According to Crittercism (via AllThingsD), applications crash twice as often on the iPhone 5s than on the plastic iPhone 5c or even on the last-year iPhone 5.

Qualcomm Backs Away From Negative Comments on Apple A7



Qualcomm spokesman has backed away from the statements made by one of the company executives concerning the Apple A7 chip capabilities. In case you missed that piece of news, Anand Chandrasekher, Qualcomm CMO has recently claimed that the new Apple’s processor is a "marketing gimmick".

According to AppleInsider:

The comments made by Anand Chandrasekher, Qualcomm CMO, about 64-bit computing were inaccurate. The mobile hardware and software ecosystem is already moving in the direction of 64-bit; and, the evolution to 64-bit brings desktop class capabilities and user experiences to mobile, as well as enabling mobile processors and software to run new classes of computing devices.

Looks like Qualcomm executives should think twice before they blame someone for something, otherwise, they can as well be blamed - for incompetence.

Martin Hajek's iPad Mini S and iPad Mini C Concepts



Martin Hajek, whose iPhone 5c concepts looked almost like the original Apple devices, has posted a couple of renderings on his website that show something he calls the new iPad Mini S and iPad Mini C.

Apple is expected to unveil its new iPad mini with Retina display very soon. However, it is still unclear when this tablet will be actually released - there’s no exact date. Some say, the company from Cupertino will announce the gadget in October and ship it in some weeks after the media event for reporters, but this is unlikely to happen as Apple is currently experiencing some manufacturing delays.

iPhone 5s Touch iD Sensor Fits Perfectly in the iPad 5 Front Panel



According to the unboxtherapy video posted to YouTube on October 2nd, the next generation iPad may be equipped with a fingerprint sensor. What is interesting, the existing Touch ID sensor used these days in the iPhone 5s fits the leaked iPad 5 front panel perfectly.

The author of the video took apart his gold iPhone 5s and transplanted the fingerprint sensor into the iPad 5 front panel. As we can see in the clip, it fits perfectly - unlike the old home button which is too big.

The company from Cupertino is said to release its iPad 5 this month. However, it is still unclear, whether this new device will feature the Touch ID fingerprint sensor or not.
