According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, the next-generation iPhone will feature a 12-megapixel camera with five-element lens and a larger sensor.

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 take a look at these posts right now.
Most of the articles this week deal with Apple’s next-gen iPhone and rumors about its hardware components and the release date. There’re also some posts that tell us about the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and about a new security vulnerability found in OS X Yosemite 10.10.5.
According to the latest report shared by people familiar with the matter, Samsung is currently working on a massive 18.4-inch tablet. This device is expected to become the main and probably the only rival of the iPad Pro, which is expected to be released later this year. The South Korean tech giant is also working on a 12-inch tablet with an Intel Core M processor inside, 4GB of RAM and a stylus. The device will be running Windows 10.
Apple on Wednesday seeded the seventh beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan Beta to developers for testing. The release of this version came two weeks after the release of the previous OS X 10.11 beta and about two months after the official announcement of El Capitan at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference. Apart from the version for developers, the guys from Cupertino have also seeded the fifth OS X El Capitan beta to the members of the public beta testing program.
According to the latest report from Macerkopf, Apple will launch the long-anticipated iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on September 18th. The start of sales will take place a little bit more than a week after the debut of new devices at a special media event scheduled for September 9th. As noted by the same insiders, German carriers are currently gearing up for the start of the next-gen iPhone sales.
A developer from Italy named Luca Todesco has recently discovered a new zero-day vulnerability, which lets hackers gain root access in OS X Yosemite without using a password. This vulnerability is similar to the DYLD_PRINT_TO_FILE exploit that has been patched in OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. The developer has reported the vulnerability to Apple, however, it hasn’t been fixed by the guys from Cupertino in the latest update. I honestly hope that Apple developers will react somehow and close a hole in OS X security as soon as possible.
As you already know, the guys from Cupertino have recently released iOS 8.4.1 with fixes for Apple Music and patches for vulnerabilities used for untethered jailbreak. Apart from that, Apple has released OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 with a fix for DYLD_PRINT_TO_FILE vulnerability and a number of other enhancements. The release comes two weeks after the release of the last beta for developers and about a month after the official launch of OS X 10.10.5.
According to the latest rumors shared by people familiar with the matter, even though the next-generation iPhone will boast of a more efficient processor, 12-megapixel camera, updated NFC and LTE chips, 2GB or RAM, and a number of other noticeable improvements, its market share may see zero or negative growth in the fourth quarter of this year. Latest estimates from KGI prove that Apple may sell between 65 million and 75 million iPhone units in Q4 2015. As to the reason for such relatively weak sales, it may be connected with problems in the Chinese economy as well as with the limited usage of the widely-rumored Force Touch display.

According to the latest report from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, in the second quarter of 2015, iPhone’s market share grew noticeably in such countries as Britain, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. The share on Apple’s native U.S. market saw a decrease. It should be noted, however, that this happens every year before the release of the new iPhone model.
As you already know, Chinese hackers have recently released the long-anticipated Mac version of their Taig tool for untethered jailbreak. Although the version 1.0.0 is quite stable, some OS X Mavericks 10.9 users report that during the process of jailbreak, the utility freezes and they see a blank screen. That is why Taig team has recently released an update that fixes this problem. The update is available at
Following the release of OS X El Capitan Beta 6 to developers for testing, the guys from Cupertino have recently seeded the fourth beta of OS X 10.11 to public beta testers.
