Though there is no additional cost to enable Wi-Fi Calling on devices, the calls and messages sent using this feature are billed the same as if they were made over Telus’ cellular network (minutes used to make local and nationwide calls are deducted from the customer’s monthly voice allowance and any overage will be rated according to the rate plan). Standard long distance charges apply when using Wi-Fi Calling. Wi-Fi Calling will only work within Canada at this time.   What you will need An Apple iPhone 6 or newer device (includes iPhone SE) with iOS 10.2 or newer installed. An active TELUS Wireless Postpaid rate plan with LTE SIM card. A Wi-Fi network allowing Voice over IP (VOIP) calling.

Apple’s iPhone 7 Screen Kicks A** See what the Experts Say


Apple’s iPhone 7 Screen Kicks A** See what the Experts Say With the recent launch of the iPhone 7 on Friday September 16th comes a barrage of tests.  Apple has done it again see what the experts are saying.  We start with an article from Appleinsider’s By Mike Wuerthele below: No need for 4K display on Apple’s iPhone 7 because of screen quality, expert claims Apple’s Wide Color display on the iPhone 7 is the iPhone’s best yet, with a record high contrast ratio and record low reflectance according to a recent third party analysis, and the quality of the screen may cast doubt on rumors of a shift to OLED displays. DisplayMate has examined the displays on the iPhone 7 family, and has overall found them to be best in class. Besides just the contrast ratio and low reflectance, the company found the peak brightness in high ambient light situations to slightly exceed Apple’s claims at 705 nits. The analysts also discovered that the iPhone 7 has a screen reflectance of 4.4 percent, the lowest that the company has ever recorded in a mobile device. The overall record low is 1.7 percent on the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Color accuracy, including both the sRGB and DCI-P3 Wide Color were examined. DisplayMate calls the iPhone 7 screen overall the “most color accurate display that we have ever measured.” “The iPhone 7 excels due to its record absolute color accuracy, which is visually indistinguishable from perfect,” says DisplayMate, “and is very likely considerably better than any mobile display, monitor, TV or UHD TV that you have.” As a result of the display improvements in the iPhone 7, DisplayMate claims that the screen doesn’t need the 4K resolution because of sharpness, will perfectly replicate any video content the user wishes to throw at it, and will force other manufacturers to “play catch-up fast” or be left behind in the marketplace. Well there you go.  Read the rest of the article here: Then we found another great article talking about Apple’s Iphone 7 screen.  Written by Joe Rossignol over at MacRumors below:   iPhone 7’s ‘Best LCD Display Ever’ Marks ‘Major Upgrade Over iPhone 6’ DisplayMate Technologies has declared iPhone 7has the “best LCD display” it has ever tested, calling it “truly impressive” and a “major upgrade” over the iPhone 6 based on a series of advanced viewing tests and measurements. iPhone 7 achieved the highest color accuracy, peak brightness, and contrast rating in bright light of any smartphone display, the highest contrast ratio of any IPS LCD display, and the lowest screen reflectance of any smartphone display. Apple’s latest flagship smartphone also has image contrast and intensity described as “visually indistinguishable from perfect,” and the smallest color variation when viewing the screen at an angle of any smartphone display. Color Accuracy and Power Efficiency iPhone 7 has two color gamuts, including a new 26% larger DCI-P3 Wide Color Gamut, as found in 4K TVs, and a traditional, smaller sRGB / Rec.709 gamut.

How much is Apple loved?


How much is Apple loved? Every year consumer line up in long lines so yhey can be the first to get the latest iPhone.  This year is no different.  For the last couple days people have assumed their position to yet again be the first.  No other Brand that I know of brings out this kind of hype year in year out.  It wasn’t hard to find any sign that portrayed this regular fanaticism over Apple products on the web.  Below I post just a few of the stories which show how loved this International brand really is.  The first one says it all written by KRIS CARLON over ay Android Authority: “I love Apple no matter what” – this is how strong Apple’s brand loyalty is Imagine being so enamored with a brand that you’d be willing to spend a couple of days camping out in the street just for the opportunity to be among the first to pay full price for a new phone. Then, imagine how you’d feel when, around 12 hours before you should be walking through the doors of the store, you get told that the phone you want – in this case theiPhone 7 Plus – isn’t even available. What would your response be? SEE ALSO: WHY IS APPLE STILL ABLE TO COMMAND SUCH HIGH PRICES FOR ITS IPHONES?321 For Android fans, this level of brand loyalty might be a little hard to imagine, considering how fickle and ‘quick to ditch’ we can be. While our loyalty to Android itself might remain unchecked, the vast majority of us are perfectly content to throw an OEM under the bus for the slightest misdemeanor. For example, think about how much flak OnePlus received for their invite system; as bad as that was, at least it didn’t require any inner-city camping. Just take a cursory glance at Reddit, manufacturer support pages or tech forums and you’ll see the level of vitriol directed at one OEM or another for failing to meet our expectations in some way. Battery life not up to par? The whole software development team should be fired. Buggy camera app? Never buying another phone from this manufacturer. Android update taking too long? Get your pitchforks and flaming torches boys…. Android users are spoilt for choice. If Sony lets us down, we’ve got Samsung. If Sammy pushes things too far, we can switch to HTC. If HTC drops the ball, LG has our back. Not feeling LG any more? Then try Motorola. The list goes on and we can afford to be fickle. This is part of the joy of the platform. But how do you handle disappointment when you only have one brand to choose from? Simple: you ignore it. Check out the rest of the article here: Then there’s news that certain models are sold out and that’s before release day Ben Lovejoy reports from 9To5Mac below; Apple says Jet Black iPhone 7 and all 7 Plus models sold out; breaking news to those […]

Evolution of the iPhone from the Original to the Current iPhone 7

iPhone 3G (2008)

Evolution of the iPhone from the Original to the Current iPhone 7     With a storage space of 256 GB, RAM of 3GB, screen size of 5.5 inches and a dual-lens camera; Apple’s latest launch, the iPhone 7 is finally up for release. There have been numerous speculations about this Smartphone. But after its launch, all we can say is Apple’s Smartphone has indeed come a long way since the launch of the first generation iPhone 1.0. Well, iOS has truly witnessed a massive transformation over the last couple of years. When this Smartphone was first launched, the most entertaining thing to do with it was to watch Youtube videos or to find some new web based games. This was a time way before the inception of the innovative apps, multi-tasking tools and web based folders. As we look back, it is indeed great to see how Apple has so massively transformed itself from a simple touch based operating system that lacked several key features, to one of the biggest Smartphone bigwigs in the 21st century where the operating system now has more features and tweaks than a user would possibly need. Today when the latest version of Apple, the Apple iPhone 7 is up for launch, let us look back and observe how things have changed in the mobile operating system arena of Apple. Let us witness this impactful transformation that has taken place over the last one year and have completely revolutionized the digital world. iPhone (2007) After joining hands with Motorola in 2005, to come up with the first phone that supported iTunes, Apple left the failed promotion behind and secretly teamed up with AT&T. During this time, they handled all the aspects of the latest phone’s design. After a long wait of thirty month and a massive investment of $150, Apple launched its very first iPhone. The design language and the OS of this very first version laid major foundations for the upcoming iterations of this Smartphone biggie. In fact, till date, the OS and design language of iOS 1.0 are familiar to the latest iOS 7. For instance, you will observe that the placement of button had been quite the same for many years. Also, the screen size too had been 3.5 inches till the iPhone 5 was first debuted. At the launch event of the very first iPhone, Steve Jobs, the man behind iOS’s inception described the software of iPhone to be another variant of the OS X. Initially, Apple referred to the operating system of iPhone as iPhone OS. It was later changed to iOS after a couple of years. When it was first released on the month of June 29, 2007, the phone only shipped with a few apps. Some of them were the iPod, the push mail, photo gallery, text message, phone, the settings tweak, the camera, maps, Youtube, Calculator and notes. Back then, Apple didn’t even have an app store or the iTunes store. It was also during that […]
