Next Generation iPhone Component Suppliers



iphone

This is a list of component suppliers for the next-generation iPhone that is rumored to arrive in mid 2009. The component list isn't particularly revealing except it reinforces the rumor that Apple will be using a 3.2 megapixel camera from OmniVision in the next generation iPhone. The current iPhone uses a 2 megapixel camera. The suppliers will begin shipping in May and the first batch is estimated at around 5 million units.

Disconnect your iPod, make sure the SIM card is inserted correctly



9to5Mac has found a string within iTunes with the following statement: "Disconnect your iPod, make sure the SIM card is inserted correctly [...]". Is this a joke, mistake or Apple will create an iPod 3 with a SIM card inside to connect to the Internet?

I bet this is a mistake. But who knows..

iPhone OS 3.0: 802.11n and FM radio



radio_cassette_recorder

Over the weekend, hints of several additional features for the next-generation iPhone were revealed. Among them was the discovery that text strings in the iPhone OS 3.0 software reference a new Broadcom wireless chip, BCM4329, which supports 802.11n wireless connectivity. In digging through the specs for the chip, 9 to 5 Mac has discovered that it also supports both reception and transmission of FM radio signals. The finding, however, doesn't mean that Apple will necessarily enable these features in the new iPhone.

Apple patents a biometric recognition system for iPhone and MacBook



Apple filed a new patent that shows a new system of biometric recognition for the safety of iPhone and MacBook. Currently the only way to protect our devices is to use a security code, which is not safe enough. In the future Apple plans to integrate a sensor below the screen to scan our fingerprints when we execute the "slide to unlock" .

Other security methods may be that the voice recognition or facial recognition. This might include the future implementation of a front camera. Apple goes so far as to suggest the possibility of recognizing the user's distinctive voice or even collecting DNA samples to recognize a user's genetic sequence. Biometrics could also be context-sensitive and detect the shape of a user's ear before allowing a call to go through, for example.

Overall it still seems somewhat science fiction, but could be implemented in the next model of the iPhone this summer.
