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 !

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.

Reduce your iPhone Internet Data Usage if you use Facebook and Twitter Extensively

How Could You Reduce Your iPhone Internet Data Usage if You Use Facebook and Twitter Extensively?

 David’s girlfriend Anna also uses her iPhone extensively like David does. However, her main focus is on Facebook and Twitter. Just like David, Anna has already figured out that she can save on her cellular data usage by turning certain phone functions off, ones that she does not need or use very much.

Now she also needs to find out how her use of Facebook and Twitter affects her data usage. In order to do that she decides to talk to some experienced individuals as well as to do some research. Let us see what Anna has found out in due course.

She was relieved to know that both Facebook and Twitter provide you with an option to enable auto-play videos on Wi-Fi network only.

How can you find out how much of your cellular data is being consumed by Facebook and Twitter apps? Well, there are three essential steps. You begin by launching the Settings app, navigating to Cellular and scrolling down to the ‘Use Cellular Data For’ section. When Anna did that, she was shocked to see how much cellular data she was using for Facebook and Twitter. Hopefully, you will not be as shocked as Anna was.

So how do you disable auto-play videos in the Facebook app when on a cellular network? Well, there are several steps that you should follow and if you are like Anna, you will follow them carefully.

First, you should launch the Facebook app. Then you tap on More in the Tab bar at the bottom and scroll down to tap on Settings. A menu will pop up where you must tap on Account Settings. When in Account Settings, tap Videos and Photos. In Videos and Photos menu, you should tap Auto-play. Here Anna is faced with a choice. If she wants the auto-play feature to work only while connected to a Wi-Fi network, she should tap on ‘On Wi-Fi Connections Only’. Otherwise, she should tap Never Auto-play videos, if she doesn’t want the feature. As we already know, Anna was happy when she realized that both Facebook and Twitter allow you to enable auto-play videos on Wi-Fi network. Obviously then, she is going to choose that option.

Disabling procedure for auto-play videos in the Twitter app when on a cellular network is as follows.

Again, you launch the Twitter app and tap on the Me tab in the tab bar at the bottom. What you see is your profile popping up. Next to your profile pic, you see a little icon in shape of a gear. You should tap on it. As before, a menu will pop up where you must tap on Settings. Tap Video auto-play. Here you have two options: ‘Use Wi-Fi only’ and ‘Never play videos automatically’. Certainly, we already know what Anna will choose.

If you are a heavy Facebook and Twitter user like Anna, Mission Repair Centre recommends that you follow these simple procedures in order to save on your cellular data usage.

How Could You Reduce Your iPhone Internet Data Usage?

How Could You Reduce Your iPhone Internet Data Usage?

 

David is using his iPhone extensively as a result of which he ends up exceeding his monthly limit. Naturally, David is wondering what he could do in order to reduce internet data usage on his iPhone and thus reduce his monthly usage costs.

There are several different things that could be done. At the end you need to list them in order of importance. It might not be possible to implement all of them as some of your phone’s functions really matter to you whereas others do not matter as much.

Of course, things that matter to David may not matter to you and vice versa. Nevertheless, David’s example will show you the path towards reduction of your internet data usage.

One of the things you might do is disable or turn off Cellular Data Usage for iCloud. However David doesn’t want to do that. Why? Well, he uses iCloud extensively to transfer files or documents from his phone.

The second thing you might want to do is disable Automatic Downloads on Cellular Data and this is what David has decided to do. He did it as he very well knows that App downloads are some of the biggest files on his device. He will make sure that he is first connected to Wi-Fi before he starts downloading and updating his apps.

David knows that he should disable Wi-Fi Assist as Wi-Fi Assist uses Cellular Data while trying to supplement a weak Wi-Fi signal. David does not see the need for that. He will simply not use Wi-Fi if the signal is too weak.

Next remedy you might want to consider is monitoring or disabling data hungry apps. David knows that he may need some of those apps so he decides to find out how many of them (if not all) even need access to cellular data. He does this by checking the amount of cellular data used by his apps for the period since he has reset them.

A wise thing to do also is to use Per-App Options as different apps include their own options for controlling when cellular data is used which is what David does.

David also thinks that it is wise to disable Background App Refresh (usually disabled to save on battery life but you should check it anyways) as apps updating in the background consume data. He is aware of the fact that disabling them will not really affect his interaction with his phone.

David really likes listening to the music but he also knows that streaming high quality music consumes cellular data. The higher the quality, the larger the file. He decides to stream over Wi-Fi only.

David also wants to disable Autoplay Videos on Cellular Network as he is aware that more people are sharing videos on Facebook and Twitter at the cost of his cellular data.

David has also disabled Mail, Contacts and Calendar Sync options because he wants to get new emails and other data manually without having to use his cellular data. He has reduced Web Browser Data Usage by using a browser with a built-in data compression proxy. He also cached some of his favorite music, video, maps and article files in order to use them offline.

It is the recommendation of Mission Repair Centre that once you have reached your monthly limit and do not wish to exceed it you should avoid using cellular data completely. Nice feature of non-Wi-Fi applications such as ESPN is that they will not even load without cellular data being turned off so you can always use them if you have reached your data usage limit for the given month.
