Tap on create new command.

Hi Guys and welcome to 123, in this video I will show you how to Turn on Voice Control on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Voice Control allows you to control your iOS devices using just your voice. This is helpful if you have your hand full or have limited mobility.
To turn on voice control go into Settings > Accessibility and Voice control.
Next, Tap on Set Up Voice Control. Voice control might need a small download when setting up, but after that, It doesn’t need an internet connection. Tap continue. In addition, it gives you a short list of commands. So we will go through these in a second. First, I want to show you how you can turn Voice Commands off and on using Siri.
Try some Commands
Ok let try some commands. When Voice Control is turned on
you will see a blue microphone in the top left of the screen.
If you want to go to the home screen, say Go Home. Swipe
Left to swipe left. If you get stuck for commands simply say. If you want to
check out control centre, say Open Control Centre.
Awesome if you want to see other commands you can use just
say, Show Commands. Ok lets take some
pictures. Open camera. If you want to know,
the names of the settings to use say Show names. In addition, to take a picture
just say, Tap Take Picture.
Moreover, if you want to Zoom in just say Show Names to find
the Name. Then Tap Zoom. If you want to lock your screen just say Lock Screen.
Some other commands are, Take screen shot. Turn on Smart invert colours.
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.
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.
In addition, while you are in there turn off iCloud analytics, which is the same thing as iPhone Analytics accept for iCloud.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit. This video will show you how to transfer data from your old Phone to your new Phone.
Start the Transfer – Old iPhone to New iPhone
If you have a new Phone you can transfer data by turning it on and placing it beside your old Phone. You should see the Quick Start screen appear on your old Phone. On your old Phone make sure you are logged in with your Apple ID and check that your iOS is 11 or later. Next you should see an animation appear on your new Phone scan it with the rear camera on your old iPhone. If you get prompted for a passcode enter your old iPhone passcode on your new Phone. I didn’t have a passcode on my old Phone so its gone into the activate step.
Also If you didn’t get the Quick Start screen try restarting your old Phone and make sure you have the WIFI turned on.
Follow the steps to setup Face ID or Touch ID on your new Phone. I am going to set mine up later. Awesome you have made it this far! Hit continue to Start the transfer between your iPhones. This will take a while so now is a good time to plug your iPhones into power.
Logon to your Apple ID account
Next up enter you Apple ID password.
Agree to the terms and conditions. And then follow the next few setup prompts.
Awesome your iPhones are starting to transfer data. Depending on how much data you have this could take some time.
Your Phone will restart and you should see the Restore completed message. Hit continue. Again follow the prompts to setup your new Phone.
Ok you should be all done now. check your new Phone and make sure all your data is there. I am going to check that my pictures have copied across.

Erase passcode on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iCloud
This video will show you how to erase passcode on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch by erasing your device with iCloud. This is helpful if you have forgotten your passcode or don’t know what it is.
This video if only for people that have attached their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to an iCloud account. If you have not setup your device with an iCloud account then you would need to look at the other video on this website the erase passcode with iTunes account here.
To erase passcode with iTunes click here.
To erase passcode with Recovery mode click here.
This video will show you how to remove your forgotten passcode on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This is helpful if you have forgotten your passcode or don’t know what it is.
Have you ever forgotten passcode before on your iPad? or has a family member added a passcode and then forgotten the passcode?
My first advice or words of wisdom would be to try and remember the original passcode first. If you still can’t remember the passcode then this video will show you how to remove the passcode from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The drawback to this is that you will lose any data on your device so it’s essential that you backup your device at all times. You can backup the device either through iTunes or iCloud.
Ok so the next step is to plug in your device into the computer that you synced the device with. Make sure this is the same computer that you sync the device with iTunes. If you get a passcode message this means you have plugged the device into the wrong computer. So try a different computer in your household.
If you have plugged the device into the correct computer in your iTunes there you should have a button which says restore iPad. To erase the iPad and get rid of the passcode you click the restore iPad button and you will see another window pop-up which says restore so go ahead and click restore. The iTunes will go ahead and download the iOS software which it will then restore on your iPad and this step will remove the passcode from your iPad. Make sure that your computer is connected to the internet because iTunes will download this software from apple.
Once the download has completed iTunes will extract the software to your iPad and then your iPad will restart and the passcode will be removed.
As mentioned in the video above I went to reload the firmware on an iPad mini and iTunes started downloading Apple newly updated iOS 8.
The supported models for the iPhone start at the iPhone 4S and up. The iPad 2’s and up and the iPod 5th generation only.
You can find the direct links for iOS 8 on the links below.
Also before you upgrade you should try and save your signed shsh blobs file. This will allow you to downgrade back to iOS 7 is you so wish.
If you want to check out the Office Apple iOS 8 page you can find it here.
