    Since release of iPhone 13* and iOS 15, more and more apps stopped supporting / upgrading iOS 12 or older. I have iPhone 6 and have been forced to delete apps or use browser (or upgrade the phone!). Apps provide better experience as browser always lag behind in performance. I hoped Apple would...

    iPhone 6s Front Camera Replacement

    Does anyone know what kind of cable and/or connector is used for a front camera of an iPhone 6s? Also, would there be a way to plug in a webcam to that connector? I'm looking to replace my front camera as it's broken, but curious if I can replace it with a front camera that is not OEM.

    iPhone iOS 13 - no iPhone 6 support, but iPad OS supports iPad Mini 4 when they have the same processor...

    I’m sure this is due to the fact that Apple have only just stopped selling the iPad Mini 4 this year, and it would be pretty bad for them to suddenly stop supporting it with software upgrades. But the iPhone 6 has the same A8 processor. And yet it won’t get an iOS 13 upgrade. I’m guessing...

    Horizontal lines on iPhone 6 screen

    Horizontal lines have appeared on my wife’s iPhone 6 screen (looks like a bad resolution video game from the 90s). Soft reset / hard reset does not fix the issue. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas how to fix it?
