Apple unveiled two new iPhones at a special event held at its Cupertino headquarters on Tuesday. It announced iPhone 5s, successor to the iPhone 5, which comes with a lot of new features like a brand new A7 processor, the first 64-bit chip inside a smartphone, improved camera, and, the highlight of the device, a fingerprint-scanner called Touch ID.

Apple also unveiled iPhone 5c, which was widely anticipated to be the low-cost iPhone, but it turned out to be a big disappointment on that aspect. While the iPhone 5c boasts impressive hardware specifications and comes in a wide variety of colours, the key criteria for this iPhone was always going to be the price, and this is where it disappoints.

Facebook has made it very clear that it is listening to the feedback that its users are giving in regards to Facebook Home, and the company is working hard to implement the changes that those users would like to see, like the option to add folders to the app list.

As soon as the Nokia 808 PureView  was launched last year, powered by Symbian, the cry immediately went up for a Windows Phone version of the phone. For nearly a year, rumors of such a device circulated until we finally reached the point that we are at now,  just a matter of days away from the launch of the Nokia Lumia 1020.

With the launch taking place on Thursday, gone are the portraits taken by Mr. Blurrycam, replaced by`clear and sharp photos as good as those done by any baby photographer inside your local Sears or Walmart store. According to the same source that leaked the press photo of the device, the Nokia Lumia 1020 will have a 41MP camera with the ability to take a 32 MP and a 5MP picture at the same time with an aspect ratio of 16:9, 39MP shots can be taken in 4:3 and it will be the first Windows Phone model to offer 2GB of RAM. The device will have 32GB of native storage with no microSD slot.
