Next Generation Pad Mini Will Focus on Enhancing the Display?

336111_398112373604545_1787474501_oTaiwan-based backlighting industry sources say Apple’s next generation iPad mini will focus on enhancing the device’s display resolution, reports DigiTimes.

The sources have yet to specify whether the device will use Apple’s Retina Display technology to enhanced resolution, but market observers said it is highly likely based on the de

velopment of past Apple products such as the iPhone and 9.7-inch iPad series. That means if the iPad mini uses Apple’s current Retina Display technology, it will have a 2058 by 1536 resolution and 326ppi.The site’s sources also say that Apple will update the 9.7-inch iPad to use just one LED light bar reducing the overall weight.

NEWS / SMARTPHONES iPhone 5 is here, 64GB version costs Rs 1 lakh


There’s a lot of buzz around Apple’s iPhone 5 around as most countries are still waiting to get their hands on the device. India is among the third wave of countries where the iPhone 5 will be available. This potentially points to a late October launch of the device. Fans of Apple in India have reason to rejoice though, as some stores have begun selling the iPhone 5.

Some stores in the grey market have announced their pricing for Apple’s latest smartphone, and the prices are as high as Apple’s other devices. The 16 GB version is available in the grey market for approximately Rs 76,000, the 32GB version for Rs 85,000, and the 64GB version of the iPhone 5 is available at Rs 1,00,000.


According to an earlier report, the iPhone 5 is easier to repair than its older siblings – the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. As per a guide published by iFixit, the biggest issues with manually repairing an iPhone 5 are Apple’s proprietary screws used to keep the device together, and many intricate parts located near the dock that make fixing individual parts dicey. All things considered, the iPhone 5’s front-to-back construction makes accessing the insides of the device very easy, as the screen is the first thing to come out when disassembling the phone.

It was recently revealed that the iPhone 5 runs on a triple-core GPU. The device runs on a custom-made dual-core ARM processor that runs at a clock speed of 1GHz. The GPU uses a triple-core with a higher clock speed, so that the phone can achieve double the graphical capabilities of the A5 processor. The processor is most likely a PowerVR SGX 543MP3. The A5 processor that powers the iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and the fifth generation iPod Touch had a PowerVR SGX 543MP2 GPU.

On the software side of things, the iPhone 5 was recently jailbroken by developer Grant Paul, a.k.a., Chpwn. Paul had recently tweeted a screenshot of an iPhone 5 with the Cydia app installed. The Cydia app is its own app store that allows users to buy and download apps. These apps would otherwise not be hosted on Apple’s own App Store, as many of the apps require permission to use the root features of the device — permissions which aren’t possible to give with a device that hasn’t been jailbroken.

Here is a quick look at the highlighted features of the iPhone 5:

  • 4-inch, 326ppi Retina display at 1136 x 640 pixels
  • GPS
  • Bluetooth
  • 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 720p front-facing camera
  • 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions

Made entirely out of aluminium and glass, the iPhone 5 weighs merely 112 grams, is 20 percent lighter than the iPhone 4S, and is the thinnest iPhone yet at 7.6mm thick. Apple has chosen to debut iOS 6 with the iPhone 5 and the new OS includes Apple’s own Maps app, an updated version of Siri and lots more. Overall, the new iPhone has been upgraded in almost all respects.

Back to Basics: iPhone Jailbreak for Beginners

What is iPhone Jailbreak?

In short, iPhone Jailbreak is the process of hacking an iPhone to free it from Apple restrictions.

Because the iPhone is far from flawless as Apple created it, millions of iPhone users have flocked to Jailbreak in search of changes and improvements to their devices. iPhone has been held back by limited customizability, text message privacy issues, arbitrary data restrictions, and a lack of true multitasking capabilities. But iPhone Jailbreak can solve all of these problems with apps and fixes available in Cydia and Installer.

What is Cydia?/What is Installer?
Cydia and Installer are the unofficial “App Stores” of the Jailbreak world. Developers create apps and tweaks and different utilities and upload them to these package managers, which organize everything into categories. The differences between Cydia and the App Store are the lack of anapp approval process, and the lack of access limits on the iPhone software. In other words, with iPhone jailbreak, you can do things Apple did not design the iPhone software to do.

Why Jailbreak iPhone?

  1. No restrictions. Want a custom wallpaper on your home screen? Custom icons for your apps? Internet tethering? A category system for organizing your apps? The ability to hide native iPhone apps you don’t use? You can do all of this and more with iPhone Jailbreak.
  2. To join the subculture. Sick of Apple’s stranglehold on the iPhone? Those who Jailbreak iPhone belong to a movement of people who demand more from their iPhones. And they’re not gonna let Apple stop them. Beat the system: Jailbreak your iPhone.
  3. Unlock iPhone. To unlock your iPhone and use it on any carrier, you must first Jailbreak your iPhone. Some of the best Jailbreak software below also lets you unlock the iPhone, though unlocking is generally beyond the scope of this tutorial.

Why NOT Jailbreak iPhone?

  1. The folks at Apple know what they are doing. Apple is first and foremost a design company, and there is no doubt the iPhone is a remarkably designed piece of hardware and software. By controlling the user experience, Apple ensures that your iPhone “just works,” and you don’t have to worry about managing battery life or any other technical details.
  2. Jailbreak could (maybe?) brick your iPhone. “When someone develops something for an Apple product and that development isn’t sanctioned by Apple, you run the risk of it not working as it should, conflicting with the device itself, or just all-around bricking that iPhone,” warns Chris Pirillo, who prefers not to Jailbreak his iPhone because “my iPhone just works already.” But I have never heard of Jailbreak completely ruining an iPhone. The consensus at this forum seems to be that the chance is “extremely slim.”
  3. Every iPhone update from iTunes disables even the best Jailbreak software. Every time Apple comes out with an update for iPhone, they find a way to prevent hackers from cracking the code again. Hackers then scramble to Jailbreak the iPhone again and release the new methods. That means if you like to download Apple’s iPhone updates, you are going to have to figure out each time how to Jailbreak your iPhone yet again. Do you really want to play this cat and mouse game?
  4. iPhone Jailbreak could increase your risk of getting a virus on your device. The only two iPhone viruses ever reported have spread across iPhones that have been Jailbroken. That’s not to say the iPhone platform as Apple built it is totally secure. In fact, some say compromising an iPhone’s security is “child’s play” (i.e. easy).
  5. Jailbreak voids your iPhone warranty. If your iPhone is bricked because of Jailbreak, or if your iPhone has another problem and it happens to be Jailbreaked, your warranty becomes void. I once saw a sign at the Genius Bar of The Falls, Miami Apple Store that warned customers not to Jailbreak iPhones or they would void their warranties. Harsh. However, if you simply restore your iPhone software (via iTunes) to factory settings, then you should have no trouble at the Genius Bar.

What is jailbreaking an iPhone? What can you do with a jailbroken iPhone?
To jailbreak an iPhone means to modify it in a way that makes the file system accessible.

For example, with a jailbroken iPhone, you can add passwords to individual apps, trick the iPhone into believing it is using WiFi when it’s using 3G (i.e. for FaceTime calls), add to-do lists to your lock screen with LockInfo, change your app icons, and much more.

However, this is almost always easy to fix by simply restoring your iPhone via iTunes. Sometimes, a jailbroken iPhone will act up or become glitchy, but you can always restore.

Does jailbreak void my iPhone warranty?

Is jailbreak illegal?
Jailbreak is NOT illegal. A federal court in the US recently ruled that it is entirely legal to jailbreak your iPhone. It is your property, afterall.

How to jailbreak iPhone 4? How to jailbreak iPhone 3GS? How to jailbreak iPhone 3G?

What is Cydia? What is Installer?
Cydia and Installer are the “App Stores” of the jailbreak community. Through Cydia and Installer, you can download apps and modifications that are not available on the regular App Store.

Is iPhone jailbreak free?
iPhone jailbreak is almost always released free by developers, with occasional exceptions. Beware of scams that make you pay for jailbreak software that you can obtain for free.

Does jailbreak make apps free?
No. Jailbreak does not make apps free. Apps in the App Store still cost money, and even some Cydia and Installer apps are paid apps that require you to pay before downloading.

How to update a jailbroken iPhone?
You cannot usually update a jailbroken iPhone. Normally, a jailbroken iPhone can be restored to factory settings, updated, and then jailbroken again.

Conclusion: Why I Jailbreak

The iPhone hardware offers endless possibilities for expressing the human imagination, but Apple’s software restrictions hold your iPhone back. iPhone Jailbreak frees your iPhone by letting you do almost anything that is physically possible to do with your iPhone. Jailbreak is the will of the people manifesting itself in an active and thriving subculture.

Yes, the App Store reflects the imaginations and creativity of thousands of developers and iPhone users. Apple has done a great job of making a line of “blank slates” — iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPad, etc. — that are able to continually mold to our collective consciousness as iPhone users. Yet, iPhone can do and be so much more when it is without limits. That is why I Jailbreak.
