iOS 10

Do we like the update?


The answer that I've heard mostly was the negative. Many people think that the update was pointless and not very necessary. To me, there are some things that I really like, like notifications and the new keyboard sounds haha. But the new messaging stuff is very unnecessary and I can only see teens using those new features. I also like how the screen will awake if you lift it towards your face. I will say that it seems like apple is moving towards the Samsung system, because it does look a little similar. I'm not very well versed on Samsung software but from what I do know it does look similar. Overall, I do like the new update even though there are some things that are pretty useless in my opinion. Tell me what you think in the comments below!

Make It Happen


Something that I'm realizing is how to just make things happen. There are moments whether short or long when you just don't feel like doing things and being productive. That has been my problem for as long as I can remember, some can be blamed on laziness other moments can be blamed on outside things that I can't help. Since the beginning of the year i've challenged myself to just ignore whatever was holding me back and just going full force into whatever I wanted to do. There have been moments when I failed or when I needed to take breaks but as a whole I've done a pretty good job at being more consistent. This post is really for anyone like me who has a goal and can't keep with it. There are no short cuts, no secrets just work hard! Work consistently, it might take years to get to where you want to go but keep fighting it for it. We have dreams and goals for a reason and I truly believe the more you work for something the more it will work out in your favor.

iPhone 7 Released!

Did you get your iPhone?


I will go over some of the key features that are on the new iPhone. First of all, and the most obvious change is the new jet black version. Now before you go running to get this new version, just know that fingerprints will be very noticeable on this version, just a heads up. Next is the headphones, there is no headphones jack and people have been freaking out about it. The airpods in my opinion are good in theory but the fact that they will probably be lost and are $159.00, just not worth it. Honestly you could buy any other pair of wireless headphones and it should be okay, so the loss of the headphone jack shouldn't be that big of a deal. The new iPhone is water resistant, which is always a plus, you won't have to worry about getting water on it as much as you did before.

Overall, should you upgrade? the question I always ask myself every time apple has a new release. This year, I would recommend you wait. Unless your phone is broken, the battery is horrible, or you just really want this version then I would hold on. If the rumors that i've heard are true then next year's release will be better than this years. But it's up to you, Apple's releases have been underwhelming in the past years and being an apple junkie that hurts my heart to say this haha. The release this year has been better than the past ones, so it's looking up for Apple. Let me know if you are getting the new iPhone in my comments! You can check out my old iPhone rumors post here.
