Google Calendar

Keeping your calendars synced between multiple devices is a great way to make sure you never miss important events like anniversaries, business meetings, book club events and so on. Your Google Calendar (or Yahoo, etc.) can now easily be added to the Calendar app on your iPhone or iPad. First you will need a Google account.

What are the videos listed in 'Review Downloaded Videos' on my iPhone?

Review Downloaded Videos

Apple introduced personalized recommendations on how iPhone users can increase their storage in iOS 11. If you navigate to Settings > General > iPhone Storage you will see suggestions on how to better manage storage on your device. Using your own data on what's actually clogging up your iPhone is much better than using generic tips and tricks you may have read on the internet. The Recommendations section will typically include tabs like "Review Large Attachments" or "Offload Unused Apps." Some users may notice their recommendations include a "Review Downloaded Videos" option.
