Fix iPhone iOS Mail Broken Push/Fetch Not Updating in Background

In the last few years, certainly spanning iOS 8 and iOS 9, you may of experienced a bug with the Mail app on iPhone not updating in the background. Here’s one solution that may fix it.

The way Apple Mail on iOS should work is simple – unlike other iPhone apps there is no ‘background app refresh’ option, you choose between ‘Push’, ‘Fetch’ and ‘Manual’. ‘Push’ is the most common with email accounts these days, forming a constant connection with your email provider to allow it to send emails straight to your phone.

Since Google’s acquisition of Nest, the home technology company has somewhat stalled, both in terms of releasing new products and developing existing ones. Now, despite a joint venture with home security experts Yale being announced nearly 12 months ago, their first product together, the Linus Lock, has been postponed until 2017.

While this certainly isn’t the first tech product to experience a delay, given the current situation at Nest it is slightly worrying. And despite Nest’s initial fanfare about the partnership, only a solitary Facebook post from Yale’s Real Living page, and a graphic update on the official Linus Lock minisite have acknowledged the change.


Glastonbury 2016: Review

After much criticism of the line-up in the media, and hundreds of complaints about the conditions and endless queues just to get on site, could Glastonbury live up to its status of Britain’s best festival, or is the magic starting to wear off?

There’s a certain degree of poignancy going into this year’s Glastonbury, not least with the death of two musical icons associated with the festival. It’s no surprise to see Bowie’s ‘Aladdin Sane’ lightning flash adorning the Pyramid Stage, while Prince’s legacy – forever rumoured to be playing, but seemingly the one that got away – felt everywhere.
