Apple iPhone 5

As announced on last Friday, Apple offered to replace some older iPhone 5 smartphones that have flawed on-off buttons, which stop working or work intermittently. According to sources from Apple support website, only a small percentage of iPhone 5 models is affected. Owners can validate if their iPhone 5 is in the list from the qualifying serial number provided by Apple.

The California-based company said “…Apple will replace the sleep/wake button mechanism, free of charge, on iPhone 5 models that exhibit this issue and have a qualifying serial number…“.

Free repairs will be offered for iPhone 5 users that fall into the list of qualifying serial number. The replacement process began Friday in the US and Canada and will begin in other countries on May 2.

iPhone 3GS

In my previous posts, I have been using iPhone 3GS for almost 3 years; in other words, my contract with existing service provider, MobileOne (M1), is already long up and I am eligible to renew my contract.

For the past 9 months, I have been waiting for iPhone 5 to be released. My excitement skyrocketed when Apple finally announced the release of the latest device.

iPhone 5 – To Buy or Not To Buy

iPhone 5

iPhone 5 was officially announced on September 12th 2012 by Tim Cook, Chief Executive Officer of Apple. All the hype about the new generation of iPhone has ended with much disappointment to many.

First of all, it was more of a hardware upgrade rather than new innovation, i.e. a faster A6 processor, better camera for taking panoramic pictures, longer size to accommodate 5 rows of icons. The introduction of LTE network support was consistently known by the public as 2-year old technology. In addition, Apple replaced Google Map apps on iOS 6 (which comes preinstalled in iPhone 5), and removed YouTube app; both apps owned by Google, sending a message out that it will cease to partner with them on developing apps and start to rely on its own technology.

In spite of all these, Apple managed to exceed Pre-order quota within 60 minutes upon the opening of iPhone 5 sales online. Worldwide, it achieved 2 million orders! This has caused Apple to announce the delay in delivery of iPhones due to overwhelming orders.
