Apple’s representatives of environmental task group are visiting Indonesia to find out whether tin is really supplied from illegal mines.
Bangka Island, located in Indonesia, is the world center of tin production. Recently, rumors appeared of illegal and unregulated mines operating in the region. That is why Apple initiated a fact-finding visit to carry out a study of local mines so that the situation was under control.
Apple works with nearly 250 suppliers who use tin in producing components. It remains to be seen whether the tin is illegal or not. Meanwhile, Samsung admitted using illegally mined tin in its products.
Judging by official opening weekend numbers and quarterly earnings reports, it took Apple 25 days to ship 20 million items, a month less than Samsung figure. Moreover, over the launch period Apple shipped 805,000 units per days, whereas Samsung sold half as many, about 333,000.
Apple has invented flexible components that will suit its much-rumored iWatch. Apart from flexible battery, flexible displays that can wrap around the wrist were also patented earlier. The invention can be used for any bendable product. Apple describes that the components can be employed in “wristwatches, calculators, laptop computers, tablet computers, and/or music players, to name but a few.”
Flexible battery packs for use in electronic devices are disclosed. In one embodiment of the present disclosure, the flexible battery pack may include a plurality of cells, such as galvanic or photovoltaic cells. The battery pack also may include a plurality of laminate layers coupled to the cells that include a top laminate layer and a bottom laminate layer. An adhesive may be used to couple the top and bottom laminate layers together such that each of the plurality of cells is isolated from each other. This arrangement may allow the battery to be shaped to fit a form factor of the electronic device. This arrangement also may allow one or more of the cells to be selectively removed from the plurality, which may be desirable from a manufacturing perspective.
So we may assume that these published patents will heat up the rumors about mysterious iWatch.
Based on the information from WeiPhone low-cost iPhone is expected to have yellow, red, and green shells. There were also many rumors regarding new iPhone's dimentions. The renderings show a slightly thicker device than the iPhone 5, measuring at 8.5 mm thick compared to 7.6 mm for the iPhone 5. The lower-cost iPhone is also slightly taller and wider than the iPhone 5 to account for the thicker plastic shell.
Apple is expected to release new iPhone this fall. Take a look at more pictures:
There is no A5+ bootrom exploit, by anyone. Not even a bootrom dump. Nothing.
The bootrom exploit can devices permanently vulnerable to a tethered jailbreak regardless of iOS version. The last bootrom exploit was limera1n found by Geohot which supported A4 devices like iPhone 4 and below.
New photos allegedly of the iPhone 5S clearly shows it's internal components, a dual-LED flash, and possibly a new A7 chip, reports MacRumors. The site received the photos below as follow up to photos previously posted which showed the interior and rear exterior of the upcoming device.
As seen in one photo, the chip carries an Apple model number of APL0698, suggesting that this is indeed intended to be branded as an A7 chip rather than a modification on the A6 chip found in the iPhone 5. The original A6 chip carried a model number of APL0598, with the A6X found in the fourth-generation iPad carrying an APL5598 model number, demonstrating how Apple varies the first digit for members of a given A-series family and increments the second digit when transitioning to a new family.
Other features noticeable include 1GB of Elpida DRAM, a dual-LED flash, and a main chip identifier of K1A0062. Previous chips had a number that started with N. It's suggested that perhaps this chip was produced by TSMC instead of Samsung.
MacRumors was also able to determine that the device was assembled in December 2012 making it a very early prototype.
Apple is expected to release the iPhone 5S this fall.
