Apple May Be Fashionably Late To The Smartwatch Party, But The iWatch Is Coming!

Just because you may be fashionably late to a party doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to be the life of said party. Any time a new device comes out, especially one that is able to generate a whole new section of technology, it seems like everyone jumps on board. This is typical if companies can actually see some use coming out of the device. It all depends on how crazy the demand for the product could become. If enough companies jump on the bandwagon, you can pretty much bet on the product being quite a big deal. Take the smartwatch. Apple has had rumors about their fabled iWatch for around half a year now. Many of the other companies have already beaten Apple to the punch however.

Companies like ZTE, Samsung, and Sony have all already made their own contributions to throw into the metaphorical pot, but Apple is still lagging behind. But, as we all know Apple to be the company that they are and come out swinging, there is quite a bit to expect still.

Apple may be late to the game, but they have some plans for what they intend to do with the iWatch. Rumors have already been spreading like wildfire, but now their may be a credible source to all of the talk.

A KGI analyst, one Ming-Chi Kuo, might as well be the Apple psychic, as so many of his predictions on Apple tech have been pretty spot on. Kuo had a few predictions already set for the new device. He claims that we may expect to see 2 different sizes of the new gadget by the end of this year. Closer to the third quarter of this year actually. We might be seeing a 1.3 inch display size and a 1.5 inch display size. The display of the smartwatch has been rumored to be a flexible AMOLED screen with a sapphire covering. What does the covering mean necessarily? It just means that the device will be able to mimic the shape of your write when you put it on. It might as well be comfortable too right? Kuo also made a prediction that the battery of the device could be anywhere from 200 to 250mAh in size. Since the device is so small, it is thought that the battery will be able to power the device for about a full day. This is already quite a bit longer battery life than many of the other competitors out on the market.

The design of the watch isn’t the only thing. The functions of the watch are still being rumored as well. It seems like every smartwatch out now has some type of pedometer function to go along with it. Expect to see that with this gadget, as it will be working in tandem with an app called Healthbook on the new iOS 8 when it comes out. Obviously like its competitors, the iWatch has been rumored (to the point that it can basically be confirmed already now) to connect and sync up with your iPhone and iPad. With the way the Galaxy Gear works, it should be expected to be able to connect to your other Apple devices.

The price tag for this new toy is all over the map. That is not necessarily a good thing either, as it’s more towards the “high end” of all over the map. Price range could be in the thousands of dollars for the new smartwatch, depending on the casing and band options that Apple may offer with the new iWatch. Stay tuned for more details as they emerge.

Always have trouble conserving your iPhone battery life? No worries, a better solution is in the works. In the next few years we may start to see batteries pull energy from the air and power themselves through Wi-Fi signals, or even our body movement.For many years, Apple’s engineers have tried to build a battery for iPhone users by adding solar charging to iPods and iPhones. Recently, Apple announced that they are continuing with the solar power experimenting. The race is on to find a better solution at battery life with smartphones. Most consumers say that with all the apps they are using their battery dies on an every day basis while they are on the go.It’s 2014, we do have the technology but the problem is that it is hard to ensure safety of many new power technologies. A faulty battery could turn into a miniature bomb! Revamping the smartphone battery so it will last longer requires exhaustive testing before it can hit the store shelves.

In the fall Apple will be posting a job listing seeking engineers who specialize in solar energy. Many experiments to find the best answer to saving battery life on Apple products are in the works this year.Another experiment Apple is involved with is actually charging the battery through movement, which is a method already used in many modern watches. How does this even work? By swinging your arm, a tiny charging station is activated that generates power to the device. Charging your phone while exercising may be the new million dollar idea for people to stay healthy!

Newest iPhone 6, iPad Pro, and iWatch News!

It’s time for some more Apple rumors! The iPhone 5S and 5C are still fresh in our minds, it still feels like they came out just yesterday. But Apple has already spent hundreds of millions on the production of the iPhone 6. Here are a few more rumors going around about what we could be getting next year.

3D Vision

It has been confirmed that Apple has not only teamed up with PrimeSense, but they bought the whole company. PrimeSense is the same company that built the technology behind the Xbox Kinect motion sensor. It is said that Apple has already spent over $350 million dollars on the Israeli company.

Rumors of the purchase have been around for a while, and everyone automatically assumed that since Apple bought the company that they would be putting the new technology into a new TV. But it is starting to look like they will be looking beyond that and using the technology for a few new things, including the next iPhone release.

PrimeSense has refined their technology and has been able to make it so small that it actually could fit inside the next iPhone and bless it with new 3D sensing capabilities. If this is the case then people will be able to take pictures of any object or person and the camera would be able to determine the size and mass of the object. It seems like old technology that no one would care about after phones like HTC’s EVO 3D, but this goes even deeper. The new iPhone would be able to actually take pictures of items and measure them. For instance, if you need a new couch, you would be able to take a picture of your current one and your phone could give you suggestions on new ones that would fit in the same space. How neat?

iPad Pro?

It has been reported by the Korea Times that Apple is working on a new iPad with a 12.9 inch retina display. The current iPad Mini is 7.9 inches and the original is 9.7 inches. So, this would be a huge jump in size. This is reportedly expected to hit stores in the later part of next year, around the time that we would be seeing a new iPhone release.

Touch ID

The fingerprint reader in the home button of the iPhone 5S is still pretty fresh. Lots of people love it, but others can’t seem to get it to work for some reason. According to new reports, Apple filed a huge patent application with the World Intellectual Property Organization showing that they want to turn the Touch ID into a trackpad.

If this happens, people would be controlling their iPhones by twisting their finger over the home button. You would slide your finger left or right and the map display on the screen would scroll in the same direction. You would also use this to scroll while using the browser. Kind of seems like old BlackBerry technology to me, not that exciting. And as it turns out, I’m not the only person who thinks that. Do you think that a trackpad would be a step backwards for Apple?

Other rumors for the iPhone 6 include a full front display with no borders. It is said that the new display is going to be made with sapphire glass, the same glass used on the touch ID. Apple has reportedly spent a few hundred million on just the development of the machines needed to make high volumes of the glass.

An upgraded camera, external flash compatibility and 128GB storage are also all on the list of rumors.

iWatch could be here soon

Apple is a little bit late on the wearable game, but that might give them the advantage. Seeing where other companies are falling short and applying the knowledge to make a superior device could prove to be fruitful. Mass production of the new watch is said to be in full swing by early to mid 2014.

iPhone 5 Finger scanner

 With the release of the new iPhone 5, there has been quite the amount of buzz circulating around a certain feature of the new phone. As many of us have seen in the spy movies, finger scanners just give off that “cool” vibe when it comes to security. It has also always given a more secure feeling to most people that either like their privacy or business associates with important information regarding their work. But how secure is it really?

There have been quite a few scary concerns recently regarding the new security feature. Some have even been worried that thieves may even go to extremes to unlock a phone cut a finger off. Apple has made sure to address even this extreme of an issue and has stated that the finger has to be “alive and attached” to the body still. Extreme but not unheard of. But even with this level of security, it still something that consumers are concerned about. Apple as gone on to elaborate that pass codes will still be a reigning factor in security, but will be more used as a failsafe.

Now that the iPhone 5s and 5c are here now, the implications and overall effectiveness of this feature will now be able to really be put to the test. The idea has been tinkered with for a while now, but is now viewed by some to be the start of a new revolution in security measures. Now that a large scale company such as Apple has “opened the floodgates”, so to speak, I feel it’s safe to say that we should all be expecting the competitive market to take notice and fall suit. Personally, I wouldn’t mind feeling like James Bond every time I pulled my phone out.

Apple Still Going Strong, Despite the Perception They Aren’t

With all of the new Android devices being released almost weekly, and the major decline in Apple’s stock since last fall, you would think that Apple is about to go out of business. This, of course, is an exaggeration as Apple just release their Q2 (Second Quarter) earnings numbers on Tuesday and they beat Wall Street’s expectations. Apple accrued a profit of $9.5 billion and a revenue of $43.6 billion. These revenues are slightly higher than what experts were predicting, but not quite as high a profit as Apple has had in the past.

This is welcome news for the technology giant that has seen its stock drop over 300 points from a high of  $705 a share to a low of under $400 a share since last September. Much of the concern has been over the fact that iPhone sales have been in decline, though still a massive source of revenue. iPhone sales for the last quarter were over 37.4 million units. While this is a great sales number, the growth of iPhone sales has slow quite a bit. One product, however, that showed a tremendous growth rate was the iPad. Compared to last year, iPad sales were up 65% to over 19 million units sold. The main thing that can be taken away from these figures is that Apple is still selling millions of products, but some new, “innovative” features may be necessary for continued growth.

The increased competition from new, high quality Android phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S III has had a major impact on iPhone sales. Many experts are wondering if Apple will be able to keep up with the “cutting edge” Android devices that are taking more and more of the smartphone market. Many are also speculating if Apple will release an iPhone with a larger display this year to keep up with the trend of larger smartphone screens, but CEO Tim Cook shot many of those theories down. Cook, after being asked about possibly shipping an iPhone with a 5 inch display, went on to list many of the tradeoffs and problems that come with a display that size. He detailed resolution, color quality, brightness, and so on as being issues that would keep Apple from shipping a display that size “while these tradeoffs exist”. This may sound ridiculous to those Android customers that have displays over 5″, but Apple has shown that they are “slow” to adopt a trend until it is proven and established. The best example of this would be their decision not to implement LTE connectivity into their devices until it was a “proven” and widespread standard.

One thing is certain after this reporting of revenue from Apple, they are still an extremely valuable company. Posting a revenue of over $43 billion is something that is truly “mind-boggling” and is almost hard to comprehend. That being said, Apple will need to “up its game” with their new product releases and updates this year. One area that both customers and critics agree needs to be updated is the operating system on Apple’s mobile products, iOS. Since the iPhone’s debut in 2007, iOS has been updated each year with a host of new features and abilities but has not had a drastic U/I (user interface) overhaul. Many are pointing to the customizability of the Android operating system as something that Apple needs to adopt in their new version of iOS that will most likely be released this fall. It remains to be seen what Apple will actually do, but the anticipation for their updated products and software is sure to be widespread.

Apple Becomes Generous, Gives Free Next-Day Shipping on Online iPhone Purchases

iPhone 5I love buying things online. Not only is it possible to find almost anything you need and have it shipped directly to your house without having to talk to anybody, wait in line, drive to the store and possibly have the misfortune of having your desired purchase sold out, but you can do it without wearing any pants! The only problem is that you typically don’t get the satisfaction of having it arrive immediately as you would if you had bought it in a store.

However, that isn’t the case if you want to buy a new iPhone. According to the company’s website, if you purchase an iPhone online from Apple, you can receive free next-day shipping! The deal is valid for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S but restricts customers to two phones per order.

Apple already offers free standard shipping on orders that exceed $50, though next-day shipping normally incurs an additional cost depending on the size of your particular order. What makes this deal even sweeter is that individuals who decide to purchase the iPhone 4 may be able to get the phone and have it shipped for free as the phone is already free to users who sign a new two-year contract.

The only thing wrong with this picture is that there is no specific information on the site that indicates when this promotion will end, which means you should probably take advantage of the deal as soon as you are able. Apple has, in the past, offered free next-day shipping along with free expedited shipping, though those offers were around December in order to boost holiday sales numbers.

This might be a way for Apple to try and clear some inventory space as rumors of a cheaper iPhone 5 (possibly the iPhone 5S) continue to circulate. Recent reports on that front state that Apple will be releasing sometime towards the end of June, though Apple has naturally said nothing about such plans.

 

Could a Low-Cost iPhone Boost Apple’s Earnings and Market Share?

Apple BuildingAccording to BTIG Analyst Walter Piecyk, Apple needs to launch a new, low-cost iPhone in order to boost earnings and market share. Piecyk, in an investors note, stated that he has raised his opinion on Apple stock from “neutral” to “buy” based on the assumption that Apple will launch a low-cost iPhone before the end of 2013.

Piecyk predicts that nearly 36.5 million low-cost iPhones will be sold in fiscal 2014 at an average, non-subsidized price of $300. Should that ring true, the lower-cost iPhone could add $11 billion in revenue to Apple’s next fiscal year, which officially begins in October.

According to Piecyk, “As we have previously detailed, we believe a product that addresses the more than 70% of global wireless subscribers that are unsubsidized pre-paid is necessary in order for Apple to grow its EPS next year. This is not rocket science and our belief is based on basic logic, not questionable ‘channel checks’ or trips to Asia.”

The problem with a low-cost iPhone is Apple’s commitment to “only making great products”. However, Piecysk doesn’t believe that this would compromise Apple’s philosophy, noting successes like the iPad Mini and iPod Nano as testament. In addition to that, Piecyk also had some colorful words of wisdom for Apple stockholders should the company fail to deliver a low-cost iPhone.

“If the management team does not follow this basic logic, as we expect they will, investors will need to push for a new management team. At the moment they have earned the benefit of the doubt that they will go after this market,” Piecyk added.

On the flipside, Piecyk also believes that a larger-screened iPhone would also help Apple win more customers. He also confessed that he believes that Galaxy Note from Samsung is too big for him, though that a large screen like the one on the upcoming Galaxy S4 and the HTC One “look great and could generate a lot of interest in the upcoming quarters.”

New Passcode Exploit Discovered in iOS 6

Posted by Zack | Posted in Consumer Electronics | Posted on 11-02-2013

iOS 6A new exploit has recently surfaced in Apple’s iOS operating system for its mobile devices. The exploit itself allows users to gain access to an iPhone locked via passcode even if they have no idea what the passcode is. Obviously this is a huge defect in the programming as it makes having a passcode completely irrelevant.

The good news is that Apple is well on its way to releasing a patch for this exploit. According to a recent statement released by the company, “Apple takes user security very seriously. We are aware of this issue and will deliver a fix in a future software update.”

Unfortunately, Apple was unable to give a specific time frame on when users can expect the update and its subsequent fix of the exploit. In addition to that, the company also didn’t offer any information on a “quick fix” that would temporarily allow users to secure their iPhones until the update.

The hack, which was published a month ago by a user on YouTube, recently surfaced and opens up access to the iPhone, allowing the hacker to listen to the phone’s voicemails, make calls and view contact information. However, any attempt to go beyond that information will send the hacker back to the passcode screen.

The latest update to Apple’s iOS, v6.1.1, went live earlier this week but was only a supplemental update for iPhone 4S users and only fixed an issue with cellular connectivity and reliability. All other users have the ability to update to version 6.1, which adds 4G LTE support for more carriers on Apple devices as well as a feature that allows users to purchase movie tickets from Fandango after searching for them using Siri.

This is definitely a critical flaw in the iOS for Apple. The fact that an iPhone user’s device can be accessed to listen to voicemails, make calls and view contact information is something that most users will find unnerving. Apple’s best course of action is to deliver a fix as soon as possible on this issue.

 

Apple Able to Keep Up with Demand for iPhone 5

Apple iPhone 5 whiteDespite the fact that the Samsung Galaxy is the world’s best selling smartphone, demand for the iPhone 4SXL, I mean iPhone 5, is still through the roof. Demand was so high, as a matter of fact, that Apple’s production plants, specifically Foxconn, were unable to keep up with the demand, severely angering Apple. Thankfully (for Foxconn employees at least) it only took about two months for Apple to almost catch up with iPhone 5 demand.

One of the top Apple analysts for Piper Jaffray, Gene Munster, has been tracking iPhone 5 availability at 100 Apple Stores around the United States for the past month. In that time, Munster has reported that there have been significant improvements in the past 10 days.

As of Tuesday, iPhone 5 smartphones running on AT&T were in stock at 82% of Apple stores with 72% of Verizon stores having the device in stock and 92% of Sprint stores having the newest Apple handset. In addition to that, shipping times for customers ordering online have decreased to about two weeks after having been stuck at three to four weeks since the phone launched on September 21.

According to Munster, Apple is “nearing full availability” for the iPhone 5 just in time for the holidays. The iPhone 5 debuted exactly two months ago to much fanfare, despite it essentially being the iPhone 4S with a larger screen and 4G LTE connectivity.

However, opening weekend sales were lower than expected due to supply constraints. Since then, Apple’s stock of the phone has been hit by concerns that the company’s manufacturing partners are unable to produce the latest iPhone fast enough to keep up with consumer demand.

The biggest question that Apple is facing now is whether or not the increased availability of the iPhone is due to an increased productivity from Apple’s manufacturing plants or a decreased demand for the phone which, to be honest, wasn’t as revolutionary as people expected it to be.
