How to extend iPhone Battery Life

Extending iPhone battery life is very simple and needs following few steps which is really very easy for any iPhone user.
Here I will tell you how to perform the steps so that you can do it yourself at home.
Modifying iPhone battery/ power section is technically called “Calibrating battery”. Now why you should calibrate your iPhone Battery?

Calibrating your iPhone battery (also referred to as resetting the battery) is a surprisingly important part of iPhone maintenance. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize its benefits, and even fewer take the time to perform the necessary steps.
Without a correctly calibrated battery, you’re likely to experience inaccurate and erratic battery percentage readings, quicker battery drain, and a shorter total lifespan for your battery. If you iPhone shuts down unexpectedly when your battery life percentage hits single digits, poor calibration is almost certainly to blame.
Many factors can cause a battery to become incorrectly calibrated…

Common Laptop Problems

Here, we will go a bit deeper about common computer problems on laptops. It is a very high probability that it will be a hard drive problem. From my personal experience, hard drive tends to fail at very high rates. And, it is natural for them to fail as they have moving parts which get heavy loads during usage.
Another factor that puts the hard drive at risk in the first place is that laptops are carried around and sometimes suffer from heavy drops to the floor. There are developed systems that disable the hard drive when it senses it is falling. But, this device only seems to work on the newest systems, and is not very reliable.

Figure 1: A classic example of a bad sector on a hard disk. The Motherboard does not have any moving or spinning parts and the build quality they have these days is very good. So, to see a motherboard fault is less likely than a hard drive fault. But, there are many factors that influence the motherboard to fail as well. The well-known DC Jack f…

Is your Macbook overheating?

When Apple revealed its newest MacBook Pro laptops, it naturally emphasized the computers’ performance capabilities. Apple’s line of pro laptops is targeted toward creative professionals who do processor-intensive work on their PCs, and Apple was eager to appeal to them. There was just one issue, as some early buyers soon found out: In certain scenarios the machines were under performing due to thermal throttling.

Apple now says it’s aware of the issue and is releasing a software fix to address it. In a statement released today, the company says it’s discovered a bug that’s been slowing down processor speeds when the machine gets hot. “Following extensive performance testing under numerous workloads, we’ve identified that there is a missing digital key in the firmware that impacts the thermal management system and could drive clock speeds down” under heavy loads on the new laptops, an Apple spokesperson said. “We apologize to any customer who has experienced less than optim…

Why do software developers love to use MacBook Pro for development if they prefer a Unix-based OS?

One less thing to think about when there’s a billion things to think about
With software development being the act of keeping so many balls in the air, it’s nice to have a development machine which requires minimal thought and configuration. Sure, Linux is fun and you learn a lot while using it, but when you just want your development environment to work it’s often not the best choice (unless you have considerable expertise with your bistro of choice).
You get a lot of the most useful Unix qualities in OSX
Frankly, all I need is a nice terminal, a laptop that keeps running, and the best tools for your job: and this is what OSX provides. I have my lovely iterm2 app configured with Oh My ZSH. I have all my development tools (which are usually built for native OSX and so run smoothly). I have a laptop which very rarely freezes. So I’m happy. The difference between Linux and OSX is the difference between a car made of Lego and a normal car. You can make that Lego car into almo…
