According to the latest report from J.P. Morgan analyst Rod Hall, the guys from Cupertino are very unlikely to equip the iPhone 6 models with the screens made of sapphire. The reason for such a step is the high cost of production of sapphire in large quantities. The analyst notes that using sapphire as the main material for the manufacture of 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone displays is about 10 times more expensive than using Corning's Gorilla Glass.
According to the latest report from a security researcher Axelle Apvrille, a new piece of malware has been recently discovered that is developed to hijack the ad revenue. It is called AdThief. Malicious software infects jailbroken devices, so if you have one, be careful while using Cydia. You see, the malware comes in the form of Cydia Substrate extension and it is nearly impossible for an average user to identify and get rid of it.
Today a new report appeared online that suggests that the next-generation 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will be nicknamed as the iPhone 6L. Apart from this interesting piece of information, several new images surfaced online that show us a bunch of leaked parts for Apple’s smartphone. These parts include a larger battery (I mentioned it in the previous post), a logic board and, of course, a front panel.
According to the latest reports from the Wall Street Journal, only high-end models of iPhone 6 will get sapphire-covered displays. The screens for other devices will be made of material that is much stronger than Gorilla Glass, but isn’t actually sapphire, sources claim. It should be noted that the reporters’ suggestions haven’t yet been confirmed, which means that all of the handsets may get displays made of protective material other than sapphire.
New photos from Dianxinshouji suggest that Apple may ship its next-generation 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones with brand new Lightning cables that feature reversible USB connectors. Looks like the guys from Cupertino managed to solve the problem with a cable, which never fits the USB slot from the first time. And that’s another reason to buy an iPhone 6 this fall.
A bunch of images showing something what appears to be a genuine iPhone 6 smuggled out of Foxconn appeared on the Internet earlier today. The device shown below looks pretty much the same as the iPhone 5s, however, it can boast of several noticeable improvements that include a larger screen and a new back panel. The design of the handset goes in line with all the previous rumors and reports. Still, there is no way to check the legitimacy of the photos, so I suggest you to take them with a few pinches of salt.
According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple's Asian supplier Pegatron has recently won a contract for the production of 25 million 4.7-inch iPhone 6 units of the 50 million that are expected to be shipped this year.
According to what Chinese insiders write, Apple’s iPhone 6 has entered a final product testing stage ahead of the start of the mass-production. Today’s report contradicts the report, which appeared on the Internet last month and which suggested that the next-generation handset had already entered mass-production. Looks like the guys from Cupertino encountered some manufacturing issues that prevented them from beginning the assembling process in time.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, the guys from Cupertino aren’t currently planning to launch a replacement program for the early-2011 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pro models, which have problems with GPUs that cause constant system crashes and graphics failures. Even though Apple employees are aware of the problem, they still offer no refunds or discounts on repairs of the affected computers.
According to the latest report from Bloomberg, the production of Apple's next-generation iPads will start literally within few days. The suppliers are reportedly gearing up to begin assembling the 9.7-inch iPad Air 2 and the 7.9-inch iPad mini with Retina display. Today's news about the start of manufacture of the tablets go in line with the previous rumors.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, Apple is currently in talks with major U.S. medical professionals concerning the possibility to use company's new HealthKit platform for storing medical data. Such companies as Mount Sinai, Cleveland Clinic, John Hopkins and Allscripts have been involved into the talks, Reuters reports.
Not only the embedded Apple logo and camera ring for the next-gen iPhone appeared today on the Internet. Apart from these two leaked parts, another one surfaced on a website called Apple.Club.tw. This is a leaked front panel for the upcoming 4.7-inch iPhone 6. You know what? Since it looks similar to the panel of the iPhone 5s, I think it is the panel that will be actually installed on Apple's new handset.
Several new images appeared online earlier today that show us something what appears to be the embedded Apple logo and the rear camera ring for the upcoming iPhone 6. The photos were spotted on Nowhereelse.fr and the parts shown on them look legitimate, that is why I think we can believe what we see.
It is Sunday today, that is why I have come up with a list of the most interesting posts of the past seven days. You may take a look at it below.
According to the latest predictions from a well-known and usually reliable Daring Fireball’s analyst John Gruber, the guys from Cupertino may show us the long-anticipated iWatch as soon as in September and not in December, as it was reported earlier.
