It is believed that Apple is in the process of recruiting members to construct a new research and development center in Taiwan. The center will specialize on production of next generation iPhone devices.

This time we can see a Windows RT tablet and an iPad 4. Microsoft ad-makers claim that their device is surely better than the Apple gadget. Well, as usual, they show how the multitasking works, how to connect a USB flash drive to the Windows RT tablet and how the prices for both devices differ. Boring...
Polar recently conducted a poll, which shows that the users prefer the new iOS 7 interface to the iOS 6. It should be immediately noted, however, that the poll did not take into consideration the icons of both operating systems. And as you’ve probably heard, the icons design is the most widely criticized thing about the iOS 7.
Instagram for iOS was updated yesterday with the ability to share videos from the camera roll and automatically straighten the photos taken directly from the application. As to the full list of features, you can take a look at it below:
As you can see, the main differences are in the the ribbon cables and the screw placement. This means that some modifications were made to the logic board. Unfortunately, as you can see, there is nothing that could prove the appearance of the rumored fingerprint scanner in the new version.
No enjoy the photos!
Using one of three different adjustable clips and your Apple Lightning Cable (not included), HiRise positions the Lightning connector at a raised height to connect and charge your iPhone 5 or iPad mini. This allows HiRise to work with most cases, including cases with recessed connections no other dock can fit, like the OtterBox Defender, Speck CandyShell and, of course, the BookBook for iPhone. The rear support also adjusts forward and back to accommodate the different thicknesses of various cases and shells.

Last month it was found out that very few users are ready to pay for iOS 7 app updates on apps they already owned. Most of them would prefer to stay on iOS 6, rather than to update to iOS 7 and pay again for the apps.
Let's have at what developers think.
Craig Hockenberry, developer at Iconfactory (Twitterrific):
Like many of my fellow developers, I am in the middle of an update of an app for iOS 7. As you’d expect, it’s a lot more work than previous versions of iOS. But results are stunning: both David Lanham and I have commented that our shipping version was “feeling old and clunky.”
While cranking along on the update, a couple of thoughts occurred to me: how many other developers were doing the same thing and were they going to commit fully to iOS 7? The depth and breadth of the changes in iOS 7 makes it difficult to support older versions of the OS.
iPhones are being stolen very often. Many thefts are pretty difficult to investigate since the very first thing a thief does is he disables the Find My iPhone feature, gets rid of the SIM-card he got with the phone and restores the operating system. However, there’s one interesting case that shows a criminal, who has chosen another way.
This day can be called the day of ads since such tech giants as Apple (see the article below) and Nokia released new ads. And if the company from Cupertino simply advertises its FaceTime app, the guys from Finland mock the iPhone 5 camera and compare it to the Nokia Lumia 925’s photo sensor.
Apple has just released another ad from the popular series launched a bit earlier this year. This time it’s called "FaceTime Every Day" and as you might have guessed it shows the advantages of using the FaceTime app.
According to the latest rumors, Apple is going to change its main iMac supplier.
