According to the latest report from Bloomberg, the guys from Cupertino are currently in talks with major U.S. insurance companies, which include UnitedHealth and Humana, over the possibility of using the HealthKit platform.

According to the latest reports from BGR, the guys from Cupertino have recently released iOS 8 Beta 6 to select partners. It should be noted, however, that this is still not a gold master seed of the mobile operating system. Very soon, Apple is expected to release a final version of iOS 8 to developers for testing and after that, probably on September 9th, the new version of iOS will become available for all users worldwide.
According to what has been recently shared by a Weibo user nicknamed GeekBar, Apple’s iPhone 6 will get only 1GB of RAM. This is the same amount of RAM as can be found inside of the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. If the leaked schematics are indeed for the upcoming 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch iPhone 6, we may assume that in terms of the amount of RAM, Apple’s next-generation smartphone will be weaker than the existing flagship devices of the rival vendors, which already have 2GB of RAM on board.
A bunch of images showing something what appears to be a genuine iPhone 6 smuggled out of Foxconn appeared on the Internet earlier today. The device shown below looks pretty much the same as the iPhone 5s, however, it can boast of several noticeable improvements that include a larger screen and a new back panel. The design of the handset goes in line with all the previous rumors and reports. Still, there is no way to check the legitimacy of the photos, so I suggest you to take them with a few pinches of salt.
According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple's Asian supplier Pegatron has recently won a contract for the production of 25 million 4.7-inch iPhone 6 units of the 50 million that are expected to be shipped this year.
Several new images have been recently shared by a well-known analyst Sonny Dickson, who has a good track record of Apple’s product launches. These images show something what appears to be a genuine back panel from the long-anticipated 4.7-inch iPhone 6.

According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, Apple is currently in talks with major U.S. medical professionals concerning the possibility to use company's new HealthKit platform for storing medical data.

According to the latest rumors, both Evasi0n and Pangu jailbreak utilities have been recently nominated for 2014 Pwnie Awards. This award is presented to those developers and security researchers, who find bugs or important exploits in the software.

According to the latest figures from a research firm Net Applications, the global usage of Apple’s iOS as an operating system has fallen behind Android. Well, of course, the market in terms of the so-called install base has been for months or even years led by Google’s mobile operating system, but this is probably the first time when the guys from Cupertino lost the competitive struggle in terms of the actual user base.
