Pro Apple Gadgets

What is Apple doing ? Production of computers (both desktops and laptops) and mobile electronics: music 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 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, Vane left the founders after only 12 days, so the creators of Apple usually call two Steves.

Who were the founders of Apple? Both Steve had a decent experience in large IT companies by the time the idea of ​​creating his own company appeared. Wozniak worked at Hewlett-Packard, and Jobs worked at Atari. If Steve Wozniak was, first of all, a brilliant engineer who was well versed in the technical aspects of creating computers, then Steve Jobs already in the distant 1970s was notable for his marketing intuition: he knew that people would be interested in and how they needed to present them understood that they can not live without him. The combination of talents Jobs and Wozniak and ensured the success of Apple.

Why was the name Apple chosen for the company? First, 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 go higher in telephone directories than the sworn competitor of the company, Atari. Fourthly, the apple is associated with Isaac Newton and his head injury, which triggered great scientific discoveries. Incidentally, the first Apple logo hints at this.

Where is Apple based? Apple offices are located in the heart of Silicon Valley California, in the town of Cupertino. Apple’s main office address is 1 Infinite Loop.

How did the Apple logo evolve?

Apple's first logo Multicolored Apple Logo Current Apple logo
For more than thirty years of history, the company 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 came out with support for color graphics. From Artworks Wayne left only bitten apple, painted in all the colors of the rainbow. The multicolored logo lived until the end of the 20th century, and then a discolored version came to replace it. It is rumored that Apple was tired of comparing their logo with the rainbow flag, which they adopted for the sexual minority. Gray apple is much better suited to the concept of modern design products Apple - the severity of colors, nothing more + unique style. However, Apple Apple is not always gray. On many products of the company it is black or white.

IPhone Models

iPhone 2G
The iPhone 2G is the first model of the apple phone that went on sale on the market under the Shmul operator AT & T. To break to the brick / iPod this version of the phone is practical. impossible, since Apple is not updating the software version since firmware 2.0. It follows from this that when you have a phone with firmware above 2.x in your hands, you can call in any case, the modem or iphone will not be blocked. But the minus of the model is that it needs to be activated (jailbreak or simply hack). As soon as the phone software is updated, the update immediately comes out and the software for hacking them.

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

iPhone 3G
iPhone 3G is the second generation of the device. From this model went the division into "Americans" and "Europeans." For the reason: phones began to be sold all over the planet, and the legislation and the power 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 the section Settings - Basic - About the device - Model or to go to the page on our website [ Find out what your iPhone is ]

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

For "Europeans" - if you are a European owner, you are lucky. You can easily upgrade to the new firmware without fear that your telephone will be locked up. The maximum that can happen is that you just like the firmware itself, but for it there will not be a jail program yet and you will have to use only legal software, but there is always an opportunity to roll back to an earlier firmware without any problems.

The owners of "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 what can turn your phone into an iPod in the event of a firmware update and the absence of unlock (jailbreak).

Warning: never click the "Update" button in iTunes without specifying the jail !!! First, make sure that the firmware has already been hacked, and the new version of the modem is unlocked. It often happens that the jail firmware is already there, but 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 an unlock, and then it was repeated with 3.1.3 (modem 05.12.01) - there is a jail, there is still no unlock. With a large degree of confidence, you can upgrade to the so-called "custom" firmware (custom - custom, customizable). These are the same original Apple firmwares, 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 the old modem is offered. Everything is very confusing, but it is always stated in the comments of the author of the firmware whether it can be put on “Americans”, proven custom firmware can be found in this topic.

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 jailbrick. iPhone 3Gs is also divided into "Americans" and "Europeans."

Warning: Apple didn’t like the fact that its new device was hacked so quickly, and since the fall of 2009, or rather from 42 weeks of 2009, they began to produce 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. This is where the term “tethered jail” appeared . The meaning is as follows - 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 with the help of the program that was used for the Jail. It turns out that if you have an “American”, 43 or more weeks of release, you will suffer without a PC, 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 "tied jail" question is removed.

Warning: 3Gs devices are not allowed to downgrade the firmware version! When you try to feed iTunes-downloaded an earlier or custom firmware, it will get into the Internet on the Apple server and check if it can be flashed, naturally it will be refused and will not do anything. All the snag in the digital signature of the device, which is checked 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 the firmware, though 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 Cydia main page, you need to press the button Make my life easier, please !, in more detail how to [ how to save the signature (ECID certificate) ]. Now your life has become a little bit easier. With the release of new firmware, you, if you wish, will 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 their digital signature, and the sooner the better. She does not ask for food, but life can really make it even easier for the “European.” "Americans" - in no case be updated on new firmware, until the permission of DevTeam (authors of programs for the Jail) !!! "Europeans" - to be updated only consciously, and realizing that until the jail comes out, you will have to use only legally acquired software.

iPhone 4
The iPhone 4 is the fourth generation Apple Apple. For the first time in 4 years, a company from California decided to change the design, which caused a lot of reproaches and shortcomings, to be unknown. Despite all the miscalculations 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 the disputes about the unsuccessful design were dispelled. The iPhone 4 was presented as the “biggest jump” since the release of 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 functions that could not be covered in one presentation.

iPhone 4s
iPhone 4s - October 4, 2011 at 10 o'clock PST at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, the Let's Talk iPhone event started, featuring the new iPhone 4S model (“S” means Siri). Instead of Steve Jobs, familiar to the public, Phill Schiller, senior vice president of international marketing for Apple, introduced the smartphone. Steve Jobs at this time was in the ward of a clinic in Palo Alto.

Major innovations in the iPhone 4s:

  • Apple A5 dual-core microprocessor with a clock frequency of 1000 MHz (software underestimated to 800 MHz)
  • Improved 8-megapixel camera with support for recording Full HD-1080p video
  • Siri Virtual Assistant
  • Updated iOS 5 operating system (A new version of iOS 5.1.1 software is currently available)
  • 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. Siri Voice Assistant takes the idea to a new level. The bottom line is that Siri recognizes natural language, that is, ordinary speech. According to the plan, you do not need to think how to build a phrase so that the machine understands it. In reality, everything is not very smooth. Siri perfectly understands the many phrases related to managing embedded applications. You can ask her for the weather for tomorrow or for the weekend, and you can ask whether it is worth taking an umbrella with you. To set the alarm, simply say to her: "Wake me up at 8 am". Siri is aware of the existence of connections between people - for the first time when she is asked to “Call his wife,” she will ask for clarification about who she is talking about and will 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 created. 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 advantages: significantly increased performance, improved camera and voice assistant Siri. 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 enough patience. But users of iPhone 3GS and older users will be delighted with the transition to 4S. Those who simply choose a new smartphone, I will say the following. iPhone 4S - this is one of the most powerful flagships, and at the same time the longest of them. And he also has a great camera, over which comparison with the camera, for example, the Nokia N9, the fans on both sides will fight for slobbering for a long time.

iPhone 5
iPhone 5 is the sixth generation of popular smartphones from Apple, designed the phone Jonathan Ive. The successor of 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 still resemble the entire iPhone line. The iPhone 5 has become noticeably longer and thinner, Apple has decided to return to what it once started and completed 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 wear the title of the thinnest gadget in the history of the Apple iPhone. The screen while getting a larger display size of 4 inches with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16: 9, before that, all the iPhone had a 4: 3 aspect ratio. A significant reduction in the thickness of the device, of course, suffered a significant reduction in weight - the iPhone 5 is “lost” by as much as 32 grams and now its weight is only 114 grams.

Major innovations in the iPhone 5:

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

  • Front camera FaceTime HD over 3G;
  • 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 headphones included;

iPhone 5c
iPhone 5c - Each innovation in the iPhone must meet one condition - to improve the impression of its use. Therefore, we thought over the colors of the iPhone 5c 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 nicer and more fun. You haven’t seen or tried this iPhone yet. Its great advantage is that it is made of plastic. And it gives the opportunity to release it in five unique colors. Under the smooth surface of the solid shell hides a steel frame, providing structural integrity. Taking the 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 Apple-designed cases - the bright and stylish iPhone 5c will become simply irresistible. Covers are made so that through them the color of the case 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 brighten your individuality. Open your favorite app. Go to an interesting blog. Download and watch the amazing video that you just sent. Turn on the game with graphics at the level of the best gaming consoles. Do whatever you like on the iPhone - the speed will be incredible. The A6 processor is extremely energy efficient. You will be able to enjoy your iPhone all day with pleasure and not worry about the battery running out.

With advanced features like a five-lens lens, iSight 8-megapixel camera shots are amazingly sharp. Another great feature is the panoramic mode, which allows you to shoot in high resolution crowded football stadiums, the Scottish mountains and the whole orchestra, which plays under the window in honor of your birthday. On iPhone 5c, the new Camera application is presented, with which you will be taking pictures more professionally. Take pictures in square format. Or select any of the eight filters — you can apply them before and after shooting. Set the “Instant” filter to make the group beach photo a bit retro. Choose “Photochrome” to make the photo of the sunset more colorful. And with the filter "Noir" you get a very 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 more closely. And the video stabilization function will smooth out the effect of a trembling camera, if you are not standing still - in particular, it will be very useful for you on Encerro. Facial recognition feature finds up to 10 people in the frame, so that no one will disappear from view. And another possibility is to take a photo while recording a video, which will be useful if you are going to shoot a story and tell about the shooting process itself. iPhone 5c is equipped with a new FaceTime HD camera. Higher resolution and an improved light sensor on the back panel provide increased sensitivity in low light. Sunset on the coast in all its glory can now be shown to friends in another part of the world. And you can turn off the video and communicate only via 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 the 64-bit architecture. Any of these functions would allow a smartphone to be one step ahead of others. And with all these features, the iPhone is just ahead of its time.

The 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 button "Home". And the same protective coating on the iSight camera lens. Design and build quality that are hard to beat. Therefore, iPhone 5 looks incredibly elegant and light. Three options for the color of the case: gold, silver and gray space.

You look into the iPhone dozens of times a day, and even more often. It's tiring every time to enter a password. But it gives you confidence that no one else will get access to your iPhone. The iPhone 5s uses a slightly unusual, but easier and faster way to identify. 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. With this technology, you can also confirm purchases in iTunes, the App Store - you will no longer need to enter a password. Touch ID recognizes your fingerprint at 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 the phone can also be used by people you trust.

There is just speed. And there is the speed of the processor A7. The graphics speed and A7 processor performance is twice as high as the A6 had. More impressively, the iPhone 5s with an A7 processor is the world's first 64-bit smartphone with the capabilities of a true 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 features of the A7 processor. The new M7 coprocessor is the A7 assistant. It was created specifically to process the motion signals of the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass — the tasks that the A7 processor should perform. But the M7 handles them much better. Fitness apps that track physical activity can now collect this data through the M7 coprocessor without loading the A7. This allows you to spend more battery power. M7 knows what you do: walk, run or drive. If you parked the car and continued your journey on foot, Maps switch step-by-step navigation from car to pedestrian mode. And if the location of the phone does not change (for example, when you sleep), the M7 rarely checks the connection to the network, saving battery power.

The iPhone 5s uses the latest technology specifically developed for the hardware and software of the iSight camera. Therefore, everyone can take a great shot. We decided that it was better to teach the iPhone to shoot really good shots than to explain the subtleties of shooting to users. Here are 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 the good news with your best friend or wish a good night to your loved one who is in another city using a FaceTime video call. The fundamentally new FaceTime HD camera on the iPhone 5s has larger pixels and an improved light sensor on the back panel, so your smile will shine in almost any light. In the iOS 7 operating system, 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 from high quality, specially selected leather, these cases are elegant and very pleasant to the touch. They fit perfectly in size, so even in an iPhone 5s case it looks incredibly thin.

iPad Air
iPad Air - iPad Air (iPad 5th generation) - Internet tablet, presented by Apple Corporation on October 22, 2013. iPad Air was presented at the Yerba Buena Center for Contemporary Art in San Francisco on October 22, 2013, at the presentation by Apple Corporation entitled "We still have a lot to cover" (Rus. "We still have a lot to talk about."). The presentation began at 10:00 am Pacific time (8:00 pm Kiev time; 9:00 pm Moscow time). The tablet was represented by Apple's senior vice president of marketing, Phil Schiller. The name “iPad Air” became a sensation, since no one expected such a turn of events. In addition to iPad Air, OS X 10.9 Mavericks, iLife and iWork pack updates, new MacBook Pro with Retina, new MacPro and iPad mini with Retina were also presented at the presentation.

iPad Air has received a new design that matches 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 diminished 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 appeared, which collects and processes data from integrated accelerometer, gyroscope and compass sensors. This was done in order to ease the load on the CPU and reduce power consumption. Another distinctive feature is the stereo speakers, which first appeared in the first generation iPad mini.

The new iPad Air is incredibly thin and light. But at the same time, it is much more powerful and functional than its predecessors. The A7 processor, advanced wireless technology and great applications for work and creativity, working in conjunction with iOS 7, - iPad Air gives you more options than you could imagine. In every corner of the world. Thanks to the aluminum Unibody case, 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 only 469 grams. But what really surprises the iPad Air is the increased power and functionality packed into the thinnest case. You can carry even less and do more.

The screen has always been central to the iPad. This is even more true for iPad Air. We 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 diminished by a millimeter. Images are now even more attracted to the eye. With a resolution of 2048 x 1536 and over 3.1 million pixels of video and photos play all the details, and the text looks crystal clear. Pixels are not distinguishable by the eye. Therefore, you see only what they wanted to see.

And you still have up to 10 hours without recharging - for study, work, games, creativity and everything that you like.

iPad Air is made powerful but not greedy. 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 this is because the A7 processor has become not only more powerful, but also more efficient. Wherever you go along with the 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 1080p HD video recording, ultra-fast wireless connectivity and over 375,000 applications on the App Store. iPad mini is still the same gorgeous iPad, just a little smaller.

Find out where you are and what's around you in the Maps application. 1. Scroll through photo albums and watch videos with great detail. And communicate via FaceTime with your loved ones.2 The iPad mini display is equipped with the same LED backlight technology as the iPad - which means that every centimeter looks bright and clear. And it is ideal for working with hundreds of thousands of applications created for the iPad.

iPad mini - this is all the unique features of the iPad in a more compact package. Due to the shell thickness of only 7.2 millimeters, it is incredibly thin and light.3 You can just hold it with one hand. And it will fit even in the smallest handbag, to always be with you.

iPad mini is no exception to the speed of work. 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 iPad mini has been working incredibly long without recharging - otherwise it would not be an iPad. Even with such high performance and such small sizes, it still works 10 hours without recharging.5 You can read, watch videos, play, write and engage in creative work as much as you like.

Thanks to the built-in FaceTime feature on iPad mini, you can make video calls over Wi-Fi or cellular networks.2 The FaceTime front HD camera allows you to see your interlocutors, and the iSight camera on the back panel gives you the opportunity to show your friends everything around you.

The thin and light iPad mini just needed an ultra-thin connector. And this Lightning connector is completely digital, with eight pins, much more durable than a 30-pin connector. In addition, it is two-way - that is, it can not be connected incorrectly. 30-pin Lightning adapter.
