    Spots in portrait mode

    iPhone Wifi Issues

    This is going to sound weird - I have an XS Max and have had wifi issues since day one. 50% of the time, my phone lags on wifi. Gets much slower than LTE, despite having a fast 300mbps internet. The weird thing is - If I pull down the Control Center, it immediately speeds up. I can literally...

    iPhone Full Screen Protector with no case?

    Hi, so I dont like cases and dont use them. I basically never drop my phone, unless its gets knocked out of my hand or I give it to someone else. Never cracked a phone. However, I do hate those little micro-scratches that appear after a few months when the oleophobic coating has rubbed off. So...

    iPhone 11 iPhone XS Max?

    Any ideas what will happen to the old stock of iPhone XS Max in Apple Stores? They have been scrapped from the iPhone line-up and no longer available online.

So, I have an Apple watch series 3 and an iPhone 6 and I can leave the phone in my room, go down a flight of stairs and well into my garden and I still get notifications and calls. On the other hand, my girlfriend has a...

    Is there a better Qi charging pad than the Belkin that might work better I get the beep, and even see the light change, and the phone isn't charged.

    Hi everyone. This week I decided to change my old screen protector. Before installing the new one, I wiped the screen with the alcohol wipes that come with these screen protectors. I now discovered that it is not recommended to do so, since the alcohol can damage the oleophobic coating. I...

    iPhone XS Max This is why the new iPhones are failing

    $1,535.94 That's approximately how much you'll fork over for the high-capacity XS Max, a phone that doesn't perform much better than your current model. The bottom line is that the price is too high.

    Hi guys, I've got this 256GB phone 3 weeks ago. I'm happy because I came from Mi8 (a good Android smartphone) and I was expected for great improvements and performance. Well, I was wrong. I've already got a XS Max for my mother in the past months, and her device is really good, the touch is...
