Apple to activate hidden FM Radio in iPhone and iPod Touch

iphone-fm

The iPhone and iPod Touch have most of the features any Music device should have. But many people missed an FM Radio. Well there seems to be some good news for FM lovers.

Apple was always reluctant to include a FM Radio in their iPod lineup but with the inclusion of  FM Radio in their latest iPod Nanos opened up hopes for inclusion of FM in other Apple devices too.

The current iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G have a FM Receiver Module, just that theres no software to make use of it.

Apparently Apple is waiting for the integration of Apple Music Store and FM App so that users can buy the Song which they like while listening to FM.

This is not the first time that Apple has decided to keep a feature locked, Apple had previously kept some features hidden initially like the iPod 2Gs Bluetooth. It was 10 months later that Apple decided to make use of the Bluetooth feature.

As to how long will it take for the Official Radio.app to launch is best known by Apple itself. We all can just cross our fingers and wait for the Best!

iPod Nano 5G Images Leaked

Apple’s WWDC event is just a few days away now. Apple is said to be announcing its next iteration of iPhone,  iPods and OSX. So it’s quite a major and much awaited event for everyone.

Apple is well known for keeping its forecoming products a tightly wrapped secret until the last moment. But somehow people manage to leak out bits of information about its future products just days before its announcement.

Apple’s also said to be launching a new iPod Nano (5th Gen) which was rumored to include a Digital Camera.

From the leaked image above, you can clearly see a Digital Camera at the back. The specification of the camera are still unknown. The screen features a widened 1.5:1 aspect ratio. Resolution will most probably be the same as previous Nano models.

The Click Wheel is still retained and thus there’s no possibility of this being a Touch based device.

Note : This is to be taken as a Rumor only. There’s no credible source to prove this news.

Chrome coming to iPhone

Google Chrome has already created waves all over the Internet due to its simple design and super fast browsing speeds. Even though Chrome is still in BETA for Desktop Versions, development is still on for its Mobile Versions.

A version specifically made for the iPhone is also planned. Although its not confirmed by Google yet. A WebSite called freechromethemes has put up a page about the Chrome Browser for iPhone.

Apple for one, will surely not allow any 3rd Party Browser to run on its device. So there’s a strong possibility of this news being just a fake rumor.

Lets wait and watch….
