According to the latest report from 9to5Mac reporter Mark Gurman and an image posted to Instagram by the firm called Feld & Volk, Apple’s next-generation iPhone models with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays may get screen resolutions of 1472 x 828 pixels. While earlier it was reported that the new handsets will boast of the resolution of 1704 x 960 pixels, the aforementioned reporter managed to find some other proofs that confirm the new resolution. The proofs have been found in the latest Xcode 6 beta.
Earlier this year, a rumor appeared online that suggested that the guys from Cupertino were planning to open a retail store in the United Arab Emirates. Looks like Apple hasn’t changed its plans.
Following yesterday’s report from GeekBar that dealt with the rumors about the amount of RAM Apple’s iPhone 6 may get, another one surfaced on the Internet today that suggests that the next-generation handset may be equipped with a new MDM9625 LTE modem manufactured by Qualcomm.
Apple has earlier today seeded OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 6 to developers for testing. According to the latest reports from reliable sources, the new version of Apple’s operating system for Macs contains a wide number of important improvements and bug fixes.
According to what has been recently shared by a Weibo user nicknamed GeekBar, Apple’s iPhone 6 will get only 1GB of RAM. This is the same amount of RAM as can be found inside of the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. If the leaked schematics are indeed for the upcoming 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch iPhone 6, we may assume that in terms of the amount of RAM, Apple’s next-generation smartphone will be weaker than the existing flagship devices of the rival vendors, which already have 2GB of RAM on board.
As you probably know, every year ahead of the release of the new iPhone, both experts and ordinary people hope that the guys from Cupertino will at last equip the new handset with an NFC chip. Every year, such hopes collapse, but looks like in 2014 Apple decided to surprise its fans and add the support of the near field communication (NFC) technology to its next-gen smartphones.
According to the leaked schematics shared by GeekBar, the iPhone 6 will be indeed equipped with an NFC chip.
The week has come to an end, which means it is high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. If you’re ready to read, let’s begin.
Several new images appeared on two different websites yesterday that show something what appears to be new batteries for the upcoming 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models.
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 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.
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.
