how to connect an iPhone to a Keyboard

Here is a brief tutorial on how to connect a keyboard to your iPhone.  This is a great time saving idea if you need to type in large amounts of text into an email or iMessage, and you’re tired of tapping away on your iPhone screen.  Your iPhone must be updated to iOS 4.0 to be able to interface with a Bluetooth keyboard.  Don’t forget, a wireless keyboard will work from approximately 30 feet away from your iPhone.

How to Connect a Keyboard to Your iPhone

1) Turn your iPhone on and make sure that Bluetooth is enabled.  This is done by going  Settings > General > Bluetooth > On.  This may seem like a no-brainer but many people turn off Bluetooth to extend the life of their battery.

2) You’ll see a “Now Discoverable” notice pop up on your iPhone’s screen with a list of paired Bluetooth devices.  These are all the devices that your iPhone knows how to connect too.

75 Things Every University of Florida Freshman Should Know

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

It’s the start of a new school year, and the University of Florida class of 2016 is just starting to learn the ropes and settle in to the 4 years that will shape their lives. We talked to a few students, Alumni, and Faculty to come up with this list of 75 things that every University of Florida freshman should know.

Would you add anything to the list? Let us know in the comment section!

  1. Make friends in your major.
  2. Go to class – every class!
  3. Make a friend in every class, to study with, do group projects with, and get notes from if you’re absent.
  4. Spend some time to get to know the Later Gator bus route.
  5. Know who Steve Spurrier is, aka the Ol’ Ball Coach. Even though he’s South Carolina’s coach now, we still love him.
  6. Know who Urban Meyer is. He’s the Ohio State coach now…we’re still dealing with feelings of love and betrayal about that.
  7. Know who Ron Zook is. And why we’re so glad he’s gone.
  8. Find a few good places to nap in between classes…you’ll probably need it at some point. Some ideas: The stadium bleachers, the booths in Pugh Hall, Reitz Union Lawn…
  9. Go to at least one SEC home football game your freshman year, even if you have to sell your soul.
  10. The Hare Krishna’s are those people in Plaza of Americas playing music in the circle. They serve vegetarian/vegan lunch during the week for 4 bucks too.
  11. Know the three Heisman winners from UF: Steve Spurrier, Danny Wuerffel, Tim Tebow.
  12. After the 3rd quarter of every football game, everyone puts their arms around each other and sings “We Are The Boys of Old Florida.”
