  • iPhone X is the latest iPhone and it has the most beautiful design ever. Following the trend of bezeless design, iPhone X is a bezeless design. It looks like a glass window in the hand. To fix the front-facing camera and sensor, Apple gave the notch in the middle of the iPhone which looks a little weird because we are not used to seeing such notch in between the display. But all over, iPhone X is the most advanced and powerful smartphone.

  1. Apple believes in the principle that the product should appeal to its creators first. The engineers who are creating Apple products actually make them for themselves.
  2. Right from day one, the mantra of the company has always been, ‘What is not easy to use is worthless to the consumer’. This is what drives the company’s user-interface designs.
  3. The company keeps things simple by having one product. For example, in phones, it is only iPhone. There are tech-savvy people who like more choices and complexity, but a majority of users are not tech-savvy, and keeping things simple for them is a plus. Moreover, if one goes to the Apple store, every staff member there knows a great deal about each of the four major products in store.
  4. In the words of Apple designer Jonathan Ive, “Our goals are very simple — to design and make better products. If we can’t make something that is better, we won’t do it.” So, Apple makes a product only if Apple can do it better. Their consistent strive to make the products better than its previous version has made them the most sought-after product.

The only concern will be the safety of the device.

These tools are every easy to use and support all iOS versions across all Apple devices. Most of the time all you need to do is:

How-to-remove-icloud-lock

  • Now, your phone will work normally with the new iCloud account and if you want you can reset the iCloud password.

Apple has added this additional top-level defense feature to its iPhone to shun its unauthorized usage. Data suggests that since this feature is introduced, the theft of iPhone has reduced considerably.

The iCloud lock is a block that is created when you fail to enter the correct login details. Each iPhone has its own Apple ID and its own passcode. If you don’t get these details right then, the iCloud lock is activated. If you are stuck up in any such situation, you now know how to unlock iCloud.

And if you are looking to create a backup of your iPhone on iCloud, we have a great piece of information which is explaining to you how to backup iPhone to iCloud.

But be wary of the consequences if you are not using the authenticated activation tool as lot many fakes are available online. The Activation Lock isn’t merely the lock that prevents you from getting into the iPhone, but also the fact that so much of what an iPhone does for the average user involves communications with Apple’s servers, iCloud, iTunes and the App Store, iMessage, FaceTime, Siri, etc.

An Activation Locked iPhone that was hacked may operate fine as a jailbroken device, but you wouldn’t be able to use any of these services without legitimately activating it, as Apple’s servers would refuse to communicate with it, rendering the activation locked iPhone as little more than a hacker’s toy.

This safety feature is indeed a good idea as in the case of theft it renders the iPhone unusable by the average user.
