What Does Blue Dot Mean On My Home Screen?
You may notice that blue dots appear next to some of your apps. And you may wonder why these blue dots appear sometime and what does that mean?
See also: App Review Popups?
These blue dots may appear next to some apps (left side of the app name – under the app icon, as you can see below) on the home screen or inside folders. This shows that apps with blue dots have recently been updated. In other words, when an app is updated (automatically or manually), little blue dots will appear next to the app name indicating that your app just updated.

All apps releases updates on a regular basis. These updates may include new features or they may include bug fixes. Thus, you may want to update apps. Sometimes, an app will not work until you update. To update your iOS apps, you have two options:

You can manually update the apps. You need to do this by opening the App Store app on your iPad or iPhone and then tap Updates. You can update the apps individually or you can update apps in bulk by tapping “Update All”.
You can automatically update your apps. You can turn on or off this option. To enable automatic app updates, simply go to Settings > iTunes & App Stores > and then toggle on “Updates” (under the automatic updates section). If this option is grayed out and not available, that is because your iPhone or iPad is in Low Power Mode. You may want to charge your device and you may want to turn off Low Power Mode by going to Settings > Battery >  and turn off  “Low Power Mode”.

The blue dot will be removed after you open the app for the first time after an update. Also please note that, currently, there is no way to stop these blue dots for updated apps. Please also note that you may want to update apps over a Wi-Fi connection to avoid data charges, also note that cellular data downloads are limited to 150MB. If an update is bigger that 150MB, you will have to use a Wi-Fi connection. Lastly, if you do not want to automatically update your apps over your cellular network, you can turn this off by going to Settings > iTunes & App Stores and toggle off “Use Cellular Data”.

Lukaku in – Manchester United’s strongest possible 4-3-3 XI vs Bournemouth

By Dave Marshall
Premier League giants Manchester United travel to the Vitality Stadium on Saturday to take on high flying Bournemouth in a game that promises to be full of excitement. The Cherries have performed beyond expectations so far this season and are currently placed sixth in the league table, with Man United three points and two places below them.
With their current form, the South Coast outfit are a very tough side to beat and Eddie Howe may fancy his team’s chances of delivering an upset against a Man United side that are slowly getting back to their best after an early-season slump. We take a look at United’s predicted lineup for the lunchtime kickoff on the South Coast.
Goalkeeper
David De Gea has kept only one clean sheet in 10 league matches this season but that doesn’t take anything away from his undoubted quality. The Spaniard has not been at his brilliant best this campaign but he remains one of best stoppers in the division.
Defence
Luke Shaw has appeared resilient at the back since the start of the season and should continue barring any last minute injury. The England International has turned his United career around and is now labelled as the undisputed first choice left back under Jose Mourinho. On the opposite flank, Ashley Young continues to make a mockery of his doubters with a series of fine displays down the right. In the heart of the defence, the burgeoning and ever-improving partnership between Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof will be hoping to repel the forays of the Bournemouth attack and impress Mourinho.
Midfield
Brazilian international Fred is expected to retain his place in the middle of the park. The industrious and tenacious midfielder has only impressed in spurts since his summer arrival but he will be keen to show his quality. Alongside him should be the pair of Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba. The duo are slowly starting to get back to their fine form and they are likely to play a crucial role if United are to get a positive result on Saturday.
Attack
Anthony Martial is in the form of his life, having netted four goals in his last three matches and should get to play on the left of a three-pronged attack. Having impressed in the game against Everton, Juan Mata is expected to retain his place, while Romelu Lukaku should come in for this one after failing to start the game with his former side last time out.
The big Belgian is in the middle of his longest goal drought since joining United, and was taken out of the spotlight by Mourinho last week in the wake of heavy criticism.
Man United Predicted XI v Bournemouth
Probable lineup: De Gea, Shaw, Smalling, Lindelof, Young; Matic, Fred, Pogba; Martial, Mata, Lukaku.

I had this problem recently and it is very frustrating. PDF won’t display. I tried to open it on my Mac, iPad and iPhone. Still, I received the same message. I tried to download the PDF document on my Mac and open it with Preview, still no luck. However I was able to view the PDF document. You may experience this problem too. Did you try to open a PDF document in Safari or PDF preview in Mail? And you got this message? This short article explains what I did to resolve this problem:
Please Wait… View Your PDF Document
These type of PDF documents are called Dynamic XFA. XFA stands for XML Form Architecture. As of currently, Safari (and also Chrome and Firefox) do not support these type PDF forms thus Dynamic XFA based PDF documents cannot be opened in browsers.
You can view these type of PDFs by downloading and installing Adobe Reader on your Mac. However, you cannot view these type of PDFs, as of now, on your iOS device, the iOS Adobe Reader app currently does not support this.
macOS

Go to this URL: https://get.adobe.com/reader/
Click Download Now. And then follow the installation instructions.
After you complete the installation process, now go to the PDF document and save it on your computer.
And now open it with “Adobe Acrobat Reader DC”.

iOS (iPhone or iPad)
As stated above, currently you cannot open these type of PDFs on your iPhone. You need to open it on your computer.

Do you get this iOS Calendar error popup constantly? The error message says: “Calendar Invitation. Your response to the invitation cannot be sent” (see the image below). You tap OK but a few minutes later this pops up again? It is highly likely that you are getting this error because you responded (accept or reject) to a calendar invitation, and your response, for some reasons, could not be sent and thus you keep getting this notification.

iPad Freezes or Stops Responding, Fix

macReports
iPad Freezes or Stops Responding, Fix
You may experience that your iPad has become unresponsive. When your iPad freezes, it will not respond to any input (e.g., screen tapping, pressing buttons etc). This short article provides recommendations to help resolve this problem.
Some of the symptoms include:

iOS stops responding
Nothing moves on the iPad’s screen
Buttons do not work

See also: Dead iPhone?
iPad Freezes
If your iPad freezes while you are using it, you can force restart your iPad. Do not worry, this action does not delete anything. Here is how:

Press and hold the Home button and the side buttons (sleep/wake button) together and keep pressing them until you see the Apple logo. Then you may release the buttons (see the image below). Your iPad will start.

If your iPad keeps freezing while you are using, you may want to find out what causing it. So the big question is why your iPad freezes and how you can address this problem. Here is how:
Check for faulty app
Certain apps can be one of the factors that can trigger this iPad freezing issue. I used to have a game on my iPad that was causing this whenever I use this app. If you notice a single app giving you this type of problems, you may want to do a few things. One of them is to check if there is an update for this particular app. This update may fix your problem. To figure this out, tap App Store on your iPad, and then tap Updates. After updating, if you are still having this problem, now, you may want to remove the particular app. To remove it, press and hold the Home button and then press the (x) icon located in the top right-hand corner of the app.
Too many apps open
It may be that too many apps are running in the background. This may slow down your iPad’s memory and processing power and causing your iPad to stop functioning. Quit (shut down) apps. Here is how:

Double press Home button
This action will bring up the fast app switcher
Then swipe up on the app cars. Note that this does not remove any app data. Note you can swipe from left-to-right or right-to-left to navigate.

Update your iPad
Some bugs may cause your iPad to freeze up. And Apple releases updates often to fix these bugs. So make sure that your iPad is running the latest version of the iOS software. You can update your iPad easily by going to Settings > General > Software Update.
See also: iPhone black screen?
Turn off some features
Some of the iOS features may be slowing down your iPad. Especially Background App Refresh and Automatic Downloads. Try disabling these features to see if this fixes your problem. Here is how:

On your iPad, go to Settings > General > Background App Refresh and toggle this off.
On your iPad, go to Settings > iTunes & App Store > and toggle off Automatic Downloads.

Charge your iPad
When your iPad is low on battery, iOS will try to increase performance by minimizing some system operations. This may cause your iPad to freeze. Simply charge your iPad. First connect your iPad to the USB cable, and then plug into a power outlet.
Not enough space?

How much free data storage space is left on your iPad? When your iPad is low on free space, your iPad may not function properly. Go to Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage to check your usage. Find the apps that take up the most space. You may want to remove them. You may also want to delete the apps you do not need or want. You may also want to transfer your photos or videos to you computer to free up space.
