Drag and Drop on iPad in iOS 11 Beta

 iOS 11 Beta

Drag & Drop in iOS 11


Apple has introduced various new features with iOS 11which will make the operating system of iPad look and feel like an old-fashioned desktop setting. The significant feature of iOS 11 on the iPad is the drag and drop facility which changes the whole iOS paradigm, integrating a decades-old desktop feature that tends to make it feel like a drag and drop had been waiting for touchscreens to come along.

It appears like all the apps of Apple have got a dose of drag and drop in iOS 11 inclusive of the Maps. The iOS 11 tends to add system-wide drag and drop providing the user with a quick and simple way of moving text, images together with files form one app to another. You could just tap and hold to pick up the content and then drag it to another app.

Multi-Touch, is a new method of selecting multiple items which enables you to pick up various items quickly by tapping. With the spring-loading, you could also copy to another app on dragging the content over the icon of the app in the Dock or on the Home screen. Drag and drop has the benefit of the power of Multi-Touch with the ability of moving content between apps which feels natural on iPad.

Incorporated through all iOS


Tap and hold on an image, a file or selected text and then drag it to where you need it to go. Moreover you could also drag contact, maps, reminders and much more. In the case of spring-loading, one can utilise drag and drop in order to open an app wherein you can move the content from one app to another by going over the icon. Then pick up the content needed to move and hold it over the icon of the app in the Dock or on the Home screen and the app tends to spring open.

Thereafter you can drop the content wherever you desire it to be placed. The iOS 11 has introduced a quick and easy means of selecting various items wherein one can drag one item and thereafter tap others to add to them.

Drag and drop has been incorporated all through iOS and can be utilised in the Home screen, Calendar, Dock Messages, Files, Safari, Contacts, Spotlight, iBooks, News, Notes, Photos, Maps, Keynote, Page and Numbers. By utilising a simple and powerful API one can implement drag and drop in their app.

Official Launch of iOS 11 – This Fall


The new system-wide drag and drop option tends to change the manner one utilises their iDevice. Rather than having to think ahead on what one intends to do, you could get on and do it. For example if one wants to send a location to someone while sending an email in iOS 10 and earlier, you could usually ditch the present email and go to the Maps apps, locate the area and then share it from there.

 In Maps a steady drag tends to move the map around like before and to drag a location one should pause a bit after tapping the screen before you tend to drag. While planning a trip you can now run the Maps and Notes app alongside probably with a Safari panel floating above and drag locations into the Notes app as you tend to locate them.

Utilising this feature is simple and you can use drag and drop in Maps. Though the beta tends to be yet a bit buggy, the best option to view Maps drag and drop so far is to open Notes in Split View and then tap and drag a location over to Notes and it is done.

On the iPad under iOS 11, one can start on email and work out other things later. By working in Split Screen one can drag location from Maps, URLs from Safari, images from Photos as well as documents from Files By official launch of iOS 11, this fall, and several more apps would be supporting drag and drop.

Apple – Has the Right Feel


Apple seems to have the right feel and it is quite natural that one scarcely notices the difference and one will find your iPad doing about almost everything that is needed to be done. Owing to this improved medium-long tap, one can bring up information on a location.

You could execute this medium-long tap on any feature one may desire in order to learn more and a little card tends to pop up with the additional information. Should the location be a regular area in a street, then one will have to mark it with a pushpin.

The drag and drop implementations in iOS11 is not just a new feature which has been placed over the prevailing iOS design but has been baked into each area of the operating system. For instance, if one tends to let their finger linger on a link in Safari, it transforms into a little draggable card with the URL and title printed on it ready to be dragged.

Replace Your Dubious iPhone 7 Headphone Dongle with Lightning Adapter

i 1

FijiO Nifty i l Headphone Amplifer


The 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7 has been stopped by Apple and the chances are bleak of the same returning on the iPhone 8 and what users having nice wired headphones ought to do? Probably they could utilise the Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter that tends to come shoved with the 7, though it is far from an ideal solution.

It is said to be one of the lowest rated products on the Apple’s site with 209, one and two star reviews. The customers of Apple tend to disapprove of the adapter. The iPhone 7, with FijO.s nifty i1 headphone amplifier together with the digital converter, iPhone 7 users tend to have a better choice. It comes at a price of $39.99 on Amazon in the U.S. and in the UK at £49.99. The Australian price is not fixed though one could expect the same for around AU$80.

 Comparing the two adapters, of FijO and Apple, beginning with a Sennheiser Momentum 2.0, the i l’s bass definition packed down equalled with the adapter of Apple. The drums and vibes with `Pink Up’ from Spoon’s `Hot Thoughts’ album tend to have plenty of reverb and the i l seems to sound much clearer than the Apple adapter though lot much but with a difference.

Big Sonic Upgrade Over Apple Adapter


When plugged in the Beverdynamic T51p on-ear headphones. The changes observed were quite obvious. Moreover the Apple adapter seemed to sound muted as well as dull and the i l was said to have more life and energy. The i l had also been tried with some in-ear headphones with the Ultimate Ears UE900 where the difference of the quality of the sound seems only a bit insignificant.

 It was not all convincing that i l is a big adequate sonic upgrade over the Apple Adapter with each headphone. But the good news is that considerably improved sound is made available from the AudioQuest DragonFly Black - $99, £89, AU$160, and DragonFly Red - $199, £169, AU$320, portable headphone amplifiers/digital converts which tend to function with iPhones. The no-win situation is they are the size of a USB flash drive and hence they tend to be bigger and much bulkier to carry around than the i l.

Mic & Online Controls


The i l cable is said to have a mic together with the inline controls though the quality of the sound seems to be a bit stifled. There have been occasions where initially the i l had not played music but on unplugging and replugging once of a couple of times, the Lightning connector seems to bring back the sound. The Lightning does not seem to be the most reliable connector for audio devices. The 32-inch cable of the FijO i seems to be too long and could be half the length.

However as it stands, it could be a viable alternative for iPhone users who tend to have decent pair of wired headphone and would prefer something a bit better than the less-than-stellar Lightning adapter of Apple. Hoping that improved adapter does ultimately show up though presently the iPhone 6S may run through which has a 3.5mm headphone jack together with the Lightning connector.

iPhone 7s: The Most Expensive Phone in the History of Apple



New rumors about the next Apple smartphone: In addition to the expected iPhone 8, there could also be an iPhone 7s and an iPhone 7s Plus - with subtle differences.

It is the usual game in the weeks and months before the release of the latest iPhone. Professional bloggers, self-styled experts, alleged insiders and also serious media speculate how the new Apple smartphone will be, as it is said, and what features are expected.

So it's 2017 again. At the heart of the speculation is the generally expected iPhone 8 - if that is the right name. Because so far, Apple only increases the model number by a number every two years. So 2017 would actually be an iPhone 7s in the line.

But maybe there are even both? According to the specialist, referring to the Wallstreet Journal, Apple wants to bring out two other models, which are traded as "iPhone 7s" and "iPhone 7s Plus" in addition to its new flagship. Three at a time could be so in September - if that is the correct release date.

A difference between the model series could then be the display. While the iPhone 7s is based on a flexible OLED display

iPhone 7s

How does the iPhone 7s look - and what features does it bring with it? 

In fact, many indications for the new iPhone point to a new design. Apple's proprietary patents suggest, for example, that the display will be completely borderless. This means not only a larger display with the same or nearly the same overall size of the device but also that the home button could completely disappear.
The entire screen could then become a fingerprint sensor.

The release could also be possible - even speculations - but also by facial recognition. A 3D laser scanner could come into play.

According to the WSJ report, the Lightning adapter could also have some changes. The Apple may possibly replace with a USB-C connector - as it has since 2015 with Macs. This could simplify the connection of additional devices to the iPhone - but would also have the consequence that Lightning would be replaced again after five years.

Better battery in the iPhone? 

The next iPhone could get along without a charging cable. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities claims this - and with his forecasts in the past has often been correct. For the wireless, Apple would have to rework the design of the inner life of the iPhone - but this should be without great difficulty. Perhaps then also a slightly larger and thus more powerful battery on board the new iPhone would be. That Apple disciples much more frequently than other mobile phone owners are looking for a socket, is well-known.

As it is well known, in the case of (branded) products in the tech sector, the brand, as well as the patents and development costs of the manufacturer, are to a considerable degree. The pure material costs are pushed by the Far Eastern mass production. A recent evaluation shows how expensive the iPhone 7 is in production.

The analysis of the market research company IHS have looked at how expensive the new iPhone models are purely on their components and the production is reduced. The result: The iPhone 7 costs in manufacturing 219.80 dollars per unit. The iPhone 7 Plus is five dollars more expensive.

The iPhone 7 Plus is, therefore, more expensive in production than the iPhone 6s Plus. The most expensive single item is the touchscreen, which basically consists of two components: the panel and the touch layer. This information applies to the version with 32 GB of memory. The overall cost of iPhone 7s is estimated to be around $1,400

Leaks and rumours surrounding the new 10th-anniversary iPhone 8

Recently photos and information have leaked that appears to show that Apple is engaging in major overhauls involving their most famous product the Apple iPhone. Leaks appear to indicate that after spending years reiterating on the original iPhone design the iPhone 8 is going to be radically different from the phones that have come before.

The leaks come from a highly credible source named Steve Hemmerstoffer (Whose twitter username is @OnLeaks) He has said that these leaks are “sourced directly from the factory in charge of building the new iPhone”. Hemmerstoffer has worked with Tiger Mobile in the past and has proven to be a very credible source in the past. The leaked images show a very different style of phone. The iPhone 8's measurements will be, according to the leaks, 143.5 x 71 x 7.5 mm. These measurements would make the iPhone 8 appear very short for what is traditionally sold. Another feature is the protruding dual camera. This will perhaps make the phone slightly more difficult to use on flat surfaces as the uneven back will mean the phone will have trouble resting on flat surfaces. However, the massive 5.8-inch high-resolution display is a huge boon for the phone. There also seems to be space for the ios 11 function area. The edges also appear to be curved on both sides which are also a new design. Another feature is the lack of rear fingerprint scanner and physical home button. There does not appear to be any increase in battery size.

The other leak is sourced from a case maker named Olixar. Olixars leaks match up almost perfectly to Hemmerstoffer’s leaks. However, the size is slightly different with Olixar saying that the iPhone 8 will be 145 x 73 x 9mm. This leaker has previously correctly leaked the iPhone 7, Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8. Olixar is a retail partner with Mobile Fun and they have released videos showing off the official iPhone 8 case and screen projectors. This video even compares the iPhone 8 to the iPhone 7.

Other then these leaks there have been various rumours floating around about the iPhone 8. For example, there has been rumours that Apple is planning on using glass as its main material in the iPhone 8. This would greatly help them in their competition with Samsung as this would mean that Apple has discovered a way to put the handset's fingerprint beneath into the screen.

Another rumour has it that Apple is planning to deliver a handset with a wireless charging option. This is an option Samsung already provides. Apple had (allegedly) considered wireless charging for the iPhone 7 but in the end, it was not available upon release.

One interesting rumour is that the iPhone 8 will have a flexible plastic OLED display rather than an LCD display. This would mean the device would consume less power and offer a better display and possibly higher contrast ratios and more realistic colour. The iPhone 8 is also expected to be waterproof but may even improve upon previous iterations in its water resistance.

Internally the iPhone 8 is expected to have a 10-nanometer A11 chip this would mean that the iPhone 8 will be far faster and more battery efficient than previous models. Iris, Facial and gesture recognition are also rumoured to be included in the new Apple iPhone. 3d sensing capabilities have also been rumoured. However, it is important to note that none of these features have been confirmed by Apple or the leakers.

This new phone is a massive step forward for Apple. They are radically changing their traditional designs which could continue to their iPad and other products . This is most likely in an attempt to stay competitive in an increased competition driven market. The iPhone 8 will be facing up against the hotly anticipated Pixel 2 and it will be quite the clash of the titans to see who comes out on top in an ever increasingly saturated market. There is currently no release date announced for the Iphone 8 but it is expected to be officially announced very soon with a release date to follow shortly.

Apple Leak 'Confirms' iPhone 8 is Massive

Apple iPhone 8: Display with mega resolution


This year it has Apple has to celebrate the release of iPhone 8! This cries formally after a glorious keynote with features that the world has not yet seen. Especially Samsung has done with the Galaxy S8. As always, Apple remains silent, of course. Luckily there are the rumors and talkative suppliers: These sources provide daily information on the iPhone 8. When it comes? For mid-September, many Apple employees have received a holiday lock - this could be a hint.

And apropos Samsung Galaxy S8: A first comparison with Samsung's super smartphone is already there. The hitherto most pertinent reports: Foxconn employees have talked on reddit times really from the sewing box, a supplier has confirmed a wireless shop and first sharp pictures of the new iPhones have dived. Macmyth.com bursts through the rumors and collects all news about the hottest smartphone of the year - the Apple iPhone 8.

All rumors about the iPhone 8:


June 23, 2017: Gigantic Resolution?

Forbes reports that the display of the iPhone 8 is not only huge but also extremely high resolution. According to the report, the upcoming Apple smartphone will offer 2800x1342 pixels. For comparison, the iPhone 7 Plus brings it to 1920x1080 pixels.

Behind such a resolution, however, is actually a plan stuck - because only for the display of existing apps the display would be completely overqualified. A new VR or AR function is therefore possible in combination with VR glasses - because at low resolutions one sees in this situation every pixel. If the rumors, the iPhone 8 could turn out to be a real VR-cracker


June 19, 2017: Protective glass confirms design



It seems safe: The iPhone 8 has (almost) no edge around the display. This is confirmed not only by all rumors almost in unison, but also manufacturers of accessories jump on the train. The British dealer MobileFun has offered a protective glass for the iPhone 8 for a few days. Although the device is not yet on the market, you are obviously sure that the thick edge only a small area for cameras and speakers remains. If we assume that the dealer does not produce the product for the ton, then the display of the iPhone 8 is really a real eye-catcher.

iPhone 8: Design


For three years, Cupertino has been content with the iPhone-6 design and only made tiny changes during this time. No wonder that there are now much more modern devices in the Android camp. Apple would, in any case, reduce the border - both at the sides as well as above and below. Because even if the iPhone 7 looks like a modern smartphone: the front shows too little display.

In addition to this, Twitter user KK Sneak Leaks uploaded pictures of the "finished" iPhone 8 and showed that the display shows the entire front face, the home button virtually disappears behind glass and distracts nothing from the screen. A similar theory is behind the dummy of Benjamin Geskin, which according to own data shows an (empty) model of Foxconn.

There is also no touch-ID sensor on the back and the display covers the entire front. The latest images are currently available at reddit and Geskin, both of which match the rumors so far: more front-panel display and a clean back. And the touch-ID sensor? This could actually wander in the power button if one looks at this patent.

iPhone 8: Hardware


As far as the hardware is concerned, the rumored kitchen simmers slowly. It is almost certain that Apple is again switching the processor and for the iPhone 8 with the Apple A11. This should be a 10-nanometer-FinFET-CPU, which uses less electricity due to its new architecture and works more efficiently. In the battle for minutes, the A11 would thus be an important building block - even if the batteries are reported to grow significantly.

With a new Logic Board, the iPhone-7-Plus battery should fit into the smaller case and the 5.5-inch model will provide even more power. Together with an OLED screen, a two-day running time seems to be within reach. To round off this idea, other rumors and the statement of an insider attest to the iPhone 8 finally also cable chargers. Like the Apple Watch, the rechargeable battery is also inductive. The memory of the iPhone 8 is still a maximum of 256 gigabytes.

Still a good news: Presumably, the outdated 32 gigabytes versions from the iPhone 8 are a thing of the past and the entry starts at 64 gigabytes. In terms of memory, it is probably at 3 gigabytes, however, iOS in everyday life has not yet shown by its sluggish side. Another exciting rumor: Forbes reported that the display resolution is huge 2800x1342 pixels - that would be more than twice as sharp, as is currently the case with the iPhone 7 Plus.

iPhone 8: Cameras


Main attention of a smartphone is generally the snaps. In the iPhone 7, Apple already installed the sometimes best mobile cameras on the market, the iPhone 8 is probably already something again. According to rumors, the cameras offer an optical image stabilization and may even allow 3D effects in photos. There should also be new developments in the arrangement of the lenses, which are in the iPhone 8 one under the other instead of next to each other - the at least a user claims on Twitter, which wants to upload real pictures. Other rumors confirm this regularly.

Has Apple for the Friends of Selfies on the iPhone 8 an ace in the sleeve - is it really a special feature? A new system consisting of three modules supports 3D capabilities that allow, for example, recordings for augmented or virtual reality (AR / VR) or iris unlocking. There are hardly any rumors about the megapixel number of both cameras; Fortunately, this idle discussion has now moved into the background.
Apple iPhone X: design study in retro style

iPhone 8 Connections: Does USB-C?


The "Wall Street Journal" wants to know from a well-informed source that Apple is thinking about a farewell to Lightning. Therefore, instead of a USB-C socket. Whether the change already on the iPhone 8 comes to bear, is questionable.

Only recently, the AirPods were released and put on Lightning as a charging port. Therefore it is probably - if at all - only at the iPhone 9 or iPhone 10 so far. Logically, the change would be nevertheless, because in particular users of several Apple devices, such as a MacBook Pro and an iPhone, do not currently have the possibility to use the included Lightning headphones also on the Mac - a mistake in the otherwise interlocking product range, not from Duration. On the other hand, internal sources say that it remains with Lightning.

iPhone 8 & 7S: How many iPhones will it be?


The fact that the iPhone 8 may appear as a very special smartphone, insiders and experts agree. Only under what designation Apple introduces the particularly expensive and noble mobile phone, the spirits separate. In addition to the iPhone 8, the names "Anniversary Edition" and "iPhone X" - both are references to the 10th anniversary of the brand. A Japanese website brings another option into play:

One wants to have found out that Apple the mobile phone under the label "iPhone Edition" issues. This is not a fake, but the most expensive version of the Apple Watch came with this name. Does Apple really release three smartphones, most of which customers do not want to have two? What would an iPhone 7S if there were the successor at the same time? Does this point remain unclear until the day of the keynote?

iPhone 8: Release


And when the new models come - when is it time? September, you should think. But other rumors start from two events this year. So the iPhone Edition is not to appear with the other two iPhone-7S models in the autumn, but by solo appearance at the end of the year, possibly in November. The reason for this may be that the development of the smartphone is not completed.

According to the report, Apple is still experimenting with several prototypes to find out which is best suited for mass production. These should include devices with LCD and AMOLED display as well as variants with aluminum, glass and ceramic housing.

BusinessInsider reports that the financial experts published a report starting from a 2018 release in early May. Based on the details of ValueWalk, the shift is as follows: Apple plans for the iPhone 8 numerous new functions and a fresh design. The parts for the assembly are however not available in sufficient number so that Apple is not able to build by the end of the year enough iPhones of the next generation. Instead, it gives the iPhone 7S, so more time to work on the iPhone 8. But can Apple really miss the anniversary? Probably would be an announcement in September despite all circumstances, but very long delivery times. So, everything is open.

iPhone 8: Price


That does not sound good at all. The Goldman Sachs analyst Simona Jankowski reports that the iPhone 8 could become the most expensive smartphone of the company's history. Keep it right, then the iPhone appears only with 128 GB or 256 GB, so that all entry-level variants were dropped. The prices of the devices count with 999 US dollar and 1.099 US dollar - that would be 25 percent surcharge! In the USA, the price for the entry-level model would, therefore, be the first time in the four-digit range. Currently, the iPhone 7 with 128 GB of memory there costs 749 US dollars. Applying the percentage price increases of the US dollar prices would be on the price tag of the iPhone 8 with 128 GB of memory an amount of approximately 1,100 euros.

Will iPhone 8 reposition its finger print sensor in the power button?

iPhone 8
The Internet is going haywire over this question and there are reasons enough for doing so. Speculations over the repositioning of the finger print sensor in the new iPhone 8 were rife with two positions contending for the top spot; just below the display or on the back. Many experts seemed to have overlooked that there was a third option available and it seems like Apple have gone for that option as well.

How can we say so?

A new patent has been granted to Apple that has the illustration of an iPhone that is edge-to-edge stretched and has a finger print sensor imprinted on the power button located on top of the iPhone. Although it was earlier speculated that Apple will release its new iPhone 8 with an edge-to-edge design it was hardly anticipated that it would also relocate its finger print sensor on top of the phone. Rumors were doing the rounds about the new position which was expected to be at the back of the phone accommodating an edge-to-edge display but the third possibility seemed to have excluded everybody’s imagination and that can be another reason why Apple has gone with the third option. We all know how the company loves to have an element of surprise and that has also proved to be successful from their perspective.

But there are conflicting reports…

..about the location of the finger print sensor which serves as a touch identification function and is also deemed to be located exactly where it was in the previous models, at the bottom separated from the display. According to experts and leakers associated with Apple, the company will not change the position of the finer print sensor which has been so successful over the years and the officials do not want to experiment with something that has been so much approved by the users over the years.

The other contending position is also in the league with a group of experts going with that option. They suggest that the sensor will be relocated at the back of the phone’s body just beneath their iconic Apple logo.
Although the patent indicates otherwise

The patent which Apple had filed in the last month of the previous year clearly indicates that they want to relocate the sensor somewhere not seen before in other smartphones. The pushbutton was only button that has functioned to turn the phone ON and OFF over the years of smartphone evolution. Now Apple seeks to imbibe the functionality of the power button in a whole new sense by placing the finger print sensor on it.

This means that the power button functions dually as a Touch ID function and that the users will have to use the button more often than they used to earlier. The sensor sits cleanly at the top with a layer of sapphire or glass covering it from above. The finger print sensor is most likely to get thinner and hence users will have to roll their fingers over it.

Apple Patents Way to Charge iPhone Over Wi-Fi

Apple Goes Ahead and Patents the Way to Charge the iPhone over Wi-Fi


Apple had something extraordinary and it has become synonymous with this tech firm as well. For quite some time it was reported that Apple is experimenting with the different of chagrining its iPhone and iPad devices wirelessly. Quite recently it has filed a patent which helps these devices to charge at a good pace with contact through using the signals emitted from the Wi-Fi devices in the form of radio frequencies. This also brings our focus to the wireless charging on a more grand level as soon the Apple users will be able to bid adieu to the physical cable for good.

One of the interesting things to note about this patent is that Apple has found a way of re-powering its range of devices not just using the Wi-Fi but also the mobile and millimeter wave signals. Apple patent has clearly proposed the way of directing the electromagnetic frequencies tight towards the device like a beam of energy. 

A little history of wireless charging technology

It would come as a surprise that this technology was invented way back in 1891 by Nikola Tesla. It makes use of an electromagnetic field in order to transfer the energy between the two objects. The conventional wireless charging is supported on a variety of mobile phones by keeping the device on a charging pad or mat. Some of the popular flagship device to support this technology includes LG G4, Samsung Galaxy S7, Google Nexus 6, Microsoft Lumia 1520 and Blackberry Priv Z30. This technology has helped in doing away with cumbersome phone specific chargers to a very limited extent.

Insights from the patent filing

The patent filed by the Apple at the moment only covers the theory behind its method but doesn’t reveal the actual way of doing it. For quite some time rumors were rife that Apple will be introducing the wireless charging on its iPhone series which would mark first time in ten years that Apple has given respite to the users from the lightning cables.

It is quite unclear how exactly Apple will be bringing this technology on its range of devices. It is worth noting that Apple won’t be bringing the short range inductive charging system which is found on the Apple Watch as well as on Samsung Galaxy S8 devices.

This charging technology is quite old and a number of OEMs has been playing with it for few years but they had not found any long range system or capability. Apple has decided to stay away from this technology as it was waiting to come up with a long range system which offers a better option to the users. Just few months Apple has patented the inductive charging station in concept specifically designed for the iPhone.

Way back in 2010 Apple filed a patent to recharge the iMac wirelessly from the distance of 1 metre. But we still fail to see the resurgence of this technology on Apple device ecosystem and this new patent has helped in giving hope to the Apple fans once again.

iPhone Users Warned About Potentially Dangerous "Siri 108" Prank

Siri 108

Caution – Viral Social Media Campaign 


The police department all across the United States are annoyed over a viral social media campaign which has encouraged iPhone users in saying the number 108 to Siri as a prank, which has gone viral. The police have stated that the scam has been spreading all over Facebook as well as Twitter and when iPhone users tend to test the Siri command `just for fun’, they are in reality tying up phones lines at the emergency call centres.

 If you dial 108 you will hear `calling emergency services in five seconds and within a span of five seconds, you will be transferred to 911. Sergeant Adrian Page with the Lonoke Police Department in Arkansas in a Facebook post which had gone viral with over 1,100 shares, had informed users not to fall for it, since it seems to tie up emergency lines. It has been designed specially as a panic code. The number 108 is in fact the emergency services number in India.

 As reported by sources, Apple desired to make it simple for people to contact emergency services from any location in the world and so telling Siri any emergency number of a country would get the user connected to the service for any location. You could ask Siri to call 911 if one is visiting the U.K. and it would dial 999 for local help.

Phone System Preventing Emergency Calls


The Annapolis Police Department in Maryland had mentioned that this prank has been spreading among Annapolis teens and has the possibility to tie up dangerously the 911 phone system preventing emergency calls from being instantly answered.

They have cautioned users not to fall for this trick. According to the National Emergency Number Association , around 240 million calls are said to be made to 911 each year in the U.S. most of which are made from wireless devices and placing prank call to 911 is said to be an offence.

The Marshall Police Department in Wisconsin had warned recently that this prank is problematic since it tends to use resources which are important for others attempting to receive help in case of genuine emergency conditions.

 The police has informed that essentially, telling Siri to call 108 is not a jest and the same should not be done unless in genuine emergency cases. The police agencies all over the U.S. have been cautioning iPhone users of a probable dangerous viral social media prank.

Users Call Emergency Services From Any Location

Pranksters are attempting to trick users into saying `Hey Siri, 108, prompting the digital assistant to contact emergency services wherein the number in India is equivalent of 911. Siri tends to begin a five second countdown on hearing `108’ enabling the users with the opportunity to terminate the call before it goes through.

 But pranksters who seem to share the trick tell users to `close their eyes and wait for 5 seconds before looking at their phone. Though 108 is said to be the emergency service number in India, Apple has made it that way in order that users can call emergency services from any location they may tend to be in the world, according to CNET.

 Users sharing the trick on social media may consider it as harmless but a similar incident had resulted in the death of a six month old boy wherein the caregiver had called 911 thrice on T-Mobile phone and was kept on hold each time she had called and resulted in the death of the infant.

How to Keep iPhone Autocorrect in Check

Autocorrect
If you write a lot with the virtual iPhone keyboard, you will likely get used to the auto-correction, but you can deactivate it if necessary. If the auto correct is deactivated, it is recommended to leave the normal correction activated at least. This still indicates errors but does not automatically repair them. The relevant options can be found in the General and Keyboard settings. Regardless of whether Auto Correct is activated or deactivated, errors sometimes occur when typing quickly. So far you have probably deleted the erroneous word to the point where the error happened and rewritten it from there on. It does not have to be! Here you can learn how to correct your words faster.

Actually, we would just like to tell a friend or a friend that we can still have a coffee after the meal. However, we are typing "sitll" instead of "still".

Instead of deleting the wrong word and re-writing it, just press the backspace key on the virtual keyboard of your iPhone. If the blue bar is at the end of the wrong word, a correction suggestion should appear which you select by tapping. Of course this does not work with every word. If necessary, press the Backspace key a couple of times until you reach the end of the wrong word.

If you have selected the correction, the incorrect word is replaced by the correct one. The correction function becomes annoying when you write with friends and use a dialect or dialect phrases. The iPhone does not recognize the various dialects and therefore makes relatively nonsensical suggestions for improvement or directly makes improvements in the case of auto-correct. We'll show you how to disable this feature easily. 

Disable iPhone Auto Correction

If you want to disable the auto correct on the iPhone, go to the settings and select the General item. Scrolls a little down and taps on keyboard. There you will find the menu point Auto Correct, which you can activate and deactivate with a fingertip.

If you have problems with automatically corrected dialect or abbreviations, you probably work with auto-correction. You should disable it in this case. Apple has put the Auto Correct function so deep into the system settings. After all, iOS devices are selling around the world and one can assume that people with the most diverse dialects write texts on their iPhones. However, there is still no way to switch the function on and off quickly.

What you should consider when writing the text with the iPhone

The relatively small keys on the screen keyboard and some pre-set automatisms can be terribly annoying when writing to the otherwise exceptionally user-friendly iPhone:

When typing, keep in mind the upper / lowercase key. At the beginning of the block and after a block end character, the capitalization is activated automatically, recognizable by the white arrow symbol. Unfortunately, this really meaningful automatism is in some cases inappropriate, for example if you have a shortcut like "etc." insert.

Even more annoying are unwanted suggestions, because if you do not tap the cross symbol on the top right, your text will quickly get mixed up.

Especially if you want to go fast, you can quickly get to wrong keys - if a wrong word suggestion is inadvertently inserted or the capitalization unintentionally activated, the chaos is perfect.

This Tiny iOS Change Will Make Your iPhone Even Zippier

iOS
After a long wait Apple has finally rolled the update for the iOS 10.3 which is expected which will started hitting the devices from Monday. Those who got the chance to get the latest update early on their devices are claiming that their device is surprisingly faster than earlier. iPhone is running with a new vigour and performance is simply way better than it was being produced before the update.

But this isn’t the surprisingly thing which we would love to share with the iPhone users. It is widely known that the new update tends to improvise on the performance of the OS which ultimately helps in getting better output from the existing hardware. But this update has shown a new insight into how the iPhone can be made run much better even after the update.

The key hidden feature

The latest update brings a relatively new kind of fancy file system which plays a judgement role in freeing up the storage space on the OS. But this isn’t the only major improvement made in the iOS by the developers at the Apple. One of the Apple engineer going by the name of Renaud Lienhart has revealed on the Twitter one of the undocumented tweak implement in the OPS. This particular tweak has helped in improving the performance of the iPhone to a whole new extent.

What this tweak is all about? 

The update iOS 10.3 brings a wide range of snappier animation for the OS which allows it to perform exceptionally well. All the animation present on iOS was tweaked as well as shortened to a great extent by the team of the Apple engineers.

The animation which has been the talking point in the whole case of performance boosting relates to almost every aspect of the operating system experience. This animation can be seen in the opening, closing or switching between different apps. It would be absurd to think that simply optimizing the animation will help in getting better performance out a device. Rather this has helped in improving the responsiveness of the OS to the user’s commands or gestures which ultimately gives a feeling of improved performance on the iPhone. This tiny change has made it easier to perform multitasking on the iPhone.

Why wait? Just Update to 10.3 & See the difference

If you are tired with the slow performance of your iPhone then waste no time and update your device to the latest 10.3 version. This will allow you to get the speed boost and it is very good thing to keep your device updated with the latest version of OS as it helps in safeguarding the devices from wide range of bugs and it brings a whole range of fixes. A major bug has been rooted from the iOS with this update which is called Safari ransom bug. In short 10.3 update not just speeds up your iPhone but it also helps in keeping device secure against the bugs.

Though this move is bit awkward and it will take considerable before one gets accustomed to it. Apple has worked all the year to bring a credible solution for this as per the rumors where fingerprint scanning functionality will be embedded right beneath the touch screen.

Curve design to debut on iPhone

It might appear that Apple is simply ripping off all the important design elements of the Samsung Galaxy S8 in its upcoming iPhone 8. But it is other way around. Reports have already in the media for past six detailing most of the advancement and dramatic design which is expected to be implemented on the upcoming device. Samsung is just reaping the benefit of coming in the market first which such a kind of device.

Apple has worked in close association with a number of suppliers to come with an advanced curved display which works in sync with its homegrown technologies. iPhone 8 will certainly embrace the curved display trend which was pioneered by the Samsung but it will be completely optimized for the iOS platform to lend a completely new persona.

iPhone set to feature a new Touch ID sensor

Apple will be bringing a different style of TouchID sensor for the iPhone 8. Earlier it has been widely reported that Apple is planning to do away with the iconic physical home button with the use of ‘discrete ultrasonic transducers’. This will allow Apple to add some interesting gestures support and lot of magical feature right into the screen which can become the talk of the planet for the rest of the year.

Apple has made an announcement about its launch of two new products, which have something special that may instantly attract the users. Perhaps, many of you have not planned to buy iPad because it is too much pricy. However, the most exciting news for you is that a new iPad model has been released at a lower rate. Another product, which may draw the attention of gadget lovers, is the red colored iPhone. Thus, if you have decided to purchase some exclusive products of Apple, you may choose these two latest models.

Cheaper model of iPad- What you get with it-

Though the new iPad is cheaper in price, its size (9.7 in.) gives it a very stylish look. The present price rate for this product is $469, and you may avail it in three shades- grey, gold and silver. If you look for an alternative of iPad Air 2, then this cheaper model is the best option. However, it is almost twenty percent thicker, in compared to the previous models, though its weight is about 469g.

Philip Schiller, associated with the company, has stated that lots of users will prefer this screen size- 9.7-inch. This screen is best for movies, browsing the internet, making video calls with friends and also enjoying the snaps. As all these things are available at a lower cost, the customers may be happy with the new model. So, you may replace your old iPad to have an upgrade. Whether you are using the cheaper model at the home or office, the special features, like A9 chip and Retina Display make everything convenient for you. In addition to it, you may access millions of apps, which are intended only for this model.

Red iPhone- Why Apple has made newer approach with RED-

Now, let us talk about the new RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. With aluminum structure and the matte red color, these models look quite superb. You may get 256GB storage space with this iPhone 7. These latest iPhones are accessible to all users in the USA and several other nations.

Red products always seem to appear excellent, and there is a reason for adding such red color to the iPhones. So, many users are excited to know why Apple has marketed the new version with a different color. The company has made collaboration with the campaign- Product Red in order to prevent AIDS all over the world. However, some say that it is rather crimson rather than red. Thus, buy any of the latest products, released by Apple, and get some exceptional features with them.

Why Apple's red iPhones are not 'Red' in China

Red_iPhone
Tech lovers, who are enthusiastic of using iPhone, perhaps always wait for the release of new handsets of Apple. So, when Apple has recently launched Red version of iPhone 7, everyone becomes excited to have an experience of using the stylish model. Apple has started a campaign with the name- Product Red, and it has comprised all its red colored accessories, including iPods and headphones. The company has planned to sell Red iphone 7 with its red color in order to back up RED- an AIDS or HIV charitable trust.

This campaign of Apple will surely increase awareness of people internationally and produce more funds because each of the deals is to be counted as donation to the stated organization. A specific part of every red colored gadget, sold in the market, will help in funding a group that is working hard for struggling against the serious disease, mainly in Africa. This affiliation has recently led to the contribution of one hundred thirty million dollar. CEO of Apple has said that Apple is now the major corporate supporter to their fund.

No relevance of charity RED in iPhone models for Chinese citizens-

The latest edition of Apple Red iPhone is intended to be made available in more than forty nations of this world. However, the most interesting fact is that the handset is not presented in China as red edition by promoting the charity. It is known to all that China has a high possibility to make large number of sales. But, still, the Red iPhone edition has not been promoted there. The perceptive online users have made out that the marketing strategy, used by Apple for the new version, in China and Taiwan is not same. If you look at Apple’s website, intended for Chinese citizens, you may see that iPhone 7 has no mentioning of the charity RED. Rather, it reveals some other information, such as, time and date for launching the model.

Possible reasons for which Apple has not promoted the campaign in China-

You should not think it to be a mistake of Apple. AIDS and HIV are one of the complicated issues in the country of China. Some agencies have also raised a warning about the threatening AIDS problem of China.

Though a significant amount of advancement has been seen among young generation, government strategies have not been able to prevent the increase of this grave syndrome among homosexual guys in the country. So, it has been guessed that Apple has considered AIDS to be a very sensitive subject to Chinese iPhone users.

There is another presumption behind of avoidance of Red branding in the nation of China. A media has claimed that the iPhone manufacturer has understated its relation with RED, after posting Dalai Lama’s image on a social networking site. China thinks this personality to be a separatist. Though there is no proof to confirm such reason, many Chinese people have criticized Apple’s campaign due to their step for wishing birth anniversary to Dalai Lama.

How to tether your iPad to your phone

hotspot

Connect iPad to iPhone – Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot

All iPhones tends to connect to Internet at any location where a 3G or 4G signal is available though most of the iPads require Wi-Fi to be online. Though some iPad seem to have 3G and 4G connection, they tend to cost more and are not the common device resulting in the iPhone users usually getting online in areas iPad users seem to get stuck offline.

There seems an option here for iPad owners and if an iPhone is in the vicinity, only Wi-Fi iPads could get online by utilising a technology known as tethering. You can connect an iPad to an iPhone or Android device with a few taps and turn it into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot.If the user is aware on selecting a Wi-Fi network on the iPad then he is capable of turning the iPhone into a hotspot due to Instant Hotspot feature which Apple has included with the release of iOS 8.

 However one needs to open the app’s `Setting’ on the iPad, select the Wi-Fi and pick the iPhone for the networks which are made available on the list. If the available network is not displayed on the iPhone, one should make sure that Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth are enabled and that the same iCloud account is utilised on both devices.

Set up Personal Hotspot on iPhone

For the first time, the user will have to set up Personal Hotspot on the iPhone by going to Settings > Cellular > Dry Up Personal Hotspot and then follow the prompts. To enable the hotspot feature on Android device, the procedure may differ owing to the customizations that are made by the producers.

The hotspot feature of the device can be set up on opening Settings and utilising the search bar in order to locate `hotspot’.On giving a name for the network together with a password, you can open the Settings app on the iPad and select the network by going to Wi-Fi. On completion, the hotspot on the Android device can be turned off and your iPad will tend to get disconnected automatically.

Thereafter one will only require enabling the features of the hotspot on the Android device and your iPad will remember the network and get automatically connected. It is a good idea in creating a unique network name together with a password for the purpose of keeping your data secured irrespective of the device one intends using as a hotspot.

Share Cellular Data Connection

In order to share the cellular data connection of your iPhone with a nearby iPad to get it online, ensure that the three needs are met following these steps:

  • On the iPhone tap Settings 
  • Tap Personal Hotspot 
  • Move the Personal Hotspot slider to on/green 
  • Keep Personal Hotspot screen open on the iPhone, you may require the Wi-Fi password which is listed there 

If the user desires to tether to the iPhone the following steps on the iPad needs to be undertaken –
  • Wi-Fi needs to be turned on if the same is not `on’ which can be done through Control Centre or the Settings app
  • Tap Settings 
  • Tap Wi-Fi 
  • View the network created by iPhone which will be the name of the iPhone, for instance, my Personal Hotspot is known as Bluebird’s iPhone. You could tap it 
  • Edit the Wi-Fi network password form the Personal Hotspot screen of the iPhone 
  • Enter the password of the Wi-Fi network from the Personal Hotspot screen of the iPhone

Apple Patent Reveals Docking Gadget to Turn iPhone and iPad Into Computer

Apple Patent
Day n day out we experience a change in our lives. The change in the technological world is inevitable and we are quite surprised by the way the change has occurred. Thanks to the great and top companies in the world which has shaped our lives in a great deal. Well, we are quite familiar with the best phone in the world and that is iPhone developed by Apple. Needless to say, that these phones have the best features and designs in the world. There has been a recent update in the Apple arena that the iPhones or iPads are soon going to work like a complete computer. To be more specific, they will function like the famous Mac book of Apple. Apple’s patent have decided to with this outstanding approach.

THE PLAN 

The US Patent and Trademark Office has published a statement saying that the iPhone would be turned into the MacBook-like shell and power it using the smartphone. This is called the electronic accessory device. Well, the plan is that the touch pad of the Mac book is the place where you can dock your iPhone. There were some images being released on this concept. The Mac book will have everything including the screen, GPU ports, and keyboard. Only the screen of the iPhone will act as a tracking pad. It will also drive the whole unit as well. Well, some speculations is that the screen of the iPhone is inside the laptop chassis.

THE ASSURANCE

The reports have been stated in the Apple Insider but there are still no confirmation from the Cupertino labs whether they are going with this idea of turning the dump laptop terminal into the smart with the help of an iPhone. Well, it is not clear that how the synchronisation would be done in between the smartphone and laptop. The patents are trying out to figure of how to charge both the iPhone and the laptop in one go. So, Apple may have to try our something different from the earlier companies which have tried doing this.

THE FUTURE

It is too early to come to a conclusion now as there have been no confirmed news on this. It is not a new concept but how they bridge the gap is the thing that the common mass are looking forward. It will be big step towards the portability as well as saving the energy. The report also states that the iPad may become the screen for other versions of laptops. People who travel heavily will get a relief as the laptops would be light as well as they won’t have to face the problems of charging. So, now people are in a confused state whether to go for the iPhone 8 later this year or just test their patience for this docking gadget. It is surely going to create a great landmark in the tech market if launched within a few months.
