Apple iPhone 4 Secret Mod: Camera Mic App Triggers Your iPhone Camera Shutter Using You Mic (www.drmobiles.co.nz)


When Apple removed the array of applications from the iTunes App Store which remapped the camera shutter button on the iPhone. we were left having to use the Apple screen shutter release. However a new application is now available within the Apple App Store that allows you to cleverly use your microphone on the headphone cord to trigger the iPhones shutter to take photographs.
The Camera Mic App offers the ability to take pictures using the iPhone or iPod Touch 4G’s microphone allowing a user to “feel” and tap it like a physical button. You can also tweak the sensitivity of the tapping from within the app to make sure you dont take unwanted photo’s.

You can also use the mic within the iPhone itself, positioned on the bottom-left side of the home button and of course using sounds or voice commands if required. The new Camera Mic application is available to download from the Apple App Store for $1.

Apple’s Smart Bezel Patent Could Add Secondary Display To iPhone And iPad


04 June, 2011, Auckland (www.drmobiles.co.nz) -- There have been some patents previously from Apple about a smart bezel for iOS devices, but a new one has just been revealed, and the details look very interesting.


The latest patent for an Apple Smart Bezel, would see Apple using the bezel as a secondary display, which uses a printed segmented electroluminescent display, and this would be used to show illuminated indicators on the bezel.

The illuminated indicators would then be able to change and display different things, for example you would be able to see gaming controls and productivity controls built into the front side of the bezel.

The patent also points to controls that could also be built in to the back of a device, like the back of the iPhone or iPad, you can find out full details on this new Smart Bezel patent from Apple over at Patetnly Apple.

Leaked iPhone 5 Part Shows Larger Display, Thinner Bezel (www.drmobiles.co.nz, Auckland iPhone Repair)


Apple is set to unveil the new iPad 2 later this week, and it is all we have been hearing about for the last few weeks, but what about the iPhone 5? The photo below shows a replacement part which is reported to be for the iPhone 5.


As you can see from the photo below, if this part for the iPhone 5 is genuine it will feature a larger display than the iPhone 4 and also a thinner bezel, this is something we have heard previously.
iPhone 5 display
If this display part for the iPhone 5 is real, then we could see the iPhone 5 launch with a 4 inch display. We have also heard previously that the iPhone 5 will feature an upgraded processor over the current A4 chip found in the iPhone 4.

No doubt once Apple has unveiled the new iPad 2 on Wednesday all the iPhone 5 rumors will start up again, and we will probably see many more things like this until the iPhone 5 is officially unveiled.

Apple iPhone 2011 News Update: Will The iPhone 5 Look Like This? (iPhone unlock by www.drmobiles.co.nz)


We have already seen some photos of what is reported to be the new display for the iPhone 5, which shows a much thinner bezel and a larger display, and now we have another photo of a case mock up for the iPhone 5.


The photo below appeared on a Chinese trading site, and it is reported to be a new case for the iPhone 5, the photo is obviously a mock up, but the design of the iPhone 5 could end up looking like this as it ties in with the previous leaked display we saw.

Some workers at Foxconn, who make the iPhone and iPad for Apple have been charged with leaking details of the iPad 2 to case manufacturers, and we saw quite a few mock ups of the iPad 2, which turned out to be exactly the same as the iPad 2 when it was officially unveiled.

It could be possible that information has again been leaked by Foxconn workers to case manufacturers, and the photo above could end up being the actual design of the new iPhone 5.
