According to a new report from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, Apple will indeed release 4.7-inch and 5.6-inch handsets this year. However, the 5.6-inch device won’t be branded as ‘iPhone’. And this is a very interesting move from the company from Cupertino.
Have a look at this fantastic demo-video! It shows that the sapphire-coated display cannot be scratched by concrete.

According to Katy Huberty, Morgan Stanley analyst, Apple will reach $17.5 billion iWatch sales over the first year of release, showing a better performance than iPad with $12 billion in the launch year.

Here is one more Jimmy Kimmel's iPhone 5S experiment. He actually gave people on the street an iPad Mini, but told them that it's a brand new iPhone 5S. Let's watch the reaction:
Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle has recently given an interview to CBS's Charlie Rose. It is well known that Larry was a close friend of Steve Jobs, so the main topic of the dialog was what he believes Apple without Steve Jobs will look like.
“Well, we already know,” Ellison told Rose. “We saw we conducted the experiment. I mean, it’s been done. We saw Apple with Steve Jobs. We saw Apple without Steve Jobs. We saw Apple with Steve Jobs. Now, we’re gonna see Apple without Steve Jobs.”
The events Ellison is talking about refer to the year 1985 when Steve Jobs was sacked by the Apple board. The Californian company went through many difficulties and had t struggle for further development. Later, Steve Jobs joined the company again CEO. As a result, such well-known products were launched as the iPod, iPhone and iPad, the ones that gave Apple world-wide recognition and generous revenues.
Nowadays, Apple is lead by Steve Jobs' hand picked successors - Tim Cook and the rest of the executive team (Jony Ive, Eddy Cue, etc). However, Ellison guesses that the sad history of Apple without Steve Jobs may be repeated.

Yesterday we reported that the new iPad is running warmer that its predecessor. Repair Labs has conducted their own analysis and found that the A5X chip in the new device runs as much as 16 degrees Fahrenheit (about 9.5 degrees Celsius) warmer than the A5 chip in the iPad 2.
According to a series of tests conducted by Repair Labs, the A5X chip registered temperatures up to 36 degrees celsius (96.8 degrees Fahrenheit), compared to A5 readings of 27 degrees C (80.6 degrees F). The experiment involved opening up the tablets in order to directly measure the temperatures of the chips.
