Dropping your phone is inevitable and there is no point in fighting it. It WILL eventually happen and you better pray that luck is on your side when it does because a cracked screen replacement is no joke. That shit is expensive. You can of course buy safety covers, screen protection sleeves and whatnot, which will essentially give you a couple more opportunities to drop the phone before the screen is totally screwed, but inevitably your screen will need replacement at some stage. Deal with it. Apple have punted the fact that the new devices they launched a few weeks ago are flatter, thinner and sleeker (check out their specs here), which is great, but the question on everyone’s lips is what happens when I drop it? Does flat, thin and sleek equate to weak, flimsy and soft?
Apple have had an interesting two weeks. Firstly they launched the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus (read about it here) and then they launched their Apple Watch (read about it here), which looks awesome! Late last week they made their new operating system – iOS 8 – available for download and I am busy downloading it as I type this. On the surface, the new operating system is very similar to its predecessor except – as expected – Apple have ironed out a few kinks which existed with iOS 7 and have added some cool new features. New operating system’s usually spell the end of your phone’s battery life, so I am quite interested to see what happens once this iOS 8 has downloaded and I have installed it. Here is a great video from Tech Smartt, reviewing what is new with the new iOS 8.
It’s been quite the week for leaked images. Firstly there were the provocatively NSFW pictures of Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton, which had the intraweb doing backflips whilst the most recent images of the new iPhone 6 seem to be the most plausible images of the phone yet. As with most tech leaks, we’re never quite sure of the legitimacy of the images, however, in this case the chaps at Feld & Volk – an association, consisting of artists and engineers, who create unique devices developed on the basis of iPhone and iPad – have released a video of the iPhone in someone’s hands. Seems legit. I suppose.
I’m an Apple user and there for concern myself with all things Apple related. If you haven’t joined the revolution as yet, I only have one question for you: Why not? Anyway. Rumours of what the new iPhone 6 will look like have been doing the rounds and the latest ‘leaked’ pics seem to be the most believable to date. Initially there don’t seem to be any major differences from the iPhone 5S, however there are some varying details which are of interest.
