Well incidentally the largest iPhone was about the same size at 62.1mm. So I think 63.2mm is plausible, until Apple can manage to get zero brezel.   I have always thought the next iPhone screen Ratio will likely change to 21:9, in order to get larger screen without getting too wide. Which sounds just about right with the measures.
To me, the patents are more like a tools used against Samsung more then having any actual value itself. May be those patents are really useless, or may be they are generic. But there should be no disagreement that Samsung Copied Apple, from design to trade dress. And many other little things and details. But these are hard to argue, and sometimes experience ,"trade dress" design are hard to explain and put into context infront of court. Hence why these patents are...
Apart from the initial cost of buying / building the site and equipment. Datacenter is just all about cooling and Server usage which equals to electricity usage. Apple can afford to throw some money in it for renewable electricity. Other then small maintenance fees Apple basically gets to run its Datacenter for free.   Which comes to think about it. The reason why Apple has been relatively slow in its DC expansion, is purely because they need to buy its ways into...
The slide were on some Chinese site. Since not many other western media were publishing report on IDF China. Anand had no news to confirm either. Not Braswell, which many media were quoting as Skylake ( wrong ). But a Slide on possibility of Fanless PC with the Broadwell 14nm running at ~15W TDP range. So basically you dont get any CPU performance improvement from the previous Haswell CPU, you get 50% improvement in GPU, and a large drop of TDP.
 I was thinking of the same thing. Renew those deals and sell the lossless tracks as default. Then bring the Lower Quality 64Kbps AAC+ files as streaming option.
It is breaking news   Kuo doesn't say he thinks or what so ever. He seems confident.   Something went wrong?
 You are comparing Apple to Orange. Did any one ever said Snapdragon were ever state of the art? Surely it isn't to me. And i could foresee huge amount of headroom and potential for improvement in those. And there is nothing generalized in those baseband chips. Unless you count GSM and CDMA as uesless. Which i would doubt Apple dropping it. The technical improvement coming from the hardware baseband in house are minimal at best. The benefits ( both cost and power...
There is possible power saving. But definitely not tremendous. And i would bet Apple's design won be as good as Qualcomm as well. Qualcomm's baseband, transceiver, receiver, RF Filter are state of the art. The only possible technical improvement Apple could bring is by potentially ditching some flavor of technology that dont want to support, or potentially design for LTE only. But even those benefits will be small. The major potential here is cost reduction. Apart from the...
I think the most important thing that still hasn't been done is the Cloud part, iCloud Storage? iDrive ( aka buying Dropbox but failed ), and moving everything to the cloud. Apple must be waiting for something, but their DataCenter building speed isn't keeping up. ( Intentionality ? )   And the global cloud also means a few DC in Europe and Asia. Which they have none yet.
I hope this is indeed true. Apple needs to up its memory capacity to 2GB ( or Heck even 1.5GB ) for its 64bit SoC. Like Anand pointed out it is likely most application runs into memory bottleneck before CPU bottleneck. The problem is the only way to get Double the Capacity while using the same power is to move to LPDDR4, and LPDDR4 isn't even going to standardize until mid 2014. Which ( I thought ) is unlikely to make it into iPhone 6...... LPDDR4 also means double the...
