The Calendar app for iPhone and iPad provides a great way to keep track of all your appointments and events.

How to set your caller ID for FaceTime

FaceTime allows you set a caller ID. If you only have one iPhone phone number, or iPod touch, iPad, or Mac email address associated with FaceTime, that'll be your caller ID. If you have several different numbers and addresses associated with FaceTime, however, you can choose one of them to serve as your consistent, unified called ID. That way, no matter which number or address you're FaceTime calling from, the person receiving the call will always see the same contact, and easily know it's you. If you have multiple iOS and/or OS X devices, you can either set them all to the same caller ID, or to different ones -- for example, business and personal -- so you can receive calls from any number or address, but always send them from the same, specific number or address.

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.

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!
