The iPhone is one of the most clever devices out there, but not everyone has the time to read its manual from the first to the last page. Here are some of the lesser-known features explained in the manual.

  • Lock the Exposure and Focus of the Camera

The iPhone autofocus is rather fickle when there’s a lot of movement in the foreground; the focus fluctuates and so does the exposure, and the result is partially blurry photos. The good thing is that you can lock the autofocus to one spot only. While using the camera, find the spot you want to lock focus on, touch it and then hold your finger on it until the AE/AF Lock appears on the screen. The exposure and focus will stay locked until you tap the screen again.

One of the biggest issues that people are going to find when they go to purchase their new iPad or iPhone is the fact that the price for bigger hard drives and more storage jumps up dramatically at every single level. The entry-level iPad gives you just enough storage to be usable for most people, but if you’re really looking to put a lot of content, movies, or games onto your new iPad you’ll have to move up into the 32 gig, 64 gig, and even higher options – price points that become ridiculously prohibitive the higher you get. Of course, the alternative is to add an external hard drive to the mix – something that is nowhere near as simple or straightforward as you may have been led to believe.

Using an Xbox controller can fix this problem as you will have precise control using the analog stick controls, making it much easier and more fun to play your favorite games.

These toys typically use remote control technology which is controlled from your device to power the toy and operate it within specifications.

Toys that are designed specifically to be used with the iPad and iPhone were developed and marketed shortly after the power of these devices was discovered by toy manufacturers. The first toy that was developed specifically to be used in conjunction with the iPad is hard to determine, as there were numerous toys released within a short time period of each other.

Out of users who are new to their iPhone have begun to see a TTY simple pop-up in the status bar in specific areas, and aren’t quite sure of what exactly is going on with their new phone.

Choosing the best iPhone and iPad Quadcopter

Thanks to the two wars that we have been fighting for a bit longer than a decade we’ve been exposed to a ridiculous amount of truly incredible technologies that many of us simply were unaware of. And while most of these have not captured the public’s attention in any real way, the fact of the matter is that the drones we’ve been using have become front and center of the war on terror.
And regardless of which side of the fence you land on when it comes to the use of drones, most of us feel a little excitement at the opportunity to control our very own miniature drones – even if they are nowhere near as capable or as armed as the military options out there today.

We are answering maybe the popular question in this year, what is iCloud? iCloud is the largest and most used cloud computing service available. It was launched by Apple in October of 2011 and it allows users to store files, music and iOS applications on secure cloud servers so they can be accessed and retrieved later. The service also allows all data including email, app settings and preferences, calendars, bookmarks, notes and other things to be automatically synced between all Apple and Windows devices as long as there is an internet connection.

When first iCloud Started

Originally launched as iTools way back in 2000, iCloud started as out as a way for Mac users to organize their contacts, notes and calendars in an easy to use interface. The program later relaunched as .Mac in 2002 and became MobileMe in 2008. MobileMe is the direct predecessor to iCloud and it offered many of the same services that iCloud currently offers. iCloud was launched on October 12th, 2011. It offers many services and features that are similar to the previous brand of MobileMe.
The original idea behind iCloud was to offer users a safe, convenient and easy way to store and access all of their information from one location. Because the servers are located on the internet the personal information can be accessed anywhere with just a password from any device. The purpose of iCloud was to allow people access to their information quickly and easily, and to be able to sync all their information into one location.

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.
