Apple is ready to release the all-in-one pro-oriented iMac after it has been announced in summer. The shipments will start on December 14.
According to the leaked images first spotted on a Taiwanese website called Apple.club.tw, a backlight assembly for the upcoming iPhone 7 has a relocated 3G Touch chip and flex cables that make it different from the part used in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Keeping in mind that the iPhone 6c will not support the 3D Touch feature and referring to the size of the components, we can assume that they are indeed designed for the iPhone 7. Apple.club.tw has a good track record, so the photos are most likely genuine and trustworthy.
It is Sunday today, so it is high time we discussed the most popular posts of the past seven days. For sure, the most interesting and a bit surprising post is the one telling us about the release of iOS 9 jailbreak. There are also some articles dealing with Apple’s new iMacs with Retina 4K and 5K displays as well as with the internal components of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
Apple has just released a new 21.5-inch iMac with an incredible Retina 4K display. Its resolution is equal to 4096 x 2304 pixels, apart from that, the device features the fifth-generation Intel Core CPU and Intel Iris Pro graphics. All these notable updates make the computer a worth purchasing device.
Apple has updated the specs for several devices, namely, the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the iPad Air 2 to show that these gadgets now support Bluetooth 4.2. In case you don’t know, earlier the aforementioned Apple-branded portable devices could boast of the support of an earlier standard, Bluetooth 4.0.
According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, Apple is planning to launch a 21.5-inch iMac with Retina display as soon as next week. The updated lineup of devices may hit the store shelves on October, 13th, however, the first batch is said to be limited due to unknown manufacturing difficulties. The same sources claim that Apple will not update the lineup of 27-inch iMacs this year.
It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last seven days. As you know, the guys from Cupertino are currently gearing up for the release of the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPad mini 4. That is why there’re so many articles this week that deal with the rumors about the next-generation iPhone and iPad or leaked parts for the upcoming devices. There’re also some posts that tell us about Apple’s newly-released iOS 8.4.1 with Apple Music improvements and patches for the vulnerabilities used for Taig jailbreak as well as about OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 with security enhancements.
According to the latest data accidentally shared by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the guys from Cupertino are planning to release the updated versions of Bluetooth Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboard later this year. Unfortunately, there’s no information about the design of the new accessories.
According to a new rumor, which has been recently shared by the Taiwanese insiders, the guys from Cupertino may soon add the Touch ID fingerprint sensor to a number of next-generation devices, namely, the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad. While such a rumor hasn’t yet been confirmed by reliable analysts or Apple suppliers, the addition of a fingerprint sensor may allow users to keep their data secured on every device they utilize. Moreover, placing a Touch ID on a laptop or a mouse can possibly make purchases with the help of Apple Pay even faster and easier.
The latest developer version of Google’s browser Chrome includes several new improvements. Now the software supports Apple’s multitouch gesturing in OS X Lion. This improvement allow you to flick your finger right or left with Magic Mouse or (two fingers with Trackpad) to go back or forth in your history. However, such gestures as double-tap or pinch can’t be used to smoothly zoom in and out, like in Safari on Lion. With another enhancement you can be assured that accidental hitting of the Command + Q combination will not quit Chrome since to quit the browser you need to hold down the combination for a brief time.
Along with new architectural features new version of Mac OS X also sports new look for the iCal, Mail and Finder, and some other applications look slightly different due to adoption of design elements implemented in the iPad. AppleInsider received the screenshots of new Lion's interface, and we're posting them below.

A new patent from Apple shows a display embedded in the Magic Mouse touch surface. Such display will be able to present some information or allow contextual input options. The display on the mouse would change according to what the user may be doing on their Mac. The display will be working in conjunction with actual Mac apps. For example, it will be showing a calculator when using the Numbers app on Mac, or a magnification of text when using Pages. The application notes that the dynamic touch-display input method could be employed on other devices like a keyboard, or even a mobile device like an iPhone or iPod touch.
As it was announced by Steve Jobs on the "Back to Mac"event, the next version of Mac OS X is dubbed as "Lion" and will come next summer, bringing some of iOS features to the platfrorm. According to Apple, Lion is being developed with taking into account the innovations that iPad brought with its software:
"Lion brings many of the best ideas from iPad back to the Mac, plus some fresh new ones like Mission Control that Mac users will really like. Lion has a ton of new features, and we hope the few we had time to preview today will give users a good idea of where we are headed."
So, what's the "magic?" Well, if you own a wireless Apple Magic Mouse then your biggest complaint is battery life. That means you're either purchasing alkaline after alkaline or you're constantly swapping in a fresh pair of rechargeables to keep the juice flowing. The Mobee Magic Charger does away with that nonsense with its inductive charging mini-USB base station and battery pack that slots into Apple's mouse - no special sleeve or bulky appendage required. Oh, and the 1.30oz / 37g battery pack - developed in-house by Switzerland-based Mobee - is actually lighter than a pair of AAs thereby reducing the overall weight of the mouse.
Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse was finally unveiled for the whole world. It is a sexy mouse designed by Microsoft, whose concept is very similar to the latest generation of Microsoft’s Arc Mouse, except that it has a touch-sensitive surface, and you can straighten it and curl up as you wish! Isn’t it a curious idea to combine Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad? Isn’t it quite interesting?
Of course, it has not yet been officially introduced by Microsoft. We took these photos from a German online store, which reports that it will be available on October 13.
You can buy Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse at € 69,99 in Europe or $ 69.95 in the USA.
