We have heard about some bugs on Apple iOS6  and iPhone 5 already .Apple users keep on complaining many things since the release of iOS6,the most recent one is Wi-Fi connectivity ,that is lost forever in iOS6. Mostly people using iPhone 5 ,reported that their devices don’t have proper Wi-Fi connectivity in the forums . Anyhow people using iPhone4s,iPads and other idevices  are also believed to have the same problem after obtaining iOS6 .

Cnet reports that there are more than 91 pages of complains launched at Apple’s Discussion forum since September 19 to date. People have tried resetting the iPhones and reinstalling the iOS6 and other alternative methods ,but the result was same ,no connectivity at all. Several people have reported that the Wi-Fi option grayed out  in their iPhones.

But the problem persists with some units only ,means not each and every iPhone 5 and iOS6 device . If you are lucky enough your iPhone won’t have this problem !

People say ,not interested in iPhone 5 ,Poll reveals !

Reports coming from  blogosphere  are not in favour to iPhone 5 .

Apple have a great hope on the sales of it’s  new device iPhone5 but it seems that most of the people are not much interested after understanding the features as there are lesser room for excitement . Particularly the tech survey users ,show their less interest on the purchase of new iPhone 5. Techcrunch.com the online magazine from silicon Valley ,running a poll about the iPhone 5 ,and the number of people interested and disinterested are shown here (up to the time of this post ,the poll is running about two days now )

iphone 5 poll answered

Out of 387 people voted, only 80 people opted to buy iPhone 5 and the vast majority refuses to go for iPhone . This is because of the less attractive feature set it has .

Techcrunch.com is a hi-tech magazine where the readers are mostly  developers,IT support personals,  market analysts , entrepreneurs around the valley . Not the masses ,but the people from the tech industry and advanced users show hesitation on iPhone 5 . But the market is not built by all Geeks indeed !

Apple iPhone 5 is not a game changer anyway ,What is new there to care ?

Apple iPhone 5 ,features explained for non techie users .

“From my point of view Apple doesn’t create anything magical this time ,within the iPhone 5 ,but it can be a better device for anyone “

Apple has revealed the new iPhone 5 yesterday (12/09/2012)and today the trails of the event follows . Apple has added some more hardware and software features to it’s new device compared to the predecessor iPhone 4s  .But nothing  found to be exciting and new for the tech world. Lets have a look at the so called new add-ons of iPhone 5. If you own an iPhone 4s ,then you wont be much excited about the new advancements ,I dare !

  1. Large 4” retina display – Apple iPhone 5 has a decent display ,technology use is called retina ,but they have introduced it with their iPhone 4s already. Screen size of course ,no matter ,when you think about most of the Android and Windows phones available in the market for so long. Most of the Samsung’s Galaxy devices and HTC phones already in the game with giant screens 4”,4.5”,4.7” like screens are very common .
  2. LTE Connectivity  – LTE is the forth generation data connectivity standard ,so your phone can have faster internet access. Apple started LTE with it’s iPhone 5 only .Phones with LTE connectivity  are already there in the market ,Samsung’s Galaxy S2,S3,HTC EVO,LG Nitro HD  are some examples.
  3. 8 Mega Pix Camera – 8 Mega Pixel cameras are everywhere ,even the iPhone 4 s has the same mega pixel ,iPhone 5 has a smaller camera ,but it doesn’t make sense from a user’s point of view
  4. Faster A6 processor(claimed) – It is claimed to be very fast ,but definitely cannot compete with the chips inside the Galaxy SIII,Galaxy Note II as those use quad core processors .
  5. Improved battery life (claimed) –Apple claimed that the new iPhone 5 will get 8 hours of talk time, 10 hours of video playback time, and 8 hours of web browsing time over LTE.Compared with iPhone 4s ,which offers 6 hours of web browsing time , the only battery life improvement is in web browsing (other batter usage times are same for iPhone 5 and iPhone 4s).
  6. Small 30 pin connector – iPhone 5 got a small connector compared with it’s predecessors ,As it is a new part there,the speed could be better, but this is still based on USB 2.0 specs, not 3.0 or Thunderbolt.
  7. Audio improvements – It uses 3 microphones ,uses noise cancelling technology ,wide band audio technology,smaller speakers (as the phones goes the slimmest at the moment ) but those are already exists in many devices (  I am not sure the number of Microphones in other devices ,but the quality expected is given )

Apple is lovable for it’s software and apps ,no doubt ,but many Android devices and apps are coming and overtaking Apple in that area too . for instance ,Samsung Galaxy S3 has a much more higher hardware specs and software functionalities . But no doubt that apple will make a great sale ,as it has a huge loyal customers .

if you find any Wow factor on Apple iPhone 5 and think ,it is unique ,why don’t you share it here ? (Twitter – @tecKdiary )
