 What's New From Apple?

iPhone 6s

Peek and Pop Technology
Apple just announced its newest technology breakthrough which comes in the iPhone 6s.  Now the phone responds differently depending on how hard you press on the screen.  A light press allows you to peek at an email or photos whereas a firmer touch will cause you to open them.  

iOS 9.0 9.1 upgrade

Wondering what your News App does?  Or how it got on your phone?  It's part of the new Apple iOS 9 upgrade which includes Siri and greater ease to sharing info between devices. iOS 9 has been out for more than a month. Apple has released several bug fixes - so this is a good time to upgrade. (Click HERE to find out what else is new in 9.x)

BEFORE YOU UPGRADE, be sure to backup your device!! Read our Step-By-Step Guide to Upgrading to iOS 9 for more details.

Cell providers or the Apple store may take a trade-in. You may not get much for your old phone but they may bundle with additional discounts. You can also try to sell your device using a service like Gazelle. They make it easy to send in your old technology. Or maybe you'd like a tax deduction - you can donate your old device. Technology4Life welcomes your donation of working older equipment and we can give you a tax deduction slip as well. Contact us and we would be happy to pick up your old device.
