Apple iPhone 6 Release Battered And Patched Again, New iOS 7 To Show in August

Though Apple has stopped the production of iPhone 5, but the gadget is still running as the device is still being used by millions of users.

If Apple follows its usual formula, we can expect the New iOS 7 12th of August. By that yardstick, we can expect the iPhone 6 release date to be battered and patched again to september, since Apple developers have said that they expect two more Beta versions before the final release of the new iOS 7. Apple has stated that the official version of the iOS 7 will be available by this fall. Last year iPhone 5 was released along with the iOS 6 – which was released exactly 100 days after it was initially announced. If Apple follows this process again, we can expect the iOS 7 on the 18th of September. Apple normally releases its new iOS software in tandem with a new device, generally the iPhone. What is different this time is that Apple might be releasing its fully fledged iPhone 6 or a cheaper model, the iPhone 5S. [+more]

Apple Vs Google: Samsung Galaxy Nexus May See The Light Of The Day

Galaxy Nexus cleared for sale

In Apple vs. Google battle against the latter’s mobile software, the former got a setback yesterday as a US appeals court reversed a pretrial ban on the sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus smartphone. Currently, Apple and Google are undergoing patent battles in court all over. Google’s Android software powers many of Samsung’s latest and upcoming devices. The ruling was given by the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, who said that Lucy Koh, District Judge abused her discretion.  The court ruled that Apple failed to prove that consumers bought the Samsung device because of the infringing technology. Nexus is an old device in Samsung’s lineup of smartphones and therefore, the ruling is not expected to have any impact on the smartphone market. However, the court’s reasoning for this decision could make it difficult for rival companies suing each other over patents, pull down competitors’ products from the market. On [+more]

Google’s Schmidt Speaks on Apple and Google Maps

    At a conference held in Tokyo recently, Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt said that they are not doing anything about providing Google Maps for Apple’s iPhone after the latter chose a much-criticized application developed on their own. It is being said that the search giant is still investing in research and development. However, Schmidt said that any decision on whether Google Maps would be accepted as in the App Store would have to be made by the phone maker. With the launch of the iPhone 5, Google’s popular map bowed out of Apple’s kitty. Earlier this month, Apple launched its own map for iOS 6 with the iPhone 5. In an interview, Google Earth and Google Maps nive-president Brian McClendon said that “In 2008, we were in a situation where we were licensing third-party data and organizing it with search as best we could, but we weren’t able [+more]
