How to stop delete message confirmation in iOS 11.3

Image
Many iPhone users after upgrading to latest iOS 11.3 are facing a problem with message app while deleting a message conversation. The new iOS 11.3 update added a feature to message that it will now ask if you're sure you want to delete a text message/iMessage once you choose the delete option. It is possible that some users might have found these preventive steps from Apple against accidental deletion of messages but at the same time since iOS never had this option before, so many users who are in habit of deleting messages directly are finding this as really annoying.


Even when tried to find in iOS 11.3 setting, searching through the settings to remove this deletion confirmation, but does not seems that any such option exists. There is no direct way to shut off the confirmation message while deleting any message or iMessage.
When contacted to Apple support senior tech confirmed that this is not a bug but a feature and there is no way to turn it off as of now. It could have been be…

How to fix iPhone X/8/7/6 Battery Percentage Stuck after iOS 11.2/11.3

Image
Many iPhone X and iPhone 8/7/6 users are facing battery issue with iOS11/11.1/11.2. Like quick battery drain etc. But another issue that been found on iPhone is battery percentage gets stuck while charging above 90% or at some other value. The iPhone will charges normally up till around 90% and it starts to slow down and get stuck at certain percentages. The phone can get stuck at 90%, 85% or 70%. It can be any value. Battery life is seems to be fine and there’s no fast drainage. The iphone X/8 works fine but while charging them they are stuck at some random % value and phone is not charging to 100%.


While the battery is stuck at some percentage and if you try to restart your iPhone the iPhone battery will be increased. This seems to a software bus in iOS11 release and even in latest iOS 11.3 battery percentage is getting stuck while charging and never reaches to 100%.

iPhone voice memos is not playing via bluetooth speaker [Fix]

Image
iPhone users on iOS11 are facing issue with playing voice memos over Bluetooth speakers. The voice memo will not get played at all but rather starts playing over the iphone. Interstigly everything rest on iPhone like Music app and games play through the speaker, it’s just Voice Memos that does not. Bluetooth is already connected but doesn't play. The issue is independent of speakers as it happens with almost all speakers Bose mini, Beats X etc.


The issue is reported with almost app versions of iphone 6/7/8 and iphone x as well on recent iOS11. This does seems to be a bug for voicememo only for Bluetooth speakers. If play voice memo it does not work though the speaker is connected to Bluetooth. Play the Voice Memos, the audio auto switches from bluetooth speaker to the speaker on my iphone. Not sure if Apple has designed the voice memo not to work over a bluetooth device or it’s a bug in iOS 11. But the users are looking to get fixed from Apple.

How to fix iPhone 7 plus making creaking/clicking sound when press hard

Image
Many iPhone 7Plus owners are making cmplaints about the models, specifically who owns a black iPhone 7 plus that the phone makes a slight cracking sound when pressed firmly. iPhone 7 makes a slight creaking sound that sounds like something is loose inside the phone. The sound is clearly audible if some flex is there on phone.


The issue is not similar across all devices for some user the issue happens every time expected but for some it is intermittent. If your iPhone is affected you can easily reproduce this by While twisting the phone by holding it from upright and down left corners you can hear the clicking noise easily which is annoying. Or you may Just push on the right side on the home button to hear the clicking. But luckily this does not have any issue if you expose your iPhone to water.
Some users replaced the iPhone but still the new phone has same issue. Even contacting the Apple Support does not seem to be give a reasonable reply for it. Here is what an users said on Apple f…

iPhone 5/6/7/8 No sound for video recording [Fix]

Image
Many iPhone 5s, 6s, 7+ and iphone 8 with iOS11, users are facing issue with sound recording while shooting a video that video recording sound drops off suddenly at some time slot and come back again when playback. However if you try to record the video from front camera there is no sound recording issue with iPhone. The same issue was reported couple of year back with “iPhone 6 sound missing from a recorded video”.


When you record the video, the video looks good but the only sound is a hissing sound and the audio is very very low to the point where you can only hear it if you hold the phone directly to your ear, which is very annoying. What is more strange that the voice recorder still works well if tried standalone. Sometime there is no audio recorded at all with iPhone 7 video recording but sometimes recorded videos sound drops out to about 20% during playback. Resetting the iPhone does not seem to help the users. However at very first place you should check the case you are using to…

iPhone safari error “this connection is not private”

Image
Many iPhone 6s/7/8  and iPhone X users are facing issue that while browsing over safari some time the error screen is shown on iPhone with error message “this connection is not private” . This can be any site or even some genuine sites like for some case Safari message blocking from accessing AT&T site.


The issue can be even reported while you try to join some Wireless network and you can see the error message as shown in pic. This won’t let you join the network. The issue is frequently seen with iOS11 update, when the phone automatically updated to iOS11, many secure settings are now saying not secure.
So many users are looking to bypass "this connection is not private" error message in Safari. It looks like latest iOS safari has some security updates which might be causing it. It is probably related to the secure certificate issued by that website. Any secure website (https) has such a certificate and it must check out with the authority that issued it. Your browser does…

it's really annoying, the message disappearing from iPhone is not consistent - definitely intermittent. Some message notifications appear fine, others don’t. For many users this all started with iOS 11. User loses the notifications and the messages they…

iPhone 7 apps like facebook, instagram load again from fresh page after making switch

Image
Apple has been always trying to come up with great feature, clean design and more interactive design. So also in iOS11 there are many great features launched by Apple. But there still exists a design or issue when user switches between apps also known as multitasking. The problem is when you are working in one app, then switch to another to do some other work there, and then switch back to the first app, the first app then either resets itself and goes back to its starting screen which is very annoying as you might lose some data or scroll all the way to find the same thing in apps. Like if you are watching a YouTube video and switches to some other app, and once you reopen YouTube app you will have to search and play the video again. The issue is very frequent with instagram app.


Turning off Background App Refresh has no effect since this is not about what apps do in the background but rather what they do when they're brought back to the foreground in iPhone. What is more surprisi…
