According to the latest report from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, in March Apple may release an ‘S’ version of the Apple Watch that would feature a better processor and battery. In terms of design, the wearable device will remain similar to the current model, the expert believes.
It’s Sunday again, the week has nearly come to an end, that’s why I believe it’s time to talk about the most interesting posts of the past couple of days. Nearly all articles this week deal with the upcoming 4-inch iPhone called iPhone 5SE and its tech specs. Apart from that, there’re posts that tell us about the iPad Air 3 that is expected to be unveiled in March alongside the aforementioned iPhone as well as the updated Apple Watch. Of course, you can find other articles worth your attention, so make sure you take a look at the list below.
As noted by usually-reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus may feature a dual-lens camera developed most likely by LinX, a small firm from Israel purchased by Apple last year. The 4.7-inch model, however, won’t get an improved camera system, the analyst believes. I must admit, this is quite a risky step that may impact the sales of the smaller model.
According to the leaked schematics showing something similar to the iPad Air 3 design, the tablet will feature a rear LED flash as well as four speakers at the top and bottom of its aluminum body. The image, which is available below, was obtained by Nowhereelse.fr from a reliable source who was correct in the past. I believe the device shown on the leaked schematics is indeed the next-generation iPad Air since it looks similar to the devices of the current lineup.
Last week, a rumor suggesting the smaller 4-inch iPhone will be called the iPhone 5SE, not the iPhone 6c, appeared on the Internet. Today, one interesting photo proving that the design of the handset will resemble the design of the iPhone 5s surfaced online.
A person who was allegedly controlling the development of Apple’s widely-rumored electric car codenamed “Titan”, the Vice President of Product Design Steve Zadesky, is reportedly leaving the company after sixteen years in Cupertino. Such a rumor has been recently shared by usually-reliable Wall Street Journal reporters. The reason for leaving such a successful company as Apple is reportedly connected with his personal choice, rather than with the results Zadesky demonstrated while working for the tech giant.
Aside from announcing the new 4-inch iPhone called either the iPhone 6c or iPhone 5SE in March, Apple may also slightly update the Apple Watch. In particular, the company is reportedly planning to release a major watchOS 2.2 update and unveil a number of new bands for the wearable device. As to the updated version of the smartwatch, sources claim it will be officially announced at a media event in September.
According to the latest report from MyDrivers, the long-awaited 4-inch iPhone will be called the iPhone 5SE and in terms of design will resemble the iPhone 5S, a device, which was released in 2013. The report contradicts other reports from reliable sources claiming the smaller iPhone will look like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. Nevertheless, since Apple hasn’t unveiled the phone yet, we should pay attention to every single rumor about the upcoming device.
A new video showing something similar to the widely-rumored 4-inch iPhone 6c has been recently published to YouTube by M.I.C. Gadget reporters. The video has been reportedly recorded by one of the Foxconn workers, so it is very likely that we see a real iPhone that may be released at a separate media event scheduled for March.
According to an email sent to the selected members of Windows Insider program, Microsoft is planning a rollout of its Word Flow keyboard designed specifically for the Windows Phone platform on Apple’s iOS. Since Apple’s mobile operating system now supports the usage of third-party keyboards, the release of the aforementioned one looks quite obvious and possible.
Microsoft has recently launched a special trade-in program for those who are interested in switching from the Apple Watch to the new Microsoft Band 2. Even though I don’t think that there’re people willing to replace their Apple Watches with something much simpler, looks like Microsoft hopes to lure more customers and increase the popularity of their updated fitness tracker.
Contrary to the most recent rumors, Matthew Panzarino of TechCrunch believes that Apple won’t announce the second generation of the Apple Watch in March. Instead of the updated wearable device, the reporter believes Apple will launch either the 4-inch iPhone 6c, or the updated Mac lineup.
Nine years ago, Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced a thing that changed the entire world. This thing was the iPhone. The big event took place on January 9th, 2007 at Macworld.
The original iPhone could feature a 3.5-inch touchscreen, 4GB, 8GB or 16GB of storage on board and a 2-megapixel camera and was a revolutionary device. Over 6 million iPhones of this generation were sold during the years of manufacture.
Since that time, many things have changed, but Apple’s iPhone still remains one of the most popular smartphones ever manufactured. Its design and functionality make this device the choice of millions of customers from all over the world.
Below you can take a look at the media event dedicated to the first-generation iPhone. Hope you’ll have a good time watching it!
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.
As it was already reported, Apple may be currently working on a new smaller 4-inch iPhone called presumably the iPhone 6c. The handset is expected to be unveiled in the first half of the year and get a number of useful features.
As rumors heat up the interest, designers start to create concepts showing possible designs of the device. One of such concepts shared by Ferry Passchier reveals an aluminum handset based on the look of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, but with colorful back panels.
