Apple has released another round of software updates for Apple devices. iOS/iPadOS 16.4 and macOS Ventura 13.3 updates were released on March 28th.
There is a long list of security patches in the update, making it an important one to install ASAP - on each of your Apple devices.
The updates certainly are coming thick and fast with iOS 13. Yet another update, iOS 13.2.2 was released in the past week - fixing ongoing issues with phone call drop outs and various other things.
Today (Sunday Nov 3) is THE DAY for any of you who have older iPhones and iPads.
You must make sure your iPhone 5 or older, and your iPad 2, 3 and mini series 1 is updated to the latest version of iOS possible - otherwise you will use the ability to use GPS, email, the App Store and more.
If you don't complete this update before 11am today, all is not lost. Here is the link to an handy hint (for iTandCoffee Club members) showing how to update your device. (Not yet a members? Find out more about the iTandCoffee Club here.)
You will still be able to do it in future - but only if you have a computer (using iTunes / Mac's Finder).
If you don't get your device updated in time and then find that you need assistance with the update, iTandCoffee can help.

Last week (on March 28th), Apple released another major update to to our iPhone and iPad operating system iOS - iOS 10.3. Hot on the heals of that major update came another update overnight on April 4th - a 'fix' release, iOS 10.3.1.
If you visit Settings -> General -> Software Update, you should notice that the latest version awaiting download and install is 10.3.1 (which will incorporate 10.3 if you hadn't already installed that update).
iOS 10.3/10.3.1 provide some new functionality, a major overhaul of the 'file system' that manages everything on your device, as well as some significant changes in the location of some very important Settings.
See later in this article for details of what is included in these latest updates.
Should you update now?
Updating to this latest iOS version can be done at any time, with a couple of major warnings that need to be heeded before proceeding.
Where have iCloud settings gone?
Having updated to iOS 10.3 on March 28th, I had not yet had a chance to review the changes that it brought.
I was therefore surprised this week when I went to Settings to look at my iCloud setup, and found that the iCloud settings were no longer where they used to be. Drat. More changes to iTandCoffee guides and presentations!
It took me some time to work out just where they had gone.
Your settings for iCloud are now found at the very top of the Settings screen.
You should see your name with an > on the right-hand side.
Tap on this to view all sorts of information about your Apple ID, payment method, iCloud, iTunes and App Store, Family Sharing, and the devices that are using your iCloud (as shown in the first image of this article).
What is in iOS 10.3 and 10.3.1?

On Thursday and Friday this week, I was hugely frustrated by problems with downloading software updates from Apple.
For an iTunes update attempted at a client's, and for my own downloads at home on Friday, the 'progress bar' was showing that the update would take at least 24 hours! At my client's, it said we would have to wait 50 hours for an iOS 9.0.1 download.
In the end, my El Capitan download for Mac took about 9 hours - on our extra fast broadband Telstra cable service, that should have seen it take less than an hour.
Well, I have just read the following article in The Age about the reason for my problems. There is a fault in an under-sea cable between Singapore and here that is causing slow downloads and streaming from Apple for some users.
