iPhone 4s - The deadly weapon byApple Inc

Apple Inc. introduced the concept of iPhones in the year and from then iPhone has become one of the most liked product in the world of cell phones. Thousands of its consumers line up in a queue in order to be the first one to get the iPhone which has the features of Wi-Fi system along with a sharp and clear display, similar to that of a computer, on a quite innovative touch screen technology. The launching of iPhones in the market created a fresh stream of rush to introduce a phone which resembles the features of iPhones.

Why iPhone 4S?

Furthermore, the launching of Apple iPhone 4s in the month of October this year has also significantly changed the market of iPhone. The first week after the launch of iPhone 4s, Apple declared that the sales have been recorded at a quantity of more than four million units of the smartphone.

However, the sales of Android phones may be twice the quantity of Apple’s smartphones and the major reason why more people opt for the Android of Google over the iOS of Apple is the price factor of the phone. Although, this competition started from the year 2010, when both the companies were operating on equal scales and was a reflection as to how did the Android phones coped over with the iOS of Apple Inc.

Talking in terms of business profits, the iPhone 4s still holds the number one position and have made a very huge influence on the mobile app makers and those innovations which the rivals have tended to copy these days.

The features of iPhone 4s is accompanied with a virtual assistant which is named as Siri and has the functionality of recognizing voice commands by its user. This voice command ability is used to schedule appointments, conduct search process on the Internet and dictates text messages.

The outside overview of the iPhone 4s is quite resemble to its predecessor, the iPhone 4, but, the functionality is quite differentiating as it is manufactured with better technical elements which is also inclusive of a new and improved camera. The most powerful chip of all iPhones, the A5 is also been made part of the iPhone 4s which is the similar micro processor used in the place of brains inside an iPad.

The paths of networks on which the iPhone 4s can operate easily are the CDMA and GSM. Since, these technologies are spread worldwide; these iPhones can be used all over the world.  As regards to the price of the smartphone, a model having a storage capacity of 16 gigabyte is tagged to be $199 and the price increases along with the increase in the storage capacity of the iPhone 4s. the model is said to have many more features with the supporting technology to be of the latest quality.

Where to get iPhone 4S?

The new smartphone iPhone 4s is made available on the Verizon, AT&T and the Sprint network rather than the wireless carrier network on which its predecessor used to operate.

Steve Jobs, In Memory of Apple Founder

Salute to the icon of Apple - Mr Steve Jobs

 

Steve Jobs, the pioneer of the company Apple, passed away in his sleep at an early age of 56. Suffering from a very atypical and fatal form of pancreatic cancer, the man lived a man of utter success and unparalleled achievements in the history of the world of technology.

With his assets amounting to somewhere around US$9 billion at the time when he owned the position of CEO of Apple, the idea of the possessor of so much wealth never affected the man of his character. The company itself made it to around US$400 billion dollars plus it was also included in the list of the Forbes. To call him victorious would be an insult for his life’s mission was something beyond comprehensible to a common man. Belonging to a very humble background he started out selling empty soda bottles to earn a living and some place to reside. His life speaks all about struggle and sheer hard work by first making a breakthrough in Macintosh followed by the ‘i’ series of product that come one after the other on annual basis in the form of ipod, iPad, iPhones and which are by themselves a perfect example of having the entire world in your hands.

As a person he was of very subtle nature. Since money never stray him from his path he can be called as a true gentleman with the sole mission of making technology available to everyone. Though being a founder of Apple, he did perceive it as his ultimate milestone and diverted to other avenues as well such as Pixar, where he bought some stakes. The man having a magic touch turned everything from ordinary to extraordinary.

The great man that he was, it’s no surprise that his death has saddened the whole world. He is not only identified as a creative producer but also an effective speaker who seemed to relate to everyone hence his loss seems very personal to many out there. Having an innovation aura to his personality, his mannerisms depicted a very distinct demeanor of that of a revolution, someone who made his own path to life defying the traditional ways. He developed a following for not just Apple but also for Pixar, assuring that his name surpassed his life.

From a speaker’s perspective he was once again a gem. At the launching of his new products, he never made it the customary way of presenting through power point depictions but made about with pictorials and images that one sees in curtain-opening ceremonies which are all about surprises and joy.

On an aggregate, Steve Jobs was a man who started from zero and went step by step through the ordeal of building a living and reached the height of not just creativity but emerging out as an exemplary figure for what it takes to hard work and lifelong acknowledgement. The mastermind behind Microsoft, Bill Gates, who also worked alongside Steve Jobs in his endeavors puts it very rightfully that Steve Jobs, has showed us all a pathway so let’s now move ahead and follow it.


Steve Jobs was an iconoclast who changed nearly everything of whether it is to watch movies, listen to music or any other aspect of our life and is the maker of the groundbreaking technology of iPads and iPhones. This passionate and brilliant minded person passed away at the age of 56.

The Apple Company has praised the countless services and all those inventions and innovations which have enriched the lives of Apple product users. As per the statement of Apple “the world is better beyond measure because of Steve Jobs.”

The co-founder of Apple and the most recent chairman has been suffering from several health problems after 7 years of a surgery of pancreatic cancer in the year 2004. Because of this reason, Jobs announced a medical leave from the post of CEO of Apple Inc in late August that year. He returned into the business after one and a half year and this time as the chairman of the company.

The debut of Mac operating units in 1984 made a blast in the market and gave an impression that Apple was a tough competitor in the industry of computers. In the year 1986, Steve Jobs went for a Lucasfilm graphic division which was used to produce Toy Story in 1995 and would ultimately set a high bar for the computer graphics oriented films.  Jobs made a fortune from the Pixar technology and later on sold it to Disney in the year 2006.

The setting of the company on the path of consumer electronics is also wholly and solely the credit of Steve Jobs by inventing products such as iPads, iPhones, iTunes and iPods. Jobs also created an environment of secrecy within the company and had turned out to be an extraordinary demanding leader

The launching of Apple II in the year 1977, the industry of personal computers changed completely. Legitimate recordings of digital music were eventually bought into the mainstream through iPods and iTunes early in the year 2000 leading to a changed face of cell phones soon after the introduction of iPhones in 2007. The role of Jobs has been praised in the handling and developing of all the three issues.

Another spectacular invention by Steve Jobs was the iPad in 2010, which was a touch-screen tablet operating unit which amazed the consumers as well as the competitors. This became the capstone of his career as a technologist as the inventing of a conceptual hybrid touch screen iPod with a computer system in it under the form of a 10 inch smartphone device was something no one can deny.

Jobs was deeply involved in making Apple products elegant in their designs but, talking for himself, he was never seen wearing anything rather than black turtleneck shirt and blue jeans in public. He was a master from his mind and an artist from the heart. Apple had seen great achievement with Steve Jobs which will never be forgotten. Even the bitter rival, Bill Gates, praised the work of the artist and holds memories which are longer then the road.

Steve Jobs has left behind a widow, two sisters, four children and 49,000 employees of Apple Inc. to mourn on his sad demise.

iPhone 7 – Speculated Futuristic Phone by Apple


The iPhone 7 As It Is Speculated

After the sad demise of Apple’s pioneer, Steve Jobs, a lot of users are curious to the point of apprehension about the future of the company and its upcoming products. Hence, its only logical that at this point people have become all the more curious and expected about the iPhone 7, though iPhone 6 is not out yet where as iPhone 5 is soon to hit the market.

Apple, on the other hand has not raised the curtain on its iPhone 7 hence there is no news about it whatsoever. However, there are a few rumours around the world, especially on the internet where stress has been laid on being realistic rather than delving in unrealistic hopes to the point of fantasies. Apple’s products are all about creativity to the very core; hence it is hard to predict what the future curtails for this new product in terms of features and technology. One thing that is of fact here is that it will be better and more user-friendly than the preceding ones.

The new iPhone 7 will surely be all about a thousand more and innovative applications since the producers are really on the drive to devise more user friendly applications that will have an edge over its counterparts. Where expectations are of more advancement in terms of its technology, the gadget will be all the more on the comfort side. Signals receiving, video and imaging quality with Facetime is hoped to be less of a problem than in the preceding ones.

iPhone 7 will definitely be much more enhanced than iPhone 4. About iPhone 4, rumours are such that users are a bit disappointed in terms of its poor quality of screen; hence this is one area where Apple will surely work on for it’s sure to affect its buying power. The 2MP upfront camera of 1080 Pixel is what expected from iPhone 7, to say the very least.  In addition to this the storage capacity will be at most of 200 GB which is definitely far more than the preceding iPhones. But, it should not be a surprise when one day Apple announces that it has devised an iPhone that has infinite storage strength in it.

To sustain the aforementioned storage capacity and all the additional features, a much efficient processor will be the need of the hour. It could be a Duel Core A6 or may be something more progressive than this one which could simply be a chip of 1GHz.

Now the question when is it hitting the market?  The fact that the iPhone 5 is next in queue and iPhone 6 will be up next one should not expect it to come out before 2013. The year 2012 is for iPhone 6 for sure. Pertaining to Apple’s tradition that one new iphone will be out each year somewhere between August and October of 2013 will be for iPhone 7.

With regards to the price rating it is too premature to shoot any guesses in there. But having known apple for not going overboard in prices and that too on short notices, the global recession and cut throat market set by the competitors will keep Apple within safe margins, hopefully.

In terms of progression and concept, the iPhones of Apple are termed as the best and the most successful of all.  The four iPhones that have been launched so far can be termed as an all time hit, however, every new release in the industry beats the price as well as the specifications of the previous one.  This can be supported by the argument that although, only three more generations of the iPhones have been introduced, but, the features and specifications provided in these smartphones are beyond limits. Just think that when these versions are so advanced, what will be in the package of iPhone 7. As per the launching of the latest model, it can be said that first the iPhone 5 is expected o get released in few days after which the number progression will continue and the time for the launching of iPhone 6 will take place and will ultimately pave way for the iPhone 7 to hit the local as well as the international market. Although, it cannot be said exactly what will be the features and the physical dimensions of this smartphone will be, but keeping in mind the progression of the earlier versions of the iPhones, some good and extraordinary features can be expected from the blasting package.

What should be included in iPhone 7?

Looking at the trend of iPhones, the processor, storage capacity as well as the RAM, all has been increasing in its performance since the introduction of the first ever iPhone to the 3rd generation after which the company came out with a new technology of the processor, the A4 chip which gave a boost to the performance level of iPhone 4. From this, it can be speculated that the iPhone 7 will have a more powerful processing ability as well as an excellent internal memory capacity.

The launching of the iPhone 7 is expected to place in the year 2013 which is a long time until which the injection of hundreds of gigabytes as the ranging capacity can be truly expected. The technology involved in making that much storage capacity has been reached to its final stage and only the making of the technology perfect phase and cutting down the cost of production is left to be done which is expected to finish by the end of the next year. By this action, the price of iPhone 7 will deviate much from other iPhones which also a formidable weapon of Apple in the iPhon industry. The only factors estimated to affect its price is the value of currency and the state of the economy at the time of its release.

According to some rumors, the iPhone 7 will have a Duo Core A6 processor having a speed of 1 GHz, an internal storage capacity of at most 200 GB, a screen having a size of 4” along with loads and loads of in-built applications.

Praying for iPhone 7!

Moreover, the iPhone 7 will be free from hardware buttons technology and will enter into the phase of touch screen in its entirety. These and various other features of the upcoming model of iPhone make it the ultimate choice for future phones.

iPhone 6 – An Anticipated Review


iPhone 6 - One of the most anticipated gadget in the near future!

Many sources have anticipated that the iPhone 6 will hit the market by July 2013. Although, the Apple company has not yet arranged any event in order to announce the releasing of iPhone 6 in the international market or what features are inclusive in the latest model of this smartphone, but, this is not the first time when Apple has maintained such silence, it has now become a tradition of the company.

These days the company Apple is all about going green and environmental friendly with its latest products. Another in the league of its eco-friendly product is the much anticipated iPhone 6 which will follow iPhone 5’s release most probably by Christmas of 2012. The upgraded and new features are not only going to benefit the users but also the environment as a whole.

The touch screen of iPhone 6 is predicted to be composed of graphene which is quite lightweight meaning the users should not expect any placement of metals in this new gadget. Being an atomically dense material, Apple decided it was now time to move away from indium tin oxide which made the base. The light weight will be aided by an astonishingly thin look something that was not so prominent in the preceding iPhones. The simple analogy of touch and play plus the utilities of drawing and sketching can be handled with utmost precision and accuracy.

Apple has planned to introduce the ORB that is the Organic Radical Battery which is Japan’s creation. Hence, it’s now the time to say good bye to the traditional Lithium-ion battery and switch to ORB which does not fear of any toxic or harmful battery composition. The fact that these batteries are environment friendly to the very core plus the recharging time is amazingly and unbelievably just of about half a minute makes iPhone 5 smarter than its predecessors. More promising is the high energy capacity all thanks to ORB which is proving to be one efficient option. Hence, Apple has now overcome this void of small battery life making a new name to its product globally and adding to the lure of iPhone 6.

Now adding to the icing on the cake are the plastic cases that will be replacing the polycarbonate. Therefore, it’s time to welcome the upcoming material that has been newly crafted as isoplast which is of bio-degradable nature. The idea was just not to work on the prolonged life of the casing of Apple’s products but also to enhance its bearing ability and withstanding capacity if it falls and bumps somewhere. Apple also knows the more it will go for slimmer and lighter products the better would be the competition against Droid.

The time of iPhone 6 launching is a matter of a great debate. Since, as per the history the time of release of Apple’s product usually lies in mid summers that is somewhere near July (with the exception of the recent release in the middle of the year), the actual prediction will only be carried after the release of iPhone 5. As a matter of fact, if one examines the gap period between each of Apple’s release of production it amounts to around a period of twelve months. Therefore, if Apple plans to follow the same regimen there is no reason why one should expect it before 2012, to say the very least.

But of course we are not keeping in consideration the delays in production plus the expected release of iPhone 5s hence; anything can happen in between to delay it further.

What is included in iPhone 6?

Information regarding the iPhone 6 that is obtained from apple might not be much but a source which confirms the news is that the Toshiba company is constructing a factory in which it has been expected to produce the LCD panels that are to be used in the manufacturing of the iPhone 6. Through this, it has been confirmed that the iPhone 6 will be having solar panels in the battery aspect.

Another rumor about the iPhone 6 is that it will eventually phase out from the era or buttons. The way of doing this is to provide an on screen button which is based on virtual technology. In addition, the security area is expected to be more advanced by the introduction of either face or thumb recognition. Since, there is a probability of the first ever introduction of 4G carrier in the industry of smartphones, then the requirement of increasing Wi-Fi functionality in the phone is also very essential. Through this the internet connectivity will be enhanced and will make it adaptable for many actions that are performed with a PC.

Moreover, the new iPhone 6 will be equipped with Pico projector. It is another form of video which has the ability to project to a reasonable distance. Another possibility about the phone is that it will be an LTE powered handset. This is estimated by the specifications of the manufacturers about the iPhone 6. The main focus on its production is that it should look different from all the other smartphones available in the market and at the same time be environment friendly as well. It is also expected that Apple has not planned to be left behind in the concept of going green which is the reason why most of the parts of the smartphone would be green both in the designing and functionality of it.

It has been known to all that Apple is being working in agreement with the AT&T to make them their official careers. This could be the reason why iPhone 6 has iOS running operating systems that are powered by AT&T which is estimated to have 4 x versions.  The product is superior from others by the fact that it cannot be downgraded to the previous versions of the iOS operating systems.

Design of iPhone 6

The outer body of the iPhone 6 would be made of aluminum shell which turns out to be a good exit from the gorilla grass which was previously being used by previous versions of iPhones. Furthermore, the antenna problem is also expected to be resolved because of the possibility of built-in powered antenna for the purpose of enhancing the service reception. Apple has a tradition of not disappointing its customers and it is speculated that the tradition will continue.
