A new tweak has recently appeared on Cydia that lets you use your iPhone 5 or iPod touch to capture slow motion videos, even though these devices are believed to not support a slow motion mode. The tweak is called Slo-mo Mod and it is available for free on BigBoss repo.
According to the latest report from The China Post, Apple’s iPhone 6 will be equipped with an 8 megapixel camera very similar to the one used now in iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. But don’t get upset or disappointed - it will feature an intuitive image stabilization system.
Another iPhone user has been found dead these days. This time it’s a 28-year-old man from Thailand who reportedly was electrocuted by his iPhone 4S. As noted by local sources, the man was lying on the phone while charging it. And again, the charger was manufactured by an unknown third-party firm.
The company from Cupertino is launching an aggressive trade-in program in India. Sources claim that Apple executives met with retail partners in the country last week to discuss the details of the offer. In order to make the residents of India purchase iPhone 5c or iPhone 4S, Apple will be offering incredible discounts for all those who decide to change iPhone 4 in working condition for the newer device.
Apple has released iOS 7.0.4 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The update is a bug fix release with improvements. Apple notes that the update includes a fix for FaceTime calls that could fail for some users. The update is available over-the-air via the Software Update section in the iOS Settings app.
Apple has also released iOS 6.1.5 for fourth-generation iPod touch users. That iOS 6 update is designed to fix the FaceTime bug on the non-iOS 7 capable iPod touch.
iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, as predicted, attract fewer early upgraders in comparison with the last-year iPhone 5 and previous models. What that means is that people owning an iPhone 5 are unlikely to change it for 5s or 5c. And that makes sense, I guess.
According to the Localytics report, iPhone 5s currently represents nearly 4% of the global iPhone share. iPhone 5c still remains less demanded - it accounts for only about 2%. However, latest estimates show that Apple’s plastic handset is gaining popularity, especially in the U.S.A.
After announcing the new iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina display, updated MacBooks, Mac Pros and the free OS X Mavericks yesterday, Apple decided to release iOS 7.0.3 that same evening. This minor update contains numerous bug fixes, safety improvements as well as a bunch of new features aimed to make the integration between Apple’s mobile and desktop operating systems even deeper. Moreover, there’re some enhancements that deal with iPhone 5s’ Touch ID sensor.
You probably know that the new Apple’s flagship - iPhone 5s - is currently outselling its plastic counterpart - iPhone 5c. According to a poll, conducted by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) in September, the 5s has taken nearly 70% of Apple's overall smartphone sales.
