Getting Started Using iPad with USB-C

Now that Apple's long-awaited switch to USB-C on iPhone has been implemented, we've been able to implement a better way to use USB-C model iPads with Picture Keeper Connect as well. This has simplified the process and significantly increased the backup speed. Below, we'll go over the steps to set up the app and get started using your Picture Keeper Connect with your iPad. First, make sure iPadOS is up to date, and if you haven't already, download the PK Connect app PKC App.jpg from the App Store and open it.

  1. Tap Create Account if this is your first time using Picture Keeper, otherwise tap Sign In
