Ok guys so you have a new iPhone or you want to reset your iPhone and don’t want to lose your WhatsApp messages you will need to do a backup and restore. In this video I will show you how to do a backup and restore via iCloud. Lets get started.
The first step is to log onto your iCloud account with your
Apple ID and turn on a service called iCloud drive. So go into Settings and
iCloud. Scroll to the bottom and you should see your WhatsApp toggle switch. If
its off turn it on. And then also make sure your iCloud drive button is turned
If you go into your iCloud backup it should be on as well
and feel free to turn off anything you don’t need like Book and Shortcuts.
How to Backup & Restore WhatsApp Messages?
Ok we have now turned on iCloud backup for WhatsApp, let go ahead and do a backup of the messages in WhatsApp. Go into WhatsApp and tap the settings tab down the bottom. Next go into Chats and then Chat backup.
Under Chat Backup you will have a few options. The first one
is auto backup. This allows you to set an auto backup of the chats to iCloud
drive. Maybe set this to once a month. The second option is include videos,
remember that if you only have 5GB of backup space on your iCloud drive than
maybe leave this option turned off. Tap backup now and it should start saving
your messages to iCloud Drive. Press backup now and this should start to backup
your WhatsApp messages. Make sure you do this when your on WIFI, otherwise it
might eat up your cellular data.
Ok now you have done a Backup. Lets see how you do a
restore. So I will delete the WhatsApp app and reinstall it. Enter in your
phone number and setup WhatsApp. After you enter your phone number it will ask
you if you want to Restore from iCloud. It should then go ahead and download
all your chat history messages videos pictures etc.
You can see here it says it has Restored 10 messages. Enter
in your display name.
Once this is done you should be able to go in an check your chats. Also guys don’t forget to check out my other video such as unboxing of the Aorus KD25F Gaming Monitor. And do me a favour hit the subscribe button and smash the bell icon.
The Aorus KD25F is a 24.5 inch 240hz Gaming monitor with a 0.5ms response time. Its also Gsync and Free sync compatible. The KD25F retails for around $400 usd and $750 aussie at the time of this video. Other features include LED Fusion lighting, Aim Stablizer and what I consider the best feature of them all OSD SideKick. Lets take a look what you get inside the box.
You get three different power plugs. So it looks to be a
Chinese power plug, an Australian New Zealand power plug and a US power plug.
Next we have display port 1.2 and a HDMI 2.0 cable. Its nice that you get one
of each. In some monitors you will only receive one cable. And last up we have
a USB 3.0 cable which powers the USB hub and OSD SideKick software.
A monitor in this price range should come with a really good stand. And the Aorus KD25F monitor doesn’t disappoint with a really solid base to the stand. More about this later in the video. Its looks a bit like a boomerang.
Next up is the arm that connects to the monitor to the base. Taking the monitor out of the box you can see it has a Energy rating of 4 stars and while on the Gigabyte website it says it uses 60 watts on average it uses about 21 watts. Which is actually pretty good for a gaming monitor.
Also in the box you get the installation guide and warranty card.
The stand is solid as and the arm and base just slot it
together. After this just tighten the screw on the base. On the back of the
monitor you have a power plug with an on off switch and a Kensington lock. You also have a toggle switch to navigate the
monitor OSD which is really helpful when navigating the menus. Above that Audio
and Microphone jacks. Two HDMI posts, one Display Port port! USB 3 in port and
two USB 3 out ports.
On the back of the monitor itself you will find 4 screws
which means the monitor has VESA wall mounting support. Helpful if you want to
change stands. The stand snaps into place nicely and there is a quality feel to
it. There was talk on the internet about the stand being flimsy and wolling
allot and it does move when I shake like this. However after testing the
monitor for about a week I didn’t find it to be an issue at all.
Once setup the monitor take up about 21 cms of desk space.
This means if you have a small desk it like I do. It will sit off the wall
about 21 cms. Its not a deal breaker but just something to be aware of.
Rotate the Stand
The stand not only looks great but it allow you to ajust the height. Also the pivot the monitor 90 degrees. Tilts up and down. And it can swivel 20 degrees side to side.
The stand has the Aorus Wings of Excellence design which looks cool. But in my opinion it lacks functionality. You can change the colour of the LEDS on the back of the Aorus KD25F monitor and the stand however they are very bright and most of the time you wont see them so they are a complete waste of time. If they were brighter you could shine them on a wall behind the monitor like I have done with my LEDs and it would make for an excellent gaming experience. The stand also has a nice built in handle, which is handy if you need to carry it.
Iam going to spend a bit of time going through the OSD SideKick because I think its really cool.
OSD Side Kick – Best Feature !
The OSD sidekick software allows you to control the settings
of you monitor with your mouse. You need to plug the USB into your computer for
it to work but it has some great features.
The first thing you will notice the Aorus KD25F monitor is really bright, to the point of where its hard to look at. So in the OSD there is a set of seven profiles. Each of these profiles give you different settings such as Brightness, Contrast, Sharpness, Black Equalizer, Colour Vibrance, Low Blue Light and super resolution. This means you can set a really bright profile for gaming and then another low light profile for browsing the internet or working. Then you can bind these profiles to a Hot Key so you can change them on the fly. Here you can see change a few settings within the Aorus profile.
Next up we have the Gamma setting which you can change as
well as the colour temperature. However, the one I want to talk about most if
the Overdrive setting. The Overdrive setting controls the response time of your
monitor, which is very important for RTS and First Person shooter games. You
have three settings Quality, Balanced and Speed. Quality is over drive turn off
and it’s the slowest setting. It has an average Gray to Gray of 5.5 ms and no
overshoot. The Balanced setting has a faster response time of 3.1 ms Gray to
Gray and still no overshoot so this is a great setting to use for that balance
between speed and quality. Speed mode is the fastest with an average of 1.5 ms
gray to gray. However you will start to see some overshoot errors and ghosting
with this mode.
Ok so the next setting is Aim Stabilizer, this reduced the motion
blur in fast moving games. However you cant use this feature with the FreeSync
function enabled. And to be honest I couldn’t see any difference with this on.
FreeSync and G Sync
Turning on the FreeSync option will turn FreeSync or G Sync
on depending on if you have AMD or NVidia graphics card. When this option is
turned on it eliminates screen lag and tearing whilc playing games.
The Cross Hair option is borderline cheating. Turning this
on will allow you to paint anything in the middle of the screen. So if I click
on the edit button and paint a crosshair or anything else this gives an
advantage over other players for sure. I was surprised how easy it was to make
PIP and PBP. This setting allows you to create a picture
inside your picture or make two pictures beside each other. Lets take a look.
As you can see here I now have my laptop and monitor computer screen side by
side. Now the settings is picture in picture and I can change the size and the
location of the picture. You can also swap your pictures around and bring the
small picture to the front and large picture to the back.
Cheating Possible with the Aorus KD25F Monitor
I racked my brain thinking how this technology could be used
and then it hit me. If you are a stream sniper you could use this to follow someone’s
stream at play your own game. Then I realised you could watch a team mates
stream and you might be able to see what enemy players are. It would be delayed
slightly but still helpful!!! Again great from cheating. J
Dashboard is pretty cool. Lets say you want to keep an eye
on the temperature of your CPU or GPU you can do it through the dashboard. It
makes a little display which you can make it see through so it doesn’t get in
the way. It’s a nice feature. Just turn off what you don’t need. For me the CPU
and GPU temps were pretty helpful.
You can turn the LED indicator on and off on the monitor.
Not a big deal, but I also wanted to show you that there is a mic pin hole just
above it which works with the noise cancelling feature.
There is also a noise cancelling feature which people on the
internet said it would be good for when you take your computer to a lan party.
But I was thinking it would probably be best for those of us who intend on
getting on discord with loud clacky keys. Hopefully this feature would filter
out allot of that background noise.
Here is some footage of the Crosshairs in action! I will be
selling the 123 crosshair on my website. Just kidding J And here is the default
crosshair. Its pretty good.
Also guys don’t forget to check out my other video such as The Witcher Media PC Build. And do me a favour hit the subscribe button and smash the bell icon.
If you did not know already, The Witcher is Netflix series, which is due to be released on the 20th of December. Before that, it was a series of books written by Andrzej Sapkowski. In 2015, The Witcher 3 game was released and it won numerous Game of the year awards. This was one game that I felt like I missed out on playing, so when I found out that the Witcher 3 supports XBOX controller on the PC. I decided to build a media pc complete with an XBOX controller.
In this build, I repurpose an OLD HP Z800 which featured in a Cryptocurrency CPU build I did. And I will be reusing an RX 570 card which I used in the Kraken mining rig build. I will put a link to that video as well.
All right let get started.
If we take, a look at the specs needed to run the Witcher in the z800 we have 12 GB of ram and duel Xeon X5660s which is more than enough and adding the rx570 should give us a great result for a media pc build.
First up let’s remove the Nvidia Quadro 4000 card. Remove
the 6 pin power plug first. You might have noticed I did not use the GPU clip,
which unlocks the card from the motherboard. That is because I’ve modified the
clip and when I say modified I really mean I broke it. I did this because I
found the clip annoying when adding and removing cards.
Install the GPU RX 570
Let’s remove the Sapphire RX 570 from the Kraken mining rig
by removing the 8 pin power cable. As well as removing the PCIE connector from
the bottom. The Sapphire RX 570 cards are great for mining and gaming and heres
why. They have a dual bios switch, which means you can have one bios for Mining
and one bios for Gaming. So I just switch the bios switch over and start gaming
with it. I do not have to flash the bios or anything messy like that.
As you can see she’s a bit dirty, so let’s give her a quick
clean up before we move her into the case.
Alright let’s add the GPU to the case. Pretty straight
forward. Just add the card in the same spot we removed the Quadro 4000 card
The Z800 only comes with 6 pin power connectors. So we need
to add a 6 pin to 8 pin power connector. You can get these cheap online.
Make it power efficient as possible.
I am going to remove the SATA hard drives and replace them
with a faster SSD. You could keep these in if you wanted extra storage for games
or movies, but I do not need it and they will just waste power being plugged
The SSD I am going with is a Kingston brand and I could slot
it into the same spot as the SATA hard drive, however it will not have any
support there so I am going to gerry rig it inside the case.
Add in a new SATA cable and give it some power. And then I
just find a spot to wedge it in the drive bay area and it’s good to go. Plug
the SSD into the motherboard on bay 0. Remove the power from the DVD drive
since I am not going to be using that.
Close the case and hopefully we are done on the inside of the build. Next up plug in power keyboard and mouse into the media pc build.
Install Windows 10
To install Windows 10 I’ve got an installer copy on this Seagate
USB hard drive. Newer USBs do not seem to detect properly on this older
computer. Do not forget our HDMI cable for our monitor. To boot into bios or
boot menu. On your keyboard you might have tap F2 Delete or in this case of the
Z800 you press F9. Once you are in the boot menu select the USB device. Then go
ahead and install Windows. When windows finishes installing remove your USB hard
Check that your RX 570 card is correctly installed. This is
important if they were used for Cryptocurrency as they will show up with a
yellow exclamation mark next to them and your game will be slow or not even
load. Make sure your driver date is on the money as you can see here mine is
recent so we are good to go. This next addition is what will really make the build
shine. We are going to add in the XBOX controller. The Beauty of the XBOX
controller is when family or friends come over to your house and they are a bit
bored, you throw them an XBOX controller and they are instantly entertained.
XBOX Controller working?
All right plug in your XBOX USB and let it detect in Windows. Go ahead and pair your controller it, the USB should flash when successful.
Ok so I have connected the Z800 to my LG TV and I’ve got my XBOX controller ready to go for the media pc build. But I feel like there is something missing. I still feel like there is something missing. How about LEDS? That is better!
Cool, let’s fix up the TV settings. On the LG TV I have this
button called Q menu and it allows me to choose a few different TV options such
as Gaming and Cinema. What I noticed is the picture on Cinema was far superior
to Gaming. Because I am not playing the game competitively, I am just going for
the best picture and man it really made a difference. Take a look.
I decided to leave it on Cinema. A quick check to see how
many frames the RX 570 is giving me and as you can see here, it is a solid 60
frames. Its a great result. I tested this on my 120 hertz monitor. I set the
game to unlimited so I am sure it is higher than this but maybe it is a limitation
of the TV.
