Tired of battery drainage due to media autoplay? Here’s how you can take care of it.
Having automatic configurations on your Apple devices is a daunting experience, especially when you try to save up some juice for your phone or any Apple devices. In some cases, you would love to have those options, particularly capturing moments shared with your loved ones. However, you would still like to be in control of your phone, so here are the steps on how to disable automatic play on videos and live photos.
How to Disable on iPhone and iPad
On iOS 13 and iPad OS 13, Apple usually configured in automatic plays of videos and Live Photos when you’re scrolling through your Photos tab. Good thing the media is muted so you will be safe from any embarrassments. However, this becomes annoying when you’re browsing through the months or year section on the Photos tab in silence.
Disabling this feature is as simple. All you have to do is open the “Settings” app on your iPhone or iPad and go to the “Photos” section.
Now, scroll down until you see the “Photos Tab” section. Here tap the toggle next to the “Auto-Play Videos And Live Photos” option to disable the feature.
When you check on your photos tab, you’ll see the changes and be able to enjoy reminiscing the good old times alone and silently.
The Photos app on macOS Catalina (and higher) has an autoplay feature. Suppose you find yourself again scrolling through your Photos tab, thinking whether you can go back to the past and change it. Unfortunately, we don’t have steps for that. But during scrolling photos, you’ll find previews of videos and Live Photos. They’ll play automatically as you pass through them.
Thankfully, there’s a way to disable this feature on the Mac, but with changing the past or going back to it, we have none.
In order for you to change the feature, you’ll have to open the Photos app and click the “Photos” button from the menu bar. Then choose the “Preferences” option.
In the “General” tab, uncheck the box next to the “Autoplay Videos And Live Photos” option to disable the feature.
Foldable iPhone Prototypes Are Almost Here
According to the source, the tests were completed in a Foxconn factory in Shenzhen, China showing progressive results to its internal hardware of the company’s folding hinge system for two different mobile devices.
The first has undergone testing in which it’s a dual-screen model which was rumored to occur by Jon Prosser. He explained that this model used two separate display panels which are connected by the hinge. Though the prototype iPhone features two separate displays connected by a hinge which makes it also look seamless. The company has claimed and patented two separate iPhone displays that could also create a single foldable device with a hinge.
