For the month of June, Apple is giving a small boost to its trade-in price values for the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and iPhone 5S, according to Apple Store sources. Using the Reuse and Recycle program, a customer can bring in an older iPhone model and receive gift card credit toward the purchase of a newer iPhone. Likely in order to spur some new iPhone sales this month, Apple is offering the following improvements to its trade-in pricing:

The iPhone images above are all featured on the store page for the new Lightning Dock that Apple released earlier today, but only three of them depict real iPhone models.

The iPhone 6 Plus, 6, and 5s all look correct, but if you look closely, you’ll notice that the pink iPhone 5s somehow ended up with a Touch ID button. While there have been rumors of a 4-inch iPhone 6C variant, there’s a pretty good chance that this isn’t an early look at that.

Instead, it’s probably just a case of someone forgetting to toggle a layer in Photoshop before exporting the image. In all likelihood it will disappear and be replaced with a corrected image in the near future.

Update: Somebody at Apple cracked open Photoshop and fixed the home button. The revised image is below.

The newly launched iphone 6 has been a long awaited and one of the most desired phones of the year. The new iPhone 6 is turning up as a device to get in love with. When it comes to a new launch, Apple has again surprised people with goose bumps and successfully turned the tables. The new iPhone 6 is the topic where mesmerizing experience starts from the very first look to all the way to its performance. iPhone 6 has become the most searched gadget on Google 2014. It won’t be wrong to say that people went insane for owning the iPhone 6. The waiting in long queues in front of the stores after months of pre-ordering, is justified by the arrival of whole new experience. The iPhone 5 and 5s users are wondering the worth to upgrade to the new iPhone 6. When it comes to new features integration, Apple shows up very well with a pretty impressive work on the long enough list.

 FEATURE REVIEW: –

 Display –The first look of the iPhone 6 says all about “The Change”. Apple has now finally movedfrom its small screen customs to bigger screen phones. The screen size of iPhone 6 is stretched from 4 inch to 4.7 inch. Now the resolution of iPhone is 1334*760 pxwith 326 PPI density. Where as the iPhone 5s has resolution of 1136*640 px with a much small screen of 4inch.

iPhone 5s is slim with 7.6mm but the Apple has pretty well managed to make the new iPhone 6 much slimmer to 6.9mm. The placement of physical buttons are also re-positioned (lock button) from top to right side; and the edges are also curved.

Reachability – iPhone 5s hasaddicted userswith the comfortably operable iPhone 5s average sized screenbut a thing to be thought will be for accomplishing the same comfort after migrating the user to the BIG screen phone.With increasing the screen size, Apple has made a remarkable move with integrating a new feature for single-handed use. Reachability is a new astonishing aspect to empower the users of the iPhone 6. Users just need to double tap on home button, and with a blink of an eye the whole screen is shifted downwards for easy access to the options that were showing at the top of the screen. Despite of the 4.7-inch screen of iPhone 6, the glamorous feature has made the access and use very smooth and reachable. That is one wonderful thing to be thought of and Apple has done justice with it.

NFC –Apple pay is here. Although previous versions including iPhone 5s did not had any NFC (Near Field Communication) but it was always on the radar of Apple. Apple has now embedded the NFC chip iniPhone 6 for the users to pay without taking out their wallet and getting the card swiped. The whole process can now be done by just putting the phone in front of the device and then pay by touch ID only. Users have to just enter the credentials of the card and complete the process of using the phone to pay only once. The details of the credit card and credentials are not anywhere saved on the database of Apple, which is a fabulous thing. The security has been the one of the major concerns these days which is made sure to be taken care of in iPhone 6. But the chip is closed for the third party developers since now. According to the resources, Apple is looking forward to expand the use of NFC for public transit tickets, building security and on some other different commercial levels.

Camera – Not a big change has been noticed in the front side and the rare side camera as iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 both have 8 mega-pixels. Apple has though made some changes and tweaks in iPhone 6. Now the iPhone 5s users can enjoy a lot more features by upgrading to iPhone 6 integrated inside the camera of iPhone 6.

Autofocus of the phone is re-touched with the new “Focus Pixels”.  Autofocus of iPhone 5s was great but now it is twice as fast as the previous one. One can easily autofocus and that too very quickly. The rear camera is one that does “Digital Image stabilization”, which means that the photos will be much clear and crispier. One of the really awesome things about the rear camera is the slow motion video capturing at 240 FPS that is a fantastically sharp experience. The front camera is also of the aperture f/2.2 as of the rear camera. Now the front camera can capture much better photos in low light as well as offers a burst mode too.

Processor and Wi-Fi – Peeking inside, iPhone 5s posses the A7 processor where as in iPhone 6Apple has introduced the new A8 processor which 13% small in size than the previous processor A7. And additionally is designed to be 50 percent more efficient. The new processor is tremendously fast.

The A8 processor is accompanied by M8 co-processor, which tracks the user’s activity such as walking, cycling, running for the records and use of health kit.

Speed is not only limited to the processor as the WIFI 802.11 ac is 3 times faster. 4G LTE is supported by both iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 but the iPhone 6 has now an extra support on 20 LTE, which makes iPhone 6 a better option in performance terms as well.

Battery – Apple has broken the myth of more battery consumption by a big screen phone that drains by lunchtime and prompts to charge. Talk time of iPhone 5s is 10 hours and Internet surfing is 8 hours. Although iPhone 6 is a BIG screen phone but the battery life as claimed by Apple for iPhone 6 for talk time has improved from 10 hours to 14 hours. Adding on, Internet use has increased10 hours from 8 hours.

Apple has now moved to the large screen segment and justified the new look as being elegant that makes it standout. Not just the looks, but also its inside is built strong and proficient for the flawless performance. Apple iPhone 6 is a good option for those who want a bigger and better iPhone in terms of performance, looks, and some big and small tweaks.

SwitchBoard is a Apple Software Utility that is used in Apple’s factory and in their Headquarters to test and to make sure that things on the device work correctly like with hardware and software. 

SwitchBoard is an alternative to iOS and isn’t seen to often and is very rare to find. This is the first or one of the first iPhone 5 SwitchBoard Prototypes seen. 

This unit is a Prototype because it has the Factory testing SwitchBoard software that can test so much and because the serial number on this device isn’t recognized by Apple’s servers.

Many people love to clean iPhone screen with Alcohol or other household cleaners since it can clean the prints and dirt easily, dries fast, and sterilizes the device as well. But the truth is that’s very dangerous.  There’s a piece of news reported by 126.com providing us a live example that someone damaged his screen while cleaning with alcohol.

From the picture he shared, it’s easy to find out that the solvents went into the iPhone 5S screen and seems to have the inner screen dyed with ink.  Actually, there is a very thin coating inside of iPhone to protect the inner screen. But it dissolves in many types of liquid solvents easily. So it’s highly recommended you not to clean iPhone and other iOS device with those solvents.  And according to Apple, the best way to clean iPhone is to wipe it gently with soft, lint-free cloth. And if there is something hard to clean, you can put some drops of water onto the cloth, squeeze it out, and use the dampened cloth to remove the stuck-on substance. Besides, the outside screen of iPhone is also covered with oleophobic coating which makes figure prints easily removing. Liquid solvents may damage the coating as well. So if you don’t want the outside screen being damaged, you’d better take a soft, lint-free cloth with you and clean the iPhone screen as soon as there’s stain on it.

Conclusion

How to clean iPhone?

1. Unplug iPhone from any external power sources or cable accessories, and turn it off (hold the button on the top and wipe the screen to power off.)

2. Use soft, dry, lint-free cloth and wipe the screen gently.

3. If there’s some stains hard to wipe off, you can put some drop of water onto the cloth, squeeze it out, and use the dampened cloth to clean.  Don’t use household cleaners or sprays to clean the iPhone, such as alcohol, window cleaner, etc.  And don’t get moisture into any openings.

4. Take the soft, lint-free cloth with you and clean the iPhone as soon as it got stains.

What should you do if liquid already made its way into your iPhone?

You’d better seek assistant immediately from an authorized service provider or Apple Retail Store. And please note that liquid damage is not covered under the Apple product warranty or AppleCare Protection Plans.

Morgan Stanley is predicting in an investor note that around 10% of those who own an iPhone 5 or later will buy an Apple Watch, generating first year sales of around 30M – right at the top end of the 10-30M range suggested by other analysts.

While predicting likely sales of a new product category is always a rather shaky undertaking, and sales of competitor smartwatches may not prove a reliable guide, Morgan Stanley thinks there is one clue to how well the Apple Watch might sell: the precedent set by the iPad …  expand full story

The iPhone 5c is often criticised in light of its beefy powerful cousins, acting as a bit of a laughing stock for the technology industry. However, it is often reported as one of the top phones by sales volume in many countries (usually beating out Samsung’s offerings).

In fact, for August the iPhone 5c was the best selling smartphone in the UK, even outselling the iPhone 5s, according to Kantar World Panel.

The iPhone 5c was the best selling phone in Britain in August with 8.9% share, outselling the flagship iPhone 5s with 7.6% and the Samsung Galaxy S5 with 6.0%.

Normally, Apple phone sales drop in the runup to the next-generation devices, as customers hold off on iPhone purchases until the new versions are announced. However, Kantar says that the success of the iPhone 5c meant that Apple’s decline was much lower than in previous years.

Remember Apple’s iPhone 5 ad called ‘Thumb’ that boasted the device’s larger screen design while still maintaining one-handed use? They probably don’t want you to anymore. The new iPhone ads almost mock the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus display, though, especially the ‘Huge’ ad. New direction.

But back to that iPhone 5 ad.

The parody video above applies the same idea as the one-hand focused iPhone 5 ad to the massive new iPhone 6 Plus. (Frankly, the parody goes a little easy on the concept, though, as even with Reachability, one-hand use is a streeeeetcccchh.)
