The keynote events have become increasingly predictive since the iPhone 4 debacle. iPhone 6 / iPhone Air is expected to be announced at a special keynote event on September 9th. From the design to tech specs the rumour mill seems to have access to all the details with quite convincing proofs to prove their credibility.

If the recent part leaks of the upcoming iPhone 6 weren’t enough a new HD video published by Russia-based YouTuber Rozetked, shows the parts of alleged new iPhone completely assembled. The assembled parts are claimed to be of iPhone Air / iPhone 6 which is rumoured to be 4.7 inch in size. This year Apple is expected to release two new iPhones with 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch screens sizes.

According to the reports published by various news outlets, iPhone 6 will feature sapphire crystal display, NFC chip, improved camera sensors, longer battery life and new sensors. There has been a lot of debate concerning the cost of the new iPhones as the sapphire crystal displays are costly and very hard to produce. It is possible that 4.7 inch screen size may be available at existing price points however a 5.5 inch screen iPhone could be priced $100 more.

new iPhone 6 Apple will be holding the iPhone event at  Flint Center for the Performing Arts which is much bigger than the venues Apple typically selects for new product announcements. It is interesting to note that the company is also building a three-storey structure at the event venue. There have been a few reports about Apple introducing a new wearable product during the event, it is unclear if the new structure is being built to showcase some specific functionality of the wearable product. If rumours are to be believed then the new iWatch(?) will only be demoed at the event, its availability is scheduled for early next year. Steve Jobs introduced the original Macintosh at the same venue almost 30 years ago.

Even though there have been many part leaks and we may have already seen the iPhone 6 which will be announced in 6 days from now it’s possible that a few surprise await us. Are you excited about the event? What are your expectations from the event? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

iPhone 5S keynote event is now live at the Town Hall Apple Campus. We’re expecting Apple to announce all-new iPhone 5S and a low cost iPhone 5C. The company will also share release date of iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks.

Apple has in the past streamed live video stream of the WWDC keynote event, however this year the company has not shared a live stream of the iPhone event. Last year Apple TV was updated with “Apple Events” channel for the streaming. Even though a live stream is not available many tech bloggers will be at the iPhone event to cover the event. Links to live coverage of the iPhone 5S keynote event can be found here: EngadgetArs TechnicaThe VergeMacworldAllThingsDCNETSlashGear.

We will be posting tech specs, release date, photos, videos, pre-order dates and everything you need to know from today’s event as it concludes later this morning. According to various rumors and reports iPhone 5S will feature Touch ID sensor (fingerprint), faster A7 processor, dual-led flashlight and updated camera software.

Apple will also announce iPhone 5C, a low cost iPhone to make the smartphone more affordable for everyone. This could lead to significant increase in market share for Apple in a market where Android dominates with mid-priced smartphones.

iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks golden master seeds could be released today to the developers and could be made available to general public on September 17th just before the release of iPhone 5S.

]]> 4 iOS 7 Beta 6 Releasing Next Week As Last Beta Update? Thu, 15 Aug 2013 19:51:51 +0000 Read More]]> iPhone 5 iOS 7

According to a new report Apple will be releasing iOS 7 beta 6 in the coming week which will reportedly be the last beta update before the gold master (GM) seed.

BGR published a report today claiming that sources familiar with Apple’s plan for iOS 7 release date believe that iOS 7 GM seed will be made available to carriers and Apple partners on September 5th. Developers will get the GM build on September 10th which is the rumored date for Apple’s iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C keynote event.

After Apple and its partners are comfortable with the gold master build, the company will release it to developers on September 10th, the day of the company’s iPhone event where we should see the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C make their first appearances — and they will of course be the first devices to run iOS 7 out of the box.

Public release of the iOS 7 could be a week prior to the release of the new hardware and the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C would sell with iOS 7 pre-installed. Even in the 5th beta of iOS 7 the software is quite stable unlike previous beta versions where the phone would crash or restart.

Most applications we use on a daily basis work just fine with iOS 7 however, developers would need to rush iOS 7 updates for their apps since some features in photography apps like sharing or exporting to camera album don’t always work.

Apple has been long rumored to be working on a low-cost iPhone to compete in the mid-priced segment of the smartphone market. There have been various reports that suggest that iPhone 5C will feature a plastic body and will come is different colors.

Now, SonnyDickson has posted a high resolution video of yellow color back housing of “iPhone 5C”. The increasing number of parts leaks and images of the purported new hardware could suggest that the low-cost iPhone is indeed in the works.

We recently highlighted a report that predicts Apple’s upcoming iPhone event will be held on September 10th. The company is expected to unveil the next-gen iPhone 5S. The new iPhone could feature fingerprint sensor, new camera, dual-led flash and a faster processor.

Apple has always offered the previous gen iPhone at a low cost with the regular carrier contracts. However, the carrier unlocked iPhones price is still quite high. New low-cost iPhone 5C would offer a great opportunity to offer the same iOS ecosystem to more customers at a lower price point even when the phone is bought without a contract.

A lower price point would expose Apple to larger adoption in Asian countries too which has become an important strategy for Apple’s future expansion plans. Apple’s popular integration of hardware and software at a low cost could boost the sales volumes and thus expose new customers to Apple’s ecosystem.

]]> 3 ‘N94′ iPhone 5 / 4S Appears in Apple’s Inventory Database Thu, 29 Sep 2011 21:15:50 +0000 Read More]]> iPhone 4S

With Apple’s “Let’s talk iPhone” media event just around the corner, new details of the potential iPhone 5 / 4S are being revealed. An image of an N94 iPhone 4S appeared in Apple’s inventory database, clearly showing a model number, as well as the words, “iPhone 4S, White, 16GB”.

The name “4S” has been in use to describe a potential fifth generation iPhone since May 2011 and was used intermittently with iPhone 5 as well.

Rumors have also suggested that N94 was under a model number of MD234 while the lower end iPhone 4S showed a model number of MD239. 9to5Mac’s report suggested that IMEI and MEID numbers may suggest that the iPhone 4S may be a World Mode phone, capable of operating on GSM networks. The report also mentioned that the iPod touch might be getting a slight update and a lower price point, with the current 8GB model dropping to $199 from its current $229 price point as well as the addition of white models, improved ambient light sensors, and oleophobic coatings for the displays.

With each year, the iPod touch moves up a little closer to resemble the iPhone, but is slightly lower end than the popular smartphone. Apple is expected to unveil a major update to the iPhone, now being called the iPhone 4S.

If the photos are indeed genuine, then it can be assumed that Apple is manufacturing the devices at a rapid rate and may be releasing the week following the announcement. Apple’s “Let’s talk iPhone” event is to be held on October 4th at 10AM PST (1PM EST).

Will you buy the iPhone 4S? Do you think this photo is genuine?
