New photos showing something very similar to the battery for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 appeared on the Internet earlier today. As you may see on the image below, the battery has a capacity of 1,810 mAh. If to compare this battery to the battery found inside of the iPhone 5s, we may see that its capacity only slightly higher as the capacity of the current Apple’s smartphone.
According to the latest rumors, Samsung will become the manufacturer of the A-series chips for Apple’s gadgets in 2015, not Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company as it was reported earlier. Today’s report comes from Reuters and cites KGI Securities analyst Michael Liu, who have reportedly talked to TSMC investors, so I think we can believe it.
Samsung has released two anti-iPad Air ads. The first one bashes the lack of true multitasking and the so-called ‘Split Screen’ mode on Apple’s tablet and the second one claims that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S’s Super AMOLED display is better than the LCD display of the iPad Air. Both ads are available below, so you can watch them and tell me what do you think in the comments section.

These firms include Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and Intel.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, Apple's handsets remain the top-selling smartphones on European market.
