What the Google IO Announcements Mean for iPhone Life Readers


Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference is less than two weeks away, but Google's is just ending. They made a lot of announcements and some of them will have an impact on the iOS world. Here are some of the most important and relevant items, in addition to fingerprint-based authentication and Android Pay which we covered earlier.

IK Multimedia Releases New AmpliTube 4 Version


To go with its great mobile tech gear for musicians, IK has released a new and improved version of its app AmpliTube 4 ($19.99). This latest and greatest iOS music software provides musicians with superior DSP, multi-looping and much much more.

Roundup: Recent iOS 9 and iPhone 6s Rumors


As the June 8-12 Worldwide Developers Conference approaches—and the anticipated announcement of iOS 9—we're seeing a lot of rumors related to iOS 9 and the forthcoming iPhone, which many are expecting to be called the iPhone 6s. 

Could iPhone 5c Update Add Touch ID and Apple Pay?


The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus get all the press but Apple is happy to "sell" you the iPhone 5c at no cost (thanks to carrier subsidies), and that may be enough power for most people. In fact, the smaller size could be desirable to some. Even the plastic packaging is proving to be tougher than folks imagined, including standing up to a shotgun blast and saving the life of the owner in the process!

IK Aims at Camera Stabilization with iKlip Grip


The iKlip Grip ($59.99) is a departure for IK Multimedia from their usual music-oriented gadgetus. The Grip is basically a portable, expandable camera stand that can also become a handy selfie pole. However, the Grip is no one-trick pony, thanks to its universal camera mount attachment point that is compatible with many cameras and accessories.

AT&T May Block Apple and Other Retailers From Offering Subsidized iPhones


It's getting ugly out there. AT&T is looking to move customers into their Next plan which lets users get new phones every 12, 18, or 24 months, but they pay full price for their phones, spread out over 12 or 24 months. The older contract model let users get new phones every two years, and pay a subsidized fee for their smartphone. That means a phone Apple would normally charge $500 to $700 might sell for $300 or less.

Everything iPhone - Apps, Accessories, Reviews, Wallpapers etc | iPhone Life Magazine

The iPhone has become a benchmark for all other smartphones to compete with.  Reviews on the cases, accessories, apps, wallpapers and more are located below.  Here are a couple of Articles that showcase what we have to offer.  For eaxample, iPhone 4S by Alex Cequea (iPhone Life Magazine Editor in Chief).

In that article, Alex says that the iPhone 4S has the exact same physical form factor as the iPhone 4. However, the insides are a whole different story, and Apple tried to make that very clear. The most notable improvements are the 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, the A5 dual-core processor (same as the iPad 2), and an improved battery life (8 hours of 3G talk time, 200 hours of standby). As far as the capabilities, the new Siri Assistant feature was the highlight of the show. The Siri Assistant recognizes natural language and can answer questions such as, "What's the temperature out today?" Combined with the phone's GPS, you can say something like, "Remind me to call my wife when I get to work." The Assistant will not only know who your "wife" is, it'll also know where "work" is and pop up a reminder to "call Marcy" when you get there."

Here's another great article, The Best iPhone 4 Cases. This article goes on to explain that like its iPhone predecessors, cases have become one of the most popular ways to accessorize your cell phone. Most cell phone consumers buy a case bundled with their new phone to protect it from day one. And who can blame them? Mobile devices have become hugely valuable and expensive items; you want to protect them the best way you can. There are literally hundreds of cases on the market. Let's examine the different options available on the market to help you choose the one that's right for you.

What to know how to create your own app?  "The first step in creating an app is to understand what you want to create and how you will measure its success. Make sure the idea is well vetted and there is a solid business case behind it. There are roughly 600 new apps submitted to Apple each day—what is going to differentiate your app from the thousands that are already available and being launched each week? Here are some questions you’ll want to ask when getting your app idea..."
