If you have downloaded iOS 11, you have no doubt noticed all the exciting new horrible “features” that change the way you interact with your phone. Here’s how to fix at least some of them:

HOW TO GET RID OF THE DO NOT DISTURB WHILE DRIVING “FEATURE”:

Settings>Do Not Disturb>Do Not Disturb While Driving> set this to Manually.

This will keep the Apple Police at bay and your iPhone will function as usual in the car.

HOW TO KEEP YOUR PHOTOS AND MOVIES COMPATIBLE WITH EVERYTHING ELSE YOU OWN:

Apple switched the way it captures movies and video in iOS 11 — change this IMMEDIATELY — Unless you want to live in photo and video hell when you go to share or save things, Apple changed the format in which it stores photos and movies (no longer JPG or MP4)….go into

settings>camera>format and choose MOST COMPATIBLE

This will force the format back to JPG and MP4 and your photos and videos will once again share properly with your other apps, message programs, etc.

HOW TO FIX THE DOCK ON YOUR IPAD:

Unless you want to go insane with the new dock “feature” — go to

Settings>General>Multitasking and Dock> and TURN OFF the Show Suggested and Recent Apps.

While you are at it, you will want to drag the FILES app they put on your dock off of it and into your Apple Crap folder.

ASSORTED FIXES:

Under Settings>Emergency SOS> turn OFF Auto Call

 

I’ll add other tips as I come across them
