Sharing the Magic of Share

The Magic of Share!

There was a question in my class recently that had a very familiar answer.

The question…”How do you save a picture you receive in a text message?”


The solution is quite hidden and not obvious. But to make a point related to this week’s Nugget, let me ask a few more questions?

  1. How do you print a web page in the Safari browser?
  2. How do you place a photo in a custom Album you have created?
  3. How do you create a PDF file from a document in the Notes app?
  4. How do you AirDrop a photo to a friend who is nearby?


This point….The solution to each of these questions is identical!!

Tap Share

This week’s featured Nugget encourages you to explore the magic of Share and all that it can do in the apps on your iPhone and iPad.

When you have a question about how to accomplish a function in an app, consider the Share icon as the gateway to many of the things you need to do. Please read more..

Your iPhone apps will have many hidden functions that are accessed using the Share icon.  Given the number of options that are presented with Share it almost makes the function magical.

IOS 13.2.2 – Time to Upgrade

IOS 13.2.2 is the seventh release of IOS 13 and we can now recommend the upgrade for many Senior Tech Club users.  Although there are still users citing concerns, the reports of issues have declined giving us confidence in the release.

There are a number of features in IOS 13 that we like for our community.  One example is the ability to route unknown callers (like robocallers or telemarketers) directly to voicemail.  We will soon be sharing our favorite IOS 13 features.

Eligible iPhones are iPhone 6s and later.

The most important step in the upgrade process is making sure you have a good backup of your iPhone’s data.  Issues are rare but a back also allows you to revert to your existing IOS version without loss of data.
