Upcoming Tech Briefings
Upgrading to iOS7
On February 21st, Apple released a security patch for iOS that fixes a major flaw in iOS 6 and iOS 7. Only users of the iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 4th generation were allowed access to a version that kept them on iOS 6, forcing thousands of users at Stanford to finally make the upgrade from iOS 6 to iOS 7.
This Tech Briefing will discuss why this patch is so critical and will give you some tips and tricks for navigating iOS 7 including how to change settings to make iOS 7 look and feel a little more like iOS 6, new features you may love, and some tricks to optimize your iPhone and iPad experience.
Join Ammy Woodbury for this free presentation to help you become more comfortable with iOS 7.
Note: The Information Security Office recommends upgrading to iOS 7.0.6 immediately. Please back up your iOS device prior to upgrading, either via iTunes or iCloud. Then go to Settings>General>Software Update to upgrade your operating system.
