Install and Setup LinkedIn for the iPhone 6
Edited by Grimm, Zack, Eng
You are watching VisiHow! Today, we're going to show you how to install, setup and get started with LinkedIn on your iPhone 6.
To begin, we'll give your Lock button a single press.
This will open you up to the lock screen of your iPhone.
You can swipe across, or if you're like me and have a fingerprint set up, you just put your fingerprint on the Home button which is this little round button here.
Now, what you're looking for is the App Store icon.
It's a blue square with a white circle and a white letter A, which is made up of an architect's compass and a ruler.
We're going to give that a single press.
This is going to open up the App Store for us.
Specifically, we are looking for LinkedIn.
To do that, we're going to give a quick tap down here on the search bar. One tap on the search bar is going to open up the search window.
Press tap on the search button.
Now we can search for "LinkedIn." When you begin typing, we can see that LinkedIn is the second most popular search with the letter L.
Let's tap on LinkedIn.
This will open up the LinkedIn application.
Now we can tap LinkedIn to take us to the full application window, where we can read reviews, get additional information and details about it, and of course install the application.
Your phone will have the option to Get here, which you will tap and it will change to Install.
Tapping Install will prompt you to enter your password.
Once you've entered your password, you will be able to install the application.
If you've installed it on an older device or another iPhone, you will have a cloud icon here. All you'll need to do is simply click and download the previously downloaded version of the application. It will of course update to the newest version, but there will be that record of what you previously had.
Once you've downloaded the application, we are ready to start.
To start, we simply tap Open.
When you open it, you'll be taken directly to LinkedIn.
You'll receive a note that you can "Make the most of your professional life." A quick swipe we'll give us another wonderful uplifting message, letting us know that we can build our own network. We can connect and find opportunity.
Swipe it again to the right, and it'll let us know that we can stay on top of our career.
We can read professional news, join groups and follow industry leaders.
Another swipe takes us over to let us know that we can also find our dream job or we can let it find us.
And last but not least, we can start a profile, letting everyone else know about us and that will let opportunities find us.
Or we can search for opportunities ourselves.
You can Join Now if you are not already a member, or if you are a member like me, you can simply tap Sign In.
When you sign in, it's going to ask for your email and password.
Once you've entered your information, simply tap on the Sign In button.
LinkedIn will ask you if it can send you notifications.
Sure LinkedIn, I'd love that! Tap OK.
LinkedIn is going to ask for permission to access your contacts.
I do not like LinkedIn to access my contacts, so I'm not going to allow it to access my contacts.
So if you are not connecting your contacts, you may skip this section by pressing the Skip button.
Here, you can connect with people you may already know.
I'm not going to, but you can simply by pressing these plus signs to add them.
It's now asking me if I'd like to join these groups with like-minded people.
Again, I'm going to skip.
Now we can get insights from the world's top minds.
You can click and tap on any of these to follow these people. The only catch is that in my personal opinion as a writer, I've discovered that many of the top minds of the world (at least those I've met) don't normally do their own writing. Also, they're certainly not regularly posting on LinkedIn. Usually, someone is paid to create content for them or to post here, so you're not actually connecting with them. Although you may be connecting with their beliefs if that is your interest or desire.
Let's go ahead and tap Skip to go to the next one.
If you like companies, you can also follow them.
For me, this is much more interesting because there may be something in the Australian Writers Center that I would like to follow and keep up with. And I can scroll down to find different things and groups that I might be more interested in than some of the previous groups or people.
Choose what you'd like, and then tap Done.
If you're not sure that you're done, here you can tap Let's Go Back.
Otherwise, tap I'm Done.
You'll see on your main page a list of things that are relative to you and the people you follow, jobs suggested for you if you're in the market for a job, and more.
Let's scroll back up to the top.
We have the opportunity to create a new post, to search posts or tap LinkedIn - which takes us to our little side menu.
Now we have a picture of us, groups that we follow, companies, connections, jobs, groups and a LinkedIn Pulse.
We can also add our own shortcuts by tapping the Add Shortcut icon.
We can go to the Settings, which I'm totally not going to do.
We can tap here to check the messages we have.
You can access them by tapping the little email icon at the top.
Here are your notifications.
You can access them by tapping the little flag at the top.
At the bottom under Settings, you can change your settings.
You can try premium, you can add connections, download connections, change or set up push notifications, and see information about your version of the application.
You also have the ability to Sign Out, should you choose to sign out.
When you're finished looking at it, just tap the LinkedIn button, which takes you back here to your side menu.
Then you tap the Home button, which will take you home.
If you've tapped the LinkedIn button and gone anywhere else such as Settings, you simply tap the blue LinkedIn button.
That always takes you back to your main selection menu.
And from your main selection menu, you tap Home.
And Home will always takes you back to that main window from when you logged in.
You can scroll or pull down as I did to update your feed and see what other information is available there.
When you're done, let's press your phone's Home button which is the black button at the bottom of your phone.
That takes us back to the home screen.
Now give the Home button a double press.
We will then close the LinkedIn application and the App Store.
And we will tap one more time to go back to our home screen.
This puts us back in control of our phone and we can do whatever it is that we may like to do with our phone.
