Although the Internet is ablaze over rumors of a cheaper iPhone, it seems like the device itself has originated from a game of telephone; it is still a bewildering process trying to piece together whether it will actually surface or not. Nonetheless, if it does indeed come into fruition, then it would more than likely borrow from the current iPhone 5, the designed-on-a-stricter-budget iPod touch, and journey back to take design cues from the classic plastic iPhone 3G. From this conglomeration of released designs and rumors comes a very realistic gallery of images depicting what a next-generation, yet cheaper iPhone could look like.
Even though iPad mini may come in a smaller package, it still packs a lot of screen real estate into its form factor with its 7.9" display compared to iPad's 9.7". In fact, the display-to-size ratio is significantly better on iPad mini. For the trade-off in dimensions, iPad mini provides a superior screen real estate that will not feel all that cramped for regular iPad users. Exactly how much of the display does iPad mini, with its absolutely immense reduction in size and weight, pack compared to iPad? Read on for the specifics.
This should come as no surprise that those that have carefully peered through the fifth-generation iPod touch's specification sheet, although it still does decidedly come as an over-the-shoulder shock and a reminder of just how different Apple's iOS devices are for buyers that are looking for a full iPhone 5 replacement. Benchmarks for the newest iPod touch reveal just how much it contrasts with the iPhone 5, retaining a spot as its cheaper alternative.
This actually does come as a surprise since iPhone 5 was largely reported, even by Apple, to have the same 8-megapixel camera on its rear as the 4S sports. There were some improvements noted, like a dynamic f-stop feature for better low-light performance and a sapphire lens cover added for increased durability, but that was where Apple's improvement list ended. Test results are in, and they are quite impressive for the one area of iPhone 5 that was not boasted about to be a major change.
Though it's only been out for a few days, Evi has already risen to the top of the App Store charts but for some reason only has one and a half stars. Puzzling for an application that promises to function in ways that somewhat resemble Apple's creation currently in beta called Siri. Today we're going to take the two technologies through a variety of tests to see which is faster, more reliable, has a better interface and which of the two is ultimately the friendliest!
Have you ever had to lament the shattering of your iOS device’s glass? Well, it seems that Apple is well aware of the extent of people that have accidentally dropped their device and picked it up only to find the glass shattered. Continuing to try to fix one of their
It seems that AT&T has strived to have the fastest data rates since the iPhone became available on their network. Ever since AT&T’s EDGE data rates were tested to be a few times faster than the competition in 2007, it appears they have kept up the trend of having the
Proving once again that sometimes what seems like the most complicated way of doing something can be the simplest and most effective, a few brilliant engineers with Perceptive Development have successfully connected an infrared keyboard with an iPhone without jailbreaking the device! Most impressively of all, they did it for less than $20 using the headphone port. (Videos after the break.)
On August 14th, Wired.com asked iPhone 3G users around the world to test their network speed at their location and submit it so they could document network speeds around the world? Well, since then they've gathered information contributed by over 2,600 participants around the world, and they just finished compiling their findings.
Apple's iPhone 3G ads tout the new iPhone 3G as being fast, but just how fast is it? The ads make it seem a little utopian, showing it loading webpages almost instantaneously. However, while almost everyone agrees 3G is an improvement, it's not nearly that fast in real life. Secondly, speeds differ for everyone. So, the only real way to find out how fast the iPhone 3G is is to ask people who use it in your area, and that's exactly what Wired is doing.
