We'll show you how you can change or disable the OnePlus Shelf

Ever since the Google Discover feed debuted, OnePlus fans have been begging to ditch the company's Shelf alternative in favor of the Android standard. Still, it wasn't until the OnePlus 8 series that this even became an option. With the OnePlus 9 series, users can access both the Google Discover feed and the OnePlus Shelf simultaneously, but not everyone wants that either. You see, the way you access the OnePlus shelf is via a pull-down gesture in the middle of your screen, but it's not immediately apparent that it is the way it's supposed to be. Some would prefer to just use that gesture as a way to reach the notification and settings shade better, and the good news is that now, you can set yours up to do just that. We'll show you how to disable OnePlus Shelf and enable notification gestures on your new OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro.

How to enable notification pane pull-down gesture on OnePlus 9/9 Pro

  1. Press down firmly on your OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro's home screen.
  2. Tap on Home settings.

  3. Tap on Swipe down to access.
  4. Toggle off the Enable switch to disable the gesture entirely.
  5. Alternatively, you can leave the gesture enabled, but tap on the Notifications & Quick Settings radio button to change from the Shelf.

That's all there is to it! If you want to go back, you can just repeat the same steps as above, but tap on the Shelf radio button. Personally, I found it disorienting and distracting to invoke the OnePlus Shelf when holding the phone one-handed accidentally. Because it's such a large phone, I found the Notifications & Quick Settings gesture ideal for accessing the things that I needed from the top of the screen without using two hands or uncomfortably stretching my hand. It pretty much alleviates my needs for a one-handed or reachability mode, sense typically what I'm trying to get at from the top of the screen are my notifications and settings.

If you haven't yet decided between the OnePlus 9 and the 9 Pro, you really can't go wrong with either, though after spending a few weeks with the regular OnePlus 9, I can honestly say that it's one of the best value flagships of the year to date. Once your new device is in hand, be sure to check out these other tips and tricks to get it set up. For example, in step two of that guide, we show you how you can customize the OnePlus Shelf to display information relevant to you, like where you parked, your most frequently-used apps, or store loyalty cards.

The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are two of 2021's best Android phones, and while the cameras and screen on the 9 Pro are amazing, the better choice for many just might be the regular 9.

Apple Says 128GB iPhone 15 Pro Limited to 1080p ProRes Video Recording Unless External Storage Connected

ProRes video recording remains limited to 1080p quality at 30 frames per second on the 128GB model of the iPhone 15 Pro, unless the device is recording directly to a connected external storage drive , according to Apple. On the 256GB and higher iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, ProRes video recording is supported in up to 4K quality at 60 frames per second to both internal storage and external storage. Apple does not mention this information on the iPhone 15 Pro's tech specs page on its website, but the limitation is listed when comparing the iPhone 15 Pro to another iPhone model in the Apple Store app, as seen in the screenshot below. The same limitation applied to iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro models with 128GB of storage, but those devices cannot record ProRes video to external storage, so at least iPhone 15 Pro users have that option this time around. The limitation does not apply to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, as that model starts with 256GB of storage. ProRes video fi
