It seems that virtually everyone has an iPhone these days, with even parents that are the biggest technophobes being wonn around by the simple iOS interface, often then also getting an iPad too as their preferred method of surfing the web. When people first get Apple’s phone, they are often surprised that their iPod or other MP3 player has effectively been rendered unnecessary, thanks to the built in music app that mirrors the iPod’s functionality. In fact, it’s got to the point that the iPod’s are now virtually identical to iPhones, with the exception that they don’t have the phone functions, they will be able to do other tasks requiring web access through the built in wifi.
Music is still a huge part of the iPhone and iPod appeal, and they’re targeted to people who love their tunes on the move. Thanks to the development of accessories for the devices, this is no longer limited to the person carrying the device with a pair of headphones. Apple’s music players can now be used in your car, by taking advantage a function of your car stereo that almost every vehile already has.
The FM Transmitter For Your iPhone
An FM transmitter is a device that broadcasts audio and allows a radio to receive it and play it to you. If you use an FM transmiter for iPhone devices, the FM transmitter is very low power, so it won’t even affect other vehicles driving nearby. All you do is plug it into your phone and tune your car radio to the frequency it broadcasts on. Normally the accessory wil have a display to tell you the frequency. You’ll then hear whatever is pplaying on your phone through the car system!
The In Car Charger For iPhones
You’ll soon discover that your battery runs down faster when you are using the music app on your phone compared to when it’s sitting idle. So, if you’re going on a long journey and listening to music on your phone (or through the car using the fm transmitter option), then you might want to invest in an in car charger too. This lets you charge your phone by plugging it into the power outlet in your vehicle.
With each successive release of the iPhone, more and more features get added. It’s hard to believe how much you can fit into a small device, especially when you compare it to the size of a simple cell phone ten years or so ago. We’ve now got a powerful entertainment system that’s got full internet integration right in our pockets!
