We all know that it is quite important for repair industry to stay up-to-date with electronic product design updates and technology news covering everything from gadgets to engineering innovation. Why? The world is developing at a fast rate, whereas electronic world is developing at a crazy rate. Apple comes up with iPhone series that have occupied an exciting part of the market. Brilliant, isn’t it? Still, Android-based smartphones also emerged at a surprising speed. iPhone vs Android (or iOS vs Android, to be more precise) has been the biggest rivalry in tech for the past decade.
Here comes the question. Which of those two clans electronic products consumers would like to join? For Android users, there is a diverse selection of devices, at a diverse set of price points. They can get a full-featured and functional smartphone at a good price. As for iPhone users, the reason can be complicated. Guaranteed software updates for years, best apps, more secure platform, more user-friendly, and most importantly, Apple’s quality experience in a closed environment beats all. Some iPhone users also come with the view that the smoothly functioned iPhone lifespan can easily beat a low-priced Android smartphone. On the basis of the same cost, why not choose the stably smooth one instead of experiencing the frequently malfunctioned Android smartphones.
Sounds reasonable. So what is the real state of smoothly functioned iPhone lifespan?
"To model customer use, we measure the power consumed by a product while it is running in a simulated scenario. Daily usage patterns are specific to each product and are a mixture of actual and modeled customer use data."
"Years of use, which are based on first owners, are assumed to be four years for OS X and tvOS devices and three years for iOS and watchOS devices," said Apple in one report.
In other words, according to official word from Apple, the Apple Watch and iPhone will last for three years with its first owner, while Mac computers and the Apple TV should last for four years. What does it mean? In spite of all these fresh updates Apple rolling out year by year, Apple older devices are still in a fragile situation. They may get those updates, which are usually modelled for the newer versions, but their hardware specs may not be able to support the added weight. So, what can users do to get around this two- to four-year deadline?
Here are some REWA tips to prolong the limited iPhone Lifespan
To keep the phone fast and performing as if it’s still new, there are two main areas to concentrate on: data storage and battery capacity.
For data storage, users can either store large files on a removable memory card or back up older files on an external hard drive. Excess cached files also need to be cleared up from time to time. Keeping only frequently used apps on the phone will also keep data storage down. Or one specific way as we illustrated before- upgrade the storage!
For battery capacity, Apple says the iPhone battery loses about 20 percent of its original capacity after 500 charge cycles. To get the battery replaced in time, users need to keep themselves informed of the signs indicating a new battery for the phone.
