iPhone 6 Front Panel Leaked

The photo shows an iPhone 5S next to what is reported to be the iPhone 6 front panel, and as you can see from the photo, it is considerably larger than the iPhone 5S.

The photo of the alleged iPhone 6 front panel was posted on Weibo, and this is said to be the front panel for the 4.7 inch version of Apple’s iPhone 6.
The iPhone 6 is said to come in two different sizes, one with a 4.7 inch display which will apparently launch in September, the other with a 5.5 inch or 5.7 inch display that will launch later in the year.
The iPhone 6 will come with Apple’s second generation 64-bit mobile processor, the Apple A8, it will also come with a new version of Apple’s mobile OS, Apple iOS 8, this is expected to launch in September along with the iPhone 6 and the Apple iWatch.
We are expecting the display of the iPhone 6 to come with sapphire glass, this is something that Apple is also apparently using for the Apple iWatch display.

12 inch MacBook and MacBook Air Updates Coming Soon

Weiphone forum poster has revealed some details about Apple plans for the upcoming Macbook Air and Macbook, as well as some information about the highly rumored iWatch.
The forum posted has a solid track record, and released legitimate information and photos of the un-released Macbooks in the past so we have a reason to believe he has some juicy bits to share with us.
According to this posted, Apple will launch a 12-inch Macbook will probably come without a fan assembly, as well as a redesigned trackpad and will feature retina display.
1. MacBook Air updates are coming soon; MacBook Pro updates won’t occur until September.
2. He discusses a new 12 inch notebook without fan assembly. It comes with a new trackpad design that doesn’t include the mechanical button, as we do on current MacBooks.
3. An Apple watch device does exist but still in prototype stage, so its announcement won’t come anytime soon.
Additionally, he also mentions that Macbook Air will also get a refresh soon, and also sheds some light on the Macbook Pros. According to the source, the upgraded Macbook Pros will launch, but it will not happen before September later this year. He also talked about the iWatch, saying that it will launch later this year.

Christian Bale to play Steve Jobs in next movie

Rumor is that Christian Bale is the frontrunner to play Steve Jobs. Bale apparently hasn’t actually been approached for the role yet, although he has been rumored to be a contender since before there was even a script. This biopic from Sony has been in the works for the past three years since soon after Steve Jobs died.
Aaron Sorkin was signed first to adapt Walter Isaacson’s biography into a movie about Jobs’ life, and David Fincher was added to the project after that. The pair were responsible for the Facebook movie, which received mixed reviews. Hopefully Bale will indeed be cast for the role, because you can’t miss when you have that kind of acting talent. Bale throws himself into every role.

The new new iPhone 5... An iPhone 5 Rumour Round Up

Speculation surrounding Apple's next big break is always rife around this time of year.  As the countdown begins for Christmas, rumours circulate left, right and centre about what the next model is going to be able to do.  What will it weigh, what will it be made of, how long will the battery last?  Apple have a lot to live up to and if the rumours are based in even half a jot of truth, it looks like they're planning a blockbuster.

Size and Shape

There are always grainy images making their way around the internet concerning what the new iPhone will look like.  Many of them are just enlarged or decreased through questionable editing, but there's no way for us to know whether they're real or not because Apple refuse to comment.  We hear that the next iPhone will be of a completely new design, akin to the 3GS's evolution into the 4,rather than the intra-model upgrades.  We're seeing a lot of rival smart phones going bigger with their screens, and Apple are currently one of the smallest models sitting at a 3.5in.  There are a lot of rumours that Apple will take a brave step in manufacturing a 5 inch screen model, but there are fears this would alienate previous models. 
The casing will also have to be changed to satisfy the user's lust for innovation.  Scratch-proof and finger print-proof materials have allegedly been employed since the beginning of Apple's foray into telecommunications but existing iPhones are definitely neither.  The California based company are said to be experimenting with military and aerospace grade glass types to achieve this.


It's such a simple and seemingly inconsequential detail but there is a frenzy about what the next model will be called.  So far we've seen the original iPhone be upgraded to the 3G and the 3GS.  Then the 4 came along with a recent upgrade to the 4S.  Logically speaking, with a new aesthetic design we'll be expecting the name to be released as the 'iPhone 5.'  But since the new iPad was concisely named 'the new iPad,' there are fears will go down the same marketing alley and not sate the appetites of all of us wanting an identifiable name. 


The aforementioned iPad is currently one of the only devices to be making use of 4G LTE technology.  It would seem odd and more than a little counter-intuitive for Apple to shun integrating these capabilities into the new iPhone.  But, we all know that one of the biggest downfalls of the iPhone is the battery life.  The increased bandwidth and download speed of an LTE device will surely please crowds, but what will they think when they see their daily charges becoming bi-daily, or tri-daily?  With most countries using different frequencies for LTE, will Apple see the production of different modems as a cost-effective exercise?


Smartphones are rapidly catching up to Tablets in terms of their hardware capabilities, and for a company leading the way in both fields; there's nothing to say that Apple won't stuff their newest phone with the latest tech.  Recent reports are staggering in their predictions, noting that the iPhone is more likely than not going to feature a quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM.  This would make the phone significantly more powerful than some netbooks and older laptops on the market today.  Much like in automotives, putting a huge engine in a car doesn't make it perform better.  In vehicles, you need to be able to get the power to the road.  With the iPhone, the problem will be running the hardware from a battery without overloading or simply draining it constantly.


 The iPhone 5, or the New iPhone, we don't know what it's called yet but it's surely going to hit the shelves harder than any of its predecessors.  It's difficult to see truth through the amount of rumours abounding, but it's awfully fun to watch...

iPhone 5 To be Announced September 12th [Rumor]

As we are waiting for Apple to release their six generation iPhone, the iPhone 5 we are starting to hear more and more rumors about the handset.
Now according to a recent report, Apple will announced the iPhone 5 on the 12th of September, which would mean that the device would go on sale some time in September, with a rumored launch date of the 21st of September.

The rumors comes from the guys over at iMore, who have also said that at the same time as the iPhone 5 announcement, Apple will also announced the rumored smaller iPad mini.
Of course these are just rumors at the moment, and we can expect a few more of these over the coming weeks.

iPhone 5 To Feature New 19 Pin Dock Connector

According to a recent report by Reuters, the iPhone 5 will feature a new 19 pin dock connector.
According to the report, the headphone socket on the iPhone 5 will be moved to the bottom of the device next to the new docking connector, on the iPhone 4 and 4S the headphone socket is on top of the device.

We are expecting Apple’s iPhone 5 to feature a new slimmer design, and heard last week that Apple intends to use their new nano SIM cards in the iPhone 5.
Apple are expected to launch the iPhone 5 some time in either September or October and  that the device may be announced at a special Apple event next month.

Apple to Announce the 'iPhone 5' on August 7th? [Rumor]

Know Your Mobile claims to have learned that Apple will announce the 'iPhone 5' on August 7th.

A reliable industry source who wishes to remain anonymous revealed to Know Your Mobile that Apple's highly-anticipated and much-rumoured iPhone 5 will be launched via a keynote speech on August 7.

The new date correlates with reports from earlier in the month the iPhone 5's release had been brought forward from October to August.

Apple announced the iPhone 4S on October 4th of last year but hasn't given any indication of when it might announce an update to its popular smartphone.

Apple iPhone 5 Spec Rumours

With every passing week of silence from Apple, there are numerous blogs, websites, newspaper articles and TV stories detailing what the apple iPhone 5 will be like. The release of the latest Android OS and Samsung’s new phones has only fuelled these rumours.

Here is a round-up of some of the rumours about the latest iPhone that have been trending quite rampantly in the tech world:

Release Date

Industry watchers expected the Apple iPhone 5 to release in 2011. However, in 2011, Apple only released the iPhone 4s. Due to this, the release date of the iPhone 5 is expected to be sometime towards the end of 2012. Some tech bloggers say that the iPhone will be released in September or October, keeping with the usual Apple schedule of releasing new models with 12-month gaps. It is said that the device will be named iPhone5, as Apple has bookmarked the same domain name.

Screen Specs

The iPhone 5 phone is likely to have a screen size of 4.08 inches. The phone will measure 90.3 mm x 50.9 mm. It may have a resolution of 1136 x 640 (320 PPI). The maximum brightness will be 500 nits, and the screen will feature in-cell touch control technology. TMD, LG Display and Sharp are likely to supply the screen panels. Analysts say that even though the screen is larger than iPhone 4, the battery consumption of the newer model is likely to be similar to that of its predecessor. It is speculated that the manufacturer rejected the idea of a larger screen due to excessive battery consumption, and the fact that it would make it difficult to operate it single-handedly. The screen may be a glass curved screen – a rumour that has gained credibility once it was learnt that Apple has bought over 200 glass cutting machines.

Other Specs

The new iPhone 5 may have a quad-core processor provided by Samsung, and dock connecting technology. In terms of looks, it is touted as being entirely different from the other Apple phones that have been released so far. The body will be made of liquid metal, and will have a ‘sleek unibody casing’. Liquid metal is known to be light, slim and well-resistant to impact. To put it simply, it will look less like the older iPhone versions, and more like recent versions of the Mac Book Pro. It may also have a 1GB built-in RAM.

The Camera

The camera is said to be one of the major improvements in the new iPhone. Apple is said to be in talks with Sony to procure its new RGBW and High Dynamic Range sensors to improve the performance of the camera. The new camera, whose sensors will be smaller in size, will have a resolution of 8 megapixels, and will work much better in low-light settings compared to the previous Apple phones. The fact that Apple recently received a patent for the multi-point camera focusing system has led to speculation that this feature will debut in the iPhone 5.
This multi-focusing feature will allow users to select two or more areas of interest, following which the picture will be processed to render those areas with great sharpness. One of the rumours heard about the camera is that the phone will have a camera that supports both photo and video 3D; however, industry watchers have termed this rumour baseless and untrue.

Other Features

Apple’s new phone may feature the Google wallet mobile payment platform. These rumours have gained steam after the news came that Google could be looking to allow other manufacturers to use the software in their phones too. The phone might feature Near Field Communication technology, which will help users to use their phones as credit or debit cards. Apple is said to have a top developer working on an app to make this possible.


It is rumoured that the new iPhone will cost approximately GBP 500, assuming that the memory is kept at 16GB/ 32 GB options. The pricing of the phone is likely to go much higher only if the technology used to make the phone is of a new generation altogether.

First pictures of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs

We already knew that Ashton Kutcher was slated to play Steve Jobs in an upcoming movie, but until now we haven’t seen any images of Kutcher as Steve Jobs. Now Kutcher has been spotted wearing a costume similar to Steve Jobs’ signature “Apple uniform” walking around LA, according to TMZ.

The low-budget indie movie, reportedly titled Jobs: Get Inspired, is said to focus on Jobs’ early career, the founding of Apple through the Pixar and NeXT years. If that isn’t enough, a major film about Jobs is also underway with Sony Pictures, who acquired the rights to Walter Isaacson’s biography of the former Apple CEO and co-founder.

Samsung is Working On Their Own Cloud Service

There have been rumors for a while that Samsung is working on their own cloud based service for their smartphones and tablets, and now according to a recent report the service will be called S-Cloud.
According to the report Samsung’s S-Cloud will look to take on Apple’s iCloud offering and the service is expected to be officially announced on May the 3rd, maybe we will hear more about the new Samsung Galaxy S III at the same time.

The Samsung S-Cloud service is reported to be similar to Apple’s iCloud, although it is reported to come without limitations and will apparently give you access to TV shows, movies and music, with both free and paid content.

Ashton Kutcher to Play Steve Jobs In New Movie?

Ashton Kutcher is set to play Steve Jobs in the upcoming indie film entitled 'Jobs' which is written by Matt Whiteley and will be directed by Michael Stern, according to Variety.

The film will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple, where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time. Five Star Institute's Mark Hulme is financing and will produce the pic, which is skedded to start production in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from his hit CBS series.

Sony is also producing a film based on the Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs. Last November, Aaron Sorkin was rumored to be 'strongly considering' writing the Steve Jobs movie for Sony. No word on whether that title has gone into production yet.

Next iPhone To Feature 3.5 Inch Display And 4G LTE

There have been a number of rumors over the last week that this years iPhone will come with a 4.6 inch display, the rumor originally came from Reuters, who had said that the sixth generation iPhone would launch in the second quarter of 2012.
Well it looks like the report was nothing but a rumor, as we suspect, as there are now conflicting reports saying that this years iPhone will come with the same 3.5 inch display which is featured in the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

The news comes from the guys over at iMore, who have also said that the new iPhone will come with a new smaller dock connector than they existing models and also 4G LTE.
They are also saying that the device will launch in the fall, which sounds much more likely than the rumored second quarter launch date from Reuters.
Apple launched the iPhone 4S in October of last year, so we can expect the new iPhone to launch around the same time this year and we suspect it will land in either September or October of 2012.

First iPad 3 Shipments From Foxconn to the U.S.A.?

Shipments of the iPad 3 are reportedly en route from Foxconn to the U.S.A., according to a post on WeiPhone.

The poster said initial deliveries will be made by Friday, March 9th:

Friends broke the news: Chengdu International Airport at major international cargo charter flights, cargo owners demanding security, from CTU takeoff by stop PVG Shanghai, and then directly to ORD Chicago, the JFK New York, LAX in Los Angeles, March 9, completed before transport. According to the privately disclosed the Chengdu F production for the U.S. A company's latest products…

9to5Mac posted a translation from another Chinese-speaking reader:

Our company started undertake a load of top-secured cargo. The owner has extreme requirements for the security. In order to prevent the cargo from being dragged on the airport ramp for too long, as well as shortening the time the cargo stay on the airport ramp, we hereby require XXXX to schedule all the XXX cargo planes from Feb. 26 to Mar. 9. to XXX slot.

iPhone 5 Coming In September Or October?

Apple normally releases the iPhone around June or July, last year was the exception with the iPhone 4S being launched in October, and now it would appear that Apple may follow the same pattern for this years iPhone.
According to a recent report from Macotakara, Apple intends to launch the next generation iPhone, which may be called the iPhone 5, although the iPhone 4S is the fifth generation iPhone, in either September or October of 2012.

According to Asian reliable source, next iPhone will be released in September or October , and this cycle seems to be kept for years.” – Macotakara
It would make sense for Apple to launch the iPhone 5 in either September of October, as the majority of people who bought the iPhone 4S and wanted to upgrade to the new model would be in at least a 12 month contract with their mobile carrier.
If Apple released it around June or July, like the have done in previous years, this could mean additional costs for people who wanted to upgrade.

Apple Testing 8 Inch iPad Tablet (Rumor)

Apple is expected to unveil the new iPad 3 at an event which may take place on the 7th of March, and just like last year we are starting to hear rumors that Apple is working on other iPads with smaller displays.
The news comes from the WSJ, who have said that some of Apple’s suppliers have been shown screen designs for a smaller iPad, with a display of around 8 inches.
The rumored 8 inch iPad is reported to have a screen resolution of the existing iPad 2, which doesn’t seem like a bad idea as the new iPad 3 is rumored to come with a much higher resolution display.
This would allow Apple to sell two models of the iPad, the 8 inch model at a lower price point, and the new HD display iPad 3 at the same price as the existing iPad 2.
I very much doubt that Apple will announce a smaller 8 inch iPad at the same time as the new iPad 3, although it could be something that Apple are working on for the future.
