Earlier this year, a rumor appeared on the Internet suggesting Apple was planning to release a new Apple TV with an A8 chip and a completely redesigned remote control. Last Friday, Matthew Panzarino of TechCrunch confirmed the rumor and claimed the new remote will feature motion sensors, physical buttons and a microphone for Apple’s virtual assistant Siri. Apple will also let developers create apps and games for the upcoming set-top-box.
According to a report from GizmoChina, the design of the widely-rumored iPhone 6c will be identical to the design of the iPhone 5c. This means the handset will get the same plastic body with colorful back shells. Does this mean that the device will be a copy of the iPhone 6 in terms of hardware? Well, we don’t know this for sure, but if to keep in mind that the 5c was a copy of the previous-generation Apple smartphone, such a suggestion really makes sense.
According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, the next-generation iPhone will come in a new rose gold color. This rumor goes in line with previous rumors and leaks suggesting the same.
The front panel of the handset will remain white, just like the panels from gold and silver iPhone 6. The back aluminum shell, however, will get a rose gold color to match the design of the high-end 18-karat gold Apple Watch. Below you may take a look at the new iPhone concept created by a well-known designer Martin Hajek.
One more indication of Apple’s plans to release a smaller 4-inch iPhone called presumably the iPhone 6c later this year has recently been spotted on the Internet. According to the report from usually-reliable M.I.C. Gadget reporters, at least one case manufacturer is currently gearing up to start the production of cases for this device. The cases may be released in October or November.
According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, the next-generation iPhone will feature a 12-megapixel camera with five-element lens and a larger sensor. The sensor inside the iPhone 6s Plus may be slightly better, sources claim. The information comes from Business Insider reporters, that’s why I think that we can believe it.
It is Sunday today, which means it is high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Let’s take a look at these posts right now.
Most of the articles this week deal with Apple’s next-gen iPhone and rumors about its hardware components and the release date. There’re also some posts that tell us about the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and about a new security vulnerability found in OS X Yosemite 10.10.5.
Several new images showing diagrams of the iPhone 6s logic board have recently appeared on the Internet. According to these diagrams, the logic board of the upcoming iPhone will feature a new SiP (System-in-Package) design. This design will combine several chips in one larger chip. In particular, the power management and the baseband chips will be embedded into the A9 CPU.
It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last seven days. As you know, the guys from Cupertino are currently gearing up for the release of the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPad mini 4. That is why there’re so many articles this week that deal with the rumors about the next-generation iPhone and iPad or leaked parts for the upcoming devices. There’re also some posts that tell us about Apple’s newly-released iOS 8.4.1 with Apple Music improvements and patches for the vulnerabilities used for Taig jailbreak as well as about OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 with security enhancements.
According to the latest data accidentally shared by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the guys from Cupertino are planning to release the updated versions of Bluetooth Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboard later this year. Unfortunately, there’s no information about the design of the new accessories.
Two other videos showing a leaked part for the upcoming Apple gadget have recently appeared on the Internet. This time we deal with the CAD drawing and the real iPad mini 4 rear panel purportedly manufactured by Apple suppliers. Both videos, which are available below, prove that the next-generation iPad mini will become the thinnest tablet in the lineup and that it will resemble the larger iPad Air in terms of design and shape.
As you already know, Apple is expected to release a new iPhone on September 9th. Even though the mass-production of the next-generation handset is delayed 1-2 weeks, a new video has recently appeared on the Internet showing the leaked iPhone 6s front panel with LCD assembly compared to the same part from the iPhone 6. The video has been posted to MacManiack’s official YouTube channel and is available below.
Apple on Tuesday seeded the fifth iOS 9 beta to developers and the third beta to the members of the public beta testing program. Both versions of iOS 9 are identical and contain a wide number of improvements and bug fixes. The fourth pre-released build of iOS 9 was released to developers two weeks ago and the very first beta was unveiled at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
Following the release of OS X El Capitan Beta 6 to developers for testing, the guys from Cupertino have recently seeded the fourth beta of OS X 10.11 to public beta testers. To be honest, this beta beta contains nothing new but bug fixes as well as stability, security and performance enhancements aimed at making Macs running this version of Apple’s desktop operating system more efficient.
Apple has recently seeded the sixth beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan to developers for testing. The release took place just a week after the release of the previous beta and about two months after the official announcement of El Capitan at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference.
Apart from seeding the second beta of iOS 8.4.1 to developers for testing, the guys from Cupertino have also made OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 available for registered developers. I’d like to point out that this versions in only a minor update that contains a number of bug fixes, performance improvements and stability enhancements. You won’t see any design changes or new features added to OS X 10.10.5.
