iPhone antivirus options – Are they even necessary?

While most people have heard the that Mac computers are almost entirely of immune to viruses of any kind (while understanding that there isn’t anything technological that is immune to attacks from malicious hackers), most people readily assume that this same fantastic feature is true of all Apple products. And though it is almost impossible to get an iPhone virus (unless you decide to jailbreak your phone and accept applications that are not allowed through the iTunes application marketplace), you still need to know your options in the first place.

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.

The first iPad Mini was a success; the critics loved it and so did the customers. Widely regarded as the little brother of the iPad 4, it came with a lower computing power than the latter, and without a retina display, but at a much better price. At the time of its launch, it was an affordable choice for those who wanted a tablet but weren’t willing to pay the high price of the iPad 4.

iPad Mini 2 is probably going to be released this fall. Apple has just showcased its new operating system, iOS 7, and said it will be available in the fall, and the company is known to release new operating systems with new products.

Owning an iPad brings numerous benefits, most important of which is system security. Because the iPad uses the legendary iOS operating system, it is considered to be one of the safest tablet devices when it comes to avoiding viruses and malware. There has never been a confirmed virus that was able to penetrate through the built-in security systems in the iOS platform, although there have some a few malware scares in recent years.

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.
