IOS, the iPhone operating system, is one of the unique and effective software there is for this gadget lovers. They have many versions and each version has its definite features. IOS is known for its user-friendly intuitive interface which is very convenient for apple device users.
With IOS, you should expect:
IOS prompts users to create a six-digit passcode instead of a four-digit one that can be easily cracked as opposed to the six. It enables one to make an alphanumeric passcode which has both letters and numbers and also gives you an unlimited number of passwords. It’s also easy to change a password to an alphanumeric. You just open the settings app-Tap touch ID and passcode then change the password.
When asked to enter new passcode, tap passcode options, and select custom alphanumeric code, then enter your passcode and ensure that it’s a passcode you will remember. This alphanumeric security change means that no one will be able to plug a device in your iPhone in an attempt to hack into it. It kicks an hour after your phone was locked unless you deselect the setting.
To create custom imessages for calls you can’t answer
IOS lets you respond to a call with a message when it’s not the right time to receive a phone call. Sometimes it gives you an option to explain what you are doing. This depends on the version of IOS you are running. You can either swipe upward on the phone icon that appears next to the unlock slider and choose to respond with a text or tap the button labeled message above the slide to answer the slider.
By default, you’ll get three messages options which are; “sorry I can’t talk right now” “I’m on my way” and “can I call you later” along with a button that lets you enter a text there at that time or you can even customize the prepared messages. However, you cannot have more than three responses if you add a new one of the correct options.
Safety for Kids
IOS 12 comes with further parental controls in the form of screen time. This lets you set allowances for the use of certain apps or categories of app warnings when time is running out and eventually a block. Kids can ask for extra time but the decision will not be able to access unsuitable and mature content on the devices.
The new feature in IOS 12 makes people less addicted to their iPhones. By going to settings and checking screen time, you’ll be able to know how often you used your phone and what apps consumed your time. You can also access the screen time breakdown for the last seven days. This can help you set downtime with only certain apps being available between certain hours. For instance, you can set it at 10 pm and get a notification before your downtime starts.
It’s also possible to set app limits especially social networking times. For instance, you can just use them for 2hrs in a day.
IOS features a quick type system with a wide keyboard that is very smart. It can guess what you are doing or trying to write and it will sometimes correctly autocorrect your typed speech into the right one.
It gets better as you can still customize to know your favorite personal shortcuts and abbreviations and phrases you will like it expand from those abbreviations. You might decide that YOLO be turned into you only live once etc. It’s easy to set up your own shortcut. To create, go to settings>General>scroll down and tap Keyboard select text replacement.
