This Is What You Need To Know About iPhone 7’s Best Features

This Is What You Need To Know About iPhone 7’s Best Features

Androids might be looking like to rule the smartphone industry soon now and then but Apple somehow always manages to pull something amazing enough to stay on the top. This September, the world saw another masterpiece of a smartphone by Apple in the face of iPhone7. The competition of androids may have made Apple work so hard on this device that it turned out to be a total gem. The uniqueness of the phone is undeniable, and today we are going to highlight them in our 7 Best Features of the all new iPhone7.

It’s a phone… it’s a camera…It’s iPhone7!

iPhone 7 includes a 12-megapixel primary camera and this time with optical image stabilization. The previous builds of Apple, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6s Plus had a 12- megapixel camera too, but the optical stabilization was only provided in iPhone 6s Plus. If you are a regular Android user, and you believe that the camera of 12- megapixel is probably no big deal, then let us tell you that a 12-megapixel camera provided by Apple is a whole lot better than the 16-megapixels of various androids. The camera works pretty well in the low light too. If you still are looking for more, then iPhone 7 Plus comes with a dual camera setup, with wide angle lens.

Compatibility with MacBook Pro

With the new MacBook Pro, the USB Type-C Lightning Cable will be utilized for faster data transfer with iPhone 7. This cable will not only be used for data transfer, but for the charging and updating of the phone too. Apple may come up with more products to support the lightening port of their iPhone 7. As told earlier, Apple is already providing an extra adapter, to support headphones on the iPhone 7. Some trusted sources have even reported Apple hiring a virtual reality expert to enter the VR market.

You could even track down your lost device using iCloud on your MacBook Pro. But, there are many iCloud Lock Removal guides on the internet, that makes it harder for you to find the phone, if it is purposely stolen.

Water Resistance

iPhone 7 comes with its water-resistant features. With an iP67 rating, the users of this phone can be worry free from rains or occasional spills. Various tests on the phone have been done and are rated to be safe in 1-meter water for about 30 minutes. Even the camera works fine underwater, and you can be assured of the proper functioning of the phone after water accidents with it.

Design

If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. That’s what Apple stuck with this time when it came to designing. Apart from the missing audio port, the whole design is similar to its previous versions which make Apple unique again. It often happens when the smartphones are given design changes which are uncalled for, and Apple decided not to bring the forced changes that weren’t needed. It’s nice to see, for a change, where a design feature isn’t added just for the sake of adding one. The only difference is that iPhone 7 has a little smaller size compared to iPhone 6.

The Battery Life

iPhone is undoubtedly the iPhone with best battery life until now. iPhone 7 has a 1960 mAh battery and iPhone 7 Plus has 2900 mAh battery. It is much better than the previous iPhone 6, with a battery life of 1715 mAh. With a normal usage, the can easily last a whole day without any need to charge.

3GB of RAM

iPhones never really had a problem when it came to multitasking. The phones provided by Apple hardly seem to have any lag or getting a hang. With iPhone7 having 3 GB RAM the lag or hang issues, which if were there, would almost be eliminated. Comparing to the 1GB RAM of the iPhone 6, this phone has more RAM, and it is sure to perform better when it would come to run applications. So, you can open various apps without having a second thought of any one of them getting crashed.

ByeJack!

With iPhone 7, Apple might have officially bid a goodbye to the 3.5mm audio jack. iPhone7 offers a lightning port for charging and data transfer in that place. In the box, Apple will provide an adapter that can be used in the lightning port, and you can use your regular headphones in that. It might be an issue when you want to charge and listen to music at the same time, which isn’t actually recommended for a better battery backup. Wireless earphones and Bluetooth headsets won’t be a problem, though. It might be a good time to consider Apple AirPods too.

So, this was our list of 7 Best Features of the all new iPhone7. The phone is new, and the end of the year is soon. It won’t be a bad idea to get your hands on this phone.

To Automate or not to Automate Your Personal Productivity System

To Automate or not to Automate Your Personal Productivity System

We are all about doing things faster and better around here at Lifehack. And part of doing things faster and better is having a solid personal productivity system that you use on a daily basis.

This system can be just about anything that helps you get through your mountain of projects or tasks, and helps you get closer to your goals in life. Whether it’s paper or pixels, it doesn’t really matter. But, since you are reading Lifehack I have to assume that pixels and technological devices are an important part of your workflow.

“Personal Productivity System” defined

A personal productivity system (at least the definition that this article will use) is a set of workflows and tools that allow an individual to optimally get their work done.

Workflows can be how you import and handle your photos from your camera, how you write and create blog posts, how you deploy compiled code to a server, etc.

Tools are the things like planners, todo managers, calendars, development environments, applications, etc.

When automation is bad

You may be thinking that the more that we automate our systems, the more we will get done. This is mostly the case, but there is one very big “gotcha” when it comes to automation of anything.

Automation is a bad thing for your personal productivity system when you don’t inherently understand the process of something.

Let’s take paying your bills for example. This may seem very obvious, but if you can’t stick to a monthly budget and have trouble finding the money to make payments on time, then automating your bill payment every month is completely useless and can be dangerous for your personal finances.

Another example is using a productivity tool to “tell you” what tasks are important and what to do next. If you haven’t taken a step back and figured out just how your productivity systems should work together, this type of automation will likely keep you from getting things done.

You can only automate something in your personal productivity system that have managed for a while. If you try to automate things that aren’t managed well already, you will probably feel a bit out of control and have a greater sense of overwhelm.

Another thing to remember is that some things should always be done by yourself, like responding to important emails and communicating with others. Automating these things can show your coworkers and colleagues that you don’t care enough to communicate yourself.

When automation is good

On the other hand, automation is a great thing for your personal productivity system when you understand the process of something and can then automatically get the steps done. When you know how to manage something effectively and understand the step-by-step process of a portion of your system, it’s probably a great time to automate it.

I have several workflows that I have introduced in the last year that takes some of the “mindless” work from me so I can be more creative and not have to worry about the details of something.

On my Mac I use a combination of Automator workflows, TextExpander snippets, and now Keyboard Maestro shortcuts to do things like automatically touch-up photos imported from my iPhone 4S or open all the apps and websites needed for a weekly meeting to the forefront of my desktop by typing a few keys. Once you open yourself up to automating a few of your processes, you start to see other pieces of your system that can benefit from automation.

Once again; none of this works unless you understand your processes and know what tools you can use to get them done automatically.

The three steps to determine if something is “ripe” for automation

If your workflow passes these three steps, then automate away, baby:

Advertising

  1. You can do this process in your sleep and it doesn’t require your full, if any form of attention. It can (and has been) managed in some form prior to automating it.
  2. The process is time consuming.
  3. The process doesn’t require “human finesse” (ie. communicating and responding to something personally)

Automating your personal productivity systems can be a great for you in the long run if you are careful and mindful of what you are doing. You first need to understand the processes that you are trying to automate before automating them though. Don’t get stuck in thinking that anything and everything should be automated in your life, because it probably shouldn’t.

Pick and choose these processes wisely and you’ll find the ones that take up most of your time to be the best ones to automate. What have you automated in your personal productivity system?
