Every year Apple upgrades its chip and this year also it is expected that Apple will launch its Apple devices with an A8 chip. As DigiTimes further noted, “Apple’s A8 chip will be a package-on-package (PoP) SoC solution comprising processors and mobile DRAM in a single package.”
If the reports by DigiTimes deems true than there will be a considerable reduction in iPhone 6 size and weight, which will make the phone feather weight and much easy to maneuver.

The higher revenue Q1 of iPad and iPhone maker is being attributed to iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C release.

For long time it has been speculated that Apple iPhone 6 will come with a sapphire screen. However, according to BGR.com, in the course of his interview Tim Cook mentioned that by no means investing in sapphire glass company should be confused with Apple iPhone 6.
It has also been predicted by various analysts around the world that iPhone 6 is touted to come in two versions, one in normal 4+inch screen and other in phablet 5+inch size.
Though Apple’s CEO did not comment on possibility of sapphire screen feature on iPhone6 and according to IBTimes.com.au report an Apple insider has revealed that iPhone 6 prototype features sapphire glass and the company is still testing the prototype.
“Apple manufacturing partner Foxconn is said to have successfully assembled at least 100 prototype next-generation iPhone units with sapphire-covered displays,” the website reported.
Apparently, the insider even told BGR.com that iPhone 6 is now ready for mass production.
Let us know what do you think of Apple iPhone 6 release, will it or won’t it happen tin May –June of 2014?
According to Ibtimes.com.au, reports of 9to5 mac says, “The iPhone maker shipped out 55.3 million iPhones in the last three months of 2013. The numbers, represent the best quarterly sales ever for the tech giant since the first iPhone model was introduced in 2007, added the same story.”
With the befitting success of iPhone 5S, Apple may rush the release of its first phablet. It is being predicted Apple will take plunge in big screen trend with iPhone 6.
A report from Unwired View says that Apple will be bringing the phone in May 2014. As quoted by Ibtimes.com.au a source even told the website, “Two iPhone 6 models will come out this year and both will sport phablet-size display panels. The first one, with a 4.7-inch screen, is set for unveiling in late Q2 2014 so the target issuance would be between May and June.”
This year also Apple released two version of iPhone 5, 5S and 5C and based on this the prediction of two iPhone 6’s may come true.
If iPhone 6 want to take over the android phone market, then it may to sport a screen size akin to a phablet. Apple’s last offerings including Apple iPhone 5S and iPhone 5 both had a 4-inch screen size. Both the phones didn’t create much stir in the market as Samsung and other Android player captured the market with their bigger screen sized phones.
Looking at the recent success of Samsung Galaxy Note series and Galaxy S4, the trend for bigger screen has set in and it will be more logical for Apple to go with the wind.
According to GottaBeMobile.com, Apple wants to capture the Chinese market and to do so it will have to make major changes and improvement in the screen size.
“As Apple goes global and consumers across the world experience the benefits of larger screens there is more pressure for an iPhone 6 with a bigger screen,” revealed the report by Gotta Be Mobile.com
Even Apple CEO Tim Cook hinted in his latest interview with Bloomberg that Apple is working some spectacular things.
“We have great things we are working on but we want to keep them secret. That way you will be so much happier when you see it,” Bloomberg reported the Apple chief as saying.
Do you think Tim is talking about Apple’s first phablet, iPhone 6 here?
As reported by BGR, “Apple iPhone 6 may come with 8MP camera with OIS features.”
Apple introduced the same range camera in iPhone 4S. However, this time the tech giant will go for major improvements in optical image stabilization (OIS) and auto-focus (AF) capabilities of the camera.
According to unwired view Apple will again beat the tough competition it faces from its Android contemporaries as the recent patent filed by the Cupertino based company points at the immense improvements in Apple iPhone 6 capabilities.
“Miniature cameras are becoming increasingly common in mobile electronic devices such as smartphones. There is a constant drive to improve performance of such cameras, while still maintaining the same envelope,” Unwired reported the Apple patent.
It seems Apple is really feeling the heat from the slew of Android phones in the market and it is highly possible that as opposed to Apple iPhone 5S and 5, this time Apple will launch a strong competitor in Apple iPhone 6.

The tech industry is getting more exciting with every passing year as new technological inventions enable users to do various stuff that were once thought to be impossible.
The year 2013 witnessed how smartphones and tables have gnawed away at the dwindling PC market, even as thinner and lighter products that do not compromise with the immense power of PCs foraying into the market and emerging as the new benchmark in the industry. Innovative AV standards like 4K has become quite popular and on the other hand, cloud storage is gradually phasing out its physical contemporary as we are moving towards a future that will be dominated by the digital age.
As 2013 draws to a close and we are all set to welcome 2014, there some exciting and interesting developments lined up in the technology industry. The year 2013 saw large-screen sleek Android phones like Samsung Galaxy Note and Sony Xperia Z 2 Ultra, prove one definite thing that there is a huge market for such devices.
far, Apple has resisted taking its iconic iPhone range into the fast-emerging phablet space. However, the smartphone segment has never demonstrated or justified the concept of one size fits all. There are several indications that Apple’s Tim Cook might be seriously thinking of embracing the new trend of big screen devices.
What poses as a severe threat to iOS range from Apple is the immensely popular Galaxy series from Samsung. The build quality of Galaxy series devices is probably the only department where they lag behind from Apple. So far, the South Korean handset maker has made its flagship phones in feeble polycarbonate. However, if reports are anything to go by, then this is set for a major overhaul in the year 2014.
The Windows Phone OS has come of age and now is a strong contender to Android and Apple iOS.

But the Cupertino organisation is all set to launch the iPhone 6 with a screen of 4.8 inches which is quite larger and broader than the iPhone 5s. it will be just 2 inch smaller than its contemporary S4.
The device boasts of sensational specs. it is said to come with a screen which is quite strong with the ability to chip concrete without even getting one scratch. It is the sapphire glass which surpasses the Gorilla Glass material. The new specs include NFC and eye scanning technique.
The enhanced A7 chip format will come in the iPhone 6. The A7 processor has been seen in iPad Air and iPhone 5s. The A7x chip comes with quad core processor and advanced quad core graphics. The latest patent of Apple includes voice based image tagging and searching that permits the people to tag and sort it out with voice command.
The user just have to tell his iPhone, “its me at the beach” and he tag pictures accordingly. You can also tag pictures and locations based on time. The device will also feature an enhanced Siri which can offer accurate answers to queries.
