Hey guys, Today I’m going to be showing you how to turn off iMessage on iPhone. iMessage, is a messaging system under iOS5 or later that announced by Apple in June 2011. It allows users to send texts, documents, photos, videos, contact information, and group messages over a Wi-Fi, 3G / LTE connection to other iOS or OS X users, in this way bringing an alternative way to standard SMS/MMS messaging for all users with devices running iOS 5 or later. So what you’ve got to do is go into your settings -> messages, and just simply turn the iMessage off. And it is officially off. So if we find someone in your messages who has iMessage, we can test if it works or not. Try to write something into the box and tap the send button, you will see a pop-up says “Cannot send message”. We have to turn it back on to send an iMessage again. Okay, so you’re gonna go back into your settings again and turn it on. It will ask for your Apple ID.

The iPhone has been one of the bestselling smartphones of all time thanks to its simple design, excessive functionality and the accompanying App Store where millions of distinct applications can be downloaded or purchased. The history and development of the iPhone dates back to 2004 when the Apple design team started work on the smartphone that would truly cement Apple as a global company and smartphone competitor.

Early Developments

In 2004 Apple decided to develop a smartphone to compete with the many other phones currently on the market that were offering video, photo ability and a touch-screen interface. Apple assembled a team of over 1000 employees to work on a top-secret project named “Project Purple.” Steve Jobs, the late CEO of Apple wanted to shift the focus away from the development of a tablet device and towards the development of a smartphone. Apple worked closely with AT&T Mobility (then Cingular Wireless) to design a phone that could be used on their network. The design and development phase took 30 months and cost an estimated $150 million.

Apple had previous attempts at developing a successful smartphone, although most of these attempts were chalked up as failures because the phone never caught on or wasn’t a commercial success. Instead of using traditional design features AT&T gave Apple the liberty to design a phone from the ground up using software and hardware developed by Apple. In exchange AT&T was to be the sole carrier for the Apple iPhone for at least four years after the first iPhone was launched.

The iPad has consistently been one of the best-selling tablets on the market since its release in 2010. Its popularity stems from the plethora of apps, both free and paid that are available in the app store, the official store run by Apple that sells all the apps available for the many different Apple devices. Reading magazines on your iPad is now possible thanks to the many digitalized magazine offerings available in the app store.

History of Digital Magazines

Prior to the advent of the iPad in 2010, the idea of digitalized magazines floated around quite a bit but never materialized fully. eBooks were already beginning to become popular prior to the advent of the iPad, although after the iPad was released eBook sales and “iBook” sales increased greatly. Digital magazines became popular after the iPad was released because of the way the app store allowed magazine editors and publishers to offer their magazines in a digital format. Today the app store has many different magazine titles available and a number of dedicated apps for reading and viewing digital magazines on the iPad.

The iPhone 5 has been touted as having one of the highest quality cameras for taking photos of any smartphone on the market. So What is HDR on iPhone 5? The iPhone 5 makes use of exclusive HDR (high dynamic range) technology to produce images that are deeper, richer and clearer than any photos we’ve seen from a smartphone before. The HDR technology included with the iPhone 5 allows the camera to snap multiple photos in quick succession and then combine them together to produce an image that is the best possible quality.

Close up Portraits

HDR technology excels when taking pictures of objects at close range. The high dynamic range setting will snap multiple photos in extremely quick succession. It usually takes three photos of the same object and then quickly extracts the best parts from each image and combines them into a new image that is deeper, richer and has more saturated colors than a regular photo. HDR is best for outdoor portraits where the subject and background have distinct and harsh lighting differences
