Still rocking an older and now unsupported iOS device that you just can't bear to put out to pasture? Fear not, Apple has your back with a new option to download the last compatible version of an app that will work on your aging hardware.
A lot of critics out there seem to think Apple has an iPhone problem. Apparently, sales of the trendsetting, outrageously profitable handset are poised to fall off a cliff sometime this year, when the new iPhone disappoints and everyone rushes to get an HTC One or Samsung Galaxy S4.
As far as I can tell, Apple doesn't have an iPhone problem — it has a numbering problem. Since last year brought a redesign, everyone with an opinion expects the 2013 model to be a letdown, a predictable, mid-cycle refresh with minor internal upgrades and few new bells or whistles. Based on little more than its name, you'd think the new iPhone is doomed to fail.
You may have read the rumor that Apple is building a new iPhone model to compete in the low-cost, contract-free market that Samsung pretty much dominates. There are loads of these phones on the market, with lame specs and flimsy enclosures, and it's hard to believe that Apple would ever stoop so low as to make one. But Apple's build quality had less to do with the materials it chooses and more to do with its tremendous attention to detail, even if it means struggling to meet demand.
In the extreme case where you cannot remember your iPhone's restrictions password, you can still recover it if you have a recent backup in iTunes. Note that this will only work if you back up to your local machine, and not to iCloud. Your device must also be running iOS 5 or earlier — this hack doesn’t work with iOS 6.
The persistent rumors of a cheaper iPhone refuse to die, threatening to eclipse even those of Apple's so-called "iPhone 5S" expected in mid-year. But the company may have to make some compromises to get there.
If you woke up to see your iPhone on the "Dan" network this morning, you're not alone -- a glitch on AT&T's network in Pennsylvania appears to be affecting certain models, but the company says it's nothing to worry about.
Say you’re at home or the office, and you need to make a few phone calls. You reach for your iPhone, but you need to conserve battery life since you’re about to run some errands right after you hang up. You could charge the iPhone while talking, but that tethers you to an outlet or a USB port. Miss your landline yet? Maybe just a little?
They say knowledge is power. And that’s true in a metaphorical sense, but when your iPhone is dead, only power is power. Luckily, the battery-equipped Energizer Energi to Go AP1201 (for iPhone 4) and AP1500 (for 3G/3GS) pack quite a punch, perfect for those times when important chunks of knowledge are locked up inside an iPhone with no juice.
iPhone 3GS owners: Don’t look for sympathy from users of the original iPhone or even the iPhone 3G when Apple finally unleashes iOS 5 later this year -- according to a new rumor floating around, the 3GS will be disinherited from running the next iOS.
