KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo, a popular analyst who made a number of accurate Apple forecasts, has published a few predictions concerning Apple’s upcoming low-cost iPhone 5C.
According to recent information, the iPhone 5C will coast around $400 - $500. In August it will get more than 700 million subscribers through China Mobile. It will eat into iPhone 5S and iPhone 5 share of the market, taking 25 and 35% correspondingly.
TechCrunch has recently confirmed that the gold iPhone 5S is not just a rumor, but a real device, which will be released this fall. This means that on September 10th we may see not only the traditional black and white Apple smartphones, but also a new one with gold, or as they say, “champagne” rear shell.
We all know that Apple will release a new product called iWatch and that this will happen no sooner that the next year. Before that event, enthusiasts can create their own concepts of what we know as the Apple’s wearable computer or a kind of iPhone’s remote and share these projects with the Internet community.
Apple executives - especially Jonny Ive - love the new iOS 7 design immensely, though a lot of users still haven’t got used to thinking that this is the future, the near future that every iPhone, iPad or iPod touch owner has to face. Anyway, the guys from Cupertino liked the new iOS look so much that they redesigned the iCloud.com Beta website using a very similar to the iOS 7’s pattern.
The ‘Jobs’ movie release is just around the corner and since the big event is said to take place this very week, lots of new details about the movie itself, about the actors, about the plot and whatever else leak online. Some of these details - if not most - are simply rumors and nothing more, so if you want to be aware of what we’ll actually see on August 16th - watch the video below. This is the interview with a ‘Jobs’ director Joshua Michael Stern and he talks about the making of the film.
According to Digitimes, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is delaying with components supply. Therefore, the launch of the iPhone 5S may be put off and Apple might ship “only 3-4 million units in the third quarter of 2013 compared to 10 million units as originally planned”. It should be noted that a similar report, only lacking exact figures and specifics, was published on July 15th. Besides it is not the first time Apple CEO Tim Cook admits that the plans of Cupertino company may be put off due to delays in supply-chains.
Mass production of the fingerprint sensors was originally scheduled to begin in May at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and then to be packaged at Xintec, a TSMC subsidiary, the sources indicated. However, the production of the sensors has been delayed due to issues related to integration between iOS 7 and fingerprint chips, as well as a low yield rate at packaging firm Xintec, the sources revealed.
An engineering team composed of engineers from Apple and TSMC has been dispatched to Xintec recently to help ramp up the yield rate for the packaging of fingerprint sensors, revealed the sources, adding that the supply chain will be able to start volume production of fingerprint chips at the end of August.
EleMount is an all aluminum mount for the iPhone, iPad, and other mobile devices.
With the help of this CNC machined mount you can put your favorite device wherever you want. Last but not the least, the design of the pedestal is elegant and modern. The elePads inserted into the base of the mount sticks to any flat surface, which the other holds your device of any size or generation, even if it is in a protective case. The eleMount base has a 1/4" 20 thread hidden there. You can connect it to tripods for improved smartphone photography and videography.
“With eleMount, I aimed to raise the bar for mobile device mounts, leaving bulky plastic design behind and using only the most premium materials and production processes to create the most beautiful, versatile and easy-to-use mount available today,” said Jose Sanchez, designer of eleMount. “Using precise CNC machinery to manufacture eleMount wasn’t cheap, but the resulting design and finish were well worth it. eleMount is in a category of its own and deserves to hold up our most prized gear.”

Ken Segall, author of Insanely Simple and the creative director of the Think Different ad campaign says that Steve Jobs considered killing Apple's professional line of products.
According to Segall, Apple is not supporting professional users. Mac Pro hasn't been updated in years as well as Aperture, the 17-inch MacBook Pro has been discontinued and the update Final Cut Pro did not leave up to user's expectations. Thus t seems that Apple will farewell the pro market one day.
I hope you’re sitting down for this, but Steve Jobs did in fact once consider that very option. This was back in the days when iMac had established itself as a global bestseller. During one of the agency’s regular meetings with Steve, he shared that he was considering killing the pro products. His rationale was as you might expect: consumer products have an unlimited upside, while pro products are aimed at a niche market that eats up major resources.

Apple is again raising the issue of patent wars with Samsung. Cupertino company is planning to ask a U.S. appeals court to ban certain Samsung devices that were found in violation of Apple patents. It is not long since Obama vetoes the ban placed on Apple products for a similar reason.
The company will ask a U.S. appeals court tomorrow to block sales of Samsung models a California jury found violated patents for the iPhone’s look and features. Later, a U.S. trade agency is expected to say if it will halt some Samsung imports based on other Apple patent-infringement claims.
Have a look at the high quality photos, that show the similarities and differences between the alleged digitizer and lcd screen assembly of the iPhone 5S with that of the iPhone 5.
As you can see, the main differences are in the the ribbon cables and the screw placement. This means that some modifications were made to the logic board. Unfortunately, as you can see, there is nothing that could prove the appearance of the rumored fingerprint scanner in the new version.
No enjoy the photos!
