Best iPhone stands for FaceTime on Apple TV

It's really easy to use FaceTime on your Apple TV, which allows you to chat face-to-face with friends and loved ones on the biggest screen in the house. All you need is an iPhone (or iPad) and an Apple TV 4K (2nd gen) or later, running on the latest software. You're also going to want some sort of iPhone stand, so you can remain hands-free while chatting. More specifically you're going to want a stand that holds your iPhone steady, at a proper angle for making video calls, and fortunately we happen to know of a few good ones. Here are the best iPhone stands for FaceTime on Apple TV.

Later this year, when Apple launches the next major updates for iOS and macOS, a new feature will come along for the ride called Continuity Camera. This will allow folks to use their iPhone as their computer's web cam, either wirelessly or wired. Users will also need an accessory to attach their smartphone to their computer, but that won't launch until later this year, too. But one enterprising individual has decided that waiting isn't all that fun.

How to mark up documents on your Mac with iPhone or iPad using your Apple Pencil or finger

How to use your iPhone or iPad to sketch in Mac documents

You can easily draw or sketch with your finger and Apple Pencil on your iPhone or iPad. But since your MacBook or Mac desktop lacks a touchscreen, it isn't possible to sketch directly on them.

Thankfully, the Continuity feature lets you use your iPhone or iPad as a wireless drawing board for your Mac. After that, anything you sketch there will appear on your Mac. This tutorial will walk you through all the steps to do that.

How to add Continuity features to older Macs

Most of our readers will be familiar by now with Apple's Continuity suite, a slew of features which were introduced with iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. These features include Instant Hotspot, a new AirDrop, SMS/Phone calls from Mac, and Handoff. With macOS Sierra and iOS 10, they added Auto Unlock and Universal Clipboard to the group.

The catch is of course that making use of these features requires certain hardware. Therefore, Macs from before about 2010/11 appear not to support some or all of the new functionality. However, it turns out there is a way to enable Continuity on your older hardware. In this guide we'll go through how to do it.
