While they may be bitter rivals, Apple can’t help but rely on Samsung for its iPhone parts. Sources say the South Korean company will continue to be the main chip supplier for Apple’s next iPhone, which is likely to make its debut this fall.
According to Asian supply chain sources of UDN, Apple is looking to use a dual-lens design on the next generation of iPhones along with optical zoom. The company is also looking to increase the size of the sensors to allow more light to reach to them, which will ultimately lead to an improved image quality especially in low-light.
Apple finally launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with much bigger screens earlier this year, which was one of the most requested feature.
However, people who loved the size of the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, which came with 4-inch screen were quite disappointed, as they had hoped that Apple would launch a 4-inch iPhone 6 along with the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models.
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.
