The iPhone 7 will have no headphone jack
Yes it's true, the iPhone 7 will not be featuring a headphone jack. We've made numerous reports about the subject so far as we eagerly anticipate the release of the iPhone 7. So what will the future look like with out our trusty 3.5mm jack technology?
The future of headphone audio is the lightning port.
Apple wants manufacturers to stand behind them in creating a digital music interface that will work off of the lightning port on your iPhone and other devices. Such a bold move would neutralized the iPhones ability to work with old headphones and reflexively prevent lightning headphones from working with other types of cell phones and smartphones. Is this a smart move by Apple? We're waiting to be surprised at this point because nobody that I've spoken to feels like ...
Leaked Schematics of the iPhone 7
The iPhone 7 is still a few months out from release, but reports have surfaced recently that show schematics for the new iPhone 7 and we're finally getting a taste. Take a look below:
What's new with the iPhone 7?
The schematics taht we found on 9to5mac.com reveal that the iPhone 7 will use the exact same dimensions as the iPhone 6 series of phones as far as width is concerned. Rumors have also been fluttering around the web that the iPhone 7 will now had a touch sensitive home button and it will be dust and waterproof as well. Though we cannot confirm those things based on this schematic, it's clear to see that Apple has dropped the 3.5mm headphone jack which we've reported about for months now. In addition to that, they've made some room ...
iPhone 7 Curved Glass Screen
Just when it looked like Apple was going to innovate something new and exciting, they jumped into the curved glass screen market. Samsung made the biggest waves with their curved glass screens like we saw in the Galaxy Edge series of phones. According to an article on Macrumors.com, it looks like the 2017 iPhone is going to more closely resemble the iPhone 4 generation of phones. KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reports that Apple is "Seeking to move away from the metal casing designs that are no longer unique, Apple will reportedly take the glass-backed design used for the iPhone 4 and 4s 'to the next level' in building the 2017 iPhone." A curved screen would dramatically affect the way companies perform iPhone repair in Hoffman Estates.

America prefers iPhone
More than 100 million smartphone users in United States have elected to us an iPhone and almost 60% of those users are on an iPhone 6 or newer iPhone (this also means about 40% are using something older than an iPhone 6... cringe-worthy). The iPhone 4 is still practical to use today if you've run out of door stoppers or low powered flash lights but it's anyone's world. We did some articles earlier this year about the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6+ in Asia and how the 6+ towered over the standard 4.7" iPhone 6 in terms of sales. It's obvious that the Asian market is into big fat phones but can we group Americans into the same chubby-chasing category? The answer is no! The 4.7" iPhone 6 is far more popular by a 2:1 ratio as ...
iPhone 6 Cracked iPhone Repair
When the iPhone 6 was released by Apple, it was a massive sensation. Boosted by the dual release of the 6 plus, the 4.7" iPhone 6 saw record shattering sales. That wasn't the only shattering feature about the iPhone 6 however. You may remember all the buzz about the gorilla or Sapphire glass which was supposed to be featured in the iPhone 6 that would be highly resistant to scratching and shattering. That never happened and so they released a reinforced version of the glass that was used for the iPhone 5 and 5s but as we all know, it doesn't hold up well. To make matters worse, the iPhone 6 also has rounded or beveled edges which increase not only the difficulty of repair but also the likelihood of screen cracks to take place ...

New York City is considering using Touch ID to pay for packing tickets
The city of New York is considering new measures (PDF) that would allow drivers to pay their parking tickets with alternative payment methods like Apple Pay, PayPal, and Bitcoin, reportsMarketWatch. Currently, the city says it is collecting roughly $600 million in parking ticket revenue each year, as the region's Department of Finance is looking for a "convenient way for motorists to expeditiously pay their parking tickets via a smartphone or mobile device."
Apparently New York is interested in quicker payments on parking tickets and faster processing. Legally however users are proving their criminal involvement from a legal standpoint and tying it to their fingerprints. Who knows what other kind of implications this could lead to in the future.
