Apple has just seeded new betas of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra to developers for testing. Both pre-release software versions contain a number of minor enhancements including bug fixes and performance tweaks. Looks like there are no new features apart from those that have been announced during the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote in June, but in case we find something worth your attention, we will let you know.
During the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote last month, Apple teased new animated emojis for the Messages app in iOS 10. A couple of days ago, the company has finally released four stickers packs to be used on the first beta of the new mobile operating system.
A well-known designer Martin Hajek has recently created a new iPhone 7 concept that is based on the latest rumors about the upcoming device. In particular, the concept shows a new ‘Space Black’ color option, the rumored Force Touch Home button integrated in the front panel and new EarPods with a Lightning connector instead of the outdated headphone jack. You can take a look at the images below.
Two new images have recently appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo that once again prove Apple may be planning to ditch the headphone jack from the next-generation iPhone. The photos show something similar to the EarPods, but with the Lightning connector instead of the standard headphone jack. You can take a look at the leaked images below.
According to the latest report from usually-reliable DigiTimes reporters, Samsung will supply Apple with 40 million AMOLED panels for the rumored all-new iPhone that is expected to be released in 2017. In 2018, the figure may rise to 80 million units and in 2019 to 120 million units. Currently, Samsung Display is the main supplier of AMOLED displays for the Galaxy lineup. The orders from Apple and other vendors worldwide will allow the company to remain the main AMOLED display manufacturer in the world.
The widely-rumored iPhone 7 may get a brand new Home button, reliable insiders believe. According to the latest report from 9to5Mac reporters, Apple may replace the standard button with the one supporting Force Touch and providing haptic feedback. In addition to this, there will be no deep blue iPhone finish. It appears that this color was confused with a much darker gray option called presumably ‘Space Black’ that will debut this fall to match a similar Apple Watch colorway.
Two new spy photos shared by a reliable French website Nowhereelse prove that the iPhone 7 may get a larger camera module and its larger sibling called the iPhone 7 Plus or Pro may be equipped with a dual camera. Today’s photos go in line with recent reports from supply chain sources and analysts who claim Apple is considering a switch to more advanced photo sensors for its 2016 iPhone lineup.
According to the latest report from the WSJ, Apple won’t completely change the design of the iPhone in 2016. The reporters believe that the company will improve water resistance and make the handset thinner and lighter. Moreover, it is very unlikely that the next-generation iPhone will get a headphone jack. As to the size, both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will resemble the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s and 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus. The report cites KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who earlier this year said that the new iPhone may become 1mm thinner and made other predictions concerning the device.
Apple has begun pulling the 2012 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro models from the shelves of Apple Stores in the United States. While the laptops are still available for purchase, they are no longer showcased to customers. They can’t take a closer look at the older devices and test them with their own hands. This may mean that Apple is preparing the ground for the rumored 13-inch MacBook Pro model with an OLED touch panel instead of function keys.
If you like rumors like I do, you might have heard that Apple is reportedly planning to add a new touch-sensitive OLED panel instead of functions key on the new MacBook Pro. Many things point to this, for example, leaked photos of the alleged casing for the laptop or references found in the latest version of Apple’s desktop operating system called macOS Sierra. But what if Apple decides to integrate similar OLED panels into its wireless keyboards? Below you can take a look at the concept showing how everything may look like.
Earlier this week, Apple unveiled iOS 10, the next version of the mobile operating system that is compatible with the iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPad mini 2 or newer as well as with the 6th generation iPod touch. Even though the update is currently available only as a beta,
Several new hints that prove Apple is planning to add a new OLED touch panel instead of the function keys as well as the Touch ID fingerprint sensor to the next-generation MacBook Pro have been found in the first developer beta of macOS Sierra announced earlier this week.
The reference to new functionality is available in macOS Sierra beta for developers. There are resources that describe new LED “Do Not Disturb” and “Night Shift’ buttons on the keyboard. Other resources and references to new features are available on a dedicated
Just as we expected, Apple has added the ability to delete stock apps you don’t need from the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 10. Users across the globe have been waiting for this feature for years and looks like now it has been successfully implemented. Alongside the announcement of iOS 10 and release of the first beta for developers, Apple has also made the default apps available on the App Store in case someone needs them after deletion.
The stock applications that are now available for download include Mail, Maps, Notes, Podcasts, Calculator, Watch, calendar, Music and a number of others.
The ability to delete defaults apps will let users of devices with 16GB of storage on board free up precious space on their phones and tablets. Furthermore, Apple will hopefully update the aforementioned applications more frequently.
Apart from announcing iOS 10 and new versions of watchOS and tvOS, Apple has just announced the next generation of its desktop operating system, macOS Sierra. The big update features Siri, Universal Clipboard that allows to copy something on one device and paste it seamlessly on another one, Auto Unlock feature that makes it possible to unlock your laptop from an iPhone or Apple Watch and other features.
Apple has just announced iOS 10 with a number of new advanced features and improvements to notification center, lock screen, QuickType keyboard, Photos app, Maps and other sections of the operating system.
