Apple is updating support pages





Apple.com has recently had its Support pages updated. This event follows the previous redesign made on the rest of the website.  Today most support pages were updated, such as Videos, Manuals, Tech Specs, and Downloads.

Before, the Support pages used to look out-of-date as compared with the rest of the website. Moreover, some problems could be faced when searching information on these pages. The updated version features product menu, so that one could search for manuals related to a specific item. Another improvement concerns search results sorted by product.

The last but not least, since now the Support pages will boast the same design as Apple online store.

Here’s another suggestion on how would the new lower-cost iPhone look like. This time it’s Martin Hajek, who made some renderings and 3D models of something that would be a very nice device if released.

iPhone 5S will boast a 120 FPS Slow Motion Camera?



Every new iPhone always features its own unique points, completely different from what its predecessors had. In case of iPhone 5S there are quite a few. The rumored fingerprint scanner is followed by another development – a 120FPS slow motion camera. It is believed that iPhone 5S will also boast really cool camera pack, including a dual LED flash and a 13MP sensor.

Currently Apple is designing a new camera feature for iPhone. It is a mode called “Mogul”. The latter will enable iPhone to capture video in a fast and precise way, at a rate of 120 frames-per-second (FPS). Unfortunately, the resolution of the 120 FPS is still unclear.

Apple's Poster to Commemorate the Fifth AppStore Birthday



Looks like Apple has hired a new guy responsible for all kinds of graphics and the way Apple gadgets look. At first he paints new ‘cheap’ iPhones red, green and yellow, then completely redesigns iOS 7 and after that persuades the executives to register a new FaceTime logo, which he likes immensely, as a trademark.

Well, there’re probably some other reasons for all that to happen, of course, but it really seems that Apple is currently centered primarily on the appearance – in addition to the things mentioned above, it has released a new poster commemorating the fifth anniversary of AppStore, Tim Bradshaw of Financial Times reports.

Apple corners mobile ad market.



iOS products are used to being outnumbered by Android, although Apple manages to become a market leader in advertisement sector. According to a recent study, Apple controls 75% of mobile ads market.

The share of Android is diminishing, as Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphones are delivering hardly any impressions.

Ad firm Velti studied the mobile advertising market of Apple and Android, comparing figures of May 2013 to findings from 2012. The share ofCupertinocompany grew by 5%, from 59% to 64%. Whereas Android decreased its presence on the market by 5% to 36%, despite its domination of smartphone shipments.

There is jailbreak for iOS 7



 

iOS 7 has been jailbroken. Popular iOS developer Ryan Petrich has posted a screenshot which appears to show Activator running on iOS 7.

Earlier today Petrich tweeted saying, "System version too new?". Alongside the tweet was the picture below. The picture shows the Springboard of an iPod touch with an Activator icon and a UIAlert window which reads:

System Version Too New
Activator has not been tested to work with this version of iOS. Some features may not work as designed.

Notably, this alert does not seem to be a UIAlert that could be generated from within a sandboxed application, suggesting that device may be jailbroken.

Here is how future low cost iPhone might look like



New renderings of the low cost iPhone based on recently leaked schematics have been posted online by AppleInsider.com.

On the left side, the volume controls are pill shaped, like the iPod touch, rather than circular, like the iPhone 5. The back corners of the device are also curved, bearing a resemblance to Apple's iPod classic. Aside from those tweaks, the anticipated handset is unmistakably an iPhone, featuring the standard home button and a 4-inch display. The leaked design is slightly thicker than an iPhone 5, and is expected to have a plastic back panel to keep costs down.

Here are the renderings:
