Apple Brings Major Revamps in its Product Line-up

Yesterday, Apple brought in a few major changes in its iOS product line-up. These changes should not only bring iOS devices to a larger audience, but also will offer more quality.

8 GB iPhone 5c

While it hasn’t been a closed secret that the iPhone 5c isn’t selling well, Apple is desperate to get some attention. Due to that, the cheapest latest-gen iPhone is a bit more cheaper now.

The 8 GB version of the iPhone 5c makes it the first phone in Apple’s line-up since the iPhone 4/4S (quite a while back) to have such an amount of memory.

Of course, lower memory means lower price but that hasn’t been slashed as dramatically. Unlike the 16 GB iPhone 5c, which retails for a mind-blowing 599 Euros, this one will be available for 549 Euros (that’s 75,000 PKR still!).

We’re not sure what is it that will make this phone attractive to anyone but purely an Apple fan, since even the Galaxy S5 and the upcoming new HTC One will launch for much cheaper.

Replacing the archaic iPad 2 with 4th-gen iPad with Retina Display

One of the bitter realities of like is that the iPad 2, that was announced way back in March 2011, was kept on sale for a laughable $399, same as the latest 7″ iPad Mini with Retina Display. 

Thankfully now, the good news for the believers in mankind is that it finally has been axed, in the favour of a much-acceptable 4th-generation iPad, 16 GB version to be particular.

The iPad will be available in both Black and White flavours.

The killing of the iPad 2 has made the number of products using the old 30-pin connector one less.

      if u want iphone for cheap u have to sacrifice something

    Folks, Apple is a brand symbol. by virtue of the face even, 4 yrs old iphone 4/4s (factory unlocked) selling for Rs.30K with just 512mb RAM. People buy apple products for attraction other wise a range of products with higher features available in market by HTC and Samsung.

    • Ubaid

      That is just a misconception, people don’t buy Apple products for attraction. They buy it because it is a stable OS and a lot more safer OS. I am using an iPhone 4 from many years and I have NEVER experienced an app crash on it, I used android for a few weeks and it used to lag and apps used too crash DAILY once or twice.
      Android is the most favorite OS of hackers to attack, while iOS is a VERY SAFE with almost NO MALWARE ATTACK.
      I would compromise UI CUSTOMIZATION and opt for a stable OS.
      And get your facts straight, Apple products have a very low dependency on RAM but on GPU -_-

        Safer OS? REALLY? Dear! iPhones also have Jailbreak, which make them just as hackable as Android (if we were to follow your argument).

        If you are concerned about Malwares then don’t install you don’t know of. People get malwares because of their own stupidity, not because of Android’s “openess”.

        Plus, its not our fault that your Android experience is ruined by your own mistake … of choosing a stupid device. Its funny how people spend huge amounts on an iPhone and then spend HALF of that to an Android phone, just so they can claim how bad Android is. When, its their own stupidness of choosing a slow phone, for their experience.

        Anyway, Benefits of iOS are there. But they are not because of Android’s downfall. Its because of people’s own choice.

        If you really want a brilliant Android experience “NOW” … buy yourself a Nexus 5 and see Android open your eyes.

          jailbreaking isn’t the same as malware and viruses. both are hacks but one is user initiated, controlled & safe while the other is not!
          and by the way jailbreaking is way, way more difficult than rooting droids (or catching a malware). especially since Apple kills it within a month or so (i.e. via a Software Update if you know what that is since your on a droid)

          • abobobilly

            The “difficulty” of Jailbreak has nothing to with the argument. iPhones “are” hackable, contrary to what the person above suggested.

            And i don’t get the hypocrisy. If you consider Jailbreak to be “safe” and “user initiated” … i dread to think what you’d consider “Rooting” to be. Plus, malware and viruses are also user initiated. Uncheck the “Unknown resources” and “Verify Apps (by Google)” option in your settings and lets see how many apps actually “trouble” you with their malware status.

            And nice try about Software Update killing Jailbreak. Apple actually supports jailbreak, so does the law. It can’t kill the jailbreak. If they really wanted to, they would’ve gone against the Devs doing so i.e. the root cause of the problem.

            • QasRoX

              Well the more difficult it is to hack the more secure it is. And obviously everything that is software is hackable so yes even iOS.

              I do know that Jailbreaking and rooting are the same thing. (jailbreaking itself is rooting just a different name) But I meant viruses and malware which are not the same. They obviously are user “initiated” but certainly aren’t user “intended” (or are they?)

              About updates. Consistent software updates close the security loopholes and thus make iOS more safe. As of now there is no way to hack an up-to-date iOS device. We can’t say that about android can we?

      A balanced and very true statement. Respect !!
