It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last seven days. Let’s not waste our time and take a look at the articles worth your attention right now.
Nine years ago, Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced a thing that changed the entire world. This thing was the iPhone. The big event took place on January 9th, 2007 at Macworld.
The original iPhone could feature a 3.5-inch touchscreen, 4GB, 8GB or 16GB of storage on board and a 2-megapixel camera and was a revolutionary device. Over 6 million iPhones of this generation were sold during the years of manufacture.
Since that time, many things have changed, but Apple’s iPhone still remains one of the most popular smartphones ever manufactured. Its design and functionality make this device the choice of millions of customers from all over the world.
Below you can take a look at the media event dedicated to the first-generation iPhone. Hope you’ll have a good time watching it!
One of Apple main suppliers, Hon Hai Precision Industry, which is also known as Foxconn, has reported a 20% drop in revenue in December. The revenue of the company in the last month of 2015 accounted for $12.3 billion.
It’s been a long time since we heard anything about the jailbreak of iOS 9. This week, however, a developer named Luca Todesco has successfully jailbroken iOS 9.2.1 on his iPhone 6. As a proof, the hacker posted a screenshot showing Cydia running on his phone to Twitter.
It is Sunday today, which means it’s time to take a look at the most interesting posts of the week. Most of the articles deal either with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus and their sales during the holiday quarter, or with rumors about the upcoming devices such as the 4-inch iPhone 6c, 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus.
Apple shares closed 2015 at $105.26, which is more than 4% down in comparison with the start of the year. This is the first negative year for Apple since 2008, Reuters reporters write. They add that In 2008, Apple shares finished down enormous 52%.
It's already 2016, so I guess it's high time we talked about the products Apple may launch this year.
For me personally, two main devices are the Apple Watch 2 and the 4-inch iPhone 6c. The specs for the smartwatch remain unknown, but there’re some rumors about the specs for the smaller iPhone. The device may get Apple’s A9 processor, 2GB or RAM, better battery and a number of other minor enhancements.
Apple has been recently accused of “deceptive trade practices and false advertising’ for not warning people that iOS 9 may noticeably slow down their iPhone 4s units. Plaintiff Chaim Lerman believes that since the update, the phone has become much slower and prevented him and other users from normal everyday usage.
According to the latest report from Reuters, Samsung and LG Display are close to signing a deal with Apple to produce OLED displays for the iPhone. The reporters cite reliable insiders from Electronic Times familiar with the plans of the Cupertino-based tech giant.
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus shipments in the fourth quarter of 2015 are lower that it was originally expected. As noted by DigiTimes reporters, the shipments are 5-10% lower, which indicates that despite strong demand for both handsets during the holiday season, the number of people buying iPhones has decreased this year.
A report from DigiTimes citing reliable Asian sources indicates that the iPhone 7 may become the first waterproof iPhone since the launch of the original iPhone in 2007. The device may also be manufactured out of “new compound materials” to hide the antenna cutouts on the back panel. A Taiwanese firm called Catcher Technology will likely remain the main chassis supplier for the upcoming handset, the sources add. The company will produce about 30-35% of iPhone 7 chassis.
According to a number of reports from reliable insiders, Apple is expected to release a new iPhone 7 with a thinner body and a number of other improvements sometime next year. The design of the handset as well as its specs remain unknown.
Below you can take a look at the iPhone 7 concept called the iPhone 7 Edge featuring a massive 5.5-inch 2K display, the updated A10 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 3500 mAh battery and a number of other features.
According to the latest report from Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty, the iPhone sales may drop next year for the first time ever. The number of iPhones sold in fiscal 2016 may fall by about 6% and make only 218 million units. The calendar 2016 may demonstrate the 2.9% fall and 247 million iPhone units sold to customers.
According to the latest report from The Wall Street Journal, both Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will feature a pressure-sensitive display similar to the one iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have. Moreover, new flagship devices may be equipped with new USB-C posts supporting fast charging as well as better cameras optimized for low-light photography. On top of that, the South Korean tech giant is reportedly planning to add a retina scanner to the next generation of its premium smartphones. In terms of design, both handsets are expected to resemble the Galaxy S6.
According to the latest report from several more or less reliable insiders, despite popular beliefs, former Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs might have been aware of the Apple Watch. The information comes from the Creative Strategies analyst Tim Bajarin, who has been an acquaintance of Steve Jobs and thus talked with him a number of times.
