Apple's next flagship phone will be called the iPhone 5S

As with the iPhone 5C, mobile phone operator leaks have indicated that Apple is maintaining its current iPhone naming scheme, sticking with the solitary number and variations to denote upgraded iPhone models. Given that the alternative iPhone is highly likely to be called the iPhone 5C, the 5S moniker could be another differentiator for Apple's next flagship phone.

The iPhone 5S will be available in more colours

Ever since the iPhone 3G launched, in 2008, Apple has offered its smartphones in two colours, black and white. Recent part leaks from Apple's manufacturing partners in China have indicated that Apple will launch the iPhone 5S in more colours including a gold, or "champagne", model, which could make sense in terms of Apple's attempt to secure market share in Asia.

Apple will upgrade the camera in the iPhone 5S

It is highly probable, given the competition from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4, with its 13-megapixel camera, that Apple will improve the current 8MP camera from the iPhone 5 to at least 13 megapixels.

The iPhone 5S will have almost exactly the same design as the iPhone 5

Apple has a history of redesigning the look of its flagship phone only every other generation, improving the specifications and inner components without altering the case design on the outside significantly. Both part leaks and previous actions suggest that Apple will stay true to form and release the iPhone 5S with improved insides while maintaining the iPhone 5's design with subtle tweaks.

Apple will build a fingerprint reader into the iPhone 5S

Recent rumours have it that Apple may build a fingerprint reader into the iPhone 5S, possibly under the traditional home button, to boost the iPhone's security credentials. In theory, such an addition could allow password-free…...

... Android users today. As Samsung’s latest flagship phone, it will face substantial competition from iPhone 4s and other smartphone brands. One of the best advantages that the said manufacturer can offer is the S3’s innovative feature which it is a built-in face-tracking and voice control. This smart phone is also the first unit to have a large 4.8-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720p. It is apparently far bigger than iPhone 4S, and close in size to the smaller end of the tablet PCs. As soon as it hit the market, many Samsung Galaxy SIII deals have come out offering the best prices possible for customers. Other innovation includes Samsung’s claim of a “more intelligent” lock system. This feature keeps the screen awake when the phone’s camera detects eyes watching it, instead of turning it off. The Samsung Galaxy SIII deals have indeed gone big on innovation, loaded with so many features that many people didn’t think of. Many Samsung Galaxy SIII deals offer both 16 GB and 32 GB handsets and the colors are either pebble blue or white. The handset is pleasingly non-creaky unlike its rivals such as Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC One X that are a flex-free handset. Despite the popularity of Galaxy S2, the S3 is considered streets ahead of its predecessor when it comes to upgrade. The Samsung Galaxy SIII deals showed that this unit is not quite as slim as the S2 and it lacks bulky look. In fact, it is thinner than HTC One X, iPhone 4S, Razr Maxx, among many others.......

...Arshad Mahmood Word Count: 4, 339 (excluding references) Turnitin similarity score: 1% (excluding citation) SITUATION ANALYSIS iPad-2, Apple Inc.’s new product made it to the international markets on 25th March 2011 after quite a lot of advertisement hype and wait. This invention easily makes the list of the best products in the last ten years or so. The creation is a testimony of the success of Apple Inc. and is centered more on the use from fingertips than the hand. This sustains the road of progress that Apple has obtained after iPod and iPhone. The Economist made an interesting comment on the cover by saying, “The enthusiasm of the Apple faithful may be overdone, but Mr. Jobs’s record suggests that when he blesses a market, it takes off.” It can be inferred that Apple Inc. is doing wonderfully well at the moment. Much of its success can be pointed to the optimization of value exploration, value creation and value delivery. The initial level of value exploration targets the mind of the consumer and also the ability of the company. It also takes into account the resource space as well. On another level, the value creation is centered on getting the profit. Here, the key element includes competency in the paradigm of business and association with business partners. The third level is primarily based on management and is the value delivery. The crux elements include the management of resource, customer relationship and the business partnership. Apple...

The Iphone 5s, Proof That Apple Has Given Up on Innovation

...Let us just, arguendo, accept his point about Apple no longer being innovative. Let us also gloss over the obvious typo about Apple handing out the $100 billion cash pile as well, it’s no where near that amount being returned to investors. So, what is it that we actually want a non-innovative but highly profitable company to be doing with the rivers of cash that it is generating? Why, we want it to be handing that money back to shareholders. Who can then reinvest it or spend it as they please. And we are entirely happy with the money flowing out of that no longer innovative company because we know, as economists or those interested in economics, that almost all innovation in the economy comes from new firms entering the market. For that is the truth of it: Apple’s run of innovation under Jobs is the oddity in the economy. Almost always innovation, new products, new ways of doing things, new methods of organisation, that variety of things that leads to economic growth and the creation of jobs, comes from the creation of new firms and the extinction by their replacement of the old firms. So, if a company is making good profits but has no new great ideas we’d actually prefer them to be paying out dividends. Buying back stock: getting that money into the hands of investors who might then invest in new start ups. We can go further too: if those executives at Apple knew which were the new start ups were that were worth investing in, knew which new technologies or market...

...iPhone 4Gs Many people do not like the new iPhone 4Gs because it is the same as the iPhone 4 but bit a bit more advanced. For example the iPhone 4 has a 5 megapixel camera, run on iOS 4 versions and has many additional updated functions. The iPhone 4Gs had mostly all the same functions but more advanced and some functions were updated. Some functions that were upgraded or added include Siri, the camera and iOS 5. The purpose of this paper is to discuss one of Steve Jobs’s creations, the iPhone 4Gs. Siri is a personal assistant in your pocket. It was made in April of 2010, in California. Siri was always been hands free, so when you talk to it, it will talk back. Siri understands a lot, so when you talk to it, it will understand you. Siri lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings and place phone calls. The only way to get Siri is to buy the iPhone 4Gs, even though you can think that Siri can be downloaded, you are wrong because no one has found out a way to make that happen yet. When Siri thinks you have forgotten something that is important it will speak out loud and tell you what you have forgotten. Even though Siri is a computer based program it can make mistakes. The iPhone 4Gs camera is more advanced then the iPhone 4. The differences in camera are that iPhone 4Gs has an 8 megapixel camera and iPhone 4 has a 5 megapixel camera. The iPhone’s new camera is now the best camera on a mobile phone ever. Comparing pictures from other mobile devices that...

In addition to selling pink products, corporate advertisements may promote the company's progressive policies, or may provide free advertising for a chosen charity. Medical institutions may run advertisements for mammogram or other breast-related services. Non-profit organizations often benefit from public service announcements, which are free advertisements provided by newspapers, radio and television stations, and other media. Some marketing blurs the line between advertisements and events, such as flash mobs as a form of guerrilla marketing.

What Do You Expect

...Courtney Gaylor GS1145 Charles Bozeman January 6, 2015 Most people have no clue as to what they're going to do with their lives and a lot of them do indeed turn out to be software engineers. Most software engineers do their jobs very poorly, many are average and a few are actually good, but everyone has a place in the industry. I am pursuing a degree at ITT Technical Institute in hopes of falling in the category of “actually good”. I feel that what I need to be successful is hands on learning. At ITT I plan to achieve a career, not just to float through life one “job” after another. A goal that I started to attain before leaving high school is developing the ability to see the value in maintaining a positive attitude, regardless of the circumstances. When I include my goal in the curriculum, I have a better understanding on how positive words, positive character traits and positive thinking can impact life immediately now and in the future. Another goal of mine is to be happy. To be happy is the most important thing there is because you only have one life and if you go through it fighting, competing and struggling you have wasted your one life. Being a human on this planet is like winning the lotto and if people would act that way we could all help each other and try to make the time we have not be a waste. I think that's my ultimate goal... I don't know that it's everyone's, if it's THE ultimate goal or even if there is a THE ultimate goal. Also I was thinking that...

...Marketing Apple iPhone The marketing concept has since its discovery been recognized as core to success of any business and more precisely, any product irrespective of aspects such as its manufacturer or cost. Regardless of the economic sector in which a product is introduced, marketing plays a vital role in the product’s proliferation in the market. In this regard, this analysis seeks to present a critical exploration of the role of marketing both for Apple Inc. as a company, as well as iPhone as its product. This breakdown will bring to light a trail of marketing objectives, useable tactics in the various stages of the marketing process, as well as the diverse segmentation techniques all with the intent of boosting iPhone’s success in today’s market. Importance of Marketing for the Organization and the iPhone Product             To start with, modern marketing revolves around the understanding, creating, communicating, and subsequently delivering value and satisfaction to the consumers (Burrow and Jim 6). Deducing from this, marketing will allows consumers to reach products, which they would otherwise have not attained. This is because it facilitates accessibility through channels such as cross-border and international trade. Despite the Apple Company being located in the United States, the iPhone manages to spread to other countries around the world. Through marketing, Apple Inc. will notify the world about the iPhone product through appealing presentations of the...

...At the end of the 2011 fiscal year, Android phones crept just above iPhones in overall sales. Apple had been at the top of the list and unparalleled since the dawn of the iPhone. While there seems to be an ongoing debate over which is better, the iPhone and Android smartphones have many similarities and differences to consider. Apple's iPhone OS and Google's Android OS have many components in common; both are Linux-based operating systems for smartphones, but there are some dramatic differences that make these platforms almost very different. The iPhone's OS is completely closed. This means that it is being developed by Apple and used exclusively for Apple products. The only smartphones that will ever run the iPhone are manufactured by only this one company. Android, on the other hand, is open. This means that it is being developed primarily by Google, and with the help of a group of companies. Many of the members of this group, the Open Handset Alliance (OHA), will release smartphones based on the Android operating system. Some of these companies include HTC, Samsung, and Motorola. There are advantages and disadvantages to both operating systems, and the competition between the two platforms is going to shape the smartphone market for years to come. Both the iPhone and Android platforms offer many similar features that are appealing to the user. Both have a fairly long battery life, single and dual cameras that also take video, easy uploading to Facebook, Twitter,......

... in the notebooks industry. In his article “New iPhone orders boost Apple into Nokia territory”, Wolfgang Gruener states that Apple requests almost 800,000 iPhone units to be produced weekly from Foxconn (Gruener, 2008). The question now could be if Apple will be able to produce in mass in order to fulfill the increase in demand. From an optimistic point of view and what we noticed in their growth pattern, we expect Apple to be able to meet future demand in production for the iPhone. However, only if iPhone continues to grow on the its same pace or higher, it will be able to satisfy the new demand. In conclusion, we can say that the iPhone acting as a substitute to many other products is a prominent change in the U.S. and we project that it will keep increasing within the next 3 years. Smartphones as a “Trend” All the changes previously mentioned are interrelated. One of the reasons behind consumers’ customization fad could be that owning a Smartphone and customizing it has turned into a fashion. Not long ago, Smartphones were for and used by a specific segment of consumers in the business world. Nowadays, most mobile manufacturers are moving towards developing better and trendier Smartphones. Your phone could be your status symbol today, and that is why consumers are always trying to the get the latest innovation. The perception is that being “fashionable” requires owning a Smartphone since something as simple as a phone could reflect your image. It is becoming a way...

What You Least Expect

...Kara McMellon English Composition II 1020XA July 21, 2011 Rewrite of Essay One When You Least Expect It Today the world is hustle and bustle. Everyone seems to think they are the center of the universe. They push their carts into others at the grocery store. They cut one another off in traffic, often followed with a finger suggestion. Just trying to say hi, to be polite the return is a snort or a sneer, and the look seems to suggest the question, ‘what do you want?’ Upon entering a Wal-Mart or Lowe’s, if one wants to ask a question, they will be hard pressed to find a sales person to help. Yes, the world seems cruel and unkind. That is, until this one thing happened and it came to light that people are not always what they seem. I was on a camping trip with a group that I belong to. It was a hot, sultry weekend, so we went and spent time by the shore of the lake we were camped on. I just happened to be people watching and I was astonished by the sight that I saw. My faith in humanness was restored that weekend and it was definitely what I least expected. As the man emerged from the campground, he was boisterous and burly. The tattoos seemed to cover every inch of natural skin. He wore a heavily patched leather vest; faded Levi’s and black boots, yes, even in the heat of the summer. He inspired fleeting glances from passerbies. No one would have approached this monster of a man for fear of scathing remarks. There seemed to be a...
