The redesigned control centre is one of our favourite features on iOS 11. By swiping up from any screen, you can switch off/on mobile data and even hotspot easily without having to dig through settings. On top of that, you also get your usual Airplane mode, WiFi and Bluetooth toggle as well.
However, did you know that when you switch off Bluetooth and WiFi from the control centre, it isn’t really turned off as you would expect?
UPDATE: Apologies, the early release shown here is exclusively for iOS 11 Beta users. If you’re a Beta user, you can check for updates under Settings > General > Software Update.
Malaysia is once again being left out from the first wave of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X release. While other countries are getting their new iPhone sometime next week, it appears that Malaysia is having better luck in software instead.
As announced during Apple’s keynote event, the final iOS 11 public release will be available to all supported devices on 19 September 2017 but those who have joined the Beta program can start downloading the final release of iOS 11 a week before everyone else.
Apple’s popular iPad is gettings its biggest update yet with the release of iOS 11 later this year. The latest version will bring more productivity features which could turn the iPad closer to a laptop replacement device.
To demonstrate its new features, Apple has released a series of short videos to show you how it’s done. Watch them all after the break.
Some might not realise this but whenever you use an iPhone or an iPad, Google is the default search engine for iOS. Whether it is on Spotlight or Safari’s address bar, iOS integrates Google whenever you need to search on the web.

Tablets shipments are continuing to slow down but the good news is that it’s now declining at a lower rate. According to IDC’s latest Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker report for Q2 2017, a total of 37.9 million units were shipped in the last quarter which is a slight drop of 3.4% year-over-year. A year ago, overall tablet shipments had dropped by 12.3% from 44.1 million units in Q2 2015 to 38.7 million in Q2 2016.
Interestingly, despite the shrinking numbers, the top tablet brands including Apple, Samsung and Huawei have held their places pretty well in the last quarter.
As smartphones continue to grow, the tablet segment has been on a decline for the past few years. The iPad which was first introduced in 2010 is also having a slowdown in sales since 2014. With consumers getting comfortable with larger screen smartphones, it seems that the slate form factor is slowly becoming redundant.
Surprisingly, Apple has just posted its first quarterly growth for the iPad year-over-year since late 2013 with a total of 11.42 million iPads sold in the last fiscal quarter.
With Malaysia’s 60th Merdeka Day around the corner, Mac City is having a special promotion for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, iMac and MacBooks. If you’re in the market for a brand new iPhone 7, you can get it from them at up to RM300 off with a little extra.
Imagine this: You’re travelling overseas and you need to get some work done or check on a couple of stuff on your iPad but there’s no free WiFi available. You can consider switching on your phone’s wifi hotspot but some telcos might not let you enable hotspot on their network. If you’re using the newer iPad Pro with WiFi + Celluar support, there’s actually a third way of getting online.
