Must have iPhone & Android Accessories

Hi Guys Matt here in this video I will show you what I think are the must have iPhone Smart phone accessories.

Must have iPhone accessories.
iPhone being dropped from a car at 60 MPH. With Element Roll Cage Case.

In the picture above the driver is dropping an iPhone out of a car that is traveling at 65 Mph. Element Case make a case called Roll Cage because it has a protective cage on the back. The case that we use is the one in the video which is made for the iPhone 8 and 7. Element Case also make it for the iPhone X and XS. But the beauty of this case is, you can remove the cage from the back of the case and place it on the front to protect your iPhone.

Other features – Must have iPhone & Android Accessories

– Fast Tap side buttons
– Meets Military grade drop test requirements

Best way to use the Roll cage case?

How could this case be helpful? I think if you were doing some heavy duty work or demanding sports like Skiing or skateboarding you could put the roll cage on your iPhone before hand that would protect your phone from any damage.

The second Element Case is called Rally, it has also been drop tested at 65 mph.
The Rally case fits the Samsung s10e. However they also make it for the Samsung Galaxy 10 and 10 plus as well as the iPhone X and Xs. The features for the rally are the same except its got Table Top protection and Sure Grip.

To fit your Samsung phone into the case just slide it in bottom first and snap the sides into place. The other great thing about the Rally case is it allows wireless charging. So just pop it on a wireless charger and you are good to go. The Roll Cage case also charges on wireless charger as well. But you have to make sure the Cage is on the front of the phone.

Wireless chargers

While we are talking about chargers, the next must have is accessory is a wireless charger. And Tech Matte do a great standup and lay flat wireless chargers. Tech Matte design their wireless chargers in the US.

The standup change has a cool L shape. However if you prefer your phone to be laying down Tech Matte also do a flat fast wireless charger. Inside the box you get a fast wireless charging pad which allows your phone to lay flat rather than standing up.
A bed side table or coffee stand might be a better place for the Tech Matte wireless charging pad. Where as the upright charging stand might be better suited for a study or work place office.
the pad has a really nice felt type material on top which makes for a soft landing for your phone. This wireless charging pad comes with the a USB C cable

One of the great things about wireless chargers is they will work on both an iphone and an Andoird phone.
This means that you no longer need two different phone chargers to charge different phones you can use the one wireless charger and it will work on multiple phones.

In your iCloud account setting go through and toggle off anything you don’t want. Lastly go onto the iCloud.com website and check your data has been backed up. Very Important!

Forgot your Passcode iPhone X, 8, 7, 6, iPad, iPod

The step by step video on how to fix the forgotten passcode.

The Problem – Forgot your Passcode

So you have restarted your iPhone and you have forgot your Passcode. This can happen because you use your finger print scanner or face recognition software and when you restart your iPhone it asks you for your passcode. This can be really frustrating however we should be able to step you through this problem.

Step 1 – Remember the Passcode

The first and easiest thing to do is to try and remember the passcode. This might seem obvious, but it might be easier than wiping your device which is what we will have to do to get rid of it.

Step 2 – Computer with iTunes

Next up you will need a computer with iTunes. This is because you will actually need to restore the iOS software on your phone. Kind of like reloading the iPhone so it is the new as if you just brought it from Apple.

Forgot your passcode
Forgot your passcode, restore your iPhone with iTunes.

Once this is done the next step here is too put the iPhone in recovery mode screen. Depending on your model the steps to do this are different. Watch the video above for more info on recovery mode for your iPhone. You should know what your device is in recovery mode as it will come up with a lighting USB picture on your phone or it will come in with a message in iTunes that your device is in recovery mode.

Next you will have three options: Cancel, Update and Restore. Now is a good time to mention that this process will wipe any data on the iPhone including your passcode. So just try to remember your passcode one more time before going to the next step.

Next click restore and then next option will be restore and update. Then your iPhone should reset itself and you should be able to setup your device again from scratch. Good luck ! πŸ™‚

The new features for the Apple iPhone 8 are wireless charging and fast charging. The iPhone also comes with the A11 6 core CPU which powers the cameras along the back. It also comes with louder speakers, Bluetooth 2.0 and has true tone technology on the display.

The recommended retail price is $599 USD or in Australia $1149. The iPhone comes in three different colours Silver, Space Grey and Gold. You can also choose two different capacity 64 GB or 256 GB. Next up you can choose the iPhone to be carrier unlocked and go sim free.

The iPhone 8 is capable of fast charging, however it doesn’t come with a fast charging adapter out of the box. So you will have to buy that separately. Standard wired ear pods which connected to the lighting port on the bottom of the phone. Fast charging allows you to charge half the device in 30 mins.

For the first time on the iPhone 8 it comes with a glass back panel which allows you to charge the phone with wireless charging. So if you are in the market for a protective cover for the phone make sure you check that it works with the wireless charger you wish to use.

The Apple iPhone 8 comes with a 4.7 inch retina display with a resolution of 1334 x 750 which is good for 326 ppi. However its still an IPS display, however it looks fantastic and it gets about 625 nits of Max brightness.

$20 Strip Light vs $200 Strip Light – Philips Hue

This video and article will compare a $20 Strip Light vs $200 Strip Light.
The two Strip Lights I am going to compare today are the Philips Hue, which needs a network bridge and a generic $20 Strip Light. The later you can get off Amazon or eBay.
So the starting price for the generic strip lighting is $20 and the Philips Hue range will be around $200. This will depend on which country you are from.
If we take a look at the $20 strip light first. The box contains the RGB Control Box. This control box allows us to power the strip lighting and it also allows us to use the infrared remote control to change the colour of the LED strip.

The remote control is a nice feature as it allows you to start using the strip light straight away without the need to download an app on your phone. What if you don’t have a phone? πŸ™‚ However on the Philips Hue range you need to have a phone and a phone app to be able to customise the lighting.

Depending on your lighting needs this can be a hassle. I know personally it was much easier for me to pick up a remote press two buttons for my background video lighting. But for the Philips Hue I would have to pick up my phone open my phone press on the app.

The other big issue I found was that the Philips Hue app didn’t have allot of functionality and rather to get great app features you would have to pay a 3rd party fee for a better app with more functions. Personally I found this annoying for what I needed the strip light to do. But if you have a big light show production with many lights I can see how having 1 phone with an app would be very handy comparing it to maybe five or 10 different remotes.

Another benefit of the Philips Hue range over the Generic range is the quality. The Philips strip come wrapped in protective plastic and would be less likely to brake. Where as the generic brand doesn’t have this protective cover and could break.

Lastly the quality of the colour thrown out by the Philips brand is much brighter and I have been told it throws out a True colour.

iOS 12, Is it faster? Benchmark & Features

Hi guys Matt from 123myit here and in this video I will go over Apples iOS 12, Is it faster? we will find out.

Ok Guys I heard that Apple latest iOS 12 update should improve device performance rather than slow it down. So I thought I would give this upgrade a shot and test it on my older iPhone 5s and see if I notice any better performance along with checking out the new iOS 12 features.

Before upgrading I ran the Benchmark and you can see the result below with iOS 11.2.

iOS 12, Is it faster?

The results from iOS 11.2 were as follows:
Single core score, 1261
Multi cord score, 2157

To upgrade your iPhones iOS to 12 you can do this by going into Settings > Software update.
And you will read in the update information it states iOS 12 brings performance improvements and exciting new features.

Below is a picture of the Benchmark result after the upgrade to iOS 12. As you can see the Benchmark does confirm Apples claims to being faster.

iOS 12, is it faster 2

The results from iOS 12 were as follows:
Single core score, 1308
Multi cord score, 2169

For me personally I think this is a welcomed change from Apple who was always the company seen to slow down the older devices to force customers to upgrade their iOS device. Right now this means you might get a little bit more use out of older devices which is fantastic news, however lets see what happens when Apple releases iOS 13. Will they delivery the same positive boost?

Other features that have been added to iOS 12:

Notification’s screen.
Battery usage.
Measurement screen ar kit leveler tool
New animal emojis koala and t-rex
Create your own emojis
Screen time how you are using iOS device
Limits on apps
Downtime app limits
Content and privacy restrictions
For more information on iOS 12 check out Apple’s website here.
