New Leak Says that iPhone SE will Borrow Heavily from 5S Design and Feature a 12 MP Camera

As official launch date closes by, we’re getting several reports revealing almost everything about the much awaited, iPhone SE that is going to be unveiled on this month’s 21st. A fresh new leak is making rounds claiming that the upcoming iPhone will be a “heavily upgraded” 5S rather than a “6S mini”, with a much more refined build.


The iPhone SE will look almost alike the 5S suggesting a much boxier aesthetic instead of curved looks with rounded volume buttons and power button on the top. It will flaunt a metal back rounded off with glass on both sides. We’ve seen numerous images before that showcases a more curved design, as a result, nothing can be said for certain as of now. The Edges on SE will be a lot less shiny with matte finishes providing a much cleaner outline and less susceptible to scratches.

The source also reported that Apple has packed some impressive hardware including the A9 processor, NFC for Apple Pay and surprisingly, an M9 chip for the always-on “Hey Siri” feature. The camera rig will be reportedly inherited from the current 6S with a f/2.2 12MP rear camera capable of shooting 4K videos along with a dual tone flash setup. There’s no word on whether it will support Live Photos and 3D Touch or not.

The iPhone SE will come in 16/64GB variants and the standard four color options Apple offers now. Rumor is that the SE will retail at a reasonable starting price of $450. Also, it will be able to fit in the iPhone 5S cases which will be quite intriguing to see given the much smoother edges, in all likelihood it could be a safe bet for 5S users who are looking to upgrade to a phone with a smaller display.

The iPhone SE definitely looks like a great steal right now with a stupendous camera hardware and much cheaper price tag than we’re used to getting with iPhones. However, we’re not too sure how many users would appreciate a 4-inch display in a time when 5.5-inch measuring mammoth handsets are considered mainstream. The device will go official next week on Monday until then, stay tuned and check out our roundup article for the event.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
