Fixes for the Three Biggest iOS7 Upgrade Issues

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Oct 7, 2013 3:58:00 PM

Every time a new iOS update is released, there always seems to be fallout a few days after it takes place. The last major release which was iOS6 caused severe battery drain. The biggest issue with iOS7 seems to be lack of support for 3rd party accessories. There are several other features that iProduct users have found to be less than favorable.

iOS 6.1.2 Software Update. Batteries Rejoice!

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Feb 20, 2013 1:51:00 PM

Apple is finally rectifying the whole battery issue that was a result of iOS 6. When iOS 6 came out, everyone wanted to get a piece of it. Apple Maps were supposed to be as great as Google Maps and there were all kinds of enhancements like turn by turn directions that made the upgrade so compelling that I personally stopped everything the minute my phone was ready for it. It took about an hour and a half because the rest of the world was probably downloading it too. That being the case, the rest of the world experienced what I did. Horrible battery drain.

Is this the Year of BlackBerry?

Why We Should Give BlackBerry a Chance

Now, they might not have had the best reputation for the past few years, but I believe BlackBerry has a chance for a huge comeback. With all the new technology smartphones have now, I think it’s time we give BlackBerry a fair chance. With the new BlackBerry models slated to release around mid March, who knows, they might come to surprise you. Considering they were the tech titans of the early 2000’s I feel like we at least owe them the benefit of the doubt. Here are some reasons why:

Samsung Galaxy Note II Update

Samsung Galaxy Note II Update or shall I call it a restart?


Imagine my surprise when I woke up to a software upgrade this morning that I wasn't even waiting for.
If you have a Note II, before you go getting all amped up. it was just a security patch.

Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a new software update, SW Version
Baseband version: I605VRALL4 Build Number: JRO03C.I605VRALL4, for
your Samsung Galaxy Note II.
Device Enhancement
+ Android Security Patch added for additional security.

That's it! I don't know what they secured but it takes all of about 1 minute, then it restarts so you won't be inconvenienced for more that the time it takes to brush your teeth. That's what I was doing while it was restarting. Because it was so fast, I knew there wasn't going to be much to write home about but I just thought I'd fill you in on the deets.
