How To Save Your iPhone Battery From Running Down Fast

We all know iPhone Battery doesn't last long but on this post, I'll be exposing you on some iPhone settings you need to turn off inorder to save your battery or prevent it from running down fast.

Iphone Settings To Turn Off

1. iPhone Analytics

Turning this off will improve your iPhone’s battery life and give you more privacy. iPhone Analytics sends data from your iPhone to Apple which drains your battery and could present a privacy issue about how you use your phones.
This feature is so that they can improve their stuff but that’s their job in my opinion. Although the data sent is de-identified this is an unnecessary feature if you are already having battery performance issues.
So how do we do it, 
open the Settings App scroll down to Privacy, scroll down to Analytics turn-off share iPhone Analytics. This will also turn off data collection on your Apple watch great bonus and everything else in here too.
Go to Settings > Privacy > Analytics > Turn Off Share iPhone Analytics
iPhone settings

2. Cloud Analytics

Like iPhone Analytics, turning this off will improve your iPhone’s battery life and give you more privacy.

We just want to turn this off as we did for iPhone Analytics it’s just with iCloud on the same screen nice and easy.

3. Significant Locations

Significant Locations tracks the places you visit most often and saves them onto your iPhone. Turning it off will improve your battery life and help you maintain your privacy.

Significant Locations means that your iPhone keeps track of everywhere you go by using your GPS. They can then deliver relevant advertising to you, which is supposed to make your experience better but I think it’s kind of creepy.

For instance it’s really weird when you’ve had it turned on for a long time and then you go to Significant Locations. It’s like here are the ten places you’ve been and I’m like wow I had no idea! It’s like a horror movie so let’s turn off Significant Locations go back to Privacy, tap Privacy in the upper left and scroll up to Location Services. Now scroll all the way to the bottom to System Services.

You know they don’t want you to turn it off when they bury it in like five layers.

Then scroll to Significant Locations, tap on that and turn it off, if I had left it on for a week it would have my home address, gym, work and any place I’ve been so turn it off and you’ll have the option to clear the history there in case you’re freaking out which is pretty cool.

Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Significant Locations > Turn Off Significant Locations

iPhone location

4. System Services

Almost everything in System Services are unnecessary as they are constantly running in the background of your iPhone and draining its battery.

So let’s just tap back to Settings and we are going to turn off everything in here and this is my recommendation except for Emergency Calls & SOS, Find my iPhone and Share My Location if that’s a feature that you use.

Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services

iPhone system service

So let’s turn off:

· Compass Calibration

· Location-Based Alerts

· Setting Time Zone — Kind turn off only if you’re traveling a lot so if you do travel just turn it on and then it fixes the time zone. Turn it back off again once you arrive, you can tell that even with it on there is a purple arrow which means that it was tracking your location to find out what time zone you were in. Wasting your battery life so if you are not traveling through time zones it doesn’t need to be checking all the time.

· WiFi Calling — Turn it off if you already have good cellphone reception in your area. So I promise you that all these things are just going to save your iPhone battery life.

Here’s the thing all these things make it seem like if you turn them off then it’s going to stop working. Except it doesn’t stop working if you turn it off a lot of this stuff is just data for Apple. So if you think you can live without it just Turn it off.

5. Limit Ad Tracking

Limit Ad Tracking will prevent advertisers from collecting more detailed information about you.

Limited Ad Tracking is off by default so this is something we are going to Turn on in order to Turn it off. All right so let’s tap back to the main Location Services menu then back to Privacy and then scroll to the bottom and tap Advertising.

· Go to Settings > Privacy > Advertising > Turn On Limit Ad Tracking

So yes by turning it on it’s going to turn off the tracking to prevent advertisers from tracking you, as you use your iPhone when connected to the Internet.

You’d be amazed how well it works to help them target your location and run ads as you move around. Collecting more information about you so keep it on as it’s kind of creepy.

6. Fetch New Data

Fetch New Data — Changing your Settings from Push to Fetch will help you save battery life.

So let’s tap Privacy in the upper left hand corner to go back, tap Settings again and scroll down to Passwords & Accounts.

· Go to Settings > Passwords & Accounts > Tap Every 15 Minutes > Turn Off Push > Change Accounts you want to Fetch

iPhone settings

So with Fetch new data is set to every 15 minutes which is good with Push turned off. I recommend always turning off Push as your iPhone will always be connected to your Mail Servers and iCloud and will always be requesting mail every second, whereas Fetch means that your iPhone checks every 15 minutes or 30 minutes or however often you decide.

Whether there’s new mail so unless you’re in a situation where you need to know exactly this second when you got a new email you can save a lot of battery life, by turning off Push and changing your accounts to Fetch which you can do individually.

So Turn off Push and have Fetch enabled for your main Mail Accounts and then set up the Fetch settings at the bottom and choose every 15 minutes.

I should mention too that you can always open the Mail App and see if there’s a new email. So whenever you use the App it’s going to check as well, so most people won’t ever notice a difference except for improved battery life!

7. Background App Refresh

Background App Refresh for certain Apps — This will prevent Apps from constantly running in the background of your iPhone and draining its battery life.

· Go to Settings > General > Background App Refresh > Turn Off Apps you don’t need to be continuously updating in the background

The last setting that you should turn off right away is Background App Refresh. So let’s head back to Accounts and back to Settings, scroll up to General and then scroll down to Background App Refresh perfect.

Background App Refresh allows certain Apps to download data in the background even when you’re not using them. So I recommend going through this list and turning off Background App Refresh for Apps that don’t need to download data when you’re not using them.

So for instance the Amazon App to update when you’re not using it is generally not required same with Hulu, Nomorobo, Podcasts, Reddit, Robinhood and SEFCU in the example above.

However there might be Apps you do need to be updating in the background like an app like News or ESPN, if you want the score right now so that might be understandable. So that is exactly why you should have it on in this case perfect.

Now if your battery is still Draining Fast and or Getting Hot the best way to check the changes you have made are working, is to go to Settings and then scroll down and tap the Battery Usage by App.

· Go to Settings > Battery > Tap Battery Usage by App

You should now see the Settings App start to drop below your highest power consuming Apps. From here you can then see what Apps are actually consuming up your battery life and need to be Turned-Off right away.

Top 5 Best Gaming Smartphone In 2021

Most portable gaming device such as Nitendo DS, PSP, etc are now being replaced by powerful smartphones.
But not all smartphones are good for games. There are things to consider before a smartphone can be good for gaming, things like extra high refresh rates, touch-sensitive triggers, cooling systems, and more.

I've compiled the best gaming smartphones from best to worst along with their specs. They are:

Other Ways You Can Use Your Old Smartphone Without Throwing It Away

 Other Ways You Can Use Your Old Smartphone Without Throwing It Away

Two hands holding two Samsung phoe

When you buy a brand new smartphone, what do you actually do with the old one?
There are many things you can do with your old smartphone instead of throwing it away. Apart from giving it to someone if we don't want to sell it, here are great ideas you can try with your old smartphone without throwing it away.

1. Create an Untraceable Phone

As it is now, hackers can easily trace back all the data from your phone back to you. If you have an old smartphone, you can turn it into a "ghost phone" that will be completely untraceable.

A ghost phone has a lot of benefits. For example, it will keep your identity secure on online dating sites or if you're selling something online.

Here's how to do it:

  • Install one of the apps that provide a temporary phone number. Check Here for examples
  • Add a secure VPN service that encrypts all data going out of your phone. For example, CyberGhost and ExpressVPN.
  • Create a new Google or Apple account from the phone. Don't sign in with your existing account on the app stores. Similarly, create new accounts for any app you want to use.
  • Don't buy any app or service. Online transactions leave a money trail.
  • This is a handy gadget to have with you. Any time you want to take a data-sensitive online action, it'll keep you more secure than your everyday phone.

2. Turn Your phone Into a Security Camera

Instead of spending good money to buy a bunch of security cameras, why not just use old smartphones? They work brilliantly, and it's easy too.

Here's how to do this:

  • You can use popular apps such as Wardencam, if your old smartphone is an android device.
  • Download the app and sign in with your Gmail account.
  • Put your phone where you want it, and you can watch all the action on another phone or computer

3. Use It As A Universal Remote Control

This is one of the most popular ways to reuse an old smartphone. You'll be able to control almost anything in your smart home such as TV, decoder, AC, etc.

You need to check whether your Android phone has an infrared (IR) blaster. This will let it connect to TVs, air conditioners, and other devices that normally use a remote control. Most Xiaomi phones like Redmi comes with IR blaster. Sadly, no iPhones have an IR blaster in them.

If the phone has an IR blaster, just grab one of the best remote apps that we recommended. All Xiaomi Phones that comes with IR blaster, already have a system remote app installed, so there will be no need for 3rd party apps.

If the phone doesn't have an IR blaster, you'll need to add IR connectivity. You can do that by adding IR blaster to the phone with a third-party accessory.

4. Use It As A Portable Gaming Device

Playing game on Android Phone


If your old smartphone has a lot of internal memory, you can turn it into a portable gaming device for yourself your kids.

Instead of making use of your new phone for business and pleasure (gaming), your old smartphone can help you with the gaming part.
This is perhaps the simplest way to repurpose an old smartphone, and your kids will love you for it. Given the amazing games released on Android and iOS these days, it's also a cheaper option than buying a PlayStation Portable or Nintendo DS.


5. Turn It Into A Mobile Cinema

As long as your old smartphone has a screen large enough to watch movies and internal storage to contain lots of movies, you can turn it into a mobile cinema.

Most people don't like watching movies with their phone, they prefer watching it on TV or making use of their laptops. This helps them keep their phone storage free from filling up with movies and also they can watch movies without being interrupted by calls or messages.
You can put your main phone on airplane mode while watching movie with the old phone. 
This is a very good way to reuse your old smartphone.

6. Leave It Permanently In Your Car

Smartphone on a phone holder in a car


A lot of people overlook the simplest use for an old smartphone. Grab a car phone holder, a double-port car charger, and fix your phone in place permanently.
You can use your old smartphone as GPS Navigator when driving to places you've never been before.

It means you don't need to waste your regular phone's battery or data on GPS and turn-by-turn directions.

Similarly, you don't even need to spend a ridiculous amount of money for an awesome car stereo with Bluetooth and internet radio. Just buy one of the best Bluetooth speakers and play music from your car phone.


Keeping hold of old devices and finding new uses for them is better for the environment than throwing them into the wastebin. Most smartphone companies advises not to throw away your device, they should be recycled instead. 
If you can't find a new home for the phone, find a new use instead. The same goes for other technology gadgets you have around the house.

Fastest Way To Find Out If Your Page Has Been Indexed by Google


If you are blogger or website owner and you need to find out whether or not Google has indexed a specific page on your site, use this easy method below.

Open up the Google homepage in your browser.

In the search field or address bar, type cache: and then the URL for the page you wish to check:

If the page has been indexed, you’ll see a snapshot of the page that has been cached and at the top will be a panel that will indicate when the page was last indexed:
Page indexed by Google



If the page hasn’t been indexed, you’ll see an error notification like the following:
Fastest Way To Find Out If Your Page Has Been Indexed by Google
This method has been available on Google for years but many people either don’t know about it or have forgotten about it altogether. I guess it's due to stampeding directly to Search Console for indexing status, which, of course, you should be doing regularly.



But to check on a single page or two, this trick works just fine.

Have fun!

How To Setup Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) On Facebook

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a security method that requires two different ways of proving your identity. It is commonly used in everyday life. For example paying with a credit card not only requires the card, but also a PIN, a signature, or an ID. With 1FA becoming increasingly unreliable as a security measure, 2FA is rapidly gaining importance for logging into online accounts.
To secure your Facebook account from hackers, it's very necessary that you setup your 2 factor authentication. In this post, I'll teach you how to do it with ease.

To use 2FA on Facebook, you'll need an account with a third-party authentication app such as Google Authenticator. If you have the the authenticator app and also created an account, then all that's left to do now is set up 2FA on Facebook using the authentication app. Here's how...

On Facebook.com:

  • Go to Facebook.com/settings.
  • Click "Security and Login".
  • Scroll down to "Use two-factor authentication" and click "Edit".
  • Click "Use authentication app" and follow the instructions.

On the Facebook app:

  • Click the three lines in the top-right of the app.
  • Click "Settings and Privacy".
  • Click "Settings".
  • Click "Security and Login".
  • Click "Use two-factor authentication".
  • Select "Authentication app" and follow the instructions.

How To Recover Facebook Account In 2021 (100% Working Method)

Gone are those times when recovering of a facebook Account works through clicking on forgotten password. I bet most of us must have tried accessing our lost Facebook account by clicking on forgotten password, in which after entering our phone number, email or facebook name, you will still get an error message that your account does not exist or cannot be found, despite the fact that the details you imputed are correct. Just as this image below.
Facebook recovery phone number not correct

If you've given up your facebook Account after a failed attempts while using the above recovery method, I have a good news for you. The good news is that you can successfully recover that your Facebook account successfully using the methods I'm going to share with you in this post. Do well to read till the end, you will sure get a solution.

Facebook offers several automated ways to recover your account. Most of them depend on information you entered and validated when setting up your account. If you haven't done that or if the information is outdated, the chances are slim that you'll be able to recover access to your account. 
If your account was hacked and your details were changed, this post is for you. Just read to the end, you will get a solution.

Working Methods on How To Recover Facebook Account In 2021:

1. Create New Password From Logged In Device

Before you try to recover your account, check whether you are still logged into Facebook on any of your devices. This could be another browser or browser profile on your computer, your Facebook Android or iOS app, or a mobile browser, for example, your tablet.
If you can still access Facebook anywhere, you might be able to "recover" your Facebook password without a confirmation reset code; though what you'll actually do is create a new password.
Under Settings > Security and Login, scroll down to Login and click Change password. Enter your current password, set a strong new password (mixture of capital and small letters, numbers & special symbols) and click Save Changes.
Changing facebook password
After changing your password, scroll back up to Where You're Logged In. Either Log Out of individual sessions by clicking the three vertical dots or click the Log Out Of All Sessions option in the bottom-right after expanding the list. Do this only if you're sure you can log back in.
Facebook sessions


We recommend logging out completely, provided your contact details and security settings are up to date. You don't want to jeopardize your means of logging back in. If you're unsure, manually log out of all recent sessions that seem suspicious. After successfully getting back your account, kindly consider setting up two-factor authentication on Facebook.

2. Recover Your Account From Its Profile Page

If you have access to another Facebook account, for example your second account, account of a friend or family member, and you can access your account's profile page that way because you're Facebook friends, you can use this option. Note that it will require logging out that account.

To proceed with this option, search for your profile on your Facebook friend's or second account friend list, open it, and click the ... on or below your profile image (in the mobile app, the three-dot menu will show up below the image), then select Find Support or Report Profile.
Make sure you are using a computer to do this or you can switch your phone browser to desktop mode inorder for it to work well.
Facebook account report profile

From the next menu, select the appropriate option, in this case I Can't Access My Account, and click Next.

Facebook account report profile page

Facebook account report page, I can't access my account

In the final step, click Recover this account, which will log you out of the account you're using, to start the account recovery.

This will lead you to Reset Your Password. 
The recovery is based on the phone number and email address/es you added to your account.

Facebook recovery method


If you didn't connect your Facebook to any email or phone number at all, this might not work for you. Kindly follow the instructions from the next method below.

3. Find and Recover Your Account With Contact Details
If you don't have access to Facebook at all or prefer not to log out of another account, open a new browser profile, e.g. a guest profile, and head to the Facebook recover page. Enter an email address or phone number you previously added to your Facebook account. When you search for a phone number, try it with or without your country code, e.g. 1, +1, or 001 for the US; all three versions should work. Even if it doesn't say so, you can also use your Facebook username.
Find your Facebook account

Once you successfully manage to identify your account, you will see a summary of your profile. Before you proceed, carefully check whether this really is your account and whether you still have access to the email address(es) or phone number(s) listed. You may be able to choose between email or phone recovery.

If you No longer have access to the email and password you used in opening the Facebook account, proceed to method number 4 of this post 

If all looks well with the contact details that Facebook has on file for you, however, click Continue. Facebook will send you a security code.
Facebook security code

Retrieve the code from your email or phone (depending on which method you chose), enter it, and your Facebook account will be recovered successfully.
If you didn't receive the code after waiting for like 2 mins, click Didn't get a code? in the bottom-left corner of the Enter Security Code window, which will take you back to the previous screen. You can try again or maybe you'll realize that you don't have access to the account after all.

Log Back Into Your Facebook Account
If you managed to regain access to your account and if you suspect that your Facebook account was hacked, immediately change your password and update your contact information. These are key steps in securing your Facebook account. Be sure to remove any email addresses or phone numbers that are not your own or that you can no longer access.

 4. If You No Longer Have Access To Your Contact Information.

Most times, you can't recover your Facebook account using the above methods if you no longer have access to the email or number you used in opening your Facebook account, or maybe a hacker changed your contact information. In that case, Facebook allows you to specify a new email address or phone number, which it will use to contact you about recovering your account.

To start this process, click the link No longer have access to these? in the bottom-left of the reset password page (see abovemethod, for the Facebook account recovery process.)

Facebook reset password page

 Facebook will ask you for a new email address or phone number, so that it can get in touch with you to help you recover your account. Click Continue to proceed.

Facebook reach

Alternatively, If you have set up Trusted Contacts, you can ask facebook friends to help you recover your Facebook account in the next step. You'll need to remember at least one full name of your Trusted Contacts to reveal all of them. Note that you only need three codes to recover your Facebook account.

If you didn't set up Trusted Contacts, you might be given the option to answer one of your security questions and reset your password on the spot. As an additional precaution, this comes with a 24-hour waiting period before you can access your account.

Otherwise, you might have to wait until Facebook gets in touch to verify your identity. Be patient.

5. For Hacked And Compromised Account.

Was Your Facebook Account Hacked to Send Out Spam?

In the event that your account was hacked and use in posting spam while you can no longer access it, you should report your Facebook account as compromised.

Facebook hacked report

This will actually start a similar process to the one outlined above. While you will use the same information to identify your account, in the following step you will be able to use either a current or old Facebook password to recover your account.

Facebook recovery method
This is useful in case a hacker changed your password, but it may also come in handy if you forget your new password.


6. Confirm Your Identity With Facebook

If all of Facebook's automated account recovery methods above have failed, your last hope is Facebook support itself.

Head to this page: https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/183000765122339

Upload a JPEG (photo) of your ID, enter an email address or mobile phone number that is (or was) associated with the Facebook account you wish to recover, then click Send to submit the information.

Note: If you didn't use your real name on Facebook, your hopes for recovering your account this way are close to zero.

If you know other method of recovering s Facebook account which is not listed in this post, kindly do well to contribute to the post using the comment box.

Facebook security Tips

If after trying the whole methods listed above and none worked, you just have to move on. As much as it hurts, learn from your mistakes, create a new account, be sure to add several valid contact details, secure your Facebook account, and rebuild your profile from scratch. It's a pain, but it's better than nothing. This also goes to those that their facebook Account are yet to be compromised. Update your account information with your correct and latest details, also secure your Facebook account using all the security features.

How To Remove Write Protection From SD Card

 How To Remove Write Protection From SD Card

How To Remove Write Protection From SD Card
Have you ever encountered write Protection warning that that pops up when you insert an SD card into devices such as computer, digital camera,etc, and could not find a solution to it?

In this post you will find out:

  •  why you cannot format the write-protected SD card
  •  methods on how to remove protection from a memory card
  •  how Disk Internals software can help you

What does it mean, if an SD card is write protected?


This may happen every time: you insert an SD card to the adapter in your computer/laptop, digital camera, etc and you can view and read all the files located on it, but this is all that you can do with this SD card.
You will find it impossible to add anything, and you cannot format a write-protected card. Below are the possible reasons and solutions to why an SD Card is write protected.

Reasons and Solutions:


1. SD card is write-protected for physical reasons
SD card is write protected because of switcher
How To Remove Write Protection From SD Card

Here, the switch that protects the SD card from being overwritten is active.

To fix it, disable the lock. On each SD card on one side, there is a switch, which needs to be shifted in the opposite direction and then the SD card can be reconnected to the computer.

Did this method for removing write protection from an SD card not help you? No worries since there are many other solutions to the situation.

2. SD card write-protected due to software
This situation may occur due to read-only attributes.

To fix it, delete them using the command line.

Press Win + X at the same time; you will see a cmd window where you need to type "diskpart" on the keyboard and confirm pressing Enter.
How To Remove Write Protection From SD Card

Then enter the command "list disk" and press Enter.

Then enter the command "list disk" and press Enter.

Disks connected to the system will appear in a new window. Select your SD card (you can find it by the appropriate disk size; for example, drive 0).


Next, in command Prompt, type: "select disk 0", then press Enter.

Then enter the command "list disk" and press Enter.

Next, enter the attributes. "disk clear read-only command" and press Enter.


These actions will remove the attributes and remove write protection from your micro SD card.

DL tech

4. Write protection is gone but so is the data
This is due to improper use of the diskpart utility. (Sometimes instead of removing the write protection, users format their SD cards). And, as you know, due to the formatting, all data is lost.

To fix it, use DiskInternals Partition Recovery. This application recreates the file system on the SD card, so the files can be found and restored. It recovers any file: photos, music, videos, documents, etc. You can also not worry about large files: the application can handle even them. It has been designed to satisfy user's needs without fail:

There is a free file preview for assurance.
There is a trial version at no cost; you only need to pay if you want to save the recovered files to any disk visible to the system and with unshakable technical support.
