It’s the year 2014 and most of us in the world has some type of smartphone. For the ones who don’t have one, what do you think about the phones that are out now? Would you choose the iPhone or some other phone now that there are all kinds of different devices out with similar features?

Apple’s New iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s

Would You Choose The iPhone 5s or the iPhone 5c?

Apple is finally releasing their new iPhone 5c and 5s, but what makes these two phones better than the ones out there and what is the difference between the two? In this article you are about to get all of your questions answered.

The iPhone 5s is a newly technologically built phone made from Apple. They’ve throw some new things like the “Touch ID” which allows you to scan your finger on the home button and it unlocks your phone/makes you do your purchases that way. It also has a built in A7 chip with a 64-bit desktop-class architecture which allows a better performance making it 2x faster than the older phones. The camera has even improved with some new things. Larger pixels and a larger aperture (2.2) along with giving your shots the effect of burst mode, and recording HD videos along with slow motion effects.

Both of them have iOS7 which is a better multitasking program with other things like Air Drop and Control Center. It makes the phone look like it’s something different than any other Apple device made. The 5c has a lot of the same things as the 5s, but it mainly has to do with the color options. If you like design and color then the 5c is best for you. If you like better programing and graphics, the 5s is the one to choose.

These phones are coming out on September 20th at 8AM in your local Apple Store. Or you can go ahead and pre-order your phone now. Got any questions? Comment below the article!

How To Get Into A Locked iPhone Without Passcode

I found a video that shows this neat little trick. It actually allows you to get into the phone without needing the passcode. This works for iOS 6.1 but it didn’t show about any other previous iOS programs. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, then don’t do it. It’s nice to know how it works though.

First you want to slide to unlock and hit the “emergency” button. Once you’re there, you want to hold down the power button like you’re actually going to turn it off, but clicking the “cancel” button instead. The top area (where your time, service bars, and power bar shows) should be blue (instead of black). After that, you want to type 911 but then quickly cancel it so it didn’t go through and actually call anyone. Turn the screen off (by pressing the power button once) and then slide to unlock.

The next step is to hold the power button for three seconds and as soon as you’re on the third second, you want to hit the “emergency” button (while holding the power button still). This unlocks the phone without any passcode and you can view anything through the phone, but you HAVE TO HOLD DOWN ON THE POWER BUTTON THE ENTIRE TIME. If you don’t, it will shut off again and you’ll be back from where you started. Here’s the video if you want to watch it:

What’s New In The iOS 6.1 Update

The New Player Display Looks A Lot Better

A new update has arrived for our Apple devices! The first thing I thought was, what does this update even do? It didn’t seem any different than the last update, but I actually noticed some interesting things they added. They aren’t major or anything, but nice little display features or finishing touches they have given to us.

Reporting problems is now easier because they have it as a huge button (like if you go to the Google Maps icon you’ll see). This makes things so much easier to report your issues. Another thing is the music player display for the front of the screen when it’s on lock mode. If you double click it to show the pausing feature, it shows it differently with a volume change. Of course there are also bug fixes and stuff like that, but those two were the two features that were noticed.

Tips On Choosing The Perfect iPhone Developer

Let Your App Deal With The Best...

The Apple Market is just filled with fascinating devices that give us the entertainment/tools we desire. Most of this is from the applications that we buy from the App Store. Some of us may be interested in getting an application developed, but just don’t know how and what to expect when it comes to developing it. Development takes about 6 months (usually) and you would want that wait to be worth it. Here are some tips on how to choose the best app developer just for you.

Before you start looking for a developer, you need to know why you are developing the app, who your audience will be, and if it is the best on your reach to your target market. A suggestion would be to think about what your app will NOT be about. To have a successful app is to take 5% of what may be possible for a desktop experience and then putting it into a very easy to deal with app. Three things you should consider to your app developer is to ask: what is the key benefit that the user will get from the app, what other apps are competitive and will make mine the best out of them all, and what will the app do for your business. This can help with making your app the very best.

When developing the application, put what you want and what others would enjoy. Go ahead and ask the developer “how do we do this?” or “Is it possible on the iPhone?” Questions like these will be good to see if the developer can solve complex issues or think of greater things. Make sure you know what the app will do, how it’s going to function, if you want updates, how much you want to charge for the app, and the budget/price you are willing to pay for the app. Having a decent developer creating your app can be pretty expensive (like up to $10k-100k). You may be able to make some type of deal, but it’s pretty expensive stuff.

To find your developer, you can go ahead and search on Google. If you have a small project, you can go ahead and search Craigslist (they are perfect). There are other sites like Cocoa Heads and Freelancer. Once you’ve found a developer, LOOK AT EXAMPLES THAT THEY’VE DONE! This will show you what kind of quality and effort they put into their work. Go for an experienced developer because having someone brand new doing the job can become a very regretful decision (takes longer, costs your time, etc.). You also need to communicate with your developer easily. If they aren’t willing to communicate you, then find someone else.

Stick to deadlines. This will help your development go along smoothly (and not take longer to make). There’s usually detailed discussion (talking about existing requirements), initial implementation (deadline for initial version of app), final implementation (releasing the app), and support (developer should provide 3-8 weeks support once app is launched). DO NOT RUSH ANYTHING during when trying to make an app. Rushing can make you forget things or mess things up. Just make a timeline to organize things and not rush anything.

Home Share Not Working With Apple Mobile Devices

Along With Music, This Also Works For Your Movies Too.

Last night I got some new music and haven’t put it on my iPod Touch yet. I decided that since it’s all on my computer, why not just home share it? So I gave it a try and when I went to my music library (and tapped the “more” button), I noticed that the “share” option was nowhere to be found. I did some research and it seemed like all kinds of people with an updated iOS 6 are having this problem, but that isn’t the source to the problem.

I called up Apple Tech Support and they told me all of the basic things on getting home sharing to work. Like make sure you are connected to the same wireless internet that your computer is on (this also includes iPhone and iPad being connected to the Wi-Fi). Or to make sure that home sharing is actually turned on. They also told me to check (in my settings under the music section) if the home sharing account was logged in correctly and it was. Because I had all of this done and still nothing, they told me to log out and log back in. Still nothing, so they told me that I had to go ahead and uninstall my iTunes software completely.

If this didn’t work, I’d have to call back, but apparently it did. In order to uninstall everything, you need to follow the directions here. You HAVE to FOLLOW EACH STEP exactly as it is told, or else it won’t work. The only problem I had with this was that it wouldn’t get rid of my “Apple” folder. If you can’t get rid of it using Windows, then you’d have to boot you’re computer in safe mode and use the DOS command prompt. Keep following the instructions after that and then install iTunes again. Uninstalling iTunes won’t lose any of your music or anything in your iTunes library. It’s all good and that was how I was able to get my home sharing to work.

If home sharing still doesn’t work, then you are going to need to unplug your router and wait at least for ten seconds. Plug it back in and make sure that all devices are connected to the internet. Still have a problem? Turn the Apple devices on, wait for ten seconds, and turn them back on. This should do the trick.
