    How and Where to Get Reliance Jio SIM Card 

    Highlights Anyone can get a Reliance Jio starting Monday The process is simple, but you need to keep a few things in mind Reliance Jio services are free to use until December 31

    The entry of Reliance Jio into India’s already crowded telecom market is expected to shake things up, and that’s an understatement. Reliance Jio tariffs and rollout plans were announced Thursday by Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani at the company’s AGM in Mumbai. He unveiled Reliance Jio’s highly-anticipated 4G service with a bouquet of offers and services.

    The biggest highlight, which grabbed everyone’s eyeballs during the launch, was Reliance Jio’s ‘free voice calls’, even on roaming. Yes, you read that right. Mukesh Ambani revealed that there will be no charges while making calls anywhere in India, and the users will only pay for mobile data.

    (Also see: Reliance Jio Postpaid Plans Detailed: What You Need to Know)

    Breaking the silence over the Reliance Jio’s tariff plans, Ambani said that the company’s simple and clean tariff plans start from a pocket-friendly one-day Internet plan costing Rs. 19, which offers you unlimited calling (both voice and VoLTE, even on roaming) along with 100MB of usable data, plus SMS (up to a cap of 100 per day as per Trai’s rule). You can learn about Reliance Jio’s tariff plans in our detailed Reliance Jio tariff plans guide.

    Until Thursday, the country saw thousands queuing up to get Jio’s free SIM with company’s ‘Jio Preview Offer’. As we mentioned, for now, the Jio SIM was only available to users of a handful of OEMs. Coming this Monday, Reliance Jio will be available to anyone and the SIM will work on all  available handsets that support VoLTE. Under the ‘Jio Welcome Offer’, all new and existing users are entitled to enjoy free calling, messaging, and data services until December 31.

    How to Delete Google Voice Search History 

    Highlights Google records all voice searches This can be disabled easily You can delete all of your voice searches

    By now, most of us know that Google knows just about everything about you, even the bits you’ve forgotten. For a company whose entire business model is tracking all of your data to serve ads, it should come as no surprise that Google tracks all of your voice searches too. Asked Google to open apps or to call someone? Google has a recording stored on its servers.

    (Also see: How to Stop Google From Tracking You on the Web)

    According to Google, this is to serve you better search results. However, Google doesn’t explicitly tell you that it’s storing your voice online. Surprisingly enough Google lets you delete all of this voice search data. It’s not visible to anyone other than you and Google. If you want to delete the data, follow these steps.

    How to Use Jio4GVoice to Make Calls on Reliance Jio and All You Need to Know 

    Highlights Jio4G Voice allows you to make VoLTE calls from any phone It can connect a 3G phone to a JioFi device to make calls You can also use it from your 4G phone directly

    It’s been a couple of weeks since the launch of Reliance Jio. The telco has attractive plans and is free to use till December 31, so naturally, a lot of people would like to start using Jio.

    The catch is that Reliance Jio runs fully on 4G so unless you have a compatible phone, you’re not going to be able to use the network. If your phone doesn’t support 4G (for data) and VoLTE (for calls), you’ll not going to be able to use Jio.

    If that’s the case, you have two options. One, you could buy a new phone – here are our top picks of phones that support Jio – or two, you can use the company’s Jio4GVoice app, available on Android. Jio4GVoice, which was initially launched as JioJoin, is a dialer for Reliance Jio that can be used to make “rich” calls from your Jio phone, or to use Jio without a 4G capable phone. This only works with a Jio connection – you either have to have a Jio SIM in your phone, or be connected to a JioFi device. Here’s how it works.

    How to download and setup Jio4GVoice app?
    The steps given outline how to use the Jio4GVoice app. In the next section, we talk about whether you need to use it at all.

    First, install the app on your phone, using the MyJio app or install directly from the Play Store. If you’re using a 3G phone, the app will ask you to connect to your JioFi Wi-Fi network. If you’re using a 4G phone, it’ll use the 4G network to connect to Jio. Once the app is connected, it’ll verify your Jio connection. Then you’ve got to tap Get started to, well, get started. Next, you’re asked to make Jio your default SMS app. You can just tap No on this message if you prefer.

    Now Jio4GVoice is set up. You can use it as your dialler to call someone or send them an SMS.

    How to make calls with Jio4GVoice app?
    Follow these steps:

    Tap on a contact. Now, just put your phone to your ear to start the call. If you’re calling another Jio user, you can also “prepare” the call. You can tap on the camera icon on the left to send an image, the location icon in the middle to send your location, or the urgent call icon on the right to mark the call as urgent, with a short message. You can tap the video icon on the bottom left to place a video call. Or you can tap the phone icon on the bottom right to place a voice call.

    So that’s how it works.

    Where Are Shuffle and Repeat Options in iPhone’s Music App? 

    Highlights The shuffle and repeat buttons are hidden in iOS 10’s Music app This won’t bother anyone using older iOS versions Once you find the button, it’s easy to toggle the option

    If you’re on iOS 10, you’ve probably been using the new Music app. The app got a revamp in iOS 10 on both the iPhone and the iPad and the design now is pretty good. You’d have noticed this particularly if you use Apple Music. Much as we love the new design, it has some flaws. The shuffle and repeat buttons are hidden and there are no cues in the UI to point to their location. If you’ve haven’t been able to find it, just follow these steps on your iPhone or iPad:

    Open the Music app. Play any song from an album or a playlist. Tap the Now Playing bar at the bottom of the screen. This has the name of the song currently playing along with a tiny thumbnail of album art. This should pull up the Now Playing window. Scroll up just a little until you see Up Next. To the right of Up Next you’ll see two buttons. The first one is shuffle and the second one is repeat. Tap the shuffle button to toggle shuffle on or off. It’s on if it has a pink background. You can tap the repeat button twice to play one song on loop.


    That’s how you toggle shuffle and repeat opt on iOS 10’s Music app. Did you have trouble finding these buttons? Do you think the Music app should add some cues to show that shuffle and repeat are hidden? Let us know via the comments. For more tutorials, head to our How To section.

    How to Copy-Paste Text and Images Between Your iPhone and Mac 

    Highlights You can copy items on iOS and paste on Mac and vice-versa This works with iOS 10 and macOS Sierra Use the same iCloud account on all devices

    Universal clipboard was one of the headline features announced at WWDC 2016. This is the ability to copy items on one Apple device and paste them on another. This works across iOS and macOS devices and is a neat feature to have if you keep switching between your Apple devices.

    (Also see: What We Love and Hate About iOS 10)

    Here’s a list of devices that are compatible with Apple’s universal clipboard feature:

    iPhone 5 or newer iPad Pro iPad (4th generation) iPad Air or newer iPad mini 2 or newer iPod touch (6th generation) or newer MacBook (Early 2015 or newer) MacBook Pro (2012 or newer) MacBook Air (2012 or newer) Mac mini (2012 or newer) iMac (2012 or newer) Mac Pro (Late 2013)


    This feature works only on iOS 10 and macOS Sierra so be sure to update your devices to these operating systems first. Once you have done that, here’s how to enable universal clipboard on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac:

    Sign in to the same iCloud account on all devices. On iOS, head to Settings > iCloud to check your iCloud account. On macOS, open System Preferences > iCloud and check it matches with what you noticed in step 2. Switch on Bluetooth on all your devices. On iOS, head to Settings > Bluetooth to do this. On macOS, open System Preferences > Bluetooth to switch on Bluetooth. Switch on Wi-Fi on all of your devices On iOS, head to Settings > Wi-Fi. On macOS, click the Wi-Fi icon on the top bar.


    Once you’ve done all of these things, universal copy-paste should start working. Just copy anything on your iOS devices and paste on your Mac. There are no toggles or switches to enable this. It should start working on its own. You can use this to copy text and images between your iPhone and Mac, though text formatting may not always be preserved, depending upon the apps you are using.

    Note that for universal clipboard to work all devices need not be on the same Wi-Fi network, but Wi-Fi and Bluetooth need to be switched on, and the devices need to be close to each other, though Apple doesn’t specify what ‘close’ means. We tested this with a MacBook Air connected to a Wi-Fi network and an iPhone on 4G, and universal copy-paste worked just fine.

    Is this a useful feature? Have you been using it? Let us know via the comments. For more tutorials, head to our How To section.
