A bunch of new rumors appeared on the Internet today that deal with Apple’s iPad Air 2, new iPad mini and the long-anticipated iWatch. According to a report from Technews.tw, the next-generation iPad Air may get 2GB of RAM and the iWatch will be equipped with 8GB of flash storage and 512MB of RAM.
According to the latest leaked schematics shared by GeekBar, the guys from Cupertino are currently planning to release a 128GB iPhone 6 model. If the schematics are legitimate, in September we may see three devices: with 16GB, 64GB and 128GB of memory on board. Yes, this is not a mistake. As you can see on the image below, the 32GB iPhone 6 model is missing from the list, so looks like there will be no iPhone with such an amount of memory.
According to the latest report from 9to5Mac reporter Mark Gurman and an image posted to Instagram by the firm called Feld & Volk, Apple’s next-generation iPhone models with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays may get screen resolutions of 1472 x 828 pixels. While earlier it was reported that the new handsets will boast of the resolution of 1704 x 960 pixels, the aforementioned reporter managed to find some other proofs that confirm the new resolution. The proofs have been found in the latest Xcode 6 beta.
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.
According to the latest reports from BGR, the guys from Cupertino have recently released iOS 8 Beta 6 to select partners. It should be noted, however, that this is still not a gold master seed of the mobile operating system. Very soon, Apple is expected to release a final version of iOS 8 to developers for testing and after that, probably on September 9th, the new version of iOS will become available for all users worldwide.
Apple has earlier today seeded OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 6 to developers for testing. According to the latest reports from reliable sources, the new version of Apple’s operating system for Macs contains a wide number of important improvements and bug fixes.
According to the latest report from J.P. Morgan analyst Rod Hall, the guys from Cupertino are very unlikely to equip the iPhone 6 models with the screens made of sapphire. The reason for such a step is the high cost of production of sapphire in large quantities. The analyst notes that using sapphire as the main material for the manufacture of 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone displays is about 10 times more expensive than using Corning's Gorilla Glass.
According to the latest report from a security researcher Axelle Apvrille, a new piece of malware has been recently discovered that is developed to hijack the ad revenue. It is called AdThief. Malicious software infects jailbroken devices, so if you have one, be careful while using Cydia. You see, the malware comes in the form of Cydia Substrate extension and it is nearly impossible for an average user to identify and get rid of it.
Today a new report appeared online that suggests that the next-generation 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will be nicknamed as the iPhone 6L. Apart from this interesting piece of information, several new images surfaced online that show us a bunch of leaked parts for Apple’s smartphone. These parts include a larger battery (I mentioned it in the previous post), a logic board and, of course, a front panel.
According to the latest reports from the Wall Street Journal, only high-end models of iPhone 6 will get sapphire-covered displays. The screens for other devices will be made of material that is much stronger than Gorilla Glass, but isn’t actually sapphire, sources claim. It should be noted that the reporters’ suggestions haven’t yet been confirmed, which means that all of the handsets may get displays made of protective material other than sapphire.
New photos from Dianxinshouji suggest that Apple may ship its next-generation 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones with brand new Lightning cables that feature reversible USB connectors. Looks like the guys from Cupertino managed to solve the problem with a cable, which never fits the USB slot from the first time. And that’s another reason to buy an iPhone 6 this fall.
A bunch of images showing something what appears to be a genuine iPhone 6 smuggled out of Foxconn appeared on the Internet earlier today. The device shown below looks pretty much the same as the iPhone 5s, however, it can boast of several noticeable improvements that include a larger screen and a new back panel. The design of the handset goes in line with all the previous rumors and reports. Still, there is no way to check the legitimacy of the photos, so I suggest you to take them with a few pinches of salt.
According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple's Asian supplier Pegatron has recently won a contract for the production of 25 million 4.7-inch iPhone 6 units of the 50 million that are expected to be shipped this year.
According to what Chinese insiders write, Apple’s iPhone 6 has entered a final product testing stage ahead of the start of the mass-production. Today’s report contradicts the report, which appeared on the Internet last month and which suggested that the next-generation handset had already entered mass-production. Looks like the guys from Cupertino encountered some manufacturing issues that prevented them from beginning the assembling process in time.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, the guys from Cupertino aren’t currently planning to launch a replacement program for the early-2011 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pro models, which have problems with GPUs that cause constant system crashes and graphics failures. Even though Apple employees are aware of the problem, they still offer no refunds or discounts on repairs of the affected computers.
