iPad Revenue To Increase As Apple Readies Next Generation iPhone And Mac Books

iPad Revenue To Increase As Apple Readies Next Generation iPhone And Mac Books

Apple's iPads are selling like hot cakes. With in 10 days of its launch, Apple had sold 3 million units of iPads. iPads are generating a huge income to Apple and its stake holders. It is estimated that iPad will contunue reaping profits for the next two quarters while Apple prepares to launch next-generation iPhone and MacBooks.

The above estimation could be plausible as Apple is launching iPad in almost evey popular city of the World. Apple's market is growing stronger day by day and the credit goes to the new iPad which features Retina Display which gives an amazing UI to play with, hi quality texture and crispier text. Retina Display Enhances the photo and video viewing experience.

"We continue to believe that the iPad will cannibalize PC sales and do not believe that Apple needs to launch a compromised “hybrid” product of a Mac with a detachable screen. We believe iPad users will increasingly “dock” iPads to keyboards," - Ben Reitzes (Barclays Capital analyst)

Reitzes refers to recent online rumors that Apple may be looking to create a product to compete against new Windows 8 devices that merge tablet and laptop form factors. The rumors were shot down by Apple CEO Tim Cook, who said during the company's second quarter earnings conference call that while such product was possible, the compromises would outweigh the benefits.

"You can converge a toaster and a refrigerator, but you know, those things are probably not going to be pleasing to the user," Tim Cook

Apple's upcoming product line would be very challenging task as competitors are getting smarter by launching laptops that are ultra thin just like MacBook Air and smartphones packed with amazing featureslike Samsung Galaxy S3.

iPad And Environment - How Green Is An iPad

iPad And How It Effects The Environment

This post is all about iPad reacts with the environment and its effects on the nature that surrounds us. This article is specifically aimed for those individuals and business concerns who are involve themselves in saving the nature and environment. The broad picture of an iPad would be that it is completely safe and if compared with the competitors Apple's iPad contributes nothing but happy smiles to the nature. 

Lets have a look:
Specifically, the CO2 emissions from one iPad equal the CO2 output of a 515-mile drive. And the new iPad is responsible for more CO2 emissions than its older brothers: The original iPad averaged 130 kg of CO2, and the iPad 2 averaged 105 kg. The new iPad emits 180 kg of C02. When you average out the emissions from all 55 million iPads sold (7,590,000 kg CO2), it equals the emissions of 1.2 million cars in one year. - iClarified

High School Kids Use iPhones 3 Times More Than The General Population

High School Kids Use iPhones 3 Times More Than Adults Do

According to a survey conducted by Piper Jaffray of 5,600 U.S. high school students, 34% of own an iPhone, an all-time high in the survey and double the percentage seen just a year ago. Furthermore, 40% of surveyed students indicated that they intend to purchase an iPhone within the next six months.

how to
"In our most recent survey the percentage of teens that own an iPhone came in at 34%, up from 23% in the Fall and 17% last Spring. We believe the meaningful uptick in iPhone ownership among teens may be driven by the cheaper $49 iPhone 3GS (in some cases free). Interest in purchasing an iPhone in the next 6 months rose to 40% (another all-time high vs. our previous surveys). Purchase intent was at 38% in our last survey in the Fall."

iphone for students

In our Spring 2012 survey, 34% of students owned a tablet computer (same percentage as iPhones), up from 29% in Fall 2011 and 22% last Spring. Of those tablet owners, 70% owned iPads, 19% owned Android tablets, and 11% owned Kindle Fires. 53% of iPad owners also owned an iPhone, demonstrating the halo effect of entry devices like the iPhone.

Seems like apple did revolutionized the entire PC era into a post PC era where smart phones and tablets are used more than computers and tablets.

The New iPad 3 Shows Incorrect battery Levels While Charging

The New iPad Continues Charging Even After It Hits 100 %

the new ipad battery issues

This report comes from the President of DisplayMate, Dr. Raymond Soneira. According to Dr. Raymond, he conducted some tests on the revolutionary new iPad to check the retina display. His tests provided a comparison of the new iPad's display with the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4.

apple new ipad 3 battery problem

While running some tests on the new iPad's battery, Soneira observed that batteries do not actually reach full charge when 100% is shown, and takes up to an extra hour of charging is required before reaching full capacity.  Soneira found that the iPad continued to draw 10 watts of electricity for two hours after indicating 100% charge, then began to reduce power for an additional ten minutes until a precipitous decline in power draw signaled the termination of the charging cycle.

Following is the explanation Dr. Soneira gave for The New iPad's Battery Issue :

The charge indicator on all mobile devices is based on a mathematical model of the charge rates, discharge rates, and recent discharge history of the battery. It uses this information to estimate how much running time is left. It’s actually rather difficult to do because most batteries degrade slowly as they discharge and then tend to surprise with a precipitous decline near the end.
So there is something wrong with the battery charge mathematical model on the iPad. It should not say 100% until it stops recharging and goes from the full recharging rate of about 10 watts to a trickle charging rate of about 1 watt. Otherwise the user will not get the maximum running time that the iPad is capable of delivering, which is listed in my article.
Ray Soneira
President of DisplayMate Technologies Corporation
There has not been any official announcement from Apple regarding the battery issues yet but hopefully it will be fixed with a software upgrade.

Apple Launched the new iPad on March 16 and sold over 3 million units in 3 days. This according to Apple was the strongest iPad launch ever.

How To Upgrade Your iPhone On iOS 5.1 Without Updating Your Baseband

How To Upgrade Your iPhone On iOS 5.1 Without Updating Your Baseband - Complete Guide

Earlier this month, Apple released the new iPad along with iOS 5.1 update for iPhones , iPads and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation. You can download and install the latest iOS 5.1 on your Apple device either by OTA update or by connecting your iPhone-iPad-iPod to iTunes and launching update. Some features of iOS 5.1 include Siri in Japanese language and some other minor performance updates. What's not good about directly updating your iOS device to 5.1 is that your baseband gets upgrated too. If you rely on Ultrasn0w unlock then you should never directly update your iPhone via iTunes. In this section we'll take you though the process of updaing an iPhone without updating the baseband so that it can be unlocked.

updating iPhone to ios 5.1 using redsn0w
If you want to create a backup of your iPhone data before upgrading to iOS 5.1 then follow this guide. 

Before we begin with the guide make sure you download and save the following on your desktop.

  • Latest version of Redsn0w : Download link :
  • iOS 5.1 : Download link :
Once you have downloaded Redsn0w and iOS 5.1, place them in one folder for your convenience. Extract the redsn0w archive and you should be able to see 5 extracted files from that archive like the below screenshot.

Launch Redsn0w in Administrator mode by righ clicking on redsn0w and selecting Run as administrator. Once redsn0w is launched, select the second option Extras. In the Extras menu, select custom iPSW and point redsn0w towards the download iOS 5.1 firmware. Check the screenshots below

Once the custom iPSW is ready, you can proceed with updating your iPhone with the following methods.
In the extras menu, select Pwned DFU. This step is very IMP and should be done exactly as mentioned. Its very important to get an iPhone into Pwned DFU mode to install cumtom iPSW. Follow the on screen instructions carefully.

Instructions For Getting Into DFU Mode

  • Switch off your iPhone
  • Hold the power button for 3 seconds
  • Now, without releasing the power button also press and hold the home button for 10 seconds.

Once done, launch iTunes to install the custom iPSW that we just created using redsn0w.
