How to disable iphone tracking file

 

Apple’s phone, tablet, and computer-tracking tools are the best in the business. You can remotely locate your device, disable it with a lock and message that persists through factory resets — the so-called “kill switch” — and wipe it.

These features aren’t enabled by default, so you’ll need to ensure the tracking features are enabled ahead of time if you’d ever like to remotely track, lock, or wipe your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

The “Find My” features are part of Apple’s iCloud service . To enable this feature, open the Settings app, tap iCloud, and set the Find My iPhone or Find My iPad slider to On. You’ll need to enable this setting on each device you want to track.

By default, the iPhone and iPad keyboard switches between uppercase and lowercase letters when you tap the shift key. This is meant to help you differentiate when you are typing in caps or not, but some people prefer only seeing uppercase letters. If that sounds like you, you can easily disable the keyboard from switching cases.

When you touch a key on the iPhone keyboard, you will notice that a magnified version pops up above it. This is known as a character preview, and on iPhone you can disable them. Unfortunately, on iPad you don't have this option.

Why on earth would anyone want to turn off the lower case keycaps??? Probably the same idiots that want Apple to make a 3.5 inch screen phone again.

My partner has a hand-me-down iPhone 4s, and a few months ago, the home button started playing up and not pressing. She started using the on-screen home button instead, which has solved the problem of not being able to press the home button.

Now though, the home button is more responsive, even too responsive. We started noticing that she had called random people (totally random, not most recent or near the beginning of the alphabet or anything) while the phone was in her bag, and occasionally while locking the phone, it would issue a camera shutter button as if it had taken a screenshot. Now it is frequently activating voice control, even if it is just sitting on the table.

It's pretty clear that the problem is that the home button is sticking down sometimes, and is often opening voice control, and as a result, dialling random people (apparently the voice dial software is oversensitive and thinks anything is a name, rather than saying 'sorry, cannot find "hrrghgsh" in your contacts'.

If you locked your iPhone with a password but can't remember it, trying to guess it might not be a good idea. If you enter the incorrect password at least six times, the iPhone enters disabled mode to prevent unauthorized access to the device. The iPhone exits disabled mode after one minute, but if you continue to enter the wrong password, it will disable until you sync the device with iTunes. Syncing with iTunes resets your password and restores the device by deleting all content on it. If you've previously synced the iPhone with iTunes, you can restore erased content from a backup.

The truth is that Apple has specifically claimed in the patent a method/system that could disable smartphone functions (i.e., send “infrared data [that] comprises a disable command to render a function of an electronic device temporarily inoperable”). The good news is that no one can use this precise method of image capture without paying Apple a presumably large sum of money.

As a quick physics refresher-lesson, infrared is the area of the electromagnetic spectrum that is a longer wavelength than red and is invisible to the human eye. Infrared, like the signals sent by your TV remote control, is directional and needs to be aimed. A writer at Tech Insider noted the direct line of sight nature of infrared “is perfect for the application described in Apple’s patent, as it won’t disable your camera unless you’re pointing it at something or someone you’re not supposed to.” However, most people are just concerned there might be a backdoor to disabling their iPhone.

Your first thought should be: “if infrared is invisible, do current iPhone cameras ‘see’ infrared?” The short answer is that the rear-facing cameras on recent iPhones filter out or cut IR waves.
