How to make a FaceTime call from your Mac

You can make FaceTime calls not only from your iPhone or iPad, but from your Mac too. This means you can use it with anyone else using an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac computer that also supports FaceTime. It also doesn't eat into your cellular data plan like FaceTime calls over cellular do, which makes it an even better option for when you're at home.

Here's how to get started.

How to turn off video while on a FaceTime call

How to make a FaceTime call from your iPad or iPod touch

Apple's free video calling service, FaceTime, is available on every iPad since the 2011 iPad 2, and iPod touch since the 2010 iPod touch 4. Because FaceTime requires an internet connection, on the iPod touch and non-cellular iPads, you need to be connected to Wi-Fi to make a call. On an iPad or iPad mini with cellular, you can FaceTime any time, from anywhere, you just need to keep an eye on your data limit, if any. Unlike the iPhone, FaceTime on the iPad, iPad mini, and iPod touch is a separate app. Tap it, and you're ready to call any other FaceTime user!

How to make a FaceTime call from your iPhone

The iPhone was the first Apple device to gain access to their free video calling service, FaceTime. Since 2010 and the iPhone 4, FaceTime has been integrated right into the built-in iOS Phone app. That means you can make, or switch to, a FaceTime call as easily as a regular call. What's more, because your iPhone is with you all the time, and because FaceTime now also works over cellular data as well as Wi-Fi, you can make a FaceTime call at any time, from anywhere. That makes it perfect for everything from keeping in touch with family while you're on the road, to getting a second opinion on that jacket while you're out shopping! (Just keep an eye on your data cap!)

This way, when you switch between lists you'll see them in the order you prefer instead.

How to create a list in Reminders for iPhone and iPad

While creating reminders in the default Reminders list on iPhone and iPad serves it's purpose, we've all got different tasks and things to remember on a regular basis.

How to delete reminders on iPhone and iPad

Once you've started creating reminders, you'll also start marking them as complete once you've finished with a task.
