Archive for the ‘apple iphone 5’ tag
Apple recently just updated their developer website and they proudly showcase recent statistics which say – 74% of total iOS running devices now have iOS7 on them.
This is a significant number and most of which has been achieved with the release of the two new iPhones this year : iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c. What is also impressive is the fact that 22% of users are running iOS 6 which means a whooping 96% people are using the last two latest versions of iOS.
Well, only if Google can reach half those number with KitKat, i would be the happiest!
Now that news of Google and Nestle’s partnership with Android 4.4 KitKat has been fully announced and sunk in, Nestle has released a new commercial mocking Apple’s usual product introduction videos, usually featuring Jony Ive.
The video above, created and marketed by Nestle, cleverly mocks Apple’s product introduction video and introduces the KitKat, known as the ‘future of confectionary’. The video features a British lad named Christoper Catlin, the KitKat CBO (Chief Breaks Officer), and some mellow piano melodies which sounds just like an Apple video. The video reminds one of the one below, where Jony Ive is seen introducing the Apple iPhone 5 in great detail. Similarly Catlin describes the KitKat chocolate bar here saying how it’s one finger long and four fingers wide and precisely carved for maximum enjoyment. The video is cleverly entertaining and does bring up some excitement as to what Apple’s next iPhone(s) may bring to the table as well as what we will see in Android 4.4 KitKat.
Exciting times ahead it seems!
Just when you thought this day couldn’t get any better, Apple has sent out invitations to their long rumoured September 10 event which expected to yield the latest set of iPhones, iPads in addition to seeing iOS 7 officially start its global rollout.
Apple sure made our day today when they fully acknowledged their plans to hold a lavish event on September 10, as rumoured for several weeks on end now. The September 10 event is expected to see Apple launch their much anticipated iPhone 5S as well as their budget iPhone 5C. Additionally the company is also expected to officially launch the redesigned Apple iPad 5 as well as the Apple iPad Mini 2 with a Retina display and some faster hardware. The company is also expected to finally release iOS 7 to average consumers, which is sure to give some ageing devices a new lease on life.
Keep your eyes peeled on the Amzer Blog as we bring you coverage of the September 10 Apple event as well as coverage on this week’s IFA 2013 in Berlin, Germany. The Galaxy Note III and Galaxy Gear is expected to launch tomorrow so stay tuned!
In the spirit of all things ‘Mini’ nowadays, John Leake of the RetroMacCast has recreated the original Apple Macintosh into a tiny new form factor just one third the size of the original and considerably faster thanks to modern computing technology.
How cute is this thing, really now? This adorable bugger is actually just a shell for the ever-so-amazing Raspberry Pi, with an LCD attached, but it sure brings back the nostalgia of some of the first mass market personal computers. The Mini Mac runs System 6, thanks to an emulator, and packs 3.5-inch LCD display with a 512 x 384 pixel resolution. Naturally it comes with 2 USB ports, Bluetooth for all your desktop hardware and an HDMI port if the tiny display just doesn’t seem to tickle your fancy!
Sadly it won’t be sold, or mass produced in any way, so unless you make one of your own, it will stay the thing of dreams.
Just when you got your heart set on getting that Gold Apple iPhone 5S to give you that Saudi Price vibe, a new leak hits making all of your choices all the more harder. It seems, according to new leaked images from Sonny Dickson, that the upcoming iPhone 5S will not only be available in white, black and gold, but grey too.
The (Christian) Grey iPhone 5S will seemingly feature black trimmings, where the Golden variant features White trims, making your multi-coloured fantasies all the more vivid. If you’re leaning towards getting the Pink Apple iPhone 5S, then maybe you should wait for the Pink Amzer Soft Gel TPU Gloss Skin Case or just opt for the rainbow-esque iPhone 5C. Of course nothing more is known of this mysterious new Grey iPhone 5S variant, but it seems pale in comparison with what Apple has in store for the iPhone 5C, am I right? Of course I am. Apple is expected to launch the Apple iPhone 5C and Apple iPhone 5S at a lavish event in two weeks, meaning there is plenty of room for a Bronze variant of the iPhone 5S to pop up.
What colour would you like to see the iPhone 5S come in? I am leaning towards a mix of hot pink and white!
The upcoming Apple iPhone 5S in has allegedly been caught off guard again with some images leaking showing off the upcoming device’s new golden variant as well as some unofficial confirmation as to some minor design changes to the upcoming Apple flagship smartphone.
The Apple iPhone 5S will allegedly be this year’s flagship iPhone and will apparently feature some minor upgrades over the Apple iPhone 5. The iPhone 5S will allegedly come in a new golden variant, although its accents and bezel will apparently be white, so technically it will be white and gold. Additionally the iPhone 5S will apparently feature a dual LED camera flash to keep those low light images sharp and the Nokia fans quiet. The iPhone 5S is rumoured to pack a new redesigned and faster Apple A7 SoC as well as a larger camera, more RAM as well as a 128GB option to cater for those who need a bit extra storage space.
The Apple iPhone 5S may very well be the best iPhone to date, but do you think it will be able to compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One?
By now we have seen pretty much every trick in the book when it comes to the alleged Apple iPhone 5C, also known as the Apple iPhone Mini, which has come a long way in rumourland and been caught in a series of both real and fake leaks, none of which can be proven authentic thus far. The latest leak claims to be a press render of the Apple iPhone 5C.
The latest leak comes from Romanian publication, Mobilissimo.ro, who apparently received the render from a local retailer. The image allegedly shows off the Apple iPhone 5C in an official press render with its sleek looking plastic body and all white exterior, but what we have here is a fake. Like most Apple press renders, the creator of this real seeming image got the time and date of the device right (9:41 on the 10th of September), but sadly not right enough. The iPhone 5C will allegedly be launched on September 10 and sure enough the calendar shows the date as the tenth, but it says that September 10 is a Monday, which it is not, it is in fact a Tuesday.
So, yet another myth busted. What would you like to see in the upcoming ‘budget’ iPhone?
Remember the impending Apple iPhone 5S rumoured to launch on September 10? Well, things just got a lot more interesting. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, a KGI analyst, the Apple iPhone 5 is likely to come in a 128GB variant, becoming the second Apple iOS device to get the memory bump after the Apple iPad 4.
Kuo has a track record for being quite accurate when it comes to these things so you might want to put away those salt shakers. The Apple iPhone 5S has been rumoured for quite a while and since it will apparently closely resemble the iPhone 5, it’s hard to see which leaks are real and which not. The Apple iPhone 5S with 128GB memory will come at quite a premium though with Kuo believing that it could sell for as high as $499 on contract, so you might want to prepare those kidneys if you want one. He adds that the new iPhone will have a more energy efficient Apple A7 SoC as well as a wider aperture camera which may help with low light photography.
It seems that the wait is almost over for Apple fans around the world. Are you excited to get your hands on the next generation Apple iPhone?
Great news Apple fans, we finally have a date to mark on our calendars on which Apple is set to announce the next wave of iPhones. The date, September 10, was given to AllThingsD by an informant from within the company, but little else is know about what exactly will transpire at the event.
AllThingD’s Ina Fried reports that they were given the date of September 10 on which Apple will supposedly host a large event to showcase the devices. It remains unclear whether or not the Apple iPhone Mini (or iPhone 5C) will be launched on the same day and whether or not Apple will also launch other products such as the upcoming Apple iPad 5, Apple iPad Mini 2 with Retina or possibly an Apple iWatch which has been rumoured for quite some time. The Apple iPhone 5S will supposedly be launched at the event with pre-orders starting on September 13 and the device finally going on sale on September 20.
Indian shopped can also look forward to the next flagship iPhone to hit their shores on September 27, just a week after the first wave of iPhones go on sale elsewhere in the world. Are you as excited as we are?
Several months ago, we reported that YouTube founders, Steve Chen and Chad Hurley, were working on a new social video service called MixBit, which they were more than happy to tease.
Over the months, MixBit has gotten lost in our distant memories, but today it’s back and it looks quite appealing. MixBit has been launched officially in the form of an iOS application that records a 16 second video clip, with a twist. Unlike Vine and Instagram Video, MixBit allows you to edit and remix videos, making clips of up to an hour long. Videos are submitted anonymously and no comments are available making trolls all the more less and remixing so much better.
MixBit is backed by Google Ventures and Chen & Hurley have promised an Android version will become available in the Google Play store in the coming weeks.
