I appreciate my iPhone 6s Plus’ ability to display the Home screen in landscape mode, but in practice I rarely use it or even want it. With a stock iPhone 6s Plus, there’s no way to prevent the Home screen from rotating without turning off rotation altogether. But a new jailbreak tweak called Nuus will allow you to isolate rotation locking to just the Home screen. Read More

China-based Beaver Electronics Co. recently unveiled a reasonably priced portable juice pack with buttonless design that after 15 minute of fast-charging holds enough juice to fully recharge an iPhone 5s. In fact, the Quarter recharges any mobile device via USB.
Surprisingly, through its built-in MagSafe 2 port the Quarter charging its 5,000mAh internal battery via the MacBook’s MagSafe wall charger takes under an hour. The company kindly provided me a review unit that I tested out over the past week, here’re my impressions. Read More

I hate carrying a bunch of stuff around with me wherever I go. I try to pair down to the minimum, which means a couple of cards, some cash, my iPhone, and maybe some Chapstick (oh, and candy… always gotta have candy). To me, a wallet is a bulky, unnecessary addition that I don’t want to deal with.
CM4’s Q Card Case for iPhone 6s is perfect for holding your cards and cash so you don’t need a wallet. It’s ultra thin (as wallet cases go), so you’re still ahead when it comes to stuffing your pockets. Now you can have more room for candy. Read More

If you tend to type a lot on your iPhone 6, and not just texting your buddies for dinner plans, then you could probably use an external keyboard to help speed things up.
Fosmon makes a portable mini keyboard that is about as small as an iPhone 6 and comes with a trackpad and arrow keys. While the track pad is only useful for non-iOS products, the arrow keys provide a movable cursor while you type. Read More

T-Mobile’s outspoken CEO John Legere confirmed today on Twitter that his company will be offering an iPhone 6s beginning Friday for as low as $5, $10 or $15 per month, depending on the model being purchased and older iPhone traded in, through its JUMP! On Demand device upgrade program. The lowest $5 per month pricing entails an iPhone 6 trade in, while buying a new iPhone 6s for $10 per month requires trading in your iPhone 5s.
Customers can take advantage of this offer even if they have already pre-ordered their device with a trade-in. Leggier conformed in another tweet that pre-orders of new iPhones at T-Mobile are up thirty percent versus the previous year. Read More

Sure, you can plug your iPhone into any old USB adapter and throw it on the table (or couch arm or floor) and it won’t matter what position it is in while charging. But, if you want your iPhone on display while it charges, you’ll want to look into a dock.
Belkin makes a minimalist style charging dock that takes up very little space on your desktop while it provides the juice you need to get your battery to 100 percent. Read More
