Earlier this year, Apple revealed its plans to build a second solar farm several miles away from its new data center in Maiden, North Carolina. The new 20-megawatt facility would complement another 20-megawatt solar farm that seems to be nearing competion across the street from Apple’s data center.

Lehman notes that even the bosses where screws for other components will attach are machined out of the single rear shell piece, increasing strength while reducing thickness and weight.

This week DigiTimes’s industry sources from the Far East provided more information about the next-generation iPhone’ processor. As reported, the new iPhone would feature a quad-core ARM processor based on Samsung's Exynos 4 architecture. The sources did not presented any further details.
Last year’s iPhone 4S feature a custom dual-core processor clocked at 800 megahertz, dubbed by Apple the “A5”. The chip was first introduced in the iPad 2. This year’s iPad couldn’t boast of the updated processor model, dubbed the "A5X," but it is sooner a slightly revised version of the A5.
