As noted in the latest report from TechCrunch journalists, Apple has recently begun shipping its new iPhones from the manufacturing facilities to the retail and wholesale partners. The amount of handsets is so great that these shipments even cause delays for other manufacturers of smartphones and tablets.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, one of Apple suppliers has been recently accused of violating the rights of its workers. The name of this supplier is Catcher and its factory is situated in Suqian, China. In case you don't know, Catcher is responsible for the production of casings for iPads and MacBooks.
As noted in the latest report from The New York Times, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch will boast of flexible screen and wireless charging.

The reporters cite supply chain insiders, or, how they call them, "people knowledgeable about the product".
According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple's suppliers are currently ramping up the production of components for the next-generation 9.7-inch iPad Air that is expected to be officially unveiled this fall alongside the Retina iPad mini.

Reliable insiders also believe that the tablet will become thinner. At the same time, the size and the display resolution of the device will reportedly remain unchanged.
Several new images have been recently shared by Nowhereelse.fr, which show something what appears to be a battery for the upcoming 5.5-inch iPhone 6. What is interesting about the leaked part is that it can boast of the capacity nearly two times larger than that of the battery of the iPhone 5s. For those, who don't know: the battery capacity of the iPhone 5s is 1.560 mAh, while the same specification of the next-gen iPhone 6 with 5.5-inch screen is 2.915 mAh.
According to what people familiar with the matter write, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch won't be released until 2015 as it is currently in the engineering verification testing (EVT) stage. Before entering the mass-production stage, it has to go through the production verification testing (PVT) and this requires time.
It is Sunday today and that means I have to tell you about the most popular posts of the past seven days. There're many interesting articles, so let's not waste time and take a look at them.
According to the latest report from Re/code, the guys from Cupertino are currently planning to set a price tag for the upcoming iWatch at about $400. It should be noted, however, that there will be iWatch models with lower and higher prices. The cost of the long-anticipated wearable device will reportedly depend on the size of its display and hardware differences.

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 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.
