iOS7.0.3 download now available


iOS7.0.3 downloadAs I told you earlier in the week, the iOS7.0.3 download to fix all of our bugs and issues is now available to all iPhone and iPad users. The iOS7.0.3 download also includes some new features along with the bug fixes that we are waiting for to solve issues such as iMessage failures.

The update includes new iCloud Keychain and Password Generator support. iCloud Keychain keeps track of all of your account names, passwords and also credit card numbers, these are then accessible across all of your devices and the info is encrypted so cannot be read by Apple. Password Generator allows the Safari browser to suggest hard-to-guess passwords for your online accounts to increase your security. Wikipedia and web search have also been added back in to the spotlight search. Continue reading

iOS 7.0.3 update on its way to fix all our problems?

iOS 7.0.3 updateIt looks like Apples much anticipated iOS 7.0.3 update will be rolled out this week. Rumor has it that iOS 7.0.3 is currently being put through its final tests by employees and Apple partners before being released. Let all of us Apple users hope that this round of testing is far more thorough than the tests that iOS7, iOS 7.0.1 and iOS 7.0.2 were put through before being released riddled with bugs.

What’s new in iOS7?


What's new in iOS7?iOS7 is here, just about, as the Apple servers seemed to struggle with the record numbers of users trying to download the spanking new operating system. So…. What’s new in iOS7?

It may not be to everyone’s taste and iOS6 still looked pretty stylish but from our point of view here at SMCP headquarters, we like it. We gave Apple a few hours for their servers to settle down before we downloaded and it downloaded and installed pretty fast for us, certainly much faster than iOS6. Continue reading

iPhone 5c Features


iPhone 5c featuresAlong with the iPhone 5s handset, Apple did indeed launch the alternative iPhone 5c at their September 10th media event. It was expected to be a budget iPhone but the price and the iPhone 5c features are still very much high end. The iPhone 5c features are impressive (but not quite as impressive of the iPhone 5s). Here’s what was announced at Apple’s worldwide media launch in Cupertino, California.

High end features on the iPhone 5c

Although expected to target the lower end and pay-as-you-go market, the price, iPhone 5c features and specification that Apple announced obviously went against these rumours. Across the industry, we guessed right at the plastic casing and bright colors, although Apple jazzed it up a bit, it’s not plastic, its “hard-coated polycarbonate” (plastic to you and me). Available in 5 color options – lime green, strawberry pink, sky blue, lemon yellow and white, the iPhone 5c features and spec are high end and impressive. 4 inch retina display, widescreen video, A6 processor chip, 8 megapixel iSight camera with 3x zoom and a longer battery life than the iPhone 5.

iPhone 5s Features


iPhone 5s featuresIt’s here! It’s finally here! As with any iPhone release, it has been anticipated, speculated and there have been rumours abound, but the iPhone 5s is finally here. Here is a lowdown on the iPhone 5s features after Apple finally launched it at their September 10th media event in Cupertino.

There’s no doubting that it’s a very sexy looking phone, that’s because it’s almost identical to the very sexy looking iPhone 5, same height (123mm), width (58mm), depth (7.6mm) and weight (112 grams). Apple have also confirmed that the iPhone 5 is now defunct, they will not be making any more and you can no longer purchase it from the Apple website, only the 4s, 5s and 5c are available directly.
