• Craig Federighi introducing new multi tasking for iOS.
    iOS 7 brought a number of new and refreshing changes to a very mature mobile operating system. Among some of the notable changes is multi tasking. Before iOS 7, when you double tapped the home button, a small bar with icons showed up at the bottom. From there, you had to tap and hold an icon until it began to shake and then peck away at a tiny red minus button on the top right of the icon. Well no more! (Thank goodness!)

    The way multi tasking works on iOS 7 compared to iOS 6 is monumentally different. If you can remember or maybe used WebOS, then multitasking on iOS 7 should be both welcomed and inherently easy to use. However, if you are unfamiliar with WebOS, multitasking on iOS 7 is not as simple and straight forward to use.

    So lets walk through the steps:

    1.  Double click the home button, or if on the iPad, four fingers swipe up. (This is the part that hasn't changed at all from iOS 6 to iOS 7.)
    2. After double clicking or four finger swipe up, a list of cards with a live look at the apps running appears.
    3. Tap and hold in the middle of the card. 
    4. Then take your finger and swipe all the way up to the top of the screen.

    While there are many reports of limited iPhone 5S supply with high turn outs for those wanting to wait in line to purchase the new iPhone, that is not the full story. The new iPhone 5S is packed with an all new 64-bit desktop class A7 processor, an M7 motion chip which is brand new to the iPhone, and the most innovative and exciting feature in the new iPhone, Touch ID.

    By adding all of those new innovations and upgrades on the inside along side the addition of the already popular gold iPhone, this years iPhone 5S looks to be an early success admist many pessimistic expectations that an 'S' upgrade is "boring."

  • While you may have seen this video, this is a perfect reminder of what the iPhone 5C looks like and what it can do. The iPhone 5C is now on sell for $99 for a 16 gig in several colors and $199 for a 32 gig in several colors when signing up for a 2 year contract.

    Here is what one of the iPhone 5C's looks like and should give you a good idea of what to expect if you decide on an iPhone 5C as your next iPhone.
