iPhone 5s Touch iD Sensor Fits Perfectly in the iPad 5 Front Panel





According to the unboxtherapy video posted to YouTube on October 2nd, the next generation iPad may be equipped with a fingerprint sensor. What is interesting, the existing Touch ID sensor used these days in the iPhone 5s fits the leaked iPad 5 front panel perfectly.

The author of the video took apart his gold iPhone 5s and transplanted the fingerprint sensor into the iPad 5 front panel. As we can see in the clip, it fits perfectly - unlike the old home button which is too big.

The company from Cupertino is said to release its iPad 5 this month. However, it is still unclear, whether this new device will feature the Touch ID fingerprint sensor or not.

There’s a new bug found in iOS 7 and this time it deals with iMessage. Users claim that there’re some issues with sending messages.

Apple assures the bug will be fixed as soon as possible:

We are aware of an issue that affects a fraction of a percent of our iMessage users, and we will have a fix available in an upcoming software update. In the meantime, we encourage any users having problems to reference our troubleshooting documents or contact AppleCare to help resolve their issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes impacted users.

Looks like all those who have problems with iMessage have to wait for another iOS update. iOS 7.0.3, by the way, is expected to be released next week.

Samsung Will Still Participate in Apple A8 Processor's Production



According to the Korean website Hankyung, Samsung - along with TSMC - will be making chips for Apple’s future devices. Although TSMC is said to become a major supplier of the Apple’s A8 processors with 60-70 percent of the production load, the South Korean company will still have to produce the remaining 30 or 40 percent of chips.

As we know, the iPhone 5s is working on Apple A7 processor - the one manufactured by Samsung.

Despite the fact, that the company from Cupertino has signed a deal with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. earlier this year, it looks like nothing will seriously change. At least in 2014.

iPhone 5c sales are reaching those of iPhone 5s



Localytics has published a new report that claims San Francisco to be the best selling location for the iPhone 5s while in general the gap between iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c sales is dwindling.

After close to one week of sales, we found that, overall, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco held the largest market share in the U.S. for iPhone 5s and 5c activations. This is to be expected given the size of their populations. However the real surprise was that San Francisco came in third. Considering San Francisco is actually the 11th largest market in the U.S., its status as a technology haven also, clearly, translates to a culture of early adoption.

We then looked at the distribution of the iPhone 5s and 5c for each of the cities. Again, San Francisco stood out, showing the strongest preference for the 5s over the 5c (85% vs. 15%) among the top 12 major U.S. cities. Philadelphia showed the lowest preference with 72%.
