The rumor mills have been taking an objective iPhone 7, the so-called successor flagship for the recently released iPhone 6. While the idea of a new issue of iPhone sounds exciting, it seems speculations have overlooked the possibility of an iPhone 6S. Of course Apple has established its first phablet as iPhone 6 Plus, but what about an iPhone -s? Is Cupertino giant abandoned the idea once and for all?

We can never really tell unless Apple confirms it. Still, there is a possibility that can adopt iPhone 6S based 5S improved by a parallel perspective 5. Since specifications, 6S not necessarily be larger changes - let the uniqueness Plus and 6 could actually 6S become a device no one has ever seen before.

iOS 8 How to: Monitor and track your battery usage

 Have you ever wondered how much your battery is being used? Or have you ever wondered why sometimes when you use certain applications dramatically drains the battery? New in iOS 8 Configuration application is the ability to track usage of the battery for each application you have installed on your device. This method is very similar to track your cellular data usage. 

In iOS 7, which shows how much the battery has been used and how long the battery was on alert since last full charge, but does not define or describe how it was made. To monitor and track your battery usage on iOS 8, ​​first go to Settings.

With iOS 8 by default, the battery percentage off. I recommend turning it on, and they immediately give you a better idea of what your battery life is so contrary to the image of the battery.

Touching on battery usage, is displayed the first time since last full charge. This information was available in iOS 7 Shows you use, how long has actually been committed to using the device and the screen will display pending the time the device has been idle and has not been used.

f moves down further, there are suggestions to increase battery usage. One suggestion would be to reduce the brightness of the disply. Personally, I have my devices set to maximum brightness. I want to be able to fully enjoy the high definition Retina screen on my iPhone 6 and not force my eyes. As for the screen, another suggestion would be to allow automatic brightness automatically adjusts the screen brightness according to your environment. Another suggestion might show is to turn Wi-Fi. Using Wi-Fi to access the data, it uses less battery power a cellular network connection.

Also, you will see a list of applications and see how much the application uses the battery. This information can help you determine if you are constantly using certain applications or could be due to background activity. You can see the battery usage in the last 24 hours, or in the last 7 days.

There are several reasons application use a lot of battery: 


  1. The application is constantly being used by you. In my example above, is precisely the case of Tweetbot. 
  2. The application is being used in the background. It could be the content download, upload content, use location services or streaming audio. In my example, the mail application is downloading new emails in the background. 
  3. The application is being used in an area with poor cell service. When this happens, it gets more work and drains the battery quickly. If this happens, the phone application appears in the list and a list of low signal appears. 
  4. The application does not work properly. For example, the application may be constantly crashing. Or just the application that is used, but however, is in the top of the list. 
  5. The application is using AirPlay. The application is audio streaming to AirPlay speakers or video to an Apple TV. 

By using this tool, a usage percentage is a percentage of the battery being used. For example, if your iPhone has 80% battery but lists that music has been used for 50%, that means that the music uses 10% of battery power. This tool must be used occasionally. I recommend checking that when you think that there are problems with the battery, which is faster than normal drainage, which then gives you an idea on how to solve any of the applications that are draining the battery.

How to ditch Android and join the side of Apple



How to ditch Android and join the side of Apple


Now that Apple has a bigger, better iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, we suspect lots of big screen Android Fans can defect to iOS. (Apparently Apple thinks so too). But while the mobile exchange is a type of headache, change the phone and change the operating systems level can induce pain of migraine if you is not prepared properly.  

But you will be prepared. Since you can not miss your calendar events to your favorite applications, here is how to make the most important in the transition from Android to iOS in top condition mobile needs.
Mail, Calendar and Contacts

If you keep your life in sync with the cloud-based Google ecosystem transfer Android to iOS is relatively easy.

Click where it says "Gmail" on the top left to go to Contacts, click the More tab and select Import. Now, when you add your Google account to iPhone, contacts will come along, too.
Keyboards

From iOS 8 is now compatible with third-party keyboards, most likely you can still use an almost identical version of its keyboard are extremely high. You are lucky!

Adding a third party to the keyboard of your system is quite simple. Download the keyboard app from the App Store and then go to Settings> General> Keyboards> Add New Keyboard. Navigate to the section for third-party keyboards, and see all the applications you have downloaded keyboard. Select the one you want, give you permission to be used throughout the system, and you're ready to go.

Popular keyboards like SwiftKey, Swype, Fleksy and TouchPal now all must be available for iOS in August.
applications

While you will not have the same type of home screen widgets and an Android phone, 8 Does iOS widgets in your opinion today in the notification center. It is accessed with a swipe down from the top of the screen, as the name suggests, this is where you will also find a list of the latest notifications and executables you received.

As for the widgets, the latest version of the Yahoo Weather application includes serving as a miniature version of the full blown application with a Flickr photo-specific location annotated with current and future conditions of temperature. Calendar Calendars Readdle applications and also offer 5 notification center widgets for better glanceable version of the daily programming schedule Apple offers.

Your App Collection

Unfortunately, there is no way one or two steps to get all your favorite Android on your iOS device. You will need to go through and manually reset your home screen with applications you use on the regular.

Make a list of your actual favorites, they use every day, and those who can not imagine life without him. Ditch the rest. Congratulations, your collection of apps just got a thorough cleaning of autumn.

With the exception of a handful of titles (mostly games), almost all of your favorite Android should also be on iOS. If you already shelled out big bucks for an Android version of an application, it might be worth leaving your customer service a line-you might be able to offer a discount code for their continued patronage, rather than risk choosing a application to compete cheaper. If the application is only $ 1, however, do not be stingy, show some love dev.
Photos, music, PDFs and Other Media

One of the things I like to get me a new phone is the opportunity to begin again. But some people like to keep your favorite photos, videos and music on your device, always. No problem. If that's you, you'll want to download first to your computer (connect the Android device and then sync with Outlook or Exchange) and transfer them to your iPhone via iTunes. To do this, connect your iPhone via USB or via WiFi and launch iTunes, click "Sync with phone", then select the media you want on your new phone (you can choose between books movies and TV shows, notes, photos, audio content, and more).

If you are transferring PDF and ePub documents, you can still access them using iBooks iOS to read (or other PDF reader). If you have Office documents, Apple Pages, Numbers and Keynote will allow you to read and edit them on your iPhone, or you can use Microsoft Office for iOS.
