Using Apple’s FaceTime to stay in touch, 3 quick steps!
In these difficult times of lockdown due to Covid-19, it’s important to stay in touch to reduce the isolation that you may be feeling, and just to break the day up a bit.
We know that many of our customers order our products via Apple devices, but are often not as confident on how to use video chat apps, like the inbuilt FaceTime app on their Apple phones or tablets.
Technology and computers can be frightening and especially when trying something new, but the upside is that being able to actually see, hear and interact visually with friends and family members can be much more socially fulfilling than simply being on a phone call.
