Apple has just released new hardware, are now we are rounding the corner toward WWDC and then on to the real iPhone rumor silly season. With the recent dust settling, there are new iPhone deals to turn our attention to. At the moment, Target, BestBuy, and T-Mobile all have various sales and offers that can save you money or bring you extra features.
This week, Apple followed up last year’s mid-product cycle release of the iPhone SE with a couple of small, but welcomed additions to the iPhone linuep. While they were modest enough to not warrant an event of their own, and instead just a press release and rollout in the online Apple Store, they are still definitely worth talking about.
I am normally a full-on case and screen protector man, myself. In that spirit, I took a look at Vaja’s Niko Wallet-Case for the iPhone 7 Plus last week, and came away loving what I saw. However, there will always be those who prefer to either carry their iPhones “naked,” or prefer items that center on the cosmetic, more than coverage. For the latter, Vaja’s Leather Back is a unique and affordable enhancement that stands out from the crowd.
The tech blogosphere was awash in a new rumor that gained steam over a week and seemed to peak yesterday- Apple would abandon the Lightning Connector for the next iPhone, which will have a USB-C charging port. I was skeptical as soon as I heard this because it would frankly be so out of character for Apple. They have always preferred to stick with proprietary connectors on their mobile devices, and have never shown any signs of changing this philosophy. However, there were some heavy hitters, such as the Wall Street Journal, reporting this yesterday, so it gained a lot of steam….until today.
