NFC Based iPhone on the Horizon [Rumor]

Before the release of the iPhone 4S, it was rumored to be featuring the NFC chip which is now one of the most touted features on some leading mobile vendors but it didn’t turned out to be. As a matter of fact many were expecting a newer iPhone with a redesign but it was just a steped up version of the existing iPhone 4.

But according to recent  reports from Digitimes Apple is expected to bring the NFC(near field communication) to the next version of iPhone which is expected to hit the markets in 2012.

As Android, Symbian, BlackBerry and Bada have supported NFC (near field communication) functions and Microsoft and Apple plan to make Windows Phone and iOS support NFC in 2012, the proportion of NFC-enabled smartphones will quickly increase from less than 10% currently to over 50% in two to three years, according to Taiwan-based smartphone makers.

So with the competition getting intense with other biggies in the smartphone business try to get over each other this can very well turn out to be a real deal.

[How to] Send Messages To iPhone, iPad or Mac From iCloud

With the launch of iCloud and the “Find My iPhone” feature, you can now send messages to your Apple device. The messages appear in the form of a pop-up window in Mac OS X and a notification in iOS 5. You can also choose to play a pinging sound with the notification, it will repeatedly play at full volume until someone acknowledges the notification, assuring that it won’t be ignored.

You’ll need to have iCloud enabled and have iOS 5 or its new updates on the iPad or iPhone, and OS X 10.7.2 or newer updates on the Mac, and all hardware must be sharing the same iCloud ID.

Siri Communication Protocol Cracked, Expect an Unofficial Release Soon!

There were a lot of rumors floating around about Siri being tested out on the older iDevices by Apple, but Apple soon denied any plans of bringing the Siri voice recognition based system on older iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches.

Though there were some attempts made to port the Siri System to older iPhones but all of them were having some restrictions, most important one being the way the system communicates with the Apple Servers, as officially only the iPhone 4S devices are allowed to use the protocol to communicate with the Apple servers to use the Siri Feature.

But now Applidium, well known for  bringing the open source VLC player on the App Store (which was eventually pulled due to some licensing issues) have reported that they have successfully cracked the Siri Protocol and were able to communicate with the Apple Servers using a computer, that is fooling the servers to get recognized as if the signals were originating from an  iPhone 4S.

Unlocked iPhone 4S Now Available in Apple US Online Stores

Finally after many days in the waiting, Apple has finally started offering Unlocked iPhone 4S for the United States Online Stores along with the roll- out of the next phase of countries in the iPhone 4S roll-out yesterday.

The 16GB version of the unlocked iPhone 4S would cost  $649 while the 32GB and the 64GB version of the iPhone 4S would cost $749 and $849 respectively. All the phones are now being listed with 1-2 weeks of shipping time.

So those who don’t want to go with the standard 2 years contract with a specific carrier can now get the phone for the above mentioned price and can use it over any GSM network, though one have to keep in mind that these phones wouldn’t work with the CDMA carriers but only for the GSM Wireless networks. One would also need an active MicroSIM Card in order to use the phone, since the unlocked version of the iPhone 4S doesn’t come with a Micro SIM Card.

So hurry up and buy the Unlocked iPhone 4S! Seeing the huge demand it’s having, it’s only a matter of days before the shipping time increases from 2 weeks to about a month!
