Low iPhone 7 Screen Brightness? This Should Help

Sep 19, 2016 - 17 Comments

iPhone 7 display brightness is brighter than ever according to Apple, if it looks dim it may be software

Some iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus owners have found their new iPhone screen brightness appears dimmer than prior iPhone models. For some devices with a perceived less bright display, placing the iPhone 7 next to an iPhone 6s or earlier and turning the screen brightness up to 100% may reveal an apparent discrepancy in the display brightness (and some may notice the screen looks more warmer too, but you can fix the yellow screen with a simple adjustment). Apple markets the new iPhone 7 display as 25% brighter than prior screens, so what’s going on?

If your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus looks to have a dimmer screen, don’t panic, it might be software related. We’ll show you a simple trick that could boost the brightness level on some iPhone 7 screens that look dimmer than expected.

Fix Apps Crashing Immediately on Launch with a New iPhone 7

Sep 16, 2016 - 6 Comments

Apps crashing instantly on open with new iPhone is easy to fix

After getting a new matte black iPhone 7 Plus and setting it up as new, I discovered nearly every pre-installed app on the iPhone was crashing immediately on launch. The primary apps like Safari, Phone, and Messages worked, but any of the secondary bundled apps like Numbers, Pages, iTunes U, iMovie, Keynote, Garageband, iBooks and similar apps all crashed instantly upon opening. Sometimes if you repeatedly tried to open a specific crashing app, the app would hang on launch instead and get stuck on a white or black screen, and then eventually crash itself. Hmm…

Not to worry! Fortunately it was super easy to fix the app crashing issue, so if you experience it on a new iPhone 7 you’ll be able to get everything sorted really quickly.
