    How to Download a Copy of Your Aadhaar Card 

    It is time to link your Aadhaar number with PAN card if you plan to file tax returns on or after July 1. In case you’ve misplaced your Aadhaar card, don’t panic because you can easily download a fresh copy. It needs you to know your Aadhaar number, but you can easily look that up online. The unique 12-digit government identification is not compulsory to have, but it serves as an identity proof on most forms that you’ll fill, and some government agencies also require the Aadhaar these days. It is issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India on behalf of the Indian government.

    How to Link Aadhaar With PAN Card Online

    The good thing about Aadhaar is that unlike some other identity cards, its digital copy, downloaded from the UIDAI website, is as valid as the original card. So whether you’ve misplaced your card and need a new one, or just wanted to get a digital copy of the card to submit with a form online, the official website has you covered.

    Enrolling for Aadhaar is free and so is the process to obtain a digital duplicate; just follow the steps below and you’re done.

    How to Link Aadhaar to PAN by SMS

    Getting your UID number

    To download a copy of the Aadhaar card, you need to know your UID number or your Enrolment ID. If you’ve gotten your Aadhaar already, then it’s generally a good idea to note down the number somewhere. If you’ve misplaced the Aadhaar, then look for the enrolment form to check your Enrolment ID. In case you don’t have either, then you need to look this number up first. Here’s what you need to do:

    Go to the UIDAI website.

    Make sure that Aadhaar No (UID) is selected from the two options near the top of the screen.

    Type in your full name, as printed on the Aadhaar card.

    Type either the email address or phone number that you used to register for Aadhaar.

    Enter the characters you see in the image above Enter the Security Code.

    Click Get OTP.

    A one-time password will be sent to your email address or phone number, whichever you entered in the form. Enter this password in the form next to Enter OTP.

    Click Verify OTP.

    Now you’ll receive your Aadhaar number on via SMS or email.

    How to Downgrade iOS 11 Beta to iOS 10 

    Highlights You can go back to iOS 10.3 from iOS 11 beta The process is not as easy as installing iOS 11 beta You need to connect your iOS device to a PC or Mac

    If you are reading this, it means you probably downloaded and installed iOS 11 beta on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and are regretting the decision. Switching back to an older version of iOS is not as simple as installing iOS 11 beta. We’ve always advised you to take a complete backup of your iOS device before attempting adventurous things like switching to beta versions of iOS. If you did that, you don’t have much to worry about at all.

    If you did not take a full back up, you may lose some data while downgrading to iOS 10. There’s a simple reason for this

    How to Add Touchscreen Home Button on iPhone, iPad 

    The home button is the biggest button on iOS devices and probably the most important one. It’s a great example of what makes the iPhone and iPad so easy to use – that single button will always take you to the homescreen no matter what you’re doing. On many Android devices, home is a software button that disappears inside apps, leaving you feeling stuck, but the physical home button on iOS devices is always there. At the same time, power users can double and triple tap the button for additional functions.

    Unfortunately, this extensive usage means that the home button can become unresponsive. This can really make using the device frustrating, particularly if you’re using an older device that doesn’t support gestures. If you’re facing the same problem, then you should enable the software home button option on your iOS device, and this is how you do it:

    Open Settings.

    Go to General > Accessibility

    Scroll down to the section labeled INTERACTION and tap on AssistiveTouch.

    On the next screen, toggle AssistiveTouch to the green On position.

    A white circle with a grey box will appear on screen. Tap this circle to expand it to a big box on screen. The square Home button at the bottom of the box functions exactly like the physical home button – you can use it to single tap, double tap, or long press the home button even if there is a hardware problem. The grey box remains visible and usable in all apps.

    How to Download and Watch Amazon Prime Video Movies and TV Shows Offline 

    Highlights Prime Video lets you download movies to your Android or iOS device The offline viewing period varies from title to title You can’t download videos on your laptop

    For film and TV buffs, the new age of streaming services in India is great, but poor connections can throw a spanner in the works. The good news is that most of the popular service allow you to download these videos to watch later. Whether you want to download a movie or show during the night to watch it the next day, or whether you want to download something to watch when you’re on a flight, the option is there for you.

    We’ve written in the past about how to download videos on Netflix, and today, we’re going to walk you through the same process for Amazon Prime Video. The whole process is really simple, though there are a couple of things you need to know.

    First off, you can only download the videos to your smartphone or tablet. It’s compatible with both Android and iOS, but you cannot download the videos to your laptop. Secondly, you can download a maximum of 15 Prime titles at a time – across all devices linked to your account. Finally, the downloads are viewable only for a limited period, after which you will have to renew the file by connecting to the Internet. This period varies from title to title.

    With this in mind, here are the steps you need to follow to download videos from Amazon Prime Video on your Android or iOS device. The steps work in the same way on both.

    How to Become an Amazon Prime Member, What’s the Membership Fee, and How to Avail Free Trial 

    Highlights You can become an Amazon Prime member for Rs. 499 You can sign up for Prime without paying anything You only have to pay after the first month is over

    Amazon Prime is a loyalty programme from Amazon that charges you a membership fee, but then gives you offers such as free shipping, free next day delivery (on some orders), early access to certain Amazon sale offers, lightning deals, exclusive discounts, and also, access to Amazon Prime Video. It’s a pretty good deal overall considering you only pay a nominal price, and becomes especially lucrative when you realise it includes Prime Video streaming service too. Moreover, it gives you access to attractive deals in Prime-exclusive sales. Wondering how to become an Amazon Prime member? We detail everything you need to know.

    Amazon Prime membership fee

    The Amazon Prime membership fee is Rs. 499 for the whole year, a small sum to pay for the free shipping, bundled video streaming service, and discounts during sales. Moreover, users can opt for a free 30-day Amazon Prime trial, which entails all the benefits associated with the service without any costs involved. However, if a sale is about to start or is going on, such as the Amazon Prime Day Sale on July 10 and 11, you cannot sign for the free trail to the service.

    Amazon lets you sign up for Prime and try it out for one month before you decide whether or not you want to pay for it, and if after a month you’re not interested, just don’t renew the subscription and you won’t be charged for it at all.

    How to Create, Edit, Delete WhatsApp Status Updates 

    Highlights You can now add photos or videos as WhatsApp Status updates You can upload multiple images or clips as updates The updates all disappear after 24 hours

    When WhatsApp turned eight in February, it has launched a new feature that seems to be pointing to a future where the app moves away from text messages, and relies much more heavily on photos and short videos – the ephemeral status update. This newest feature from the Facebook owned messaging company bears more than a passing resemblance to social rival Snapchat, and the update hasn’t just added a new tab for the status in the menu on top of your screen, but also a camera button right in the middle of things, which can be used to update your status, or a contact, or group. It’s an exciting change, and it’s really straightforward too, but in case you have any doubts about how to use the feature, here’s what you need to know about the revamped WhatsApp Status updates.

    What happened to my old text WhatsApp status?

    You mean the line which most people completely ignored, leaving it on the default “Hi there, I’m using WhatsApp”? Well, that’s gone. Put the past behind you. According to some people the old text status is still visible, but it’s gone for the most of us, so try restarting the app if you’re still seeing the old status. Of course, the user backlash over the beloved text status made the company bring it back in March.

    How can I set a photo or video as my WhatsApp status?

    There are a couple of different ways to create a WhatsApp status you can do. Let’s look at them.

    How to create a WhatsApp Status using the Status option:

    Open WhatsApp. Tap on Status. Tap on My Status. If you’ve already got a status, tap the little circle with a

    How to Back Up SMS Messages on Your Android Phone 

    Highlights Backing up SMS messages isn’t a built-in feature on Android You can back up your messages with third-party applications SMS Backup and Restore is free and easy to use for this

    If you’re an Android user and need to delete the data on your phone, then you know that there are a number of good options for backing up your phone first. A lot of this can be done via the Cloud, so that the content can be brought back easily, but backing up your SMS inbox requires the use of third-party tools. There are a lot of different options on Google Play, but the question becomes which one should you use. Most of the popular ones require access to your Gmail account to automatically create and restore the backups, but if you aren’t comfortable giving this kind of access, we have a good option you can try, which we used ourselves as well to backup SMS messages on our Android phone.

    Here is everything you need to know about backing up (and restoring) your phone’s SMS archive, which can be saved on the device, mailed to yourself, or saved to the cloud. This will be useful if you need to reset your phone to factory settings, or if you’re switching to a new phone. We used SMS Backup and Restore, which was acquired by Carbonite a few years ago. Just follow these steps to backup SMS on your Android phone.

    Creating a backup of your Android phone’s SMS messages

    To create a backup of all your SMS messages, you’ll need to start by installing Carbonite SMS Backup and Restore on your phone. Once that’s done, follow these steps:

    On the welcome screen, tap on Get Started. You’ll have to grant access to files (to save the backup), contacts, SMS (obviously), and manage phone calls (to backup your call logs). Keep tapping Allow on all four pop-ups. Tap Set up a backup. Toggle phone calls off if you only want to back up your texts. You can also tap Advanced options if you want to back up MMSes or selected conversations; leave this alone if you want to back up your entire text archive. Tap Next. Now, using the toggles, select where you want to make the backup. You can choose Google Drive or Dropbox, but if you don’t want to give access then you can turn on the toggle for Your phone, and then copy the file manually. If you’re okay with the default folder tap on OK, otherwise tap on Browse and find the folder you want to save the backup in. Once that’s done, tap on Next, and then in the popup, tap on Yes. You can either set a backup schedule from the toggles in front of you, or turn off the Schedule recurring backups toggle. Then, tap on Back Up Now.
