Suspect of Crackling sound in my AirPods Pro

 

I got my AirPods Pro during the first year of the launch and was fortunate enough to experience the sound quality during the initial days. However, post few months of my purchase there was an unexpected announcement from Apple that the initial batch of AirPods Pro had manufacturing defect and the product would be replaced for FREE. Post this announcement, I become suspicious on my product as well, however I convinced that my product was working fine, and the disturbances was due to external factors. The initial suspicious activities and the convincing factors are as follows
  • Right Side AirPods Pro Ear tips had issues in seal: So, when I was trying out Apple’s in-built Ear Tips test, the outcome was often error and it had suggested that to change the ear tip size or align the AirPods pro properly in the ear. Initially, I had searched about this concern in internet and often found that the suggestions were to slightly re-align the AirPods pro or tryout the memory foam tips due to ear size differences among users. Since these were convincing reasons, I had ruled out possible manufacturing defects and continued to use the product with its flaw.
  • Occasional crackling sound while hearing music: The other annoying issue that I had encountered while using my AirPods Pro was that I used to hear some annoying hustling sound while listening to music and during while I was at my work room. Since, my work room either had a slow-moving fan or air conditioner running, I assumed that the hustling sound may be due to its background noise.
The above concerns and convincing factors made me to use the AirPods pro without thinking about the manufacturing defect. To read more about how I identified my AirPods Pro manufacturing defect, please feel free to check out the articles published in “G R Team Sites”

Complications due to E-Sim and my concerns


I have been using iPhone 11 for a while and have been utilizing its dual sim capabilities, one mobile connection with e-sim and another with physical sim card. However, at times I feel nervy about using e-sim as my primary connection and how it will impact me if my iPhone dies or cannot be accessed due to accidental damage. Following are concerns while using E-sim on any mobile phone
  • Accidental damage or Phone software corrupted: If there are incidents where if you had your phone dropped or the software had corrupted midway through a software update, then there is no option to use the mobile number and entire personal banking system gets interrupted. As with introduction of two-factor authentication, there is no option to perform financial transaction without authentication through mobile and there is no alternative option available. 
  • Unavailability of temporary E-Sim solution: There are no temporary solution available if the e-sim profile was deleted accidentally or if iPhone was not available for short duration. There should have been a temporary solution to at least make critical banking transactions and important calls during the emergency. 
Hope with the advancement of new technologies and mobile solutions, the above e-sim complications are addressed, and e-sim becomes next big innovation on mobile technology. To read more about technology articles, please feel free to check out “G R Team Sites”

iPhone online backup to OneDrive or Google Drive or other cloud providers


I have been using iPhone as my primary mobile device for past few years and there have been couple of accidental incidents, where my phone was dead and had to depend on my laptop backups to restore my important files. Apple has however provided iCloud backup option to restore important files and there are few constraints associated with the solution. The following are my concerns, while using the default iCloud backups as my preferred solution and how it impacts the users while relying on cloud for the recovery solution.
  • Expensive and Limited storage option: iCloud+ storage plans are often priced higher than the competitors and offer extremely limited storage plan for the users. With recent launch of iPhone 13, the base storage has been increased to 128GB and the base plan of iCloud+ comes with 50GB, which is completely baseless and distrust for iPhone users. Apple could have easily made some exceptions to its loyal iPhone users like enabling users to store unlimited photos taken in iPhone and enable users to store unlimited iWork (Pages, Numbers & Keynote) documents in iCloud. 
  • Too many cloud subscriptions and charges: Being an iPhone user does not mean that everyone in the family have flexibility of using iPhone as their preferred device and most family members prefer using Android phones. With Google disabling unlimited Photo’s backup option and mobile phones becoming primary camera in the family, it becomes difficult to have iCloud+ as the preferred storage option due its premium price and lesser storage option. For such instances, Apple should enable the option for its users to choose their preferred Cloud backup option, so they can have flexibility of having unified cloud subscription plan across the family.
However, rather than addressing above concerns, Apple chose to ignore its voice of the users and charge premium price on lower cloud storage option. Get to know more such articles from "G R Team Sites".

Original mobile phone screen replacement is always the best possibility



Short recap: 
My Wife accidentally broken her mobile screen during COVID pandemic and with limited options available due to lockdown restrictions, I had to prefer replacing broken screen with duplicate screen. However, the replacement did not work as expected and eventually the duplicate screen also broke within few weeks during small drop. So, it had left me with square one to lookout for practical choice. There were two options available, either replace mobile phone with new upgraded mobile phone or check out the OEM for original mobile phone screen replacement.

Finally found resolution for broken mobile screen
After much thought on choice of preferred possibility for my wife's broken mobile screen, I wanted to check with OEM for the actual cost for replacing broken mobile screen and any possibility of shipping from remote location. To my surprise, the OEM was affirmative on the available option and was quoting price, which was affordable when compared to the old duplicate screen. Finally decided on replacing the broken mobile screen with the OEM screen and started the process for replacement. The process was little slower and was taking its own time for movement from one stage to the other. 

Conclusion
The mobile phone reached me after taking its own time and I was anxious about the final output. Finally, the mobile phone screen was replaced with the original screen and the mobile phone was performing like it was new. After a bit of struggle and exploring affordable options, I came to conclusion that no matter how cheap the duplicate screen or how expensive the OEM screen was, the original screen replacement should always be the preferred option for users.

Lack of features in OneDrive post migration from Google Drive

It has been few weeks since I opted for OneDrive as my preferred online cloud storage choice and wanted to detail my experience to my readers. Initially I was excited to use OneDrive as my preferring online cloud platform and later had few hiccups here and there. Following are my observation while using OneDrive as my only source of online cloud platform. 
  • No Option to exclude pictures from specific folders: I have around 20GB of my old office files and when I move my office files into OneDrive, the files are copied with ease and with no questions asked. However, I later noticed that my office files had few pictures or images inside the folders and these pictures are moved into overall photos album. When I scroll through my old personal photos, I get distracted and feel unpleasant by looking at those office file images. There is choice available in OneDrive to mark the specific folder to exclude the images to be synchronized to the photos album. 
  • Lack of Chromecast support in iOS OneDrive: As said in my earlier articles, I wanted my preferred online cloud platform to support Chromecast, so that it was easier cast my old images or files into my TV for work or while get-together with family. Before, opting into OneDrive as my preferred online cloud platform, I was checking about Chromecast support and found that Microsoft had re-introduced those features into its application. I double checked with my wife's android phone to ensure that availability of Chromecast option and did not feel the need to do the same in my iPhone. Only after moving all my old files and photos to OneDrive, I noticed that the Chromecast feature is not available on iOS devices and Microsoft is yet to announce the support for the same. 
Hope Microsoft considers about suggestions and addresses the concerns at the earliest, so unaccustomed users like me, who migrated to OneDrive as primary online cloud storage option feel comfortable and renew the subscriptions for the upcoming years.

OneDrive inches ahead than Google Photos 

The need for finding reliable online cloud storage choice has grown stronger with announcement from Google that photos backup will be counted against storage limit, this was complete betrayal from Google. When Google photos was introduced, the major selling point for iPhone user line was unlimited photos backup for lifetime and I completely trusted the statement from tech giant like Google. However, we were completely backstabbed by marketing gimmick from Google and their decision to accumulate storage for photos backup was disastrous. Now that we have been left with no options, the search for reliable and affordable cloud storage for photos have grown stronger. Even if Google decides to extend the deadline or even if it extends storage to its existing users, the affordability of Google photos have gone down drastically, and their prices seems exceedingly higher than Microsoft’s OneDrive. To my readers, I wanted to reiterate the fact that the above blog post was not sponsored, and all the above comments were from my previous experience and viewpoint. To know more about my decision on online cloud storage, please feel free to check out the blog post in “G R Team Sites”

Points to consider while upgrading applications

If your old application was not meeting the business reporting requirements and basic functionalities, then it would be right time for your business to look out for new application. The new application requirements should be defined and mapped to perform all functions that were performed by previous application. Few of the application features to be considered while upgrading to new application are

  • Interfaces connecting source and external applications should be compatible 
  • Customization of Payment process and integrating components of previous application should be compatible in new upgraded application as well
  • Conversion of all the Quote and Contracts that were in legacy database to new database and the sensitive documents to be available in the form of hard copies.

Finally bought Macbook Pro

So, after realization, that water entering into my MacBook Pro and in the process of trying to resolve it by visiting various service experts, finally I have decided to either get new Macbook Pro or go for affordable windows laptop. At first, I was looking for good quality windows laptop with decent configuration, but when I browsed the online shopping sites I was shocked, as the prices seems to be on par with apple laptops and not even one laptop had best configuration. One laptop had best graphics card but failed on ram, other had good graphics card & ram but failed on processor and finally if I found a windows laptop with good configuration that matches all my requirements, however it had a whopping price tag on par with apple laptop.
