Recently, a bug was found in iOS – Apple’s mobile operating system for the likes of iPhone and iPad – that effectively bricked the 64-bit iPhone and iPad models just by settings a particular date in the date and time settings.
Samsung – the arch-rival to the popular fruit company – has unveiled beastly new devices to compete Apple’s latest iPhone 6s and the larger iPhone 6s Plus. At Mobile World Congress (WMC) 2016, the Korean giant introduced a 5.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S7 in response to the iPhone 6 and a larger sibling Galaxy S7 Edge with a 5.5-inch display to take on Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus. Here we will see how both of these new Galaxy devices stack up against Apple’s iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus.
Samsung has announced the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, its best smartphones to rival Apple’s iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. These two latest Galaxy devices are an evolution of the previous-generation Galaxy s6 and S6 Edge. The new devices keep the display of its predecessors while fixing some of the annoyance of Galaxy S6 generation devices.
iOS 9.3 beta 4 is now available to iOS developers. Apple has just released the fourth beta of its upcoming iOS 9.3 software update for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. The update is available to all those enrolled in Apple’s developer program either as an OTA update or as a standalone download directly from Apple’s server.
Earlier this month, the report of a device-bricking error 53 spread like wildfire. Apple also acknowledged the error and said it was intentional and occurs to provide maximum security to the users. But now Apple has released a revised version of iOS 9.2.1 software update to fix all those devices turned into bricks by the error 53. This minor iOs 9.2.1 revision carries a build number 13D20.
All the iPhone devices to-date have come with a 3.5mm headphone jack, but for iPhone, the headphone jack’s future looks bleak given the rise in the number of reports claiming that the upcoming iPhone model won’t feature a 3.5mm audio jack. Now this new report from Barclays is another nail in the coffin.
Rumors of a 4-inch iPhone 5se and the iPad Air 3 have been making rounds claiming that Apple is going to announce both new products in the month of March. Now a new report claims that Apple is not only going to announce, but also launch the iPhone 5se and the iPad Air 3 in the month of March.
While the next-generation iPhone (the iPhone 7?) is still months away from the official unveiling, the rumors mill has already started tossing out tidbits related to what the new iPhone model will come packed with. A recent report claims TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) has managed to secure 100% orders for Apple’s A10 chip that the company will be using to manufacture its iPhone 7 model.
Apple has finally released the 3rd beta of iOS 9.3 to all those enrolled in the Public Beta testing program. Apple has already released the same beta to registered iOS developers, and it took the company just another additional day to make the same beta version available to the public beta testers.
If you are an Apple employee and have a valid Apple account, you’ll be surprised to know that your Apple account’s login details are worth thousands of Euros. According to a new report from BusinessInsider, hackers are offering Apple employees in Ireland thousands of Euros for valid login details of their Apple account.
Apple has always been very keep of making its mobile operating system a secure one and the fruit company has its own way of doing so, even if it involves bricking the devices. A recently reported error 53 is one such example which Apple claims to be a security measure but it effectively bricks or disables iPhones with Touch ID repairs done by a third party repair center. The controversy went so viral that it is now attracting the attention of top law firms, which are reportedly considering taking Apple to court over consumer’s devices being rendered useless, reports The Guardian.
3rd-party repairs provide such repairs that you usually won’t notice the difference and are often way cheaper than getting services from official Apple Stores. But, with iOs 9 update, things seems to be changing. Apple’s iOS 9 software update is reportedly bricking devices that have gone through third-party repairs and some of the components have been replaced with unofficial alternatives.
We often see some awesome pieces of conceptual designs for the future iPhone devices and most of them are impractical but still fanciful. This latest iPhone 7 concept is as unlikely as any other impractical future iPhone concepts, but the designer has made the concept an incredibly cool one by adding a 5-inch secondary display on the back, water-resistance to a design that is just 3mm thick with an edge-to-edge main display.
When you are going to buy an iPhone, you end up choosing from the three available storage capacities: the bare-bone 16GB model, and the models with more storage capacity such as 64GB and 128GB. The later two are probably the best options for you given the current capabilities of the video cameras and size of the latest iOS apps and games. However, getting a model with larger capacity does cost you more; $100 more for moving up to 64GB from 16GB and a staggering $200 for moving up to 128GB from 16GB. If paying that much to get more storage capacity is going to be too much for you, then you’ll be happy to learn that there is a cheaper alternative but for that, you must be visiting Shenzhen, China.
