News tagged ‘iPhone 6’
I've made up a new list of the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Without wasting time, lets take a look at them.
Most of the articles deal with Apple's next-gen iPhone, which is expected to be released in the second half of this year. According to the reports from various sources, the handset will feature an NFC chip and a 1704 x 906 resolution display. Can't wait to see this device.
As the iPhone 6 release date draws near, more and more specs for the would-be device appear on the Internet. Today I want to tell you about the screen resolution of the handset.
The company from Cupertino is reportedly planning to restrict vacation time for its German retail employees in September. The only possible reason for such a decision is the launch of a new product or products. Aside from German employees, people working at Apple's retail stores in a number of other countries will get the same restricted vacations. This is another indication of the iPhone release, which is said to take place in August or September.
A couple of photos showing cases for both 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 have recently appeared on the Internet. According to what is shown on the images, we can say that the would-be handsets are noticeably larger than their predecessors.
Apple's iPhone 6 will be equipped with an NFC chip. This is what people familiar with the matter say. Apart from that, Apple has reportedly signed a deal with China UnionPay, which means that the Passbook app may soon start supporting this banking service.
It's Sunday today, which means I should tell you about the most interesting posts of past seven days. Let's begin.
As you probably know, Apple is expected to release its next-gen iPhone later this year. Ahead of the purported launch, more and more mockups and alleged schematics appear on the Internet. They look pretty much the same, however, each one has a unique or worth mentioning feature. That's why I try to describe each mockup thoroughly.
A bunch of new images showing iPhone 6 'latest' schematics have recently appeared on the Internet. Whether these images are legitimate or not is still a question since they were spotted on a Chinese WeiFeng network. The people who published the renderings on the Net claim they got the images directly from Apple suppliers.
A number of new photos showing fifth generation iPod touch compared to iPhone 6 physical mockup have recently appeared on the Italian website called Macitynet. Both devices looks pretty much the same, however, the iPhone mockup is noticeably larger.
By and large, the design of the mockup resembles the design of the iPod touch and earlier iPhone models. However, it has some differences, which can be seen on the images below.
According to the latest report from Economic Daily News, Apple may release its long-anticipated iPhone 6 with 4.7-inch display in August, not in September as it was reported earlier. Moreover, the 5.5-inch handset will come in September. The company from Cupertino is expected to ship as many as 80 million iPhone 6 units this year.
According to the latest rumors, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has already provided the first batch of fingerprint sensors for Apple's would-be iPhone 6, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. This may indicate that the mass production of all of the abovementioned gadgets will start soon.
The week has nearly come to an end, so I think we should take a look at the list of the most interesting posts. Let's start.
If to speak about popular articles, they deal mostly with the iPhone and the iWatch. In particular, over the past few days a couple of physical mockups have appeared on the Internet that show how Apple's next-gen handset might look like. Nearly all of the mockups are based on the leaked schematics and renderings, that is why they look a bit similar.
A couple of days ago, another iPhone 6 physical mockup appeared on the Italian website Macitynet. Below you may take a look at the images showing this device compared to Samsung's Galaxy S5.
The handset manufactured by the Korean company has a 5.1-inch display and a thickness of 8.1mm. These characteristics make the smartphone larger and thicker than the iPhone 6 mockup.
UPDATE: Another iPhone 6 mockup has appeared on the Internet late this morning. It is said to be based on the leaked 4.7-inch iPhone schematics. You can take a look at the mockup below.
A couple of images showing something what appears to be a physical mockup of the next generation iPhone with a 5.5-inch display have been spotted on the Internet. The mockup seems to be based on renderings shared by a Japanese website MacFan last month.
According to the latest rumors, Apple's next generation iPhone with a 4.7-inch screen may become as thin as the current iPod touch. In case you don't know, this device is only 6.1mm thick. Just for you to compare: iPhone 5s is 7.6mm thick.
Below you may take a look at the video published to YouTube by Unbox Therapy, in which the alleged iPhone 6 case we've already heard about is compared to a 2012 iPod touch.
According to the latest report from Kantar Worldpanel, the company from Cupertino has managed to improve its position on the world's smartphone market.
