A bunch of new rumors appeared on the Internet today that deal with Apple’s iPad Air 2, new iPad mini and the long-anticipated iWatch. According to a report from Technews.tw, the next-generation iPad Air may get 2GB of RAM and the iWatch will be equipped with 8GB of flash storage and 512MB of RAM.
According to the latest leaked schematics shared by GeekBar, the guys from Cupertino are currently planning to release a 128GB iPhone 6 model. If the schematics are legitimate, in September we may see three devices: with 16GB, 64GB and 128GB of memory on board. Yes, this is not a mistake. As you can see on the image below, the 32GB iPhone 6 model is missing from the list, so looks like there will be no iPhone with such an amount of memory.
According to the latest report from 9to5Mac reporter Mark Gurman and an image posted to Instagram by the firm called Feld & Volk, Apple’s next-generation iPhone models with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays may get screen resolutions of 1472 x 828 pixels. While earlier it was reported that the new handsets will boast of the resolution of 1704 x 960 pixels, the aforementioned reporter managed to find some other proofs that confirm the new resolution. The proofs have been found in the latest Xcode 6 beta.
Several new images have recently appeared on the Internet that show us something very similar to the partially assembled iPhone 6. The images have been shared by a luxury modified iPhone seller called Feld & Volk. They are available below.
Earlier this year, a rumor appeared online that suggested that the guys from Cupertino were planning to open a retail store in the United Arab Emirates. Looks like Apple hasn’t changed its plans.
Following yesterday’s report from GeekBar that dealt with the rumors about the amount of RAM Apple’s iPhone 6 may get, another one surfaced on the Internet today that suggests that the next-generation handset may be equipped with a new MDM9625 LTE modem manufactured by Qualcomm.
According to the latest reports from BGR, the guys from Cupertino have recently released iOS 8 Beta 6 to select partners. It should be noted, however, that this is still not a gold master seed of the mobile operating system. Very soon, Apple is expected to release a final version of iOS 8 to developers for testing and after that, probably on September 9th, the new version of iOS will become available for all users worldwide.
Apple has earlier today seeded OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 6 to developers for testing. According to the latest reports from reliable sources, the new version of Apple’s operating system for Macs contains a wide number of important improvements and bug fixes.
According to what has been recently shared by a Weibo user nicknamed GeekBar, Apple’s iPhone 6 will get only 1GB of RAM. This is the same amount of RAM as can be found inside of the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. If the leaked schematics are indeed for the upcoming 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch iPhone 6, we may assume that in terms of the amount of RAM, Apple’s next-generation smartphone will be weaker than the existing flagship devices of the rival vendors, which already have 2GB of RAM on board.
As you probably know, every year ahead of the release of the new iPhone, both experts and ordinary people hope that the guys from Cupertino will at last equip the new handset with an NFC chip. Every year, such hopes collapse, but looks like in 2014 Apple decided to surprise its fans and add the support of the near field communication (NFC) technology to its next-gen smartphones.
According to the leaked schematics shared by GeekBar, the iPhone 6 will be indeed equipped with an NFC chip.
According to the latest report from J.P. Morgan analyst Rod Hall, the guys from Cupertino are very unlikely to equip the iPhone 6 models with the screens made of sapphire. The reason for such a step is the high cost of production of sapphire in large quantities. The analyst notes that using sapphire as the main material for the manufacture of 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone displays is about 10 times more expensive than using Corning's Gorilla Glass.
Following yesterday’s leaked images showing the interior parts for the next-generation iPhones with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays, two more photos surfaced on the Internet today, which once again prove that the smaller handset will get a 1.810 mAh battery.
Today a new report appeared online that suggests that the next-generation 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will be nicknamed as the iPhone 6L. Apart from this interesting piece of information, several new images surfaced online that show us a bunch of leaked parts for Apple’s smartphone. These parts include a larger battery (I mentioned it in the previous post), a logic board and, of course, a front panel.
Several new images appeared on two different websites yesterday that show something what appears to be new batteries for the upcoming 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models.
According to the latest reports from the Wall Street Journal, only high-end models of iPhone 6 will get sapphire-covered displays. The screens for other devices will be made of material that is much stronger than Gorilla Glass, but isn’t actually sapphire, sources claim. It should be noted that the reporters’ suggestions haven’t yet been confirmed, which means that all of the handsets may get displays made of protective material other than sapphire.
