Apple should launch their Wireless Power bank


For most users who have been on Apple ecosystem like iPhone, iPad, AirPods and Mac Laptops, the major concern would have been power or battery back-up during their travel. There are numerous third-party products available in market providing battery backup solution for all Apple devices in different formats. However, most of the third-party product solutions available in market are not recommended by Apple and has device inter-operability constraints. To overcome the constraints, Apple should launch their own version or product category of battery power-banks for its users. By the launch of battery power bank category, Apple could resolve following issues faced by users in their ecosystem. 
  • Unified power bank solution for all products: Most third part battery power banks available in market are specific to each apple devices, like mobile power banks can be used only to charge iPhones or iPads or AirPods and cannot charge MacBook’s. Apple with their lightning cable dominance, should launch their batter power bank that can charge all devices within Apple ecosystem.
  • Multiple battery solution for travel enthusiasts: For travel enthusiasts, they often need to carry numerous battery power banks to charge all their Apple devices and Apple can launch their own battery power bank that can charge all their devices at once. 
Looking forward to seeing the launch of battery power bank from Apple sooner than later and can capitalize the power bank battery with their market dominance. For more such articles, please feel free to check out the “G R Team Sites”

Longtime feature or application needed - Call recording option in iPhone



Even though iPhone operating system - iOS has ton of premium features for its users there was one major feature that the operating system feel lack over Android was the "in-built call recording option". For a long time, the Android phones were having call recording feature enabled through freeware or system integrated third party applications and the most users felt those applications were introduced as part of Android system updates due to its simplicity. However, for most iPhone or iOS users finding reliable and trusted application to enable call recording in iPhone is most complicated and tiring process. 


Existing list of applications
There may be wide range of applications available in Appstore enabling users to record calls in their iPhones and most of those applications lack one feature or the other like
  • Freeware and limited functionalities: There are applications which promises to offer application for FREE and only post installation, users may be notified of FREE trial and the features are available only in premium versions. 
  • High Functionalities and subscription fees: The other contrast list of applications available for call recording in iPhone are either have premium one-time purchase cost or may have recurring monthly subscription costs. 
Solution:
Hope, either Apple introduced call recording option as in-built system feature, or any developers launch call recording option for users with affordable pricing or through Freeware. The availability of call recording feature in iPhone will surely address its long-lasting complaints from its premium users.

Issues in Windows OS and lack of availability for locking browsers 

I have been using windows laptop for my office work and strangely I was not able to lock certain actions or password protect applications. To detail further, following are my expectations on my windows laptop and shortcomings in each of those actions. 
  • Locking browser: I wanted the browser to be locked for my employees and should be opened only when they enter password or authenticated only for specific employees. However, there are many applications available for windows and most of those applications are termed as EXE locker and lock when those applications are executed. The browser will not work like normal applications and the moment when EXE file is locked, the browser will get stuck and will not work, as it used to work. Only when the application is completely reinstalled or EXE locker is removed, the browser would work normally. 
  • Locking extensions/add-ons in browsers: There are ton of add-ons or extensions available for all browsers, promising to lock the browser at start-up or would lock specific URL with defined passwords. However, post installation most add-ons or browser extensions does not work and often gets crashed or does not serve the promised purpose. The most frustrating part is, these browser extensions or add-ons are still available in the respective browsers with high ratings, even though they do not work as detailed. 
Hope one day, a developer or even windows in-built functionality allows users to lock the browsers with passwords or passcode before start-up and it was my most sought after feature for my employees. For more such articles, please feel free to check out the articles published in "G R Team Sites"

Indian Apple music lovers were left in lurch with no update

In recent Apple WWDC held on June 2021, Apple had announced launch of Dolby Atmos support for entire music catalogue available in Apple Music. Few hours after the launch, most users across globe have started posting update on availability of Dolby Atmos features in their Apple Music catalogue. However, users in India have started to post their comments, that even though they had both Apple subscription and latest software update, they were unable to get exclusive Dolby features in their catalogue. The users understand that is may take some for rolling out the features across globe and hope it would be available sooner than later. The delay in availability of Dolby features for Indian users is a real shocker and it impacts Apple brand in the country. India being a market potential country for Apple, they should have released the features to users while it was rolled out across globe out if they had legal obstruction in releasing the feature, it should have provided at least update to its loyal users. The deleted feature update to Indian users and not a single new update about the delay would impact its brand value in the country. For more such blog posts, please feel free to check out the G R Team Sites.

My Apple Watch predictions for 2021

I was following apple’s launch events and products for a long time, with recent announcements, I was expecting few products update from Apple. Especially on Apple Watch, here are my expectations for Apple Watch.
  • All modern design: Apple Watch was not redesigned for a long time, so it was due for redesign since launch and the old design seems to be consistent across versions. 
  • Exclusive features for Watch 7: With design being same for all version of Apple watches, the time has come to have exclusive features for top end version of Apple Watch 7. This exclusive feature will be coupled with new redesign. 
  • Change in pricing: By launching Watch SE, Apple has made a statement that it is eyeing market share of low-priced wearable devices. So, in the upcoming version of Apple Watch, Apple will keep the same old design for its low-priced device and keep the features unchanged with only minor additions. 
  • New band designs: Apple wants to evolve its wearable design market and with people are sticking with Apple Watch for a long time, new bands with exclusive design will add additional source of income. So, Apple is likely to bring in new bands with exclusive designs and style options.

To resolve the issue, I was trying out diverse ways, like removed the screws under swollen battery section to allow some air to pass, tried resetting the SMC in my MacBook pro to further safeguard the battery from degrading further and reconnected the battery into the board to ensure connections are in place. However, even after trying out all measures, the service now battery indicator was flashing in my MacBook Pro and with no other options left, I was even researching in internet about the possibility of using MacBook Pro even after the swollen battery. The research was raising its flag that, similar users was warning about continued usage of swollen battery and the professionals were also recommending people not to continue usage of swollen battery. With these results, I had two options ahead of me, one is to look out for alternative battery replacement options available and the other was to completely replace the old MacBook Pro with the new one. Continue to read about my decision on swollen battery in my MacBook Pro in the blog posts published in “G R Team Sites”
