iOS 11 Features For iPhone, iPad, iPod [Infographic]

If you and your family members own multiple Apple devices, and use them to share media such as photos and videos, it makes no sense for each member to have their own iCloud storage plan. Thankfully, iOS 11 makes it possible to have shared iCloud storage plans. Up to six members of a family can share a common iCloud storage plan between them. This can be done without having to incur any extra costs on a monthly basis. Along with this feature, a lot of other features are there. Please check the infographic for more detailed information.

iOS 7 : Inspired By Android And Windows Phone

Posted By: Poketors - September 23, 2013
The new OS from Apple made it full of fundamental changes. If you have iPhone 4, iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 you mish have upgraded to iOS 7 and if not go for it now. Feature wise it is the best iOS version that Apple has ever introduced with some issues for battery life which can be saved by following some tweaks.

When we say iOS7 is inspired by Android and Windows Phone, then there should be some reason which made us to write this post. If you have an Android device or a Windows Phone then you should be aware of some features which is similar to iOS 7.

Apple used to have skeuomorphism design which helps in turning on the faux glass effect and with this they used real world symbols giving a 3D look. Once Microsoft made their logos and operating system apps look like 2D and very flat, Google introduced a flatter used interface afterwards and released Ice Cream Sandwich. In a similar way Apple also followed the same concept and they removed the skeuomorphism design  with all the decorations and moved to flatter and sleeker designs with apps.

Here are the iOS 7 features which resembles with Android And Windows Phone :

1. Control Center : 

Similar to Android gadgets, iOS7 also introduced a easy approach where you can easily switch on or off Wi-Fi/data connection or change brightness by opening the notification shade by swiping down from top of the screen.

2.  Thumbnail View : 

Thumbnail view was introduced by WebOS in 2009 and late on this feature was adopted by Google Android. Even Microsoft stepped into the same method implementation of multitasking in Windows Phone.  Apple also shows thumbnail view of open apps when multitasking in going on. It means it is similar to the Android where we find apps keep running at background.

3. Swipe On Lockscreen : 

Like Android phone, now you can swipe at any area on iOS 7 device to unlock it. Earlier it used to be there but in a particular area. 

4. App Updates : 

If you want to change the setting for app update automatically, Android allows you to do that when phone is connected to internet. Apple has also added similar feature.

5. Dynamic Wallpaper : 

You can select from multiple dynamic wallpapers of faux 3D. This is similar to Live Wallpaper in Android.

Even it is having multiple useful features, it lacks in some areas where Android is ahead. Here are the aspects where iOS 7 stays behind Android :

1. Fixed App Usage : 

Unlike Android, you can't change the web browser in iOS 7 because it is fixed and you have to use Safari as Apple wants it to be used. On the other hand, Android has the option to choose the default browser from Chrome to Opera or any other.

2. Third Party Apps : 

Apple is very much strict when it comes to device security and that is the reason iOS 7 has very few approved apps which can be used. On the other hand, Android has plenty of third party apps which can be used to share information. 

3. Widgets : 

In Android widgets are used and useful also. iOS 7 has no provision for widgets.

Apple has already made huge changes to iOS 7 and hopefully it will be able to fix the ongoing issues and will work on the pitfalls. Share your experience with iOS 7 and comment.


How To Stop iOS 7 Battery Consumption

Posted By: Poketors - September 22, 2013
iOS 7 offers some great features and with these features people are crazy about the latest OS from Apple. With some eye-catchy, excellent features, iOS has been in news for destroying battery life. iOS is supported on all older devices on or after iPhone 4 models but with some limitations.

If you want to make a stable and standard battery life of iOS device, you may try the below tweaks on settings.

1. Background App Refresh :

This feature is very useful when you don't use your device but it is a big reason to drain your battery. If you disable this feature then you can save your battery life but just a few apps would refrain from refreshing, that can be ignored.

2. Location-Based Service :

Through tracking of location is useful for us but running these services lead to a quick battery consumption. Apps like Maps would give you a well tracked location service, but we can stop using this whenever not required would help us to save battery life. Sometimes people authorize other apps like Facebook or Twitter to track your location unknowingly. At least we can totally disable this feature on these kind of apps. iOS 7 has system level option for location tracking with compass and GPS. If you disable tracking these services on few apps would give you boost in battery life.

3. AirDrop :

iOS 7 has a cool feature called AirDrop to iPhones. It is very new features only introduced for iPhone released versions after iPhone 4, has dropbox style look. You can turn it off whenever you son't use it. To access this, iOS 7 has new Control Center which can be seen by swiping upwards on home screen. Once you get the center, you can disable AirDrop.

4.  WiFi And Bluetooth : 

From the same place where you disable AirDrop, you can find the options for WiFi and Bluetooth also. Disabling these features can also help you to save the battery life. 

5. Reduce Motion : 

 iOS 7 introduced an interesting and fancy looking 3D parallax wallpaper effect. You might be little bit upset while disabling it but it would definitely save your battery life. From option in the Accessibility menu, you can disable this feature by toggling on the "Reduce Motion".

6. Dynamic Wallpaper : 

Using dynamic wallpaper kills your battery life. Setting this feature might make your device look good but at the same time it drains your battery life.

Following the above features would definitely brings down the risk of battery consumption. Share your experience with iOS 7 with valuable comments and suggestions.

The body of the iPhone 5C is made from hard-coated polycarbonate plastic with a reinforced steel frame installed into
