Oh how time flies. Today marks a momentous anniversary for Apple and its iPhone lineup, and a considerable shift in an entire industry.
Two years ago Apple unveiled its radical new look for its iOS mobile operating system with the release of iOS 7. Not surprisingly, reactions were mixed. Though almost everyone seems to have got used to it, we still get an email or a comment from users once in a while who ask us if there is a way to downgrade to iOS 6.
Recently, Apple opened up its Reuse and Recycle program to include Android smartphones, to make it easier than ever before to get people to switch to the iPhone.
When iOS 8 was released, users of older devices such as iPhone 4s and iPad 2 had complained about performance problems.
There have been concerns raised about the performance lag and other usability issues on older devices like the iPhone 4s on iOS 8, forcing some to downgrade back to iOS 7.1.2. So what’s it like to upgrade from iOS 7.1.2 to the latest iOS 8.0.2 software update?
On Wednesday, September 17, Apple will release iOS unto the world (possibly the biggest release to date). With it, a ton of new features will find their way out into the public domain, and a wide range of devices will be able to get the newest software underneath their owner’s fingertips. The iPhone 4S included.
One of the biggest gripes about Apple’s iPhone has been its battery life. So it didn’t come as a surprise to find that battery life was one of the top features that readers were most excited about.
