Apple seems like a company divided these days. While the technology juggernaut's Mac lineup continually stagnates between long-overdue updates, Cupertino's iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch families march ahead to a yearly cadence of updated designs, new features, and enhanced performance. It's almost like Apple is really two different companies—one that produces the latest in personal electronics, and another that takes long naps as the PC market passes it by. At any rate, older iPhone designs also stick around, to serve additional market segments. Last September's iPhone 11 release merely relegated older devices to lower price points, rather than outright retire them like many Android makers... Read more...
Yesterday, Apple announced a refreshed MacBook Air with double the storage and faster Intel Ice Lake processors along with a new iPad Pro family with dual rear cameras and LiDAR scanning support. If a new rumor is accurate, we could soon be seeing an official announcement for the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus entry-level smartphones. This news comes from Jon Prosser (via Twitter), who has a pretty good track record when it comes to Apple rumors. He posted a simple tweet which stated, “iPhone 9 has just entered mass production”. If that is indeed the case, Apple is currently making sure that it has ample supply of the new phones available for the inevitable launch.... Read more...
Details have surfaced about the rumored iPhone 9 (or iPhone SE 2 depending on who you talk to) that indicates Apple is working on a Plus version of the smartphone. The rumored Plus version would bring a larger screen to the mix, giving people more space than what has been reported in the supply chain for the smaller device.  Code tidbits from iOS 14 suggest that the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus will replace the iPhone 8 line, which includes a 4.7 and a 5.5-inch version. The code suggests that both devices will run the Apple A13 Bionic chip, which is the same processor used in the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro. Future high-end iPhone models are rumored to use an all-new 5nm A14 SoC. Such... Read more...
One rumor that absolutely refuses to die is the pending launch of a successor to the original iPhone SE (Special Edition), which came out in 2016 and was discontinued a year later. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reckons it will finally see the light of day in early 2020, and he has some interesting predictions about the hardware makeup of the unannounced handset. His time frame for the iPhone SE 2 matches a report from Nikkei earlier this month—as the story went, Apple hopes a lower cost iPhone model will scoop up some market share in China, where Huawei and other companies are doing well. The report said Apple had not settled on a name, but was viewing it internally as a successor to the iPhone... Read more...
It looks as though we won't have to wait until the fall for the first crop of 2018 iPhones from Apple to appear. The successor to the iPhone SE, which is long overdue, is said to launch by June of this year, and perhaps as early as May. We've heard plenty of rumors about the so-called iPhone SE 2 over the past year, and the latest suggests that the smartphone will gain a glass back, which would put it in on even footing with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. This glass back will allow the iPhone SE 2 to support wireless charging, which Apple finally embraced in 2017 for its smartphones (the Apple Watch was the first Apple device to support wireless recharging). Previous rumors claimed that the iPhone... Read more...
Chatter is starting to ramp up surrounding an update to Apple's iPhone SE entry-level smartphone. Apple first introduced the iPhone SE in early 2016, and it was little more than an iPhone 5s smartphone that was modernized with an iPhone 6s-class A9 processor, Apple Pay support and improved cameras. For people that were disappointed with Apple’s move to larger 4.7- and 5.5-inch form-factors (at the time), the 4-inch iPhone SE represented a modern, lithe smartphone for those people that didn't want to pay flagship prices. Earlier this year, Apple shuffled the storage SKUs a bit, but the smartphone remains largely the same as when it was introduced over a year. That will all change early next... Read more...
