Most of those who complain own the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, however, there are some iPhone 7 users with the same problem. It is currently unknown if the problem is connected with the hardware of software. Apple hasn’t yet commented on the issue.

Hopefully, Apple will hear the users and investigate the issue. Since iOS 10.1 is already being tested by the developers and public testers, chances are, that the company will include a fix for this problem in the next update. If it is not the hardware that is faulty. In this case, the things won’t be so simple.

Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 at a media event on September 7th. Currently, the handset is available in the USA and a number of other countries.

Here’s How to Force Restart iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus [Video]



Apple has changed the buttons that are used to force restart the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. On older devices, to perform a force restart it was required to press and hold the Sleep/Wake button together with the Home button. This combination doesn’t work on the newest iPhones because the Home button is no longer a physical one.

To force reboot the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, one has to press and hold the Sleep/Wake button along with the Volume Down button. There’s no need to test this yourself if your device works properly, just keep in mind the combination has been changed.

Below you can take a look at the short video shot by iClarified demonstrating the new method of force restart.

Apple announced the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at a media event on September 7th. The pre-orders for both handsets went live on September 9th and the official release of the updated devices took place on September 16th.

iFixit Post Apple Watch Series 2 Teardown



Aside from letting us know about the internals of the iPhone 7 Plus, the iFixit team has also performed a teardown of the Apple Watch Series 2 that went on sale in a number of countries together with new iPhones.

As noted by the experts, the smartwatch is much better protected from water. Furthermore, it has a new OLED display with integrated Force Touch, updated GPS, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.0 hardware. There’s also a new S2 chip, better 273 mAh battery as well as some other improved components. The size of the wearable device is the same as the one the original Apple Watch has.

The smartwatch is packed with small parts, so disassembling it is quite a tough task. Similar to the first-generation Apple Watch, the 2016 model is rather difficult to repair, so its repairability score is 6 out 10.

Below you can take a look at the video and several photos of the teardown posted by iFixit.
