Apple’s new 9.7-Inch iPad Pro, or, as it was called earlier, the iPad Air 3 will be released on March 21st, alongside other products like the iPhone SE and the updated Apple Watch.
Something similar to the leaked iPhone SE display assembly has recently appeared on the Internet. The images showing the aforementioned part have been first spotted on a French website called Nowhereelse.fr, so we can be sure they are legitimate and trustworthy. Contrary to recent rumors, the new 4-inch iPhone appears not to support the 3D Touch technology.
Apple has recently released two new iPhone 6s commercials called 'Live Photos' and 'Less Time'. As can be guessed from the names, the ads highlight two major features that make the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus different from their predecessors.
The first commercial shows us how the Live Photos feature makes the process of taking and using photos different.
As we already told you, Apple is expected to unveil the iPad Air 3 in March. Up until today, the tech specs of the upcoming device remained unknown, however, thanks to DigiTimes reporters and their insiders, now we know that the tablet may get a 4K display and up to 4GB of RAM. Together with a faster processor, this may make the new iPad a great choice for people who need a powerful, yet pretty small and convenient device for work and entertainment. The production of the tablet will reportedly begin in the second quarter of 2016. Such firms as General Interface Solution and TPK Holding will become the component suppliers.
According to the leaked images first spotted on a Taiwanese website called Apple.club.tw, a backlight assembly for the upcoming iPhone 7 has a relocated 3G Touch chip and flex cables that make it different from the part used in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Keeping in mind that the iPhone 6c will not support the 3D Touch feature and referring to the size of the components, we can assume that they are indeed designed for the iPhone 7. Apple.club.tw has a good track record, so the photos are most likely genuine and trustworthy.
Following the public release of iOS 9.2 last week, Apple has recently seeded the first iOS 9.2.1 beta to developers for testing. The next minor update reportedly contains a number of bug fixes and security enhancements.
According to the latest report from usually-reliable KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple may release the next-generation iPad, iPad Air 3, in the first half of 2016. Unlike the iPhone 6s that is equipped with a pressure-sensitive display, the tablet will get a simple 9.7-inch screen like the one used in earlier models. The reason for lack of 3D Touch technology support is reportedly connected with production issues, the expert claims.
According to the latest report from The Wall Street Journal, both Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will feature a pressure-sensitive display similar to the one iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have. Moreover, new flagship devices may be equipped with new USB-C posts supporting fast charging as well as better cameras optimized for low-light photography. On top of that, the South Korean tech giant is reportedly planning to add a retina scanner to the next generation of its premium smartphones. In terms of design, both handsets are expected to resemble the Galaxy S6.
Thousands of people around the globe are waiting for the release of the next-generation iPhone or iPhones. According to a number of reliable sources, next January we may see a 4-inch iPhone 6c featuring a 4-inch display, Apple’s A9 processor, Touch ID fingerprint sensor, NFC and a colorful metal body. Apart from that, later in 2016, the Cupertino-based tech giant will unveil the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones, which will get the support of 3D Touch display as well as a number of other new features.
Heating up the anticipation and demand for the new handset, designers create iPhone concepts. One of such concepts designed by Sonitdac is available below. It features a unique parachute system that may help iPhone owners avoid damage caused by accidental drops of the device.
According to the latest report from a market research firm IDC, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro may stop the decline in the iPad sales. Even though the researchers admit that the global tablet market will continue to decline, Apple may actually improve the position of the iPad on this market and even sell more tablets than in 2014. The reason for this is quite simple: the iPad Pro is a large tablet that can be used with a detachable keyboard. It is a good replacement of the laptop for photographers, designers, artists and all those who need an effective tool for work. iPad market share growth, however, will not be long-term, analysts add. In 2017, Apple will once again see a decline.
According to the latest report shared by Chinese insiders close to Foxconn, Apple may soon unveil the smaller iPhone with colorful metal body. In particular, the sources believe the company may announce the smartphone dubbed as the iPhone 6c in January and start selling it in February. This new device will get the support of Touch ID fingerprint sensor, but lack the support of 3D Touch technology used in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus released this fall. As to the price of this mysterious device, it is expected to be around $500-600.
The iFixit team has recently performed a teardown of one interesting iPad Pro accessory. This accessory is the Apple Pencil, which is sold for $99 separately from the 12.9-inch tablet and is currently available for purchase in a number of countries of the world.
As it was already mentioned on our website, the iPad Pro went on sale on November 11th. Together with this device, Apple released one smart accessory targeted at designers, photographers and all those who plan to use the 12.9-inch tablet for work. This accessory is called the Apple Pencil and this is a stylus capable of functioning on the 3D Touch display of the large tablet.
The Apple Pencil is equipped with a Lightning connector for charging and this is probably the weakest component of the device that can be easily broken by neglectful users while being on charge. At least you might think so.
Ahead of the official start of iPad Pro pre-orders in as many as 40 countries of the world on Wednesday, November 11th, Apple has released a new commercial showcasing the 12.9-inch tablet. The short ad is available either below or on Apple’s YouTube channel, so you can watch it right now.
