With an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus or later, you can use Touch ID to make Apple Pay purchases in stores, within apps, and on websites in Safari. You can also use Touch ID on your iPhone to complete website purchases with your Mac. If you have an iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 or later, iPad (5th generation) or later, or iPad mini 3 or later, you can use Touch ID for Apple Pay purchases within apps and on websites in Safari.
Allow app downloads to use cellular data: Below Cellular Data, turn on Automatic Downloads. To choose whether you want to be asked for permission for downloads over 200 MB or all apps, tap App Downloads.
Purchasing apps on iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR using Face ID is pretty simple but involves a little bit of twist. So, if you have upgraded from the classic iPhones (with Home button), you might not find the process straightforward.
If you used Touch ID on an iPhone before, all you had to do to install apps and games from the App Store was rest your fingertip on the Home button. On the iPhone X, there's Face ID instead, and Apple has included on-screen instructions to help everyone adjust to the lack of Home button. Still, those instructions may not be working for you, but the solution is as simple as a misinterpretation.
If you have password-protected apps on your iPhone X ($999.00 at Verizon)(Opens in a new window) , trying to remember usernames and passwords for each one can be a hassle. What's the solution Use your face instead of a password to sign into supported apps.
Which apps actually work with Face ID Any app supporting Touch ID will automatically work with Face ID, according to Apple(Opens in a new window). But you'll have to double-check on an individual basis. The app should tell you either directly or somewhere in its settings if it supports Touch ID or Face ID. Let's check out the process for using Face ID to sign into your favorite apps.
Are you looking for alternative ways to download apps without using an Apple ID Do you want to stay legal but work around the system in order to get apps for your iPhone Do you want to overcome the loss of the App Store in iTunes
iOS 12.7 changed all that with the removal of the App Store. Where you could once download apps onto your Mac and manage your mobile devices from there, you now have to download apps directly onto your device. Fine in some ways but not so great in others. So what is an iPhone or iPad owner to do
There are lots of tools online that offer to download apps without using your Apple ID or iTunes. Some of them may work, while others may not. I tried many different ones, and here are the best options I found.
Many different manufacturers make Android phones and they often include some customization over the vanilla Android experience. e.g. HTC Sense or Samsung TouchWiz. Depending upon your device and carrier, there may be pre-installed apps that are bundled with your Android device.
This article explains how app design patterns differ in Android and iOS. Android typically has a persistent back button for navigation. While the look and feel are different, many apps -- like TikTok, YouTube and WhatsApp -- will look familiar when you switch from Android to iOS or vice versa.
The Apple app store currently offers over 1 million apps, about 30% of which are available for the iPad. Most developers prefer to develop games for iOS before they develop for Android. A list of iOS-only games is maintained here on Wikipedia.
The bottomline when comparing Google and Apple's app stores is that most popular apps are available for both platforms. But for tablets, there are more apps designed specifically for the iPad while Android tablet apps are often scaled up versions of Android smartphone apps. Developers at startups often focus on one platform (usually iOS) when they first launch their smartphone app because they do not have resources to serve multiple platforms from the get go. For example, Instagram started with iOS and their Android app came much later.
Another consideration is being able to run Android apps on Windows PCs. Android apps distributed via Amazon's app store are compatible with Windows. In some use cases, for paid apps that you want to run both on your tablet and PC, this would give Android an advantage.
Android allows users to log onto GTalk for instant messages. iOS does not offer a native way to chat to non-Apple users. Users can message over Apple users using iMessage or use apps from Google for GTalk and Microsoft for Skype.
iOS is also fully integrated with Facebook, allowing users to update their status and upload images from various apps, sync their contacts with Facebook, and have their Facebook events automatically added to their iOS Calendar. iOS now offers much deeper integration with Facebook and Twitter because of how tightly it is weaved into core apps on iOS.
Malware writers are less likely to write apps for iOS, due to Apple's review of all the apps and verification of the identity of app publishers. However, if an iOS device is jailbroken and apps installed from outside Apple's store, it can be vulnerable to attacks and malware. Both iOS and Android are also vulnerable to bugs e.g. phones crashing when playing a specific video, which is a type of software bug that has affected both iOS and Android devices.
Both iOS and Android are \"vulnerable\" to a certain kind of privacy leak: an app installed on either platform can get a list of all other apps installed on the same device. This means your calculator app can find out that you use Tinder and relay that information back to its publisher, who is then free to use this info in whatever way they choose. In November 2014, Twitter announced that it is now tracking the list of apps its users have installed on their phones. Twitter is far from being the only company doing this.
Beyond the list of apps, when it comes to protecting users' private information, iOS wins. Until Android Marshmallow was released in 2015, when installing apps on Android, the user was presented with all the permissions that the app is requesting. This was an all-or-nothing proposition. The user could choose to accept the app's request for permissions or not install the app at all. App developers take advantage of this \"feature\" and request a lot of user information. For example, Pandora's mobile app on Android requests permissions for your Google identity, contacts, calendar, photos, media, files and even call information.
Pandora's app on iOS gets no such permissions. After it is installed and opened by the user, an iOS app may request additional permissions like location and access to Contacts. But the user can reject these permission requests. Even after approving the permission requests, iOS users can quickly glance at which apps have access to their Contacts and location data, and turn off access for apps with which they no longer want to share this data.
Android M (or Marshmallow) allowed a new permissions regime where apps could request permissions as needed. However, a majority of Android apps still take the approach of requesting permissions upfront. While it is possible to manage app permissions on Android at a more granular level, this option is buried deep in the settings.
Android apps are programmed using C, C++ and Java. It is an \"open\" platform; anyone can download the Android source code and Android SDK for free. Anyone can create and distribute Android apps for free; users are free to download apps from outside the official Google Play store. There is, however, a one-time $25 registration fee for developers who want to publish their apps (whether free or paid apps) on the official Google Play store. Apps published on Google Play undergo a review by Google. The Android SDK is available for all platforms - Mac, PC and Linux.
iOS apps are programmed using Objective-C. Developers must pay $99 every year for access to the iOS SDK and the right to publish in Apple's app store. The iOS SDK is only available for the Mac platform.
To hide apps on your iPhone using the App Library, go to the Home Screen and tap and hold the app that you want to hide. Then select Remove App from the pop-up menu. Finally, tap Remove from Home Screen to hide the app in your App Library.
To add apps back to your Home Screen, tap and hold the app and select Add to Home Screen. You can also tap and hold an app in the search results and drag it to add it back to your Home Screen at any time.
Another way to delete apps is via the iPhone Storage section of Settings. One of the benefits of this method is it is easy to pick the largest apps to remove if you are trying to recover space on your iPhone.
So there you have it, various ways to rid yourself of these troublesome pre-installed apps. Should you want to continue your Marie Condo-style decluttering on other devices try reading How to delete apps on Apple TV and How to delete Apple Watch apps. Now, go forth and spark joy!
One way of ensuring more privacy in your iPhone, without a doubt, is locking your apps. Surprisingly, some still wonder if it is possible to lock apps on iPhones. There are several ways to lock apps on iPhone; some are straightforward with limited options, while others are much more advanced.
You can lock apps on your iPhone by setting screen time or without screen time. Furthermore, you can use third-party apps that help lock apps and manage screen time. An excellent example of these apps is the AirDroid Parental control app, which can manage screen time and lock different apps or websites.
The Screen Time feature that helps you lock your apps is available in iOS 12 and later. This method only allows you to lock the first-party apps (apps that Apple creates). Therefore, if you have other apps from other software makers, you won't be able to lock them.
While on the list of apps, you must select which apps to restrict access by tapping the check box button. This button is situated to the left of the app category you plan to lock, for e
