We are back with more rumors of the iPhone 6 or iPhone Air. A reliable source has been cited stating the upcoming iPhone 6 wouldn’t launch until September 2014. Unnamed sources have stated, the proof comes from Apple block out vacation time for employees at a German store. We saw this same behavior from Apple last year. They do this so all employees will be available to work during the launch dates to “have all hands on deck”.
The new iPhone 6 is expected to deliver some pretty impressive specifications. According to Kuo, a reliable Apple analyst, the iPhone 6 will feature a brand new design which will include a 4.7-inch screen, 1,334 x 750-pixel display, a new Apple A8 processor and NFC. Kuo also stated the larger iPhone 6, 5.5 inch display, would launch in late 2014.
In other Apple rumors these relating to iOS 8, a Chinese blog called Mac Otakara stated iOS 8 plans to bring a much better music experience to iOS 8. iOS 8 is expected to bring the ability to play back 24 bit tracks at sample rates higher than 48 kHz and they will introduce high fidelity iTunes music downloads that may take advantage of the new capabilities. Reports also have stated iOS 8 will bring new ear buds and a new lightning connector during WWDC. Many think WWDC will focus primarily on the Mac OSX and iOS 8. It’s getting closer each day so I guess only time will tell for certain.
Apple will release split screen multitasking for the iPad. The iPad mini isn’t expected to get this update in iOS 8. However, the new larger iPhone 6 is expected to get the update. Users will be able to open two application simultaneously on the screen at once. They will be able to drag files from one side of the screen to the other with no problems and fluid. This will definitely make using the laptop more obsolete than its already becoming. Many need to use two apps simultaneously, therefore requiring them to use a laptop. This news is welcomed by many including myself.
Flappy Bird is planning to return to the App store this summer. Whether the game will be the exact same we don’t know. At the time Flappy Bird was pulled from the App store earlier this year, it was grossing $50K per day. It’s been downloaded more than 50 million times. Those numbers are almost unimaginable for me. Especially, making $50K daily but I could definitely, get use to it. There’s also been talk of a sequel coming too. Stay tuned to iPhonecaptain for all the up to date news on everything Apple worth knowing. What do you think about iPhone 6? Are you going to play Flappy Bird 2?
