There is less that one day only, exactly tomorrow, the iPhone 5S goes on sale. Are you one from these crazy people who would desire to be first in that line to buy the new models of iPhone? No wonder! Because it seems that Apple opted to launch the cheaper iPhone, Apple’s colorful new handset slots below the iPhone 5s flagship and ships with iOS 7.
On Wednesday, shortly after iOS 7 became available to the public, Apple followed up with a commercial focusing on 5c’s software. The ad is titled “Designed Together” and its purpose is to show a seamless connection between the iPhone 5c and the colorful new operating system.
The iPhone 5c is slightly thicker, taller and wider than the iPhone 5 and 5s, measuring in at 124.4 x 59.2 x 8.97mm (4.9 x 2.33 x 0.35 inches),and it’s weighs is 112g, or 3.95 ounces. the iPhone 5c is all glass with an improved 1.2MP front-facing camera, earpiece, sensors screen and Retina display – 4-inch, 1,136 x 640-pixel (326-ppi) IPS panel that’s used on the iPhone 5 and 5s.
It has usual dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and aGPS / GLONASS radios, the iPhone 5c handles a whopping 13 LTE bands. In fact, the 5c and 5s are the first handsets we’ve ever used that support all four major US carriers out of the box. In total, there are four SKUs: A1532 for the US (AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon), A1456 for the US (Sprint) and Japan, A1457 for Europe and A1530 for Asia / Australia. Both US versions support quad-band CDMA / EVDO and penta-band (850 / 900 / 1700 [AWS] / 1900 / 2100) UMTS / HSPA+ / DC-HSPA (42 Mbps). All models also include a quad-band GSM / EDGE radio. Our device (A1456) is unlocked — it came with a Verizon SIM, but also worked fine on AT&T’s network.
As you probably know Apple Inc. is going to make a releas of a new iPhone next month. Reportedly that new device will include such feather as Biometric data. It is a fingerprint reader.
“Apple is giving a strong indication that market leaders see biometrics as part of their roadmap,” said Thomas Marschall, chief executive officer of Precise Biometrics AB (PREC), a maker of authentication equipment such as fingerprint sensors in Lund, Sweden. “All competitors are looking for alternatives to match Apple — it’s the kickoff of a rally in the industry.”
“We used to make ID cards and passports,” said Morpho’s founder, Bernard Didier. “Today we’re asking: Why not use your ID for transport, Social Security or even payments?”
“Electronic passports are only the tip of the iceberg,” said Olivier Piou, CEO of Gemalto. “Any chip in an ID card comes loaded with secure software containing some credentials and some empty spots. We can fill those later with all sorts of new applications.”
“The use of biometrics in consumer electronics isn’t new,” said Johan Carlstroem, CEO of Fingerprint Cards in Gothenburg, Sweden. But if “Apple gets its fingerprint solution to work seamlessly and delivers a great user experience, it will mean a paradigm shift and a milestone for biometrics.”
Do you have any special thoughts about?
Reportedly that Apple probably conspired with major publishers to gain up the price of e-books in a scheme costing consumers “hundreds of millions of dollars,” a U.S. government lawyer said on Monday.
If Apple is found liable, it could still face damages in a separate trial by 33 state attorneys general, who would seek civil penalties on behalf of consumers.
Orin Snyder, an attorney for Apple, described the case as “bizarre.” Apple acted in its own business interests in negotiating deals with publishers in the run up to the debut of its iPad in January 2010, he said.
Today nobody would argue with the statement that smartphone has become our primary device for practically any information we need in our day by day activities, whether it’s communication, job, study, entertainment, travel, health, shopping, monetary transactions and so on. It is no longer just a portable computer in your pocket but something like an extension of your brain. There are so many people who can’t live even a day without hearing or seeing news about Apple or its related products.
The world is moving so fast these days that I’m sure the time when we no longer have fat wallets, coins and cash is nearby. Virtual credit cards is the reality we live in. Almost today having iPhone, Android or any other new smartphone or tablet you can use them as a credit card for paying your needs. For instance such magic application as Taxi Magic can help you to find electronically the nearest cub station, book the taxi, track its arrival, and pay with your credit card, all with the free Taxi Magic application.

It’s happend! Timothy D. Cook, Apple’s CEO, who took over from Steve Jobs, presented to the public new smartphone iPhone 5, iPod touch and iPod nano. The presentation had been held in San Francisco yesterday. It’s not too much comments yet but the firsts of them are:
It’s the thinnest, lightest, fastest and most powerful phone that Apple Inc. has ever made.
“IPhone 5 is the best phone we’ve ever made,” Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president for worldwide marketing, said as he introduced the device during a splashy invitation-only event in San Francisco. The event starred Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook and the Foo Fighters, who performed several of their hits.
Making a thinner, lighter iPhone meant even the display had to be thinner. Apple engineers accomplished that by creating the first Retina display with integrated touch technology. Which means instead of a separate layer of touch electrodes between display pixels, the pixels do double duty — acting as touch-sensing electrodes while displaying the image at the same time. With one less layer between you and what you see on iPhone 5, you experience more clarity than ever before. All on a display that’s 30 percent thinner than before.
Good news! Apple sent invites to an event, which will held on September 12 in San Francisco. CNET News reports. It is expected that the event will be dedicated to a new version of the smartphone iPhone.
Traditionally Apple does not open details of the upcoming presentation, but the invitation contains slogan “It’s almost here” that sounds encouragingly in the light of universal expectation of the next version of its iconic smartphone that will be called the iPhone 5 (the previous two models came out at numbers 4 and 4S).
According to rumors, the new iPhone will get a “stretched” and a slightly larger screen, a faster processor, a smaller dock connector and possibly NFC technology that would make it easier for shoppers to make payments through their phones.
So, be ready for iPhone 5!
Previous smartphone, iPhone 4S, was presented Oct. 4, 2011.
There are apps I prefer and here is some of them I love to use:
1.Today Todo Pro is very nice designed app, that helps on the way of showing today’s to-do’s, a night sky showing yesterday’s and a purple-ish eclipse showing tomorrow’s. It makes it really easy to organize your tasks, edit them, and tick them off as they are completed. Color schemes are really nice, the artwork is fantastic, and for three bucks… not too bad.
Download: iTunes Store
2.Todo is app that offers Push notifications, and the way you are able to move tasks around, reschedule and overall navigate through the app is super simple.
