One of the ways you can personalize your iPhone is by changing the background wallpaper of your home screen and/or your lock screen to display the wallpaper that you choose (such as a photo of your family, your favorite sports team logo, etc.).
This post explains what your iPhone’s home screen and lock screen are and how you can change the background wallpaper on one or both of them.
Over time, no matter the capacity of your iPhone, you will eventually need to free up space, and sometimes you’ll need to do so quickly. I’ll go over the best 3 ways to do so quickly and effectively.
“Auto-brightness” is a setting that is intended to save battery by automatically brightening or dimming your iPhone’s screen based on the ambient light where you are.
When the “auto-brightness” setting is turned on, if you are in a dark place then auto-brightness will automatically dim your iPhone’s screen (as you generally would not need your iPhone to be really bright in order to be able to read your iPhone in a dark place), and if you are in a bright place (like outside in sunlight) then auto-brightness will automatically brighten your iPhone’s screen so you are able to see the screen.
The “auto-brightness” setting is automatically turned on in iOS 11. However, if you are like me and prefer to have your screen brightness held constant all of the time, then “auto-brightness” can get pretty annoying. Luckily there is a way to turn it off, and here is how.
With iOS 8 comes a whole new way to use your apps. Some third party apps (apps made by people other than Apple) now work with your notifications center, which means, you can quickly access more content from a wide variety of apps just by swiping down from the top-most part of your screen.
Unless you’re flying a lot for whatever reasons, you may not be using Airplane mode on your iPhone that often. But did you know there are other reasons for its usefulness? This is especially important lately due to the FAA relaxing restrictions on the use of electronic devices while in flight. So let’s find out. Read More →
Has your iPhone 5 battery been suffering? Have you been charging your iPhone more frequently? Perhaps your device is among those that Apple will replace the battery, at no cost to you!
With the introduction of iOS 7 came lots of new features and changes. One change is the way in which you manually close an app.
The old way was to bring up that “quick app switching” bar at the bottom, put it in “jiggle” mode, and then carefully touch that little red circle to close the app. The new way still involves the “quick app switching” feature but now it looks different. Once you get to the quick app switching view, simply swipe up on the screenshot of the app you wish to close. I can walk you through it below.
You’ve seen the commercials for other smartphones where they bump phones to share files, right? Well, Apple’s version of this doesn’t require you to “bump” anything. It’s called AirDrop and I’ll show you how to use it.
Sharing files with someone is always possible with email, but AirDrop makes it even easier with email out of the picture. If you’re next to the person (or people) you want to share with, you can utilize AirDrop to securely share your document or photo.
