How To Purchase iPhone 7 Unlocked Version Online

We are here to tell you how to purchase iPhone 7 unlocked version online and by the end of this article you would be ready to order or buy your favorite new iPhone 7 online.

How To Purchase iPhone 7 Unlocked
Buying online is not be a big deal for you, the problem is to clear your mind, what you have to buy and what specifications you want.

Just explain your thoughts to yourself, what do you want and buy it online directly from the Apple store or you can choose these four carriers if you live in the USA. The four carriers include Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile.

The plans of these carriers are almost same, as they are giving you iPhone 7 at full retail price online or you can choose monthly installment plan.

In monthly payment plan, you have to pay $27.41 per month for 24 months for the first iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus you have to pay $31.20 per month for 24 months.

Now let’s talk about clearing your mind. Look, iPhone has ditched 16 GB option, and we think it is a good step as three to four GB wasted in system memory. So, you have storage options of 32 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB.

The color options you have got are Jet Black, Black, Silver, Rose Gold, and Gold. But remember the Jet Black color is available only in 128 GB and 256 GB.

Count yourself fortunate if you get your hands on the new Jet Black color as people go for it from the first day of releasing; as a result, this color is out of stock at many Apple Stores.

If the Jet Black is not available, then select among the other four colors you have got. Just to get out of this Jet Black craze, this color can be abraded after some time because this is the polished color and Apple itself suggests using the cover for it on their website.

How to Connect Your iPhone or iPad to Your TV

Sometimes even a 10-inch screen is just too small. Fortunately, it’s easy enough to connect your iPhone or iPad to any recent HDTV for a bigger-screen media experience. Here’s our guide, from the simplest to the most complex solutions.

how-to-connect-your-iphone-or-ipad-to-your-tv

Connect With a Cable
By far, the simplest way to connect your iPhone or iPad to your TV is to use Apple’s Digital AV Adapter, which is a cable that plugs your Apple device to your TV’s HDMI port. You’ll also need a standard HDMI cable—any one will do, so just buy the least expensive one you can find.

There are two models of the Digital AV Adapter. One is forLightning devices, and the other is for older phones and tablets with 30-pin ports, so make sure to choose the right one.

Connect your iPhone or iPad and TV with the cable, and switch the TV’s input to the port the cable is plugged into. Your TV will become a duplicate of the connected device’s screen. With the iPad 2 or later and iPhone 4s or later, you’ll get that in 1080p HD.

Now you can play your iTunes videos, Netflix movies, or whatever else you want on your TV.

Connect With Apple TV
Maybe you don’t want a pesky wire between your iPhone and your TV. The easiest way to connect wirelessly is with Apple’s own media extender, Apple TV.

Once your Apple TV is set up, make sure it’s connected to the same home Wi-Fi network as your iPhone or iPad. Swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone or iPad’s screen to find the AirPlay option. Tap on it, then select your Apple TV. Your Apple TV will start streaming whatever’s on your device’s screen.

One warning: In very crowded Wi-Fi environments, AirPlay video might break up or stutter. In that case, you’ll need to use a cable.

Connect With a DLNA App
If you have a recent Internet-enabled HDTV, it probably supports DLNA, a generic form of media streaming available on many different manufacturers’ products. You can stream unprotected music and video files (in other words, files stored in iTunes other than music and videos from the iTunes Store) using the third-party app ArkMC, available from the App Store for $4.99.

Connect your iPhone or iPad and your HDTV to the same home network. Open the ArkMC app on your device. Tap the “Arkuda DMS” option, then choose music, photos, or videos. On the Select Media Renderer screen, choose your TV.

If your TV doesn’t show up on the list, you may need to activate its DLNA function. Go to the TV’s Internet connection menu and look for an option to stream from a PC or home server. That’s DLNA. The Arkuda DMS folder may show up on your TV’s screen at that point, and you can navigate to a file and play it.

Connect With an Android TV Stick
There are more arcane, hackerish ways to connect your iPhone or iPad to your TV. For instance, you can get an Android powered TV stick, plug it into the back of your TV, install the Kodi media server app (formerly known as XBMC), and the stick will be able to play unprotected music and video from the built-in apps on your device by using the AirPlay button. It won’t support screen mirroring or protected video streaming.

In my experience, though, this approach is typically a nightmare. The sticks are slow, buggy, and unreliable, and Kodi support tends to break.

While we haven’t reviewed Android TV sticks. I suggest you look at this roundup from Laptop Mag if you want to go this route. Here’s a hint about what a pain they are: The review of the highest-rated product includes the phrase, “Once we downloaded an updated version of the device’s official firmware from geekbuying.com and flashed the MK808B.”

While this is definitely a way to save money over an Apple TV (and the stick can run any Android app on your TV, which is cool), what’s your time worth? Probably more than the $50 difference.

How to Hack Wi-Fi Passwords

Chances are you have a Wi-Fi network at home, or live close to one (or more) that tantalizingly pop up in a list whenever you boot up the laptop. The problem is, if there’s a lock next to the name, that indicates security for the Wi-Fi network is turned on. Without the password or passphrase, you’re not going to get access to that network, or that sweet, sweet Internet that goes with it.

how-to-hack-wifi-password

Perhaps you forgot the password on your own network, or don’t have neighbors willing to share the Wi-Fi goodness. You could just go to a café and buy a latte and use the “free” Wi-Fi there. Download an app for your phone like WiFi-Map, and you’ll have a list of over 2 million hotspots with free Wi-Fi for the taking (including some passwords for locked Wi-Fi connections, if they’re shared by any of the app’s 7 million users).

But there are other ways to get back on the wireless, though some of them require such extreme patience and waiting, that café idea is going to look pretty good.

hack-wifi-password-reset-button

Reset the Router

Before you do this, just try to log into the router first. From there, you can easily reset your wireless password if you’ve forgotten it.

The problem is when you don’t know the password for the router, either. (They’re not the same thing, unless you set it up that way). Resetting the router is about as brute force a method as you get, and it only works if you have physical access to the router.

Almost every router in existence has a recessed reset button it. Push it with a pen or unfolded paperclip, hold it for about 10 seconds, and the router will change to the factory settings.

If you’ve got a router that came from your Internet service provider, check the stickers before a reset—they might have printed the router and Wi-Fi passwords (sometimes called the key) right on the hardware.

Once it’s reset, you need another password (plus a username) to access the router itself. Generally you can do this in a Web browser of any PC attached to the router via Ethernet—you’ll need that since the reset probably killed any potential Wi-Fi connection you had going in.

The URL to type is either 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, or some variation. Once you’re asked for a username/password, what do you do? Check your manual. Which you probably lost or threw away. So instead, go to RouterPasswords.com. The site exists for one reason: to tell people the default username/password on just about every router ever created.

hack-wifi-password-routerpasswords-com

You’ll need the router’s model number, but that’s easy enough to find on the back or bottom. You’ll quickly see a pattern among router makers of having the username of admin and a password of password. Since most people are lazy and don’t change an assigned password, you could try it before hitting the reset button. (But c’mon, you’re better than that—change the password once you’re in the router’s menus in your Web browser.)

Once you’ve accessed the router interface, go to the Wi-Fi settings, turn on the wireless networks, and assign them strong but easy-to-recall passwords. After all, you don’t want to share with neighbors without your permission.

Crack the Code

You didn’t come here because the headline said “reset the router,” though. You want to know how to crack the password on a Wi-Fi network.

Searching on “wi-fi password hack,” or other variations, nets you a lot of links—mostly for software on sites where the adware and bots and scams are pouring like snake oil. Download them at your own risk, for Windows PCs especially. Better to have a PC that you can afford to get effed up a bit if you go that route. I had multiple attempts with tools I found just get outright deleted by my antivirus before I could even try to run the EXE installation file.

Or, create a system just for this kind of thing, maybe dual-boot into a separate operating system that can do what’s called “penetration testing”—a form of offensive approach security, where you examine a network for any and all possible paths of breach. Kali Linux is a Linux distribution built for just that purpose. You can run Kali Linux off a CD or USB key without even installing it to the hard drive. Another option is BackTrack Linux—they’re actually both from the same developers, but Kali is the “polished” version. Both are free and come with all the tools you’d need to crack a network.

If you don’t want to install a whole OS, then you could try the two tried-and-true tools of Wi-Fi hackers.

Aircrack has been around for years, going back to when Wi-Fi security was only based on WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). WEP was weak even back in the day, and was supplanted in 2004 by WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access). The latest Aircrack-ng 1.2—labeled as a “set of tools for auditing wireless networks,” so it should be part of any network admin’s toolkit—will take on cracking WEP and WPA-PSK keys.

Aircrack-ng comes with full documentation, but it’s not going to be that simple. To crack a network you also need to have the right kind of Wi-Fi adapter in your computer, one that supports packet injection. You need to be comfortable with the command line (running things using CMD) and have a lot of patience. Your Wi-Fi adapter and Aircrack have to gather a lot of data to get anywhere close to decrypting the passkey on the network you’re targeting. It could take a while.

If you prefer a graphical user interface (GUI), there is KisMAC-ng, or there was. The website was not working as of the writing of this article. While KisMAC can crack some keys with the right adapter installed, it’s mainly known as a “sniffer” for seeking out Wi-Fi networks. It’s the kind of thing we don’t need much of these days, since our phones and tablets do a pretty good job of showing us every since Wi-Fi signal in the air around us. Also on the Mac: Wi-Fi Crack. To use them or Aircrack-ng on the Mac, you need to install them using MacPorts, a tool for installing command-line products on the Mac.

wi-fi-crack

Cracking stronger WPA/WPA2 passwords and passphrases is the real trick these days. Reaver is the one tool that looks to be up to the task (and it’s part of the BackTrack Linux distro). You’ll need that command-line comfort again to work with it, or you’ll have to spend $65 for Reaver Pro, a hardware device that works with Windows and Mac. After two to 10 hours of trying brute force attacks, Reaver should be able to reveal a password… but it’s only going to work if the router you’re going after has both a strong signal and WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) turned on. WPS is the feature where you can push a button on router, another button on a Wi-Fi device, and they find each other and link auto-magically, with a fully encrypted connection. It’s also the “hole” through which Reaver crawls. It can generally break the code in about 24 hours.

Even if you turn off WPS, sometimes it’s not completely off, but that’s your only recourse if you’re worried about hacks on your own router. Or, get a router that doesn’t support WPS.

How to Stay Safe and Increase Your Privacy on the Internet

Internet freedom is a concept that many people take for granted. It feels so commonplace that many forget how easy it is for that freedom to result in a loss of privacy or worse. As the internet becomes even more entangled with everyday life, it becomes more and more important to be wary of how you are protecting yourself and your information online. It is not enough to trust websites, browsers, and internet service providers to do it for you. In fact, you should not trust them because their default privacy settings are lacking to say the least. As an empowered internet user, it is your responsibility to take as much control of your privacy as you can. Here are five ways to do just that:

child-privacy-internet-safety-conference

1. Change Your Browser Settings

Every browser has configuration settings for privacy and security. Head to browser settings and make the following changes to improve your security: Set your browser settings to avoid accepting ‘cookies’ from sites you have not visited before. It is generally safe to accept cookies from sites you visit, but you want the option to reject them in the even you click on a bad link. Next, turn on the settings that clear cookies when you end your session or close the window. If you are looking for a plug-in with maximum security, check out the HTTPS Everywhere plug-in created by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It provides encryption between your computer and the server you are connecting to. This means it keeps your browsing as close to private as possible.

2. Change Your Social Media Settings

Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram all have privacy settings that are updated regularly for both the desktop site and the mobile app. If you have not looked at your settings in the last year, now is a good time to do so. Head the Privacy Settings section on each of your social media profiles. Decide how much information you want visible to strangers, and update the settings to match your wishes. Facebook’s settings can be more difficult to navigate. Be sure to use the option to view your profile as a stranger to make sure you got everything right. Be mindful that blocking strangers from seeing your data does not protect your privacy completely. Read through your privacy agreements so you know what social media providers share with your consent. Then, tailor what you post online to match what you are comfortable with them having and sharing with other organizations.

3. Add Two-Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication can mean the difference between safe data and complete and total destruction. Add it to your primary email addresses and to any other application that offers this service. It might not always be convenient, but it will keep your accounts safe. At the very least, you will be the first to know if someone is hacking your account. If two-factor identification does not work for you, create strong passwords and change them regularly. Use a secure password manager to keep track of all your passwords in one place and keep your accounts secure. For added security, you should be using a VPN to mask your IP address, which means intruders won’t be able to locate you. Used with two-factor authentication, this strategy can dramatically increase your online security.

4. Install Software Protection

Spyware and malware are two huge threats to internet security. You should not be online unless you have some type of protection from these software threats. Install reputable anti-spyware products on both your computers and your mobile devices. You can choose from free open-source products or paid subscriptions. Choose the product that best suit your needs and provides the features you need. If you have a lot of sensitive information or participate in certain activities, be sure to choose protection tailored to your needs. Help your anti-virus and anti-spyware products help you by practicing safe surfing. Do not click on strange pop-up windows. Steer clear of weird links. Close windows that ask unexpected questions. Finally, be sure that you are downloading reputable applications from reputable sources.

5. Keep Your Software Up to Date

Software updates present themselves at the least convenient times. But updating your system in a timely manner helps protects your computer against threats. Many updates come with fixes to vulnerabilities in your software found by the software provider or by less savory characters. These vulnerabilities are a problem because criminals can take advantage of any vulnerabilities present and use them as a way into your computer and your data. Software updates address these changes and keep your information protected. Prevent attackers from exploiting vulnerabilities by keeping your software updated. There is no way to fully protect yourself from having your information unwittingly stolen by criminals or sold to advertisers or third parties. But using these five fixes and being aware of what information you provide to whom can go a long way towards protecting yourself and your private information.

How to tell if an iPhone is Locked or Unlocked to a specific network

When buying a new (or second-hand) iPhone you should always check that it is unlocked. An unlocked iPhone can be used on any phone network, and is worth more money than a locked iPhone. This feature looks at how to check if an iPhone is locked or not.

iphone-locked-unlock-network

How can I tell if an iPhone is unlocked? Does it say in the Settings somewhere?

It’s important to know how to check an iPhone’s network status. Apple iPhones come in two flavours: locked and unlocked. An unlocked phone can be used on any phone network, while a locked phone can only be used on the network the phone is locked to.

Who has iPhone 7 in stock? Find out where to order an iPhone 7 today. Click here.

An iPhone that can be used on any network is described as “unlocked”. The iPhones you pay full-price for (typically from the Apple Store) are unlocked by default. But an iPhone bought from a network, usually as part of an on-going network plan, is locked. This is normally for a set period, 18 or 24 months, and the cost of your contract covers part of the cost of the iPhone device.

Which iPhones are locked and unlocked?
It’s not possible to tell, just by looking at the handset, whether an iPhone is locked or unlocked. Apple does not allow other phone companies to brand iPhone devices. You don’t get Three- or EE-branded iPhones, for example.

To confuse matters even further, some phones are locked when sold, but are unlocked at a later date when the original owner has paid for the initial contract.

check-if-iphone-is-unlocked

The simplest method of checking if an iPhone is locked or unlocked, and the one we’ll use first, involves a quick look in the Settings app.

You’ll need to be able to power up the iPhone and access the cellular settings (you may need to enter the four-digit passcode). Follow these steps to check in iOS if an iPhone is unlocked:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap Mobile (if the device is set to American English it will say “Cellular” instead).
  3. Check for an option named Mobile Data Network (or Cellular Data Network)

If you see an option for Mobile Data Network then your iPhone is most likely unlocked. This option should not appear on locked iPhones.

This method is reportedly not 100 per cent effective, however. If you need to know for sure – if you’re buying a second-hand iPhone, for example, and want to know if you’re paying a fair price – you should use a SIM card to check that it is unlocked. We’ll walk through that method next.

How to check if an iPhone is unlocked using a SIM card

It’s best to have two SIM cards, from different networks. One is usually the SIM card you own, and then other will be the one in the iPhone. Follow these steps to check that the iPhone is unlocked:

1. Make a phone call using the current SIM card. Make sure it connects.
2. Power off the iPhone. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and use the Slide to Power Off option to switch off the iPhone.
3. Use the SIM-card ejector tool (or a paper clip) to eject the SIM card from the iPhone.
4. Insert your new SIM card.
5. Press the Sleep/Wake button to wake up the iPhone.
6. Make a phone call. Check that the iPhone can connect a call using the new SIM card.

If the phone call does not connect with the new SIM card, then the iPhone is locked.

How to Connect an Android Smartphone to Your TV

It’s not so difficult to screen photos, videos, or cast your phone or tablet display to your television. If you haven’t tried it yet, we’ve got an easy guide here on how to connect your smartphone or tablet with a TV. Read on for the details.

how-to-connect-an-android-smartphone-to-your-tv

Connect an Android smartphone with a TV: getting started

It’s pretty easy to connect your smartphone to a Smart TV directly via Wi-Fi. This allows you to stream different media from Android devices. Among the major Smart TV manufacturers are Samsung, Sony, Philips, LG and Panasonic. Their Smart TVs provide the possibility to connect smartphones and tablets via Wi-Fi onto the same network for streaming. Some manufacturers also allow a direct wireless connection to the Smart TV. For example, Sony and Samsung’s newer TVs provide “screen mirroring”, allowing you to display whatever’s on your smartphone screen.

It’s pretty straightforward to transfer photos, videos and stream Youtube to a Smart TV with Android smartphones and tablets. While the Youtube app for Android can be easily connected to a TV via the streaming icon, displaying photos and videos might be a little more effort. Where the old Gallery app requires you to send each image individually via the TV share button, this function is no longer available in the Google Photos app.

Connect an Android smartphone with a TV: the right app can help

Free streaming apps like ‘iMediaShare – Photos & Music’ come in handy. They let you transfer photos, videos and music from your smartphone or tablet to Smart TV or other DLNA-enabled devices, such as sound systems and set-top boxes. With iMediaShare, you can select by file type and also play videos in automatic succession on your TV. Another option is to install Android apps on the TV itself.

Download Here iMediaShare on GooglePay Store

Casting over a wireless network is usually associated with delayed playback on Smart TVs. This doesn’t matter so much with casting images, but this can make transmitting video a little annoying.

Connect an Android smartphone with a TV: television as smartphone display

Bear in mind that you mightn’t always be able to stream content from your phone to the TV via wireless connectivity. Anyone who wants to avoid problems like this should run a direct connection to the Smart TV, or regular TV. You can do this with a smartphone or tablet via HDMI input.

While a compact HDMI output for tablets is hard to find, whether in the form of mini-HDMI or micro HDMI, you won’t need this for your smartphone. Most mobile phones simply don’t have enough space for chunky adapters. This problem can be solved with the USB port expander Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL). MHL 3.0 even allows HDMI transmission of 4K content from mobile devices to Ultra-HD televisions.

Connect an Android smartphone with a TV: SlimPort as MHL alternative

Google, along with other phone manufacturers, has not backed MHL, but rather SlimPort. With SlimPort, USB is used in combination with a separate adapter cable to connect to a TV or projector via HDMI. Unfortunately, that was only until the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. Neither still supports HDMI output, SlimPort or MHL. A list of SlimPort-compatible devices includes smartphones like the BlackBerry Priv, the LG G4 and LG V10 and various tablets in Amazon’s Kindle series, as well as the Google Nexus 7.

Connect an Android smartphone with a TV: what you can also try

If neither wireless streaming or MHL/SlimPort are a solution to connect your Android smartphone to the TV, then perhaps you can simply plug it into the USB port of the TV. In this way, stored photos and videos can be also displayed on the TV from the internal memory or microSD card. Otherwise the TV could be given a boost with the help of set-top boxes, or media sticks that act as a bridge between Smart TV and smartphone.

Then there’s the Google Chromecast. This device allows you to cast content from your Android smartphone or tablet right to the TV. All you need to run it with is the Chromecast app, which you’ll find for free in the Play Store, and plug the Chromecast into the HDMI port of your TV.

There are many apps for The Chromecast, such as video streaming behemoth Netflix. And whosoever likes to show off photos or videos to friends can stream content via the ‘AllCast’ app. The second generation of Chromecast can be found in the Google Play Store for around $39 Euro.
