Apple iPhone 6s

As everyone waited with bated breaths, Apple finally unveiled its latest iPhone 6s at its annual launch event in San Francisco. As expected, the Apple iPhone 6s looks like last year’s iPhone 6 but the most important changes are in hardware. However, as far as looks are concerned, it is available in a new color called ‘rose gold’ which basically looks a little bluish-pink. But this change in the shade is the only change you can spot between Apple iPhone 6 and the recently launched iPhone 6s.However, the emphasis is on the hardware and Apple has long followed the tradition of hardware upgrades over design development.

Build and Design

According to Apple, the iPhone 6s does look similar to last year’s iPhone 6 but the latest model possesses more internal strength. The chassis used for making the Apple iPhone 6s is a different grade of aluminum, the one that is used in aerospace. The same grade of aluminum is also used in Apple Watch Sport. The company hopes this solves the ‘Bendgate’ crisis that happened last year where customers companied that smartphones ‘bent’ after being sat on. A new and more strengthened glass also tops the latest smartphone.Though the company hasn’t confirmed if this belong to Corning Glass line.


The ‘Force’ Touch

Apple iPhone 6s comes with a variation if Force Touch which can be found on the Apple Watch and some Mac trackpads. The pressure-sensitive touch is also known as 3D touch and can call secondary actions and menus when you press and hold the screen.

New Hardware

The most important upgrade is the hardware upgrade of the iPhone 6s which include upgraded front and rear cameras and video capability. It comes with a 12 Megapixel camera which is quite a leap for Apple given how it has stuck to 8MP cameras in its previous handsets. The 12 MP rear camera’s autofocus will pick up pace and the color accuracy is marvelous. The 5MP front camera is again something to be proud of. But instead of a dedicated flash that most phones offer, Apple uses the home screen to light up instead which increases brightness for selfies.

It will run on iOS 9 including all the software enhancements including a smarter Siri, upgraded OS, low power mode and a long battery life.

How to unlock iPhone

Some iPhones will only work with a certain carrier because they can work only with the SIM provided to the carrier they are locked to. This usually isn’t much of a problem but problems arise when you need to switch carriers. You would probably want your phone to work with the new carrier on different networks. Earlier, you could unlock it by jailbreakingor installing an unlock software. But unfortunate that it is, Apple has patched that software and you can no longer use software unlocks. But you can still use your iPhone for other carriers. Unlocking it means that you can use your iPhone on a different network or carrier. Such an unlocked phone is often called a contract-free phone or SIM free phone. Here is how to unlock iPhone.

Carrier Unlock

  • You can contact your existing carrier and tell them you would like them to unlock your phone. Most of them will do it as long as your contract is over or you are paying an early termination fee.
  • You can also contact the carrier you want to make a switch towards. They would gladly do it if it is SIM from one of their rivals. Begin by contacting your desired carrier and getting to know more about their carrier policy.

Third Party Unlock

You can use the third party unlock method if the above method doesn’t work.

  • Find a service that will unlock your phone by selling unlock codes to you for certain payment. But before you make any payment, do enough research on that company. Beware of scams and frauds especially when you are breaking your carrier’s policies.
  • Retrieve your iPhone’s IMEI code. Your now unlocked phone will be added to Apple’s unlocked phones list. It means that even if you upgrade your iOS, your phone will remain unlocked. To do that, you will need the IMEI code, which is unique for every phone. Generally it can be found by dialing *#06# on your iPhone.
  • Once your phone has been unlocked, you will have to activate it. You can now insert the SIM card of the new carrier. You might have to jailbreak in certain cases. Activate your iPhone over Wi-Fi or connecting to iTunes via a PC.



After much anticipation, the popular chatting service WhatsApp rolled out its voice calling services to iOS users. At the same time, an update for iOS was available on the Apple store which lets you call people on your whatsApp list regardless of where they live. But then again, the WhatsApp calling for iPhones has had its moments of doubts and many users have not been able to access this feature just yet. If WhatsApp is to be believed, the service will roll out slowly over the next few weeks.

But this isn’t the only major update for iOS. There is another update that lets WhatsApp play nicely with iOS 8 allowing you to share photos, videos and links using the share button. But this doesn’t seem to take the spotlight away from the calling feature. The WhatsApp voice calling (VoIP) on iPhone is the big thing and can be accessed without much hassle.


How to enable VoIP?

Many messaging apps are trying to set the standards of instant messaging and calling but WhatsApp takes the lead for sure. Now that it has entered the voice calling arena, Android users were the first to experience it followed by iPhone users. Here is how to enable WhatsApp calling for iPhones:

  • There is call button on iOS app in the app store which wasn’t activated until recently. You need to have installed WhatsApp beta on your device which is actually a piece of cake.
  • Firstly, your iPhone needs to be jailbroken. iPhones running on iOS 8.2 beta 2 are jailbrekable using Taig. If you happen to be using the older version or even the latest iOS 8.2, you will find yourself out of luck. You need to jailbreak it first to make calls.
  • Once this has been achieved, download the latest beta release of WhatsApp from Cydia.
  • Now ask a friend who already has the feature installed to give you a call. As soon he or she gives you a call, the feature will be activated.

Once you have received a call from a certain user, your whatsApp calling feature should have been activated.

However, another version of WhatsApp for iPhone is available on app store which has an inbuilt support for voice calling. You just need somebody to call you to activate it. Though this version is not available to all the users.

Release Apple IWatch

The Release of Apple Watch

The iWatch entered the market with a big bang last September and until now some crucial details of the Apple Watch were still under wraps. This smartwatch line, according to Apple, is their most personal device yet with a single aim to make technology accessible to everyone. Apple already had made its debut in the world of wearable technology with its iPod Nano and wristbands but this smartwatch is a gamechanger. The Apple iWatch can run its own apps, connect with your iPhone while being a fashionable watch. Here is all you need to know about the Apple Watch.

Release and Shipping

Now that Apple has revealed all regarding its iWatch which was introduced last September, it is of no doubt that it will become world’s most popular smartwatch. The Apple iWatch will soon be released globally and pre-orders begin from 10th April while shipping starts from April 24th. Depending on the style, the watch will cost anywhere from $349 to $10,000.


The Collection

In terms of variety, the iWatch is truly unique and offers a lot of buyer options. In order to define and clarify available choice, Apple has come up with three distinct collections: he Apple Watch Sport, the Apple Watch and the Apple Watch Edition. All of them come in 38mm and 42mm rectangular case sizing but differ in terms of finishes and band options.

Features and Battery Life

The iWatch truly supplements the iPhone with a lot of unique features and dares to go beyond with the availability of sensors that are absent in Apple’s tablets and smartphones. Apart from telling you time (it is a smartwatch after all), the iWatch has taptic engines that provide physical cues and messages, notifications, motion sensor for tracking activity, heart rate sensor, built-in Bluetooth support and a digital crown. Thanks to the device’s microphone and speaker, you can take calls or reject them or perform tasks basically connected to your Smartphone.

The battery can run up to 18 hours for regular use but Apple is contentedly calling it an “All-day battery”. Though it doesn’t exactly sound great, and count out sleep tracking. It takes one to know whether it will turn out to be optimistic or conservative.
