5 Common Ways of Breaking Your iPhone Screen!

There are many things which can lead to you breaking your iPhone screen, eventually requiring iPhone screen repair in Winnipeg. By shedding light on some of the most common accidents and decisions which lead to broken iPhone screens, hopefullywe can help you to keep your iPhone safer!

 

  1. Dropping

As you’ve probably guessed, simply dropping your iPhone is one of the easiest ways to break its screen. This is especially true if your iPhone isn’t protected by a suitable case or cover. Try to avoid carrying your iPhone in precarious situations (such as when carrying multiple other objects) as this could lead to drops on hard surfaces.

 

  1. Throwing

Perhaps they’re trying to quickly throw their phone to a friend (with the intention of them catching it) or they’re in a rage at an app and throw their phone in anger. Whatever the reasons, iPhone screen repair is commonly required due to people throwing their phones around as if they’re invincible. Newsflash – they’re not!

 

  1. Shallow pockets

Many people carry their iPhone intheir pocket, although this can prove risky if your pockets are a bit on the small side. For instance, if wearing jeans with small pockets, the pockets can “rise up” if you sit down, bend over, or squat in a certain way. As a result, the phones are often pushed out of the pocket, falling to the floor and smashing.

 

4.  Children and animals

As the old saying goes – you shouldn’t work with children or animals, and the same is true when it comes to your iPhone. Unless you’ve got a tank-esquecase to protect it, you should keep your device out of the reach of animals and children who could easily drop, throw, bite, and step on the device.

 

  1. Bar vehicle phone holders

It’s not uncommon for people to use their iPhones as GPS systems and audio players in their cars, making it necessary to buy an iPhone holder which attaches to their windshield or dash. However, there are many temptingly cheap vehicle phone holders online which do not stay affixed to your car’s dash or windshield properly. The next thing you know, you go over a bump in the road and your iPhone holder flies away, damaging the phone and distracting you from the road.

We’re very familiar with various types of iPhone screen repair, so don’t fret if one of these things has happened to you. If you’re looking for top-notch and affordable iPhone screen repair in Winnipeg, look no further than Mission Repair Centre !

Tips and Tricks for Mac users!

Tips For Mac Users

If you own a Mac computer, then there is something you should know. The following tips will show you some alternative ways of doing things.

To begin with, when you don’t feel like speaking to Siri, command-space shortcut on your keyboard will get you to Spotlight search.

If you are interested in a quick conversion all you need to do is launch Spotlight and type the figure you wish to convert such as money or a unit of mass. However, you should be mindful that certain things like currency conversion will only work when your Mac is online.

If you wish to take a screenshot of a specific part of your screen, you just need to tap Command + Shift 4. After you do that a box will appear when you click; you should then drag the box to the location on the screen that you want to take a picture of.

How about exporting an image in a format that’s not listed? What you need to do here is hold down the Option key while clicking the Format drop down list; a selection of new image export options will be shown.

What if you try to fill in forms? The best and most efficient way is to go to System Preferences>Keyboard, clicking the All controls radio button for Full Keyboard Access.

When you resize your Windows using Split Screen view, hold down the Option key and that will enable you to see both windows clearly.

Next tip is useful if you are working with numerous documents on your Mac but need to find a specific one. You will get to it fast by just tapping the F3 button to obtain a minimized view of all your documents.

When listening to your favorite song or watching a movie, you can tap Option and Shift while raising or lowering volume for much more sensitive control.

Renaming files can be quickly accomplished by selecting them in the enclosing folder and right clicking on them. If you then choose an option Rename items, you will be able to assign them any name that you might want along with an appropriate number.

Now, let’s say you get stuck on a particular application. You can get out of it by tapping Command + Option and pressing Esc. Force Quit dialog box will appear when you do this.

Are you at times having trouble finding your work folders? You will resolve this by launching a new Finder window, selecting Show Sidebar and just dragging and dropping your work folder into the sidebar. That will also allow for easy access to the folder.

As a Mac user, you probably know how to navigate between apps using Command and Tab on your machine but do you know that you can also quit an app by simply selecting it and tapping Q? Other hidden features can be unlocked when you try using Command in your Menu bar.

You are also able to move Menu icons by clicking on one while holding down the Command key. However, you must be really careful while doing it in order not to pull it from the Menu bar.

Don’t feel like receiving any Notifications? In such a case, just press the Option key and tap the Notifications icon in the top right. The icon’s color should then change to light gray thus showing that it has been disabled.

The final tip is regarding the length of time it takes to back your data up on your Mac. Normally, such processes can be quite lengthy because they are designated as a background activity. It is in a way good for you as it is assumed that you are doing something else with your Mac. So how do you speed the process up, you might ask? By launching Terminal and pasting in the following:

sudo sysctl debug.lowpri_throttle_enabled=0

The process will be initiated when you type in your login password. Unfortunately, your data backup settings will revert back to their lengthy original state once you reboot your machine unless you follow the instructions found on the following website:

Flagship feature of the new MacBook Pro

Usefulness of the Touch Bar, Flagship Feature of the New MacBook Pro

Sam is finally home after a busy day at work. He has some time and as he is sitting down at his new computer, Apple’s latest MacBook Pro, he is thinking that he might explore the Touch Bar, its flagship feature.

What is the Touch Bar then? It is an OLED display strip replacing the physical row of function keys. As Sam begins his investigations, he quickly discovers that this dynamic zone at the top of his keyboard allows apps to display custom buttons, sliders, switches and scrubbers, thus adding a new way to his interaction with Mac applications that goes beyond text input and mouse pointers.

So what does he first observe? Well, he notices that the Touch Bar’s main interface is split into 3 sections: a system button, the area for variable app controls and the Control Strip.

The system button, controlled by macOS Sierra, displays a Cancel, Done or virtual ‘esc’ key.

The ‘app region’ in the middle will light up with contextual buttons and actions of different kinds, depending on the type of currently activated app. The keyword here is flexibility and some of the things Sam will be able to do are ones like expanding, contracting and customizing system controls, answering his iPhone or FaceTime call from the keyboard without moving his cursor, selecting palette and tap to choose a color for text and objects, getting quick access to text suggestions and emoji in apps like Messages and Mail or accessing the function keys by holding down the FN key on the keyboard among others.

The Control Strip on the right contains media keys and brightness controls. It can be expanded or collapsed depending on how much of the Touch Bar screen real estate Sam would wish to dedicate to app content.

Sam could also configure his Touch Bar to display a virtual set of normal function keys.

According to Apple, the Touch Bar contains a custom T1 chip powering the Touch ID and Apple Pay features.

Next, Sam notices that its controls always take up the full height so he is only dealing with a movement along the X-axis.

Then he realizes that the buttons appear with vibrant and saturated colors.

As his Touch Bar experience continues, Sam discovers that Apple’s Developer API enables third-party developers to create unique but relatively-static controls for their individual needs.

Sam feels that the Touch Bar is as responsive to his touch as his other device that he keeps carrying with him every day, namely his iPhone. He also sees that it blends in beautifully with the rest of the keyboard. His wide color OLED display is responsible for making his virtual keys appear real.

Mission Repair Centre recommends that just like Sam, you too should explore your Touch Bar feature on your MacBook Pro, if you have one. You will be happy to know that there are already many apps with Touch Bar support which are currently being developed and will be released before the end of this year.

Time will only tell if this flagship feature shall become an essential part of each future Mac. For now, it is something that is really worth exploring.

Wireless Charging for iPhone 8 !

Foxconn Currently Testing Wireless Charging For iPhone 8

Are you aware that Foxconn has already started testing wireless charging for iPhone 8? Yes, the Taiwanese company also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry, is in the process of making wireless charging modules to go with the iPhone’s next release scheduled for 2017. However, success of this new feature will depend on company’s achieving satisfactory yield rate following tests’ completion.

What is a yield rate, you might ask? Well, it is a measure of the number of satisfactory or working units in the production of a batch of components. Therefore, for instance if Foxconn were to determine that their yield rate was 99%, that would mean that in a batch of 100 iPhones, only one would fail the wireless charging test.

If the yield rate of the wireless charging modules will not achieve expected or acceptable value, then their continued production could be deemed unprofitable. Let’s hope it doesn’t happen as this new feature will certainly prove handy for you.

Other than the yield rate, it is also yet unclear whether all iPhone models for release in 2017 will come equipped with this new function.

The introduction of wireless charging capabilities in an iPhone is part of Apple’s ongoing efforts to boost sales of the device during its upcoming 10th anniversary. New model’s name iPhone 8 may still be changed given the special occasion of its launch.

This special upgrade comes at the time of Apple’s first annual revenue decline since 2001 stemming from a saturated smartphone market and an increased need for innovative features.

It has been reported that iPhone’s current metal casing will be replaced by a glass back with a metal frame. It has also been stated that all future iPhones will employ curved organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen display although it is unclear when it will happen.

The concept of wireless charging is not new and it has already been introduced in other phones such as Android and South Korea’s Samsung and LG Electronics. Hence, in order to be competitive, Apple has decided to extend the wireless charging range meaning that now the device does not have to be as close to a charging source. Please think what it means for you, the user. Now you don’t have to seat yourself right next to the source, whether you are in a restaurant, a coffee shop or anywhere else in order to charge your phone. Therefore, it will simply prove much more convenient for you to get a new iPhone with a wireless charging option rather than any of the other ones, with a shorter range.

Apple’s extended wireless charging range will allow you to charge your new iPhone device up to 15 feet away.

The downside of this technology is that you will also need to carry a charging mat which needs to be plugged into a wall before you could commence your charging process.

Finally, it should be noted that the cutting edge features like wireless charging and OLED technology could, at least initially, be limited to high-end premium models only.
