Do I need a credit card to create an Apple ID?
Usually people think that you need a credit or payment card to register an Apple ID for use on the app store, but actually this is not always the case, and there is a method that you may follow to avoid having to use a credit or payment card if you do not have access to one.
When you register your new account and fill in the information including your email address, preferred Apple ID and name, there should be an option below the card payment list (the list which says Visa, American Express, and so on) which is simply labelled ‘none’. Select this option and you will then be able to proceed to registering your Apple ID. Note that you may want to add a payment option at a later date if you’d like to make purchases on the App store or on iTunes.
Does the Apple Watch have a camera?
While Apple Watch, and the new generation of Apple Watch, have been incredibly popular as one of the most innovative smart watches, the Apple Watch does not have a camera. There is another option though – an application called ‘camera remote’ allows you to connect your Apple Watch to your iPhone camera and control the camera remotely.
This is also useful as it incorporates a timer, so if you want to set up your iPhone and take a picture from afar, you can do that with the Apple Watch and camera remote app.
How do I charge my Apple Watch?
Charging the Apple Watch is a little bit different to charging a mobile phone. When you buy your watch you will receive a magnetic circle which attaches directly to the back of the watch, Using something called magsafe technology, there is no need to connect any external cables or plug anything into the watch in order to charge it. Just place the connector over the back of the Apple Watch and it should snap into place and begin charging.
If you believe your charger or device are malfunctioning then contact support
How can I check if my Apple product is covered under warranty?
Normally buying any item from Apple will include a warranty, although the period of warranty differs depending on the product. If you buy an iPhone, one of Apple’s most popular products, then the warranty is for one year and is covered at all Apple service centres around the world.
To find the nearest service centre which can help you, you may wish to get in contact with them by calling the Apple phone number listed at the top of this page.
Remember that if you bought your device second hand or refurbished, then it may already be out of the warranty period as the warranty only extends to when products are bought brand new from an established and licensed sales retailer.
I don’t know how to turn off my Apple TV, how do I do that?
If you’ve just purchased Apple TV you may be wondering how to turn off your device, as there is no clear power off button. Aside from unplugging Apple TV, you should hold down the play and pause button simultaneously for a minimum of 3 seconds, which should turn it off. In addition, you may also select Apple TV’s ‘sleep’ option, where it will sleep for a predetermined period of time and then turn back on afterwards.
If you’re having trouble using Apple TV or are having problems with your Apple hardware, then you may wish to get in touch with the Apple customer services department themselves either online or via telephone and find out the solution to your problem in more detail.
What do I do if my iPhone / iPad / Mac has a crashed app or is unresponsive?
Apps and games, or even videos can all ‘freeze’ on any number of electronic devices. This isn’t particularly common with their devices, but it does still happen from time to time.
To reset your device there are some simple steps that you may wish to follow. Firstly, you can double tap the home button on your device which should bring up a menu called the ‘app switcher’, and from here you can turn the app off. If this doesn’t work and your phone is truly frozen, then holding down the reset button, which on the iPhone is the power button plus home button for five seconds, will allow you to reset your hardware entirely.
If it is still frozen then you may wish to get in touch with support by calling the Apple customer service number above or attend an Apple service centre to seek further advice.
I have forgotten my Apple ID or I am locked out of my account, what can I do?
It’s frustrating when you lose your Apple ID, password, or end up being locked out of the account that you need to access information, apps, or other Apple services. This is a situation that happens fairly commonly and there are several steps you may wish to follow to remedy this problem.
Firstly if you’re using a later generation of iPhone or iPad, you should be able to use your fingerprint recognition to log into your iCloud or Apple ID account, which means that you do not need to remember your password or even your ID as this will be saved automatically.
If you have an earlier generation of hardware or are using a different product then you should be able to reset your information with the email address you initially provided by visiting the Apple website.
If you are still unable to do so then you may wish to contact Apple’s help centre by phone or via mail or using an online form. You can then have their support help you to reset your information so that you may start using the services associated with your Apple ID or iCloud account again immediately.

Following this, there should be a response when Siri says ‘What can I help you with?’. Then you may ask your question out loud, and the microphone will be animated on screen to demonstrate that the app is picking up your voice. You can also touch the microphone symbol again to rephrase your question or ask a further question. Once you’ve done this, the app will pause for a second while it searches for your results.
Does Siri work with headphones?
Yes, Siri works with both headphones and with Bluetooth headsets. If you’re using headphones with a microphone you can press the microphone button on your headset and then say ‘Hey Siri’ assuming you’ve got this feature enabled.
What does Siri do once I finish asking a question?
Siri will then turn the question into text on the screen, or possibly prompt you for more information.

Following this, Siri will complete the search, function, or question, and deliver the results on screen as well as saying them out loud.
Do I speak to Siri like a speak to a person?
Yes, you should be able to get Siri to work by addressing it in the same way that you’d address any person, speaking naturally and with your normal pronunciation. You can ask many questions, of all sorts of nature and it should be easy enough for Siri to return the correct answer.

Do I need to fill out settings before Siri will work?
No, Siri is designed by Apple to work as soon as you begin using your Apple device. However, if you continue to use Siri on a regular basis then it will learn to deliver feedback and results that are more tailored to your voice.

What apps can I use Siri with?
Siri is compatible with many iPhone and iPad apps, including Facetime, settings, calendars, messages, weather, Wikipedia, and many more. If you want to see if Siri is compatible with a specific app, then you may wish to try asking Siri a request with a function based on the app you want to use.

So for example, if you ask how to take the quickest drive to your friends house, Siri can use your address and your friends address to calculate the shortest route.
Siri will also be able to develop an ability to know who are important contacts, so for example,. If you ask to call your brother Siri may learn who your brother is.
I am blind, can I use Siri?
Yes, Apple builds in an accessibility app called VoiceOver which enables Siri to speak answers out loud, so you do not need to read them. You are able to use different responses from Siri and have them read out loud, meaning you can still use this application.

To wear it on the left hand, all you have to do is rotate the watch so that the crown is on the opposite side. When you connect the watch and the phone, you can simply select the orientation setting. This means that it’s suitable for right handed, left handed, and ambidextrous individuals who wish to use the Apple Watch.
Can the Apple Watch track my heart rate?
Yes, the Apple Watch has a number of different high-technology sensors. To track your heart rate, the Apple Watch uses light and infrared devices. This means that the Apple Watch can deliver a reasonably accurate picture of your pulse rate. The Apple Watch also has an accelerometer to detect speeds, and can use GPS information to pinpoint your location in the same way that smartphones do.
What fitness functions does the Apple Watch have?
The Apple Watch can not only monitor your heart rate before and after exercise, but it can also be used as a pedometer which monitors your steps, thus showing how active you’ve been throughout the day. This data can be used by itself, or in conjunction with other information for calorie counting, weight loss, general fitness, and more.
Apple Watch has two different settings related to this: the first of these is called ‘Activity’ which shows your general activity on a day-to-day basis, while ‘Workout’ is used for more in-depth analysis of your exercise regime. Some independent and third party fitness apps may also work on the Apple Watch, although they may not be as functional or effective as those designed and released by Apple.
How do I use the Apple Watch?
The Apple Watch benefits from having a touchscreen in the same way that the iPhone and other modern smartphones do. However, the crown of the watch, which is the small silver button on the side of the device, is also used for scrolling, much like the control wheel on an early iPod. This allows you to complete a number of navigational functions, like zooming in and out or skipping through a list.
The Apple Watch also has a button located just underneath the crown. This is used to access your contact list, and after doing so you will be able to send routine messages, make calls, or contact with the selected contact that you’ve chosen.
The digital crown is a useful innovation because when dealing with the smallness of the Apple Watch, it means that your finger won’t accidentally hit other parts of the screen.
One other important means of navigation is using the ‘swipe’ function, which has now been incorporated into both the Apple X and the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8+. Swiping up on the Apple Watch gives you an overview of all the key information related to your apps and activity.
How do I pay for things with an Apple Watch?
This smartwatch can be used to pay for items, much like the later models of the iPhone (from iPhone 6 onwards). To do so, firstly you must enable Apple Pay, and following that, you just need to ‘wave’ the watch over a payment terminal that is enabled to use wireless payment methods. This technology is called ‘Near Field Communication’ and means that the devices just have to be close to one another to work effectively.
What Apps can I use on Apple Watch?
There are many apps available for the Apple Watch, including most of those that you would expect to find on an iPhone. This includes Mail, Weather, Music, Photos, Passbook, Messages, and a number of others. That said, the Apple Watch cannot function as a camera.
It can act as a device that helps you use your camera, including setting a timer so that you can take shots of yourself from afar. The Apple Watch doesn’t have a camera of its own though.
How long does the Apple Watch battery last?
Apple state that this watch can be used for up to eighteen hours of use on a regular day. This means you could theoretically use an app for 45 minutes concurrently, check the time up to ninety times, access ninety notifications, and have a half-hour workout while playing music from the watch’s’ internal storage before it ran out of power.
As a basic watch, you can access a power-saving mode which offers up to seventy two hours of battery life. The Apple Watch is best charged every evening, similar to the manner in which you charge your phone.
Can I change the face of the watch?
Yes, Apple offers a range of different watch faces in different colors and styles, with unique graphics, services, and display data customised to fit every look and preference.
Does Apple Watch have Siri?
Yes, the Apple Watch comes equipped with a microphone and a small loudspeaker, meaning that you can speak to it and receive replies, like with Siri. You can also make calls and transfer calls to your iPhone.
Can I get the Apple Watch wet?
The Apple Watch is not waterproof in the way that some watches are, meaning that you may not want to swim with it in case it incurs water damage. However, the Apple Watch is water resistant, which means that you can expose it to small amounts of water, for instance, if it’s raining, without negative consequences.
It can also be worn while exercising and cleaning your hands under the tap, but you should take care not to put the entire Apple Watch underwater. The official water resistance rating of the Apple Watch is known as IPX7. This standard states that the watch can survive for up to half an hour when submerged in water at a depth of up to a metre. Longer than that may mean that the phone is damaged beyond repair.
What is AppleCare and AppleCare+?
This is an insurance service offered in many countries around the world, which is designed to protect your Apple product, including your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. When you purchase Apple Care you can simply take your product to an Apple Store and arrange for it to be fixed. Applecare can be purchase online.
Can I give my AppleCare plan so someone else?
AppleCare protection plans, and AppleCare+ plans may be transferable. This means that it is possible for you to sell, or to give away your product, and then transfer the protection plan too, although Apple may have additional terms and conditions to consider.
Do I have to complete registration for AppleCare?
AppleCare is normally registered automatically. This means that if you buy the protection plan at the same time you buy your device, you shouldn’t need to complete any additional registration process as it’ll be done in the store during purchase. You should receive a protection plan at that point.
