Since iOS 8.0, it has been possible to load the desktop version of some webpages in Safari in a comparatively easy manner.

Most people do the following to load a page:

1. Find the webpage.
2. Double-tap on the Share button.
3. Double-tap on "Load desktop site".

but there is a way of doing this that is much simpler.

To do it, find the "Reload" button and double-tap and hold on this button. A box will open from which you can choose to load the desktop site.

I just purchased a big Jambox and for the most part, I love it. The speaker phone is awesome and almost makes the $269 price from Amazon worth it, but one thing was just driving me crazy.

A variety of Bluetooth keyboards are now available for paired use with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Many of these are mini-keyboards with only a subset of the keys of the Apple Wireless Keyboard, or requiring the press of modifier keys like an "Fn" key to activate alternate functions. You can have VoiceOver announce these key functions by entering keyboard help mode or by visiting the practice gestures area of the Setting menu as an alternative to pressing the Control-Option-K keys on your keyboard.

I believe that I have figured out how to get an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to autocorrect with a bluetooth keyboard connected.

First, make sure that you have QuickNav turned off.

If you are not sure how to do this, just press the right and left arrows together on your keyboard.

Then, try this:

When VoiceOver tells you a word is misspelled, hit the Backspace key once.

Now a suggestions list pops up, but I doubt VoiceOver will tell you that it has.

The following describes the layout and functions of the Jawbone Jambox bluetooth speakers, popularly used with iOs devices, in short summary form.

Jawbone Jambox Mini:

I have a Mini and so far, I find the buttons on the top:- a Plus which is vol up, a Dash which is vol down; and a round one that does status, and can answer and hangup calls if you're in conference or speaker mode through it.

If you have a BrailleNote Apex BT from Humanware and an iOS device running 4.0 or later, you can use the Apex to both view, in braille, what VoiceOver says and to type, in braille, when you are in any edit field. Below are the steps to pair the two devices. This assumes that bluetooth is enabled on both the iTouch and BrailleNote, that you have not tried to pair the devices before in any way, and that the device name of your BrailleNote Apex has not been changed. The device name can be viewed by going to options, connectivity, setup options, computer name.
