This is the first time I take so long to recapping an Apple Event, and I am shocked by my actions, therefore I will punish myself with NO CAKE! :P Just kidding, anyways let’s get down to it, there will be two posts really to showcase everything that I want to talk about. First on the list, Apple has finally given the iPad a drastic new image to follow it’s younger sibling the iPad mini.
Many of you probably heard (unless you live under a rock) about Apple’s next generation flagship phone which they dubbed the ‘
What are the major updates with this new generation?
- Speed: The first 64-bit chipset to be installed in a smartphone.
- Camera: A new 5-element lens with f/2.2 aperture and a sensor that is 15% larger than the current one on the iPhone 5, as well as a dual-LED “True Tone” flash that will adapt to the existing lighting to provide better colors and more accurate skin tones.
- Touch ID: A fingerprint sensor built into the home button which will scan your print and unlock the iPhone as well as authorize iTunes purchases.
It seems that this post writes itself every year at around the same time. While I sit here wait for my pre-ordered iPhone to ship and arrive safely in my hands, black market resellers are basically gauging out your pockets and bleeding you dry with the insane prices. I was talking to a friend earlier today and heard that the prices have sky rocketed especially for the Goldpagne iPhone 5s which is now selling at 400 KD for the 16GB model which is pretty much a rip-off.
The best prices however that I have seen are with Mobile 2000 who have limited stock but are closer to the UK prices than ever, especially if you don’t factor in the shipping.
Prepare yourselves, iOS 7 should be available for download between 7-9 PM KWT (GMT +3) time. I’ve been using it for the past three months and I can’t fall in love with it more than I have. Everything is just easier and fresher.
Before you update be sure to back up your device whether it is on the iCloud or on your iTunes connected computer. Once the update appears download and update and hopefully you won’t lose anything.
For those of you who have been beta testers, well all you need to do is back up your phone, download the Gold Master from the iOS Developers page and restore your iOS device by using the last back up you created.
Happy iOS 7 Day!
Note: iOS 7 is compatibable with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPod touch 5th generation+, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, and iPad mini.
