Rumors regarding the use of sapphire glass for the displays in the iPhone 6 lineup were constant, furious and stubborn. Even as analysts went back and forth on its expected usage, it refused to die. Now, a new analyst report suggests Apple was actually pretty close to including it after all.
It is widely believed that Apple’s media event this afternoon will be heavily focused on health and fitness as it relates to both the iPhone 6 and the Cupertino-based company’s first wearable device. To back these health initiatives, a new report claims that Minnesota-based medical group Mayo Clinic will play a big role during the Apple keynote.
The well-respected John Gruber of Daring Fireball, an Apple pundit that has established a respectable track record over the past decade and beyond, has shared some predictions ahead of the Cupertino-based company’s highly-anticipated media event at 10:00 AM Pacific. We’ve summarized his opinions about what to expect ahead.
With less than one day remaining until Apple is expected to take the wraps off the highly-anticipated iPhone 6, coinciding with the announcement of the so-called “iWatch,” China Mobile has added fuel to the fire by sharing a list of unconfirmed specifications for the smartphone. It is unknown if these specifications are sourced directly from Apple, which would seem unlikely, or if they are simply based off rumors that have circulated in recent months.
Apple is widely expected to launch iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen to take on Android-based smartphones.
However, as we had discussed in our iPhone 6 rumor roundup, it wasn’t clear if the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will behave like a bigger iPhone, or like a smaller iPad.
