[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.

UltraSn0w updated to Unlock iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 on iOS5

iPhone Dev Team has updated their famous Ultrasn0w software, which will unlock your 3GS & iPhone 4 under iOS 5.

UltraSn0w 1.2.4 is now available, which supports iPhone 3GS and 4G basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04, and 06.15.00. now you want to unlock then only baseband is available is 01.59.00.

To getting things done quickly, user first needs to jailbreak their iPhone, so the only way to get iOS 5 on these devices while preserving the baseband is to use a custom IPSW for upgrade. Ultrasn0w is so far the easiest way to unlock iPhone. All user need is to just install a package on user jailbroken device.

The most important thing is, Ultrasn0w supports only few basebands so be sure that your version is supported & then you are good to go for unlocking your iPhone. Also note that all current iOS 5 Jailbreaks are tethered. Which means you’ll have to re-Jailbreak everytime you restart your device.

To Install it, open up Cydia and Search for “ultrasn0w”.

The only thing you have to deal with is a  popup through which you confirm or deny access, and you’ll be ready to rumble.

iPhone 4S Reviews Are Out

Reviewing the iPhone 4S is in many ways a lot like reviewing the original iPhone 4, except that it’s not. The device, which was just announced at a special event on Apple’s campus, is very much the same phone the company released in June of 2010 — but it’s also something completely new.

The Verge:

The iPhone 4S is a great device for some, but what if you’re thinking of upgrading from an iPhone 4? That’s a tougher call. The phone is faster, to be sure, and has an amazing camera. And of course, you can’t get Siri unless you have a 4S… but I just don’t know if any of those reasons are compelling enough to convince previous buyers to upgrade. The concept is a particularly hard sell for Verizon customers. The gap between this year’s model and last year’s model isn’t as wide as Apple would probably like.

For this review, I returned to the iPhone after a fairly long period of using and testing other devices. Spending a week with Apple’s newest phone, I’m reminded again of just what makes the company’s products so special. It’s not specs, services, or apps. This phone is not perfect. Certainly it can be improved. But there is something here, beyond the screen and CPU, beyond iCloud, something under the surface. Some intangible spark.

Is this the best phone ever made? That’s debatable. But I can tell you this: the iPhone 4S is pretty damn cool.

Techcrunch:

-”The iPhone 4S blows away the iPhone 4 when it comes to speed.”
– “The true killer feature of the device is Siri.”
– “The amount of times Siri hasn’t been able to understand and execute my request is astonishingly low. I’ll say something that I’m sure Siri won’t be able to understand, and it gets it.”
– “Because it uses server-side software to decipher what you’re saying (likely using Nuance-licensed technology), you have to be connected to the Internet in order for Siri to work.”
