It doesn’t mat­ter what Mac or iOS de­vice you use, you need the in­ter­net for them, and your home net­work is where you’ll spend the most time con­nect­ing your de­vices to it. Most broad­band con­nec­tions and routers are free from bad re­cep­tion these days, but with more and more de­vices be­ing con­nected in your home the strain on your net­work has never been greater, par­tic­u­larly with smart home gad­gets like mul­ti­room speak­ers, ther­mostats and

IP cam­eras. That’s why we’ve un­cov­ered some great ways to max­imise your home Wi-Fi net­work in this is­sue, so that all your Macs, iPhones, iPads and in­ter­net-con­nected ac­ces­sories per­form to their best at all times of the day.

Core to your on­line ac­tiv­ity is iCloud, and this month we’ve dived back into the Photos app to show you how to get more from it in El Cap­i­tan and how it all re­lates to iCloud Photo

Li­brary – some­thing we hear a lot about from read­ers. The cloud is one as­pect of your stor­age, but your Mac’s lo­cal drives are the main home for your files. In this month’s project we show you how to main­tain all your stor­age de­vices so that you can min­imise the threat of data dis­as­ters in the fu­ture. Turn to page 62 to get started. Fi­nally, we saw the re­lease of the smaller iPhone and new

9.7-inch iPad Pro in late March. Get the low-down on page 14, and look out for full re­views of them next time.
