This is what apps could look like on the iPhone 6′s bigger display

While Apple is yet to reveal details about its bigger iPhone plans, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo – who has a good track record reporting on Apple unreleased products – last week revealed many details about a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 including its screen resolution. According to him, the bigger iPhone will have a strange 1334 x 750 Retina display with a pixel density of 326 pixel per inch density. In new reports, MacRumors and a The Verge forums user explained why that resolution makes sense, showing how the home screen and apps could look like on such a display. More →

Hackers make Siri vastly more useful by modifying it to control Nest, Spotify

Engadget draws our attention to GoogolPlex, a new hack for Siri developed by a quartet of freshmen at the University of Pennsylvania that lets you use Apple’s voice-enabled personal assistant to adjust the temperature on your Nest thermostat or to shuffle through your Spotify playlist.

Apple is getting ready to release iOS 7.1.1 to fix multiple bugs

Have you noticed some annoying bugs that cropped up after you installed iOS 7.1 onto your smartphone or tablet? Don’t worry, because apparently Apple has as well. 9to5Mac notices that several visits to its website from around Apple’s campus in Cupertino, Calif. have come from devices running on iOS 7.1.1, which 9to5Mac says is a new update to iOS 7.1 that Apple is testing out to address multiple bugs in iOS 7.1. 9to5Mac also says that there has been a noticeable uptick in iOS 7.1.1 visits in recent days, which likely means the bug fix update will come over-the-air to iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches in the near future.”

New iPhone 6 case photos reaffirm big redesign, show relocated power button

Apple appears to take the most aggressive stance when it comes to secrecy and keeping information surrounding its unreleased products out of the public’s eye. Needless to say, it’s all for naught when your production partners are gigantic Eastern manufacturing giants with tens or even hundreds of thousands of workers. As such, Apple products tend to leak even more than devices made by rival companies, especially since the interest level in Apple products is always so high. And now, the leaks involving Apple’s iPhone 6 have kicked into high gear. More →

Steve Jobs’ death ignited Samsung’s anti-iPhone marketing fire

New evidence from the second U.S. Apple vs Samsung patent lawsuit has revealed that Samsung was somewhat afraid of starting a clear, full-fledged anti-iPhone marketing campaign in 2011 – a move which actually proved to be detrimental to Samsung’s success in the mobile business. However, the death of Steve Jobs provided Samsung the “best opportunity to attack iPhone,” according to a highly confidential email exchange between Samsung execs presented as evidence in the trial and obtained by AppleInsider.

New Apple tech doesn’t need GPS to determine your location

Apple was awarded a patent on Tuesday for a technology that should allow for much more accurate indoor location detection and mapping, even in the absence of GPS. The new patent, which was picked up by Apple Insider, uses a combination of Wi-Fi access points, location databases and other data to determine proximity to what the patent called “presence areas.” It then analyzes various data such as Wi-Fi signal strength and building architecture to determine a more precise location.

Leaked photo shows iPhone 6 front panel side-by-side with iPhone 5

Apple cannot be happy with the multitude of iPhone 6 leaks we’ve seen over just the past week. Via 9to5Mac, Czech website LetemSvetemApplem.eu has snagged a new picture from Chinese social networking site Weibo that purportedly shows the front panel of the iPhone 6 side-by-side with the iPhone 5. Interestingly, the display portion of the iPhone 6 front panel is only a little bit smaller than the entire iPhone 5, which suggests that we’re looking at the 4.7-inch version of the yet-to-be-released device.
