iOS 6 logoSo now that iOS 6 is out, some of you with older devices running iOS 5 or iOS 4 might want to update. The new iPhone 5 already comes with iOS 6 installed, but the following iOS devices can be upgraded to the latest operating system software:

  • iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S
  • iPod Touch (4th & 5th generation)
  • iPad 2 and the new iPad (3rd generation)

Keep in mind that even though you may be able update to the latest software, some of the capabilities will be limited or not available depending on which model you have.

If you haven’t activated Apple’s free Find My Phone app on your iOS device, DO IT NOW! Though it’s not totally guaranteed you’ll get your mobile device back, the chances can be pretty good, such as what happened recently to a man who had his iPad stolen by a flight attendant and was able to recover it using the app.

If you’d like to protect your iOS device, follow these instructions: How to use Find my iPhone to track down a lost or stolen iPad.

NOTE: The Find My Phone app not only works on iOS devices, but on Apple iMacs and laptops too!

If you’re like me, keeping track of my Outlook e-mails, contacts and calendars are probably the most important functions of my mobile devices. If you haven’t set this up yet on yours, here are directions on how to do it:
