About Apple Gadgets

What does Apple do? The production of computers (both desktops and laptops) and mobile electronics: players and smartphones. In addition, the company independently produces peripherals and accessories to its own electronics: for example, access points, mice, keyboards, headphones and even monitors. Also, Apple is a software manufacturer for its devices, releasing both operating systems and programs for these operating systems.

When and by whom was Apple founded? Apple as a legal entity was formed on April 1, 1976. The founders of the company were Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ron Wayne. However, Wayne left the founders after 12 days, so the creators of Apple are usually called the two Steve.

Who were the founders of Apple? Both Steve at the time of the idea of ​​creating his own company had a decent working experience in large IT companies. Wozniak worked in Hewlett-Packard, and Jobs - in Atari. If Steve Wozniak was first and foremost a brilliant engineer who was well versed in the technical aspects of building computers, Steve Jobs already in the distant 1970s differed in marketing intuition: he knew what would be interesting to people and how to present them with the goods so that they realized that they could not live without it. The combination of the talents of Jobs and Wozniak and ensured the success of Apple.

Why was Apple chosen for the company? First, Steve Jobs wanted to come up with an original, non-trivial name for the company. Secondly, Wozniak and Wayne could not come up with any other options. Thirdly, the word Apple was chosen because in this case the company would go in telephone directories higher than the arch-rival firm - the company Atari. Fourthly, the apple is associated with Isaac Newton and his craniocerebral trauma, which triggered the great scientific discoveries. This, by the way, hints at the first Apple logo.

Where is Apple based? Offices Apple are located in the heart of the Silicon Valley of the State of California, in the town of Cupertino. The Apple head office address sounds like 1 Infinite Loop.

How did the Apple logo evolve?

The first Apple logo Apple's colorful logo Current Apple logo
For more than thirty years of history, the company has experienced only three rebranding. The first company logo was coined by Ron Wayne. It depicted Isaac Newton, and the logo itself was more like a medieval coat of arms. The second Apple logo appeared a year later, when the company's first computer with color graphics support was released. From the art of Wayne, there was only an apple, full of colors, painted in all colors of the rainbow. Multicolored logo lived until the end of the XX century, and then replaced by a discolored version. It is rumored that Apple is tired of comparing their logo with the rainbow flag, which is used by sex minority. The gray apple is much better suited to the concept of modern design of Apple products - the severity of colors, nothing superfluous + unique style. However, apple Apple is not always gray. On many of the company's products it is black or white.

IPhone Models

iPhone 2G
iPhone 2G - the first model of the apple-phone, which went on sale for the first time by the operator Shmulsky AT & T. Shatter to the brick / iPod-and this version of the phone is a real one. It is impossible, because Apple does not update the software version even with firmware 2.0. It follows from this that when you have a phone with firmware above 2.x, you can call anyway, the modem or iphone will not be blocked. But the minus model - it needs to be activated (jailbroken or simply hacked). As soon as the phone's software is updated, the update and the software for hacking are released immediately.

Warning: do not update immediately after the new firmware is released. Be sure to ask about the possibility of the program for the Jail. But suddenly you are still updated - do not bother, you need to lower the firmware (Make downgrade).

iPhone 3G
iPhone 3G - the second generation of the device. From this model, the division into "Americans" and "Europeans" began. For the reason: phones began to be sold all over the planet, and the legislation and authority in each country are different, and the attitude to sales, respectively, is also different. In order to check the version or firmware of the phone you need to go to the menu in Settings - Basic - About the device - Model or transfer to the page on our website [ Find out what kind of iPhone you have ]

Useful Information: on slang iPhone users, "American" is a blocked handset, and "European" is the one that works with any operator.

For "Europeans" - if you are a European owner, you are lucky. You can easily update to the new firmware without fear that your phone will boot. The maximum that can happen is you'll like just the firmware itself, but for it there will not be a jail program and you will only need to use legal software, but there is always the possibility to roll back to an earlier firmware without problems.

The owners of "Americans" - everything is much more complicated here, Apple did not abandon the outdated model with the release of 3Gs, but it supports it stubbornly. This is what can turn your phone into an iPod in case of firmware upgrade and lack of unlock (jailbreak).

Warning: never press the "Refresh" button in iTunes without specifying the Jail !!! First, be sure that the firmware has already been cracked, and the new version of the modem is unlocked. It often happens that there is already a jail firmware, and there is no unlocking of the modem. It was with version 3.1.2 (modem 05.11.07), but later all the same there was also an unlock, and then it happened again with 3.1.3 (mod 05.12.01) - there is jail, unlock is still not there. With a great deal of confidence, you can be updated to so-called "custom" firmware (custom - custom, customizable). These are the same original firmware from Apple, only the Jail is already sewn into the firmware itself. Often, while there is no unlock of the new version of the modem, custom firmware with an old modem is offered. Everything is very confusing, but always in the comments of the author of the firmware it is indicated whether it is possible to put it on "Americans", proven custom firmware can be found in this topic.

iPhone 3GS
iPhone 3Gs - you "... the fastest phone in the world ..." (as in advertising). This model appeared in the summer of 2009 and immediately jellybriknulas. iPhone 3Gs is also divided into "Americans" and "Europeans".

Warning: Apple did not like that its new trojan was so quickly hacked, and in the fall of 2009, or rather, from 42 weeks of 2009, they started releasing phones with an updated version of the bootloader [ What is iBoot? ]. This led to the fact that the jailbreak procedure is canceled immediately after the phone is rebooted. Here the term "tethered Jail" appeared . The point is that there is a hacking, it works, but before the first reboot, after that the phone needs to be connected to the PC and turned on with the help of the program which made the Jail. It turns out that if you have an "American", 43 or more weeks of release - without a PC you are tortured or you need to clearly monitor the charge and play less with Cydia, and it's better not to play at all.

UPD. With the release of the [ Spirit ] program, the issue of the "tied Jail" is removed.

Warning: 3Gs devices are not allowed to downgrade the firmware version! When I try to feed iTunes with downloaded earlier or custom firmware, it will get on the Internet on the Apple server and check if it can be stitched, will naturally get refused and will not do anything. The whole hitch is in the digital signature of the device, which is checked against the server. But there was found a way out. All known Saurik (the organizer of the alternative software store - Cydia) created a server that replaces Apple's permission for firmware, though not everything is as smooth as we would like. First, you need to keep this very signature on his server. To do this, on the Cydia home page, you need to click the Make my life easier button, please! As soon as possible, in more detail how to [ save the signature (ECID certificate) ]. Now your life has become a little easier. With the release of a new firmware, you, if desired, will be able to return to the previous one. How? Instruction how to [ roll back firmware to 3.1.3. ]

Useful Information: absolutely everyone is advised to keep a digital signature, and the sooner the better. She does not ask for food, but life can really ease even the "European". "Americans" - by no means update to new firmware, before the permission of DevTeam (authors of programs for jail) !!! "Europeans" - to be updated only realized, and realizing that until the Jail comes out, you will have to use only legally acquired software.

iPhone 4
iPhone 4 - the fourth generation Apple Apple. For the first time, for 4 years, the company from California decided to change the design to an unfamiliarity, which caused a lot of reproaches and shortcomings. Despite all the misunderstandings and glitches of the fourth model, on the first day of pre-orders, the phone was sold 10 times faster than the old model, in the amount of 600 thousand copies, which all disputes about the unsuccessful design were dispelled. iPhone 4 was introduced as the "biggest leap" since the first iPhone, and experts have already suggested that this version of the iPhone will become the "gold standard". All this is due to the fact that the new model has more than 100 new features that could not be covered in one presentation.

iPhone 4s
iPhone 4s - On October 4, 2011 at 10 o'clock Pacific time, at the Apple headquarters in Cupertino, the "Let's Talk iPhone" event began, at which the new iPhone 4S model ("S" means Siri) was introduced. Instead of the usual public, Steve Jobs smartphone introduced Phil Schiller, senior vice president of international marketing for Apple. Steve Jobs at this time was in the ward of the clinic in Palo Alto.

The main innovations in the iPhone 4s:

  • Dual-core microprocessor Apple A5 with a clock speed of 1000 MHz (understated programmatically up to 800 MHz)
  • Enhanced 8-megapixel camera with support for Full HD 1080p video recording
  • Virtual Assistant Siri
  • Updated operating system iOS 5 (At the moment, a new version of iOS 5.1.1 has been released)
  • Added support for GLONASS
  • Bluetooth version 4.0

Siri: Voice control appeared two years ago in the iPhone 3GS model. But that Voice Control only recognized the commands that the user should have previously learned. "Voice Assistant" Siri brings the idea to a new level. The point is that Siri recognizes a natural language, that is, ordinary speech. By design, you do not need to think about how to build a phrase so that the machine understands it. In reality, everything is not very smooth. Siri perfectly understands the many phrases associated with managing embedded applications. You can ask her for the weather for the next day or for the weekend, or you can ask if you should take an umbrella with you. To set an alarm, just say to her: "Wake me up at 8 am". Siri knows about the existence of connections between people - for the first time the request "Call my wife" she herself will ask to clarify who is talking about, and remember the answer. [ How to configure SIRI on iPhone 4 >>> ], [ How to configure RUSSIAN SIRI on iPhone 4 >>> ]

Conclusions: iPhone 4S is the best iPhone of all that ever was created. It's true. It would be strange if the new model was worse than the previous model. Compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 4S has three key advantages: significantly increased performance, improved camera and Siri voice assistant. And the last of them for Russian-speaking users does not matter. I would not recommend buying a new smartphone to iPhone 4 owners, wait for iPhone 5, if you have the patience. But users of iPhone 3GS and older from the transition to 4S will be in great delight. For those who simply choose a new smartphone, I will say the following. The iPhone 4S is one of the most powerful flagships, and at the same time the longest living one. And he also has a great camera, compared to the camera, for example, Nokia N9 fans for both sides will fight for a long time in slobbering battles.

iPhone 5

The successor to the iPhone 4S, the new iPhone was introduced on September 12, 2012 in San Francisco, California. In this model, the form factor has changed, but the main features are still similar to the whole line of iPhone. The iPhone 5 became noticeably longer and thinner, Apple decided to return to what it once started and made the back of aluminum, and paired with glass the thickness of the new case is only 7.6 millimeters, which allows the new iPhone 5 to be worn The title of the most delicate gadget in the history of Apple iPhone. The screen at the same time received a larger 4-inch display with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels and a 16: 9 aspect ratio, before that all iPhone had a 4: 3 aspect ratio. Significant reduction in the thickness of the device, of course, suffered a significant reduction in weight - iPhone 5 "lost weight" by as much as 32 grams and now its weight is only 114 grams.

The main innovations in the iPhone 5:

  • Large 4 "display with a resolution of 1136x640 pixels, 16: 9, widescreen

iPhone 5c
iPhone 5c - Every innovation in the iPhone should meet one condition - to improve the impression of its use. Therefore, the colors of the iPhone 5c we thought as carefully as everything else. Even the palette of the main screen and wallpaper is now in harmony with the body. Result: The iPhone has become even more enjoyable and exciting. Such an iPhone you have not seen and tried. Its great advantage is that it is made of plastic. And this makes it possible to produce it in five unique colors. Under the smooth surface of the whole shell, a steel frame is concealed, providing structural integrity. Taking iPhone 5c in hand, you will immediately understand how reliable it is.

Everything can change in the blink of an eye. Choose any of the six cases designed by Apple - the bright and stylish iPhone 5c will be simply irresistible. Covers are made so that the color of the case can be seen through them. It turns out 30 funny combinations - you will be out of what to choose.

Engage on the iPhone all that you like - the speed will be incredible. The A6 processor consume battery power extremely economically. You will be able to enjoy your iPhone all day and not worry about the battery becoming exhausted.

Thanks to advanced features, such as a five-lens lens, the images of the 8-megapixel iSight camera are strikingly sharp. Another great feature is the panoramic mode, allowing you to shoot in high resolution overcrowded football stadiums, the Scottish mountains and the whole orchestra playing under the window in honor of your birthday. On the iPhone 5c you can see the new Camera app, with which you will take pictures more professionally. Take pictures in a square format. Or choose any of the eight filters - they can be used before and after shooting. Set the "Instant" filter to make the group beach photo a little retro. Select "Photochrome" to make the sunset picture even more colorful. And with the filter "Noir" you will get an extremely expressive black and white self-portrait.

When shooting HD-video with a resolution of 1080p new three-dimensional zoom will allow even closer to capture the subject of the survey. And the video stabilization function will smooth out the effect of the shaking camera, if you do not stand still - in particular, it will be very useful for you on the Encyclopaedia.

A higher resolution and an improved ambient light sensor on the rear panel provide increased sensitivity in low light. Sunset on the coast in all its splendor can now be shown to friends in another part of the world. And you can turn off the video and talk only on the FaceTime audio connection - the sound will be even clearer than the broadband audio.

iPhone 5s
iPhone 5s - A7 processor with 64-bit architecture. Fingerprint identification sensor. Improved camera, which became even faster. Operating system designed specifically for 64-bit architecture. Any of these functions would allow the smartphone to be one step ahead of others. And with all these features, the iPhone is just ahead of its time.

iPhone 5s is thought up to within a micron. And this is noticeable in every detail. Elegant aluminum case. Smooth glass and metal. Sapphire coating on the button "Home". And the same protective coating on the iSight camera lens. Design and build quality that are hard to beat. Therefore, the iPhone 5 looks incredibly elegant and light. Three versions of the body color: gold, silver and "gray space."

You look in the iPhone dozens of times a day, or even more often. It is tedious to enter the password every time. But it gives you confidence that no one else will get access to your iPhone. The iPhone 5s uses a slightly unusual, but a simpler and faster way of identification. Introducing the Touch ID. Now your iPhone recognizes you by a fingerprint. Attach a finger to the Home button and the iPhone is unlocked. This is a convenient and truly safe way to protect your phone. With this technology, you can also confirm purchases in iTunes, the App Store - you do not need to enter the password anymore. Touch ID recognizes your fingerprint from any angle. Attach your finger as you like - vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Your iPhone will recognize the fingerprint and recognize you. The Touch ID sensor allows you to save multiple prints so that people you trust can also use the phone.

There is simply speed. And there is the speed of the A7 processor. The graphics speed and performance of the A7 processor are twice as large as those of the A6. It's even more impressive that the iPhone 5s with the A7 processor is the world's first 64-bit smartphone with the capabilities of a real personal computer inside an ultra-thin case. The operating system iOS 7 was developed specifically for 64-bit architecture, and therefore uses all the capabilities of the A7 processor. The new M7 coprocessor is the A7 helper. It was created specifically for processing accelerometer motion signals, gyroscope and compass - those tasks that the A7 processor should perform. But the M7 copes with them much better. Now fitness applications that track physical activity can collect this data via the M7 coprocessor without downloading A7. This allows you to conserve battery power more economically. M7 knows what you do: walk, run or drive a car. If you parked the car and continued your journey on foot, the Maps switch from step-by-step navigation from car to pedestrian mode. And if the location of the phone does not change (for example, when you are sleeping), M7 less often checks the connection to the network, saving battery power.

The iPhone 5s use the latest technology specifically designed for the hardware and software of the iSight camera. Therefore, everyone can make an excellent shot. We decided that it is better to teach the iPhone to shoot really good shots, than to explain the subtleties of shooting to users. Here are just some of the features of the new iSight camera. You can not always be in the place where you would like, but you can always appear there on the screen. Share good news with your best friend or wish a good night to a loved one who is in another city, using FaceTime video call. The fundamentally new FaceTime HD camera on the iPhone 5s has larger pixels and an improved ambient light sensor on the rear panel, so your smile will shine in almost any light. In the iOS 7 operating system, FaceTime also supports conventional voice calls.

iPhone looks amazing. So, and the cover for it should look correspondingly. The new iPhone 5s Case is more than a worthy option. Made of high quality, specially selected leather, these cases are elegant and very pleasant to the touch. They fit perfectly in size, so even in a case the iPhone 5s looks incredibly thin.

In addition to iPad Air, the presentation also featured OS X 10.9 Mavericks, iLife and iWork package updates, new MacBook Pro with Retina, new MacPro and iPad mini with Retina.

iPad Air has received a new design, corresponding to the style of the iPad mini. Thanks to this solution, it has become much more compact (less in width by 16.2 mm) and lighter (by 28%). Also, the tablet decreased 2 mm in thickness (20%). In the 5th generation of the iPad, there is a powerful Apple A7 processor with a frequency of 1.4 GHz, built on a 64-bit architecture, and an additional Apple M7 co-processor that collects and processes data from the integrated sensors of the accelerometer, gyro and compass. This was done in order to ease the load on the CPU and reduce power consumption. Another characteristic difference is the stereo speakers, which first appeared in the first generation iPad mini.
