iOS 7Well, the moment you’ve been waiting for since WWDC is here: iOS 7 is now available for download!

But before you upgrade your iDevice, make sure it’ll work on your model; nothing will put the brakes on iOS-Mania faster than finding out it won’t work for you.

iOS 7 is compatible with the following: 

  • iPhone 4 and later
  • iPad 2 and later, including the iPad mini

To upgrade, first upgrade iTunes to the latest version vis Software Update. Then, simply connect your iDevice to your computer, open iTunes, make a backup of your data, and then go ahead and click that Upgrade button.

And, while you’re waiting to upgrade your software with the latest and greatest, why not do the same for your hardware and check out the Newer Technology NuGuard KX case.

Sometimes you can be shocked in a good way—like when you think your family has forgotten your birthday only to find out that they surprised you with the Chuck E. Cheese party you’ve always wanted (you’re never too old for arcade games). But sometimes things can be shocking in a bad way—like when you find out someone has stolen your credit card and used it to buy a lifetime supply of popsicles (out of all the things, why??). Another bad type of shock is electrical shock, which is a relevant topic as of late.

There have been two recent incidents of people getting shocked in China involving the iPhone. Last week, a Chinese man was left in a coma after being shocked while charging his iPhone 4. This follows another recent incident where a Chinese woman was killed by electrical shock when she answered her iPhone 5 while it was charging.  In both cases, the individuals were using an unauthorized third-party adapter to charge their devices.

In response to these incidents, Apple has Article Continues…
