What's Your Favorite New iOS Feature? September 15 2016

Along with the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple is introducing the latest iteration of it's state-of-the-art iPhone operating system, or iOS 10. The team at Got Mac has been trying it out since its release on Monday and we have to say we're thoroughly impressed, to say the least.

Apple has made an already amazing phone operating system even better and more efficient. There's no question that iOS is the best smartphone operating system out there. Try it out and see for yourself.

Along with speed improvements (yes, it really does feel a lot faster), the iOS offers many new design tweaks and built-in features, the main one having to do with iMessage.

In iMessage, you now have a lot more functionality as far as interacting with your contacts. You can send rich links that display thumbnails and in-line videos within your message threads as well as several text messaging effects that really make the texting experience all the more fun.

That's just the tip of the iceberg. If you want to learn more about iOS 10, visit Apple's website, or try it for yourself! You won't be disappointed. For those of you who are already using iOS 10, what's your favorite feature? 

Trading in Your Iphone? Your Carrier May Need to Have the Battery Removed. September 09 2016

We've been getting reports of Verizon Wireless customers saying that in order to ship their iPhones in as part of their trade-in program, the battery must first be removed. We speculate that this is to help minimize the possibility of battery damage during transit. It's a simple enough undertaking to remove the battery, but it does require some special tools. It also requires some technical know-how. We do battery replacements here at Got Mac for all iPhones. If you need to have your iPhone battery removed, please don't hesitate to bring it to us.

New Apple Products! September 07 2016

Did you watch Apple's Special Keynote this morning? There are a lot of amazing new products coming out by the end of the month, both in the hardware and software realms. We at Got Mac anticipate every new Apple product with bated breath. We love to see how a company we love so much continues to innovate and break the barrier when it comes to new and exciting features. We also recognize that until iPhones come with force fields that will protect them from falling and breaking, we will continue to repair them. With the new iPhone 7 releasing this month, we acknowledge the reality that breaks will still happen. That's why we're ready to continue to fix your new devices as fast as we can, for the best price possible. We wish these devices were impervious to breakage, but you can rest assured knowing that if such misfortune does come your way, we'll be here to save the day.
