Apple is rumored to be working on a larger iPhone 6, carrying a screen size of 5.5 inches. Some reported schematics have leaked, and the folks at MacRumors have commissioned designer Ferry Passchier to create press renders based on this information.
An article from China’s Economic Daily News suggests the Taiwan-based company, Quanta Computer, has secured an exclusive contract from Apple to build the long-rumored iWatch. The report comes with some specific features of the rumored Apple iWatch, and estimates when we can expect production to begin.
Re/code, an independent tech news website, has published leaked legal documents submitted as evidence in the Samsung vs. Apple trial, and four slides Samsung got ahold of from Apple’s April 2013 meeting about 2014 plans. If legit, the documents and slides show the slow growth of the 4-inch models and indicate why Apple should create a larger screen iPhone 6.
According to a new report from Reuters, citing supply chain sources, Apple product manufacturers are gearing up to begin mass production of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in May, with an expected launch in autumn this year. As far as the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is concerned, it will be launched a few months later as the manufacturers are having issues with the in-cell technology.
We just took a look at some iPhone 6 concept images, now let’s see what the rumor mill has for us in the way of leaked iPhone 6 photos. Previous images revolved around the larger display, suggesting the upcoming iPhone 6 will come with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch form factors. Now, some sketchy images have emerged from Foxconn, Apple’s manufacturing partner, showing us the alleged iPhone 6 in a testing facility.
Not too long ago, a leaked image allegedly revealed the schematics and dimensions of the upcoming iPhone 6. Based on this information, the folks at NoWhereElse have teamed up with the creative Martin Hajek (whom we know from previous Apple iDevice concept designs) to create iPhone 6 concept renders for the viewing pleasure of Apple fans.
We’ve heard several times in the past few weeks about the possibility of Apple launching two new iPhones with larger screen sizes later this year. UBS’s Steve Milunovich, however, citing “checks” in the supply chain, reports we may end up with the usual single iPhone upgrade in 2014.
The last new MacBook model was the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display released back in October 2012, so Apple is arguably overdue for something to shake things up in the laptop category, which isn’t dead yet by a long shot. A 12″ slim MacBook is reportedly in development, combining the portability of the 11″ MacBook Air, the productivity of the 13″ model, and a Retina display.
Purported screenshots of iOS 8 have shown up from a Weibo account, including icons of Preview, TextEdit, Tips and Healthbook. The credibility of the source of images remains uncertain, but the reporter claims he has confirmed the legitimacy. So, we’re again merely speculating on the latest from the rumor mill, but it’s still fun.
I’ve found an interesting Apple iWatch mockup that has triggered my imagination and made me hopeful of what is yet to come. Designers from all over the world are churning out concepts, just like Tomas Moyano from Argentina. His is by far the best concept I’ve ever seen, including the features I would want in a smartwatch.
According to a new report from Taiwanese shores, Apple will reportedly cease production of the non-Retina 13-inch Macbook Pro later this year and will replace it with thinner models equipped with Retina display. The move is expected to happen in the second half of 2014, according to a new report from Digitimes.
Apple has been testing the latest iOS 7.1, and has seeded several betas of the software to developers to screen out bugs and test new features. While previous rumors have pegged the launch date for the iOS 7.1 to March, it could reach users as early as next week, according to John Gruber of Daring Fireball.
