The human eye is amazing, but it’s limited as to what it can see. That’s where imaging tools like thermal cameras can come in handy, allowing you to see and diagnose problems that are normally invisible to the eye. This thermal, or infrared energy, is present in all matter, but because its wavelength is beyond the scope of what the human eye can discern, it’s invisible to us without the necessary tools.

Thanks to modern-day smartphones like the iPhone, these tools are now a lot more accessible to the everyday person. One such example is the Flir One Pro — a portable thermal camera attachment that connects directly to an iPhone’s Lightning port.

If you’re a homeowner, or just someone who’s curious about the type of technology that allows you to see through walls and identify heat signatures like you’re in the movie Predator, then Flir’s One Pro is a mighty-impressive, if not tiny, piece of kit.

We’ve reviewed several Ugreen products in the past, but this is probably the most useful one that I’ve seen thus far. It’s a huge 20,000 mAh MFi Power Bank, which is capable of recharging your iPhone five times over. That in and of itself is nice, but the real benefit of this particular USB power pack is its built-in Lightning cable, which easily tucks away inside the unit for storage. expand full story

Earlier this evening, Tim Cook surprisingly announced that, with a future iOS update, users will be able to turn off iPhone performance throttling. Cook noted, however, that such a move would put users at risk for unexpected shutdowns as their battery ages.

We’re curious, would you turn off iPhone throttling as your battery aged, if you knew you could suffer from unexpected shutdowns?
