IPhone SE, "The most powerful 4-inch phone ever created", according to the glowing words of Tim Cook, was unveiled on Monday, March 21. Under the big spotlight of Apple's latest product launch event, there comes up a small iPhone unsurprisingly. Compared to iPhone 6 and 6plus series, iPhone SE is more pocket -friendly, retaining the body design of the 5S. Also, it uses nearly the same hardware inside as the current year’s iPhone 6s.Thus, its speed will be guaranteed. This isn’t just a phone for people looking to save money. Speaking of money, the starting price of iPhone SE is $399 — where no iPhone has gone before.

Key words: small, speedy, cheap

QuickTime Player

QuickTime Player

QuickTime Player is an extensible multimedia framework developed by Apple Inc. It is now available free of charge for both OS X and Windows operating systems. The main function is similar to VLC Media Player including handling various formats of digital video, picture, sound, panoramic images, and interactivity. The following are the main features.

  • Fully supports Mac OS X;
  • Encodes and transcodes video and audio from one format to another;
  • Saves existing QuickTime movies from the web directly to a hard disk drive;
  • Saves the embedded video in its original format or in a *.mov file format no matter what the original container is/was.

Difference Between VLC Media Player and QuickTime Player

For Mac users, QuickTime Player is the first choice since it is bundled with Mac OS X. For windows users, it’s better to choose VLC Media Player.
