iPhone 6 Release Date in June At WWDC 2014: Rumored Features of Apple’s First Phablet?


According to IBtimes.com.au Chinese Analyst Sun Changxu told Chinese Web site QQ Tech that, “She predicts Apple will initiate the production of iPhone 6 in May so that it could launch the handset in June. “

 In all probability Apple will launch its first phablet in face of iPhone6 at its WWDC.

Speculations are that Apple iPhone 6 will come with a 4.7-inch screen and a 1,136 x 640 pixel display. Analysts also believe that iPhone 6 will come in two versions and once the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is released, Apple will follow it up with a 5.7-inch screen.

 Though none of the features of Apple iPhone 6 have been confirmed by the Cupertino based company, the buzz is that to beat its rival Apple will be increasing the screen size of iPhone 6 to at least 4.7 inch.

 The phone may even house an A8 chip, which can give blisteringly fast speed to the phone. Apple is known to upgrade its processor every year that is why it is expected that the new offering from Apple will have a new chip set.

 It is also rumored that Apple will launch iPhone 6 with iOS 8 operating system and Touch ID finger print sensor. This year Apple fans may also get to see NFC (Near Field Communication) feature in iPhone 6. … Read the rest

WWDC: Apple Not Creating The Stir, New Mac Book Air Hit by Wi-Fi Complaints

Apple recently unveiled the new MacBook Air at WWDC event. Post the launch, dark clouds seem to be floating over the firm as its latest MacBook Air gets hit with complaints regarding the Wi-Fi connectivity issues.

As per some users, the MacBook Air connects to the Wi-Fi for some time before the connection drops. Users then have to reboot their device before connecting again. All these concerns are raised at Apple’s support forum.

As per the complaint filed by one user on the forum, “I have a brand new Macbook Air which is able to connect to the internet for just a minute or two before suddenly it drops out. This is even though the signal still shows at full strength and all my other devices are still able to surf the net as per normal. This device is straight out of the box so no 3rd party applications have been installed. I heard that the Wi-Fi has been upgraded to 802.11 on this machine, could that be an issue? Do I need to return the machine or is there is a software fix for this problem?”

In fact, few users said the issue was resolved by updating the firmware on the Wi-Fi router.

However, taking the complaints seriously, we hope Apple would take the action to resolve the issue as soon.

WWDC Meet : Apple Takes A Steps Ahead… Launches Push to Talk Service for iPhone Users

AT&T has come up with a new push-to-talk service for iPhone users before the WWDC meet. The service is not new for AT&T and Verizon as it had been available on many devices before.

Mike Troiano, vice president for advanced mobility solutions at AT&T business solutions has dedicated the new Enhanced Push-to-Talk (EPTT) service to the engineering, manufacturing, construction, hospitality and government organizations for their constant need of instant communications which was previously designed for AT&T’s speedy 4G LTE networks.

The EPTT is designed for internal corporate use and hence, can be perceived via Wi-Fi networks limiting its usage via cellular networks. All companies arrange for Wi-Fi networks within their workable area and users can very well communicate through the same and not through their cellular network.

IDC analyst John Weber has compared the AT&T’s EPTT service to mobile voice services where Wi-Fi functionality plays an important role in this service.

The latest move by AT&T should encourage more Sprint customers to sign up for EPTT enabled iPhone 5 or it will stick to its Direct Connect offering which is going to retire by the end of June. Sprint finds it difficult to convince user to switch over than to move to Verizon.… Read the rest

Apple WWDC : iOS7, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, iPad Mini, iPad 5… All on The Verge

Apple’s 24th annual developers’ conference to be held  next week will surely see some new versions of iOS and OS X software to test before they are released to customers. It’s a seven month gap for developers as well as customers after the release of iPad Mini in October.

Features of iOS 7 have already been leaked out by 9to5Mac in April and here we present some of the major ones:

More gestures will be included to access information other than one finger swipe and a four finger swipe to pull-up the menu. The report of 9to5Mac adds

that Apple will opt for AirDrop file-sharing service and a build in system level integration for sending media files to Flickr and Vimeo.

Apple and Yahoo together will bring additional contents and services like Yahoo’s sports and news sites to Apple’s devices. OS X 10.9, Apple’s operating system for Macs is also expected to be exposed at WWDC. Here are some major details from 9to5Mac:

One of main feature will be inclusion of tabs to solve the problem of floating windows on the desktop. It will also include Siri and integration of Apple Maps with full screen workable application along with new multi tasking features.

It is expected that the company will update and introduce some new hardware as well in WWDC which are due since long time. MacBook Pro and MacBook Air require up gradation in Display and FaceTime camera. The new version of Thunderbolt display and Apple’s Pandora-like Internet radio service, commonly referred to as iRadio are going to win hearts. Apple is making deals with

Warner Music Group and Universal Music to make music a free ad-supported service for iOS devices.

No new improvement in iCloud is on the agenda for Apple in WWDC meet, though the same needs to integrate storage and data-syncing tools into their applications. New iPhone or iPad is also unlikely to be seen as Apple trusts on developers to work out on new versions of iOS software before it comes to limelight.

Reports by 9to5Mac suggest that there will be no new iPad for WWDC this year as Apple’s Phil Schiller had introduced the iPad Mini in October. However, the casemaker Gumdrop Cases has already prepared a $59.99 protective

cover for the next iPad to matches up with specifications.
