iPhone 6c Or 7 RUMORS

Oct 17, 2015 - 2:24 PM - by sparkyscott21



According to a report out of VentureBeat, Intel has built a team of more than 1,000 people to build chips for the next-generation iPhone. Specifically, Intel hopes to supply its 7360 LTE modem chip to Apple for the device, and if all goes well, even take part in the manufacturing.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus both feature Qualcomm’s 9X45 LTE chip. Intel hopes to next year provide its modem for at least some of the iPhones Apple produces in 2016. Qualcomm is currently tasked with providing modems for all of Apple’s phones.

Intel’s 7360 LTE modem is expected to begin shipping by the end of this year with device manufacturers beginning to implement it during 2016. Intel reportedly sees its partnership with Apple as crucial to its future in the mobile space. Obviously, Apple is a very demanding client with incredibly large-scale production, hence the need for over 1,000 employees on the account.

It’s important to note, however, that Intel has yet to fully reach an agreement with Apple. At this point, Apple is still waiting to see if Intel can hit all of the milestones on the project before officially inking the agreement. Another possible reason that the deal has yet to be fully reached, however, is that the partnership may go deeper than just the LTE modem.

VentureBeat further suggests that Apple would like to create a system-on-a-chip for the next-gen iPhone that combines both its Ax processor and the LTE modem chip. Doing this would provide improved speed, better power management, and thus better battery life. It would also make for a smaller chip, allowing more to be put inside the device itself, such as a bigger battery. As part of this process, Apple would design the system-on-a-chip and apply its name to it, therefore licensing the LTE modem from Intel.

While Apple would create the chip, Intel would handle the production of it using its 14-nanometer process. Currently, Samsung and TSMC share the production task, but use a 20-nanometer processor. Intel 14-nanometer process would lead to superior density and gate pitch, according to the report. Intel is also currently working on perfecting its 10-nanometer process, in which Apple is very interested.

While none of this is confirmed, and likely won’t be until Apple officially announces its next-gen iPhone in 2016, Apple has been sending engineers to work with Intel on the project.

Apple announces iPhone 6s & 6s Plus with 3D Touch, A9 CPU, 12MP camera, rose gold

Sep 09, 2015 - 2:58 PM - by sparkyscott21



Apple's new iPhone 6s series will offer users an entirely new way to interact with their handset, sensing pressure from fingertips to enable entirely new shortcuts in iOS 9. It also boasts an all-new 12-megapixel iSight camera, a souped-up A9 processor that nearly doubles performance over the iPhone 6, and a new rose gold color option.

Calling it "just as profound as the first Multi-Touch," Apple marketing head Phil Schiller touted 3D Touch as an entirely new way to interact with the iPhone.

In a video narrated by design head Jony Ive, Apple showed how users can use 3D Touch to quickly access functions within apps from the home screen, and to quickly view linked content such as an address in a text message.

Apple's head of software engineering, Craig Federighi, also took to the stage to show multiple uses for 3D Touch in a variety of apps. For example, a link in an iMessage could be pressed more forcefully with 3D Touch, allowing the user to preview the link without actually opening Safari.






Quick 3D Touch actions from the home screen include a "Take Selfie" option on the Camera app, selecting "Directions Home" in Maps, or "Update Status" in Facebook Federighi also showed how users can quickly switch between apps with a combination of 3D Touch and edge gestures.

The iPhone 6s brings Apple's Taptic Engine from the Apple TV to the handset. These new vibrations were described by Ive as a "mini-tap" and a "full tap" that will give users tactile feedback when interacting with the iPhone 6s.






The new iPhones are made of a custom 7000 series aluminum, and come in four colors: space grey, silver, gold, and rose gold. The cover glass has also been improved with a dual ion-exchange process.

Inside, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus includes a new third-generation 64-bit A9 chip with a new transistor architecture. Apple says the A9 is 70 percent faster at CPU tasks and 90 percent faster at graphics tasks than the iPhone 6 and its A8 processor.

Apple also spent a considerable amount of time boasting of the camera capabilities of its new iPhone 6s series. It includes a 12-megapixel lens and larger image sensor.

The camera is also capable of capturing 4K-resolution high-definition video featuring 8 million pixels.

Apple adds server-to-server web service requests to CloudKit

Feb 06, 2016 - 2:08 PM - by sparkyscott21



Apple's CloudKit framework for automating apps' storage and retrieval of user data "in the cloud" has learned a new trick. Developers can now read and write data in their app's public database from a server-side process or script.

Apple launched CloudKit in 2014 to provide third party app developers with easy to use, secure, scalable iCloud data storage for their users. It used the technology to launch its own new Photos app, which automatically stores users' photos in an iCloud database that keeps images in sync between devices.

Last summer, the company added support for accessing CloudKit app data via JavaScript and Web Services, enabling developers to build websites that present the same data to users who sign in with their Apple ID. Apple used this feature to develop a iCloud web client for Notes, presenting a web view of the same content users see when they open their Notes app on iOS 9 or a Mac.







Apple has now introduced the ability for developers to access their iCloud data via an automated server-to-server request, making it possible to build apps and web sites that not only store data, but can update, process or otherwise editor or modify user data stored on Apple's servers.

An app like Photos, for example, could offer cloud-based image processing, while an app like Notes could update users' documents with live data or perform scripted server-side editing (such as optical character recognition in images).

The new functionality makes CloudKit a more flexible and powerful tool for app and web developers who want to leverage cloud-based storage and processing without rolling their own server-side implementation, enabling them to focus on client app features instead.
