Even if your mobile device already took control over you, there are some ways out of possible dilemmas and it’s not necessary to make extensive use of your brain. Just look at my collage to see what can be done.
The worst case for a mobileholic is malfunctioning of her/his beloved companion (stats say that ‘his’ is more likely than ‘her’). A common problem is mismanagement of the device’s memory.
Think of it like this:
You want to send money to an account and already looked up the account number. Somebody asks you ‘What time do we have our appointment with Mr. Smith?’. After answering, your short-term memory containing the account number is deleted or the account number you are sure it’s right now contains transposed digits.
You have to reboot and load your memory with the account number. If you don’t look up the account number again your money transfer might fail.
Regarding your device an app may execute an unwanted operation which might freeze it e.g. by running into an endless loop. You tap on a control but the app doesn’t react or delivers wrong information to the brain of your device, the processor in cooperation with the memory.
A REBOOT removes any not-wanted elements associated with apps or the operating system in the device’s memory and trimming it down to the core elements.
If you are already on a 6 or 6 Plus, the Sleep/Wake button got a new home on the side of the device to put it comfortably within reach.
Thanks for dropping by.
