No more Safari on my iPhone!

23 Jan

imageI love my iPhone.
I can do so much stuff with it: working, playing, writing my blog, … I help my friends and contacts with its use, choosing the right apps that will answer their needs but sometimes all goes very wrong.

And it did for my friend who didn’t have Safari installed on her brand new out-of-the-box iPhone 5S and this was weird, very weird!
Because Safari, Music, FaceTime, iTunes Store, in-app purchase, Siri, AirDrop are all built-in whatever-you-do apps that are always installed on your iPhones, iPad.

We went to the Mothership, also called AppleStore, and discussed this with genius Daniel who introduced us to the Restriction menu.

The Restriction menu is an option you can active and disable by a code to select the built-in apps you want to use or not.

Let’s say you are offering an iPhone to your child and don’t want him/her to buy in-app purchases. You can turn it off and no more pop ins during games asking if you want to buy an extra pack …
All you have to do is create a 4 digits code (that you have to remember) to trigger the option or not.

Now, like us, you know how to solve this and Safari is back on the phone!

#EasyPay, easy go

12 Mar

easypay-apple-storeIn less than a week, I visited  2 times the AppleStore Opera in Paris … I’m so weak when it comes to technology …

When I was ready to pay for my product, a blue shirt guy said “would you like to pay with your iPhone?“.
What ?
Pay with my iPhone ? How ? Can I do that ?
“Yes!”, he said with #EasyPay.

To do so, download the free app “AppleStore“.
. Tap it open and it will find the shop where you are in, asking you to use the #EasyPay solution.
. You scan the product, your phone display the product and price and ask you to pay.
. You type in your iTunes login and password and for your 1st buy the security code on the back of the bank card linked to your account).
Then there it is, a beautiful receipt of your product.

Well done Apple! I’ll be back!
