According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, one of Apple suppliers has been recently accused of violating the rights of its workers.

As noted in the latest report from The New York Times, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch will boast of flexible screen and wireless charging. The display of the wearable device will get a sapphire cover. Moreover, the same report suggests that the upcoming iPhone 6 will offer its users a one-hand mode. The reporters cite supply chain insiders, or, how they call them, "people knowledgeable about the product".
According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple's suppliers are currently ramping up the production of components for the next-generation 9.7-inch iPad Air that is expected to be officially unveiled this fall alongside the Retina iPad mini. The new tablet will boast of faster A8 processor, improved Touch ID fingerprint sensor and some other hardware and software enhancements. Reliable insiders also believe that the tablet will become thinner. At the same time, the size and the display resolution of the device will reportedly remain unchanged.
According to what people familiar with the matter write, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch won't be released until 2015 as it is currently in the engineering verification testing (EVT) stage. Before entering the mass-production stage, it has to go through the production verification testing (PVT) and this requires time.
A new video has recently appeared on the Internet, which shows us something very similar to the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 rear shell. The back panel looks just like it should look and goes in line with all the previous reports and leaked images. The short clip has been shared by Nowhereelse.fr and I must admit this is the first hands-on video that shows us this particular leaked part for the upcoming handset. This source is reliable, which means you can believe what you see. The video is available below, so you may take a look if you want.
Last week, a rumor appeared on the Internet that suggested that the guys from Cupertino would release a redesigned Lightning cable with a reversible USB connector. The rumor was followed by a set of leaked images showing the new cable. It looked as if Apple indeed decided to equip its next-generation iPhone with a brand new accessory.
As you probably know, Apple is currently working on its own mobile payment system based on the Near Field Communications technology. This is probably the main reason for the inclusion of the NFC chip to the company's new handset. Such a system will allow iPhone 6 users to make fast and secured purchases.
According to the latest report from Re/code, the guys from Cupertino are currently planning to set a price tag for the upcoming iWatch at about $400. It should be noted, however, that there will be iWatch models with lower and higher prices. The cost of the long-anticipated wearable device will reportedly depend on the size of its display and hardware differences.
According to the images that were shared on Friday by Feld & Volk, the next-generation iPhone will be indeed equipped with Qualcomm's MDM9625M LTE modem. The photos show us a fully-assembled iPhone 6 logic board with an A8 processor and some other interior parts of the device.
A couple of new high-resolution images have recently appeared on the Internet. These leaked photos show us something very similar to the iPhone 6 back panel with rear bands colored in a different way to fit the rest of the handset. This indicates that Apple's next-generation iPhone may indeed come in several colors, just like its predecessor. The images showing a leaked part for Apple's new handset have been first spotted on Nowhereelse.fr.
Although you may be tired of the posts connected with the upcoming iPhone 6 and its support of the Near Field Communication technology (NFC), I feel that I have to share a new rumor with you. This rumor suggests that the next-generation handset will indeed get a chip that supports the new NFC standard that is yet to be launched. Moreover, people familiar with the matter believe that a Dutch firm called NXP will become the manufacturer of the chip.
Several new rumors have recently appeared online, which deal with the new A8 chip that is expected to be added to the iPhone 6. According to these rumors, the processor will remain dual-core, however, it will feature a speed of 2.0 GHz or even more. Making a processor for the new flagship dual-core and not quad-core is rather a strange step. Nevertheless, we all know that even such a weak at the first glance SoC copes with the required tasks better than the chips with multiple cores found inside of the rivals' smartphones.
Several new images have recently appeared on the Internet that show us new leaked components for the upcoming iPhone 6. These parts include SIM card trays, home buttons, new embedded Apple logo, internal speaker and a vibrator motor. The images have been first spotted on Nowhereelse.fr, so I guess we can believe them.
As noted by people familiar with the matter, the handset will come in three different colors, namely, space grey, gold and silver. Moreover, it will feature an updated Touch ID fingerprint sensor, a faster A8 processor and a number of other improvements. The design of the gadget will be very similar to the design of the iPhone 5s. The most conspicuous difference will be the size of the iPhone.
As noted by Digitimes reporters, Apple may launch an updated MacBook model at the end of this year or at the beginning of 2015. The reporters cite Chinese supply chain sources and claim that the laptop will become slightly thinner. Moreover, they say that the manufacture of some components for the device has already begun.
As you probably know, because of the new larger MacBook model, the guys from Cupertino are expected to stop the production of the non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Air. Although these are only rumors now, I don't think such a decision of Apple's executives will be a tragedy for Apple fans.
Looks like the guys from Cupertino are indeed planning to announce their widely-rumored wearable device this year. However, according to what Re/code reporters write, the big event will take place not in October, as it was mentioned earlier, but in September, alongside the iPhone 6 release.
iWatch is a long-anticipated smartwatch that is expected to come in several different sizes and color options. It will boast of a number of sensors capable of monitoring the state of health of the user and measuring his or her level of fitness.
