Although most of the analysts are sure that Apple won’t release a colorful iPhone 6c later this year, SET Solution experts have recently created a new concept showing the aforementioned handset. It features a thin plastic body and the dimensions of the iPhone 6. You may take a look at the concept either below, or on the official SET Solution YouTube channel.
A new interesting video has recently appeared on the Internet. This video shows us three flagship devices, namely, Apple’s iPhone 6, Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and HTC’s One M9 Plus compared to each other in terms of speed and performance.
The author of the short clip decided to use several applications to test the launch speed and the performance of each high-end smartphone. As can be seen in the video below, the iPhone 6 turned out to be the most efficient device. Samsung Galaxy S6 was nearly identical from the point of view of performance, while One M9 Plus was noticeably slower than the aforementioned devices. And that is strange since this handset has 3GB of RAM.
Several new rumors related to the upcoming iOS 9 and its features have recently appeared on the Internet. According to these rumors, the guys from Cupertino are currently planning to add the support of Force Touch technology to the next iteration of their mobile operating system. In case you don’t know, the aforementioned technology was first introduced in the Apple Watch and the 13-inch MacBook Pro released last month.
According to the latest rumors shared by insiders, Microsoft is currently planning to acquire BlackBerry. There are several reason for such a decisive step, namely, Microsoft’s desire to compete with Apple on the smartphone market on equal terms and the substantial amount of important patents owned by the Canadian company. However, it should be noted that Microsoft is definitely not the only industry giant interested in BlackBerry. Such firms as Huawei, Lenovo and Xiaomi are said to be considering the idea of purchasing the aforementioned smartphone manufacturer as well.
It is Sunday today, which means it is time for me to tell you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Let’s take a look at these articles right now.
According to the latest report released by usually reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the guys from Cupertino may officially announce the next-generation iPhone in August and release the device in September. This report goes in line with the rumors, which appeared earlier this week suggesting that Apple may change its usual update cycle and release the new iPhone model or models in August instead of September. It should be noted, however, that Apple has never organized any media events devoted to new product launches in August, so this may be the first time.
According to the latest report from reliable insiders, Apple is currently planning to release a new application in iOS 9 called Home. This application will allow users to control the HomeKit they own. In case you don’t know, the HomeKit platform was officially announced at WWDC last year. It lets developers create apps for iOS capable of controlling various smarthome appliances.
According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, Apple is planning to update the look of both iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 with a new font that was originally developed for the Apple Watch and is currently used on the wearable device. This new font will replace Helvetica Neue, which was introduced with the release of iOS 7 in 2013. In case you don’t know, the new font is called San Francisco; it was first shown to public last September.
The guys from Cupertino have recently released the very first update for the Apple Watch operating system. The Watch OS 1.0.1 contains a number of bug fixes and brings a number of performance and security improvements to the smartwatch. Unfortunately, there’s no Find My Watch feature, which was rumored to be included in the first software update. Looks like adding such a feature is a bit complicated task.
Apple on Tuesday released the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro and the 27-inch iMac with an amazing 5K display. The release took place one day earlier than we expected. As you know, rumors pointed to the official launch of the aforementioned devices on Wednesday.
According to the latest report released by The Wall Street Journal, last year, Apple decided to postpone the release of the television set. As noted in the report, the guys from Cupertino planned to add a 4K display, a FaceTime camera and a bunch of other interesting features to their TV-set. They even managed to create several working prototypes. However, the company executives decided not to enter such a competitive market and cancelled the release of the new device.
As you probably know, Universal is currently working on a new Steve Jobs biopic, which is expected to be released on October, 9th. The movie is directed by Danny Boyle and is based on the script written by Aaron Sorkin. Michael Fassbender is starring as Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs.
Nearly half a year before the official debut of the long-awaited biopic, Universal has released the very first trailer for the movie. It is available below, so you can take a look and then tell me what you think about this short clip.
The shipping times for many 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro models have recently begun slipping to 2 or 3 weeks. This indicates that the supplies of the high-end laptop continue to decline. It’s true that the guys from Cupertino may unveil a brand new 15-inch MacBook Pro model with a Broadwell processor inside at the Worldwide Developers Conference scheduled for June. However, keeping in mind that these chips are currently deeply constrained, I don’t think that the official announcement is imminent.
As you probably know, Apple’s main rival, Samsung, released two new smartphones, namely, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge earlier this year. Both handsets are made of aluminum and have a pretty nice design. According to the latest images posted online by @evleaks, in the near future, the South Korean tech giant will release something called the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active. The rugged version of the flagship device will reportedly feature a 5.1-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, a 14-nanometer Exynos 7420 processor and two cameras, rear and front-facing, with 16 megapixels and 5 megapixels respectively. Looks like there will be no fingerprint sensor. However, the waterproof and dustproof device will get a 3.500mAh battery.
According to the latest aerial images shared by a traffic reporter Ron Cervi, the construction workers at Apple’s Campus 2 are working with an enormous speed.
