Translate App

Finally, there was a question and challenge about clearing previous translation text in the Translate app.  In class I could not find a clear text button.  In my exploration, I learned that you simply tap on Enter Text to clear previous and enter new text.  Pictured on the right:


Great class, great group.  Never stop learning!

Class Description

Many people use their iPhones to make calls, send text messages and take a few photos. However, our Apple iPhones are amazing devices. They offer many useful features that are largely hidden from everyday users. This is will focus on new features added since the release of IOS 14 in September 2020.

This class will teach you the following topics:

  • Modifying your iPhone and iPad Home Screen using Jiggle Mode.
  • Placing Widgets and Stacked Smart Widgets on the Home Screen (My favorite IOS 14 feature)
  • The iPhone App Library
  • Privacy Changes (Why do my apps keep asking for permission to track me)
  • New compact screens for phone calls and Siri 6.
  • Using the Translate app
  • Exploring the Magnifier
  • New Texting Functions using the Messages app.

Bring your fully charged iPhone to class for our exploration.
