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.
According to The Wall Street Journal, which has a respectable track record at reporting on Apple’s upcoming product plans, Apple will include near field communication, or NFC, in the iPhone 6 and its upcoming smartwatch, two products that are expected to be unveiled side-by-side at the company’s September 9th media event next week.
