The Rock + Siri = Life Goals

Who knew that Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Siri would make quite the epic pair! With iOS 11 on it's way we're going to be seeing quite a few significant improvements to Apple's Siri. Some of these include a much more natural voice for Siri (both male and female), an option to type to Siri instead of asking out loud, to save you from embarrassment, and giving better intuitive suggestions based off Siri observing your interests as you use your phone. But first let's just bask in the awesomeness which is that of The Rock fulfilling his life goals with Siri in hand!

Don't Let Your iPhone or iPad Ruin Your Sleep

It has become a natural habit for many of us to look at our iPhone or iPads while lying down in bed. I'm sure you've heard it before, but such a habit can really disrupt our sleep pattern because of the light that our devices emit. So, you might find yourself taking a little bit longer to fall asleep and also to stay asleep.

To combat this issue Apple actually provides an option called 'Night Shift.' It was introduced when iOS 9.3 was released, but not many actually know about it!

What Does Night Shift Do? Night Shift allows you to automatically or manually adjust the colour of your screen from the cool blue that it normally emits to a warmer yellow tone. This warmer tone actually helps you sleep better!

Here's how you can automatically switch Night Shift on from your Lock Screen using the Control Centre...

  1. Swipe up from the edge of your screen while on your Lock Screen to bring up the Control Centre.
  2. Tap the Night Shift button in the centre and you will see the temperature of your screen change when it is on.

You can also manually enable, set a custom schedule and adjust the colour settings of Night Shift via Settings > Display & Brightness > Night Shift.

Did you know that Night Shift is also available on Mac? Learn how to set it up here!
