After Apple missed iPhone sales expectations by as many as 4 million in the company’s last financial report to Wall Street, the company — and CEO Tim Cook in particular — could ill afford to suffer another setback for their popular yet increasingly embattled mobile device line-ups. And yet, with the launch of the recent version of iOS 7, users are reporting a bevy of negative side effects that could further erode people’s confidence in Cupertino’s iDevices. Read More
“Quantum dots” — much like “LiquidMetal,” it’s one of those cool yet nebulous technological terms that often seem to find their way into iPhone discussions. While we’ve been waiting for LiquidMetal to make an appearance on the iPhone for years now (above and beyond the little tool to remove sim cards), quantum dots technology is, in spite of its futuristic name, an up-and-coming technology that could very well find its way onto the iPhone 6.
According to a recent report from Business Insider India, the reason for the quantum dots excitement has to do with the fact that 1) the technology is coming into maturity, and 2) Apple has already patented some ideas around quantum dots that would make sense for the iPhone 6 Just as AMOLED has been seen for a long time as next-generation technology for mobile displays, so too could quantum dots be used to take screen resolution and color to a whole new level.
It’s almost incredible to believe, but the iPhone 6 solar powered rumor has caught fire in the rumor mill — enough so that even USA Today ran a video report on it.
In the video above, USA Today reports on rumors that Apple has been steadfastly working on a design that would utilize tiny solar panels to recharge the iPhone in the sunlight. This is rumored to go along with the purported, “locked-down” 4.8-inch iPhone 6 display.
Does the USA Today video piece fill you with good vibrations that the iPhone 6 will be solar powered?
Is this too early for new iPhone hardware to be leaking out? Not according to a Chinese site that is claiming to have photos of the next iPhone chassis. If this structure was indeed the next iPhone, it shows Apple regressing to previous construction techniques used in the iPhone 4 – not likely.
A form such as this size would provide a screen size of at least 4.7″, which many current iPhone users have been hoping for. However this example is showing very poor craftsmanship, and could really be made by anyone with access to a CNC machine and some spare time.

It has become relatively predictable with each new overhauled Apple device: make it thinner and lighter. While it might be a kind of easy way for Cupertino to recap the form factor of iPhones and iPads without actually revamping their overall look, consumers react positive to thinner, lighter devices (case in point, the burgeoning iPad Air).
Now, according to some chatter coming out of Asia, the iPhone 6 may be set to sport an extremely thin form factor in 2014.

There has been and will continue to be a long-standing debate in the rumor mill regarding the display size of the iPhone 6. Knowing that the 5S would be some sort of a refresh, users weren’t calling for or expecting a larger-screened iPhone in 2013. However, 2014 will be another story. Among avid iPhone users, the question isn’t, “will Apple increase the screen size of the iPhone 6?” but rather, “how much bigger will the iPhone 6 display be?”
According to a recent report, however, there might be more than one new screen size for the iPhone 6. Read More
