Utility Apps aren’t the flashiest of the apps in the App Store, but they sure are useful. Developers have been pushing boundaries of what’s possible in the App world for as long as the App Store has been around. And utility apps, the iPhone equivalent of tools on a Swiss Army Knife have, in many cases, been leading the charge.Read more
Since their launch, Apple’s AirPods have had a lot going on for them. They are ultra portable, making it easy to boss around Siri, are easy to lose, sound great, look weird AF and are super expensive. Well, that pretty much sums it up! But, as it is with all things electronics, your beloved AirPods can also go wonky too.Read more
Free trial subscriptions are great! Until the free trial period is over and then you start getting charged. Be it in-app or even apps such as Hulu or Apple Music, they all start charging once the free trial is over. There aint no free lunches in this world, people!
If you don’t want to continue with the subscriptions – because you don’t like it or you don’t think that the charges are reasonable, you should be able to cancel your subscriptions, right? How frustrating will it be if you don’t stop getting charged for something you don’t even want? Fret not! Here’s how you can cancel your subscription right on your iOS device.
You can manage your subscriptions in two ways:
1. Apple Website
- You can manage your subscriptions from here if you’re reading this article from your iOS device that’s logged in to the App Store with your Apple ID.
- Click on “Manage Your Subscriptions” link.
2. iOS Settings App
- Click on the Settings app
- Your name will appear on the menu at the top; click on your name
- Next, tap on the “iTunes & App Store.”
- On the pop-up screen, tap on “View Apple ID.” If you’re not signed in already, you’ll have to do so.
- Scroll to find “Subscriptions” and tap on that.
- From the list of subscriptions, find the one you wish to manage. (It is possible that you’re charged with a subscription but you can’t see it on your list of subscriptions. This is because it isn’t billed through Apple.)
- On the next screen, you’ll get the option to manage your subscriptions – you can cancel it or choose a different subscription offering based on the length of the subscription.
There you go! Now all the subscriptions are in your control. You can keep, pick, and choose which apps you want and which aren’t worth your money.
But the best thing to do is to set a reminder when you sign up for the trial period for any subscription. That way, you’ll be able to cancel the subscription before the trial period ends, if you decide you don’t want or need it.
So, folks, which apps will you be unsubscribing from today?
One fine day I was pondering over the ponds (thank Kenny Sebastian for this gem!) wondering whether to future proof myself and go with a GPS+cellular Apple Watch or be a basic bitch and get the GPS model to save those extra bucks and buy a house! If you like me are unable to decide between the two Apple Watch versions, here’s a showdown that might help you choose. Read on!Read more

Apple finally added fast charging to their arsenal of technology with iPhone 8 and iPhone X. It was a joyous (and embarrassing) moment for Apple loyalists who were browsing for Qi chargers on Amazon while their social media feed flooded with ‘We had it two years ago’ jokes from Android users.Read more
If you’re an app hoarder like me (Yes, I still need that Hodor Keyboard!), you know that Apple’s default app layout isn’t enough. After all, what’s a phone that doesn’t reflect your personal style! And rearranging the icons on your iPhone’s Home Screen is where you should begin your customisation journey.Read more
As a deeply introverted individual, being always connected to the world is, let’s just say, exhausting. Imagine sitting on a coffee table, catching on some light reading (or the new Netflix series), and suddenly your phone goes bing! You reach out for your iPhone and start checking the notification. Bing! Another one pops up; right on top of the one you were trying to read. Bing! Another one! It’s getting out of hand! Here comes notification anxiety! So many notifications, so little time!Read more
