Apple's next iPhone expected to launch in October with Qualcomm LTE chip



iphone4spr

Analyst Gene Munster with Piper Jaffray expects that Apple plans to launch its sixth-generation iPhone before October of this year and with LTE 4G connectivity. Last year's iPhone 4S launch was uncharacteristic for Apple, which had previously introduced new handsets at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June.

"It is more likely the phone launches in October given Qualcomm commentary around 28nm chip supply," he said. "We believe Apple will include LTE in the iPhone 5 as an important feature in the product update."

One-Third of U.S. High School Students Now Own an iPhone



iphone_education_apps

Piper Jaffray’ latest semi-annual survey of 5,600 U.S. high school students show that 34% of surveyed students now own an iPhone, and 40% of surveyed students indicated that they intend to purchase an iPhone within the next six months.

Such boom seems to be driven by low-cost options from Apple. Apple and AT&T dropped the price of the iPhone 3GS to free on-contract with the introduction of the iPhone 4S late last year.

In our most recent survey the percentage of teens that own an iPhone came in at 34%, up from 23% in the Fall and 17% last Spring. We believe the meaningful uptick in iPhone ownership among teens may be driven by the cheaper $49 iPhone 3GS (in some cases free). Interest in purchasing an iPhone in the next 6 months rose to 40% (another all-time high vs. our previous surveys). Purchase intent was at 38% in our last survey in the Fall.

Apple Offers Royalty-Free Patent Licenses to Push Proposed Nano-SIM Standard



ipad_2_sim_tray

FOSS Patents reports that it has seen a letter sent by Apple to the European Telecommunications Standards Institutes (ETSI) committing to offer royalty-free license to its nano-SIM design patents. Apple pushes “nano-SIM” design as the official next-generation standard to further reduce the size of the removable cards.

A perfectly reliable source that I can't disclose has shown me a letter dated March 19, 2012 that a senior Apple lawyer sent to ETSI. The letter addresses the primary concern of critics of the proposal. The FT said that "the Apple-led proposal has caused some concern among its rivals that the US group might eventually own the patents". But Apple's letter has removed this roadblock, if it ever was any, through an unequivocal commitment to grant royalty-free licenses to any Apple patents essential to nano-SIM, provided that Apple's proposal is adopted as a standard and that all other patent holders accept the same terms in accordance with the principle of reciprocity.

Such “nano-SIM” standard would enable Apple to design smaller and thinner devices or to utilize some of the space within existing device volumes for other components.

Concept Photos of the 'New iPhone'



ADR Studios has published concept photos of the 'new iPhone' featuring three Retina Displays, an LED powered edge, and 4G LTE.

First of all it's sim-less: it doesn't use a simcard by our phone mobile operator. It can grab your data directly by the mobile network, also in 4G LTE. It uses a new audio section, with two panel speakers, on the rear of it aluminum forged unibody. All the controls are now on the top and the edge is so thin!

The great news is the new iPhone haven't just one retina display. It has three ones! One strip screen is on the top, to show you all the network infos, clocks, notifications and so on. The bottom one is for App dock, multitasking panel and so on. The central one is only for the desktop: more space, more freedom.

The home button is integrated into bottom strip display and it can be activate thanks to the closer motion sensor. In addition you've a "led powered edge". You can use it to show the strength of battery life or to show you a preferred caller: you can choose the color thanks to the led edge dedicated app.

Here are some beautiful photos. Take a look:

Jony Ive Discusses Apple's Creative Design Processes



Jonathan-Ive

Apple design chief Jony Ive in an interview to the London Evening Standard revealed how the design process works at Apple. Ive told that prototyping is deeply integrated into the design process at Apple, and discussed Apple’s approach to creating entirely new categories of products rather than simply improving on existing ones.

Q: What makes design different at Apple?

A: We struggle with the right words to describe the design process at  Apple, but it is very much about designing and prototyping and making. When you separate those, I think the final result suffers. If something is going to be better, it is new, and if it’s new you are confronting problems and challenges you don’t have references for. To solve and address those requires a remarkable focus. There’s a sense of being inquisitive and optimistic, and you don’t see those in combination very often.

New iPhoto and iMovie apps can be manually copied to the original iPad



iPhotoiPad.1

Apple doesn't support its new iPhoto app, as well as iMovie, on the original iPad. The reason is obvious - the original iPad doesn’t have a camera. But the apps can be installed manually using Apple's iPhone Configuration Utility. iPhoto and iMovie seem to work well enough on the original iPad, although it lacks speed of the iPad 2 and memory of the newest iPad.

To install iMovie and iPhoto to the original iPad you need:

1. to install Apple's free iPhone Configuration Utility, available at http://www.apple.com/support/iphone/enterprise/

2. to buy the apps in iTunes, they'll be within your Music folder under iTunes/iTunes Media/Mobile Applications.

Apple to reportedly double 'iPad 3' RAM to 1GB



ipad3ram

A hacker and iPhone jailbreaker known as "Chronic" suggests that Apple will increase the RAM in its upcoming iPad model. Leaked debug photos purportedly from Apple's third-generation iPad show that the device will sport 1GB of RAM, double the amount of its predecessor iPad 2 that carries 512MB of RAM, the same amount as the iPhone 4.

Leaked debug photos allegedly of Apple's next iPad that surfaced last month showed a line of code that read "vm_page_bootstrap: 244276 free pages and 8396 wired pages." By multiplying the number of free pages by the size of a page (4,096 bytes), the developer deduced that the device would have 1GB of RAM.
