Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the iPhone SE in three minutes. The iPhone SE is basically an iPhone 8 with the A13 Bionic processor from the iPhone 11. Pricing for the iPhone SE 2 starts at $399 USD and it comes in three different colours, Black, White and Product Red.

What you get inside the box iPhone SE 2

First up in the box you will find the documentation, Quick start guide, SIM card eject tool, Warranty information and Apple stickers. Next you have the iPhone SE itself. Other accessories are Earpods with lighting connector. Lighting USB cable a five watt USB charger which will take 2 hours and 45 minutes to charge to full. Not to forget that the SE supports wireless charging and is IP67 water and dust resistant.

The SE has a 4.7-inch widescreen LCD multi touch retina HD display with IPS technology. It has a 1334 by 750-pixel resolution at 326 ppi. If you compare it with the iPhone 11 Pro on the left, you can see the Pro has allot more screen real-estate on its 5.8-inch OLED display. In reality though they are almost the same body size with the Pro being 6 mm taller and 4 mm wider and only a mm thicker.

No Face Unlock, but you get Touch ID.

There is no face unlock just the all too familiar home button which has the Touch ID fingerprint scanner built in. On the front top of the SE we have a 7 megapixel FaceTime HD camera compared with 12 megapixel on the Pro. Both have a F2.2 aperture. On the back of the SE you have a single 12megapixel Wide camera, however the Pro also has a Triple Camera setup which features a Ultra Wide, Wide and Telephoto cameras.

A13 Processor

The SE has the same A13 processor as the iPhone 11 Pro and here is the benchmark. Single core and Multi core score are almost the so not allot of difference in terms of performance. A fast processor is important when playing games and videos or when generally moving around the iPhone.

Battery life is the same as the iPhone 8 and you can expect about 27 hours between charges. This will get you about 8 hours or streamed video playback.

Get Windows 10 for FREE

Ok let us get started. You will need a Mac a USB stick and a copy of Windows 10. To get a FREE copy of Windows 10 you can get it from the 123myit.com website under downloads. However, you will need a Windows computer to download that copy onto your USB drive. In the Downloads section scroll down to where it says Windows 10 Media Creator tool and run that. Select create installation media for another Pc. For language, I select English US, Edition Windows 10 Pro and Architecture 64 bit.

Next we want to select ISO file. This is the Windows 10 file that we will copy to the USB and then from that USB we will copy it to your Macs Desktop.

SanDisk USB C and USB 3

Ok so I have already copied the Windows 10 ISO file to my Macs Desktop from the USB stick. The USB stick I am using is a SanDisk Dual drive USB. It has both USB C and the older USB 3 so I don’t get stuck when using USBs on my new MACs. They are helpful I will leave a link here. Once the Windows 10 ISO file is copied to your Macs desktop. Go ahead an open Boot Camp assistant. Just click on finder and search Boot Camp.

Ok if Boot camp does not select your Windows 10 ISO file Automatically go ahead and select it manually. Mine has detected so all is ok.

Windows 10 on Mac
Partition the Macintosh hard drive to keep both Mac and Windows.

Partition your Macintosh HD

The next step is to Partition your drive so that you can fit Windows 10 onto you Mac. If you are unsure about this just move your slider to halfway. Click install and then your Mac will download the Windows support software. This may take a while so let the Mac do its thing. Next, it will partition the disk and just follow the prompts it will restart.

If everything has gone ok you should see the Windows 10 setup screen. Just go ahead and select the options for Language and Click do not activate Windows now.

Ok select your country and follow the prompts to setup Windows 10.

So setup for personal use, click that and I always just use offline account. However, feel free to setup Windows whatever way you want. Click limited experience and then type in your user name. I just create 123myIT as a user. Add in a password and click next. I always click no and decline. Up to you, what you want to select for Privacy settings I just click no.

Installed Windows 10!

Awesome you have just installed Windows 10 on a Mac. The last step here is to make sure the Boot Camp drivers are installed. It is an important step so do not skip this. Otherwise, things like your sound buttons on your Mac will not work properly.

You should see a Boot Camp Window on your screen just click next and follow the prompts. If you didn’t get this screen go back into your Boot Camp folder on your hard disk and run the boot camp setup.exe file again. If you want to check your drivers are installing properly go into device manager and you should see all the devices install properly.

Sweet that is finished now check your devices and you can do a restart and test if your Sound and Volume buttons work ok.

How to Clean & Disinfect your iPhone & Case

How to Clean & Disinfect your iPhone & Case

Hi Guys Welcome to 123myIT.

Let me ask you this, when was the last time you cleaned and disinfect your iPhone? If your answer is never or rarely then now is probably a good time to start.

Apple has just recently updated their website on  what you can do to clean or disinfect your device. So I wanted to show you guys how to do that.

Disinfect your iPhone

To disinfect your device Apple says you can use a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfectant Wipes. They also recommend warm soapy water and apply these with a soft lint free micro fibre cloth.

Disinfect your iPhone
Disinfect your iPhone

I would recommend warm soapy water over the a disinfectant alcohol for three reasons. The first reason is you don’t know what chemicals are in the wipes so do you research especially if you have Asthma. Seriously, it only takes a Google search to find out. Second, those chemicals could burn certain parts of your phone and the last reason wipes are just not good for the environment.

If you don’t have soap then warm clean water is the next best option and if you don’t have a microfiber cloth any lint free soft cloth will do.

Don’t press hard on your phone when cleaning

Now to clean your phone if you have a case just remove it. Here I have an iPhone case from Element I will put a product link in the description below. I will show you how to disinfect and clean your case as well.

When cleaning your device what you don’t want to do is wipe to hard or excessively. Use a soft lint free cloth. Don’t use paper towels. Make sure your device is unplugged from any cables and don’t use sprays or anything that can get into the ports.

Alright so just take your disinfectant wipe an gently wipe the device over. You just need to apply enough so its moist not wet. And you should be able to see that moisture that I have applied on the screen and cameras. Make sure you lightly do the sides of the device as well. If I turn the screen off you should be able to see the disinfectant on the screen.

Ok once you’re finished just sit your device down for 4 to 5 mins. This will give the disinfectant some time to dry and kill any Viruses or Bacteria on your phone.

Soapy warm water – Disinfect your iPhone

If you have soapy warm water and a cloth the process is the same again just apply some soapy warm water to your cloth and start wiping your device over. Again you should see that the phone is moist not wet and you should make sure you do the back and sides as well.

If you have lint or dust in the power, speaker, camera or ear piece ports you can very gently try to clean these with the SIM eject tool or a paper clip. Just be very careful not to touch or put any force on the inside of the ports. Very gently dislodge the lint or dust and then you can use a moist cotton tip to help remove the dust from the port.

The process is the same for your case. However, be careful when use alcohol wipes on your case, as some cases might not like the Alcohol wipes. I suggest just spot testing the alcohol wipes first in a part of the case you won’t see. If it works fine just wipe your case over the same way you did with your phone. With soapy warm water you should be fine to use it on your case. No issues there. Don’t forget you can use the SIM eject tool and cotton tips to get into the harder places. Once disinfected put your case down for 4 mins to dry.

Cover your phone with plastic sleve

The last idea I had might seem extreme. However, if you are working in an extreme environment like a health care worker, it might be helpful. If you are going into an area where you know there might be the potential for infection you could also try putting your phone in an airtight zip lock back. So disinfect your phone first. Once its dry pop it inside a zip lock back and seal it up. You can still use the device from inside the bag. Then when you leave the hospital or infected zone you can remove it from the bag. If you are in this situation, it might be a good idea to disinfect the device again after you remove the bag.

Setting up the XBOX Controller on Apple TV

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myIT, in this video we will show you how to Setup XBOX wireless controller on Apple TV, iPad or iPhone.

One of the new features with iOS 13 is that you can pair XBOX controllers with Apple TV, iPad and iPhone. This means you can use the XBOX controller to play games on Apple Arcade as well as iOS supported games.

All right let’s get started its pretty simple on your Apple TV go to Settings > Remotes and Devices.

Scroll down to Bluetooth. And under BlueTooth you will see other devices.

Next up grab your XBOX controller and put it in pairing mode. To do this Press the XBOX button to turn it on. Then press the connect button for 3 seconds or until the XBOX button starts to flash.

Let’s connect the XBOX controller to your iPad or iPhone. Go into Settings > BlueTooth. And just toggle on the BlueTooth switch. Again put your controller in Pairing mode. And tap your controller to connect it.

Awesome lets go test out some games. On Apple TV just go into Apple Arcade and sign in with your Apple ID. Its free for the first month. The game I have played most is one called OceanHorn2. The games on Apple Arcade are pretty basic at the moment so don’t expect to the blown away. But they are ok for a bit of fun. OceanHorn2 is a Adventure Role Play game.

Lets check out some games on the iPad or iPhone. Not all iOS games will work with the XBOX controller. But when you load a game that does it should tell you at the bottom of the screen.

The game I am playing now is called real racing 3. In real racing 3 you can change your views in the car and also look behind you. This iPhone 11 pro does a good job with the sound and games can be quite fun on a bigger iPad screen. If racing is not your thing there is loads of other games like fortnight and actually having a controller will give you some advantage over other mobile players as the controller is much easier to use. Sonic Racing game on Apple TV is also a bit of fun.

10 iPhone settings that you should turn off straight away

10 iPhone settings that you should turn off straight away

10 iPhone settings that you don’t need. Time to turn them off.

Hi guys and welcome to 123, this video I will show you ten iPhone settings that you should turn off straight away. Ok guys these settings I am about to show you will do two things save battery life and save you mobile data. So let us get started.

iPhone Analytics

  1. The first one you should turn off is iPhone analytics. IPhone Analytics sends data to Apple and could be a privacy issue as well. They use these analytics to see how you use your phone so they can improve their services. It also drains your battery life. So to turn it off go into Settings > Privacy > Analytics. Just toggle the button at the top. If you have an Apple watch, it will also turn off the analytics for your Apple watch. Again, this will give you more battery life on your Apple watch as well.

iCloud Analytics

  1. In addition, while you are in there turn off iCloud analytics, which is the same thing as iPhone Analytics accept for iCloud.
  2. Turn off Improve Siri & Dictation. This setting allows Apple to store and review the Audio from your Siri interactions. For me no thanks I want to keep that private.

Significant Locations

  • Next up turn off Significant Locations. Significant location tracks everywhere you go this also means it uses your GPS everywhere you go. This allows Apple to deliver targeted advertising to your phone.  To turn this off go to Settings > Privacy> Location services > you can toggle it off at the top. Otherwise if you want to see where you have been go to System Services > Significant Locations. You can turn it off in here plus see where you have been and clear history.
iPhone settings
System Services – Turn off services that you are not using.

System Services

  • Turn off everything in System services that are unnecessary. Turn off everything apart from Emergency calls and SOS, find my iPhone and share my location if you use that feature. If suddenly, something does not work come back in here and double check. Otherwise, turn them off. It will save you battery life and data.
  • While you are in there turn off everything in Product improvement. This allows Apple to use your location to improve maps. Just turn it off.

Limit Ad Tracking

  • Next, up you want turn on Limit Ad Tracking. This is one where the naming might be confusing. If you do not have this on then you are being tracked when you go to websites so that advertisers can advertise to you.  Turn this on under Privacy and Advertising. If you want to see information that is being used by Apple, tap the View Ad Information menu. Hit the Reset Advertising Identifier button and then toggle Limit Ad Tracking on.

Email accounts

  • Set your email accounts to fetch instead of Push. What this does is it only goes and gets your email when you open your email to look. Rather than wasting battery, life constantly checking for new email. You can also select how often you want to fetch your mail. Every 15 minutes might be suitable. Just remember the longer you leave this the better your battery life will be.
  • Turn off background app refresh. You can find this under iPhone Settings, General. This allows apps to download data in the background even where you are not using them. Turn these off for anything you are not using.
  • Raise to wake. Turn off save battery life. What this does is when your iPhone screen is blank it turns on when you raise it.
