As you probably know, Apple's iPhone 6 is currently one of the thinnest smartphones on market. It features a sleek design and a display with incredibly thin bezels. The next-generation iPhone, which is expected to be released in the second half of this year is expected to become even thinner.

According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, Apple’s next-gen iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus may both get Apple SIM and 2GB of RAM. Both features come from the iPad Air 2, which was released last year. Apple SIM will allow users to select, which carrier they want to use on their own and 2GB of RAM will surely make the device more efficient. However, these changes may influence the battery life of the smartphone, which means Apple has either to improve the battery capacity, or make other components and the operating system consume less energy.

About a month ago, a rumor appeared on the Internet, which suggested that Samsung will become Apple's primary A9 chip supplier. Although this rumor contradicted with previous reports from reliable insiders, who believed both Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) would supply the company from Cupertino with chips for next-generation iPhones and iPads, it looked quite plausible.
Yesterday, a new report from a South Korean newspaper called Maeil Business was spotted on the Net. According to this report, Samsung will get 75% of orders for the production of the A9 chip. The same report also notes that the processor for the new iPhone and probably iPad Air and iPad mini may be manufactured at the factory in Austin, Texas.
Yesterday, I told you about the leaked images showing something similar to the display assembly for the 12-inch MacBook Air. As it turns out, I didn't mention one conspicuous detail about the next-generation laptop.

Earlier today, a couple of interesting images appeared on the Internet. These images show something very similar to the display assembly for the upcoming 12-inch MacBook Air, which is expected to be officially released later this year. On the photos that are available below one can see the leaked part compared to Apple’s 9.7-inch iPad Air 2 and the 13-inch MacBook Air. We can easily notice that the display assembly is a bit thicker than the body of the newest iPad, however, that is still thinner than a body of the existing MacBook.
A new photo showing something very similar to the mold for the production of the long-anticipated larger iPad Pro back panel appeared on a Chinese microblogging website Weibo.

Still, it can be an unofficial mold used to create iPad Pro dummies and physical mockups of the device.
