As you know, a couple of hours ago, at the “Spring Forward” media event, Apple announced its Apple Watch. Although the wearable device is not available for purchase yet, after the presentation, the reporters had an exclusive possibility to take a close look at the smartwatch and test its performance. Below you may take a look at the short hands on video showing the 42mm Apple Watch Sport tested by Jon Rettinger of TechnoBuffalo.
Apart from the Apple Watch, Apple has just announced another interesting device. As you might have guessed, this is the widely-rumored 12-inch Retina MacBook. Surprisingly, this laptop stays separately from the existing MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lineups: it’s just a MacBook.
Just as it was expected, Apple has officially announced the long-anticipated Apple Watch. In this short post, I will try to tell you about the most innovative features, prices and the start of sales of the smartwatch.
A new Campus 2 flyover video has recently appeared on the Internet. The 4K clip has been shot by a user nicknamed MyithZ, who is quite famous for his flyover videos showing progress at Apple’s largest construction site. As usual, the short clip is available either below, or on YouTube. You may take a look right now.
It is Sunday today, which means I’m ready to tell you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Let’s not waste our time and start discussing the issues worth your attention right now.
Following the video showing the iPhone 6 compared to the recently-released Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge in terms of speed and responsiveness, a new clip appeared on the Internet earlier today showing the work of fingerprint scanners on both handsets. Just like the previous video, this one was shot by PhoneArena reporters at Mobile World Congress. You may take a look at it below.
Earlier this year, I told you about the talks between Apple and Japan Display concerning the possibility of investing money in the construction of a new factory capable of production of displays for next generations of iPhones and other smartphones. Looks like these talks were successful as Japan Display on Friday confirmed its plans to build the new factory. The sum of money required for the construction is reportedly equal to $1.4 billion, which goes in line with several previous rumors and reports. The only thing missing is the confirmation of Apple’s plans to invest money in this project. However, secrecy is a typical feature of the tech giant from Cupertino.
According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, the long-anticipated Apple Watch, which is expected to be unveiled at “Spring Forward” media event scheduled for March 9th, will boast of improved battery, new notifications, 8GB of memory on board for storing music, Force Touch and other features.
As you probably know, last week, Apple’s main rival announced two new smartphones, namely, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Below you may take a look at one of the first videos showing the S6 Edge compared to Apple’s iPhone 6, which was released last year.
As you probably know, last week, a research firm BGR released a report suggesting that Apple’s iOS 8.2 will be released to users worldwide this week. Now the analysts claim that the release will take place next week as the guys from Cupertino decided to release final beta to their retail employees and carrier partners to make sure the new version of mobile operating systems works fine.
Earlier this year I told you that the guys from Cupertino were planning to launch a revamped music streaming service based on both Beats Music and iTunes Radio functionality. According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, the debut of the service won’t take place at the “Spring Forward” media event, scheduled for March 9th. Instead, insiders claim Apple will unveil its new creation at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June. The service will use the technologies Apple obtained after acquiring Beats Music and will have a monthly fee of $7.99.
According to the latest report from Strategy Analytics, the long-awaited Apple Watch may see the record-breaking sales this year. In particular, its market share may be equal to enormous 54.8% with 15.4 million units shipped. The analysts believe Apple’s sales will beat the sales of its rivals from Samsung, LG and other vendors combined. While it is only a report based on the estimates and people’s opinion, I must admit it looks quite realistic. However, the only way to prove its objectivity is to wait for the release of the smartwatch and for the official announce of Apple’s financial results in 2015 at the very beginning of 2016.
According to the latest report from Bloomberg, Apple has decided to halt the development of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Earlier this year, a rumor appeared on the Internet, which suggested that the mass-production of the tablet will start in the first quarter of 2015, however, looks like the supplier will begin assembling the device only in September. Such a delay is caused by problems with the supply of display panels for the device. What’s interesting is that it is not the first time the guys from Cupertino decide to pause the development of the iPad Pro.
As you probably know, at the media event scheduled for March 9th, we may see the long-awaited Apple Watch as well as the redesigned 12-inch MacBook Air and the updated 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air models. While we don’t have any substantial evidence concerning the 12-inch laptop, there are some things that point to the refresh of the existing MacBook Air lineup.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, Apple’s next-gen iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus may both get Apple SIM and 2GB of RAM. Both features come from the iPad Air 2, which was released last year. Apple SIM will allow users to select, which carrier they want to use on their own and 2GB of RAM will surely make the device more efficient. However, these changes may influence the battery life of the smartphone, which means Apple has either to improve the battery capacity, or make other components and the operating system consume less energy.
