The more time goes by the more ridiculous it feels to call smart mobile devices “phones.” It’s a disservice. Phones are just for calling people. Android and iOS devices are some of the most powerful supercomputers on the planet. You carry them around with you to perform so many different vital tasks throughout your day, which sometimes includes calling people.

Devices like the iPhone X can do so many different things that it’s tough to even remember them all. We’re not complaining. When a phone costs a thousand dollars it better do a lot. But you know features are hard to keep track of when the settings app needs its own search engine. So to help jog your memory, or illuminate you about your new purchase, here are some useful features you didn’t know your iPhone even had.

Battery Throttling

Apple recently took some heat for secretly decreasing iPhone performance as the quality of its battery degraded over time. But after the outcry (and price slash for battery replacements) you can now choose whether or not to activate this battery throttling “Performance Management” feature. Just go to Settings, Battery, and the Battery Health beta.

Screen Recorder

Everyone knows you can take a quick snapshot of your phone screen by pressing the Home and Power buttons at once. But now you can record whole videos of what’s happening on your screen. Under Control Center go to Customize Controls and enable Screen Recording. The recording button will now appear under Control Center.

Squeezed Keyboard

Phones are way bigger now. Everyone but me seems to like this. But a bigger screen means a bigger keyboard, and potentially a keyboard too big for your thumbs to comfortably navigate. The simple solution would be just get a smaller phone, but you also have the option under keyboard settings to shift the keys to the left or right for easier one-handed typing.

Live Photos

For a while now Live Photos have been letting us live our Harry Potter dreams by turning snapshots into brief videos that come to life when we press on them. If you never want the illusion to stop, you can also loop a Live Photo, kind of like an Instagram Boomerang. Just swipe up on the photo to see the new potential effects.

Face ID Alarm

Arguably the most attention-grabbing aspect of the iPhone X is its ability to deeply recognize your face using Face ID. Some folks use this for security reasons, others use it to turn themselves into animoji puppets. But the most mean muggingest use of Face ID to me is just staring at your phone in the morning to shut up the alarm.

Black Wallpaper

This is more of a hack than a feature, but because of the way the OLED screen works on newer iPhones, “black” images essentially allow that part of the screen to turn off. So if you use dark images as wallpaper and night themes in apps, you can potentially save a lot of battery power during everyday use.

Do Not Disturb in Car

Hey! Don’t text and drive! You could get somebody hurt or worse! But if you need extra motivation, go to Control and Customize Controls to enable “Do Not Disturb While Driving.” As the name implies, thanks to CarPlay your phone won’t even attempt to distract you while on the road.

Virtual Home Button

In order to accommodate its even bigger screen, the iPhone X has no physical home button. You navigate via intuitive touch gestures. But if you’re not ready to give up on a home button yet, or one of the other physical buttons is broken, you can add a virtual home button to your screen by going to Accessibility and then Accessibility Shortcut.

Files

Apple’s slavish commitment to making its computers seem like magic instead of computers meant that for years the way iOS handled files was weirdly obfuscated. No more. The new Files app easily shows you content you’ve saved to your phone across apps and even across other devices using iCloud.

Drag and Drop

The more powerful iPhones become they more they just start letting you use them like honest-to-Grodd computers. You’ve been able to drag and drop files easily on computers for years. But on iPhone it’s almost revolutionary being able to move a link, text snippet, photo, or file from one app to another like it’s nothing.

The largest smartphone market in the world is China, but its growth is slowing. According to the head of Apple’s “new China” for the company should become India’s second largest smartphone market. However, it is rather a wish than a forecast based on actual data as to boast Apple in India nothing.

Доля Apple на втором по величине рынке смартфонов составляет всего 2%

During the first half of this year, Apple managed to sell in India about 1 million iPhone devices, and for the entire 2017 3.2 million, These figures correspond to 2% of the market.

Not surprisingly, Apple shake up the leadership of the Indian unit: in recent weeks your posts have left three key Manager. Among them the local leader for sales and distribution, head of commercial channels and also the sales Manager of the operators. This information was revealed to Bloomberg, the people, who requested anonymity, since we are talking about the internal Affairs of the company.

The problems of Apple in India are associated with high prices on the iPhone, which partly explains the high tariffs on imported electronics. As a result, consumers tend to be more affordable alternatives which are offered, in particular, Xiaomi and Samsung Electronics, which produce smartphones for the Indian enterprises.

As you know, Apple recently updated the MacBook Pro. Compared to their predecessors, computers got more powerful processors and solid state drivesand keys with reduced noise level (according to some sources, the noise reduction is a side effect, and the real reason for the update of the design lies in the other).

Из-за нехватки запчастей Apple пока не будет ремонтировать ноутбуки MacBook Pro 2018 по гарантии, но расстраиваться не стоит

According to the source, Apple does not yet have a sufficient number of spare parts for MacBook Pro sample 2018, so won’t be able to repair the laptop if the user will contact the service center. This situation will persist, at least until the end of September. However, upset is not necessary — the service centers is recommended in case of warranty to replace new. Of course, in this case, you will need data recovery from a backup, but a serious failure of the motherboard or the SSD also requires this, as SSD components are on the motherboard.

Verify that the “minor repair” is possible, starting from the end of the month, but the basic components will not be available for another couple of months.
