With Apple brand new iOS7 update finally here, there are a few things that need to be addressed before we all rush to download the new update. Precautions must me taken. I’m not saying your phone will explode or anything of the sort, but if you would rather not spend hours and hours asking all of your friends for their contact information, it would be wise to know what steps you should take before you jump into the new update
To all the Apple mobile device users reading this, we are all aware of the issues with the iOS6 software that we dealt with. While they all not be completely detrimental to how we worked our devices, they were still enough of a bother that it made some of us less than excited. Some of these issues was loss of contacts and other various information. The answer to this loss of information is simple; Back up your data. Make sure all of your contacts, music, photos, etc. are backed up via iCloud, just in the event that the new update should wipe these documents and other files clean.head first. Nothing wrong with being too prepared!
There is nothing wrong with taking extra measures to make sure your data doesn’t get erased. Losing all of your photos and music can be extremely annoying. I speak from experience! Just make sure you back up all your information before diving into the new update today. Better to be safe than sorry!

With the release of the new iPhone 5, there has been quite the amount of buzz circulating around a certain feature of the new phone. As many of us have seen in the spy movies, finger scanners just give off that “cool” vibe when it comes to security. It has also always given a more secure feeling to most people that either like their privacy or business associates with important information regarding their work. But how secure is it really?
There have been quite a few scary concerns recently regarding the new security feature. Some have even been worried that thieves may even go to extremes to unlock a phone cut a finger off. Apple has made sure to address even this extreme of an issue and has stated that the finger has to be “alive and attached” to the body still. Extreme but not unheard of. But even with this level of security, it still something that consumers are concerned about. Apple as gone on to elaborate that pass codes will still be a reigning factor in security, but will be more used as a failsafe.
Now that the iPhone 5s and 5c are here now, the implications and overall effectiveness of this feature will now be able to really be put to the test. The idea has been tinkered with for a while now, but is now viewed by some to be the start of a new revolution in security measures. Now that a large scale company such as Apple has “opened the floodgates”, so to speak, I feel it’s safe to say that we should all be expecting the competitive market to take notice and fall suit. Personally, I wouldn’t mind feeling like James Bond every time I pulled my phone out.
