A photo of an Apple Store chart has surfaced that suggests the company may have plans to launch a slightly modified line of 15-inch Retina MacBook Pros that will come with 16GB of RAM standard, as well as faster Haswell processors. The photo purportedly comes from Apple’s Chongqing store in China.
This past weekend saw the release of several images showing what was purportedly the bare logic board for the soon-to-be-released 4.7-inch iPhone 6. Now, new photos are circulating allegedly showing the same part coming from a larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model.
I’m not sure the world really needs a 5.25mm thick iPad mini. It would be interesting technologically, but he current mini seems comfortably small, light, and thin enough for me. However, if Apple indeed does launch an iPad mini Air, I hope enough people will disagree with me on that point to make it a success for Apple and secure the mini’s future.
According to a new report from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, Foxconn is prepping to start mass production of the alleged 4.7-inch iPhone next week. This shouldn’t come as a surprise if the launch of the alleged iPhone 6 is set to be in September, which is usually the time when we get the first official look at the next-generation iPhone models.
Recently, the folks at NoWhereElse posted some images of a battery which they believe will be a part of the iPhone 6. If the leaked image is for the iPhone 6, then the 1,810 mAh battery is in line with a rumor we heard earlier this month, which predicted a capacity between 1,800-1,900 mAh. It would also be a significant improvement over the 1,560 mAh battery found inside the iPhone 5s.
Traditional cameras have fallen by the wayside because of smartphones—the iPhone in particular. The iPhone has slowly become the most common camera device for the average consumer, and that change in the market is a result of the product’s great camera hardware and software. It is always expected Apple will improve the iPhone’s camera with each generation, and that appears to be true with the upcoming iPhone 6.
Apple is, of course, rumored to be working on two new iPhone 6 models carrying a bigger display—one being 5.5-inches while the second is 4.7-inches. And now, echoing rumors from a long time back, the phablet sized iPhone 6 model may get delayed due to production issues, which could push it back into 2015.
Apple is widely anticipated to be launching a presumably quad core, 64 bit, ARM based A8 central processor system-on-ship in a few weeks to power the new iPhone 6 and the next round of upgrades to the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display. The A8 SoC is plenty exciting, but there’s always something newer and faster coming next as chip foundaries vie for Apple orders.
Haptic feedback has been offered in Android phones for years, but Apple has refrained from offering it as a feature in the iPhone. That may change with the iPhone 6, according to a new report from the Chinese media. The feature would provide vibrations that will differ depending on what someone is doing on the phone and which part of the display is being touched.
In case you haven’t yet had your fill iPhone rumor and speculation, here’s another interesting bit. Spigen—the popular case manufacturer known for teasing cases for unreleased products—has done it again. The company has teased an image on Google+ which may drop some hints about the upcoming iPhone 6.
This latest rumor may be disappointing if it turns out to be true. According to new reports from China, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will come with battery capacity of 1,800 to 1,900 mAh. That’s an improvement over the current 1,570 mAh battery, but it may be a little small to power a 4.7-inch device.
As we near the probable September release of the iPhone 6, we’ve seen countless dummy units, mockups, and what not. Most of them look incomplete, or are based on leaks that will likely prove inaccurate. For a better idea of what to expect, designers Tomas Moyano and Nicolàs Aichino created some concept images of the upcoming iPhone 6, which are by far the best ones we’ve seen to date.
