iPad photo and videos missing fix


I use an iPad Pro and recently used airdrop to send 40 videos to my iPad from my iPhone.

Once the airdrop was complete I checked the photos app and there were no videos in it

I checked the storage usage in the settings and it showed there were videos in the photos app.

So I tried all kinds of tips mentioned online.

The one that worked for me was to reset all the settings in the settings app. Not content reset

The iPad restarted and I had to give the wifi and iCloud passwords and after restarting the photo app correctly showed all the videos. 

I think it’s some kind bug in photos app, when you send a lot of photos or videos through a computer or airdrop, hopefully they will fix it soon. 

Airtel 4G sim swap fixed


You can switch from 3G to 4G sim on Airtel
You need to get a special 4G sim then

Send SMS to

121 SIM (you new sim number here)

which is a 20 digit number

If it’s successful you will get a SMS like this

Dear Customer, we have received your request for SIM change on airtel mobile. Please do not proceed if you DON’T HAVE A NEW AIRTEL SIM with you. For your account security and to avoid any banking or financial fraud, SMS services will not work on your mobile for next 24 hrs. To confirm for SIM change, reply with 1.

Now reply with 1

You will get a SMS like this now just put the new sim in and wait for it to get activated

Thank you! New SIM will be activated shortly for your Airtel Mobile. Your old SIM will work till the new SIM gets activated. For security reasons, SMS service will remain blocked for next 24hrs.

Sometimes you might get an error like this

Wrong HLR GOLD SIM, Please try again with Correct HLR sim number.

This is because you either did an MNP mobile number portability to Airtel or in my case changed automatically to Airtel because Aircel stopped service in my area.

In this case to switch to Airtel 4G you need another sim. Check on the sim pack see it says H 1 or H 2 sim.

If it’s H 1 get the H 2 sim and follow the above mentioned procedure and it should work

Now enjoy Airtel 4G speeds and new sim on the same number
