Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

11 new features of iOS 6Everyone is anxiously awaiting the debut of Apple’s iOS 6 which is expected to arrive in the fall of 2012.  Apple proudly launched iOS 6 during it’s WordWide Developers Conference in June, 2012 and we’re here to share the most popular and talked about features and updates.  See our previous post, Top 10 Instagram Photos from WWDC 2012, for a detailed look at the conference via images.  Our D.i.D. Doctor of iDevices put together the following list of 11 eye-opening features and updates to expect in the highly anticipated iOS 6:

1. Maps.  Instead of using Google maps, Apple will be using its own newly designed map app for iOS 6.  Unlike Google, this map can be tilted to view the map from an angle and there’s no pixelation when you zoom in as it’s vector based.  Apple is also introducing turn-by-turn navigation similar to the Android.  Users can follow maps with 3D views, look at road signs for their new turn and check traffic.

2. Siri.  The quirky little voice assistant is getting an upgrade to know more about sports and movies.  You can ask Siri about the current status of the Olympic games or what movie is playing at your local movie theater.  Check out our previous post, 5 best apps for the 2012 London Olympics, for more information on how to follow the upcoming games on your favorite Apple devices.

Hidden features for iOS appsYour iOS device comes equipped with various apps like Mail, Camera, Clock, Stock and Safari. We use them everyday but are we using them to their full potential? Probably not! Here is your guide to all the hidden capabilities within the iOS apps we know and love:


Siri is a favorite application among many, but did you know the clock app has many functions including the ability to see what time it is all over the world, schedule alarms and timers as well as a nifty stopwatch.  But did you know you can also use Clock as a sleep timer for your favorite music or video?

First you launch the Clock application and then you tap timer.  Below the dials for adjusting the hours and minutes, tap on the When Timer Ends button.  Scroll past the sound effects and click Stop Playing.  Now, your iOS device such as your iPhone or iPod will stop playing whatever music or video is running when the timer runs out.

Apple’s stunning Retina display is one of their proudest achievements.  Engineers developed pixels that are a mere 78 micrometers wide, and they were also able to pack together four times the number of pixels into the 3.5 inch screen found on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4.   This results in an image based on 326 pixels per inch. Even the human eye can’t distinguish pixels on the screen.

3 Reasons Why the New iPhone Will Be Called the iPhone 5

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

Say hello to the iPhone 5. 

Apple is usually fairly predictable when it comes to naming devices. Our D.i.D. Doctor of iDevices have been patiently waiting for the next iPhone to be released, and there has been much debate over what the name will be.  Some say it will be the iPhone 5, while some say it will be simply “The iPhone” similar to the recent curve ball Apple threw at us with the iPad. We are expecting the latest iPhone to be released in October, 2012.   Carriers such as Spring are gearing up by offering unlimited data plans with LTE! All in all, the iHospital believes it will be called the iPhone 5 and here are three rock solid reasons:

1.) Apple has filed a claim with WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) to gain control of the domain.  The folks at WIPO are currently looking over how compliant Apple’s claim is, and proceedings are to be initiated in the near future. Interestingly, Apple didn’t get full control of the domain until nearly a year after that device launched.  And guess what happened with Apple gained full control two weeks after the release of the iPhone 4S because that domain was forwarding visitors to pornography sites! Talk about a wrong turn.

17 Expected, and Dreamed About Features of the iPad 3

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

To say a lot of buzz is floating around the net today about the iPad 3 would be a massive understatement.  Instead of jumping from blog to blog, we’ve decided to distill everything you need to know in one blog post.  Here’s the 17 latest and greatest expected and dreamed about features about the one and only, our favorite… the iPad 3

1. You won’t pay more for the iPad 3. It will cost the same as the iPad 2. According to 9to5Mac, Apple will not raise prices for their latest tablet and will keep its current pricing structure in place for all iPad 3 models.

2. The next iPad will include the coveted Retina display i.e. a screen that has a dpi (dots per inch) of 300 or greater as seen on the iPhone 4/4S. The first and second generation iPads feature a 1,024 by 768 pixel resolution touchscreen.  The new retina display will reportedly be 2048 x 1024 pixels, twice that of the iPad 2!  Ars Technica reported that it currently received web traffic from over 360 iPads that sported the new retina display which reinforces this rumor as well.
