A series of photos of a component that appears to be a logic board bound for Apple's next-generation iPhone appeared Friday, bearing a small chip -- said to be an NFC controller from NXP -- that professes to confirm the feature's presence in the so-called "iPhone 6." In addition, a new video of assembled parts seems to show a fully functional unit, though it won't boot past the "Connect to iTunes" screen. The chip does not sport a manufacturer's name or mark. Instead,...
Though Apple is expected to unveil its hotly anticipated "iWatch" at a forthcoming Sept. 9 event, the device won't actually ship to consumers for some time, potentially missing the holiday season entirely and arriving in stores in early 2015, according to a new report. AppleInsider was first to discover an Apple patent filing describing a watch design with flexible display. Citing "sources in position to know," the well-connected John Paczkowski of Re/code reported on...
In a new spot posted to its YouTube account on Friday, Samsung took to the streets of New York City and asked consumers to compare the Galaxy Tab S to the iPad Air, with the results predictably skewed in favor of the Samsung tablet. Hosted by a wild-haired young man named Deval, the one minute and twenty-two second commercial invites people who are out-and-about to compare the slates primarily on physical features, like thinness and weight. "It's actually really...
With the launch of Apple's next-generation iPhone less than two weeks away, a new set of photos that emerged on Friday offer a look at what is said to be a near-final rear shell and cover glass elements for the forthcoming handset. The pictured components look almost identical to previous leaks and appear to be for a 4.7-inch device. They first appeared on Chinese web forum Wei Feng, where the original poster made no claims as to their provenance. The shell itself...
Adding to the pile of rumors suggesting NFC hardware will be built into the next iPhone, a report on Friday narrows down the as-yet-unannounced component's source to Dutch chipmaker NXP, the same firm that supplies Apple with the M7 coprocessor. Citing people familiar with Apple's plans, the Financial Times reports the company has been working with NXP on contactless mobile payment system based on near-field communication technology, possibly tied to users' iTunes...
Building on rumors that Apple will release an iOS-based mobile payments solution with its next-generation "iPhone 6," the well-connected John Gruber claims the new handset will feature NFC hardware and a new secure enclave to store credit card information. Purported 'iPhone 6' and iPhone 5s logic boards compared. | Source: Nowhereelse.fr In a missive posted to his Daring Fireball blog, Gruber says Apple's upcoming iPhone lineup will not only sport near-field...
Adobe on Thursday issued the first update to its Creative Cloud-connected Photoshop Mix app for iPad, bringing hooks into Photoshop Express and Dropbox, as well as a few UI tweaks to the on-the-go image editing tool. Photoshop Mix version 1.1 builds on Adobe's June release with a few key features that tie the app more closely with mature Creative Suite offerings like Photoshop Express. Introduced as part of the update is Image Swap, which lets users quickly rearrange...
A set of rules discovered in the latest iOS 8 beta show Apple is already taking steps to ensure sensitive user health data harvested by the upcoming HealthKit API remains private, especially as it applies to firms wanting to harness the information for targeted ad campaigns. Ahead of Apple's expected iOS 8 launch in September, the company has restricted developers from selling or otherwise distributing sensitive data collected by the HealthKit application programming...
Seemingly corroborating recent claims that Apple will launch its long-awaited "iWatch" wearable at an upcoming iPhone special event, Bloomberg on Thursday reported that the company decided to pair the two hardware announcements in order to "manage expectations" of the hotly anticipated wearable. Citing sources with information on the matter, Bloomberg says Apple will unveil a so-called "iWatch" wearable device alongside the next-generation iPhone lineup at a special...
Following Apple's announcement that it would move its September media event -- at which both the "iPhone 6" and "iWatch" are said to be unveiled -- from the company's typical event stage in San Francisco to much larger space in Cupertino, new photos show that they have also constructed a bespoke two-story building on the grounds likely dedicated to the event. Photos depict a large, square, all-white building -- though its coloring could be merely the result of a screen...
