Looks like the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus sales will beat the last-year’s record 10 million launch weekend sales. Apple has just acknowledged that the customer response turned out to be high at the start of sales and that the pre-orders were incredibly strong in the countries of the first wave of launch.
A couple of weeks ago, a rumor appeared on the Internet that suggested that the iPhone 6s will get a smaller battery size and capacity than the iPhone 6. The rumor was accidentally proven by Apple in the iPhone 6s Introduction Video. Attentive users managed to see that the battery has a capacity of 1715mAh, which is noticeably lower than the capacity of the battery found in the iPhone 6 (1810mAh).
Apple has finally revealed the widely rumored iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro with a 12.9-inch display. Both tablets can boast of updated hardware and the larger one comes in a completely new size.
It is Sunday today, which means it is time to discuss the most popular posts of the past seven days. It was very difficult to choose only ten articles since this week turned out to be full of events and rumors worth your attention.
Apple may soon release a new iMac with a "much better display". Such rumor has been recently published by a well-known KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The expert has also suggested that Apple may equip new iMac lineup with more powerful and energy-efficient Intel processors. Ming-Chi Kuo has a good track record when it comes to the releases of Apple gadgets, that is why his prediction looks plausible.
According to the latest report from KGI analysts, the next-generation iPhone 6s will feature a 5-megapixel front camera. Moreover, the same insiders claim that the back 12-megapixel photo sensor will not have a sapphire cover lens. Quite surprisingly, sapphire failed the drop tests, that is why Apple has decided to opt for something else.
According to the latest rumor shared by a reliable source, the Apple Watch may be released in a number of new countries including Austria, Denmark and India later this month. The rumor comes from an Austrian website called MacMania. The reporters claim the information was obtained from a reliable insider working for a large electronics chain. There are no physical Apple Stores in Austria, so a big retailer can be a the only source of information about the launches of Apple products.
According to a report from GizmoChina, the design of the widely-rumored iPhone 6c will be identical to the design of the iPhone 5c. This means the handset will get the same plastic body with colorful back shells. Does this mean that the device will be a copy of the iPhone 6 in terms of hardware? Well, we don’t know this for sure, but if to keep in mind that the 5c was a copy of the previous-generation Apple smartphone, such a suggestion really makes sense.
It is Sunday today, which means it is high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Let’s take a look at these posts right now.
Most of the articles this week deal with Apple’s next-gen iPhone and rumors about its hardware components and the release date. There’re also some posts that tell us about the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and about a new security vulnerability found in OS X Yosemite 10.10.5.
According to the latest report from a research firm Gartner, global iPhone sales grew 36% year-on-year. Quite obviously, the market share grew as well if to compare with the same quarter of the last year. As noted by the analysts, iPhone market share in the second quarter of this year was equal to 14.6%. That’s a 2.4% improvement in contrast with the Q2 2014. The guys from Cupertino managed to sell more than 48 million iPhones over the past couple of months.
According to the latest report from usually-reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the mass production of the long-awaited 12.9-inch iPad Pro will start in September or October. Looks like in September the guys from Cupertino will show us only the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus as well as the iPad mini 4. Just like new iPhones, Apple’s iPad Pro will support the Force Touch technology currently used in the Apple Watch and several MacBooks from the 2015 lineup.
According to the latest report from Macerkopf, Apple will launch the long-anticipated iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on September 18th. The start of sales will take place a little bit more than a week after the debut of new devices at a special media event scheduled for September 9th. As noted by the same insiders, German carriers are currently gearing up for the start of the next-gen iPhone sales.
According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, Apple won’t release the iPad Air 3 this year. DigiTimes reporters claim that Apple has decided to focus on the development of the smaller iPad mini 4. In case you don’t know, this tablet is expected to get a thinner body as well as several hardware improvements. The next-generation iPad mini will have iOS 9 on board and support all the features of the new mobile operating system. Apple suppliers have reportedly started the production of the components for the upcoming device, which may be officially announced alongside new iPhones on September 9th.
According to the latest rumors shared by people familiar with the matter, even though the next-generation iPhone will boast of a more efficient processor, 12-megapixel camera, updated NFC and LTE chips, 2GB or RAM, and a number of other noticeable improvements, its market share may see zero or negative growth in the fourth quarter of this year. Latest estimates from KGI prove that Apple may sell between 65 million and 75 million iPhone units in Q4 2015. As to the reason for such relatively weak sales, it may be connected with problems in the Chinese economy as well as with the limited usage of the widely-rumored Force Touch display.
According to the latest report from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, in the second quarter of 2015, iPhone’s market share grew noticeably in such countries as Britain, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. The share on Apple’s native U.S. market saw a decrease. It should be noted, however, that this happens every year before the release of the new iPhone model.
