    Passcode screen--any way to turn it black?

    I often read ebooks in the middle of the night, in a pitch black room. Unfortunately, the passcode screen comes up as a bright light-grey rather than black. Is there any way of changing that? It's a pre-Touch ID device, so I have to use the passcode. I've explored changing some of the...

    iPad Pro iPad Pro 11" (2018) Bright Spot on Display? Will it get worse?

    I bought an iPad Pro 11" on the cheap on eBay, and it came with a big dent on the back and a bright spot on the display. I got it for such a good price ($250) that I'm willing to accept these tradeoffs. Attached are photos of these two defects. However, I'm curious if anyone has seen these...

    I have an approx 1in spot on my iPad Pro screen which is brighter than the rest of the screen - it's unevenly lit. The spot is about 2in above the home button, and although it has soft edges, I'm anal about my gadgets, and the difference in brightness could be described as 'minor', it's clearly...

    Netflix Original Movie "Bright"

    Did anybody else catch this yet? Both me and the wife really dug it. We kind of thought it was a nice melding of genres and we both really liked the cop who was also Orc. I won't go into to many spoilers, yet... From my understanding the budget was pretty big for this so hopefully it pays...
