That's a nice price, considering I picked up a 128 GB, 2 months ago, for Rs 58410/-

Hi team. I have recently got myself an Amazon Firestick. I give my I phone 7's internet via hotspot to it. It works seamlessly. I wanted to know how do I mirror my phone to the firestick,Since I want to watch my Airtel Tv app on my TV. I am not able to download the Airtel Tv app on the firestick. Can I do both things (hotspot and screen mirroring) at the same time.

Try this and let us know if it works. But you will need both your phone and TV on the same wi-fi network.


  1. Install AirReceiver from the Amazon App Store. You can do this by going to the search tab and searching for the application.
  2. Once installed, launch the app and check the box which says AirPlay option.
  3. Make sure that your devices are connected to the same network. On your iPhone, enable AirPlay by opening your Control Center and clicking on “AirPlay Mirroring” or “Screen Mirroring”.
  4. From the available devices, choose your TV to begin the mirroring process.

Apple has released an update for older devices including the iPhone 4S - 9.3.6 & for iPhone 5- 10.3.4 This update is also for older iPads.

According to Apple, these devices will have issues with GPS & maintaining time post Nov-19. iCloud syncing may also be affected. More here: https://www.macrumors.com/2019/07/22...iphones-ipads/

My iPhone X suddenly lost the battery capacity, and started showing "service" under battery option, this was last week. Had apple care active till Nov 19, so took it to service centre on Saturday and they said it would take 5-6 days to get back to me. Yesterday they called and informed I have been issued a replacement phone.

Surprised to see a brand new device (alone) issued and the apple care also is updated automatically. Coconut app says this device is manufactured less than 3 months back, so assume its brand new and looks spot less and came with screen cover and all.

Apple care again has treated me well, definitely recommending the same for year two of iPhone ownership.

How new is your phone? Less than a year? My 7 is towards the end of its extended 2nd year warranty and battery is below 80% and showing 'Service'.
Considering whether to go Authorised or Unauthorised.

Mine was bought on day 1 of Indian launch so Nov 17?

Take it to authorised centre asap and they should replace the battery free.

Does this help?

My wife's 5S battery seems to have conked off. I had got a replacement of the device because of a screen issue last year, so the new one is just over a year old. But of course it is out of warranty. I wonder whether it is normal for the battery to go bad so soon.

Any idea how much it would cost to get the battery replaced? Authorised or unauthorised. I do not want to get a spurious battery and put ourselves in danger though.

I have my doubts. Maybe your phone genuinely had an issue,which is why they replaced it. Battery degradation is not covered under warranty as such, it being a consumable. Will try my luck and report. Warranty expires 17 August,so worth giving it a shot.

If they cover under battery replacement program about 2k, if not about 7-8 k.

If it is under apple care they should. Report the issue through apple support, get a ticket registered and then use them to schedule visit to nearest physical service centre.

There have been some issues with batteries of certain iPhone. My current iPhone 6s I bought in India around 2015 or thereabouts. Last year the battery was replaced free of charge by apple under a world wide free upgrade. My battery was losing its charge to quickly. It was a problem related to a specific bath of iPhones 6s. Check the Apple support pages if your particular phone might be eligible for any free battery replacements

That window is closed since Nov/Dec 18 if I remember correct. But apple does honour requests if warranty or apple care cover is there.

Thanks for this. Chatted with them, got a remote diagnostic test done. Support informed that I need to take-in my device for battery change. I asked him, if the same is covered under warranty and he said yes, provided technician verifies it, etc etc.
Asked him to book me an appointment, which he did. Let's see how it goes at the service centre. So Far So Good.
