How to Arrange your iPhone icons the Easy Way!

Hi Guys and Matt from 123myit here. I am always amazed when how to do something a new way on computers or phones. Sometimes you do not even realise that there is a new way to do something until someone else shows you and you realise you have been doing it the hard way for a while.

What to do first – Arrange your iPhone icons

Take arranging your icons on your iPhone for example. Normally I would tap and drag th icons around but there is an easier way. Let me show you. If you tap your icon and hold it. I would normally drag this around but what you can do is tap the other icons that you want to arrange this icon with.

So if I grab my Calendar, Photos, Camera and Wallet. It will reorganise them in that same order that I selected. OK I will do it again. This time I want to put all my icons on the bottom row so can reach them easy. So I will tap my wallet, photos, camera and facetime. Cool so there is my wallet, photos, camera and facetime all on the easy to reach bottom row.

Here’s another one. To move an icon to a different screen I used to tap and do an awkward icon drag to one of the other screens. But what you can actually do it Tap and hold the icon and then just use your other hand to switch screens……. Oh so much easier haha.

The idea is, let’s say you have a friend coming around to your house but don’t always hear the knock at the door. You could put your iPhone or iPad near the door and when they knock you would be notified on your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch.

Once you turn on Sound Recognition for the first time. You can access it quickly from the Control Panel. So swipe down from the top on your device and then Tap to turn it on or off.

8 iPhone Settings You Need To Turn Off In 2021

Apple iPad 8th Gen 2020

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the Apple iPad 8th Gen 2020 in four minutes. Apple has released two different versions of the iPad and iPad Air. Pricing for the base model iPad starts around $329 USD and it comes in three different colours, Silver, Gold and Space Grey.

First up in the box you will find the iPad 8th Gen and the colour that we have is Space Grey. Next you get the documentation, Quick start guide, Warranty information and Apple stickers. Other accessories are USB C to lighting cable and a 20 watt USB C charging adapter. Twenty watts should charge the battery from empty to 50% in thirty minutes. Don’t quote me on that because it was hard to find any exact data on this. However Apple says you should get Up to 10 hours of surfing the web on Wi-Fi or watching video and 9 hours on Cellular models.

Display 10.2-inch

The 2020 iPad has a 10.2-inch LED-backlit Multi-Touch Retina Display with IPS technology. It has a 2160 by 1620-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch. And the display also has 500 nits of brightness which is fine. Here’s the viewing angels and stereo speaker test.

The display is also not laminated this means it has a small pocket of air between the LED display and the glass surface. This might make the touch feel a little less sensitive. But Unless you are use to an older iPad you might not even notice.

iPad 8th Gen
Slight gap on the display which might make the touch less sensitive.

In terms of size this iPad is thicker than all previous models going back to the iPad Air 1. And you do notice this. Does it really matter though? Probably not.

Space for a Keyboard – iPad 8th Gen

On the bottom, you have 3 little dots which allows you to attach an Apple keyboard. However they are expensive and not that great to type on so you might be better off with a Logitech keyboard and I will leave an Amazon link in the description.

Around the back of the iPad we have the space grey finish with colour matched apple logo.

At the back of top we have an 8 megapixel camera with a f2.4 aperture and beside that one of the dual microphone pin holes. On the top right side you have Sleep Wake power button. Along with that the another microphone pin hole and headphone jack. Down the right side you have the volume up and down buttons. On the bottom you have a lighting port and stereo speakers.

Around the hardware

On the front bottom you have the all familiar Home button and it comes with finger print unlock. There is no face unlock on this model.

The top you have a 1.2 mega pixel FaceTime HD Camera with a f2.4 aperture. Not super outstanding but it does the job.

The biggest upgrade for the iPad 2020 is that it includes the A12 Bionic processor which is a 64-bit chip. A fast processor is important when playing games and videos or when generally moving around the iPad.

And for those that are interested in the Geek Bench 4 scores here is the single and multi core scores and compassion.

The Apple iPad 8th gen is a stock standard iPad with a fast processor. And would be perfect for most people. If you are doing design work however you might want to look at the iPad Pro model instead.
