Apple is quite known for its silent updates to software and sometimes event to hardware! Apple just released iOS 7.1 out in the wild bringing some drastic but minimalist changes to the software running on iPhones, iPads and iPods.
CarPlay one of the chief additions to the total list of new features, although there are no compatible cars on the roads as of now, it just makes sure your dashboards see something smart coming very soon. Users will also notice UI changes, squished bugs and faster animations and transitions, among other improvements.
Some important and noticeable changes include :
- New camera add-ons including Auto HDR for the iPhone 5S.
- New Push-To-Talk for Siri , improved notifications for FaceTime calls when in sync with another device.
- Improvements to the Touch ID Fingerprint recognition system.
- More Accessibility options, new buttons borders and a new call answer UI.
Go ahead, hit that update button if it hasn’t been pushed to you yet!
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%.
The Talkband B1 sure looks a lot more like a fitness tracker than anything like the Gear 2. The TalkBand B1, as Huawei calls it, also behaves much like such a tracker, measuring footsteps, monitoring sleeping patterns, and letting you record calories – essentially aiming directly at the fitbit fitness tracker.
The trick that the Talkband has under it’s sleve is that the display pops out and acts as a wireless Bluetooth earpiece. With a price of around $140 or 100 Euros, expect this device to be available this quarter.
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.
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!?
Last year was pretty interesting for the smartphone industry and one question that repeatedly hit our mailbox was this – which is the best phone of the year 2013!? So we chose two representatives, the best of the Android and iOS platforms and put them head to head to draw meaningful conclusions.
The size difference here is pretty big, the Android representative – the Nexus 5 has a 4.95inch display compared to a modest 4 inch display of the iPhone 5 that makes it taller and components like OIS make the Nexus 5 bulkier.
Again there’s a huge contrast when it comes to choice of materials, the Android counterpart is made of plastic poly-carbonate and the iPhone is the epitome of premium materials and cutting edge manufacturing.That said, the Nexus 5′s smooth matte finish feels much higher-end than the glossy and flimsy plastic you’ll find on most Samsung flagships.
The Nexus 5 comes in two color variants as we speak, although this may change soon. While the iPhone 5s comes in 3 exquisite colors – Gold,Silver and Space gray and those look very nice. The space gray iPhone has a black front, while the silver and gold models sport white faces.
Screen Size :
The Nexus 5 here wins hands down. The 5 inch 1080p screen is just much sharper than the iPhone 5s. However, comparing the quality, the iPhone takes all awards, the LCD screen on the Nexus 5 appears a tad bit washed out and just overall not well calibrated. Both screens are sharp, and your eyes may not need anything sharper than the iPhone’s 326 PPI Retina Display. With that said, the Nexus 5′s 1080p IPS screen does pack in 185 percent more pixels.
The Nexus 5 is blazing fast thanks to that 2.3Ghz Four core CPUs. Where real engineering works is when Apple makes the iPhone 5s work flawlessly on hardware that someone would call 2 year old. Also, it crushes everything in benchmarks.
The Nexus 5′s camera is one of it’s primary weak-points. The iPhone 5s’ camera isn’t a huge improvement over the iPhone 5, but its dual LED flash does give you more colorful and evenly-lit flash photography shots.
Added features : iPhone 5s nails it with 120fps slow motion video while the Nexus 5 has Optical Image Stabilization built into the camera unit. Overall, it’s the iPhone 5S that takes the crown.
Starting Prices (Off Contract) :
The real conclusion is here, the Nexus 5′s killer feature is the price to package ratio – it’s the best performance smartphone at that price off contract! The iPhone 5S with it’s premium feel can be said to the best smartphone overall, with a solid camera, solid performance, solid display and now even a fingerprint scanner, it’s the best engineering wonder your money can buy you.
If you love Android and hate bloatware, love instant updates and hate gimmicky features, the Nexus 5 is for you. If you don’t want to pull your hair on throughout customization, if you don’t want to change settings for a great photo before you take it, you love a snappy User friendly OS and outstanding build quality, look no further than the iPhone 5s.
Which one would you go for!?
Well well well, what do we have here! Apple seems to have relaunched the iPhone 4 in India as reported by India times. The reason stated is that iPhone sales have plummeted post the introduction of the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s which are over-priced for the Indian market.
Apple additionally also retired the iPhone 5 leaving eaving future possible owners no choice for a lower-end/budget iPhone. However, it appears that the iPhone 4 is back in the game, but at an “almost robbery” price of Rs23,000, which translates to roughly $375, as referred to in the report. The expected/rumored price was Rs15,000 (around $240)
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.
