iOS 6 will have Maps app with 3D mapping [Photos]





ios6-3dmap-1

BGR just posted images of Apple’s iOS 6 Maps app with 3D mapping. This is just a mockup, because most of the real photos their source was able to capture were blurry.

Apple is reportedly testing its 3D technology in build 10A314 of iOS 6. The renderings are quite accurate, from what the sources say. From what we've heard the 3D icon only exists on the iPad version.

When is the iPhone 5 coming out?



iphone-4-inch

iPhone 5, when we will see it? This is one of the most frequent questions we're being asked these days.

Many useres want a new phone and don't want to get the current iPhone 4S if the next generation iPhone 5 (or whatever Apple decides to call it) is right around the corner.

In the past for the first four years of the iPhone's existence, Apple announced the release dates at their annual World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) and shipped shortly thereafter. The original iPhone shipped on June 29, 2007. The iPhone 3G on July 11, 2008. The iPhone 3GS shipped on June 8, 2009. The iPhone 4 shipped on June 24, 2010.

Analyst Expects iPhone 5 to Launch at WWDC 2012 in June



wwdc

Last week we reported that Foxconn was gearing up for production of the rumoured iPhone 5 with the likely launch set for summer. Today, the Commercial Times citing the report from Daiwa Securities analysts has reported that the iPhone 5 is expected to launch at Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference (WWDC) to be held in June 2012. The official dates for the 2012 conference have not yet been announced, but a previously leaked guide suggested June 10th-15th as the likely dates. Now they are blocked off for a "Corporate Meeting" which typically acts as a placeholder for WWDC.

Daiwa Securities also claims that the next-generation smartphone will continue utilizing "glass to glass" touch panel technology.

The iPhone 5 will continue to utilize glass to glass (G/G) touch panel technology, which will benefit current touch panel suppliers TPK Holding and Wintek, the paper quoted the securities house as saying.

The summer launch claim is not new and has been echoed in previous reports. So this may be just another one rumor. Apple broke from tradition with the iPhone 4S by launching it in October of 2011. A significant change from the previous four generations of iPhone, which were released at or around WWDC in June.

iTunes costs $1.3 billon per year to run



iTunes

An interesting report from Asymco estimates that it costs Apple $1.3 billion per year to run the iTunes store.

Asymco analyzed recently announced numbers like the total number of songs, movies, TV shows, apps, download rate, iTunes accounts and how much Apple has paid out to developers. They put these numbers in a complex formula and estimated that Apple's monthly content margin cost for iTunes at $113 million, which is more than $1.3 billion per year.

That's a lot. It looks like all the iTunes profits go right back into its maintenance and expansion.
