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 for its own electronics: for example, access points, mice, keyboards, headphones and even monitors. Apple is also a manufacturer of software for its devices, releasing both operating systems and programs for these OSs.

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 two Steves.

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

Why was the name Apple chosen for the company? Firstly, Steve Jobs wanted to come up with an original, non-trivial name for the company. Secondly, Wozniak and Vane could not come up with any other options. Thirdly, the word Apple was chosen because in this case the company would have gone higher in telephone directories than Atari’s sworn competitor. Fourth, the apple is associated with Isaac Newton and his traumatic brain injury, which served as an impetus to great scientific discoveries. By the way, the first Apple logo also hints at this.

Where is Apple based? Apple's offices are located in the heart of California's Silicon Valley, in Cupertino. Apple headquarters address sounds like 1 Infinite Loop.

How did Apple logos evolve?

The first Apple logo Colorful Apple Logo Apple's current logo
For more than thirty years of history, the company has survived only three rebrandings. 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 first computer with color graphics support was released. All that remained of Wayne's art was a bitten apple, painted in all the colors of the rainbow. The multi-colored logo lived until the end of the 20th century, and then it was replaced by a bleached version. Rumor has it that Apple is tired of comparing their logo with the rainbow flag that the sex minorities have adopted. A gray apple is much better suited to the concept of modern design of Apple products - the strictness of colors, nothing more + a unique style. However, Apple is not always gray. On many products of the company it is black or white.

IPhone models

iPhone 2G
iPhone 2G is the first model of the apple-tree, which went on sale locally under the Shmul operator AT&T. Break to brick / iPod this version of the phone is practical. impossible, because Apple is not updating the software version since firmware 2.0. It follows from this that when you have a phone with firmware higher than 2.x in your hands, you can call anyway, the modem or IPhone will not be blocked. But minus the model - it needs to be activated (jailbreak or simply hack). As soon as the phone software is updated, the update and software for breaking them out immediately.

Warning: do not update immediately after the release of a new firmware. Be sure to ask about the possibility of a program for jail. But all of a sudden, you’ve updated all the same - don’t bother, you will need to lower the firmware (Make downgrade).

iPhone 3G
iPhone 3G is the second generation of the device. With this model, the division into "Americans" and "Europeans." For the reason: phones began to be sold all over the planet, and the legislation and power in each country are different, and the attitude to sales is accordingly different too. In order to check the phone’s version or firmware, go to the menu in the Settings - Basic - About the device - Model or page section on our website [ Find out which iPhone you have ]

Useful Information: in the slang of iPhones, the “American” is the blocked handsets, and the “European” is the one that works with any operator.

For the "Europeans" - if you are the owner of a European, you are in luck. You can upgrade to a new firmware without any problems without fear that your phone will fail. The maximum that can happen is that you will like the firmware itself, but there will not be a jail program for it and you will only have to use legal software, but there is always the possibility to roll back to an earlier firmware without any problems.

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

Warning: never press the "Update" button in iTunes without specifying a jail !!! First, make sure that the firmware has already been hacked, and the new version of the modem is unlocked. It often happens that there is already a firmware jail, but there is no modem unlock. This was with version 3.1.2 (modem 11/05/07), but later, unlocking nevertheless appeared, and then it repeated with 3.1.3 (modem 12/05/01) - there is a jail, there is still no unlock. With a great deal of confidence, you can upgrade to the so-called “custom” firmware (custom - custom, custom). These are the same original firmware from Apple, only the jail is already sewn into the firmware itself. Often, while there is no unlock for the new version of the modem, custom firmware with the old modem is offered. Everything is very confusing, but always in the comments of the author of the firmware it is indicated whether it can be installed on the “Americans”, verified custom firmware can be found in this thread.

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

Warning: Apple really didn’t like that its new treasury was hacked so quickly, and since the fall of 2009, and more precisely since the 42nd week of 2009, phones have been launched with an updated version of the bootloader [ What is iBoot? ]. This led to the fact that the jailbreak procedure is canceled immediately after rebooting the phone. Here the term “attached jail” appeared . The meaning is the following: there is a hack, it works, but before the first reboot, after that the phone needs to be connected to the PC and turned on using the program that made the jail. It turns out that if you have an “American”, 43 or more weeks of release — without a PC, you are tormented or you need to clearly monitor the charge and play less with Cydia, but it’s better not to play at all.

UPD With the release of the [ Spirit ] program, the issue of the “attached jail” has been removed.

Warning: 3Gs devices are not allowed to downgrade the firmware! When trying to feed iTunes the downloaded earlier or custom firmware, it will climb onto the Internet on the Apple server and check whether it is possible to flash, naturally it will be refused and will not do anything. All the catch in the digital signature of the device, which is verified with the server. But here was found a way out. The well-known Saurik (the organizer of the alternative software store - Cydia) created a server that replaces Apple's permission for firmware, however, not everything is as smooth as we would like. First, you need to save this very signature on its server. To do this, on the main page of Cydia you need to click the Make my life easier, please !, button as soon as possible [ how to save a signature (ECID certificate) ]. Now your life has become a little easier. With the release of new firmware, you can, if desired, be able to return to the previous one. How? Instructions on how to [ roll back firmware to 3.1.3. ]

Useful Information: it is recommended that everyone keep a digital signature, and the sooner the better. She doesn’t ask for food, but life can really make it easier even for a “European”. “Americans” - in no case be updated on new firmware, until the permission of DevTeam (authors of programs for jail) !!! “Europeans” - only updated consciously, and realizing that until the jail comes out, you will have to use only legally acquired software.

iPhone 4
iPhone 4 is Apple’s fourth generation apple phone. For the first time, in 4 years, a company from California decided to change the design, which caused a lot of reproaches and shortcomings, beyond recognition. Despite all the omissions 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, and all disputes about the unsuccessful design were dispelled. The iPhone 4 was introduced as the “biggest leap” since the launch of the first iPhone, and experts have already suggested that this version of the iPhone 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 p.m. Pacific Time, the Apple Talk headquarters in Cupertino launched the “Let's Talk iPhone” event, which introduced the new iPhone 4S (“S” means Siri). Instead of the usual Steve Jobs audience, the smartphone was introduced by Phill Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of international marketing. Steve Jobs at that time was in the ward of the clinic in Palo Alto.

The main innovations in the iPhone 4s:

  • Dual core Apple A5 microprocessor with a clock frequency of 1000 MHz (underestimated software to 800 MHz)
  • Enhanced 8MP Full HD 1080p Recording Camera
  • Siri Virtual Assistant
  • Updated operating system iOS 5 (At the moment, a new version of iOS 5.1.1 software has been released)
  • Added GLONASS support
  • Bluetooth version 4.0

Siri: Voice control appeared two years ago in the iPhone 3GS. But that Voice Control only recognized the commands that the user should have previously learned. Voice Assistant Siri takes the idea to a new level. The bottom line is, Siri recognizes 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 is well aware of the many phrases associated with managing embedded applications. You can ask her the weather for tomorrow or the weekend, or you can ask if it is worth taking an umbrella with you. To set an alarm, just tell her: “Wake me up at 8 o’clock in the morning.” Siri is aware of the existence of relationships between people - for the first time, when asked to “Call his wife,” she herself will ask you to clarify who is in question and remember the answer. [ How to set up SIRI on iPhone 4 >>> ], [ How to set up RUSSIAN SIRI on iPhone 4 >>> ]

Conclusions: iPhone 4S is the best iPhone ever made. It's true. It would be strange if the new model were worse than the previous one. Compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 4S has three key benefits: significantly increased performance, an improved camera and Siri voice assistant. Moreover, the last of them does not play a role for Russian-speaking users. I would not recommend buying iPhone 4 owners to iPhone 4 owners, wait for iPhone 5 if you have enough patience. But users of iPhone 3GS and older will be delighted with the switch to 4S. For those who simply choose a new smartphone, I will say the following. iPhone 4S is one of the most powerful flagships, and at the same time the most long-lived of them. And he just has a great camera, compared to which, for example, Nokia N9 fans will fight for a long time in slobbering battles on both sides.

iPhone 5
iPhone 5 is the sixth generation of Apple's popular smartphones, designed by Jonathan Ivele. The successor to the iPhone 4S, the new iPhone was unveiled on September 12, 2012 in San Francisco, California. The form factor has changed in this model, but the main features are still similar to the entire iPhone line. The iPhone 5 became noticeably longer and thinner, Apple decided to return to where it once started and made the back of aluminum, and paired with glass, the thickness of the new case is only 7.6 mm, which allows the rightfully new iPhone 5 to be worn the title of the thinnest gadget in the history of the Apple iPhone. The screen received a larger 4-inch display with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels and a 16: 9 aspect ratio, before that all iPhones had a 4: 3 aspect ratio. A significant reduction in the thickness of the device, of course, incurred a significant reduction in weight - the iPhone 5 “lost weight” by as much as 32 grams and now its weight is only 114 grams.

Key innovations in the iPhone 5:

  • Large 4 "display with a resolution of 1136x640 pixels, 16: 9, widescreen
  • Support for HSPA +, DC-HSDPA, LTE in the US and Canada, ultrafast WiFi - the new standard 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11n.

  • Three microphones: bottom, top and rear - for better noise reduction;
  • Updated design, new 8-pin Lighning connector - 80% less;
  • Two colors: black / graphite and white / silver;
  • New EarPods included;

iPhone 5c
iPhone 5c - Every iPhone innovation must meet one condition - to improve the experience of using it. Therefore, the colors of the iPhone 5c, we thought through as carefully as everything else. Even the palette of the Main screen and wallpaper is now harmoniously combined with the body. Result: The iPhone has become even more pleasant and exciting. You have not seen or tried such an iPhone yet. 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 hides, providing structural integrity. Taking the iPhone 5c in your hands, you will immediately realize 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 through them the body color is visible. It turns out 30 funny combinations - you will have plenty to choose from. The iPhone 5c Case not only protects your phone, but also makes it even more outstanding. And it helps you to clearly declare your personality. Open your favorite app. Check out an interesting blog. Download and watch the amazing video you just sent. Turn on the game with graphics at the level of the best game consoles. Do whatever you like on the iPhone - the speed will be incredible. The A6 processor is extremely energy efficient. You can enjoy using your iPhone all day and not worry about the battery running out.

Thanks to advanced features such as a five-lens, snapshots of the 8-megapixel iSight camera are amazingly clear. Another great feature is the panoramic mode, which allows you to shoot in high resolution crowded football stadiums, the Scottish mountains and the entire orchestra, which plays under the window in honor of your birthday. On iPhone 5c, a new Camera application has been introduced, with which you will begin to photograph more professionally. Take pictures in square format. Or choose any of eight filters - they can be used before and after shooting. Set the “Instant” filter to make a group beach photo a bit retro. Choose Photochrom to make your sunset photo even more colorful. And with the Noir filter, you get an extremely expressive black and white self-portrait.

When shooting HD-video with a resolution of 1080p, a new three-dimensional zoom will allow you to capture the subject even closer. And the video stabilization function will smooth out the effect of a trembling camera, if you do not stand still - in particular, it will be very useful for you in enserro. The face recognition function finds up to 10 people in the frame, so that no one disappears from sight. And one more possibility - taking pictures during video recording, which will be useful if you are going to shoot a story and talk about the shooting process itself. iPhone 5c is equipped with the new FaceTime HD camera. Higher resolution and an improved 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 communicate only through FaceTime audio communication - the sound will be even clearer than that of broadband audio.

iPhone 5s
iPhone 5s - A7 processor with 64-bit architecture. Fingerprint identification sensor. An advanced camera that has become even faster. An operating system designed specifically for 64-bit architecture. Any of these functions would allow the smartphone to be one step ahead of the others. And with all these features, the iPhone is simply ahead of its time.

iPhone 5s is designed with micron accuracy. And it is noticeable in every detail. Elegant aluminum case. Smooth glass and metal. Sapphire coating on the Home button. 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 body color options: gold, silver and “gray space”.

You look into the iPhone dozens of times a day, or even more often. It's tedious to enter a 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 simpler and faster identification method. Introducing Touch ID. Now your iPhone recognizes you by fingerprint. Put your finger on the Home button and the iPhone will unlock. This is a convenient and truly secure way to protect your phone. Using this technology, you can also confirm purchases in iTunes, the App Store - you no longer need to enter a password. Touch ID recognizes your fingerprint at any angle. Place your finger as you like - vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Your iPhone recognizes the fingerprint and recognizes you. The Touch ID sensor allows you to save multiple prints so that people you trust can also use the phone.

There is just speed. And there is the speed of the A7 processor. The speed of graphics and the performance of the A7 processor are twice as much as that of the A6. It is 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 iOS 7 operating system was developed specifically for the 64-bit architecture, and therefore uses all the capabilities of the A7 processor. The new M7 coprocessor is an A7 assistant. It was created specifically for processing the motion signals of the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass - those tasks that the A7 processor should have performed. But the M7 copes with them much better. Exercise fitness apps can now collect this data through the M7 coprocessor without loading the A7. This allows you to save battery power. M7 knows what you are doing: walking, running or driving. If you parked your car and continued on foot, Maps will switch the turn-by-turn navigation from car mode to pedestrian mode. And if the phone’s location does not change (for example, when you sleep), the M7 less often checks the network connection, saving battery power.

The iPhone 5s uses the latest technology specifically designed for the iSight camera hardware and software. Therefore, everyone can take a great shot. We decided it was 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 may not always be in the place you would like, but you can always appear there on the screen. Share the good news with your best friend or say good night to your loved one in another city using FaceTime video call. The all-new FaceTime HD camera on the iPhone 5s has larger pixels and an improved light sensor on the back, so your smile will shine in almost any light. In iOS 7, FaceTime also supports regular voice calls.

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

At the presentation of the Apple iPad 2 Internet tablet, Steve Jobs said: “... Technology is inseparable from the humanities - and this statement is true more than ever for devices in the post-computer era.

iPad Air
iPad Air - iPad Air (5th generation iPad) is an Internet tablet introduced by Apple on October 22, 2013. The iPad Air was unveiled at the Yerba Buena Contemporary Art Center in San Francisco on October 22, 2013, at Apple's presentation, "We still have a lot to cover" (Russian. "We still have a lot to talk about."). The presentation began at 10:00 a.m. PST (20:00 p.m. Kiev; 21:00 p.m. Moscow). The tablet was introduced by Apple's senior vice president of marketing, Phil Schiller. The name “iPad Air” became a sensation, since no one expected this turn of events. In addition to the iPad Air, OS X 10.9 Mavericks, iLife and iWork package updates, the new MacBook Pro with Retina, the new MacPro and iPad mini with Retina were also presented at the presentation.

iPad Air received a new design that matches the style of the iPad mini. Thanks to this solution, it has become much more compact (16.2 mm wider) and lighter (28%). Also, the tablet reduced 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 has appeared, which collects and processes data from integrated sensors of the accelerometer, gyroscope 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.

The new iPad Air is incredibly slim and light. But at the same time, it is much more powerful and functional than its predecessors. With an A7 processor, advanced wireless technology, and great work and creativity apps that work in conjunction with iOS 7, iPad Air gives you more options than you could imagine. In any corner of the world. With its Unibody aluminum casing, the new iPad Air is surprisingly thin but incredibly durable. It has become almost a quarter lighter than the previous generation iPad. Defying gravity, it weighs just 469 grams. But what really surprises the iPad Air is its increased power and functionality, packaged in a slim case. You can carry even less with you and do even more.

The screen has always been the main thing on the iPad. This applies even more to the iPad Air. We have reduced the width of the device and the side edges along the edges of the display. But the size of the stunning Retina display has not decreased by a millimeter. Images are now even more eye-catching. With a resolution of 2048 x 1536 and more than 3.1 million pixels, videos and photos play in all the details, and the text looks crystal clear. Pixels are not visible to the eye. Therefore, you see only what you wanted to see.

Apple's new A7 processor brings 64-bit desktop architecture to the iPad. This means doubling the speed of the processor and graphics when performing any task. And you still have up to 10 hours on a single charge - to study, work, play, play, and whatever you like.

iPad Air is made powerful, but not gluttonous. Although it has become 20 percent thinner and up to two times faster than the previous generation iPad, it still works the same incredible 10 hours without recharging. 1 And all because the A7 processor has become not only more powerful, but also more efficient. Wherever you go with your iPad Air, you always have enough battery power to go even further.

iPad Mini
iPad MINI - Great display, powerful A5 processor, FaceTime HD camera, iSight camera with the ability to record HD-video with a resolution of 1080p, ultra-fast wireless and more than 375,000 applications in the App Store. The iPad mini is still the same gorgeous iPad, just a little smaller.

And it is ideal for working with hundreds of thousands of applications created for the iPad.

iPad mini - these are all unique features of the iPad in a more compact case. Due to the body thickness of only 7.2 millimeters, it is incredibly thin and light. 3 It can simply be held with one hand. And it will fit even in the smallest handbag, to always be with you.

iPad mini was no exception in speed. It is equipped with a powerful and economical A5 processor, thanks to which any actions on the iPad mini are performed smoothly and naturally. From the simplest functions, such as switching between applications and switching between pages, to such complex tasks as games, editing photos and watching movies, the iPad mini works incredibly long without recharging - otherwise it would not be an iPad.

The thin and light iPad mini needed an ultra-thin connector. And this Lightning connector is fully digital, with eight pins, much more durable than a 30-pin connector. In addition, it is two-way - that is, it cannot be connected incorrectly. 30 pin Lightning adapter. If you have iPad accessories with a 30-pin connector, you can still connect them to your iPad mini. Just use the 30-pin Lightning adapter (sold separately).

Now an appeal to all who have read this work: Have you carefully read it? Do you understand everything? If you do not understand something, it is better to ask again immediately.
