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.
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.
Facebook has announced the release of updated app for iOS 7. The app is supposed to have a new look and it will be more user-friendly.
In the updated version it is easier to switch from News Feed to friend requests, messages or notifications by tapping the bottom of the screen. Moreover, by doing that you will get access to your Timeline, groups, events and more.
With iOS 7 you will have the translucent bar at the top of the app change dynamically when you scroll through different photos and posts. Besides, you can also swipe from left to right to return to News Feed.
Check the video of the new app below.
Here's a look at the new Notification Center that comes with iOS 7.
Notification Center lets you know about new mail, missed calls, to-dos that need doing, and more. And a new feature called Today gives you a convenient summary of, well, today. One glance at your iPhone and you’ll know if it’s a certain someone’s birthday, if you’ll need an umbrella, or if traffic will slow down your commute.1 You’ll even get a heads-up on tomorrow. You can access Notification Center from any screen, including the Lock screen. Just swipe down. And get up to speed.
Today view gives you a summary of what you need to know about for the day. And a peek at tomorrow.
The new All and Missed views let you see all your alerts or just those you haven’t addressed in the last 24 hours.
Let's watch Notification Center demo 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:
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:
Apple brings AirDrop to iOS 7, a new way to transfer files between iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users.
Sending a photo or a document to someone via text or email is fine. But if that someone is right next to you, a text or an email suddenly feels like too many steps. Enter AirDrop for iOS. It lets you quickly and easily share photos, videos, contacts — and anything else from any app with a Share button. Just tap Share, then select the person you want to share with. AirDrop does the rest using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. No setup required. And transfers are encrypted, so what you share is highly secure.
Here's a video showing how it works.
Apple has uploaded a new video about iPhone 5C. It is called "Designed Together". Let's watch:

iPod nano has got a 'Space Gray' color to match the latest iPhone 5s. Does this mean the company from Cupertino will no longer produce new devices in black? Who knows.
Below you may take a look at Ben Pasternak’s video showing the slightly redesigned in terms of color Apple’s player.
Here’s the description from YouTube:
Got my hands on the latest color option when purchasing a iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, iPod Touch or a iPhone 5S "Space Gray". I give you all a first look at this color on the iPod Nano.
If to speak about me, although the 'Space Gray' iPod nano looks OK, I’d rather buy a black one. And what color would you prefer?
