Apple today shared new iPad tutorial videos on its YouTube channel, which appear to be aimed at customers who have purchased the new sixth-generation iPad with Apple Pencil support. Apple has also aggregated all of the videos on an iPad how to website.
The first video, which is a minute long, focuses on using the Instant Markup feature that’s designed to allow users to draw on and annotate screenshots on the iPad. The tutorial walks through every step of the process, from capturing a screenshot on iPad using the Home button and the power button to using the Apple Pencil to mark it up to sharing the finished product.
Apple’s second tutorial video covers Split View multitasking to use two apps at the same time. The video instructs users on accessing the dock to open two apps at the same time, and then it covers drag and drop techniques.
Several other unlisted tutorial videos cover features like using the iPad’s keyboard, using the Files app, working with multiple emails, and sketching in the Notes app.
Apple has shared several tutorial videos like this in the past, which are often tied to new releases. Tutorial videos can typically be found on the separate Apple Support YouTube channel, but these new tutorial videos are on the company’s main channel for new iPad owners.
The new sixth-generation iPad went on sale last week after its debut at Apple’s March 27 educational event. The new tablet, which is priced at $329, boasts a new A10 Fusion processor and support for the Apple Pencil.
Apple today shared a new “Groceries” ad that’s designed to highlight the ease of using Apple Pay with Face ID on the iPhone X.
In the short 12 second spot, which will likely be shown on TV, YouTube, and social media networks, a woman shopping for produce at the grocery store uses an iPhone X and Apple Pay to make her purchases.
The fruit she buys is then crafted into an elaborate sea scene with a shark made from watermelon, banana dolphins, watermelon waves, pineapple palm trees, and more.
Apple in recent weeks has shared several videos focusing on Apple Pay features on the iPhone X. “Fly Market,” published in late March, for example, featured a man dancing through an open air market making purchases with just a glance, while a second spot with the same actor demonstrated Apple Pay Cash.
Update: Apple has uploaded several additional short iPhone X videos, all of which feature Apple Pay on iPhone X. “Coffee” and “Kicks” highlight a traditional in-store Apple Pay purchases, while “Grooming” features an in-app Apple Pay purchase.

Okay so this isn’t the most mind-blowing news story you’ll read today, but it’s a useful new Pocket feature that’s long been requested by users. To someone who hasn’t used the app for a while, I must say I’m surprised to learn that highlighting wasn’t already a feature. Not that it matters, now, as the latest update includes the ability to make passages of text a little bit yellow.
Version 18.104.22.168 was released yesterday and disabling Auto Play while listening is the only other notable improvement with this release.
If you’ve never used it before, Pocket is a storage place for all the articles you want to read later. You can use the browser extensions to add articles, then read them later through the site or mobile app. The Android app is receiving a new update, improving on the text-to-speech playback feature, with more functionality available in the beta channel.
Pocket already had a text-to-speech feature, named ‘Listen,’ where you could let one of Google’s voices read your articles out loud.
Outside of Samsung’s yearly announcement of a new Galaxy Note, it’s rare to see anything interesting happening with a stylus. However, the latest update to Google Play Books comes with some new behavior that makes a stylus much more useful with things like college textbooks and other reference material. Now when you drag a stylus over some text, it instantly switches into selection mode and pops up the action menu as soon as the selection is done.
Timed with the debut of iOS 11, Apple has uploaded three new tutorial videos for iPad owners, offering brief demonstrations of some of the operating system’s tablet-centric features. AppleInsider – Frontpage News
