iOS 10 is finally performing on stage and what people are liking the most about it now is its increased Smartness, letting you know where you’ve parked your car via the Maps app present in it. When you are parking your car anywhere except your home, your iPhone will automatically remember the location and you will be notified that Maps app has dropped a pin where you parked your car.


Tapping on that notification will give you a bit more access to this feature by letting you see the live make of your parked car location and gives you the ability to even take a photograph of that place fir the sake of memorizing that location. If you are still not sure you can remember it, adding a text note is also an option. If you think your Maps app took you to the wrong place you can use Edit Location feature too.

Turning parked car notification feature on or off is not a big deal. For that you just have to go to the “Settings app” and then “Maps” section.
Whole Maps app in iOS 10 has been redesigned and introduced with such moves that takes less taps to do things. Now this app is the real deal when we talk about its user friendly nature and the button placements gives you real ease of use. The residents of this globe especially of U. S are advised to switch towards Maps app which can benefit you more than Google Maps.

Although Google Maps is the one with more diverse map information if we talk about the whole world but Maps app for iOS has the features enough to make citizens of U.S and other countries where Maps has enough info databases go for it. Neither was Google Maps a one hit wonder and nor is Maps app going to be so. With more time and advancement in technology working together side by side Maps is not too far behind from being the best.

The release of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus hasn’t went too far behind the history but due to the 10th anniversary of iPhone in 2017, iPhone 8 is already making its name in headlines even though it will be released about a year from now. Apple is all set to introduce some magnificent features in this upcoming installment and make their 10th anniversary a huge success, as per the rumors.

iphone 8 rumouriPhone 8 Specification Rumours


IPhone 8 according to rumors is expected be radically redesigned, introduction of edge to edge display and elimination of top and bottom bezels where we see a home button, front camera and fingerprint ID is supposed to take place. All these controls and features that Apple is reported to be eliminating will not actually be eliminated instead these will be incorporated within the display of iPhone 8. Jony Ive has a dream to put forth an iPhone that looks like a glass sheet and 2017 is the year in which this dream is highly expected to come true.
The rumor mill also suggests that iPhone 8 will most likely be housing a 5.5inch or bigger flexible OLED display replacing LCD, which will allow apple to introduce a much thinner iPhone with better contrast ratio and true colors. However the rumors about the curved edges on both sides of iPhone 8 aren’t confirmed yet. Apple is also rumored to be switching back to glass body which we saw in iPhone 4 and then came the era of Aluminum bodies for 5, 5s, 6, 6s, and SE but hey, now the glass is back and it will be wrapped around in an aluminum or stainless steel frame.

iphone 8 concept
Inside iPhone 8 will be a 10 nanometer A11 chip which is supposed to be much efficient as well as faster. We could also be seeing some exciting features like long range wireless charging, biometric additions like iris or facial scanning .and what not. Apple will reportedly be introducing a dual curve OLED iPhone 8 as a premium Smartphone and will be sold alongside with the 4.7inch and 5.5inch regular ones which wont be housing any curves.
iPhone 8 is more than a dozen months away from us yet so we will definitely be learning more about it in due course of time, lets wait a little longer for “cut the cake” part.
“Is the name of iPhone 8 really iPhone 8? Who knows it yet! No we don’t. But till the official announcement let its name be iPhone 8 which is the mist likely name and rumored as well”.

Although it is a transparent fact but a beam of light is needed to be thrown on the Apple’s latest concept of building latest featured Smartphones. Every iPhone buyer has to buy atleast one or a few accessories every time a new iPhone is launched whether it is a tempered glass protector, portable charger and what not. Now the introduction of iPhone 7 without 3.5mm headphone jack has made it strictly an accessory makers delight. We are sure that there no tech giant in the world who possesses all the accessories compatible with iPhone 7, some purchase is necessarily needed.

iPhone 6S 3D touch

New iphones are Accessory makers delight

No matter Apple is shipping iPhone 7 with a 3.5mm dongle and a lightning ear pod but still a lot is missing. It is a big feast for third party accessory makers to saturate the market with multitude of new accessories for iPhone7. Every wired ear bud user is facing problems with the Apple’s transition. Phil Schiller is the marketing chief of Apple Inc. who addressed the problems faced by the people and stated “We do understand that this might be a difficult transition for some people who love their wired headphones, “But the transition is inevitable. You’ve got to do it at some point.”. Although its true to some extent but it is not enough to neglect the fact that Apple is lately becoming a major business runner of accessory makers.

Another noticeable fact that justifies our statement is that Apple although made iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus of the same size as former installments but the camera changes in both the devices have been placed there and now all the buyers will have to buy new covers and cases in order to protect their iPhone’s. Third party manufacturers have already started the capitalization and a new Belkin accessory has been launched which allows you to play music using your wired headsets as well as lets you charge iPhone7 in your own way. It will cost $40 and will be available in market from October.

Likewise Anker is also working on designing an iPhone 7 / 7 Plus compatible lightning earphones which will be up to sale on shelf along with their range of Bluetooth wireless headphones. This company sells most of its products on Amazon and is more renowned in designing of charging related accessories. Example being latest five port wall plug which supports almost every Apple device.

Apple has always been Accessory makers delight but it wasn’t much visible to the fan base till now until it was unveiled publically. Atleast now we all know why Apple keeps playing with the designing of iPhones more frequently by bringing changes to charging ports, camera positions and now it was turn for headset jack to be replaced. Anker, Belkin, and Mophie are some renowned accessory brand names which will be gaining more customer base now with the launch of iPhone 7. In fact its all about the smart business nowadays so iPhone 7 buyers better keep their pockets deep.
