Apple's iPhone 6 – What We Know So Far

4/22/2014 01:48:00 PM - 0 comments

The iPhone 6 is something we are seeing more and more about as the weeks go by. There are so many rumors and reports doing the rounds that it can be difficult to keep up with everything. That is why we have created this post as a complete run down of everything we know so far about the upcoming iPhone 6. There are still approximately 5 months left to go before its release and any of the information we have received so far could be inaccurate and subject to change. Below is a run down of what know.

The features and specs mainly revolve around the size of the display and according to reports Apple is once again preparing two iPhone 6 models for release later this year. Both are thought to be larger than any iPhone we have seen so far and we are expecting a 4.7 inch model and a 5.5 inch mode. It is also rumored that the iPhone 6 will have a bezel free display. We have also heard that this new iPhone will feature a full 1080p display.

Rumors also suggest that the power button will be relocated to the edge of the handset alongside the redesigned volume buttons. In case leaks, we have seen that the rear side of the iPhone will take on a iPad Air-esque design whilst the front will boast and edge-to-edge display, allowing the screen to increase in size without leaving the device itself feeling too large. Leaks have also suggested that the battery size will increase. The leaked front panel that we have seen also suggests that the front of the device will be very much like the iPhone 5s, except that it will have a proportionately larger display of 4.7 inches.

The camera is also set to receive improvements and according to the most recently leaked information, the rear-facing iPhone 6 camera will be 10 megapixels. The Touch ID fingerprint sensor is also going to see some improvements with better “efficiency” being mentioned in several reports. We have also seen reports that suggest that the iPhone 6 will have sapphire glass display. Analyst Timothy Arcuri reckons that the iPhone 6 will pack Gigabit Wi-Fi standard, which would make hotspot connectivity faster and more efficient.

Other features will include iWatch integration, a heart rate sensor and of course iOS 8. We expect the iPhone 6 4.7 inch model to announced in September and it has been rumored that the price will increase by approximately $100.

That's our run down for the moment but with plenty of time still left to go, we are sure we will see a lot more leaks and rumors before September.

This $5 iPhone App Is Free For Limited Time

4/15/2014 12:27:00 PM - 0 comments

Apps are great and what's better than an app that normally cost you $5 being given for free. Printer Pro, created by Readdle, is free for a limited time via the App Store and is well worth getting your hands on. It is going to be available for 24 hours according to the App Store and we recommend that you go and download it now so you don't miss out.

Printer Pro is great and it will give you a way to print just about anything from your iPhone. The app can talk to most Wi-Fi printers on its own, and those who have standard printers attached to Macs and PC on the network can also be used thanks to a helper app that can be installed and best of all, that's free too. Printer Pro comes with a great iOS 7 design aesthetic that is colorful and yet understated.

Once installed you will find that this app will pop up in other apps' share sheets which means that anything that can normally be shared can be printed via Printer Pro. On top of this, if you put a “p” before a web address in Safari, the web page will open in Printer Pro ready to be printed. This really is a useful app to have in your arsenal and even at the usual price of $4.99, it is worth it.

Right now though, it is being offered free so you have no excuse not to download it right away before the price returns to normal. It doesn't matter if you don't use it right away as it will come in handy at some stage. You can download Printer Pro for the iPhone now at the App Store.


Case Leak For iPhone 6 Confirms Thinner Design and Larger Display

4/11/2014 12:22:00 PM - 0 comments

The iPhone 6 is seems to be the biggest talking point at the moment. Due for release later this year, this Apple handset is causing quite a stir at the moment. More and more reports are reporting a thinner design and a larger display and a case leak seems to be confirming this at the moment. Following on from a recent influx of schematics leaks and other information relating to the iPhone 6's form factor, a new mock up of an iPhone case looks to be proving all these theories right.

Now we know that leaks aren't always an ideal way of gauging an unannounced, unconfirmed device and case leaks, which can easily be faked, are perhaps even less reliable. Today's leak is a mere graphic depicting a case, and while it does seem to corroborate several rumors, we still don't have 100% confirmation on just how accurate a representation it is of the iPhone 6.

Chinese iPhone case make Elam Enterprises is the company that is behind this particular mock up and you can view the images at NoWhereElse.fr. These images show that Apple will depart from the 4 inch Retina display first introduced with the iPhone 5 and that the power button may also change its location. KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested that the power/sleep button could finally be relocated from its regular spot atop the device because the larger display would make it more difficult to reach it.

The image also gives us a glimpse at the thinner overall design, and with reports indicating that the iPhone 6 will borrow many of its aesthetics from the iPad Air, you will see it clearly in this image. The iPhone 6 looks set to offer a 4.7 inch display, with a larger model boasting a 5.5 inch panel. It has been suggested though that the larger model will be delayed due to production issues. The iPhone 6 is due for release in September and we are also expecting an iWatch device to arrive then too.

It looks like Apple fans are in for an exciting couple of months with plenty of announcements being made. What are you looking forward to most?


New iOS 8 And OS X 10.10 Details Emerge Following WWDC Announcement

4/08/2014 02:19:00 PM - 0 comments

This year's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) will kick off in June as it does every year. The official announcement came last week and we now can't wait to see what will be uncovered from the 2nd of June. Adding to what we already know about iOS 8 and OS X 10.10, more information is emerging with regards to what Apple might have in store for this summer and beyond.

According to a report over a 9to5Mac, the forthcoming version of iOS which we assume will be iOS 8, is currently being referred to under the codename Okemo. From what we've already learned so far about Okemo, we know that the Healthbook app will be one of the central pieces and while this feature may also integrate with the unconfirmed “iWatch” device, we will see Apple finally latch onto the lucrative health and wellbeing market.

9to5Mac's report also suggests that Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) support will be added to the next iPhone and as such, the updated software will be duly configured to facilitate the new technology. VoLTE would certainly improve call quality and efficiency thanks to the robust and technologically advanced nature of the LTE networks, although given the T-Mobile is the only carrier with a fully operational VoLTE system in place, it will be interesting to see how Apple plays this.

Another thing we have heard is that iOS 8 will be giving iTunes Radio a proper identity with its own standalone app. This move should help to promote and support a streaming service that hasn't really gotten off its feet since it rolled out with iOS 7. Maps, which has suffered since it's disastrous launch with iOS 6, is also in line for improvement, bringing a standard of functionality comparable to the systems offered by the likes of Google and Nokia.

OS X, meanwhile will focus on design changes and given the flatter, cleaner look of iOS nowadays, we are expecting that the desktop software will follow in very much the same fashion. We will learn more from June 2nd when Apple will take to the stage at the Moscone Center in San Francisco and we can't wait to see what they have in store.


WWDC 2014 Dates Announced, Get Ready For iOS 8 Beta 1

4/04/2014 12:26:00 PM - 0 comments

Apple has just confirmed the WWDC event for 2014. It will commence the week beginning June 2nd and tickets will be drawn in the format of a lottery with developers able to apply from now until the 7th of April via the official WWDC site. After this date, tickets will be drawn randomly. WWDC tickets usually sell out in a matter of minutes and this strategy is so much fairer to all those looking to come along and see what announcements Apple has to make.

The main topic of conversation for this event is undoubtedly iOS 8 which will be the next major update to Apple's mobile operating system. Last year iOS 7 brought us some of the most obvious visual changes since the iPhone's inception back in 2007 and it is widely reckoned that iOS 8 will offer a number of alterations to the general functionality as well as an abundance of new apps.

Healthbook, is going to be Apple's first substantial effort to capitalize on the market for fitness and wellbeing related apps and as the name implies, it is expected to borrow its card like UI from Passbook which we first saw in 2012 with the arrival of iOS 6. Healthbook will have the ability to monitor everything from heart rate to calories burned and it looks like it is going to be more than just a token gesture to fitness fanatics and could actually serve as the marquee feature of the iOS 8 update.

Along with iOS 8, Apple will also showcase the next update to OS X and although we have no idea yest what it is going to be called, it is widely suspected that the flatter, cleaner iOS 7 interface is going to influence its design. Since OS X Mountain Lion, we have witnessed the gradual iOS-ification of Apple's desktop operating system and given their need for uniformity across the board, it is anticipated that the skeuomorphic elements of Mavericks will make way for an aesthetic in tune with Jony Ive's software design visions.

WWDC 2014 promises a great deal and if you want to put your name in the hat and get your hands on a ticket than all you have to do is head over the official WWDC site. We can't wait to see what Apple are going to announce during their annual event and we can't wait to relay the information to you guys either.


Winocm Releases Tool For iPhone and iPad Allowing Dual Boot of iOS 7 and iOS 6

4/01/2014 04:33:00 PM - 0 comments

When Winocm showed everyone how he could dual boot in his recent videos, he gave us all hope and today he has gone a step further and released a tool-set that will allow those interested to try their hand at booting different firmware versions on the same device. We should point out though, that these utilities should probably only be used for those of you that have some knowledge when it comes to hacking.

Winocm got a lot of attention over the weekend and it looks like he has washed his hands of the entire development noting that the tools are probably cr*p and that no support or warranty will be give. While a lot of iOS tinkerers are keen to make progress with regards to dual and triple booting, Winocm is not as enthusiastic, but with these tools now out in the open, there is the potential for anyone to latch onto them and improve what has already been done.

This isn't the first time that Winocm has demonstrated more than one version of iOS installed on an iDevice at any given time, but having showcased iOS 5.1, iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 7.0.6 running triple boot on his iPad last week, he was inundated with messages from Twitter followers who were curious about the tools and methods used and whether they would ever get their hands on them. Today we can say that the tools have arrived but the method used remains scarce. We would recommend that these should only be used if you have some prior knowledge because Winocm isn't offering any guarantees so anything you do is at your own risk. Winocm's GitHub contains everything you need to get started so if you feel brave then go ahead and see if you can get multiple versions of iOS running on your device.


iPad Hacked To Triple Boot iOS 7, 6 And 5

3/27/2014 09:00:00 AM - 0 comments

Jailbreaking is always something we are interested in. We love reading about the possibilities and looking at the kinds of tihngs that it makes possible. The doors that jailbreaking opens are often far beyond the idea of simply being able to skin an iOS device. We are big fans of iOS here but we do know that for many, the ultimate goal for many who jailbreak is to run Google's Android system on it just for the sake of it. Being able to run Android on hardware like that offered by Apple is a great bonus and it looks like this could be very possible.

Running Android on an Apple device isn't a new thing and it has been done before. Pre-Apple A4 devices were hacked to run Android but what if you would like to do this on something more recent? Yep it is possible and hacker Winocm posted a video on Twitter showing him dual-booting an iPad 2 with both iOS 5 and iOS 6 and then later triple booting iOS 5, iOS 6 and iOS 7 all on the same iPad. This may not seem like much when trying to get Android to run on such this A5 processor device, but there is more to it.

Hacker iH8sn0w revealed on his Twitter account that the way Winocm managed to work his magic could indeed open the door to an Android port in the future. It turns out, that Winocm achieved what he did by “bootstrappingn to iBoot from the Kernal (userland)”, which both of these hackers agree means that there is now hope for getting Android to run on Apple A5 powered devices. We have to keep an eye on things to see what happens in the future but in the meantime, you can watch the video below.


iOS 7 App Lets You Send Messages Without An Internet Connection

3/25/2014 11:46:00 AM - 0 comments

We love iOS 7 and the great new features that came with it. Apple designed it to have an instant impact on the functionality and usability of its mobile OS. Not everything however, has immediate benefits. Apple added something called Multipeer Connectivity Framework with iOS 7 and this technology allows multiple devices, which don't have to be connected to the internet, to interact in a manner known as mesh networking. This is done by using connectivity in the form of Wi-Fi networks, peer-to-peer Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

You can use this new infrastructure by getting the iOS app called FireChat. It allows users to hold group conversations with those close by without the need for an internet connection. There are some situations where this could be very useful but because this is new technology, it does have its flaws. When we tested FireChat, we found that in terms of who might end up talking to, the possibilities are endless which in itself is a problem. On top of that, there isn't a great deal of structure to the networking aspect of the app. Further development and improvement in the way the Multipeer framework is used could see a great deal of potential for this new technology.

One place where this could prove invaluable is in disaster situations where cellular signal and normal Wi-Fi hotspots are at a premium. By connecting using a chat app like FireChat, people could establish a form of communication even when traditional systems have been hindered and in turn this could save a lot of lives. There are a lot more possibilities for this type of technology and we have to wait and see what becomes of this emerging form of peer-to-peer tech.


iOS 7.1 Untethered Jailbreak Demoed On Video

3/20/2014 01:42:00 PM - 0 comments

Apple has released iOS 7.1 and with this they plugged the jailbreak exploits that made the previous Evasi0n untethered jailbreak possible. This has meant that jailbreakers have had to stick with iOS 7.0.x or upgrade and give up their jailbreak and access to Cydia. The pre iOS 7.1 efforts by the Evad3rs team must be commended and they haven't given up yet. Seasoned hacker Winocm has just released a video of iOS 7.1 booting untethered.

What we do know about Winocm is that he tends to look at older devices and pieces of firmware and it looks like he has used an iPhone 4 powered by the Apple A4 processor in his video. The older models are easier to hack and of course less relevant than the more recent devices. Nevertheless, this is great progress and it really does give us hope for an eventual jailbreak for iOS 7.1. If nothing else, this video show that work is being done to try and find exploits.

It is worth remembering, that the jailbreak community are becoming less and less vocal about their findings so as not to give too much away in their ongoing battle with Apple. So while this video is a promising insight, it doesn't necessarily mean that an iOS 7.1 jailbreak will be released to the public. This video could however mean that a jailbreak for iOS 7.1 could be made available for those using A4 devices. You can check out Winocm's video below and in the meantime, if you have a jailbroken device using the Evasi0n jailbreak, do not update to iOS 7.1.
