Ultra-Thin iPhone 6 Chassis Most Likely a Fake: Report

Posted by Core2 under iPhone 6 News on Thursday Jan 9, 2014

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.

How Thin Will Apple Go For The iPhone 6?

Posted by Michael Nace under iPhone 6 News on Tuesday Jan 7, 2014

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.

Foxconn Leak Claims Two Sizes For iPhone 6

Posted by Michael Nace under iPhone 6 News on Saturday Jan 4, 2014

iphone 6 in two sizes

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

iPhone 6 In 2014, But iPhone 6C Also?

Posted by Michael Nace under iPhone 6 News, iPhone 6 Opinion on Wednesday Jan 1, 2014

iPhone 6C Concept

The iPhone 6 is bound to arrive in 2014. But will Apple even bother to update its C model, and offer an iPhone 6C?

Like you, I scan Apple news each day, looking to see what the tech media and blogosphere is writing about. And like you, most of the time I spend rolling my eyes at crazy, unfounded claims. What caught my eye the other day, however, was mentioning of the iPhone 6C. “iPhone 6C?” I thought to myself. “Why the heck would Apple make another C’ model after the iPhone 5C was lackluster at best?”

And yet, there it was — complete with a shiny, new concept video of what the iPhone 6C could look like (above).

The concept artists can conceptualize all they want. The question remains: are we going to get an iPhone 6C in 2014, along with the iPhone 6?

It didn’t take long for the tech media to latch onto the rumors put forth by Digitimes that Apple is definitively developing a 5-inch iPhone 6 that will be designed to take on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. This is the same report, you’ll recall, that claims that the iPhone supply chain is already ramping up for a May release. Are we to believe that Apple is set to release a new iPhone in May that’s more than an inch larger in size than the current iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C?

Siri To Make a Comeback On iPhone 6, iOS 8

Posted by Michael Nace under iPhone 6 News on Friday Dec 27, 2013

siri iphone 6 and ios 8

Apple doesn’t appear to be ready to abandon further development of Siri. A new report based on Apple patents reveals new features that could likely be a part of iOS 8 and the iPhone 6.

When a new Apple patent posts, the tech media usually scrambles to assume that it is a technology that will imminently appear on the next iPhone, no matter how next-generation the patent may be. Typically, patented technologies take years to develop — if ever. However, a new Apple patent involving Siri and photo tagging may be a realistic, new feature for both iOS 8 and the iPhone 6, which are likely debut together in the fall of 2014.

Tim Cook’s Hype Speech Co-opted As iPhone 6 Release Date Clue

Posted by Michael Nace under iPhone 6 News on Thursday Dec 26, 2013

tim cook may iphone 6 releaseIt appears that the May iPhone 6 release date rumor is going to live longer in the tech news cycle than it deserves to. We reported a few days ago on how Digitmes believes that a phablet-sized iPhone 6 is already in pre-production for a May release date, an unlikely-at-best prediction for a device and company that has become increasingly predictable in its product development since the death of Steve Jobs.

Now, Steve Jobs’ predecessor’s recent hype speech to employees (and investors by extension) is being co-opted as yet another clue of an iPhone 6 release date in May.
