Apple iPhone 6 resolution: 828 x 1472?

Apple iPhone 6 resolution: 828 x 1472?

Lewis Curdie  Yesterday

Apple is doing a rather impressive job of keeping everyone guessing about the imminent iPhone 6, and guess everyone has.

The latest iPhone 6 titbit suggests the resolution might be 828 x 1472, maintaining the 16:9 aspect ratio introduced by the iPhone 5 in 2012, and still qualifying as "Retina" – but only just.

iPhone 6 specs: no one has any idea how much RAM it’ll have

I’ve mentioned a few times that iPhone 6 particulars are anyone’s guess at this stage, and a series of frankly questionable leaks from Out East have only served to muddy the water further.

Earlier this week it was suggested that the iPhone 6 might have just 1GB of RAM, but the upshot is that we have absolutely no idea.

iPhone '6L' panel purportedly pictured, purple present

Despite the persistent rumour of two iPhone 6 sizes, specifically 4.7in and 5.5in, most rumours of late have focused on the smaller of the two, leading some to question the very existence of the larger model.

Not so here. The panel for the larger iPhone 6 is purportedly pictured front and back, and we’re told to start calling it the iPhone 6L. Interesting.

Review of the week

Review of the week

Lewis Curdie  5 days ago

Another week, another 26 hunks of mobile news. S'happenin'? It's still very much the calm before the September storm, though Samsung found the time to churn out the completely lacklustre Galaxy Alpha, which only fuelled the fire I started earlier in the week: Are Samsung Mobile's days numbered?

In comments, Leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pics... took the gold, though it was given a cheeky boost thanks to a, uhm, slight typo. Hey, even the best of us, G. Even the best of us.

WSJ: sapphire crystal screens in 'more expensive' iPhone 6 models... maybe

WSJ: sapphire crystal screens in 'more expensive' iPhone 6 models... maybe

Lewis Curdie  6 days ago

Considering we’re possibly less than four weeks away from the iPhone 6 launch (September 9 is the current front runner), countless details remain up in the air. Is the larger iPhone 6 arriving alongside the smaller guy? Will it launch separately? Or at all?

There’s a further question mark over the use of sapphire crystal, something we’ve been writing about incessantly for the past few weeks, and here we're told it might feature in "more expensive" iPhone 6 models. Whatever that means.

iPad Air successor already in production, ‘anti-reflection’ coating

iPad Air successor already in production, ‘anti-reflection’ coating

Lewis Curdie  Aug. 12 at 14:00

With so much focus on the iPhone 6, we haven’t said a great deal about the equally inevitable iPad Air (left) and iPad mini successors.

We’re righting that particular wrong right here, with the key takeaway being that the iPad Air 2 (or whatever we’re calling it) is already in production, and might well be hot on the heels of the iPhone 6.

Front section of iPhone 6 pictured looking ready to rock

If the latest whispers are on the money, the iPhone 6 launch could go down as early as four weeks from tomorrow – that’s September 9, 2014, for calendar fans.

As such, we can fully expect a deluge of iPhone 6 picture leaks in the coming weeks, and ho! That’s exactly what we’re seeing above.

John Gruber: iWatch launch in September or October

When John Gruber talks about Apple stuff, people tend to listen, and indeed the collective “blogosphere” (bleurgh) was whipped into a veritable frenzy with the briefest mention of the iWatch in a recent post.

Ultimately we’re told the iWatch will launch in September or October, and while that isn’t exactly a revelation, the circumstances of the prediction make for fairly amusing reading.

Highlight of the week? I'm torn between the launch of sister site Wareable.com, and... wait for it... the arrival of broadband in my house! # Ceeeeeelebrate good times, come on! # Oh, and not forgetting the 25 hunks of news below. Yes.

Most comments goes to Meet Wareable.com (speaks for itself, eh?), with honourable mention going to Four mobile technologies we're looking forward to.

Apple and Samsung drop all patent litigation outside the US

Ah, patent disputes. To be fair, it’s been largely quite quiet on the litigation front of late (or maybe we’ve just learned to ignore it), but we’ve got some decidedly good news here.

Apple and Samsung, undoubtedly two of the worst mobile companies when it comes to moaning about stuff in court, have agreed to ditch all disputes outside the United States of Americans.
