Hide your apps inside an invisible folder with this hack


Once this is done, you should see your folders and dock disappear into the background, like below. If you chose the white wallpaper and still see the dock faintly at the bottom, there’s an alternative white wallpaper you can use instead.


Go to the Settings app on your device, and make your way to General > Accessibility > Increase Contrast. If you’re using the gray wallpaper, ensure that Reduce Transparency is toggled on, but switch it off if you’re using the white image.


Set the gray or white image to be your wallpaper by going to the Photos app, selecting the picture you want and tapping the Share icon. Then you can tap on Use as Wallpaper to set the picture as your wallpaper. Don’t worry about perspective or anything like that, just tap Set and you’re good to go.


In order to pull this off, you need either a solid gray or white wallpaper. You can select one of the images below, since the trick requires these specific shaes of gray or white, along with the thin gray border you’ll see around the white wallpaper. One important note is that this trick does not work reliably on the 6 Plus or Plus. To try it, make sure you change display settings to “Zoomed” to get it to possibly work.


Have you ever wished you could hide apps on your Home screen so others couldn’t see them? Maybe you don’t want to advertise what financial institutions you use, or don’t want others to see which dating apps you have installed. You could shuffle them off to the far reaches of your iPhone’s Home screens, but wouldn’t it be nice if you could simply have an invisible folder without jailbreaking your handset? Thanks to this trick, discovered by Jose Rodriguez and sent in by T Eccentricities, that’s possible. This trick works on iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch devices, but it’s a bit sketchy getting it to work on the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus.

Place The Complete Network Together With The Apple Airport Extreme Base Station


The first time you bought a computer, just about all you needed for being connected was a modem and Internet access. Now with so many devices accessing the internet, you’ll probably need a wireless router for your home.

If you would like a good solution for your home, school or business, then you almost certainly want the Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station. This router offers you an extremely fast and pretty secure wireless network. You’ll have the capacity to connect your home entertainment devices, backup systems and printer. It ensures high level performances for all of your products by simply operating in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands at the same time. You can also have visitors on your network to view just the internet. As many as fifty contacts might be made simultaneously. You can also join a USB hard drive to the router for a network accessible shared drive.

The Apple Airport Extreme uses the Wireless-N specifications which enable it to transmit multiple data streams using multiple-input and multiple-output. This leads to five times the data transfer speeds of those employing 802.11g wireless networks, in addition to twice the range. Mac computers, as well as PCs are compatible with it, and so are wireless devices like , iPhone and iPod touch. Because the router makes use of both 2.4 GHz and 5GHz ranges at the same time, the units will always have maximum range and speed.

The connection to the bands will be completed automatically by the router. It features printing capabilities which are wireless, and do not even require a wired connection to the computer. All you do is link the printer to the router and you can see it on your list of printers on your Mac or PC. The networking technology used by Airport Extreme gives all users the ability to use one centrally located printer. Everything you want to share across your network might be connected to a USB hub that is certainly connected to the Airport Extreme. You can connect a hard drive, printer or multiple printers or hard drives.

When you first began, you were just one person having one computer. You didn’t accomplish much except search online and not much else. You may have never had a wireless network setup and even owned a router. You little by little learned and expanded your total operation, and now you have a whole network linked with your Apple Airport Extreme Base Station that works better than you hoped.
