Some Much-Awaited Updates for Apple Users This Week

A lot of tech-savvy folks have waited a long time and saved money for the iPhone 6 Plus, Apples’ latest smartphone model. Finally, when they got their hands on their own unit, people could be seen raving about it in social media. But for a few unlucky owners, their iPhone 6 Plus had one important glitch: its camera was janky. This frustrated a lot of users because they haven’t been able to take a clear photo since they got their iPhone 6 units. Thankfully, Apple announced Monday, August 24, 2015, that they are now offering to replace your phone’s crappy camera without any cost.

According to the multibillion technology company, “in a small percentage of iPhone 6 Plus devices, the iSight camera has a component that may fail causing your photos to look blurry. The affected units fall into a limited serial number range and were sold primarily between September 2014 and January 2015.”


To check if your iPhone 6 Plus is one of the fortunate devices to get a free camera fix, check out their iPhone iSight Replacement Program. Then, input your phone’s serial number in their database. If your phone is affected by this glitch, then you should take it to the nearest Apple store of any authorized service provider to have it replaced.

Another much-awaited update that Apple users want upcoming iPhone models to have is a battery that last longer the all the earlier versions. Unfortunately, Apple hasn’t perfected that yet. Not to fret though, because someone else has stepped in and promised a brighter future for iPhone fans.

A British tech company named Intelligent Energy has been working closely with Apple. In fact, they have implemented this significant technology into a few slightly modified models of the iPhone 6.


Intelligent Energy is a company responsible for developing a hydrogen-powered battery that could last an entire week with regular use. How their battery does this is by combining oxygen and hydrogen to produce electricity.

Although there isn’t a tentative release date yet, both tech firms are now considering the price once iPhones powered by these smart battery packs will be launched.
