The best use for curved glass with a flexible LCD display is to simply have the display curve over the edges of the phone. This would make the screen more than edge to edge. It would have the same effect as an infinite pool. It would be visually stunning. It would require some minor changes to the UI design of all apps since there would need to be a touch safe region of the screen (on the top surface slightly inset from the edges) since you don't want touchable buttons...
Robots. In American factories. Apple should design them. Apple should program them. When they work really well, Apple can sell them to us as another amazing product. Robots keep secrets. Robots don't go on strike. No one cares if a robot is damaged in an industrial accident. The Mac Pro factory in Texas was the prototype but hopefully soon every Apple product will be made by automated factories.
These take some time to turn on which is really dumb. I think their CPU has to boot up before turning on the light. When they do come on, they are great but expect a second or two of darkness when you flip the switch.
Call it the iPad Pro. It is this device that makes me think we will see real operating system features, such as a true file system, emerge in iOS 8 to go with this pro tablet. Other pro features would be 2 GB of RAM, eSATA speed flash memory, virtual memory (which will absolutely scream with fast flash) and a quad core CPU. We got 64 bit in the A7 to give Apple and third party developers a platform to test with iOS 8's pro features when it goes to beta at WWDC 2014. I...
Looking forward now to the iPad 6 with a quad core A8 processor, double graphics performance (yet again), fingerprint sensor, 8 megapixel camera, 2 GB RAM, super fast eSATA flash storage and iOS 8 with a real file system and desktop features. I would not be surprised to see keyboard covers from Apple as well to turn it into a true laptop computer for those that want to use it that way. It's only a year away now.
I like a range of sizes for smart phones. A 6" makes sense as does a 4". My wife does not like the current iPhone because it is too big for her pockets. Apple should also go the other direction and make a tiny iPhone with a 3" screen.
8 percent. Can you imagine what the reaction would have been if the A7 was only 8% faster than the A6 processor? Instead it was about twice as fast and is 64 bit. Mobile processors are about to crash into the performance curve of Intel's desktop processors over the next year or two. It should be fun to watch.
As silly as this lawsuit is, he does have a point: It would be nice to be able to install whatever version of iOS we want on our devices (as long as it is compatible). This is a major missing feature for app developers who currently have no way to test their apps on older versions of iOS once their devices have been upgraded. And no, most of us can't afford to own a version of every iOS device running every version of iOS.
AppleTV + Game Controller + App Store = something really cool
I agree with an earlier poster that Microsoft about to take the #3 spot is the most significant bit of news here. I am no fan of the company or their products but they have a definite advantage by linking their desktop OS to their mobile OS. They also have their own native software development tools. As a developer I am finding the platform hard to ignore.
