Here is how you can fix iOS 10 iCloud calendar spam if you have encountered with this issue. During last week a lot of iDevices users have been affected by the iCloud calendar spam. If you began seeing an invitation to an event in your calendar listings for Ugg Boots, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and other products, it’s because spammers took advantage of a long-available feature in iCloud that extracts invites from email and presents them as notifications in calendar apps.
You must think, just hit “Decline” and it will go away. That’s the worst thing you can do. Now the spammers know that this particular address is actually real. So here is the guide that help you to fix this issue.
How To Block iCloud Calendar Spam Invites In iOS 10 Without Alerting Spammers
The most annoying part of this is the notifications that come in. There’s a way to stop in-app notifications for new invites and send them to your email instead. There, thanks to better spam filters, it will get caught. But this also means you won’t get any sort of notifications for any sort of invite.
Step 1: First, open iCloud.com via a desktop browser and login. (Apple doesn’t allow you to use iCloud.com via mobile Safari.)
Step 2: Click on “Calendar“.
Step 3: Click the gear icon in the bottom of the screen and pick “Preferences“ option.
Step 4: Head to the “Advanced” section, scroll down to “Invitations” and select the radio button next to “Email to firstname.lastname@example.org”. Then hit “Save“.
Now spam invitations will appear in your inbox—or, more likely, get automatically marked as spam and never bother you.
A lot of people have been affected by this spam and all of them hope that Apple is acknowledged with this issue and will seed iOS 10 iCloud calendar spam fix in next software update.

If you're trying to find iOS 10 Safari video bug fix you should read this post. According to multiple users reports they have encountered a bug which causes their iDevices to glitch out after watching a malicious video link in Safari. As the result the device becomes slow before freezing or crashing. This is not the first time when users report about the issue. As it turns out it is a longstanding bug as iPhones and other iDevices running iOS 5 were found to be affected by the same glitch.
How To Fix Safari Video Bug On iOS 10 iPhone
It appears that the top level domains hosting this bug video appear to be vk.com and testtrial.site90.net, but actually the video could be hosted on other sites quite easily.
This bug is obviously annoying though not on the same level as similar flaws that crashed Apple devices in the past, like a Messages exploit that would crash iOS and recently there was a bug that has been sent to users in the form of invitation message to enable new WhatsApp video calling feature. As it is longstanding bug it has touched iOS 10-10.1.1 devices as well but fortunately there is a fix for this issue.
To fix iOS 10 Safari video bug on your device you need to do a hard reset. For this press and hold the Home and power buttons in the same time. Those who own an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus should press the power and volume down buttons at the same time for about ten seconds to force a hard restart.
It is expected that Apple will release software update with the fix so iDevices users would be able to watch these maliciously crafted videos and they won’t crash their devices or force them to become unresponsive.

Reading this post you will learn how to bypass Do Not Disturb mode for individual contacts in iOS 10 in order to get their texts and calls even with the aforementioned mode turned on. Do Not Disturb is the useful feature in iOS, but not all iDevices users knows about all its advantages. Do Not Disturb silences calls and alerts when iPhone is locked. If you are in a meeting or don’t want to be distracted by incoming calls or random notifications, you can enable DND to remain at peace. But, there is one problem-when DND is enabled, you will miss out important calls or alerts.
But starting with iOS 10 this problem has been solved as now users can choose on a per-contact basis whether they are notified of incoming calls or messages even when their iPhone is in Do Not Disturb mode. So follow easy steps below to learn how to bypass Do Not Disturb mode for individual contacts in iOS 10.
How To Bypass Do Not Disturb Mode For Individual Contacts In iOS 10
Step 1: Launch Contacts app on your iOS 10 iPhone, open the contact you want to enable notifications for and choose to Edit it in the top right corner.
Step 2: Depending on whether you want to enable notifications for calls or messages, pick either Ringtone or Text Tone. You can enable both the options depending on your need.
Step 3: Finally, toggle the switch next to Emergency Bypass.
From now onwards, you will receive audio and vibratory alerts from this contact. If you ever want to disable this feature, just follow the steps as mentioned earlier and turn off the switch in the step 3.
Apple should have added this feature much earlier as it is really useful for those who don't won't to disturb someone overnight or during meeting and don't want to miss out important calls.

We offer one of the useful tips on how to save storage on iPhone 7 Plus. We will talk about the Portrait mode. iOS 10.1 software release brought this feature exclusively to your iPhone 7 Plus. Portrait mode using both iPhone 7 Plus twelve-megapixel cameras and machine learning to take depth of field pictures. This effect is known as a “bokeh”.
You can find this new feature on iPhone 7 Plus in the stock Camera app: swipe to cycle through the available camera modes. You'll find Portrait mode between Photo and Square. Portrait mode is not just for humans, you can use it on pets, plants and inanimate objects.
By default your iPhone 7 Plus saves both the original twelve-megapixel photo and its depth of field counterpart. These Portrait shots of course require double storage.
So if you have not enough storage problem an easy way to save storage space on your iPhone 7 Plus is to turn off the feature that takes duplicates. If you’re a frequent Portrait shooter follow the easy steps below.
How To Shut Off Portrait Mode Duplicates On iPhone 7 Plus
Turning off the Portrait mode duplicate shot is a very simple process that takes place in Settings.
Step 1. On your iOS device Go to Settings > Photos & Camera.
Step 2. Underneath the Portrait Mode slide the toggle Keep Normal Photo right to the OFF position. From now, when you take photos in Portrait mode, your iPhone will only keep the photo with the depth-of-field bokeh effect.
Of course this will save storage on your iPhone 7 Plus but I'm not sure that you'll be satisfied with pictures taking in Portrait mode without duplicates. But you can always go through the above steps and turn duplicates back on at any time you need.

According to new Apple's smartphone owners reports they are trying to find the fix for iPhone 7 Plus poor image quality issue. One of the exclusive features for the iPhone 7 Plus is its dual-camera setup on the back, but for some owners, it’s not all that positive. As per frustrated users reports they are experiencing “poor image quality” in their photos, with some event pointing out a “water-color effect” in their photos. Some owners are pointing out their pictures are blurry as well.
Digging into the issue, there have been 1,004 reported issues across 31 Apple retail stores in the United States, all since launch back in September. The majority of reports are attributed to “infant failures,” or displays broken by the user. Within those reports, only 8 devices have confirmed camera issues, and not all of those are tied to poor image quality problem on iPhone 7 Plus.
So how can you fix poor image quality issue on iPhone 7 Plus. Apple is acknowledged with this problem but as the root cause of this issue has not been discovered there isn’t fix just yet. Some users have pointed out that they’ve been able to fix it by disabling the optimized storage option on their iOS 10.1.1 iPhone, while others have tried with no luck. Some see the problem only in the stock Photos app on their device, while others are not seeing an issue with RAW photos in the Lightroom app.
As there is no iPhone 7 Plus poor image quality issue fix just yet the only thing owners of these devices can do is to contact AppleCare, or make an appointment at a Genius Bar for further assistance, and documentation of this problem.
Apple has already fixed the issue where Health data could not be viewed by some iPhone 7 Plus users in iOS 10.1.1 public update, so it is expected the problem with poor image quality should be fixed in the next software update.
Public iOS 10.1.1 download links are live and you can get them in this post below. As you know on Monday Apple released fresh iOS update for the major iOS 10 release. The iOS 10.1.1 update comes only one week after iOS 10.1 was launched. and this is the fifth software update for the iOS 10 platform.
The biggest feature added in iOS 10.1 was a new portrait camera mode, designed to make the most of those dual sensors, transit directions for Japan, stability improvements, and some bug fixes.
The reason why Apple quickly issued iOS 10.1.1 software update is because it fixes a bug that was revealed and reported by many users last week. Apple declined to reply to all requests to acknowledge the bug until now.
The iOS 10.1.1 is relatively small software update at under 70MB, which indicates that it is a minor update with a few bug fixes. There weren’t any betas of iOS 10.1.1 either. And the changelog of the iOS 10.1.1 software update says: “This update fixes bugs including an issue where Health data could not be viewed for some users.”
There were many complaints about health data not being visible following the iOS 10.1.1 update within the Apple Communities forum so it is a relief that Apple turned around a fix in a short amount of time.
You can install iOS 10.1.1 by connecting your device to iTunes or downloading it by going to Settings > General > Software Update. The iOS 10.1.1 update is available for the following devices: iPhone 5 and later, iPad 4th generation and later and iPod touch 6th generation and later. But if you have some troubles using that way you can grab public iOS 10.1.1 download links for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch below and update your device manually.
