Why do Mac function keys work without fn and instead of F1-F12

I noticed that on many laptops, including the MacBook, function keys (brightness level of the display, volume, etc.) can be used as standard without the fn (function) key. And the keys themselves from F1 to F12 have to be used with the fn key (it is located in the lower left corner of the keyboard).

So that the keys from F1 to F12 work as usual, and the functional only with the fn key – open “System settings” – “Keyboard“, then in the tab “Keyboard” select “Use the F1, F2 and other function keys as standard“.

Is done.

Why Contact Form 7 does not work on iOS

Recently, on the WordPress site, I noticed the problem of sending messages via Contact Form 7 from devices with the iOS operating system.
If you used Google reCAPTCHA, when you clicked on the Send button, the page was updated for a very long time and reCAPTCHA reported a wait error, if you disable reCAPTCHA, then the message was sent after 1-2 minutes.

As it turned out, iOS somehow started blocking AJAX, which was used by default when updating the page.

So to solve the problem, I opened the configuration file wp-config.php and just before the line:

define('WP_DEBUG', false);

Added a line:

define ('WPCF7_LOAD_JS', false);

This line prohibits Contact Form 7 from using Javascript.
If you specify this variable at the end of the file, it will not work.

After this, the messages on iOS started to go immediately.

Restart Apple Watch

It was necessary recently to restart the watch Apple Watch 2, which began to visually slow to work.

1) The first thing you need to try to turn them off and turn it on.
To do this, the clock should be disconnected from the charger, then you need to press and hold the side button until the “Off” slider appears, on which you want to drag your finger.
After switching off, you must press the side button again to turn the clock on.

2) There is also the possibility of forced restart, which can be done for example when the clock does not respond.
To do this, press the side button and the wheel at the same time, then hold them for about 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
Forced restart can not be done when updates are being installed or they are launched (the Apple logo is displayed).
