iphone: Of course you will have heard about the possibility of short-term car rental or leasing. Now, however, in Greece we can do the same to get an iPhone!
Since Steve Jobs announced the first iPhone at an event in 2007, Apple has released at least 34 iPhone models.
With over 1.2 billion active iPhones in the world right now, it is perhaps one of the most sought after devices in the entire world.
Although the price of the iPhone has become prohibitive for the monthly budget of many people, we no longer need to buy it in installments through a loan or credit agreement and go into debt, or pay several hundred euros in advance to make our own iPhone.
And now we can acquire it by leasing.
Until now, leasing has been quite common in the auto industry, and the reason that made it popular worldwide was similar to what made leasing electronics famous: there is no need to spend start-up capital or take out a loan from consumption to buy the car
The possibility of leasing has recently been extended to other areas as well, offering us the opportunity to acquire even one of the latest iPhone models for only a small amount of money each month, with prices starting at less than 25 euros.
This possibility is offered by finloup, the startup known for its Buy Now Pay Later service, which recently brought the leasing of electronic devices to our country.
In this way, it provided the best alternative solution to those who cannot or do not want to allocate a large amount to acquire technology products, either due to a limited budget or because they do not wish to pay the installments through a consumer credit/loan.
Currently in Greece, only 13% of Greeks over the age of 25 have a credit card and one of the reasons is undoubtedly that it is a big and stressful commitment.
They don’t want to be saddled with stressful debt, which they will have to pay off until they are debt free, and when they finally manage to pay it off, their mobile phone will look quite old and outdated!
With leasing you only pay for your device while you use it, you have no interest and you don’t get into trouble with the banks, and you can stop it whenever you want.
iPhone: If you have these signs, then a virus has been infected
iphone: Is something wrong with your iPhone and you wonder what happened?
In case you were wondering, yes, it is very easy for your cell phone to get infected with a virus, just like computers.
What usually happens on a mobile phone is that the virus attacks weak points and applications that may not properly manage your personal information.
- Increased data usage
If there is an undetected virus, it will increase your overall data usage.
- Crashing apps
While there are a number of reasons this could happen, if you have plenty of storage (and not countless apps) but see them crash, you may have a virus.
It’s normal for it to happen here and there, but frequent overheating can mean that malware is eating up RAM fast.
It’s like spam. If you’re getting complaints from friends that you’re sending them dangerous links, you should probably look into it.
What you have to do
- Clear your history through settings.
- Go to settings, go to Apple ID, then iCloud. Select the most recent backup.
- Go to Settings, select General, then Reset and Erase All Content. A factory reset is the last resort.
iPhone: What the button does that few know
Millions of people own iPhones, but few are aware of the existence of a secret button.
Thanks to a video that went viral on social media, iPhone owners have discovered that their device has a “secret button” that allows them to use various features on their phone that can make their lives easier.
“You’re not using your iPhone properly if you’re not using the secret button on the back of your phone,” says TikToker “elliawesometech,” who dedicates his videos to discovering unknown features on various tech devices.
In this particular video, TikToker talks about the “Touch Back” feature on the iPhone, which is available on any device that “runs” at least the iOS 14 operating system.
The feature allows iPhone owners to simply tap the back of their phone, near where the Apple logo is, and have their smartphone launch any app they have programmed through the settings menu.
For example, you can set the “secret button” (Touch Back) to open the camera, take a screenshot, turn on the flashlight, or even turn the volume up and down.
In his video, TikToker uses the ‘Touch Back’ feature to easily open the Shazam app and find what song or tune is playing.
To enable the feature, you need to go to “Settings”, scroll down and tap on “Accessibility” and then click on “Tap”.
Then scroll down to “Play” again. You will have the option to enable “Double Tap” or “Triple Tap”, depending on whether you want a double or triple tap.
Click to see what features you can control with a double or triple tap on the back of your iPhone.
iPhone: How do you know you are being tracked?
Big brother is watching everything. Every page you see, every video, every conversation.
How you can completely erase your tracks. See in six simple steps. All the details in xristika.gr.
Each of us has left a small or large footprint on the Internet, which means that a stranger from anywhere in the world can access our personal information.
Is there a way to erase personal data from the internet so that it is not available to multiple companies?
Essentially no, but there are ways to reduce your digital footprint and therefore reduce the chances of your personal data being leaked.
In either case, reducing your digital footprint comes at a price: It can hurt your career prospects by making it harder for you to communicate with potential new employers.
Delete or disable your account on shopping platforms, social networks and online services
Consider which networks require account creation.
Beyond the obvious ones (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter) there are others, like Reddit or some e-commerce platform. All of these accounts collect personal information.
They can be removed or disabled through the security or privacy settings of your computer or mobile phone.
Deactivating some accounts sometimes requires more steps, which you can refer to online for each situation.
But if you find an account that cannot be deleted, put something false or completely random in the details.
