Copy your old data to your new iPhone 5

Posted by Admin on Dec 19, 2012 in iPhone 5

If your old iPhone was running iOS 5 or iOS 6, you can use the iCloud to copy your data to your new iDevice. Navigate to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup on your device and make sure it’s “On”. You’ll need a Wi-Fi connection and it will likely take some time. Note: you can also do this through iTunes which may be a quicker option).

You can copy your Contacts onto the iPhone 5′s new nano-SIM card and stick it into your new iPhone 5, then go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Import SIM Contact. If you don’t have a nano-SIM in your old phone, you can export your contacts. Different phones have different methods. One of the simplest ways, if you are switching from an Android handset, is to save your contacts in Gmail and then set up your Gmail account on your iPhone 5 via Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars. You’ll have the opportunity to import them.


Maximise your Battery Life

Posted by Admin on Mar 8, 2011 in Tips & Tricks

I love everything about my iPhone – the one major thing I would change however if the length of battery life.  I need to recharge my iPhone on a daily basis. The following are several tips to make the most of your battery life.

The iPhone’s screen is bright, however you shouldn’t be running it at full heat or maxmised brightness if you want to save battery power. Try reducing this to 10% brightness. You can make this change under Settings -> Brightness.

There is a sensor situated right above the earpiece, that detects ambient light. Your iPhone uses this sensor only once per session, just as you unlock the handset.

If you cover the sensor as you unlock the phone, you will fool the handset into thinking it’s in a dark room and it will reduce the screen brightness.

The iPhone’s autolock feature is good at shutting the screen off if you forget to lock this manually before placing it back in your pocket, purse or cradle after a call.  Try reducing the autolock time to 1-minute, to save battery life. This setting can be modified under Settings -> General -> Autolock.

Furthermore, you can turn off Bluetooth and WiFi if you don’t expect to be using them for a while. This will also greatly save your battery life. Finally, you can also set email fetch time to “Hourly” or “Manually” or even turn the “Push” off altogether in order to save energy.

To multitask with iOS4 on the iPhone simply double-tap the home button when an app is open (see below screenshot). This will produce a pop menu at the bottom of the screen showing your 4 most recently used apps. Clicking on each icon will load the appropriate app.

To close an open application, simply press and hold on an icon. The icons will start to “dance” – similar to moving icons on your homescreen, and click on the “-” symbol that appears in the top left corner (see below screenshot). This will close the selected app.
