[How to] Enable Private Browsing on iPad & iPhone with Safari in iOS 5

Do you feel the need to not disclose your browser history to your dear ones?Well now you can do so on your iPhone or iPad having Safari by enabling Private Browsing. This allows you to browse the web without saving a record of browser history, cache, logins, searches, and whatever else would normally be visible to everyone who use your  iOS device.

To Enable Private Browsing you can perform following steps:

  • Tap on “Settings” and then navigate to and tap on “Safari”
  • Under ‘Privacy’ slide the switch next to “Private Browsing” so that it displays “ON”

You can further tweak the Safari privacy by adjusting cookie behavior in the same menu. If you change your mind then, you can disable private browsing by going back to the same menu and sliding ‘ON’ to “OFF”.

If you do any online gift shopping, or a variety of other things on the web that you don’t want your dear one’s to discover, this is a great feature to get used. Other than losing the convenience of saved logins and cookies, there is no harm with leaving private mode enabled all the time.

First Official Music Video Shot From iPhone 4S [Video]

When Apple launched the new iPhone 4S, amongst a few new features, the most talked about after Siri, was its new Camera and the recording capacity.This new camera allowed the users to record high quality videos at 1080p which is an improvement over the already pretty impressive 720p, 5 megapixel camera in the iPhone 4.

The iPhone 4S  has only been on sale for a week, and we’ve already been treated to the first ever music video to be recorded on Apple’s latest smartphone. Music enthusiasts, The Turnback decided to film the video for their new single, Cellophane Sky, using the new iPhone 4S handsets, instead of the usual high-spec cameras. Filmed in full 1080p at the New York nightclub, Webster Hall, the video is believed to be the first made using the iPhone 4S.

The video shows immaculate quality of camera in modern smartphones. A few years back, the cameras in our phones were would never get a decent picture let alone such high quality videos.But days have changed for our better,now with the launch of smart phones which are capable of producing such high quality videos which can easily compete with  point and shoot cameras we take on our holidays, as well as being able to record full HD 1080p video. Not just that if you happen to have an iPhone 4S you can even use iMovie for iOS, making it possible to edit full movies right on your iPhone.

A couple of weeks ago iPhone 4S was released and along with that release we saw the newly changed contract plans for the earlier versions of  iPhones the iPhone4 and iPhone 3GS,with the iPhone 3GS made virtually free of cost with a 2 years contract.

“We continue to bring in more subscribers onto our network with pure data plans,” AT&T Mobility Chief Executive Officer Ralph de la Vegasaid. “18 million, or nearly half of our smartphone subscribers, are on tiered plans with most choosing the higher priced data plan.”

The current status of activations on the AT&T network sees almost 56 % of the activations made for all the iPhone’s combined,that is the iPhone4,iPhone3GS and the newly launched iPhone 4S,with over 1 million iPhone4S activations already.

Apple has known to be quite aggressive when it comes to marketing its products. This time around they were a bit late releasing an ad for its iPhone 4S.

Apple Ads are very popular for their unique style and their high class look just as their products. I have always enjoyed watching Apple ads and even look forward to the next one.

Apple just launched a new Ad for its iPhone 4S titled ‘Assistant’. There’s no surprise that it showcases the most notable feature of 4S – ‘Siri‘!
