  • Tech Rumors: iPhone 7

    Earlier this week, rumours about the new iPhone began flying in the wake of a few leaks about Apple’s newest product. While the iPhone 6 and 6S came with some minor upgrades, it’s been a while since the phone got a major makeover. Apple usually launches new designs every two years, so many are hoping that this most recent update will give tech lovers the overhaul they’ve been longing for. The rumours about the phone, which is reportedly scheduled for release in September 2016, include speculations on its design, features, functionality and price.

    By far the most talked-about change is the revamp of the iconic iPhone home button. Instead of the familiar white button used for Touch ID, the new “button” will actually be a touch sensitive part that blends seamlessly with the screen and uses haptic feedback to simulate the feeling of a button when pressed. Some think this feature is a stepping-stone for Apple’s for next year’s iPhone, which is believed to look like a single sheet of glass.

    Others say that the iPhone 7 will be more “rugged” than its predecessors, and more resistant to water and dust. The camera will most likely have even more megapixels than the 12 boasted by the 6S, and leaked photos have a much larger lens on the rear facing camera.

    In terms of the 7’s system, the phone’s anticipated release date lines up nicely with the launch of iOS 10, introducing a much smarter Siri, new messaging capabilities and a “Rise to Wake” feature that changes the way the phone lights up.

    With major updates come major increases in cost, but certain leaks indicate the iPhone 7 will cost approximately the same as the 6S, around $650, but that the 7 will include more gigabytes of storage.

  • Clumsy? Then the Celicious Impact Screen Protector is for you!

    How often have you been using your phone while walking down the street or up a flight of stairs, only to drop it and shatter the screen? Or maybe you accidentally left it lying on the roof of your car while you backed out of the driveway. Perhaps you just have a tendency to knock your phone against hard surfaces. If this sounds like you in any way, you need a way to protect your precious, delicate phone screen from yourself.

    The Impact Screen Protector from Celicious is the perfect option for clumsy techies who want (or need) to protect their screens from spills, drops and bumps. Impact is a thin, film-based screen protector designed to protect your phone from damage. It features moderate anti-shock resistance for those times when your phone goes tumbling to the ground, resisting sudden shock and absorbing some of the impact. It also keeps those regular scuffs, scratches, knocks and dings that come from daily use off of your screen.

    Impact, like all of Celicious’ screen protectors, is highly responsive to touch, so it won’t interfere with the function of your touch screen smart phone. It also won’t peel away with regular use, and doesn’t leave a stick residue on your phone screen.

    The Impact Screen Protector is available for many devices and brands, including iPhone 6S, iPhone SE, Samsung Galaxy S7, HTC 10, iPad Pro, iPad Mini 4 and the Microsoft Surface Book.

    If you want to add a case or skin alongside your screen protector, Celicious sells stylish cases for an additional layer of device protection.
