Ohio State fans had the best response to Apple's iOS 11 glitch

TwitterFacebook

Ohio State crushed Michigan State yesterday—and they also crushed Apple. 

Ohio State fans perfectly executed a timely prank directed at the iPhone maker. During an O-H-I-O chant, when they would usually represent the “I,” fans instead held up signs that read “A[?].” 

Yep, they replaced the “I” with the nonsense “A[?]”—just as Apple did with an autocorrect suggestion for iOS 11 users this week. 

Watch the prank below:

Apple iOS 11 update has reached 52% of devices, roll-out slower than before

Apple has already rolled out iOS 11 to 52% of devices, while 38% remain on iOS 10, and 10% still run on earlier versions, according to information that Apple itself revealed regarding App Store development.
This is marks a slowdown in the update pace for iOS. Last year, Apple’s roll-out of iOS 10 went as follows:
60% of devices as of end October, 201676% of devices in early January, 201787% of devices in August, 2017
Overall, iOS 11 has been a bumpy ride, especially for owners of older devices. …

How to clear all notifications on iOS 11 (iPhone 8 tutorial)

Dealing with notifications on iOS has traditionally been one of the worst parts of having an iPhone: notifications are just not as versatile and well-segmented as on Android, and even simple things like clearing all notifications might seem impossible when you see no one-swipe shortcuts or single keys to do it.
Fortunately for those who get bombarded with notifications on a daily basis, there is a relatively easy way to clear notifications on iOS 11, but it’s not immediately obvious and does not work for the most recent notifications. What …

iOS 11 update has slowed down older iPhones (Poll Results)

The Apple iOS 11 software update was one of the biggest changes to the system, bringing a lot of new functionality and a brand new Control Center to iPhones, but initial reports by many suggest one thing: it has made older iPhones (iPhone 7 and earlier) stutter and run very slowly.
To double-check whether this is indeed true for the majority of users, we asked you, our readers, to share your impressions with your iPhones after the iOS 11 update and the results of the poll are in: the overwhelming majority of users of older iPhones do notice …

Did the iOS 11 update slow down your iPhone?

Apple released iOS 11 more than a month ago, plenty of time to get some user feedback and push any emergency patches that could compromise the performance of the system.
But we keep on seeing and hearing reports about extremely stuttery performance of older iPhones running iOS 11. Even last year’s iPhone 7 is reported to suffer from some bad slowdowns, something that usually Android phones have suffered from after rushed updates.
So… what is your experience with iOS 11 for iPhones from the iPhone 7, 7 Plus and earlier? …

With iOS 11, you can shut down your Apple iPhone or Apple iPad without using the power button


So let’s say that for some reason you cannot use any buttons to turn off your Apple iPhone or Apple iPad. For the purposes of this story, assume that the power button (sleep/wake) is not working. As a result, pressing the power button and the home button is also not resetting your device. Since the Apple iPhone 7 doesn’t have a mechanical home button, a change was made. To reset the phone, users have to press the power button for 3 seconds, and press volume down while still pressing the power button. But again, we are assuming that this method is not working.

Is there a way to turn off …

iOS 11 is already on more devices than iOS 10; Android 8 Oreo is still exclusive to the chosen few

It has been three weeks since iOS 11 finally launched officially and was available to users worldwide. The new operating system brought about tons of changes — like the new control center, screen recording, a new notification dropdown, among others — and came with its own fair share of bugs, which Apple has been hard at work ironing out, as we are now up to patch 11.0.3.

Since Apple is a company that develops its own hardware and software, it’s also able to maximize the amount of supported devices and minimize the distribution times for updates. iOS 11 is available …

38.5% of iOS devices are running iOS 11; Apple executives testing Apple Pay Cash?

Apple launched iOS 11 on September 19th. 24 hours after being released, iOS 11 was running on 10% of iOS devices. After one week, the figure was up to 25.28%. Now, two weeks after the launch, iOS 11 is installed on 38.5% of iPhone and iPad units. As high a figure as that is, last year saw 48.16% of iPhone and iPod models updated to iOS 10 after the same two week time period. So why is the adoption rate for iOS 11 down from last year’s iOS 10? There is speculation that iOS users are waiting for certain features like Apple Pay Cash to be included in a future version of iOS 11 (more on this later) …

How to activate Smart Invert in iOS 11

TwitterFacebook

The new “Smart Invert” feature in iOS 11 is a dark mode, but smarter. 

For a while, Apple has been trying features to ease the nighttime burden on our eyes when they’re staring at screens, with greyscale mode in iOS 8 and Night Shift in iOS 9. Smart Invert, iOS 11’s go at eye relief, inverts some colors, but leaves images, videos, and some apps untouched, aiming to dampen your screen’s glow without leading to the really weird image contortions that we saw with previous iterations of the feature.
