Hi I'm Chase Thompson-Baugh with Simply Mac, your local source for everything Apple. We're a Utah based Apple specialist with eight stores in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming and today we're going to show you some more quick tips on the iPad that I know you're just going to love. And now I'm going to show you how you can enable the developer mode on your iPad. So the developer mode on an iPad, this is actually something that we find in Safari. It's not something that we find by going to the Safari app, because you'll notice there's no real button that says developer anywhere. Well what we have to do is we have to go to the settings app. So if I tap on settings and tap on Safari, no developer here. We have to go into advanced. And other advanced we have the debug console, which is essentially developer mode. Now what this does is if I tap on Safari, we'll get this little bar that says debug consol, no errors. Now essentially this is really only helpful for web page developers. If they want to go to their website and see if any errors come up from the iPad. Now you'll notice most of these websites are just fine. National Geographic fine. CNN, fine. So most of the major websites are not going to have any kind of bugs with the iPad, but we actually do have two messages with this one that just got resolved. So again, this one is just fine. So you may not find any messages come across. Even if you do happen to find a message, typically they get resolved just by staying on the website. But if you find a message, it will give you an error code and tell you what specific element on the website is having some issues. So let's see if we can find one. Let's just go and do a Google search. And we'll just type in Apple. No errors on this page either. And that's pretty common. But if you do happen to come across one, it will tell you exactly what error there is and how you can resolve it on your end. Again I'm Chase Thompson-Baugh with Simply Mac, and I've shown you how to enable the developer mode in Safari on your iPad.
