    Best Wireless Chargers

    Looking to charge your new iPhone wirelessly? Here’s a great article on some different chargers you might want to pick up. They have the cheap ones, all the way up to luxury.

    Apple’s wireless charging pad hasn’t been released and there’s no price listed. Rumors say it’s going to be $199. That’s nearly triple the most expensive one. Yikes. #appletax? Let’s hope not.

    New TapMeasure App

    This is such a cool idea! Measure everything with your phone without ever pulling out a tape measure! If you’re like me and constantly misplacing your tape measure, you’ll love this. It’s not going to work with all iPhones as it requires the newest processors, but if you’ve got an iPhone 7 or later, you’re in luck.

    Do you ever read an article online and there are more ads, “relevant content” and other junk on the page than the words you came to the page to read?

    Enter, Reader View. It strips out all the other junk not relating to the article, so it’s just text and the included photos. No ads or anything  :) Try it out in Safari now by finding an article, then to the left of the URL, clicking the reader icon.

    Chrome doesn’t have this feature by default, but you can just click this link to get an extension that will add the function with a click of a button.

     

    Stream Music Directly to Your Watch

    Have the new Apple Watch with LTE? With the new update, you can now stream music to it without your phone for up to 7 hours. There’s a caveat though, it only works with Apple Music. Spotify users, you’re out of luck. At least for now.
