The wait is finally over as Apple unveils its new smartphones, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus along with an iPad Pro as well as an all new Apple TV. While the new smartphones have brought in some fresh features like 3D force-sensitive touch and an array of new colors along with a better camera, it has failed to impress investors. They were expecting to see some groundbreaking features in the phone.
Apple iPad Pro and Apple TV fail to impress
The Apple iPad Pro, which is now paired with a stylus called “Pencil”, did not fetch positive responses from investors or Apple lovers. Many even criticized the company for adding the stylus because Steve Jobs never appreciated it.
Although Apple CEO Tim Cook expressed great hopes from the brand new Apple TV set-top box, this has also failed to impress investors. The new set-top box with voice control features is one of the most ambitious projects of the company and a negative reaction may affect the company adversely.
Apple fails to meet expectations?
The expectations with Apple releases are always high and it is often difficult for the company to meet the bar. Things could have been better if the smartphones introduced some innovative technologies other than just modification of the old device. However, the latest iPhone 6s has not made an impression so far.
Apple has launched their new handsets, the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Now that we have seen the specs of the phone, the foremost question on every consumer’s mind is, should you buy the new iPhone? Here the deal.
The 3D Touch is clearly the most innovative feature of the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6S Plus. It allows you to play with the phone and its apps in new and interesting ways. Taking over from the Force Touch that makes it easy to access the Apple Watch and new iOS interface, 3D Touch makes interacting with the phone even more interesting. You can pull down the menu, create shortcuts and access features of the same phone in new ways.
Apple has also worked on some physical features of the phone. To make a sturdy iPhone, Apple has used a custom-made aluminium alloy. The display glass is the Ion-X that has been used to make the Apple Watch, which should make it a little more flexible.
The new iPhone 6S is the same size as the previous phone. However, it uses the new A9 64-bit processor and Apple says it will offer 70 percent faster CPU and 90 percent faster GPU. There is also a 12MP rear camera on the phone now, a big leap.
There have been many improvements over the older iPhone 6 in the new launch. However, these features have been part of many competitors for a long time now. It would be worth your while to think well before shelling out $199 towards the phone.
Apple’s main release event for its latest launches will be held on September 9 at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Insiders reveal that the Cupertino giant will launch the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus along with the iPad Pro and the iPad Mini 4.
Knowing The iPad Pro
For starters, it is time you revise what you know about the iPad Pro. It is a 12-incher tablet and has been rumored since 2014. We expect it to run on the OS X and new reports suggest that it will be built in with Force Touch, which harks back to the Apple Watch.
We are also anticipating a split-screen feature. Apple will ship the Pro from November and you could begin pre orders from October. According to a report published on 9to5Mac, the new iPad Pro will not come in a 16 GB variant but only in 128 and 64 GB models. However, the fact that you can get hands of colors such as grey, silver and gold lends some cheer.
Here’s The iPad Mini 4
Coming to the next release on cards, the iPad Mini 4 will come packed with interesting hardware in a bid to erase the damp memories we have of the iPad Mini 2. On the physical front we expect a sleek build on a 7.9 incher screen and a powerful A-series chip. Throw in a pair of camera sensors, Force Touch and support for split-screen that will indeed enhance the quality of the iPad Mini 4.
As for the price bit, the iPad Pro could stand at around $1000, while the iPad Mini 4 will touch the $399 mark.… Read the rest

More than 225,000 accounts of Apple users have been stolen by malware KeyRaider. Though the news is sure to raise eyebrows, it will be wrong to point fingers on the makers, as the devices were jail broken. Apple is always known for offering high end security on their devices and the credentials were stolen only from the people, who decided to do away with the inbuilt security settings.

What The Deal Could Do?
Apple believes that along with Cisco it could boost businesses using tools equipped with its operating system. This could be a perfect time for such a step since long-dominant Microsoft has been facing threats to its position given that consumers have made their preference for Android and iOS very clear. Cisco has officially said that its networks will see changes for allowing more efficient working. This could contribute to better performance levels.
John Chambers, executive chairman of Cisco said, “Ninety-five percent of companies in the Fortune 500 count on Cisco collaboration and Cisco networks to help their teams be more productive.”… Read the rest

‘Slide to Unlock’, one of the defining features found in an Apple iPhone has been denied a patent according to the Federal Court of Appeals at Karlsruhe in Germany. The upper court has upheld the 2013 verdict of a German lower court. While rejecting Apple’s appeal of patenting the feature, the verdict even mentioned that a similar technique was used by Neonode Inc., a Swedish company, even before the first iPhone was launched in the year 2007.
‘Slide to unlock’ is not a patent of Apple
The verdict has come as a setback for the company, which is reported to be gearing up for the launch of new iPhones in a couple of weeks. However, the Apple office in Germany has not released any official statement in response to this verdict.
With a few days left for the launch of the rumored iPhone handsets, the company may be busy adding some ground-breaking features to make the device unique.
