Oh, how I wish I could buy a 17". Will they ever bring back a 17" version? Are they able to make a 17" laptop with a retina screen if they want? Using a 15" (despite a retina display) feels too cramped for me. So, I use an iMac, but alas, I can't pick it up and use it on the sofa, or take it out with me. I guess it's just wishful thinking.
I wonder if the iPhone 6 5.5" version rumours we keep hearing about might end up being an iPad Nano/Micro or something like that - so instead of a huge phone, simply an even smaller version of the iPad. It depends on the screen ratio rumours, of course. Or maybe a bigger iPod, like an iPod Pro. Just a thought, especially as 5.5" seems awfully large for a phone. But then again, many people don't use phones for making/receiving calls all that much, especially compared to...
I said earlier that this rendering doesn't look that good. But end results can look quite different of course. But if it looks anything like the following concept...   Introducing iPhone 6 - 3D concept video   Now that's what I call Apple styling!
Haha! That would do the opposite! Though plugging in my headphones isn't really a practical way to mute a device, with wires dangling around (of course, if I want sound without distracting others I could just wear the headphones, but I'm talking about if I don't want sound). Of course, "another workaround" is to hold the volume down button for several seconds (but my point is the convenience of quickly being able to mute and 'unmute' a device). Actually, have you seen...
True. But it is handy to be able to quickly hit the mute switch, isn't it, kind of like when you're watching TV, when you want to just quickly stop the sound. I play games a lot on my iPhone, so it comes in handy sometimes, usually when I'm out and about and don't want to offend people with my phone making a noise. I can use headphones of course too. It reminds me of Apple's remote - I wish that had such an option, rather than having to adjust the volume down to zero, then...
Ah, I see. Yes, you're right. I was just pondering the possibiblity whether it could be an iPod instead of an iPhone. The current iPod doesn't have a mute switch, though never understood the reason for that. Would Apple release the next iPod with a mute switch? Perhaps not. Then, the renderings must be for an iPhone, and not an iPod.
The iPhone 5 was a very different design to the iPhone 4. So the iPhone 6 may be different too. I'm not against changing it. In fact, although the chamfered edge looks beautiful when the iPhone 5 is new, they soon get scuffed. And I agree - rounded corners make more sense for a bigger phone. Until we see a real iPhone 6, I guess we can't really know how it will look. It will depend on the finishing for one thing. I'm all for a bigger screen - I spend a lot more time using...
It makes sense to move the power button from the top to the side as it makes it easier to press. So it looks like Apple is indeed working on a larger phone size.
I'm very skeptical about these iPhone renderings. First the iPhone 4 and 5 are much more beautiful than this design. It doesn't even come close to these in terms of aesthetics. But most telling is the flash. "True Tone" dual-LED flash is used on the 5s. I can't see Apple taking a step backwards with this single LED flash. Perhaps it's an pod touch design?
