Apple has released the second public beta of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra to those users who have a valid public tester account. If you have a compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch for iOS 10 and Mac computer for macOS Sierra, you can sign up for Apple’s public beta testing program and try out the new software right now.
According to the results of the poll conducted among the U.S. customers, only 9.3% of current iPhone users are planning to upgrade to the newer iPhone 7 this year. The reason for such poor results is connected with rumors suggesting the iPhone 7 lineup will largely resemble the iPhone 6s lineup externally. If Apple changes the design of the iPhone in 2016, 25.2% of current users may upgrade.
Alongside iOS 9.3.3 and OS X El Capitan 10.11.6, Apple on Monday also seeded new betas of iOS 10, macOS Sierra, watchOS 3, and tvOS 10 to developers for testing purposes. If you have a developer account and a compatible device, you can get the pre-release version of any operating system right now.
Several new spy photos have recently appeared on the Internet. First shared on the Chinese social network Weibo, the images reveal the alleged iPhone lineup for 2016 consisting of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7, 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Pro. While the first two models have been largely discussed over the last couple of months, we know almost nothing about the “Pro” version of the smartphone. It appears that this would be a top-of-the-line gadget with Smart Connector and the dual camera.
Aside from making iOS 9.3.3 available for all users, Apple has just released OS X El Capitan 10.11.6. Just like the firmware for iPhones and iPads, the latest version of Apple’s operating system for Macs is a minor update that brings stability, security and performance enhancements as well as bug fixes. The update is recommended for all users of compatible Mac computers.
As it was reported earlier this year, Apple wants to make a term “AirPods” its new trademark and looks like very soon the desire of the company will come true. According to reliable sources, the trademark is now undergoing the review process. This means that soon the name may be used in the new product, for example, the widely-rumored wireless headphones shipped alongside the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Following a short video showing the assembled iPhone 7 that appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo and on YouTube a couple of days ago, new clip has been uploaded to the Net earlier today. As you can see below, this is something like a longer version of the previous video.
New image showing how the next-generation iPhone 7 may look like in Silver, Gold, Space Gray and Rose Gold has been posted on the Internet earlier today. The photo depicting the back panels in the aforementioned colors has been shared by an Apple news website macitynet.it. To be honest, the rear shells highlighted below are pretty similar to all previous leaks. They give us a look at the redesigned antenna bands and a new larger rear camera cutout. Unfortunately, from this angle we can’t see whether there is a headphone jack embedded into the parts.
A firm called Somaltus, LLC has accused Apple of infringing on its 2010 patent describing advanced battery technologies. Somaltus is the same firm that filed identical lawsuits against other major vendors, namely, Samsung, Sony, Asus, Lenovo, and Toshiba.
New interesting and rather controversial images have been posted online by the French website Nowhereelse.fr earlier today. The photos show the back panel from the alleged iPhone 7 Plus or Pro that features something similar to the cutouts for the Smart Connector. Apart from that, one can see an opening for the rumored dual lens camera and new antenna bands. In general, the leaked panel is similar to the iPhone 7 rear shells we have seen before, but is obviously larger. Whether the panel features a headphone jack is unknown, but possibly not.
According to the latest report from IDC, Apple’s computer shipments decreased in the second quarter of 2015. Due to this fact, the company has fallen to the fifth place in the ranking of worldwide PC shipments. Apple’s market share is now equal to 7.1%, down from 7.4% one year ago, and the number of Macs sold to customers worldwide accounted for 4,42 million units, down from 4,82 million units in 2015. The global PC market also experienced a decline of 4.5%. The shipments were equal to 64 million units.
According to the results of the recent survey conducted by a Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, 14.8% of current iPhone owners plan to upgrade to the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus once it comes out and 29% more may do this if they find the device attractive and worth an upgrade. The results of the survey are quite optimistic for Apple provided that most customers have no idea of what the next-generation phone may be as there is no official information about that.
It is Sunday today, which means it is high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last couple of days. In order not waste precious time, let’s start talking about the articles worth your attention straight ahead.
Apple has agreed to pay a firm called Mirror World Technologies, which is a Network-1 subsidiary, $25 million to settle the lawsuit and license the patents that describe a system that is capable of storing the files in a kind of chronologically ordered layout. Apple uses a similar system in Time Machine and Cover Flow and this infringes on the 1999 patent granted.
