Apple Watch :Speed up or troubleshoot when Apps Behave Oddly

Apple Watch Troubleshooting

Hey Guys this is dhaval and in this post i am going to tell you how to troubleshoot your apple watch when it behaves very oddly.

Why this happens?
Its evident that no technology is perfect and this is same with Apple also, SO thus here is the method..

We also covered a similar article for iPhone 

  • Press and hold the side button (the button just below the Digital Crown) until the shutdown screen appears.
  • Let go of the side button, then press and hold the Digital Crown.
  • After a few seconds, a brief animation will return you home screen of your watch.
  •  The end result is the app being closed. This process is specific to WatchOS 3.

I hope that this method worked for you! Tell your opinions in the comment section below :)

The Total Rumour round up of iPhone 8 (2017 iPhone)

iPhone 8 , iPhone 7s?  via - iDrop News


Hey Guys it been more then 10 months i guess since i have wrote on Apple Central. But yes again i am reviving  the blog :).

Its that time of year where you would et many leaks of the latest upcoming iPhone. I thought lets take this topic only and we would analyse  some of the leaks .. wether they are true or not.. (to an extent.




  1. Screen
Yes the First change that you would notice is the screen size.It would be end to end display. (bezel Display)


iPhone 8/iPhone X Screen panels
2.  FACE ID ,Face Detection.
Its been speculated that Apple might be ditching the physical Home button for a virtual Home Button.
Several instances of Face ID have been detected in the Latest Developer's Xcode version
Face ID to unlock the phone

3.Storage
Apple is gearing towards more storage options with the new release of the iPhone which can be 512GB variant of the phone.


iOS 11 The biggest Update to iPhone having 10 beta versions

4. iOS 11
iOS 11 is currently in BETA version and various new features are still to remain to be added to the OS like peer to peer payments (Apple Pay).


5.Wireless Charging
Various leaks have been seen and its said that the new phone would support the wireless charging finally! lets see if apple does something special in this area or not.

6. The Cost!
Yes this is the main concern for most of the apple enthusiasts. But the word is that the cost would be more then 1000 USD Dollars for the premium edition of the phone.


Just a few days left to see what apple has to give us this year. Would you mind buying an iPhone 7s version if it launches? or you would shell out more money to get hands on Anniversary edition of the iPhone?

Let us know in the comments :)

Apple Central Bids Farewell -The Story Behind



Hey Guys! This might be one of the longest post on this site.So this time this is not kind of any tutorial or anything. As you can read the title which says it all.
 " Apple Central bids farewell"

Reason-

I know there shouldn't be reason to quit something which you really love to do but I think i should state some facts before think something else..

Site has been around 1 or more year and yet due to many reasons i have not give enough time to Apple Central. and thus yes this is true. I am not able to update the site daily or able to give proper SEO optimised posts.

we are running in 90% loss from last two months. YES! I said it openly. 

If we see this trend i wont be able to pay for my domain and other services i use for this site in order to get traffic.

I started this site not for all apple updates.. I opened this site for some interesting things that you rarely find in  other sites.

Some Stats

During our peak time our Global Alexa rank was under 3lakh which was awesome as i used to give less time to Apple Central.

In this small time 20k+ unique visitors visited our site.

Our user Base were from:-
United States

India

Ukraine

United Kingdom

Canada

Germany

Malaysia

Italy

Brazil

Philippines


Total we published 52 articles which led to 20K+ visits.
I didnt used any SEO technique on this Site and just only shared 1 time on my Facebook profile and few groups






Affiliations:-

We have been publishing our articles on many bookmarking sites and were active part of Indian Blogger Community.


From Now on All the sub parts of Apple Central ie the Facebook Page,the web portal and Youtube Channel would not be updated. Also All the entities under the name of  Snap Entertainment would not be updated.

The whole Apple Central entities would be up on sale soon maybe on Flippa.

I really had a lot of fun attending blogger meets, helping other people having iDevices.


So for the last time Good Bye..

Remember..
Believe in yourself cuz when you believe in yourself you can do wonders which you might not even think of.Take risks, maybe you would fail but down the lane you would look back and then you would realise why it was all perfect.
