing you money for upgrades to these other apps.
If you are already on iOS 13, a new update has arrived to fix a variety of issues, some introduced by iOS 13.1.2. Lots of people were reporting problems with phone call dropouts after installing iOS 13.1.2, so it is definitely worth installing iOS 13.1.3 if your iPhone is already on iOS 13.
If you haven’t yet installed iOS 13, it’s still worth delaying until the ongoing issues have been fully ironed out. As you can tell, there have been lots of issues so far and the need for Apple to release several 'fix' updates in a short space of time.
Here is an article with some details about iOS 13.1.3.
A warning if you don't already have iOS 13 - check your Settings!
The months just seem to fly by. We held yet another iPad and iPhone user group at iTandCoffee on Friday October 11th and discussed (amongst other things) the following main topics.
Client Alison J fell in love with one of the beautiful images that recently appeared on her Windows 10 lock screen, and asked me if there is a way that you can save such an image - so that it can remain your fixed lock screen image, or for other purposes.
The good news is that you can.
Client Julie M has asked the following question:
"I am wanting to download two financial apps, a simple one to keep track of the household budget and another that provides more options such as recording income and expenditure along with invoices and payments. Do you have any recommendations for either or both?"
Here are some suggestions ...
Client Nicola has asked a question about dealing with scam callers and how to block them.
Blocking a scam caller is easy on your iPhone - we'll walk through the steps below. But it is also handy to know that Apple has included a new feature for dealing with scam callers, one that many people will be keen to turn on. Read on for more details.
