Guide to Fix Common iOS 11 Problems

Image
Hello readers!! Alright, so I got a lot of message from iPhone users who just upgraded to iOS 11 having so many problems. So, here I have put up a list of the different problems I came over and how they were fixed. Hope this helps you all too!


Problem: Battery DrainWith any iOS update also comes battery issues. It's become too obvious already but, being able to handle iOS 11 isn’t a problem for the next-generation iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X, which all include an A11 Bionic chip. The trouble stands for those with an older processor, you might find your battery dying more quickly than it used to. Potential solutions: If you haven’t updated to iOS 11 yet, you might want to hold off until the issue gets fixed in the next update. But if you did download the latest operating system, you can still downgrade back to iOS 10.3.3 (I could post a tutorial for this let me know in the comments section).Find which apps are taking up the most power by going to Settings > Battery power. This will tel…

Online Learning – Does It Pay Off?

Image
At one point or the other, we have all thought about learning online. The question is, is it worth it?The ease of access to the internet has tremendously increased the scope of online learning. But is it really worth it? Let's take a look at the benefits of online learning for students (especially programmers and developers).

FLEXIBILITY AND BALANCE

Probably the hardest thing about taking up an online course or learning something new is to find the time to do it. Everyone is engaged in activities relating to their personal lives and other commitments. There is a significant amount of time spent in traveling (especially for students who live far away from their respective institutions), reaching the classroom, sitting and waiting for the lecturer to arrive, and then the hassle to travel back. However, the importance of education and building a future for yourself and your family cannot be ignored. Through online learning, you can balance both of these very important things. Courses a…

Not Getting Hacked Is Simple

Let's keep our precious devices secure!



Hackers using stolen iCloud credentials have been able to use Apple’s Find My Device features to remotely lock down Macs and iPhones. They demand Bitcoin ransoms from theusers. NO, it is not Apple getting hacked. It is just a person desperate to earn money trying different combinations (Brute Force Attack) to get into your iCloud.






My Advise? Do not reuse passwords. Keep separate passwords for each account. Simply use different passwords for different services. As long as you don’t reuse passwords, and your iCloud login is distinct from any of your username and password combo that may have been affected by a recent hack, you are safe. Hackers won't have the ability to sign into your iCloud account and impair your Mac or iPhone.
The problem: HOW SHOULD I REMEMBER SO MANY PASSWORDS?
Well, there are various options. 
1. Save them in an Excel file. 2. Use a password manager software. (I personally would recommend this or this). 3. The browser can sa…

DIY You Own Amazon Echo

Hello, readers. First of all, a BIG thank you for the tremendous response on my previous post about why you should not pay for an antivirus. If you missed it, click here to read. 
I got many requests after reading the How To Make Your Computer Talk Like JARVIS post to write up a similar DIY project for Raspberry Pi. So here it is!



The Amazon Echo is useful to have around the home. It can play podcasts, take reminders and notes, tell you the length of your commute, even control other appliances in your house. But at prices ranging from $50 to $150, it’s an expensive proposition if you’re not sure you’ll use it. Good news though, you can make a fully-functional one using a Raspberry Pi. What exactly is different about this version? First off, the end result is basically the same: you can activate your DIY Echo by saying the wake word “Alexa,” and the device works just like a real Echo.



The installation process here is different though. Instead of using Amazon’s official resources, we’ll use…

As a general IT consumer having various expensive electronics, you decide to keep them safe from malware and viruses. So, just like everyone else, you decide to look up "the best antivirus" to pay for and be safe. The '90s are gone and you could just be wasting or in simple terms, unnecessarily spending for the "protection". This does not mean there is no need to be worried about the infected and malicious software. They are plenty. For example, September 18, the facts about hackers having piggybacked malware onto one of the widely used tools, that was designed to optimize system performance on Windows PCs and Android mobile device known as CCleaner — According to Piriform, around 2.27 million users might have installed the infected version of the CCleaner software, a spokesperson told TechCrunch. The next thing you know, everybody is rushing out to buy a good (expensive) antivirus. There are various antivirus services that offer genuine tools that can defend you…

Resetting The BIOS password

Ok Guys so many people were asking me about resetting the BIOS password. Well basically there are 5 methods am going to talk about today.
1. Using a software  ( some require ADMIN access , and If what if its Linux?  :D  ) 2. Using master passwords ( different for different BIOS manufacturers ) 3. Using DEBUG console  ( Doesn't work in Win 7 and above since Microsoft removed debug.exe ) 4. Using cmos battery  ( regardless of any OS ) 5. Using cmos jumper  (  Regardless of any OS ) I ll explain about all of them 1. There are many softwares available on internet ( For example: cmos remover ) which have database for many BIOS manufacturers , BUT they do require Admin access ,  So YOU fail here !
2.  Every BIOS manufacturing company uses Master passwords , In case you forgot yours, this can help them in accessing BIOS again even if  you forgot your password for BIOS ( What I doubt is that since everybody knows about it , So now companies have eliminated this , Still you can try out )
