It’s Sunday again, so I’ve decided to take a brief look at the most interesting posts of the last week. Let’s not waste time on senseless introductions and talk about recent Apple news right now.
Although Apple admitted that iPhone 5c sales are lower than expected, this device is still way more popular than any Blackberry, Windows Phone or Android flagship. Yep, this mid-tier smartphone managed to outsell even Galaxy S4 in the winter quarter.
Those who got drunk at least once in their life know that it is very difficult to overcome the temptation to write someone a message. It doesn’t really important whom to text: your ex-girlfriend, boss or a close friend.
At the same time, if you’re loaded, it might be very difficult to hit the required button on the iPhone screen. As a result, an addressee often receives a misspelled message, which lacks both sense and form. What is the way out? Drunk Mode tweak for iPhone that prevents you from sending iMessages while you’re dead drunk.
Back in October, a normally reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities claimed that Apple will release a new 12-inch MacBook with a display resolution of 2732 x 1536 pixels in 2014. Looks like he was right. According to a new report that appeared on the Internet yesterday, the company from Cupertino is indeed working on a new MacBook Air. As to the MacBook Pro, there won’t be any updated model until September.
Apple is currently thinking about launching an iTunes Store app for Android, Billboard reports. Apart from that, the guys from Cupertino may soon start working on a new subscription-based music streaming service. The main reason for such radical actions is quite obvious: U.S. digital album sales have recently started to fall.
According to some anonymous insiders, Apple won’t equip its next-generation iPhone with a 13-megapixel camera. Instead, the guys from Cupertino will try to improve the existing 8-megapixel sensor in order to make the photos you take look better.
What do you think about such statement: iPhone users replace their devices with newer ones more frequently than iPad users? In fact, it turns out to be truth. According to the latest report from CIRP, people who own an iPhone change it for a newer version once every two years. iPad and especially Mac users spend money on new tablets or desktops much less frequently. Take a look at the chart.
According to Wall Street Journal, the number of iPhone users has increased one million last month thanks to the launch of the smartphones on China Mobile network in mid-January. The mobile operator has declared that the annual sales of the company are falling for the first time over the last ten years due to tough competition.
Winocm has posted a video demonstrating an untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1 on a Verizon iPhone 4 (n92).
The Fortune published a list of World's 50 Greatest Leaders. Apple CEO Tim Cook occupies the 33rd place.
Following Steve Jobs has arguably been the toughest corporate leadership assignment in decades, yet Cook has carried it off with mostly quiet aplomb. In 2½ years he has kept the parade of winning new products marching (the Retina display, new operating systems, the iPhone 5), and he is bringing in Burberry's savior, Angela Ahrendts, to run Apple's retail stores. That's thinking different.
According to a new, but immensely popular among the users thread on Apple's Support forum, iOS 7.1 contains a bug that causes Personal Hotspot issues. The problem has been reported by iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s owners, that is why you’d better not update to the latest iOS version if you often use this iOS feature.
Looks like the guys from Cupertino work hard to release new versions of their software as soon as possible. Following the yesterday’s release of OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 and iTunes 11.1.6, Apple today seeded Safari 7.0.3 for OS X Mavericks and Safari 6.1.3 for OS X Mountain Lion and OS X Lion to developers for testing purposes.
According to a normally reliable analyst Katy Huberty of Morgan Stanley, iPhone sales can be stronger than expected this quarter and there’re several possible reasons for that. Let’s take a brief look at these reasons.
Very often we have to deal with iPhone, iPad or iWatch concepts, but very rarely designers come up with their Apple TV models. Today I’d like to share with you an 'Apple TV touch' concept that was created by CURVED/labs and features a touchscreen remote.
As you know, Apple on Tuesday released a cheaper 8GB iPhone 5c model. However, it is currently available only in several countries, namely, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia and China. Surprisingly, the company from Cupertino didn’t launch the handset in the United States. And it won’t do that at all, at least now,
