Apple has invited members of the Press and media to attend, what is supposedly going to be the next iPhone Launch, at San Francisco. Several rumors and leaks despite the lock downs by Apple, seem to have shaken the world of technology. Apple products have by far been the best kept secret, but this time around it just seems everyone knows what to expect. Although rumours of a separate iPad -Mini event seem to be doing rounds, we are still skeptical of any such announcement.
The event starts at 10:30:00 PM IST on 12 September 2012 , we will bring you all the dirt and coverage as we can.
The next iPhone/ New iPhone / iPhone 5 will have some serious changes in design if all the recent leaks are to be considered. German website iFun has spotted what appear to be nano sims, at the IFA floor. If the website is to be believed the German Carrier T-Mobile (formerly Deutsch Telekom) is all set to start selling the upcoming iPhone, or atleast is ready with Sim Cards.
The only thing that really worries everyone at iGyaan is the lack of support for nano sims from our Carriers here in India. Just imagine after receiving a shiny white iPhone 5 (or 4 of them) just after launch, I’ll have to hacksaw my micro sim – Ugh!
Apple’s packaged in box earbuds have been asking for a revision for almost a decade now. Looks like this time around Apple is seriously going to change the game a little bit.The leaked headphones are oval tipped and slot in at an angle to fit more directly into the canals.
Vietnamese site Tinhte has just snagged up a pair of these, and say the new design earbuds are a lot more comfortable to wear, Have better sound and don’t keep falling out of the ear.
We will know soon enough if this is a hoax or the truth.
Motorola’s biggest ever complaint against Apple involves 7 technologies that are now owned by Motorola, such as syncing messages between devices and bookmarking media playback on one device to resume on another. Although Apple has been using these technologies since 2005 in podcasts and Movies from iTunes, Motorola’s complaint only targets the newer iPad, iPhone 4s and other devices in the bottom line of Apple’s retail chain.
The complaint may take 6 months to over a year to resolve. By then Apple’s new lineup of technologies should be out. But, the question on everyone’s mind remains whether Apple, with their billions of dollars of corp [...]
Google has let out a sly update to their Google+ apps on Android and iOS. The biggest addition is now allowing, Android phones to join Hangouts on Air, a feature we might use as soon as Today.

While the whole world was skeptical, Google just went ahead and put Chrome mobile on iOS. Both iPad and iPhone users will get the app, either with incognito browsing, syncing and that unique tabbed browsing interface intact.
With the restrictions on the Apple App Store the Chrome webkit will not be allowed on iOS, but either way the download is now live!
Apple has finally started to branch out into what is a major chunk of their earning region. Hong Kong, Taiwan and Vietnam are among the dozen new countries where Apple has just launched their iTunes store for music and movies. Other countries include Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand. If you are asking then the answer is no, India was not included.
The company has left out India from the mix, possibly in comparison to the number of account holders. Hopefully, they can roll out the store in the coming months.
While everyone waits the arrival of the next big OS for your iDevice, Apple is working hard to get it ready. The company has pushed out Beta 2 to the developers for testing, there are no special additions the primarily focus is on the bug fixes leading the software closer to a final release. There are still other betas expected before the final release comes out, So, hold on to your horses.
Those who have active developer accounts can download the latest betas from their accounts now.
