The device we seeing here is surely not the white iPhone 4 which appeared in the UK last week. Yes, it has the new proximity sensor, same as the white iPhone 4. Anyway, maybe this is the prototype iPhone with an A5 processor that game developers are using to prepare their iPhone 5 apps.

The site says they are unsure if the photos are genuine but ‘are sure that it’s not an iPhone 4’.

Take a look below…

Apple Bans Screen Protectors From Its Stores

Among the most popular accessories for the iPhone, iPod, and MacBook lines are films and coverings designed to protect the screen from scratches; some products also fight glare and offer privacy protection. However, several vendors—who wish to remain anonymous to avoid conflict with Apple—have told Macworld that Apple will no longer sell such products, or any other products that adhere to Apple devices, in either the online Apple Store or Apple retail stores.

While Apple hasn’t explained the decision to vendors, there are a couple of likely explanations behind it. Multiple sources have told us that, because of the difficulty of applying such films and coverings without blemishes or air bubbles, these products are returned at a higher rate than many other products.

But it’s also possible that Apple doesn’t want to give the impression that screen protection is necessary, especially with the iPad on the way—it’s unlikely a coincidence that such a policy was put into effect just weeks before the iPad hits the street. (We have found the screens on the latest iPhone and iPod touch models to be significantly more resistant to scratches than the screens on earlier models, and screen films also negate the oleophobic properties of the newer screens.)

Interestingly, this policy also includes popular anti-glare films for Apple’s recent laptops, protection and cushions for laptop palm areas, and any iPhone or iPod cases that include screen protection. The move has left some case vendors scrambling to quickly repackage their products sans screen protection, so as not to lose their privileged place in Apple’s stores.

Apple had not responded to our request for comment at the time of publication. Calls to several Apple retail stores indicated that the stores currently still have such products in stock.

How To Extend Your iPhone’s Battery Life

Apple
claims that iPhone 3GS offers up to 5 hours of talk time on 3G (12 hours on 2G), 5 hours of Internet use
(9 hours on Wi-Fi), 10 hours of video playback or 30 hours of audio playback and finally 300 hours of standby time.

However, you might have observed significantly lesser battery life based on your usage pattern.

Apple has some useful tips on how to extend battery life of iPhone and iPod Touch.

So if your biggest complaint about the iPhone is that you need to keep recharging it regularly then you will find this article useful.

Here are some of the tips to extend battery life of iPhone and iPod Touch:

*

Heat can degrade performance of your iPhone’s battery. So it is important to keep the iPhone out of the sun or a hot car (including the glove box).
*

Set auto-Lock interval (Settings > General > Auto-Lock) so that your iPhone will turn off more quickly after a period of inactivity.
*

Apple has also provided some tips to optimize your iPhone settings to extend battery life:
o

Use location services only when needed (Settings > General > Location Services).
o

Turn off push notifications (Settings > Notifications)
o

Fetch email or other data less frequently (Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data).
o

Turn off push mail such when you don’t need it (Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data and set Push to Off).
o

If you rarely use Wi-Fi or in a area where there is no Wi-Fi coverage then turn it off (Settings > Wi-Fi).
o

If you hardly use Bluetooth then turn off Bluetooth to save power (Settings > General > Bluetooth)
o

Turn on Auto-Brightness to allow the screen to adjust its brightness based on current lighting conditions.
o

Dimming the screen will also help in extending battery life.
o

If you’re on the plane or in an area where there is no coverage then use Airplane mode to increase battery life (Settings > Airplane Mode).
o

Turn off equalizer setting to song playback as it can decrease battery life (Settings > iPod > EQ).
o

As you might have noticed, you can use the iPhone for a longer time to surf the internet on 2G (up to 12 hours) as compare to on 3G (up to 5 hours). So you can turn off 3G to extend battery life (Settings > General > Network and set Enable 3G to Off).
*

You can improve battery life by minimizing the use of iPhone apps like games as they prevent the screen from dimming and iPhone apps that use location services.
*

Apple advices users to update their iPhone with the latest iPhone OS.
*

You should also use the iPhone regularly for proper maintenance of a lithium-based battery. In fact, Apple advices users to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down).

The tips are useful especially when you’re travelling and need battery life on your iPhone or iPod Touch for a longer time, or when you’re running extremely low on battery and want to save power as much as possible for something important.

I hope you find these tips useful. If you have a tip that you want to share then feel free to tell us in the comments.

The iPad Hands On by Engadget

Here it is folks, the Apple iPad. The screen is gorgeous, tilting is responsive, and the thing is super thin. Still, if you’ve used the iPhone before — and you can see the two devices side-by-side here — there’s not a lot of surprises here so far. Here are some initial thoughts on the iPad:

It’s not light. It feels pretty weighty in your hand.
The screen is stunning, and it’s 1024 x 768. Feels just like a huge iPhone in your hands.
The speed of the CPU is something to be marveled at. It is blazingly fast from what we can tell. Webpages loaded up super fast, and scrolling was without a hiccup. Moving into and out of apps was a breeze. Everything flew.
There’s no multitasking at all. It’s a real disappointment. All this power and very little you can do with it at once. No multitasking means no streaming Pandora when you’re working in Pages… you can figure it out. It’s a real setback for this device.
The ebook implementation is about as close as you can get to reading without a stack of bound paper in your hand. The visual stuff really helps flesh out the experience. It may be just for show, but it counts here.
No camera. None, nada. Zip. No video conferencing here folks. Hell, it doesn’t have an SMS app!
It’s running iPhone OS 3.2.
The keyboard is good, not great. Not quite as responsive as it looked in the demos.
No Flash confirmed. So Hulu is out for you, folks!
