How do I turn off Reachability on the iPhone 6 Plus?

I’m glad I came across this. I’ve had the damn screen bouncing up and down since I got this iPhone 6 and thought it was a bug. I knew of reachability but thought it was for the 6 Plus only so I never looked into whether what I was experiencing was that.

This might be useful for some but I question whether it should be enabled by default. I seriously thought it was some sort of bug and was waiting with each iOS release for it to be fixed.

How do I turn off Reachability on the iPhone 6 Plus?

That was a great question and I’m glad to know how to disable it. I find that Reachability on the 6 Plus is useless because of phone’s size and perfect balance. The home button is so far down that it’s harder to reach than the top of the screen because the human thumb simply doesn’t bend like that.

Ten Things You Didn't Know About Apple's HomeKit

One more thing:
Unlike other annoying MFi protocol, HomeKit device can be supported without manufacturers ask for a MFi chip.
There’s only a warning sign when registering the device, but it’s unlikely for Apple to ban non-MFi HomeKit device. (It requires them banning all developers write HomeKit apps)
So, taps long as the device can be mapped with HomeKit service types (light/fan/thermostat/camera/microphone/garage door/door lock/switch)
any firmware update for HomeKit is possible.

Ten Things You Didn't Know About Apple's HomeKit

Just for 2:
You could dim the light with HomeKit and Siri. (At least with iOS 8.1)
In iOS 8.2, you can still change brightness with direct command like “set the light to 50)

(I’ve been using HomeKit to control my light since October. I know what I can do with it. )

Ten Things You Didn't Know About Apple's HomeKit

I saw a video where the person from Chamberlain said that their existing remote garage door would be homekit compatible when a firmware update was released later this year. This is contrary to #9.

Hands-on with CarPlay at CES 2015

I am impressed.
Thats exactly the device, i am waiting for since years:
Not another bunch of devices and apps for the car, but (simply) reuse the best (and best known) device and only improve the direct interaction with it : fix mounting, big screen, good readability (size, contrast, ...).
Two questions remain:
1. How about the sensors like microphone ( for phone and siri ) and GPS SENSOR for Nav ? Is there a connection to use external devices ?
2. pioneer is selling a CarPlay product AppRadio SPH-DA120. Is this the described product above or is it another new one .

Exchange text messages between two iPhones with no cellular data plan

I also set this up for my son. He is able to text me from my old iPhone 4s (no plan). Basically it’s like using an iPod Touch. Does anyone know how to setup FaceTime in a similar fashion? I would like to be able to FaceTime with my son while he is on a Wifi network.

I am an AT&T customer so I’m assuming I can FaceTime using data or Wifi.

Last-Minute Holiday Gift Guide for 2014

Wow. Great List! Thanks! How would you compare the Infinity speaker to the UE Boom? Price is similar but I haven’t heard much about the infinity, and the UE is on a lot of top 10 lists.

I also have the Devicewear Ridge on my iPad Air 2. Its like the skinny pro look, but looks a bit thinner/lighter and offers more stand angles and a typing angle. But now I wish it had that sexy angle on the back like the skinny pro.

Instant Expert: Secrets & Features of iTunes 12

I had to rebuild my PC and I lost all my playlists. But I still have them on my IPod. A lot of the music was from my own CD collection. How can I safely transfer what’s on my IPod back into my PC in this version of ITunes? I surfed around for 15 minutes but can’t find a way to do this.

Instant Expert: Secrets & Features of iOS 8.1

Up until I purchased an iPhone 5, I rarely had battery problems. Suddenly, with the iPhone 5 I was constantly searching for plugs, so I upgraded to the S because it was supposed to have a better battery—no noticeable difference. I bought a Moshi battery case and never had to worry about battery issues again. I upgraded to the 6 and I swear the battery is worse than either the 5 or 5s. I hate to buy another clunky battery case for the super thin and sleek 6. Why doesn’t Apple place a higher priority on battery life. I wish a site, such as iLounge, would run a survey structured to determine how users would prefer Apple prioritize various features with a rundown on the features describing their impact on size and weight. We need a respected means of being heard on these issues.

What's New in iTunes 12

I’ve asked why they removed the cover view window as now its nearly impossible to see quickly if a file has a picture or not. Before you just chose the file and it showed up in the cover view window. Now you have to open the file, goto the cover view and check manually.
I’m really thinking of deleting iTunes 11 and downgrade to iTunes 10 as thats the last of the good iTunes.

iLounge's Top iPhone 6 + iPhone 6 Plus Case Picks (Fall 2014)

After having used the iPhone 6 Plus Griffin Survivor All-terrain for about a week, and I disagree with part of your review when you say it makes the device hard to hold. I’ve found the exact opposite. I feel as if the grip is much improved.  I agree about pocket ability, however, in jeans it’s not a real issue.

With my iOS 8.1 on iPhone 5s pictures sent by iMessage a revert to unedited form. Also, many pictures are now blurry. Any ideas on what to do to fix this?

What's New in iTunes 12

If you are referring to the mini player, then just click the artwork on the left of the now playing window.

I don’t have access to my iMac at the moment, so can’t give exact details, but I know that this can then be reduced further, removing, the artwork, by clicking something within the mini-player.

What's New in iTunes 12

I have tried repeatedly to get a response from Apple support (with no luck) about why they took away the “view all” feature from the Wish List.  Had a lot of items saved there but now cannot view anything beyond the latest selections.  What’s the point of having a wish list if you cannot see all the items saved to it?!?

What's New in iTunes 12

#17 TW - is it any use to edit Description Field directly, instead of going through Get Info ?  You can edit it directly, albeit only one tune at a time it seems.

What's New in iTunes 12

Getting album art is much less convenient in 12.  Can’t seem to copy and paste from the web directly into info anymore.  Have to download the image then add it from your computer. 

Also wish the pop-out player would allow for much larger sizing, if not whole screen.  Why not ?
