How To Fix Issues In iOS 12

The new iOS 12 has reached each and every corner. Even though the new operating system was launched to deal with the issues of older version, it has its own share of issues that the users are frustrated with. With every new version of iOS 12 comes some fixes to assist you give relief. But, where one issue gets solved, a new issue stands waiting for your every time, making it unbearable for the users.

How To Fix Issues In iOS 12

Even though users with older version of iOS are suggested to upgrade to the newer version, iOS 12 has its own share that prevents the users from updating. Every new version of iOS 12 solves the issues that were present in the older iteration as well as has its own new bugs. Moreover, users get insight of the new bugs if they are registered to the beta program, which is at the version 3.

And since the issues that are faced by the users are caused due to the new iOS, the solutions to these issues are rare. This leaves nothing but helpless. And hence, we are here today to assist you with some of the annoying bugs and help you solve them once and for all.

 

Cellular And Wi-Fi Connectivity Problems

Connectivity is the need of today’s generation. And one of the bugs that come with the new iOS 12 is cellular and connectivity issues. Users claimed that they were facing such issue in iOS 12.1.1. They claimed that while facing this issue you get detached from the cellular data completely or partially. This depends on the location or country you belong to. Using Wi-Fi connectivity was the only way for users to deal with this issue.

But with the latest iOS version, it is still vague if Apple has solved this issue or not. The solution to this issue is not guaranteed. Some users have recommended to reset the network settings. This can be done by going to Settings and clicking General. Next, you need to go to Reset and tap Reset Network Settings. This will not erase any data. Rather, it will erase all the settings and preferences related to the network (such as Wi-Fi password). And as mentioned earlier, the solution is not guaranteed.

Unable To Import iCloud Backups

A rare issue for users using iPads emerged when they claimed that they did not receive the latest iOS update. Hence, a lot of users using both iPhone and iPad were having iPhone with newer version than iPad. Users also reported that the process of setting up new iPad from an iCloud backup would not work.

The only solution to this issue was found, but with a price. Unless you do not have an iPad running with the latest iOS, it is recommended to install a new beta version with a $99 Apple Developer profile.

Issue With eSIM On iPhone XS, XR, And XS Max

If you are one of the users who faced issues while activating eSIMs on your iPhone XS, XR, and XS Max, here is a good news. The new iOS 12 update has a solution. Apple did not detailed much about the fix in the notes section during the roll out. But it might help to fix eSIM problem that users were facing.

iMessage Going To The Wrong Person

One more odd issue that users reported was after upgrading to new iOS 12, their iMessages were being sent to the wrong individuals. The reason for this bug is usage of same Apple ID by multiple people. If so is the case, all you need to do is switch to Family Sharing, which generates separate calendars, contacts, notifications, and much more.

One of the users recommended a bit more laborious. People having the same Apple ID should go into each of iMessage settings on their device and detach it from their Apple ID. Make certain they only have emails or phone numbers in the Contacts for whomever else is employing the similar Apple ID. This is a bit tricky job.

It seems that a few people are even stating that they are facing the problem even without the overlap of Apple ID. For this, all you can do is hope for Apple to roll out a fix in the next version of iOS 12.

Your iPhone XS Won’t Charge

Some of the users also reported that their iPhone XS Max and XS are not charging properly. A provisional solution to this issue is to make certain you connect your handset when it is lit and hear the connecting sound and see the animation for charging.

This is possibly a small issue that can be solved with a minor update. But Apple still needs to address it and we are sure that it will not be rolling out a new version for this fix alone. Hence, you need to hang around a bit for the official solution.

Faded Screens On iPhone X

Some iPhone X users have reported that after updating to new iOS 12, the colors on their display look “washed out” or faded. While this has not been experienced all over the world, it is not clear as to why users are facing this issue. For time being, some users have suggested to turn off the setting for Increase Contrast. This setting appears to be turned on in iOS 12 by default.

More Battery Drain

One of the most touted features in the iOS 12 was enhanced battery performance for older devices. On the other hand, users are claiming that after the update, the batteries of their device are draining unusually quickly.

To begin with, check health of your device battery to make sure that is not causing the issue. If the maximum capacity is less than 85%, it is time for a new battery to install. Next, if it is not the battery health issue, this might be an old issue seen in earlier version of iOS where the internal structure provisionally taxes iOS devices and drains the power quicker.

The solution to this issue is to reset the iPhone to factory settings and cleanly update to the latest iOS 12. Next, restore it from earlier backup. If this does not work, you can factory reset the device, install the new iOS 12. But do not restore using a back. Rather, install each app manually. If the issue still persists, all you can do is wait for Apple to roll out the fix.

Apps Not Working Properly

You may find that after upgrading to new iOS 12, some applications do not operate as they used to earlier. That is fine since they are shifting to a whole new environment. Besides, apps do launch a new version for themselves after a software update every time a new iOS version is released. All you need to do is go to App Store and see if there is updated iteration of the app in question.

Hotspot Won’t Turn Off

This may be a rare issue, but most of the users claim it to be present. When directly connecting a laptop to an iPhone 6S, it automatically reconnected. It remained intact even after closing the Personal Hotspot setting of the phone. This can be a defective setting from the carrier end or it might only happen in older models.

Now that you have had the solutions for most of the problems occurring in new iOS, we are sure you will be relieved to use your iPhone. Do let us know if this article was helpful or not by commenting below.

I am not.” Referring to Anushka Sharma’s boyfriend Virat as a guy who is too concerned about the way he looks and loves to shop, Salman Khanplayfully drifted from the topic and started talking about his personal life goals.

Most of these 75 places are shopping malls but museums and convention halls also find a mention in the list. Similarly, while most of these places are located in big cities like Delhi and Mumbai, some buildings from Raipur and Ludhiana too are a part of the project.
“We launched indoor maps in countries like the US earlier. Now we are bringing it to India. We worked with mall owners and authorities that manage a place to get the floor plans and location details and have added that information to Google Maps,” Suren Ruhela, director and product manager, India Google Maps, told TOI. “For now we are starting with 75 places. But as we get feedback from consumers and work with more partners, we hope to add more places.”  Read More News>>

Browse less, find more

Source: http://www.business-standard.com

You don’t like a helicopter salesperson, but you like to be addressed by name when you enter your favourite retail store. You have little time to browse through the products randomly piled across the shopfloor, but you hate to be prompted along the way. You are a fastidious shopper, but you don’t mind relevant suggestions while negotiating the aisles at the store.

Browse less, find more
This is one area where brick and mortar businesses have had an edge over online stores – the art of gently nudging the customer towards things that might not have been on her shopping list in the first place. Now online stores have closed that gap – the smart ones are working overtime to incorporate data-driven merchandising to provide targeted and relevant offerings that help visitors make a purchase. They are providing navigation that enables consumers to easily refine product choices by important product attributes. In short, e-retailers have entered the domain that was once the exclusive preserve of brick and mortar stores: that of guided discovery. Read more News>>

Android handsets are a lot cheaper than iPhones? Shocking!

While it might seem obvious that an Android phone is cheaper than Apple’s iPhone range, the average price of a phone running Google’s OS is now half the price of that from the Cupertino brand.

According to statistics site Statista (where you can see the price differences rising over the years) that difference currently sits at $374 (£224, AU$414), with iPhones selling at an average of $650 (£390, AU$720) and Android’s selling with a mean value of $276 (£165, AU$305).

Android handsets are a lot cheaper than iPhones
That means in 2013 the average Android handset was only around 40% the cost of an iPhone. So what do these numbers actually mean?

Global issue

In truth, the numbers are more indicative of a worldwide trend rather than that of the western world. While Android flagships like the HTC One or Galaxy S4 do generally come in cheaper than their Apple counterparts, the price issue is much wider.

Android handsets have dominated the budget market for quite some time thanks in no small part to the open source nature of Android. No cost to license the OS has led to a proliferation of super-cheap device, and even using the ‘full fat’ Android OS means lower-cost handsets like the Huawei Ascend G510 or the Samsung Galaxy Fame still bringing a relatively premium experience.

Galaxy S5 to launch with only a Full HD display?

Bored of S5 rumours? Well, here’s another: Samsung could be struggling to make enough high-res screens

Last week we’d have bet heavily on a few inalienable truths about Samsung’s next flagship phone: the Galaxy S5 will have a larger screen, it’ll come in two flavours, and the headline model will have a QHD display.

But that suddenly looks a little less likely according to ET News, which claims that the Galaxy S5 will launch in two flavours, but the first to hit the shelves will be the Full HD S5 (in early April / late March, according to the latest information) followed by the QHD option later in the year.

Separate sources have also confirmed this to TechRadar as well, which means we’re inclined to believe the veracity.

QHD chicken or Full HD egg?

The question is whether it’s the display itself that’s tough to make, or Samsung being able to increase the graphical processing power to a sufficient level to run the pixels – either way, the QHD panels have not even begun production, according to the report, while Full HD versions (which use a new type of pixel arrangement to improve the screen over the Galaxy S4) are already rolling out.

There’s also a question over the frame to be used with the S5 – will the QHD model come with a metal frame, or will that be used to give the Full HD flagship some lustre?

Rumours suggest that it might be tricky for Samsung to produce metal bodies to the level required for a widespread handset like the S5, which would explain the need to have two options on sale.

Either way it’s less than a week until we see one of the (likely) big-hitting phones of 2014 – we just can’t wait until the speculation stops.

Microsoft Accelerator Launches New Program For Late Stage Startups In India

As we have been writing, startup accelerators in India’s nascent ecosystem are beginning to seek more mature, late stage companies to work with. The latest to join this trend is Microsoft Ventures, which announced its Summer 2014 batch for the Indian accelerator today. Of the 16 startups selected, six will be part of Microsoft’s new Accelerator Plus program, aimed at helping companies who already have customer traction and are more mature.

The Six startups joining Microsoft’s new, late stage accelerator program are: MyBusTickets.in, Praxify, Thinxtream, Touchfone, ZingHR and Zoom.

The startups joining regular, early stage incubation program are: Appointy, App Virality, Bookpad, Boutline, Imly, InstaSafe, IntouchApp, Metaome, Sliderule and Voonik.

“This program is for more mature companies which are closer to VC funding.  Most of them have made significant progress, so much so that the startup ecosystem is taking their eyes off them,” Ravi Narayan, director of Microsoft Ventures said in a statement.

Microsoft Ventures in India has graduated 35 startups since August 2012, and about 80% of them have been funded so far. Two graduates, Adepto and Plustxt, have been acquired.

As we reported last week, accelerators are trying to figure out ways to get involved with more fundable, mature startups. This is because despite more money chasing early ideas, the Series A crunch seems to be even more real for those graduating from the accelerators. Accel India scanned around 1,000 companies across 62 different accelerators and incubators in India over last few years, and the results speak for themselves — only 30 of them went on to receive Series A funding.

How YouTube and Twitter Ruined Super Bowl Commercials

In a few days, the largest television audience it is now possible to assemble will see a new ad for Oikos Greek yogurt. The stakes couldn’t be higher: Getting in front of more than 100 million viewers for 30 seconds costs an estimated $4 million.

How YouTube and Twitter Ruined Super Bowl Commercials
Too bad, then, that the spot has already been branded a disappointment: “A lot of setup without much payoff,” Adweek shrugged earlier this week.

This, in miniature, is what the formerly glorious Super Bowl ad game has come to. If you’re ready for some football, you’ll have to wait until kickoff. But if you’re ready for some advertising, a slew of the most-awaited commercials of the year are available right now.

Thanks to advertisers’ frenzy to exploit the possibilities of social media and YouTube, it’s now possible for the letdown to actually precede the hype.

It’s an epic fumble, really. Everybody knows the Super Bowl is that one special day when Madison Avenue’s finest creations receive unrivaled attention — the one time a year that we all stop pretending we hate advertising. Read More News>>
