If you own an iPhone 6s and you have experienced your phone suddenly shutting down for no reason, you’ll be realized to hear that Apple has since launched a repair program targeting iPhone 6s owners who are experiencing similar problems. This seems to affect units produced between September to October 2015, so if you got your phone around then, you’ll be covered.
While China isn’t too pleased with Samsung over the way they handled the Note 7 recall, it now seems that their ire has turned to Apple. This is because for some inexplicable reason, the iPhone 6 and 6s handsets in the country are shutting off at random. This seems to be happening regardless of battery life, with some shutting off even when there is 50% remaining.
Are the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus handsets more expensive that you’d like, but you still want an iPhone anyway? There is some good news, and that good news is that Apple is now selling refurbished units of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the models from 2016 which means that as far as technology is concerned, they do come across as outdated.
Last week the folks at PhoneBuff compared the iPhone 7 against the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in a speed test, with the iPhone 7 clearly blowing the Note 7 away, which we can only assume is largely thanks to its new A10 Fusion quad-core processor. However the question is, how does it fare against its predecessor, the iPhone 6s?
From what we can gather based on pre-orders and how excited carriers appear to be, it would seem that fears about the iPhone 7 doing badly are unfounded. However that excitement seemed to have gone away pretty quickly because recent reports by analysts have suggested that YoY sales on launch weekend are down by 25%.
As it stands, the iPhone 6s is Apple’s current flagship offering. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would be Samsung’s flagship, and in terms of releases, there’s a little less than a year between them, with the Note 7 obviously being the newer model. So with that being said, who will win in a speed test between both phones?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s display has come under a bit of fire recently. It is said to sport Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 which is supposed to be more durable compared to previous Gorilla Glass displays, but unfortunately it seems that in a recent scratch test video, the glass did not hold up as well as we thought.
Several reports suggest that the United States Army’s Special Operations Command has decided to shift from Android to iPhone. Apparently, this decision has been made due to problems soldiers were facing with the Android devices. Each soldier of the SOC is issued an Android Tactical Assault kit which is believed to contain a variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note.
Facebook first updated its main application with support for the 3D Touch feature of the iPhone 6S. It had said back then that it would take some time for similar functionality to arrive for Facebook Messenger, which is now an important service in its own right and not just a standalone app for keeping in touch with your friends and family. Two months before Apple is scheduled to launch the […]
Not so long ago, Apple has experienced its first iPhone decline of sales and had to slow down production. That was attributed (rightly) to a change in market dynamics because the phone market has matured. However, new market data from Kantar Worldpanel points out that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are outselling the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S+ in the key United States market – that is, over the […]
What do we know about the iPhone 7 so far? According to the rumors, it is expected to do away with the antenna bands running across the back of the device, although the ones around the top and bottom edges are to remain. It is also expected to come with a dual camera setup, at least for the iPhone 7 Plus, and it has also been rumored to come in […]
The OnePlus 3 is an affordable phone, more so given its specs which save for its display resolution, can be found in the flagship phones of other companies like Samsung and LG, just to name a few. Now it looks like OnePlus has one more area that they can boast about, which is that it has a fingerprint scanner that is faster than the iPhone 6s.
Wireless charging has been around for a few years now. Most high-end smartphones do support this charging technology but Apple has never adopted it for the iPhone. Not one iPhone since the first arrived in 2007 has had support for wireless charging, but that sort of changes today, with new wireless charging battery cases for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus from Mophie.
If you’re looking to get a new iPhone and maybe another for your friend, partner, or family member, you might be interested to learn that Sprint has recently launched a buy-one-get-one offer for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. As the name suggests, this means that if you buy one iPhone, you’ll get the other for “free”.
