In an age where we've become accustomed to ordering any and everything we want online and having it delivered to our doorsteps in a ridiculously short amount of time, our furry companions have not been forgotten. There are plenty of services that will deliver food for your dog or cat (or guinea pig, hamster, gerbil, snake, lizard, fish, bird etc.). While only a handful of the larger operations have mobile apps, there are plenty of quality pet food stores that can be found online using Safari on your iPhone or iPad.
Businesses large and small have been coming together to help lessen the economic blow of the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies such as Amazon, eBay and Walmart have banned together to eliminate price gouging, and ISPs like AT&T and Comcast are suspending data caps and offering affordable internet access to low income Americans.
Apple also announced that it will allow Apple Card owners who need assistance to defer their March payment without incurring any interest charges. Apple Card users only need to contact Card Support via Messages to enroll in the Customer Assistance Program. Apple has sent out emails to Apple Card holders detailing the new program.
Smartphones are notoriously dirty. Studies show a typical cell phone can have more bacteria on its surface than a toilet. Preventing the spread of infection has taken on new importance with the novel coronavirus, COVID-19 sweeping the globe. Disinfecting your iPhone is an important preventive measure to reduce the risk of infection from bacteria and viruses that linger on your mobile device. Proper hand washing may be the first line of defense, but a clean phone can be just as important.
iPhone apps such as Weather normally use local units to display temperature. While most of the world uses the Celsius scale, there are notable exceptions such as the United States. In these places, iOS uses the Fahrenheit scale automatically. For anyone more familiar with degrees centigrade, or interested in seeing temperatures in °C, switching units only takes a few taps.
Ever notice that Hey Siri does not respond when the iPhone is face-down on a table? In fact, this can happen in a pocket, bag, or any situation where the front of the iPhone is covered up. This is a feature of iOS, which shuts off Hey Siri automatically when the iPhone is face-down. Placing the device in this position is the quickest way to disable Hey Siri at any time.
