View full websites in iOS browser
Enter the complete details of the tip you want to share.
This tip is helpful when you are visiting a website on your mobile browser. Certain websites do not allow you to view the full website when not viewing the page in that respective website's app from App Store and will prompt you to download the app in order to continue use. For example, www.yelp.com. and Facebook messenger. I find this trick helpful when I do not want to download the app in order to use and I want to remain on my phone's browser. When you visit the website in question, find the "share" button on your iOS browser and click on it. Options will pop up and so you want to click on "Request Desktop Site." This will then prompt your browser to allow you to browse the website in its entirety and I am even able to send facebook messages without using the Messenger or Facebook App.

Secure Your IPhone Passcode
Enter the complete details of the tip you want to share.
Rather than using the typical 4-digit or 6-digit passcode, you can make sure your IPhone is even more secure by using an alphanumeric passcode. An alphanumeric code allows the usage of both letters and numbers in the formation of a custom passcode. Thus, the use of an alphanumeric code allows for a nearly unlimited number of possible combinations.
This minor setting adjustment is simple to accomplish. First open the 'Settings' app on your IOS device. From there, tap the 'Touch ID and Passcode' option, followed by 'Change Passcode'.  Once given the opportunity to submit a new passcode, tap 'Passcode Options' located above the keypad. In doing so, you will be offered further options for your passcode customization. From these options, select the 'Custom Alphanumeric Code' option, and enter your own custom code.

If you are sick of picking up your phone when your friend's phone is ringing because you have the same ring tone then you should probably set your favorite song as your ring tone by downloading this app and follow easy instructions. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ringtones-for-iphone/id1036141497?mt=8

Have you ever run out of your data and been in an area with no wifi or service and wondered where you were, perhaps you should download the maps of the area you plan on going to by using Google Maps to use it offline. Just go to Google Maps, search a city or simply pin a point on the maps, scroll up and select download. You can also zoom in or out to download a bigger or smaller portion of the maps.
