Luxury modified iPhone vendor Feld & Volk has recently shared a video of what appears to be partially working iPhone 6. The firm representatives say that they managed to assemble the device shown below from the leaked parts they got from Apple's suppliers.
Although you may be tired of the posts connected with the upcoming iPhone 6 and its support of the Near Field Communication technology (NFC), I feel that I have to share a new rumor with you. This rumor suggests that the next-generation handset will indeed get a chip that supports the new NFC standard that is yet to be launched. Moreover, people familiar with the matter believe that a Dutch firm called NXP will become the manufacturer of the chip.
As noted by Digitimes reporters, Apple may launch an updated MacBook model at the end of this year or at the beginning of 2015. The reporters cite Chinese supply chain sources and claim that the laptop will become slightly thinner. Moreover, they say that the manufacture of some components for the device has already begun.
As you probably know, because of the new larger MacBook model, the guys from Cupertino are expected to stop the production of the non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Air. Although these are only rumors now, I don't think such a decision of Apple's executives will be a tragedy for Apple fans.
A couple of new images have recently appeared on the Internet that show us something what appears to be LED Flash components for the long-anticipated 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6. The leaked photos prove the rumor, which suggests that the guys from Cupertino are planning to unveil both handsets at the same time. The release of the smaller handset will take place on September 9th, however, I don't know whether the larger device will be unveiled at the same media event.
A new image, which shows us something very similar to the new iPhone 6 speaker assembly has recently appeared on the Internet. The image has been shared by a Far East parts supplier alongside some other images that depict other components for the long-anticipated handset.
Several new images have recently appeared on the Internet that show us something very similar to the partially assembled iPhone 6. The images have been shared by a luxury modified iPhone seller called Feld & Volk. They are available below.
Earlier this year, a rumor appeared online that suggested that the guys from Cupertino were planning to open a retail store in the United Arab Emirates. Looks like Apple hasn’t changed its plans.
According to the latest reports from BGR, the guys from Cupertino have recently released iOS 8 Beta 6 to select partners. It should be noted, however, that this is still not a gold master seed of the mobile operating system. Very soon, Apple is expected to release a final version of iOS 8 to developers for testing and after that, probably on September 9th, the new version of iOS will become available for all users worldwide.
According to the latest report from J.P. Morgan analyst Rod Hall, the guys from Cupertino are very unlikely to equip the iPhone 6 models with the screens made of sapphire. The reason for such a step is the high cost of production of sapphire in large quantities. The analyst notes that using sapphire as the main material for the manufacture of 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone displays is about 10 times more expensive than using Corning's Gorilla Glass.
The week has come to an end, which means it is high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. If you’re ready to read, let’s begin.
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.
According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple's Asian supplier Pegatron has recently won a contract for the production of 25 million 4.7-inch iPhone 6 units of the 50 million that are expected to be shipped this year.
As noted by people familiar with the matter, the guys from Cupertino have recently banned two hazardous chemicals from the final assembly of iPhones, iPads, iPods, Macs, MacBooks and other gadgets. These chemicals include benzene and n-hexane, which can cause leukemia and nerve damage after direct contact with human organism.
According to what Chinese insiders write, Apple’s iPhone 6 has entered a final product testing stage ahead of the start of the mass-production. Today’s report contradicts the report, which appeared on the Internet last month and which suggested that the next-generation handset had already entered mass-production. Looks like the guys from Cupertino encountered some manufacturing issues that prevented them from beginning the assembling process in time.
Microsoft has recently released three new Surface Pro 3 ads. As usual, the ads mock Apple and the gadgets the guys from Cupertino create.
This time Microsoft chose Apple's MacBook Air as a victim. The company from Redmond claims its newest tablet is more efficient and portable than the laptop manufactured by Apple. Of course, Microsoft fails to mention that the sales of the Surface tablets are weak and that the company lost nearly 1.7 billion dollars since the launch of its first-gen version. Anyway, the three ads are available below.
