As our concerns over the initial impressions that iPhone 5's black coating has a tendency to develop scratches quite quickly have went on to be reinforced by users after just days, we do wonder how much of a conscious decision to ship such an easily-marrable phone was by Apple. Certainly, Phill Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and a recognizable figure from recent keynotes, has taken inspiration from Steve Jobs to answer customer emails as he speaks out on the issue.
The WakeMate, available later this month, is a new iPhone accessory that aims to help you get a better night's sleep. Using Actigraphy, the WakeMate wristband monitors your sleep cycles during the night and relays the information to your iPhone. The WakeMate software then uses that information to determine the best time for you to wake up.
Like a traditional alarm, the software allows you to set a specific time for you to wake up, although you won't necessarily be woken up then. Instead, WakeMate will wake you up within a 20-minute window of that time, based on your current sleep cycle. The result is that you'll wake up feeling more refreshed and alert.
