Backing up iPhone via iTunes

Nowadays all our digital life is stored on our smartphone. PhotosContactsCredit Card information, Online Banking details represent vital information that we use day by day. Some data is available only on the iPhone without having it written down physically. For example, when you save a new contact, you don’t also write it down in your physical agenda, because that’s time consuming.

 

So, having a backup of all the digital data stored on your iPhone is mandatory. This helps, in the worst case scenario, that you lose or destroy your iOS device. With a backup available, you have a way to recover your data and upload it on a new iPhone. Backups can be done via iTunes or iCloud. The difference is the iTunes ones are saved on the computer used for backing up, while the iCloud ones are stored on the cloud and available for download from anywhere an Internet connection is found.

How To Backup iPhone Via iTunes
Saving a copy of your iOS device and storing it on your computer is a rapid and easy process. Here is what you have to do:

iPhone 11 experiencing Camera black screen problem

iPhone 11 experiencing Camera black screen problem.

Your iPhone can do a lot of things, but one of the most popular one is its ability to take spectacular photos and videos. If you’re an average user you don’t even need a dedicate photo camera anymore. The iPhone, as well as the entire smartphone industry has benefited from huge tech-leaps, that now allow users to easily and quickly snap all important moments in their lives.

However, nothing is perfect in this world, and neither your iPhone. In rare cases, it can happen that you want to shoot a photo or record a video, but the Camera app malfunctions and displays a black screen instead of the viewfinder! The iPhone’s camera can act like frozen, stuck, out of focus and unresponsive. If that’s the problem that you’re dealing with, don’t panic! You’re not the first one. This issue has already occurred to many others, including us. Read on and you’ll learn how to fix it!

5 Tips To Fix The Black Screen iPhone Camera Problem
In most cases this issue is caused by a software glitch. That’s probably your case too. If your iPhone’s camera would experience a hardware problem, iOS would be able to detect it an display a warning message on the screen. Let’s see how to fix the iOS Camera black screen:
how to switch between iPhone front and rear camera1. Switch Between Cameras
The first fix that you can apply is to tap the flip-camera icon, available in the bottom-right corner of the screen (when holding the device in portrait view).
In some cases, the front-facing camera fails to activate and could output a black screen in the process. However, if you switch to the rear facing camera the viewfinder might start to display properly.
If that’s the case, you can switch again and check if the selfie-cam is working normally again.

how to close Camera app on iPhone2. Close / Reopen Camera App
If you have lots of processes ongoing on your iPhone and open the Camera app with a sudden gesture, it might happen that the software doesn’t boot up properly. This will cause the viewfinder to display a black screen. To fix it you will have to force close the Camera app and reopen it.
How to: Swipe-up from the bottom of the screen to bring up the iOS App Switcher.
Fact: For owners of iPhones with a Home button, you have to double-click it, to bring unveil the App Switcher.
-> Slide-up the card with the Camera app. This has closed the software for good.
-> Now, go back to the Home screen and tap on the Camera icon to reopen it.

how to initiate FaceTime call3. Try To FaceTime
If you performed the two steps listed above an the Camera is still showing a black screen you can try to use the Camera via a different app. Video calling is a good option. Your first choice should be an iOS stock app, FaceTime. Open the app and pick a close contact that you can use for debugging your device’s camera. Initiate the call and see if the Camera unfreezes.
How to: Open FaceTime -> pick an entry from the Recent Calls list or tap the “+” icon available in the top-right corner of the screen to search for a contact. -> Initiate FaceTime call.
Fact: Other video calling apps available are SkypeWhatsAppZoom, but we’ve received positive results with FaceTime for iOS.

how to power off iPhone 114. Restart iPhone
In some cases step 3 is the winner, but in others you’ll manage to have a successful FaceTime video call and as soon as you hang up and open the Camera app you get the black screen again! In this case your next option is to power your iPhone off and turn it back on, with the hope that a reboot should fix this glitch.
How to: Press & hold the Side Button and the Volume Up button of your iPhone until the “slide to power off” screen is displayed on your device -> Perform the slide to the right and turn of your iPhone. -> Wait for a few moments before you press & hold the Side Button again. This time until the Apple logo flashes on your screen. -> Release and wait until the iPhone boots up. -> Provide your Passcode and check if the camera is back functional!
Fact: iPhone users with a Home button just have to press & hold the Sleep/Wake button to reach the shutdown screen!

how to disable iphone voice-over feature5. Disable Voice-Over
Most of the camera black screen problems should be solved by now. If your iPhone still refuses to open the Camera app properly there is one more trick that you can apply. The iOS Voice-Over feature is sometimes a trigger for this glitch. Let’s check if it’s active on your device:
How To: Open the Settings app -> Tap on Accessibility -> Select Voice Over and make sure that the feature is disabled!
Fact: All fixes provided on this page also work for the iPad Camera black screen issue!

Additional Troubleshooting
If none of the above managed to fix your iPhone Camera black screen, there are a few more options to check before deciding to bring your iOS device to a repair shop:
how to disable Location Services for CameraA. Disable Camera Location Services

4. Tap on the Camera label and select Never in the Allow Location Access options.

A new report has unearthed details about a “Apple Genuine Parts Repair” program, which puts Apple service materials in the hands of some companies with fewer restrictions than current service providers may be under.

30366 49749 Screen Shot 2019 03 28 at 124437 PM l

Apple has had a path for companies to become an authorized service provider for decades, with requirements for the program varying dramatically across the years. The new “Apple Genuine Parts Repair” program may be lightening that up somewhat, but there are few firm details on what Apple will require to qualify for the new program.

The report, and leaked presentation slides, published by Motherboard, suggests that the program is already in place at a few vendors. Vendors cited are Mobile Kangaroo in California, Simple Mac in Salt Lake City have access to the program, as well as Makina Technologies in Dubai.

Alleged slide from

Alleged slide from “Apple Genuine Parts Repair” presentation

The program appears to specifically allow repair shops to do things that Apple-authorized centers have been doing for years, without telling Apple. For instance, there are specific prohibitions on swapping in a “known-good” component not from Apple’s stock for troubleshooting, requiring a service replacement part be ordered first.

Specifically, the presentation slides say that providers can “keep doing what you’re doing, with Apple genuine parts, reliable parts supply, and Apple process and training.” Additionally, the details don’t limit the parts to iPhone, iPad, or Mac and include all three.

How the system works now, and where it may change

At present, for most authorized service centers, few if any parts are kept in stock. The remainder are ordered after the diagnostic process is complete, and shipped FedEx to the repair shop. The shop performs the repair, and must return the “core” failed part to Apple for examination, refurbishment and return to service stock, or both.

In the case of a warranty repair, Apple picks up the tab for the difference between the core price and the non-return price. Otherwise, the shop pays the bill, which is then passed to the customer. Core prices are often up to 75 percent the cost of the whole part, ordered new. So, part accountability is important, and Apple has put prohibitions in place to prevent shops from selling directly to customers as a result of abuse in years gone by.

Shops selling parts to users is grounds for a loss of Apple-authorized status — which can be financially deadly. At present, it isn’t clear if the requirement for service centers to perform a “core” swap is retained in the new program, nor if they will be allowed to sell parts directly to customers. It doesn’t seem likely that Apple will loosen either requirement.

It also isn’t clear if there will be an upper line that these providers can’t cross. For instance, Apple may choose to retain the hardware for linking parts after a repair involving something involving the secure enclave is performed. Board-level repair, such as that performed by Louis Rossmann is likely to be frowned upon as well.

Immediate reaction

Apple repair venue iFixit doesn’t think the rumored program goes far enough.

“To start, Apple’s plan appears to be rather limited. We know they’ve talked to big repair chains, but they have not spoken to any of the smaller repair shops we contacted,” wrote iFixit in a post on Thursday afternoon. “If only the large national chains get access to these parts, the independent shops—… get left out in the cold, and will likely lose business as a result. This continues to encourage a repair monoculture that stifles competition, job creation, and innovation in the repair space.”

“Apple would like you to think that independent shops are a sketchy, dangerous minefield of service options that use low-quality parts that can lead to problems down the line. And in some cases, that may be true—but that’s Apple’s fault, not the repair shops’,” iFixit continues. “If Apple would just provide OEM parts to independent repair shops at a reasonable price, these risks would be far smaller.”

Potential sea-change, if accurate

AppleInsider has reached out to Apple for comment, but has not as of yet received a response. Third-party vendors we spoke to after the report was published said that they had heard “rumblings” that such a thing was in the works, but denied having any knowledge that it was imminent.

If the report is completely accurate, it would be the biggest shift in Apple’s repair policies since it started enforcing the rules on authorized repair centers in 1979.

Apple has historically opposed right-to-repair laws in places like California, claiming it would expose company secrets and create safety and security problems. While there are innumerable third-party Apple repair firms around the world, only Apple and its authorized service providers are able to perform full service in a way that doesn’t void warranties. Presently, the company doesn’t provide parts or repair manuals outside of its official network.

Twenty U.S. states have some form of right-to-repair legislation under consideration. Apple is one of several tech companies lobbying politicians to act in its favor.

iOS 13 Find My App.

iOS 13 Find My App.

Apple has decided to merge the Find My Friends and Find My Phone app into a single software intuitively named ‘Find My’. Starting with iOS 13you have a single place where you can search for a lost Apple device or a friend. Besides joining the apps the Cupertino-based tech giant has added a handy new feature that allows you to find misplaced devices even if they’re not connected to a Wi-Fi or cellular network. ‘Find My’ is compatible with iPhone, iPad, Macs, Apple Watch and AirPods.

This is achieved with the help of crowd-sourced location information obtained through the Bluetooth signals of the nearby devices. The Bluetooth signal issued by your device, an iPhone for example, can be picked up by other nearby Apple terminals and relayed back to your Macbook, allowing you to start searching for the missing device. The Find My system comes with end-to-end encryption, meaning that others can’t get the location info and nor can Apple. Your lost devices can only be tracked down by you. For this to work, they need to be connected to the same Apple ID. Of course, you need at least two Apple devices, the lost one and the one used for tracking.

How To Locate Friends and Family With Find My
Find People with Find MyThe Find My app is split into three categories. On the home screen, you can find three tabs at the bottom: People, Devices and Me.
The People tab allows you to locate friends that are sharing their location with you. Their whereabouts are shared on a map. Below the chart, you will find a list of the identified persons as well as info about how far away they are.
Tap an entry to unveil more options. Get directions, contact or schedule a notification for when the person leaves the current location.

How To Find Lost Devices
Find Devices in Find My AppIn the Find My app tap the Devices tab and the list with all your devices will be displayed, just below the map. You can zoom in and out of the map to get a better view of the location. Tap the missing device and you will get the following options: Play Sound, Directions, Notifications, Mark as Lost and Erase this Device.
Directions: Provides valuable info about the location of the missing iOS terminal.
Play Sound: Generates a beeping alert to allow you to detect the exact position of the device.
Notifications: Will generate an alert on your iPhone if the missing device is found and is offline.
Mark as Lost: This will lock your device, disables Apple Pay and brings up contact information on the Lock Screen. As a last resort, there is an option to delete all the data on the device.

The Find My – Me – Tab
Me Tab in Find My appThe third tab of the Find My app provides info about your current location. It also includes toggles for sharing your location and for receiving friend requests. You can also tweak the location updates setting. Do you want to get location updates from everyone that is sharing the location with you or just with specific persons?
Last but not least you have the option to name the current location to make it easier to recognize on the map.

How Apple Devices Without Wi-Fi Or Cellular Data Are Tracked
As mentioned at the start of this article the most interesting new feature of the new Find My app is the option to track devices even if they’re not connected to WiFi or cellular data. However, for this to work you still need an active Bluetooth on the missing device. This means that if the device is powered off, you will be only able to see the last tracked location before the battery died or Bluetooth was turned off. In the Devices list, terminals that are offline have the distance from you displayed with grey color instead of blue. Currently, there is no way to differentiate tracking of the devices. There is no mention that the device was tracked via Bluetooth or thanks to Wi-Fi or cellular data.

Fact: Apple claims that the Find My app isn’t resource intensive. It uses just small junks of data from existing network traffic. This means that it won’t have a significant effect on battery drainage, data usage, and privacy.

Tip: If you have the Family Sharing option enabled all other family devices will be listed below your own devices in the ‘Find My’ app.

FaceTime Attention Correction Feature on iPhone and iPad

FaceTime Attention Correction Feature on iPhone and iPad

FaceTime Attention Correction Feature on iPhone and iPad.

Another interesting new feature coming along iOS 13 is FaceTime Attention Correction. Its role is to make FaceTime video calls more personal by artificially adjusting the set of your eyes so that it helps you to make eye contact with your caller. You probably noticed that every time you are engaged in a FaceTime video call the conversation partner/partners don’t look you directly in your eyes. Naturally, everyone looks at the iPhone’s, iPad’s or at the Mac’s screen, because they want to see what happens at the end of the line.

In order to make eye contact with the other persons, you would need to look both at the device’s camera so that the conversation partner perceives you at looking in their eyes. However, if you do this you won’t be able to see him or her because you can’t look at the same time at the iPhone’s screen and into its cameras. It’s an angle difference that prevents natural eye contact.

FaceTime Attention Correction Feature

How It Works
Starting with iOS 13 Apple has a solution for this small inadvertence. Through a combination of hardware and software improvements compatible iPhone and iPad, models are able to use the front-facing TrueDepth camera to capture an ARKit depth map and artificially “adjust” your eyesight to create the impression that you’re looking at the camera even if you are actually gazing at the iPhone’s screen.

Facetime Attention Correction option in iOS 13 SettingsHow To Set Up
The FaceTime Attention Correction feature is optional. It’s currently not enabled by default. You can turn it on from Settings -> FaceTime -> FaceTime Attention Correction and disable it whenever you want.

Compatibility
You need to own an Apple device equipped with TrueDepth camera hardware and enough image processing power. This means that this feature is compatible with iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the 2018 iPad Pro models. Your device needs to run iOS 13 or later and iPadOS or later.
Fact: the FaceTime Attention Correction feature doesn’t need both participants to own compatible devices.

Debate
Ever since the announcement of this new feature, an interesting debate has started on the online forms. Is FaceTime Attention Correction actually making the conversation more personal, or it’s actually faking the way you look at your conversation partner? Will we end up in the near future video calling someone and appearing to make eye contact while doing something completely else in the background? Do you plan to use this feature or will keep it disabled?

After years of complaints and shortcomings, Apple has finally listened to the voice of millions of iPhone users that have unanimously complained about the obtrusive Volume interface that pops up in the middle of the iPhone screen whenever you’re watching a video and are trying to adjust the Volume. In iOS 13 gone are the moments when the huge square snapped Volume HUD invades the middle of your iPhone’s display.

The iPad was using the same graphics, however, because of the larger screen size, the old Volume indicator was less obtrusive. In iOS 13 the redesigned Volume HUD is rectangular shaped, oriented vertically and pops up on the left edge of the screen when the iPhone is held in portrait position. It shows up, right next to the physical Volume Up and Down buttons. The new Volume interface becomes even smaller and shrinks to a bar right after it pops up and you continue the adjust the loudness of your iPhone. The new design is slick and unobtrusive. Why did Apple needed several years, to improve this feature? I can’t seem to find a logical answer. Anyhow, it’s better late than never! Right?

iOS 13 new Volume hudiOS 13 New Volume Hud Appearance
Nearby you can have a look at the redesigned iPhone Volume interface. In landscape mode, the rectangular bar pops up, centered, at the top of the screen. It shrinks down as you continue to adjust the loudness.
Fact: At the time of writing there are 34 volume levels to choose from.

iOS 13 Volume Hud Gesture Trick
Besides fine-tuning the Volume levels from the classical buttons you can also apply slide gestures because the Indicator is responsive! Drag the Volume bar up or down (left or right when in landscape) to the desired intensity. Click one of the Volume buttons once, and after the Indicator pops up to use your finger to quickly bring up or down the loudness to the desired levels.
Fact: The fastest way to completely silence your iPhone is still done with the help of the Silent switch available just above the Volume buttons.

iOS 13 Volume HUD On Jailbroken iOS Devices
If you’re using a jailbroken iPhone running iOS 11 or iOS 12 you can now grab the redesigned iOS 13 Volume HUD thanks to a jailbreak tweak provided by developer iKilledAppl3.
Fact: The difference between this jailbreak tweak and the original behavior of the new Volume Hud is that the bar doesn’t shrink and it’s also not responsive to the gesture trick described above.

iphone xr with black screen issue
By iyasss-admin / Phone repair / 0 Comments

This post is generated by a recent event that occurred to one of our iPhone models. The XR stopped working all of a sudden and displayed a black screen as if the device shutdown out of the blue. The iPhone XR did not react to the Raise to Wake gesture, to Side Button presses, nor to any other taps on the screen. I have to mention that the battery levels were high (around 80%) before this happened.

The iPhone seemed turned off, and I started considering a shortcut in the battery because it seemed totally dead, as if I was holding a brick in my hand. However, I found out later that it wasn’t the case because I left it to rest for a while and when I picked it up to see if it got resurrected, the brick was warm which means that some kind of loop was definitely ongoing in the background. This made me apply a few tips to see if I can bring back the iPhone XR to normal working conditions.

Important: Please apply the following tips only to an iPhone that hasn’t suffered from any liquid or mechanical shock damage. All tips are intended to fix an iOS device that has firmware bug or any other software glitch. Hardware problems require a visit to a smartphone service shop!

How To Troubleshoot iPhone XR With Black Screen

1. Power Source
First of all, if you aren’t sure about the Battery status, plug-in your device to a power source and check if the battery isn’t actually completely depleted. In my case, although I knew that the levels were around 80% I, plugged the device into the wall outlet, without any success though. No charging, the iPhone XR was unresponsive.
2. Shutdown and Power Back On
Secondly, I tried to shut down the device. I pressed and held the Side Button together with one of the Volume buttons. No success, The “slide to power off” screen did not show up, the display remained black.
3. Hard Reset iPhone XR
Next, I attempted to hard reset the iOS device via the following combo:
Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. -> Press and quickly release the Volume Down button -> Press and hold the Side button until you see the Apple logo. Nothing happened, still black screen, still bricked.
4. Recovery Mode Restore
iphone xr with apple logoI did not end up performing an iPhone XR restore in Recovery Mode but I will mention this step if the solution that was useful in my case won’t solve your problem too. When the iPhone needs a Recovery Mode to restore it means that it has a major operating system problem. Damaged system files are repaired while the device is in the Recovery Mode. To be able to perform this fix you need a trusted computer running Windows or Mac, which runs the latest iTunes version available. Of course, that the ideal case is to back up all important files, but if the black screen of death issue takes you by surprise, you most likely won’t have a recent backup available. Nevertheless, here is how a Recovery Mode restore works:
-> Connect iPhone to a computer via Lightning cable.
-> Press and quickly release the Volume Up button -> Press and quickly release the Volume Down button -> Press & hold the Side button until the Apple logo appears. If the apple logo is on your screen, you can release and allow the iPhone XR to boot up normally. If the screen gets black again, repeat the procedure and hold the Side button pressed even after the Apple logo appears on the screen to enter the Recovery Mode. -> Release the Side button only when you see the Connect to iTunes logo on the screen.
-> Perform the restore. Data on your iPhone will be whipped out and your most recent backup will be used for restoring. If you don’t have a backup the iPhone will be set up as new!

How I Recovered My iPhone XR From The Black Screen Of Death

iphone xr powered onThis was the first time ever since my almost 10 years of owning an iPhone when I was confronted with the Black Screen of death issue. It happened with a 256 GB iPhone XR. I had just worked on the device right before this happened. 5 minutes later I tried to pick up the smartphone to set up the alarm for the next morning and the device was dead. At first, I gave it some time to see if it will automatically reboot in the background. I finished the evening preparations and before going to bed I had another attempt. Nothing. So, I started applying the steps described above. At first, I tried to shut down the device. Then to power it back on. I applied the force restart combo. Still nothing. Then I repeated the same steps with the iPhone plugged-in, still nothing. By now I was already thinking about a Recovery Mode Restore. However, with all data loss risks involved, I tried on more time to shut down the device.
Solution: This time I pressed the Side Button together with the Volume Up button. Although the display remained black and there was still no “slide to power off” option, I performed the slide as if it was there. I waited for a couple of seconds then pressed and held the Side Button and miraculously the Apple logo appeared and the iPhone XR booted up normally! Battery percentage levels were at 56% down from +80% in only one hour of black screen!
Tip: The first thing that I did was to update from iOS 12.3.1 to the latest software update available at the moment, iOS 12.4!

Prevention Against iPhone XR Black Screen Issue

The most important thing that you can do in order to keep your iPhone away from shutting down suddenly or becoming unresponsive is to keep the iOS version up to date, especially if you own a new model!
Secondly, make sure that you have updated backups of your device!

iphone x in contact with water
By iyasss-admin / Phone repair / 0 Comments

Although we expected the iPhone X to receive the IP68 water resistance rating and match the water tightness of its main competitor the Samsung Galaxy S8, Apple’s iPhone ‘Ten’ remains at the IP67Ingress Protection level. This value is identical with the one received by the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models, the first iOS devices to be advertised as water-resistant by Apple.

Early in the year, we predicted that the upcoming 10th anniversary iPhone would get an iP68 rating, motivated by the fact that the elimination of the Home button would make the device more watertight as any other released iPhone. There was no surprise to see that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus flagships also remained at the IP67 standard, but it’s unexpected for me to find out that the iPhone X can’t match its main rival when it comes to water protection.

Differences Between IP67 and iP68
As explained here, IP stands for Ingress Protection. The first digit shows the dustproofness and can have values from 0-6 while the second digit ranks the water-resistance and varies from 1-9. IP6X devices have the maximum level of dust resistance. The difference between the iPhone X IP67 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 IP68 is that the lower-ranked iOS device is able to withstand 30 minutes submerged in up to 1 meter of water, while the Android smartphone can resist the same time at the depth of 1.5 meters!

Water Damage Not Covered For iPhone X
samsung galaxy s8 splashed with waterAs usual, although Apple advertises the 2017 iPhone flagships as being water-resistant, a potential water damage isn’t covered by the standard 1-year AppleCare warranty that’s included for free when you purchase the iPhone X. Liquid damage is included with AppleCare+ though, but this requires you to spend an additional $199 on top of the device’s 4-figure price tag. Then, if water gets into your iPhone X you have to pay the Other Damage fee of $99.
Fact: Only two incidents are covered by the AppleCare+ insurance. Both Screen Replacement and Other Damage incidents are counted.

Conclusion: Although in most cases it’s safe to expose your iPhone X to water, you better avoid it. If you accidentally drop it the toilet, in your bathtub or bring it near any source of water. take it out as soon as possible and let it dry. You should escape with no damage. Do take into account that water resistance might drop over time as aging kicks in and your device is exposed to temperature differences and various shocks.
