The company Apple is going to start selling its new product iWatch in 2013. According to the publication Bloomberg, on the development of hours Apple has a team of 100 people.
It is reported that iWatch be able to perform some functions of the iPhone and iPad: make calls and see the name of the caller during an incoming call, see a map showing the current location and so on. Also, watch iWatch receive a pedometer and heart rate measurement sensor.
According to Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White, Apple iPhone 5S would launch in two or three different screen sizes.
“We also walked away with the view that Apple will release the iPhone 5S in at least two screen sizes this summer and possibly three. We continue to target July as the launch date. Essentially, we believe Apple is coming around to the fact that one size per iPhone release does not work for everyone and offering consumers an option has the potential to expand the Company’s market share.” White said.
Japanese website Macotakara has released a report suggesting that the iPhone 5S will come in five different colors, including the original black and white. Report also adds that the iPhone 5S will be announced in July, with a release to follow in August.
Forget about the iPhone 5 (released in September, 2012), lets just move right on to the iPhone 6. French NAK Design is already imagining the iPhone 6, In the mockup the home button has moved from below the screen to the side of the phone, now to be used with the thumb. This allows for a much larger screen, in this case with a 125 mm x 63 mm dimension, 4.9-inch in total. We definitely like the clean looks, what do you think?
Here below are some new iPhone 6 concept design pictures….
One downside of Apple changing the size of the display on the new iPhone is that all your iPhone wallpapers no longer fit properly without being stretched. Whilst Apple has included some new default wallpapers and made them all in the new iPhone 5 resolution, sometimes you just want a bit more choice. Thankfully quite a few people have already done the work to recreate their wallpapers for the new 1136 x 640 resolution of the iPhone 5. Below you’ll find some of the best iPhone 5 wallpapers.
When it comes to upgrading your phone, there’s one very big question that most people have: iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S III? Answering it is not easy.
Let’s get one thing out of the way first, the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III are both excellent smartphones. Both are top of their class, both very impressive in the experience they deliver, and of that there is no doubt.
Screen Size: First, let’s talk about screen size. The iPhone 5 has grown, it’s up to 4 inches; the first size upgrade since the phone debuted. This means a taller, larger screen that iPhone fans have been waiting for.
If you want real size, the Samsung Galaxy S3 has the numbers, 4.8 inches to be exact. This is more real estate for your viewing pleasure.
Screen Display: With the iPhone 5, you get their well-known Retina display on the 4-inch touchscreen. There is a 1136×640 resolution, or 326 ppi (pixels per inch). There is a fingerprint-resistant coating on the front.
In the Galaxy S3, you get a slightly better resolution of 1280×720, but due to the larger 4.8-inch size the ppi is slightly less. The HD Super AMOLED screen on the GS3 is very bright and attractive.
Processor: The iPhone 5, no exaggeration, is lightning quick. Apple did a bang-up job with its dual-core Apple A6 processor, and you won’t be waiting long to do anything. But Galaxy S3 is definitely up to pace, in fact it’s even faster. Its 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor is nothing to sneeze at (the European version is even better with a quad-core processor). Multitasking will not slow it down in the least, even if it involves intensive apps such as Pandora Radio or Netflix. In the area of RAM, the iPhone 5 features 1 GB, but the GS3 features a whopping 2GB of RAM.
Storage: You can get the iPhone with various storage levels – 16, 32 or 64 GB, but no upgradability in the iPhones. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is available in 16GB or 32 GB options, plus it has a microSD slot, which allows for up to 64GB, so the potential for more storage space is there on the GS3.
Battery: 4G phones are notorious for sucking up battery, but with proper management of your features like WiFi and Bluetooth, you can make them last longer. Samsung’s GS3 slightly outlasted Apple’s iPhone in my testing, and both were among the better 4G phones I’ve seen so far. They got me through the day and then some, unless I was just going crazy with my app use.
Cameras: More and more these days, people skip the standalone digital camera and rely on their smartphones. As a result, there are high expectations in this regard. Both the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S3 have fantastic cameras, and fantastic video quality too. Both devices have an 8-megapixel camera in the rear, as well as crystal-clear 1080p HD video that looks amazing and life-like on replay. They do well in low light, for the most part, compared to previous versions of these phones. In the area of front camera, which is used primarily for video chat, the GS3 does a little better with its 1.9-megapixel camera. The iPhone 5 front camera comes in at 1.2 megapixels. Both phones’ front camera feature 720p HD video quality.
Operating Systems: This is really the big difference between these two phones.
Apple’s iPhone 5 runs the latest version of Apple’s operating system – iOS 6. This features integration with Apple’s ecosystem – iTunes, iBooks, etc. When you use an iPhone, you’re in Apple’s world. Some people like that, others don’t. With the Galaxy S3, you get Android 4.0 (aka Ice Cream Sandwich), and an update promised soon to Android 4.1 (aka Jelly Bean), and you’re in Google’s world here – Google Maps, Google Voice, Gmail, etc.
APPS: Apple, of course, was out with its iPhone before Android phones ever hit the market, so they got a big jump on the competition in terms of having better app selection. And it’s true that pretty much whatever you need to do with an app, Apple’s got you covered on the iPhone. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the Android competition loses this battle. It may have gotten a later start, but in the past several years Google’s Android Market has grown by leaps and bounds, and I would say at this point it’s caught up to Apple’s App Store in terms of offering whatever you might need in the app department.
4G Networks: The big news about the iPhone 5 is that it’s (finally) capable of accessing the 4G networks of its carriers. The iPhone is offered on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, who all have their own 4G LTE networks. Verizon and AT&T’s networks are the most expansive right now, and Sprint’s is newer so its reach is limited.
The Galaxy S3 is available on all four major wireless networks – Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. It’s basically the same phone on all four networks, other than some carrier-specific software that’s included on each version of the phone, plus the fact that it will access a different 4G network, depending which version you buy.
Apple launched its new iPhone 5 last month, so it’s time to start thinking about cases. Many iPhone 5 cases are already available on the internet, some of them are shown below and do not hesitate to let us know in the comments which iPhone 5 case you like the most.
The iOS platform is extremely robust and well polished and thus provides developers and designers the opportunity to really get creative and make truly impressive works of art. So what are phone apps? Now a days iOS app development of different fields like business, entertainment, social networking, shopping, navigation, browsing etc is effectively using in mobile industry. Due to the increasing number of iPhone users, organizations can reach the customers in easy and effective ways via iPhone mobile applications.
We have compiled some iOS apps with new features that the latest iOS version contains.
The free offline route planning and local exploring app allows you to navigate where you need to go without having to rely on your mobile connection. It provides detailed street maps and millions of useful points of interest, as well as the ability to locate local restaurants, stores, gas stations and more using quality 2D maps. But it also allows for an in-app upgrade to get 3D maps and voice-guided navigations.
Now it’s easier than ever to interact with the world’s largest social network. Facebook is one of the world’s most powerful communication tools which is capable of keeping family all over the world in contact. Those people with an iPhone know how great the Facebook application is on the iPhone.
FaceTime now works over cellular networks as well as Wi-Fi, so you can make and receive FaceTime calls wherever you happen to be. You can even make and receive FaceTime calls on your iPhone using your phone number. That means you can use FaceTime wherever you are, on any device. iPhone 5 has a camera on the front — perfectly tuned for FaceTime chatting — and an iSight camera on the back. You can switch between cameras during a call. So whoever you’re chatting with can see you, or they can see what you see.
Regarded by many as one of the best iOS email clients available, Sparrow is designed to provide an easy to use and efficient email system. With full IMAP support, the app is compatible with a wide range of email accounts, displays conversations in threads, and lets you directly attach photos and images when sending messages. You can deal with several email addresses within one account, enabling you to access both personal and business email while still keeping them separate.
Beautifully designed from the ground up (and the sky down), Maps changes the way you see the world. Map elements are vector based, so graphics and text are incredibly detailed — even when you zoom all the way in — and panning is smooth. Tilt and rotate to view an area, and Maps keeps the names of streets and places where they belong. Get visual and spoken turn-by-turn navigation and real-time traffic updates.
Apple just announced a new iOS app on-stage at WWDC called Passbook that aims to store all of your “passes” — a category that includes boarding passes, store cards, and movie tickets. This could be a boon for consumers, but bad news for Square and other startups. The idea is to create one app that replaces a lot of the clutter in your wallet. So you can open up Passbook whenever you need to board a flight, get into a movie, or get a discount at the store — it looks like the passes are mostly, but not exclusively, redeemed using QR codes.
Shared Photo Stream
Now you can share just the photos you want, with just the people you choose. Simply select photos from the Photos app, tap the Share button, choose who you want to share your photos with, and they’re on their way. Friends using iCloud on an iOS 6 device get the photos delivered immediately in the Photos app or iPhoto.
iOS 6 brings even better web browsing to your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch through Safari. iCloud Tabs keeps track of which pages you have open on your devices, so you can start browsing on one device and pick up right where you left off, on whatever device is handy. Safari now saves web pages — not just links — in your Reading List, so you can catch up on your reading even when you can’t connect to the Internet.
Siri will soon be able do a lot more! She’ll speak more languages and provide the latest scores and stats for games, she’ll provides the latest movie reviews and showtimes and find the best restaurants in town and make reservations!
So iPhone 4S users already have Siri and she’s supposed to get better, but those who don’t have the latest version can get Vlingo for free, which is a voice activated virtual assistant for your iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4. The free download probably won’t be as smart as the newest Siri, but something is better than nothing.
