We are hearing a lot of rumors about the iPhone 7 what how will it look and what new features it will have. Traditionally Apple has launched iPhone in September every year. We have also heard that iPhone 7 will not change its design, rather will stick to design of its predecessor i.e. iPhone 6s, but it will redesigned antenna lines, front and rear cameras and they will be ditching 3.5mm headphone jack!
Evan blass who is a prominent leaker has always given the right information about the launch dates of a device, said that the next iPhone which will be known as iPhone 7 will be launched on September 12; then again he tweeted that Apple will launch this device on 16th September.
Earlier the iPhone 7 was expected to be launched in three variants:
-iPhone 7 Plus
-iPhone 7 Pro
But another news came that iPhone will be launched in 2 variants only. It is also stated that the iPhone will say goodbye to 16gb model and the 32gb will be their base variant. So the iPhone 7 will come with 32gb, 128gb and 256gb model.
It is also said that the new models will come up with bigger battery and a new Apple A10 processor which will give the users a seamless experience. The home button will also have force touch capabilities. With Apple saying goodbye to the 3.5mm headphone jack, the phone is expected to be 1mm slimmer than its predecessor. There is also another rumor that this time Apple will no longer be using the LG’s IPS LCD panel but instead they will be using the OLED which is superior to the LCD panel in terms display clarity but also it is energy efficient.
Apple has not revealed any details about the device and has remained silent on when the next iPhone will be launched. Its just the rumors and leaks which made everyone believe that the company is working on the iPhone 7. There are also pictures of iPhone 7 which compares it with iPhone 6s which claims that the iPhone will have a slightly redesigned body.
The iPhone 7 is expected to come with preinstalled iOS 10 and with new features such as:
iPhone 6s and 6s Plus did sell considerably well last year but their share of sales dropped compared to its predecessor iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. customers continued to use their year old iphone 6 and 6 Plus or even they did stick to their two year old iPhone 5S. Apple will be willing to improve its sales as compared to last year. We have to wait till 16th September when Apple officially announces the phone and its new features.
Stay tuned to AppInventiv for the latest updates about iPhone.
Know the difference between hybrid apps and native apps, and which one is most suitable for your mobile app needs.
Hybrid Mobile Apps
A Hybrid mobile app is an app which is installed on your device natively and coded with web technologies like HTML, CSS etc. This type of app uses Webview to run. A Webview can be defined as a chromeless browser with is bundled with a mobile app.
Hybrid mobile apps have a feel of a native app to them. The hybrid apps can interact with native device functions such as geo-location, cameras etc. Any bugs found in accessing these native features can be solved using Cordova plugins.
The strengths of Hybrid
1. It is fully cross-platform- You have to write code once and build it for Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
2. Reuse the code- The Code of a webpage which already exists can be used to transform it into an app for mobiles.
4. Very less time and cost required- Due to its many advantages, a mobile app can be finished relatively quickly.
The weaknesses of Hybrid
1. Issues in performance- The performance is fairly limited as these apps run in a Webview.
2. Behavioral issues- Additional tweaks might be required along with some optimization to the code because of the differing form of Webviews from platform to platform.
3. Slow adaptation to the updated versions of the platform- Whenever a new version of the mobile platform comes in the market, you will be needed to wait a few additional months as Cordova first needs to come up with a verified support for this new version.
Native Mobile Apps
Native mobile apps are those apps which run on your device natively with true native UI elements. Unlike the hybrid apps, native apps don’t run on Webview, meaning the performance isn’t sacrificed.
Like the hybrid, it lets the user utilize their web skills while also providing an engaging experience with add-ons like Telerik UI.
The strengths of Native:
1. It is fully cross-platform- Just like a hybrid, the apps which are created with Nativescript will run on both Android and iOS with just one codebase.
4. Immediate support for new versions- Unlike a hybrid, whenever a new mobile OS version is launched, NativeScript provides the support for this new version immediately.
The weaknesses of Native:
2. Not so smooth learning curve- Whereas hybrid lets you use HTML, same is not the case with NativeScript. Only native app concepts such as native UI elements can be used for NativeScript.

Shazam’s voice recognition feature will listen to a section of the song and provide possible results. The app connects to the main smart phone app and allows you to quickly access the app through your Android Wear.
Most of us download several apps without thinking about its function. As a result of this, our phones are flooded with notifications and we may sometimes miss out on important notifications in the sea of notifications. However, with Vibrations, you will not have this problem anymore. You can assign a number of vibrations for each app so that you know when an important app is sending notifications. This nifty app costs $0.99 but is worth the price if you have many applications on your device.
While the name sounds cumbersome, this app is probably one of the most useful apps you can download. Expanded as ‘If This Then That’ this app allows you to link several apps and create recipes for the same. For example, IF your weather app says it's going to rain THEN tell your Philips Hue lights to turn blue. Thus, you can use various permutations and computations that will allow you to customize the app as per your requirements.

The flying robot which was initially used in warfare for military surveillance activities posed serious threats when exposed to civil use. Privacy & safety became the key reasons of concern as these flying machines were put for sale in public. However, the last decade witnessed a change in the attitude of people towards these machine birds.
Regulators have now become more concerned for the guidelines for the use of these devices. Their concern is an indicator of the fact that this machine is gaining popularity and is an opportunity to grab for entrepreneurs to explore the avenues where these can be used.
DRONE In Healthcare
One such avenue is drone in medical industry. The site which humans can't access, drones can easily, and even in lesser time. For countries with a less developed healthcare infrastructure, drones can do the work of service delivery of dropping medicines to the requisite places for clinics and hospitals. Additionally, it is at a speed of 90 Mph without any interception on the way for it to reach the site. Hence, drones can prove to be a boon in emergency situations.
Drones on the Test for Medical Applications
Companies like Amazon, Google and a few start ups have already started conducting field tests for drones for medical applications in remote areas. The use of drones for medical applications is still at the stage of infancy and would take time to reach up to the level for commercialization. However, it has already been used successfully in disastrous situations.
Drones on Rescue Mission
People stranded in avalanche, where doctors cannot reach directly and on time, but they can be helped by leveraging these drones. Drones can be easily modified to scan heat signatures to pinpoint and rescue stranded people.
Drones successfully delivered small aid packages after the Haitian earthquake in the year 2012, and in Papua New Guinea, Doctors without Borders used them to transport dummy TB test samples from a remote village to the city of Kerema.
Zipline is drone delivery service for clinics and hospitals throughout Western Rwanda. It was the idea of the brainchild of entrepreneur and tech innovator Keller Rinaudo, CEO of Zipline. But, the question that strikes one’s mind is that, does Zipline manufacture drones then? No, it isn't so.
Zipline drones work on an app that guides the drones to drop the packages from one place to another.
It is not the drones that Zipline or any other drone delivery service company develops but the apps on which these drones would function according to the application.
There is no doubt that there is a vast potential for drones in the medical industry. A wide range of applications exist in this field. It can be used for delivering defibrillators, for example, or tourniquets and other hemostatic stocks to people who gets injured during mass shootings.
As the range of application varies, so does there is a wide market that exists for drones in future. Successful tests and well-drafted guidelines can change the future of operations of medical industry, though there is still time for this concept of automation, but once put in place, it will bring big changes for this industry.
