    Move to iOS is an official app on Google Play Store by iPhone which can transfer data from Android to iPhone, i.e contacts, messages, videos, photos, etc within a few minutes, depending on the size of data. This works for iPhone 5 and latest. And requires iPhone’s latest operating system, iOS 9.

    Steps For Transferring Data With Move to IOS

    Step 1

    Search for Move to iOS app on your Google Play Store and download it on your Android device. It’s supported on Android 4.0 to latest Android OS.

    Step 2

    While you’re setting up your iPhone, an Apps and Data Screen will pop up, there you’ll be shown four options to choose from. Select the Move Data from Android option and proceed.

    Step 3

    Open the Move to iOS app on your Android device and after accepting the terms and conditions, tap “next” on the Find Your Code screen.

    Step 4

    After tapping continue on your iPhone, you’ll be given a code; enter that code in your Android device and then proceed.

    Step 5

    Your Android phone will pop up a screen where you’ll be able to choose the content you wish to transfer. Do so, and you’re both devices will connect with each other through WiFi, so it’s important for WiFi to be connected on both devices.

    Step 6

    Transferring data from android to iPhone will take time depending on the size of your data. Your Android device may show that the transferring process has completed but your iPhone may keep working on it. So be patient.

  • Reverse Tethering – Share PC’s Internet Connection With Android

    Tethering is a feature in smart phones that allows user to share the internet connection of an Android device with a PC.

    You can also use this feature in the opposite way that is called Reverse Tethering that allows user to share the PC’s Internet connection with Android device. You need a wired connection for this method so that you can allow one device to use the internet data of another device.If you have a WiFi modem, then you can do this method wirelessly but other than that you can use a USB cable for reverse tethering. 

    Reverse Tethering – Share PC’s Internet Connection With Android

      1. First of all you need to turn on USB debugging on your Android device. To do so, go to Settings, then go to Developer Options and then check the box next to USB Debugging to turn it on.
      2. Now, download the Android Reverse Tethering Tool from this link and then extract the zip file.
      3. Open the extracted folder and search for the Android Tool file.
      4. Open the AndroidTool.exe application and wait for the Android Reverse Tethering 3.19 to start.
      5. Now connect your Android device with your PC using USB cable and wait for a while for them to connect.
      6. In the Android Reverse Tethering app, look for the Refresh button.
      7. Click on the Refresh button and select your device from the menu next to the button.
      8. Now, click on the Check DNS button below the Refresh button.
      9. You can use 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 as the DNS which are an open DNS operated by Google.
      10. Under the Tools tab in the app look for Install hack (optional) option and click on that option to install Hack Connectivity. (Hack Connectivity is a module of Xposed framework that helps in fooling the android device into thinking that it is connected a WiFi and not a tethered connection.)
      11. Make sure you have a rooted device and it has the Xposed framework app installed on it.
      12. Then on your Android device click on install/updateNow restart your android device.
      13. And then, inside the Xposed framework app, check if the Hack Connectivity Service is installed under the modules category.

  • Which RAM Is Faster? — Two 4GB Sticks Of RAM Or Four 2GB Sticks Of RAM

     2x 4GB RAM is better than 4x 2GB RAM.

    While you won’t experience noticeable performance difference, the recommended configuration  2x 4GB RAM ensures a more reliable memory subsystem.

    Four sticks would cause more strain on the memory controller and motherboard chipset. It would take slightly longer for the CPU to add and retrieve data from four sticks as opposed to two.It's better to use two 2 GB modules -- not for any appreciable speed difference (although there may be a small advantage -- more in a bit) -- but for a more reliable memory subsystem.


    For this reason, 2 x 4 GB would be faster then 4 x 2 GB.

    To adjust for the higher load, many systems increase the voltage; others add a cycle to SPD’s latency settings; or reduce the clock frequency of the memory. The final two changes slightly slow down the memory.

    To conclude, while there might not be any significant measurable difference between the two configurations, the memory with just 2 modules is more reliable.
