PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5498; Member since: 05 Aug 2011) Don't pay attention at wendygarett, he intentionally changes opinions just for trolling purposes. In one comment he may say that he loves an company or product and hates another company or product and suddenly after few minutes he may say totally oposite things. It is the way how he trolls or maybe just his mental problems. posted on 04 Jun 2013, 19:37 1 24.

Apple iphone battery drain
Have you been noticing that the battery on your Apple iPhone or Apple iPad doesn't last as long as it used to? Do you see an unusual drain on the batteries? German iOS developer Sebastian Düvel noticed and wanted to get to the bottom of things, so he tested iOS code and determined that it is Facebook's apps that are the problem.According to Düvel, the problem is that Facebook's apps aren't turning off when in the background and not being used. The main Facebook app and the Facebook Messenger app apparently go into a cycle where they become active for 10 seconds, go to sleep, become active for 10 seconds, go to sleep and continue the cycle throughout the day. When they are not being used, iOS apps are designed to go to the background and go to sleep until they are called on again by the user. By activating while in the background, the Facebook apps are wearing down the battery.Apple's rules allow audio apps and voice over IP apps to run in the background and Facebook's apps … [Read more...] about Are Facebook’s apps to blame for Apple iPhone battery drain?

Finalflash (Posts: 3716; Member since: 23 Jul 2013) No they won't, it will likely come out at the end of september like the first iPhone (after it was announced at wwdc by jobs). It will be poised as a throw back to the good old days. Also, they will probably only show off the looks and that is about it, won't mention the internals (reasoning for that would be because everyone already knows what it looks like through leaks, so utilize the drama). 73.

An iPhone battery usually lasts throughout a full workday, but rarely much more than a day, which means that you still need to do the ritual of nightly recharging. Also, just like on most Apple devices, the battery inside iPhones is a Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) one, meaning that it degrades after time.With recent iPhone performance slow-down reports linking CPU performance to battery health, you might want to know one crucial detail about the battery: how used is it exactly?Battery age is measured in battery cycles, where one cycle is equal to the process of draining and completely filling up the battery once. This can mean that you use up your battery from 100% until the phone is at 0%, or completely dead, or you can drain 55% of that battery one day and 45% the next day, and together, the two days combine for one, complete 100% battery cycle.Now that we know how you get 1 battery cycle count, we need to know how many cycles can an iPhone battery go through before its capacity deteriorates … [Read more...] about How to check how many battery cycles is your Apple iPhone battery on
The folks from Cupertino pulled a typical Apple yesterday, when they outed the bi-annual iPhone 5s upgrade that keeps the same chassis as its predecessor, but adds a carefully crafted new feature or two to make the handset stand out for the next few quarters.This year the big thunder comes in the form of a 64-bit A7 chipset, which seems to be ahead of its app development times, but is a first for a smartphone nonetheless. Same goes for the fingerprint sensor embedded right into a brand new sapphire home button, which, however, won't be doing anything more useful than unlocking the phone and authorizing iTunes payments, as Apple won't store your fingerprint readings on its servers, and 3rd party developers won't be allowed to use it as authentication method - there goes that vast mobile payment network we were jonessing about.Apple threw in a few other notable upgrades, mainly in the camera and connectivity departments, so check out the full laundry list of new features that are … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone 5S: all new features review
posted on 06 Nov 2015, 09:35 2 1. darkkjedii (Posts: 27050; Member since: 05 Feb 2011) My question with the iPhone 7 plus is, will it be a full blown tablet, and not just a scaled-up smartphone. Split window picture and picture, and slide over, a dedicated stylus such as the apple pencil, & a full software suite to take advantage of it. The seven + needs to be more like to note 5, let's get it together Apple. posted on 06 Nov 2015, 09:42 3 2. Derekjeter (Posts: 1337; Member since: 27 Oct 2011) I only agree with split screen, a different software of iOS for the larger iPhone like the note 5, but the stylus is a no. I have never ever seen anyone pull out the their stylus on any Note phone. I myself didn't use it at all once when I had the Note 4. The 7plus should have more multitask options than the smaller iPhone. posted on 06 Nov 2015, 11:42 1 16. darkkjedii (Posts: 27050; Member since: 05 Feb 2011) I always use mine. 20. tedkord (Posts: 15817; Member … [Read more...] about 7 rumored features of the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

This is part of CNET's "Tech Enabled" series about the role technology plays in helping the disability community. David Grissam was worried he'd have to quit his job. Grissam had steadily been losing his hearing, which was a serious problem for the 911 dispatcher based in Norman, Oklahoma. It had gotten to the point where normal hearing aids didn't work anymore. But then Grissam -- who has been legally deaf since the age of six -- got the Cochlear Baha 5 Sound Processor, a hearing device that's implanted in his skull. Connecting the Baha to his iPhone via Bluetooth lets the 44-year-old stream emergency calls directly to his ears, cutting out background noise and giving him crystal-clear sound. "With me missing the audio coming in, I was really concerned I was going to miss one of my friends screaming for help because he was shot," Grissam said. But now, "I'm able to hear more than others in the room because of that direct link." The Baha is one of a crop of hearing devices … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone tech helps reinvent the hearing aid
Turn off vibrationsDo you really need your iPhone to vibrate? It will eat up some battery life and it’s probably only necessary when you have your iPhone on silent. Go to Settings > Sound and you can toggle Vibrate on Ring to off.Reduce Auto-Lock timeWhen you stop using it, your iPhone takes a set amount of time to turn the screen off. You can change it in Settings > General > Auto-Lock. Set it as low as you can without it becoming annoying, and you’ll save a decent amount of battery life over time.Turn off AirDropYou don’t need AirDrop turned on all the time either, so swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring up the Control Center and turn it off until you actually need it.Stop Location ServicesIt’s debatable how helpful it is to have your iPhone tracking your location. What we can say for sure is that it drains the battery faster. Head into Settings > Privacy > Location Services and turn off any app you don’t feel needs to be … [Read more...] about Tips to make your iPhone battery last longer (and a common myth busted)
Apple has said a manufacturing issue affecting “a very limited number” of its new flagship iPhone 5S handsets means some users will be experiencing longer-than-usual charge times or reduced battery life. The phone is supposed to offer 10 hours of talk time on 3G and up to 250 hours in standby mode.The Cupertino company told the NY Times Tuesday that affected users would receive a new handset.“We recently discovered a manufacturing issue affecting a very limited number of iPhone 5S devices that could cause the battery to take longer to charge or result in reduced battery life,” Apple spokeswoman Teresa Brewer said. “We are reaching out to customers with affected phones and will provide them with a replacement phone.”Few detailsBrewer declined to offer any details regarding the nature of the manufacturing flaw, nor say how many handsets the company believes are affected.
