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 new 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. A pop-up will appear asking if you want to close all tabs – hit yes, and you're done! 2. Move your cursor more easily If you make a mistake in text, or you're simply trying to move your cursor, it can be a nightmare. Getting your cursor into the exact position you want it to be in through tapping or drag-and-holding isn't ideal But you own an iPhone 6S or later, you can use 3D Touch – which is Apple's nickname for … [Read more...] about New iPhone tips and tricks – the best hidden features, secret controls and shortcuts revealed
Iphone just says searching
APPLE customers are complaining that their iPhones aren't charging when they're plugged in. The issue appears to primarily affect the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max smartphones, but some users say even their older handsets aren't working right either. For people using older iPhones, they say the issue is happening after updating to iOS 12 – Apple's latest mobile software. Users say that the iPhone doesn't automatically start charging when plugged in, and only works after several tries. A thread about the issue on Apple's official support forums has received nearly 300 replies about the issue. One poster wrote: "So just got my new iPhone, and noticed this issue I've been having. "I connect the Lightning cable to my phone to charge and most of the time it automatically charges. "However I've noticed several times plugging the phone in and no charge comes up. "Tried unplugging and plugging back in, sometimes it'll work." Another user replying to the thread claimed that they had … [Read more...] about iPhone charging bug – iOS 12 update may be preventing some users from charging their phones
APPLE'S new (and pricey) £1,249 iPhone costs just £337 to build, apparently. That's according to analysts who say the actual parts for Apple's 256GB iPhone XS Max come in well under the retail price of the phone. Gadget geeks at Tech Insights have torn open the new blower, and tallied up the cost of individual components. They came to a total bill of $443, which works out at around £337 at current exchange rates. This is actually an increase on last year's smaller iPhone X, which was believed to have cost $395.44 (or £301) in raw materials. Some of the pricier components dragging up the cost include the new display, camera, processor, and memory. This particular iPhone retails at £1,249 in the UK. The difference between the alleged cost of materials and Apple's actual price is £912 – not a bad profit margin. Apple also apparently made a slight saving too, by removing some components related to the 3D Touch system. That's the tech that lets you press … [Read more...] about Apple’s new £1,249 iPhone XS Max ‘costs just £337 in parts’ – so why are you paying so much?

The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner has urged the Government not to forget about the West Midlands when it launches proposals to crack down on serious violence. Home Secretary Amber Rudd is expected to launch a new strategy for fighting serious violence next week. While it's been planned for months, the launch will follow a series of high-profile deaths in London. West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson said: "I hope as part of the government’s strategy there is real action and additional financial support for areas such as the West Midlands that have been blighted by violence." The high level of violence in London has understandably received a lot of attention. There have been 52 killings in the capital this year, most due to stabbings. The West Midlands also has a serious problem. In 2012 there were 1,566 knife crime incidents in the area served by West Midlands Police. By 2016 that number had risen to 2,296. And in 2012 the number of gun crime … [Read more...] about Police boss says the West Midlands is “blighted by violence”
