As you probably know, the guys from Cupertino will officially unveil their next-generation iPhone 6 on Tuesday, September 9th. Moreover, several sources claim that tomorrow Apple will announce the long-anticipated iWatch. I honestly don't know if we can believe these rumors or not, but anyway, it would be interesting to take a look at such a device.
According to the latest reports from reliable sources, Apple's upcoming iWatch will support third-party apps and even feature its own App Store. However, nobody knows whether this will be a full-fledged version, like the one iPhone and iPad have, or just a separate section in the existing Apple online store.
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.
According to he latest report from The Information, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch may get a pretty weak battery. As noted by the author of the report, who is Jessica Lessin, even Apple employees close to the development of a wearable device "set low expectations" for its battery life.
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.
Apple on Tuesday seeded OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 7 to developers for testing. The release comes two weeks after the release of the sixth Yosemite beta, which contained a wide number of important bug fixes, improvements and design tweaks.
According to what people familiar with the matter write, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch won't be released until 2015 as it is currently in the engineering verification testing (EVT) stage. Before entering the mass-production stage, it has to go through the production verification testing (PVT) and this requires time.
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.
According to the images showing an assembled logic board from the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 shared by Feld & Volk and a well-known analyst Sonny Dickson, the new A8 processor may indeed get 1GB of RAM. The photos once again prove the rumor, which surfaced on the Internet earlier this month. Nevertheless, keep in mind that the legitimacy of the images haven’t yet been confirmed by the guys from Cupertino.
A couple of new high-resolution images have recently appeared on the Internet. These leaked photos show us something very similar to the iPhone 6 back panel with rear bands colored in a different way to fit the rest of the handset. This indicates that Apple's next-generation iPhone may indeed come in several colors, just like its predecessor. The images showing a leaked part for Apple's new handset have been first spotted on Nowhereelse.fr.
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.
Several new images have recently appeared on the Internet that show us new leaked components for the upcoming iPhone 6. These parts include SIM card trays, home buttons, new embedded Apple logo, internal speaker and a vibrator motor. The images have been first spotted on Nowhereelse.fr, so I guess we can believe them.
As noted by people familiar with the matter, the handset will come in three different colors, namely, space grey, gold and silver. Moreover, it will feature an updated Touch ID fingerprint sensor, a faster A8 processor and a number of other improvements. The design of the gadget will be very similar to the design of the iPhone 5s. The most conspicuous difference will be the size of the iPhone.
According to what Apple shared on Tuesday, iAds have recently become available in Russia and Switzerland with several new features like full-screen banners and pre-roll video. These features will allow the ad makers to earn more, so I guess adding them is a huge step forward.
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.
