iPhone and Android - How to Fix 5 Most Annoying Things Forever

iPhone and Android – How to Fix 5 Most Annoying Things Forever

When it comes to consumer technology, there is a huge list of things that can drive us all to bananas.

Take the slow Wi-Fi. You can’t broadcast, you can’t join a video meeting, and that always happens at the worst of times.

Our smartphones help us get a lot done, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to take them out the window sometimes. Here are the top complaints I’ve heard and ways to fix them.

1. Screen brightness changes constantly

Apple’s Face ID does more than unlock your phone. It can also tell when you take care of your phone. If you look away, the screen dims, and your alert volume decreases, too.

Fluctuating brightness can be frustrating. You can turn off this feature.

Go to Settings, then Accessibility, then Face ID and Attention.

Turn off attention features.

On Android, adaptive brightness or auto brightness uses a sensor to adjust the screen based on your environment. Sometimes it works well, but not always.

The steps will vary based on your phone model, but here’s the starting point.

Go to “Settings”, then “Display”.

Find adaptive brightness and toggle it off.

2. The person you are talking to cannot hear you

When you’re on a call, your iPhone monitors the noise around you and tries to turn it down, so the person you’re talking to can hear you better. It’s a nice feature, but it could lead to “Wait, what did you say?” Often.

First, check the microphone volume. Press the volume up button on a call to set this. You can turn off noise cancellation if people still have trouble hearing you.

Go to Settings, then Accessibility, then Audio/Visual and turn off Phone Noise Canceling.

3. You don’t want bloatware

Android phones are notorious for being preloaded with apps that you don’t want or need. These intrusive programs are slowing down your phone and consuming storage space and battery life.

There are several ways to get rid of bloating.

Remove apps from your Android phone:

Open the Google Play Store app.

At the top right, click on your profile icon.

Tap Manage apps and devices, then Manage.

Tap the name of the app you want to delete, then select Uninstall.

Some applications cannot be deleted. You can disable it by long-pressing the app and tapping the disable option – or you can hide it on some Android phones.

Hide apps by tapping and holding the app and dragging it to the bottom of the screen to the Remove from Home screen box. This does not remove or disable the application; It moves her out of sight.

Hide apps from your Samsung phone

Open the app drawer, then tap the three dots at the top right.

Open the home screen settings (or just settings).

Select the option to hide apps.

Choose the apps you want to hide.

Confirm via the Apply or Done button.

4. Your group text is too talkative

Group messaging is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family, but the constant sounds can be too much. Here’s how to silence conversations on your iPhone:

Open Messages, then tap and hold a conversation.

You can also do this within the conversation by tapping the name(s) at the top of the screen and then turning on Hide Alerts.

This is a useful option, but you’ll still get notifications if someone mentions you in a group text message. You can also turn off this type of notification.

Go to Settings, then Messages.

Scroll down to Signals and turn off Notify me.

On Android, the steps to hide conversation alerts will vary based on your phone model. try this:

Open Messages, then tap and hold a conversation.

Tap on the three-dot icon in the upper right corner.

Select Mute notifications to open the settings for that contact or conversation.

5. Check out the home button

The iPhone 8 was the last model to have a home button. That was a long time ago, but I know change is hard, and you still might miss it. You can’t install the actual home button on your phone, but there is a feature that lets you get close:

Go to Settings, then Accessibility, then Touch, then AssistiveTouch.

Turn on AssistiveTouch. A button will appear on your screen.

Under Custom Actions, change the settings for single tap, double tap and long press.

If you want to try the closer Home button, set Single-Tap to Home, then drag the button to the middle of the bottom of the screen.

Now, when you press this default button, you will be taken to your home screen. salary!
