iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch & Apple Watch Tips

Back in 2011, I had a problem with my iPhone that nobody seemed able to fix.

iPhone 7

I talked to the Apple tech guys, friends, IT specialists and searched the web in vain to fix my iPhone error.

Nobody had the answer.

At this point, I decided to do a bit of research on the topic myself so see if anyone had written a “How To” article. After a few hours, I found several different answers none of which on their own seemed to solve the issue. However, when I merged them I found a solution to my annoying iOS problem.

In the end, after 4 hours I had a simple, easy to understand solution for my iPhone that worked. Best of all it also worked on the iPad and iPod Touch too.

I decided to help others out by posting this iPhone fix on my website. I was amazed a few weeks later to see that it had become the most popular page on my website with hundreds of people a day visiting!

At that point, I decided that creating useful instructions on how to resolve iPhone issues would be helpful for the Apple community. I asked friends, family, and website visitors for the most annoying problems with their iOS devices or iTunes and found solutions for them.

I wanted to create the best iPhone solutions on the web – and make the super easy to follow and understand.
