Every iPhone ever released compared in speed test [video]

We’ve done our own versions of speed tests here on TiP on a handful of occasions. But, we’ve never been bold enough to lineup the entire history of iPhones together, in one video, comparing speed for everything from powering down, powering back up again and loading apps. Some of the results were fairly surprising. But, others not so much. Check out the video (above) and let us know what surprised you most.

Trade-in rush to sell iPhone 5, 4S and 4

The Trade-in rush has started to sell iPhone 5, 4S and 4 after the Apple event invitation landed yesterday. The 2013 iPhone event is planned for September 10, and while the invites didn’t reveal any product details they did hint at something bright with a number of colors being shown that could signal the incoming color choice.

Trade-in-rush-to-sell-iPhoneApple iPhones can drop with their trade-in price the closer we get to event day, and this is due to a flood of handsets being traded in that push down the exchange value. Now that we are just days away from the next event it seems like the best deals won’t be around for long.

The real problem comes with wanting to upgrade to an Apple iPhone 5S or 5C from an iPhone 5, 4S or 4 but not knowing the finer specs and features until event day.

This decision is easier for an iPhone 4 owner thanks to that smartphone being a few years old now, but for iPhone 5 and even 4S owners it might not be an easy choice right now.

o2-recycle-sell-your-iphoneSell an iPhone 5, 4S or 4 in the UK – one of the best places to sell an iPhone in the UK is with O2 Recycle. It is a simple process that involves checking out how much your handset is worth, then they will send you an envelope that you send your iPhone back in. We have done this a few times and you get your money pretty quick.

GameStop also offers a program to sell consumer electronics for cash, so they might also be worth checking before making a choice to see who offers the best price.

Would you trade-in or sell your iPhone 5, 4S or 4 without knowing the exact iPhone 5S/5C details? The Apple event invitations have been sent and we have 6 days until almost everything is known about the 7th generation iPhone, so the issue is whether to sell now or wait and find out more.

iPhone 5 iOS 7 Beta Update Review

Apple revealed the new iOS 7 recently and it comes with a clean look and new styling. Thanks to the combination of transparency and the new features, iOS 7 will work well. If you are a fan you may wish to check out the iOS 7 beta visual review videos online on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5.

The first of these videos comes by way of iCrackUriDevice and it provides fans with a look at the many features on iOS 7 beta 1 on the Apple iPhone 4S. The reviewer said that he did not want to put it on his Apple iPhone 5 as he did not want it to go past iOS 6.1.2.

In the first of the videos he talks about features such as the redesign, improvements made to Siri, the interface, which has a 3D look and a great deal more. At the moment only developers are able to get their hands on the OS and from what we have heard it is not easy installing the beta version, of course this could be down to the fact that there are millions trying to install the beta at the same time.

The second video shows DangleKingPC talking about the features of iOS 7 installed on the Apple iPhone 5, however he does seem to dismiss a lot of things by saying that it would take too long to talk about them. His gives a hands-on review of iOS 7 beta 1 and shows off some things that Apple introduced.

A we do not want to spoil things for you we are not going to say too much about the videos. However just yesterday we did talk about some of the new features coming to iOS 7. Parents who have children will love the age range features in the App Store as it will offer them peace of mind that the kids are not installing something they would not want them too.

We did ask whether Air Drop was better than S Bean and we also talked about the Safari tabs along with how the transparent UI seems to add depth.

At the moment iOS 7 is only available to developers, however the release for the public will be coming out in the fall. Check out the notes about the iOS 7 beta release and watch the videos. What are your thoughts about iOS 7 so far?


iPhone 5 review

The Apple iPhone 5 is thinner, lighter and faster than its predecessors. But not necessarily its competitors. We took a closer look at T3 HQ…

Update: If you’re considering a new iPhone 5, you might want to check out our latest iPhone 5s rumours before taking the plunge. If you already have splashed the cash, then you’ll be wanting some of the best iPhone 5 apps to download, and quite possible an iPhone 5 case to keep that new smartphone safe. We’ve also updated our review to include how the the phone performs on EE’s 4G LTE network. Scroll down to page 3 for our thoughts on 4G…

The iPhone 5 was the most anticipated Apple handset launch since the iPhone 4. The 4S offered only an incremental, albeit antenna-fixing, upgrade, and the fifth-gen iPhone arrives just as many 4 users’ 24-month contract comes up for renewal.

However, in that time we’ve seen a seismic shift, with competing smartphones offering quality and desirability to match and even surpass the iPhone.

With the big boys tempting users away from iOS with the lure of a slick Android experience as found on the HTC One X and the Sony Xperia T or much-improved Windows Phone interface – step forward the Nokia Lumia 920 – it’s crunch time (sorry) for Cook and co.

But wait a goddamn minute. Statistics don’t lie (usually) and, just as we were putting pen to paper, Apple announced that pre-orders for the iPhone 5 hit two million in 24 hours, spanking its previous record of one million in a day for the iPhone 4 and ensuring that many won’t see their new precious until October.

So, with it clearly hooking the gagging mouths of many, how does it perform as ‘the latest iPhone’ and, crucially, how does it match up against the superphone stars of today?

iPhone 5: Build

Let’s start with the chassis because, let’s face it, that’s the only distinct visible change to differentiate it from its two previous family members. Grasp the frame in your hand and the first thing you’ll notice is the weight; it’s the lightest iPhone ever.

By a long way. At 112g, it’s 20% daintier than the iPhone 4S, 16% less butch than the Samsung Galaxy S3 and 14% lighter than the HTC One X. Reducing the SIM to weency, or ‘nano’, size has helped, minutely, as has making the shell out of anodised aluminium.

The brace of glass strips adorning the top and bottom of the rear give both the black/slate and white/silver models a premium feel but are actually employed to allow an uninterrupted phone signal. No-one wants another antennagate.

Watch: iPhone 5 unboxing

Despite Keynote claims, the 7.6mm-deep iPhone 5 isn’t the thinnest smartphone in the world – the Huawei Ascend P1 S, Oppo Finder and ZTE Athena are all sub 7mm – but when the depth is combined with the weight, it feels sufficiently waif-like in the hand.

And we’re not convinced that’s for the good. Of course we want our mobile tech to be light and lithe, but what we’ve loved about previous iGenerations is the weighty, industrial feel, the security of feeling something solid in your pocket (no jokes) and knowing that, if it takes a knock, it’s not going to shatter into a billion plastic pieces.

Don’t get us wrong, it’s a miracle how Apple has shed so much excess podge and millions of people will love the lightweight design, but we preferred the more robust, weapon-like nature of the 4S. A case of Marmite-y opinion, perhaps.

iPhone 5: Features

The four-inch screen, which we’ll come onto in detail shortly, is Apple’s belated nod to the industry trend for bigger displays, and means the iPhone 5 now stands a proud 123.8mm tall – width remains the same at 58.6mm.

The extra screen real-estate is welcome, though smaller-handed iPhone users might struggle to reach the standby button with a forefinger while holding it in a natural position. They might even have to stretch for the extra top row of apps. Just hold it a different way, perhaps.

Because various components have been reduced in size, the headphone socket has been moved to the bottom of the device, which comes with its pros and cons. On the plus side, your phone usually goes in your pocket nose first, which means the headphone cable has a clear run out to your ears.

On the downside, the jutting jack interferes with your hand when holding it ‘upright’. Not all apps will use the gyroscope to flip the screen 180-degrees, either, so you’ll have to get used to that.

The bottom-hugging stereo speakers have also been given a boost, the better to annoy old people on the bus as you rattle out Skream’s latest. Do your own iPhone 4S to iPhone 5 sound comparison and you’ll realise the sound is unquestionably fuller and deeper.

Then there’s the Lightening connector. In our testing, we didn’t find it any quicker for transferring content over a cable but we do prefer the new connector in terms of it being a) smaller and b) reversible.

At the time of writing, the Lightening-to-30-pin adapter wasn’t available – it sure ain’t in the box, and it’ll cost £25 on release – so we haven’t experienced how it will cope with existing docks and accessories but it’s safe to say, things could look ugly.

There are add-ons that simply won’t work with it, either – TomTom’s iPhone car kit, for example. It’s made us realise how many USB-to-30-pin cables we’ve amassed over the years and how, now, they’re all redundant, apart from servicing the new iPad and nostalgic clear outs.


New iPhone may have fingerprint scanner


A fingerprint scanner could be the key ingredient in Apple’s upcoming iPhone, potentially providing a major security enhancement.

A string of code from a developer release of Apple’s upcoming mobile operating system iOS7 hints at “a fingerprint that changes colour during the setup process.”

When iOS7 beta 4 was released this week, software developer Hamza Sood discovered a folder within the software called “BiometricKitUI”. This is likely to be the user interface for a fingerprint scanner set to launch with Apple’s next-generation smartphone, which is widely expected to be released in September as the iPhone 5S.

Apple acquired AuthenTec, a firm that specialises in fingerprint-scanning technology, for US$356 million in July last year, fuelling speculation of finger-scanning technology at the time.

Just two weeks ago, Apple filed a patent for a fingerprint sensor embedded within the touchscreen display, but the newly-discovered description of the interface notes that a user will be able to swipe the fingerprint sensor on the iPhone’s home button.

Whether the fingerprint scanner is embedded within the touchscreen or the home button, it would likely offer enhanced security for locking and unlocking the device, as well as the possible authentication of payments for mobile payment systems. Apple has so far resisted including near-field communications (NFC) chips on its devices. NFC provides an alternative means for authenticated mobile payment.

There is also the potential to perform different functions on the phone – such as call different contacts or launch different apps – using different fingers.

An unnamed source familiar with the plans told 9to5 Mac that the user interface has been completed and focuses on unlocking the phone.

Fingerprint scanners have been used in consumer technology devices before, though not widely and with limited success. Motorola’s Atrix 4G featured a fingerprint sensor in 2011, but many complained at the time that it failed to recognise their fingerprint. It also exists on numerous Windows laptops.

If the speculation turns out to be true, the 5S will be the first ‘S’ model iPhone to feature a major hardware update. Previous ‘S’ models have featured minor tweaks to internal hardware such as improvements to battery life and processor speed in the 3GS, as well as updates to software such as Siri in the 4S.

n addition to fingerprint scanners in the iPhone 5S, Apple may also introduce a budget model iPhone made out of plastic instead of aluminium and glass. An image circulating the web this week shows retail boxes for the device with “iPhone 5C” written on the side, while self-proclaimed Apple leaker Sonny Dickson of Victoria released photos purporting to be the plastic shells of the cheaper iPhone earlier this month.

An unnamed source told Business Insider that the plastic model would be called the 5C, with C standing for colour, suggesting the device will come in multiple colours. There are also already iPhone 5C covers listed for sale on Amazo from California company Elago.

Apple chief executive Tim Cook said last week at the company’s earnings report that Apple is working on new “amazing products” that would be introduced in the second half of 2013 and throughout 2014.


iPhone 5 users should only use genuine chargers says Apple


iPhone 5 owners have been told to use only genuine Apple chargers following a spate of electrocutions in China

Apple has issued a warning to iPhone 5, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S users: use a genuine charger or risk electrocution.

Apple said on its Chinese site, ‘Apple always put the user’s safety first, so all of our products are subject to stringent safety and reliability testing, and designed to meet government safety standards around the world, including for the iPhone and iPad USB power adapter.’

The news comes after two people in China were electrocuted by their iPhones while charging.
The iPhone 4 has a man in a coma after he was electrocuted by his iDevice.

The 30-year old was been in a coma for more than 10 days, although we last heard he was breathing unassisted and is on the road to recovery. He had undergone hyperbaric oxygen treatment to try and prevent any brain damage, according to the Beijing Evening News.

Wu Jiantong apparently screamed ‘I’m being electrocuted’ after plugging his iPhone 4 into a wall charger. Wu’s sister then unplugged the device from the power supply from which she received a minor electric shock.

Humidity in Wu’s apartment is said to be the reason the iPhone behaved in such a way, rather than a fault with the device in question.

Earlier this week, a Chinese woman was killed by receiving an electric shock from her iPhone 5. She reportedly answered the smartphone while it was charging.

Ma Ailun, a 23-year-old former flight attendant from China’s Xinjiang region was electrocuted last Thursday when she took a call on the Apple device just after getting out of the bath.

iPhone ‘explodes’ on a plane

If reports of the incident are accurate it could suggest that there was a fault with either the charging unit or its connection cable. According to, the iPhone 5 was purchased from an official Apple store last December and was being charged using the original charger.

Exploding iPhone caught on video in Finland

Apple has refused to comment on specific details of the death but said it will cooperate with authorities in any investigations.

‘We are deeply saddened to hear of this tragic incident and offer our deepest condolences to the Ma family. We will fully investigate and cooperate with authorities in this matter,’ Apple said in a statement released today.

Possible reasons given for the fatal malfunction include that of Xingiang’s extreme temperatures during the summer months. The heat could potentially cause overloads and electrical insulation failures, although whether it was a contributing factor in this incident is as yet unknown.

Another theory suggests that a fault with the charging unit could have meant that it was unearthed, sending a potentially lethal current of 200mA through the victim.

Apple is said to be investigating both these incidents, plus another episode where an iPhone 4 exploded while a man was sleeping and set fire to his bed.
