When you get another call on your iPhone talking to, you have to place the current call on hold, so that you can suspend the phone calls without hanging it up. Whereas Hold button is already settled on your device alongside the mute, but do you know you can put calls on hold on iPhones? Here’s a simple tip for that, details after the jump.
Being an iPhone 4 user I get calls from various locations and when I want to lift another call I have to put place it on hold, but it prevents you from being able to hear the individual on the other end and they can’t hear you either. Now what to do? It’s a slightly hidden feature that you aren’t aware of, which you won’t see at the normal phone options either, but following this guide on how to use it you make it simple:
* While on call, tab and hold on the “Mute” button until it turns to “Hold“.
* Once again Tap to resume the call as usual.
Unfortunately this hidden feature is only available on GSM enabled iPhone (AT&T and T-Mobile in the USA), whereas the Verizon and Sprint iPhone’s doesn’t offer to support this feature on their CDMA networks. Though, users on CDMA networks can always just use the Mute feature instead.
There’s some good news for iPhone 4 users. Tha Apple‘s new revolutionary personal assistant feature Siri Voice, that is exclusively available in iPhone 4Scan now be ported to iPhone 4. 9 to 5 Mac.com reports that they have been working with iPhone developer and hacker Steven who have managed to successfully port Siri of iPhone 4S into iPhone 4. Update on 15th October: Steven was successful in getting the beginning steps of full port rolling after installing the iPhone 4S Siri and SpringBoard files onto iPhone 4. Siri on iPhone 4 can recognize the spoken commands both in standard Siri view and Keyboard Dictaion view. Siri is also able to speak back to the user. But, Apple is not authenticating the commands of Siri from iPhone 4. When Siri was installed on iPhone 4, it was observed that Siri and iPhone 4 are working sluggishly. This is not due to Siri, but due to a special GPU driver which is not present in iPhone4.
There has also been no official word from Apple, why Siri Voice is available exclusively to iPhone 4S. Though here is no technical reason why Siri wont work on iPhone 4, but Apple believes that iPhone 4 hardware cant support it- iPhone 4S has a special microphone support for Siri which is absent in iPhone or because the A5 may run Siri Voice slightly quicker.
If you are eager to Install Siri Voice on iPhone 4, you need to wait few more days, so that hackers can port Siri onto iPhone 4. For more updates, stay tuned with us.

iPhone 5 Release Date – The launch of iPhone 5 is expected to be in september 2011. But it may be launched little earlier, in August 2011. The guys of CNET UK spotted a job listing in Apple in UK offering “Full Time iPhone Sales Staff” who can work for the company from 16th August 2011 to 29th August 2011. The Compay also offered Job Listings and offered Staff to Hire around UK. When the CNET UK did some research on that listing, they found that they have worked with Apple Before.
There is a reason for us expecting iPhone 5 to launch on August 16th – Apple would not be looking for Sales Staff if it is not going to launch iPhone 5 in August. If the news about iPhone 5 Release Date is true, then we can expect iPhone 5 Official Announcement in a couple of weeks by Apple. If iPhone 5 will go on Sale on August 16th August, then Apple will definetly put it on Pre-order in a few Days (One or Two Weeks).
Anonymous Source that calls itself “Mr.T” reports that the next iPhone will have an LED indicator next to the camera.This LED Indicator would presumably flash whenever there is a notification, such as whenever user receives a text message or whenever any App invokes the notification service built into iOS. Also, iOS 5 include a cool function of Notifications. So it would be logical that iPhone 5 would include such enhancement Hardware-wise.
When Apple had purchased two dual-LED camera flashes to be built into iPhone 5, rumors of two LEDs around the Camera have been Surfaced. According to anonymous leak, reported by iPhoneDownloadBlog, suggests that the second LED is to Display Notifications, and not to improve picture accuracy.
These LED indicators are present in some BlackBerry Phones. Having flashing LEDs help you to notify when you have a missed call, unread text message are good to have, especially when stuck in those long meetings where no ringtones or vibrations would be allowed.
