According to what usually-reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo writes, Apple's long-anticipated 12.9-inch or 12.2-inch iPad Pro won't enter mass production until the second quarter of the next year. Kuo believes that the thing that will push the production of the large tablet back is a brand new display, which is currently at the development stage.
According to the latest survey results published by a research firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are not as popular among Android switchers as they were expected to be. In fact, the amount of former Android users who decided to purchase Apple's handset this year is nearly two times smaller if to compare with 2013. Just look: 12% and 23%. I must admit, the difference is immense. What is even more interesting is that the number of Windows Phone or Blackberry switchers turned out to be smaller in 2014 as well; more people decided to upgrade to the iPhone 5s last year and not to the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus this year. This means that about 80% of the new iPhone buyers are former iPhone owners.
A new high-resolution video showing the construction site of Apple's Campus 2 has been recently uploaded to YouTube. The short clip shot with the help of a drone equipped with a camera gives us a closer look at the structure that has been built on the foundation of the would-be headquarters over the past few weeks. Well, I must admit the construction workers do their job very and very quickly.
With growing popularity of smart devices, like smartphones and tablets, most users demand wireless and mobile features from audio systems.

The PanguTeam has released Pangu8 1.2.1, an updated version of their utility to jailbreak iOS 8.0 - 8.1.

Security researchers from Palo Alto Networks have recently discovered a new type of malware. This malware is called WireLurker and it infects both iOS devices and Mac OS X computers. Over the past six months, a wide number of users mainly from China have encountered with this piece of malware. The researchers claim that WireLurker is a complete new threat and it can possibly open the new era in the creation of malware attacking both Apple's desktop and mobile platforms.
Good news for all those OS X users who want to jailbreak their iPhones with iOS 8 - 8.1 on board. PanguTeam on Wednesday announced that the version of their utility for untethered jailbreak will be released in a couple of days. The pleasant piece of news was yesterday spotted on developers' official Twitter page, where they acknowledged the release of Cydia 1.1.16 and posted some words that deal with jailbreak for Mac users.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, a relatively wide number of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners have encountered an issue that causes constant crashes and restarts of their devices. After such crashes, the smartphones get stuck in a boot loop and it takes much time to bring them back to normal functioning. What is interesting about this particular glich is that it affects primarily the iPhones with 128GB of storage on board and those that have their storage full or nearly full.
According to the latest report from Digitimes, both Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) are currently struggling to get the rights to manufacture the next-generation Apple A9 chip, which will reportedly be used to power company's iPhones and iPads next year. The guys from Cupertino will choose the primary supplier by the end of 2014, the reporters claim.
According to the latest report from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, Apple is currently planning to stop the development of the iPad mini to focus on the new project, which deals with the larger-screened iPad Pro. This year's iPad mini 3, the reporters claim, became the last Apple's product of its kind. While the guys from Cupertino haven't yet commented in the issue, such a step looks quite possible and logical. You see, the smaller tablet can be now substituted by the 5.5-inch iPhone, which is a bit smaller, but large enough for comfortable web-browsing, reading or playing games. For all the other things there's a normal full-size iPad.
Microsoft earlier today released a new ad, where it compared the Lenovo Yoga 3 convertible laptop with Apple's MacBook Air. The commercial is entitled "Let's Dance" and it offers us a closer side-by-side look at both devices. If you have time and mood, you may watch the short video below.
It is Sunday today and that means that it is high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. So, let’s start.
As you probably know, next year the guys from Cupertino are expected to release a new tablet called probably iPad Pro. According to the latest report found on the Japanese website called Mac Otakara, the new device will boast of massive 12.2-inch display, stereo speakers on top and bottom sides and the thickness of about 7mm. As to the other features of the iPad Pro, they remain unknown.

According to a number of complaints that can be found on Apple's Support Communities forum, a number of OS X Yosemite users have encountered some issues with Wi-Fi connectivity. The Wi-Fi connections are extremely slow or, in some cases, they disconnect within few minutes of work. It should be noted, however, that the number of users that have reported Wi-Fi issues is relatively small. Nevertheless, I believe the guys from Cupertino should pay attention to the complaints and fix the bug inside of the recently-released OS X Yosemite as soon as possible.
