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.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
