Set up your new iPhone XS the right way

Set up your new iPhone XS the right wayFor many people, iPhone XS will be radically different from previous iPhones. However, iPhone setup has not changed much. However, while you may find yourself on a familiar floor, there are still a lot of small things to do before you launch your new phone for the first time (or soon thereafter). Let's take a look at how to set up the new iPhone XS in the right way.

Prepare iPhone XS the right wayWith iPhone XS, you'll be able to take advantage of Apple's automatic setup program. If you're coming from an old iPhone without Face ID, you'll find that the Touch ID has disappeared. (This means that you will only have to save one face, instead of several fingers.)


If you're using a serial upgrade tool, and you're coming from an old iPhone X, nothing will change. But you'll still need to upgrade the same way.

Top Android Apps 2018: Download it now The best free Android apps

Best Android Apps - Introduction
Ten years have passed since the announcement of Android, and it was a decade ago. But there was no better time to hop on board, as the Google Play store exploded in recent years, with applications spreading to meet all your needs.

The problem lies in: having a large number of them, even with Editors' Picks, Featured, Best Selling, Top Paid, and Top Free categories there to help.

There are things you can do to filter the winners of the wannabes. Google creates a list of apps that you recommend based on previous downloads, so this is often the place to start.

You can also filter by new versions if you just want to see the latest things to get to the store. Or, if you want an app similar to an app, look for that app and see what appears.

Of course, using user feedback and ratings is an essential part of ensuring that your applications are of high quality. But the easiest (and best) way to find…

Alibaba sets new Singles’ Day record with $31B in sales, but growth is slowing Alibaba scored another blockbuster Singles’ Day after customers around the world shopped in stores and online on the tenth edition of its November 11 shopping festival. That puts this year’s gross merchandise volume – a measure for the dollar value of total transactions – at a staggering $30.8 billion, although the company recorded its lowest-ever annual growth rate for the event.
