The 2021 iPad Pro comes with a 12MP Ultra-Wide camera lens with a 122‑degree field of view. With that, Apple has announced the Center Stage feature that uses the Ultra-Wide camera and machine learning to change the way you engage in video calls. As you move around, it automatically utilizes an ultra-wide view to keep you centered in the frame. When others join in or leave the call, the view expands or zooms in. The good news is, Center Stage isn’t limited to FaceTime only. It works with other video conferencing apps such as WhatsApp, Skype, Google Meet, and Zoom for an even more engaging experience.
Many people are going to use the M1 iPad Pro with an external monitor. The USB-C/Thunderbolt port on the M1 iPad can be used to mirror your iPad Pro’s display or use as a secondary display in selected apps. The GPU inside the 2021 iPad Pro is powerful enough to support up to 6K resolution displays.
Some emails don’t require an immediate response, but they do need to be handled before the time you have scheduled to review items in your to-do folder. These items can still be moved to your to-do folder so they’re not clogging your inbox, but you’ll want to make sure that you have a reminder to take care of them before a deadline. Create a reminder by adding these emails to Outlook’s task list:
The 2021 iPad Pro M1 is capable enough to run graphic-intensive games with ease. For a better experience, you can connect your existing PS5 or Xbox controller to iPad Pro via Bluetooth and enjoy a flawless gaming experience.
Taking time off is wonderful until the moment you open your email after returning to work. If you work in an email-heavy company, you may have received hundreds of emails while you were out of the office, and now you’re faced with the difficult task of sorting through each one. With Outlook’s clean-up function (introduced in Outlook 2010), you can drastically reduce the number of emails you have to deal with in just a few clicks—whether you're coming back from vacation or you just have too many emails piled up. The clean-up function removes all email replies that are duplicated in a later thread, allowing you to read a single thread instead of dozens of individual emails. To clean up your inbox quickly:
Unfortunately, not all emails in the workplace come with an unsubscribe link. Day after day, emails arrive in your inbox that are just a distraction. Some common examples include:
If you spend a lot of time typing the same answers to questions you get repeatedly, create Quick Parts to insert that text into email replies in just a few clicks. No need to keep typing the same thing over and over again or having to find an old response to copy and paste. When you’ve finished typing a response that you expect to need to send again, follow the steps below to save the text as a Quick Part:
The latest iPad Pro comes with 5G capabilities. If you live in those areas where 5G is available, it makes sense to use 5G for faster download speeds. Others should switch from 5G to 4G connectivity from the Settings app to save battery life on the device.
If you’ve had success with the previous Outlook tips and are interested in getting into more advanced email management, it’s time to take a look at Quick Steps. Quick Steps allow you to automatically perform long strings of actions based on a trigger. Say at the end of the month you receive a series of invoices from vendors or contractors. Your normal process is to review the invoices, forward the invoices to your accountant, and create a reminder to follow up with the accountant a week later to make sure the invoices were paid. Quick Steps can take care of the last two steps for you with fewer clicks than if you performed the tasks manually:
First, if you’ve never done a longer fast before, you should start with a shorter 16 hour fast. This way, you can get an understanding of how your body might respond to fasting. There are a number of interesting feelings I experienced when I fasted for the first time, and the first time I did it, it definitely was stressful and nerve wracking. But after doing it a few times, I now know how to cope with those thoughts and feelings. Starting slow with a 16 hour fast will allow you to experience some of the feelings involved with fasting and will help when you give the full 24 hours a go.
