The iPad World Clock tutorial has been updated to cover iOS 10.
When I first got my iPad, one of the features or apps that I really missed when comparing it with my iPhone was the clock and the possibility to set alarms. Think about it. iPad is an ideal travel companion. Wouldn’t it make sense to have a clock with time for multiple cities and alarms?
For some strange reason, the iPad World Clock was not included way back on iOS 5 although it was available for the iPhone and iPod touch at that point.
The good news is that the iPad World Clock app has been included and integrated with iOS since version 6 and of course is present on iOS 10 as well. Today I’ll be discussing about the iPad World Clock and its functionality.
Opening iPad World Clock
From the home screen, click on the Clock icon.
The iPad World App starts and displays the time for some of the major cities (New York, Paris, Beijing and Tokyo). Cupertino is listed as well which is the city where Apple is based.
On the bottom of the screen you’ll find a menu with 5 icons:
- World Clock
Adding a city to iPad World Clock
You can add a clock for a city (based on a list) by tapping on the plus icon that is located on the top right corner of the screen.
You can scroll down the list or start typing the name of your city and select it from the list. In this example, I’m adding Toronto.
Each city that gets added is also displayed on the iPad World Clock Map on top of the screen. You can add more than 6 cities. You are not limited to what fits on the screen. You can see all cities by scrolling up and down.
Deleting a city from iPad World Clock
Tap on the Edit button that’s located on the top left corner.
Tap on the red circle next to the city you want to delete.
The clock for that city gets deleted.
Moving Clocks around
You can change the order or layout of the clocks on the screen. To do this, tap and hold a clock and then move it to the position where you would like it to be.
Swipe up and down to see other city clocks.
Temperature on iPad World Clock
Previous versions of the iPad World Clock used to display the temperature of each city that was added to the screen while connected to the Internet. I noticed that on iOS 10 this functionality is not available anymore. Do not despair, as there are plenty of weather Apps that can be downloaded for iPad.
On the next post I’ll be discussing about alarms, stopwatch and timer.
What do you think about the new Clock app for iPad ?
