Yes, you read it right, iPhone 5 is Jailbroken. This news came from very popular Jailbreak developer Chpwn who tweeted a screenshot of Jailbroken iPhone 5. Yes, you can see Cydia icon on iPhone 5’s larger resolution. Read more…
Yesterday, Apple rolled out iOS 6 for iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 2 and the new iPad. While the New iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5G will be shipped with iOS6. Just like the GM version of iOS 6, you can Jailbreak the iOS 6 using the Redsn0w 0.9.13dev4.
Looks like there is some software hidden up Apple’s sleeve as well, alongside the iPad Mini that is expected to be unveiled at the media event on October 23. Previously we have been hearing a lot about the iPad Mini and how Apple is finally going to show it to the world. This is the first time that we have heard that there might be some software related announcements as well. A screenshot of iTunes Store has revealed that iBooks 3.0 might also be announced at the iPad Mini release event.
There is one major reason why 7-inch tablets such as Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 have been a huge hit. They’re much easier to carry around and are quite portable, which also makes them great devices for reading books, magazines and other publications on. iBooks is an amazing software that Apple has developed and it serves the purpose of e-reading perfectly. So it is only logical for Apple to update and enhance its popular iBooks software ahead of a product release that is specifically geared towards this very market.
The iPad Mini is definitely going to be a device that people are going to use more for catching up on their favorite reading material as compared to the main iPad. The device itself is expected to boast an impressive resolution of 1024×768 pixels and the display could very well be Apple’s signature Retina Display.
Apart from the screenshot above, which has been obtained from a French source, there is nothing much that explains more about the upcoming iBooks 3.0 update. By the looks of it though, it will not be an incremental update and we can definitely see some major UI changes as well as the addition of new features to iBooks app.
We are fast approaching October 23, the day when Apple is hopefully going to announce iPad Mini. The invites for the event have already been sent out and in less than three days the curtain will be lifted. Much has been said and written about iPad Mini. Initially it was rumored that the device will be priced around $199, but according to a new report it is believed that iPad Mini price in USA will start from $329 for the base model.
It was initially believed that iPad Mini will be priced relatively low as compared to the main iPad. The low price was going to be introduced just so the iPad Mini could give competitors such as Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 a run for their money. However this recent report rules that out and begs the question, with iPad Mini base model starting from $329, is Apple going to jack up the price of fourth generation iPad base model when it is released in March 2013?
Rumor has it that in all there will be twelve different models of iPad Mini. These will be available in two colors believed to be black and white. These twelves models will have four different storage options, presumably 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. It is a possibility that there will be Wi-Fi, 3G, and 4G LTE models being sold separately in the aforementioned storage options.
Apart from this, it is rumored that iPad Mini will have a 7.85 inch display churning out an impressive resolution of 1024×768. An A5 processor is expected coupled with at least 1GB of RAM. Dual camera support has also been rumored.
In a much appreciated move, Apple has finally started shipping iPod touch 5th generation and the new iPod Nano that it announced alongside iPhone 5. At the event Apple had not revealed when exactly it was going to begin shipments of these products. After a waiting period of over a couple of weeks, Apple has finally started shipping these new iPod models.
Apple had started accepting pre-orders of these new iPod models the day they had been announced at the iPhone 5 release event. If you pre-ordered one of these devices online, you will be receiving the package soon or you can also choose to pick up your order at your nearest Apple Retail Store. Since these iPod models have now been launched, they are also readily available for purchase in Apple Retail Stores.
These new iPods come with Apple’s latest accessory called EarPods. They happen to be an update of the Apple Earphones, which have more or less been the same shape and design ever since they first came out. EarPods have a brand new design which aids in providing a good listening experience to the user. EarPods being shipped with iPod touch 5th generation and iPod Nano do not have a Remote and Mic.
These new iPod models come in a wide variety of colours for you to choose from. The iPod touch 5G is available for $299 for 32GB and $399 for 64GB. The new iPod Nano retails for $149 for 16GB model.
Are you tired of the pesky badges on the applications on icons on iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad? Indeed, these are very useful telling you about an important message or update about Apps. But sometimes these red badges sometimes become very annoying especially when they are present on mail or App Store applications.
There are certain tweaks available in Cydia Store which will help you to get rid of these badges, but there is a hidden feature in iOS 5 which allows you to remove these badges. You can disable the Notification badges right from the notification application in iOS 5 or 6. Follow the simple instructions below.
Open “Settings” and Tap on “Notifications”
From the list, select the application for which you want to remove the badges.
Scroll down and Turn “OFF” the “Badge App icon”
That’s it! You will not see badges again on that particular application. You can turn off Notification badges for all apps following the above mentioned procedure. Read more…
Unlocking an iPhone 5 is very hectic Job, especially when you are searching for a free method. There are different methods of unlocking. Currently, there is only one method effective for unlocking an iPhone 5 which is IMEI unlocking method. We have already posted that Apple N Berry offering IMEI unlocking of AT&T locked handset for $50. But your AT&T can be unlocked absolutely free of cost simply by restoring. Read after the Jump.
If you have purchased a contract-free iPhone 5 from Apple store, you can unlock it by simply restoring it via iTunes. According to Techcrunch:
We have confirmed the process with AT&T’s technical support and successfully tried it with a T-Mobile SIM card. After restoring the device in iTunes, the user is prompted with the usual unlocking message: “Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked.”
Previously, if you had purchased a contract-free iPhone 5 from AT&T, in order to unlock it, you would need to fill out a form online on AT&T website and send them back. The unlocking usually takes 5-7 days. But now, everything is changed; the Nation’s largest network has made it very easy. Simply, connect your iPhone with PC and restore it using iTunes. After restoring, your iPhone 5 will be automatically unlocked.
Other iPhone 5 users could make factory / permanent unlock for their iPhones for low prices from My IMEI Unlock.
If you are one of the kind who is obsessed with, and are in love with, their iDevices then you must already know that emailing pictures from your device has always been a tiresome task. But guess what? iOS 6 has come with a number of reliefs for you. Yes, you can select images right from the mail application. A few slides and then some taps and there you are, done with the picture sending task.
In iOS 6, all you have to do is to go to the mail composition screen and follow these simple steps:
- Open your e-mail account and select to compose a new mail.
- Drag your cursor in the body of the email.
- “Tap and Hold” there and an arrow will appear.
- An arrow will appear on the screen; Tap the “Insert Photo or Video” button that appears.
- Camera Roll is displayed, select the picture you want to send and tap on it to attach it.
- Send the email on your desired ID, as you normally do.
Steps one through five may be repeated over and over again to attach a group of photos in a single email. This not only makes it more convenient for you to select the desired pictures, but also makes the whole procedure a lot faster than it was, before.
The older ‘copy paste’ method, which was time consuming just because you had to switch between email and camera roll windows, is still available in the newer versions but thanks to the developers of iOS 6, we can do it more easily than ever. We suggest you to shift over to the new method and make yourself at ease.
No doubt, iPhone 5 is the best Smartphone which has most amazing camera among all Mobile Phones. Apple has even improved the camera in iPhone 5 which makes it very easy to capture great moments. Have you already captured many images in iPhone 4S? Did you just get a new iPhone 5 and wanted to transfer all the images into new iPhone? This post will help you to transfer all the images from your old iPhone 3GS, 4 and iPhone 4S to the New iPhone 5.
- Using iCloud:
The simplest and easiest method to transfer images from old iPhone 4/4S to new iPhone 5 is the iCloud. Simply enable the iCloud and “Photo Stream” in older device. To do this:
- Open Settings and Tap on iCloud.
- Login with your Apple ID
- Scroll down and Turn on Photo Stream
It will transfer all the images to iCloud. Now, simply enable the “Photo Stream” on iPhone 5 using the same method. Make sure your both iDevices are connected to Wi-Fi and it will automatically sync the photos. Open Photos from Home screen and Click Photo Stream to open all the photos.
- Using iTunes:
The other method of transferring the images to new iPhone is using iTunes. Connect your older iPhone with PC and open iTunes. Select the Photos from top slide and Enable Sync Photos from.
Now, in the left bar, Right Click on your iPhone and Hit on Backup.
Disconnect your older iPhone and connect the new iPhone. Follow the same method to enable Sync Photos but in last step instead of selecting Backup, Please Click on “Sync”
That’s it! In this way, all photos will be transferred from older iPhone to the new iPhone. There are many other paid applications available in the App Store which enables you to transfer photos from older iPhone to new iPhone 5 such as “Photo Transfer App” but it will cost you $2.99
How to Downgrade iOS 6 to 5.1.1 for iPhone 4, 3GS iPod Touch 4G? Well, iOS is a closed OS, you can update your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad by simply hitting the “Update” button in iTunes. However, Downgrading is not as easy as updating, because Apple doesn’t allow downgrading to previous iOS version. Thanks to Jailbreak developer, by the amazing tools we can downgrade to previous version.
With more than 200 amazing features, we have already seen many issues in iOS 6 such as poor build Maps, Wi-Fi issue and “Can’t connect to App Store” issue. We have already learnt that many users are having slow speed in App store while moving from one area to another. Many users believe that this problem is only due to improved graphics in App Store and is present in older devices. We have also suffered this problem even on iPad 3 and latest iPhone 4S.
This problem is basically due to an extra feature present in iOS6 which will cause a significant decrease in the transition speeds and will make working very slow. This slow speed can be faced while moving from Top Charts to categories or unveiling your download history. This problem is due to location base genius for Apps which uses location based services and will take more time as compared to normal app store. So, by turning it off, you will see improved speed in App Store.
- Open settings and scroll down and open “Privacy”
- From here, select “Location Services”
- Now, Scroll down and select the “System Services”
- Here, you will find “Genius for Apps”, Turn it off.
- After doing so, go back to Home screen and quit the “App Store”. Again launch it and problem should have been fixed now.
In case of any other problems, let us know in the comment s section below.
