Is there any way to turn off the distracting flashing at the top of the screen when hotspot is in use?

When hotspot is in use, a message near the top of the screen on the iphone says "Personal Hotspot: 1 Connection".  New in IOS 7.1 is that this message repeatedly fades in and out (about once per second) rather than remaining fixed, and it creates a distraction while one is using the phone.  Not sure how other people feel, but it literally makes me (slightly) nauseas to have it continually wax and wane.  In 7.0.3 the message was fixed - it did not fade in and out.
Under Settings->General->Accessibility I have already set "Reduce Motion" on.  I would think that would be the place to disable such repeated patterns.

You could try a reboot:  Press and hold BOTH the power and home buttons at the SAME time for at least 10 seconds (ignore the red slider to shut down) until the Apple Logo appears, then let go of both buttons and your iPad should restart.  If that doesn't get rid of the volume control box on your screen, it's time to make an appointment with the Genius Bar at your Apple Store, and they can send your iPad off for service.

  • When sharing screen from work with my home computer, is there any way to turn off the display at home?

    Hi, sorry if this is a silly question, but when I'm viewing my desktop on the home computer from work (as in I've connected by finding my computer in the finder and hit the "Share Screen" button - is there any way to turn off the display at home? It seems a bit of a waste of power to have the screen on when I'm not actually there - I just need to be able to see all my programs etc on the remote screen in order to use them. My home computer is a 2011 iMac running latest Mountain Lion, work is a 2010 MacBook Pro.
    Thanks in advance!

    I've set up another user on my home Mac and left that one logged in. Now when I connect from work it asks me if I want to share the screen or log on virtually as my user. I think choosing the second option doesn't power up the screen.

  • Is there any way to turn off the auto formatting in Pages?  I just want to type a letter and add pictures and titles, and Pages keeps changing font sizes and doesn't let me "Do it my way".  I HATE this!

    Is there any way to turn off the auto formatting in Pages?  I'm using a blank document, so I figured I could write my letter and add pictures any way I wanted to.  But NO!  Pages keeps changing the font size!  I typed a large heading as a title, and when I try to change to a smaller font for the body of the letter, it changes the size back to the larger size!  I am getting SO FRUSTRATED!  I've spent over an hour trying to get the stupid program to let me just type my letter!  Can anyone help?

    The only one left is the "unsubmitted text" dialogue, which would not be a problem if I were not a Facebook user; after updating the "Richard is..." field (which does not require a manual submit to actually send) I get the above message. This is obviously Safari just not realising that the info has been sent and is therefore (I imagine) one for Apple themselves to answer!!
    You're welcome Rich. Glad to help.
    Not being a Facebook User, I'm not sure how to respond to the error situation. However, this would be something to report to Apple as a bug via the Safari Menu. First, open to the page in question, then select "Report Bugs to Apple".

  • I noticed that touch id can be bypassed by swiping and entering passcode.  Is there any way to turn off the passcode, so the phone can ONLY be unlocked using your fingerprint?

    I noticed that touch id can be bypassed by swiping the screen and entering your passcode.  Is there any way to turn off the passcode, so the phone can ONLY be unlocked via fingerprint?  I liked the idea of having the extra security of a fingerprint sensor, but not if the phone can still be unlocked using only the passcode.  Then, what's the point of touch id?  Am I missing something here?

    What happens if the touch ID sensor gets broken?  It is a backup method to get in to your device.
    Consider editing your lock screen passcode, changing it from a simple 4 digit code, to a longer more complex password.

  • Is there any way to turn off the ical feature whereby someone emails you a meeting date/time and it automatically goes on your iCal?

    Is there any way to turn off the iCal feature whereby when someone emails you a meeting date/time and it automatically appears on your calendar?  Once there they can't even be edited or deleted.

    Greetings,
    What version of the Mac OS are you running (Apple > About this Mac)?
    You should be able to delete events in iCal as long as they are not from a "Subscription" calendar.  Subscriptions show up on the left hand side of iCal under the "Subscription" category if you have any.
    You can tell iCal to not check your mail program for invites by going and unchecking the box found in iCal > Preferences > Advanced > "Automatically retrieve..."
    Hope that helps!

  • Is there any way to turn off keypad sounds when making a phone call?

    I am a new user to iphone....is there any way to turn off sounds of keypad when making a manual phone call of someone not in address book?
    Thanks

    If I understand the question correctly, it is not about turning off keyboard clicks, it's about silencing the beeps made when manually keying in a  phone number. With keyboard clicks turned off, the beeps still sound when keying in a phone number. If I'm reading the iPhone User Guide correctly, it explains how to turn off keyboard clicks but not how to silence the   beeps when keying in a phone number. The only way I have found to silence the beeps is to put the phone into silent mode.

    Hi tdennehy
    Well, first of all thanks a lot for your replay. We have perfect LOS with certainly more than 60% of the Fresnel zone being clear. The Yagi antennas are pointed at each other with no doubt, we actually got while in the "install root" and "install non-root" bridge mode the I and R LEDs on and stable, and S blinking. At times we got all the LEDs blinked fast but I guess we were passing through some strong signal concentrations. Heh, the client sugested to install the Yagi antennas as the omni but I just ingnored him, what else could I say hehe.
    When we were installing all the equipment I had a play with different channels and it seemd like CH 1 worked best. The antennas use the cable they come with because the BR-1310 bridges we have installed right beneath the antennas, only the coaxials cables go down to the office to the power injectors.
    Please see the attached screenshot from the signal and SNR reading. It seems like we have a little bit of noise. The signal was -61dB to -63dB on the installation day but 2 weeks later it went down to about -65dB.
    So, you suggest we rotate both Yagi antennas by 90 degrees correct? I guess one needs to be turned clockwise and another anticlockwise correct? What de we actually gain by doing that? We change the polarization from vertical to horizontal? Could you please explain it to me a little bit more?
    Thanks in advance for sharing your experience. I am going to troubleshoot this on Monday so I would be great if you could give me some sugesstions. I thought of changing the Yagi antennas to 19dB direccional flat pannel of 3rd party but with this distance 13,5dB yagi I think are sufficient. Does the "distance" settings on root bridge have impact on the signal sterngth?
    One more question, at the moment the 2 connected offices are in the same subnet so to speak in the same broadcast domain. On one site (non-root bridge)  they have up to 150 client connections to the servers on the other site (root bridge) but with 20kbps per station making it roughly 3Mbps total bandwidth needed. When they connect all at the same time, our client say the wireless link go. I really don't believe that becasue on the wireless readings we get betwenn 18 and 24Mbps so it should be way more than enough. Do you think by putting both sites in different VLANs would help a little bit so the local traffic would not need to be broadcasted over the wireless link back and forward? Can you shed on that a little bit of your experience? I suspect they have something to do with the switching on local site because when I was pinging the non-root bridge from the local site but connected to a different switch then is connected the Cisco bridge, I got funny reposnses, between 5 and 40ms over ethernet with 10 connections to the remote site over the wireless link but when we pingged the same CIsco bridge from the local site but connecte to the same switch as the Cisco bridge the responses were 1ms. It makes me think that they have some broadcast storming on the local site and that also propagates the wireless link...
