New iPhone 5S Photos: Dual-LED Flash, 1GB RAM, A7 Chip





New photos allegedly of the iPhone 5S clearly shows it's internal components, a dual-LED flash, and possibly a new A7 chip, reports MacRumors. The site received the photos below as follow up to photos previously posted which showed the interior and rear exterior of the upcoming device.

As seen in one photo, the chip carries an Apple model number of APL0698, suggesting that this is indeed intended to be branded as an A7 chip rather than a modification on the A6 chip found in the iPhone 5. The original A6 chip carried a model number of APL0598, with the A6X found in the fourth-generation iPad carrying an APL5598 model number, demonstrating how Apple varies the first digit for members of a given A-series family and increments the second digit when transitioning to a new family.

Other features noticeable include 1GB of Elpida DRAM, a dual-LED flash, and a main chip identifier of K1A0062. Previous chips had a number that started with N. It's suggested that perhaps this chip was produced by TSMC instead of Samsung.

MacRumors was also able to determine that the device was assembled in December 2012 making it a very early prototype.

Apple is expected to release the iPhone 5S this fall.

Take a look at the photos below for more details!

Here is how future low cost iPhone might look like



New renderings of the low cost iPhone based on recently leaked schematics have been posted online by AppleInsider.com.

On the left side, the volume controls are pill shaped, like the iPod touch, rather than circular, like the iPhone 5. The back corners of the device are also curved, bearing a resemblance to Apple's iPod classic. Aside from those tweaks, the anticipated handset is unmistakably an iPhone, featuring the standard home button and a 4-inch display. The leaked design is slightly thicker than an iPhone 5, and is expected to have a plastic back panel to keep costs down.

Here are the renderings:

Analyst predicts: no iPad Mini Retina this year, it will be released in 2014



DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim has issued a note predicting that the new iPad mini will not feature the Retina display many are expecting.

Apple is expected to refresh its iPad mini in the second half of the year. The new iPad mini will continue to use a 7.9-inch display with a 1024×768 resolution, but it will use the iOS 7 operating system and an A6 processor, in a slimmer design than the current generation. Another iPad mini is also planned for production but not until early 2014. That device is expected to feature a QXGA (2048×1536) resolution display and the iOS 7 operating system.

First benchmark results for the New Mac Pro



MacRumors reports that early benchmarks for the new Mac Pro have begun appearing in Geekbench.

The entry is appearing as "AAPLJ90,1" as opposed to the expected MacPro6,1. It scores 23901 overall. That's greater than the top scoring Mac Pro (Mid 2012) that scored 21980.

Supporting the authenticity of the entry is the listing of a custom build of OS X Mavericks, 13A2054, running on the machine. The listed motherboard ID is also one which was discovered in OS X Mavericks as corresponding to the new Mac Pro. The machine in question is running a single 12-core processor from the upcoming Ivy Bridge-E family, specifically the Xeon E5-2697 v2 running at 2.7 GHz. It is also equipped with 64 GB of RAM.

Take a look at the comparison chart below:

Why the iPhone 5 is good for gaming



The mobile phone is something that many people cannot live without these days because they do nearly everything on them from looking up information to talking to their friends and family. With full internet access you can research nearly anything on a mobile phone without having to change to PC, as well as this you can also watch films and listen to music never having to touch another device. What is most impressive is their ability to play games; the App Store on most modern phones is filled to the brim with thousands of games that you can download and play at any time. Online casino games have become incredibly popular with mobile phone gamers due to just how easy they are to play and how entertaining they can be.

Hacker Pod2g Says He is 'About to Switch to an Android Device'



Pod2g, the hacker who has been an integral part of the last few jailbreaks, has announced that he is 'about to switch to an Android device' after spending some time testing iOS 7.

After a few days of iOS 7 beta 1 testing, I must admit that I am about to switch to an Android device.

IMHO, this version of iOS is the worst move Apple did in a long time.

iOS 7 design is awful, it's slow, battery life time is the worst ever, it's full of UI bugs and crashes. OK it's beta 1, but still…

I am pretty disappointed by the features I've seen in iOS 7. No revolution here. No big news. Just kid painting.

Leaked photo of iPhone Gaming Controller from Logitech



A leaked photo of an upcoming Logitech game controller for the iPhone 5 has been posted online by Kotaku.

Can't tell you who gave it to us or where it was seen, but we can vouch for this image's authenticity. The controller is large enough to fit an iPhone 5. When iOS 7 introduces third-party controller support in the fall we'll see this thing, plus a bunch of others, probably. Apple evidently won't be making its own.

iOS 6 vs. iOS 7 User Interface Element Comparison



We already showed you an icon comparison of iOS 6 and iOS 7, but now developer Mpow has put together a comparison of the different UI elements in the operating systems.

Taking a look at the comparisons, you can really see how Apple stripped away a lot of the textures, gradients and gloss from iOS in favor of a more "flat" interface.

Speed Test iOS 6 vs. iOS 7 Beta [Video]



You can watch the testing on the video below. Keep in mind that iOS 7 is first a beta which isn’t yet fully optimized. The results are still pretty close which for all of the improvements seems to be a pretty sweet deal.
