Several images showing something what appears to be a back panel for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 have been spotted online today. The photos have been first published on Evasi0njailbreak. The panel looks just like the panel for the 4.7-inch handset and features the same cutout for the new Apple logo, new antenna breaks and the holes for camera and LED flash. The only notable difference is the size of today’s back shell.
According to what has been recently shared by a Weibo user nicknamed GeekBar, Apple’s iPhone 6 will get only 1GB of RAM. This is the same amount of RAM as can be found inside of the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. If the leaked schematics are indeed for the upcoming 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch iPhone 6, we may assume that in terms of the amount of RAM, Apple’s next-generation smartphone will be weaker than the existing flagship devices of the rival vendors, which already have 2GB of RAM on board.
As you probably know, every year ahead of the release of the new iPhone, both experts and ordinary people hope that the guys from Cupertino will at last equip the new handset with an NFC chip. Every year, such hopes collapse, but looks like in 2014 Apple decided to surprise its fans and add the support of the near field communication (NFC) technology to its next-gen smartphones.
According to the leaked schematics shared by GeekBar, the iPhone 6 will be indeed equipped with an NFC chip.
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.
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.
Several new images appeared on two different websites yesterday that show something what appears to be new batteries for the upcoming 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models.
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.
Not only the embedded Apple logo and camera ring for the next-gen iPhone appeared today on the Internet. Apart from these two leaked parts, another one surfaced on a website called Apple.Club.tw. This is a leaked front panel for the upcoming 4.7-inch iPhone 6. You know what? Since it looks similar to the panel of the iPhone 5s, I think it is the panel that will be actually installed on Apple's new handset.
According to the latest reports from Asian experts, Apple's next-generation 4.7-inch iPhone will boast of better 2100mAh battery. The ESM-China analyst Sung Chang Xu says that he got the information from reliable supply chain sources, however, I don't think we can believe it.
As you probably know, Apple’s iPhone 6 will feature a new A8 processor manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company. According to what the Wall Street Journal reporters write, Apple’s collaboration with TSMC is hurting Apple’s main market rival Samsung, which used to produce processors for the previous generations of the iPhone and iPad.
It is Sunday today, that is why I have decided to make a roundup of the most popular posts of the past seven days. I think you should take a look.
As it was expected, President Obama has signed the Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act. The legislation, which successfully passed the US House of Representatives and the US Senate earlier this year, makes it legal for any user to unlock any smartphone purchased on the territory of the USA.
Apple’s smartphone market share in the world continues to decrease. The reason for the iPhone to lose ground is a great number of small Chinese manufacturers that produce cheap, but at the same time, efficient handsets. As we know, price is the key factor, which influences customers in the developing countries.
The week has come to an end, that is why I have come up with a list of the most popular posts of the past seven days. Let's take a look at these posts right now.
Looks like soon the smartphone unlocking will be made legal again and that's a piece of good news for the customers in the USA and worldwide. It seems as if soon it will be absolutely legal to unlock iPhones and other smartphones purchased in the United States.
