Its time for the Apple WWDC again and this year is no excpetion for the rumours and expected announcements.
Apple are either being very clever or very silly.
The red iPhone 7 and 7 Plus differ from other models in colour only.
Apple has launched a red version of its iPhone 7 and 7 Plus as well as a new video app for iOS.
The red iPhone celebrates Apple’s 10-year partnership with Red, an organisation that aims to combat Aids.
Apple is expected to replace current 3D Touch technology with a new design based on thin film sensors when it introduces a next-generation iPhone with OLED display, according to noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Apple’s next generation iPhone will feature a wraparound OLED 5.8-inch display with integrated fingerprint sensor, according to a research note from Cowen and Company. Additionally, the phone is expected to include some “form of facial/gesture recognition”.
Damn! I feel old. AT&T has confirmed that it has shut down 2G services in the US. So if you live there and your phone only makes GSM calls and uses EDGE for data – like the Original iPhone (AKA iPhone 2G), you’re stuck with only WiFi as the only option. The move won’t hurt very many people (even basic phones have been using 3G for years), but it’s hard not to shed a little tear for a technology that had been around for so long – especially as it’ll soon also be leaving networks elsewhere in the world too.
The latest iteration of iPhones have introduced some exciting new features, but they come at a cost if you opt for the unbelievably still available 16GB model. With 10GB of actual available storage if you’re lucky, the new features will undoubtedly fill it up quickly. But if it’s all you can afford or care to spend on the new model, there is still hope.
Investors following Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) know that the company follows what has been widely referred to as a “tick-tock” development model for its iPhone. In one year, the company releases a new industrial design, and in the other, it uses the same basic industrial design as in the prior year, but with upgraded internals.
Last year, Apple rolled out the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which were fundamental redesigns of the consumer electronics giant’s popular handsets. This year, however, Apple is expected to focus principally on internal improvements while retaining the same basic iPhone 6/6 Plus designs.
Rumors and past release date info have thus far pointed towards a September launch date for the iPhone 6, which has now been confirmed by a reliable source that spoke to MacRumors.
Mass shipments of the iPhone 6 from China to the United States are expected to occur during the last two weeks of August and it is likely that Apple will announce the iPhone 6 during the first or second weeks of September. The first deliveries of the device will come later in the month on a corresponding Friday, roughly a week and a half after the event.
Apple senior software engineer Greg Christie has revealed a number of details about the birth of the iPhone to the Wall Street Journal.
Christie and his team were struggling with the original iPhone’s software when Apple co-founder and then-CEO Steve Jobs told the group it had two weeks to figure it out, or it would lose the project to another team.
