News tagged ‘iPhone 5’
It’s Sunday again, so I’ve decided to take a brief look at the most interesting posts of the last week. Let’s not waste time on senseless introductions and talk about recent Apple news right now.
Although Apple admitted that iPhone 5c sales are lower than expected, this device is still way more popular than any Blackberry, Windows Phone or Android flagship. Yep, this mid-tier smartphone managed to outsell even Galaxy S4 in the winter quarter.
According to some anonymous insiders, Apple won’t equip its next-generation iPhone with a 13-megapixel camera. Instead, the guys from Cupertino will try to improve the existing 8-megapixel sensor in order to make the photos you take look better.
The Fortune published a list of World's 50 Greatest Leaders. Apple CEO Tim Cook occupies the 33rd place.
Following Steve Jobs has arguably been the toughest corporate leadership assignment in decades, yet Cook has carried it off with mostly quiet aplomb. In 2½ years he has kept the parade of winning new products marching (the Retina display, new operating systems, the iPhone 5), and he is bringing in Burberry's savior, Angela Ahrendts, to run Apple's retail stores. That's thinking different.
According to a new, but immensely popular among the users thread on Apple's Support forum, iOS 7.1 contains a bug that causes Personal Hotspot issues. The problem has been reported by iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s owners, that is why you’d better not update to the latest iOS version if you often use this iOS feature.
As you know, Apple on Tuesday released a cheaper 8GB iPhone 5c model. However, it is currently available only in several countries, namely, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia and China. Surprisingly, the company from Cupertino didn’t launch the handset in the United States. And it won’t do that at all, at least now,
Today the iPad 4 with lightning has taken place of the iPad 2. It is the second replacement after the introduction of the iPhone 5c 8GB.
A well-known Apple supplier, Pegatron, has reportedly started hiring new workers in China. These people, as well as new production capacities, are required to assemble Apple’s next-generation handset that is expected to be released in the second half of 2014.
As was reported earlier, Pegatron may become responsible for manufacture of about half of the iPhone 6’s supplies.
Apple on Tuesday released a cheaper iPhone 5c model with 8GB of memory on board. The UK carrier O2 was the first to offer the updated handset via its online store. The prices for iPhone 5c, as you may see at the link above, range from free to £409.99 (this is about $680).
A large number of existing iPhone users may upgrade to iPhone 6 because of its larger display, claims analyst Brian Marshall of ISI Group. Apart from that, Apple’s next-generation handset may lure new users - those people who previously used Android devices.
The analyst believes that the company from Cupertino will release two iPhone 6 models, one with 4.7-inch display and one with 5.5-inch display. Apple is expected to unveil both smartphones in the second half of 2014.
As you probably know, Apple is expected to release iOS 8 soon. This event is expected to take place later this year. However, ahead of the purported launch, a bunch of photos showing iOS 8’s new and amazing application called Healthbook surfaced on the Internet.
The company from Cupertino will release an 8GB iPhone 5c tomorrow. The new handset is expected to become about $80 cheaper that the current 16GB version, so looks like Apple is seriously planning to occupy the entry-level smartphones market.
Like every Sunday, I’ve come up with a list of the most interesting posts of the past week. Well, you know that. I hope that you got used to reading such roundups.
Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6 may look very similar to the current iPhone 5C. This is what is written in the latest report by Mac Otakara. Apart from that, the report cites some sources, which claim that in terms of design the new handset will slightly resemble iPod nano.
Apple’s next-generation iPhone might become $100 more expensive than the current iPhone 5s. Well, at least this is what Andy Hargreaves of Pacific Crest believes. The analyst suggests that the unlocked iPhone 6 might get a $635 price tag. Apart from the higher price, Hargreaves also predicts that there would be only one iPhone 6 model, not two, as was reported earlier. This handset may get a large 4.7-inch display.
