How to zip and unzip in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13

Zip and unzip files in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 on your iPhone or iPad!

Until now, you needed to use third party apps or the Shortcuts app in order to zip and unzip files. Now in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, there is a compress and uncompress function built right in to the Files app, allowing you to zip and then unzip single or multiple files quickly and easily.

If you are on a device that does not support iOS 13, check out this video which shows how to do this in iOS 11 and iOS 12 – https://youtu.be/Bep2iVWSvGM

How to mix guitars in GarageBand iOS (iPhone/iPad)

Mixing in GarageBand iPhone and GarageBand iPad can be a little daunting, but it is actually quite a simple process.

In this video, I show you some of the tips and methods I use to mix a song in GarageBand iOS, in this case the electric guitars, acoustic guitars and bass guitar.

My method for mixing a song involved getting a good static mix early in the process, which includes balancing volume and gain levels, adjusting panning (the left/right stereo balance of the mix), adding compression where needed and making EQ (equalization) moves to help balance the overall mix.

NEW Download Manager for Safari in iOS 13

The new Safari download manager in iOS 13 allows you to download almost any file from any website including WAV and MP3 files for your music projects.

Previous versions of iOS have not had any file or download management built in, meaning you needed third party apps to download loops, samples and other files. Now, with iOS 13’s integrated download manager in Safari, you can download files quickly and easily directly to the Files app, and even copy and paste them directly from the download manager.

In this video, I show you some practical ways to use the download manager by downloading and using loops in a Garageband iOS project on my iPhone.
