According to the latest report from the New York Times, Apple has recently laid off dozens of its employees working on the rumored car project. The company has made Bob Mansfield responsible for the development of the self-driving electric vehicle and shut down a part of the project, that is why a number of employees now have to look for a better workplace.
Apple has recently announced that its annual Apple Music Festival will take place in London in September. The tenth festival will start on September 18th and end on September 30th.

Apple will also offer a live streaming of the Apple Music Festival to its users all over the globe.
According to the latest report from Nikkei, Apple has decided not to release a larger single lens iPhone 7 months before the release of the handset. The reporters claim that due to the pressure from competitors and poor sales over the last couple of quarters, Apple will release only one 5.5-inch model instead of two planned earlier, and that this model will feature the rumored dual camera. The information comes from an anonymous insider, so I don’t know if it can be called legitimate.
Even though first rumors about possible MacBook Air refresh in 2016 appeared on the Internet in June, there haven’t been any updates on the issue since that time. Today, however, a new report has been shared by usually-reliable Taiwanese website DigiTimes suggesting that Apple is still planning to update the MacBook Air lineup and will add a USB Type-C port to the machine. The new standard is becoming more and more popular, so releasing a new MacBook means adding the support for this standard as well.
According to the latest report from usually-reliable insider OnLeaks, the next-generation iPhone may be equipped with a slightly better battery. In fact, the battery capacity may rise from 1715mAh to 1960mAh. Earlier it was believed that the company may increase the capacity only slightly, from 1715mAh to 1735mAh, but today’s rumor is much more optimistic about that.

According to the latest report from usually-reliable DigiTimes reporters, Samsung will supply Apple with 40 million AMOLED panels for the rumored all-new iPhone that is expected to be released in 2017. In 2018, the figure may rise to 80 million units and in 2019 to 120 million units. Currently, Samsung Display is the main supplier of AMOLED displays for the Galaxy lineup. The orders from Apple and other vendors worldwide will allow the company to remain the main AMOLED display manufacturer in the world.
If you like rumors like I do, you might have heard that Apple is reportedly planning to add a new touch-sensitive OLED panel instead of functions key on the new MacBook Pro. Many things point to this, for example, leaked photos of the alleged casing for the laptop or references found in the latest version of Apple’s desktop operating system called macOS Sierra. But what if Apple decides to integrate similar OLED panels into its wireless keyboards? Below you can take a look at the concept showing how everything may look like.
A well-know designer Martin Hajek has recently created two new concepts. These concepts show us how the future iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus may look like and are based on the rumors that surfaced on the Internet in 2015 and earlier this year. Apart from the handsets, the renderings below reveal possible designs of cases for the upcoming devices.
Last month, a reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that Apple was working on an updated MacBook Pro model with an OLED touch bar instead of physical function keys. Last week, several images appeared on the Internet showing something what appeared to be the casing for the upcoming 13-inch MacBook Pro. Finally, today we can take a look at the mockup showing how the new OLED panel and the next-generation laptop itself may look like if Apple indeed decides to replace the physical keyboard keys.
Several days after the release of iOS 9.3.2 to users worldwide, Apple has pulled the update because of numerous reports claiming it bricks some 9.7-inch iPad Pro models. The company remains silent, but those iPad Pro users who haven’t yet updated their devices don’t see iOS 9.3.2 in the Software Update section. This indicates that the update has been indeed pulled and that Apple engineers are currently working on a fix for the problem.
It’s been a long time since I shared ridiculous or funny videos somehow connected with Apple or its products with you, so I decided to fix this tiny problem. Below you can find a short clip showing a third generation iPhone cut in two pieces.
The video of the process is available on a YouTube channel called “Cut in Half”, so I guess the iPhone 3GS is not the first thing these experts, so to say, have ruined. If you’re interested in details, to kill the iPhone people behind this clip have used an OMAX waterjet, which is a powerful tool capable of cutting all kinds of materials.

One of key investors has recently sold his stake in Apple. According to the latest report first shared by Business Insider UK, billionaire David Tepper has decided to end his relationship with Apple because of weak iPhone sales and unclear situation with the Cupertino-based tech giant and the Chinese market. As noted by the analysts, Tepper’s share was valued at about $133 million.
According to the latest report from a Japanese website Macotakara, Apple has changed its initial plans and won’t equip the iPhone 7 Plus (or Pro) with a Smart Connector. A funny thing about this rumor is that about a month ago, this same site, Macotakara, claimed all the rumors about the Smart Connector included in the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus were real and legitimate. It is up to you to decide whether to believe the latest report or not, but don’t say you haven’t been warned.
