Gadgets, apps and plenty of other shiny things you probably don’t need– Cellular Chloe is here to share the latest and greatest wireless wonders!
There’s always some stumbling blocks when it comes to new technology, and Cellular Chloe is here to share some tips on troubleshooting iOS7, the new upgrade that iPhones got, but it’s also on iPads, iMacs and more, so Mac users check this out.
Here’s some of the iOS7 issues, and how to combat them:
1. Huge Battery Drain
There’s a few things you can do to deal with this– a few features built into new Apple products are app updates, which can drain the battery. You can shut them off under Settings, under General to shut them off and save some juice. Airdrop– which is the new feature allowing you to share with other Mac users– is also something that can be shut off, as is App refreshment, which will automatically update the apps. There are some apps that update constantly, which will drain your battery.
3D Effect is a new feature on the home screen, which gives a 3D look, that might look nice but drains the power like crazy. You can shut this off in Settings – General – Accessibility and then Motion.
3. Phones Won’t Restart
If this happens with an iOS device, hold down the Sleep/ Wake button and the Home button for 10 seconds. This will perform a soft reset which typically works.
There’s a lot of other design problems with iOS7– the fonts can be light and hard to see, the battery charge indicator isn’t very noticeable– and you will have to deal with some of these. But if you have the phone locking up or having troubles with the speakers, Bluetooth of Wifi, all you really need to do are back up your phone on the computer and to a factory reset. You can find more details on how to do that on Cellular Chloe’s blog.
