An iPhone 6 Plus unit suddenly exploded while being charged, Apple Daily reporters claim. The incident took place in Tai Wai, Hong Kong. Fortunately, the victim, who is a woman surnamed Tsang wasn’t injured.
According to what the reporters write, the iPhone 6 Plus with 128Gb of storage was connected to an electric outlet and placed near victim’s bed at about 1 a.m. Next morning, at 8 a.m., the woman was awakened by a loud bang and smoke coming out of her handset. As can be seen on the image below, the protective case of the iPhone is molten and the front panel is badly damaged by the heat.
According to what former Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside told in the recent interview, Apple's acquisition of the firm called AuthenTec, which took place in 2012, prevented Google from adding a fingerprint sensor to its Nexus 6. This handset was initially intended to feature an advanced fingerprint sensor on a back panel, right in the place where the Motorola logo now sits. Moreover, first prototypes of the device featured a sensor capable of recognizing owner's fingerprints. However, since Apple purchased AuthenTec and the rights for all its technologies, Google decided to opt out from the sensor.
This may sound strange, but according to the latest report from usually reliable market research firm DisplaySearch, Samsung managed to become Apple's main iPad display panel supplier in the first quarter of 2014. The South Korean company produced as many as 5.2 million 9.7-inch Retina displays, which were used in the iPad Air and the fourth generation iPad.
In a new interview Microsoft founder Bill Gates told that he wrote a letter to Steve Jobs before his death and the letter was so important for Steve that he even kept it at his bedside. Gates spoke this week with students at a school in South London, where he acknowledged that Jobs had said critical things about him in the past, but before Jobs passed away they had settled all difficulties.
"There was no peace to make. We were not at war," Gates said. "We made great products, and competition was always a positive thing."
In fact, Gates said he received a phone call from Jobs's wife, Laurene Powell Jobs, about negative comments her husband had made to biographer Walter Isaacson, in which he called Gates a "basically unimaginative person who "has never invented anything." Gates said Jobs's wife told him that Isaacson's book didn't "paint a picture of the mutual respect" the two had for one another.
The Japanese newspaper Nikkei reports that Apple and Sharp are partnering to build a 100 billion yen ($1.2 billion) plant in China to produce LCD displays for the iPhone. “Sharp Corp will spend about 100 billion yen to build production lines for small and midsize LCDs, with Apple Inc slated to purchase bulk of the output for its iPhone”, - the newspaper said. Mass production is expected to begin in the second half of 2012.
As we know, Australian state Victoria Premier John Brumby always shows enthusiasm for the Apple’s iPad. He ordered 500 devices for Victorian hospitals and bought over 500 for Victorian schools. Now Australian state Victoria plans to provide iPads to all the doctors working in Australia’s public health system.
Recently iStorytime has announced a new application for reading texts with children called Danny the Dragon. It's not the content of the selected stories, which we admire. This application for the iPhone and iPad devices is one of the first that includes video stories being read in a beautiful and understandable language.
Well, if you are waiting for something extraordinary or high tech, you have come to the wrong place. This application includes simple video narrations being read by the woman. Nevertheless, it is quite useful and necessary application for each family that has a child and has no time to go shopping in search of paper books.
If you remember, few weeks ago we posted a video describing how you can attach an iPad to the wall with a Velcro. Well, for those, who didn't like the design side of the idea here is a new accessory created by Arodsin Redningar, a Swedish designer. It's called iPad Capsule and it's a wooden frame that coated in a protective white paint.
It is specially angled and you can’t turn it 360 degrees, but it's surely looks good.
At the moment there is no information about the price or availability.
The Unreal Engine 3 is a modern 3D gaming engine which powers games such as Bioshock, Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3.
Anandtech spent some time with Mark Rein (Epic Games) last week and was shown a demo of the Unreal Engine 3 running on a 3rd Generation iPod Touch. The demo included a flythrough as well as a playable level from Unreal Tournament.
The game engine requires OpenGL 2.0 so this will restrict the game to 3rd generation iPod Touches and iPhone 3GSs only. Epic is planning on making the engine available to licensees at some point, opening the door eventually to Unreal-powered iPhone games. Epic tells Anand we're going to see Unreal running on another mobile platform at CES.
We published several news about new firmware 4.0 and even new iPhone 4 hardware. Recently one more iPhone developer has noted a single instance of iPhone OS 4.0 being used in their Pinch Media analytics. While such data can still be faked, it seems less likely to be. Testing of iPhone OS 4.0 may correspond with reports of new iPhone hardware also being tested. Any new iPhone would require a new version of the iPhone operating system to support the new hardware.
We can not yet imagine the features of this new OS or the new device. Apple is widely expected to release a new iPhone in the summer around WWDC 2010.
