If there is one thing that sucks about a broken iPhone 5 that isn’t the cracked or smashed screen it’s the abominable battery life. This is something many Montreal users may be familiar with and is an ongoing problem that even people with the older iPhone 4 and 4S models may experience. Over time the amount of charge cycles you put your phone through may cause the overall daily battery life to diminish and become a pretty big inconvenience. If you are sick and tired of scrambling around for a charging cable half way through the day, or budgeting your resources throughout the day, read on – today’s post will be actionable information you can apply to you’re iPhone and life to solve this irritating problem.

Utilize iPhone Power Saving Mode

Turn on iPhone power saving mode and your brightness, CPU usage and unnecessary apps are instantly turned down, but not to the point of affecting your everyday productivity. Many people don’t even bother with this, thinking it’s going to stifle their text messages or emails, but it certainly can help keep you going throughout the day if you are a heavy user. Even for those of you without a newer model, all iPhone’s have the capacity to turn down brightness and CPU usage through a power management application.

Remove Unneeded Apps From Your Phone

Applications are great, but when they are sitting in the background and not being actively utilized they can do a number on your battery life even after a few hours. You don’t need to delete all those crazy random games you downloaded or the cool flashlight app, but keeping them running/idling in the background will certainly contribute to a diminished battery life and we’d recommend keeping them off until you really do need them.

iPhone Battery Replacement in Montreal

If none of the above is resolving your weak battery problems, you might be relieved to know that an outright replacement of the factory installed lithium-ion battery your iPhone came with is really affordable, especially in Montreal. There are only 3 specialized screws holding your iPhone battery in place, and a trusted and experienced iPhone repair technician can actually replace the entire thing in as little as 30 minutes. We’d recommend checking out iPhoneRepairMontreal.net (check out their website here), as they have extensive experience and a great warranty in place that gives us the peace of mind Apple users are usually looking for. The best part is a battery replacement costs no more than $50 for the iPhone 4 and 5/5S/5C models.

Broken iPhone’s are one of the most inconvenient repairs that you can experience and it’s not without reason. We use our phone’s for almost everything from family communication to important business calls so when you lose functionality in any way whether it be the touch screen, any audio issue or even water damage you’ll probably want to get it fixed as soon as possible.  Depending on your device,  the extent of the damage and how fast you need your device back you have several options.

The first place almost everyone goes and it’s for good reason is their nearest Apple Retail store. The brand definitely has a trust factor behind it and the last thing customers want is an ‘unofficial repair’ that can further damage their prized iPhone or cause data loss issues. Unfortunately, while Apple does diagnose hardware defects like a cracked screen or weak battery life they will simply offer you an entirely new phone instead of fixing the individual issue.  Again, depending on how badly your phone is damaged this may or may not work for you. Additionally we have heard from several customers they have been able to get their broken iPhone 6 replaced entirely for $120 even if they didn’t have an existing Apple Care warranty.

Your other option would be to explore third party iPhone repair options in Winnipeg. Much like any computer or laptop repair business, the iPhone has many individual components that can be replaced without too much work. Prices for the components have dropped and full repair tutorials are widely available online so you can even take on the project yourself if you are so inclined. However if you are in a tight situation and need it replaced as soon as possible – say before you jump on a flight, or before a long weekend definitely preform a quick Google search to see what’s in your area. Since a cracked iPhone 5 screen or dead battery is the most common issue seen through most smartphone repair businesses doors they can be completely done in a matter of hours at most. Simply make sure you go with a reputable business that has a standard service and labour warranty and uses quality components and you’ll be on your way in no time.

I’ve had my fair share of computer and technology issues over the years and I can usually get through them by asking friends for advice or sorting it out myself through basic trouble shooting. As my time gets monopolized more and more by my business and entrepreneurial pursuits, I definitely need my laptop, desktop and even iPad Mini operating at their very peak pretty much all the time. Any slowness, inability to load certain apps or programs, or even hardware issues can be fatal to my daily operations.

Since I was spending the week on the road, I figured I’d look into computer repair shops in Brampton and make sure I had a go-to source for PC repair issues should they arise. I found BramptonPCRepair.ca and had them provide you, my readers, with some easy tips to prolong the lifespan and efficiency of your laptop or desktop computer should you run into any lag or slowness.

Regularly Reformat / Re-Install Windows

Years ago it used to be a real pain in the ass to re-install Windows, especially considering you basically had to move ALL your data elsewhere and then move it back after a couple hours which was your only option. With the expansion of cloud storage and cheap USB storage, moving your stuff back over is the easy part. Often times instead of fighting with a virus or malware infection, computer repair shops will let you know a full reformat of your hard disk and re-installation of Windows is your best options

Uninstall Unneeded Programs

Every month, I go through the list of programs I have installed (check Control Panel > Uninstall) and make a note of anything I don’t really need or haven’t used in recent weeks. Extra programs can take us disk space, memory usage and generally don’t need to be loaded if they are not really being used.

Professional PC Optimization Packages

If you’re tight on time, having struggles understanding the ‘techy’ side of things and just want the job done finding a qualified computer repair business in Brampton or the GTA is definitely your best bet. Most places offer speed or optimization packages where they run your machine through a battery of tests and make any system settings changes that need to be done. Best part of this all is that they have the staff and resources so this can be done as fast as possible, something people who prioritize convenience

The next generation of Apple’s iPhone is here and hardcore fans have already lined up around retail stores overnight and have got their hands on the coveted iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It’s only a matter of time before someone drops their phone, or it slips out of a pocket and that beautiful front LCD display is cracked. Local Mississauga iPhone repair businesses have been providing on-the-spot screen repair services since the release of the initial 3G in Canada. So the space is competitive and it will be a matter of weeks before a comprehensive cracked iPhone 6 screen repair service is launched.

What can consumers expect price wise? Like most newer devices, quality parts that repair businesses are comfortable installing and standing behind with a warranty are going to be hard to come by. So you’re going to pay quite a bit to have even a hairline crack fixed in your iPhone screen for the first few months. Many Toronto iPhone users mistake this initially high cost as price gouging, but it actually a symptom of market shortage. Apple famously does not make it’s components available or very repair friendly, whether we are talking about iPad’s, Macbooks or the new iPhone 6, so it’s up to third party electronics manufacturers in China to do their best to replicate these delicate components as best as possible. Until higher quality replica LCD screens and internal components such as batteries and home buttons become more widely available and push the price down, expect to see $300+ price points for screen repair.

Avoid Shady Kijiji iPhone Repair Services In Mississauga

Understand that this is a natural market situation and it will stabilize and ultimately come down over time. The same high prices were appearing all over Mississauga and the Toronto area for iPhone 5 and 5S screens when that model first came out now you can get your iPhone 5 screen fixed for as little as $80 depending on which shop you take it to. Either way, we recommend doing sufficient research online and finding an established smartphone repair business, ideally one not based of Kijiji or someone’s basement. If you can’t find them on a listing service like Google Places or Yelp, it’s probably best to stay away. While there isn’t any catastrophic that can happen instantly if you install a lower quality front LCD display, it will become more susceptible to cracking easily or dust and other microbes getting in-between your glass and phone.


Looking for a skilled accountant or bookkeeping service can be a big process, but it is quite important for Ottawa residents and businesses. It’s quite common you’ll feel surprised regarding the cost of their services, such as payroll management, tax returns, and even monthly financial records management. What is too much to pay and how much should you budget for Ottawa bookkeeping services? There are several different aspects to consider.

Ideally, you’d like to find a bookkeeper that specializes in your specific needs – whether that is a small or medium sized business, or a simple individual tax return – there is someone that suits you best out there. Finding a specialized accounting firm will give you more peace of mind and comfort.  They will also likely have more nuanced knowledge of the Canadian Revenue Agency guidelines you can take advantage to save the most amount of money possible. This is something franchise operations like Liberty Tax cannot compete with as they’re advisor’s are usually not free to give you their honest opinion on your best course of action. Of course, going with a specialized accountant in Ottawa may cost more, but the long term tax savings are definitely something to consider.

Apart from individual tax returns, growing small businesses should definitely consider the best possible accountant they can find. Payroll and credit card balance issues might seem easy to deal with from the outside, but if they are not handled properly can severely plague the productivity of your business. Accountants specialize in keeping your focus on growing your business and keeping your clients happy, so you don’t have to agonize over small financial details every week.

There are obviously several different pricing schemes when it comes to bookkeepers, but as with most other services, you get what you pay for. A misfiling with the CRA can be much more costly than an extra $20-30/hr for a few hours a month in accounting services. Investing in a solid financial expert is a lot like investing in a good lawyer, you get what you pay for and you’ll really appreciate paying the extra dollars when the stress of tax time hits.
