iPhone XR Charging Secrets – Battery Lasts Longer yet Charges Faster?!

By | Company, tizi | No Comments

Following the recent release of the brand new iPhone XR and XS models, we wanted to check out what’s new and how they perform in comparison to each other. One of the most interesting facts you’ll notice is, when comparing the technical data of the new iPhone XR with that of the iPhone XS and XS Max, the iPhone XR battery actually lasts 2-3 hours longer (with up to 15 hours of internet use.)

All of this is interesting, but what we really wanted to know is how the new iPhones compare in terms of charging speed… According to Apple, all new iPhones support “Fast Charging” (albeit only when using a Lightning to USB-C cable in combination with a charging device which also supports Fast Charging.)

Our tizi Power chargers with USB-C all support Fast Charging for iPhones.

For this reason we couldn’t wait to get started with our test: How fast can the new iPhone XR be charged?

Facebook’s Onavo Protect “VPN” app was pulled – now what?

By | Company, VPN Tracker | No Comments

As you’ve probably heard, Apple has pulled Facebook’s Onavo Protect “VPN” app over privacy concerns.

While Onavo Protect claimed to be a VPN, it was owned by Facebook and was capable of incredibly invasive data collection: as it set itself up to redirect all internet activity through Facebook’s servers, it could potentially monitor all internet activity, including which apps were used, white sites were visited and basically anything else you did over the Onavo connection:

A VPN needs to be trustworthy

One of our core principles with VPN Tracker World Connect is that all your data stays private and is never logged. That means that our servers do not store or log any information, making VPN Tracker World Connect the right choice for privacy-conscious customers.

If you were using Onavo and have privacy concerns, remove the Onavo app from your phone and install World Connect from the App Store. We’ve been building VPN apps that adhere to strict German privacy laws since 2002 – this is the VPN app you can trust.

Even businesses can rely on VPN Tracker World Connect to keep employees safe while out they use Hotel or Airport wifi connections on business trips.
