An iOS app can be programmed to support any one, more or all of the following orientation modes: Portrait Upside Down Landscape Left Landscape Right If talking about the portrait mode(s), while the apps targeting iPhone are generally configured to only support Portrait mode (front camera at the top), the ones for iPad support both Portrait and Upside Down (...

I just encountered this issue and I’m on ios 12.2. Sprint is my carrier. I had tried all of the solutions above before finding this page. None of them work. I spent a few hours chatting with both sprint tech support and sprint worldwide support (via a WiFi connection). After giving up trying to find a resolution to the sms issue, they informed me that my ...

Try it & see. Probably nothing will happen unless they have a partnership agreement with your own network - which usually applies more to roaming, abroad & would automatically switch if you just left your Network set to Automatic. If you have no contract with the other network, they will not feel obliged to connect you.

One aspect missing from your question: there is no iPhone? If the plan is completely replace an iPhone with an iPad, jksoegaard is spot on. If the idea is to supplement an iPhone with the iPad, then, with the same Apple ID in the iCloud & FaceTime settings you can have the iPad act as a secondary device. This option does not require cellular on the ...

Yes, it is theoretically possible. For example, the first iPad Air in the cellular version has the same baseband modem IC chip that the iPhone 5 has. However please note that it is not possible for a third party app to in any way "activate" or "reconfigure" the voice capabilities through that chip. Only Apple could, theoretically, add cellular voice ...

That's the "handoff" feature. You can turn it off at: Settings > General > Handoff. When you turn it off, that device can't send or receive handoffs. A little bit more info. You could also use a different iCloud account on your phone/iPad if you wanted handoff to work between a Mac and one device but not both iOS devices, but more than one iCloud is ...

I had the same issue with 2 iPhones. It appeared that iOS 12 is saving power by disabling Hotspot broadcast then the signal disappears afterwards. To fix this Go to iPhone setting -> 'Battery health' and disable the battery saving mode. You find a small link under 'Peak Performance Capability', the option once disabled disappears and cannot be enabled again....

I had to work this exact same thing out today. I had multiple distribution certificates that had the same name and needed to figure out which apps were using which certificates. Apple really should make it more obvious, but once you know where to look, it's pretty easy to work it out. A bit convoluted, admittedly... The following instructions require you to ...

Looks like description of element “Get frames from image” is inaccurate in stating that it handles burst images. When I get different element which loads only latest burst the shortcut works properly with any setting in GIF conversion element.

Nothing is going to happen. It won't take the IPSW file and give an error, something like: The iPhone "name" could not be restored You should just get the iPhone 6s IPSW file. Another note: You can't get iOS 6 on an iPhone 6s. The lowest version is iOS 9 for iPhone 6s.

I bet much of your "system storage" is actually chats, photos and videos from social media apps such as WhatsApp. They have been incorrectly recognized as system files. I learned this the hard way. My iphone indicated that all my apps and photos only took up less than 1GB but the system file was more than 13GB! I tried deleting WhatsApp and it did free ...

https://www.bewebsmart.com/ipod-ipad-iphone/how-to-restrict-apps-by-rating/ If Parental Control restricts a certain age criteria, yes it can be a filter. There are filters like 9+, 13+ etc. If all apps are allowed by the admin, no warning will be seen on the basis of age restriction. It will be just metric to judge content of the app.

No, it cannot be configured to be more reliable. In practical terms, you'll need to ensure that the devices are within range of WiFi and Bluetooth. Besides that, there's not more that can be done. As you have indicated in comments that you do not want suggestions for alternative solutions, I'll refrain from that.

I know of two ways (I use iPhone 6s plus): Once you are in the locked screen you may press the volume button in intervals of few seconds as long as you want the screen to remain on. You may alternatively slide to get your widget screen (that is on the left, right side is camera). You need to remove all items from the widget first. This will not stop the ...

Usually carriers distinguish minutes: for voice calls using the standard phone app, to either other phones or landlines (which can be confusing since FaceTime calls and audio use data and not voice minutes) sms (which can be confusing since the the message app uses data for iMessage and SMS for MMS and SMS) data: for all other internet traffic generated by ...

Mobile carriers provide two basic services: mobile voice service and data transmission. Mobile voice service is provided by a wireless connection to the carriers towers, and supported by the Mobile Switched Network on the carrier side, that connects to the Public Switched Telephone Network (ie. telephone service). SMS is part of this voice standard, and ...

Wi-Fi: The owner of Wi-Fi has to pay. Just to be sure, turn off Data. Cellular/ Mobile Data on: It counts against the allocated bandwidth or simply provided data in a pack. Like 1 GB for some money etc. Minutes are counted when the phones behave as internet-less devices and this is paid separately. A simple analogy would be to see the icons in the top bar....

According to Apple: If you AirDrop content to yourself, like share a photo from your iPhone to your Mac, you won't see an option to Accept or Decline. The content is automatically sent to that device. Just make sure that both devices are signed in with the same Apple ID. AirDrop is working as designed. I don't think you need to worry about someone ...

AFAIR there never was an official way to access data on an iPhone/iPad from macOS through Finder. It may be possible with a jailbroken device, but that's for somebody else to provide an answer on that. There are various other ways to transfer data between iOS and macOS though: use iCloud drive on both and store documents there AirDrop (which, if it works, ...

In the past I was able to use iOS devices as USB drives. You appear to be mistaken. This has never been possible without third-party software and/or jailbreaking. It was possible to use older iPods in "disk mode" as storage devices. However, this feature was never available for the iPod Touch, nor for any version of the iPhone. Some iOS applications ...

In VMware you have to connect the iPhone as a USB device to the guest virtual machine. This is usually done from the VMware menu item VM => Removable Devices, where you can select your iPhone. The actual naming of the menu depends on which version of VMware you're using (i.e. VMware Workstation on Windows, VMware Fusion on macOS, or whatever).

Yes you can. First of all download Firefox browser for iOS. Then navigate to youtube.com and play some video.

No. Apple includes find my phone and friends which lets the owner of the device set up geo fences with notification when those devices a device has permission to track cross a geofence.

From experience and I hope design, Wi-Fi is prioritised above cellular when it comes to connection. Only Wi-Fi assist can be used to use cellular despite Wi-Fi. Also, battery discharge rate drops when on Wi-Fi even when cellular is ON, I believe it is not being used. I cannot provide references. Now since dash cam is using Wi-Fi to stream video, not for ...

If you have ran a backup using iCloud while on iOS 13, and you don't have iTunes, there is unfortunately nothing you can do. If you have iTunes, you could restore from an old backup if you have one, or you can set up as a brand new phone on iOS 12.3 if you download the .ipsw file for your phone model and correct iOS.

The problem is that Safari on iOS does not support Encrypted Media Extension (a.k.a. DRM), so there is no way for Spotify to play the files without breaching license agreements. Check: https://caniuse.com/#feat=eme

You can’t type the name of contact on the dial pad, only a number. Unlike some other mobile OSs, iPhone (iOS) doesn't provide such feature. This is what you can do instead to achieve similar result.
