Checked block messages and contacts and is none of it is there. All messages where gone from text messaging and no message in received from those numbers.

iPhone 7/8/X: Fix mail app crash after upgrade to iOS 11or iOS 11.2

Image
With iOS upgrades Apple is upgrading all apps so does the mail app. Mail app is great mail features and easy to use with different mail types like Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, Aol, Outlook and Other custom mail server. But after the upgrade mail app is facing many issues. 



iPhone 7/8 , iPhone X and an iPad Air 2 user after upgrading to iOS 11.2 are not able the use the mail app anymore on both type of devices, as it always crashes at the start. Even trying to delete and add the account did not help to fix the mail app crash on iPhone. The issue is reported with exchange server like msn.com, outlook.com etc. The mail app on iOS 11 crashes even before opening and this is very frustrating. Apple don’t have comments on this so far.


Workaround for the issue :
You must not add an outlook.com/other mail server  account under accounts, you have to choose other. This won‘t use the predefined outlook settings, but at least Mail works without crashing. But it looks like push isn‘t available with this met…

iPhone 6/7/8 : What is exclamation mark with blurred photo in iOS11

Image
Some iPhone users are seeing exclamation mark on side of photos in iPhone.  This is strange as no message or information is provided with it and is just an exclamation mark on the corner of a photo without any explanation. The exclamation mark is also seen on iPhone7/8 is also on iOS 11. Many user are not aware of this indicator and gets worried as this is related to their iPhone photo album.


Meaning of exclamation mark in iPhone photo album is that you are using iCloud Photo library, and the specific photo’s full-size original could not be loaded from iCloud due to some reasons. This could be due to lack of a network connection or poor WIFI signal, or in worst case it could be file corruption on iCloud’s end . There can be chances  that not all photo have this marks and particular photo from iCloud library is facing issues while downloading.  Also in case you are seeing red mark next to photo in your iPhone, that red mark indicates that the photo has not been downloaded to your device…

iPhone 7/8 : Remove music app from lock screen iOS 11

Image
After upgrading to new iOS 11 many iPhone users are finding iOS 11 music player on lock screen. However some users don’t find this valuable as they don’t use music player much and want to see notification instead of it. ios 11 music controls on lock screen is taking space on the screen and taking up valuable space. 


The issue is strange as every one of apps is closed and it still shows the music controls on the lock screen. When you turn off the music app, you should get rid of that widget from the lock screen of your iPhone or iPad. But of late, people have complained that music player widget keeps pestering them as it doesn’t disappear even after turning off the app. ios 11 music widget stays on the lock screen.
A quick fix for the issue is to close your music app and restart the iPhone. Touch and hold the icon until it vibrates and an "x" appears in upper left corner. Click on that x and the "Delete" option that appears. 

Now reboot your iPhone/iPad the issue shoul…

Notification pausing video after upgrade to iOS 11 fix

Image
Many users after upgrading to iOS 11 are facing issue with notification while playing video. In the iPhone 7/8 on iOS 11 while watching any kind of video and receive a notification that video will pause when notification comes. This is annoying while watching any video.


The issue can not be related to network/WIFI issue as the the issue is reported even when the video is completely buffered and notification still pauses video in iPhone. Surely this seems like an iOS bug in latest iOS 11. One user even reported this with audio music also.  “iphone 8, Ios 11.1.2. Whenever I get a notifications what ever I'm doing like listening to music or watching videos, it pauses. “

Since there are no update from Apple yet but a workaround to listen to music without audio notifications. You can try to switch to silent mode using side button, and when all the notifications comes up, hopefully they no longer interrupt the music.
