Gophermods, your locally owned and favorite small business specializing in iPhones, iPads, Smartphones and other repair solutions since 2009, has reported it will incorporate iPhone battery testing among their official 21-point checklist during repair services. "Our point is to provider Apple users with another option than sitting in long lines at the mall, or going out on a limb on an unbranded battery obtained on the web," said Casey Profita, President of Gophermods. "Fortunately, there is a fix for slowed-down iPhones because of a maturing battery, and you totally CAN get professional help and another battery with a one-year guarantee by going to a nearby Gophermods store." The root of the battery issue is identified with a component incorporated on the iPhone 6, 6s, 7, and SE iPhones, which downsizes CPU output as batteries decay time. There is no word from Apple that older iPhone models are additionally affected; however, it could be conceivable. The affected iPhone models all utilize lithium-ion batteries, which decline over time, holding less charge, and prompt an unforeseen or inauspicious powering down problem. The throttling software was made to protect components of the iPhone from improper shut down or low-battery-related issues. For battery-related performance issues, exchanging the battery with another one should restore the iPhone to top CPU performance. Gophermods offers battery substitutions beginning at $49.00 for iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, and SE models; $59.00 for iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s Plus models; and $79.00 for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models. "Anybody encountering moderate iPhone performance ought to consider replacing the battery, rather than buying a whole phone," Profita proceeded. "Here at Gophermods, we can test the battery to check whether it is performing inside recommended guidelines, and if not, we have batteries in stock for substitution, those batteries include one-year guarantees against defects."

Sharp and Foxconn – An Unlikely Marriage?

By | 2016-08-02T23:00:00+00:00 August 2nd, 2016|Categories: Uncategorized|

When Foxconn finalized it’s acquisition of Sharp in late April, it brought to mind a few interesting ideas that could happen in the next few years. Sharp has been a supplier for screens on Apple’s iPhones for years. Foxconn, one of the largest electronics manufacturers in the world is the producer of the iPhone. The combining of forces could point us toward a couple of hints in the future of the iPhone, and some positive trends for the industry. 1. Sharp is best known as an LCD manufacturer and has supplied Apple with screens for quite some time. With the rumored move to OLED displays on future iPhones, Sharp would have the experience and technologies in that field to expedite the transition. 2. Having a screen manufacturing company working in-house with Foxconn could reduce the prices of Cell Phone screens, thereby reducing the cost of repairs on future iPhones and saving you money on screen repairs! 3. Samsung, Apple’s biggest rival currently holds 95% of the market for OLED display technology. With Foxconn working together with Sharp, they could pose a serious threat to Samsung’s dominance and drastically reduce the cost of OLED screens. This would make repairs on devices other than iPhones cheaper too! 4. Foxconn saves a tech giant. Sharp has built a reputation for high quality products. However as a company they have posted losses totaling of over $9 Billion the last few years. With Sharp being rejuvenated by Foxconn, they can continue to offer great products, and assist in the manufacturing industry.
