    My iPhone 4s Gallery

    Hi, I would like to use this thread to share some of my best works from iPhone 4s since not so many people have seen my works anyway. I had quite a fond memory with my iPhone 4s. It was the phone that showed me how fun mobile photography actually was. These photos were from around 2016. The...

    iPhone 5 or earlier Is the iPhone 4s still worth it?

    I think the iPhone 4s is still working. After six/seven years of using iPhones, from 6 to 12, I have always used the iPhone 4s. It's always stable. It always seems to work. I have it dual-booted between iOS 8 and 5, and it has never stopped working. I think it might last for another few years...

    iPhone 5 or earlier Apple stops signing IOS 6.1.3 for iPhone 4S

    Hello, I was going to flash an IOS 6.1.3 IPSW to a huge batch (like 500) iPhone 4S. As most of you know, Apple started signing IOS 6 IPSW for iPhone 4S to allow official downgrades in 2018. It failed to flash to all of them. So I went to the website to download a new IPSW file, thinking...

    Other Should Apple consider using frosted glass and unpolished stainless steel in a future iPhone?

    Frosted glass provides all the benefits of normal glass, except gloss. This means that it is more resistant to scratches and does not collect fingerprints and smudges. Here's what it looks like (Sony Xperia Z5): One disadvantage is that the colors look a little dull, but I'm willing to...
