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.

Learning iOS 7: Control Center [Video]



Here's a look at the new Control Center.

Control Center gives you quick access to the controls and apps you always seem to need right this second. Just swipe up from any screen — including the Lock screen — to do things like switch to Airplane mode, turn Wi-Fi on or off, or adjust the brightness of your display. You can even shine a light on things with a new flashlight. Never has one swipe given you so much control.

Do what you need to do. Quick.
Turn on or off Airplane mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Do Not Disturb. Lock your screen’s orientation or adjust its brightness. Play, pause, or skip a song. Connect to AirPlay-enabled devices. And quickly access your flashlight, timer, calculator, and camera.

Let's watch the video demo:

Learning iOS 7: Multitasking [Video]



Apple has greatly improved the multitasking switcher in iOS 7.

Multitasking has always been a smart way to switch between apps. Now it’s even smarter. Because iOS 7 learns when you like to use your apps and can update your content before you launch them. So if you tend to check your favorite social app at 9:00 a.m. every day, your feed will be ready and waiting for you. That’s multitasking in iOS 7. It knows what you want to do before you do.

A smarter way to multitask.
Press the Home button twice to see preview screens of the apps you have open. To quit an app, just swipe it up and out of preview.

Intelligently scheduled updates.
iOS schedules updates during power-efficient times. Like when your device is on and connected to Wi-Fi. So your battery isn’t drained unnecessarily.

Let's see how it works:
