The Future Of The iPhone

By on Dec 14, 2013 in iPhone | 0 comments

Apple has taught us to dream. When the company launched game-changing products like the iPod, iPhone and iPad, Apple made us feel like the future we picture in our minds will one day be a reality. And here we are, with Elon Musk working on flying cars while Pebble and friends put your smartphone on your wrist. But some of us take the dream more seriously than others. Take, for example, these iPhone concept videos from Set Solution, which show an impossibly thin iPhone Air and an outrageously curved iPhone 6C. As you can probably guess, this time the C stands for Curved. The concept for an iPhone Air is particularly beautiful, with an edge-to-edge glass display and a profile so thin it nearly disappears. Unfortunately, there are a number of obstacles between this concept and reality, least of which being a power source that can fit into such a thin device and still give our digital...

iPhone 5S makes a video appearance in full Champagne Gold

By on Aug 27, 2013 in iPhone |

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-Ib6NME-DE iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, the rumoured next-generation iPhone and cheaper iPhone respectively, are expected to be unveiled on September 10. As the date approaches closer, we’re seeing a new leak almost every day. While the next generation iPhone, the iPhone 5S has made several appearances, a new hands-on video offers a good look at the Gold/ Champagne colour variant of the phone, which has been recently making headlines. The video, posted by AppAdvice also features the Blue coloured variant of the much talked-about low-cost iPhone or iPhone 5C. The video features the back panel of the iPhone 5S in Gold colour, revealing a much subtle Champagne colour. It compares the iPhone 5S shell to the Black/ Slate and White/ Silver coloured iPhone 5 in the videos. The iPhone 5S is almost identical to the iPhone 5 with the only physical difference...

iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C make a grand appearance in a fresh leak

By on Aug 24, 2013 in iPhone |

While Apple’s next generation iPhone and the much talked about low-cost iPhone or the iPhone 5C are expected to be announced in less than three weeks, the leaks just don’t stop trickling. Sonny Dickson, who’s been regularly posting pictures of the new iPhones, including some high resolution ones, has now uploaded about 70 purported pictures of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C components including that of ribbon cables and components, the entire intact casings, display assemblies, vibration motor, audio jack, SIM trays, the front and rear cameras, and the mounts to attach all of the components to the casing, among others. The pictures don’t feature the logic board of the phones, though. Some pictures feature the Gold/ Champagne iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C placed side by side. The Gold iPhone 5S back casing features White coloured strips at the top and bottom, and includes the...

iOS 7 release date

By on Aug 21, 2013 in iOS, iOS 7 |

When it was first released, iOS was one of the most innovative and different mobile operating systems, proving that touchscreen interfaces really could work. It was a large part of the reason why the iPhone was so popular when it was first released. A few years down the line and it would be fair to say that iOS hasn’t changed that much since it launched. Even the latest version, iOS 6 (available for current devices, such as the iPhone 5 and iPad 4), is more of a tweak than a brand new OS. With the competition dramatically improving, with the likes of Android 4.2 providing plenty of new features, and the big threat of the Samsung Galaxy S4, it’s time for a big change, and that’s what iOS 7 brings. It’s a much needed change given that smartphones are sold as much on the operating system as on the hardware. We’ve seen Apple make big changes to an operating...

iPhone 5s release date

By on Aug 21, 2013 in iPhone |

According to the business focused publication (via CNET), Apple will release the two handsets simultaneously on Sept. 20, a date that jibes with a rumor that claimed the company is planning to announce the devices at a special Sept. 10 iPhone event. In addition to the supposed release date, the publication said Apple will debut a new gold color option for the iPhone 5S, a rumor that has quickly gained traction over the past week. No dates are available for the release in INDIA as of now. Beyond a purported launch date, not much else was provided in the way of device details. The newspaper echoed rumors and speculation regarding the inclusion of a fingerprint reader and upgraded internals for the 5S, while little was said about the...

Open-source project ports Android apps to iOS

By on Jun 24, 2011 in iOS |

A new open-source project entitled “In The Box” hopes to make the job of porting Android applications over to Apple’s iOS platform much easier by providing tools that can take a ready-coded Android app, execute and test it on different iOS devices and then submit the binary to Apple’s App Store. In The Box operates by taking the Dalvik virtual machine from Google’s Android operating system and allows it to run alongside tools provided for iOS apps, requiring little or no changes to the code to get the apps in the App Store. Currently, the process is a complicated one – the project requires a decent amount of technical knowledge and an understanding of both the Android SDK and iOS development applications. The official website includes a video of a demonstration app, but only shows how to port a simple “Hello World” application, not a dedicated Android Market title. Whether Apple would...

Skype for iPAD with Video chat

By on Jun 24, 2011 in iPad 2, iPad Apps |

The video, allegedly posted to Skype’s YouTube channel and then quickly removed, was captured by Twitter user @trackizmy1 and reposted by RazorianFly. Skype for iPhone supports voice chat, voice calling, and instant messaging but does not include a native iPad client, instead running in pixel doubled mode.
