What's New in iOS 9.1 October 28 2015

It's been a little over the month since the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus were released to great fanfare and outstanding sales. These new models launched with iOS 9, the latest iteration of Apple's mobile operating system that runs on iPhones and the iPad. After a couple of subsequent releases designed to fix bugs and improve overall performance, Apple released iOS 9.1. While the change in version number may not seem significant, it does bring several new features and improvements. Let's take a look.

If you use the default Apple keyboard and like to make heavy use of emojis, you'll find over 140 new ones to make use of, including one that might be considered explicit. These emojis will also work on the Apple Watch.

Focusing specifically on the newer 6S and 6S Plus models, the Live Photos feature has been significantly improved. In case you are unaware of how it works, you can snap photos and take a couple of seconds of video at the same time, essentially turning it into the equivalent of a GIF animation. The new improvements in iOS 9.1 addressing Live Photos means you can now stop recording/snapping when you raise or lower your phone, reducing the odds of grabbing pictures you didn't intend to.

Video editing enthusiasts using the iPad Air 2 or the iPad Pro will finally be able to edit 4K video on their device with the iOS 9.1 update, so be sure to update if you haven't already done so.

Turn Any Pen into a Stylus with StretchWrite October 21 2015

During last month's Apple product announcement, one of the new products the company highlighted was its Apple Pencil, a digital stylus designed to work with its then newly announced iPad Pro tablet.  Among its many features is the ability to determine pressure sensitivity, angle and its Bluetooth capabilities that allow it to communicate with the internal system as well as the iPad Pro's screen.  All of these new features come with the asking price of $100, which may seem excessive if you only use a stylus on occasion.  This is where the Felix StretchWrite comes in.

With the Felix StretchWrite, virtually any pen or pencil you happen to have lying around suddenly becomes a makeshift stylus.  The StretchWrite fits most standard pens and pencils and works with just about any modern tablet you might have.  Just insert the pen or pencil into the StretchWrite, flip it around and use the other end to jot down notes or make drawings on your existing iPad, your Kindle Fire or any of the Samsung Galaxy tablets.   StretchWrite provides comfort, and its rubber design ensures a firm grip when you're unleashing your creativity and sketching on your tablet.  You can choose from two different packs available in red-gray or blue-pink.  Both packages bring a pair of StretchWrites and cost $9.99.

The StretchWrite is only one of many different accessories sold by Felix.  We also sell iPhone cases and accessories such as our universal tablet stands.  Visit our website www.felixbrand.com for information on our other products or to order your StretchWrite today.


Follow Recipes and Watch Video Hands Free with the Felix TwoHands October 15 2015

Yesterday we showed you the Felix SmallHands, a flexible accessory designed for your smartphone that makes it much easier to watch video or use your phone hands free.  Although there are large phones out there like the recently released iPhone 6S Plus that provide plenty of screen real estate, watching an intense action sequence on your phone just isn't the same as watching it on a larger, high resolution tablet.  Thankfully, the Felix TwoHands is designed to provide the same convenience and flexibility for these larger devices.

Whether you use an iPad, Amazon Kindle, or a Galaxy Tab, the TwoHands will provide a secure grip on your device and since it's adjustable, you can decide what angle works best for watching the newest releases in portrait or landscape. Just like the SmallHands, the TwoHands is designed for portability.  Throw it in your bag and take it wherever you have some downtime and you'll never have to deal with the fatigue of holding on to your tablet for an extended period of time.  The TwoHands is available in six different colors: blue, green, pink, white, red, and black though availability may vary.  Add some style and personality to your existing tablet accessories!

The TwoHands is only one of many different accessories sold by Felix and it fits any tablet up to 10.5”.  We also sell iPhone cases and accessories such as our universal cell phone stands.  Visit our website www.felixbrand.com for information on our other products or to order your TwoHands today.


Watch Video Hands-Free with the SmallHands October 13 2015

When you're watching videos on your phone, one of the more annoying things is having to constantly hold the phone up to watch at a comfortable angle.  The only other option you have is to purchase a case with a built-in kickstand, which adds unnecessary bulk to your phone.  What do you do when you're watching a movie and need both hands to do something else?  The SmallHands accessory might be the perfect solution.

Whether you're planning on watching a movie, video chatting, or maybe want to have both hands available to snap a selfie at a particular angle, the SmallHands accessory is designed to be the perfect stand.  It will stand comfortably on your desk, your kitchen table, or even those tiny airplane trays so you can kick back and see everything on your screen while having both of your hands available.  Intended to be used in both landscape or portrait mode, all you need to do is squeeze the lightweight SmallHands, clip it to your phone and then adjust to your desired angle.  Throw it in your pocket or bag and you'll always have this convenient stand available no matter where you go.  The SmallHands is available in five different colors and works with both iPhone and Android devices.

The SmallHands is only one of many different accessories sold by Felix.  We also sell iPhone cases and accessories such as our universal tablet stands.  Visit our website www.felixbrand.com for information on our other products or to order your SmallHands today.


Accessories for the iPhone 5 and 5S September 30 2015

Apple's new iPhone 6S and 6s Plus may be the new kids on the block, and the new must have Apple devices, but not everyone is ready to or wants to upgrade to these new models.  If you use your iPhone for basic tasks such as checking your email, staying up to date on your friends and family via Facebook, or listening to music, you may still own an older model like the iPhone 5 or 5S, for example.  Rest assured that we've got accessories designed to protect these devices too.

Our Handhold Wallet Case for the iPhone 5 and 5S is designed to provide protection without all of the extra bulk found in larger cases make it harder to keep in your pocket.  The tight grips on the case can hold essentials like your credit card, cash or an ID, potentially allowing you to walk around with only the items you'll need instead of your entire wallet.  The case is available in red, black, orange, white, blue, and pink, and they come with frames in either black or white.  Enjoy function without sacrificing an ounce of style with these cases made out of high strength thermoplastic.  Each Handhold Wallet Case can hold up to two cards and two bills.

Reasons to Buy the iPhone 6S September 16 2015

As we reported last week, Apple announced several new iOS devices including the iPhone 6S, 6S Plus and, most distinctively, the iPad Pro.  By now you're probably familiar with these devices and their new features.  In the case of the iPhones however, the changes are relatively modest as opposed to a reinvention, improving largely upon the 6 and 6 Plus internals.  This begs the question: is the new iPhone 6S worth your hard earned money?  Here are a few reasons why you may wish to upgrade.

The primary feature being touted in the iPhone 6S is 3D Touch.  This new technology can measure how much pressure is applied to your screen, allowing a greater range of interactivity and reducing the amount it takes to perform certain actions.  For example, a deep press on an app can bring up contextual options or be used to snap a quick selfie.

The iPhone 6S camera has also received improvements, boasting a new sensor chip that's designed to deliver more accurate colors and reduce noise in images.  If you've ever attempted to snap a photo in low light, you know that noise is a major issue, this new camera sensor makes progress in addressing this issue.

Each of the iPhone 'S' models have focused on boosting speed and overall phone performance, the iPhone 6S is no exception.  The new processor is over sixty percent faster and, per Apple, graphics have seen a ninety percent boost, which should come as welcome news to those of you who like to play graphically intensive iOS games.

The Felix Company, a stylish, customer friendly, affordable brand, brought this update to you.  To learn more about their vast assortment of iPad stands, iPhone covers, iPad covers, iPhone cases, and products for other devices like the Galaxy phone stand, contact them at 617-800-9754.

Apple to Announce New iPhones and iPad September 09 2015

Today is an exciting day for iOS users and tech enthusiasts.  Apple is holding its annual fall event this afternoon at San Francisco's Bill Graham Civic Auditorium to announce a slew of new products, including new iPhones as well as a new iPad device and potentially a new Apple TV.  Rumors suggest the new iPhones are expected to build upon the existing iPhone 6 and its larger sibling the iPhone 6 Plus.

In keeping with its previous naming conventions, the new Apple devices are expected to be called the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.  Going by past events, these devices are usually refinements and improvements on the existing Apple products instead of the more substantial changes that come with the change in number (i.e.: iPhone 5 to iPhone 6) where the company makes larger changes to the inside and overall appearance.  The new iPhones are expected to have faster processors and additional memory as well as improvements to the already well-regarded camera.

For iPad users, Apple is expected to announce the iPad Pro, a larger 12-inch tablet with an included stylus aimed at enterprise users.  This iPad will have 32 gigabytes of storage and may be priced similarly to what its lower cost laptops typically go for.

At the Felix Company, we currently sell a range of accessories for Apple's existing iOS devices, including iPad covers and stands for the iPad and iPad Mini and various iPhone cases. You can rest assured that we'll be following the event and will provide accessories for Apple's new range of devices once they've been announced and released.

The Felix Company, a stylish, customer friendly, affordable brand, brought this update to you.  To learn more about their vast assortment of iPad stands, iPhone covers, iPad covers, iPhone cases, and their generous shipping policy, contact them at 617-800-9754 or message them here.
