A new interesting and useful tweak has recently appeared on Cydia. This tweak is called SlideUP2Unlock and it is of those tweaks that allow you to change the way you unlock your iPhone.
The week has nearly come to an end, so I think we should take a look at the list of the most interesting posts. Let's start.
If to speak about popular articles, they deal mostly with the iPhone and the iWatch. In particular, over the past few days a couple of physical mockups have appeared on the Internet that show how Apple's next-gen handset might look like. Nearly all of the mockups are based on the leaked schematics and renderings, that is why they look a bit similar.
A new iOS 7 tweak called Appellancy has recently appeared on Cydia. It allows iPhone, iPod touch and iPad owners to unlock their devices using facial recognition. The creator of the tweak is named Elijah Frederickson.
A couple of new photos appeared on the Internet yesterday that show something very similar to the upcoming iPhone 6. The renderings look pretty much the same as all of the previous ones, however, there's one noticeable difference. The back shell of the gadget is not solid; it has some breaks for the antenna.
A new bug has been recently discovered that makes FaceTime unusable. The bug affects devices running iOS 6.
According to a new support document released by Apple, those iOS 6 users who encountered problems with FaceTime should upgrade to iOS 7.0.4 or later if their devices support such upgrade. In case you have a gadget, which doesn't support iOS 7, you need to update it to iOS 6.1.6.
Many users think of buying new modern wireless headphones to replace original old-type ones that came with a player or a smartphone. Today we will show you Hitz WP-380 headphones from Creative.
First impression always starts from the process of unpackaging the box. Hitz WP-380 looks great, at first sight one can tell that these headphones are very well made. The design is modern. These on ear type headphones have professionally-tuned 34mm neodymium drivers that must deliver excellent sound. There is also a microphone, so Hitz WP-380 can be used to make calls as well. Official web page positions Hitz WP-380 as a Lightweight On-ear Bluetooth Headset with NFC.
The box has the headset, small travel pouch, mini-USB cable for charging, standart 3.5mm audio cable and user manual.
The design is simple and modern. The quality is very good, just as you'd expect from device made by Creative. The headset sits comfortable and can be adjusted in several ways. The cups do fold, which is good. We find these headphones fairly comfortable and experienced no problems wearing them for a long time. WP-380 weights just 5.3 oz (150 g).
The microphone is hidden in the earcup, it's a little far from the mouth, it is it is hard to use the WP-380 headset in a noisy place.
It is very easy to start listen to the music: you need is to turn on WP-380 and keep holding on/off button. The light goes blinking blue, which means it is ready to connect to some gadget. On the iPhone just navigate to Settings - Bluetooth, then find and select Creative WP-380 in the list of found devices. That's it. Easy! The working distance is approximately 33 ft (10 meters), which is enough to walk around the house with no need to carry your player or smartphone with you.
WP-380 can also connect to devices with NFC technology (Near Field Communication). Unfortunately Apple smartphones do not support NFC, while Android users will be happy to try NFC.
Another interesting fact about WP-380 is Creative ShareMe and Creative Multipoint. Creative ShareMe (one source, two headsets) allows you to share your music wirelessly with your buddy or loved one using another Creative ShareMe-enabled wireless headset. Creative Multipoint (two sources, one headset) allows you to pair two separate devices to the headset at the same time. This means that you can easily switch your music source between these two Bluetooth stereo devices.
There are several buttons to control the headset. The on/off button is used to turn headset on and off, to set up BlueTooth connection, and to answer the incoming call. Using next, previous, play/pause (combined with on/off button) is is possible to control the music, stop/play, skip to the next track or play the previous one. Volume buttons are used to control the volume. Unfortunately it is not possible to use Siri voice assistant on the iPhone, there is just no button for that.
The quality of the sound is very good. This is not a surprise, since Creative uses different software and hardware trick s to improve sound playback and recording quality. Middle and high frequencies are well done, bass is good as well. The built-in speech microphone with ClearSpeech Engine actively suppresses external noises and digitally enhances speech clarity so that your conversations are loud and clear.
By the way, users of iPad tablet and iPod Touch player can use this headset to talk via Skype and similar voip apps.
The compatible list of devices is quite high. Hitz WP-380 works with Bluetooth enabled devices as well as with with every phone and player that has a standart 3.5mm jack.
Creative WP-380 charges in about an hour. Internal battery gives us approximately 12 hours of playback time.

A new iPhone concept has recently appeared on the Internet. This time it is called iPhone 6 Pro. What is interesting about this device is that it features iController - an accessory for those people who like playing games on their iPhone.
A French website Nowhereelse.fr and a well-known designer Martin Hajek have recently teamed to create a new iPhone 6 concept. The images shown below are based on the schematics, which leaked online a couple of days ago. Well, what can I say? The device looks rather attractive.
According to the latest patent filings published on Thursday by the US Patent and Trademark Office, Apple is planning to develop a new device-unlocking system. This system will allow users to unlock their iOS devices by connecting a set of illuminated dots, so that drawing a custom pattern on the screen of the device. The patent applications are entitled 'Gesture entry techniques'. There're two filings that deal with the new technology, not one, which a bit strange, I guess.
As you probably know, Apple's iTunes Radio is officially available in the USA and Australia. However, it appears that the guys from Cupertino are currently planning to launch their streaming music service in Latin America.
A photo showing something very similar to white iPhone 6 front panel appeared today on Chinese social network Weibo. The panel is only slightly larger than that of current iPhone 5s, so I can assume it is of the would-be 4.7-inch iPhone.
A developer named Ryan Petrich has recently teased a new version of Activator. It is a beta version and it can boast of some new battery percentage actions.
The new feature allows you to set the so-called triggers for certain battery level. For example, your iPhone can play a ringtone each time it reaches a certain battery level. This is very convenient, I must admit.
According to the latest rumors, the company from Cupertino is planning to change the iTunes music store dramatically. The reason for such overhaul is quite simple and obvious: the number of music downloads declines from quarter to quarter and Apple’s iTunes Radio is not as successful as it was expected to be.
A photo showing two alleged cases for iPhone 6 has recently leaked online. One case is designed for a 4.7-inch handset and the other one for 5.5-5.7-inch iPhone. While it is still unknown whether the photo is legitimate or not, it is still better than nothing.
Apple's next-gen iPhone is expected to feature a larger display and a much thinner body. So far, there has been no official confirmation of this rumor, however, a new photo of the iPhone 6 case first published by Nowhereelse.fr proves that Apple is indeed working on a much thinner smartphone.
