Solutions to your iPhone 6 problems

iPhone 6 Solutions

We love the iPhone 6, its undoubtedly along with the 6S is the most user-friendly device made. It became one of the largest selling devices of 2015 thanks to it’s considerably bigger size and better features than its predecessors. The iPhone 6 does comes with a couple of minor flaws. In this post we’ll discuss them and give you solutions should you need them!

1. iPhone 6 Screen susceptible to breaking:
The design of the 6th generation iPhone is elegant and utterly beautiful. Its performance and usability is industry leading. We’ve talked briefly about this in an earlier post but the weak point is in the structure and rigidity of the device. Screen Fixed’s Repair Experts repair many iPhone 6 screens which often tend to come to us with a bent frame/chassis. The curved edge combined with soft aluminium provides little structure if the device is dropped. With reduced structure the iPhone 6 screens tend to break easily.iPhone 6 Problems

2. Hard to hold: Don’t get us wrong here, we’re into the all metal body and curved edges. However, it does make the device quite hard to hold. If you’re coming from an earlier generation iPhone then you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about! When you hold the device it literally feels like it’s going to slip out of your hand and onto the concrete. With a price tag of $1k – it’s not a nice feeling.

Solution: The obvious solution to this is a case. Unfortunately not everyone likes having a case – it takes away the beauty of Apples minimalist design and also makes the device chunky. Another alternative is getting a skin which is basically just a layer of removable plastic that sticks to your iPhone, barely adding any size or bulk to the phone but giving you that necessary grip. iPhone skins come in a wide variety of designs and colours, you can even create your own!

3. App issues: Many users have complained about certain applications lagging or not even opening at all. More often than not this happens due to bug’s within the application, if you don’t see any reviews that mention a bug, then it’s probably not the most up to date version. Updated iPhone applications always support the most recent iOS versions and include bug fixes and other performance improvements.  ( Check out Top 10 Free Apps that every iPhone needs )

Solution: There’s a few ways to do this: go into: Settings> General > Software Update. Or you can update your apps via iTunes. On your computer go to the iTunes store, you will see a list of your apps, then select update all. We recommend automating this process by turning on automatic updates in iTunes settings. If these solutions don’t work and the problem still persists, then you may want to take a look at a list of iOS versions that the app is compatible with.

4. Keyboard lag: A common problem with the latest iOs update is Keyboard lag. Many people have noticed a lag when typing with the iPhone 6 keyboard. If you are having the same problem, don’t worry there is a solution.

Solution: If you are facing keyboard lag on your iPhone 6, we recommend turning off “Documents and Data” in settings. You can do this by going to: Settings>iCloud>Documents and data. If everything seems normal after this then you can turn it back on and it shouldn’t cause the same problem. If it does persists, try restarting your iPhone. If it still doesn’t work, try resetting all settings by going to: General>Settings>Reset All Settings. The other thing you can do is make sure you’re up to date with the latest i0S as Apple normally fix’s these issues with a new update.

The next generation of iPhone is almost here

With the rising popularity of the currently available smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge and HTC’s One M8, Apple has taken it upon itself to try and outshine the competition in 2015.

Unlike the new iOS 9, the company is sticking to its habit of remaining covert about the new hardware. Still, there are several rumours surrounding the new release, and people are already guessing what the company has prepared for the iPhone 7 and/or iPhone 6S handset.

Our iPhone repair Brisbane team has done the research to provide all the current information about possibly the most anticipated smartphone of 2015 in one single source.

When Will the Apple iPhone 7 Be Released?

Based on Apple’s history with the iPhone 5S and 6, we don’t think the company will make any public announcement about the phone until this September. This strategic move worked in Apple’s favor, with Black Friday and Holiday shopping trends, so we expect the company will attempt to boost the new phone’s sales the same way.

The screen size is probably much more versatile than the phone’s build. There have already been rumours floating around about the company revealing multiple handsets, each one offered at different screen sizes.

While the previous iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were offered at 4.7 and 5.5-inch screens, Apple may release an upgraded iPhone 6C with a smaller, more compact 4-incher. If this rumour proves true, it would be a great option for people looking to pay a bit less for a smaller phone. A budget option, if you will.

The New iPhone 7 Specifications

Seeing as the iPhone 7 will be released with a new iOS and processor, it will probably provide much more power and efficiency to its users. Ironically, the company’s biggest competition, Samsung, is reportedly contracted to build most of the next gen iPhones processor.

This new A9 chip, which is what it will probably be called, is expected to be much smaller than its predecessor. This will allow Apple engineers to include more transistors to the hardware’s silicone surface

Taking a Look at the Camera and Design

Developer Hamza Sood was able to figure out Apple’s plans for the iPhone 7’s new camera through the new iOS code. Inside said code is front-facing camera flash support, which we haven’t yet seen in the past iPhone line-up.

Sood also found that FaceTime will be able to run at 1080p HD, which is a huge upgrade from the 720p definition found in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. This is obviously an attempt the attract today’s avid selfie takers who need a good quality front-facing camera.

The iPhone 6’s appearance was highly altered from the 5S, so Apple probably won’t change the 7’s design too drastically for the second year in a row.

Comparatively, it may be notable to point out that leading companies, Samsung and LG, have altered their new models quite a bit with curvy screens. Our Screen Fix Brisbane team, however, doesn’t think Apple will go this route with the iPhone 7, seeing as the company has had these sort of issues in the past.

Our iPhone screen repairs Brisbane office isn’t exactly sure what battery the new smartphone will employ, but we do know for sure that the iOS 9 supports a Low Power Mode for extended power.

In previous models, Apple hasn’t budged on improving its RAM (random-access memory), but there are rumours surrounding an increase of 2GB that will ship with the new gen iPhone.
