First Allegedly iPhone 5S Photos Leaked in China

The first alleged iPhone 5S spy shots have emerged in China showing an identical form factor (no surprise there), and some Foxconn staffers actually resting (big surprise there).

Ever thought you’d hear “Foxconn staffer” and “slacking off” in the same sentence? Neither did we, but it seems this was the case when a Foxconn insider decided to take some photos of the alleged iPhone 5S production line. We could be looking at current-generation iPhones, since there is no apparent difference between the iPhone 5 display and the hardware depicted in these “leaked” pictures.

However, it is just as possible that production is now underway for the next-generation iPhone 5S, rumored to make its debut in the June-July timeframe. Apple is also said to be prototyping a 5-inch iPhone 6 for launch later this year. What do you think of the photos? Fake, or real? (gallery below).

How to Remove All Pre-Installed Windows 8 Metro Apps

As you probably know by now in case you’re a Windows 8 adopter, Microsoft offers its newest operating system with several pre-installed Metro/Modern apps.

Regardless if we’re talking about Sports, Bing, Photos, Messaging and Mail, all of them are considered to be the essential apps for the average Windows 8 computer user who wants to make the most of the Metro UI without launching the Store. The problem with these apps is that some of them are pretty useless for the majority of users, so removing them is quickly becoming a priority for quite a lot of people. In addition, they eat up a lot of space on your disks and given the fact that the available free space is one of the hottest topics these days for those interested in buying a Surface with Windows 8, it’s pretty important to get rid of them.  Uninstalling a specific app is usually just a matter of clicks because the “confusing” Start Screen allows users to simply right-click a Modern app and hit the “Uninstall” button at the bottom of the screen. But in case you’re planning to remove all of them as fast as possible, here’s a trick found by Winaero. Basically, it all comes down to the integrated PowerShell that allows you to run a bunch of commands as administrator.

Launching the PowerShell is pretty simple. You can either access the Start Screen and type “PowerShell” or hit “Win Key + R” on the desktop, write down “PowerShell” and hit enter. Don’t forget that you need to launch the PowerShell with administrator privileges!

Once you’re there, simply write down the following command to check out the list with the installed Metro/Modern apps in case you removed some of them from the Start Screen:

CODEGet-AppxPackage –AllUsers

If you wish to remove all currently installed apps, type the following line and hit enter:

CODEGet-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage

The problem with some of the pre-installed apps is that they re-appear whenever you create a new user account. All these apps are marked as “Stage” after typing the first command and in case you wish to stop them from getting re-installed, here’s another command:

CODEGet-AppXProvisionedPackage -online | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage –online
That’s it. Only three commands to get rid of useless Metro apps and free up some space. In case you’re looking into ways to re-install some of them, Microsoft has got you covered. Simply launch the Store and search for them, all apps are also available as separate downloads.
