Iphone 6 will not charge
Apple released the details of its newest line of phones on Sept. 7, stating on the Apple website that the iPhone 7 will have the “best performance. . . ever in an iPhone,” but one change might make performing the task of listening to music difficult for some users.The iPhone 7 will not contain a 3.5 mm audio jack — the small input where consumers have plugged in EarPods and other headphones in every iPhone model since 2008. Regular headphones and auxiliary cords used to play music in cars will not be immediately compatible with the new iPhone since there is no standard audio jack.Critics and consumers alike have a lot to say about Apple’s decision to take out the familiar, circular audio jack. Students at the University of Memphis also have different opinions regarding the decision. Kaylee Wilkes, a 20-year-old health and human performance sophomore from Trenton, Tennessee, said the new update is just a big mess.“I don’t plan on upgrading; I’m … [Read more...] about Innovation or frustration: iPhone 7’s features create divide between students
Last Updated Dec 30, 2008 6:59 PM EST Kraft last week launched the food industry's first branded application for the iPhone. The iFood Assistant provides more than 7,000 recipes, creates editable shopping lists and gives directions to local grocery stores. Users can rate the different recipes and provide feedback. And, naturally, while they're waiting for the information they want, they can see picture ads for various Kraft products. Because the application could actually benefit Kraft, it's been argued that the smart thing to do would be to offer it for free. Instead, Kraft has opted to charge 99 cents for the download. As to whether people will actually use it, a Kraft spokesman was "unable to provide specific numbers" today on how many people have downloaded the application since its release last week. But a Kraft Recipe Assistant launched earlier on Facebook did not attract many users. However, that's Facebook, where branded applications have for the most part all been flops. This … [Read more...] about Kraft iPhone Application — Will There Be Any Takers?
Cathy Finley plugged her iPhone 6 into a charging cord in the living room and went to feed the goats, CTV News reported. Not even a half-hour had passed when she returned and saw smoke coming from the British Columbia, Canada, farmhouse, she told the publication. The blaze was put out within an hour, News 1130 reported, but it caused significant smoke and heat damage that led to the demolition of the structure. Finley told CBC the October 2016 fire could have been worse. “I remember thinking, I’m glad it didn’t happen last night when we were all in bed,” she said. A fire investigator said it appears that “the phone or charger generated enough heat to ignite the leather chair and notebook and start the fire,” according to News 1130. Finley told the news station that while authorities can’t say the phone caused the fire, “they can identify the phone as the origin of the fire.” Officials later clarified that the official cause … [Read more...] about An iPhone sparked a devastating fire, family says.

Q. I’m heading to Israel for two years. Any ideas about where to buy an unlocked iPhone for below list price?A. Smartphones can seem the equivalent of pocket-sized laptops, but they don’t offer the same opportunities for haggling and bargain hunting. A phone’s list price tends to be the price you pay — either upfront, on an installment plan or in the form of higher service fees on the two-year contract required to get the device at a lower upfront cost — until that model gets replaced by a newer version.That’s certainly the case with iPhones. Unlike MacBooks and iPads, you can’t expect to see them sold at a discount at Apple’s deals site. The Cupertino, Calif., company has occasionally been spotted unloading refurbished iPhones at an eBay storefront, but you can’t count on that either.Individual wireless carriers will often offer refurbished iPhones for less. But then you also owe at least a month of service, assuming a … [Read more...] about Discounted iPhone the unicorn of smartphones
NEW YORK — On the heels of last year's sleeper hit, Chinese start-up OnePlus has announced a new phone that promises iPhone-type specs at half the price.Late Monday the company unveiled the OnePlus 2, its successor to last year's OnePlus One. The OnePlus 2 has the same core idea as its predecessor —offering impressive Android smartphone specs at a low cost.Priced at $389 without a contract for the 64GB version, this year's model includes a new aluminum and magnesium frame with customizable backs, an improved 5.5-inch full HD display that the company claims will be better in direct sunlight, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with 4GB of RAM for zippy performance as well as a larger 3300mAh battery.Similar to the One, the device will support AT&T and T-Mobile's LTE networks in the U.S. and will be sold "unlocked" so users can freely switch between the networks or easily use the phone outside the U.S.. As with other unlocked phones, it will not work … [Read more...] about OnePlus 2 hopes to be a new flagship killer to rival iPhone, Galaxy
NEW YORK—Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and its larger sibling the S8+ are strong new smartphones I can highly recommend.The devices, which hit stores Friday (for around $720 on up), aren't perfect. Cool-sounding features like iris and facial recognition were extremely spotty for me. Water and dust resistance are great, but other phones now share these traits. And the vocal component of its new Bixby artificial intelligence assistant, a rival to Apple's Siri, is delayed.Instead, what sold me after using the S8+ for several days was an engineering feat that's resulted in a very simple but powerful solution for users: a wide display that stretches from one curved edge of the relatively narrow body to the other. This "bezel-lite" display gives users a lot of app real estate without the bulk, and ends up meaning more to our enjoyment of a phone than we probably realize.In this latest version of its popular Galaxy flagship phone, the first major release since … [Read more...] about Screen stealer: Why iPhone owners will envy the Galaxy S8

Move over, iPhone. You've had two years on top of the smart phone world. Now there's a touch-screen phone with better software: the Palm Pre. In a remarkable achievement, Palm Inc., a company that was something of a has-been, has come up with a phone operating system that is more powerful, elegant and user-friendly. The Pre, which goes on sale Saturday for $200 (after a mail-in rebate) at Sprint stores, makes it easier to do more things on the go. With webOS, Palm's new operating system, you can keep multiple applications open at once. They're organized like a row of cards that stretches off the screen, and you flick the screen to switch between them. For instance, if you need to quickly check your calendar while writing an e-mail, you can bring up the calendar application, then flick back to e-mail, then keep switching between them as you try to work out your schedule. On Apple Inc.'s iPhone, you can run only one application at time. To switch between calendar and e-mail, you … [Read more...] about Apple’s iPhone better watch out!

Storage space on the iPhone has always been a finite, valuable commodity, dating back to the original iPhone in 2007.Whereas many Android phones allow you to add more storage through microSD cards, Apple's phones are limited. If you are running low on space, here are some ways to free up some gigs.First, check your free space. You can do this by going to Settings, then General, then Storage & iCloud Usage. This will give you a clear readout of how much space you have, with one additional click on "Manage Storage" giving you a detailed look at which apps are taking up the most space.Photos and videos were already some of the biggest space hogs. With recent iPhones employing 8 or 12-megapixel cameras and shooting high-quality HD and 4K video, space can quickly become a premium.While you can always transfer your pictures to your computer, there are other solutions to save your photos without ever plugging in.Personally, I'm a fan of Google Photos. In addition to … [Read more...] about Running out of iPhone storage space? These tricks can help
