I have switched from Evernote to Notion, but there are a few things I’ll miss about Evernote. However, it wasn’t enough to prevent me from switching to this outstanding new platform for organizing your thoughts, data, projects, and more. In this video, I share what I’m most excited about with Notion and why I switched, even though there are a couple of features I’ll miss from Evernote.
If you are interested in checking out Notion, they have a free account option so you can kick the tires: http://bit.ly/zYes19g
Here are 7 basic ways you can help prolong your battery power on your iPhone (outside of just carrying around an extra battery). Below is a list of all seven covered, and in the video I show you how to adjust each one. I would love to hear your own suggestions in the comments below!
① ⚡️Use Low Power Mode – Low Power Mode isn’t new, but it is helpful when you need your battery to last longer than usual.
② 🔦Lower your flashlight brightness – You can actually choose the brightness level of the iPhone flashlight on the fly.
③ 🎆 Disable some visual effects – All of the visual effects cost some measure of processing power, which equals battery usage. You can turn some of them off.
④ 🔆 Use auto-brightness – Tell your iPhone to automatically adjust brightness based on the lighting levels in the environment you are in.
⑤ 📩 Adjust your push and fetch settings – You can change how often your iPhone checks for new email or other cloud data.
⑥ ✋🏼Tweak the background app activities – Tell specific apps NOT to check for new data in the background. It can be a real battery drain!
⑦ 🔒Shorten the Auto-Lock timing – Tell your iPhone to automatically lock after a shorter duration.
You can check your pulse using any ol’ Apple Watch, but the Apple Watch Series 4 now has the ability to check your heart rhythm with a new ECG feature! I checked my own heart with my new Apple Watch and here’s what it told me. This brief hands-on video explains how it works and reviews the basic features.
It’s time for a facelift around here, so I have changed the name of my YouTube channel and this blog to…
My goal is to create content for the average, ‘everyday’ user of Apple products because I get questions all the time about things that advanced users might take for granted. I want to turn these bits of knowledge into bite-sized chunks so that you can find what help you need.
