    At first, a good number of iPhones users wowed that smartphones nowadays enabled individuals to enjoy the debauched pleasure of viewing videos on their iPhones. Nonetheless, after sometime, iPhone users learned that doing so entailed transferring large or even the unwanted apps that would prove costly in the end. This made some people fall a victim of dangerous virus online. Good heaven! Quite a number of iPhone makers and some operating system programmers nippily caught on that iPhone users were not gratified with this inconvenient and costly procedure. As a result, we now have the iPhone 5s videos, we can transfer files and edit images. Luckily, this post is making me live in my dreams!
    One word only, awesome!
