Hi guys Matt from 123myit here and in this video I will go over Apples iOS 12, Is it faster? we will find out.
Ok Guys I heard that Apple latest iOS 12 update should improve device performance rather than slow it down. So I thought I would give this upgrade a shot and test it on my older iPhone 5s and see if I notice any better performance along with checking out the new iOS 12 features.
Before upgrading I ran the Benchmark and you can see the result below with iOS 11.2.
The results from iOS 11.2 were as follows:
Single core score, 1261
Multi cord score, 2157
To upgrade your iPhones iOS to 12 you can do this by going into Settings > Software update.
And you will read in the update information it states iOS 12 brings performance improvements and exciting new features.
Below is a picture of the Benchmark result after the upgrade to iOS 12. As you can see the Benchmark does confirm Apples claims to being faster.
The results from iOS 12 were as follows:
Single core score, 1308
Multi cord score, 2169
For me personally I think this is a welcomed change from Apple who was always the company seen to slow down the older devices to force customers to upgrade their iOS device. Right now this means you might get a little bit more use out of older devices which is fantastic news, however lets see what happens when Apple releases iOS 13. Will they delivery the same positive boost?
Other features that have been added to iOS 12:
Measurement screen ar kit leveler tool
New animal emojis koala and t-rex
Create your own emojis
Screen time how you are using iOS device
Limits on apps
Downtime app limits
Content and privacy restrictions

This video will show you how to transfer data Android to Android 2018. This is helpful if you want to transfer files such as music, clips, photos, messages and contacts from Android to Android in 2018 using the Samsung Smart Switch software.
In this video we transfer data from Oppo R11 to Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
Head over to the Google Play store and download a copy of the Smart Switch app, play.google.com. Once this is downloaded to your old android device start the app on both phones.
Make sure both phones are added to the same wireless network wifi, if they are on different networks this wont work. Then you will want to select receive on the new device.
You should then see an option of iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows phone. Simply select which phone you want to Transfer data from.
In this video I select Android. You should then get a pop up on your old device asking if you want to accept the invitation from your new phone. Just tap Accept.
After this you should get a summary of all the data that is ready to be transferred to your new phone.
You can select the check boxes to add or removed anything you don’t need.
For example I pressed the cog icon and removed some old app that I no longer wanted on my new phone.
Once you have selected what data you need, just hit send. Next on your new phone you will need to select receive. Time it takes to move the data across will depend on how much data you have. Make sure you have a full charge of battery on both phones is you have allot of data to copy.
For more info on the Smart Switch software check out the Samsung website here.
This video will show you how to do a factory reset when you have Forgotten PIN Passcode Pattern on Samsung. The phone used In this video is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
In this video I will show you how to Unlock Samsung Phone if have Forgotten PIN Passcode or Pattern.
Ok guys so we have all done it, we have just setup a password or pin code on our Samsung device and we can’t remember what it was.
The unlock method I am about to show you is called factory reset and it will remove the Password Pattern or PIN Code, but the down side is it will also wipe the data on the phone. Remember that a PIN or password is setup to protect the data on the phone in case you lose the phone. So I suggest to try to remember the passcode or pin first.
A tip that can help you remember is, put the phone down for 30 mins and don’t think about it. Come back to the phone and try your Pattern or PIN again. Sometimes your muscle memory will just do the code automatically without thinking about it. Its worked for me before.
Ok the next thing I need to mention is FRP Lock, Factory reset protection.
FRP lock locks your device with the Google account that you used on your phone. So if you dont know your Google account then I suggest trying to remember if first as you will be asked to enter it after we do the factory reset. To find the Google account you can go to settings and accounts.
Ok lets get started with the Factory reset.
Simultaneously press and hold the power button + volume up button + home key until the Samsung logo appears, then release only the power button. Release the volume up button and home key when the recovery screen appears. From the Android system recovery screen, select wipe data/factory reset.
This video will show you how to Transfer data from iPhone to Oppo. In this video we transfer the iPhone 5S data to a Oppo R11 via iCloud.
This video will work with any iOS device so iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Make sure both your phones are connected to WIFI because we will be using the WIFI connection to upload download the data to iCloud.
Next sign into iCloud with your Apple Id on your iPhone and then move the slider bars to choose what data you want to upload to iCloud. Remember that this data will be the same data that you download to your new phone.
TIP: Turn off find my iPhone and any passcodes or security features that you might have on your iPhone iOS device. If you have an older version of iOS older than 11.4 you wont have messages available to backup. So just upgrade your iOS version your device.
Tap on iCloud backup, make sure it is turned on. Then tap back up now.
If you want to check what data you have uploaded to iCloud then you can check this by going into a web browser on a normal computer and go to www.icloud.com
On your Oppo phone go into the Tools menu > backup and restore and tap on clone phone menu. If you don’t have this option use the download link below.
Again you will need to use the data transfer software Clone Phone software to get the data from iCloud to the Oppo phone. You can get that free software on this link here.
And you will need to make sure this version is up to date. If it is not up to date then you wont have the iPhone iOS option. Follow the video for more info.
I hope this helps out.
This video will show you how to Fix iPhone, iPad or iPod Black Screen. This is helpful if your iOS device doesn’t turn on or turns on but the screen is just black.
The tips in this video will work for iPhone, iPad or iPod. And these tips can fix your iOS devices if you just have black screen but can still feel the device vibrating. Or it can fix issues with your device not turning on.
Basic steps first then harder steps later.
Make sure your device has a at least an hours charge. You iOS device battery needs at least 5% before it will turn on. Test your charger to make sure it not faulty. Do this by plugging it into another iOS device and check that its charging ok. The Adapter could be faulty the USB cable could be faulty as well.
Once you have checked your charger is fine and you have left your device charging for an hour the next step is to try putting your device in and out of download mode.
To do this press and hold down Home, Power and Volume down buttons.
You can try those same steps again but this time try the volume up button instead of the volume down button. Also try hold both volume down and up buttons along with the Home and Power buttons.
Next for the iPhone 8, iPhone plus or iPhone X.
Press and release the volume up button. Press and release the volume down button and then press and hold the power button.
And then you should wait for the Apple logo to come up.
Last step you can try plugging your iOS device into iTunes, this might force the iOS device to bootup otherwise you might get two options restore and update. Don’t press the restore button because that will wipe your data. Try pressing the update button.
In this video and article we take a look at the Apple iPad 6th Gen 2018 model which includes Apple pen support and upgraded CPU A10 fusion.
While the Apple pen doesn’t come with the iPad you can buy it for $99 USD. This is the first time the Apple Pencil has been included on the Apple iPad 6th Gen.
To pair the Apple pencil with the iPad its very easy. Simply remove the lid on the Apple Pencil and plug it into the lighting port on the bottom of the iPad. You should then see a message come up on the iPad telling you that the iPad is pairing with the Apple Pencil.
On the outside, the Apple iPad 6th Gen is exactly the same as the Apple iPad 5th Gen so nothing really new to see here. If you want to see our video on the old 5th gen iPad you can watch that here. Apple iPad Air 2 Unboxing & Review Or if you are looking for our Apple iPad Pro review check it out here. Apple iPad Pro Unboxing & Firstlook
However the Gold colour iPad has been replaced with a kind of pinkish gold now. Its still called gold but the new gold is a warmer colour now.
The Pencil is great but it doesn’t work so well as a general navigation tool. So to get the most out of the Pen you will need to find applications that support it. In the video I use the Apple notes application and it works quite well.
The battery is a 32.4 watt hour battery and according to Apple you should get around 10 hours of battery life.
Using the iPad is still the same as pervious versions. Swiping down brings you to the search menu. Swiping down from the top of the iPad will give you your notification’s menu. Swiping across will give you your widgets menu. Swipe up from the bottom will give you your recent apps menu along with the control centre.
The HP ProBook 430 G5 is HP’s low cost answer to enterprise or education laptops.
The main difference between the HP ProBook 430 G5 and the HP ProBook 430 G4 is the CPU upgrade and some cosmetic changes to the outside of the laptop.
For me I preferred the silver plastic on the HP ProBook 430 G4 and if you want to see the 123myIT review on that model check it out here.
The CPU is a 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-8250U Processor, up to 3.4 GHz with Intel®Turbo Boost Technology, 6 MB cache, 4 cores. This model also has a 256 GB M.2 SSD, this means that the computers overall performance will be much faster then the HP ProBook 430 G4. There is enough power in this laptop to do some video editing.
This laptop can play some games but not really recommended as it has an Intel® HD Graphics 620 built in graphics. If you are looking to play the latest games maybe try and get a Nvidia or AMD Graphics card in your laptop.
13.3″ diagonal HD anti-glare LED-backlit (1366 x 768)
8 GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB)
256 GB M.2 SSD
Prices for this model start $639USD and the model we got came with a free HP carry bag. So its a pretty good deal if you actually use the carry bag.
One of the negatives to this laptop is the trackpad. I find that I am constantly missing the area for a right click. This means that when I want to right click I have to press the trackpad several times to find the right spot. While this is not a massive deal it is kind of frustrating and should be something that HP take note of moving forward with new laptops.
I hope you liked this video and that it helped out.
In this video I show you how to transfer all of the following data from Android to Oppo mobile phone.
As soon as you get a new phone you will need to copy across Videos, Music, Pictures, Documents. It can be tricky moving data from Android to Oppo mobile phone because the phones are made by different companies.
To start this process you will need to go into the Tools menu on the Oppo phone and go to backup and restore. Next you will need to press update. This then creates the tool called Clone Phone. This is the tool we will use to move the data between the two phones.
Clone phone will then have two options.
New phone or Old phone.
Next you will need to download the Clone phone app on your Samsung or Android phone if it is not on there by default. To do this you can use this link. http://i.clonephone.coloros.com/download
Put the link above in your phones web browser and download it. Once you have downloaded the app go into your setting and allow it to work on your Android phone. It will need permissions to do this.
Once the Clone phone app is allowed and installed open it up. Press start cloning. It should come up with a QR reader. Scan the barcode of your Oppo phone.
It should say connecting and then the two phones should connect.
If you have issues connecting the two phones make sure you turn off security features like passcode or screen lock.
Press the Start Cloning button to start moving all your data across.
Pretty straight forward not much more to know. Its complicated if you don’t know how to do this so I hope my video will really help.
Apps and their data, Contacts, Messages and call logs should also copy across with this process.
