Apple is working large 13" iPad [Photos]



New rumors from the Chinese United Daily News claims that Apple is working with Quanta on a larger iPad. Macrumors report:

Quanta Computer is an Apple supplier responsible for Apple’s current MacBook Airs and an unusual choice for tablet production as those devices are currently produced by suppliers like Foxconn and Pegatron. The report claims, however, that Quanta is aiming to diversify.

This summer WSJ reported that Apple was asking to see prototypes of an iPad measuring slightly less than 13-inches diagonally.

So how would this big iPad look like? Take a look at the mockups below:

Apple Releases New 'Greetings' Ads for the iPhone 5c



The company from Cupertino has released new 'Greetings' ads to promote its plastic iPhone 5c. On the Apple’s official YouTube channel one can watch either the two separate 30-second clips - Greetings and Greetings Too - or the so-called extended cut, which is one-minute long.

As to the plot of the short video, it is rather simple and reminds Apple’s previous ads. People of various nationalities and speaking different languages use the colorful gadget to communicate and express emotions. The ad looks simple, but still it gently prompts you to buy the new gadget. And this, I believe, is what the advertisement should do - prompt, not persuade.

You can watch the Greetings (extended cut) below. Enjoy!

New York Police Department Encourages People to Update to iOS 7



The New York City Police Department is asking people to upgrade to iOS 7. This is all due to its improved security and, among the rest - due to the ‘Activation Lock’ feature.

According to some police officials, the seventh version of the Apple’s mobile operating system is probably the most protected.

After months of pressure from a global coalition of elected officials and law enforcement agencies, we are pleased that Apple is set to release a new mobile operating system that includes a theft deterrent feature called Activation Lock. This is an important first step towards ending the global epidemic of smartphone theft.

Looks like the new iPhones are really worth purchasing devices.

iFixIt Tears Apart the New Plastic iPhone 5c



iFixIt experts have teared apart the new Apple’s plastic iPhone to show us what’s inside of the long-expected gadget. This happened on Friday - the day, when the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were officially launched in the United States and several other countries.

The iPhone 5c can boast of a 1510mAh battery, Apple A6 processor and 1GB or RAM. All this makes it very similar to the iPhone 5. Still, it differs from it very much.

Although both new iPhones sport a similar construction and share some internals, don’t get your hopes up too high for parts cross-compatibility, thanks to the differences between the display assemblies and the differently-sized FaceTime/speaker connectors.

Below you may watch the iFixIt roundup of the iPhone 5c teardown.

Boot Speed Test: iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5



iClarified has compared the boot speed of the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5. Below you may watch the video, which proves that the new flagship is the first to boot. Well, nothing unusual here. Then comes the plastic iPhone and right after him - the fifth-gen iPhone.

As I’ve mentioned before, the iPhone 5s with a brand new 64-bit processor was the fastest. It took only 20.5 seconds for it to boot. The boot speed of the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5 is 25.9 and 29.0 seconds respectively. You should note though, that the devices were restored to iOS 7 before the testing and contained no user data. So the actual boot speed may vary.

Here’s the boot speed ‘competition’ video.
