    What are the iOS default camera settings?

    I'm trying to find what the default, out-of-the-box settings are for Camera in the Settings app, but so far am having no luck. Does anybody know what these are or how I can find them without doing a reset?

    HomeKit Philips Hue and Apple Home App No Longer Sync with Each Other?

    I used to be able to make changes in the Apple Home app (changing the name of a room for example) and the Philips Hue app would give the option to sync changes. Since the latest Hue app overhaul it seems this is no longer the case. Can anyone else confirm?

    Why No Lens Correction Setting for Wide Camera?

    Settings > Camera > Lens Correction ”Correct lens distortion on the front and ultra wide cameras.” It would be convenient if this setting also applied to the wide camera. Any thoughts as to why it’s not? Perhaps the difference isn’t noticeable enough. I always apply lens corrections in LR...

    Some questions about using solely HomeKit to manage my ecobee thermostat as opposed to the ecobee app: 1. Do I need to keep the ecobee app installed on my device? 2. I can remove everything from my ecobee app schedule except sleep, which appears as an all-day event. Will this conflict with...

    Having only bought the S4 less than 5 months ago, I had no intention of upgrading to S5. However I was then surprised by the Always On screen and this week also won a competition which would cover almost 60% of the cost of the S5 with the sale of the S4 making up the rest . . . so it’s decision...
