FAQs

    It's basically just a page that contains information about you, your job, your work and whatnot. The Contact Card is basically a service under the Contacts app wherein you can set it up so that it would be easier for you to find important information whenever you need them. We suggest you set up your Contact Card properly, especially if your iPhone is secured and used for business.

    If there is an update available, download and install it. You can also just remove the app from your iPhone and then reinstall a new one from the App Store. In doing so, you can be sure that you're using the latest version of the app and that it's installation files are new.

  4. Do I need Internet to know by precise location on Google Maps?

    But always remember that no one can pinpoint where you are even if you have an Internet connection.
