Search Set­tings for a So­lu­tion

If there's a fea­ture you're un­happy with or a prob­lem you're try­ing to fix, then the Set­tings app is a good place to start prob­lem solv­ing. But there are a lot of dif­fer­ent iPhone set­tings to sift through, which is why Ap­ple added a Search bar in the Set­tings app.

To search for an an­swer, open Set­tings, swipe down, and a search bar will ap­pear. Type in the key­word re­lated to the is­sue you're hav­ing and tap on the re­sult that looks right. If you don't find what you're look­ing for, go back to the Set­tings home and it will au­to­mat­i­cally bring your Search op­tions back up. Stop Con­trol Cen­ter from Pop­ping Up Un­wanted

Con­trol Cen­ter is great be­cause it al­lows you to quickly do all kinds of use­ful things like turn Wi-Fi, Air­plane Mode, and Do Not Dis­turb on or off, lock your screen ori­en­ta­tion, con­trol play­back, ad­just vol­ume lev­els, open your phone's cal­cu­la­tor, and use your iPhone as a flash­light. What's not so great is swiping up from the bot­tom of the screen while us­ing an app (es­pe­cially when that app is a game) and ac­ci­den­tally bring­ing up Con­trol Cen­ter.

To pre­vent Con­trol Cen­ter from open­ing while you are us­ing apps go to Set­tings > Con­trol Cen­ter and tog­gle Ac­cess Within Apps off.

If you dis­like re­ceiv­ing text mes­sages on your Mac, then sim­ply dis­able them on your com­puter By open­ing the Mes­sages app on your Mac. Click Mes­sages in the top bar and se­lect Pref­er­ences. The Ac­counts win­dow will pop up; tap your Ap­ple ID on the left col­umn. Uncheck En­able this ac­count. To dis­able this fea­ture on your iPhone with­out turn­ing off iMes­sages, open Set­tings and se­lect Mes­sages. Scroll down and click Text Mes­sage For­ward­ing. Turn off any de­vices you don't want send­ing and re­ceiv­ing iMes­sages from your iPhone. This is in ad­di­tion to chang­ing iMes­sage pref­er­ences on your Mac. Turn Off Pesky App No­ti­fi­ca­tions

If you don't want con­stant no­ti­fi­ca­tions from Face­book or a game like Candy Crush, you can ad­just the set­tings for your app no­ti­fi­ca­tions by go­ing to Set­tings and then scrolling down to the list of all the apps on your phone. Once here, tap on the app that you want to mod­ify. Tap No­ti­fi­ca­tions. From here, you can edit all of the per­mis­sions the app has al­lowed. For in­stance, you can choose to re­voke all no­ti­fi­ca­tions by se­lect­ing No­ti­fi­ca­tions and tog­gling off Al­low No­ti­fi­ca­tions, de­ter­mine if and when the app tracks your lo­ca­tion, and de­cide whether or not an app may use your cel­lu­lar data.
