The original iPhone was launched more than six years ago in 2007 by Steve Jobs. The features in the device like the multitouch screen, the full-featured web browser, the touch screen interface were nothing short of revolutionary, but through seven iterations, Apple has made significant improvements to the already impressive iPhone.
It’s been a week since the next-generation iPhone 5s as well as the colorful iPhone 5c have gone on sale. Despite the iPhone 5s being an “s” upgrade, there are quite a few new features that make the purchase worthwhile, especially for owners of the iPhone 4s or older iPhones.
If you’ve already bought or plan to buy the new iPhone, and planning to trade-in your old iPhone, here are some tips to make sure all your personal data has been wiped off the device’s storage. You’ll be surprised how many people sell their iPhones without doing anything to remove personal data.
Best Buy has launched a new “trade-in to trade-up to iPhone 5” offer today.
Here’s an interesting development. A new group of hackers called UnthreadedJB have just released a jailbreak for iOS 5.1 called UnthreadedJB.
In April 2010, Gizmodo published pictures and videos, which they claimed were of the next generation iPhone. The device reportedly belonged to an Apple employee who lost it in a bar in Redwood City.
What followed was a massive crackdown from Apple as the company filed a case of theft against Gizmodo. Finally, in June that year, Steve Jobs unveiled iPhone 4 at a media event in San Francisco, which looked exactly like the lost iPhone.
According to NDTV, an Indian news publication, Apple has reintroduced the 16GB iPhone 4 in the country.
NDTV claims that they’ve received a confirmation from multiple sources. However, Apple doesn’t seem to have officially announced it. Its website in India also hasn’t been updated to reflect the new storage option.
