iFixit has posted its tear down of the iPad Mini 4, the tear down has revealed that the iPad Mini4 device has 2GB and a smaller battery. Below is summary of findings.
● The 6.1 mm thick iPad Mini 4 shaves 18% off the 7.5 mm Mini 3.
● The dual rear-facing microphones move to surround the iSight camera, taking up the home of the now-defunct rotation lock slider.
● Adhering the glass and display together gives a little more rigidity to this Mini—enough to ditch the huge metal shield plate that has traditionally lived behind the LCD.
● The Touch ID cable is now integrated into the display cable
● Not only is the battery thinner and of lesser capacity, it’s now a single cell, instead of two.
● Apple A8 APL1011 SoC, with SK Hynix H9CKNNN8KTBUSR 2 GB LPDDR3 SDRAMiPad Mini 4 Repairability: 2 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).
● The battery is still not soldered to the logic board.
● The LCD and front panel glass are now fused together. This slightly simplifies the opening procedure.
● The fused front panel also increases the cost of repairing a cracked screen, and increases risk of damage to the LCD when opening.
● The Lightning connector is soldered to the logic board, so don’t bend its pins.
● Gobs of adhesive hold everything in place making all repairs more difficult.
● Removing the home button is a tough but required job for display replacement if you want to keep Touch ID functionality.

Good news Apple has released the new operating system as it was expected i.e. iOS 9.0. We have given below the download links for iOS 9 and jailbreak update shall be posted shortly once we get news from Pangu or TaiG Team for iOS 9 Jailbreak.
“iOS 9 is packed with more intelligence throughout, and delivers big updates to the apps customers use most — Maps supports public transit, a redesigned Notes app provides great new ways to capture ideas, and a beautiful News app delivers content that’s personalized to your interests,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “With our new iPad features, users can take advantage of the power of iPad, working in two apps at the same time with Split View, Slide Over or Picture-in-Picture.”
Siri features an all-new design in iOS 9, contextual reminders and new ways to search photos and videos. Proactive assistance presents the most relevant information without compromising users’ privacy and suggests actions at a particular moment — even before you start typing — automatically suggesting apps to launch or people to contact based on usage patterns, and notifying you when you need to leave for appointments, taking into account traffic conditions. iOS 9 can even learn what you typically listen to in a certain location or at a particular time of day, so when you plug in headphones at the gym or hop in the car before work, it can automatically display playback controls for your preferred app. Typed search queries deliver more relevant results from more categories, including sports scores and schedules, videos and simple math calculations.
New iPad Features
With a simple swipe, the new Slide Over feature lets you simultaneously work in a second app without leaving the first. And with a quick tap, you can access the new Split View feature so you can work in two apps at the same time, side-by-side. Picture-in-Picture lets you continue a FaceTime call or video while using your favorite apps. These new multitasking features are supported by built-in Apple apps, and APIs make it easy for third-party developers to add support into their own apps. Typing is faster and easier with an all-new Shortcut Bar that displays actions tailored for the app you are in, and new Multi-Touch™ gestures make it even easier to select and edit text.
In iOS 9, Maps adds support for metropolitan transit systems and schedules, and subway station entrances and exits are precisely mapped, providing every step of your trip. When you plan your trip, Maps can offer a combination of trains, subways, buses and walking, and with the new Nearby feature, quickly see what’s around by searching for food, drinks, shopping and more.
New features of the completely redesigned Notes app include the ability to draw a quick sketch using your finger, easily create checklists to keep track of your to-dos, or snap a photo directly in a note. Easily save important items to your notes directly from other apps, and keep them in sync across all your enabled devices with iCloud.
The News app delivers a reading experience that combines the rich, immersive design of a print magazine with the interactivity of digital media. News can learn your interests and suggest relevant content that’s easily shareable with friends or saved for later. News delivers the best articles from a variety of publishers and over one million topics to help you personalize your reading experience, all presented in an elegant, uncluttered design. News is powered by the new Apple News Format™, a digital publishing format supporting custom typography, galleries, audio, video and interactive animations, allowing publishers like Condé Nast, ESPN and The New York Times to create beautiful editorial layouts for iOS users.
iOS 9 makes the foundation of iOS even stronger with refinements including battery optimization that provides a typical user with an additional hour of battery life, and a low-power mode to help further extend battery life. Software updates require less space to install and an Install Later feature can perform updates to your device when it’s not in use. Enhanced security features in iOS 9 keep your devices and Apple ID secure by strengthening the passcode that protects your devices and improving two-factor authentication by building it directly into iOS, making it harder for others to gain unauthorized access to your Apple ID.
iOS 9 APIs and tools for developers include:
● extensible search that deep links directly to content within third-party apps;
● GameplayKit and Model I/O for building better games and ReplayKit for recording gameplay;
● new HomeKit profiles for motorized windows and shades, motion sensors and home security systems;
● wireless CarPlay™ and support for auto manufacturers to develop apps within CarPlay; and
● new HealthKit data points for reproductive health, UV exposure, water intake and sedentary state.
You can upgrade to iOS 9 by backing up first and using Software Update on your device. Or, you can download iOS 9 directly using the links below:

This is the review about the Apple Watch band. Some people get the Apple Watch directly what Apple provides while others get the Apple Band through third party. But they keep worrying if the quality of the device is good or bad. However as the review says even the third party Apple Bands are excellent in quality and give the same satisfaction as the other. Plus, is also less expensive than the other one so why won’t one purchase it? Users are recommended to definitely try out the Monowear and give it a chance at least as it is worth it.
Monowear provides the users with a fine quality leather band and also a nylon material band. The good thing is that the leather band is very excellent in quality, soft leather is used to make it and it feels smooth to the touch. The leather band costs $79 and the nylon one is retailed for $ 59.
Some people might think that the nylon band is not an appropriate one when it comes to wearing a watch on your wrist. But it is quite a surprise to know that the band is of decent quality and pretty soft for nylon. The material sits comfortably around the wrist without being into a prominent image.
The leather made the watch look pretty expensive than the real price and give a classic elegant look and the nylon band gave a more sporty image to the person wearing it. Another material of the band is metal band which was offered by Mono-wear that cost maximum $119.99 and minimum cost of $89.99. The metal band is recommended as first priority when it comes to durability. So in short let’s sum it up, if you want to enjoy a reasonable and durable band then stop here and purchase it without thinking twice.
