iPhone Tips by Jake Jacobs

Do not disturb while driving

When the phone detects that you’re driving — because it’s connected to your car’s Bluetooth, or because the phone detects motion — it prevents any notifications (alert messages from your apps) from showing up to distract you.  If someone texts you, they receive an auto-response like, “I’m driving.  I’ll see your message when I get where I’m going.” (You can designate certain people as VIPs; if they text the word “urgent” to you, their messages break through the blockade.)

Go to Settings → DO NOT DISTURB WHILE DRIVING → Activate → [choose from Automatically, When Connected to Car Bluetooth, or Manually]

To select who receives an automatic replay and create the canned message that is sent, Go to Settings → DO NOT DISTURB WHILE DRIVING → Auto-Reply To and Auto Reply

You can add a manual Do Not Disturb While Driving icon on your Control Center.  Go to Settings → Control Center → Customize Controls.  Move the Do Not Disturb While Driving control to the INCLUDE list by tapping the green circle +

Smith’s Picks by Joel Smith

Furai Chicken (4800 Irvine Blvd, inside Zion Market in the Northwood Town Shopping Center)

This is an eatery you definitely would not know about if you didn’t stumble across it.

Located inside Zion Market in Northwood, Furai Chicken has a small space, offering several varieties of fried chicken.  They also serve unique dipping sauces.  My favorite is the lemon garlic sauce.

Furai Chicken is open 11am until 8pm Sunday through Thursday and 11am until 9pm on Friday & Saturday.
