According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple's suppliers are currently ramping up the production of components for the next-generation 9.7-inch iPad Air that is expected to be officially unveiled this fall alongside the Retina iPad mini. The new tablet will boast of faster A8 processor, improved Touch ID fingerprint sensor and some other hardware and software enhancements. Reliable insiders also believe that the tablet will become thinner. At the same time, the size and the display resolution of the device will reportedly remain unchanged.
Several new images have been recently shared by Nowhereelse.fr, which show something what appears to be a battery for the upcoming 5.5-inch iPhone 6. What is interesting about the leaked part is that it can boast of the capacity nearly two times larger than that of the battery of the iPhone 5s. For those, who don't know: the battery capacity of the iPhone 5s is 1.560 mAh, while the same specification of the next-gen iPhone 6 with 5.5-inch screen is 2.915 mAh.
According to what people familiar with the matter write, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch won't be released until 2015 as it is currently in the engineering verification testing (EVT) stage. Before entering the mass-production stage, it has to go through the production verification testing (PVT) and this requires time.
A new video that shows us a device very similar to the fully assembled iPhone 6 has recently surfaced on the Internet. This is not the first video depicting the upcoming 4.7-inch handset, however, it allows us to take a closer look at the smartphone that is expected to be officially unveiled on September 9th.
A new video has recently appeared on the Internet, which shows us something very similar to the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 rear shell.

Microsoft released a new ad today, which shows us Apple's Siri compared to Cortana. The short clip is entitled Siri vs. Cortana – Mirror Mirror and features the iPhone 5s and the HTC One M8 for Windows 8.

Last week, a rumor appeared on the Internet that suggested that the guys from Cupertino would release a redesigned Lightning cable with a reversible USB connector. The rumor was followed by a set of leaked images showing the new cable. It looked as if Apple indeed decided to equip its next-generation iPhone with a brand new accessory.
As you probably know, Apple is currently working on its own mobile payment system based on the Near Field Communications technology. This is probably the main reason for the inclusion of the NFC chip to the company's new handset. Such a system will allow iPhone 6 users to make fast and secured purchases.
It is Sunday today and that means I have to tell you about the most popular posts of the past seven days. There're many interesting articles, so let's not waste time and take a look at them.
According to the latest report from Re/code, the guys from Cupertino are currently planning to set a price tag for the upcoming iWatch at about $400.

The cost of the long-anticipated wearable device will reportedly depend on the size of its display and hardware differences.
Luxury modified iPhone vendor Feld & Volk has recently shared a video of what appears to be partially working iPhone 6. The firm representatives say that they managed to assemble the device shown below from the leaked parts they got from Apple's suppliers.
According to the images showing an assembled logic board from the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 shared by Feld & Volk and a well-known analyst Sonny Dickson, the new A8 processor may indeed get 1GB of RAM. The photos once again prove the rumor, which surfaced on the Internet earlier this month. Nevertheless, keep in mind that the legitimacy of the images haven’t yet been confirmed by the guys from Cupertino.
According to the images that were shared on Friday by Feld & Volk, the next-generation iPhone will be indeed equipped with Qualcomm's MDM9625M LTE modem. The photos show us a fully-assembled iPhone 6 logic board with an A8 processor and some other interior parts of the device.
A couple of new high-resolution images have recently appeared on the Internet. These leaked photos show us something very similar to the iPhone 6 back panel with rear bands colored in a different way to fit the rest of the handset. This indicates that Apple's next-generation iPhone may indeed come in several colors, just like its predecessor. The images showing a leaked part for Apple's new handset have been first spotted on Nowhereelse.fr.
Although you may be tired of the posts connected with the upcoming iPhone 6 and its support of the Near Field Communication technology (NFC), I feel that I have to share a new rumor with you. This rumor suggests that the next-generation handset will indeed get a chip that supports the new NFC standard that is yet to be launched. Moreover, people familiar with the matter believe that a Dutch firm called NXP will become the manufacturer of the chip.
