iPhone 6s Battery Percentage Incorrect Data Issue

A lot of users noticed that their iPhone 6s battery percentage doesn’t change on different carriers [there are no more Sprint 2 year contracts for iPhone customers]. This is a new issue that happens to the most recent generation ‘fruit’ smartphones created by Apple and officially launched in the fall 2015. It is reported that the company is already investigating this new 2016 problem.

Is your iPhone 6s battery percentage incorrect as well? It seems that the same bug occurs on iPhone 6s Plus. Did this happen after iOS 9.2 update? You can download the most recent iOS 9.2 ipsw file using direct links still if this upgrade is the issue you might also come across the unusual behavior of your handset battery.

iPhone 6s Battery Percentage Not Changing

The official report is published by Apple and the company also has recommendations for users who experience iPhone 6s battery percentage wrong problem [if you are planning to SIM unlock your iPhone you should use the IMEI checker]. You can also try to use this short instruction to fix the issues with your battery percentage still note that this could be only temporary solution.

Launch Settings app and go to General menu where you can select Date & Time option. Choose Set Automatically to be enabled. Once it is turned on you should have no problem but since too many users are already affected the issue can easily return to your smartphone running iOS 9.2.

The company is now testing iOS 9.3 and 9.3.1 firmware version. This would be another minor update in 2016 before the company presents its next big iOS 10 platform for mobile devices. The next upgrade could fix the issues with battery percentage.

Apple Creating Tool to Help Switch from iPhone to Samsung?

There is one curious rumor. It says that Apple is about to build a special tool that would help iOS users to switch from iPhone to Android devices [there is no need to switch since you can unlock your iPhone]. You have heard that there were many problems when users tried to switch from iOS to Android platform. They stopped receiving text messages because they were sent through iMessage and got lost for some reasons.

It took Apple a while to make a website that helps signing out of iMessage even after the switch so that the problem with messages being undelivered is solved. Now millions of users should have less issues when they decide to switch from iPhone to Samsung or any other Android running handset.

Switch from Apple to Android iPhone Samsung

Still is it true that the Cupertino-based giant is also creating a tool that would help make such a switch painless? The report that suggested Apple was working on such a tool is denied by the iPhone company. Apple states that it is not creating any helping tools for those users who think that they would do better with Android [learn more about factory IMEI unlock before you decide to stop using your iPhone as this service does miracles].

Apple randomly comments on rumors however such report probably seems too ridiculous even for the famous iOS giant if the company reacted and ended the rumors before everything gets out of hand. Apple assured that this particular rumor is ‘no truth.’ The iPhone maker assures that it is completely focused on helping users to switch from Android platform to iOS firmware.

Would anyone believe that the well-known iPhone maker could help its rivals and allow users switching to a different platform? We really doubt but there was the rumor and we had to mention Apple’s comment and our doubts.

iPhone Sprint 2 Year Contract Offers No Longer Available

A lot of customers were used to Sprint 2 year contract offers and many iPhone owners have got their smartphone through such a deal [here is how you can unlock iPhone in iTunes without supported SIM card]. There will be no more two year contracts Sprint options in 2016. The U.S. carrier is planning to only sell tablet gadgets with 2-year contracts while a leaked document states that the same option for handsets is no longer available.

It is believed that Sprint 2 year contract agreement could still be offered to ‘select’ consumers who might get a deal on a ‘reactive bases’ however it’s unclear if users who are already on the contract will be able to renew their contracts or will be forced to upgrade to another data plan.

Sprint No Two Year Contract iPhone 2016

The news about Sprint no two year contract options is not surprising because other major American carriers have done the same thing and stopped offering contracts for 24 months. For example, Verizon and T-Mobile are also not offering such a deal any longer. AT&T is also planning to stop offering 2-year contract deals and it seems that Sprint is also on the same road.

With Sprint no two year contract all main U.S. networks leave customers without contracts on smartphones. Still this doesn’t mean that your iPhone comes unlocked. You will still be locked to the network you purchase the handset from and luckily you can easily unlock Sprint iPhone on iOS 9 or other firmware without problems. Factory SIM unlock service is the top method that makes millions of users free from their network once and forever.

If you have plans to purchase Sprint iPhone in 2016 you can go with Easy Pay option or iPhone Forever plan.

Untethered iOS 7 Jailbreak Problems / Fixes [Evasi0n7 for iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch]

Not much time has come from the date of untethered iOS 7 jailbreak release for iPhone 5S, 5c, new iPad and older iPod touch models. The program contained a lot of bugs but hackers continue working on their utility and improving their jailbreak for iOS 7 devices.

Users who hurried to jailbreak their smartphone or tablet earlier this week are now left with almost no Cydia tweaks for this firmware and especially for A7 gadgets. Developers didn’t expect such soon launch of the jailbreaking tool so no one was actually ready for it. The surprise by the Evad3rs became a real Christmas gift to the jailbreaking community.
The first release installed the Chinese app store instead of Cydia so hackers had to respond to the piracy accusations. That part of the tool was quickly removed with devs’ explanation of the problem through the public letter.

jailbreak iOS 7 Problems
It’s for sure that the number of iOS 7 tweaks and programs will soon increase. Developers are expected to upgrade their apps to support 64-bit chip used in the latest iPad and iPhone models. Users with previous generation iDevices are also out of luck for now as they also see the limited number of applications they can download from third-party companies.
Mobile Substrate should become updated to the newest processor to simplify the process of making all the apps compatible with the faster processor.
Here is the list of the most common iOS 7 jailbreak issues [problems] you can face while trying to untethered your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch:

  • Apple logo boot loop is experience by a number of users after jailbreaking procedure
  • iOS 7 tweaks fail to work properly on the jailbroken devices
  • Some Mac owners can’t launch Evasi0n7 tool on their machines
  • A lot of people get stuck during the jailbreak and can’t proceed to the next step
  • iPad 2 Wi-Fi model often fails to be jailbroken

There are other problems as well. Most of them are fixed or to be fixed in the next Evasi0n 7 updates that are to follow the 1.0.1 presentation which mostly deleted the app store from China and didn’t provide other major changes.
Hackers promise soon upgrades with problems being solved.
