The iPhone 6 is definitely happening – with a bigger screen with a higher resolution and a metal body unlike the one seen on any iPhone before, the iPhone 6 is definitely going to be interesting. Whats interesting is hearing news about an addition – more than a refresh, to the existing line of iPad minis.
There is a rumored iPad Air Mini with a body inspired by the iPad Air in works for a mini form factor. Images above were created by a graphic artist, but they look very convincing and life-like since the dimensions used are sourced from some leaked documents.
What do you’ll think, they look sexy together don’t they?
The iPhone 6 on it’s own is a hot topic of discussion at the moment but what has gained popularity recently is the Sapphire crystal display of the iPhone 6.
A bunch of tech people did a crazy gig in which they shot a carbon fiber arrow using a Carbon Spyder Turbo compound bow at 340 feet per second at an unsuspecting sapphire panel.
There are no surprises here, the iPhone 6 Sapphire display is not withstand to take such damage but, hey! who doesn’t like some hot glass breaking action over the weekend?!
A Youtuber has got hold of a leaked component that he claims is from the iPhone 6 assembly itself. The part he has showcased happens to be the Sapphire glass that would cover the display of the iPhone 6.
This confirms that the iPhone 6 will have a 4.7 inch display. The scratch test show that the iPhone 6 will have a hell of a durable display. The flexibility and durability of the display unit is also put to the test when the torturer bends the unit and it doesn’t creak or shatter.This is definitely good news for Apple and it’s consumers.
Apple being Apple would market it in their own way and make the iPhone 6 a huge success which such components, that is what we believe.
Apple has called for assistance of Patrick Pruniaux, Tag Heuer’s Sales & Retail Vice President. Another source has confirmed that Patrick is leaving Tag to work with Apple on this particular project. This is particularly to make sure that the iWatch is a smashing success and will be working close to marketing and positioning the product to suit it’s audience.
The iWatch however is not seen as a threat to any Swiss watch manufacturer, infact and they believe that luxury watch sales should be unaffected by it. What do you have to say about Apple sourcing people from outside, do they lack the necessary expertise for a new segment or is this just to market it better?
We know most of what we are expecting from Apple this year - there are going to be two versions of the iPhone – both are known as the iPhone 6. Two credible reports now seem to confirm that these phones would launch on September 19th.
While, a new source is claiming that the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c. Apparently the smaller 4.7inch version is the iPhone 6 and the bigger 5.5inch version will be called the iPhone Air. Again, this report claims a September 15th announcement. There are also additional rumors of an iPad Pro in the works – one for content creation professionals.
Even if these names don’t follow common naming convention, the dates seem practical. Which product are you expecting apart from the iPhone 6? An iWatch maybe?
2014 may just be the year of wearables taking over, with the build up of a lot of rumors regarding the Apple iWatch, we still do not have much idea since Apple has not said much except that they have the most amazing product category coming up for us this year.
Today what we learn from credible sources is that the device would be 2.5 inches on the front. That is massive if you consider that it is a watch. To give you a perspective, the iPod nano is 2.5 inches and that is not something that one would attach to your wrist. Let’s see how Apple intends to build and design this one. According to Reuters, Apple is planning to ship around 50 million of these within the first year of launch.That is a huge number for a new category of product.
It will also be Apple’s first device to come with wireless charging to make it a wireless in it’s true form. LG will be the prefered partner to provide these displays for the first batch of devices. October is the month we are looking at. With all these details, do you think it is worth waiting for Apple’s take on wearables? Or would rather succumb to the dynamism and open nature of Android Wear that is to be announced this month?
Well, it’s been a while since the latest version of the iPhone was out and discounts are not usual at this point of the year. It’s common to see this happen close to an iPhone announcement, but we don’t expect the next-generation iPhone to launch until June.
Right now they are selling the iPhone 5s for $384.99 for the 16GB version, the 32GB model for $455, and the 64GB model for $525 which is a crazy price drop if you are aiming for the topmost variant. On the other side, the iPhone 5c is available for $315 for the 16GB model and $385 for the 32GB model.
Umm… any catch you may ask?! These phones are available off contract but they are locked to Virgin’s network which is Sprint network. We don’t have any tip on how long this sale is going to last so head over if you have good coverage, you might just be in luck for some gold!
Apple has consistently been breaking it’s sales records with every iteration of their iPhone; rumors about the new iPhone 6 seem to be building since Apple has said that there will be a couple of rather new changes that they would be implementing this time over(maybe like every time that they do?)
Foxconn electronics, major manufacturer for Apple’s higher-end iPhones, is apparently expecting orders of as much as 90 million iPhone 6 units in 2014 according to the Chinese-language Commercial Times, which cited data from Citigroup Global Markets as indicating. To give you a perspective, the growth in 2013 was 13%, what this news would mean is that growth could be as much as 23%.
The Talkband B1 sure looks a lot more like a fitness tracker than anything like the Gear 2. The TalkBand B1, as Huawei calls it, also behaves much like such a tracker, measuring footsteps, monitoring sleeping patterns, and letting you record calories – essentially aiming directly at the fitbit fitness tracker.
The trick that the Talkband has under it’s sleve is that the display pops out and acts as a wireless Bluetooth earpiece. With a price of around $140 or 100 Euros, expect this device to be available this quarter.
Sonny Dickson tweeted out a few pics revealing a very slim frame that sure seems to match the sort of manufacturing work we’ve seen for Apple products in the past. While he admits that he’s “not 100% sure” that this really is the iPhone 6 back panel, it definitely looks the part.
And just ot give you’ll a clear perspective of how big this iPhone is compared to it’s previous version, 9To5Mac placed the back panel over each other via photo editing techniques and the bump in dimensions here is pretty clear. We have been hearing about this 5 inch + screen size on the next generation iPhone and that sure sounds good but are you ready for a bigger iPhone?!
