According to a sketchy image showing something similar to the dual SIM card tray for the iPhone 7 that appeared on a Chinese social network Weibo, the next-generation smartphone may support the work of two SIM cards. The image has been shared by a smartphone repair shop Rock Fix, so I don’t think we should take what we see for granted.
If you like rumors like I do, you might have heard that Apple is reportedly planning to add a new touch-sensitive OLED panel instead of functions key on the new MacBook Pro. Many things point to this, for example, leaked photos of the alleged casing for the laptop or references found in the latest version of Apple’s desktop operating system called macOS Sierra. But what if Apple decides to integrate similar OLED panels into its wireless keyboards? Below you can take a look at the concept showing how everything may look like.
Two new images showing the front panel of the iPhone 7 have recently appeared on the Internet. What is interesting about these images is that they depict a touch-sensitive Home button instead of the physical one that was present in Apple handsets since the very first model. The photos also reveal narrower bezels of the front panel.
According to the latest report from Digital Trends, Apple will bring Apple Pay to the Web this Monday. As noted by the reporters, the company plans to announce the support of its mobile payments system on the websites of its several partner resellers during the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote.

A well-know designer Martin Hajek has recently created two new concepts. These concepts show us how the future iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus may look like and are based on the rumors that surfaced on the Internet in 2015 and earlier this year. Apart from the handsets, the renderings below reveal possible designs of cases for the upcoming devices.
According to the latest report from Kevin Wang, an IHS iSuppli analyst, the 2017 iPhone may feature a dual curve display similar to the one Vivo Xplay 5 currently has. Such comment has been found on the Chinese social network Weibo. First rumors about Apple’s switch to OLED and possibly curved screens appeared on the Internet earlier this year and suggested that soon we can see a major iPhone redesign.
Last month, first rumors about the next-generation MacBook Pro appeared on the Internet. These rumors suggested that the laptop will get numerous hardware improvements and a new design similar to the design of the 12-inch MacBook. There also will be a new OLED panel instead of function keys row, insiders claim. Looks like they are telling the truth.
A well-known hacker Luca Todesco who has successfully jailbroken iOS 9.2, iOS 9.2.1, iOS 9.3, and the yet to be released publicly iOS 9.3.3 beta, has recently showed the untethered browser jailbreak of iOS 9.3.2. To hack an Apple-branded device, the developer used Apple’s native browser Safari, which, as it turns out, is quite vulnerable to such threats.
The video below depicts the sixth-generation iPod touch running iOS 9.3.2 and the process of browser-based jailbreak. Unfortunately, it is very unlikely that Todesco will release a public tool for jailbreak. According to the hacker, he’s mostly interested in research, not actual hacking of iPhones, iPads and iPod touch units running the latest firmware versions.
According to the latest report from reliable insiders, in 2017, Apple will release at only one iPhone model with a glass body similar to the one iPhone 4S had. The report cites a statement made by Catcher Technology CEO Allen Horng, so I think we can believe it. In case you don't know, Catcher Technology is a company that supplies Apple with iPhone casings.
Apple is reportedly working on a feature that will allow to unlock Macs using the Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the iPhone. Sources claim that such a useful feature will be added to the next major OS X update, OS X 10.12 “Fuji” that is expected to be unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June. As it was reported yesterday, this same update will also bright Apple’s virtual assistant, Siri, to Mac computers.
As it was already mentioned on our website, Apple may be planning to integrate its virtual assistant, Siri, into OS X. So far, there have been almost no facts proving this intention, however, thanks to the images shared by reliable insiders yesterday, now we know how the icon of the Siri app for Mac may look like. As you can see below, the icon is pretty similar in color and shape to the way Siri looks and feels on iOS devices.
According to the latest report from supply chain sources, Apple suppliers have recently begun hiring workers for the assembly of the new iPhone that features a ‘more complex' design compared to the predecessor. Usually, mass hires begin later, but looks like the complexity and design peculiarities of the upcoming model will require additional knowledge and skills from workers. This can result in longer learning and training period.
An image showing the iPhone 7 dummy unit has been recently posted on the Internet. As you can see below, the device is similar to the iPhone 6s, however, one can notice several differences that make the handset different from the 2015 model. It should be noted that the image has nothing to deal with leaks from component manufacturers or reliable insiders, so I recommend to take it with a few pinches of salt.
