It’s a scary thing, moving from Android to iOS, or from iOS to Android. Fortunately, in their competitive zeal to gain a bigger share of the market, companies have provided tools to assist in the process. They’re not perfect, but as we’ll see the transition from Android to iOS is greatly facilitated by an Android app.
Apple fans across the globe have reasons to be excited about. For one, Apple is due to start shipping the new MacBook Pro 2016 sometime in the next couple of weeks. This means anyone who purchased the laptop in advance will soon be able to use the much hyped Touch Bar.
Whether the hot new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus is the first iOS device you’ve ever owned or you’re a longtime iPhone users going on 10 years now, you don’t know all there is to know about Apple’s mobile software. There are so many features packed into iOS 10, and now iOS 10.1, that it’s literally impossible to know about all of them.
When buying a new (or second-hand) iPhone you should always check that it is unlocked. An unlocked iPhone can be used on any phone network, and is worth more money than a locked iPhone. This feature looks at how to check if an iPhone is locked or not.
So you’ve grown tired of the Android wilds and bought your ticket to the land of Apple. In this guide, we’ll help you pack for the trip and serve up a few tips to help the transition go smoothly. Breaking free of Google’s ecosystem and its team of manufacturers will present a few difficulties, sure, but we can find solutions.
An iOS hidden feature surprised P.M. Wright. She had deleted an email in iOS and a pop-up appeared that asked if she wanted to “Undo Trash.” She’d never seen it before, and wondered what precise action it would accomplish—undo the deletion of all her deleted email?
You know when you’ve upset Today Show co-host Hoda Kotb that you’ve crossed a line. That’s exactly what Apple did by changing up threaded emails in iOS 10’s Mail app, which has people across the internet befuddled. What’s with all the scrolling to read messages?
Whether you saved hard or took the plunge and contractually obliged yourself to pay for a shiny new iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, was it worth it? Are you experiencing any of the myriads of issues reported by users all over the world?
Do you hate having to take the time to listen to voicemails on your iPhone? (Especially from callers who take forever to get to the point.) Then it’s time to learn how to take advantage of the new iOS 10 voicemail transcription feature.
iOS 9 brought a useful new feature you may not have noticed yet. Known as “Facedown detection”, your iPhone can detect when it’s placed face down and won’t turn the screen on when notifications arrive. This can save a lot of battery power if you regularly receive notifications.
Have you noticed taking a screenshot is harder in iOS 10 and with iPhone 7? Maybe you tried to take a screen shot in iOS 10 only to discover that you either locked the device, sent it to the Home Screen, or summoned Siri instead? This is a fairly common occurrence when taking a screenshot with an iOS 10 device, whether it’s an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and has led some users to think that the mechanism for how to take a screenshot with iOS 10 was changed.
With iOS 10 came the removal of Slide to Unlock, which now if the slide right gesture is repeated sends you to the Today view Widgets screen complete with weather, calendar events, tabloids and news, Siri app suggestions, stocks, maps, and whatever optional widgets you have enabled on the iPhone or iPad. This Widget screen is accessible from the lock screen by default on any iOS 10 device.
I can’t say I’m a fan of everything about iOS 10. Apple seems to be following Microsoft down the path of change-for-the-sake-of-change, and not always for the better. For example, the new threaded view for email conversations? Hate it. iOS Mail now joins Gmail (when viewed in a browser) in making it virtually impossible to discern the newest section of a conversation. Ugh.
One of the few gripes I have with 3D Touch is that it’s not explicitly clear when you can use it throughout iOS to bring up more options. With iOS 10, 3D Touch has gained even more functionality, yet people are still discovering functionality that has seemingly been there, in some form, since iOS 9.
If you have a contact in your phone who has multiple emails or phone numbers, say for work, home, and cell phone, it’s easy to lose track of which number bubbles up to the top when you search for it. How-To Geek points out that you can set up a default number that simplifies this.

Now that iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are officially available for pre-order, you may be tempted to ditch your existing model for a shiny new one. Before you upgrade, however, you’ll likely want to migrate all of your info from the old iPhone to the iPhone 7. This includes apps and games, media (such as music, movies, TV shows, ebooks), podcasts, health and fitness data, and settings.
