How to Free up your iPhone and Android Phone full space?

"Follow these steps to keeps your storage free and your phone fresh!"

How much room does your phone have left on it? Whenever you attempt to upgrade your Apps or add new applications, do you touch a wall? In order to free up space, what's the best way to transfer files that you want to keep? And how do you make good choices on what to retain and what to delete? Follow these steps to keeps your storage free and your phone fresh!

Back up your phone to the cloud

backup-files

If you don't have the time or stamina to sift through old images and videos, or if you want to save all your media files, back them up to a cloud storage service and uninstall those on your phone that you don't want offline. You can opt to have your images automatically backed up anytime you have access to WiFi through cloud storage providers like Dropbox, so you can have a full-resolution backup.

If you are using an iPhone, the procedure is automatic if the iCloud automatic backup feature is allowed (Go to Settings > Apple ID > iCloud > Photos and switch to iCloud Images. Then pick Optimize iPhone Storage. This stores your photos on your phone in a reduced resolution version and in iCloud at maximum resolution. Then go to Settings > Photos > Cellular Data and turn off Cellular Data and Unlimited Updates.

Consider Google Photos for Android and iPhone devices, which can be set up to conveniently back up photos and videos via Wi-Fi.

Make sure that you pick Original as the picture quality to preserve full-resolution images. Go to Settings > Backup & Sync > Upload size > and choose Original. Google Photos also has a Free Up Space option that eliminates photos from the cloud that you already have backed up.

Back up your phone locally

local-backup

Back-up your files on your computer to avoid the cost and drawbacks of cloud storage. Of course, the downside is that when you have access to your device with a wired or wireless network, you can just do this.

If you own an iPhone and a Mac, you can save backups of your media files on your Mac via iTunes, iPhoto, the Photos app, or the Image Capture app. See the step-by-step instructions from Apple for how to go about it. AirDrop can also be used to transfer files without the need to connect your phone with a USB cable to your device. Apple has an instruction page on how to do so.

You can also use iTunes if you use a Windows PC; the measures differ according to the version of Windows.

Link your phone to your machine with a USB cable if you have an Android phone. You should be capable of detecting your phone as a mass storage or media storage unit on your Windows computer and you will be able to drag and drop your images and videos from your phone to your PC folder. Install the free Android File Transfer app on your Mac if you have a Mac, then you can then drag and drop onto your Mac.

Remove old attachments for emails and downloaded files

Although being able to read papers attached to your email and see pictures in your chat app is fantastic, you often don't need to keep them long-term. Finding and removing these old files is easy.

Go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage for iPhone. You can see options for turning on Auto Delete Old Conversations and checking large videos and attachments to emails. Click "Show All" next to Suggestions if you do not see these choices.

Open your app tray for Android, and pick the Downloads app. To uninstall a file, tap and hold the file, then press Delete.

Uninstall applications that are not used by you

delete-apps

Although images and videos are the normal storage hogs, storage space can also be consumed by apps (particularly games). Removing applications that you don't use much is safest.

On your iPhone, go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage . You can see a list of applications sorted by the volume of room available for storage. You'll have the option to uninstall it when you pick an app. Or in order to uninstall the app and all its info, you can long-tap the app's icon and tap the X overlay. You may also opt to offload any applications you haven't used in a while automatically. Go to Settings > iTunes & App Stores, then move to Offload Unused App. In the event that you wish to restart the software at a future date, this will uninstall the app but leave the data behind.

Go to Settings > Storage > Free up your room on Android. Tap the empty box on the right to pick an app to uninstall it and then tap Free Up.

Add space to your phone

memory-card

Invest in a microSD card and transfer some of the data from your phone's built-in storage if you buy an Android phone with a memory card expansion slot. You will use a file manager program to transfer files around. Most phones come with file managers of their own. Download an ES File Manager if yours doesn't, or if you want a more versatile app (free in Google Play). You can also buy an optical drive that you can plug directly into the microSD and USB device of your device.

You can't connect a memory card to your iPhone, so you can buy a flash drive to insert the images into your iPhone or iPad and plug them into your device. 

 

Shoot videos with a lower quality

low-quality.

Many of the higher-end phones today will record 4K resolution images. These high-resolution images, particularly if you watch them on a 4K-capable TV or computer, are smoother and have finer info. But video with a higher resolution takes up a lot of disk space than video in HD or full HD. To conserve disk space, set your camera to record images at a lower resolution if you don't need 4K footage.

Make space savings a routine

To spare yourself from the annoyance of running out of room at moments when you need it most, clear out space on your mobile daily. Keep lean and mean, so you're ready at a moment's notice to appreciate the features on your handset.

How to text from your computer with Android Messages

27th February 2021
"Google android messages from web."

Google has the ability to text from the web with Android Messages. The feature gives users a lot more flexibility in choosing how and where they can carry on conversations. As long as your Android smartphone is powered on, you can text from a desktop computer or even other mobile devices — including iOS products like an iPad if you just open up Safari. Aside from text, you can also send emoji, stickers, and images over the web.

Using Android Messages on the web requires using Android Messages as your main texting app on your phone. I like it just fine, and Google is clearly planning big things for the future, but if you prefer, say, Samsung’s default messages app or something else, the two don’t work together.

With that out of the way, getting started and setting things up is fairly simple.

Make sure you’ve got the latest version of Android Messages installed on your phone.

Go to messages.android.com on the computer or other device you want to text from. You’ll see a big QR code on the right side of this page.

Open up Android Messages on your smartphone. Tap the icon with three vertical dots at the top and to the far right. You should see a “Messages for web” option inside this menu.

Tap “QR code scanner” and point your phone’s camera at the QR code on your other device. In less than a second, your phone will vibrate, and the two will be linked up. You should notice your conversations show up in the left column of the browser window. Google says that “conversation threads, contacts, and other settings will be encrypted and cached on your browser.”

Note: this doesn’t mean your actual text conversations are encrypted. They’re not.

And that’s it. To make sure you don’t have to repeat the QR process, you can keep your computer paired with your phone by enabling “Remember this computer.” There will probably be a pop-up asking if you want to enable that the first time you use the web version of Messages. If you missed it, just go to the settings menu, which you can access from the web version of Android Messages by clicking on the three-dot icon to the right of “Messages.” (Of course, you shouldn’t turn this on if you’re using a public PC that other people can easily access.)

WHICH BROWSERS WORK WITH ANDROID MESSAGES ON THE WEB?

Chrome
Firefox
Microsoft Edge
Safari

REMOVE A COMPUTER’S ACCESS TO YOUR MESSAGES

If you want to revoke a web browser’s access to your conversations and messaging, you can quickly do so from your Android smartphone. Go back to the “Messages for web” area of Android Messages, and you can choose to sign out of individual computers or all of them with a click.

THERE’S A DARK MODE!

Dark themes can be handy if you find that all an app’s whites and light grays might overload your eyeballs at night. If you want to enable the Messages dark theme on mobile, tap the same icon with three vertical dots and looking for “Choose theme.” You can go with light, dark, or the system default.

On the web app, you’ll find “Enable dark theme” in the menu that you get after clicking on the three-dot icon to the right of “Messages.

KEEP YOUR PHONE POWERED ON

Android Messages on the web can’t work independently of your smartphone. So if your battery dies or if your phone shuts off for any reason, you won’t be able to send any texts from your computer.

DRAG MEDIA INTO THE ANDROID MESSAGES CONVERSATION

Sending a photo from Android Messages on the web is dead simple. You can either use the attachments icon — to the right of emoji and stickers — or just drag and drop media into the conversation window to send an MMS.

25th February 2021
"Customers buying AirPods or other Apple products like Apple Pencil (2nd generation), iPad, and iPod touch from the Apple store can get their products customized by getting personal messages engraved on them at no additional cost."

Apple recently launched the online Apple Store in India. Apple now gives the option to Indian customers shopping from the Apple Store to personalize products by getting text or emojis engraved on them at no additional cost.

Apple also unveiled Apple One bundled subscriptions in India in October. Apple gives six services under the Apple One subscription such as Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and iCloud. The Apple Fitness+ powered by Apple Watch will be available later in 2020.

How to prevent premature aging?

27th February 2021
"Beat the wrinkles and glow with younger-looking skin."

Among several skin problems, premature aging is one faced by several women. Many factors are causing premature aging- may be hereditary or intrinsic factors or external factors such as your environment and lifestyle. We cannot influence the intrinsic factors ti to slow the process of aging but the external factors can be influenced. 

--GoogleAdsReviews--

Protect from sun

Sun is a significant enemy for your skin as one of the major external factors that cause premature aging. So, you must protect yourself from the sun either by covering up or staying in shade. Do not let your bare skin get exposed to the sun as far as possible. While going out, you can wear full-sleeve clothes, sunscreen with broad-spectrum i.e  SPF 30 (or more), wear shades, carry an umbrella, or you may also wear clothing with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) label. 

Don't smoke or drink

Smoking escalates the rate we age making our skin dull and sallow. Alcohol, on the other hand, dehydrates our skin and slowly damages our skin. As a result, we look older at a younger age. So, avoid smoking or drinking as it is bad for your skin as well as your health. 

Have a balanced diet

An unhealthy diet always affects you negatively. You should try to avoid sugar and excessive carbohydrates in your diet to have glowing young skin. Moreover, adding juicy fruits and green veggies to your diet can help your skin to a great extent. 

Avoid same facial expressions

As you make a facial expression, your facial muscles contract. Contracting the same muscles for a longer period of time can cause fine lines and wrinkles in your skin making you look older for your age. So, try to avoid some kind of facial expressions. Also, you can wear shades while traveling on a sunny day to avoid squinting. 

Wash your face often

Wash your face at least twice a day. Like any form of dirt from, your face is washed off, you get a younger looking glowing skin. 

Apply moisturizer

Hydrating your skin is really essential for you to avoid premature aging. As moisturizer traps the water inside the skin, you look younger and beautiful 

Do not use skin products that burn

The kind of skincare products you use can make a huge impact on aging. You must know the kind of skin products that suits your skin. Avoid the use of skin products that burns and irritates your skin. Skin irritation makes you look older.
