Android L: 8 New Features in the Next Major Android Release

id has grown from a tiny upstart to the world's dominant mobile computing platform with over a billion active users. Google isn't sitting still, though, and has just unveiled what it calls the most ambitious Android release yet. Currently known only as Android L, there's no dessert-themed codename or even formal version number yet. Android L will release later this year, though an exact date isn't known.
We hope to see new smartphones launch around the same time which take advantage of all the new features, and also updates to existing smartphones. HTC is amongst the companies committed to bringing it to its existing HTC One family, while others should announce support soon.
Here are some of the most exciting new features of Android L
google_io_innovation_google.jpgMaterial design
Android will receive a complete visual overhaul aimed at promoting a consistent experience across Android device sizes and types. The new "Material Design" identity is bolder, more colourful, and more animated. Every transition between screens and every user interaction has been refined, down to the system-wide Roboto typeface and the Android navigation buttons.

Are you excited about Android L?
Screen elements will be able to simulate depth, with automatic shadows and scaling, but will also inherit elements of classic magazine typography and layout. There's more emphasis on simple shapes and consistent actions that lead you from one app into another. Google's new design page offers hints of what is to come.
The change could also be aimed at discouraging third-party vendors from developing custom Android overlays which greatly deviate from Google's vision. A strong enough core UI experience could lead users to reject anything seen as inferior to it.
The Material Design identity integrates elements of responsive Web design and will extend to other Google properties including Gmail, which will be redesigned for the Web as well as mobile apps. Material Design takes into account the fact that touch, voice, mouse and keyboard are all equally important input methods, clearly illustrating goals above and beyond smartphone usage scenarios.
google_io_desgin_google.jpgImproved notifications
You will be able to interact with notifications more easily in Android L. For starters, you can choose which ones show up on the lock screen and what amount of detail they'll show. You can decide whether snippets of actual messages are displayed when your phone is potentially visible to others, or whether more details will only be revealed when you unlock it. They also aren't necessarily displayed in chronological order anymore - the OS can learn which ones you're more likely to respond to urgently and prioritise those.
There's also a new type of notification altogether - Google calls these heads ups. These appear on top of whatever you're doing and allow you to take action or dismiss them immediately. These are meant to be less intrusive, and can be used for things that can't wait, such as incoming calls.
Trusted environments
Speaking of the lock screen, you'll soon be able to have your phone detect when it's in a trusted environment, which will dispense with the lock code. This could be triggered by the presence of a Bluetooth device such a smartwatch that you wear all the time, a specific Wi-Fi access point, or other factors. When the environment is deemed safe, you won't have to bother with unlocking your phone.
android_l_notifications_google.jpgProject Volta, battery improvements
Android L will be able to manage battery life much better, but Google's moves go beyond that to the app development stage, for which new tools have been developed that let developers track battery drain and optimise apps before they ever reach end users. The battery saver mode is similar to those implemented by third parties so far - non-essential services can be turned off or made to run only at intervals in order to save power. Android L will also be able to lower the screen refresh rate, reduce the frequency of data exchanges, or force apps to change their behaviour to match the prevailing battery state.
Google Fit
Everyone's getting into health and activity tracking, and Google is no exception. The new Google Fit framework will take Apple's Healthkit head on, tying into sensors on phones themselves as well as connected accessories to collect data which will be ready for apps to use. Major partners including Nike, Adidas, Runkeeper, HTC, Asus, LG and Motorola are already on board. Google Fit could monitor physical activity and food intake as well as health indicators such as heart rate and breathing.
Greater Web integration
There's also a change to the way individual tabs and documents in apps are handled by Android L. They'll now show up as individual entries in the Recents menu, allowing users to jump directly between them. This pulls the focus away from apps and puts it onto all the things you do with them. For example, Web apps open in Chrome tabs would appear much like native apps running on your device, and you'd be able to jump in and out of them more quickly.
google_io_web_google.jpgLinks on the Web can now also be used to launch apps instead of websites (presumably falling back to the website in case the app is not installed). For example, Google demonstrated looking up a restaurant in Chrome and then tapping a link to not only launch the OpenTable app, but also have it know that it should bring up that restaurant's booking page. Google search results can also now be links that trigger an app, rather than links to websites.
ART Runtime and Android Extension Pack
Google is ditching the Dalvik runtime which has served well for years, in favour of a new one called ART. It can make apps load and run quite a bit faster while using less RAM. ART is 64-bit compatible, and is also engineered to allow apps to work across hardware architectures such as ARM and X86. This also means that Android devices will be able to address more RAM than the 32-bit limit allowed.
With greater diversity in Android hardware obviously envisioned for the near future, the move is a welcome change. Google has worked with major hardware vendors to enable more fluid graphics, potentially paving the way for new Android-based game consoles and set-top boxes. Desktop-class graphics including tessellation, geometry shaders and texture compression will potentially be possible on Android devices.

Retina MacBook Air release date rumours

In this 2014 MacBook Air with Retina display release date rumours article we aim to bring you everything we know about Apple's Retina MacBook Air release date so you'll know exactly when the new Retina MacBook Air will launch. We'll also be examining the rumours circulating the web - and we'll assess whether they are credible. Finally, we will show you any Retina MacBook Air images that surface online. So check back here regularly for the latest new MacBook Air with Retina display speculation.
Last updated 22 July 2014 with news that Intel is shipping Broadwell chips to its customers, but apparently these are the wrong Broadwell chips, so the new Retina MacBook Air might still be delayed...

We've been awaiting the launch of a new MacBook Air for some time - while Apple only recently made a few tweeks to the MacBook Air line up, this was mainly to reduce prices, the processor bump was very slight. What people are really waiting for is a new MacBook Air with Intel's Broadwell processor, and a Retina display.
The good news is that despite rumours of major delays, Intel has confirmed that it is finally shipping the Broadwell chips to its customers, like Apple.
In a conference call about Intel's second-quarter results on 15 July, Intel's chief executive Brian Krzanich confirmed Intel’s hardware partners will have Broadwell systems on store shelves in the run up to Christmas. He said: "We said we would have products on shelves for the holiday season and we continue to work with our partners and we’re on schedule to have product on shelf in the holiday."
However, anyone awaiting the new Retina MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac and Mac mini should note that there are various Broadwell chips being developed by Intel, and the chips that Intel confirmed are shipping now are the M variety, destined for fanless two-in-ones. The new MacBook Air is likely to use the U Broadwell processor, which may not ship until 2015.
When it does ship, Broadwell, which uses the 14nm manufacturing process, should make the Retina display MacBook Air possible. It is said to consume 30% less power than it's predecessor Haswell, and that should be good news for battery life on the portable Macs, especially those with power hungry screens.
The news will disapoint those who have been waiting for updates to Macs for so long. We are sure that Apple is equally frustrated with Intel.
Shipment of Skylake – the successor to Broadwell which will offer even more power than that chip - is also delayed.
Reports in mid June also suggested that Apple's will begin production of a 12-inch MacBook Air in the third quarter. According to DigiTimes, Quanta Computer is set to begin production of the new 12-inch MacBook Air in July. This may have started, if the Intel chips have arrived.

What evidence is there for a smaller MacBook Air with a Retina display?

Rumours about a Retina MacBook Air with a smaller display have been circulating for some time. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested back in October 2013 that Apple will launch a 12-inch MacBook Air in 2014. Kuo suggested that this new MacBook Air would have an entirely new design.
Then back in January 2014, Evercore Partners analyst Patrick Wang predicted that a 12in MacBook/iPad hybrid would launch in the autumn of 2014. It is possible that the rumoured Retina display MacBook Air could be this Mac.
Canalys analyst Daniel Matte also believes Apple will add a Retina display to the MacBook Air this year.

Didn't Apple already introduce the 2014 MacBook Air?

Apple unveiled the latest update to the MacBook Air on 29 April 2014.  Quietly updating its MacBook Air line-up with improved Haswell processors from Intel. You can read our review of the 2014 11in MacBook Air and the review of the 13in MacBook Air here.
Aside from the small processor boost and a tiny battery life tweak, the main change for the new MacBook Air models was the price. Each model is now under £1,000, with prices starting at £749, £100 less than the previous models. This helps keep the MacBook Air an attractive option for customers, as the previous price was not much different to the price of the new MacBook Pro with Retina display.
The range update came as some surprise as the Retina display for the MacBook Air rumour was already in circulation. Prior to the MacBook Air update in April, there were suggestions that the new MacBook Air with Retina display could launch at WWDC, but this was obviously not the case.
Read our 5 reasons to buy a MacBook Air and 5 reasons NOT to buy a MacBook Air.

Why is the Retina Mac delayed?

Following the launch of the new MacBook Air models in April 2014, it's more likely that Apple will wait until later in the year to show off an all-new model, one that many expect to have a Retina display and possibly a smaller form factor.
Another reason for the delay in introducing the new machine may be that Apple wishes the new MacBook Air to feature Intel's new Broadwell chip (the successor to Haswell). The Broadwell processor has been delayed due to manufacturing problems so the new Retina MacBook Air may be delayed even further. As we mention above, Intel has announced that it is finally shipping these chips to its customers.
Intel revealed in their financial results last October that Broadwell was delayed due to a manufacturing defect in the new 14-nm process being used for the Broadwell chip. Due to this Broadwell won't launch until the second half of 2014 - a quarter later than originally planned. Intel CEO Bryan Krzanich now seems more confident about the Broadwell timescale, telling Reuters in May that he expects to be able to deliver in time for the holidays (e.g. Christmas) but not in time for Back to School (e.g. August).
So it looks like we will start to see Broadwell chips appearing in machines from September to early December.
Watch our videos: 5 reasons to buy a MacBook Air & 5 reasons not to buy a MacBook Air. First up... Why buy a MacBook Air: 

Will the new MacBook Air have a RetWill the next MacBook Air feature a Retina display? It is possible, although it could equally be the case that there is no Retina display, with Apple opting to instead keep prices down and offer the new MacBook Air at a lower price.
However, according to some reports the MacBook Air is currently let down by its display, which has a lower resolution than the competition.
Canalys analyst Daniel Matte has written a blog claiming that Apple will add a Retina display to the MacBook Air this year. He expects that we will see a 11.88-inch model with a resolution of 2,732x1,536 pixels, the same 264ppi that the iPad Air offers. He explains the significance of Apple using the same display technology for the MacBook Air and iPad Air, stating: "It turns out that an ~11.88” Retina MacBook Air with a 2732 x 1536 resolution happens to have the exact same pixel density as the 9.7” 2048 x 1536 Retina iPads: ~264 PPI. It would make sense for Apple to take advantage of the same display technology it has been utilizing for the 9.7” iPads by cutting their panels to this larger size."
Rumours also claim that the new MacBook Air Retina display could have a resolution of 2,304 x 1,440 for a rumoured 12in display (discussed below). That's 226 pixels per inch, compared to 227 pixels per inch for the 13in MacBook Pro (which offers 2,560-by-1,600 resolution). This adds up to a 16:10 aspect ratio like that found on the 13in MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models, rather than the 16:9 aspect ratio currently offered by the 11in MacBook Air.
The current 11.6-inch MacBook Air offers a 1366 x 768 pixel display.

The rumours of a MacBook Air with Retina display have been long running. Back in February 2013, rumours suggested that Apple was planning to launch a revamped MacBook Air with a Retina display in the third-quarter of 2013. A separate report in March 2013 also claimed that Apple would introduce a Retina display to the MacBook Air in 2013. Since this didn't happen in 2013, it is perhaps likely for 2014.
Apple does appear to be moving the whole of its range to Retina display. The company updated the Retina versions of its MacBook Pro in 2013, and also introduced a Retina iPad mini in October 2013.
Wondering what the Retina display fuss is all about? Read: What is a Retina display?
Apple may use the IGZO display technology for the new display – offering improved power efficiency. The reason for the supposition is that Apple was recruiting for a engineers with experience in LED backlighting and LCD displays, in February, according to CultofMac. In an LCD display the bunches of pixels with wires running behind to connect them. The backlight has to shine though this mesh of wires to light up the pixels. In an IGZO display more light is able to shine though this mesh of wires, so the power requirements are lower, and battery life can be preserved. As a result we could see even longer battery life than the 12 hours currently on offer from the 13in MacBook Air.

New MacBook Air rumours - new smaller 12in model

According to a DigiTimes report in June, sources claim Apple wishes to introduce a smaller MacBook Air to make clearer the distinction between the 11-inch MacBook Air and the iPad Air with its 9.7-inch screen.
However, the same sources claim Quanta Computer will be building a rumoured 12-inch iPad later this year.
Canalys analyst Daniel Matte also believes Apple is working on a new version of the MacBook Air - one with a 11.88in screen. Other rumours place the screen size at 12in (which probably matches Matte's expectations).
In his blog Matte seems to be suggesting that there may only be one MacBook Air - this new 12-inch model, with the 13-inch model being phased out in favour of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested back in October 2013 that Apple will launch a 12-inch MacBook Air in 2014. Kuo suggested that this new MacBook Air would have an entirely new design.
The smaller 12in model could still accommodate a reasonable sized screen and keyboard if it had a smaller bezel.
If true, the 12in rumour also means that Apple would only need one Retina panel for the MacBook Air, rather than two.

New Retina MacBook Air release date - will the MacBook Air be an iPad Pro?

There are also rumours that Apple could launch a 12in iPad, but this might not arrive until 2015, or the rumours could relate to the 12in MacBook.
There are also rumours that the new MacBook Air merge with the iPad to create the iPad Pro. You can read more about the iPad Pro rumours here.
We think that a MacBook Air that offered a dual boot system for iOS 7 and Mac OS X would be very interesting, however, Tim Cook last year ruled out any kind of convergence suggesting that a Toaster Refrigerator wouldn't work.

New Retina MacBook Air rumours - smaller and lighter, changes to trackpad According to Chinese site, Weiphone, the new MacBook Air will be thinner and lighter, a feat it will achieve by removing the fan (discussed below) and the clicking mechanism in the trackpad.
The new 12in model will drop the trackpad and introduce "force and optical sensors" and new touch gestures, according to this report from BEN Latest News.

New Retina MacBook Air rumours - broadwell processor, fanless design

One way that Apple could make the MacBook smaller is by removing the fan. Apparently the fan assembly is the reason why the MacBook Air is thicker at one end than the other.
Removing the fan assembly would enable Apple to make the laptop thinner than ever, according to reports.
Presumably there will be some sort of cooling system built in, however that my not be necessary. The Intel Haswell processors are said to be efficient enough to make the removal of the fan feasible – indeed there are already laptops on the market that do not feature a fan.
If Apple uses the new Broadwell processor in the MacBook Air, it should enable a fanless design for the smaller (up to 11.6in) laptop or mobile device, notes Motley Fool, based on what Intel said at its developer forum in 2013. It could also offer thermal scaling and thermal management.
The advantage of a fanless design would also be quiet operation. Another benefit of having no fan is that there would be no moving parts (therefore less likely to break), it could also offer higher battery capacity because a bigger battery could be used.
Other features of the Broadwell chip are that it is low power and offers integration with WiDi, 4G WWAN, and WiGig networks.

Will the old non Retina MacBook Air remain?

If Apple launches a 12in MacBook Air, will it discontinue the existing models? It's possible that if Apple launches a 12in Retina MacBook Air model it will discontinue both, or either of the existing models. Equally, Apple could maintain one of the existing models as an entry-level model. It seems more likely that it would keep the 11in model on at an even lower price, rather than keep on the bigger 13in model.
One reason why Apple may keep a lower-priced MacBook Air on is the fact that Apple has just introduced a new entry-level iMac and already the MacBook Air looks superior to that, despite costing less. If Apple wants a low end option, it would appear unlekely that the Retina MacBook Air would be it.
Read our review of the new £899 iMac and see how it compares to the MacBook Air.

New Retina MacBook Air price

As mentioned above, in 2013 Apple introduced a new lower entry price for the Retina MacBook Pro. With very little difference in price now between the Retina MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air, it looked likely that Apple would soon reduce the price of the MacBook Air.
When it first launched in October 2012, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display started at £1,449. This was reduced to £1,249 a few months later when the range received a processor upgrade. Now, with the April 2014 update to the MacBook Air, the entry-level price of the 13-inch model is a much more compelling £999 which makes the difference between the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display and the 13-inch MacBook Air £250 rather than £150.
The MacBook Air pricing now starts at £749 for the 11-inch model, down £100 from last year's model.
In his predictions last year, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that the price of this new 12-inch MacBook Air model could be lower than the current line up of Mac laptops.

The new MacBook Air might not use Intel chips

This rumour has been floating around for some time. It is possible that Apple will ditch the Intel processor in its range of laptop in favour of its own home-made A-series chips, like those found in the iPad and iPhone.
Some have even speculated that the new MacBook Air could mark some sort of crossover between the iPad and the MacBook, perhaps an iPad Pro.
However, rumours that Apple will move from Intel to ARM chips seem unlikely, based on this explaination from Cult of Mac.

The new MacBook Air will be solar powered

Ok, so this is a bit of an out-there rumour, but it really is possible that Apple will one day release a new MacBook Air with a solar powered display.
In January 2013, Apple was granted a patent that described a method for harnessing sunlight to illuminate a MacBook's display. This patent is actually the seventh solar-related patent Apple has gained in the past two years.

New Retina MacBook Air leaked images

At present, there are no new MacBook Air leaked images to share with you, but we will update this story as soon as one surfaces on the web.
So far the only concept images we have seen are these... Perhaps inspired by the Mac Pro, or the Space Grey iPhone 5s, there are calls for a black version of the MacBook Air. TUAW has provided some renders of how such a MacBook Air could look.

How to find out your iPhone (or iPad) UDID

What's a UDID? How do I find out my iPhone's UDID?
How to find your iPhone's UDID
From time to time you'll need to find out the UDID for your iPhone (or your iPad). In this tutorial we show how to find out your iPhone or iPad's UDID, as well as what a UDID is and what you might need a UDID for.
(For the answers to similar tech jargon related questions, try Macworld's glossary of tech terms.)

How to find out your iPhone’s UDID: What is a UDID?

UDIDs are identifying numbers that are unique to individual iPhones and iPads (and iPod touch devices, for that matter). They're 40 characters long, and made up of a mixture of letters and numbers.

How to find out your iPhone’s UDID: What do you use an UDID for?

The most likely situation you'll need your iPhone's UDID for is if an app developer has offered to let you try out some unreleased software. (As an app reviewer I'm occasionally asked for my Apple devices' UDIDs.) With a relevant UDID, a developer can register your device and give it access to non-official (non-App-Store-vetted) software. This is commonly used to let reviewers try out apps before they make it on to the App Store.

How to find out your iPhone's UDID: Is it dangerous to let someone know your UDID?

There's some debate about this, and you'll note in the screenshots below that I've hidden sections of my UDID to be on the safe side. But you should be ok.
What I would recommend is only to give your UDID to an app developer you trust, and to be cautious about the beta apps you agree to install (having your UDID won’t be enough for them to force software on to your device; you'll still need to accept the install). Be aware that when and if you accept (or beta-test) non-vetted app software there is some danger that it won’t work or cause unexpected effects - not necessarily as a result of malicious action, of course.
App developers are allowed a limited number of UDID registrations (these are effectively requests for permission from Apple to bypass the normal App Store download process) so it wouldn't make for a very efficient spam or malware dispersal mechanism; and the generally solid sandboxing between apps in iOS 7 and earlier makes it difficult to cause too much damage from a single app install - difficult, but not impossible.
(iOS 8 will see more intercommunication between apps, although even then we are assured that apps will have to seek permission from iOS itself to ask for information from other apps, making it sound like security will still be strong.)

How to find out your iPhone's UDID

Okay, this bit's really, really easy.
1. Plug your iPhone into your Mac, and go to iTunes (or start it up if it isn't already open).
2. Select the iPhone's icon at the top-right corner of the window, underneath the search box. (If you've got more than one iOS device plugged in, this button will say '2 devices' instead - press it and then select the iPhone.)

3. You'll now see the iPhone's summary page. (If it's showing apps, podcasts or whatever, select Summary from the top bar of tabs.) You can see the iPhone's capacity, phone number and serial number in the top box; click on the serial number and this will change into the UDID.
How to find your iPhone's UDID

4. After the serial number changes into the UDID, pressing Apple + C at the same time will copy the UDID to the pasteboard. Alternatively, right-click it and select Copy.
How to find your iPhone's UDID
5. Find a blank document and paste the UDID into it by pressing Apple + V.
That's it - easy.

How to find out your iPad's UDID

For an iPad the process is almost exactly the same - just pick the iPad option from the dropdown menu if you’ve got more than one device plugged in.
1. Plug your iPad into your Mac, and go to iTunes (or start it up if it isn't already open).
2. Select the iPad's icon at the top-right corner of the window, underneath the search box. (If you've got more than one iOS device plugged in, this button will say ‘2 devices’ instead - press it and then select the iPad.)
3. You'll now see the iPad's summary page. You can see the iPad's capacity and serial number (but not phone number, of course) in the top box; click on the serial number and this will change into the UDID. (Clicking again may produce further identifying numbers - see below)
4. After the serial number changes into the UDID, pressing Apple + C at the same time will copy the UDID to the pasteboard. Alternatively, right-click it and select Copy.
5. Find a blank document and paste the UDID into it by pressing Apple + V.
The top box of the iPad's Summary tab doesn’t have a phone number, of course. It just shows the capacity and the serial number. Click the serial number, as before, to change it into the UDID, and press Apple + C or right-click and select Copy.
One difference you may find with cellular-equipped iPads (rather than WiFi-only models) is that when you click the UDID it won't go back to the serial number right away; it'll cycle through various other identifying numbers: Mobile Data Number (unknown, in my case), MEID, IMEI and ICCID. Finally it goes back to serial number.

What to expect from Apple’s A8 chip

 |Macworld UK
What to expect from the new Apple A8 CPU found in the upcoming iPhone 6
What to expect from the new Apple A8 CPU found in the upcoming iPhone 6

The Apple A8 processor is expected to arrive this year alongside the iPhone 6. This feature looks at what features we can expect from the Apple A8 chip.

The iPhone 6 is expected to be announced within the next ten weeks and inside the iPhone 6 is expected to be an all new Apple A8 processor. The Apple A8 chip will sit in the heart of the new iPhone and next-gen iPad and will offer improved performance across the board. While many people have talked about the iPhone 6 itself, few people have crystal-gazed into the innards of the iPhone: so here is what we can expect on the technical side of things. Here we take a look at what Apple is expected to introduce with the Apple A8 system-on-a-chip (SoC).
See also:

Apple A8 chip: next-gen iPhone CPU will be faster and more efficient

Apple A8 CPU found in iPhone 6
Apple has consistently pushed the envelope forward with each iteration of iPhone. The first iPhone featured a 90nm semiconductor running at 412 Mhz utilizing a single core. By the time, the Apple A5 came out (alongside the iPad 2) Apple had halved the semiconductor size to 45nm and was running a 1.0GHz dual-core CPU. Each iteration since has reduced the nanometer size (from 45nm to 32nm and 28nm) and increased the speed.
The most recent Apple A7 chipset was introduced in October 2013 and features a 28nm semiconductor with an ARMv8 dual-core CPU running at 1.3GHz on iPhone (1.4GHz on iPad) and a PowerVR G6430 450 MHz graphics chip. The Apple A7 processor also introduced the first ever 64-bit channel CPU to a mobile device. The iPhone 5s and iPad Air both feature desktop-level performance.
So we can expect Apple to push forwards into a more space and power efficient design while simultaneously trying to increase the speed of the processor.
Apple is expected to move from Samsung’s 28-nanometer node to a TSMC 20-nanometer node. This 20nm node is a substantial size reduction of the chipset that will enable Apple to introduce a range of performance improvements.

Apple A8 chip: how many cores will the Apple A8 have?

Apple’s current range of iPhone and iPad devices utilize a dual-core chip setup, and while Apple could move to a quad core setup in the iPhone 6, most analysts believe Apple will instead stick with a dual core heart of the iPhone and iPad and focus on faster performance.
Apple has consistently been ahead of the curve in terms of performance on mobile devices, and we think better gains are found in current iOS software from keeping two cores running at a faster speed than introducing extra cores. But efficient core utilisation depends on the corresponding software support, and Apple may have developed software that makes use of a multi-core approach.

Apple A8 chip: what speed will the Apple A8 CPU run at?

Apple is expected to include two high performance ARMv8-based CPU cores. The current CPU in the iPhone runs at 1.3 GHz so we expect at least 1.5GHz in the iPhone 6. Sonny Dickson (who accurately reported details regarding the iPhone 5s) speculated that the CPU speed will be higher, much higher, with figures up to 2.6MHz being bandied around.
This higher CPU speed would sit well alongside the 64-bit performance introduced with the Apple A7 to reinforcing the idea that the iPhone and iPad offer desktop-level performance. It seems a little high to us, but with a larger case of the iPhone 6 it could theoretically be possible.

Apple A8 chip: next-gen iPhone GPU graphics performance

Alongside the faster performance of the CPU will come improved graphics performance. Apple has consistently upped the ante on graphics performance with every iteration of Apple A-series chipset. Apple could take the Imagination Technologies PowerVR G 6430 found in the iPhone 5s up to the PowerVR Series 6 G6630, this offers modest improvements across the board. Or Apple could jump ahead to a PowerVR Series 6XT GPU, which offers major improvements across the board. We imagine Apple has tested both graphics systems out and will plump for the one that balances the best graphics performance balanced against heat dissipation and battery life.

Apple A8 chip: how much better will it be

We expect the Apple A8 chipset to be substantially better than the A7 found in the iPhone 5s. Just how much better depends on which rumour is correct: the 2.6GHz blazing update with PowerVR Series 6XT GPU or a more modest CPU speed increase combined with a moderately better GPU. It isn’t always better just to crank up the dials; Apple also has to balance battery life, device size and heat performance alongside the technical specifications. If you’re just after raw numbers then you would be better off paying for a MacBook Pro instead of an iOS device, which has a more nuanced approach.
Going by Apple’s history and from the rumours across the board the follow ‘consumer friendly’ announcement sounds about right.
  • Apple A8 CPU performance. 50 percent faster performance from a higher clock speed (made possible by the 20nm process).
  • GPU performance. Twice the graphics performance from the implementation of a new chipset.
And if Apple announces that alongside other new features in the iPhone 6 the company will continue to stride ahead of Android rivals while still providing a great all-round mobile experience.

Apple’s Recent Hires throws more light on iWatch

One of the most anticipated wearable device for 2014 is probably the iWatch from Apple. Although there is no clear information on Apple’s new iWatch, we reported that iWatch has already entered production and will be most probably released in September this year. Now we have some more details coming in from Apple’s recent hires.
Apple has been building a team of senior medical technology executives probably from the biotechnology community and this could be for the expected iWatch and other wearable technology coming later this year. What’s interesting here is that Apple has hired more than a dozen prominent experts in biomedicine which means the iWatch could be focusing on health. We also reported that iPhone 6 Earpods might come with Heart rate monitor and blood pressure sensor.

Most of these new hiring’s are in the sensor technology hinting at bio sensing options in iWatch. Industry insiders say this moves have a vision of monitoring everything from blood-sugar levels to nutrition, beyond the fitness-oriented devices now on the market.
Apple is also under tremendous pressure since there has been no new products since launching the iPad back in 2010, so expect a major device from Apple this year. A mobile health executive who talked with the Apple executive from the iWatch team said that the company has aspirations beyond wearable devices and is considering a full health and fitness services platform modelled on its App Store.
Apple has hired experts (biomedical engineers) from companies including Vital Connect, Masimo Corp., Sano Intelligence, and O2 MedTech, so we are sure to see a wearable which is related to health from Apple this year.

How To Increase Google Page Rank - SEO, Backlinks and custom Robotics

How to increase your traffic to your blog very simply and easily
1).First on google you search blogger Login

2)Sign in to blogger
3)dropdown menu Settings
4)Meta Tags
5)changing Robot tags. no index

Traffic is one of the most important parameters for your blog; the more people who find your blog, the people who will read your ideas. If you're ready and willing to have your blog admired in the online community, then try a few different methods of increasing blog traffic. You'll create better content in the end, and probably have dozens of new viewers each day

Choose a catchy and descriptive title. The title of your blog is one of the first things that readers will see and one of the factors that search engines use to determine what your blog is about. The title of your blog should let readers know right away what your blog is about. It should be easy to remember, not too long, and not too similar to another website's name.

Focus on your design. The first thing people notice when they visit your blog, is the way it looks. And although the old adage goes that one shouldn't judge a book by its cover, the same isn't always true for a blog. If you want people to stay on your blog, you've got to hook them with an eye catching design; once they're interested in the appearance, they'll start reading to see what you're all about.

    Create a title/header that matches the theme and content of your blog. A clean, well designed header will tell readers a lot about your blog, and hopefully have them sticking around.
    Keep your color scheme to a maximum of three hues. Too many colors can appear overwhelming, and distract readers from content. Choose at least one or two neutral colors, and one or two bright/bolder colors.
    Create a small logo or image to represent your blog, if applicable. Having a 'brand' will make your blog memorable, and help others to recognize it when they see the logo around the internet.

Adobe Lightroom Goes Mobile

The widely popular software for photo editing and organization, Adobe Lightroom, can soon be accessed right from your Smartphone. If you’re a photographer on the go, or need to organize the millions of pictures you have on your iPad, Lightroom Mobile is for you.

A Portable Extension

Aimed at providing the possibility to work back and forth between your desktop and mobile devices, Adobe Lightroom’s mobile app is essentially a portable extension of the desktop software. Adobe’s Creative Cloud syncs everything you work on in the mobile app automatically to your desktop, which means you can edit and organize your pictures from anywhere in the world.

Subscriptions Required

Although Adobe Lightroom is an app, it still requires you to have a subscription to Lightroom 5 as well as Creative Cloud. The application will include pretty much all the primary editing tools of the desktop version, such as exposure, color, shadows, clarity, contrast and tonal adjustments.

Login And Access

Well-integrated with the PC and Mac versions of Lightroom 5, the app will let you log in with an Adobe ID and work with all the images stored in the desktop version of your account. There is also a Smart Previews option that enables transfer of content between the two versions at a very fast rate.

Touchscreen Differences

Of course, it is rather fun to edit photos on a touchscreen device like an iPad. You can use your fingers to do everything from crop and rotate to applying different filters to your photos.
Tapping the screen with three fingers shows you the before and after frames of editing. History states of your pictures are saved on the cloud as well, backtracking all the way to how your picture looked in the beginning.

Apple Ipad to IOS7

You’re sitting in a coffee shop or maybe even waiting for your flight in the airport when you realize your iPhone is about to die and you have no way of plugging it in. The situation wouldn’t be that bad if you didn’t need to call anyone, but there’s a chance you’ll actually need to make a call. Luckily, your iPad can save the day. While an iPad can’t mimick every aspect of an iPhone, you can at least get by.
Whether your iPhone is almost out of juice or if you simply just left it at home by accident, your iPad can come to the rescue and take over at least some of the duties (although why you would forget your iPhone, but bring your iPad is beyond us). Here are some ways that your iPad can act as a secondary phone of sorts, with the help of both built-in apps and third-party options.
Use an iPad as an iPhone with iOS 7

Get a WiFi + Cellular iPad Model

If at all possible, make sure the iPad you have is a WiFi + Cellular model. In other words, get an iPad that also supports a data connection, like LTE or even just 3G. This will allow you to make phone calls on your iPad from pretty much anywhere, provided that the iPad gets a cellular signal.
If you have a WiFi-only model, you’re stuck to just WiFi networks, which can severely limit where you can make phone calls; you’ll have to take the effort to find a WiFi signal at a coffee shop, airport or public library. Granted, it’s not that hard to find free WiFi, and most places with have it, but you’d also be surprised at how many places don’t have WiFi available.
Cellular-equipped iPad start at $429 brand new from Apple for the 16GB 1st-generation iPad mini, but you’re probably better off buying refurbished from Apple, since it’s practically the same as buying new, with a few minor exceptions. Refurbished iPad minis with cellular start at just $359.

Take Advantage of FaceTime Audio

If you’ve ever used FaceTime, then you know how great it can be for chatting with friends and family, but FaceTime has a feature where you can just use audio during a call to save on bandwidth and prevent any data overages (if you’re not on a WiFi connection, that is).

We have a nifty how-to feature that guides you through the process of making a FaceTime Audio call. The nice thing about FaceTime Audio is that it should offer much better audio quality compared to using traditional cellular phone calling. If you’ve ever had a hard time understanding someone while you’re chatting on the phone, that’s probably because phone calls through cellular towers aren’t that great of quality. FaceTime Audio calls use either WiFi or a 3G/4G data connection, which offers much higher throughput for data, thus better audio quality.

Download Video and Audio Calling Apps

You don’t have to be caged to just FaceTime Audio, though. There are a heap of calling apps available in the iTunes App Store that let you call folks either over a WiFi or data connection. Granted, the iPad won’t offer a completely iPhone-like experience simply because it doesn’t have any cellular radios in it, but you can at least call other folks and receive calls from people who have your username or phone number for various apps.
Skype is a popular option, and a lot of people use it, so it’s a good app to have on your iPad just for the popularity of it. You’ll be able to call phone numbers (including landlines), and friends and family can call you on your iPad if they know your Skype username (and if they’re using Skype themselves). You can also get a dedicated phone number from Skype for $5/month, from which you’ll be able to send and receive calls from anyone from your iPad.
Google Voice is another option, although we’ve discovered is less useful on the iPad than on the iPhone. The service allows you to have your own phone number associated with any of your devices with Google Voice installed on it. However, the latest Google Hangouts update is a better option to use, as it allows you to make calls directly from your iPad if you have a Google Voice number (but you can’t receive them).
Even if you don’t use Google Voice to make phone calls, you can still use it to overhaul your voicemail.

Use a Headset

Do you hate it when the person next to you is talking on their phone with the speakerphone enabled? It might seem obviously rude, but you’d be surprised how much it happens. Don’t be that person and use a headset instead, whether its Apple’s own EarPods or a third-party headset that you buy separately.
With a headset, you can answer and hangup on calls using the in-line microphone’s volume buttons and chat to friends and family without annoying anyone else around you (or at least they won’t have to hear the other end). You could always just use the speakerphone, but eventually you’ll want something a little more convenient.
