GmailSender is a tweak published yesterday in Cydia, and with his help we can change the name of the email sender sent from our terminals. iOS normally does not contain this option and take the information set in your provider’s email account, but this weak implement in the iOS settings menu a new field where you can enter the name you want to see addressed. Unfortunately it currently only works with Gmail email accounts, so don’t use a different email service for this tweak.
According to American analysts, in April Apple will hold an event in which will present something new to the general public, but no one knows for sure what.

Tap to Notes and Tap to Remind are two tweaks released during last night in Cydia, and with their help we can generate quick notes and reminders directly from the Notifications Center. The tweak implements in Notifications Center two widgets that as soon as they are pressed redirect us to Notes and Reminders from iOS, there we are having the option to enter anything we wish. Each tweak also has a settings menu from the iOS application Settings, and on Tap to Remind we have the option to set shortcuts for more items of the Reminders application.
A few weeks ago we told you that Apple would lose ownership of the iPhone trademark in Brazil and could be forced to remove the product from sale. Well, some of these things happened, Office for patents and trademarks in Brazil announced that a company called Gradiente owns the trademark rights, and Apple will be forced to buy it from them if they want to use it. Although Apple has not commented on the decision, the Brazilian authorities say that a call will be made against the decision.
Brazilian regulators have ruled that Apple does not have exclusive rights to use the “iPhone” trademark in the country. The decision is the result of a local company, Gradiente Eletronica, registering the name in 2000, seven years before the US firm. But the Institute of Industrial Property told the BBC it understood Apple was pursuing an appeal.
Apple still owns the iPhone trademark for anything other than mobile phones, but the company says that the Gradiente should not have this right, since between 2000, the date of application for ownership of the brand, and 2012 they didn’t launched its products under this brand. Whatever the motivations of Apple, the brand is now owned by Gradiente, Apple could sell iPhones, but if they will be sued by the Brazilian company, will lose and will have to pay compensation to remove terminals from sale and then to buy the brand.
Gradiente markets in this moment in Brazil a smartphone called iPhone Neo One that costs $300.
Apple recently updated the iOS operating system to version 6.1, and an update version number 6.1.1 was already in progress. Instead of a general update, the company has released an update yesterday evening bearing this version number, but that is only for the iPhone 4S.
We all know that iPhones are made in China signed by Apple. Spy images of assembly plants would not be a surprise if we know that Apple has a very strict policy about these leaks of information. A series of such images with the iPhone 5S have appeared on the Internet and their veracity is challenged. We know that the phone will be announced this summer, but do not have much information about it. There are some who claim that Apple could launch a more affordable version of the smartphone and an iPhone 5S with plastic case, as we have here, it is the expected product.
