Smartphone

My first mobile phone was the Sony J5. Even though it had an antenna, it a was a breeze to scroll though compared to other mobile phones. It had a technology called jog dial on the side which made it possible. 

Once in a while, some companies make something so much easier to use than any other companies. It was not until when the iPhone was released in 2007 when the true touch screens were made possible.

Personal Hotspot

Personal Hotspot

Personal Hotspot lets you share your mobile Data from your phone in the form of WiFi to your iPad, laptop etc.

 

This is useful for your other devices you may have with you. Also it is more secure than using public WiFi connection.

Before you setup Personal Hotspot, make sure to know what your iPhone is named as.

To do this, go to Settings on your iPhone then “General” and “About”

You will see the name as for example "Jack's iPhone" 

 

To Set up Personal Hotspot on iPhone 

  • Go to Settings 

  • Personal Hotspot

  • Turn On “Allow others to Join”

  • Tap “Turn on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth”

  • Also make a note of the password. If the password is too difficult, tap on that and change it to something you can easily remember to type it in again (minimum 8 characters). Tap “Done” on the top right of your screen.

 

Now got to your other device, WiFi and look for the name of your iPhone e.g. Jack’s iPhone. 

If you are doing this for the first time, you will be prompted to enter the password which was below “Allow others to Join” section.

 

 

Remember to turn off your Personal Hotspot once you have finished using it.

  • Settings - Personal Hotspot - Off

Apple Pay

Apple Pay

We are amazed to see and hear how many people think that their mobile payment, especially Apple Pay is more vulnerable than their physical Card. In fact it's the other way around. Your physical Card is more vulnerable when Bank increased the contactless payment limit to £100. 

If you leave your card behind in a store, someone pickpockets your card or you simply loose your card, it can be used multiple times up to £100 per transaction.

 

If you loose your phone, the person who is trying to use your phone for payments  still need to approve with your Biometric ID (FaceID or Touch ID) or your Passcode.

Advantages of Apple Pay 

  • Better Security 

  • Easy to block your Payments from your lost device

  • Easy to un-block your Payment Cards for the lost device if you do find your device.

  • No need to cancel your physical Cards
