The secret to better, faster iPhone battery replacement

The secret to better, faster iPhone battery replacement

iPhone Battery Replacement

Apple tried to keep it under wraps for a long time, but the news is out – you can replace your iPhone battery to keep your phone running in top condition for much longer.

But if you attempt to see a “genius” at your local Apple store, you will likely be out of luck. Reports of long waits for appointments, out of stock parts and spotty customer service are everywhere leaving frustrated iPhone users even more discouraged.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. We found the secrets to better, faster iPhone battery replacement.

* Price matching

If your iPhone is out of warranty, Apple will charge $29.99 to replace your battery for most models. If you need a new iPhone battery, don’t overpay! Find someone who will replace the battery and match Apple’s price.

* Warranties

Never have your iPhone battery replaced without having a warranty on the battery. Look for a 90-day warranty so you’re appropriately covered for a generous length of time.

* Convenience  

A visit to the Apple store often comes with multiple headaches – finding a place to park, endless waiting in line, battling crowds, out of stock parts, a long wait to get your phone back and more. And that’s if you can get an appointment in the first place!

3 Tips For Saving Your iPhone’s Battery Life

Every September when Apple releases their newest iPhone model, people line up to see how they have topped the previous version. An increasingly hot topic in recent years, is the battery life of Apple’s high-powered smartphones. While they always seem to make some improvements to the battery life, there hasn’t been a major breakthrough that iPhone users have been hoping for. The majority of updates seem to be aimed more towards how we charge the phones, and how long it takes. There have been rumors that Apple will be using new wireless charging technology with the new iPhone 8, 8+, and X. This would come as a welcomed improvement as last year they made the switch to one universal port on the phone, used for both headphones and charging. Nothing has hit the market yet as Apple is still unclear with the specifics. For now, let’s take a look at how you can give your battery life a boost.

New Uptime Video-Watching App from Google

Watch YouTube videos with your friends via Uptime, a new app from Google. Read the article below from to find out more.

Google's Uptime for YouTube

Google launches Uptime collaborative YouTube viewing app exclusively for iOS

By Mike Wuerthele

Google’s “Area 120” incubator project has developed Uptime —an iPhone app for watching YouTube videos collaboratively with other users of the app.

Users of the app will see other viewers icons progressing along the video’s progress bar. Users can follow other Uptime users to see what they’re watching, and share clips from the service from within the app.

The app also features live commentary by people watching the video, as well as the ability to like videos, and get daily video recommendations from friends and people you follow.

At present, the app is iOS-only, with no sign of an Android app.

The app itself is currently available on the iOS App Store, and is free, but requires an invite to use. According to TNW, code “PIZZA” can be used to garner an invitation for the service.

The Uptime app came out of Google’s incubator program, first launched formally in 2004.

“We encourage our employees, in addition to their regular projects, to spend 20% of their time working on what they think will most benefit Google,” Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin wrote in 2004, launching the program. “This empowers them to be more creative and innovative. Many of our significant advances have happened in this manner.”

The 20% rule turned into the Area 120 incubation program, which is now helmed by long-time Google executives Don Harrison and Bradley Horowitz. Other 20% projects in the past have included Gmail, and Google News.
