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?
Why has Apple made such a simple program only available to users who have upgraded to iOS 7? I am still happily using iOS 6 (iOS 7 won't sync unless you have installed the latest iTunes 11, which I don't like), so this program is not available to people like me.
I agree - perhaps an overhaul is needed. I'm still using iTunes 10.7, mostly because I don't like some of the "downdates" (oh, updates according to Apple, sorry!) - in other words the removal of features, such as having the choice of a dark background (I don't like the bright white), or resizing of album art, just to name a few. Unfortunately iTunes 10 won't sync with OS7, not that I'm too bothered, unless I buy a new iPad, of course, which I'm considering. Although it's...
