Archive for the ‘apple iphone 5’ tag
The upcoming iPhone is hot property right now and it is rightly enough getting it’s share of leaks and rumors. The latest one about it’s possible camera sensor, states that it might not be about megapixels if any for the next iPhone.
On the technical side, although each iteration of the iPhone did bring significant improvements to it’s camera, they have still been the same 8 Megapixel shots since the 4s. For another herd of peeps who always rant about Megapixels are not the way to go, quality is, well, Apple thinks the same, at least that’s what a report says. The new iPhone 6 may have the same 8 Megapixel output with upgrades purely in the optics and image quality department.
At times when 20 , 41 and even 50 MP benchmarks have been reached, do you think it is okay to carry around an 8 MP camera on your iPhone?
The Healthbook app is a distillation of the ongoing buzz of smartphones that should have extensive health monitoring onboard. The software borrows cues from Apple’s current Passbook application, but with cards for different aspects of a user’s health instead of for loyalty cards, boarding passes, etc.
As we can see Activity and Weight tracking, as well as sleep and diet, work like existing solutions, as mentioned, but advanced applications like blood sugar monitoring would require additional hardware. Is this a third party accessory or will an Apple made iWatch to be it’s feed, we know not.
Another interesting addition is the ‘Emergency card’, which provides users with a new way to save their biological and biographical details. This can also be set to feature emergency contact info in case of an accident, and 9to5Mac speculates that it will be made available from a device’s lock screen, just like the emergency dialer feature is now.
Are you excited for iOS 8, what is the number one must have feature according to you?!
Apple has consistently been breaking it’s sales records with every iteration of their iPhone; rumors about the new iPhone 6 seem to be building since Apple has said that there will be a couple of rather new changes that they would be implementing this time over(maybe like every time that they do?)
Foxconn electronics, major manufacturer for Apple’s higher-end iPhones, is apparently expecting orders of as much as 90 million iPhone 6 units in 2014 according to the Chinese-language Commercial Times, which cited data from Citigroup Global Markets as indicating. To give you a perspective, the growth in 2013 was 13%, what this news would mean is that growth could be as much as 23%.
Sonny Dickson tweeted out a few pics revealing a very slim frame that sure seems to match the sort of manufacturing work we’ve seen for Apple products in the past. While he admits that he’s “not 100% sure” that this really is the iPhone 6 back panel, it definitely looks the part.
And just ot give you’ll a clear perspective of how big this iPhone is compared to it’s previous version, 9To5Mac placed the back panel over each other via photo editing techniques and the bump in dimensions here is pretty clear. We have been hearing about this 5 inch + screen size on the next generation iPhone and that sure sounds good but are you ready for a bigger iPhone?!
However, a new hack can allow an intruder to disable Find My iPhone without needing a password. An unlocked iPhone needs to be accessed by an attacker for this, thanks to this new found glitch, the intruder can shut this service without needing nay password further.
Fortunately the new iOS 7.1 beta doesn’t fall prey to this attack.
Definitely not the first time we are hearing about iphones catching fire, this one coming from New York where a 13-Year old kid Maine, US suffered first- and second-degree burns as her iPhone spontaneously caught fire while in her pocket.
WMTW reported that just as this teenager sat down in class, she heard a pop with smoke emanating from her pants. Three of her classmates helped her while the teacher bought the fire extinguisher to set out the flames. Fire administrators quoted “appears that when the student sat down, with the phone in her back pocket, the phone’s battery ‘shorted out’. The state fire marshal is investigating.”
Apple in the past has replaced faulty chargers with new ones for such allegations and also called some of them third party attacks,but is it enough !?
A new report says that Apple might still not mess with the iOS 7 look and feel for the iOS 8, but instead would shift their focus to better fitness tracking. If this is true, this would be very sad since it’s been ages since iOS has looked almost the same.A recent report also suggested that Apple met FDA last week regarding health and fitness regulations so there is definitely an inclination towards that.
Is Apple facing he heat from Google’s smart lenses!?
Reports say that this is the photograph of the upcoming iPhones metal frame and right away one can’t help but notice how big it is, if this turns into reality it could be a huge size upgrade, the biggest screen size update ever! Apple was rumoured to be working on a 4.7inch and 5.7inch versions and this could be the latter.
These photographs do not really make us confidence, do you think these images are legit?
These Sensoria socks are intelligent enough to track your steps, movements, speed and calories thanks to a bunch of sensors. And ofcourse since socks cant accommodate transmitters, there is this ankle band that sends this data to your smartphone so you can keep a record of all those numbers.
Seriosuly this is a great concept but these technologies need to be much more integrated to one device and must not be awkward wearables.
To jailbreak your iPhone, one needs to have a Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.6 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64) machine and a iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4. The official page of evasion warns “many Cydia tweaks are not yet compatible with iOS 7″.
Also many sources have said that they havent been able to test it much, so if you do this you’re really upto yourself.
