I use FaceBreak and it works fine. You can find it on Cydia for a few bucks but it's worth it if you use FaceTime often

I have a feeling the satin-esque backplate may be used as some sort of induction charger. Apple finally abandons the 30 pin charger only to make it 3/4 smaller? Doubt it. There's a bigger reason behind ditching the sexy glass backpanel for this ugly patch. I really hope they drop the inch of glass at the top and bottom and make it all one solid material. Could the port on the bottom where the power was located be a mini-hdmi port to upload photos etc?

I really don't think Apple would sacrifice sex appeal for functionality but post-Jobs who knows? I just know I've got a free upgrade and can't wait to see what they will be dropping this August.

my first thoughts when i saw the back were that it looked like the middle area was rubberish for grip (?) and potentially wraps around the sides too (hard to tell from the pics), but everyone is talking about it being straight aluminum. idk

i like your thoughts on the "drop and charge" function and i think that would be a great game changer. youre right about sex appeal vs functionality though. the back is not very cool looking, but again this is all just rumor, speculation, and probably even prototype.

NEWS:
- WWDC is June 11th ... hopefully we'll get to see some iPhone stuff, like iOS6 previews perhaps.
- Facebook reportedly being integrated into iOS6
- iOS 6 to have a new silver look (pics below)
- Will the 3D maps in iOS 6 look like this? (pics below)

Headphone jack on the bottom, das dat shit I don't like
Jun 06, 2012 @ 10:43
i dont get all the hate for the headphone jack on the bottom... for me, i like it.

for instance, when the headphones are in and you have to put your phone in your pocket it's a lot easier and more convenient to put it in upside down with the screen against your thigh. this way you can go straight from holding it, to in your pocket, and when you wanna take it out, you just reach in and its already right side up when you take it out of your pocket. and this way the wires are out of the way and coming out of your pocket perfectly.

even if it's not going in your pocket, the wires will naturally be out of the way if the headphone jack is on the bottom, instead of having to drape the wires over top and behind your phone and hand.

3D Maps!?! Finally. I can't wait to see the apps that would use that 3D mapping technology. I really really hope they incorporate it this go around. Silver ios6 UI is cool because I'm assuming the width of the device will limit any of that silver trim around the sides that they use in the current model. Probably using silver to add contrast to the device so it's not solid black looking. Really hoping for some details regarding the new iPhone at WWDC but from what I've seen it will mostly be about ios6, mountain lion, and a macbook pro redesign. I'm hoping for info on an ipad mini and iphone 5 reveal however from what I've read Foxconn (iPhone manufacturing company) stated that it's unlikely as they're still in the early stages. If they give details about the iPhone 5 at WWDC I think they'll probably release it in mid August, if not mid to late September.

I think all the talk about how lame the relocation of the headphone port is due to peoples perception of change more than anything. If they had a good thing going why change it? Personally its relocation doesn't bother me in the least.

Whats better andriod or iOS?

I'm hoping that 8MP camera I'm seeing on that stat sheet is wrong.
They should really up that to at least 10-12.

I don't like the holes for the speakers. It looks like they could get lint and sand in them. The current recessed speaker ports covered in wire mesh are superb. Oh well.

Agreed, that being said mobile camera technology isn't that far ahead yet. They could do it but I assume it'd be really clunky and large.

Personal preference really. Android offers alot of customization options off the bat but it's unstable. iOS is extremely stable but rather confined unless jailbroken. I've owned 3 different android phones and 2 different iOS devices and personally prefer iOS for its stability and compatibility with apps.

ios 6 discussion alreadyyyyy
Jun 27, 2012 @ 11:46
I think all apple products are very good and iPhone is one of the best product in this worlds.An iPhone can function as a video camera (video recording was not a standard feature until the iPhone 3GS was released), a camera phone, a portable media player, and an Internet client with email and web browsing capabilities, can send texts and receive visual voicemail, and has both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity. The user interface is built around the device's multi-touch screen, including a virtual keyboard rather than a physical one.
The touchscreen on all models is a 9 cm (3.5 in) liquid crystal display with scratch-resistant glass. The capacitive touchscreen is designed for a bare finger, or multiple fingers for multi-touch sensing. The screens on the first three generations have a resolution of 320 × 480 (HVGA) at 163 ppi, while those on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S have a resolution of 640 × 960 at 326 ppi.

Has anyone changed the front screen on an iPhone 4? I just shattered mine and was wondering how hard it is to replace it

It's quite simple and only like 30 bucks on Amazon to get the replacement screen and tool.

FYI: Google Chrome was released for iOS


I'm a Firefox guy, but i might download Chrome for iOS and check it out cause safari is a pretty basic mobile browser. i dont know why apple hasnt improved upon iOS Safari too much. i hope Chrome's presence will atleast nudge apple to do so

guys, if my iphone 4 is still in warranty, would i be getting a refurbished replacement, or a brandy new one? one of my speakers just doesnt work anymore.

Android. And if you're planning to get one, get the Nexus.

OS 4.1 Jelly Bean is about to be released in 2-3 weeks and it blows
IOS.

Any good fisheye lens for the iPhone you guys recommend?
Aug 05, 2012 @ 20:16
i made a stupid decision. my dad gave me his iphone 4 after he got a new iphone, so on the top left of the iphone that he gave me, it said said no sim, so its just pretty much an itouch. stupid me restored the iphone so all his data/info would be gone cause i was thinking it would have the same effect as if i did it to an itouch. end result is im stuck in the an activation failed page. i looked at websites that said jailbreak might activate it or just go to the carrier and get a unactivated sim card, does anyone else know any other way though?

i can just sell it though cause i saw same conditions on ebay go for 200+

Funny how all these leaks on the iPhone 5 are coming from China. Take a hint people, they're the worlds leader in counterfeit. Youre fools if you honestly think those housing videos on YouTube are real.
