Google Photos Wastes Too Much Cellular Data
Google Photos is an extremely popular app designed to store, view, manage and backup your precious moments of life in image and video formats. Personally I use it on my both devices: Pixel and iPhone. But, as you might know, photos and especially videos consume a lot of storage when backed up and use a decent amount of cellular data when you view it (and even browse through the thumbnails). When talking about the Internet at your home there is no problem here because in most cases you use unlimited plan of your wired ISP. But how to preserve your mobile data – that is the question. I mean how to continue using your favorite app but but prevent Google Photos from wasting your cellular data in vain. In this article we will give our tips on this issue.
Another iOS 11 “Improvement”
Auto-Brightness Toggle was logically located in Display & Brightness in iOS 10. Right under the brightness slider. Oh, God. How convenient and intuitive it was. But in iOS 11 it disappeared for some reason. Maybe, the developers decided that “auto” mode works so perfectly that you will never want to disable it. So perfectly that you don’t even need to know where the Auto-Brightness toggle is located now. But personally I dislike the way the auto-adjustment works in many cases. That’s why I prefer to turn off Auto-Brightness in iOS 12 exactly like I did in the previous version. But how to find the toggle? Where do you think it is hidden?
I have to wait for a long time until my photos upload to Google Photos even when I’m connected to my router’s Wi-Fi network. I log in to https://photos.google.com/ on my laptop, press F5 but I can’t see new images in the roll. Yesterday it took them about an hour or so to start backing up after I came home with my phone. What’s wrong? Thank you.
