The iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch were announced…what’s next on October 16th?

Hello everyone,

Apple released some of their biggest devices in the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Of course, they also announced the Apple Watch as well, however since we can’t get our hands on them until 2015, it’s tough to get too excited about them yet. I know that my buddy Troy is in line for one of their lime green Apple Watch Sport models. He just can’t wait. Tick-tock, tick-tock.

If you remember last year Apple introduced the iPad Air and it seems like the Air will be getting some updates in a few days. Touch scan home button added? I bet it does! There’s also been some rumors about a new anti-glare screen which would be a nice improvement as well for some; me in particular as I have trouble with the glass screens lately. I tend to even leave the lights off in my office to avoid screen glare at times on my iMac. Bottom line is some help here would be greatly appreciated from many users!

Will an iPad Pro be released?

Software releases: I’m sure there will be something that comes across for us here. If you had problems with iOS8 like I did, hopefully their newest releases will be enhanced and trouble free. I’m scared to upgrade my iPhone again…my last software update was kind of a nightmare.

Personally, I love these Apple announcements and look forward to hearing what Apple has coming for us. Stay tuned, Apple’s October 16th event is just a couple of days away- and just in time for the holiday shopping season!

Take care, Ryan

Apple’s WWDC 2014 – what did you think?

Hello electronics gurus, did you get a chance to watch or hear about Apple’s announcements at their Worldwide Developer Conference yesterday?

In my opinion, you didn’t miss too much; I know that a lot of people were waiting to hear about the new 2014 iPhone release but you have to remember that Apple typically doesn’t announce new iPhones until later in the year.

They did talk about the new changes in their iOS; upgrading it to iOS 8 and their new computer system software dubbed “Yosemite” that are both geared and intended to link hand held devices and computers closer together.

Earlier this year, I was personally happy to see the iOS upgrade to version 7.1.1 and I really enjoy it. iOS 8 should be exciting as well. The Verge put together a good report on the conference here. I’m happy with the “Family Sharing” capability that will allow up to six people to share iTunes purchases including apps and music. Awesome!

What can we expect in terms of a new iPhone this year? As usual the rumor mill is cranking out some good info, but there’s a lot of talk about a huge “Samsung like” screen that is 5.5″ to compete with the other “huge screen” Smartphones in the market. When will we know for sure? Check back with me sometime in September, I bet we’ll know then.

We here at Mission Repair are trying to get as much info as possible about this new iPhone and if we can gather anything of interest, you’ll hear it here first. Until then we will keep working on sourcing screens for this behemoth and be ready for it’s release. I know that we’ll have someone call us the first day they are released with a cracked glass – it never fails.

Any input on the WWDC? What did you think?

Take care, Ryan
