iOS6 Is Out Now

I was expecting more from the new update. However, I still haven't managed to check all the new feature available in iOS6. The first thing I did after updating my iPhone to iOS6 was to check the Passbook Application.  Unfortunately Apple still hasn't added the ability to add passes directly to the Passbook! I wasn't able to check the App. There is a website were you can test the Passbook application directly from your iPhone through Safari. It's called the PassSource . I've managed to test the App from my iPhone and created boarding passes and other passes.

iPhone 10 Funny Post

Speaking of the height thingy in my previous post, which is something I didn't like about the new iPhone-5. Check Mashable's recent funny post about the tallest iPhone "iPhone 10" isn't that hilarious!

Apple Officially Announced iPhone 5

Yes it's thinner, lighter & faster, but taller :( which is something I didn't really like about the new iPhone! Why taller ? Maybe Apple just wanted to slightly change the visual appearance to their new iPhone, to differentiate the it from the previous iPhones. Other than that I don't see a good reasons for the extra 0.37 inches in height, and I find the height/size of the previous iPhones much nicer!

iPhone 5 supports the LTE"Long Term Evolution" 4G.  The existing micro-sim cards is no longer compatible with the new iPhone 5! If your carrier do not provide the nano-sim card then you have to wait until they decide to do so! a month? 3 month? a year? who knows! Cutting a Micro-Sim card to Nano-Sim size won't work! Why? Because the Nano-Sim is 15 % thinner than the Micro-Sim cards.  The new iPhone comes with a lightning connector much slimmer than the previous 30-pin connector, and the price range is between $199 and $ 399.  

You don't have to get the new iPhone 5 to enjoy all the new feature available in iOS 6, you still can upgrade your old iPhone (is it really old?), to iOS 6 which comes with a great new app called Passbook a place where you can keep all your stuff organized (Boarding Passes, Loyalty cards, Cinema Tickets, gift cards, etc..) and get instant updates on your flight status, transactions, and other features.  

Online pre-orders starts September 14, and it'll be available at Apple Retail Store on September 21.
