Just like we expected, Apple has just unveiled its long-anticipated 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6. The larger handset, by the way, got the name iPhone 6 Plus. In this short post I will try to describe new handsets and their main features. The full description of each device will come a bit later, so stay tuned.
As you probably know, the guys from Cupertino will officially unveil their next-generation iPhone 6 on Tuesday, September 9th. Moreover, several sources claim that tomorrow Apple will announce the long-anticipated iWatch. I honestly don't know if we can believe these rumors or not, but anyway, it would be interesting to take a look at such a device.
The week has nearly come to an end, which means it is time to talk about the most popular posts of the past seven days.
According to he latest report from The Information, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch may get a pretty weak battery. As noted by the author of the report, who is Jessica Lessin, even Apple employees close to the development of a wearable device "set low expectations" for its battery life.
As noted in the latest report from The New York Times, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch will boast of flexible screen and wireless charging. The display of the wearable device will get a sapphire cover. Moreover, the same report suggests that the upcoming iPhone 6 will offer its users a one-hand mode. The reporters cite supply chain insiders, or, how they call them, "people knowledgeable about the product".
Apple on Thursday was granted a patent for a technology of hardening the sapphire structure. The patent application was published on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office official website. The patent is entitled "Sapphire property modification through ion implantation" and it describes a method of adding ions in a sapphire structure so that it becomes stronger and prevents this material from cracking. The advantage of the new technology is that it allows to make the sapphire stronger without using the chemicals.
According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple's suppliers are currently ramping up the production of components for the next-generation 9.7-inch iPad Air that is expected to be officially unveiled this fall alongside the Retina iPad mini. The new tablet will boast of faster A8 processor, improved Touch ID fingerprint sensor and some other hardware and software enhancements. Reliable insiders also believe that the tablet will become thinner. At the same time, the size and the display resolution of the device will reportedly remain unchanged.
Several new images have been recently shared by Nowhereelse.fr, which show something what appears to be a battery for the upcoming 5.5-inch iPhone 6. What is interesting about the leaked part is that it can boast of the capacity nearly two times larger than that of the battery of the iPhone 5s. For those, who don't know: the battery capacity of the iPhone 5s is 1.560 mAh, while the same specification of the next-gen iPhone 6 with 5.5-inch screen is 2.915 mAh.
A new video that shows us a device very similar to the fully assembled iPhone 6 has recently surfaced on the Internet. This is not the first video depicting the upcoming 4.7-inch handset, however, it allows us to take a closer look at the smartphone that is expected to be officially unveiled on September 9th.
According to the latest report from Re/code, the guys from Cupertino are currently planning to set a price tag for the upcoming iWatch at about $400. It should be noted, however, that there will be iWatch models with lower and higher prices. The cost of the long-anticipated wearable device will reportedly depend on the size of its display and hardware differences.
A couple of new high-resolution images have recently appeared on the Internet. These leaked photos show us something very similar to the iPhone 6 back panel with rear bands colored in a different way to fit the rest of the handset. This indicates that Apple's next-generation iPhone may indeed come in several colors, just like its predecessor. The images showing a leaked part for Apple's new handset have been first spotted on Nowhereelse.fr.
Several new rumors have recently appeared online, which deal with the new A8 chip that is expected to be added to the iPhone 6. According to these rumors, the processor will remain dual-core, however, it will feature a speed of 2.0 GHz or even more. Making a processor for the new flagship dual-core and not quad-core is rather a strange step. Nevertheless, we all know that even such a weak at the first glance SoC copes with the required tasks better than the chips with multiple cores found inside of the rivals' smartphones.
According to the latest report from Bloomberg, the guys from Cupertino will release their long-anticipated iPad Pro with a massive 12.9-inch display as soon as in early 2015. The reporters claim that they got the news about the release of the new tablet from reliable supply chain sources, so I guess we can believe them.
As you probably know, iPad sales have dropped in the past several months. This information was shared by the guys from Cupertino in July, as they announced their financial results in the third quarter of 2014. Despite noticeable decrease in sales, Apple CEO Tim Cook still believes that iPad is a successful project.
A couple of new images have recently appeared on the Internet that show us something what appears to be LED Flash components for the long-anticipated 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6. The leaked photos prove the rumor, which suggests that the guys from Cupertino are planning to unveil both handsets at the same time. The release of the smaller handset will take place on September 9th, however, I don't know whether the larger device will be unveiled at the same media event.
