All New iPhone 7 Leaked 2015

The phone is only 8% larger than the existing iPhone 5S, this increase is to accommodate the larger screen. Some extra space could be potentially utilised by reducing the width of the side bezels and by also slimming down the top and bottom of the phone frame too. The depth of the iPhone Air is 7mm, coming in 0.6mm smaller than it’s predecessor. This modest reduction in the device depth and larger increase in the width and height could help create a bigger space for the battery and other components.


The Screen

The next iPhone is widely expected to sport a larger, higher resolution screen. This is an area of great contention as changing the resolution can cause major problems for developers to update their apps efficiently. I decided that 4.7″ was an ideal size, supporting a resolution of 1920×1080, that’s 468ppi (up from 326ppi in the iPhone 5S).

Sapphire Crystal display

The use of sapphire crystal as opposed to Corning Gorilla Glass has been widely rumoured in the past 6 months. The benefits of using Sapphire Crystal come mainly in the form of added strength/durability and added scratch/fracture resistance. It is not currently known whether the costs of producing the new display could be comparable to existing materials but it’s been reported that Apple has been investing heavily in the production of this material, therefore it is not unreasonable to suggest it may be for use in the next generation iPhone.

Other features

The camera sensor will be updated, perhaps to a 10-megapixel sensor and an increased aperture of f/1.8. Other features expected are a faster and more efficient A8 chip.

iPhone 6S Release date Price Specs and Features

Following Apple’s history with smartphones, the next iPhone will be an ‘S’ model. However, there’s always the possibility it will put an end to this tradition so we may be in store for the iPhone 7 this year – you just never know. In fact, reports suggest that the new iPhone is going to be so different from the current models that Apple will indeed skip to the iPhone 7. This is what KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks who has a proven track record of predicting Apple launches correctly.

iPhone-6S-iPhone 6C

For the last two launches, Apple has introduced two new iPhones. We currently have the iPhone 6 and the larger iPhone 6 Plus and previously Apple launched the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Will we get two models again this year? We think so but rumours are thin on the ground on the subject at the moment but it’s early days so stay tuned as we’ll be updating this article as new information becomes available.

iPhone 6s release date: When is the iPhone 6s coming out?

These days it relatively easy to predict when a new generation of a flagship smartphone will arrive. Most manufacturers announce a new model annually while some go for every six months.

Apple is one of the former and if we look at previous launches, it’s highly likely that the iPhone 6S will be announced in September and will go on sale a week or two afterwards. Of course, if the launch event is towards the end of the month, the iPhone 6S release date could be early October. Bear in mind that if there are two new iPhones announced this year, they may not go on sale on the same day.

iPhone 6S: Design and specs

With an ‘S’ model iPhone, most things tend to stay the same in terms of design and specs. Usually there are a few tweaks here and there but Apple will save major changes for the next full model number – ie the iPhone 7.

It seems likely then that the iPhone 6S will look the same as the current iPhone 6. It will use the same chassis and come in the same colour options. The weight might change though due to different components inside or a new sapphire glass.

An S model sticks with the same screen size so we’re probably looking at 4.7in and if there is an iPhone 6S Plus then it should remain at 5.5in. Resolutions are also likely to stay the same although one rumour suggests the new iPhone will have a 5in display with a 400ppi and what about the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge rivalling concept below by Michael Shanks?

So what will change?

If the design of the iPhone 6S remains the same, then Apple will provide upgrades in the form of new hardware. There are various rumours floating around, the most obvious of which, is of a new processor. The iPhone 6S will come with an A9 chip and could also get an upgrade in the RAM department to 2 GB.

The Touch ID fingerprint scanner could be integrated into the display, according to one rumour, rather than sitting in the home button. We thought the cameras would almost certainly be upgraded, although we’re not sure a rumoured 21Mp rear camera is probable and analysts are now saying Apple will stick with 8Mp for the iPhone 6S.

More likely is a reversibly USB connector. We already have the Lightning connector which can be plugged in either way round so we’d put money on Apple doing it at the other end of the cable, too. Also highly possible, practically a given, is that the iPhone 6S will come pre-loaded with iOS 9 which will probably be detailed at Apple’s WWDC which normally takes place in June.

There’s also a rumour suggesting that Apple may decide to use the same series 7000 aluminium that they use for the Apple Watch with the iPhone 6S. The Series 7000 aluminium is 60% stronger than standard aluminium, but keeps its lightweight form factor making it a great candidate for the iPhone 6S.

There are also reports from the WSJ that the iPhone 6S (possibly only the 6S Plus according to conflicting rumours) will support Force Touch. Currently built into the Apple Watch and the new 12inch MacBook, Force Touch gives the device pressure sensitivity, allowing them to distinguish between a light tap and a hard press, enabling opportunities for new gestures. The source is apparently an Apple supplier, so it’s best to take this with a pinch of salt – Apple often tests technologies using suppliers that never make it into the final product, so this may also be the case with Force Touch.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s Are BOTH Coming In 2015

Apple’s set quite a competitive stage for 2015, with the launch of is radically altered iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in September 2014 the company has fully embraced larger displays, NFC, and a host of other features that have set the bar for what consumers will now expect from high-end devices; mobile payment, fingerprint scan security, and more. Mobile buyers are lapping it up too, both devices have been highly praised in reviews and are flying off shelves around the world. Apple’s major design overhaul is kicking ass and taking names in terms of sales, with the company reporting over 70 million units sold since launch. There is still plenty of interest in rival devices, however, with Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge (as well as the freshly leaked LG G4!) receiving plenty of attention. Some analysts predict Samsung will soon catch up in terms of sales.


So with the next 12 months secure for Apple, we turn to what’s next in store for the biggest smartphone maker in the world. And of course, we already know, it’ll be up to its usual tricks in September 2015. The company has established a habit of launching one or two handsets every year, and they’re always planned well in advance, so we knew at least an iPhone 6S was coming and it’s not too surprising the rumours have started already –– truth be told, if anything they’re a little late, as we were already hearing about the iPhone 6 before the iPhone 5S even launched. What’s interesting, however, is we’re also hearing talk of an iPhone 7.

As it stands at present there are two schools of thought about Apple’s plans for its iPhone line in 2015: on the one hand there’s the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus and this would fit in with the company’s previous tick-tock style upgrade process, whereby BIG changes are saved for tick-cycles and smaller, incremental tweaks for tock-cycles. However, there are plenty of rumours about Apple ditching this approach entirely and moving straight to the iPhone 7. And the reason is pretty much what you’d expect: Apple is worried people are getting wise to its ways and is concerned too many users would wait for the iPhone 7 should the 6s launch in 2015, a potential scenario that could hurt growth for the year.

And this is NOT something Apple will want. Not after the successes of 2015.

Apple is now the biggest selling handset maker in China, surpassing local firm Xiaomi, according to market researcher Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. Apple’s iPhone 6 was the biggest selling handset in China for the first three months of 2015. Previously, Apple has struggled to gain traction in the Chinese market –– also known as the biggest phone market on the planet –– but the advent of its new iPhone 6 handsets appears to have helped the company re-establish itself in the region.

“There has been a strong appetite for Apple’s products in urban China seen since the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and this has continued into Chinese New Year,” Kantar Worldpanel research chief Carolina Milanesi said in a statement. “China Mobile’s subscribers accounted for 59 percent of the 27.6 percent volume share recorded by iOS in the latest period.”

But there does appear to be a third avenue also, as according to reports Apple may, for the first time, have plans to release three phones at once come September 2015. It would appear there is also an iPhone 6c in the works, bringing the less-pricey (though still expensive compared to other “budget” offerings), plastic-backed, but nonetheless competetive traits of the iPhone 5c bang-up-to-date in a new model. If rumours prove true, this version will include some of Apple’s new feature wizardry, such as NFC, TouchID and Apple Pay compatibility, meaning more people can get access to Apple’s payment services.

Aside from this, there’s already plenty of information about what we can expect from Apple’s next-generation iPhones. So, without further ado, let’s have a look at what the rumour mill says Apple has in store for us in 2015, shall we?

iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 Release Date: Staggered Launch Rumoured (Take With Pinch of Salt)
Reports suggest Apple is looking at halving its smartphone update cycle in 2015, meaning we could see two iPhone launches in a single year. It’s claimed the company is potentially prepping the release of one handset –– the iPhone 6s –– alongside the Apple Watch during the first half of 2015 and then another –– the iPhone 7 –– in the iPhone’s usual late-Q3 launch spot; around September.

Earlier reports have claimed Apple is looking to discontinue the iPhone 5c and iPhone 4s, with production of the handsets winding down in the second half of 2015. Apple has yet to comment on the rumour –– it never does –– and we, for one, will certainly be sad to see the back of the iPhone 5c.

“The new schedule is expected to stagger the releases of two devices in 2015 to capitalise on sales,” reports The Mail Online. “Apple could release the iPhone 6S to people who want to upgrade to a slightly cheaper model, before announcing its flagship iPhone 7 in the autumn.”

There’s been little other evidence to back up the claims, however, and while the idea if Apple staggering its handset releases does kind of make sense –– you have two distinct sales periods instead of one –– it could just be hearsay, yet another rumour in the on-going “this is what the next iPhone will be like-saga”. Still, it is certainly a very interesting turn of events: would staggering the release of handsets mean more sales?

“Rumours abound that Apple is preparing to ditch this pattern –– iPhone X to iPhone Xs –– and skip straight to the iPhone 7. The main reason cited for this change in strategy is that the “S” range is thought to be more down-market than the model that preceded it, and Apple is very much focused on being a premium product company,” reports PC Pro. “We’re not sure about this rationale just yet, however some of the rumours around major redesigns of the next handsets to be released could point to the launch of a newly numbered set of phones. It’s probably about time too.”

“KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo,” reports Mac Rumors, “who has a respectable track record at reporting on Apple’s upcoming plans, issued a note to investors on Thursday that claims the next-generation iPhone will have a FPC-made capacitive Force Touch sensor under the backlight, laminated with metal shielding. Kuo adds that the change may be significant enough for Apple to call its next iPhone the “iPhone 7″ instead of the so-called iPhone 6s.”

Check out Kuo’s note below:

“We believe that iPhone’s Force Touch sensor doesn’t directly detect the pressure applied by fingers. Instead, it monitors the contact area on which the finger touches the screen to decide how big the pressure is.

There are two possible structural designs for Force Touch from a technology viewpoint. The Force Touch sensor can either be placed between the cover lens and the In-cell touch panel or under the In-cell touch panel’s backlight. In the first position, the technological challenge lies with how to produce the transparent Force Touch sensor; in the second position, the challenge is how to reduce signal interference from in-cell touch panel. Our understanding of the technology is that producing a transparent Force Touch sensor is more difficult, so the chances are the new iPhone this year will opt for the second position.”

According to reports out of China (Weibo and GizmoChina) Apple is gearing up to begin mass production of the iPhone 6s in June 2015 with the goal of having 230 million units ready to ship after its usual launch in September. The reports also reiterate previous rumours that Samsung will produce the new A9 chipset for Apple on its 14 nanometre FinFET manufacturing process, and that the new model will pack 2GB of RAM alongside pressure-sensitive touch control capabilites.

Apple might just be adding more colour options this year, too. According to Mac Rumours –– citing a report from The Wall Street Journal –– suggest “that, in addition to Silver, Gold and Space Grey, you’ll also be able to buy a new Pink model. It’s not going to be bright pink like the iPhone 5C, but rather a rose gold colour like the colour of one of the Apple Watch Editions. We can imagine the new colour being rather popular.”

As for the fate of the iPhone 7, it would appear –– at least if the WSJ and GizmoChina are to be believed –– that Apple will indeed stick to its 6s-then-7-update cycle, meaning those looking for the iPhone 7 had better get saving their pennies for its release inside 2016. This could change, granted, but for now it seems as if Apple is sticking to its tick-tock update schedule for iPhone. And who can blame them? It’s been working brilliantly for several years now.

WWDC 2015 Set For June 8
Apple has officially announced the date of its annual WWDC event, which this year will be taking place on June 8 at the Moscone Centre in San Franciso, California. As usual, Apple will be using the event to reveal and showcase some of its plans for iOS 9 for its mobiles and tablets and the next iteration of OS X for Macs. Last year the company showed off a lot of crossover between the two platforms and this looks set to continue. We also expect to see more about connected smart devices, appliances and vehicles; the internet of things, as it’s understood Apple has big plans here.

Apple is also believed to be gearing up to reveal more about its plans for a Music service, following its acquisition of Beats Audio. This will likely form a focal point of the next iPhone along with otherkey features from iOs 9, and we’re also hoping to hear about more integration and features from the Apple Watch, and possibly details of a rollout of Apple Pay outside the US.


An iPhone 6c Too?
Well this is unexpected. For several months now we’ve been seeing a trickle of information about the iPhone 6S and iPhone 7, expected for launch towards the end of 2015, however, it now seems Apple may have a third handset in development –– a successor to the plastic iPhone 5c!

More recently, reports from the oft-unreliable DigiTimes are now claiming Apple will release three handsets in 2015 in the form of the iPhone 6s, the iPhone 6s Plus and –– this is where it gets interesting –– the iPhone 6c, which is rumoured to be a cheaper option with a 4in display aimed at picking up where the original iPhone 5c left off.

“Industry sources are reportedly referring to Apple’s supposed next-generation 4-inch device as the iPhone 6C,” says Apple Insider, “a take on the low-end, polycarbonate-bodied iPhone 5c that debuted in 2013. As an entry-level product, the 6C is rumoured to run on current generation A8 system-on-chip silicon, while the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones will run an unannounced A9 chip.”

This is kind of understandable, though, as the iPhone 5c did prove very popular with a lot of users; you see the colourful handsets everywhere when walking around London. A lot this boils down to people liking the colour options, as it gives their iPhone something of an individual look –– you don’t see that many blue ones for instance, although pink and white seem to be very popular.

Following the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the iPhone 5c was not axed, as many presumed it would be, but was instead relegated to a replacement for the iPhone 5 as the base model in Apple’s catalogue.

According to the rumour mill (DigiTimes), Apple is planning a 4in display size for its next plastic fantastic iPhone, together with NFC and TouchID, meaning it is getting the functionality of its more premium brethren.

“Industry sources are reportedly referring to Apple’s supposed next-generation 4-inch device as the iPhone 6C,” says Apple Insider, “a take on the low-end, polycarbonate-bodied iPhone 5c that debuted in 2013. As an entry-level product, the 6C is rumoured to run on current generation A8 system-on-chip silicon, while the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones will run an unannounced A9 chip.”

And now Future Supplier, a source that’s been vocal about iPhone details in the past, has leaked a photo of the alleged iPhone 6c’s plastic back panel in a familiar red/pink we saw on the 5c. The source notes that the panel has an oval cut-out for the camera sensor similar to the iPhone 5S (as opposed to the 5C’s round hole). It also has a pair of drilled speaker grilles in the bottom edge, where the iPhone 5C only has one grille.

iPhone 7 Display
Apple’s next iPhone will adopt a new type of display technology called Force Touch. Apple developed this display technology for its Apple Watch but is said to be keen on bringing it to future iPhones, starting with 2015’s models. Apple’s new MacBook uses the technology in its touchpad and can, according to Apple, differentiate between a light, soft and heavy touch – different levels of pressure can be assigned to different functions, so essentially this gives more options than the conventional tap and long press options. The advent of this type of technology inside the iPhone could completely change the way millions of people interact with the device on a daily basis.

According to information from Economic Daily News (Taiwan), Apple has plans for a “3D touch technology” utilising touch sensors from Avago Tech (a company Nintendo used for the Wii consoles).

The translation is a little fuzzy, but the report indicates that Apple owns a patent which can “simultaneously identify multiple fingerprint recognition technology panels,” plus there’s mention of “gesture control technology.”

It’s implied that Apple may be trying to do away with the Home key and transferring its functions into the display surround – just like the Apple Watch. The only thing this doesn’t solve is the Touch ID fingerprint scanner, but Apple already has a patent in place for putting fingerprint scanners underneath the display glass.

As for other details about the new iPhones — we’ll see two new models again, according to the Wall Street Journal — Apple won’t change the display sizes, while the resolution will stay “similar” –– meaning 1080p panels, not QHD.

iPhone 7 Camera: Major Updates Planned
A report from Phone Arena, citing sources in Apple’s supply chain, points to a series of key updates to Apple’s camera technology. The iPhone 6 setup was impressive, but what Apple has in store for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 looks to seriously up the ante, as you can see from the below extract.

“What will eventually be new, though, is a thoroughly redesigned camera module, with dual lens design, perhaps similar to the HTC One (M8) or Huawei’s Honor 6 Plus units, a shot at a “zoom function,” and sensor capable of soaking in more light. An optical zoom part is hard to believe, despite phones like the ZenFone Zoom that were just revealed at the CES expo, since it will require protruding lens. There are some periscope-style optical zoom designs, but the bodies of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are so thin, we doubt Apple can fit anything like that inside. On the other hand, there are lossless zoom options, and alternative approaches to optical zoom, though we don’t know how close these are to mass production. We’ll see whether this pans out at all.”

There is cause for concern, however, as reports from Asia suggest Apple may keep the same 8MP sensor inside its upcoming new iPhone release. “Analyst Jeff Pu recently discussed the financial situation of Largan Precision Co. – Apple’s major camera lens supplier. Pu forecasts that, this year, Largan faces limited growth because the industry is transiting to higher-res cameras too slowly,” reports G For Games. “As for the iPhone 6S, Jeff Pu speculates that because the smartphone will not push a larger than 8 MP camera to the market, Largan Precision Co. will have a difficult time increasing its stock price in H2 2015.”

Apple has apparently bought Israeli imaging firm LinX, a company which builds small, phone-sized camera units that can deliver DLSR-like image quality. According to the WSJ, neither Apple nor LinX is confirming the buyout, though Apple did give its usual response that it sometimes acquire small companies and is not compelled to let the public know.

“It’s not clear how and when Apple will incorporate LinX’s technology into its devices,” reports MacRumors, “but it’s possible we could see these types of camera improvements as soon as this year. Rumors have suggested Apple is looking into a major camera boost for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, with new technology that could produce SLR quality images, and LinX’s multi-aperture lens systems could potentially accomplish that feat.”

The iPhone –– at least according to Flickr –– is one of the most popular camera phones on the planet. More images taken with an iPhone are uploaded to Flickr than any other handset. Apple knows this too and will be looking to dramatically cement its position in the imaging space during 2015 with the iPhone 6s or iPhone 7 (no one seems to know which is launching).

“Apple’s commitment to photo quality has continually led to iOS cameras that offer superior images compared competing smartphones, and the acquisition of LinX could put it even further ahead of the competition,” added the report.

iOS 9 To Be Focused On STABILITY
Apple’s iOS platform, for the longest time, was incredibly stable but after a string of large, feature-packed updates inside iOS 7 and iOS 8 a lot of this stability was compromised, forcing the company to issue plenty of memorable “patch” updates to fix issues.

“For 2015, iOS 9, which is codenamed Monarch, is going to include a collection of under-the-hood improvements. Sources tell us that iOS 9 engineers are putting a “huge” focus on fixing bugs, maintaining stability, and boosting performance for the new operating system, rather than solely focusing on delivering major new feature additions. Apple will also continue to make efforts to keep the size of the OS and updates manageable, especially for the many millions of iOS device owners with 16GB devices,” reports 9to5Mac.

But stability is likely to be just the tip of the iceberg. Apple has been carefully building the world’s first 64-bit mobile platform, and in 2015 with the launch of iOS 9 the company will likely unveil myriad new ways for developers to create content for both mobile and OS X, meaning crossover is inevitable, notes Computer World.

“iOS 9 devices will also enjoy tremendous integration with Apple’s Macs, making both platforms the best-in-class choice for anyone who wants to get things done – from consumer to the enterprise; from oil and gas exploration using M2M facilities, iPads and IBM-driven big data systems to gurning grinning gamers.

“It is possible iOS 9 will only be made available for 64-bit devices, so that’s any iPhone since iPhone 5S and post-October 2013 iPad Air and iPad mini tablets. Those on older devices may need to upgrade.”

Apple’s renewed focus on stability will apparently mirror similar initiatives from the company for its OS X platform. According to multiple sources, Apple will release public betas of iOS 9 to the public ahead of a gold-standard release. The idea being that once the platform goes official, it will be completely bug-free and as smooth and stable as iOS used to be prior to the launch and release of iOS 7 –– when Apple started pushing lots of new features into the mix.

“In an effort to eliminate bugs from upcoming iOS versions ahead of their general releases,” reports 9to5Mac, “Apple plans to launch the first-ever public beta program for the iOS operating system, according to multiple people briefed on the plans. Following the successful launch of the OS X Public Beta program with OS X Yosemite last year, Apple intends to release the upcoming iOS 8.3 as a public beta via the company’s existing AppleSeed program in mid-March. This release will match the third iOS 8.3 beta for developers, which is planned for release the same week. Apple then expects to debut iOS 9 at its June Worldwide Developer Conference, with a public beta release during the summer, and final release in the fall…”

iPhone 7 Specs: A9 Chipset & 2GB of RAM
Samsung semiconductor head Kim Ki-nam has now confirmed Samsung will be providing 14-nanometer processors to Apple for use inside its 2015 iPhones and iPads. Ki-nam confirmed this victory would have a HUGE affect on Samsung’s bottom line in 2015. Samsung’s technological progress with its 14-nanometer process, an area it has invested heavily in, swung the pendulum away from TSMC and back in of favour of Samsung.

“The balance of power has shifted back to Samsung,” reports RE/Code, “thanks to its advanced fabrication technology. That same advantage is said to be putting pressure on Qualcomm, which has been the biggest maker of chips in high-end phones. Owing in part to its own manufacturing edge, Samsung is expected to use its Exynos processors in forthcoming handsets instead of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810, which is made in TSMC’s factories.”

Samsung has invested a HUGE sum on money into its display and semiconductor businesses, a reported sum of $21.4 billion. All of this was done to ensure Samsung remains in growth and profitable for 2015/16 and beyond. Dr. Kinam Kim, president and general manager of the semiconductor business of Samsung, told press Samsung’s profits would improve dramatically in 2015 with the addition of Apple’s 14nm A9 chipset for its upcoming iPhone 7.

“Samsung LSI hasn’t directly confirmed Apple as its 14nm customer. But the company sounded confident about 14nm FinFET ramp in the second half of this year during its Q4 2014 earnings call,” said Strategy Analytics analyst Sravan Kundojjala. “Samsung LSI is looking to regain share in applications processors with the help of 14nm FinFET chips after seeing a steady share decline in its AP shipments over the past few years.”

A report via Apple Insider cites an anonymous “person familiar with Apple’s future product plans, who has provided reliable information in the past.” The source alleges that Apple’s iPhone 6s will ship with 2GB of RAM onboard. Of course we’ve heard similar talk ahead of the last few iPhone launches and it hasn’t come to pass. As Apple Insider points out; the iPhone has stuck with 1GB of RAM since the iPhone 5 launched in 2012.

iPhone 7 Release date News and Rumors

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been with us long enough now that we’re getting a little tired of them. Fickle, we know. But the mooted specs and features of the new iPhone (probably called the iPhone 6S, with the iPhone 7 coming in 2016) are starting to trickle out.

Latest update: We could see an iPhone 6c alongside the iPhone 6s. Plus Apple seems to be working hard on its batteries and Force Touch might be exclusive to the iPhone 6s Plus.

We’ve also rounded up 10 things we think should appear in the next iteration for Apple to finally have the all-conquering handset it’s been trying to create for so many years.


What would you like to see in the iPhone 6S and iPhone 7? Do let us know in the comments. But before we get to what we want to see, here are the best (and most believable) of the rumors on offer so far:

Cut to the chase

What is it? Apple’s next flagship
When is it out? Very likely September 2015 but some believe as soon as spring
What will it cost? A lot, at least £539 / $649 / AU$869
News and rumors

The iPhone 6s could get two innovative features if rumors are to be believed. First up there’s the Apple SIM, which first appeared in the iPad Air 2 and allows users to switch network without changing their SIM card. Network freedom would be great, but we’re not convinced that carriers will support it.

The other rumored feature takes the form of ‘Force Touch’. This is something we’ll first see on the Apple Watch and it allows the display to differentiate between different strength presses, responding in different ways.

According to sources speaking to Apple Insider and echoed by The Wall Street Journal, the feature will make it across to the iPhone 6s (or possibly just the iPhone 6s Plus), though the same sources have squashed rumors of a two-lens camera system, claiming it would require a radical redesign of the chassis, which isn’t on the cards.

Those rumors were started by Daring Fireball’s John Gruber, who said the iPhone 6s will have “the biggest camera jump ever”, featuring a two-lens system which apparently brings it up to DSLR quality.

We could even speculate what that camera might be, as Sony has just announced a 21MP stacked CMOS sensor which might fit the bill, especially as Sony currently supplies Apple with camera modules.

It’s designed to be better able to focus on fast moving objects and includes HDR for 4K video and high-resolution photos, and while Apple might go for a lower-spec sensor (8MP to 21MP is a massive jump) it’s interesting to see what features are being made available. But don’t hold your breath now the original rumor has had doubt cast on it.

There’s even an outside chance that the camera might include a lens swap feature, making it even more like a DSLR, as earlier in the year an Apple patent for swappable lenses was uncovered, though patents don’t always turn into products.

The iPhone 6s will of course come with a new processor, probably dubbed the A9 and we’re hearing again that Samsung is in the frame to build the chip which will apparently be 15% smaller, 20% more powerful and 35% more power efficient than the Apple A8 processor found in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

It will also be better to flick around, thanks to the mooted upgrade in the specs – 2GB of RAM would certainly soup up an already zippy phone and its an upgrade which has now been rumored a second time, so it might well happen. That said, the obvious worry is whether developers hoovering up that extra power will cause Apple to return to its usual battery woes.

The good news there is that Apple is seemingly going on a hiring spree for battery-related positions, so hopefully some new blood at the company will help keep the iPhone 6s juiced up.

Reports suggest Apple will publicly try out its next operating system through a beta system later this summer. According to reports from 9to5mac Apple will let users sign up to a beta programme for iOS 9 with access coming to those public testers at some point during the summer.

If the rumors are to be believed it’ll then launch on the iPhone 7 but will likely only supply bug fixes and won’t introduce any major new features.

It’s expected support for Apple’s new streaming music service will be included in the iOS 8.4 update but that isn’t confirmed just yet so Apple may wait until iOS 7 and bring it in as a major new feature. The music streaming service comes after Apple purchased Beats last year and is expected to take on the tough competition of Spotify.

iPhone 7 design

There are numerous Apple patents in the wild which point to weird and wonderful designs, but haven’t yet come to anything, such as more than one for a phone with a curved display, a little like the Galaxy Note Edge. It’s possible that we could see that in the iPhone 6S, but we’d be very surprised.

Not only would it be a risky move to bring something so untested to market but Apple has just redesigned its handsets with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, so in all likelihood this year’s models will stick to roughly the same design, albeit with beefed up innards, such as a faster A9 processor.

While the design probably won’t change much, the screen might, as rumors suggest that Apple has teamed with Foxconn to produce sapphire displays for the iPhone 6S.

Such screens were rumored for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but production difficulties seemingly got in the way. Hopefully this time we actually will get them as it would bring better scratch protection and higher visibility to the screen.

There are also rumors that Apple might release another 4-inch phone this year and it may even have curved screen edges in line with the iPhone 6, so while larger sizes are likely to remain an option it seems the Cupertino company might not have abandoned its smaller handsets.

An iPhone 6C as we’re calling it is looking ever more likely, with a handful of reports and rumors now pointing to one and we may even have seen it in the flesh.

We might also be seeing pink, as other rumors suggest Apple will be adding a pink option to its flagship line-up.

Apple iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 release date

We can take an educated guess that the iPhone 6S will launch in September 2015 as previous models have launched in that same month.

On the other hand, a source speaking to StableyTimes claims that Apple might bring the release of the iPhone 6S forward to coincide with the Apple Watch in the spring. Let’s be clear though: that will not happen. Now the Watch is coming in April, there’s no way we’re going to see another iPhone at the same time.

It wouldn’t be the first time Apple’s made a quick turnaround with new hardware, as it did similar with the iPad 4, so in the extremely unlikely event it does reboot the iPhone in April it would be a very minor change, like a boost in capacity at the bottom end from 16GB to 32GB.

Samsung is reportedly already producing the A9 processor that is expected to be included in the iPhone 6S, so it’s possible that it could arrive before September. Either way we’ve still got a while to wait, so in the meantime, here’s what we want to see:

1. A smaller screen

We know, we know. Everybody’s been going “Apple should totally make bigger phones”, and now we’re effectively saying “O noes! Apple your phones are too big!” But bear with us on this one.

For many people the iPhone 5S is the perfect size, big enough for apps but not so big you need a friend to help you carry it. If you tend to use your phone as a phone, bigger screens can be counterproductive, especially if you have small hands or just don’t like holding something enormous to the side of your head.

We think an iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 with the same screen size as the 5S would be a winner, not instead of the larger models, but alongside them.

2. Wireless charging

Wireless charging remains one of the most frustrating technologies around, because while it’s here, it works and it feels like living in the future, it isn’t as widely supported as we’d like.

It’s rather like Google Wallet’s NFC payments in that respect: the idea’s sound but maybe it needs a fruit-themed firm from Cupertino to get on board before it’ll really take off. An iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 with wireless charging would be great, especially if the same charger worked for next year’s Apple Watch too.

3. Lightning cables that don’t die

Some members of the Ephemeroptera family, such as mayflies, have a lifespan of just one day. That means they last approximately eleventy billion times longer than Lightning cables.

We know that spontaneously self-harming cables should be covered by the warranty, but if the iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 Lightning cables could be toughened up to save us those trips to the Genius Bar we’d be delighted. If Apple won’t give us wireless charging, it could at least eliminate the weakness in its chargers.

4. No more 16GB models

iOS 8 adoption has stalled, and we reckon it’s largely because people with 16GB iPhones don’t have enough free space for the 5.7GB over-the-air update and don’t want to use iTunes because, well, iTunes.

When your software updates are too big for your entry level products, your entry level products clearly don’t come with enough storage. How about starting at 32GB for the iPhone 6S and 64GB for the iPhone 7? We can’t store everything in iCloud, even when it’s working properly.

5. The same camera as the iPhone 6 Plus

The iPhone 6 Plus camera takes better photos than the iPhone 6 camera because it’s stabilised.

The necessary bits and pieces add a whopping 0.2mm to the thickness of the device, and we can promise Apple that the number of people who wouldn’t buy an iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 because it was 7.1mm instead of 6.9mm is as insignificant as that 0.2mm difference.

iPhone X Futuristic Concept

This time we’ve got inspiration from the science fiction, we’ve thought to this iPhone X ( iPhone 7 ) concept as a one of that curious devices that there’s in every sci-fi movie: one of that phone that can transform itself, operate with an unlimited energy source, do crazy things and so on…
The iPhone X ( iPhone 7 ) is the world’s first fully nano-technological domestic assistant, it has been made with the ” iConGen ” , an incredible machine that can create any sort of concepts thanks to SET Solution. (Well, we’re writing a lot of bullshit but, for a second, let’s consider this little video as a piece of a sci-fi movie!)


This new smartphone is tomorrow’s phone today, the future begins now with the iPhone X.

We’ve taken some quotes from a famous sci-fi movie, can you guess which?

Best Smartphones of 2015 iPhone 7, Galaxy S6 and Note 5 Review

Many new smartphone models are coming out in 2015, but the phones generating most anticipation are the iPhone 7, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5. These models are generating the most excitement because of the features they are rumored to contain.

Sources say the next smartphone from Apple will be called either the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 6s. Regardless of the name, it is expected to wow it customers. One feature on the iPhone 7 which has been reported widely is its dual lens camera with the capability to take DSLR-quality photos. Another feature that is being rumored is its “sidewall display” which will stretch the screen up to the sides of the phone, giving the impression of seamlessness. While this display could make the iPhone 7 thicker than the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, it could also see the use Liquidmetal for the body and Sapphire glass for the screen.


Samsung is gearing up to launch the Galaxy S6 next year. Sources say the device is going to feature a quad HD screen with SuperAMOLED Technology, which will be an improvement on the usual full HD screen. It also appears that the company will take on larger phablets like the Nexus 6 and LG 3 by providing the phone with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 screen pixels.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5, meanwhile, will aim to improve on the design and features present in the Galaxy Note Edge, which featured a curved display. This could mean the company is aiming for a resolution in the range of 600 pixels per inch. Powering the phablet will be 4 GB of RAM coupled with an octa core processor. Sources say Samsung could include fingerprint and retina scanners in its upcoming device.

iPhone 7 im Video und iOS 9 Benchmark

Mit einem iPhone 7 Konzept im Video sowie Fotos aber auch einem iOS 9 Benchmark starten wir ins Wochenende (nachdem ihr ja bereits hoffentlich alle die neuen Facebook AGB akzeptiert habt).


iOS 9 Benchmark

Gerade erst veröffentlicht Apple das iOS 8.1.3 Update, das alle relevanten Sicherheitslücken für einen iOS 8.1.3 Jailbreak geschlossen hat, schon findet sich ein (angebliches) iOS 9 Benchmark Ergebnis eines iPhone 6 im Internet. Gesetzt den Fall, dass dieses Benchmark tatsächlich echt sein sollte (was wir bezweifeln), dann ist zum aktuellen Zeitpunkt iOS 9 nahezu genauso performant wie iOS 8.

iOS 9 wird jedoch frühestens zu WWDC 2014 vorgestellt und erst im Herbst mit dem neuen iPhone 6S und iPhone 6S Plus erwartet. Bis dahin liegt noch ein (steiniger) iOS 8 Weg vor uns: iOS 8.2 gemeinsam mit der Apple Watch beispielsweise.

Apple iPhone 7 Fotos und Video

Der Designer Yasser Farahi von Ovalpicture präsentiert im Video sowie in mehreren Bildern seine Vorstellung von einem iPhone 7. So schick und futuristisch, ja sogar wünschenswert das hier gezeigte iPhone 7 auch sein mag – 2015 dürfte das Jahr von iPhone 6S und iPhone 6S Plus werden und kaum äußerliche Änderungen am iPhone Design mitbringen sondern stattdessen verbesserte Hardware wie beispielsweise einen neuen leistungsstärkeren Prozessor sowie eine bessere Kamera beinhalten.
