Thread Spotlight: What are some good Bluetooth headphones?

Thread Spotlight: What are some good Bluetooth headphones?

I got a pair of Beats Solo HD headphones for my birthday and they’re pretty good, but I just think these headphones are overpriced and overhyped just because they’re Dr. Dre’s. Plus I want wireless Bluetooth headphones more, so anyone have any recommendations for Bluetooth headphones around $150?

I would personally recommend checking out our dedicated audiophiles section within the iFans forums, a useful place to learn about recommended headphones to choose from. Our reviews editor Marcus Nguyen has also featured a fair share of headphones over the past few years.

How is your battery life on iOS 7.1?

How is your battery life on iOS 7.1?

I have a regular iPhone 5, Wi-Fi on all day. No Bluetooth. The usual turned off features. Pulled from the charger at 9:00am and now at 3:26 I have 97%. I usually have around 85% by this time of day. Wow.

Apple does not specifically mention that iOS 7.1 improves battery life, but it appears that subtle changes to the mobile platform have been very positive for some iPhone and iPad users. This user in particular has seen his battery life drain as much as 12 percent less during the same amount of time he used to run a previous iOS version. I’m going to go on a tangent and say that perhaps it has something to do with the fact that people cannot jailbreak this version, leading to more users running and getting better returns from stock software.

Thread spotlight: Best way to update Cydia apps?

Hey everyone. I used to use AptBackup to back up/restore Cydia apps. Now it doesn’t support iOS 7. I’ve tried PkgBackup (not so good either). It would crash often. Any other suggestions?
