About the problems with Home button of iPhone 4 device you all know so I do not think has got to get back into the details because we have previously discussed about them. I still talk about a very simple procedure that get back to life the Home button and a day passed after I tried it and I noticed that it is successful. The method used by me only involve the devices buttons and is not possible to not ruin the device so it is 100% safe and it is working. Follow the instructions below after completing their Home button should work properly:

  • Unlock it, open an application and hold down the Lock / Power to the screen displays the slider to close the device.
  • This technique makes a recalibration of the Home button and after it carried out everything should work normally without problems.
  • Take the hand from the Lock button, then press lightly the Home button and hold it down for 5-10 seconds until the menu disappears and appears on the screen Springboard.

Unofficially it is the technique for recalibrating the Home button and you can repeat whenever you want because you do not like to mess up the device. In my case the above steps have returned to normal functionality of the Home button and I hope that in the future things will stay on that way. Even in case that the button begins to malfunction after a few days / weeks, you can repeat the procedure to revive him. I hope that techniques will be useful.

Although Apple released Mac OS X Lion from a month and a half, has not forgotten the users who using OS X Snow Leopard and the 10.6.9 update will be launched soon, and will include support for iCloud service. The information about the launch of the new version of Mac OS X appears in MobileMe account management but only for those who have made the transition to iCloud. The account management menu iCloud, Apple announced that users will be able to synchronize all data with new service only after installing Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.9 that has not been officially released.

You will no longer be able to sync with this machine because you’ve upgraded to iCloud.

iCloud requires a computer running Mac OS X Snow Leopard v10.6.9 or later for Contacts, Calendars, and Bookmarks.

This is not the first time when Apple has published information about unreleased version of an operating system and in generally does not take long between the discovery of this information and the effective launch of an update. So far Apple tested iCloud only with Mac OS X Lion but probably engineers will “learn” from the feedback on the new operating system to develop a version of iCloud as can be good for Snow Leopard.

In the midst of rumors about iPhone 5 launches with a 4 inch screen, those at DigiTimes are now coming and saying that the iPhone 5 could actually have a 3.5 or 3.7 inch screen. The new device would maintain the shape of the bezel around the edges but will be thinned to allow the inclusion of a larger screen.

The site talks about a fake video released last month on the internet and where it said that a 4.2-inch iPhone screen will not be available but it appears that highly anticipated 4 inch screen will not be included in the device.

According to DigiTimes the new device will have a cover of metal that replacing existing cover of glass in the current iPhone 4 and in terms of hardware specifications we should expect a device like the iPhone 4. Basically now DigiTimes says that the iPhone 5 will not have a chip A5, 8 megapixel camera, etc., although in the past editors asserted the opposite.

Many rumors about the iPhone 5 occurred recently, but very few of them have accurate informations and yet Apple has not announced when it will possible to present the new device. I hope to have an iPhone 5 with a 4 inch screen but it is hard to believe that Apple will make this change.

Starting with iPhone 3GS where it have a system with voice command called Voice Control that allows us to activate various functions through a simple utterance of words in our iDevice microphone. Unfortunately Apple’s system is more than rudimentary at the moment so engineers working on a new one that allows running many more commands than ever before.

Of course we are talking about a patent that describes a system that would be recognize by users with tone of voice and depending on the user, then you can load some system settings and should display some information on the media. Virtually every iDevice could be customized specifically for each user and may display only certain information depending on which user is recognized.

Since Apple is a company that is limited to simple things, the new voice system would be capable of giving us access to functions within some applications. For example, we give a command to run the most played songs in the last days, an order to run a song in iPod application that has a good rating or we could perform a function that normally would require opening an application. Again we have a very interesting patent from Apple but unfortunately I do not think that will find its “home” in any iDevice soon.

Day before yesterday Steve Jobs has resigned as CEO of Apple and many believed that he will leave the company he founded from more than 3 decades ago. In fact Steve Jobs remains at the helm, but he give up on the title of CEO, title that will be offered to Tim Cook. Since everyone sees Steve Jobs went on, rumors began to emerge as the founder of Cupertino say will be present for the last time an Apple conference in September where will be presented iPhone 5 and iOS 5. Those who still believe that Steve Jobs will leave Apple as easily will be wrong. Jobs is the chairman of the Management Board of the Cupertino company, he has access to all projects developed within the company so basically gets the same dominance as far.

Steve Jobs has held in the last six months exactly the same function that will own and now and he will continue to lead from the shadow of Cupertino company in the future we will definitely see it at other conferences of the company to showcase their revolutionary new products . As long as Steve Jobs is healthy will be present at Apple and its conferences. In the future we will see Tim Cook as “front” but Steve Jobs of Apple official will be present at any important moment in the company.
