The umbrella rock was found by an unknown hunter and up to date has been a sight to behold. The rock itself is held by little rocks and provides good shade whilst viewing the mountain.

The mysterious rock is located precisely in the Yilo Krobo District, close to the Koforidua Township. The rock is found at the same location as the Boti Falls, hence tourists who visit Boti Falls usually take advantage to get closer to the rock and experience the mysteries of nature.

What makes the rock so famous?

The Umbrella Rock isn’t like the normal rocks we see every day on mountains and in valleys. The shape of the rock is a thing of beauty, with one large surface rock sitting comfortably on a very thing and small rock, forming an umbrella-like shape.

About fifteen to twenty people can comfortably take shelter under the mysterious rock and will be protected from rainfall or sunshine.

Presumed to be centuries old, the Umbrella Rock continues to amaze tourists who find it mind-boggling to understand how a very large surface rock in the shape of an umbrella could sit on a tiny small rock for ages, without falling, or the smaller rock wearing off to give way for a fall.

According to Natives of Yilo Krobo, the rock was discovered by a hunter who had gone hunting in the bush so many decades ago. The hunter later returned to the town to take his people to the strange looking rock. And since then, the Umbrella Rock has become a major tourist attraction in the Eastern Region.

What is new in iOS 15?

Published

, What is new in iOS 15?, Frederick Nuetei

Apple in June 2021 introduced the latest version of its iOS operating system, iOS 15, which was released on September 20. iOS 15 introduces new features for FaceTime calls, tools to reduce distractions, a new notifications experience, added privacy features, complete redesigns for Safari, Weather, and Maps, and more.

Notifications have been redesigned in iOS 15, adding contact photos for people and larger icons for apps. To reduce distraction, a notification summary collects notifications together for delivery at an appropriate time and arranges notifications by priority.

This year’s update is also a bit different because you don’t have to update to iOS 15. If you’re fine with iOS 14, Apple won’t force you to make the jump to iOS 15. You’ll still receive security patches. Some people will simply dismiss iOS 15 altogether.

It seems like a small change but it actually says a lot about the current state of iOS. Apple considers iOS as a mature platform. Just like you don’t have to update your Mac to the latest version of macOS if you don’t want to, you can now update at your own pace.

iOS should also be considered as a mature platform for app developers. iOS 15 adoption will be slower than usual as people won’t necessarily update to iOS 15 right away. Apps should potentially work on older iOS versions for longer.

Of course, users will ‘update’ to a new version of iOS when they buy a new iPhone and replace their old iPhone.

Focusing on you instead of your phone

One of the biggest change in iOS 15 is the ability to change your Focus from Control Center. It’s a surprisingly powerful feature with a lot of options and tweaks. I would say it doesn’t feel like an Apple feature.

But it’s definitely one of the most interesting features of iOS 15. Chances are you spend a lot of time with your phone and your device requires a lot of attention from you. With this new feature, it reverses the balance and puts you back in charge.

‘Do Not Disturb’ users are already quite familiar with the idea that you can silence notifications when you don’t want them. If you want to keep using ‘moon mode’ with iOS 15, you don’t have to change anything.

But you can now create additional Focuses. By default, Apple suggests a few Focuses — Work, Sleep, Driving, Fitness, Gaming, Mindfulness, Personal and Reading. Each Focus is customizable to your needs and you can create new Focuses from scratch.

When you turn on a specific Focus, it basically blocks notifications by default. You can then add people and apps so that notifications from those people and apps still go through. App developers can also mark a notification as time sensitive so that it always goes through. I hope they won’t abuse that feature.

There are three more settings that you can activate. First, you can optionally share that your notifications are currently silenced in Messages and compatible third-party apps. Second, you can hide home screen pages altogether. Third, you can hide notifications from the lock screen and hide badges from the home screen.

Focus gets particularly interesting when you realize that you can couple specific Focuses with automation features. For instance, you can automatically turn on ‘Sleep’ at night or you can automatically turn on ‘Work’ when you arrive at work.

Power users will also have a lot of fun setting up a Focus and pairing it with a Shortcut. For instance, you could use Shortcuts to open the Clock app when you turn on Sleep mode. You get it, this new feature has a lot of depth and beta users have just started scratching the surface.

How to set your iPhone Do Not Disturb settings

Published

, How to set your iPhone Do Not Disturb settings, Frederick Nuetei

Do Not Disturb is a helpful iPhone setting for periods when you do not want to be interrupted, such as meetings, formal events or at night. This setting only has an effect if your iPhone is locked.

You can schedule Do Not Disturb to repeat at the same time each day, and to set exceptions for certain types of calls to ring through. Understanding Do Not Disturb can help you prevent your iPhone from making unwanted disruptions in your day-to-day life. Thankfully, it’s easy to enjoy the positive parts of Do Not Disturb while still ensuring those important calls come through.

Set up Do Not Disturb

There are two ways to set up Do Not Disturb on your iPhone: turning it on and off one time, or having it turn on and off on a schedule. To turn it on just once, you can swipe up on your iPhone and press the moon button. When you’re ready to turn it off, just click the moon button again.

To have Do Not Disturb stick to a schedule, you’ll need to go to your settings and scroll down to Do Not Disturb. Here, you’ll have an option to schedule it to turn on and off at whatever time you’d like.

Make your exceptions

You might want to make exceptions to Do Not Disturb, like I do for my roommate and my immediate family members. To do that, you’ll want to first decide who should and should not make the list. Is it really important for all of your friends to be able to contact you while your Do Not Disturb is on? That’s your call!

Open the contact card

The first step you’ll have to take is to open up the contact card of the people you want to be able to contact you even when your Do Not Disturb is on.

Edit

Click “Edit” on the contact you choose. This will allow you to change anything about the contact, including their name, number, notes, and, yes, even bypassing a Do Not Disturb order.

Emergency bypass

Next, you’ll scroll down and click “ringtone.” You’ll see an option at the very top labeled “Emergency Bypass,” which allows sounds and vibrations from that contact even when Do Not Disturb is on. It’s important to note here, that it bypasses everything. That means if you don’t have Do Not Disturb on but your ring switch is set to silent, sounds and vibrations will still come through from this person. Once you’re all set, you’ll click “Done.” Voila! Now, you won’t be disturbed — except by the people you want to be disturbed by.
