One of the best things about AirPods is keeping your iPhone stowed away in a pocket or bag. Between Siri and tap gestures, the AirPods can handle many common tasks. Incoming calls can interrupt music and podcasts, but even worse- the iPhone must come out to see who's calling. However, there's a way around this first-world problem.
Being able to track and limit your own iPhone usage is a great feature, but Apple's Screen Time lacks the right tools for parents to properly manage their children's usage. Instead of extending Screen Time to third-party apps so parents can set limits for individual apps, Apple has added "Communication Limits" in iOS 13. Parents can now control who their children can communicate with on their iOS device.
Apple has set up an official iPhone 7 Repair Program for devices with "No Service" issues. The problem is affecting a small percentage of iPhone 7 models, which sometimes show "No Service" in the status bar despite good cellular coverage in the area.
The iPhone can read almost anything on the screen aloud. With Speak Screen, iOS will read a web page or book in the background, even while another app is being used. Reading controls are conveniently located in a pop-up Accessibility menu, which minimizes automatically.
Good news for fans of Apple and gaming. The Apple TV, iPhone and iPad can be used directly with Xbox One or PlayStation Dualshock 4 controllers. Bluetooth support for both controllers is included with tvOS 13, iOS 13, and iPadOS. Once your device(s) are updated, pairing an existing controller to use for supported apps and games takes place under Settings.
