Apple’s iPhone turns 10. Where does it go from here? ( VIDEO )

Happy birthday, iPhone. You’re 10 years old! What do you want to be when you grow up?

When Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone 10 years ago today, he touted Apple’s abilityto combine three products — “a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and a breakthrough internet communications device with desktop-class email, web browsing, searching and maps — into one small and lightweight handheld device.”

Those characteristics are still in today’s iPhones, but they’re so much more. Think over 2 million apps more, changing everything from the way we commute to the way we communicate with family and friends. At the same time, it has spawned hundreds of copycats and created new industries that couldn’t exist without phones. The iPhone is the most successful consumer device ever created.

So where does it go from here?

How To Keep Your iPhone Cool #TwunhuTips

If you find yourself frequently suffering from iPhone ‘cool down’ modes then you should look into where and how you are using the iPhone. These tips will help you keep the iPhone running:

  • Remove the case. Sounds obvious but taking the iPhone out of a case will help it keep cool.
  • Don’t leave it in a car. Temperatures can rise in parked cars quite rapidly. Take the iPhone with you when parked.
  • Avoid sunlight. Unless you’re somewhere extremely hot this may be a bit extreme. But if you’re on holiday then keep the iPhone in a bag.
  • Avoid playing games. Games tax the processor, which heats up the device.
  • Stop using Bluetooth. Turn off bluetooth because it provides an additional source of heat.
  • Turn off Location Services. GPS is one item that heats up the iPad the most. Turn it using Settings > Privacy > Off.
  • Avoid using Map directions. Using the Maps turn-by-turn directions mode adds a lot of extra heat to the iPhone.
  • Avoid charging. Charging heats up the device, so avoid charging if you’re in a hot area.
  • Turn on AirPlane mode. You can keep the iPhone running cooler in AirPlay mode, which turns off GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi and Cellular data.
  • Turn it off. It’s a bit extreme but if you’re worried about overheating then keeping the iPhone switched off when not in use can help. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and slide to power off the device.

Hopefully all these tips will enable you to keep the iPhone running at an acceptable temperature.

iPhone 7 to Launch in the Week of September 12: Report

Apple traditionally holds its iPhone launch event in September every year, but there is no official announcement on the iPhone 7 event date yet. However, a fresh leak now points at a tentative launch time frame. The iPhone 7 may be launched in the third week of September, specifically in the week of September 12.

This time-frame comes from tipster Evan Blass, who is noted for his accuracy when it comes to leaks. Last year, Apple launched the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on September 9, however it came to India a month later. The same pattern is also expected this year.

The iPhone 7 was expected to launch in three variants – iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and a new iPhone 7 Pro version. However, new leaks hint that Apple may just stick to two variants this year. There is also expected to be a new base storage variant – 32GB. The probable storage offerings are going to be shuffled to 32GB, 128GB, and a possible new 256GB variant.

Apple may also introduce a new dual camera setup in its large iPhone 7 Plus variant. There is also going to be the addition of the Smart Connector at the back, again exclusive to the large variant only. To accommodate all this new hardware, the iPhone 7 Plus may get a bump to 3GB RAM.

The variants are expected to sport slightly bigger batteries, and the new Apple A10 processor for faster performance. The Home Button is expected to perform multiple functions, and be Force Touch enabled. Because of the new chip (and if the rumoured death of 3.5mm audio jack is true), the iPhone 7 is also expected to be at least 1mm slimmer than its predecessor.

There’s also a lot of chatter about the 3.5mm audio jack. Conflicting reports on the removal of the audio output make it difficult to really nail a presumptive conclusion on whether it will be included this year or not. There’s also expected to be a new Space Black colour variant with this year’s launch.

A Tech Giant Debuted A New Messaging App

Google launched Gboard, its keyboard app for iOS, on Thursday and it is currently sitting in the top spot in the App Store’s chart of free apps. Among other things, Gboard brings Google search into any app with the press of the “G” icon. This, of course, could also mean bringing Google search ads to any app.

searchengineland.comfigzwp-contentseloads201605Gboard-search-results-e1463150660742-fa022d948f09487b226687673fd3f09f900c4092

Gone are the days of leaving your conversation mid-text to open the search app, find the desired information, copy that information, reopen the messaging app, and finally paste the information into a text. From news articles to flight times to, most importantly, restaurant locations, Gboard has the potential to revolutionize the way we share information via text.

We finally learned about a new app Apple plans to introduce in #iOS 10

With Apple’s annual WWDC event now just barely more than a month away, we still know surprisingly little about the types of tweaks and features Apple is planning to add to iOS 10. Is it possible that Apple is finally following through on Tim Cook’s 2012 promise to “double down on secrecy” or is it more likely that there aren’t a whole lot of new and interesting features in iOS 10 to begin with? Hopefully it’s the former, but thankfully we’ll only have to wait until June 13 to find out.

In the interim, the iOS 10 rumors that we have seen leak out have been interesting but not necessarily exciting. To wit, a Bloomberg report from a few days ago relayed that Apple plans to touch up Apple Music with a complete UI overhaul. And just over the weekend,MacRumors published a report indicating that iOS 10 will finally see Apple introduce a dedicated HomeKit app.

The benefits of such an app are clear and exciting for those with an interested in connected home technologies. With various devices requiring the use of their own proprietary apps, sometimes managing a connected home can be a bit cumbersome. A HomeKit app positioned a central hub for all of a user’s smart devices, however, would go a long ways towards making a home full of Internet-connected devices easier to manage, control and tweak.

Interestingly enough, the source of the rumor came in the form of an Amazon review from someone purporting to be an Apple employee. MacRumors was independently able to verify that the reviewer is, in fact, an employee in Apple’s marketing department.

iOS 10 Concept Imagines Exciting New iPhone Features We’ve Been Dying for

Apple has made significant strides over the years when it comes to the usability and sleekness of its mobile operating system, but sometimes even the most successful designers would be wise to listen to criticism from fans.

In a new video, YouTube user Ralph Theodory has taken a stab at his own conceptual design for iOS 10, and it’s quite the improvement over iOS 9.

There’s no point in detailing every change that Theodory implemented into his concept, but a few are definitely worth discussing. For example, why isn’t the Smart Info Cam he shows off at the beginning of the video already a thing? The fact that you need to download separate apps to do something the camera should be able to do on its own is patently silly.

The best parts of these concept videos are when the artists make something look just as simple to implement as the average user would expect it to be. For example: why isn’t there an option to remove the system apps that we never use? Add a separate screen in the Settings menu and we’d always be able to restore them if we decided we needed them back somewhere down the line.

You don’t have to look very hard to find iPhone and iPad users unsatisfied with the user interface of Apple Music. It’s one of the least pleasant first-party experiences on iOS, but the proposed quick reach menu could work wonders.

And those are just (some of) the iPhone alternations. The entire second half of the video is focused on the iPad, with suggestions to improve multitasking, create new virtual buttons in Control Center and more.

Watch the full video of the iOS 10 concept below:

Apple Announces The New iPhone Apple SE

Apple unveiled a new 4-inch iPhone, and a smaller iPad Pro during a Monday event.

The company said its new phone — called the iPhone SE — will begin at $399 for the 16GB model. The new iPad Pro model, which features a 9.7-inch display, will start at $599 for the 32GB version.

Apple’s stock has fallen about 15 percent over the last year, but it’s been on the rise since the beginning of February. Shares in the company turned negative during the event, which began at 1 p.m. ET and lasted for about an hour.

Apple CEO Tim Cook began the event by addressing the company’s fight against the U.S. government over whether it should break into the phone used by one of the San Bernardino attackers.

Here’s CNBC’s live coverage of the Apple event:

5 Effective Ways To Get More Battery Life On Your iOS Device

1.Activate Lower Power Mode

Lower Power Mode comes with a cost, though: “mail fetch, background refresh, automatic downloads, and some visual effects are reduced or turned off,” according to Apple. Still, it’s worth turning on when you really need it: Settings > General > Battery > Lower Power Mode. The notification will also pop up suggesting you switch to Low Power Mode when your battery dips to 20% or lower.

iOS 9 Low Power Mode

2.Remove or Manage location services

Apps that use the iPhone’s built-in GPS are known battery culprits. If you go into Settings > Privacy > Location Services, you’ll find a list of all the apps that use location services. Disable as many apps that don’t or shouldn’t be accessing to the GPS, like the Dictionary app. Why on earth does it need to know your location? It doesn’t.

3.Disable Bluetooth

Bluetooth is great for connecting a wireless speaker, wireless headphones or AirDropping files to other Apple devices. In general, Bluetooth uses up very little power when it’s idle, but as a wireless protocol, it’s constantly searching for devices to pair with. Turn it on when you’re using it, otherwise, leave it off. Bluetooth can be switched off by opening the Control Center (swiping up from the bottom of the screen) or going to Settings > Bluetooth.

4. Manage Background App Refresh

Background App Refresh is a feature that lets apps refresh content in the background, so they’re always up to date with the newest data when you open them. Unfortunately, constantly refreshing apps in the background is hard on battery.We recommend diving into Settings > General > Background App Refresh and only leaving apps you need to have background refreshing.

5.Turn off the fancy animations
