iOS 11 Dark Mode: How Do You Go About Using it?

Published by:

The upcoming iOS 11 promises to be the best and the most advanced operating systems ever designed, or at least as far as Apple is concerned. It has a lot of nips and tucks which make it a joy to use, as we have been doing over the last few weeks after the developers’ and public betas released. One of our most loved features is the iOS 11 dark mode, often also referred to as the iOS 11 night mode. We will guide you through why you need it and how you go about using it.

iOS 11 Dark Mode: Why Use It?

First of all, we must know what exactly a dark/night mode is. It is basically a state where the white areas of the display are turned to black or darkened. Also, some colors which are extremely bright are muted. This gives the impression of the dark mode and is useful in various situations. For example, if you are in a darkened movie theatre, and you must attend to a very important call, you will have to attend to your phone. This, however, will affect your fellow moviegoers, who might even get offended. To keep such incidents at bay, you must use the new iOS 11 dark mode. Also, such a mode is useful for saving some part of your battery life and will also give your eyes some rest.

iOS 11 Dark Mode: How To Activate it

These are the steps which you can use to activate the dark mode on iOS 11.

  • First, go to Settings on your device which is iOS 11 enabled. Then, you must navigate to General. Tap on it.
  • Find an option which says Accessibility. Tap on it.
  • Next, tap on Display Accommodations.
  • You are nearly there. Now, tap on Invert Colors.
  • Under the Invert Colors option, you will find two further options. One says Classic Invert while another says Smart Invert. The Classic Invert version was already present on the iOS platform and is not a true dark mode. Under this option, the colors are changed back to their complementary colors like when blue is turned to magenta and so on. On the other hand, the Smart Invert option, as the name suggests, is the more recent one. It is also better at what it does. You must now choose the Smart Invert option.
  • There will be a switch next to Smart InvertToggle it and your iOS 11 dark mode is ready to use.

Wrap Up

In the end, we simply ask that in case you have any questions or queries pertaining to the iOS 11 dark mode, just keep watching this space for more updates about the same.


iOS 11 OS Expected to Feature an Upgraded Map Application

Published by:

The operating system iOS has been receiving great responses since 2007 as the original one was launched that year itself. And since then it has been competing with Android and Windows. For some users the Android and the Windows OS stand out but maximum of them prefer iOS because of all the favorable features that it provides.

The updates which came up along with the iOS 10 was actually appreciated by half of the users. The 3D touch which was introduced through the iOS 10 looked extremely fascinating while the major update in the photo section grabbed the attention of almost all the users. People could make adorable and memorable photo stories out of it by tapping on memories. And the best one was the addition of digital messages as people could send great digital messages to their contact list. Even Siri was made compatible with all the apps which fall under the category of third party.

Therefore, the iOS 10 emerged successful just like its predecessors. And now the users are waiting for their devices to get upgraded, therefore, they just can’t wait to download iOS 11 on their devices. Most of the versions of iOS has been rolled out in September due to which most of the people are anticipating that the American technology giant might roll out the iOS 11 also during the month of September this year. Siri might get compatible with all the apps which fall under the category of third party but that doesn’t mean that the users are not expecting anything else with the iOS 11. Therefore, a great update in the Siri is predicted from the user’s end this time. The AI assistant by Apple is surely the greatest feature and now reports say that the developers are planning to equip a smarter Siri which will come along with the iOS 11.

Apart from getting compatible with the apps which fall under the category of third party apps, it has been said that the users would now want to see Siri supporting even the other applications which would make the life of the users even more easier.

Virtual reality is another feature which the tech fanatics are looking forward in most of the devices of today’s time, and now. The iOS 10 didn’t come up with that particular feature for the devices but this the upcoming iOS 11 is predicted to sport the virtual reality feature.

Now coming to the most talked about feature which is predicted to come up with the iOS 11 Beta is the facility of an upgraded Map application. Therefore, the users may get fresh data regarding the locations which would turn out to be extremely convenient.

A feature of Dark Mode might also come up with the upcoming operating system by iOS which would help the users to sooth their eyes. The Dark Mode feature basically means that the screens of the devices would be dark and it will be of great help when one will use their iPhones during the night.

However, the iOS 11 is anticipated to bear some of the most innovative and greatest features.

iPad Air 3: A More Affordable iPad?

Published by:

Apple isn’t good at updating some of their product lineups, for instance – the Mac Pro was last released on 2013 which is 4 years ago. The delay has already caused Apple to face a whole lot of social media outrage, also the comparison between Mac Pro and a trash can isn’t new. The iPad Air 2 is in a better position than the Mac Pro we should say, it was released in 2014 and also the design isn’t like a trash can either. Apple seems to have moved on with the iPad Pro, but some current rumors suggest otherwise – Apple is planning to release an iPad Air 3 which would be an affordable Apple device in 9.7 inch display form factor.


When is the iPad Air 3 due?

Speaking of due, it is in fact long overdue since March 2015 – that’s when an iPad Air 3 should have come out on the 1 year anniversary. Apple iPads usually arrive during or after March every year. However, some chip problems have been reported and due to that, some tech pundits have estimated a possible delay in the next iPad unveiling and shipment. If Apple can’t release an iPad Air 3 by March or April of this year, the release event might get shifted towards September and might even be merged with the iPhone unveiling event.


iPad Air lineup has always been equipped with a 9.7 inch display. There are 7.9 inch and 12.9 inch tablets in different iPad ranges, but none of them are Air. Therefore, we may safely assume that if there’s an Air 3 tablet from Apple, it is more likely to have a 9.7 inch display with Apple’s signature Retina resolution for iPads 1536×2048 pixels. The world is moving on with 4K but Apple bluntly refuses to even put more pixels in their iPhone models.


To distinguish the iPad Air 3 from the iPad Pro, there should be prominent design marks all around on the tablet body. Thickness might reduce a little bit. The chassis is going to be made of aluminum that’s for sure as using glass for a tablet would be a massive mistake. 240×169.5×6.1 is a possible dimension for the iPad Air 3; and the weight should be no more than 500 grams otherwise the name ‘Air’ would make no real sense.

An IP67 water & dust resistance may be added to the iPad Air 3, for a more rugged approach to using this tablet. Removal of headphone jack is a possibility, same goes for the home button. The button would stay but might be replaced with the all new iPhone 7 button with haptic engine underneath.


The previous generation had a 7,340 mAh battery, we expect a similar capacity on the new iPad Air 3 as well. Some squeezing might be necessary, depending on the design.


To make the iPad Air 3 a truly acceptable model to the Apple user community, Apple needs to reduce the price tag. At least, a different iPad model should serve different purpose than the existing iPad lineups.

iPAD AIR 3 release date and wishlist

Published by:

As soon as the iPad air 2 launched last year in October we somehow knew that there is going to be a successor to it. And ever since the iOS 10 was announced, the countdown to the iPad 3 had begun. It was very obvious that a new OS would require a new powerful processor which leads us to a new iPad. And this is the iPad air 3 which we all have been waiting for.


So the most likely launch date for the iPad air 3 is in October this very year, although some of the rumors point towards an early launch which might or might not be true, we will know once the device is launched.

Last time Apple tweaked the design of the iPad Air 1 rather than totally reimagining it. The already slim device was trimmed down to 6.1 mm thickness which was the iPad 2. The iPad 2 is the slimmest, slenderest tablet. Now that we know about the iPad 3, is it going to get any slimmer?

Indeed the successive reductions in depth from generation to generation mean the iPad Air 2 reached a milestone. The question is will Apple be able to repeat the same trick for the third generation device?

But then again it seems unnecessary, isn’t it? How much lighter would you want a tablet? Because the iPad Air 2 is already delicate enough that makes us not so sure about its toughness if any more of the body was trimmed off.

There are great chances of the iPad 3 to be bigger than the previous tabs. Probably make a 9.7 inch tab. Huge huh?

It is expected for the iPad Air 3 to be available in three color options: silver, space grey and gold.

Every year we come across rumors that the next iPad will be available in the bright primary colors of the iPhone 7 and every year the people expecting the same get disappointed. We do not expect the iPad Air 3 to be particularly brightly colorful except for the lovely fancy gold finish.

The older iPads have got a processor chip upgrade. Apple pointed out that the iPad 2 is capable  of up to 12 times faster processing than the iPad Air 1 and a staggering 180 times faster graphics!

The iPad 3 overall is expected to be bigger probably not any more slimmer but way faster.

Published by:


 iPad Air 2 is the latest and smartest iPad launched by Apple. It is the best tablet flagship presented by Apple till now. Apple released this advance iPad in October 2014. It’s faster and thinner. Obviously its Apple product, it is little expensive than its competitors. iPad Air 2 has impressive features and specifications that can justify its price easily.


Check below detail review of iPad Air 2.


iPad Air 2 is pretty much alike its predecessor i.e iPad Air 1. But iPad Air 2 is slimmer and thinner than iPad Air 1. It is so thin than can be passed below hotel room door. Obviously there was little cost to make it that slimmer and that was battery. Well to be honest, iPad Air 2 looks more charming and beautiful than iPad Air 1. It is little fragile than previous version. But don’t be afraid it is not gonna bend with use. Apple is known for its quality work. They make stylish products but not at the cost of hardware. Other features like volume buttons and sockets etc are in same place like iPad Air 1.


We got no doubt about its streamline touch interface. Working on iPad Air 2’s interface is much faster than that of Air 1. It comes with preinstalled iOS 8 – 8.1.3. As iOS 9 has been released by Apple, so iPad Air 2 users can easily update their iPads to iOS 9. There are thousands of apps available on Apple store for iPad. But usability of iPad Air 2 is really great. Flipping from one screen to another has never been so faster before.


Screen of both versions of iPad Air is alike. Just little tweaks have been made in screen of iPad Air 2. First thing Apple did to iPad Air 2 is removing air gaps between screen layers. Secondly, anti reflection has made display of iPad Air 2 just absolutely great. Now reflections can be manipulated and ignore easily.


The real tweak Apple did to iPad Air 2 was its rear facing camera. Yes camera has been updated from 5 mega pixels to 8 mega pixels. Now pictures clicked with iPad Air 2 are more detailed and good in quality.

Touch ID:

Well this is not that much important advancement. But it is real treat for touch ID maniacs. Yes Apple added finger print scanner in home button of iPad Air 2. Now you can unlock your iPad or Apps with this print scanner. Moreover you can make online transactions with the help of this finger print scanner.

iOs 8.2 Jailbreak – how to do i

Published by:


Everyone has idea about the security and restriction of iOS devices. We can only download applications and perform actions which iOS allows. Jailbreaking is technique to exploit any bug or flaw in this iOS. As a result, we can have access to iOS root files and manager. In this way we can download additional applications that were not possible to install before jailbreaking.


A special term privilege escalation has been given to jailbreaking. It is like breaking the device from its own jail. Some users think that with jailbreak , their device won’t work normally. But that’s not true. Your iOS device can work normally even with jailbreak. If you will restore your device with iTunes, jailbreak installed on your device will get removed.

Apple released iOS 8.2 in March 2015. So hackers all around the world are trying to find any bug in iOS 8.2. For version iOS 8.1.3, there was jailbreak. But Apple is so smart, they used Taig JailBreak iOS 8.1.3 as a source of security vulnerability, as a result they fixed bugs on iOS 8.1.3. So you can say that iOS 8.1.3 is unjailbreakable. iOS 8.2 is the extension of iOS 8.1.3, so iOS 8.2 is also unjailbreakable right now.

Jailbreak experts have warned users to stay away from updates. If they are older versions with jailbreak installed, they should not install any newer update. Otherwise they won’t be able to jailbreak their device anymore.

Apple devices are so cool and smart, but users have complaints about iOS restrictions. So with release of iOs 8.2, users are awaiting for the jailbreal iOS 8.2. Right now, there is no official update about release of jailbreak iOS 8.2.

As per source, TaiG who were responsible for jailbreak for iOS 8.1 have made jailbreak for iOS 8.2  beta 1 and 2. But Apple has closed access to beta 1 and 2 since then. Newer betas have been released for iOS 8.2. Interestingly Apple has not fixed bugs for beta 1 and 2. So users should be optimistic as jailbreak experts are trying hard to jailbreak iOS 8.2.

According to TaiG website, they have stated that they completed untethered jailbreak for iOs 8.2. Obviously they are not gonna disclose the bugs they found in iOS 8.2. Otherwise Apple will fix them and iOS 8.2 will no longer jailbreakable.

So question is whether you should install iOS 8.2 update or not. Simple answer is that if you want iOS with jailbreak then don’t do it until jailbreak iOS 8.2 is released.
