Why cannot I change the auto-lock timeout on my iPhone? It shows grayed out 30 seconds and accordingly my iPhone keeps locking every 30 seconds which is inconvenient for me. I’d like to increase the automatic lock time to perhaps 1 minute.
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.
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. So what to do if you want to wirelessly transfer a video file from your iPhone to your Windows 10 PC or Mac without losing the original quality? 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.
File Transfer Problem Between iOS 13 (iPadOS 13) and Windows 10
When I connect my brand new iPhone 11 with iOS 13.1 to my Windows 10 PC I face the following issue. I can normally download photos but I as soon as I try to copy at least one video file I immediately get the error “A device attached to the system is not functioning“.
On iPhone 11 the camera app has a different design compared to such on iPhone 8, 7 and some other models. I often saw users to look for a compulsory “flash on” mode but they didn’t find it in the place. I mean, it is possible to force off, but it is impossible to force turn on. The icon indicates that the flash is on, but to the surprise of the user, it does not light up when taking picture. Here is how to force enable the flash in the native camera app on iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.
Sooner or later Google app will suggest you to use your device to accept and decline the access to your Google Account. If you agree, you will receive log in requests on this device when you sign in to your account on a new piece of hardware. You will see the “Unlock your Pixel” or “Unlock your Galaxy S10” prompt on a new device, then you are to take your trusted device in hands and tap Yes to confirm that it is really you trying to log in to your Google account (Gmail, YouTube, Google Photos, or whatever from Google ecosystem). But in some cases you may want to exclude a particular phone or tablet from the list of trusted devices. Continue reading
App icons size has always been the popular issue on iPhone and iPad. Someone wants to fit more icons on a single home screen, another person prefers bigger icons due to their age. Tastes differ. Over the years and until today, iPhone and iPad owners have resorted to a workaround – they used the Screen Zoom option to make app icons larger. But iPadOS 13 brought us a new marvelous native feature and now you can make app icons bigger or smaller at your taste and switch between the two icons sizes when you need it.
The method was introduced on July 2019 and is applicable to iPads running iPadOS version 13 beta 5 or later.
