    iPhone 14/Plus iPhone 15 or 14plus?

    Hi, I bought an iPhone 15 back in October of 2023. Base model in pink. I guess i don’t vibe with the color that much, and the size. I really want a bigger phone (I came from a fairly large Samsung s20 FE). My dream has been to get a white phone for a long time. If the iPhone 15s came in white I...

Write a random string into a search field in your browser app, like HelloTest:12345 - make sure the letters before the colon are mixed upper case 2. Cut out that whole string and paste...

    iPad Safari Back button/swipe not responding

    For the last week or so, i‘ve been having a pretty annoying time trying to get Safari to go back a page. It takes a long time to decide that it won’t go back but instead reload the current page. Or it reloads the current page sooner. It’s one or the other, but it hardly goes back. The only way...
