iPad Mini And Redesigned iPad With Lightening Connector Releasing Tomorrow - Geeky Apple - The new iPad 3, iPhone iOS6 Jailbreaking and Unlocking Guides

iPad Mini And Redesigned iPad With Lightening Connector Releasing Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the big day when Apple is going to announce a redesigned iPad mini and as the name suggests,, this iPad will be of a smaller size with 7.85 inch diagonally. The reason for introducing a 7 inch iPad is to compete with Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire. It is quite obvious that the new iPad mini will feature a lightening connector like that of iPhone 5.

The concept of a 7 inch iPad was earlier coined while Steve Jobs was still alive but he wouldn't accept it considering it as a waste because of the smaller screen size and instead proposed 10 inch screen as a minimum requirement. The ideology behind the 7 inch iPad came from Apple's senior vice president, Eddy Cue who strongly believes that there is a market in 7 inch screen devices and hence Apple should have a smaller iPad too.

It is a known fact that Apple gives a lot of thinking before releasing a product and the reason behind having a 7.85 inch iPad instead of 7 inch is because this will help the developers an easy way to upgrade their apps. With a 7.85 inch screen, the iPad mini can still run all the applications that run on iPad and iPhone. The only work that developers will have to upgrade their apps would be to adjust the corners to match the iPad mini screen.

Internally, the iPad mini is believed to be built using the same components as last year's iPad 2. That means the same CPU (A5), same RAM (512 MB) and same GPU. It also means the screen is not expected to be a "Retina" display. Instead, it will be same 1024x768 resolution as the iPad 2 -- though at a higher pixel density due to the smaller screen. - Macrumors

Apple iPad Mini Rumors - Apple Asking Suppliers To Gear Up For Mass Production ~ Geeky Apple - The new iPad 3, iPhone iOS6 Jailbreaking and Unlocking Guides

Apple iPad Mini Rumors - Apple Asking Suppliers To Gear Up For Mass Production ~ Geeky Apple - The new iPad 3, iPhone iOS6 Jailbreaking and Unlocking Guides | Apple News - From competitors to owners | Scoop.it
Apple's iPad mini to come in october Apple asks suppliers to be ready for mass production of mini iPads.

 

Earlier we shared that Apple is planning to launch a 7.85 inch iPad mini that will be competing with Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire. Bloomberg has also confirmed that Apple is indeed going to launch a new iPad which would be slightly smaller that the current iPad which is 9.7 inch diagonally. Apple is apparently going to launch the new iPad mini with a smaller screen size and will be using IGZO display which give high brightness in a thinner display.  The rumors are mounting up as the Wall street journal reported that Apple is telling its suppliers to be prepared for mass production that will supply Apple iPad mini's components. Apple's component suppliers for iPad mini are LG Display Co. and AU Optronics Co. The two companies are likely to be the suppliers for the new iPad mini that we might see in October this year. It has also been rumored that the new iPad mini would be priced in between $199 - $299 that will be directly aiming at Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle. Apple's iPad has already conquered the tablet market globally and with iPad mini as an analyst said, would bring back Amazon's Kindle and Google's Nexus 7 to the point that they might expunge out just as in the case of iPad 2 and iPad 3. Apple's decision to go head on with Google seems like the differences between the two companies is filling in with competitive advantage over another.

iPad Mini Released - Apple Announces 7.8 Inch iPad Mini

 

 

If you have followed our recent posts, we were discussing about today's event where Apple had plans to announce new iPad. We'll, it is indeed true and here is the big news, Apple has just announced new iPad Mini with a smaller screen which is quite obvious to Eddy Cue's statement that there exists a 7 inch tablet market and so Apple needs to have product of their own right into that market. The new iPad mini has the same display when talking about pixels so the developers need not make new apps to support iPad mini. In Fact  they wouldn't even have to update their existing apps, the apps will just work as if they were designed for iPad mini. 


Here's an overview of the new features of iPad Mini:

Its 7.2 mm thin and that makes it 23% thinner than the iPad and as Phil says, it is as thin as a pencil. The new iPad mini is 53% lighter than the original iPad and is as lighter as a note pad. iPad mini comes in both white as well as black color. Compared with Nexus 7, iPad mini is a clear winner ( we'll discuss about this later) There are over 275,000 apps that are ready and designed specifically for the iPad and since iPad mini shares the same display resolution, these apps work for iPad mini too. The new iPad mini features a dual core A5 chip It has an improved Facetime camera with an amazing 5 mp rear camera. iPad mini is designed to work on LTE networks New improved reversible lightening connector. All these features, yet the iPad mini provides a stunning 10 hours of battery backup. Stylish smart covers in various colors. The new iPad mini will start from a price range of $329

Apple Wins Against Motorola As Judge Orders Further Investigation ~ Geeky Apple - The new iPad 3, iPhone iOS6 Jailbreaking and Unlocking Guides

Apple Wins Against Motorola As Judge Orders Further Investigation ~ Geeky Apple - The new iPad 3, iPhone iOS6 Jailbreaking and Unlocking Guides | Apple News - From competitors to owners | Scoop.it
Apple vs motorola patents lawsuit Apple wins over Motorola in patent copyright issue Samsung Apple Motorola Siri court hearing ban on imports iPhone...

 

This week has been lucky for Apple as it seems pretty clear that Apple's win over Samsung has been a tough one. Apple has recently won the lawsuit against Samsung for infringing the intellectual property of the company by illicitly using its patents. The trail ended with Samsung being ordered to pay Apple over 1.05 Billion in compensation for copying Apple's patented designs of iPhone and iPad.   Recently Google has filed a lawsuit that Apple has violated several patents of Motorola in making the voice assistant Siri which happens to be the aggressive marketing source for Apple. If the allegations are proved to be true, the results could be devastating for Apple as it could lead in the permanent ban of iPhone in the United States. Further more, Apple would have to pay heavy compensation to Motorola (Now Google) for the losses and the lawsuit charges. 

 

Call it a lucky day for Apple as the judge has ordered further investigation in the issue instead of imposing immediate ban on the sales of iPhone. This, however might infuriate Google with the ball landing in the wrong court. The ITC says that upon an initial determination, Apple may have infringed on a non-standard essential patent, which could potentially lead to an import ban. In particular, the said patent is for the “sensor controlled user interface for portable communication device.”


The ITC, however, has decided to remand further action and investigation on the matter to Administrative Law Judge Thomas B. Pender, reports FOSS Patents.

Apple was cleared with respect to three of Motorola’s patents-in-suit, including the aforementioned standard-essential one. But with respect to U.S. Patent No. 6,246,862 on a “sensor controlled user interface for portable communication device”, a non-standard-essential patent, the investigation was remanded to Administrative Law Judge Thomas B. Pender. The judge had found claim 1 of that patent indefinite and, as a result, not violated. The ITC has reversed his indefiniteness finding. As a result, there could (but need not) be a finding of a violation with respect to this patent, and an import ban.


With Apple's patent war with Samsung just coming to an end, seems like there are others who are more interesting in bringing Apple to the courts of law. If the initial investigations prove that Apple has abruptly copied the Motorola patents then the result would lead to an immediate ban on imports. From now on, its just a wait and watch game for Apple and Motorola.

Last month there have shared a lot of Cydia apps and tweaks that were not just amazing but most of them were even free so you can install them and enjoy tweaking. The most amazing thing about jailbreaking your device is that you can tweak your device as you wish, yes we really mean it! You don't like the song of facebook messenger, simply access the files and replace it with another, or if you don't like the infuriating yahoo messenger sound, simply delete it and add another one. You can even edit the game files to impress your friends by increasing the scrore :) That's some privilege which only users with jailbroken devices can enjoy. With iOS 5, notification center was something new and there have been a lot of tweaks on daily basis that come handy. 
How about music and cydia tweaks related to music ? And how about having a widget that simply allows you to change the tracks and other functionality from the notification center ? We don't have any app like that , do we ? Well, now we do. Jukebox is a new cydia app/tweak that integrates a simple to use music player right into your notification center allowing you to access music no matter where you are.Jukebox goes well with Dashboard X, so you can add a music player widget right on your home screen as a widget. Amazing, isn't it ? There is more, jukebox works well with intelliscreenX and lockinfo too.
Cydia Description
Jukebox is the definitive widget for controlling your music from the notification center. Simply swipe to the left or right to take a peek at the next or previous track, and swipe further to skip to that track. A single tap reveals the control bar, with everything you need to control your music. Swipe to the left or right on the control bar to access the additional controls.  Features Of Jukebox Music Widget   Swipe to the left or right to switch tracks Double-tap to play or pause Toggle shuffle and repeat modes Seek and adjust the volume Easily tweet the current song Quickly access the currently playing app with a tap-and-hold Control virtually any third-party app!

Jukebox is fully compatible with Dashboard X, IntelliscreenX and lock info and also works on all iOS devices running iOS 5.0 or higher.

With Apple there are always rumors before the release of every new product or occurence of any event. This time it is for iPad Mini. It has been rumored that since Google has launched a 7 inch Nexu7 tablet to compete with Amazon's Kindle Fire, its seems pretty reasonable that Apple might launch one too. To gain more control over tablet market, Apple might launch a mini iPad version to attract those consumers who are willing to spend less on a tablet. MyDrivers.com has confirmed that Apple will indeed launch a 7.85 inch iPad later this year with a IGZO Display - Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide that will give a thinner and brighter display. The thinkness of the mini iPad is likely to be of the same thinkness as iPad 2 and the new iPad. Earlier, it was rumored that Apple would be using these IGZO displyas in The New iPad3 but apprently these were not ready by that time. Digitimes also reports that Apple might replac the current iPad display with IGZO but have considered that the news to be unreliable. Don't put your hope on this one until you hear more about it. If at all Apple launches an iPad with smaller display, will it be supporting GSM carrier ? Nothing can be said right now and even if its going to be a GSM iPad then its very likely to be locked on specific carriers like AT&T.

Apple To Make Baidu As Default iOS Search Engine For China ~ Geeky Apple - The new iPad 3, iPhone iOS 5.1 Jailbreaking and Unlocking Guides

Apple to make baidu default iOS search engine Apple to make baidu iPhone search engine iPad search engine Apple Baidu relationship grews stronger China...

 

Bloomberg reports that Apple is about to announce Baidu as default search engine for iOS devices in China. The announcement would be made as early as next week following the fact that Baidu is China's most used web search engine. Over 80% of China population uses Baidu for searching web. The decision to make it as default search engine will have definite reactions on Apple's relationship with Google.
A deal with Baidu, which handles about 80 percent of China’s Internet search queries, fits with a plan by Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook to gain a bigger toehold in the largest mobile-phone market. It also gives users an alternative to Google Inc., which competes with Apple in the market for mobile software and advertising.


The decision of Apple to make Baidu will definitely help both Apple and Baidu in their own means. Apple will benefit from providing users the most used search engine so that they don't need to change the search engine every time they use safari and Baidu will benefit from huge traffic that will directly come from Apple device which account 20% of sales in China.

 

“This is definitely going to help Baidu,” said Joshua Maa, chief executive officer at Madhouse Inc., an advertising company in Shanghai that specializes in marketing on mobile devices. The deal will boost Baidu’s wireless advertising business, he said.
