It looks like all the problems with iPhone 6 battery life are in the past. A lot of users with different Apple smartphone models wish their battery life to last longer than a day. Some users get issues when their battery doesn’t last even for 24 hours. Complaints about the ‘fruit’ battery were always a big issue.
Would you like to learn how to extend iPhone 6 battery life and make it last for a week? One British company developed a special battery that can make iPhone serve the whole week in between charges. This is the reality and the company Intelligent Energy might help Apple to boost battery life and move the famous ‘fruit’ technology forward.
Customers will absolutely be happy if their iOS handset running iOS 8.4.1, upcoming iOS 9 or earlier firmware version lasts for a week long. Right now this sounds more like a rumor or secret wish of millions of consumers yet such a hydrogen battery exists as prototype.
The firm developed their own iPhone 6 prototype that does remind of a current-generation iPhone 6. It has some minor differences with the original smartphone and one huge difference – this prototype lasts 7 days on one charge which is surely impossible on the original iPhone 6 version created by Apple.
The new technology is a combination of oxygen and hydrogen. This is how it can create electricity. The iPhone built by Intelligent Energy has the fuel cell system in it. It’s not known how much such battery system could cost. The firm promises cheap week-long lasting iPhone 6 batteries but the exact price isn’t named.
Does the company work with Apple and will it bring its innovation to the future ‘fruit’ handsets? We don’t know anything for sure. Let’s wait and see how the iPhone generation would change with year.

When you compare Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6 one thing you will pay attention to is the smartphones’ cameras shootout. How good is iPhone 6 camera [take a look at iPhone 6 Plus pros and cons as well]? Is it better than the competitor’s or not? Let’s take a look at some photographs and compare the two models based on how their cameras perform.
The iPhone has the 8MP sensor and its camera sensors do not offer incredible megapixels. Still Apple is somehow managing to improve its performance allowing customers to carry their smartphone in their pocket and use it for multiple purposing including photos.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 has the 16MP camera and it is much better than the one used on the ‘fruit’ handset. When you compare Apple iPhone to Samsung smartphones you will notice tons of differences, but each gadget will find its customer in the end.

Users who have heard about brute force iPhone passcode bypass tools might like to protect their smartphone just in case. Since most such tools are able to figure out your passwords if you are using a simple 4-digit option, you should set up a complex passcode on iPhone 6, 6 Plus or any other smartphone model to not allow any brute force password attack on your device.
Touch ID does protect your iDevice. Still there is a big number of small boxes such as IP box or Black box or similar devices [there is even a software program for Mac that can do the same thing] that use brute force to get full access to your locked iOS smartphone without losing any of your personal information.
You can follow our step-by-step guide to create and set up iPhone complex passcode and protect yourself even more.
How to Set Complex Password on iPhone [Instruction]
Step 1. A strong password will improve the protection of your iDevice from possible intrusions. Go to Settings on your smartphone to begin with.
Step 2. Find the Touch ID & Passcode menu and access it.
Step 3. Users who have earlier created a simple 4-digit password should enter it as they will be asked to do so right now.
Step 4. You should find Simple Passcode option by scrolling down. Disable it. Enter your 4-digit password once again to turn off this feature.
Step 5. Your iDevice will now ask you to create a new passcode. You will see all the special characters, numbers and letters this time. Create a complicated strong password and remember it. It is important to keep your new passcode in mind.
Step 6. Click on Next.
Step 7. You should once again enter your new passcode that is long and complex.
Step 8. Press on Done.
Remember that even a strong passcode might be bypassed, but it is way more difficult for hackers to crack it than a simple four-digit one.
While Christmas is long over, iPhone 6 sales record hasn’t stopped. Experts predict high sales for this popular iOS 8 smartphone in the second fiscal quarter in 2015. The report comes from Asian analysts who believe that Apple gets big revenue thanks to its iDevice’s popularity across the world.
Apple sold over 43 million smartphones in Q2 2014. This number is predicted to increase by 24 percent. As Barclays and Morgan Stanley share in their iPhone 6 sales forecast, the sales might reach 54 million units in the second quarter of 2015. Other analysts, for example, UBS, report even higher numbers forecasting 58 million phones sales.
March iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales are believed to be strong. The high demand for these two models is still experienced as more customers wish to purchase the iOS smartphone. This time the U.S. sales [Apple set a record by selling over 74 million of iDevice smartphones in Q1 2015 which resulted in over $74 billion in the company’s revenue] are overtaken by iOS smartphone sales in China. This country brought over $16 billion in revenue and this number is believed to increase in the second quarter, as analysts think.
According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the company is planning to open 40 stores in China by the middle of 2016 while it already has 21 running.
The Cupertino-based giant hasn’t announced the date when it is planning to report its earnings in Q2 2015 yet.
It does look like Android iOS support will be included in the Android Wear [do you know how many Americans are eager to buy Apple wearable?]. The confirmation of this fact was discovered in the Android code that is related to Apple mobile firmware. It is still unclear when such support can come but it has to become available sooner or later.
Can I install iOS 8 on Android Wear? You cannot at the moment, but you might be able to use Wear with iPhone in the future. Google is planning to bring its app to iOS platform, so if you wish Android Wear iOS support to become real soon you can cross your fingers and wait till the company completes the development and coding and officially releases it.
If iOS related code is found by experts, it can only mean that Google is working on the big update that involves all iPhone and maybe iPad users as well, specifically those who know what Android Wear is and wants it to work with ‘fruit’ smartphones and tablets.
Apple and Google compete in different spheres. When the Cupertino-based giant announced Apple Watch release for the end of April, Google reported about its Android Wear-based smartwatch that could also work with the iPhone 6 just like native Apple’s product.
When Apple Pay became popular, Google announced Android Pay service and a lot of users also heard of Samsung Pay coming out.
What do you think about these rivals and how they are working in the very same directions?
With the high demand for both iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 customers still wonder when the 4.7-inch iPhone screenshots appear online [so far we’ve only heard about some of the possible iPhone 6S specs]. Here come images that demonstrate the 3D renders of the imaginative products for the Apple line of future smartphones.
Designers work hard creating the gadgets of their dreams. Apple won’t probably change its new iPhone 6c that much, though the company is believed to work on either iPhone 6S or iPhone 7, according to different experts. This doesn’t upset 3D Future which shares its views on the iPhone 6c.
The next iPhone render images reminds of the colorful iPhone 5c which was a ‘cheaper’ version of the iPhone 5S. It has a plastic back and also colorful and bright. These iPhone 6c rumors [or let’s say, 3D imaginative renders] show a mash-up between that 5c model and current 6 device, but the model seems to have a 4.7-inch screen.
Don’t mistake these images for the real iPhone we’ll see later in 2015. These are just renders and imagination of another group of designers. The specs or options aren’t real, though it’s still cool to look at what could have been a new Apple smartphone.
What do you think about the new iPhone 6c concept?
