iPhone Feature Request: Copy ‘Skip Lock Screen’ feature from Google’s Pixel 4

Face Unlock on Google’s Pixel 4 is less secure than the iPhone’s Face ID, but it does have one feature I’d like to see Apple copy: Skip Lock Screen.

Copying that would be perfectly fair, as Google has recently confirmed that it will be copying at least part of Face ID’s Require Attention feature…


The Pixel 4 will copy Require AttentionLike Apple’s iPhone X, XS, and 11, Google’s new flagship Pixel 4 smartphone can unlock by recognizing your face. However, the company quickly came under fire when it was revealed that the device can be unlocked even when the owner is asleep, simply by someone else holding it up to their face.

With iPhones, there is a Requires Attention toggle. When this is on, your iPhone will only unlock if your eyes are open and you are actually looking at the screen. Google has now said that it plans to copy at least the first part of this requirement.

Google this evening confirmed to The Verge that it’s “been working on an option for users to require their eyes to be ope…

iOS 8 How to: Monitor and track your battery usage

 Have you ever wondered how much your battery is being used? Or have you ever wondered why sometimes when you use certain applications dramatically drains the battery? New in iOS 8 Configuration application is the ability to track usage of the battery for each application you have installed on your device. This method is very similar to track your cellular data usage. 

In iOS 7, which shows how much the battery has been used and how long the battery was on alert since last full charge, but does not define or describe how it was made. To monitor and track your battery usage on iOS 8, ​​first go to Settings.

With iOS 8 by default, the battery percentage off. I recommend turning it on, and they immediately give you a better idea of what your battery life is so contrary to the image of the battery.

Touching on battery usage, is displayed the first time since last full charge. This information was available in iOS 7 Shows you use, how long has actually been committed to using the device and the screen will display pending the time the device has been idle and has not been used.

f moves down further, there are suggestions to increase battery usage. One suggestion would be to reduce the brightness of the disply. Personally, I have my devices set to maximum brightness. I want to be able to fully enjoy the high definition Retina screen on my iPhone 6 and not force my eyes. As for the screen, another suggestion would be to allow automatic brightness automatically adjusts the screen brightness according to your environment. Another suggestion might show is to turn Wi-Fi. Using Wi-Fi to access the data, it uses less battery power a cellular network connection.

Also, you will see a list of applications and see how much the application uses the battery. This information can help you determine if you are constantly using certain applications or could be due to background activity. You can see the battery usage in the last 24 hours, or in the last 7 days.

There are several reasons application use a lot of battery: 


  1. The application is constantly being used by you. In my example above, is precisely the case of Tweetbot. 
  2. The application is being used in the background. It could be the content download, upload content, use location services or streaming audio. In my example, the mail application is downloading new emails in the background. 
  3. The application is being used in an area with poor cell service. When this happens, it gets more work and drains the battery quickly. If this happens, the phone application appears in the list and a list of low signal appears. 
  4. The application does not work properly. For example, the application may be constantly crashing. Or just the application that is used, but however, is in the top of the list. 
  5. The application is using AirPlay. The application is audio streaming to AirPlay speakers or video to an Apple TV. 

By using this tool, a usage percentage is a percentage of the battery being used. For example, if your iPhone has 80% battery but lists that music has been used for 50%, that means that the music uses 10% of battery power. This tool must be used occasionally. I recommend checking that when you think that there are problems with the battery, which is faster than normal drainage, which then gives you an idea on how to solve any of the applications that are draining the battery.

Google's latest smart display brings with it a controversial new feature that's always watching. Face Match, introduced on the Google Nest Hub Max, uses the smart display's front-facing camera as a security feature and a way to participate in video calls.
