It is Sunday today, which means it is high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Let’s not waste our time and take a look at the articles I have selected for you right now.
As you probably know, the pre-orders for the Apple Watch have recently gone live. Within just several hours, the guys from Cupertino have sold out the initial stock of the wearable device.
Simultaneously with the pre-orders, Apple launched the in-store try-on appointments aimed at making it easier for the customers to choose a particular model of the smartwatch. If you want to know how these appointments look like, you can take a look at the short video below. It was published to YouTube by a user from Hong Kong nicknamed Xin Chan.
A new video showing something very similar to the rear shell for the fourth-generation iPad mini has recently appeared on the Internet. While there’s no way to check the legitimacy of this short clip, it has been shared by the French reporters from Nowhereelse.fr. This site has a good track record when it comes to the releases of Apple products, moreover, it often gives a closer look at the leaked parts, so I guess we can believe it.
According to the latest report from John Paczkowski, the next-generation Apple TV, which is expected to be unveiled at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, won’t boast of the support of 4K video. As to the possible reason for Apple’s decision not to include 4K video support to the updated device, it may be connected with the lack of high-quality 4K content. Moreover, such content requires fast Internet connection to be delivered to users and currently only about 15% of customers in the USA have access to the connection fast enough to work with 4K videos.
It is Sunday today, which means the time has come for our traditional Sunday post about the most interesting Apple-related news of the week. Let’s take a look at the articles worth your attention right now.
Even though Samsung officials say the Galaxy S6 Edge features a metal casing, which is 50% stronger than the casing used in other high-end smartphones and that the device is not as bendable as the iPhone 6 Plus, it looks like it is actually a bit more bendable than the 5.5-inch iPhone. According to the results of the latest durability test conducted by a firm called SquareTrade, the smartphone from South Korea bends at 110 lbs of pressure, just like the iPhone 6 Plus. The breaking point of the handset is 149 lbs, while the one of the larger-screened iPhone is 179 lbs. Looks like the 50% stronger casing doesn’t work as it should.
According to what people familiar with the matter write, at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference scheduled for June, the guys from Cupertino plan to announce a new Apple TV set-top box. The new media device will reportedly boast of Apple’s A8 processor and a big amount of internal storage. Apart from that, the sources claim Apple will add Siri to its next-generation set-top box and create a special App Store version with applications for Apple TV. SDK for developers to create apps will become available this summer as well.
According to the latest video showing progress on the construction site of Apple’s new “Spaceship” campus, the steel structure at the gates of the would-be headquarters has reached the fifth floor. This indicates that the construction workers do their job extremely quickly. If to compare the most-recent clip with the previous one, which was released earlier this month, we may see that the workers now focus their attention on the main part of the round building.
It is Sunday today, which means it is time for me to tell you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Let’s not waste time and take a look at them right now.
Immediately after the official announcement of the long-anticipated 12-inch Retina MacBook at the “Spring Forward” media event on Monday, first hands-on videos began to appear on the Internet showing how the new laptop looks and feels. Among all the clips I would like to point out the one published by TechnoBuffalo reporters as the one, which is the best in terms of length and the amount of information about the device it offers. You may take a look at this video below.
As you know, a couple of hours ago, at the “Spring Forward” media event, Apple announced its Apple Watch. Although the wearable device is not available for purchase yet, after the presentation, the reporters had an exclusive possibility to take a close look at the smartwatch and test its performance. Below you may take a look at the short hands on video showing the 42mm Apple Watch Sport tested by Jon Rettinger of TechnoBuffalo.
Apart from the Apple Watch, Apple has just announced another interesting device. As you might have guessed, this is the widely-rumored 12-inch Retina MacBook. Surprisingly, this laptop stays separately from the existing MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lineups: it’s just a MacBook.
A new Campus 2 flyover video has recently appeared on the Internet. The 4K clip has been shot by a user nicknamed MyithZ, who is quite famous for his flyover videos showing progress at Apple’s largest construction site. As usual, the short clip is available either below, or on YouTube. You may take a look right now.
Following the video showing the iPhone 6 compared to the recently-released Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge in terms of speed and responsiveness, a new clip appeared on the Internet earlier today showing the work of fingerprint scanners on both handsets. Just like the previous video, this one was shot by PhoneArena reporters at Mobile World Congress. You may take a look at it below.
As you probably know, last week, Apple’s main rival announced two new smartphones, namely, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Below you may take a look at one of the first videos showing the S6 Edge compared to Apple’s iPhone 6, which was released last year.
