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.

Forgotten Passcode on iPad?

Hi guys and welcome to 123, in this video I will show you how to remove the passcode from iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. This is helpful if you have Forgotten Passcode on iPad, iPhone or iPod.

Ok guys so have completely forgotten your passcode and you need to remove it from your device. How painful it can be to have Forgotten Passcode on iPad, iPhone or iPod? Apple recommends two ways to remove your passcode. However, this will erase any data on your iPad, iPhone or iPod so I recommend trying to remember you passcode first. Because If you have backed up your device via iCloud or iTunes then you will be able to restore your data and settings after restoring your device.

Check iCloud first

Alright the first way to remove the passcode is if you have added your iPad, iPhone or iPod to iCloud backup and find my iPhone. Once you are on the iCloud.com page login with your Apple ID.

And then click on find iPhone. Click on All devices at the top and you should see your iPad, iPhone or iPod that you want to restore. If you don’t see your device there then you will have to fast forward the video to the second option of restoring your device.

Forgotten Passcode on iPad
Erase your device with iCloud if you have it added to iCloud.

Here I have my iPhone 11 Pro and I will click Erase iPhone. This will restore your iPad, iPhone or IPod back to factory defaults. But remember that this will also erase any data on the device so be sure you want to do this. Next up enter your Apple ID and password and enter your secret questions. On the Erase iPhone menu click Next and then Done. And you will a message that states your erase has started.

Setup your device as new

Ok go a head now and start setting up your device again from scratch. Your passcode will be gone now. If your get activation lock you can enter your Apple ID or click the remove from account button in iCloud then go back on your device and the activation lock won’t come up once you have removed the account from iCloud. If you cant get past activation lock. You will need to take your device to Apple with proof of purchase. Follow the prompts to setup your iPad, iPhone or iPod. Your Passcode is now gone.

And there you have it you have removed you passcode.

If you haven’t Added your iPad, iPhone or iPod to iCloud then you will need to restore your device via iTunes. So you will need a computer with iTunes.

Recovery Mode

You will need to put your device into recovery mode and here’s how to do it for the different models. So for my iPhone 11 I just hold down the side button and plug it into my computer. Once done correctly you should see the restore screen.

But on your computer you iTunes should come up with a restore option. Click Restore and then Restore and update. Click next on software update.

In the top right hand corner of iTunes you should see the software start to download the new iOS for your iPad, iPhone or iPod. If you are using Mac OS Catalina the process is the same.  Click on Go and then computer.  Find your iPad, iPhone or iPod. Click ok and then hit restore. Again click restore and update. Click Next and Agree and your software will start to download.

Slow Internet?

If you are on a slow internet connection, your device might restart itself and you will have to put it back in Restore mode again. So once the download has finished it will extract and start to restore your iPad, iPhone or iPod.

You should now see a message that your device has been restored. However your device will restart itself and your passcode will be gone. Just go ahead and setup your device again. Congratulations you now have removed your passcode.

iPhone Battery Drain – Is your iPhone letting you down?

If you having issues with yor iPhone it could caused by problems with your Battery.
iPhone battery drain Issues you might experience are:

  • Apps are slow to launch
  • Slow frame rates while scrolling
  • Backlight dimming
  • Lower speaker volume
  • Gradual frame rate reductions in some apps
  • Camera flash disabled
  • Apps refreshing in background may require reloading upon launch

If you are having these issues mentioned the next step is to check your battery health and you can do that by going into Settings, Battery, Battery Health.

iPhone battery drain
iPhone Battery Drain – Battery Health

The first thing you need to look at is the Maximum Capacity %. As you can see here on my older iPhone 7 the Maximum Capacity 75%. Well what does that mean?If you compare that with my iPhone 8 which has Maximum Capacity of 100%. It means that every time I charge my iPhone 7 I am only getting a 75% charge of the battery.

iPhone Battery Drain – Check your Maximum Capacity.

So guys go ahead and check what the Maximum Capacity % is on your iPhone right now what number is it set too? I would be interested in knowing. So if my brand new iPhone use to give me 10 hours of battery life on a full charge and I am missing 25% I only get 7.5 hours now instead of 10 hours I use to get.

What do the other messages mean?

Under Peak Performance you will get a series of other messages and they mean different things. The first one is Performance is normal which means just that its normal. Nothing to worry about. The second one is Performance management applied. This means your iPhone shutdown because it couldn’t handle the power needed to perform a function. This management should stop the iPhone from crashing in the future.

The Battery Health unknown message – means that the iPhone can’t talk to the battery for some reason. Could be due to a hardware fault. If you get this take your iPhone into Apple.

Performance management turned off – if you get this message you have turned the Performance management off and your iPhone has crashed. The iPhone will turn this feature back on to stop future shutdowns.

Battery health degraded – This is the error I was getting on my iPhone 7. This means the battery is not as good as it was and it will need replacing to improve the performance and battery life.

Important Battery Message –
This error only Applies to the iPhone X series. It means that the iPhone can’t verify if the battery is genuine. This might be helpful to check if you are buying the iPhone second hand. Otherwise you can take the iPhone to a Apple Authorized service provider.
