Every apple customer wishes for the latest features and apps. If you purchase brand new gadget of iPhone, it is locked as per company policies. As you might have heard that, there is an antivirus for every virus, same is the case here; there is an alternate way to use new features on the same machine through unlocking. Unlocking not only gives you the access to the latest apps and features. It also brings freedom of using any network carrier. If you look at all the versions of iPhone, iPhone 5 is different from all others in many ways.
Apple was aware of this unlocking issue, so the company took an interesting step to stop this unlocking practice. They introduced the A5 chip in iPhone 5, which made it difficult to unlock. In early time just after iPhone 5 was launched, everyone seemed confused about unlocking it because of A5 chip. Apple Company directly inserted this chip in the processor of iPhone 5 hardware, which remained a biggest hurdle in unlocking this device for a short time. Where there is a will there is a way. After some time, the solution to this problem was there in the market.
Many iPhone users do not know about the fact that iPhone is locked at factory end, which means that it will not support the network of any other carrier other than the company which had an agreement with Apple to sell it. Many customers switch to other networks only due to the high bills and taxes imposed by the default carrier. Unlocking iPhone eliminates the limitation of using only a single network carrier. One cannot change the hardware of iPhone, which can damage your smart phone, but unlocking is done through the changes made in the software portion of the iPhone. Remember, changes done in software can be retrieved, but if you had some hands with the hardware of the device, then it is very difficult to get your iPhone back to its original position.
Unlocking of iPhone needs special techniques. A normal person can do it but there is a chance of software failure while unlocking. Therefore, the unlocking process is normally left to the experts who know all the pros and cons of this procedure and can do it safely without giving any damage to your device. If you ever had to unlock iPhone 4, always go to some expert.
Through unlocking iPhone, one can use the network of his/her choice. There is no need to use the specific or default network. All mobile users are aware of the word ‘international roaming’. If you are in States and using specific network carrier, then to use that network in any other country is very painful and costly. You have to pay for international roaming in order to use that network in any other country. Unlocking comes to rescue in such a situation as it makes the whole process lot easier and you can switch to any network carrier of your choice.
Unlocking becomes very helpful while downloading your favorite apps and features from any free portals, as iTunes and App Store charge specific amount of money for downloading. That is the reason, why many customers rush towards unlocking of iPhone after purchasing a new gadget.Google+
