Like every Sunday, I’d like to make a roundup of the most interesting posts of the past week. This time they deal with recently-seeded OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 beta, new iWatch concept and Apple’s new CarPlay system, which debuted a couple of days ago at Geneva Auto Salon 2014.
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.
According to 9to5Mac, Mercedes-Benz has initiated to introduce an aftermarket solution to intall Apple CarPlay on older vehicles. CarPlay is very useful for drivers, it enables iPhone users to make calls, use Maps, listen to music and access messages just touching the screen or via voice command.
We’ve confirmed that at least Mercedes-Benz is looking into aftermarket installations of CarPlay that will allow older models of vehicles to access the feature. While the company confirmed that it is trying to get an “an after-market solution for previous cars” it couldn’t confirm when the option might become available. While there is no info yet on how the aftermarket installation would work, we’d imagine it will be a dealer installed accessory for select older models like Honda and others already offer for Apple’s Siri Eyes Free feature.
Below you can see a photo of CarPlay installed in a Mercedes C-Class.
Apple has nearly finished the demolition of the old HP campus on the territory, where the company plans to build its new headquarters. Below you may take a look at a couple of photos taken by Apple Toolbox. These images once again prove that the work on Apple Campus 2 goes on.
Two images have recently leaked online that show a bezel-less iPhone 6 front panel, Nowhereelse reports. The photos have been spotted on a Chinese website Sina Weibo, however, now they seem to be deleted.
Looks like not only Apple and Samsung are currently working on their smartwatches. Another tech giant - Google - is expected to release its own wearable gadget as soon as this year.
It is Sunday today, so looks like it’s time for me to take a brief look at the most interesting stories of the last week.
As many of you know, Apple is expected to officially release a new OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 very soon, that’s why the guys from Cupertino seeded another beta to developers for testing. Apart from that, Apple released iOS 7.0.6 and Evad3rs came up with new Evasi0n7.
Another iPhone caught fire due to faulty battery, which suddenly exploded. This time it’s iPhone 5s. It is not the first time when Apple’s handset bursts into flames, however, looks like this time nobody got any injuries.
A concept of a new Apple product called 'iBand 'was presented by T3. It is a fitness band.
While rumours have been rife over the past twelve months that an Apple iWatch could be on the way, we here at T3 think there are other avenues for Cupertino to explore. Lifestyle bands such as the Nike+ Fuelband SE and Fitbit Force are swiftly becoming the go-to wearables of choice. At the CES trade show in Vegas last month, it seemed every tech firm in business was planning a fitness tracker of some sort or another. Naturally then, we here at T3 Towers began to wonder if Apple could lean towards a health and lifestyle band instead of a smartwatch?
Following today’s rumor claiming that the would-be iPhone 6 will get an 8 megapixel camera, another report from Chinese website IT168 indicates that Apple’s next generation handset will be equipped with at least 10MP sensor with an aperture of f/1.8 and and new lenses.
Today Apple has released a new video featuring the filming process of the special ad video commemorating Mac 30th anniversary.
Capturing the essence of the moment and it being truthful as seen through the prism of this device is really rather lovely.
Tim Cook is currently in the United Arab Emirates. Yesterday he was spotted posing for photos at Virgin Megastore at the Al Wahdi Mall in Abu Dhabi and today, people say, he visited Dubai Mall.
After purchasing a music player, smartphone or tablet many users think of buying new headphones to replace original ones. Indeed some people just want a better sound quality and user experience, others search for a replacement of already broken ones.

These on ear type headphones have professionally-tuned 40mm neodymium drivers that must deliver excellent sound. There is also a microphone, so Hitz MA2600 can be used to make calls as well. Two options for color - black and white. Official web page positions Hitz MA2600 as a premium headset for music and calls. We are sure it is also good for movies and games.
Apple may soon start working on a brand new MacBook. This laptop is expected to get a two-sided display with the touch input means on the lid, moreover, one of the screens will serve as a solar power supply. And what’s most important about such form factor is that it is patented.
Alex Casabò, an industrial designer, has recently created a beautiful and incredibly realistic concept of the next-generation iPhone. It looks pretty much the same as the current iPhone 5s; at the same time, it can boast of larger and better screen and a number of minor improvements.
