If you can’t put your iPad down or on your lap for some reason, and so can’t use two hands to type, there’s an easy way to split the keyboard making it easier for you to type with two thumbs whilst holding it. Have a look at how to do it here.
Here’s a very quick way to find out your Mac’s serial number - should you need it - in a matter of seconds.
Did you know that if you disconnect your Apple Wireless Keyboard via the Wi-Fi shortcut on your Menu Bar (or via Sytem Preferences/Bluetooth if you haven’t created such a shortcut), if you start typing something the keyboard will automatically turn itself on again and capture everything you’ve just typed. This can be very handy.
It doesn’t work if you turn off the keyboiard using the power button on the side. So if you need the keyboard to be off properly for a mo - like when you want to pair it to another device, for example - you should use the power button.
You never know when that little bit of information might come in handy.
Are you having trouble getting Firefox to input Apple’s special characters via the Character Viewer?
I’ve had reports of this lately and I’ve been investigating it. If this is happening to you, have a look at this follow-up I wrote to my post on inserting Apple special characters into your text. It will clarify things for you and explain how to get around it, particularly if you want to use Apple Color Emoji symbols.
