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
“ 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
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
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
Err… Is it iPhone “ex” or iPhone “Ten”
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%)
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
The iPhone X may cost over N385,000..
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.
