How To Download And Install iOS11 Beta Version


If you are ready to jump on the iOS 11 train right now instead of waiting for its official release this fall, then you can get onboard today. Apple has released the iOS 11 public beta, which anyone with an Apple ID can install for free.
Before showing you how to do just that, I must start with a word of caution: as with any beta software, iOS 11 is not a finished product. There will be bugs and odd behaviors. Some of your apps might not work right. There may be some freezes and crashes along the way. Apple puts out betas of iOS to get feedback from users so it can iron out the kinks before releasing the final version. So, if you aren't up for the occasional hiccup, don't install it. If you must, it would be best to install it on an old iPad you have lying around rather than your iPhone that you rely on everyday. Don't be tempted to install the iOS 11 public beta on your primary device .
With that disclaimer out of the way, let's get into how you can update to the iOS 11.

Prepare your device

First, you will need to sign up for Apple's beta program, if you haven't already. You can sign up here. The process requires nothing more than your Apple ID and takes only a few minutes.
Next, back up your device. Seriously, do not skip this step. Take the time to create a backup of your device in case something goes sideways with your device and the beta -- you'll want a recent backup to return to. Apple recommends connecting it to iTunes and creating a local backup. Apple also suggests archiving the backup using iTunes. Doing so ensures that you have a good backup stored locally, instead of one floating around in iCloud. Follow Apple's instructions here.

Enroll your device

With your device freshly backed up, open Safari and head to Apple's public beta page. Sign in with your Apple ID and then tap the iOS tab. Scroll down and tap the enroll your iOS device link and then tap the Download profile button. Safari will ask to launch the Settings app and ask you to install the beta software profile. Tap Install, enter your passcode and then restart your device when asked.
download-profile-ios-beta

Download and install the public beta

After your device has restarted and the software profile has been installed, you can now install the iOS 11 beta. Open the Settings app and go to General > Software Update. Tap the Download and Install button if the beta doesn't automatically begin installing. After the download is complete, tap Install Now to install it. It'll take a bit of time to download and install, but then you'll be ready to discover the new features of iOS 11 .

And should you discover a bug with the beta, you can help Apple polish the final version of iOS 11 by reporting any odd behaviors and crashes using the new Feedback Assistant app that gets installed along with the beta. Look for its purple icon.

Common iPhone Battery Problems And How To Fix Them

Is your iPhone slowing down with age? Or, in the case of its battery life, speeding up? One of the first signs of age on an iPhone is the battery not holding a charge as long as it once did. Of course, you might also experience odd battery behavior on a relatively new iPhone, where the battery conks out before the meter hits zero.
Here are three common battery problems -- short battery life, shutting off unexpectedly, getting warm while charging -- and how to fix them.

My battery dies quickly

There could be any number of reasons for why your iPhone's battery is draining quicker than usual, but the first place to start your investigation is Settings > Battery. Under Battery Usage, you can peruse a list of your apps and see how much battery each has consumed in the past 24 hours or seven days. If you can live without a battery-hungry app, then delete it.
Before deleting an app, make sure you read the fine print and see if underneath its name in the above list, you see Background Activity or Background Location listed. An app might be eating more than its fair share of battery resources because it's continually updating in the background or constantly requesting your location. For the former, go to Settings > General > Background App Refresh and you can disable it altogether or for individual apps. For the latter, head to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and, again, you can disable it globally or just for apps that are overusing the feature.

I've also read that people have experienced better battery life by turning off "Hey Siri" because it means your iPhone isn't always listening, waiting to spring into action when you utter those two magic words. To disable this feature, go to Settings > Siri and toggle off Allow "Hey Siri."

Sudden shutdowns

This one is harder to pin down, where your iPhone dies before the battery meter hits zero. I've read advice about calibrating your iPhone's battery by letting it drain all the way down and then charging it back to 100 percent, but I've never found calibration to do me any good. Instead, I suggest you follow this three-step process to address an iPhone that shuts down suddenly:

1. Check for a software update

Perhaps there's a new version of iOS that will play nicer with your iPhone and its battery. Go to Settings > General > Software Update to see if an update is available.

2. Restore from backup or factory reset

If you are running the latest version of iOS, then you might need to hit the reset button and start fresh. You can try restoring your iPhone to a recent backup you've made in iTunes or iCloud. If that doesn't do the trick, then you might need to perform a factory reset. It's a pain to get your phone set back up the way you like it, but at least your app purchases are available in the App Store so you can reinstall them for free. To perform a factory reset, go to Settings > General > Reset and then tap Erase All Content and Settings.

3. Head to a Genius Bar

If your battery problems persist past a factory reset, then it might be time to visit your local Genius Bar or mail your phone in for repair. Apple can then run its diagnostics to see if there is a hardware issue with your phone. You can read about Apple's battery warranty and start a repair request here.
Personally, extreme temperature is often to blame for my iPhone shutting down seemingly at random. I live in New Hampshire, where winters are very cold and summers can get very hot. When I'm skiing or just out walking the dog on a particularly cold day in January, my iPhone will occasionally shut down. Same thing if I leave it in the direct sun in August. Apple recommends you keep your iPhone between 32 degree and 95 degree Fahrenheit, with 62 to 72 degrees being the ideal comfort zone.

My phone gets hot when charging

That off-brand charger you picked up at CVS or Duane Reade? It might have cost a fraction of what you'd pay Apple for a replacement charger, and it might also come in a fun color other than white. But if your iPhone heats up to a worrisome degree when it's plugged into your cheap charger, then it's time to locate the charger that came with your iPhone or find a suitable replacement. You don't necessarily need to buy from Apple, but Apple recommends you use only certified third-party accessories that have the Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod logo on their packaging.

How To Free Up PC Spcae Without Needing Additional Apps

Face it: No matter how large your hard drive is -- how many empty terabytes you had when you first bought your PC -- you always seem to fill it right to the brink.
If you're bumping up against your PC's physical storage limit, there are some quick tricks you can use to reclaim a couple of gigs. But these options will only take you so far -- if you need a lot of space, you may need to upgrade your hardware or consider deleting a few of those raw image files.

Empty the Recycle Bin


When you delete items, like files and photos, from your PC, they don't immediately get deleted. Instead, they sit in the Recycle Bin and continue to take up valuable hard-drive space. To empty the Recycle Bin, go to your desktop, right-click on the Recycle Bin and click Empty Recycle Bin. You will see a warning pop-up asking if you are sure you want to permanently delete your Recycle Bin items. Click Yes to proceed.

Disk Cleanup

Windows has a built-in disk cleanup utility (aptly named Disk Cleanup) that can help you clear up space by removing various files -- including temporary internet files, system error memory dump files, and even previous Windows installations that may still be hanging out from your recent move to Windows 10.
disk-cleanup.png

You can find Disk Cleanup in the Start menu, under All apps > Windows Administrative Tools > Disk Cleanup. Select the drive you want to clean up and hit OK, then wait while Disk Cleanup calculates how much space you can free up. If you want to delete system files, such as the Windows.old folder (which holds your previous installations of Windows, and can be several GB in size), click Cleanup system files.

Delete temporary and downloaded files

You can delete temporary files without running Disk Cleanup, along with files you downloaded that you may no longer need. Go to Settings > System and click on Storage on the left panel. Next, click This PC at the top and then click Temporary files from the list. Check the boxes for Temporary files and Downloads folder (and Empty recycle bin while you're at it) and then click the Remove files button.
remove-temp-files

Turn on Storage Sense

If you have updated to Windows 10 Creators Update, then let Windows help out with freeing up disk space. Head back to the Storage page in Settings and toggle on Storage sense. Now, Windows will automatically delete unused temporary files, as well as files that have been in the Recycle Bin for more than 30 days. I'm pretty good with emptying the Recycle Bin on something approaching a regular schedule, but I'm also very happy to have Windows track down and eradicate needless temp files.
storage-sense

Save files to a different drive

If your computer has multiple hard drives or a partitioned hard drive, you may find yourself running out of space on one drive (or partition). Luckily, you can fix this by changing your default save locations for apps, documents, music, pictures, and videos. To do this, open the Settings menu and go to System > Storage. Under Save locations, select a different drive for each of the categories. You can select any drive -- even a removable drive, like a USB flash drive or a memory card -- that is connected to your PC.
save-files-to-a-different-drive.png

Disable hibernate

Instead of shutting down your computer completely, you can put it in hibernate -- a quasi-shutdown state that allows you to startup faster. When your computer goes into hibernate, it saves a snapshot of your files and drivers before shutting down, and this takes up space. If starting up quickly isn't your priority, you can reclaim some valuable hard drive space by disabling hibernate altogether, because the hiberfil.sys file takes up 75 percent of your PC's installed RAM. This means that if you have 8GB of RAM, you can clear up 6GB instantly by disabling hibernate.
Here's our complete guide on disabling (or re-enabling) hibernate in Windows 10. One caveat: If you disable hibernate, you will not be able to use Windows 10's fast startup feature.

Uninstall apps

You probably have some apps and programs on your PC that you don't use -- either apps you've installed and forgotten about, or bloatware that came preinstalled on your computer from the manufacturer. To find out which apps are taking up space, open the Settings menu and go to System > Apps & features and choose Sort by size. To uninstall an app from this menu, click the app and then click Uninstall.
uninstall-apps-1.png

If you're running legacy programs on Windows 10, you may not see them in this list (some appear, but some do not). To find these programs, right-click the Start button and click Control Panel. Go to Programs and Features to see a list of the legacy programs on your computer (you can also sort this list by program size). To uninstall a program from this list, left-click it to select it and click Uninstall.
uninstall-apps-2.png

Windows 10's default apps -- like the Maps app, OneNote app, and Photos app -- don't take up a lot of space, but they do take up some space. Check out our guide on how to uninstall default apps here.

Store files in the cloud -- and only in the cloud

If you take advantage of cloud storage via OneDrive or another service, you're probably double-storing files and photos. Well, you don't have to do this -- all cloud storage services allow you to select which folders are actually downloaded and saved to your PC (as well as in the cloud).
store-files-in-the-cloud.png

Right-click on the OneDrive icon in your system tray and choose Settings. In the Account tab, next to Choose folders to sync to this device, click Choose folders. Select the folders you want to sync (read: save directly) to your device, and deselect any folders you do not want to sync to your device. When you're finished selecting or deselecting folders, click OK. The folders you did not select to sync to your device will be removed from your hard drive, freeing up space. You will still be able to access the files in these folders from the OneDrive site in any Web browser; they just won't be saved on your hard drive.

The Way To Create Spotify Group PlayList On Facebook Messanger

Whether you're planning to spend countless hours in a car with your friends or have people over for a cookout, creating a playlist full of songs everyone can enjoy can be a stressful process. With Spotify's newest feature, however, making a playlist can become a collaborative effort.
It's called Group Playlists for Messenger and it lets users create Spotify playlists right from within Facebook Messenger , and your friends don't even need to be on Spotify to pitch in.
Here's how it works.

How to create a Spotify group playlist in Facebook Messenger


For starters, you don't need Facebook Messenger to create a group playlist in Spotify. Collaborative playlists have been a feature of Spotify for quite some time.
You can even turn an existing playlist into a collaborative playlist by viewing it from the web or app, clicking the options button (three horizontal dots) and clicking Collaborative Playlist. Repeat those same steps to remove the option for other people to help build the playlist.
spotify

That said, building a playlist within an existing Facebook Messenger conversation or group removes a lot of the friction and feels like a very intuitive place to have such a feature.
To create a group playlist:
  • Open the Facebook Messenger app on Android or iOS.
  • Select a conversation or group with whom you want to create a playlist.
  • Tap the plus sign to the left of the text input field in the lower left corner of the app.
  • Select Spotify under Extensions.
  • Tap Create Group Playlist, give it a name and tap OK.
  • Tap Send to [friend's name] or Send to Group.
  • Click Add A Song.
  • Select a song from the given recommendations or search for a song by title.
  • Click OK and repeat until you and your friend are satisfied with the playlist (never).
While the Spotify card will appear in Facebook Messenger from the web, you will not be able to add songs. For now, it only works within the mobile apps.
Like playlists created within Spotify, group playlists created within Facebook Messenger can be made into non-collaborative playlists.

How To Use Samsung Galaxy S8 Assistant Bixby - Full Tutorial

Bixby is a powerful tool, but not the most intuitive one we've encountered. Here's how to set up and use every feature of Samsung's digital assistant, and what to expect in the future.
Update: We've added a link to the preview page for Bixby Voice users in the U.S.
Samsung's Bixby assistant was supposed to be one of the Galaxy S8's biggest selling points. Bixby, Samsung's take on smartphone assistants like Siri and the Google Assistant, uses artificial intelligence to anticipate your needs and serve up contextualized reminders. It'll edit photos, send messages, and compose emails on command. Eventually, it'll control smart home appliances and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
But right now, Bixby is a bit of a disappointment. Much of its promised functionality is pegged for a late summer release, and third-party app integrations could take even longer. But it's not dead on arrival. It may not be as capable as Google Assistant or Siri, but it has more than a few useful tricks up its sleeve.
Here's how to set up Bixby, and how to get the most out of it.
Getting started with Bixby and Bixby Voice
Accessing Bixby couldn't be easier. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus feature a dedicated Bixby button on the right side, just below the volume rocker. Tapping on it brings up Bixby Home, the assistant's hub and setup screen.
If you're on the Galaxy S8's home screen, you can access Bixby by swiping to the right.
Enabling Bixby Voice is a bit trickier — for Galaxy S8 owners based in the U.S., it's available in preview. You can sign up by visiting Samsung's website, and once you've enrolled, you'll receive a prompt on your phone to enable Bixby Voice.
When you call up Bixby for the first time, you'll be asked to agree to the terms of service — and to grant it access your data. Hit Agree to all (after reading the terms), and then choose Allow when prompted to grant Bixby permissions.
To access the Settings screen, tap the gear icon in the upper-right-hand corner of Bixby Home, and then hit Settings in the drop-down menu. You'll see options for Bixby Home cards, a list of supported apps, and more.
There's more to Bixby than a single app or screen. Rather, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus ship with three incarnations of Samsung's Assistant: Bixby Home, Bixby Vision, and Bixby Voice.
Bixby Voice
Bixby Voice, Bixby's third pillar, is like Siri on steroids.
It hasn't launched in earnest, yet, but it's available in beta for select Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus owners in the U.S. You can sign up by visiting Samsung's preview page.
To ensure that the update goes off without a hitch, make sure you're running the latest version of Bixby by heading to the About page from the Bixby Home menu. You might have to clear the data and cache for Bixby apps by opening the Galaxy S8's Settings screen and navigating to the management menu.
Once you've installed the necessary software and completed Samsung's Bixby Voice tutorial, you're free to invoke the voice assistant at your leisure. You can activate it by saying, “Hey Bixby,” or by holding down the Bixby button while you talk.
Right now, Bixby can perform tasks like sending text messages via the Galaxy S8's Mesages app and responding to basic questions about the weather, upcoming meetings, sports scores, and movie showtimes. But that's just the tip of the iceberg — the voice assistant works across apps like the Galaxy S8's dialer, settings menus, camera app, contacts list, and Gallery, and takes on most multi-step tasks you dictate to it.
Bixby can handle complicated tasks like opening an app in split-screen view, rotating misaligned photos, reminding you where you parked, playing videos on a nearby TV, and composing emails. It can gather all the photos you took last week into a new album labeled “Vacation” and share it with your friends, or take a selfie and text it to someone. And it can perform two-step actions like, “Open Uber and rate my driver 5 stars,” and, “Open Instagram and post my most recent photo.”
“Instead of taking multiple steps to make a call — turning on and unblocking the phone, looking for the phone application, clicking on the contact bar to search for the person that you're trying to call, and pressing the phone icon to start dialing — you will be able to do all of these steps with one push of the Bixby button,” Injong Rhee, Samsung's executive vice president, told Digital Trends.
Bixby Voice is customizable, too — it'll lower the volume when you hold the Galaxy S8 to your ear, and change the gender of the assistant on the fly. And it supports shortcuts — you can shorten the lengthy commands you use most often to a single word or phrase, if you so choose.
Samsung says Bixby supports more than 3,000 commands, including app-specific commands in Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Uber, Gmail, Google Maps, and more. And it says that more will come when it exits beta later this year.
Bixby Home
Samsung calls Bixby Home a “social stream for your device,” and that's more or less accurate. It's a unified card-like interface of reminders, contextually relevant information, and social media updates — sort of like a cross between Google Now and HTC's BlinkFeed.
Bixby Home can be customized to a degree. You can dismiss, pin, or permanently hide cards by tapping the gear icon in the upper-right corner of an individual Bixby Home tab.
Samsung's default apps supply most of Bixby Home's content. You'll see a local weather forecast, activity stats from Samsung's Health app, and local files in the Galaxy S8's Music app.
But the list of third-party services that support Bixby Home is growing, albeit slowly. A Spotify card provides one-tap access to your playlists and music. CNN and Flipboard show trending news stories from around the web. Facebook, Foursquare, and Twitter show the latest updates from your social circles. And soon, Uber will show your recent rides.
Eventually, Samsung says Bixby Home will be able to learn from your routine and update to reflect how you use your phone throughout the day. A future iteration will serve up buttons that'll control smart light bulbs and door locks, shortcuts to the apps you use most frequently, and more — all based on the time of day, your location, and other factors.
Bixby Vision
Bixby Vision taps machine learning (and Pinterest's Lens Tool) to identify the objects around it. Much like Google Goggles or Amazon's Flow, Bixby Vision tries to suss out whatever's in front of the Galaxy S8's camera, and serve up information depending on what it finds.
You launch it by tapping the Bixby button in the Galaxy S8's camera app, Bixby Home, or the Gallery app.
Right now, Bixby Vision recognizes four categories of objects: Place, Text, Image, and Shopping.
Bixby Vision is surprisingly capable, if a little finicky. It'll identify landmarks like the Empire State building and suggest nearby places of interest, for example. If you point at a bag of Twizzlers, it'll recommend similar candy from one of the supported online stores. If you point it at a bottle of wine, it'll offer details on the label. It'll automatically parse QR codes and barcodes, books, and logos, and you can use it to translate text.
It'll only get better with time. Samsung says it's working with partners including Amazon, Vivino, Pinterest, and others to improve the relevancy of Bixby Vision's search results.
Reminders
Bixby's Reminders is a little more robust than the reminders you can create with Siri or the Google Assistant. It's built into the Galaxy S8's native apps, and lets you attach media like videos, websites, photos, messages.
You can set a specific time you'd like to see a reminder, or even a specific location. When the conditions are met, said reminder will appear in the form of a notification you can dismiss, snooze, or check off.
Bixby beyond
Eventually, Samsung expects Bixby to make its way into other platforms.
Samsung sees Bixby in television remote controls, smart refrigerators, and even washing machines. It plans to make the assistant compatible with future Samsung Connect smart home product lines, and it's working on bringing Bixby to its Gear line of smartwatches.
It'll probably be some time before Bixby escapes the confines of the Galaxy S8, but rest assured Samsung is hard at work on its expansion.

Facebook Is Preparing A Feature To Prevent Profile Picture Abuse


Facebook is introducing a new feature to give users peace of mind around how their profile photo can be used and accessed by others.

The social network today announced a pilot program in India that is designed to protect users who are concerned about other people gaining access to their profile image. The new 'photo guard' feature has a range of safety measures that include:

  • Preventing other users from downloading a person's profile pic, or sharing it with others
  • Preventing other users from tagging other people in a person's profile pic
  • Preventing other users from taking screenshots of a person's profile pic -- although this is initially for the Android app only

When activated, the optional guard is visible through a blue border and shield around a user's profile pic. The company partnered with an Indian illustrator to make these safety controls more compelling with attractively designed options.

The new feature is driven by research that the company undertook in India. In a blogpost, Facebook explained that it found that "some women choose not to share profile pictures that include their faces anywhere on the internet because they're concerned about what may happen to their photos."

It believes this solution may go some way to helping, and it said that early tests indicate that people are 75 percent less likely to copy a photo when the guard option is enabled.

This rollout is initially happening in India, but Facebook said it hopes to expand it to other countries "soon."

Samsung Galaxy S8 Vs OnePlus 5 Charge Test

OnePlus really wants to make the case that its Dash Charge technology will offer OnePlus 5 buyers a much faster charging experience than its biggest rival, the Samsung Galaxy S8. The company posted two videos that show both the OnePlus 5 and the Galaxy S8 in all-out battery charge battles.

OnePlus 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S8: quick look1 day ago
The first video shows the OnePlus 5, with its 3,300 mAh battery, in a typical charging scenario against the Galaxy S8, which has a smaller 3,000 mAh battery. The video shows that after about 15 minutes, the OnePlus 5's battery has a 29-percent charge compared to just 20 percent for the Galaxy S8. After just over 30 minutes, the OnePlus 5 went up to a 58-percent battery charge, compared to 39 percent for the Galaxy S8.
The battery charge difference is even more pronounced for these two phones when they are shown connected to a car. The second video shows that after about 30 minutes of driving around, the OnePlus 5 has 43 percent of its battery capacity ready to go, while the Samsung Galaxy S8 has a mere 12 percent battery charge in the same amount of time.
After just over 30 minutes, the OnePlus 5 went up to a 58 percent battery charge, compared to 39 percent for the Galaxy S8.
The company first introduced its Dash Charge battery technology in 2016 with the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. It says that, unlike other solutions that increase the voltage when a phone is connected to a power source, Dash Charge increases the amps. This not only results in a faster charging time, but it also generates less heat than other fast charging methods. It does require that the OnePlus 5 use a proprietary adapter and cable, however.
In our own review of the phone, we found that the OnePlus 5 charged up to as high as 60 percent of its battery capacity in just 30 minutes. It also only took about 1 hour and 20 minutes to charge up to its full capacity. Stay tuned as we will have a more detailed review centering on the battery technology inside the OnePlus 5 in the near future.
