$1 Home Design 3D App for iOS/macOS

Apple File Manager app for iOS 8

I have been using iOS for quite some time. I’ve been seeing rumors that the next iPhone will have a bigger screen which personally is good but I’d rather have an exceptionally great battery life than anything else for the next iPhone. It turns out that I’m not alone at all in this. Reading an article on BGR, based on a survey of WalletHero, it turns out that 97% of survey respondents want better battery life.
