iPhone case can be turned into a flying drone

An innovative new iPhone case can be transformed into a flying drone that takes selfies.

Selfly, as the device is known, is compatible with a wide range of popular Apple and Samsung smartphones, and is being billed as the perfect gift for anyone who is determined to take a flawless selfie.

That's because the case can be detached and then used as a remote-control flier that's controlled using a smartphone app.

The impressive device shoots video in high-quality Full HD resolution, while it is also ideal for taking aerial selfies.

And because the cutting-edge Selfly drone lasts around four minutes on a single charge, there is scope to take lots of great snaps.

Meanwhile, Apple recently announced that all batteries for iPhone 6 models or later can now be swapped for $29.

The technology giant apologised to customers for slowing down older iPhones as the batteries aged, while the world-famous firm also clarified the rules and discount for those who swapped before it made the offer.

Apple confirmed, too, that the replacements are valid regardless of the result of a diagnostic test.

But previously, in order to be given a swap, Apple required a consumer to have a battery that had retained less than 80 per cent of its original capacity.

The firm's offer, which was made public earlier in January and costs just $29, rather than the previous price of $79.

What's more, the deal also arrived on the consumer market a month earlier than had previously been suggested.
