Ask iLounge: Non-Bluetooth Lightning dock speakers


Q: I’m looking for some non-Bluetooth speakers with a Lightning Dock for charging my iPhone. It seems everybody is going with Bluetooth these days, but I really have no interest in paying extra for Bluetooth, and I actually want speakers I can use at my workplace where wireless equipment isn’t permitted—I actually have to keep my iPhone in Airplane Mode when I’m at my desk. Is there anything still out there that doesn’t…

Ask iLounge: Receiving FaceTime calls on multiple devices

If you have two or more devices configured with the same Apple ID…

Q: I have an iPhone 5 and just purchased an iPad Air with Wi-Fi only. I have an adapter that can go from my iPhone to the iPad. Will I be able to access my Internet from my iPhone to the iPad away from my house by tethering? I don’t want to purchase the $20 tethering from AT&T. – Lupe A: From a technical point of view, you can definitely tether your iPad to your iPhone for Internet access.

Ask iLounge: Using an iPhone with an external Bluetooth adapter

Q: If I were to connect a Micro USB adapter to my iPhone 4, and then insert a Bluetooth 4.0 adapter into the Micro USB adapter, do you think it would be able to work with Bluetooth 4.0 devices? – Scott A: Unfortunately, this wouldn’t work as iOS doesn’t include the necessary drivers to access third-party Bluetooth adapters via the Dock Connector port using the normal Bluetooth protocols. An individual third-party app could theoretically…

Ask iLounge: Migrating from shared to personal iPads


Q: My wife and I currently share an iPad 2, but with the new iPads coming out this month, we’re thinking of buying separate iPads for each of us. We might get an iPad Air today and an iPad mini later this month, but I’m curious as to how easy it is to separate our data later when we both have our own personal iPads. – Phil A: Although Apple doesn’t offer an actual migration path for moving only specific apps and data between iPads,…
