A large number of existing iPhone users may upgrade to iPhone 6 because of its larger display, claims analyst Brian Marshall of ISI Group. Apart from that, Apple’s next-generation handset may lure new users - those people who previously used Android devices.
The analyst believes that the company from Cupertino will release two iPhone 6 models, one with 4.7-inch display and one with 5.5-inch display. Apple is expected to unveil both smartphones in the second half of 2014.
Ahead of iPhone 6 release that is expected to take place either in July or in September, TechRadar has come up with its own smartphone concept. To be honest, it looks pretty much the same as other concepts. Except for one thing - there’s no physical home button. Instead, the creators of the video suggest that Apple will use a next-generation Touch ID sensor. Take a look at the video and you’ll understand what I mean.
Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6 may look very similar to the current iPhone 5C. This is what is written in the latest report by Mac Otakara. Apart from that, the report cites some sources, which claim that in terms of design the new handset will slightly resemble iPod nano.
A new concept of the new 4.7-inch iPhone Air was released by Sam Beckett. Let's have a look at the designer's idea of the coming iPhone.
The phone is only 8% larger than the existing iPhone 5S, this increase is to accommodate the larger screen. Some extra space could be potentially utilised by reducing the width of the side bezels and by also slimming down the top and bottom of the phone frame too. The depth of the iPhone Air is 7mm, coming in 0.6mm smaller than it's predecessor. This modest reduction in the device depth and larger increase in the width and height could help create a bigger space for the battery and other components.
It seems that ahead of the iWatch launch, every designer thinks he’s obliged to create its own smartwatch concept. And while most of these concepts look ugly and impractical, there’re some that are really worth paying attention to. Gábor Balogh’s iWatch concept is one of such.
This designer created a device, which doesn’t actually resemble a smartwatch. It resembles a classic watch and that it the point.
The iTunes Festival app won’t require iOS 7.1 as was reported earlier. This means that the official release of Apple’s new mobile operating system may take place later than this week.

A well-known concept designer from the Netherlands named Joseph Farahi has recently come up with a new iPhone 6C concept. The device looks very similar to the current iPhone 5C, but, according to the author, features a larger 4.7-inch display and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
According to the latest reports from various sources, the company from Cupertino will soon release its updated Apple TV. However, the exact launch date is still unclear.

Apple’s iPad Air won the Best Mobile Tablet award at Mobile World Congress yesterday, even though the company from Cupertino did not participate in the annual exhibition devoted to all kinds of new gadgets organized and held by GSM Association in Barcelona. I must admit that the tablet deserves the award.
A well-known sculptor named Dragan Radenovic has created a scaled down model of Steve Jobs statue, which is expected to be installed somewhere in Apple’s new campus, Netokracija reports.

SET Solution has created another iPad concept. This time it’s a 13-inch Apple’s tablet running Mac OS X - not iOS. And this is probably the most interesting thing about this tablet since in terms of design the device resembles iPad Air and iPad mini, which were released at the end of the last year.
