In the first half of 2015, Xiaomi has already sold about 34.7 million smartphones. This is a rather impressive number in terms of sales. And when compared to the iPhone which sold around 56 million (forecast numbers, but these tend to be reflected in reality), it seems the gap is getting smaller thanks to Xiaomi selling strong in China.
Sure 34.7 million sold units is a pretty impressive number, and keep in mind that these numbers are actually devices that were sold to consumers, and not just shipping numbers that virtually any manufacturer can make up. But unfortunately, it’s a far cry from what CEO Lei Jun proclaimed long ago that Xiaomi will reach or will sell a 100 million phones this year. (Recently, there has been a shipment decline in China so that may have affected the sales numbers.)

The smart band market has never been more alive ever since Apple entered the smart watch market, with the Apple watch already having a wide range of colors to choose from, from candy colors to plain Aluminium, and to an 18 Karat Gold versions.
While Apple products are sold at a premium price, other manufacturers have started to enter the smart band/watch market by introducing cheaper alternatives for the Apple Watch. Other manufacturers like Xiaomi are entering the battle field by introducing cheaper alternatives. Providing a wide range of Smart bracelets for a much cheaper prices. Surely, even with the high prices the Apple watch still dominates the smart band market. But as more and more competition comes to the scene, the pricing is where the battles are going to be held.

Data loss happens every moment in today’s digital world. For iOS devices including iPhone, iPad and iPod, the first thing that comes to our mind when we suffer from data loss may be iTunes backup.
While iTunes backup creates a copy of almost everything on our iOS devices, the detailed files in the backup are unreadable because the backup is a kind of SQLITEDB file. In order to retrieve the lost files, we have to restore the iDevice from iTunes backup file by erasing all newly added data. Is there a better way? Definitely there is. Now we can use iTunes Data Recovery tool to parse these unreadable iTunes backup files and allows us to recover data selectively without replacing newly added data on iPhone, iPad or iPod.
