Unlock iPhone 5 : How long will it take?

The iPhone 5 is the next big thing people are eagerly waiting for this year. It is undoubtedly the  most awaited product of the year.

The iPhone 5 is rumored to get announced on 7th September according to numerous sources. According to Mac Rumors, Apple is planning to adopt the Pre-Order system this time to manage the excessive demand for iPhone 5.

They are rumored to start taking Pre Orders for the iPhone on September 30th with a launch date of October 7th.

If the pre-order date is accurate and Apple does intend to start allowing pre-orders on Friday, September 30th then it’s almost a certainty that they will hold some form of preview event in early September.

Apple has traditionally held an event in September, but the focus of this event was generally around the iPod, iTunes and music in general. With music-only devices starting to become less important to Apple, it’s certainly possible that Apple will use their September event to focus on the new iPhone. Apple has also pointed to a September release for the new version of its iOS mobile operating system, dubbed iOS 5, and with the updated iOS now in its fifth beta it’s likely to be released alongside the next iPhone.

The next big question remains is whether or not Apple will sell the iPhone 5 as a Factory Unlocked device or how to unlock iPhone 5. Reports strongly suggest Apple will release a global iPhone 5 with support for both GSM and CDMA. This makes sense for the to launch a carrier unlocked iPhone 5.

If for some reason theres no factory unlocked device at start, expect anywhere between 1 month to 5 months for hackers to bust open the iPhone 5′s carrier lock security.

Apple now World’s No.1 Smartphone Company

A market analysis firm “IDC” recently published its reports about  mobile market share among various companies.

According to their reports, Apple is now the World leader in providing smartphones gaining a market share of about 19.1%.

It beat the previous smartphone leader – Samsung which now has a 16.2% market share. But with the recent popularity and success of its Galaxy SII handset, it might just make it a close fight in coming 2 months.

Apple posted a 141.7-percent growth in smartphone sales as compared to last year.

These numbers are sure to increase even more for Apple with Apple iPhone 5 launch  less than 2 months away.

An overview of the report can be seen below :

Create a Bootable Lion Install DVD easily

Mac OS X Lion was launched about a fortnight ago. It became the most downloaded OS ever on the 1st day of its release clocking a million downloads.

I had posted before on how you can Install Lion from USB or DVD. Now there’s a simple software based on Apple Actionscript that allows you to do that very easily.

Here’s the official program description:

What is Lion Disk Maker ?
Lion Disk Maker is a small application programmed with AppleScript that you can use with Mac OS X 10.6 or 10.7 to burn a DVD or build a bootable USB key from Mac OS X Lion’s Installation programm.

As soon as you launch the application, it checks the presence of Mac OS X Lion Install in the /Applications folder, or tries to find one using Spotlight. Then, it proposes to build a DVD or create a USB bootable install disk.

To burn the DVD, you’ll need a SuperDrive and a writable DVD (single layer, 4,7 GB). To build a bootable disk, you’ll need a 4GB (minimum) USB or Firewire drive or an SD-Card. WARNING ! The whole content of the drive (including every other volume from this drive) will be erased ! Please backup any data on another disk if necessary.

[Fix] “Click the lock to prevent further changes” not working after Lion Upgrade

All it did after clicking was to change the icon for a split second and go back to the unlocked state.

Well I found the solution which finally fixed the issue for me.
