The iPhone Notification Center allows us to see all our notifications at a glance, without having to open each application individually. A most useful resource to find out what is happening in our digital ecosystem quickly and easily and also to prevent anything from being overlooked.

However, sometimes it may be convenient to disable access to Notification Center when the iPhone is locked, either for privacy reasons or to avoid distractions. Something that we can do very easily and according to our preferences and the use that we give to the iPhone.

Several reasons for a very easy and fast adjustment

By default, when we receive a notification, it appears on the iPhone lock screen and also added to Notification Center. We can access the Notification Center by sliding our finger from the top center of the screen downwards or by sliding it up from the center of the screen if the iPhone is locked. We will see all our notifications in a list and the same can be done by anyone with access to our phone.

It is true that the text of the notifications will not be visible until we unlock the phone. And it is also true that the individual notifications, the most recent, will continue to appear unless we deactivate them for each of the applications that we consider. But without going too far and making checking notifications overly complicated, disabling access to Notification Center with locked iPhone is an interesting middle ground.

we can also want turn it off to avoid distractions. In addition to setting a focus state, if you’re trying to focus on a task and don’t want to be distracted by the temptation to check notifications, turning off Notification Center while iPhone is locked adds a little extra friction to that query.

Given the reasons, let’s review how to configure our iPhone so that it only shows us our notifications when it is unlocked, the steps are very simple:

  1. We open the app Settings on our iPhone or iPad.
  2. We came in Face ID and code either Touch ID and code.
  3. We enter the code of our iPhone or iPad.
  4. At the bottom we deactivate notification center.

Let us also note that we can disable other options like Today View and Search either Control center, all with the intention of making it so that no one without the code of our iPhone can access any of the information it shows. A simple process that can be carried out in a few steps and very interesting to have greater control over our notifications and information in general.

Apple and Google must ban TikTok according to a US senator

Michael Bennet, a Democratic US Senator from Colorado, is calling on Apple and Google to ban the TikTok app from the App Store and Play Store respectively. He cites national security reasons.

Banned for TikTok?

The TikTok social network is controlled by the Chinese group ByteDance and it has already been accused of collecting user data and then sharing it with the Chinese government. The company has always denied these accusations, but doubts remain among some politicians, especially in the United States.

So here is US Senator Michael Bennet who wrote a letter to Tim Cook (Apple boss) and Sundar Pichai (Google boss) asking them to ban TikTok, saying that no company subject to the “The dictates of the Chinese Communist Party should not have the power to accumulate so much data on the American people or provide content to nearly a third of our population”. He writes :

TikTok’s vast influence and aggressive data collection pose a specific threat to US national security because of its parent company’s obligations under Chinese law. Article 7 of China’s National Intelligence Law decrees that any organization or citizen must support, assist and cooperate with state intelligence work. Article 14 gives Chinese state security agencies the power to demand cooperation from companies like ByteDance, while Articles 16 and 17 allow intelligence officers to access relevant materials and files and use its communication tools and facilities.

He goes on to cite a June 2022 article revealing that TikTok employees had access to US user data between September 2021 and January 2022. “Everything is seen in China”had indicated an employee of the social network.

In view of the situation, the senator concludes his letter by stating: “Given these serious and growing concerns, I urge you to immediately remove TikTok from your respective app stores”.

The case of the voluntary slowing down of iPhone by Apple (battery gate), which, a few years ago, had earned the Cupertino company several strap lifts from international regulators, is bouncing back once again in South Korea. Against all expectations, the South Korean justice has indeed rejected a class action that pointed to the voluntary clamping of the iPhone in order, according to Apple, to save battery power and avoid an unexpected shutdown of the device. The proceedings initiated in court also argued that this restraint was a form of planned obsolescence whose objective was to encourage the purchase of a new iPhone.

Apple therefore escapes a new trial and possible compensation. The plaintiffs claimed no less than 1.64 million dollars in damages, an amount which would have been to be distributed among 9,800 people (owners or ex-owners of iPhone). Admittedly, the battery gate All the same, it dates back to 2017 – the year in which an iOS update reduced the performance of the iPhone’s processor to avoid unexpected shutdowns – but for those concerned, this does not change much.
