New photos from Dianxinshouji suggest that Apple may ship its next-generation 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones with brand new Lightning cables that feature reversible USB connectors. Looks like the guys from Cupertino managed to solve the problem with a cable, which never fits the USB slot from the first time. And that’s another reason to buy an iPhone 6 this fall.
Not only the embedded Apple logo and camera ring for the next-gen iPhone appeared today on the Internet. Apart from these two leaked parts, another one surfaced on a website called Apple.Club.tw. This is a leaked front panel for the upcoming 4.7-inch iPhone 6. You know what?

According to the latest reports from Asian experts, Apple's next-generation 4.7-inch iPhone will boast of better 2100mAh battery. The ESM-China analyst Sung Chang Xu says that he got the information from reliable supply chain sources, however, I don't think we can believe it.
As you probably know, Apple’s iPhone 6 will feature a new A8 processor manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company.

As it was expected, President Obama has signed the Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act. The legislation, which successfully passed the US House of Representatives and the US Senate earlier this year, makes it legal for any user to unlock any smartphone purchased on the territory of the USA.
Apple’s smartphone market share in the world continues to decrease. The reason for the iPhone to lose ground is a great number of small Chinese manufacturers that produce cheap, but at the same time, efficient handsets. As we know, price is the key factor, which influences customers in the developing countries.
The week has come to an end, that is why I have come up with a list of the most popular posts of the past seven days. Let's take a look at these posts right now.
Looks like soon the smartphone unlocking will be made legal again and that's a piece of good news for the customers in the USA and worldwide. It seems as if soon it will be absolutely legal to unlock iPhones and other smartphones purchased in the United States.

As noted by Asian insiders, the mass-production of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will start next week. Moreover, the same sources claim that Foxconn will start assembling the 5.5-inch handset as soon as August, which indicates that there are still some chances that the smartphone will hit the store shelves this fall and not in the first quarter of 2015, as it was reported earlier.
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.
A couple of images showing something very similar to the Touch ID fingerprint sensor for Apple’s iPhone 6 surfaced on the French website Nowwhereelse.fr. As we may see on the photos, the leaked part looks similar to the sensor found inside of the iPhone 5s. Apart from the sensor, there’s also a flex cable.
