Last year, there were some rumors say that the iPhone 6 will be released in April or May 2014, which did not happen, so we are confident that Apple will not release any iPhone in April / May 2015. for now, there is every chance that the iPhone 7 is released in September 2015.

iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 Design

Both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus comes with a major change in design of its predecessor, the iPhone 5S, so we're pretty sure that Apple will work on the design of this upcoming device.

Rumor has it that the next iPhone 7 will have a display which runs on the sides, which can be used in some features like: slide to unlock, messaging reading, system controls, control music player and much more.

We believe this will be a great feature to the next device is added, but otherwise they should consider is the screen resolution.

iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 Camera

One of the most important improvements that Apple could bring to the next iPhone 7 would the camera. There are rumors that the iPhone 6 successor will feature a 21MP camera with double lens, allowing you to use the optical zoom capabilities and make great features in low-light.

Are Smartphones Making Wearable Fitness-Trackers Extinct?

Are Smartphones Making Wearable Fitness-Trackers Extinct?

Fitness Trackers, such as the Fitbit or jaw, are the most popular for those health conscious accessories, but its days may be numbered.


 Many next-generation smartphones are shipping with the ability to follow steps, calories, heart rate and more, which industry experts say could make the followers of fitness obsolete.

New phones from Samsung, as the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 come with S Health, an application Fitness- and health monitoring that has all the capabilities of a crawler based on the wrist.


LG has a similar application, LG Health, on your phone G3, and smartphone maker HTC has partnered with Fitbit in its latest flagship phone, the M8, which provides users with fitness-tracking functions like.

The tracker fitness business is booming and is now a $ 330 million industry. With the features of these devices become accessible to everyone with a smartphone, that number will continue to grow, says Pankaj Kedia, senior director of product management for Qualcomm, manufacturer of processors, sensors and other cellular components. "Fifteen percent of American consumers currently use a portable device like a watchband or smart adequacy" he says. "As mobile devices continue to add new features and services, [the industry] will continue to attract consumers."

But as more and more smart phones have these characteristics, experts predict that wearable could go the way of the dodo, since most consumers prefer to eliminate redundancies and do all their business in one device. Especially a device they already own.

Phones now trace the steps and calories with the same precision of followers watches, making them attractive to people who are simply trying to quantify how much they move during the day - the vast majority of users, says Ritu Agarwal, who heads the information systems from the University of Maryland. But for athletes and serious runners, there is no replacement for followers of traditional bracelet - yet.

"Some professional riders want to measure your heart rate while running" it, which can only be achieved with the use of accessories heart rate belt that often come with these followers says; sensors for smartphones, meanwhile, need quiet to get an accurate reading. Still, says Agarwal, "these are the temporary restrictions Smartphone manufacturers are addressing proactively."

The largest manufacturers of smartphones problem must be resolved before dethroning wearable is the battery life, Kedia said. A Fitbit can go for a week without pay. A UP jaw can last up to 14 days. However, even the smartest smartphones need to be charged every two days. "The capabilities fitness tracking smartphones require fast and reliable connectivity to synchronize and enable functions such as navigation to monitor execution and provide real-time updates on their progress to social networks," he says. "It's a challenge to do that, keeping your battery alive."

As the battery life improves, Agarwal anticipates that these phone features will become more popular and drip models cheaper phones. However, instead of stripping wearable their physical status tracker choice of title, Agarwal expects smart phones and wearable learn to work together to produce the next best products. "Right now the common opinion is that they are separate devices," she says, "but there is no reason to make them that way."

Kedia agrees, adding that they carry an important attribute that smartphones just can not compete with - their small size. "People will use a combination of smart phones and portable devices for optimum experience," he says. "Wearable Fitness Trackers are often an extension of the smartphone, but allow you to enjoy step tracking and other important functions without having to hold the phone out every time."

While it may be cumbersome having to hold the phone endlessly with a device perched on his wrist lets you view the statistics you want just a touch. "The wearable devices offer instant and continuous, hands-free access to the most relevant personalized information" Kedia said, "that empowers us with more efficient and effective management of our daily life in a way forms [that] we can not mimic a smartphone because portability ".

But perhaps the greatest reward this struggle between mobile and wearable deliver is new and improved technologies, says Agarwal. Devices Watch, for example, are equipped with additional sensors that monitor heart rate and other statistics that mobile no, says while some of the newer devices are now combining the best of both worlds. "Portable Trackers today usually need a phone to connect to the cloud, or a safety device on a PC," she says. "But the new products are released by Samsung, Microsoft and Apple are blurring the distinction between a tracking device and a smartphone. Now we just have to see who the winners in this competitive market will be".

How to choose a new cell phone

How to choose a new cell phone

Now is a good time to get a smartphone. The latest devices hitting shelves in time for the holiday shopping season, and there is likely to be a lull in new versions until next spring. So why wait?


Here are some things to consider before you hit the stores. If you are upgrading from an older model, you can skip the first part for smartphone buyers first.

Need a smartphone?


Maybe you've been doing fine with just a basic cell phone, but many people who buy smartphones discover things they never thought they could do. You can install applications from a museum for a map or learn about current exhibitions, or you can catch up on e-books with a scanning application. You can also check email and Facebook more easily and take great pictures and share them quickly.

But you have to pay more - not just for the device. The monthly fees for voice, text and data tend to be higher compared to basic telephony plans.

What system should you choose?


This is the most important decision that will influence its future smartphones. It is not easy to change once you have all your apps, contacts and bookmarks in a single system.

Apple iOS, you can choose from a variety of iPhone models - ranging from the giant iPhone 6 Plus for older and smaller iPhone 5s and 5c. The iPhone 6 is a good choice in the middle and comes with all the bells and whistles, including a chip to make payments at Apple stores that accept payment. Phones running Google's Android operating system include further options from various manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, Motorola, ZTE and Sony.

Android is more flexible in the sense that phone makers can be customized to your taste, and application developers have more say in what they write for Android phones. That flexibility has led to a free-for-all environment, however. Settings and features vary so much from one phone to another it is difficult to ask a friend or search online for help. And some Android apps do not work with all phones.

Android gets too fragmented because many application developers work with iOS first. Apple is the only company that makes the iOS phones, and must approve what goes into its app store. This helps ensure the quality, but it means to trust Apple to make those decisions for you. One advantage of iOS is that iPhones work well with other Apple devices, including iPads and Mac computers. Android can not do that because the hardware and software are not as tightly integrated.

There are several other systems competing for third place. Microsoft Windows is the most promising, then fell BlackBerry pioneer of the bunch. Windows is a good system, but has fewer applications.

How should you pay?


Simply used to pay $ 200 for the best phone, and the phone company covered the remaining $ 450 or so, which offset higher service fees for the duration of their contract of two years. Lately, telephone companies have been trying to wean customers off subsidies by having customers bring cell used or pay full price in installments. With T-Mobile, which is the only option. In return, you pay less in monthly service fees.

If I forgo subsidies usually come out ahead if you sign up for a data plan bigger - 10 gigabytes or more with AT & T and Verizon and 20 gigabytes or more with Sprint. The monthly savings are not as great with smaller data plans, so they are giving up more subsidies you get at discounts. But payment plans have other advantages, including the ability to negotiate your phone in for a newer before the typical two-year contract is up model.

You can buy the phone through your wireless service provider or go to a dealer such as Best Buy or Wal-Mart. You can also find phone on eBay and Amazon. Check with your company first to make sure it will work, as the networks in the US vary.

How much should you pay?


It may be tempting to spend a lot for the latest iPhone or Samsung Galaxy, but you should ask yourself if you need all that power. This is especially true if you are paying full price. (If you are getting a subsidized phone with a contract, then why do not pay the phone company for the better?)

There are several phones available for $ 200 or less, at prices no contract, compared to $ 600 to $ 700 for the typical high-end phone. Normally, you are giving up a better camera, better screen and a faster processor. But what you get in a budget phone is usually good enough for such basic things as email, Facebook and even video. Owners of smartphones for the first time will notice a big difference in their basic phones.

Veterans smartphones might want more, especially if the phone is its main access to the Internet. Regular users may even consider paying more for additional storage. Phones fill quickly with photos and video and music downloaded.
