When you're at home, you want the Wi-Fi on your phone to be turned on. It saves battery life; it loads, downloads, and sends things faster; it keeps your data use under control; and sometimes it's the only way to do high-bandwidth tasks like downloading huge apps, games, magazines, or videos.
Then, when you leave the house, you turn it off, because you don't want your phone constantly searching for a Wi-Fi connection that may never come. This wastes battery life. Also depending on your settings it might be annoying. Here's how that's done on the iPhone, right now:
- 1. Hit the home button to exit out of whatever app you're using.
- 2. Navigate to the page of your homescreen on which your "Settings" app lives.
- 3. Open Settings.
- 4. Hit the "Wi-Fi" setting.
- 5. Switch the Wi-Fi setting to on or off, and select your network if necessary.
- 6. Double-click the home button, tap the icon of the app you were using to go back to where you were before this whole mess started.
This is dumb! So we were very pleased to see that Apple, at today's WWDC event, announced what they're calling the "Control Center." Whatever you're doing, in any app, swipe up from the bottom of your screen. There you'll be presented with all the toggles and switches you'd ever need: Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Brightness, Rotation Lock, Night Mode, AirPlay, Play/Pause/FF/RW/Seek controls for music, and even basic tools like a calculator, flashlight, and camera. When you're done toggling or switching or adjusting, swipe the Control Center right back down to the bottom of the screen, from whence it came.
This was starting to get embarrassing; Android has had the ability to quickly adjust settings for literally years now, and this kind of very simple tweak that makes users' lives easier is exactly the kind of thing Apple should have been great at from the start. So, there it is: Control Center, the best thing Apple announced today.
It took Apple all the way to v7 to do this? Wow. Just ... wow.
yeah i've had this ability on my jailbroken iphone for years. what the heck took apple so long? and how come the jailbroken version still looks better? disappointed.
Really? I can put my Droid in airplane mode and turn on wifi in seconds if I'm really looking to streamline a hungry task or be a battery miser. Have for a long time. Why is this news?
And looky there. You Apple kids also have iTunes Radio now. Imagine that, streaming audio.
I pray Apple doesn't decide to join the console gaming world. Oh wait, I may have heard a rumor...
Sold. I'll buy it.
Makes my droid look 4 years old...
Proof positive that the 'it' device eventually has to provide features available on competing devices in order to remain 'relevant'. A name alone just isn't enough.
So is phone connect game and more and more, we pay for it.
OK. If it can improve our life. We did it.
And so is why iPhone5 Taktik Extreme Metal Shock Drop Resistance Case on theideasforgift dot com is popular, it's 45% off and Free shipping to buy, we save money and protects something we care just like we spend money on something we like...
I was hoping this wasn't the only new iPhone article so far.
A whole article about one ordinary feature? The new iPhone must be seriously uninteresting.
This isn't a new iPhone its a new iOS...
Oh I'm sure Apple will call this a brand new feature that no one has thought of before and try to patent it.
So... Android has an app called Silence by Epsilon Labs, LLC that does all that. You can schedule your phone to be on vibrate/silent when you're in the office. You can turn your wifi on/off when you're home. You can have it sync to your calendar and be silent for every event on your calendar or turn on airplane mode at certain times. Etc.

Science Today App. Great science news app for your iPhone and iPad
I recently uncovered a cool new app which I think is a must have for anyone who is a science professional seeking to stay informed and up to date.
If anyone is looking for a particularly useful science news gathering app, I would highly recommend Science Today. It not only follows science news, reviews, and new article releases, but it also features latest discovery reviews and video resources. It pools together a wealth of reliable news sources, making it one of the most useful science news apps on the market.

On Android your wifi can be set to turn off automatically when you are not at home or work. No need for a button! This feature in iOS is already out of date and it's not even released yet.
