Do you own the brand new Apple iPhone5 ? or have you updated your Apple device to iOS6 recently ?then you are under the observation of someone for good..iOS 6 is coming with a feature turned on called “ IFA” that stands for "identifier for advertisers " . Apple paves the way to track the buying behaviours of the customers through this technology .This is pretty same like the cookies used in computers to track the users . IFA is very simple set of information that contains your ad clicking patterns and the buying behaviours on the net  and send to the interested parties via your Apple iOS6 device .

How to Stop IFA in Apple devices ?

This is a privacy related setting,but Apple covertly put the on /off option under very irrelevant  section of settings in the phone/Apple device .

Ok ,here is the way  : Just got to "General," then "About," and then navigate to the "Advertising" section. From there, you need to to turn "Limit Ad Tracking" on.

Please note Apple doesn’t track any of your personal information via this IFA, so ,no need to panic a lot  .

How to Fix iPhone 5 Camera–Official Tips from Apple

Iphone 5 camera issues and fix from apple

Guys ,we have heard  some issues about the new iPhone 5’s (and some 4s) camera few days back and here is the fix for that :

How to fix your iPhone 5,4S camera

  • You guys have complained that ,when you focus some brighter objects ,the iPhone5 camera produces a purple colour flare ,and Please avoid such purple flare in your shots by not shooting  in such angles ,where iPhone cam produces the Purple flare .

Please stop  finding me sarcastic , but it’s is Apple ,that has issued an official statement about the Purple flare appears in some shots of Apple iPhone’s camera ,Apple went on saying that it’s is very common in any generation of Apple Phone camera ,it does mean that the next generation  Apple iPhone and iProdcts too will have the same issues

Most small cameras, including those in every generation of iPhone, may exhibit some form of flare at the edge of the frame when capturing an image with out-of-scene light sources… Moving the camera slightly to change the position at which the bright light is entering the lens, or shielding the lens with your hand, should minimize or eliminate the effect. –Apple’s Support Forum
