Target & Toms Launched A New Collection For Apple Products

If you’re constantly using your Apple Watch and iPhone but always thought they could use a bit more style, then you’re in luck, because Target and Toms have just partnered together to make an exclusive collection for the Apple Watch and the iPhone 7-8, that include nine different colors and patterns for you to pick from.

Target and Toms made two collections, one is called the “Utility” and is said to have a classic look designed for travel and adventure, made with durable grossgrain, stainless steel and leather detailing. And the other collection is called “Wanderlust” which was inspired by Toms founder Blake Mycoskie’s friendship bracelet collection, that has a woven fabric and a leather backing with stainless steel detailing as well.

This collaboration is said to also be for a good cause, since every watch band sold, Toms, Solar Sister and Solar Aid will provide one year of solar light, to ensure that individuals have access to safe, reliable light sources in areas that may be less fortunate. So this way, every time you buy something from their collection you’re giving back to somebody that may not have proper lighting in their home or lighting at all.

“We love the idea of incorporating giving into a product you use on a daily basis.” Mycoskie said, “With our new Toms for Apple Watch band, we will not only help provide light, but we will be positively impacting education, economic opportunity, health and safety for so many people who desperately need it.”

So if you’re interested in supporting the collection and trying out one of their bands or cases, then you can always check out Target’s official website where they’re currently selling them for around $49-$75 depending on the band or case.

Is the iPhone 8 being outsold by the iPhone 7?

iPhone 8 Vs iPhone 7

While it's typically easy to gauge the popularity of a new iPhone model, current demand for Apple's recently released iPhone 8 models is something of an enigma. Depending on who you ask, iPhone 8 sales are either disappointing or exactly where they should be in light of the forthcoming iPhone X release. A recent analyst note, however, is perhaps the most pessimistic take on iPhone 8 sales we've seen yet.

According to a research note from KeyBanc analyst John Vinh, Apple may have reason to worry. According to a recent survey conducted by Vinh, and originally published by Reuters, it's not just that iPhone 8 sales are trending lower than anticipated, it's that Apple is still selling more iPhone 7 models than iPhone 8 models. The supposed reason for this curious finding is that the iPhone 7 is more affordable and essentially delivers the exact same features as the iPhone 8.

How the iPhone’s insides have changed, from the original iPhone to the iPhone X

iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7 vs original iPhone

We all know that the iPhone has changed a lot. If you have an old original iPhone lying in a drawer somewhere, you've probably picked it up in the past couple of years, and marveled at how thick it is, and how tiny the screen seems.

Bloomberg and iFixit have teamed up to take the basic gawking a step further. In a neat new project, they've superimposed the guts of every generation of iPhone next to each other, and the contrast is truly startling.

Have A Slow iPhone? Data Shows Apps Are To Blame, Not Apple

For years, many people have believed that iPhones get slower whenever a newer one comes out. However, a new study has been released that explains the real reason why iPhones get slower.

In the study, researchers compared the performance of different iPhones over a course time and found that all of them behaved consistently, whether the device was an older model or a newer model. This was based on 100,000 benchmark results that featured iPhone models ranging from the iPhone 5s to the iPhone 7 running iOS 9, iOS 10, and iOS 11. According to Futuremark, the “iPhone 5S GPU performance has remained consistent from iOS 9 to iOS 11, with only minor variations that fall well within normal levels.” The graphics performance remained the same for the iPhone 6, 6S, and 7 but there was a slight drop with the processor performance when the devices updated to a newer iOS version.

“The graphs for CPU performance show a very slight drop in performance over time – possibly due to minor iOS updates or other factors – but a user would be unlikely to notice this small difference in everyday use,” said Futuremark.

“Our benchmarking data shows that, rather than intentionally degrading the performance of older models, Apple actually does a good job of supporting its older devices with regular updates that maintain a consistent level of performance across iOS versions,”

This study was released in a response to a blog that suggested Apple slows down older model iPhones in order for users to buy a newer model after it’s released. The blog based its results on a 2014 study by a Harvard economics student, who Googled searched trends to investigate ‘planned obsolescence.’ The student found that ‘iPhone slow’ searches rose shortly after Apple released a newer model.

Even though Apple has not intentionally slowed down iPhones, it has been noted that most people feel that their iPhone became slower. Some people may feel this way since apps are being updated to offer more complex features for newer devices, which ultimately leads to apps performing worse over time on older models since the handset has to do more to launch and run the app.
