These are the 9 biggest reasons that people are upgrading to the iPhone 7

The iPhone 7 isn’t nearly as boring a phone as many of us thought it might be when rumors began to spread earlier this year, but with millions of units already sold, it’s clear that many consumers find it to be a worthwhile upgrade. So how exactly are Apple fans justifying their purchase of the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus?

iPhone 7 Plus Vs Android

The reason this lifelong Android user jumped ship to the iPhone 7 Plus is surprising

The reason this lifelong Android user jumped ship to the iPhone 7 Plus is surprising

By about 8 hours ago.

Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus might seem “boring” to some users, and there’s nothing wrong with that. There’s no question that the new iPhones share the same design that Apple has already used for two years, making this the first time Apple has ever held onto an iPhone design for three consecutive iPhone generations. There are some minor differences such as the cameras and antenna lines, and we all know by now that the new phones have ditched the standard 3.5mm headphone jack as well. And of course on the inside, both iPhone 7 models are brand new and feature huge performance gains as well as improved displays.

Whenever new iPhones are released, some Android fans choose to jump ship and try Apple on for size. The iPhone 6 cycle perhaps saw the most defectors join Apple’s camp in recent history, but the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus could end up drawing even more switchers thanks to the mess Samsung is in right now. Stories from people moving over from Android to a new iPhone are popping up all over the web, but one in particular caught my eye this week. More →

iPhone 8 Rumors

iPhone 8 isn’t even here yet and details are leaking about its successor

iPhone 8 isn’t even here yet and details are leaking about its successor

Due next year, the iPhone 8 is expected to bring the radical redesign iPhone users have been waiting for. The phone could feature an edge-to-edge OLED display, curved edges, and it might lack a physical home button thanks to Apple’s 3D Touch technology and a new TouchID fingerprint scanner embedded under the screen. At least, that’s what many reports are saying about Apple’s 2017 device. But if there’s one thing that appears to be certain about the 2017 iPhones is that at least one version will have an OLED display, likely made by Samsung.

The South Korean giant won’t be Apple’s only OLED supplier going forward though, as the company is looking to partner with Foxconn-owned Sharp for OLED smartphone screens beginning in 018. More →

iPhone 7 Plus Battery Explosion

Another iPhone 7 battery blew up, but this time the phone didn’t go up in flames

Another iPhone 7 battery blew up, but this time the phone didn’t go up in flames

An iPhone 7 exploded a few days ago, according to images posted online by the phone’s owner. It’s not clear at this time what caused the incident, and you shouldn’t worry about it just yet. The iPhone 7 doesn’t appear to have widespread problem like Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7, but isolated incidents will always happen. Phones do explode, and most of us go about our daily lives without even noticing them. It’s just that the recent Galaxy Note 7 recall has risen awareness about gadgets and their batteries.

With that, a second incident involving an iPhone 7 is now making the rounds, but this time the phone did not go up in flames. Instead, the battery simply “inflated,” which is something you may recall having seen before with faulty batteries in Apple devices. More →

Apple says iMessage on iPhone 7 is ‘practically magic’

Apple on Thursday continued its barrage of iPhone 7 ads by releasing a short one-minute clip that’s all about balloons. Well, it’s mostly about balloons, great scenery, and magic. The point Apple makes is that the new iMessage experience in iOS 10 is “practically magic,” focusing expressly on the iPhone 7. More →

Chinese state TV accuses Samsung of ‘discrimination’ in Galaxy Note 7 recall

This is most likely a Galaxy Note 7 recall problem Samsung didn’t see coming: being accused of discrimination by the Chinese state TV. The influential broadcaster believes that Samsung mishandled the Galaxy Note 7 recall in the region. The comments were posted on CCTV’s website on Thursday, with the piece saying that Samsung’s September 2nd recall was “full of arrogance.”

iPhone 7 Bluetooth Problem

Now even Bluetooth isn’t working on some iPhone 7 devices

Now even Bluetooth isn’t working on some iPhone 7 devices

Apple, September 7th: “It takes courage to kill the headphone jack, but it’s fine, because you can just connect to everything with Bluetooth!” Uh, about that.

Numerous reports are coming in saying that the iPhone 7 has big problems connecting to in-car Bluetooth. Problems range from BMWs to Kias to my own Ford, and include audio cut-out or problems connecting. Given that I can’t use the aux-in cable and also charge my phone, this is a very real problem.

How to stop your smartphone battery from exploding

How to stop your smartphone battery from exploding

By on September 29, 2016 at 2:20 PM.

2016 may be remembered as the year self-driving cars started to become a thing, or as a low point for American democracy. But it will also be remembered as the time that expensive electronics started doubling as handwarmers.

Apple and Samsung devices (and washing machines!) have started going boom with slightly worrying regularity, all because of the sometimes-unstable power source lingering inside. Here’s how to keep your lithium-ion-using device at a safe and non-explosive temperature.
