Apple iPhone had really caught the limelight with its newly released phones: iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Not to mention, Apple’s release of iOS 7, which had caused more of a stir than the launch of the latest flagships mentioned-rendering Apple being one of the most talked about issues these days.
Now, making the iOS 7 the topic, a lot of iPhone users praised the upgrade of the iOS on their iDevice. Also, there were more than a few who wished that they haven’t upgraded their smartphone’s platform. If you are among those people who are disappointed about some of the features iOS 7, then don’t hate yet. Surely, you can’t get iOS 6 back again, but there are still a few tips and tricks to somewhat somehow switch back to iOS 6. Follow these quick guides below:
#1: Remove the Parallax Effect
The 3D effect known as Parallax is great, but it’s not great for some people. Not to mention, it’s not much of a big deal. Plus, they can only drain your phone’s battery faster. To turn off the parallax effect, just follow these simple steps:
Go to: Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion
And from there, as you see the Reduce Motion, toggle it to turn it off.
#2: Disable Control Center
Control Center is one of the best features the iOS 7 boasts. Just swipe the screen from the bottom upward, and discover what this feature can do. In the panel, you’ll find connectivity options, volume, screen brightness, and media keys for movies and music that you can adjust. But the problem shows when you swipe upward to scroll your web browser page, or to play a game just to see this Control Center spoiling the fun. To turn it off:
Go to: Settings > Control Center… and set Access on Lock Screen to white; not green.
#3: Prolong Your Phone’s Battery
Although iPhones have replacement batteries available online and in-stores, it’s better if you know how to prolong your iPhone’s battery at hand since replacing the battery for iPhone is not an easy thing. Knowing iOS 7, it is indeed savage on your battery with all the features it flaunts. Try these tips to extend once more your iDevices’ batteries:
• Switch off Background App Refresh, Bluetooth, and AirDrop unless you are actually using them.
• Close down apps that you’re not actually using since they can be a real deal of battery drainer.
#4: Disable Siri
Siri is an iOS’s intelligent, voice-activated, personal assistant that helps you get things done just by asking. But for some, Siri can just be an irritating app that pops up whenever you accidentally hold down the home key button. To disable Siri you must…
Go to: Settings > General… and from there, disable Siri.
Truly, sometimes it’s much better to be simpler. There are things that are needless to have since they don’t really do too much, which may at times be bunch of baloneys. Not to say that they are useless, in fact they are great! But, some of them are not just in the right place. All hopes up that Apple could enhance this, or iPhone users can get the hang of it.
