Apple iOS 9.0.2 has received a new update, which has been rolled out to fix bugs and resolve issues of iCloud Back Up and iMessage activation. It will also fix issues of incorrect rotation of screen while receiving messages.
We updated the iPhone 6 soon after getting the update and saw many improvements on. No one can bypass the locked screen anymore, which was a major issue for many iPhone users. The security patch in the new update has fixed safety issues so your data, contacts, photos are completely secure.
There were complaints regarding the settings menu as well. We spoke to one of the users who told us that he was unable to get into the settings of phones. “I was not able to make any changes. With the new update, the issue has been fixed and I hope it stay like this,” he says.
iCloud backup concerns have also been taken care of. “Oh, yes what a relief. There were times when the back-up would automatically stop if I started the manual back-up. I backed up my phone immediately after getting the update,” says Sunny Aggarwal.
The iMessage activation has also been fixed. Apparently, users we spoke to did not face any problems with iMessage but from Apple’s end it has been fixed.

Even as the tech market is flooded with new generation smartphones, there are always some that stand out. Two phones that stand out are the recently-launched Samsung S6 Edge+ and the iPhone 6. Its Samsung S6 Edge+ vs iPhone 6.
The fight of the mighty
After the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, the company has now launched the Samsung S6 Edge+. A quick comparison to the Apple iPhone 6 suggests that Samsung has raised the bar of creativity.
To start with, the design of the Samsung S6 Edge+ will give competition to iPhone 6 because it is sleeker at 6.9mm with rounded edges. The metal body adds to the look of the phone, apart from the glass panels at the front and back. On the contrary, the iPhone 6 retains its old look.
Screen and capacity
While the iPhone 6 has a screen of 4.7 inches with IPS LCD, the S6 Edge+ has a 5.7-inch Super-AMOLED screen.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ has a 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, while the iPhone 6 is has a 1GB RAM with DDR3.
The Edge+ has a 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front facing camera, while the iPhone 6 has an 8MP primary camera and 1.2MP secondary camera. It’s clear who the winner is there.
Leaked images and rumors related to the Apple iPhone 7 do not seem to fade away. Recently, it has been reported that the new phone will not move away drastically from the look of the iPhone 6. However, the images designed by Tomislav Rastovac and Ivo Maric seem contrary.
Concept iPhone 7 at a Glance
If their rendering of the iPhone 7 is to be believed, it will be a blend of the iPhone 6, iPhone 5 and iPhone 4 with glass panel at the front as well as back. Apart from glass panel, the phone is also designed to have flat edges.
The dream phone is not just about the look but is expected to feature A10 processor, Quad HD Retina display and 16MP camera along with 2.5D sapphire glass.
If the phone will come with wireless transfer and wireless charging, as the concept phone suggests, it will attract significant attention from new buyers.
With the fall coming closer, many are now curious to know whether the company will launch the iPhone 7 or content people with the iPhone 6S, which has not seen the daylight either.
Here’s presenting yet another leak on the Lumia 940 XL, the upcoming Microsoft flagship from WMPowerUser, a Windows site of repute. The source here is based somewhere in Netherlands that reveals use of polycarbonate for its exterior. However, fans need to prepare for a hefty price tag that could be higher than even the Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6.
Weighing The Prices
Apple iPhone 6 comes for $699 for while the Samsung Galaxy S6 is up for sale at $599. Going by their sturdy metal look, we think that the Lumia 940 XL will be high priced justifiably. As for the Lumia 940, we are not sure if it will come metal clad but from what WMPowerUser reveals we know that the Lumia 940 comes in a 5.2-incher HD display, backed by 1,920 x 1,080-pixel resolution.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor will power it to life while 3 GB RAM will ensure smooth functionality for the new Lumia 940 series on the block. Add to this 32 GB of built-in storage that is expandable via microSD card support and we are already excited about laying hands on the new Microsoft babies.
Specs For The Lumia 940s
Furthermore, talks of 20 MP main camera with triple LED flash and the selfie cam of 5 MP are doing rounds for the Lumia 940. The 940 XL version has the same features except a bigger screen size of 5.7 inches and resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. Powering the Lumia 940 XL to life will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC processor.
Some insight into the iPhone 6S’s dimensions has come our way from Engadget Japan that claims the iPhone 6S may have about 7.1mm depth. This means that the upcoming Apple flagship could be about 0.2mm thicker than what the iPhone 6 is. In terms of depth, it touches the same mark as the iPhone 6 Plus.
More Details On The Form Factor
While Engadget Japan did not reveal where it has got the information from, we did read that the leak comes from a trustworthy source. Perhaps it could be an insider connected to the manufacturing units for the iPhone 6S.
The hike up in terms of depth for the upcoming iPhone 6S might be justified if it is to see presence of Force Touch technology right under its screen. Rumors have been pointing to such an addition for a long time. Apple has patented this technology that debuted on the Apple Watch. Force Touch could give touch and interactions on the iPhone 6S all new meaning.
One piece of good news here is even if the 6S is slightly thick, you may still be able to fit it in your iPhone 6 case. Last heard, the screen size is set to be 4.7 inches just as we saw on iPhone 6.
9to5 Mac has recently published the leaked images of iPhone 6S that clearly suggest that iPhone 6S will be launching in the fourth quarter of 2015, which could mean that iPhone 7 will see the light of the day in the mid of 2016. Let’s find out the factors of this delay.
Branding issues with iPhone 7
Earlier, it was also speculated that there were some branding issues with the next generation iPhone, most of which was concentrated on a single topic, whether or not Apple will release iPhone 7 in 2015 itself.
But the leaked images have made it somewhat clear the company is currently focusing on the updated version of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. If speculations are to be believed then the iPhone 6S is expected to launch in September just like the other apple devices.
The recent success of iPhone 6 twins is also a major factor behind the postponed release of iPhone 7. Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 plus have registered staggering sales figure since their launch putting up Apple in a very strong financial position.
It was because of the recent iPhone that Apple was able to land itself into the most successful and trusted consumer electronics brand in the world. Apple may not be willing to take the risk by launching iPhone 7 when both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 have been doing exceedingly well in the market despite stiff competition from Samsung and Chinese vendors, but it looks like we will see the iPhone 7 next year for sure.
Following launch of the Apple flagships the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, we almost forgot the 4 incher wares the iPhone predecessors used to be. Of course, loyalists can still purchase the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S from the Apple website but a latest rumor says that a fresh iPhone is set to release in 4-inches of screen size this year, according to report from China.
If this is true, then the chance to go back to a latest iPhone at a smaller bill is on cards for budget buyers. Seems like the Cupertino giant has sealed a deal with AU Optronics for mass production of 4 incher screens. Then again, company sources point to a smaller model next year. If at all we get hands on a 4 incher iPhone then it will probably be christened the iPhone 6C.
Such buzz contracts the stance Apple took early this year with a statement that no user should anticipate a new 4 inch model this year.
While this may just be a ploy against hackers and leakers online so that the details of the actual iPhones for this year are keep under wraps until official announcements. Watch this space for more news.… Read the rest
