Let Your iPhone Live the Dream with a Noreve Case

I’m a sucker for a nice, quality, leather case. But I also like to wear my iPhone on my hip, like a modern day gunslinger. The Tradition case from Noreve suits the bill and offers additional modern conveniences. It’s “no dream” either, considering “rêve” is French for dream! When the case is closed, there are still cutout openings to display the time and to answer an incoming call or swipe to open. This can be a handy feature.

Additionally, for those of us who remember fliphones (and I do, fondly) the front cover flips down and, while dangling, can help redirect your voice into the microphone. It snugly folds back to protect the screen when needed. The buttons, headphone jack and Lightning port are still accessible, regardless.

Noreve Tradition flip case

What I really like about the Tradition case is the optional back fastener for belt clip + metal clip.  Noreve gives you a choice of no belt clip, a plastic belt clip (which is still nicer than most competitors’ plastic clips), and a sturdy metal clip. The metal clip is great because it’s rugged and not spring-loaded, so it’s not likely to fail after repeated use. Instead of using a spring-loaded button to release the phone, you rotate it 90 degrees in one direction and the phone slides out.

The clip is not the only area for customization. A dozen leather exterior colors can be selected, and for an extra charge, the interior can also be selected from dozens of more colors! The leather is top-notch as is the build-quality… everything you’d expect from a fashionable leather goods manufacturer from Saint-Tropez!

Apple will turn to Shazam to let Siri name that tune

Apple will turn to Shazam to let Siri name that tune

Google’s search app on Android can identify whatever song you hear on the radio or in stores, and Microsoft’s Cortana has added that same feature in the Windows Phone 8.1 preview. Apple is set to gain its own music ID system by integrating Shazam with Siri in the next version of iOS.

Bloomberg reports that Apple plans to partner with Shazam so that users will be able to identify songs they do not recognize. Shazam is already available as a standalone iPhone app that can listen to music and identify the artist and title, but Apple wants to make the experience native. According to Bloomberg’s sources, someone with an iPhone would be able to open Siri and ask, “What song is this?” and use Shazam’s power to find it. It’s possible that Apple could then launch an iTunes Radio station on the song or let someone purchase the song.

It remains to be seen how effective the strategy would be for iPhone users, but Google and Microsoft already employ a similar strategy. Shazam already has more 90 million users across all platforms, but its iPhone reach will grow if Apple decides to have it as a built-in feature for all iOS users.

Windows Phone 8.1 Adds Support for Apple’s Passbook Passes

passbook-heroMicrosoft has added support for Apple’s Passbook passes in Windows Phone 8.1, which was released today as a developer preview. Microsoft announced this latest version of Windows Phone earlier this month and equipped the mobile OS with digital assistant and Siri competitor, Cortana.

As noticed by Tom Warren of The Verge and reported by iMore, Microsoft has created a method that takes the data from a Passbook file and converts it into a card that is imported into Microsoft Wallet.

Passbook passes are just collection of data that get rendered into a card and displayed in Apple’s Passbook app. Think of the Passbook files like the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript data that makes up a webpage, and the Passbook app like the browser that renders the actual page. It looks like Windows Phone 8 is taking the same data and rendering a similar card out of it, and then pushing that card to Microsoft Wallet.

It is not known whether Microsoft’s system is operating independently of Apple or if the Redmond company has an agreement to convert the data to its own wallet. The service may not support iOS-specific features like Passbook updates and notifications, but the importing of data is apparently accurate.



Passbook debuted in 2011 and was one of the major new apps bundled in iOS 6. The digital wallet permitted companies to store tickets, loyalty cards, coupons, gift cards and more in a centralized location on a user’s iPhone and iPod touch. Apple has continued to update the service, allowing third-party apps to create Passbook passes and adding support for gift cards.

Apple Bringing More Chip Development In House [iOS Blog]

iphone5_imageApple is planning on creating an R&D team to develop baseband chips, which are used to control a device’s radio functions like modulation, signal generation and more, for future iPhones in-house, according to a new report from DigiTimes. The baseband chip is separate from the A7 processor, which Apple already designs with an in-house team.

Apple reportedly plans to form a R&D team to develop baseband processors for use in iPhones to be released in 2015 and will place the baseband chip orders with Samsung Electronics and Globalfoundries, according to industry sources.

Qualcomm is currently the company that Apple acquires its baseband chips from, although they’re produced in mass quantities at Apple manufacturing partner Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company.

Recently, Apple has made moves to bring more chip development in-house, including purchasing chipmaker Renesas Electronics, who creates chips for smartphone displays. It also acquired low-power wireless chip provider Passif Semiconductor, whose chips could be used to improve battery life in wearables, like Apple’s rumored iWatch.

The moves are a part of Apple’s effort to control its own production supplies and core technologies, and include partnerships like Apple’s deal with GT Advanced, which will provide the Cupertino company with massive supplies of sapphire displays.

What to do if your iPhone is locked?

A passcode is the best protection system for securing the confidential data on your iPhone. But many a times, people fail to recollect their passcode while unlocking the phones to execute different types of activities. Apple software settings allow the users to take a maximum of 6 attempts to enter their passcode in case they have entered a wrong code. In the event of failing to enter the correct passcode for six times consecutively, the device displays the message- “iPhone is disabled”. This can be problematic if you are not well acquainted with some of the most convenient ways to unlock your iPhone to keep going without any obstacles. Here are some of the steps that will help you to unlock your iPhone and get access to it.

  1. If you are new to the iPhone usage it is the best option to sync the iPhone with iTunes. This will help you to ease out the unlocking process. If you have not done it previously you can still sync it to your computer to ensure a safe data transfer so that you do not lose any important file. The sync will ensure a backup of all the contents of your iPhone in iTunes. Connect the iPhone to the computer and then open iTunes.
  2. In order to go to iTunes, you will first need to switch to the DFU mode. To do so, reboot your iPhone by holding the home button and the power button at the same time. Hold it for about 10 seconds. When the Apple Logo appears on the screen, leave the power button but keep holding the home button. This will allow the USB cable symbol, iTunes icon and the “Connect to iTunes” message to appear on the screen of your iPhone. This process should be executed while the iPhone is connected to the computer device.
  3. After the successful completion of the DFU switch mode a message will appear on the computer screen in the iTunes showing that the iPhone recovery mode has been detected. Now you will get two options- You can restore the iPhone to the factory settings option or use the other alternative to restore it from the backup. Now simply click on the Restore button to get your backup data from the computer back on your iPhone.
  4. The process will remove the passcode from your phone completely and you will get all the stored data on your iPhone device. Now you can access your device along with all the contents without any requirement of the passcode. You can also set a fresh passcode if necessary.

Many a times, the iPhone users try accessing the find option for accessing the lock tool and other methods for recovering or removing the iPhone passcode but the systematic changes introduced by the manufacturers do not support the conventional methods any more. Users can also use the iCloud to backup their iPhone contents in case the iTunes recovery method does not work. If the problems persist, you can always contact a specialist in unlocking iphone 4s, such as Apple Iphone Unlock based at Kemp House, 152 City Road, London, EC1V 2NX.
