iOS soft­ware quick-fire ques­tions

Mac Format - - GENIUS TIPS -

My iPad makes me feel dizzy. Can I con­trol that?

This is likely due to the an­i­ma­tions used ex­ten­sively through­out iOS’s in­ter­face, which in­clude per­spec­tive shift of the Home screen’s back­ground as you tilt your iPad. You can min­imise those ef­fects: go to Set­tings > Gen­eral > Ac­ces­si­bil­ity > Re­duce Mo­tion, and turn on the switch. This fea­ture isn’t per­fect, but it should help with the dizzi­ness.

How can I stop my iPhone us­ing Siri when locked?

Some peo­ple find Siri in­ad­ver­tently ac­ti­vat­ing when their iPhone is be­ing car­ried in a pocket of a tight gar­ment, such as jeans or trousers. To pre­vent that, go to Set­tings > Siri and turn off the Ac­cess on Lock Screen item.
