apple iphone 5s vs iphone 5
General

It has nearly been an year since Apple released the iPhone 5. While it has performed superbly in the market, a lot has changed over the past year. Samsung has increased its dominance over the global smartphone market, in fact in many markets it is outselling the iPhone. Naturally Apple has a tough time on its hands, and it must release a new iPhone that is capable of withstanding the onslaught of Android powered devices, not only from Samsung, but from the likes of HTC, Motorola and LG. According to latest reports, the next generation iPhone, better known as iPhone 5S, is on track to be launched in September alongside the much rumored low cost iPhone a.k.a iPhone Lite.

We have seen a lot of rumors pertaining to iPhone 5S release, but as yet Apple has not confirmed when exactly iPhone 5S release is taking place. We can’t expect it to do so before it starts sending out invites to the media for the actual unveiling event. It is now widely believed that iPhone 5S will be released in September. Many reports suggest that due to production issues, it is possible that the launch may be pushed in to October. So there’s no correct way to ascertain right now how long it would take after the unveiling for iPhone 5S release in the market.

As far as the low cost iPhone is concerned, Apple has reportedly developed this device to get a footing in the mid-range smartphone market. The fact that the company’s previous generation iPhones such as the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 account for nearly 50 percent of all iPhone sales, is enough to make the company believe that there’s a mid segment waiting to be exploit through a budget iPhone.

The low cost iPhone is said to be similar to iPhone 5. However it won’t use expensive materials such as glass and aluminium. Instead it is said to have a plastic casing that will not only make it lighter, but will also make it cheaper thus allowing Apple to aggressively price it. Both smartphones are expected to be unveiled together at an event this September.

Apple purchased AuthenTec almost a year ago, but there isn’t yet any confirmation whether we will see a Apple iPhone fingerprint scanner any time sooner or not. There have been too many signals indicating the long rumored feature being sported by the next Apple iPhone though this time around. When Apple iPhone features fingerprint scanner, it would not be just another feature, a toy or a gimmick. Apple plans to use it in a very serious way helping it to authenticate and secure mobile payments.

Thursday morning, a release by the USPTO showed an application made by AuthenTec that was assigned over to

With no official announcements or confirmations, it is expected that Apple will replace its iPhone 5 with the new iPhone 5S, later this year. While the iPhone 5S would be the company’s new flagship, it will not completely out-date the current Apple smartphone keeping the iPhone 5 a viable option for many interested buyers.

Last year Apple delivered iPhone 5 which proved to be a landmark for numerous reasons: it sported a new design bringing in aluminum rather than plastic; it came with 4G LTE data speeds, never seen before; and it was introduced with a 4 inches display that is larger than any previous iPhones. While Apple is heavily rumored to be releasing its incremental update of iPhone 5, the new iPhone 5S, it will not be replacing the iPhone 5 as an option, considering many attractive features of the current Apple’s flagship smartphone.

Keeping up with the loads of rumors coming up for the next-gen iPhone, the latest one is about Apple finally using unbreakable LiquidMetal for iPhone 5S and the next generation iPad casing. This rumor had first started with Apple iPhone 5, but as we saw it dint make to the iPhone 5. This time though, things are looking a bit more realistic.

Only yesterday the patent was approved for “bulk amorphous alloy sheet forming processes”, granted to the Crucible Intellectual Property. This patent would allow manufacturers to produce sheets of metallic glass of

The latest news is coming from Jefferies analyst Peter Misek, who has claimed that Apple iPhone 5S launch is almost here. Misek says that iPhone 5S will start going under production later this month and will be launched this fall. While this is some hearty good news, we still have quite a few months to get our hands on the Apple’s next smart phone.

Jefferies analyst is also speculating that the Apple iPhone 5s will see some 25 million to 30 million units shipped,

Apple is working on new the iPhone prototypes of iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6. Even though we aren’t seeing Apple iPhone 6 until year 2014, it is getting popular with each passing day in the world of rumors. Since the Apple’s release cycle gives buyers a good time to have their contracts over, those who aren’t looking forward to iPhone 5S can start to looking towards the new iPhone 6 releasing next year.

Remember, there hasn’t been any official trailers, images, photos or any announcements. So those who are claiming of breaking the news of official reports of iPhone 6 are just messing around the Apple iPhone 6 concept phone. Like in the past, Apple is not discussing any rumored products, hence the speculations are on the peak;

There have been a lot of speculations made for the next iPhone 5 that is set to be launched soon. This time, it has been said that two variants of Apple iPhone will be launched; the regular and the low-priced version, named Apple iPhone Lite. Numerous of the rumors have also focused on the quality of the iPhone Lite and how it would exactly be the same as a standard iPhone but just with somewhat cheaper parts.

We have seen Apple iPhone Lite leaked image every now and then, claiming to be the next gen iPhone. Add to it the latest entry too: a pair of photos have been revealed claiming to be Apple iPhone Lite. Both these photographs are being dubbed as the low-cost variant of iPhone in the color white.

We talked about the internal hardware specifications of Apple iPhone 5s with leaked photos of internal components, here is a list of some of the other specifications, both hardware and software, along with some pictures of the new looks of the new iPhone. The new iPhone 6 – rumors still seem confused about what the new iPhone will be called expecting that the digits might be dropped considering the iPad Mini ways – would be available in five colors: red, yellow, blue, green and white are the expected ones with the framing part in black or white for all the models.

The Apple iPhone 5S has been speculated upon a lot these days, many people believe that Apple’s upcoming smartphone will be an evolutionary upgrade. We’ve seen the company do this in the past as well, a new iPhone with the ‘S’ moniker was first released after the iPhone 3G. Late last year Apple released iPhone 5 and now it is expected to make the announcement of iPhone 5S this summer, however it is being said that the Apple iPhone 5S launch is being delayed presumably because the company has run in to production difficulties, particularly related to its fingerprint technology.

Recently we had heard rumors that iPhone 5S production was to begin this quarter and that Apple was looking towards a summer release. It was speculated that Apple would make the announcement at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, which has been the venue for previous iPhone announcements. The iPhone 5S release date was pegged at June 20th by some sources, though there has been no confirmation about Apple iPhone 5 from the company itself. They’ve kept mum on everything related to their next generation iPhone.

Reuters is now reporting that iPhone 5S release will be delayed as Apple has run in to production issues. It is looking for a coating material that does not interfere with the fingerprint sensor, which is rumored to be placed under the Home button. Fingerprint technology on the iPhone 5S has been rumored a lot these past few days, Apple has a variety of patents relating to it as well, though one can’t be entirely sure if something of this sort will be added to the next generation iPhone.

The Apple iPhone 5S is expected to be thinner and lighter than its predecessor. It will also reportedly tout a 12 megapixel camera, possibly a larger display and improved internal hardware package. The company is expected to many an announcement in Q3, 2013.

Here’s yet another iPhone 5S rumor, though this one comes from a very established source. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple will begin iPhone 5S production this quarter, this will be in time for a release in Summer. As always, WSJ cites people familiar with the matter. According to them it is going to be similar in shape and size to the iPhone 5.

iPhone 5S production

Apart from touching on the iPhone 5S subject, the report also mentions the much rumored low cost iPhone that we have been hearing about for quite some time now. Their “people” claim that Apple is working closely with its manufacturers in Asia and a low cost iPhone could be released in the second half of 2013. It will have a 4-inch screen and its casing will be different than that of the expensive iPhone. Apple has reportedly tried many different color casings but it has yet to decide on one. Apple does not have an official standing on this product, and their spokespersons have vehemently denied commenting on the low cost iPhone.

If Apple does come out with a low cost iPhone, it would confirm the observation that the company feels threatened by the infiltration of mid-range smartphone market by Android devices. There’s a lot of money to be made in that particular market and Apple has no presence whatsoever in it. A low cost iPhone would put Apple in a much better position, considering simply how staggering the brand value is of the iPhone. Apple certainly knows that and it is definitely going to cash in on that.

As far as the iPhone 5S is concerned, it is safe to say that it will be a standard affair. There will be no design changes. Internal hardware will be updated and it will come with iOS 7. Hardware updates and new software based features, that is what we can expect from the iPhone 5.

General

We’ve been hearing for quite some time now that Apple is going to release iPhone 5S this year. We’ve seen the company take this route twice before, when it releases a smartphone with minor updates and identical design to its predecessor. A new report pegs iPhone 5S release date on June 20th, coinciding with previous rumours that an announcement in this regard will be made in Summer, possibly during the Worldwide Developers Conference 2013.

iPhone 5S

So that settles it for iPhone 5S release date, but since it is a rumour, we can’t count on it to be entirely true. The same rumour suggests that shipments of iPhone 5S will begin in July. It also briefly touches on the hotly debated cheaper iPhone. Apparently Apple is going to release a mid-range iPhone to target developing markets where Android devices from a multitude of developers currently reign.

Apple has certainly deviated from its clinical release cycles. We saw the company release two iPads in less than seven months. We saw it change iPhone release cycle to fit the holiday shopping boom. We also saw the company release a smaller iPad, something which we thought the company would never do. This makes it clear that the company is adapting to changes in the market, and it can do a lot more for itself and the market by releasing a cheaper iPhone.

The timing is certainly right. Major manufacturers such as Samsung and HTC have already announced their new flagship smartphones, all with next generation hardware, the kind that iPhone 5 does not have. It seems logical for Apple to release a new smartphone with bumped up hardware so that Android doesn’t take the lead in the market. Since June is a bit far off, I’m not entirely sure about this iPhone 5S release date. It is a little too early to consider this to be true.

Only a couple of days back the evasi0n untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.x was released. Many iPhone users were asking when Ultrasn0w for iOS 6.1 was going to be released. Turns out, it was quietly released back on Monday. The new Ultrasn0w for iOS 6.1 brings iPhone unlock on supported basebands, meaning that only those iPhones can be unlocked which are still running on unlockable basebands.

Ultrasn0w for iOS 6.1

People who have newer iPhones such as the iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 will not be able to use Ultrasn0w for iOS 6.1 to unlock their devices. These iPhones have basebands which cannot be unlocked using software based methods such as Ultrasn0w. This method is nonetheless compatible with iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.

Once again let me remind you that it is imperative that your iPhone has a supported baseband for Ultrasn0w to work. Ultrasn0w for iOS 6.1 brings iPhone unlock on iPhone 4 running baseband 01.59.00. For iPhone 3GS the supported basebands are 06.15.00, 05.12.01, 0.5.11.07, 05.13.04 or 04.26.08. If you don’t know how to check the baseband on your iPhone, launch Settings.app, go to General followed by About. Scroll down, the numbers in front of Modem Firmware tell you what baseband your iPhone is running on.

If you’re unlocked on an older firmware and are upgrading to iOS 6.1 firmware right now, be sure to retain your old baseband before updating. You will need redsn0w tool for this. Download redsn0w, launch it, click on Extras, Even More and Restore. From there you can choose not to upgrade baseband while upgrading to the newer iOS firmware. Once restoration takes place, you can follow this guide to jailbreak iOS 6.1 untethered using evasi0n.

You will need to add a repository in Cydia to download Ultrasn0w for iOS 6.1. Launch Cydia and tap on Sources. Now tap the plus icon and add the following url: http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com. Once you install Ultrasn0w for iOS 6.1 restart your iPhone once. It will now be unlocked.

If you’d like help with any particular step or are confused about unlocking your iPhone, leave a comment below and we’ll help you out immediately.
