Apple’s next MacBook Pro will be like nothing we’ve ever seen

While the bulk of Apple’s laptop updates in recent years have been relatively incremental in nature, Tim Cook and co. have plans to really shake things up in 2016. According to a new research report from reputed analyst Mink Chi-Kuo, Apple later this year is planning to release what may prove to be its biggest MacBook Pro update in history.

Apple iPhone Cheaper Price

Apple wants to sell cheaper iPhones

Apple wants to sell cheaper iPhones

In most countries, the iPhone is the most expensive smartphone you can buy. The iPhone’s price can be quite prohibitive in certain markets where Apple would like to see growth, including China and India, and the company is apparently aware of the problem. Without committing to anything, Apple CEO Tim Cook said during his visit in India that Apple is considering making a cheaper iPhone, but he insisted that the company’s priority is shipping quality products.

iPhone 7 already shaping up to be Apple’s most successful model yet

A new report from Taiwan’s Economic Daily (via Barrons) suggests that the upcoming iPhone 7 will be the monster hit Apple needs to help worried analysts forget about the current lull in iPhone 6s sales. According to the report, Apple has already asked component suppliers to prepare for a production target in the 72 to 78 million range, making it the “highest production target in about two years.”

iPhones will finally get the OLED screens they deserve

iPhones will finally get the OLED screens they deserve

Apple’s iPhones have long used LCD screen technology, which is great, if you like settling for second-best. OLED panels are lighter, look better, and can be curved into more interesting shapes. The best Android phones have been using them for years, and according to a report, iPhones due out in 2017 will be packing OLED panels.

A Bloomberg article cites a sudden spike in demand for screen-manufacturing technology as an indicator of suppliers preparing for a big increase in demand for OLED displays, and it doesn’t take much to connect the dots.

With just four months to go until Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are released, leaks are definitely starting to pick up pace. It makes sense in light of the recent news that iPhone 7 production is now underway — Apple has never been able to keep a lid on things once workers at its manufacturing partners’ plants get their hands on new iPhone parts.

If you haven’t already seen them, be sure to check out all of the big iPhone 7 leaks you missed from this past weekend. Once you’re done there, we have an even bigger treat for all the eager Apple fans out there: In all likelihood, the leaked photo below is our first look at a genuine iPhone 7 in the flesh. More →

iPhone 7 Rumors

Alleged iPhone 7 case photos show a brand new feature no one wants

By on May 23, 2016 at 7:45 AM.

Alleged iPhone 7 case photos show a brand new feature no one wants

The latest iPhone 7 rumor suggests that there may be a few more changes to the device’s final design than initially anticipated. According to a new set of images which purport to show the device’s rear casing, it appears that the iPhone 7 may feature a grand total of four speakers.

Originally published by Nowhereelse.fr, the alleged iPhone 7 photos vary a good deal from previous leaks we’ve seen over the past few months. While some of the antenna lines have been mercifully removed — consistent with previous rumors — you’ll note that the camera module and the LED flash have been reoriented vertically rather than horizontally. The leaked photos also support the persistent rumor that Apple’s next-gen smartphone will ship without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.

But there’s also a curious new feature shown in the photos that suggest they might not accurately reflect the upcoming iPhone’s new design.

Apple Store San Francisco

Apple’s stores have gone from serious to absurd in 15 years

Apple’s stores have gone from serious to absurd in 15 years

Yesterday, Apple unveiled the “future of retail” in its new San Francisco store. The new location is absurdly overhyped: it has “forums” and “groves” rather than aisles or counters, and Apple wants entrepreneurs to cluster in its “board rooms.”

It’s a far cry from the Apple Store that Steve Jobs first introduced back in 2001, and if the founder could see what the face of the store has become, he’d be turning in his grave.

The Galaxy Note 6 and iPhone 7 might be in for a huge RAM upgrade

We often talk about the performance of mobile devices, insisting on real life tests that show how the hottest smartphones in town perform during regular usage. These are, after all, our main computers. And we want them to be fast, reliable, and efficient. The iPhone is still the performance benchmark to beat, with Galaxy flagships fighting for second place. The upcoming generation of smartphones from Apple and Samsung promise to be faster and more efficient than ever. And, ironically, it’s Samsung that’s going to help do that. More →
