As they grew revenues when sales fell iPad

In Q2 2016 Apple sold 9.9 million tablets iPad worldwide, with 300,000 units less than the same period last year, the Cupertino expecting that follows to register a further decline in sales of iPads, so all expectations were already so.

Although sales of iPads fell 9% comparing the two fiscal quarters, receipts for those of Apple iPad tablets grew by 7%, the situation is quite unusual for someone who looks things strictly speaking, but the reality behind this achievements reveals that the Cupertino strategy was bearing fruit.

In Q2 2016 Apple had earned 4.876 billion dollars from the sales of iPads and increase in revenues is due to the fact that both models of iPad Pros average selling prices higher than the tablets sold in the same period last year, and hence the increase of 7% in overall revenues.

Sales drop, revenues and profits grow

Specifically, although Apple sold fewer tablets than in the same period last year, revenues grew because tablets sold were expensive and so Apple has managed to make money even in falling sales of its products, and here sit virtually the genius of Cupertino.

A lot of people was surprised that Apple was able to announce something good out of something bad, but so is business for those in Cupertino, and they have the intelligence to make more money, even when sales drop and we can expect similar situations in the coming fiscal quarters.

This is the first time in the last 10 fiscal quarters when the income of iPads rose compared with a fiscal quarter basis, while those from Apple can look confidently to the future, especially if it will convince more people to buy iPads Pro.

In the picture below you combinations of terminal models iPhone sold by Apple and its partners in the US from September until now, and in a very short analysis you will see that models with 64 GB storage space dominates unappealable sales , just as expected.

After them come the models with 16 GB of storage, which is cheaper but offer space that can hardly meet the needs of many users who separately installed applications from the App Store are rushing to take pictures or videos, and they do not have enough room to be stored in devices.

In the third quarter of fiscal 2015 iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has been the undisputed leader in sales offer Apple, but their place was taken quickly by the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus after launching models with 128 GB of storage recording vanzaril fairly consistent, according to the data.

Since March things start to become still more interesting, iPhone SE starting to record Vandre pretty good, stealing from sales of iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 / Plus or iPhone 6S / Plus, the device being bought mainly by those who were old models the iPhone and wanted something new but not very big screen.

Basically, at the moment iPhone SE represents approximately 16% of all iPhones US assets, share one big enough if we think that we are talking about a terminal with 4 inch screen which theoretically would not have had to report Apple’s interest to customers, but reveals that there is a market ignored by Americans.

Information put in a light little different way people choose to buy temrinalele iphone, but here we are talking about the US, so in other parts of the world things could be different, especially in terms of sales models with 64GB or 128 GB storage space, they are expensive.

NCApps open applications directly in the Notifications Center

NCApps is a tweak available during the day in Cydia for iPhone and iPod Touch sites that run iOS 9, he giving us the opportunity to open applications directly in the Notifications Center, the picture below showing how it clear its functionality.

According to the developer NCApps any open application in Notifications Center works as in normal mode would be open operating system iOS in September, so basically we will benefit from all the functionality that the application provides for a new normal.

At closing, NCApps remember the last open application in Notifications Center and reopen it for us, but applications are not kept permanently open in the background to not consume battery power, as happens normally with open applications in the background system iOS 9.

NCApps photoNCApps allows you to quickly access an application from within a new notification center tab. When first opened you will be presented with an option to select an app. After an app is selected you can interact with it as you would if it were fully launched.

GridSwitcher Cydia Tweak for iOS 9

The redesigned task switcher gets one more redesign thanks to tom-go, a tweak programmer who has released GridSwitcher. Here is the latest tweak that alters how the job switcher looks (and works).

Now, arguably, you might or might not concur with me on this one but this undoubtedly is an excellent tweak if theme mods are your sort of a thing.gridswitcher

Along with the motive is great is because you can now see around four programs immediately in the iPhone and access them faster. It doesn’t make sense when you simply read that sentence but when you utilize GridSwitcher, it actually alters how you change between programs. I didn’t believe it’d make a lot of difference but between the stock iOS 9 switcher and GridSwitcher, there’s actually lots of difference.

As an example, it might screw up tweaks which make developments to the switchers UI. Purge appears to function just fine in our tests but with lots of tweaks out there, a compatibility graph is kind of difficult.

GridSwitcher places those program cards right into a grid so meaning it is possible to see four of them as opposed to the only card you can find out in the iOS 9 switcher. The cartoons are quite awesome and easy (nothing overboard). Exactly the same swipe-upwards kills the program which you swiped upwards from the switcher.

Whether there will be upgrades which will address compatibility with other tweaks, GridSwitcher is a keeper for sure. It reminds you of Auxo and is really, almost far better in regard to the encounter.

GridSwitcher is up on BigBoss for $1.50.

Customize to your liking Music apps navigation bar

The music program in iOS 9 is ideal for listening to music as it’s user friendly and has all the feature you’d ever want from a stock music program. Among the best characteristics of the program is that how straightforward the navigation between various areas of the stock program is thanks to the navigation bar found at the end of the display.

However, what in the event you’d like to replace any button in the navigation bar using a button more pertinent to your own demands and that’s sitting in the more section of the program. Well it’s pretty easy move to make, here’s how.

It is an excellent choice to create Music.program more satisfied to users settings. If you’d like to replace the Radio choice with Music Genres or Composers now you realize the best way to get it done.

To be able to get this done just start the Music.app and hit the more button in the button bar. Now pat in the edit button after which you’ll view a display as shown in the picture above. With this screen you’ll find distinct icons.

How to use Cydia Installer

Actually we will present not one way but two ways of installing apps on iPhone without WiFi.cydia-installer

Before starting, you should know that for both ways, there are some requirements that need to be done until proceeding, like:
Your iDevice needs to be Jailbroken. If it’s not, but you already were considering in doing this, for more details on this matter, please consider on doing a little research before.

  • You need a computer

Best App Launcher Cydia Tweaks

Among the things that iOS loses is the capacity to launch programs quicker using something similar to an Program Launcher. Decently.

When you jailbreak, its as if alternatives have burst. At last count, we’d at least five distinct program launchers for iOS 8. (the list will likely be upgraded as and when we locate a cool program launcher appear on Cydia).

Swipey

Cost: $1.99 | Repo: BigBoss

Swipey is an program launcher that relies in the swipe gesture. It’s possible for you to configure Swipey to have shortcuts for as much as six favourite programs from your lockscreen.

As straightforward as that.

Each page is an instant shortcut to an program. When you land on a page and let it remain to get a timeout, the accompanying program launches. You can even keep swiping more to get to other programs which you have put.

AppBox

Appbox iOS 8.2 Program Launcher Cydia Tweak

Cost: $0.99 | Repo: BigBoss

AppBox is among the trendiest program launchers for iOS 8.3. AppBox sets your favourite programs as icons with this page in order to get them immediately.

Some programs have linked widget-like operation: for instance, tap and hold in the Music program as well as the playlist opens; harness and hold in the Message program and a Compose New Message display opens up.

But AppBox goes beyond this with attributes which are scarcely accessible one tweak. Most notably, you can even conceal program badges and labels to allow it to be even more minimal.

RocketLauncher

Cost: $1.00 | Repo: ModMyi

RocketLauncher is one more lockscreen launcher that also functions as an alternative program switcher. One must use the RocketLauncher in order to describe and understand how different it’s compared to most other launchers. The tweak is mainly driven by gesture-based activities to the lockscreen. It reveals program switcher icons to the right (piled vertically) and an program display preview to the left.

Agreeably, RocketLauncher is a quicker method of opening programs since you dont lift your finger off the display.

It’s possible for you to configure the program icons to be shortcuts to seven of your preferred programs. In the event you dont configure this, the programs revealed will function as recently-used programs. After RocketLauncher opens, you simply swipe / slide your finger on the program icon that must be established.

Gestr

Cost: $0.99 | Repo: BigBoss

Gestr is a draw-to-open-an-program sort of a tweak/program launcher. With Gestr installed, it is possible to draw contours to open favourite programs. There isn’t any limit in Gestr which means it is possible to put lots of forms to programs. Putting a contour may be somewhat tricky since there are not any settings for Gestr.

As an example, within my iPhone, Ive place doubletap-statusbar to activate Gestr. After Gestr launches the sailcloth, I draw a contour plus it opens the program. And on iOS, the execution is really great.

JellyLock8

Cost: Free | Repo: BigBoss

JellyLock was a popular Android-divine lockscreen launcher for iOS 6 and it’s been upgraded to support iOS 8.3 also. JellyLock8 lets you place five shortcuts to your own favourite programs arranged in a semicircle. The unlock and camera icons are saved so that you’ve got fast use of the camera also.

Polus

Cost: $0.99 | Repo: BigBoss

Technically the very best fast launcher for Control Center, Polus continues to be widely and carefully designed and developed to provide you with plenty of customization choices and control on the tweak. If youre looking to place shortcuts to programs in the Control Center, Polus is the most effective approach to take about it.

ListLauncher8

Cost: $0.99 | Repo: BigBoss

Think about some launching programs in the Spotlight but without hunting for them? In that, you could have your favourite programs recorded for fast access. The tweak is user friendly and is neatly designed.

Were expecting thered be more program launchers for iOS 9. The executions that weve seen so far are excellent and have paved way to get a template to discover the best program launchers.

So whats the greatest one of all? We cant possess a consensus on this one. Going by cost, JellyLock8 is amazing: its free also it works flawlessly. But every launcher appears to really have a limit which is, in fact, great as you dont need to get unlimited favorites. It defeats the goal. But if five, six or seven appears to be a little amount for the amount of favorites you’ve, Gestr looks like a trendy tweak. Thus does AppBox.

Im sure we lost some cool program launcher. Tell us in the opinions and well happily add it to our list.
