Apple to Release Next-Generation iPhone in August - Rumors





Yesterday I told you about the possible shift in Apple's usual product update cycle due to the release of the 15-inch MacBook Pro and the 27-inch iMac this Wednesday. Today a new rumor appeared on the Internet that suggests that the guys from Cupertino may release the next-generation iPhone as soon as in August instead of September. The reason for such an early release of the device is probably connected with the good supply of components for the handset called presumably the iPhone 6s or iPhone 7.

15-inch Broadwell MacBook Pro: To Be or Not to Be?



The shipping times for many 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro models have recently begun slipping to 2 or 3 weeks. This indicates that the supplies of the high-end laptop continue to decline. It’s true that the guys from Cupertino may unveil a brand new 15-inch MacBook Pro model with a Broadwell processor inside at the Worldwide Developers Conference scheduled for June. However, keeping in mind that these chips are currently deeply constrained, I don’t think that the official announcement is imminent.

Apple to Add New Features to Force Touch in Future?



According to a new patent application published earlier today, Apple’s Force Touch technology may be improved in future to allow users’ fingers to “feel” different textures, for example, wood or metal. Looks like the guys from Cupertino plan to add a special hardware component capable of simulating the surface of a certain material using different vibrations and temperatures. Frankly speaking, currently I don’t understand the purpose of creating such a technology, however, Apple will surely find a good application for it.

12-inch Retina MacBook Teardown by iFixit [Images]



The iFixit team has recently performed a teardown of the brand new 12-inch Retina MacBook. As it turns out, although the laptop is full of modern hardware, it is incredibly difficult to disassemble it. Consequently, when your MacBook stops working properly, you will have to give out a lot of money to repair it. This is probably the biggest drawback of the thinnest laptop ever manufactured by the guys from Cupertino.

According to the result of the tests, in terms of CPU speed, the new MacBook can be compared to the 2011 MacBook Air.
