Multitaskers reduce productivity by FORTY PERCENT across the board. When multitasking, it takes twice as long to accomplish a certain task AND it increases errors by 50%.

How to Quickly Restart an iOS device with the Assistive Touch Accessibility
Hello. And welcome to another. Apple this podcast. Hello, very one. My name is Christopher and to damn going to showing you something very very neat that I have just discovered and that is simply how quickly restart your iphone now for whatever reason apple in their infinite wisdom or stupidity or arrogance or whatever all let you be the judge as to what that is has decided that there is no need to add a restart option in the power menu. When you hold your power button. I don't know why this is I have sent him numerous requests to add this feature. They have not more people may have to contact them and request this. But I found a work around that actually works very well. So what does basically involves you doing is going into the assistive touch accessibility feature and configuring it to restart your phone? So. Before I get started. I should mention that. I am using an iphone five s with twelve point one. I'm running voice over I'm totally blind. So here we go. I'm going to open up accessibility settings. Open accessibility sightings. Here are the settings for accessibility. General back button right now, we need to go down to assist of touch vision voice over on what? Interact. Switch associate touch on button selected accessibility back but night here we are always touch heading associate touch on. Obviously, you wanna make sure that this is on this won't work. Touch allows you to use your iphone. If you have difficulty touching the screen, or if you require adoptive accessory. So that's something else that I want to mention this is also useful for people that have motor issues or can't press buttons. Or even if you have vision, this is very useful customize top level menu button. That is the assistant touch menu where you can customize all kinds of different actions. I'm going to ignore that. Because I don't use this feature. Personally. The only thing I'm interested in doing is quickly rebooting my phone custom actions heading. All right. So these are custom actions that you can perform single tap restart button. Single tap double tap. None button long press. None button custom actions allow you to interact directly with the assistant coach icon without opening the menu. Now, if you're using voice over you need to double these gestures. So single tap becomes double double becomes. Triple long press is the voice over long long press. Jess. After et cetera et cetera. These are for non voiceover users. I had a low pass idi- forty percent button. I believe that is a visual feature. I'm not going to concern myself with that for this demonstration cost of gestures. Heading create new gesture button, and you can make custom gestures which is also not relevant, and I have not learned that. So let's go back long double customers single tap restart button. And I've chosen to do this. You could send it to a double tap, which if you're using voice over would be triple that way, you could still access the menu. But in this case, I don't care selected as single tap heading none open menu to you. Got none. Open menu home. Notifications siri. These are all self explanatory control center. Lock screen volume up volume down renewed accessibility shortcut shake app. Switcher screen shot blocked rotation pinch. Double tap. SOS analytics selected restart and restart is the one that you want to choose speak screen pass through to pass through to app. And that's it. I the lead on the newer iphones. You have more options. But I am not sure because I don't have a newer iphone. So that's basically all you have to do. How? I'm gonna go back to my home screen and find the assistive touch icon, which by default. Get set to the bottom right hand corner. Bottom bottom, right, hand, half of my screen, at least on the five s it it may be different on your phone or the larger phones. Page to afford settings books. Stocks books set page to a four adjustable doc muse page spokes, stocks weather, associate touch system menu. Actually, no, it's not it is in the top right corner. Where I left it which is interesting because I have tried recording. This a few times and whenever I would restart my phone. It would default back to the bottom right hand corner. But I guess that has been fixed or something that was not a bug. I'm not sure what what's going on with that. If you wanna move this around you find the icon camera camera orientation locked associate touch touch menu. You find that double tap and hold and drag your finger to her you wanna put it I'm fine with it being where it is. If you wanna customize it feel free to do. So now, whether associate touch touch menu, all I have to do at this point is double tap with one finger. Stay alert. Are you? Sure you want to restart your iphone, and this is your last chance to back out cancel button, you can either cancel or restart. So there's no going back from this point either choose to do it or you don't restart button. So I'm going to choose restart. And my phone is restarting just like that. That is beautiful. That is wonderful. Why apple can't add that to the power menu? Is beyond me. I have no idea. One of the many things about apple that really really makes me scratch my head and. Well. Apple is apple I suppose, I don't know. Anyway, I hope this has helped I find it really useful because as a totally blind user, I don't wanna have to press and hold the button. And then wait and hope that my phone is actually turning on. 'cause the only way that I know it's actually on is when voice over comes up and starts talking. Speaking of which I also think that apple needs to add a vibration that begins pass code field zero of six values entered and as you can tell my phone's backup, I'm gonna lock it. So that doesn't take very much time at all. But as I was saying, I think apple should add a vibration when you're device first boots up. I've sent them in Email about this a long time ago. It's been. Seemingly ignored. So maybe more people need to do it. But I think it would be very helpful if your device vibrated, especially if you're blind, and you just want to know, if your device is actually booting or maybe even if you're blind and deaf, which in that case that would be really helpful. But I hope he goes a found this demo useful. You can leave me comments on the apple this podcast page. You guys take care.

Ep. 346 - Magic in Contradictions
Absorb three hundred and forty six three sixty five day is Sunday. The eleventh of November I wanna talk today about the magic in contradictions because there's been a few things I've posted over recent weeks and even just a couple of days ago, where people sort of said, well, hang on isn't that a contradiction to something you said before specifically things like say to to be favor or something like permission marketing, and yet also be advocating people spend more time on ads or this idea of encouraging empowerment, but at the same time insisting on sort of maniacal control of the situation. And I don't think there's damaging those contradictions. In fact, I actually believe that in in being able to hold those two contradictory opinions to country thoughts and to be able to utilize them and play them based on the circumstance. I think somewhere in between is way that magic happens. So. You know, done obsess about every single thing that somebody says he's right for every circumstance. Because of course, it's not circumstances. Change in some cases. There will be times. When permission marketing is the only way forward there'll be other times when you really should be focused on placing ads because ads we'll get you a better result by stone. The circumstances you're looking at that time. So, you know, my, I guess my point is the more. I think about the contradictions in the things that I see in the things that I think I actually believe that that is kind of strength in. I think the ability to see those contradictions accept them for they are not dismiss them. But not necessarily play them. I think that's where the magic happens just thought. Anyway, let me know what you think already. That's today. Thanks shooting in I will be back again tomorrow. So yeah. The podcast.
