All-new dial-in experience! See below — do not call into Talkshoe, we won’t be there. Be sure to set up Fuze Meeting before the show if you want to join in live.
It’s Sunday, and it’s time for the TUAW talkcast! Late this week, AllThingsD let loose the calendar darts and aimed at early September. The site is reporting a Sept. 10 announcement date for the next iPhone product (corroborated by iMore, although we’re still waiting for the traditional “Yep” from Jim Dalrymple).
There’s also the little matter of a presidential summit with Tim Cook, and the Washington Post’s sale to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. Call in and let’s dish — what more could you ask? Join us at 10 pm ET, and we’ll have a grand old time.
Until Apple see fit to release of the next generation iPhone, which may be sooner than you think, the iPhone 5 is the hottest competition from the iOS camp for the Android flagships, the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. For this reason, if anyone is wanting to pick up an iPhone 5 in the coming weeks, you may want to think on it just a little bit. From my experience with both the HTC One and the iPhone 5, both are incredibly capable devices, but there is certainly enough differences to bring you 10 reasons which top the One above the 5. These can be found in the video embedded at the end of this post.
To be perfectly honest, the difference which sets these handsets apart remains – as it has done for many other iterations – the operating systems. As high quality and enjoyable to use as the HTC One is, it also runs Android. This, for many people, may be a plus more than a negative, but there will always be people who just don’t enjoy Android as much as they do iOS. For the last few years, I’ve been in the iOS camp; so much so that I’ve only owned iOS devices. I’ve entered into the Android ecosystem before, but no devices have enticed me enough to jump ship relatively permanently, for which I have to give the HTC One extreme credit. If you’re a diehard iOS fan, and you can see no advantage to Android over your current setup, you may have to look elsewhere, but for everyone else, the HTC One is one of the most accessible phones on the market.
A number of different sources are expectedly speculating on the specification of the iPhone 5S which Apple is expected to announce at the September 10th event. Known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is having his own say on what he and his company expect from Apple’s new smartphone.
The potential inclusion of a fingerprint sensor has been talked about consistently over the last few months. The appearance of biometric based data from one of the beta versions of iOS 7 teardown has also pretty much confirmed that Apple is at least testing some kind of biometric detection in one of their devices. Ming-Chi Kuo, a respected industry analyst from KGI Securities, has been verbal with his predictions in the past to some degree of accuracy but he seems to be the first that is suggesting Apple could be planning on changing the overall design of the home button as well as the surrounding material.
Apple is set to unveil the next iPhone on September 10th, according to a new report from AllThingsD. The website is known to have very accurate sources, so people can feel safe in marking their calendars now.
AllThingsD doesn’t offer any additional information on the specs of the new iPhone–and if we’ll see a lower cost iPhone as well. However, the site also claims Apple “is also expected to formally launch the next version of Mac OS X, known as Mavericks, in the coming weeks,” but not at the September 10th event.
It’s all but confirmed! Apple will unveil the next generation iPhone at an event on Tuesday, September 10th. The news comes from WSJ’s AllThingsD which has a great track record of accurately reporting such event dates.
