The year 2020 is drawing to a close and it has seen several fresh trends for the market. It has literally become a watershed for many industries, and the mobile industry is no exception. Over the course of this year, we have seen 5G networks become a reality in many regions, and smartphones with four cameras become the norm in the market. And it should be noted that this year mid-range smartphones have gained immense popularity.

2020 has brought back interest in mid range smartphones We figure

The main reason why buyers are increasingly looking at non-mid-range smartphones is that a lot of premium features have migrated from flagships to mid-range. Among these features are displays with a high refresh rate, which provide a smoother picture. So, we could see screens with a frequency of 90 Hz in smartphones such as OnePlus Nord, Realme 7 and Poco X3, which are much cheaper than the top models. Another feature that has appeared in the middle class is support for fast charging. Now even inexpensive smartphones can be charged at 30W or more.

Don’t forget 5G too. 2020 saw the emergence of mid-range chipsets with 5G modems from Qualcomm, MediaTek and even Samsung. It is thanks to them that smartphones with support for fifth generation cellular networks have become much cheaper. OnePlus Nord, Google Pixel 4a 5G, Moto G 5G Plus, Samsung Galaxy A51 5G, Redmi K30i – this is an incomplete list of mid-range smartphones that support the next generation of connectivity.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset played an important role in the spread of 5G in the mid-price segment. In addition to supporting fifth-generation cellular networks, including the mmWave range, it brings support for high refresh rates and 4K video recording at 60 frames per second to smartphones. This is why the Snapdragon 765G has been chosen by brands such as OnePlus, Samsung, Xiaomi, Nokia, LG, OPPO and Realme as the platform for their mid-range smartphones.

One cannot discount the fact that due to the coronavirus pandemic, purchasing activity has decreased, as have the income of many users. In this regard, the owners of flagships increasingly began to pay attention to cheaper models.

Whether buyers’ interest in mid-range smartphones will continue next year is hard to say. But if we consider that flagships have only been getting more expensive in recent years, and analysts are talking about the coming economic crisis, the demand for budget smartphones will continue.

1640377784 iPhone 13 Pro Force restart if device does not respond

The new iPhone 13 models are here and with them some users get their first iPhone without a home button in their hands. This also changes various gestures and functions. An example of this is forcing a restart, which is performed differently than it was just a few years ago.

If you switch from an iPhone 8 or iPhone SE (2nd generation) to a current iPhone model, you will quickly notice a lot of changes. In addition to the new gestures for returning to the home screen or opening the control center, the missing home button should be particularly noticeable. In the past, this controlled various functions such as Siri, the one-handed mode or the forced restart. The latter works completely differently with the new models and has a small side effect along the way. But one after another.

iPhone 13 (all models): How to force restart

Without a home button, Apple had to come up with a new alternative to force the devices to restart. The way is much more complex than before. While on the older models you only had to hold down the home button together with the power button, it now requires a small key combination. To restart an iPhone 13, briefly press the volume up button and release it again. Then press the volume down button in the same way. Finally, hold down the side button (power button) until the Apple logo appears on the display. You should not pay attention to any displays or changes on the screen during the processor.
Short version: Force restart the iPhone 13

  • Briefly press the volume up button
  • Briefly press the volume down button
  • Press and hold the side button until the Apple logo appears.

Quickly deactivate Face ID on the iPhone 13

Apple has integrated a function in iOS to quickly turn off Face ID. This means that it is not possible for other people (police, etc.) to unlock your iPhone by holding it in your face. To do this, simply press and hold a volume button together with the side button until your iPhone vibrates briefly but quickly. Then press either “Cancel” or the Page button again. Thanks to the vibration, you can also deactivate it in your pocket and know that it worked.

Search engine suggestions can be scary at times. Thanks to the strong network, you now know exactly what we want to look for and then have the right answer ready before we could actually put the question to the end.

step 2: Now click on “Safari” in the menu bar at the top of the screen and select “Settings”.

step 3: Then select the “Search” tab.

Step 4: You will then see a drop-down menu with the search engine – this is Google by default – and under it it says: “Include search engine suggestions”. Uncheck this entry.

Apple ID: iOS 15 allows resetting with friends and family

1640376902 Apple ID iOS 15 allows resetting with friends and family

If you lose access to your Apple ID, it’s a very messy business. It literally holds the Apple universe together. You can use it to make purchases from Apple, the App Store or the iTunes Store, manage your app subscriptions, access your iCloud data and much more. Fortunately, since iOS 15 you don’t need a second device of your own to reset your Apple ID and set a new password. The new operating system allows you to define a contact who, if necessary, can confirm your identity and thus give you access to your data again. Of course, you should think carefully about who is eligible for this position. This can be your best friend or family member. These should also have an iPhone or iPad with iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 and be older than 13 years.

How to set a reset contact for your Apple ID

Your Apple ID is not lost right away because you forgot your password. Establish a special “emergency contact” beforehand that will give you access to your Apple account again. To do this, open the Settings app and tap on your profile at the top before you select “Password & Security”. Then tap on “Account recovery”. Now select the option “Add contact”. Read the information about the function carefully. In the next step, you may be asked to update your devices. You can then specify a contact from your family group or from your contact list. You will only see qualified contacts. After your selection, a message will be sent to the selected person informing them of their new position.

How to remove a reset contact from your Apple ID

If you no longer want a certain person to allow you to reset your Apple ID, you can revoke this at any time. To do this, open the settings and tap on your Apple account at the top. Then select “Password & Security> Account Recovery”. Now tap on the person’s name and select “Remove contact”. The removed contact will be automatically notified of the change.
notice: The function is only available if all of your devices are running at least iOS 15, iPadOS 15, tvOS 15 and watchOS 8. Make sure of this beforehand or remove the devices from your Apple ID if an update is not possible.
