The new iPhone 6 is rumored to be thinner than 6 mm according to a source, so much so that apple is having a hard time finding a battery thing enough to fit in. A Youtuber claims that he was able to get his hands on a case that is built for the iPhone 6 and you can just watch it to get a perspective, but don’t get too excited, it can be just a wave of fake hype too!
Almost everyone speculated that the iPad would be getting Touch ID last year but unfortunately the iPad Air did not get any. It was almost clear then, that Apple was facing a shortage that was evident during the sales of the iPhone 5s and hence Apple wisely decided to push it for a future release on the iPad.
A French developer has recently pointed towards code in the iOS 7.1 that points toward ‘Device 2’ being the iPad getting Tocuh ID support. But it is equally difficult to say if Apple is planning a new iteration of the iPad specially knowing that the company reported some not-so-good figures for the iPad Air.
What do you think, will Apple bring a new iPad this year?
Rumors have been our whole and sole source of what we can really expect from the upcoming iPhone 6. Till now we know that Apple is planning to make two devices with the later having a 5 inch + screen. It is also expected that iOS 8 will make debut soon, maybe even sooner in July.
The past days have spurred up a lot of rumors that point towards Apple testing an iPhone with a curved display. These rumors have made their rounds in the past and they refuse to die. A Japanese publication claims that Jony Ive is striving to bring us some nostalgia by bringing back the aluminum-curved design of the first-generation iPhone.
The only curved screens we have seen is that of the Samsung Galaxy Round and the LG G Flex, reviews of both have been mixed. So we really aren’t in a position to comment about it being featured on an iPhone. But what do you guys think, would it be interesting enough to have this?
The rumors are in full throttle mode as we move towards the day of the launch of the upcoming iPhone 6. The newer iPhone walking on the footsteps of the older one is being leaked in a similar fashion, this time around it’s front jacket has been snapped.
Leaks that are generated from Asian factories should always be taken with a grain of salt since their credibility is always doubtful. If this image turns out to be true, this means that Apple is really getting in the recent trend of big size smartphones that it is expected to.
We are confident about the fact that there would be numerous leaks before D-day, so be sure to check back!
Apple is rumored to make more than one new iPhone this year with the later being 5.5″ inches tall. Obviously with the added real estate, if the pixel density is to stay the same then the resolution has to increase.
KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi-Kuo predicts that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will sport a 1334×750 Retina display at 326 pixels per inch, while the 5.5″ will see a 1920×1080 screen at 401 PPI. While this means that at 326 PPI display of the 4.7-inch model retains the current resolution that we find in the iPhone 5s, the latter one will have a different resolution altogether.
On the specs side the predictions are that it will be housing the same awesome Touch ID technology with a latest A8 processor with 1 GB of RAM and a 10 to 20 percent narrower bezel but still the same 8 Megapixel camera.
The more we read about iOS 8 and learn how Apple is targeting fitness with deeper integration in the system, the more we get confident about the fact that the iWatch is not far away from seeing the light of day.
While the wearable tech. scenario is not new anymore considering that the competition is already catching up, with the latest announcement of Android Wear and partners like Motorola and LG, things are more heated up then ever. So how is Apple planning to differentiate themselves? The latest rumor suggests and interesting addition of a UV sensor which shall help users from getting excessive exposure to sun and avoid unnecessary sunburn.
According to the source, the device will include a special chip to measure this:
These chips measure UV exposure to aid those with elevated risk of sunburn or just a general concern about excessive sun exposure, and we believe they may be of appealing to OEMs looking to differentiate in a crowded market. To that end, while these products have seen little public hype thus far, we believe SLAB has a win in Apple’s upcoming iWatch (late 2H14 or early 2015).
The last line does sort of give you an idea about when we should be expecting the iWatch!
It has been the ground where iconic Macs and the iPhones have been released, so what do we expect this WWDC to bring? Well, just like last year, Tim Cook’s keynote speech would bring along with it, the iOS 8 / iOS 7.x whatever it may be called to be released. On the hardware side of things, mystery of the new iPhone might not be unraveled so soon with the latest rumors suggesting a September launch.
While there is a long expected and rumored iWatch due to be released, and since this is a developer conference we may see the actual hardware itself with tools for developers.
Today we find a patent for the bayonet application that offers more concrete information as to how Apple plans to pull it off. The bayonet should probably be able to help snap on and off the lens. Obviously, registering a patent doesn’t make it mandatory for it to make it to the next iPhone, but seeing the number of experiments Apple is heard to be performing, it shouldn’t definitely be ruled out.
There wearable space in the tech industry is the hottest spot to be at, and every giant in the industry is trying their best to deliver the most seemless and friendly experience onto their users wrists, faces and what not.
The Financial Times says that Apple has been in direct contact with many employees from Swiss watchmaker Hublot, and has met little success in actually getting anybody interested. The report has Hublot executives speaking directly about the matter, and stating that:
“Apple has contacted some of my employees – I saw the emails personally,” Mr Biver told a Swiss publication, claiming that all those who had been contacted refused the iPhone maker’s advances.”
This leaves many folks out there in deep concern since people interested in getting themselves a piece of wearable tech were expecting Apple to come out with something big, seeing them struggling is disappointing.
For the next big launch of this year, people have started their guesses, it’s time for some rumors to step in, beginning with WWDC 2014 which was earlier expected to be held in June but more and more rumors say, no luck till September!
Sources from Japan are claiming that we shouldn’t expect a launch for the iPhone 6 smartphones before September of this year. The reason why these rumors are credible is because these are the same exact Japanese sources that gave the exact announcement date for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in 2013.
If Apple wants to retain mindshare, they better act fast because HTC and Samsung already have!
