The iMessage prank

It always good to play pranks and here is another small kiddish iMessage prank. All you have to do is

1. Write something to your friend. Wait for him to reply and then instantly send him bMB7QpX

2. He would be thinking that you are typing something. He would wait for a while and then think it to be iMessage bug and shut the chat.

3. However the next time he opens up the chat again he would realize that this is an image and nothing else.

I know its kind of lame but thats the only iMessage prank we could find.

To get the image go this website.

Get Slow-Mo for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C

The iPhone 5s has an amazing new feature i.e. the slow-mo feature which lets you take videos at 120 FPS and then play it at a quarter of the speed.

Unfortunately this feature is not available on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C but do not get disappointed because there is a solution.

The SlowCam app bring slow-mo feature to the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C. This app is a easy to use application. You just need to press the slow motion button to record at a high frame rate slow motion.

Obviously the quality will not be as good as the iPhone 5s for the simple reason that iPhone 5s is capable of recording videos at 120 FPS whereas the previous versions of the iPhone can record only at 60 FPS.

The app costs just $1.99.

Rumor: iPhone 5S coming to India before November 1

Apple sold 9 million units of iPhone’s in the first week – (Thanks China). This time Apple seems to be showing some love to India.

According to Aptronix, a brand new Apple reseller in Juhu, Mumbai, the iPhone 5S is most likely to come out before Diwali.

The reason here is simple and obvious. iPhone in India is a prestige possession and people spend big bucks in India only during festive season. Diwali is India’s biggest festival. Apple would not want to lose out on this opportunity.

According to other rumors, Apple is all set to open up 100 stores in stores in 2 tire and 3 tire cities in the next 6-9 months to cater to the wealthy people in those cities.

Pricing, however is not yet known. If tech pandits are to be believed the iPhone 5S would cost Rs.50000+ but according to our sources(do not wished to be named) the iPhone 5S would come out at the same rate the iPhone 5 came out in India (Rs.1000 – 2000 difference might be there but will not cross Rs.50000). The iPhone 5C is expected to cost around Rs. 39000.

A Sneak Peak into iPad 5..

iPad 4 hit the market much sooner than people expected. This has led many experts to believe that iPad 5 will also hit the market in the near future this year. According to leak information, Apple has made decision to launch iPad soon due to information that Microsoft’s new Surface Tablet is going to grab a large market share if it released before iPad this year. It is expected that iPad 5 will be available in the market sometime by the end of September or start of October. However, you never know when all of a sudden, Apple announces the final date and all rumors vanish away.

Here are some of the specifications and other news that might give you an idea about this new iPad.

Dimensions

There is always some level of truth in the rumours. The dimensions of the iPad 5 came into light when one of the leading blog TATCUS posted a leaked image of the iPad 5 body. The screen size of this new iPad is expected to remain the same as previous model. However, iPad 5 will be thinner than the previous model. The blog claimed that iPad 5 will be 7.2mm, as compared to the iPad 4 that has thickness of 9.4mm.

Body

The body of the iPad 5 is expected to be the same as before. Many people were expecting that Apple might introduce some light body that would be less delicate and more protective. Bringing less delicate body also brings decrease in price. However, it is least expected that this is going to happen (check insurance cover from £4.79 per month). Such steps are expected for the next iPhone that is expected to hit the market soon. However, this new iPad will have the same body material as the previous iPads.

Processer

A6X processer is already available in the iPad 4. However, Apple is expected to come with improved A6X processer in iPad 5. Many experts are still holding their breath that Apple might introduce A7 processer that will be ready by Samsung in the early months of next year.

New vibrating feature

So here comes Apple with some sizzling vibrating options for the users of iPad 5. It was found out that there have been some recent steps taken by Apple to get patent for vibration feature. Vibration feature will alert users for any new messages or some other feedback that many individuals miss while they are intensely busy in some highly engaging application.

Wireless Charging

An old patent found by Apple Insider gave a guess to many experts that Apple might be introducing wireless charging for its next iPad. It is for sure that the race track of wireless charging is getting more crowded and all of the sudden, companies are trying faster to win this race. Nokia already introduced wireless charging in Lumia 920 Smartphone. iPhone is also expected to come up with this technology, and so is expected for the next iPad.

Weight

So the new iPad will be much lighter in weight and easier to carry. More slim body and light will make it look even more attractive. It will be easily identified by your colleagues that you are holding the new iPad 5. Different experts say that the new iPad will be nearly 25% lighter than iPad 4.

Camera

New model means improved camera, and this time you will be able to get some dazzling shots from iPad 5. The expected jump that you will see in this gadget camera will be from 5MP (in iPad 4) to 8MP in iPad 5. It is also expected that front rear camera will be better in its quality. Apple might bring the front camera of 2 mega pixel. However, you have to wait and see that what package is for you.

More striking games

With a better processer and high expected overall sales, you can surely predict that there will be a lot number of games that you will be able to play on iPad 5. With high graphics quality, you would be able to enjoy some extraneous games that you have never experienced before. Many application developers have already started to produce games for this next amazing gadget.

Price

There is much random leaked news regarding price of the next iPad. Many experts believe that iPad 5 will be introduced in the same price as iPad 4 (£399 for 16GB). However, you can never predict with 100% accuracy the market dynamics and new iPad can hit the market with a little hike in its price.
