There are a full range of locations to stay if you managed to get yourself a ticket and some of the hotels have the best rates in Los Angeles where no pre-payment is required to book a room. For eating out you can choose from a diverse selection of eating places which serves every taste and budget.
For those that are not lucky enough to have a ticket, there are a whole host of new mobile iOS games coming to the small screen including Heart’s Medicine, Time to Heal, Lifeline, Whiteout, and Warp Shift which is a gorgeous puzzle game that actually forces you to think outside of the box.
Those that have an Apple device are also getting excited about the new up-coming iPhone 7 with rumours and speculation running rife about what will be offered this September, especially with Apple celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2017. Speculations include a glass case, dual cameras, and upgraded audio functions are amongst some of the rumours that abound alongside supposedly leaked photos.
There really is no surprise that the internet is rife with speculation as the iPhone has revolutionised the way we communicate with others. Now, if we choose, we can ignore the person sitting facing us over the table and be chatting with someone on the other side of the world for free. No other device gives you the safe and secure software that allows you to tailor make your phone to suit your individual needs whether that is playing on your favourite video game, checking out sites like Dicedealer.com online pokies guide or taking care of your personal finances, the iPhone has an app to suit almost every taste and need.
So we wait to see what this September brings from Apple. Will the new iPhone 7 and 7plus be a small upgrade meaning we will have to wait until 2017 for the major changes, or will Apple put us out of our misery this year, even if it is a celebratory year in 2017?…One thing is for certain, those rumours and speculations will carry on until Apple put us out of our misery.
