Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has published an earnings preview for Apple’s Q4 financial results, in which he claims that Apple will release a bigger screen iPhone 6 in the summer of 2014, sooner than Apple’s usual schedule of a September launch.
From Business Insider:
Apple hasn’t yet announced a second wave of iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c rollout to expand the availability of the devices in more countries, but it might do so later this month. According to a report in BGR India, Apple’s reportedly working on launching the two iPhones in India around October 25th.
From BGR India:
Apple posted a job Friday seeking a Maps Web User Interface Designer to work on a “new secret project,” according to MacRumors. The original wording has now been removed from the posting, but not before MacRumors made a copy of it. Its description originally read:
Design, develop, and maintain complex front-end code for a new secret project
Now that the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c releases are out of the way, attention is beginning to turn to what we all expect to happen within a few weeks; new iPad announcements. Now that the iPad 4 and iPad mini are nudging their 1 year birthdays, it doesn’t take a genius to come to the conclusion that Apple is more than likely gearing up to release newly revised versions of its two tablet devices.
As with the both iPhone releases, it looks like the iPads will have most of their details leaked before the invite emails even go out for the unveiling event, and those pesky Chinese websites are once again at the forefront of the leaks. The latest leak comes courtesy of the folks at sw-box.com, a Chinese parts supplier that is apparently far from shy when it comes to showing off its wares to the planet at large. In a new five minute video posted to YouTube, the site shows what it claims to be the new iPad 5′s rear shell whilst taking a tape measure to it in order to illustrate the change in dimensions of the world’s most popular tablet.
9to5Mac is reporting that Apple recently hired former Nike design director Ben Shaffer.
At Nike, Shaffer was the Studio Director of the Innovation Kitchen. This is Nike’s research and development lab where new product designs are created. Under Shaffer’s lead, Nike was named the most innovative company in 2013 by Fast Company. Nike’s Innovation Kitchen has been connected to wearable products like the popular Nike Fuel Band, and most recently, the Flyknit shoe.
