Apple Watch Amazes the entire World !

I’ve been waiting for the  past 2 years for Apple watch, finally it is released. I am amazed with the Apple watch design and features.

Apple-Watch-logo-main1.png

Few Things Everyone have to know about Apple Watch:
Here I will explain important things about Apple Watch.

Not Complicated:
I think it will be helpful or useful to few categorized people. We all have good experience with all Apple products. The Apple watch is a fashion statement. Apple watches come in 2 sizes: small size is 38mm and large size is 42mm. Different models that are available

  1. Aluminum Apple Watch Sport
  2. Stainless steel Apple Watch
  3. Gold Apple Watch Editions.

Not Water Resistant:
The main upset about Apple Watch is that it is not Water Proof. I thought the components inside the Apple Watch have been sealed to help them resist contact with water, so sweat, rain, washing your hands and similar activities aren’t a problem. The Apple Watch is not Water resistant so you can’t shower, swim, dive with it on your wrist.

Only Left Arm Perfect:
Why Apple didn’t think about this small thing? The main minor problem is that Apple Watch can be primarily used on the left Arm. Many people regardless of whether they’re right or left handed, wear watches on their left arm. If you prefer wearing your Apple Watch on your right Arm, there’ll be a way to rotate the display and switch the straps to accommodate you guys.

Secured by Skin Contact:
Many Apple lovers expected TouchID feature in Apple Watch, but there is no TouchID feature. Apple has come up with a new way to secure watch anyway. When you wear or put your Apple Watch on, you enter a code that authenticates it for things like Apple Pay. The main thing here is that when Apple Watch comes in contact with your skin, the remaining authentication is active &if the sensors in the bottom detect a break in contact, it automatically locks your watch. Again you have to enter your Lock code for unlocking Watch.

Battery Life:
In our real world every electronic device did everything what we need. The main problem is Battery Life. Every gadget lover is thinking to use the gadget with full brightness, internet, broadcasting and etc. That’s why the Apple Watch with retina display will need to be charged every night. Apple has included a magnetically aligned inductive charger which is very easy to connect.

About Accessibility:
The main attraction of Apple Watch is Taptic engine & Siri. The Apple Watch provides important accessibility options to people with visual impairments.

Continuity and Control:
The good news for all Apple and Gadget lovers is the Apple Watch comes with a version of Remote, the Application that lets you control an Apple TV or iTunes on your desktop. You’ll also be able to use it as a remote viewfinder for your iPhone’s camera. Just set your iPhone down, run for that group shot or solo stance, preview right on your watch and then tap to shoot or set a timer. Apple watch also comes with Continuity, the feature that lets you start something on one of your Apple devices and continue it on another.

Applications for Apple Watch:
Guys, Apple Watch will be able to pull actionable notifications for iOS 8 Applications on your iPhone and move them to you on your wrists. Apple Watch doesn’t have many applications yet. Developers will also be able to make widget-style glances to show important information from their Applications on the Apple Watch and eventually with WatchKit, developers will be able to make unique interfaces especially designed to bring some of their functionality to the smallest screen.

Apple March 2015 Special Event

Apple’s “Spring Forward” special event will take place on Monday, March 9, 2015 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco at 10am PT, 1pm ET.

While Apple hasn’t provided an agenda for the event, it’s hard not to imagine the Apple Watch will be front and center. Pricing for the Apple Watch and Apple Watch Editions, along with variances for the different size and band options, details on final hardware and software features, and much more remains to be discovered.

Rumors of a MacBook Air update keep circulating, but could just as easily keep this event focused on the Apple Watch. Therefore, two distinct items will take the order of the day; Apple New MacBook and The New Apple Watch

  1. The New MacBook

Monday’s Apple reveal of the new MacBook has some people shaking their heads. The MacBook Air is Apple’s smallest and lightest laptop. It comes in two sizes – 11 and 13 inches. The MacBook Air sports a 1.6 GHz dual core Intel Core i5 processor. The 11 inch model can work without recharging for up to nine hours at a stretch, while the 13 inch model can go an amazing 12 hours without needing to be plugged in.

Other features include Intel HD 6000 graphics, 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage capacity, along with 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, Thunderbolt 2 and two USB 3.0 ports. The 13 inch model also sports an SDXC card slot for easy photo and video transfer.

Despite the diminutive size and relatively low-speed CPU, the MacBook Air works lightning fast, thanks in part to its reliance on PCIe-based flash storage instead of a traditional hard drive. Indeed, the MacBook Air was the first Mac laptop to offer SSD storage.

  1. Apple Watch

As Apple announced yesterday, the Apple Watch will go up for pre-order on April 10, with the official release date set for April 24, 2015.

Speculations has it that Apple may be gearing up for a new reserve and pickup system for the Apple Watch in its retail stores. With the new system, customers would be able to customize a watch online before trying it on and completing the purchase in-store.

The Reserve and Pickup system for the Apple Watch will differ from the existing Personal Pickup system for other products, which allows customers to fully purchase items online before picking them up at Apple retail locations. The new system will allow potential Watch customers to reserve a desired case and band combination online, then try the specific Watch in-store before completing the purchase.

If this new reserve system is indeed implemented, the ability to customize and reserve a watch combination online before trying it on in-store could help streamline the purchasing process for customers.

The New WatchStand Cost

Griffin has announced WatchStand, a charging dock for the Apple Watch, more than six weeks ahead of the device’s launch.

The first in what Griffin says will be a line of products for the Apple Watch, WatchStand features an angled cradle that will securely hold the watch’s magnetic charger. The central post holds the charger’s cable, with excess cable wrapping around the post.

The base of the WatchStand features an angled lip that holds your phone at an angle, letting it rest against the post. Your iPhone will, of course, need its own charger. The stand will be available this summer for $29.99.

iPhone 6 Survival Guide – What Every iPhone 6 Owner Must Know!

The new iPhone 6 comes with all of the latest technology from Apple so it’s packed with tons of sparkling new features – which turns out to be quite difficult for new users to fully take advantage of. But don’t worry because in this article we’re going to show you all of the most essential tips and tricks that you can use right now to really start dominating your iPhone! Let’s get started!

So the first and probably most important tip is about charging your phone. If you haven’t heard about it, there’s actually a “hidden” technique that can reduce the charging time of your iPhone 6 by up to 50%! Sounds awesome? The secret here actually lies in your power supplier. A lot of people don’t know that the standard 1A power supplier which comes with your device by default is not the fastest way to charge it! The ultimate way to charge your iPhone 6 is actually with an iPad charger as it supplies 2.1 A power. This will basically charge your iPhone 6 Plus in 2 hours flat – which is MUCH faster that the standard wall connector. So if you have an iPad, or maybe even invest in an iPad charger, it will prove exceptionally useful!

Next step, you want to go to “Setting”, click on “General” and then scroll down to “Usage” and tap “Battery Usage” at the top. This will show you every App that’s taking up your battery and the percentage that it’s using. If you want to save your battery even more then there’s a pretty cool trick for you. Still in “Setting” and “General”, there’s a feature called “Background App Refresh” that will tell you every App that’s refreshed in the background and taking up more of your battery, you can go ahead and turn that off to use less power and keep your device charged longer.

There’s a pretty cool and brand new trick you can use on your iPhone 6 to make shopping online easier than ever! If you go into Safari and browse to any website that you can buy stuff with, you can actually scan your credit card now, which will automatically come up with a button. Just click “Scan Credit Card”, tap “OK” for a few times then it’ll pop up with a little rectangular box that will allow you to scan a credit card and will automatically input all the information you need, making it very easy to purchase products!

Next, if you go to “Messages” and hold the camera button, it will bring up a circle which you can use to take a video or picture instantly with your iPhone, and send it to your friends! The video you just recorded will actually expire in 2 minutes and you can modify that in your settings. Just click on “Messages” in “Settings”, scroll down to the bottom where it says “Expire” and there you can freely choose if you want the videos to last forever or just after 2 minutes! Remember that videos sent as attachments will not expire.

The last trick is actually very basic, but I bet a lot of people, whether they have been using iPhone for a long time or have just purchased one, don’t know about; and that’s the multitasking feature. So when you double tap your Home button you’ll see all these Apps that are using up your battery, and you can simply swipe up to get rid of them, therefore using less battery and keep your device charged longer!

So that’s it guys, all of the most essential tips you can apply right now to start using you iPhone more efficiently and get the most out of its new technology! There are actually a lot more “advanced” tips and tricks that you can use on your iPhone, which you can find pretty easily on our blog, but in case you are brand new to this awesome phone from Apple then these tricks alone should be more than enough for you to get started!
