What are the Expected Features of iPhone 6?

The iPhone 6 is rumored to come out in the fall of 2013. This latest iPhone should be an improvement over the iPhone 5 and give Apple enthusiasts the opportunity to find even more to love about the company. Some of these features are only rumors and have not been confirmed by Apple. This is supposed to be the rumored budget iPhone that should make the phone more affordable to consumers. It may be the phone that you were waiting for. If you are on the market for a new phone, you may want to wait until this model is released in the fall to get a new one.

Kill Switch

When you lose your cell phone, it is a pain to have to rebuild all of your contact information. When you lose your smart phone, you run a greater risk of identify theft through the private information being found on your phone. The kill switch would allow you to turn off the phone and lock out any users remotely. It will also feature a GPS feature that will allow you to track its location and find it. This is a great feature that makes it a lot easier to control your phone and helps make the information on your phone more secure. This is a feature that many users have been wanting for a long time, and it looks like Apple will finally be able to provide it.

New Icons

Although this is not a real feature, the new icons may change the way you view Apple. This has been confirmed with beta testers. The icons will change the way that your welcome screen and other programs look on your phone. The reviews on the new icons are mixed. They are flatter in appearance, but designers are complaining that the shading is off in the program. Additionally, the icons are not yet consistent across all of the Apple products.

Transparency Feature

If you love to multi-task, you will love the new transparency feature that is rumored to be coming to the iPhone. This will allow you to work on one task while seeing through that program to whatever you were doing before. This will allow you to check your mail or texts quickly without interrupting your videos or other programs. It can make it easier to manage the multi-tasking you may face. This will make switching back and forth between programs much easier for most users.

Budget iPhone

The Budget iPhone is one the terms being used to describe the latest iPhone release in the fall. Apple is working to build a more affordable model that will make it easier for people to purchase it. The dummies and pictures on the Internet show that the iPhone is made of plastic instead of metal. In order save on costs, the resulting iPhone is a bit thicker than the iPhone 5. However, the savings may well be worth the different design. The model is being compared to that of the iPod touch and should still appeal to most Apple users.

Increased Speed

One promised feature of the new iPhone is that it will have increased speed over the older models. With data plan speeds picking up and the ability to do more and more with the apps available, speed is becoming an important feature when looking for a phone. The iPhone 6 should deliver the type of speed you need to easily open new apps and to perform a variety of functions. If you want to upgrade just to gain more speed, this new iPhone will make the expense worth it.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
