YOU'VE probably been using an iPhone for years, but there are almost certainly some shortcuts you don't know about. We've tracked down some of the least widely known iPhone tips and tricks to help you get more from your expensive Apple mobile. 1. Close all Safari tabs It's possible (but not practical) to close all your Safari web browser tabs by swiping them away. But if you've got dozens of tabs open, it'll take you an age – and you'll probably miss a few swipes too. Instead, simply hold the overlapped squares icon in the bottom right-hand corner.

The BBC has announced that for the first time ever it will be showing the Wimbledon tennis tournament in 4K HDR via either BBC iPlayer or through Sky Q. If you have Sky Q and a compatible 4K TV you’ll be able to access the 4K (not HDR) matches directly from your Sky menu during each day. However if you want to stream it from BBC iPlayer you’ll need to be quick as the 4K HDR stream will only be made available to the first tens of thousands who click on the link. If you’re streaming it you’ll also need to make sure that a) you have a compatible TV and b) that your internet speed can actually support it. According to the BBC, to watch Wimbledon in 4K HDR you’ll need speeds of at least 40Mbps or 20Mbps for a slightly downgraded version. This is a continuation of the BBC’s World Cup trial where it will be streaming all of its matches in 4K and High Dynamic Range (HDR). The trial is a major step forward for the format that is still currently … [Read more...] about BBC Extends World Cup 4K HDR Trial To Include Wimbledon Tennis Tournament
