iPhone 5 for Mac PowerPC

Lately I’ve been getting so addicted to the Anime One Piece, that I crave just 20 minutes to watch an episode, in my “free” time, which there never seems to be enough of!  But with this week’s announcement of the new iPhone 5, I just wasn’t able to properly focus.  As Kylie said, I just cant get it out of my head!

I’ve already received a few e-mails from my readers telling me how disappointed they are because the won’t be able to sync the new iPhone with the PowerPC!  But I’ve got news for you…if you have a 10 year old Windows XP you can! LOL!

Each company has different policies and it seems that Windows has more support for the old OS than Apple does.  It’s sad and I think that soon Mac users will start using hackintosh more than the PC users do, it’s just getting to be “too much”.  Apple computers are expensive to buy and after few years (and I mean 2 year), are already obsolete and I’m not telling this just for PowerPC users.  Look at the Intel Dual Core, which can be updated to Mountain Lion but can not be used for Airplay!  Dual Core was replaced for i3/i5/i7 in 2010…ONLY 2 years ago!  Also, Snow Leopard it’s not compatible with iCloud and other applications that were released just for Lion/Mountain Lion.  So long story short, either you change your Mac every 1 or 2 years and spend around $1,200.00 for each purchase to keep yourself up to date, or you can keep your best machine as your main machine and buy some cheap (and very powerful) PC for half the price of a Mac and Hackintosh it to keep your devices up to date! (just thinking)

While completing this iPhone research I found this application that is PowerPC friendly and I hope for the release of an update that would allow us to sync the iPhone 5.  It’s not free, but for what it does, it’s totally worth it!

* PhoneView v2.8.4 – http://ecamm.com/mac/phoneview/ – PowerPC 10.5 (Leopard)

P.S.: They just announced that works great with iOS 6 – If you guys have the iPhone 5 and try this application please share the results with us.

Stay strong!
