Wi-Fi Privacy Warning on iPhone or iPad. How to Remove?

iOS 14 Beta 2 brought an extremely useful feature for improving Wi-Fi privacy & security. From now on your iPhone and iPad that run iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 respectively will use a random MAC address for every new Wi-Fi network you join. This will prevent the admin of the hotspot or server from tracking your device.

As I understood, the unique random MAC will be used for each network. This will be especially useful when connecting to public hotspots because from now on you can opt to not expose the real physical address of your Wi-Fi module.

How to Transfer a Large File from iPhone to Windows 10 PC (Mac)

video file uploaded to Google Drive from iPhone 11

In this guide I will explain my favorite quick way to wirelessly transfer a large video, audio or any other file from an iPhone to a Windows 10 PC or Mac without compressing and loss of quality.

The Backstory

I hate sending videos via Telegram, WhatsApp or Viber because messengers compress files severely: decrease resolution and bitrate. This option can be okay for sending small funny videos just to laugh and forget but they will kill the quality of your vacation footage shot in 4k 60 fps. You may say: “so share it using Google Photos app”. But the majority of users use the free plan on Google Photos where videos are also being compressed.

Say, you are eager to edit your video file on your computer but you don’t have an opportunity to connect your devices via USB. Here is my favorite method.
