Like every Sunday, I’ve come up with a list of most interesting stories of the last 7 days. Without wasting time, let’s take a look at these posts.
A company called Japan Display has recently announced the development of a 5.5-inch Quad HD (WQHD) display with a resolution of 1440x2560. As we already know, the displays for Apple’s iPhone 6 will be manufactured at Sharp's, Japan Display's and LG Electronics’ manufacturing facilities. This means that the next-gen iPhone may be equipped with a brand new display I mentioned above.
A new iPhone 6 concept has recently appeared on the Internet. This time it’s a model created by SET Solution and I must admit, it looks very realistic. As the authors of the concept say, they’ve gathered the most plausible rumors on the Internet and tried to create the device, which can actually resemble Apple’s creation. Here’s what they’ve come up with, take a look.
Apple and its partner GT Advanced Technologies are currently planning to expand operations at the Arizona sapphire plant. Doing so, the companies hope to increase the output of the manufacturing facility. However, it is still unknown what components (aside from sapphire screens) would that ‘expanded’ factory produce.
As you probably know, Microsoft on Thursday released its long-anticipated Office for iPad. The office suite consists of three apps, namely, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Just two days after the official release, these apps are now ranking as top three free apps on the App Store. What a successful debut, huh?
The evad3rs on Friday released an updated evasi0n7 jailbreak utility. It is still impossible to jailbreak iPhone 5, 5c and 5s running iOS 7.1, however, evasi0n7 1.0.8 brings support for iOS 7.0 build 11A466.
An image showing the purported schematics for Apple’s long-anticipated iPhone 6 has recently appeared on the Internet. Whether the photo is legitimate or not is still a question as the company from Cupertino hasn’t yet confirmed that it is working on a next-gen smartphone.
Apple on Tuesday seeded a new OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 beta to developers for testing. The release comes about two weeks after the previous OS X version. This week’s build is number 13D28 and I must say it contains a couple of important bug fixes. However, no new features were spotted.
A new useful tweak has recently appeared on Cydia. It’s called QuickPass and it is a simple tool that allows you to disable the passcode lock within just one tap in the Settings menu. If you have children who enjoy playing games on your iPhone and if you’re tired of typing in the password each time they lock the screen, this tweak is surely what you need.
I’ve got some good news for those iPhone 4s users, who plan to jailbreak their iPhones running iOS 7.1. It is possible to hack the older models of Apple’s smartphones. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should upgrade to the latest version of iOS right now. And here’s why.
A new iPhone 6 concept has recently appeared on the Internet. The device resembles the existing iPod nano and looks surprisingly ugly. Why surprisingly? You see, the concept was created by well-known designers, so it should have been beautiful.
As you know, Apple’s first-gen iPhone was released in 2007. The development of the device, however, began much earlier - in 2004. This is what Greg Christie, Apple senior software engineer, revealed in an interview to The Wall Street Journal a couple of days ago.
Apple on Tuesday released Safari 7.0.3 and Safari 6.1.3 Seed 2 to developers for testing. The release comes just a week after the company from Cupertino seeded first Safari 7.0.3 and Safari 6.1.3 betas. Are there any new features or enhancements? No, I don’t think so.
According to Forbes, Apple has sold about 500 million iPhones. It took the company from Cupertino nearly 7 years to accomplish this task. The figure includes all models and all versions of the smartphone released after 2007.
An interesting video has been recently uploaded to YouTube. The clip shows excavators destroying former Hewlett-Packard headquarters buildings ahead of the construction of Apple’s new ‘Spaceship’ campus. The short video seems to be legitimate. You may take a look at it below.
Update: The original video has been removed from YouTube, but you may take a look at another one.
