5 Reasons iPhones Are Better Than Androids

If you buy any of the best smartphones, you’ll be in good shape. But, if you’re having trouble deciding between an iPhone or an Android, here are some ways the iPhone trumps Android.
The reason to go the Apple route isn’t just the platform; it’s how the software and hardware complement each other. The 3D Touch feature in the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is a perfect example.
The iPhone also works seamlessly with other Apple gadgets, including iPads, the Apple Watch and Macs. So there’s an ecosystem factor.

 

1. Its The Easiest Phone To Use

ease-of-use2

The iPhone remains the easiest phone to use by far. There’s no separate app drawer for your apps and no annoying overlay to get in the way. Some may lament the lack of change in the look and feel of iOS over the years, but I consider it a plus that it works pretty much the same as it did way back in 2007. Pick it up, turn it on, touch the app to open.

Of course, Apple has folded in enhancements over the years, such as Siri and Control Center, but the iPhone still has zero learning curve. The proactive assistance features, improved search and smarter Siri add up to a better overall user experience than Android.

 

2.  The Best Apps First

sdfsdfsdf

Today, both iPhones and Androids have well over 1 million apps in their stores. But, the iPhone is still favored by developers as the launch platform of choice for the hottest new apps.

The Google Play store is like the Netflix of app stores; it gets the hits, but usually after they see their first run on iOS. For example, it took two years for Instagram to debut on Android after it launched for the iPhone. Other apps have taken only months to jump from iOS to Android. But the message is clear. If you don’t want to be treated like a second-class app citizen, the iPhone is still the king.

 

3. Better Hardware and Software Integration

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus introduce a new feature that no Android phone maker could copy. The 3D Touch display is smart enough to sense pressure, allowing you to take quick actions from the home screen just by long pressing on an app icon. Or you could peek at that email just by lightly tapping on it in your inbox. Only Apple ties hardware and software together like this.

 

4. Great Cameras

GalaxyS6-vs-iPhonePlus-Cameras-11

The iPhone consistently produces pleasing photos with accurate color – generation after generation. And the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus up the ante with a sharper 12-MP camera with 4K video capture. Just as important as the bump in resolution is Apple’s homegrown image signal processor, which promises more realistic colors.
The new iPhones are also looking to take the selfie crown from Android phones. The FaceTime HD has a new Retina Flash feature that boosts the brightness of the screen to double as a flash.

 

5. Fast iPhone Updates

iPhone-vs-Android-2015-iPhone-is-Better-9

iPhone owners enjoy quick and regular iOS updates for the iPhone no matter what carrier they use and Android updates take months to arrive on all the devices. After an Android device is 18 months old, you may need to wait for a new Android smartphone to get the latest software.

Top 10 Features Of The Apple Watch

1)Apple Pay

Apple-Payapplewatch

Many people are becoming more familiar with Apple Pay on their iPhones. This function is also available on the Apple Watch. All you have to do is double-click the button next to the dial on the edge and hold the watch face close to the payment terminal or reader. You will then hear a beep and feel “a gentle pulse,” confirming that your payment has been made.

 

2)Digital Touch Communication

Digital-Touch

This Apple Watch feature makes keeping up with your loved ones a little more fun. You can draw a heart shape or a smiley face on the watch face and send it to a friend. You are also able to send your heartbeat! The heart rate sensor will pick up your pulse, and transmit that to your loved one. The receiving device will buzz in time with your pulse. A walkie-talkie feature lets you share sound bites, while Tap sends silent, gentle pulses to your contacts in the patterns you tap on the display. You can also use Digital Touch to make watch-to-watch calls to friends that have the Apple Watch.

 

3)Siri

maxresdefault

Siri has gotten a little bit more personal with the Apple Watch. With Siri on your wrist, you won’t have to lift a finger to reply to your friends or to simply check the weather. Siri on the Apple Watch acts just like she does on the iPhone, but you’ll likely have to be tethered to a phone to get Web-powered search results. You can also just say “Hey Siri” to get the voice assistant to take your next command.

 

4)Actionable Notifications and Glances

applewatchapps-100531434-large

In addition to apps, the Apple Watch will deliver alerts in the forms of Actionable Notifications and Glances. Glances refer to simple, read-only notifications that don’t need any other action. This can be reminders for a weather update or for upcoming events. Taping a glance will launch the app for more functions. Actionable Notifications let you react to your alerts with predefined functions set by the app. For instance, if you’ve left your garage open at home, a smart home app can notify you to your Apple Watch with the option to close the garage without having to take out your phone and open the app.

 

5)Remote Control Functions

apple-watch-garage-door

The Apple Watch can double as a remote control for your devices. Navigate your Apple TV menu, skip through music on your iPhone or iTunes music library, enable Do Not Disturb and Airplane modes on your phone, turn on/off the smart lights in your home — all from your wrist. You can use the smartwatch to not only remotely unlock your door, but through a connected camera, see who enters your home as well.

 

6)Passbook Integration

apple-pay-Apple-Watch

Thanks to Passbook on the Apple Watch, you can breeze through airport security on your next vacation. You can quickly pull up your plane tickets, boarding passes and loyalty cards without having to reach for your phone. When you enter a place where your discount or loyalty cards can be used, the app will also an alert.

 

7)Full-fledged Apps

uber-apple-watch-app

Unlike some other smartwatch platforms, such as Android Wear Devices, the Apple Watch supports full-fledged apps.  Meaning, you might not need to be tied to an iPhone to use those programs.
In addition to Apple’s own Activity, Calendar, Maps, Passbook, Music, Alarm, Stocks, Weather, Photos and Settings apps (to name just a few), you’ll also be able to download plenty of third-party apps to your Apple Watch. These include Instagram, Uber, MLB.com At Bat, Nike+ Running, OpenTable, Shazam, Twitter and WeChat.
You can download the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and start browsing the apps that are already available for the smartwatch. The app also lets you set up your friends circle and determine which notifications you want to allow.

 

8)Fitness and Health Tracking

apple-watch-fitness-app

Not only does the Apple Watch pack a heart rate sensor on its underside, it also features a set of apps to help you keep track of your well-being. The Activity app collects data on all your movement throughout the day — whether it be standing, moving or running — and prompts you to get up when you’ve been sitting still too long. You can also set goals and the app shows your progress on rings that fill up as you approach your targets.
The Workout app gives athletes more detailed information and measurement for more precise feedback. You’ll get real-time stats on your time spent, calories burned, distance traveled, speed and pace for activities such as walking, cycling, and running. You can also set goals for each session and get updates as you exercise, as well as a summary at the end and once each week.

9)Novel Digital Crown

 

digital-crown For some people, Smartwatches can be hard to use because of their tiny displays, but the Apple Watch has a cool tool that makes navigating the small screen easier. The Digital Crown is a knob on the watch’s right edge that acts like a home button. Pressing it returns you to the main screen, and turning it lets you zoom into apps or scroll through options in the interface.

 

10)Hotel or Car Key Replacement

apple-watch-w-hotels-app

At its Spring Forward event, Apple showed off a whole bunch of apps, including Starwood Hotels’s preferred Guests app. This program not only lets you see your reservation information, it also lets you turn your Apple Watch into a room key so you can open your door with a tap of your watch. It’s not clear if this will work with all of the group’s hotels, but it won’t be surprising if plenty more hotels follow suit soon.
The watch is also designed to potentially replace car keys.

The Top 4 Social Media Apps and What They Are Used For

Social media is a great way to stay engaged in an online community. For you parents, you don’t need to know the ins and outs of all the apps and sites that are “hot” right now (and frankly, if you did, they wouldn’t be trendy anymore). But, social media isn’t just for the kids in high school anymore. It is not only about keeping track of people you know, but is becoming a huge part of business. You get to create a nice profile for yourself and you can become more appealing to clients or employers.

 

              FACEBOOK

facebook3

Facebook is one of the easiest and one of the best social media networks. You can:
-Create a profile with brief information about yourself and a photo.
-Follow friends and check in on how their doing by writing a short status on their wall or sending a message
-If you have a business, you can create a page describing what you do and share it with people you know. If they like what they see, they will pass it on to other people.
-Find an photo, video, or article you like and post it so anyone that follows you can comment, watch, and share it on their own page.

 

            INSTAGRAM

instagramIcon_400x400

Instagram is a social media app for photo sharing. You don’t create a profile with information about yourself, but you can write a short bio. With Instagram, you can:
-Upload and edit photos directly in the app. People can like and comment on them.
-Show your friends and family what you’re up to and photos of your cat.
-Follow your most idolized celebrities and see what they are up to.
-For a more professional audience, you can share photos of what you create and connect with people that do the same thing.

 

              TWITTER

 

unnamed

If you’re not on Twitter as a business-owner, you’re doing something wrong. Twitter is a great way to connect with an audience and deliver news about what you’re doing. With Twitter:
-You are able to write a short bio about yourself and add a photo.
-Similar to Facebook’s status updates, you can write short updates, but only up to 140 characters.
-Search for topics in the search bar to find other people that like your interests.
-Like Instagram, you can follow your favorite celebrities to see what they are up too.
-Add photos, videos, and links, but the writing has to be kept short. This ensures that people looking through the feed can read what you have to say quickly. Make sure you like, replay and even retweet tweets from your followers so you can create a community.

 

 

              SNAPCHAT

snapchat-logo

 

Snapchat may have begun as a way to send naked photos that don’t stay around, but now it has turned into a fun way to connect with your friends. A photo or video only lasts 10 seconds and then is gone forever. You can:
-Write or draw on pictures and videos to make them more fun.
-Send short videos or a private picture to a specific friend.
-Post videos or pictures of what your doing through the day to your “Story” for all of your snapchat friends to see.

 

So why are all of these social media networks so popular?

  1. Opportunity to meet new people.
  2. Join groups that share your interest.
  3. Helps Businesses to reach out.
  4. We stay in-touch with what our friends are doing
  5. Stay up-to-date with current news and events.
  6. Enjoy funny or entertaining content.
  7. People get to share their opinions.
  8. Sharing details of our every day life.
  9. We get the chance to stalk all of our celebrity crushes 😀

The Importance Of Always Backing Up Your Apple Devices To iCloud Before Taking A Software Update

You probably keep some very important information on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Whether that’s photos of your kids or the email addresses of your most important business contacts, you definitely don’t want to lose that kind of information. But what would happen to your files, photos, and everything else if your iOS device were lost, stolen, or severely damaged? If you backed up your data, it will all still be available to you. Everyone who owns a mobile device should back up their data. Period. With iOS, you have two simple options: use iCloud or use iTunes. With the new updates on the Apple Devices constantly coming out, it is very important for everyone to know how to back up their information to iCloud. This is very important to do before installing any new software updates on any of your Apple Devices. Recently, here at iPhonefix, I have personally seen what can happen when you take a update without backing up your content to iCloud. I have seen quite a few clients come in here after a recent software update with all of their information lost on their iPhone or iPad. Sometimes with these software updates, they can cause problems in your Apple devices. Especially if you have a older version of the iPad or iPhone. And when you don’t back up your data to iCloud, or iTunes, you lose everything and there is no way of getting anything back.

How to Back Up iPhone & iPad Using iCloud
1. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup.
2. Under Backup, turn on the switch for iCloud Backup.

The Best Apps And Games For The New iPad Pro

The iPad Pro is finally here!! The iPad Pro launched shortly after midnight on Wednesday alongside the new Apple Pencil stylus and Smart Keyboard. While all tablet models were available for same-day in-store pickup, estimated delivery times for both accessories started out at one week. Apple has since sold through most of its launch day allotment of 128GB iPad Pros, though 32GB models can be found at many brick-and-mortar Apple Store locations nationwide. Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard orders continue to pile up, with current ship-by dates pegged at 4 to 5 weeks.

Apple has launched a pair of new featured sections on the App Store showcasing apps that take advantage of the massive 12.9-inch Retina display the iPad Pro has.

At the top of “Amazing Apps” is a list of software boasting built-in support for the Apple Pencil (Apple Pencil Is Currently Unavailable) including uMake, Procreate and Paper. “Powerful Multitasking” offers a variety of choices including popular titles Curator and Todoist.

Artistic users will have a particular interest in a selection of videography and photography apps like iMovie, Adobe Photoshop Fix and Enlight, all well-suited to for editing on iPad Pro’s large canvas.

Apple splits “Great Games” into three subcategories. One for visually impressive games, another touting those with “Fantastic Sounds” and a third list mainly comprised of former Editors’ Choice titles and App Store chart toppers. The first featured section showcases games that are optimized for iPad Pro. Apple touts that the size and power of the device takes gaming to a whole new level. Apps featured in this section include ShadowmaticLumino CityGeometry WarsHorizon ChaseBroken Age, Smash Hit,   and many more.

Split-Screen Multitasking For The iPad

Back in September, iOS 9 brought us the long-awaited Split-Screen multitasking feature for the iPad for the first time, letting users operate two apps simultaneously. There are three different multitasking features that are available on various iPad models: Split view, slide over, and Picture in Picture.

 

Slide Over
Slide Over can be activated within any app by swiping left from the right side of the iPad to bring up a small side panel that displays a second app alongside the first app. Slide Over takes up 1/3 of the space, and any app that has built-in multitasking support will appear in the side pane. Swiping downwards on the Slide Over window from the top of the iPad screen will allow you to switch between apps.

ipadmultitaskingslideview-800x577

Split View
Split View displays two apps side-by-side, with each app taking up half of the screen. With Split View, two apps can be used at the same time and controlled independently. You can do things like copy and paste content from one app to another while both are open on the screen. Pulling the Slide Over window further towards the middle of the screen in landscape mode on an iPad Air 2 or an iPad mini 4 will activate Split View. 

ipadmultitaskingsplitscreen-800x577

 

Picture in Picture
Picture in Picture is the third multitasking feature. This feature lets you participate in FaceTime calls or watch videos while using other apps. When watching a movie or when on a FaceTime call, tapping on the Home button sends the video to a corner of the iPad’s display. From there, you’re able to use other apps while you watch the movie or carry on with the FaceTime conversation.

pictureinpicture-800x577

Apple’s built-in apps support the new multitasking features, but third-party developers need to build multitasking support into their apps.

If you have an iPad Air 2 or an iPad mini 4, you can use all three of the different multi-tasking features. The upcoming iPad Pro will also support all three multitasking features.

If you have an older iPad, like an iPad 2, or an original iPad mini, none of the multitasking features will be available.

If you have an iPad Air, iPad mini 2, or iPad mini 3, you can use Slide Over and Picture in Picture, but you can’t use Split View because those older iPad models are not powerful enough to reliably support two apps at once.

 

iPhoneFix - Let's talk about fake certifications.

Best iPhone Repair Store In Jupiter, Florida

In any local market, competition is eventually going to come to be. And from that moment on, always up for debate will be, which one is the best of the best to go to?

Often, in the iPhone repair industry, the way new competition tries to get ahead of the original, established local companies, is buy slashing prices. But with slashing prices comes questions that consumers should be asking themselves.

We have a saying here at iPhoneFix.com. “You can’t be the best and the cheapest. You can only be one or the other”.

With that said, let’s talk about our local competition, and how they can perform repairs cheaper than us.

One thing new businesses do to spike attention and sales is to offer a groupon. Let me tell you why this is a bad idea, (As we learned the hard way). With Groupon, you have to cut your price in half, and then inn half again. So if an iPad repair is $139, Groupon will offer it to their customers for $69. But you, the business owner, only get about $30 of that price, because Groupon needs to make their money too. So with that said, Groupon was the one advertising medium that brought us a TON of business. But……..

It worked SO well, that it stressed our cash flow. Massively. And the other downside of Groupon is that, people who buy Groupon’s are obviously shopping for a great deal, and for some reason, even though these people are already getting the deal at a steal, they always seem to want more. More discounts, etc. Also they are even more picky with their repairs than a full price paying customer. Not that we perform repairs that are sub par, but they just seemed to ask many more questions about the repair than other people.

So Groupon’s work for advertising, but are a big no no for our company. Never again. So the little guys or the start ups will learn this the hard way unless they happen to read this article.

The most popular, and trending way for our competition to beat us at the price game, is the subject no one wants to talk about or admit. We are talking about selling refurbished LCD’s to their customers.

Almost all of our local competition use or refurbish LCD screens. We’ve seen their glass first hand. This is a high profit process for them. But we STILL refuse to use refurbished parts on our repairs. We only buy brand new parts of the very highest quality that have a lifetime warranty by our supplier. Our supplier goes through a quality control process in China like no other, so that when we receive our parts, there are virtually no defective pieces. We have done business with several big name suppliers in the US, and no one comes near the overall quality or customer service of our supplier. So we pay extra for our quality. For you, the consumer.

So yes. We are a few dollars more expensive than most local repair “shops”. But do you want a brand new LCD on your iPhone? Or a used, refurbished one.

And although our competition claim to hold multiple certifications, none of them matter. The only one that matters if you are repairing Apple products are Apple certifications. Many of our competition claim to have Microsoft Certified Technicians. But that certification has nothing to do with being able to repair phones or mobile devices.

Also, most iPhone repair “shops” (I say shops because ours is more of a “Store”), try to use some sort of made up certification. For instance, one local guy advertises “Certified Repair Technicians”. Wrong. Notice that they don’t list what certification they hold. It’s a deceptive statement to fool the public. And I know myself that this person holds NO certifications what-so-ever. I have seen iPhone repair shops all over the United States use different labels to make themselves look certified. “Certified iPhone Repair Technician”, “Certified Mobile Repair Technician”, and a ton of others. 99% are made up certifications that don’t exist.

It should be noted that, as of this writing, Apple still does not offer any certification related to iPhone or iPad repair. So there isn’t one. Apple offers other certifications, but Apple does not want people fixing iPhones or iPads because it is big business for them. They want you to have to go into their store. So be careful if anyone ever states that they are an Apple Certified iPhone Technician. It does not exist.

Currently, our industry is in what we call a “Wild Wild West” scenario. It is still so new that there are no real leaders so far. Many repair schools are popping up online though. While most are in it for the money, and offer their own flavor of “Mobile Repair Certification”, those certs don’t really hold water in the repair community, because there is no real, regulated “mobile repair certification” that we know of. So be aware of this.

We at iPhoneFix, encourage and employ Apple Certified Technicians. Our techs are hand picked and trained by the owner himself. We don’t just hire anyone to work here, that’s why our repair quality is so much more consistent than our competition. The owner holds multiple Apple certifications, and our sister company Cobalt Computer Consulting is a certified member of the Apple Consultants Network.

So when you are getting your iPhone or iPad repaired, ask those questions. What kind of certifications do your employees hold? Where do you get your parts from? And ask point blank, “Are your parts refurbished or new?”.

The New Fourth-Generation Apple T.V. Remote

Apple’s long-awaited fourth-generation Apple TV is now for sale! The new Apple TV has some great new features.

The New Apple TV features an A8 processor and 32 to 64GB of storage, along with a touch-based remote control that doubles as a gaming controller. It has a brand new operating system. The new operation system, “tvOS,”  includes deep Siri integration and a full App Store.

Combined, these new factors are aimed at expanding the available content on the Apple TV and making it easy for users to sort through that content to find new TV shows to follow, new movies to watch, and new games to play.

Apple TV includes 2GB RAM and an A8 chip that’s much faster than the A5 in the previous version, allowing the device to support a full App Store with both casual and console-quality games, in addition to a range of apps.

Apple TV includes Siri support for searching for content by voice command. Universal search capabilities allow users to search through multiple apps at once to find what they’re looking for. For example, when looking for a movie, it’s possible to search through Hulu, Netflix, iTunes, Showtime, and HBO all at once to find content, which is a lot simpler than attempting to find a movie or a show using the search feature in each individual app. Siri is accessed through the new Siri Remote. The new Siri Remote includes a glass Touch panel for navigating through the Apple TV interface as one would on an iPad or iPhone. The Siri Remote can double as a game controller. With Bluetooth 4.0, the Apple TV also supports third-party gaming controllers. Although, keyboards are not compatible. There are also new screen savers and a new Apple Music app that brings Apple’s new Music service to the television.

The new “Siri Remote” does not have the click wheel like the old Apple TV remote, replacing it instead with a glass Touch surface that lets users scroll through content on the Apple TV as they would on an iOS device.

appletvremote-800x606

 

Touch controls on the Siri Remote are an important part of the Apple TV navigation experience, which is designed to be simpler. According to Apple, the touch surface on the Apple TV remote is designed to feel “fluid and precise,” and so natural that a user never needs to look down at the remote to hunt for a button.

On the remote, a thumb can be used to scroll, swipe, select, and move around the screen. You can click anywhere on the surface to make a selection. It’s also possible to use the touch surface for fast forwarding and rewinding.

appletvremoteinterface-800x516

 

While the top of the Siri Remote is made of glass, the bottom half of is made of aluminum. It has two built-in microphones to let it hear Siri commands, along with a home button, a menu button, a set of volume up and down buttons for controlling volume, a Siri button that activates the personal assistant, and a button for pausing and playing shows.

At the bottom of the Siri remote, there’s a Lightning port that’s used for charging with the included Lightning to USB Cable that can be plugged into a USB port on a computer or an iOS power adapter. According to Apple, the Siri Remote’s battery lasts for several months on a single charge.

The Siri Remote has its own dedicated accessory, the Remote Loop, which attaches the bottom of the Siri Remote to the wrist so it doesn’t fly out of a hand during motion-based gameplay.
