Amazon Japan has jumped the gun and has listed the iPhone 6. The specs mentioned in the listing include a 4.7-inch display, dimensions of 13 x 6.5 x 0.7cm and weight of 113 grams. Apart from that we also know that the next iPhone will be released sometime in the month of September. Amazon had also listed the price of the 64GB US Version as $1380 which is far from final pricing.
There will also be a bigger 5.5 inch iPhone 6 sometimes this year.
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?
We are getting closer to probably the most anticipated smartphone launch of the year. This is special and big for two reasons – all other OEMs have already released their flagships for this year and Apple is bringing a relatively new and big form factor to the iPhone 6 – probably the biggest bump in size since the inception of the iPhone.
So obviously we all hate waiting and thanks to a couple of sources that have manufactured dummies based on leaked dimensions, the final product is something like seem above and below :
Also a source that has had access to the iPhone 6 claims that the display would be a bit curved to enable a smooth transition from surface to surface. There will obviously be a difference between this and the final design, but we are pretty close to seeing a final prototype.
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?
Today what we are seeing something that is precision engineered to look like a real life 5.5 inch iPhone 6. The space grey version can be see above, it has a bigger and prominent screen on the front.Instead of chamfered edges, it has rounded edges. The golden version can be seen below.
According to reports, we should expect a faster, A8 chip, with improved battery life, and probably a larger screen resolution. These are said to be the closest to the final version of the iPhone. Do they impress you?
This year’s iPhone is going to be bigger in size and push the limits on the amount of metal used on the surface. The Apple logo would be used as a cutout for antennas. Either wireless charging or NFC may see it’s presence on the iPhone 6 too. Shown above are shots leaked by a Taiwanese celebrity. Many sources bet that this might be the real deal, and what we are looking at may finally end up on retail shelves.
Either way, we are getting near to the launch, hopefully more details on their way.
So Apple announced the much awaited and rumored iOS 8 today, and while there might not be groundbreaking differences on the surface, there are quite a lot inside the system, it is indeed difficult to rate them, so here are 5 features in random order, that we think are really important when talking about iOS 8
Interactive Notifications :
So if switching between multiple accounts on different networks and replying to emails make you go crazy since it makes you quit your current app, Interactive Notifications pop on the top edge of the screen with in-line reply options, even for third-party apps with a crazy level of interaction available.
Handsfree Siri :
So you’re in love with your iPhone, but do not have access to the super cool Moto X like handsfree operations, iOS 8 got your covered here too. The new Siri on iOS 8 would let you operate and interact handsfree by saying “Hey! Siri” and then instruct it to perform a variety of different operations, even song search!
Third Party Keyboards :
Apple is still bridging those gaps here, a piece of functionality that iOS users couldn’t yet make use of is installing third-party keyboards, iOS 8 makes that possible, so now you can install your favourite swipey, gesture based, whatever keyboard you like – more personalisation.
Continuity more than convergence, that was the mantra behind desinging the communication between iPhones and the iMacs. Now your iPhone can interact with the iPad and actually peek into what tasks you are performing so that you can pick it up on your iPad or vice versa. It works with the new OS X 10.10 too.
HealthKit & HomeKit :
Turns out those rumors about Apple going deep into the health space were true. HealthKit is the all in one consolidated space for all your health apps that track your health via smartbands,etc. It not only monitors data, but can also report such critical information to your doctor and even help you take an appointment.
HomeKit is Apples take at home automation. Various manufacturers with different connected hardware have a common tunnel of interaction with HomeKit. Data from your iPhone or iPad can be used to send commands and check status and now, even Siri can catch phrases like, ” It’s time to sleep” to shut down you garage door, etc.
Obviously there a lot of features that we haven’t mentioned here that make iOS 8 the evolutionary update that it is. Which is your favourite one?
We are just less than a day away from WWDC where Apple is set to surprise us by more than just updates of the iOS and Mac OS X. However, a leaked presentation from the venue itself shows off pictures of the iPhone in different angels.
We get three different angles of this alleged new iPhone 6 model, and all line up with what we are looking to expect. From what we can make out from the video, the phone is definitely bigger and made of metal, its safe to say we aren’t looking at a plastic body. The iPhone on the outside looks shockingly similar to the mock up and leaks that we have seen earlier.
How many of you’ll think that Apple will indeed be bringing a new iPhone tomorrow?
