Double tapping the home button would pop up the pictures of upper row of friends and family pictures. This also offers easy access to reach the user’s favorites and the contacts they have visited recently. But some users would not like people snooping on when they are texting or calling. They go to the extent of downgrading their gadget to iOS 7 that has none of these circular pictures or could shut them off from the settings menu. Easy way to accomplish this is to hit at contacts – calendars –show in app switcher and then turn off the toggle.

Photos not getting deleted promptly:

The Photos application available in the iOS 8 version is now featured with recently deleted folder and stocks snapshots that users have chosen to delete for at least 30 days before they get deleted completely from the device. Though this is safe and helps people from deleting important photos accidently, it could sometimes be terrible to have a wrong photo on the device. Therefore once the user choses to delete a snapshot from their main folder, they should also delete it from recently deleted folder to be sure.

Self-destruction of Voice and video messages:

This could be changed by saving the message indefinitely as a default option. To accomplish this enter settings – tap messages – tap settings. Then switch the video expiry time and audio messages expiry time to never.
