Apple Patents A New Delicate All Glass IPhone Design

Published

on

Apple designs phones that other OEMs copy and this
has been going on for a while. There are quite a lot of
phones in the market that imitate the design of the
iPhone 6. This will always happen as long as Apple
keeps designing great devices worthy of emulation.
A new patent filed by Apple suggests an all-glass
phone that can best be described as wild. Well, Apple
has several patents and quite a lot of companies do
this just to protect their ideas.

The patent was filed in April last year but was just
published. It shows a device with a wrap-around
display which is described as a “portable electronic
device with a wraparound display.” The patent
reads :

“ For example, a flexible display can
be folded in such a way as to form a
continuous loop such that images (still or
video) can be presented in a wrap-around
manner in which the images appear to be
presented in a continuous loop. The
flexible display can be folded into a tightly
wound configuration and placed within an
enclosure at least a portion of which is
transparent. In some cases, the enclosure
can be formed of glass at least a portion of
which is made opaque (at least
translucent) by the addition of ink or other
masking material. In other cases,
however, the entire enclosure can be fully
transparent in which case the folded
flexible display can unwind when placed
within the glass enclosure. Once fully
unwound, the flexible display can present
images at any portion of the glass
enclosure.
The design is illustrated as shown below:

This concept has been around for a while, it was
actually first filed in 2011 and granted last year. This
newly granted patent details the concept even more
with added features not seen in the original filing.
The patent describes what Apple explains as
removable end caps, this is similar to LG G5 modules:

‘ This configuration would allow the
end caps to be easily removed for
maintenance purposes. In another
embodiment the removable end cap could
also allow users to add end caps with
additional functionality. For example, an
end cap could be installed that would
allow two devices to be connected together
and act as one system. This could be as
simple as having an end cap with a male
data connector designed to attach to data
connector 218 of another similar portable
electronic device 200. In yet another
embodiment an alternate end cap could
have an improved camera or a different
set of wireless antennae

.
If Apple decides to go ahead with this design, a future
iPhone could look just like this:

As mentioned before, this is only a patent and Apple
may never create a phone that looks likes this. But
hey, this design looks very delicate, but wild.

How To Force Restart The iPhone 8 If It Freezes

Published

on

I’m not really a big fan of Apple products so this isn’t actually any of my business but I decided to make a post about it for you (that’s if you are using an apple device. However, I must not fail to say that the iPhone 8 is a solid phone.
How To Force Restart The iPhone 8 If It Freezes 3

However like most phones, the iPhone 8 still has moments that make it freeze and leave the owner like –
How To Force Restart The iPhone 8 If It Freezes 4

Previously before the release of the iPhone 8, you could hold the power and home buttons for several seconds to force a reboot. This served as a great strategy if your iPhone was frozen, but now you’ll have to use a slightly new way to force-restart your device now because the old method no longer works.

To force-restart your iPhone 8, follow these steps:

1. Press and release the Volume Up button on the left side of your phone.
2.Then, press and release the Volume Down button below it.

3.Finally, press and hold the side Power button until you see the Apple logo appear on the screen, then let go.

If this doesn’t fix your problem, you should try booting into recovery mode:

Connect your iPhone to your Macbook or PC with iTunes installed using a USB cable.

Follow the same steps, but hold the Power button even after you see the Apple Logo.

You’ll see a Connect to iTunes screen appear after a few seconds. Release the Power button, and launch iTunes.

iTunes will tell you there’s a problem with your iPhone. You can choose Update or Restore to attempt to fix it.

This method isn’t as smooth as it was before, but it still only takes a few button presses. Hopefully you’ll never have to use it

iPhone X Launching Tomorrow [12 September] – May Cost Over N385,000

Published

on

Apple will be launching the iPhone X alongside with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 , ( the iPhone 8 and 8 plus turns out to be what we’ve been calling the iPhone 7 s and iPhone 7 Plus.) tomorrow and just in case you’re wondering why it’s called iPhone X, it’s the 10th anniversary of the iPhone.

iPhone X Launching Tomorrow [12 September] - May Cost Over N385,000 5

Looking at the name, I’m still trying to make sure I’m not calling the name wrongly.

Err… Is it iPhone “ex” or iPhone “Ten”

iPhone X Launching Tomorrow [12 September] - May Cost Over N385,000 6

I guess we’ll have to wait until Tim Cook mentions it during the launch tomorrow. Nothing much has been said about the specifications of the new iPhone officially but a couple of leaks have actually showed us what to expect. Here’s a summary of what I’ve seen in the leaks so far – (However take this information with a pinch of salt until we hear from the horses mouth
– Tim Cook 😀. Although the chances of this information being correct is 85%)

iPhone X Launching Tomorrow [12 September] - May Cost Over N385,000 7

1.There’s no Touch ID, It’s replaced by Face ID. (This means you’ll be unlocking the device with your face instead of a fingerprint)

2.The iPhone X Side Button will actually not be clickable but press-able like the iPhone 7 Home Button with Force/ 3D Touch. It also has Hall Sensor Built in which can support iPad Magnetic Sensor like accessories (Smart Cover).

3 iPhone X is powered by a new A11 fusion SoC, which features a six-core processor. Four are so-called “Mistral” high-performance cores, while the other two are low-power “Monsson” cores.

4. There’s Wireless Charging

5. iPhone X will have  Animoji. It’s a type of customized animated messages that use your voice and reflect your facial expressions. It makes use of face-tracking hardware.

The iPhone X may cost over N385,000..

My reaction…
iPhone X Launching Tomorrow [12 September] - May Cost Over N385,000 9

I’m actually thinking of the number of things I could get at that amount, Bags of Rice, A new laptop, 6 Oukitel K1000 Phones.. A farm in Ogun State.. The list is actually endless

Nevertheless, I think Apple really did a good job with the iPhone X but it’s a bit Overpriced.

Apple will also be unveiling the new 4K Apple TV tomorrow.

The Launch Starts By 7pm GMT+1.

[Video] New Video Shows Off The Beautiful Apple iPhone 8

Published

I’m not an apple fan boy but I really think the iPhone 8 looks really amazing and I wouldn’t mind having one though.

[Video] New Video Shows Off The Beautiful Apple iPhone 8 12

A number of the leaks that have been online in the past couple of weeks have looked surprisingly real while a few others have been blatant fakes, but there’s something really interesting that has happened during the past several weeks — a unified vision of the iPhone 8 has begun to take shape. From schematics to renders and leaks by phone pack manufacturers.

But I’m still wondering..

Did Apple Drop Their Signature Home Button Because Samsung Dropped Theirs?

[Video] New Video Shows Off The Beautiful Apple iPhone 8 13

However, it’s not surprising that not all of the leaks match the other leaks, but with the number I’ve seen so far, I think I have formed picture of what the iPhone 8 will look like in my head.

This week, Steve Hemmerstoffer teamed up with Tiger Mobiles to bring that vision to life.

The video below is what I’ll call a hands-on video with the “iPhone 8” — or at least what you should expect the iPhone 8 to look like. The model’s developers have explained everything in the video description.

“is manufactured via CNC process. It is based upon 3D CAD sourced directly from the factory in charge of building the new iPhone.”

You’ll see the rumored design and all of the supposed features of the iPhone in the video, from the vertical dual camera setup to the bezel-less display to the weird camera and sensor arrangement of the front of the phone.

The power button seems to have also grown by at least a few millimeters, but the volume buttons and the Ring/Silent side switch appear to be mostly unchanged.

There’s really nothing new here, but this could be the closest look you’ll ever get of the iPhone 8 until Tim Cook brings it out on stage later this year. Or until someone leaves it in a Taxi… Which is almost..

Google To Launch Google Assistant On iOS

Published

on

Google will be releasing the iOS version of their assistant app soon. The app will first be available in the US at launch before being rolled out to other regions.

Google To Launch Google Assistant On iOS 16

The closest iOS users had access to Google Assistant on iOS was through Allo. Although, there is Google Now available through the Google Search app. I’m are not sure whether the Assistant functionality will be part of the Search app or a standalone app altogether.

My Verdict

I really don’t think Google Assistant will be able to take on Siri on the iOS platform . If it comes as a standalone app, It might get a couple of users in the first few weeks but they’ll still drop back to a miserable number in a few months. The only way to get iOS users to use Google Assistant more frequently is to integrate it to Google search. If it comes as a standalone app, I’m pretty sure iOS users would be skeptical about using Google Assistant to replace Siri.

The iPhone 8 model will also come with an iris scanner, a feature that was first debuted on Samsung’s Galaxy Note7 but is expected to be available in the S8 and S8 Plus.

The companies that make up the iPhones’ supply chain will allegedly start delivering parts and components for the next-gen devices by the end of the first quarter, earlier than in the past. That said, the new handsets may still be announced in September as usual.
