Apple Splitting iPod Touch Lineup Between Current and New Designs, Increasing Color Options for iPod Shuffle and New Nano
Apple will reportedly make at least minor changes to their three current iPod lines. 9to5Mac shares some details on Apple's apparent plans for updated iPods reportedly set to be introduced alongside the iPhone 5 at next Wednesday's media event.
- iPod shuffle: The biggest change perhaps being the availability of eight different colors compared to the five color options on the current model. The current $49 pricing is likely to remain in effect, but it is unclear if the current 2 GB capacity will carry over to the new models.
“Here is the part codes matrix for the new iPhone launch from a source at a well-known U.S. retail chain: N42A-USA -$199, N42B-USA-$199, N42A-USA-$299, N42B-USA-$299, N42A-USA-$399, N42B-USA-$399. A + B signify black and white”.
It is expected that Apple will accompany the iPhone launch with a number of accessories, and pre-orders will reportedly begin “soon after” iPhone 5 introduction.
According to a
“The new update will mean that the 8GB version of the iPhone 4 will be the entry-level iPhone, probably given away free on £20 per month contracts, as the 3GS is currently”.
The Telegraph also notes that iPhone 5 will come in three different capacities, probably the same 64 GB/32 GB/16 GB line seen with the iPhone 4S.
Moving the iPhone 4 into the position that is currently occupied by the iPhone 3GS would allow more carriers to offer a free iPhone, because the iPhone 4 is sold in both CDMA and GSM versions while the iPhone 3GS is only offered in GSM version.
The iPhone 3GS would probably be most missed by customers who want to buy contract-free smartphones. Currently Apple sells contract-free, unlocked iPhone 3GS for $375 in the U.S. and at higher prices in other countries such as $455 in China. If the company elected to continue selling the device along with its three other iPhone models, it would have to cut the price even further.
Repair firm iResQ has posted side-by-side comparison shots of the purported next-generation iPhone and the iPhone 4S. The photo shows that the iPhone 5 is indeed substantially thinner than the iPhone 4S. Apple's move toward thinner body components and a thinner distribution of internal components enabled by the larger surface area due to the 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5 have allowed the company to substantially shrink the device's overall thickness.
CiccareseDesign has created a new set of renderings and even a 3D model of the 7.85-inch "iPad mini" setting up for an October debut. The design is based on the numerous rumors, part leaks, and work by case manufacturers who are trying to determine what the device will look like in order to have their products ready for sale as soon as possible. As far as you know, the 7.85-inch iPad offers 66% of the surface area of the current 9.7-inch iPad and almost 40% more surface area than competing 7-inch tablets.
9to5Mac reports that the updated iPod line is also likely to be introduced at the next-week media event Apple holds to unveil the next-generation iPhone. As usual, the details on the updated devices are scarce, but it seems that Apple will release two or even three updated product lines. Two of the lines appear to correspond to the current iPod shuffle and iPod nano. As for the third product, the report speculates that it could arrive as a new line, allowing Apple to continue offering the current iPod nano design that has gained a following for its small size combined with touchscreen capabilities.
After Apple announced its new Passbook functionality for iOS 6, speculation related to the possibility of using NFC (near field communications) technology in the iPhone 5 has ramped up. This technology would allow users to make contactless payments through the Passbook digital wallet. Rumors about NFC technology for the iPhone 5 got another boost after photos of the next iPhone’s front panel surfaced revealing an unknown feature that, according to Japanese blog Macotakara, may be the part of the device’s NFS system.
Citing upstream supply chain sources, NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim claims that a high-resolution display bound for a rumored 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is now in production. The production timeline could point to a fall debut for the rumored 13-inch Retina display-packing MacBook Pro.
“Supply volume of Apple's 7.85-inch iPad is estimated to reach four million units per month starting in September in order to prepare for demand from year-end holidays, according to sources from the upstream supply chain”.
According to a
Nowhereelse.fr obtained and posted a new photo of what it believes may be a flex cable component for the "iPad mini", housing Apple's smaller dock connector, the headphone jack, and the home button connector. But the photo is pretty similar to that one that was posted back in May, revealing a part said to be for the next-generation iPhone.
The San Jose Mercury News reports that the Palo Alto home of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was among the homes which were burglarized last month. Jobs' home on Waverley Street in Palo Alto was burglarized on July 17. Among the items taken were more than $60,000 worth of "computers and personal items." The Jobs home has been undergoing renovation and it is unclear whether the family is currently living in the house while the work is being performed.
