I also got some cheap 3 Meter cables from Aliexpress and it is lengthy and nice, but within 2 months it got spoilt at the connector end - needs to be bent in a specific way for it to charge the phone...

Such cables might not fit if you use bumper or thicker cases. Only the connectors with standard shape connectors work i that case. So do check. I had to do some jugaad on a similar cable i bought.

Yup,you need to be careful if you have a bumper. I remember a friend who had faced a similar issue, it were earphones in his case though.

Just get Amazon Basics cable. They fit most bumpers. Also, you get an option of getting 3 feet or 6 feet cable. However, I don't know if Amazon Basics accessories are available on Amazon India Portal or not.

Hi,

What all data can I transfer (e.g call logs? SMS?) from android to iPhone? Planning to borrow my wife's iPhone for a few days (!!) tonight. If there's a pre-existing good migration link, please guide me to it.

Folks,

I have setup Ios9 beta version on my iphone and using it ever since it has been open for public. Recently there was a new version of the software which was sent to the phone as a push message. But I by mistake selected cancel instead of pressing ok. Now I am not sure how to get the update.

Do any of you guys know how to get this version of IOS?

The update notification was a goof up by apple, no such update actually came out. Like you, most other people running the beta received a notification, but once they went into the software update option in settings, there was no update.
The next update you will receive is the official ios 9 directly

Just an overview, They launched,

New iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, major additions are the 3D force touch, A9 processor, camera now is 12MP and a new rose gold color, etc. Pricing will be the same as last years iPhone 6 and 6 plus.

Ios 9 Will be available from 16th September onwards.

Major iOS software upgrade for the apple watch.

New iPad pro with a resolution better than even a mac pro with retina, Also comes with a pen.

New apple TV.

I guess that was most of it.

Ipad pro is 12.9inch height of previous ipad is the width of the current ipad (4:3) ratio

Also comes with a pen..
Its not a pen its a pencil
The apple pencil is a battery powered device with some great capabilities along with the 3D touch
A cap at the non writing end has to be removed to see the lightning connector. This can be connected to the ipad for charging.

Iphone can now take 4k videos
It takes live photos which are photos with motion and/or sound
There's a new program in US where you get a new iPhone each year
The screen flashes a bright true tone shade when you take selfies acting as a light source for better selfies

So there was an ios beta update after all. I got an alert late last night that IOS9.1 beta version is released. I did download and install but yet to find out changes. Guess most of them are very subtle!
