The week has nearly come to an end, which means it is time to talk about the most popular posts of the past seven days.
A new video showing fully-assembled and even working iPhone 6 appeared on the Internet on Sunday. The video comes from a reliable source, which is a French blog called Nowhereelse.fr, so I'm almost sure we may believe what we see.
As noted in the latest report from TechCrunch journalists, Apple has recently begun shipping its new iPhones from the manufacturing facilities to the retail and wholesale partners. The amount of handsets is so great that these shipments even cause delays for other manufacturers of smartphones and tablets.
As noted in the latest report from The New York Times, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch will boast of flexible screen and wireless charging. The display of the wearable device will get a sapphire cover. Moreover, the same report suggests that the upcoming iPhone 6 will offer its users a one-hand mode. The reporters cite supply chain insiders, or, how they call them, "people knowledgeable about the product".
Apple on Thursday was granted a patent for a technology of hardening the sapphire structure. The patent application was published on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office official website. The patent is entitled "Sapphire property modification through ion implantation" and it describes a method of adding ions in a sapphire structure so that it becomes stronger and prevents this material from cracking. The advantage of the new technology is that it allows to make the sapphire stronger without using the chemicals.
According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple's suppliers are currently ramping up the production of components for the next-generation 9.7-inch iPad Air that is expected to be officially unveiled this fall alongside the Retina iPad mini. The new tablet will boast of faster A8 processor, improved Touch ID fingerprint sensor and some other hardware and software enhancements. Reliable insiders also believe that the tablet will become thinner. At the same time, the size and the display resolution of the device will reportedly remain unchanged.
A new video that shows us a device very similar to the fully assembled iPhone 6 has recently surfaced on the Internet. This is not the first video depicting the upcoming 4.7-inch handset, however, it allows us to take a closer look at the smartphone that is expected to be officially unveiled on September 9th.
As you probably know, Apple is currently working on its own mobile payment system based on the Near Field Communications technology. This is probably the main reason for the inclusion of the NFC chip to the company's new handset. Such a system will allow iPhone 6 users to make fast and secured purchases.
Luxury modified iPhone vendor Feld & Volk has recently shared a video of what appears to be partially working iPhone 6. The firm representatives say that they managed to assemble the device shown below from the leaked parts they got from Apple's suppliers.
Although you may be tired of the posts connected with the upcoming iPhone 6 and its support of the Near Field Communication technology (NFC), I feel that I have to share a new rumor with you. This rumor suggests that the next-generation handset will indeed get a chip that supports the new NFC standard that is yet to be launched. Moreover, people familiar with the matter believe that a Dutch firm called NXP will become the manufacturer of the chip.
Apple has officially announced a press event for September 9th at which the company is expected to unveil two next generation iPhones and a new wearable device.
The event starts at 10:00 a.m PST like usual; however, the Loop notes that it is being held in a different location.
Looks like the guys from Cupertino are indeed planning to announce their widely-rumored wearable device this year. However, according to what Re/code reporters write, the big event will take place not in October, as it was mentioned earlier, but in September, alongside the iPhone 6 release.
iWatch is a long-anticipated smartwatch that is expected to come in several different sizes and color options. It will boast of a number of sensors capable of monitoring the state of health of the user and measuring his or her level of fitness.
Several new images appeared on the Internet on Friday that show us both 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models. It should be noted that these are not actual photos of the handsets, but something like the prototype renderings. What is interesting about the smartphones shown on these renderings is that both of them feature protruding camera lenses and all-aluminum rear panels. Moreover, there is a chart near the two devices, which shows us sizes of the long-anticipated gadgets. You'd better take a look yourself.
Following yesterday’s report from GeekBar that dealt with the rumors about the amount of RAM Apple’s iPhone 6 may get, another one surfaced on the Internet today that suggests that the next-generation handset may be equipped with a new MDM9625 LTE modem manufactured by Qualcomm.
Following yesterday’s leaked images showing the interior parts for the next-generation iPhones with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays, two more photos surfaced on the Internet today, which once again prove that the smaller handset will get a 1.810 mAh battery.
