iOS 11 is wonderful, but some of its changes, like hiding auto brightness, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on and off, may annoy you. Sometimes you can find some new snazzy effects and transitions in iOS 11, such as the way that the Home Page appears to zoom into view when you close an app or when you unlock your iPhone. You’ll probably find annoying.
Here is how you can go about fixing them.
Videos Auto-Play In The App Store
To disable this. Go to Settings-iTunes & App Store-Auto Play-Videos-Select “Off”.
Auto-Brightness Settings Moved
Maybe you have noticed that Auto-Brightness is no longer in the “Display & Brightness” settings. It’s not that, it has entirely gone, just moved to a less convenient location.
Settings-General-Accessibility-Display Accommodations-Enable/Disable as desired.
How To Reduce The Home Page Of The User Interface
- Go to Settings > General
- Scroll down to Reduce Motion
- Turn the slider to green.
This will reduce the motion of the user interface, including the parallax effect of icons.
Bluetooth & Wi-Fi Won’t Turn Off
Back in iOS 10, when you would tap on the Bluetooth or Wi-Fi toggle in the Control Center, the setting would turn off. In iOS 11, Apple has changed the behavior of the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles, which is confusing a lot of users.
When you disable the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth toggle from the Control Center, the color of the icons changes from blue to gray. The only way to disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth completely is to do it via the Settings app.
The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections have three different states: Connected, Disconnected, Off.
There’s No More 3D Touch Gesture For The App Switcher
The 3D Touch Gesture available bottom-left corner of your screen for the App Switcher instead of the home button is no. Instead of 3D Touch Gesture, you can use an alternative method of turning AssistiveTouch into a Dedicated Multitasking Button.
You can try customizing the Assistive Touch feature from Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Assistive Touch.
Thumbnails Appear Every Time You Screenshot
Many of the iPhone lovers will love the Apple’s new feature of screenshot editing, but there will be at least a few that will hate seeing that thumbnail image appear in the corner of the screen every time a screenshot is taken.
You can “disable” this feature of thumbnails appearing by either ignore the preview thumbnail/s, which will disappear in a few seconds or swipe left on the preview thumbnail/s to make it (or them) disappear faster.
Did The Option To Add Email Accounts To Mail
Apple decided to group the “Add Account” option into its own section in the Settings menu.
Open the Settings on your iPhone. Once opened, scroll down and select “Accounts & Passwords”.Then, tap on “Add Account,” and choose the email service you’d like to sign into.
Always follow the on-screen instructions because depending on what service you choose, a permissions prompt might appear, so tap on “Yes” to proceed in order to sign in with your email address and password. After choosing all the apps that you want to sync with your email account, tap on “Save” to finish up.
