What do you get if you take one tiny state with no sales tax, one part proximity to some of the highest population density in the U.S., and stir in the most popular smartphone on the planet? You get the Apple Store retail location that sells more iPhones than any other, and it's in Delaware.
Notification banners have been a welcome part of our lives in iOS for a while now, although you may have noticed them change in iOS 7. Now that they’re bigger, they’re certainly easier to read.

In iOS 7's Control Center, Apple essentially took the old pop-up music controls and added heaps of extra functionality, and it’s a very welcome change.

However, in Control Center no such button appears even though the funtionality is still there. Michael Johnston shows us exactly where it's hidden away.
This little external battery comes equipped with a USB port, a built-in 30-pin connector, a built-in micro USB connector and a built-in standard USB connector. It will charge a lot of things, but unfortunately it does not include a Lightning connector.
