ğŸŽ Battle of the iPhone 6 Rumors is in Full Bloom and Contradiction, now that we are just 7 days before Apple’s Media Event of September 9th. Below is an interesting Video Clip showing what is believed to be the iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap has been blighted with component issues, manufacturing problems, quality control, relating to the production of the iPhone 6 and its sibling iPhone 6L with its 5.5″ display.

ğŸŽ Everything You Need to Know about Apple’s Tuesday Media Event in 7 Days to Announce to new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L ~ Event Date 9/9/2014 @ 10 AM Pacific ~ iPhones Released for Sale Friday September 19, 2004 @ 8AM Eastern.

ğŸŽ http://www.Apple.com
Several ways to get your new iPhone 6 1⃣ Join the Excitementy by going to your nearest Apple retail store, but get there very early like 5am in most Cities, as the stores will be Sold-Out by 1pm 2⃣ Join the Excitementy by going to your nearest AT&T retail store (or Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) but get there very early like 5am in most Cities, as these stores will also be Sold-Out by 11am 3⃣ Order the iPhone 6 ASAP when its made available on-line, and you will receive your iPhone 6 with guaranteed delivery on 9/19/2014 by UPS directly from Apple’s contractor FOXconn, its Campus located in Shenzhen, China

ğŸŽ What will we See and Hear at Apple’s 9/9/2014 Media Event at the Flint Center to be held at 10am Pacific. BTW the event will be held at the FLINT CENTER, the venue on the De Anza College campus also is a change for Apple. Apple has tended to hold most device launches at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco or on Apple’s campus in Cupertino.

ğŸŽ Apple also has important history with the Flint Center. Steve Jobs unveiled the first MAC Computer there in 1984, and Jobs also showed off iMACs at the Flint Center in 1998 and 1999. The Flint Center can accommodate a significantly larger crowd (over 2500) than the recent venues Apple has used, further indicating the event’s importance to the company.

ğŸŽ What to expect from Apple’s CEO Tim Cook annlounced at the Flint Center Media Event on 9/9/2014

1⃣ iPhone 6 with larger displays of 4.7″ and iPhone 6L 5.5″
2⃣ iPhone 6 to have Faster A8 Processor
3⃣ iPhone 6 to have More RAM memory
4⃣ iPhone 6 to have More Storage to 128GB
5⃣ iPhone 6 to have Sapphire glass display screen
6⃣ iPhone 6 Camera increases to 10MB to 13MP pixels
7⃣ iPhone 6 Camera to have OIS, optical image stabilization
8⃣ iPhone 6 Camera to have Faster f2.0 Lens
9⃣ iWatch 1 Saved for October Media Event, to not destract from the exciting new iPhones

ğŸŽ We have been noticing online “mock-ups” of these two new models, borne from schematics apparently captured from FOXcomm computer screens. It seemed to us that the iPhone 6L looked much larger than the iPhone 6. This motivated me to make white-board cut-outs for
📱 iPhone 6L measuring 158mm by 78mm
📱 iPhone 6 measuring 138mm by 67mm
📱 iPhone 5 measuring 123mm by 58mm

ğŸŽ FOXconn’s computer screen Schematics. This week we completed the white-board cutouts from the dimensions shown on FOXconn’s computer screens. I did not take time creating home page screen, as we were singularly interested in the feel of the two devices, their length, width and holding both side-by-side. Additionally I was interested in holding the iPhone 6 and 6L Samples next to several other competitors smart phones, such as Samsung and LG offeerings.

ğŸŽ CHOPS Lobster Bar is quality 5⭐️ down town Boca Raton establishment that Marilyn and I frequent localally. The bar has 16 seats, serves a quality clientele as the dining room enjoys $100/person average dinners, tax, title, and tip. At the Bar, all the folks carry the best smart phones, with about 75% or more carrying iPhones. I’ve read that Apple enjoys about 54% market share in North America. My observations in south Florida see a significantly higher iPhone share.

ğŸŽ Compare iPhone 6 and 6L with Samsung, LG and other 4.7″ to 5.5″ display smart phones. Having handled the two Mock-Ups iPhone 6 & 6L, they both have a nice feel in the hands, having the same aspect ratios of Apple’s iPhone 5 and 5S, meaning that ratio of the smartphone’s Length to its Width is equal.

ğŸŽ We focused firstly on the 6L as all the “Talking Heads” have been remarking about the “huge” Phablets. We were actually surprised with apple’s choice of the iPhone 6L, 158mm by 78mm with a Thinner/Longer shape. It feels good in the hands, and we have smaller hands than many. The iPhone 6 measuring 138mm by 67mm is a modest increases from the iPhone 5’s measurement of 123 mm by 58mm.

ğŸŽ Comparing the iPhone 6L to the LG and Samsung Phablets, which have 5.5″ to 5.7″ displays, was surprising. The new iPhone 6L is definitely “Thinner” then the Phablet competition, making it more confortable to hold in the hand. Samsung’s and LG’s were “Fatter” and harder to hold. Since Marilyn and I do a lot of things with our iPhone 5’s other than Phone Calls, we are very interested in the iPhone 6L for its larger display offering greater utility while web Browsing, crafting emails, Phonograph, Image editing…

ğŸŽ Holding the two white-board “samples” in hand, made it easier to decide which model is best for Marilyn and myself. Before handling the cut-outs, Marilyn was satisfied with the 4.7″ choice. After holding the two White-Board cut-outs, Marilyn changed her choice for the Larger iPhone 6L. Therefore once Apple makes the new iPhone’s available on-Line, we will pre-order two iPhone 6L, Marilyn’s with 64BG storage, as she is almost full with the 32GB iPhone 5; I will upgrade to 128GB storage as I am using most of the 64GB on my iPhone 5.

ğŸŽ Surveys taken by the major Cellular Providers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) using a large customer-base of iPhone and Android users, indicate as Apple releases the anticipated large display iPhones, over 35% of existing Android mostly Samsung Galaxy, HTC, and LG users would migrate to Apple’s New iPhone 6 and 6L.

ğŸŽ The three highest ranking reasons (by AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile subscribers) for migrating to Apple’s new iPhones
1⃣ Desire for Larger smart phone Display
2⃣ Android system is too Vulnerable to Virus and Malware attack
3⃣ Apple iPhone iOS system perceived much safer against Viruses and Malware attack

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 ~ iPhone 6L, 23nd Rumor Roundup
1⃣ Apple is 9 Days & Counting
2⃣ Announce TWO new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L
3⃣ Media Event to be held Tuesday 9/9/2014
4⃣ Sapphire Displays are the Question
5⃣ Apple knows that the #1 Repair Service item for iPhone is Broken Screens
6⃣ Adding a sapphire “glass” to the iPhone eliminates about 85% of the current broken-display issues
8⃣ Sapphire having a hardness of 9
9⃣ Diamond has a hardness of 10
🔟 Gorilla Glass at 5.5 on the MOHS Scale of Mineral Hardness.

ğŸŽ Presently, there are multiple-sources claiming to have inside knowledge (don’t they always) of Apple’s plans speculating that the larger “phablet” handset will be delayed. However, this time writers have cited sources, suggesting that the new iPad Air v2 and the iPad mini v3 may also be pushed back along with the larger iPhone due to supply-line issues. This chatter is illogical. I don’t “buy it.” Apple is not going to bifurcate their iPhone 6 sales, and ruin their opening weekend extravaganza, with the delay of the most sought after Large Display iPhone…

ğŸŽ This is we Know
▶️ Apple is the only source in the know and
▶️ Apple does not talk
▶️ Those that don’t know, are doing all the talking…

ğŸŽ Camp Alpha, says that there are not enough “leaked” component images for the iPhone 6L, therefore its release may be delayed until October, 2014. Since there are not enough “leaked” images for the iPhone 6L, therefore it may not exist is laughable. What the folks receiving the “leaks” are not focusing on, the internals for the two iPhone models are basically the same, except for the iPhone Container, the internal connecting cables, the internal Battery and the Display itself.

ğŸŽ Camp Beta, says that the main circuit boards for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L are principally similar. The “leaked” images of the connection cables, extending the main circuit board’s connectivity to the iPhone 6L’s plugs and buttons are Longer, as they have a longer path in the iPhone 6L’s larger cabinet. However, iPhone 6L has reported display fabrication issues with its display and battery.

ğŸŽ Camp Delta, says that there are issues with the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display iPhone model, as battery and display issues may delay its release until 2015, baloney.

ğŸŽ Tim Cook says do not draw conclusions about reported component supply-chain issues , as Apple has many alternate supply-chain resources and fabricators supporting its delivery of hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads currently in production.

ğŸŽ Apple builds 90 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L handhelds, that’s a lot of Units. Apple will not have its destiny, the delivery of tens-of-millions of iPhones, rest in the hands of only one fabricators, nor one component supplier, nor one circuit board maker… For safety and soundness of operating, Apple always has parallel production channels for delivery of their unique, high quality iDevices.

ğŸŽ Camp Jimmy, says that Apple will release BOTH iPhone models on the Same Day, even if Apple has to delay the announcement event a few days or weeks.

ğŸŽ IMHO, if Apple were to bifurcate the iPhone 6 models release dates, this would tend to “freeze” some of the iPhone 6 buyers until they have the opportunity to visualize both models side-by-side, self included. With our Cut-Out samples in hand, we’ve both decided on the iPhone 6L whenever its made available.

ğŸŽ If Apple only releases the iPhone 6 (and delays the iPhone 6L release) then there will be no new iPhone 6 sale for us. We will wait for the larger iPhone 6L to be released.

ğŸŽ Last year, 2013, Apple released two iPhone models, the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. On its opening weekend September, 20, 2013, iPhone 5S had $4 Billion in sales with 6 million units sold; iPhone 5C had $1.7 Billion sales with 3 million units sold. That’s 9 million new iPhones in its opening weekend.

ğŸŽ This Year, Sept, 2014, with a joint release of iPhone 6 with a 4.7″ and the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display model, there could be a virtual sales tsunami of over 15 million units sold in its opening weekend the two models with sales of over $10 Billion in profitable revenues. Recall Amazon’s new FIRE Phone flopped with less than 35,000 units sold in its first Month.


ğŸŽ This is a Video Clip of the New iPhone BOX. http://youtu.be/-VxCxfPfoeE


ğŸŽ Apple to release two New Large-Display iPhones on September, 2014, with an all-new redesigned 4.7" model Plus a Larger Display 5.5" version.

ğŸŽ Both Apple iPhone hand-sets poised to take the high-end smartphone market by what’s bern characterized as a “Perfect Storm” in Apple’s iPhone life-cycle.

ğŸŽ Recent reports coming from China, suggests a 128GB storage option serves as an important differentiator between 4.7″ & 5.5″ models.

ğŸŽ Displayed is an image from an Asian “Leaked” announcement brochure showing the two new iPhone 6 models side-by-side, at 4.7″ and 5.5″ display sizes, Both to be released Simultaneously on September 19th, 2014, which matches our prediction made several months ago.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 Air 20th Rumor Roundup Update Summery
1⃣ Apple is 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day, 9/9/2014
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L in full production now
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production now
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model offers 128GB Memory Option
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model to have Sapphire Display “glass”
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model cost $100 more than iPhone 6
5⃣ Apple’s both iPhone 6 models add Temperature and Altimeter Sensors
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls, via iOS8
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ This is the “logic” supporting our theory regarding the potential release date of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6L and the simultaneous release of iOS8. The graphic below displays the time required for each of the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested showing iOS2, iOS3, iOS4, iOS5, iOS6, iOS7 and currently in beta, iOS8.

ğŸŽ A user of China’s Weibo microblogging service posted the image above of the alleged iPhone 6 promotional flyer, showing two models of the device; one featuring a 4.7″ screen and the other one with a 5.5″ screen. According to the flyer, both models of the iPhone 6 will be launched in China on September 19th, the date that was reportedly given away by German wireless-network provider Deutsche Telekom in a May inadvertent message to employees, blocking vacation time.

ğŸŽ iOS6 required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was certified by Apple for iOS6’s final release to the public. iOS7 required 7 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS7 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5S and 5C models about 10 months ago, specifically Friday, September 20, 2013.

ğŸŽ Looking at the “beta” versions to be evaluated and tested for iOS6, it required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS6 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5 Friday, September 19, 2012, however, Media Show to be held 9/9/2014.

ğŸŽ Lets Look at the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested for iOS8. Lets assume (this is analytics part) that the time consumed will likewise be a total of 100 days, before iOS8 cleared for its final release to the public. Since iOS8 will very likely be released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 6, lets calculate the future date.

ğŸŽ The bar-graph below shows that as of July 8, 2014 iOS8 is 40 days in beta testing. Assuming 100 days for completion of iOS8, then using my trusty iPhone’s math App emulating the HP 19B-II calculator, the final version of iOS8 will be loaded into iPhone 6 devices on or before Tuesday 09/02/2014.

ğŸŽ Therefore Friday, September 19, 2012 looks like a reasonable Date for the release of Apple’s iPhone 6 with iOS8 properly pre-loaded into the iPhone with its new Look, Feel, Features, Functions and Cyber Security protection.

July 8, 2014

http://tiny.cc/eyaqix

ğŸŽ Apple released iOS8 beta3 for iPhone and iPad to the developers today, 8/July/2014. This 3rd beta for Apple’s upcoming major software update to iOS8, comes three weeks after the release of beta 2. The iOS8 beta3 has a build number 12a4318c, and may be downloaded from the iOS Dev Center (if you’re a registered developer) and have a compatible iOS device. Learn more about iOS8 beta3 and the links to download it from iOS Dev Center with your registered App Developer account.

ğŸŽ What’s with all the Beta versions for iOS8. The Operating System (the OS) for the iPhone and iPad defines how the device operates and communicates with all the electronic components from a “Machine Language” point of view. The OS is the interface between the App developers applications and the iPhone’s and the iPad’s hardware components. The OS also contains all the newest and most effective Malware, Spyware, anti-Virus algorithms to protect and secure your private and confidential information housed within iPhones and iPads.

ğŸŽ Apple’s software engineers invest hundreds of thousands of hours, literally years, in creating the iOS. Then Apple releases iOS8 beta1 to the development community. For iOS8, iOS7, iOS6, the whole number OS versions, the beta version is released to at the WWDC Conferences held annually in mid-year. This year WWDC 2014 commenced June 2, 2014.

ğŸŽ WWDC attendees, App Developers, a thousand of Apple’s best Engineers, plus other highly respected software engineers, many of which test the features and operability of iOS8. For several weeks these App developers and Apple’s software engineers communicate back-and-forth with information on iOS8 beta1’s operability.

ğŸŽ Apple then STOPS the beta-testing of iOS8 beta1, employs the fixes & improvements identified, then publishes iOS8 beta2 for the Development Community to again examine and test. This multi-segmented beta-testing process may require 100-120 days, and may continue for 6, 7, or 8 beta versions, whatever number of beta-versions are necessary, until Apple is “satisfied” with iOS8’s performance, features, and operability. Only then will Apple release iOS8, the finished version, to the Public, and pre-install the OS8 into the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Air, and subsequent iDevices.

ğŸŽ In the event Apple, the Development community or the Pubic quickly discover iOS issues or glitches, Apple will employ the fixes and release iOS 8.0.2 for example, addressing the software-bugs. iPhones and iPads are very complex, sophisticated communications and computational hand-held devices, that utilize extremely advanced software to operate. And so this process of Apple hardware development and iOS development, leap-frog upon itself, year after year, in effort to provide to all of us iPhones and iPads, that change our lives, and the way we all communicate with each other globally.

ğŸŽ Apple created/acquired a huge Sapphire plant so that it could place razor-thin super-hard covers over their iPhones and the future iWatches. Recall that the only material harder than Sapphire is Diamond, next in line of hardness is way down the line. Imagine having a sapphire display cover on your iPhone. No More Screen “Protectors” ruining the beautiful display in exchange for preventing a scratch… Those days are OVER soon.

ğŸŽ Know this about Apple… Apple detests the notion of iPhone users covering their beautifully designed iPhones, which it so carefully crafted from the very finest materials, is just like “Grandma” covering her beautiful furniture with “plastic” to preserve the fine fabrics. Hopefully sapphire puts iPhone users concern for display-scratches to rest forever.

ğŸŽ My Personal Sapphire Experience. I’ve been wearing a quality RADO watch a several thousand dollar beauty, which has a convex sapphire crystal cover, that after 10 years of continuous use, has not any marks whatsoever… Take a look at this brief video clip showing the resiliency of a paper-thin sapphire display cover. http://youtu.be/5R0_FJ4r73s

ğŸŽ It’s highly likely that mobile power users will see the Larger Display model, plus 128GB Internal Storage capacity, plus Optical Image Stabilization, would all serve as a more capable, multi-use, overall appealing device.

iPhone 5, 6, Air

🔢 Apple iPhone 6 #20 Rumor Roundup Update
1⃣ Apple’s only 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 in full production
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 model offers 128GB Memory Option
5⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 Adds Sapphire Display + Altimeter Sensor
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera uses new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ Reports, leaks, and speculation about the next-generation iPhone are popping out thick and fast now. In the last 24-hours we’ve heard that Apple will be differentiating specifications between the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 models.

1⃣ iPhone 6 large-display 5.5″ model will incorporate InvenSense Optical Image Stabilization technology, but not in the 4.7″ model iPhone 6. We’ve also heard rumors suggesting that both iPhone 6 models will have 32GB and 64GB storge capabilities, suggesting that the entry-level 16GB storage choice may increased to 32GB.

2⃣ Chinese report is now citing sources that suggests that the larger 5.5″ model will make iPhone history by being the first model to offer a 128GB internal storage option.

3⃣ Optical Image Stabilization to be offered on the iPhone 6 5.5″ model.

4⃣ The introduction of two devices with differing display sizes is quite unique too. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Apple is planning on offering a larger disply device. However, the question is, how will Apple differentiate between the two hand-sets in terms of functionality, and prehaps price too.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 is Slated for 20 Million Units Sold in 2014 plus more than Three Times this figure for the new 4.7″ iPhone 6 version.

ğŸŽ Best Guess, New iPhone 6 may be Announced at Apple’s special Presentation Meeting of iPhone 6 held in San Francisco, California, Tuesday, September 9th, Announcing the iPhone 6, its features, and the iPhone 6 Release Date of Friday, September 19th. Invitations likely sent to the Media Tuesday, September 2.

ğŸŽ Here is the Round-up of the most recent rumors out there in cyberspace, from the most reliable supply-line overseas sources. Recall that rumors are not facts.

ğŸŽ Apple believes in Surprises. Apple does Not “Leak” Anything. However, many times “leaks” derived from staff at the components-supply-line, have proven to be more “accurate” than undocumented cyber-chatter. These are the Most Likely specifications of the iPhone 6:

ğŸŽ iPhone released with 2 display choices 4.7″ and 5.5″
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to be 7mm thin
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to have A8 Processor, faster more comprehensive functions
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 1704×960 pixel dimension, 1.636 Megapixels
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 356 dpi for 5″ display or 416 dpi for 4.7″ display
ğŸŽ iPhone to contain new Altimeter/Pressure sensor

ğŸŽ iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP Imager, up from 8MP
ğŸŽ iSight Camera with f2.0 Aperture, up from f2.2
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved image Stabilization
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved ultra-low-light performance
ğŸŽ iSight Video delivers 30fps with full 1920x1080p stabilized resolution

ğŸŽ Notice the graphic below displaying an abstract of the beta-iOS8 Code provided to the Developers at WWDC, which “signals” a new hardware component, an Atmospheric Barometric Pressure sensor, that does not presently exist in any of Apple’s existing iPhone or iPad devices.

ğŸŽ Typically we see new iPhone releases arriving early enough, so that the opening weekend sales occur during Apple’s 4th quarter of their fiscal year. Recall that Apple sold more than 5 million iPhone 5 units in 2012 in the opening weekend; then iPhone sales topped 9 million with the joint-release of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in 2013.

ğŸŽ September, 2014 seems to be a relatively good guess for the iPhone 6 release, likely a combined release of the 4.7″ and 5.5″ versions, which would compare to the previous combined release in 2013. Here is a summary of the recent rumors on this topic
ğŸŽ iNew iPhone launch as early as September – Nikkei
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in August or September – Steve Milunovich UBS via Barrons
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in the fall – Andy Hargreaves at Pacific Crest via Business Insider
ğŸŽ New iPhone scheduled for third quarter 2014 – ZDNet Korea
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in September – Ming-Chi Kuo via MacRumors
ğŸŽ New iPhone 6 in September – iFun
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in August or September – Economic Daily News
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in September – Industrial Commercial Times
ğŸŽ iOS 8 new operating system release-date which was confirmed at the WWDC 2014 Conference for the fall, 2014
ğŸŽ New iOS software previously has been accompanied with the release of new iPhone hardware iterations.

ğŸŽ Apple typically employs staggered-Country release dates. Major markets like the United States are typically at the front while smaller markets usually lag behind by several weeks and occasionally several months.

ğŸŽ The Headline image shows the relative sizes of the existing iPhone 5 with its 4″ display, shown with the new 4.7″ iPhone 6, and the new iPhone Air with it 5.5″ display. Therefore, by mid-September upgrading iPhone users moving up from the iPhone 4 and 5, and many Android folks, that have been waiting for Apple to deliver larger displays, will have three display sizes to pick from, all having finger-print security, great camera systems, huge inventory of Apps, plus the marvelous Apple ecosystem.

ğŸŽ The combination of factors
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 4
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 5
ğŸŽ Apple receiving Migration from Android due to iPhone’s Large Display offerings
ğŸŽ Apple will receive a “Tsunami of Sales” to the iPhone 6 in 2014 and 2015!

ğŸŽ Apple kept its cards close to its chest about the forthcoming iPhone 6 at this week’s WWDC keynote address; however, new information has arrived from China, suggesting that Apple has solved the battery issues that reportedly plagued production of its expected 5.5″ iPhone 6. Therefore Apple is on course to ship 20 millions of the iPhone Air handsets in 2014.

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – Its 90 Days and Counting, Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 version is Slated for 20 Million Units to Sell plus 4.7″ iPhone 6 to Sell 70 Million in 2014, Plus over 200 Million iPhones to Sell in 2015. This brings the total number of iOS iPhones and iPads to

ğŸŽ 90 Million iPhones to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 200 Million iPhones to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 30 Million iPads to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 60 Million iPads to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 475 Million iPhones and iPads sold as of June, 2014 equals
ğŸŽ 855 Million iPhones and iPads in Service Everywhere

ğŸŽ The news states that Apple is partnering with the China-based Sunwoda Electronics to manufacture batteries for all of these devices, where the battery costs roughly $6.40 each. Apple’s regular battery supplier, Dynapack, will also help fill the battery order.

ğŸŽ While both iPhone 6 variations are expected to ship at the same release-date, it is likely that you may have an easier time finding a 4.7″ iPhone 6 than with the 5.5″ big brother.

ğŸŽ Apple is reportedly planning to manufacture 80 million iPhone 6 handsets for 2014, meaning that the larger “phablet” may be significantly outnumbered by the 4.7″ model by a factor of 4:1. This exclusivity (combined with the larger size of the device) likely suggests that the iPhone Air may come at a higher price point, say a $100 premium. I’ll Take TWO please.

ğŸŽ The Images above and below are all the iPhone Models from the initial iPhone in 2007, to the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and the pro-forma for the iPhone 6 with the 4.7″ display.

ğŸŽ Apple Said to Have Enough Sapphire Glass for Production of Both iPhone 6 Models and iWatch in 2014. Apple reportedly will have enough sapphire glass production for both of its iPhone 6 models as well as the iWatch in 2014, based on the latest supply-chain check at the company’s sapphire-glass manufacturing partner GT Advanced done by analyst Matt Margolis at Seeking Alpha.

ğŸŽ As a result of the most recent supply chain, it is believed that the Mesa, Arizona huge sapphire operation facility, should have ample supply for the new iWatch, the 4.7″ iPhone plus the 5.5″ iPhone with full sapphire cover glass in 2014. Additionally, the maximum sapphire screen capacity of the Mesa, AZ facility may exceed 200 million units/year.

ğŸŽ In February, 2014 Margolis estimated that Apple would be gearing up for mass production of devices with sapphire displays, with equipment in the factory leading to a yield of anywhere from 100 to 200 million ~5″ sapphire displays. A yield of over 200 million sapphire displays as indicated by this latest report means that Apple could possibly produce more than enough sapphire displays for the 4.7″ iPhone 6, the 5.5″ iPhone 6 and the iWatch.

ğŸŽ Previous reports indicated that sapphire display supply constraints may force Apple to reserve the scratch resistant material for its larger iPhone models, with expenses perhaps driving up the retail price for consumers. Other reports suggested that initial sapphire production would target the iWatch instead of the iPhone 6, however the reported volume of raw material and equipment purchased would likely hint at bigger plans for sapphire display production.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 is expected to be released later this year, with the 5.5″ iPhone 6 launching near the end of 2014. In addition to a sapphire display, both phones will likely include a thinner profile, a faster A8 processor, and an improved camera. Meanwhile, the iWatch is expected to be revealed at an October event and may launch later that month.

ğŸŽ This Year’s amazing WWDC keynote address was the most significant product introduction since Apple unveiled the original iPad in 2010. But this time, the revolutionary, magical product wasn’t hardware, it was software, iOS8. While the techno-analysts are arguing about display sizes and CPU speed, Apple quietly has been working on those hardware issues;

ğŸŽ However, Apple has been spending considerable effort, tens of thousands of engineering hours, with integrating these iDevices with each other and MACs, so that there operate consistently, and interchangeably. Integrating… even to the extent of you being able to answer a telephone call on your MAC laptop, as it integrates with your iPhone using iOS8 and MAC using its new Yosemite operating system. Apple is integrating household electronics, security systems, locking systems, garage-door openers, thermostats, lighting systems… you imaging it Apple and their 3rd party developers are delivering.

ğŸŽ Imagine, saying to SIRI, I’m ready for Bed, please lock-up the Apartment, set the lighting, the alarms, the thermostat, and awaken me at 7am tomorrow morning.

ğŸŽ We have NEST which is an automation thermostat that learns our heating and cooling desires, operates with our iPads and iPhones, and saves us about 25% on our electricity, as it “knows” when we are Away and when we Arrive, making Climate Control settings for us, after about a week of learning.

ğŸŽ If coming home early, I can open the NEST App on my iPhone, and start cooling the Apartment as its WiFi integrated, secure and accessible from across the street or cross country. Forgot to turn-off the Heat or the A/C, rushing to the Air Port, no problem, one can access NEST from the Airline Terminal telling it that we’ll be AWAY for 5 days. I’ve written a detailed Article on NEST… just search for NEST at the top of this site.

ğŸŽ Reported last week, Apple has engaged over 200 Chinese Security personnel to investigate and prosecute all the “leaks” that have been originating from Apple’s supply-line regarding the new iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ There are “signals” that lead me to deduce that there may be major Apple product Announcements at WWDC, other than, nifty Apps, the new Apple iOS8 operating software, and the latest and greatest for MACs’ operating system.

ğŸŽ Firstly, this is the first year that WWDC 2014 broadcasted via live-streaming at 1pm eastern time on Monday, June 2. Here is the link for a replay of the Keynote Address from the Moscone Center.

https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2014/

The iPhone 6 really won’t be too much of a surprise whenever it’s finally revealed since we’ve been seeing leaks showing us its shape and size for the past several weeks.

Apple may Announce both iPhone 6 and iPhone Air at one Media Event, however the iPhone 6 may be ship a week or two earlier than the iPhone Air.

📲 Apple is BLOCKING out days in September at all its USA retail stores, apparenty in preparation of New Product release(s). Some secrets just cannot be kept, as too many folks, in too many locations trumps iPhone secrecy. As we get closer to the September release Weekend (typically Friday, Saturday, Sunday) we’ll know more, for all those that are Chomping at the Bit for the latest and greatest technology device, self included.

📲 Jim Wilson’s blog is FAU4U2 on WordPress.com. The Blog link is: http://tiny.cc/e7pwfx We’re proud of the growing number of over 54,000 readers, who stay connected regarding Apple’s iOS personal communications devices, accessories, Apps, and other technology topics. FAU4U2 was created several years ago to provide a forum to answer the many questions that many FAU students throw at me 24/7 in this connected world we live in.

📲 My view, when in a classroom setting, whether as 5th grader, or in Graduate school, on Campus, or otherwise, if a few students have questions, there are likely many more students that just don’t ask, too shy, afraid of asking a “stupid question.” No questions are stupid questions. Therefore, when I get a few questions on a similar topic, I’ll likely create a blog-page on FAU4U2 giving a core response with some related information and research, as there may be millions of folks thinking about that topic.

📲 FAU4U2 Statistics: Presently our readership as of 2012/05/28 is 54,000 from over 30 Countries, reading 498 Articles, housed within 74 categories, marked with 324 Topic Tags for a more refined searching result, 816 Shares, and followed by 20 other blogs. A majority of our readers are from the USA, United Kingdom, Denmark, Netherlands, Australia, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, Mexico, Ukraine, Canada, Indonesia, Estonia, and Italy, listed in order of frequency of the articles read.

📲 Presently in the USA, 54% of all American smartphone owners have iPhones, the remaining smartphone users, the 46% smartphone users, are grouped together (the 12 brands and models of Androids, Blackberry, Google, Samsung, HTC, Motorola). Apple’s market-share in North America is growing. Industry experts expect, with the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone Air, Apple’s market share for their iPhones will grow at an accelerated rate.

📲 Apple iPhone “supply-line” chatter is hot and heavy as the next weeks speed forward. Combine this chatter with several layers of (Chinese) Mandarin translation, it becomes difficult to differentiate between “release date” with “announcement date” and availability. Expressed above is the best we could surmise.

📲 Virtually all of the rumors and schematics pertaining to Apple’s next iPhone center on its ultra-thin design and two screen sizes: 4.7″ and 5.5″ however, up until now we’re kept in the dark as to what screen resolution the larger 5.5-incher (the iPhone Air) might have.

📲 Recall none of these figures, dialog, and proforma-images, comes from Apple officially, but from “snitches” in its supply-line. Of course its no surprise that Apple totally ignores all these “news” reports and rumors.

📲 Other than leaked supply-line secrets, punishable by termination and prosecution by Apple, everything displayed and discussed is conjecture. However, since there are such a vast number of enterprises, engineers, and factory workers involved with the fabrication and assembly of the new iPhone models, whispers arriving from several directions that have a common-thread, could lead an observer to deductions as assembled in this article.

📲 iPhone 6 Release Date: Until Announced, Apple is silent. However, its hard to keep this date a secret with over 400 retail stores. These stores are beginning to “Black-Out” vacation days in September, generally a good sign that Apple requires “all hands on deck” for a new Apple product release. In the next few weeks, these retail store employee black-out dates will be fine-tuned.

📲 iPhone Air, according to new reports the 5.5″ iPhone may have a screen resolution of 1,704-by-960 pixels, a marked improvement over the current 4″ display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c.

📲 iPhone Air’s 1,704-by-900 pixel resolution is essentially a tripled of the “base display resolution” of 568-by-320 pixels. Before the iPhone 5, the iPhone 4 introduced the “Retina Display” representing a resolution of 960-by-640 pixels, which itself is a pixel-doubled 480-by-320 resolution found on the non-Retina 3.5″ original iPhone and the iPhone 3G/3Gs.

📲 Industry experts and analysts are anticipating huge release results, now that Apple is finally delivering LARGER display iPhones. Accordingly the prognosticators are also predicting an large influx of Android users that have been waiting to join the Apple EcoSystem, now that the display size issue is being resolved.

📲 Apple’s Retina Display: Apple’s retina display signifies a range of resolutions depending on the distance from ones Eyes the display is viewed. The human Eye is an organic camera system contain an auto-focus lens which focuses the subject light onto a dense-quilt of photo-sensitive living biological “Cone & Rod” cells. This organic array of specialized living cells, “attached” to the back-wall of the interior of one’s Eye is called the Retina.

📲 Ophthalmologists, have determined if one is reading a book, picture, iPad, iPhone about 14″ away from your Eyes, and if the content of the book’s font characters or pictures are comprised of picture-elements, pixels, the human Eye is not capable if distinguishing individual pixels from each other, if they are packed at a density of 300 pixels per inch, 300 ppi. Recall that 300 ppi means that there are 90,000 pixels within each square inch. The current 4″ diagonal display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c has a pixel density of 326 ppi.

📲 I’m a Believer – Apple is reported to have placed their iPhone 6 order for 90 million units! Looks like FOXCON is going to be very, very busy this year. Recall there are over 475,000,000 iPhones in circulation – there will be a huge number of UpGrades this year, plus a Large number of Migrations from Android to iPhone 6.

📲 Q1, 2014 Apple sold just under 50 million iPhones, therefore ordering 90 million units is giving Apple just a head-start for a what the industry and Apple believes will be a huge iphone 6 launch. In looking at the schematics and the prototypes constructed, Personally, I’m upgrading to the iPhone Air.

📲 The iPhone with its Apps transform the smartphone into a valued business tool, scanner, portable fax, communications device, eMail, Text messaging, and of course a Phone. It will be interesting if Logitech develops one of their UltraThin Keyboard Covers for the iPhone Air, as we both have the Logitech keyboard covers for our iPad minis.

ğŸŽ Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, He is in it, to Win It, Period! This intensity and commitment is terrific for Apple product users, as we are all going to receive better products, and great for Apple’s share holders.

ğŸŽ Speaking of Apple Shareholders. At Apple’s recent quarterly Conference Call, Tim Cook announced that it had a record profit Quarter, the company will be forward splitting its sharers 7-for-1, meaning if you presently own 100 AAPL shares, June 9th Apple will be sending you another 600 shares. This brings the present (6/4/2014) share-price of $644/share for example, to about $92/share, making its shares more “affordable” to an expanded audience of smaller investors.

ğŸŽ Take a look at the Graphic of iPhone Sales. Lets focus on the period of Q1+Q2, 2010 to Q1+Q2, 2014, in this 4 year period iPhone sales grew from 16 million iPhones in 6 months to over 100 million in 6 months. Look at the Slope of the Green trend-line.

ğŸŽ The Line is pointed UP, significantly Up. It does not take a PhD in mathematics and statistics to “extrapolate” what the future quarters may look like, if the the past trends have any possible “predictability” for what Apple’s iPhone future sales may be. No one knows for sure, but my Guess is Apple’s iPhone sales will continue to increase. Likely because Apple continues to reinvent the SmartPhone with innovations that people want.

ğŸŽ Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says, Apple is planning to debut two new iPhone models with two distinct screen sizes in 2014, an unprecedented move for Apple that traditionally has shied away from screen size wars. However a very large survey of iPhone owners, over 60% of their installed-base desires larger display sizes. The graphic of an iPhone may depict the ICON Layout for the new iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ Aside from obvious size differences, the top-of-the-line 5.5″ model will sport a high-resolution display of 1,920-by-1,080 pixels, which represents the same resolution as your large Flat-screen HDTV, translates to 401 pixels per inch, (ppi) in the palm of your hand. The 4.7″ iteration will use a 1,334-by-750 pixel-display to maintain scalability with existing iPhone Apps, representing a pixel density of 326 ppi, meeting or exceeding the “Retina” resolution, Apple set several years ago.

ğŸŽ Both handsets will use Apple’s next-generation A8 system-on-chip with 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM, low temperature polysilicon in-cell touch panels and Touch ID fingerprint security.

ğŸŽ Importantly, a near-field communications chip-set (NFC) and a metal casing are also part of the build. An 10-megapixel rear-facing camera with a f/2.0 aperture is expected, though Apple may improve the camera system to include an improved electronic or optical image stabilization to improve low-light performance, an exciting feature new to the smart-phones, taking the “camera shake” for low light “party” photography.

ğŸŽ As to aesthetics, the iPhones’ bezels are said to be 10% to 20% narrower than the current iPhone 5s, while thinness is pegged at 7.0 millimeters. Kuo also says Apple will move the location of the Top of the iPhone’s sleep/wake button to the right-side of the iPhone, to facilitate one-handed operation. This button-relocation may indicate a new feature that requires frequent pressing of the power button for other functions. Good we could actually need one more button, to eliminate too many soft-menus on the display.

ğŸŽ While the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be within Apple’s guidelines of one-handed operation, Kuo believes Apple may position from a product line-up perspective the 5.5″ version as a higher-end iPhone Air (Phablet) perhaps with an additional $100 premium. I’ll go for it.

ğŸŽ Kuo also believes the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be Apple’s main driver of handset sales in late 2014 and full-year shipments could exceed 60 million units. My guess it will be double or triple this estimate.

ğŸŽ The 5.5″ iPhone Air model may cannibalize some of the sales of the iPad mini, but if the company can marginally reduce the price-tag of its iPad mini, its iPad line-up should remain strong.

ğŸŽ IMHO, its better to cannibalize the iPad mini to yourself, than to be cannibalized by the Competitors, by not having the 5.5″ iPhone Phablet, as has happened over the last 18 months. This is probable the only “mistake” IMHO, Apple has encountered recently. However, who am I to say that Apple made a “misstep” when Apple is delivering 200 million iPhones/year currently. But, what’s not to like with another 30 million units sold.

ğŸŽ We may likely see a terrific migration from Android ➡️ Apple this year and next, perhaps at a rate of a 35% shift ➡️ Apple, with these two larger display choices in Apple’s iPhone line-up. Presently, Android users are migrating ➡️ Apple’s way at a rate of over 20% or more.

ğŸŽ Kuo expects both iPhone 6 models to hit store shelves in the 3rd Quarter of 2014, with Apple keeping the iPhone 5s and 5c on board as mid-tier and low-tier offerings. Due to the expanded handset lineup, the iPhone 4S and 4 will reach end-of-life in 2014.

ğŸŽ Details on Apple’s plans for the 2014 iPhone lineup were published on Tuesday by Japanese blog Macotakara. Citing a trusted source, “Apple has designed two larger iPhone models, sporting 4.7″ and 5.5″ displays, which are final candidates for launch in 2014.”

ğŸŽ Apple’s New iPhone 6 is without a doubt one of the most hotly anticipated smartphone launches of 2014. A dozen or so independent reports suggest that the handset will feature a new larger 4.7″ display and a fresh new design that is thinner than ever. The iPhone 6 is also expected to be accompanied by a new iPhone phablet that will include a 5.5″ screen to help attract new business over from the Android camp.

ğŸŽ Another day, another set of iPhone 6 rumors trickles out from the East Asia. According to the latest report, Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 is ready to enter its mass production phase in May, 2014, with 90 Million Units ordered. The timing would align perfectly with a launch in the 3rd Quarter of 2014. This timing is as expected by most of the other industry watchers. Interestingly, this new report suggests that Apple’s second new iPhone for 2014, the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ Display may be in mass-production until later in the 3rd quarter, 2014 which obviously suggests that it won’t debut until sometime later in 2014.

ğŸŽ We encourage Apple to release both iPhone 6 Models, the 4.75″ and the 5.5″ displays simultaneously. There is such a huge expectation that Apple will be coming out with a “Phablet” (a term Apple despises). If Apple delays the iPhone Air, it may significantly erode the launch of iPhone 6, folks waiting to see both devices, so to choose between the two. Personally, I would wait, and would recommend to my friends, to delay updating until both are announced and visualized. It would be better to delay the iPhone 6, so that it is released with the iPhone Air, than to bifurcate Apple’s iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ According to a report relayed by EMSOne, Taiwan-based Industrial and Commercial Times claims that Apple’s manufacturing partners will begin mass-producing the new iPhone 6 in July. With three months of lead time, that certainly could align well with a late September launch that keeps Apple’s fall iPhone launch pattern alive.

ğŸŽ Interestingly, however, the report claims that Apple’s larger iPhone Phablet may not enter mass-production until sometime in September. If accurate, the device may not debut alongside the iPhone 6, but instead perhaps in later 2014 or early 2015. Remember all these remarks are rumors and “deductions” from supply-line insiders.

ğŸŽ Despite the potential late-start for Apple’s iPhone Phablet production, Industrial and Commercial Times claims that both new iPhones will launch sometime in the fourth quarter this year.

ğŸŽ Apple’s new iPhone 6 is expected to feature an entirely new design with a 4.7″ display, a thinner housing and an upgraded processor. The iPhone phablet is expected to sport a similar design with a larger 5.5″ screen.

ğŸŽ If the reports we have been reading, even come close to representing the handsets Apple actually launches in the 3rd quarter of 2014, we may expect APPLE to crush the sales records the Company set in the fall of 2013, when the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C debuted together, Apple’s first announcement of 2-model on the same Day.

ğŸŽ Recall Apple sold 9 Million iPhones on the opening weekend, 50% greater sales than its previous release weekend of 6 million units. Remember about 55% of All American smartphone users are carrying Apple iPhones.

ğŸŽ Total iPhone sales since its beginning in July, 2007 is presently in excess of 475,000,000 units, Add to this 175,000,000 iPads, the total Apple iOS devices in use equates to roughly 650,000,000. Extend this figure to year end, 12/31/2014, Apple could be sitting with 800,000,000 iPhones and iPads in circulation.. sometime in 2015 Apple may be crossing this 1,000,000,000 threshold (yes that’s One-Billion) globally.

ğŸŽ IMHO, this is exactly what the iPhone Market needs, two serious screen sizes to choose between. The choice of either the 4.7″ display or the 5.5″ display will be perfect Selections to choose from, and will certainly silence the Apple critics for not having a choice of displays. Assuming Apple retains the current Model iPhone 5S, with the New Models, The iphone 6 with its 4.7″ display and the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ display.

Apple offering Four iPhones Models, covering a variety of Display Sizes

ğŸŽ iPhone 4S… 3.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… 99¢
ğŸŽ iPhone 5S… 4.0″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $99
ğŸŽ iPhone 6….. 4.7″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $199
ğŸŽ iPhone Air… 5.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $299

ğŸŽ Lets assume for the moment that Macotakara Publication is accurate regarding the two new display sizes. Lets further assume that Jimmy’s subsidized price “quesstimates” will range from 99¢ for the 3.5″ iPhone 4S to $299 for the 5.5″ iPhone Air, as shown above.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 Rumor Round-Up ⬆️ A Really Big Launch in 2014 ⬆️ Initial Supply Order 90 Million Units ⬆️ 2 Display Sizes ⬆️ 4.7″ & 5.5″ Displays ⬆️ 5G WiFi Connectivity ⬆️ 3 New Sensors: Humidity-Temperature-Atmospheric-Pressure ⬆️ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed

ğŸŽ The Graphic Above: Based upon leaked schematics (blue-line graphic below) discovered by Macotakara of the forthcoming 4.7″ and 5.5″ variants of the iPhone 6, Nowherelse teamed up with concept designer extraordinaire Martin Hajek to create what may be the most plausible look (graphic above) at what Jony Ive’s next iPhone design would look like yet,” John Brownlee reports for Cult of Mac.

ğŸŽ “All the proportions here are perfect: although it features a larger profile, a super thin design, and an edge-to-edge display, the design still features a beautiful internal symmetry that seems worthy of Apple,” Brownlee writes. “There are some changes: the edges are curved, more organic, and the volume buttons have been unified into a single rocker, but otherwise, it looks like an evolution of the current iPhone 5s. Which is exactly what the iPhone 6 would look like.” The Graphic below is the “leaked schematic blue-print.”

ğŸŽ The BIG Question is: Will iPhone Up-Graders pay-up $299 for the base model of the 5.5″ iPhone Air; Plus paying an added $100 for each step for 32GB, 64GB, 128GB Memory upgrades.

ğŸŽ What’s Jimmy Think: From my perspective, and knowing how valuable my iPhone is as a communications device, and the added utility of the iPhone, as a business tool, thanks to the 100+ amazing Apps that I use frequently, I may be “pleased” to pay $500, subsidized, for the 5.5″ iPhone Air with 64GB of storage. (The iPhone Air name is also an assumption).

ğŸŽ Lets look at “JimW’s iPhone 5S” Usage, I have about 22.9 GB remaining of the 64GB iPhone. It could be assumed with the iPhone Air’s larger screen, it may double as “my miniature iPad mini” perhaps needing to step-up the onboard storage to 128GB, matching my iPad mini’s capacity. Unfortunately, one cannot upgrade later, so this is “a one-time decision” of paying-up that extra $100 for Twice the storage, going from 64GB to 128GB, assuming this choice is available. Since I have 128GB on my iPad-Mini-Retina, I’d likely keep the storage on both devices uniform.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 should be a Really Big Launch in 2014 with Two Display Sizes, this quinella of iPhones will be Longer and Wider, Diagonal Measure: 4.7″ and 5.5″ Display Sizes ~ 5G WiFi Connectivity ~ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed ~ Three New Sensors measuring ambient Temperature, Humidity and Atmospheric Pressure.

ğŸŽ iPhone reports have it, that the 2 New iPhones may have internal components to measure Temperature, Atmospheric Pressure and Humidity sensors. It will be interesting how Apple’s engineers “shields” these three sensors from the internal ambient-effects of the warm electronics and that of the liON Polymer battery, as the iPhone’s circuitry operates and the battery discharges, which tend to become warm…

ğŸŽ iPhone Release Schedules. Historically, Apple released its original iPhone in June, 2007 with over a million units sold in its opening weekend. The next iPhone iteration, the iPhone 3G was released in July, 2008. (Notice that we’re focusing your attention to the “Major” releases, not the interim “S” releases).

ğŸŽ The next major iPhone release was June, 2010, with its iPhone 4, the date and model Marilyn and I bought our first iPhones. Subsequently, the iPhone 5 was released in September, 2012 with 6 million units sold in its opening weekend. The “September” release month was somewhat “off schedule” from the other June timings. This 90 delay delay, may have occurred due to some quality-control and/or supply-line issues, pushing back the release a few months; Total guesswork on my part.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is upon us reportedly, and interested folks are wondering when will the iPhone 6 be Announced and Released. My guess, Apple may return to the June, 2014 timing schedule, so that Apple has more time for the Sales of this likely “Block Buster” release with its reported larger 4.7″ brilliant display.

ğŸŽ I’ve predicted that Apple may have a 12 million iPhone weekend, with iPhone 6 new Two-Sizes Release. Also reported, Apple placed its initial order for the iPhone 6, ordered 90 million units from their experienced Apple supplier, Foxconn. Now That’s Confidence.

ğŸŽ The secondary questions, will Apple release Two Phones, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone Air on the same Day, similar to the release of iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C in September, 2013.

ğŸŽ These new models are reportedly expected to have similar button shapes for volume and mute as the iPhone 5c, as well as the same rounded back edges. In addition, it was said that the holes on the bottom of the handset for speaker and microphone will also follow the design established by the iPhone 5C.

ğŸŽ In looking at the leaked blue-prints, for the iPhone 6, the rounded edges give an appearance of the iPad mini, but thinner, without the angled-edges of the present iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ The larger 5.5″ model is said to be 7.5 millimeters thick, which would be the same as the iPad Air. This thinness would reportedly may require the rear iSight camera to protrude slightly from the case, much like with the fifth-generation iPod nano. Last year the Apple had to revise its “thinness” from 7.0mm to 7.5mm to avoid the slight protrusion.

ğŸŽ Macotakara, sourced for the story above, has a respectable track record in “predicting” Apple’s future iPhone plans. Last year, Macotakara revealed
(A) the 2013 iPhone lineup would come in a new range of colors, and it was also
(B) the first to claim that the iPhone 5s would feature a dual LED flash for more natural looking photos, and was
(C) the first to state that the new pill-shaped flash module would be accompanied by a
(D) the circular rear-facing microphone located between the flash and the iSight camera lens.

ğŸŽ The anticipated larger iPhone is rumored to be a high-end iPhone 5c, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will continue to have a plastic back, as the iPod nano achieves its colors with anodized aluminum. The new models are apparently a cross between the design of the iPhone 5c and the seventh-generation iPod nano. According to the source, the new larger iPhone won’t be a replacement for the existing iPhone 5c, but will be akin to a higher-end model.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is going be a really Big launch this year. Apple will finally offer, its reported, a bigger display to compete with the likes of the Galaxy S5 and other flagship Android phones and phablets.

ğŸŽ It’s not that Apple’s iPhone underperforms in any measure, its strictly that 69% of Existing iPhone Users desire a Larger Display, self included. In anticipation of this huge anticipated demand, Apple has reportedly ordered 90 million iPhone 6 units from Foxconn.

ğŸŽ News is picking up momentum and spreading like a viral disease, as a new report indicates that the iPhone 5C’s sales failure could move-up the Release Date of the iPhone 6, to a date earlier in 2014, than initially anticipated. Of course, only Apple knows, everyone else is guessing, and extrapolating.

ğŸŽ One thing for sure, Apple will release the iPhone 6, when its ready for a huge release. Since Apple’s release of the 5S and 5C simultaneously with a 9 Million release-weekend, Apple will surely be capable of having 15 Million of the iPhone 6 models available for its opening Weekend.

ğŸŽ According to the Australian rendition of the International Business Times, there’s a brand new report that has come fast and furious out of DigiTimes, indicating that there are more than a million iPhone 5C handsets sitting on retail and ISP’s shelves the around the world world, where Apple is having trouble designing a plan to move these units economically for the delivery source and Apple’s balance sheet.

ğŸŽ As noted by IBT… “Some consumers believed iPhone 5C failed to prove that it is a cheap iOS device. But the tables could turn when carriers and retailers drop the existing prices to clear the remaining inventory once the iPhone 6 will be released.”

ğŸŽ The 5C issue (this is a media-invented issue) could spell big trouble for Apple if the iPhone 5C proves to be a hamper in their profit-stride and the “Wall Street Expectations game.” One Duck writes an absurd story and the rest of the Quacks repeat it. (Take a look at an Article I’ve written regarding what I believe is an iPhone 5C success story http://tiny.cc/e5jhdx) However, Apple could “make up for the 5C matter” with very strong quarterly sales by the release of an Exciting iPhone 6, particularly if Apple gets to or Close to a 5″ Display combined with the very successful and popular golden iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ iPhone is due to be released later this year. The iPhone 6 seemingly will be packed with amazing features that will make it fly-off the shelves.

ğŸŽ Several innovative features are likely to set-up the iPhone 6 as the new Leader in the smartphones market, significantly outperforming (Galaxy’s S5 a similar dud as was Apple’s 5C) along any other releases from its competitors coming out the next few months.

ğŸŽ Since even Samsung being disappointed with the apparent “flop” of the Galaxy S5, this leaves the “Door Wide Open” for Apple to capture a relatively large number of folks ready to migrate from Android.

ğŸŽ Rumors have it that Apple is going for a wider and bigger display for the new iPhone 6. But that’s not the only thing that’s changing. Apple now has a new patent called ‘Systems and Methods for Preventing Light Guide Plate Scratching Artifacts‘ which leads us to believe that the iPhone 6 display technology will be truly innovative.

ğŸŽ Apple has stated that iPhone 6 will probably have “the most gorgeous display rendering ever in a mobile device.” Not only will it look modern and chic but the screen may come with a neat protection layer.

ğŸŽ It looks like the Retina display panel will be replaced with Quantum Dot technology which will come with sharper, crisper colors and improved brightness renditions.

ğŸŽ Knowing how important battery life is, apparently, iPhone 6 will come equipped with a battery that not only will it last longer and give users longer talk-time, but will also feature a source of energy that will replenish its electrical power very quickly.

ğŸŽ There have also been rumors about wireless charging, no need to elaborate on what a great feature would that be and how iPhone 6 would become the public’s favorite. Wireless Charging typically means that the device (the iPhone) would have a flat-thin-coil inside the rear cover.

ğŸŽ If you placed the iPhone onto a charger-platform, alternating current is electro-magnetically transmitted through the rear cover, “exciting” the internal flat-thin-coil. This energy is then converted into DC, direct current, which is managed and stored into the LiON battery. You may recall the Palm-PRE had this capability a decade ago. The charging platform and the iPhone could have internal ceramic magnets to that the iPhone is held in position on the “charger.”

ğŸŽ Wi-Fi signal improvements with the famous 802.11ac (a/k/a 5G WiFi) offering break-neck speed, and longer connectivity range, is rumored to be featured on the new iPhone 6. If this is true, users will be able to download or stream HD films in a matter of seconds even for very large HDTV video movie files. Gigabit speed equates to roughly 250,000,000 bYtes per second.

ğŸŽ In perspective, a typical 8 mega-pixel camera captures that have a file size of 5 Mega bYtes, thats a 5,000,000 byte file size. An iPhone that can transmit or receive data at Gigabit speeds, means that one could upload (or download) 50 full resolution images in ONE second. One one could download a full-length, 2 hour High Definition Movie in about 15 seconds.

ğŸŽ By design, 802.11ac is intended to operate only in the 5 GHz band. This avoids much of the interference at 2.4 GHz, including Bluetooth headsets, microwave ovens, and provides a strong incentive for users to upgrade their mobile devices to be dual band so that the 5 GHz band is more universally usable. This choice also streamlines the IEEE process by avoiding the possibility of contention between 802.11 and 802.15 proponents.

ğŸŽ Asus RT-AC66U 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless, at $189 these new Routers handle 5G. RT-AC66U offers very fast Wi-Fi on the 5GHz frequency band, both with Wireless-N clients and AC clients. In fact it’s the fastest of the few 802.11ac routers currently available on the market. The router also has very good range and its USB ports provide more than just the support for external storage and printers.

ğŸŽ To put Apple’s reported order in perspective, the Apple sold 51 million iPhones during its fiscal quarter ending Dec. 28th, 2013. Apple is anticipating a very large a leap in sales.

ğŸŽ The iPhone 6 may be fitted with a super-strong Sapphire crystal display, a more advanced camera, lens, image stabilization, an f2.0 aperture, and perhaps wireless charging. In addition, there are rumors that the iPhone 6 will feature a faster new A8 chip with a quad-core CPU and graphics.

ğŸŽ According to a Citigroup Global-Markets analyst, cited by the Commercial Times in China, Apple’s smartphone shipments are expected to rise a whopping 23% in 2014, compared to 13% increase in sales last year.

ğŸŽ IMHO if Apple delivers the iPhone 6 with a Display that contains a meaningful increase to 4.75" or 5.0" Apple iPhone will sell in huge numbers.

ğŸŽ Overall, analysts in IDC predict that smartphone growth will slow somewhat in 2014 to 19.3% growth, down from 39.2% growth factor in 2013.

ğŸŽ The reason: average smartphone prices keep dropping, as demand shifts to China. In other words, the iPhone 6 will likely be a huge seller, helping it stay ahead of the industry average in terms of growth and profitability.

ğŸŽ Note that Galaxy S5 was a big flop, disappointing users, investors, and Samsung, as demand for Samsung’s newest offering was not very exciting. If the iPhone goes to a 5" display its Demand will Explode.

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release April, 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, (I sold my iPad 4 to Gazelle.com) applied the proceeds to purchase the "mini" with 128GB of Storage, AT&T connectivity, plus added Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover, and an ACME MADE San Francisco rubberized thin slip-over protective case. This thin package actually fits into my trousers pocket.

Everything You Need to Know about Apple’s Tuesday Media Event in 9⃣ Days to Announce 2⃣ new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L ~ Event Date 9/9/2014 @ 1pm Est ~ iPhones Released Friday September 19, 2004 @ 8AM Eastern ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

1409502854.jpg

ğŸŽ Battle of the iPhone 6 Rumors is in Full Bloom and Contradiction, now that we are just 9 days before Apple’s Media Event of September 9th.

ğŸŽ Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap has been blighted with component issues, manufacturing problems, quality control, relating to the production of the iPhone 6 and its sibling iPhone 6L with its 5.5″ display.

ğŸŽ Everything You Need to Know about Apple’s Tuesday Media Event in 9 Days to Announce 2 new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L ~ Event Date 9/9/2014 @ 10 AM Pacific ~ iPhones Released Friday September 19, 2004 @ 8AM Eastern


ğŸŽ What will we See and Hear at Apple’s 9/9/2014 Media Event at the Flint Center to be held at 10am Pacific. BTW the event will be held at the FLINT CENTER, the venue on the De Anza College campus also is a change for Apple. Apple has tended to hold most device launches at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco or on Apple’s campus in Cupertino.

ğŸŽ Apple also has important history with the Flint Center. Steve Jobs unveiled the first MAC Computer there in 1984, and Jobs also showed off iMACs at the Flint Center in 1998 and 1999. The Flint Center can accommodate a significantly larger crowd (over 2500) than the recent venues Apple has used, further indicating the event’s importance to the company.

ğŸŽ What to expect from Apple’s CEO Tim Cook annlounced at the Flint Center Media Event on 9/9/2014

1⃣ iPhone 6 with larger displays of 4.7″ and iPhone 6L 5.5″
2⃣ iPhone 6 to have Faster A8 Processor
3⃣ iPhone 6 to have More RAM memory
4⃣ iPhone 6 to have More Storage to 128GB
5⃣ iPhone 6 to have Sapphire glass display screen
6⃣ iPhone 6 Camera increases to 10MB to 13MP pixels
7⃣ iPhone 6 Camera to have OIS, optical image stabilization
8⃣ iPhone 6 Camera to have Faster f2.0 Lens
9⃣ iWatch 1 Saved for October Media Event, to not destract from the exciting new iPhones

ğŸŽ We have been noticing online “mock-ups” of these two new models, borne from schematics apparently captured from FOXcomm computer screens. It seemed to us that the iPhone 6L looked much larger than the iPhone 6. This motivated me to make white-board cut-outs for
📱 iPhone 6L measuring 158mm by 78mm
📱 iPhone 6 measuring 138mm by 67mm
📱 iPhone 5 measuring 123mm by 58mm

ğŸŽ FOXconn’s computer screen Schematics. This week we completed the white-board cutouts from the dimensions shown on FOXconn’s computer screens. I did not take time creating home page screen, as we were singularly interested in the feel of the two devices, their length, width and holding both side-by-side. Additionally I was interested in holding the iPhone 6 and 6L Samples next to several other competitors smart phones, such as Samsung and LG offeerings.

ğŸŽ CHOPS Lobster Bar is quality 5⭐️ down town Boca Raton establishment that Marilyn and I frequent localally. The bar has 16 seats, serves a quality clientele as the dining room enjoys $100/person average dinners, tax, title, and tip. At the Bar, all the folks carry the best smart phones, with about 75% or more carrying iPhones. I’ve read that Apple enjoys about 54% market share in North America. My observations in south Florida see a significantly higher iPhone share.

ğŸŽ Compare iPhone 6 and 6L with Samsung, LG and other 4.7″ to 5.5″ display smart phones. Having handled the two Mock-Ups iPhone 6 & 6L, they both have a nice feel in the hands, having the same aspect ratios of Apple’s iPhone 5 and 5S, meaning that ratio of the smartphone’s Length to its Width is equal.

ğŸŽ We focused firstly on the 6L as all the “Talking Heads” have been remarking about the “huge” Phablets. We were actually surprised with apple’s choice of the iPhone 6L, 158mm by 78mm with a Thinner/Longer shape. It feels good in the hands, and we have smaller hands than many. The iPhone 6 measuring 138mm by 67mm is a modest increases from the iPhone 5’s measurement of 123 mm by 58mm.

ğŸŽ Comparing the iPhone 6L to the LG and Samsung Phablets, which have 5.5″ to 5.7″ displays, was surprising. The new iPhone 6L is definitely “Thinner” then the Phablet competition, making it more confortable to hold in the hand. Samsung’s and LG’s were “Fatter” and harder to hold. Since Marilyn and I do a lot of things with our iPhone 5’s other than Phone Calls, we are very interested in the iPhone 6L for its larger display offering greater utility while web Browsing, crafting emails, Phonograph, Image editing…

ğŸŽ Holding the two white-board “samples” in hand, made it easier to decide which model is best for Marilyn and myself. Before handling the cut-outs, Marilyn was satisfied with the 4.7″ choice. After holding the two White-Board cut-outs, Marilyn changed her choice for the Larger iPhone 6L. Therefore once Apple makes the new iPhone’s available on-Line, we will pre-order two iPhone 6L, Marilyn’s with 64BG storage, as she is almost full with the 32GB iPhone 5; I will upgrade to 128GB storage as I am using most of the 64GB on my iPhone 5.

ğŸŽ Surveys taken by the major Cellular Providers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) using a large customer-base of iPhone and Android users, indicate as Apple releases the anticipated large display iPhones, over 35% of existing Android mostly Samsung Galaxy, HTC, and LG users would migrate to Apple’s New iPhone 6 and 6L.

ğŸŽ The three highest ranking reasons (by AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile subscribers) for migrating to Apple’s new iPhones
1⃣ Desire for Larger smart phone Display
2⃣ Android system is too Vulnerable to Virus and Malware attack
3⃣ Apple iPhone iOS system perceived much safer against Viruses and Malware attack

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 ~ iPhone 6L, 23nd Rumor Roundup
1⃣ Apple is 9 Days & Counting
2⃣ Announce TWO new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L
3⃣ Media Event to be held Tuesday 9/9/2014
4⃣ Sapphire Displays are the Question
5⃣ Apple knows that the #1 Repair Service item for iPhone is Broken Screens
6⃣ Adding a sapphire “glass” to the iPhone eliminates about 85% of the current broken-display issues
8⃣ Sapphire having a hardness of 9
9⃣ Diamond has a hardness of 10
🔟 Gorilla Glass at 5.5 on the MOHS Scale of Mineral Hardness.

ğŸŽ Presently, there are multiple-sources claiming to have inside knowledge (don’t they always) of Apple’s plans speculating that the larger “phablet” handset will be delayed. However, this time writers have cited sources, suggesting that the new iPad Air v2 and the iPad mini v3 may also be pushed back along with the larger iPhone due to supply-line issues. This chatter is illogical. I don’t “buy it.” Apple is not going to bifurcate their iPhone 6 sales, and ruin their opening weekend extravaganza, with the delay of the most sought after Large Display iPhone…

ğŸŽ This is we Know
▶️ Apple is the only source in the know and
▶️ Apple does not talk
▶️ Those that don’t know, are doing all the talking…

ğŸŽ Camp Alpha, says that there are not enough “leaked” component images for the iPhone 6L, therefore its release may be delayed until October, 2014. Since there are not enough “leaked” images for the iPhone 6L, therefore it may not exist is laughable. What the folks receiving the “leaks” are not focusing on, the internals for the two iPhone models are basically the same, except for the iPhone Container, the internal connecting cables, the internal Battery and the Display itself.

ğŸŽ Camp Beta, says that the main circuit boards for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L are principally similar. The “leaked” images of the connection cables, extending the main circuit board’s connectivity to the iPhone 6L’s plugs and buttons are Longer, as they have a longer path in the iPhone 6L’s larger cabinet. However, iPhone 6L has reported display fabrication issues with its display and battery.

ğŸŽ Camp Delta, says that there are issues with the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display iPhone model, as battery and display issues may delay its release until 2015, baloney.

ğŸŽ Tim Cook says do not draw conclusions about reported component supply-chain issues , as Apple has many alternate supply-chain resources and fabricators supporting its delivery of hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads currently in production.

ğŸŽ Apple builds 90 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L handhelds, that’s a lot of Units. Apple will not have its destiny, the delivery of tens-of-millions of iPhones, rest in the hands of only one fabricators, nor one component supplier, nor one circuit board maker… For safety and soundness of operating, Apple always has parallel production channels for delivery of their unique, high quality iDevices.

ğŸŽ Camp Jimmy, says that Apple will release BOTH iPhone models on the Same Day, even if Apple has to delay the announcement event a few days or weeks.

ğŸŽ IMHO, if Apple were to bifurcate the iPhone 6 models release dates, this would tend to “freeze” some of the iPhone 6 buyers until they have the opportunity to visualize both models side-by-side, self included. With our Cut-Out samples in hand, we’ve both decided on the iPhone 6L whenever its made available.

ğŸŽ If Apple only releases the iPhone 6 (and delays the iPhone 6L release) then there will be no new iPhone 6 sale for us. We will wait for the larger iPhone 6L to be released.

ğŸŽ Last year, 2013, Apple released two iPhone models, the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. On its opening weekend September, 20, 2013, iPhone 5S had $4 Billion in sales with 6 million units sold; iPhone 5C had $1.7 Billion sales with 3 million units sold. That’s 9 million new iPhones in its opening weekend.

ğŸŽ This Year, Sept, 2014, with a joint release of iPhone 6 with a 4.7″ and the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display model, there could be a virtual sales tsunami of over 15 million units sold in its opening weekend the two models with sales of over $10 Billion in profitable revenues. Recall Amazon’s new FIRE Phone flopped with less than 35,000 units sold in its first Month.


ğŸŽ This is a Video Clip of the New iPhone BOX. http://youtu.be/-VxCxfPfoeE


ğŸŽ Apple to release two New Large-Display iPhones on September, 2014, with an all-new redesigned 4.7" model Plus a Larger Display 5.5" version.

ğŸŽ Both Apple iPhone hand-sets poised to take the high-end smartphone market by what’s bern characterized as a “Perfect Storm” in Apple’s iPhone life-cycle.

ğŸŽ Recent reports coming from China, suggests a 128GB storage option serves as an important differentiator between 4.7″ & 5.5″ models.

ğŸŽ Displayed is an image from an Asian “Leaked” announcement brochure showing the two new iPhone 6 models side-by-side, at 4.7″ and 5.5″ display sizes, Both to be released Simultaneously on September 19th, 2014, which matches our prediction made several months ago.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 Air 20th Rumor Roundup Update Summery
1⃣ Apple is 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day, 9/9/2014
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L in full production now
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production now
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model offers 128GB Memory Option
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model to have Sapphire Display “glass”
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model cost $100 more than iPhone 6
5⃣ Apple’s both iPhone 6 models add Temperature and Altimeter Sensors
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls, via iOS8
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ This is the “logic” supporting our theory regarding the potential release date of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6L and the simultaneous release of iOS8. The graphic below displays the time required for each of the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested showing iOS2, iOS3, iOS4, iOS5, iOS6, iOS7 and currently in beta, iOS8.

ğŸŽ A user of China’s Weibo microblogging service posted the image above of the alleged iPhone 6 promotional flyer, showing two models of the device; one featuring a 4.7″ screen and the other one with a 5.5″ screen. According to the flyer, both models of the iPhone 6 will be launched in China on September 19th, the date that was reportedly given away by German wireless-network provider Deutsche Telekom in a May inadvertent message to employees, blocking vacation time.

ğŸŽ iOS6 required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was certified by Apple for iOS6’s final release to the public. iOS7 required 7 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS7 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5S and 5C models about 10 months ago, specifically Friday, September 20, 2013.

ğŸŽ Looking at the “beta” versions to be evaluated and tested for iOS6, it required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS6 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5 Friday, September 19, 2012, however, Media Show to be held 9/9/2014.

ğŸŽ Lets Look at the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested for iOS8. Lets assume (this is analytics part) that the time consumed will likewise be a total of 100 days, before iOS8 cleared for its final release to the public. Since iOS8 will very likely be released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 6, lets calculate the future date.

ğŸŽ The bar-graph below shows that as of July 8, 2014 iOS8 is 40 days in beta testing. Assuming 100 days for completion of iOS8, then using my trusty iPhone’s math App emulating the HP 19B-II calculator, the final version of iOS8 will be loaded into iPhone 6 devices on or before Tuesday 09/02/2014.

ğŸŽ Therefore Friday, September 19, 2012 looks like a reasonable Date for the release of Apple’s iPhone 6 with iOS8 properly pre-loaded into the iPhone with its new Look, Feel, Features, Functions and Cyber Security protection.

July 8, 2014

http://tiny.cc/eyaqix

ğŸŽ Apple released iOS8 beta3 for iPhone and iPad to the developers today, 8/July/2014. This 3rd beta for Apple’s upcoming major software update to iOS8, comes three weeks after the release of beta 2. The iOS8 beta3 has a build number 12a4318c, and may be downloaded from the iOS Dev Center (if you’re a registered developer) and have a compatible iOS device. Learn more about iOS8 beta3 and the links to download it from iOS Dev Center with your registered App Developer account.

ğŸŽ What’s with all the Beta versions for iOS8. The Operating System (the OS) for the iPhone and iPad defines how the device operates and communicates with all the electronic components from a “Machine Language” point of view. The OS is the interface between the App developers applications and the iPhone’s and the iPad’s hardware components. The OS also contains all the newest and most effective Malware, Spyware, anti-Virus algorithms to protect and secure your private and confidential information housed within iPhones and iPads.

ğŸŽ Apple’s software engineers invest hundreds of thousands of hours, literally years, in creating the iOS. Then Apple releases iOS8 beta1 to the development community. For iOS8, iOS7, iOS6, the whole number OS versions, the beta version is released to at the WWDC Conferences held annually in mid-year. This year WWDC 2014 commenced June 2, 2014.

ğŸŽ WWDC attendees, App Developers, a thousand of Apple’s best Engineers, plus other highly respected software engineers, many of which test the features and operability of iOS8. For several weeks these App developers and Apple’s software engineers communicate back-and-forth with information on iOS8 beta1’s operability.

ğŸŽ Apple then STOPS the beta-testing of iOS8 beta1, employs the fixes & improvements identified, then publishes iOS8 beta2 for the Development Community to again examine and test. This multi-segmented beta-testing process may require 100-120 days, and may continue for 6, 7, or 8 beta versions, whatever number of beta-versions are necessary, until Apple is “satisfied” with iOS8’s performance, features, and operability. Only then will Apple release iOS8, the finished version, to the Public, and pre-install the OS8 into the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Air, and subsequent iDevices.

ğŸŽ In the event Apple, the Development community or the Pubic quickly discover iOS issues or glitches, Apple will employ the fixes and release iOS 8.0.2 for example, addressing the software-bugs. iPhones and iPads are very complex, sophisticated communications and computational hand-held devices, that utilize extremely advanced software to operate. And so this process of Apple hardware development and iOS development, leap-frog upon itself, year after year, in effort to provide to all of us iPhones and iPads, that change our lives, and the way we all communicate with each other globally.

ğŸŽ Apple created/acquired a huge Sapphire plant so that it could place razor-thin super-hard covers over their iPhones and the future iWatches. Recall that the only material harder than Sapphire is Diamond, next in line of hardness is way down the line. Imagine having a sapphire display cover on your iPhone. No More Screen “Protectors” ruining the beautiful display in exchange for preventing a scratch… Those days are OVER soon.

ğŸŽ Know this about Apple… Apple detests the notion of iPhone users covering their beautifully designed iPhones, which it so carefully crafted from the very finest materials, is just like “Grandma” covering her beautiful furniture with “plastic” to preserve the fine fabrics. Hopefully sapphire puts iPhone users concern for display-scratches to rest forever.

ğŸŽ My Personal Sapphire Experience. I’ve been wearing a quality RADO watch a several thousand dollar beauty, which has a convex sapphire crystal cover, that after 10 years of continuous use, has not any marks whatsoever… Take a look at this brief video clip showing the resiliency of a paper-thin sapphire display cover. http://youtu.be/5R0_FJ4r73s

ğŸŽ It’s highly likely that mobile power users will see the Larger Display model, plus 128GB Internal Storage capacity, plus Optical Image Stabilization, would all serve as a more capable, multi-use, overall appealing device.

iPhone 5, 6, Air

🔢 Apple iPhone 6 #20 Rumor Roundup Update
1⃣ Apple’s only 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 in full production
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 model offers 128GB Memory Option
5⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 Adds Sapphire Display + Altimeter Sensor
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera uses new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ Reports, leaks, and speculation about the next-generation iPhone are popping out thick and fast now. In the last 24-hours we’ve heard that Apple will be differentiating specifications between the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 models.

1⃣ iPhone 6 large-display 5.5″ model will incorporate InvenSense Optical Image Stabilization technology, but not in the 4.7″ model iPhone 6. We’ve also heard rumors suggesting that both iPhone 6 models will have 32GB and 64GB storge capabilities, suggesting that the entry-level 16GB storage choice may increased to 32GB.

2⃣ Chinese report is now citing sources that suggests that the larger 5.5″ model will make iPhone history by being the first model to offer a 128GB internal storage option.

3⃣ Optical Image Stabilization to be offered on the iPhone 6 5.5″ model.

4⃣ The introduction of two devices with differing display sizes is quite unique too. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Apple is planning on offering a larger disply device. However, the question is, how will Apple differentiate between the two hand-sets in terms of functionality, and prehaps price too.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 is Slated for 20 Million Units Sold in 2014 plus more than Three Times this figure for the new 4.7″ iPhone 6 version.

ğŸŽ Best Guess, New iPhone 6 may be Announced at Apple’s special Presentation Meeting of iPhone 6 held in San Francisco, California, Tuesday, September 9th, Announcing the iPhone 6, its features, and the iPhone 6 Release Date of Friday, September 19th. Invitations likely sent to the Media Tuesday, September 2.

ğŸŽ Here is the Round-up of the most recent rumors out there in cyberspace, from the most reliable supply-line overseas sources. Recall that rumors are not facts.

ğŸŽ Apple believes in Surprises. Apple does Not “Leak” Anything. However, many times “leaks” derived from staff at the components-supply-line, have proven to be more “accurate” than undocumented cyber-chatter. These are the Most Likely specifications of the iPhone 6:

ğŸŽ iPhone released with 2 display choices 4.7″ and 5.5″
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to be 7mm thin
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to have A8 Processor, faster more comprehensive functions
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 1704×960 pixel dimension, 1.636 Megapixels
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 356 dpi for 5″ display or 416 dpi for 4.7″ display
ğŸŽ iPhone to contain new Altimeter/Pressure sensor

ğŸŽ iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP Imager, up from 8MP
ğŸŽ iSight Camera with f2.0 Aperture, up from f2.2
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved image Stabilization
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved ultra-low-light performance
ğŸŽ iSight Video delivers 30fps with full 1920x1080p stabilized resolution

ğŸŽ Notice the graphic below displaying an abstract of the beta-iOS8 Code provided to the Developers at WWDC, which “signals” a new hardware component, an Atmospheric Barometric Pressure sensor, that does not presently exist in any of Apple’s existing iPhone or iPad devices.

ğŸŽ Typically we see new iPhone releases arriving early enough, so that the opening weekend sales occur during Apple’s 4th quarter of their fiscal year. Recall that Apple sold more than 5 million iPhone 5 units in 2012 in the opening weekend; then iPhone sales topped 9 million with the joint-release of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in 2013.

ğŸŽ September, 2014 seems to be a relatively good guess for the iPhone 6 release, likely a combined release of the 4.7″ and 5.5″ versions, which would compare to the previous combined release in 2013. Here is a summary of the recent rumors on this topic
ğŸŽ iNew iPhone launch as early as September – Nikkei
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in August or September – Steve Milunovich UBS via Barrons
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in the fall – Andy Hargreaves at Pacific Crest via Business Insider
ğŸŽ New iPhone scheduled for third quarter 2014 – ZDNet Korea
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in September – Ming-Chi Kuo via MacRumors
ğŸŽ New iPhone 6 in September – iFun
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in August or September – Economic Daily News
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in September – Industrial Commercial Times
ğŸŽ iOS 8 new operating system release-date which was confirmed at the WWDC 2014 Conference for the fall, 2014
ğŸŽ New iOS software previously has been accompanied with the release of new iPhone hardware iterations.

ğŸŽ Apple typically employs staggered-Country release dates. Major markets like the United States are typically at the front while smaller markets usually lag behind by several weeks and occasionally several months.

ğŸŽ The Headline image shows the relative sizes of the existing iPhone 5 with its 4″ display, shown with the new 4.7″ iPhone 6, and the new iPhone Air with it 5.5″ display. Therefore, by mid-September upgrading iPhone users moving up from the iPhone 4 and 5, and many Android folks, that have been waiting for Apple to deliver larger displays, will have three display sizes to pick from, all having finger-print security, great camera systems, huge inventory of Apps, plus the marvelous Apple ecosystem.

ğŸŽ The combination of factors
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 4
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 5
ğŸŽ Apple receiving Migration from Android due to iPhone’s Large Display offerings
ğŸŽ Apple will receive a “Tsunami of Sales” to the iPhone 6 in 2014 and 2015!

ğŸŽ Apple kept its cards close to its chest about the forthcoming iPhone 6 at this week’s WWDC keynote address; however, new information has arrived from China, suggesting that Apple has solved the battery issues that reportedly plagued production of its expected 5.5″ iPhone 6. Therefore Apple is on course to ship 20 millions of the iPhone Air handsets in 2014.

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – Its 90 Days and Counting, Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 version is Slated for 20 Million Units to Sell plus 4.7″ iPhone 6 to Sell 70 Million in 2014, Plus over 200 Million iPhones to Sell in 2015. This brings the total number of iOS iPhones and iPads to

ğŸŽ 90 Million iPhones to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 200 Million iPhones to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 30 Million iPads to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 60 Million iPads to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 475 Million iPhones and iPads sold as of June, 2014 equals
ğŸŽ 855 Million iPhones and iPads in Service Everywhere

ğŸŽ The news states that Apple is partnering with the China-based Sunwoda Electronics to manufacture batteries for all of these devices, where the battery costs roughly $6.40 each. Apple’s regular battery supplier, Dynapack, will also help fill the battery order.

ğŸŽ While both iPhone 6 variations are expected to ship at the same release-date, it is likely that you may have an easier time finding a 4.7″ iPhone 6 than with the 5.5″ big brother.

ğŸŽ Apple is reportedly planning to manufacture 80 million iPhone 6 handsets for 2014, meaning that the larger “phablet” may be significantly outnumbered by the 4.7″ model by a factor of 4:1. This exclusivity (combined with the larger size of the device) likely suggests that the iPhone Air may come at a higher price point, say a $100 premium. I’ll Take TWO please.

ğŸŽ The Images above and below are all the iPhone Models from the initial iPhone in 2007, to the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and the pro-forma for the iPhone 6 with the 4.7″ display.

ğŸŽ Apple Said to Have Enough Sapphire Glass for Production of Both iPhone 6 Models and iWatch in 2014. Apple reportedly will have enough sapphire glass production for both of its iPhone 6 models as well as the iWatch in 2014, based on the latest supply-chain check at the company’s sapphire-glass manufacturing partner GT Advanced done by analyst Matt Margolis at Seeking Alpha.

ğŸŽ As a result of the most recent supply chain, it is believed that the Mesa, Arizona huge sapphire operation facility, should have ample supply for the new iWatch, the 4.7″ iPhone plus the 5.5″ iPhone with full sapphire cover glass in 2014. Additionally, the maximum sapphire screen capacity of the Mesa, AZ facility may exceed 200 million units/year.

ğŸŽ In February, 2014 Margolis estimated that Apple would be gearing up for mass production of devices with sapphire displays, with equipment in the factory leading to a yield of anywhere from 100 to 200 million ~5″ sapphire displays. A yield of over 200 million sapphire displays as indicated by this latest report means that Apple could possibly produce more than enough sapphire displays for the 4.7″ iPhone 6, the 5.5″ iPhone 6 and the iWatch.

ğŸŽ Previous reports indicated that sapphire display supply constraints may force Apple to reserve the scratch resistant material for its larger iPhone models, with expenses perhaps driving up the retail price for consumers. Other reports suggested that initial sapphire production would target the iWatch instead of the iPhone 6, however the reported volume of raw material and equipment purchased would likely hint at bigger plans for sapphire display production.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 is expected to be released later this year, with the 5.5″ iPhone 6 launching near the end of 2014. In addition to a sapphire display, both phones will likely include a thinner profile, a faster A8 processor, and an improved camera. Meanwhile, the iWatch is expected to be revealed at an October event and may launch later that month.

ğŸŽ This Year’s amazing WWDC keynote address was the most significant product introduction since Apple unveiled the original iPad in 2010. But this time, the revolutionary, magical product wasn’t hardware, it was software, iOS8. While the techno-analysts are arguing about display sizes and CPU speed, Apple quietly has been working on those hardware issues;

ğŸŽ However, Apple has been spending considerable effort, tens of thousands of engineering hours, with integrating these iDevices with each other and MACs, so that there operate consistently, and interchangeably. Integrating… even to the extent of you being able to answer a telephone call on your MAC laptop, as it integrates with your iPhone using iOS8 and MAC using its new Yosemite operating system. Apple is integrating household electronics, security systems, locking systems, garage-door openers, thermostats, lighting systems… you imaging it Apple and their 3rd party developers are delivering.

ğŸŽ Imagine, saying to SIRI, I’m ready for Bed, please lock-up the Apartment, set the lighting, the alarms, the thermostat, and awaken me at 7am tomorrow morning.

ğŸŽ We have NEST which is an automation thermostat that learns our heating and cooling desires, operates with our iPads and iPhones, and saves us about 25% on our electricity, as it “knows” when we are Away and when we Arrive, making Climate Control settings for us, after about a week of learning.

ğŸŽ If coming home early, I can open the NEST App on my iPhone, and start cooling the Apartment as its WiFi integrated, secure and accessible from across the street or cross country. Forgot to turn-off the Heat or the A/C, rushing to the Air Port, no problem, one can access NEST from the Airline Terminal telling it that we’ll be AWAY for 5 days. I’ve written a detailed Article on NEST… just search for NEST at the top of this site.

ğŸŽ Reported last week, Apple has engaged over 200 Chinese Security personnel to investigate and prosecute all the “leaks” that have been originating from Apple’s supply-line regarding the new iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ There are “signals” that lead me to deduce that there may be major Apple product Announcements at WWDC, other than, nifty Apps, the new Apple iOS8 operating software, and the latest and greatest for MACs’ operating system.

ğŸŽ Firstly, this is the first year that WWDC 2014 broadcasted via live-streaming at 1pm eastern time on Monday, June 2. Here is the link for a replay of the Keynote Address from the Moscone Center.

https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2014/

The iPhone 6 really won’t be too much of a surprise whenever it’s finally revealed since we’ve been seeing leaks showing us its shape and size for the past several weeks.

Apple may Announce both iPhone 6 and iPhone Air at one Media Event, however the iPhone 6 may be ship a week or two earlier than the iPhone Air.

📲 Apple is BLOCKING out days in September at all its USA retail stores, apparenty in preparation of New Product release(s). Some secrets just cannot be kept, as too many folks, in too many locations trumps iPhone secrecy. As we get closer to the September release Weekend (typically Friday, Saturday, Sunday) we’ll know more, for all those that are Chomping at the Bit for the latest and greatest technology device, self included.

📲 Jim Wilson’s blog is FAU4U2 on WordPress.com. The Blog link is: http://tiny.cc/e7pwfx We’re proud of the growing number of over 54,000 readers, who stay connected regarding Apple’s iOS personal communications devices, accessories, Apps, and other technology topics. FAU4U2 was created several years ago to provide a forum to answer the many questions that many FAU students throw at me 24/7 in this connected world we live in.

📲 My view, when in a classroom setting, whether as 5th grader, or in Graduate school, on Campus, or otherwise, if a few students have questions, there are likely many more students that just don’t ask, too shy, afraid of asking a “stupid question.” No questions are stupid questions. Therefore, when I get a few questions on a similar topic, I’ll likely create a blog-page on FAU4U2 giving a core response with some related information and research, as there may be millions of folks thinking about that topic.

📲 FAU4U2 Statistics: Presently our readership as of 2012/05/28 is 54,000 from over 30 Countries, reading 498 Articles, housed within 74 categories, marked with 324 Topic Tags for a more refined searching result, 816 Shares, and followed by 20 other blogs. A majority of our readers are from the USA, United Kingdom, Denmark, Netherlands, Australia, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, Mexico, Ukraine, Canada, Indonesia, Estonia, and Italy, listed in order of frequency of the articles read.

📲 Presently in the USA, 54% of all American smartphone owners have iPhones, the remaining smartphone users, the 46% smartphone users, are grouped together (the 12 brands and models of Androids, Blackberry, Google, Samsung, HTC, Motorola). Apple’s market-share in North America is growing. Industry experts expect, with the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone Air, Apple’s market share for their iPhones will grow at an accelerated rate.

📲 Apple iPhone “supply-line” chatter is hot and heavy as the next weeks speed forward. Combine this chatter with several layers of (Chinese) Mandarin translation, it becomes difficult to differentiate between “release date” with “announcement date” and availability. Expressed above is the best we could surmise.

📲 Virtually all of the rumors and schematics pertaining to Apple’s next iPhone center on its ultra-thin design and two screen sizes: 4.7″ and 5.5″ however, up until now we’re kept in the dark as to what screen resolution the larger 5.5-incher (the iPhone Air) might have.

📲 Recall none of these figures, dialog, and proforma-images, comes from Apple officially, but from “snitches” in its supply-line. Of course its no surprise that Apple totally ignores all these “news” reports and rumors.

📲 Other than leaked supply-line secrets, punishable by termination and prosecution by Apple, everything displayed and discussed is conjecture. However, since there are such a vast number of enterprises, engineers, and factory workers involved with the fabrication and assembly of the new iPhone models, whispers arriving from several directions that have a common-thread, could lead an observer to deductions as assembled in this article.

📲 iPhone 6 Release Date: Until Announced, Apple is silent. However, its hard to keep this date a secret with over 400 retail stores. These stores are beginning to “Black-Out” vacation days in September, generally a good sign that Apple requires “all hands on deck” for a new Apple product release. In the next few weeks, these retail store employee black-out dates will be fine-tuned.

📲 iPhone Air, according to new reports the 5.5″ iPhone may have a screen resolution of 1,704-by-960 pixels, a marked improvement over the current 4″ display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c.

📲 iPhone Air’s 1,704-by-900 pixel resolution is essentially a tripled of the “base display resolution” of 568-by-320 pixels. Before the iPhone 5, the iPhone 4 introduced the “Retina Display” representing a resolution of 960-by-640 pixels, which itself is a pixel-doubled 480-by-320 resolution found on the non-Retina 3.5″ original iPhone and the iPhone 3G/3Gs.

📲 Industry experts and analysts are anticipating huge release results, now that Apple is finally delivering LARGER display iPhones. Accordingly the prognosticators are also predicting an large influx of Android users that have been waiting to join the Apple EcoSystem, now that the display size issue is being resolved.

📲 Apple’s Retina Display: Apple’s retina display signifies a range of resolutions depending on the distance from ones Eyes the display is viewed. The human Eye is an organic camera system contain an auto-focus lens which focuses the subject light onto a dense-quilt of photo-sensitive living biological “Cone & Rod” cells. This organic array of specialized living cells, “attached” to the back-wall of the interior of one’s Eye is called the Retina.

📲 Ophthalmologists, have determined if one is reading a book, picture, iPad, iPhone about 14″ away from your Eyes, and if the content of the book’s font characters or pictures are comprised of picture-elements, pixels, the human Eye is not capable if distinguishing individual pixels from each other, if they are packed at a density of 300 pixels per inch, 300 ppi. Recall that 300 ppi means that there are 90,000 pixels within each square inch. The current 4″ diagonal display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c has a pixel density of 326 ppi.

📲 I’m a Believer – Apple is reported to have placed their iPhone 6 order for 90 million units! Looks like FOXCON is going to be very, very busy this year. Recall there are over 475,000,000 iPhones in circulation – there will be a huge number of UpGrades this year, plus a Large number of Migrations from Android to iPhone 6.

📲 Q1, 2014 Apple sold just under 50 million iPhones, therefore ordering 90 million units is giving Apple just a head-start for a what the industry and Apple believes will be a huge iphone 6 launch. In looking at the schematics and the prototypes constructed, Personally, I’m upgrading to the iPhone Air.

📲 The iPhone with its Apps transform the smartphone into a valued business tool, scanner, portable fax, communications device, eMail, Text messaging, and of course a Phone. It will be interesting if Logitech develops one of their UltraThin Keyboard Covers for the iPhone Air, as we both have the Logitech keyboard covers for our iPad minis.

ğŸŽ Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, He is in it, to Win It, Period! This intensity and commitment is terrific for Apple product users, as we are all going to receive better products, and great for Apple’s share holders.

ğŸŽ Speaking of Apple Shareholders. At Apple’s recent quarterly Conference Call, Tim Cook announced that it had a record profit Quarter, the company will be forward splitting its sharers 7-for-1, meaning if you presently own 100 AAPL shares, June 9th Apple will be sending you another 600 shares. This brings the present (6/4/2014) share-price of $644/share for example, to about $92/share, making its shares more “affordable” to an expanded audience of smaller investors.

ğŸŽ Take a look at the Graphic of iPhone Sales. Lets focus on the period of Q1+Q2, 2010 to Q1+Q2, 2014, in this 4 year period iPhone sales grew from 16 million iPhones in 6 months to over 100 million in 6 months. Look at the Slope of the Green trend-line.

ğŸŽ The Line is pointed UP, significantly Up. It does not take a PhD in mathematics and statistics to “extrapolate” what the future quarters may look like, if the the past trends have any possible “predictability” for what Apple’s iPhone future sales may be. No one knows for sure, but my Guess is Apple’s iPhone sales will continue to increase. Likely because Apple continues to reinvent the SmartPhone with innovations that people want.

ğŸŽ Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says, Apple is planning to debut two new iPhone models with two distinct screen sizes in 2014, an unprecedented move for Apple that traditionally has shied away from screen size wars. However a very large survey of iPhone owners, over 60% of their installed-base desires larger display sizes. The graphic of an iPhone may depict the ICON Layout for the new iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ Aside from obvious size differences, the top-of-the-line 5.5″ model will sport a high-resolution display of 1,920-by-1,080 pixels, which represents the same resolution as your large Flat-screen HDTV, translates to 401 pixels per inch, (ppi) in the palm of your hand. The 4.7″ iteration will use a 1,334-by-750 pixel-display to maintain scalability with existing iPhone Apps, representing a pixel density of 326 ppi, meeting or exceeding the “Retina” resolution, Apple set several years ago.

ğŸŽ Both handsets will use Apple’s next-generation A8 system-on-chip with 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM, low temperature polysilicon in-cell touch panels and Touch ID fingerprint security.

ğŸŽ Importantly, a near-field communications chip-set (NFC) and a metal casing are also part of the build. An 10-megapixel rear-facing camera with a f/2.0 aperture is expected, though Apple may improve the camera system to include an improved electronic or optical image stabilization to improve low-light performance, an exciting feature new to the smart-phones, taking the “camera shake” for low light “party” photography.

ğŸŽ As to aesthetics, the iPhones’ bezels are said to be 10% to 20% narrower than the current iPhone 5s, while thinness is pegged at 7.0 millimeters. Kuo also says Apple will move the location of the Top of the iPhone’s sleep/wake button to the right-side of the iPhone, to facilitate one-handed operation. This button-relocation may indicate a new feature that requires frequent pressing of the power button for other functions. Good we could actually need one more button, to eliminate too many soft-menus on the display.

ğŸŽ While the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be within Apple’s guidelines of one-handed operation, Kuo believes Apple may position from a product line-up perspective the 5.5″ version as a higher-end iPhone Air (Phablet) perhaps with an additional $100 premium. I’ll go for it.

ğŸŽ Kuo also believes the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be Apple’s main driver of handset sales in late 2014 and full-year shipments could exceed 60 million units. My guess it will be double or triple this estimate.

ğŸŽ The 5.5″ iPhone Air model may cannibalize some of the sales of the iPad mini, but if the company can marginally reduce the price-tag of its iPad mini, its iPad line-up should remain strong.

ğŸŽ IMHO, its better to cannibalize the iPad mini to yourself, than to be cannibalized by the Competitors, by not having the 5.5″ iPhone Phablet, as has happened over the last 18 months. This is probable the only “mistake” IMHO, Apple has encountered recently. However, who am I to say that Apple made a “misstep” when Apple is delivering 200 million iPhones/year currently. But, what’s not to like with another 30 million units sold.

ğŸŽ We may likely see a terrific migration from Android ➡️ Apple this year and next, perhaps at a rate of a 35% shift ➡️ Apple, with these two larger display choices in Apple’s iPhone line-up. Presently, Android users are migrating ➡️ Apple’s way at a rate of over 20% or more.

ğŸŽ Kuo expects both iPhone 6 models to hit store shelves in the 3rd Quarter of 2014, with Apple keeping the iPhone 5s and 5c on board as mid-tier and low-tier offerings. Due to the expanded handset lineup, the iPhone 4S and 4 will reach end-of-life in 2014.

ğŸŽ Details on Apple’s plans for the 2014 iPhone lineup were published on Tuesday by Japanese blog Macotakara. Citing a trusted source, “Apple has designed two larger iPhone models, sporting 4.7″ and 5.5″ displays, which are final candidates for launch in 2014.”

ğŸŽ Apple’s New iPhone 6 is without a doubt one of the most hotly anticipated smartphone launches of 2014. A dozen or so independent reports suggest that the handset will feature a new larger 4.7″ display and a fresh new design that is thinner than ever. The iPhone 6 is also expected to be accompanied by a new iPhone phablet that will include a 5.5″ screen to help attract new business over from the Android camp.

ğŸŽ Another day, another set of iPhone 6 rumors trickles out from the East Asia. According to the latest report, Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 is ready to enter its mass production phase in May, 2014, with 90 Million Units ordered. The timing would align perfectly with a launch in the 3rd Quarter of 2014. This timing is as expected by most of the other industry watchers. Interestingly, this new report suggests that Apple’s second new iPhone for 2014, the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ Display may be in mass-production until later in the 3rd quarter, 2014 which obviously suggests that it won’t debut until sometime later in 2014.

ğŸŽ We encourage Apple to release both iPhone 6 Models, the 4.75″ and the 5.5″ displays simultaneously. There is such a huge expectation that Apple will be coming out with a “Phablet” (a term Apple despises). If Apple delays the iPhone Air, it may significantly erode the launch of iPhone 6, folks waiting to see both devices, so to choose between the two. Personally, I would wait, and would recommend to my friends, to delay updating until both are announced and visualized. It would be better to delay the iPhone 6, so that it is released with the iPhone Air, than to bifurcate Apple’s iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ According to a report relayed by EMSOne, Taiwan-based Industrial and Commercial Times claims that Apple’s manufacturing partners will begin mass-producing the new iPhone 6 in July. With three months of lead time, that certainly could align well with a late September launch that keeps Apple’s fall iPhone launch pattern alive.

ğŸŽ Interestingly, however, the report claims that Apple’s larger iPhone Phablet may not enter mass-production until sometime in September. If accurate, the device may not debut alongside the iPhone 6, but instead perhaps in later 2014 or early 2015. Remember all these remarks are rumors and “deductions” from supply-line insiders.

ğŸŽ Despite the potential late-start for Apple’s iPhone Phablet production, Industrial and Commercial Times claims that both new iPhones will launch sometime in the fourth quarter this year.

ğŸŽ Apple’s new iPhone 6 is expected to feature an entirely new design with a 4.7″ display, a thinner housing and an upgraded processor. The iPhone phablet is expected to sport a similar design with a larger 5.5″ screen.

ğŸŽ If the reports we have been reading, even come close to representing the handsets Apple actually launches in the 3rd quarter of 2014, we may expect APPLE to crush the sales records the Company set in the fall of 2013, when the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C debuted together, Apple’s first announcement of 2-model on the same Day.

ğŸŽ Recall Apple sold 9 Million iPhones on the opening weekend, 50% greater sales than its previous release weekend of 6 million units. Remember about 55% of All American smartphone users are carrying Apple iPhones.

ğŸŽ Total iPhone sales since its beginning in July, 2007 is presently in excess of 475,000,000 units, Add to this 175,000,000 iPads, the total Apple iOS devices in use equates to roughly 650,000,000. Extend this figure to year end, 12/31/2014, Apple could be sitting with 800,000,000 iPhones and iPads in circulation.. sometime in 2015 Apple may be crossing this 1,000,000,000 threshold (yes that’s One-Billion) globally.

ğŸŽ IMHO, this is exactly what the iPhone Market needs, two serious screen sizes to choose between. The choice of either the 4.7″ display or the 5.5″ display will be perfect Selections to choose from, and will certainly silence the Apple critics for not having a choice of displays. Assuming Apple retains the current Model iPhone 5S, with the New Models, The iphone 6 with its 4.7″ display and the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ display.

Apple offering Four iPhones Models, covering a variety of Display Sizes

ğŸŽ iPhone 4S… 3.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… 99¢
ğŸŽ iPhone 5S… 4.0″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $99
ğŸŽ iPhone 6….. 4.7″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $199
ğŸŽ iPhone Air… 5.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $299

ğŸŽ Lets assume for the moment that Macotakara Publication is accurate regarding the two new display sizes. Lets further assume that Jimmy’s subsidized price “quesstimates” will range from 99¢ for the 3.5″ iPhone 4S to $299 for the 5.5″ iPhone Air, as shown above.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 Rumor Round-Up ⬆️ A Really Big Launch in 2014 ⬆️ Initial Supply Order 90 Million Units ⬆️ 2 Display Sizes ⬆️ 4.7″ & 5.5″ Displays ⬆️ 5G WiFi Connectivity ⬆️ 3 New Sensors: Humidity-Temperature-Atmospheric-Pressure ⬆️ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed

ğŸŽ The Graphic Above: Based upon leaked schematics (blue-line graphic below) discovered by Macotakara of the forthcoming 4.7″ and 5.5″ variants of the iPhone 6, Nowherelse teamed up with concept designer extraordinaire Martin Hajek to create what may be the most plausible look (graphic above) at what Jony Ive’s next iPhone design would look like yet,” John Brownlee reports for Cult of Mac.

ğŸŽ “All the proportions here are perfect: although it features a larger profile, a super thin design, and an edge-to-edge display, the design still features a beautiful internal symmetry that seems worthy of Apple,” Brownlee writes. “There are some changes: the edges are curved, more organic, and the volume buttons have been unified into a single rocker, but otherwise, it looks like an evolution of the current iPhone 5s. Which is exactly what the iPhone 6 would look like.” The Graphic below is the “leaked schematic blue-print.”

ğŸŽ The BIG Question is: Will iPhone Up-Graders pay-up $299 for the base model of the 5.5″ iPhone Air; Plus paying an added $100 for each step for 32GB, 64GB, 128GB Memory upgrades.

ğŸŽ What’s Jimmy Think: From my perspective, and knowing how valuable my iPhone is as a communications device, and the added utility of the iPhone, as a business tool, thanks to the 100+ amazing Apps that I use frequently, I may be “pleased” to pay $500, subsidized, for the 5.5″ iPhone Air with 64GB of storage. (The iPhone Air name is also an assumption).

ğŸŽ Lets look at “JimW’s iPhone 5S” Usage, I have about 22.9 GB remaining of the 64GB iPhone. It could be assumed with the iPhone Air’s larger screen, it may double as “my miniature iPad mini” perhaps needing to step-up the onboard storage to 128GB, matching my iPad mini’s capacity. Unfortunately, one cannot upgrade later, so this is “a one-time decision” of paying-up that extra $100 for Twice the storage, going from 64GB to 128GB, assuming this choice is available. Since I have 128GB on my iPad-Mini-Retina, I’d likely keep the storage on both devices uniform.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 should be a Really Big Launch in 2014 with Two Display Sizes, this quinella of iPhones will be Longer and Wider, Diagonal Measure: 4.7″ and 5.5″ Display Sizes ~ 5G WiFi Connectivity ~ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed ~ Three New Sensors measuring ambient Temperature, Humidity and Atmospheric Pressure.

ğŸŽ iPhone reports have it, that the 2 New iPhones may have internal components to measure Temperature, Atmospheric Pressure and Humidity sensors. It will be interesting how Apple’s engineers “shields” these three sensors from the internal ambient-effects of the warm electronics and that of the liON Polymer battery, as the iPhone’s circuitry operates and the battery discharges, which tend to become warm…

ğŸŽ iPhone Release Schedules. Historically, Apple released its original iPhone in June, 2007 with over a million units sold in its opening weekend. The next iPhone iteration, the iPhone 3G was released in July, 2008. (Notice that we’re focusing your attention to the “Major” releases, not the interim “S” releases).

ğŸŽ The next major iPhone release was June, 2010, with its iPhone 4, the date and model Marilyn and I bought our first iPhones. Subsequently, the iPhone 5 was released in September, 2012 with 6 million units sold in its opening weekend. The “September” release month was somewhat “off schedule” from the other June timings. This 90 delay delay, may have occurred due to some quality-control and/or supply-line issues, pushing back the release a few months; Total guesswork on my part.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is upon us reportedly, and interested folks are wondering when will the iPhone 6 be Announced and Released. My guess, Apple may return to the June, 2014 timing schedule, so that Apple has more time for the Sales of this likely “Block Buster” release with its reported larger 4.7″ brilliant display.

ğŸŽ I’ve predicted that Apple may have a 12 million iPhone weekend, with iPhone 6 new Two-Sizes Release. Also reported, Apple placed its initial order for the iPhone 6, ordered 90 million units from their experienced Apple supplier, Foxconn. Now That’s Confidence.

ğŸŽ The secondary questions, will Apple release Two Phones, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone Air on the same Day, similar to the release of iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C in September, 2013.

ğŸŽ These new models are reportedly expected to have similar button shapes for volume and mute as the iPhone 5c, as well as the same rounded back edges. In addition, it was said that the holes on the bottom of the handset for speaker and microphone will also follow the design established by the iPhone 5C.

ğŸŽ In looking at the leaked blue-prints, for the iPhone 6, the rounded edges give an appearance of the iPad mini, but thinner, without the angled-edges of the present iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ The larger 5.5″ model is said to be 7.5 millimeters thick, which would be the same as the iPad Air. This thinness would reportedly may require the rear iSight camera to protrude slightly from the case, much like with the fifth-generation iPod nano. Last year the Apple had to revise its “thinness” from 7.0mm to 7.5mm to avoid the slight protrusion.

ğŸŽ Macotakara, sourced for the story above, has a respectable track record in “predicting” Apple’s future iPhone plans. Last year, Macotakara revealed
(A) the 2013 iPhone lineup would come in a new range of colors, and it was also
(B) the first to claim that the iPhone 5s would feature a dual LED flash for more natural looking photos, and was
(C) the first to state that the new pill-shaped flash module would be accompanied by a
(D) the circular rear-facing microphone located between the flash and the iSight camera lens.

ğŸŽ The anticipated larger iPhone is rumored to be a high-end iPhone 5c, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will continue to have a plastic back, as the iPod nano achieves its colors with anodized aluminum. The new models are apparently a cross between the design of the iPhone 5c and the seventh-generation iPod nano. According to the source, the new larger iPhone won’t be a replacement for the existing iPhone 5c, but will be akin to a higher-end model.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is going be a really Big launch this year. Apple will finally offer, its reported, a bigger display to compete with the likes of the Galaxy S5 and other flagship Android phones and phablets.

ğŸŽ It’s not that Apple’s iPhone underperforms in any measure, its strictly that 69% of Existing iPhone Users desire a Larger Display, self included. In anticipation of this huge anticipated demand, Apple has reportedly ordered 90 million iPhone 6 units from Foxconn.

ğŸŽ News is picking up momentum and spreading like a viral disease, as a new report indicates that the iPhone 5C’s sales failure could move-up the Release Date of the iPhone 6, to a date earlier in 2014, than initially anticipated. Of course, only Apple knows, everyone else is guessing, and extrapolating.

ğŸŽ One thing for sure, Apple will release the iPhone 6, when its ready for a huge release. Since Apple’s release of the 5S and 5C simultaneously with a 9 Million release-weekend, Apple will surely be capable of having 15 Million of the iPhone 6 models available for its opening Weekend.

ğŸŽ According to the Australian rendition of the International Business Times, there’s a brand new report that has come fast and furious out of DigiTimes, indicating that there are more than a million iPhone 5C handsets sitting on retail and ISP’s shelves the around the world world, where Apple is having trouble designing a plan to move these units economically for the delivery source and Apple’s balance sheet.

ğŸŽ As noted by IBT… “Some consumers believed iPhone 5C failed to prove that it is a cheap iOS device. But the tables could turn when carriers and retailers drop the existing prices to clear the remaining inventory once the iPhone 6 will be released.”

ğŸŽ The 5C issue (this is a media-invented issue) could spell big trouble for Apple if the iPhone 5C proves to be a hamper in their profit-stride and the “Wall Street Expectations game.” One Duck writes an absurd story and the rest of the Quacks repeat it. (Take a look at an Article I’ve written regarding what I believe is an iPhone 5C success story http://tiny.cc/e5jhdx) However, Apple could “make up for the 5C matter” with very strong quarterly sales by the release of an Exciting iPhone 6, particularly if Apple gets to or Close to a 5″ Display combined with the very successful and popular golden iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ iPhone is due to be released later this year. The iPhone 6 seemingly will be packed with amazing features that will make it fly-off the shelves.

ğŸŽ Several innovative features are likely to set-up the iPhone 6 as the new Leader in the smartphones market, significantly outperforming (Galaxy’s S5 a similar dud as was Apple’s 5C) along any other releases from its competitors coming out the next few months.

ğŸŽ Since even Samsung being disappointed with the apparent “flop” of the Galaxy S5, this leaves the “Door Wide Open” for Apple to capture a relatively large number of folks ready to migrate from Android.

ğŸŽ Rumors have it that Apple is going for a wider and bigger display for the new iPhone 6. But that’s not the only thing that’s changing. Apple now has a new patent called ‘Systems and Methods for Preventing Light Guide Plate Scratching Artifacts‘ which leads us to believe that the iPhone 6 display technology will be truly innovative.

ğŸŽ Apple has stated that iPhone 6 will probably have “the most gorgeous display rendering ever in a mobile device.” Not only will it look modern and chic but the screen may come with a neat protection layer.

ğŸŽ It looks like the Retina display panel will be replaced with Quantum Dot technology which will come with sharper, crisper colors and improved brightness renditions.

ğŸŽ Knowing how important battery life is, apparently, iPhone 6 will come equipped with a battery that not only will it last longer and give users longer talk-time, but will also feature a source of energy that will replenish its electrical power very quickly.

ğŸŽ There have also been rumors about wireless charging, no need to elaborate on what a great feature would that be and how iPhone 6 would become the public’s favorite. Wireless Charging typically means that the device (the iPhone) would have a flat-thin-coil inside the rear cover.

ğŸŽ If you placed the iPhone onto a charger-platform, alternating current is electro-magnetically transmitted through the rear cover, “exciting” the internal flat-thin-coil. This energy is then converted into DC, direct current, which is managed and stored into the LiON battery. You may recall the Palm-PRE had this capability a decade ago. The charging platform and the iPhone could have internal ceramic magnets to that the iPhone is held in position on the “charger.”

ğŸŽ Wi-Fi signal improvements with the famous 802.11ac (a/k/a 5G WiFi) offering break-neck speed, and longer connectivity range, is rumored to be featured on the new iPhone 6. If this is true, users will be able to download or stream HD films in a matter of seconds even for very large HDTV video movie files. Gigabit speed equates to roughly 250,000,000 bYtes per second.

ğŸŽ In perspective, a typical 8 mega-pixel camera captures that have a file size of 5 Mega bYtes, thats a 5,000,000 byte file size. An iPhone that can transmit or receive data at Gigabit speeds, means that one could upload (or download) 50 full resolution images in ONE second. One one could download a full-length, 2 hour High Definition Movie in about 15 seconds.

ğŸŽ By design, 802.11ac is intended to operate only in the 5 GHz band. This avoids much of the interference at 2.4 GHz, including Bluetooth headsets, microwave ovens, and provides a strong incentive for users to upgrade their mobile devices to be dual band so that the 5 GHz band is more universally usable. This choice also streamlines the IEEE process by avoiding the possibility of contention between 802.11 and 802.15 proponents.

ğŸŽ Asus RT-AC66U 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless, at $189 these new Routers handle 5G. RT-AC66U offers very fast Wi-Fi on the 5GHz frequency band, both with Wireless-N clients and AC clients. In fact it’s the fastest of the few 802.11ac routers currently available on the market. The router also has very good range and its USB ports provide more than just the support for external storage and printers.

ğŸŽ To put Apple’s reported order in perspective, the Apple sold 51 million iPhones during its fiscal quarter ending Dec. 28th, 2013. Apple is anticipating a very large a leap in sales.

ğŸŽ The iPhone 6 may be fitted with a super-strong Sapphire crystal display, a more advanced camera, lens, image stabilization, an f2.0 aperture, and perhaps wireless charging. In addition, there are rumors that the iPhone 6 will feature a faster new A8 chip with a quad-core CPU and graphics.

ğŸŽ According to a Citigroup Global-Markets analyst, cited by the Commercial Times in China, Apple’s smartphone shipments are expected to rise a whopping 23% in 2014, compared to 13% increase in sales last year.

ğŸŽ IMHO if Apple delivers the iPhone 6 with a Display that contains a meaningful increase to 4.75" or 5.0" Apple iPhone will sell in huge numbers.

ğŸŽ Overall, analysts in IDC predict that smartphone growth will slow somewhat in 2014 to 19.3% growth, down from 39.2% growth factor in 2013.

ğŸŽ The reason: average smartphone prices keep dropping, as demand shifts to China. In other words, the iPhone 6 will likely be a huge seller, helping it stay ahead of the industry average in terms of growth and profitability.

ğŸŽ Note that Galaxy S5 was a big flop, disappointing users, investors, and Samsung, as demand for Samsung’s newest offering was not very exciting. If the iPhone goes to a 5" display its Demand will Explode.

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release April, 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, (I sold my iPad 4 to Gazelle.com) applied the proceeds to purchase the "mini" with 128GB of Storage, AT&T connectivity, plus added Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover, and an ACME MADE San Francisco rubberized thin slip-over protective case. This thin package actually fits into my trousers pocket.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 – 23rd Rumor Roundup 1⃣ Apple 10 Days to go 2⃣ Announce TWO new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L 3⃣ Media Event Tuesday 9/9/2014 4⃣ Both iPhones Released Friday September 19, 2004 @ 8AM Eastern ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

1409439178.jpg

ğŸŽ Battle of the iPhone 6 Rumors is in Full Bloom and Contradiction, now that we are just 10 days before Apple’s Media Event of September 9th.

ğŸŽ Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap has been blighted with component issues, manufacturing problems, quality control, relating to the production of the iPhone 6 and its sibling iPhone 6L with its 5.5″ display.

ğŸŽ We have been noticing online “mock-ups” of these two new models, borne from schematics apparently captured from FOXcomm computer screens. It seemed to us that the iPhone 6L looked much larger than the iPhone 6. This motivated me to make white-board cut-outs for
📱 iPhone 6L measuring 158mm by 78mm
📱 iPhone 6 measuring 138mm by 67mm
📱 iPhone 5 measuring 123mm by 58mm

ğŸŽ This week we completed the white-board cutouts from the dimensions shown on FOXconn’s computer screens. I did not take time creating home page screen, as we were singularly interested in the feel of the two devices, their length, width and holding both side-by-side. Additionally I was interested in holding the iPhone 6 and 6L Samples next to several other competitors smart phones, such as Samsung and LG offeerings.

ğŸŽ CHOPS Lobster Bar is quality 5⭐️ down town Boca Raton establishment that Marilyn and I frequent localally. The bar has 16 seats, serves a quality clientele as the dining room enjoys $100/person average dinners, tax, title, and tip. At the Bar, all the folks carry the best smart phones, with about 75% or more carrying iPhones. I’ve read that Apple enjoys about 54% market share in North America. My observations in south Florida see a significantly higher iPhone share.

ğŸŽ Compare iPhone 6 and 6L with Samsung, LG and other 4.7″ to 5.5″ display smart phones. Having handled the two Mock-Ups iPhone 6 & 6L, they both have a nice feel in the hands, having the same aspect ratios of Apple’s iPhone 5 and 5S, meaning that ratio of the smartphone’s Length to its Width is equal.

ğŸŽ We focused firstly on the 6L as all the “Talking Heads” have been remarking about the “huge” Phablets. We were actually surprised with apple’s choice of the iPhone 6L, 158mm by 78mm with a Thinner/Longer shape. It feels good in the hands, and we have smaller hands than many. The iPhone 6 measuring 138mm by 67mm is a modest increases from the iPhone 5’s measurement of 123 mm by 58mm.

ğŸŽ Comparing the iPhone 6L to the LG and Samsung Phablets, which have 5.5″ to 5.7″ displays, was surprising. The new iPhone 6L is definitely “Thinner” then the Phablet competition, making it more confortable to hold in the hand. Samsung’s and LG’s were “Fatter” and harder to hold. Since Marilyn and I do a lot of things with our iPhone 5’s other than Phone Calls, we are very interested in the iPhone 6L for its larger display offering greater utility while web Browsing, crafting emails, Phonograph, Image editing…

ğŸŽ Holding the two white-board “samples” in hand, made it easier to decide which model is best for Marilyn and myself. Before handling the cut-outs, Marilyn was satisfied with the 4.7″ choice. After holding the two White-Board cut-outs, Marilyn changed her choice for the Larger iPhone 6L. Therefore once Apple makes the new iPhone’s available on-Line, we will pre-order two iPhone 6L, Marilyn’s with 64BG storage, as she is almost full with the 32GB iPhone 5; I will upgrade to 128GB storage as I am using most of the 64GB on my iPhone 5.

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 ~ iPhone 6L, 23nd Rumor Roundup
1⃣ Apple is 10 Days & Counting
2⃣ Announce TWO new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L
3⃣ Media Event to be held Tuesday 9/9/2014
4⃣ Sapphire Displays are the Question
5⃣ Apple knows that the #1 Service item for iPhone is Broken Screens
6⃣ Adding a sapphire “glass” to the iPhone eliminates about 85% of the current broken-display issues
8⃣ Sapphire having a hardness of 9
9⃣ Diamond has a hardness of 10
🔟 Gorilla Glass at 5.5 on the MOHS Scale of Mineral Hardness.

ğŸŽ Presently, there are multiple-sources claiming to have inside knowledge (don’t they always) of Apple’s plans speculating that the larger “phablet” handset will be delayed. However, this time writers have cited sources, suggesting that the new iPad Air v2 and the iPad mini v3 may also be pushed back along with the larger iPhone due to supply-line issues. This chatter is illogical. I don’t “buy it.” Apple is not going to bifurcate their iPhone 6 sales, and ruin their opening weekend extravaganza, with the delay of the most sought after Large Display iPhone…

ğŸŽ This is we Know
▶️ Apple is the only source in the know and
▶️ Apple does not talk
▶️ Those that don’t know, are doing all the talking…

ğŸŽ Camp Alpha, says that there are not enough “leaked” component images for the iPhone Air, therefore its release may be delayed until October, 2014. The logic is since there are not enough “leaked” images for the iPhone 6L, therefore it may not exist is laughable. What the folks receiving the “leaks” are not focusing on, the internals for the two iPhone models are basically the same, except for the iPhone Container, the internal connecting cables, the internal Battery and the Display itself.

ğŸŽ Camp Beta, says that the main circuit boards for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L are principally similar. The “leaked” images of the connection cables, extending the main circuit board’s connectivity to the iPhone 6L’s plugs and buttons are Longer, as they have a longer path in the iPhone 6L’s larger cabinet. However, iPhone 6L has reported display fabrication issues with its display and battery.

ğŸŽ Camp Delta, says that there are issues with the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display iPhone model, as battery and display issues may delay its release until 2015, baloney.

ğŸŽ Tim Cook says dob’t draw conclusions about reported component supply-chain issues , as Apple has many alternate supply-chain resources and fabricators supporting its delivery of hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads currently in production.

ğŸŽ Apple builds 90 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L handhelds, that’s a lot of Units. Apple will not have its destiny, the delivery of tens-of-millions of iPhones, rest in the hands of only one fabricators, nor one component supplier, nor one circuit board maker… For safety and soundness of operating, Apple always has parallel production channels for delivery of their unique, high quality iDevices.

ğŸŽ Camp Jimmy, says that Apple will release BOTH iPhone models on the Same Day, even if Apple has to delay the announcement event a few days or weeks.

ğŸŽ IMHO, if Apple were to bifurcate the iPhone 6 models release dates, this would tend to “freeze” some of the iPhone 6 buyers until they have the opportunity to visualize both models side-by-side, self included. With our Cut-Out samples in hand, we’ve both decided on the iPhone 6L whenever its made available.

ğŸŽ If Apple only releases the iPhone 6 (and delays the iPhone 6L release) then there will be no new iPhone 6 sale for us. We will wait for the larger iPhone 6L to be released.

ğŸŽ Last year, 2013, Apple released two iPhone models, the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. On its opening weekend September, 20, 2013, iPhone 5S had $4 Billion in sales with 6 million units sold; iPhone 5C had $1.7 Billion sales with 3 million units sold. That’s 9 million new iPhones in its opening weekend.

ğŸŽ This Year, Sept, 2014, with a joint release of iPhone 6 with a 4.7″ and the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display model, there could be a virtual sales tsunami of over 15 million units sold in its opening weekend the two models with sales of over $10 Billion in profitable revenues. Recall Amazon’s new FIRE Phone flopped with less than 35,000 units sold in its first Month.


ğŸŽ This is a Video Clip of the New iPhone BOX. http://youtu.be/-VxCxfPfoeE


ğŸŽ Apple to release two New Large-Display iPhones on September, 2014, with an all-new redesigned 4.7" model Plus a Larger Display 5.5" version.

ğŸŽ Both Apple iPhone hand-sets poised to take the high-end smartphone market by what’s bern characterized as a “Perfect Storm” in Apple’s iPhone life-cycle.

ğŸŽ Recent reports coming from China, suggests a 128GB storage option serves as an important differentiator between 4.7″ & 5.5″ models.

ğŸŽ Displayed is an image from an Asian “Leaked” announcement brochure showing the two new iPhone 6 models side-by-side, at 4.7″ and 5.5″ display sizes, Both to be released Simultaneously on September 19th, 2014, which matches our prediction made several months ago.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 Air 20th Rumor Roundup Update Summery
1⃣ Apple is 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day, 9/9/2014
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L in full production now
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production now
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model offers 128GB Memory Option
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model to have Sapphire Display “glass”
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model cost $100 more than iPhone 6
5⃣ Apple’s both iPhone 6 models add Temperature and Altimeter Sensors
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls, via iOS8
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ This is the “logic” supporting our theory regarding the potential release date of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6L and the simultaneous release of iOS8. The graphic below displays the time required for each of the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested showing iOS2, iOS3, iOS4, iOS5, iOS6, iOS7 and currently in beta, iOS8.

ğŸŽ A user of China’s Weibo microblogging service posted the image above of the alleged iPhone 6 promotional flyer, showing two models of the device; one featuring a 4.7″ screen and the other one with a 5.5″ screen. According to the flyer, both models of the iPhone 6 will be launched in China on September 19th, the date that was reportedly given away by German wireless-network provider Deutsche Telekom in a May inadvertent message to employees, blocking vacation time.

ğŸŽ iOS6 required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was certified by Apple for iOS6’s final release to the public. iOS7 required 7 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS7 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5S and 5C models about 10 months ago, specifically Friday, September 20, 2013.

ğŸŽ Looking at the “beta” versions to be evaluated and tested for iOS6, it required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS6 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5 Friday, September 19, 2012, however, Media Show to be held 9/9/2014.

ğŸŽ Lets Look at the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested for iOS8. Lets assume (this is analytics part) that the time consumed will likewise be a total of 100 days, before iOS8 cleared for its final release to the public. Since iOS8 will very likely be released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 6, lets calculate the future date.

ğŸŽ The bar-graph below shows that as of July 8, 2014 iOS8 is 40 days in beta testing. Assuming 100 days for completion of iOS8, then using my trusty iPhone’s math App emulating the HP 19B-II calculator, the final version of iOS8 will be loaded into iPhone 6 devices on or before Tuesday 09/02/2014.

ğŸŽ Therefore Friday, September 19, 2012 looks like a reasonable Date for the release of Apple’s iPhone 6 with iOS8 properly pre-loaded into the iPhone with its new Look, Feel, Features, Functions and Cyber Security protection.

July 8, 2014

http://tiny.cc/eyaqix

ğŸŽ Apple released iOS8 beta3 for iPhone and iPad to the developers today, 8/July/2014. This 3rd beta for Apple’s upcoming major software update to iOS8, comes three weeks after the release of beta 2. The iOS8 beta3 has a build number 12a4318c, and may be downloaded from the iOS Dev Center (if you’re a registered developer) and have a compatible iOS device. Learn more about iOS8 beta3 and the links to download it from iOS Dev Center with your registered App Developer account.

ğŸŽ What’s with all the Beta versions for iOS8. The Operating System (the OS) for the iPhone and iPad defines how the device operates and communicates with all the electronic components from a “Machine Language” point of view. The OS is the interface between the App developers applications and the iPhone’s and the iPad’s hardware components. The OS also contains all the newest and most effective Malware, Spyware, anti-Virus algorithms to protect and secure your private and confidential information housed within iPhones and iPads.

ğŸŽ Apple’s software engineers invest hundreds of thousands of hours, literally years, in creating the iOS. Then Apple releases iOS8 beta1 to the development community. For iOS8, iOS7, iOS6, the whole number OS versions, the beta version is released to at the WWDC Conferences held annually in mid-year. This year WWDC 2014 commenced June 2, 2014.

ğŸŽ WWDC attendees, App Developers, a thousand of Apple’s best Engineers, plus other highly respected software engineers, many of which test the features and operability of iOS8. For several weeks these App developers and Apple’s software engineers communicate back-and-forth with information on iOS8 beta1’s operability.

ğŸŽ Apple then STOPS the beta-testing of iOS8 beta1, employs the fixes & improvements identified, then publishes iOS8 beta2 for the Development Community to again examine and test. This multi-segmented beta-testing process may require 100-120 days, and may continue for 6, 7, or 8 beta versions, whatever number of beta-versions are necessary, until Apple is “satisfied” with iOS8’s performance, features, and operability. Only then will Apple release iOS8, the finished version, to the Public, and pre-install the OS8 into the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Air, and subsequent iDevices.

ğŸŽ In the event Apple, the Development community or the Pubic quickly discover iOS issues or glitches, Apple will employ the fixes and release iOS 8.0.2 for example, addressing the software-bugs. iPhones and iPads are very complex, sophisticated communications and computational hand-held devices, that utilize extremely advanced software to operate. And so this process of Apple hardware development and iOS development, leap-frog upon itself, year after year, in effort to provide to all of us iPhones and iPads, that change our lives, and the way we all communicate with each other globally.

ğŸŽ Apple created/acquired a huge Sapphire plant so that it could place razor-thin super-hard covers over their iPhones and the future iWatches. Recall that the only material harder than Sapphire is Diamond, next in line of hardness is way down the line. Imagine having a sapphire display cover on your iPhone. No More Screen “Protectors” ruining the beautiful display in exchange for preventing a scratch… Those days are OVER soon.

ğŸŽ Know this about Apple… Apple detests the notion of iPhone users covering their beautifully designed iPhones, which it so carefully crafted from the very finest materials, is just like “Grandma” covering her beautiful furniture with “plastic” to preserve the fine fabrics. Hopefully sapphire puts iPhone users concern for display-scratches to rest forever.

ğŸŽ My Personal Sapphire Experience. I’ve been wearing a quality RADO watch a several thousand dollar beauty, which has a convex sapphire crystal cover, that after 10 years of continuous use, has not any marks whatsoever… Take a look at this brief video clip showing the resiliency of a paper-thin sapphire display cover. http://youtu.be/5R0_FJ4r73s

ğŸŽ It’s highly likely that mobile power users will see the Larger Display model, plus 128GB Internal Storage capacity, plus Optical Image Stabilization, would all serve as a more capable, multi-use, overall appealing device.

iPhone 5, 6, Air

🔢 Apple iPhone 6 #20 Rumor Roundup Update
1⃣ Apple’s only 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 in full production
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 model offers 128GB Memory Option
5⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 Adds Sapphire Display + Altimeter Sensor
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera uses new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ Reports, leaks, and speculation about the next-generation iPhone are popping out thick and fast now. In the last 24-hours we’ve heard that Apple will be differentiating specifications between the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 models.

1⃣ iPhone 6 large-display 5.5″ model will incorporate InvenSense Optical Image Stabilization technology, but not in the 4.7″ model iPhone 6. We’ve also heard rumors suggesting that both iPhone 6 models will have 32GB and 64GB storge capabilities, suggesting that the entry-level 16GB storage choice may increased to 32GB.

2⃣ Chinese report is now citing sources that suggests that the larger 5.5″ model will make iPhone history by being the first model to offer a 128GB internal storage option.

3⃣ Optical Image Stabilization to be offered on the iPhone 6 5.5″ model.

4⃣ The introduction of two devices with differing display sizes is quite unique too. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Apple is planning on offering a larger disply device. However, the question is, how will Apple differentiate between the two hand-sets in terms of functionality, and prehaps price too.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 is Slated for 20 Million Units Sold in 2014 plus more than Three Times this figure for the new 4.7″ iPhone 6 version.

ğŸŽ Best Guess, New iPhone 6 may be Announced at Apple’s special Presentation Meeting of iPhone 6 held in San Francisco, California, Tuesday, September 9th, Announcing the iPhone 6, its features, and the iPhone 6 Release Date of Friday, September 19th. Invitations likely sent to the Media Tuesday, September 2.

ğŸŽ Here is the Round-up of the most recent rumors out there in cyberspace, from the most reliable supply-line overseas sources. Recall that rumors are not facts.

ğŸŽ Apple believes in Surprises. Apple does Not “Leak” Anything. However, many times “leaks” derived from staff at the components-supply-line, have proven to be more “accurate” than undocumented cyber-chatter. These are the Most Likely specifications of the iPhone 6:

ğŸŽ iPhone released with 2 display choices 4.7″ and 5.5″
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to be 7mm thin
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to have A8 Processor, faster more comprehensive functions
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 1704×960 pixel dimension, 1.636 Megapixels
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 356 dpi for 5″ display or 416 dpi for 4.7″ display
ğŸŽ iPhone to contain new Altimeter/Pressure sensor

ğŸŽ iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP Imager, up from 8MP
ğŸŽ iSight Camera with f2.0 Aperture, up from f2.2
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved image Stabilization
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved ultra-low-light performance
ğŸŽ iSight Video delivers 30fps with full 1920x1080p stabilized resolution

ğŸŽ Notice the graphic below displaying an abstract of the beta-iOS8 Code provided to the Developers at WWDC, which “signals” a new hardware component, an Atmospheric Barometric Pressure sensor, that does not presently exist in any of Apple’s existing iPhone or iPad devices.

ğŸŽ Typically we see new iPhone releases arriving early enough, so that the opening weekend sales occur during Apple’s 4th quarter of their fiscal year. Recall that Apple sold more than 5 million iPhone 5 units in 2012 in the opening weekend; then iPhone sales topped 9 million with the joint-release of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in 2013.

ğŸŽ September, 2014 seems to be a relatively good guess for the iPhone 6 release, likely a combined release of the 4.7″ and 5.5″ versions, which would compare to the previous combined release in 2013. Here is a summary of the recent rumors on this topic

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in September – Industrial Commercial Times
ğŸŽ iOS 8 new operating system release-date which was confirmed at the WWDC 2014 Conference for the fall, 2014
ğŸŽ New iOS software previously has been accompanied with the release of new iPhone hardware iterations.

ğŸŽ Apple typically employs staggered-Country release dates. Major markets like the United States are typically at the front while smaller markets usually lag behind by several weeks and occasionally several months.

ğŸŽ The Headline image shows the relative sizes of the existing iPhone 5 with its 4″ display, shown with the new 4.7″ iPhone 6, and the new iPhone Air with it 5.5″ display. Therefore, by mid-September upgrading iPhone users moving up from the iPhone 4 and 5, and many Android folks, that have been waiting for Apple to deliver larger displays, will have three display sizes to pick from, all having finger-print security, great camera systems, huge inventory of Apps, plus the marvelous Apple ecosystem.

ğŸŽ The combination of factors
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 4
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 5
ğŸŽ Apple receiving Migration from Android due to iPhone’s Large Display offerings
ğŸŽ Apple will receive a “Tsunami of Sales” to the iPhone 6 in 2014 and 2015!

ğŸŽ Apple kept its cards close to its chest about the forthcoming iPhone 6 at this week’s WWDC keynote address; however, new information has arrived from China, suggesting that Apple has solved the battery issues that reportedly plagued production of its expected 5.5″ iPhone 6. Therefore Apple is on course to ship 20 millions of the iPhone Air handsets in 2014.

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – Its 90 Days and Counting, Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 version is Slated for 20 Million Units to Sell plus 4.7″ iPhone 6 to Sell 70 Million in 2014, Plus over 200 Million iPhones to Sell in 2015. This brings the total number of iOS iPhones and iPads to

ğŸŽ 90 Million iPhones to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 200 Million iPhones to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 30 Million iPads to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 60 Million iPads to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 475 Million iPhones and iPads sold as of June, 2014 equals
ğŸŽ 855 Million iPhones and iPads in Service Everywhere

ğŸŽ The news states that Apple is partnering with the China-based Sunwoda Electronics to manufacture batteries for all of these devices, where the battery costs roughly $6.40 each. Apple’s regular battery supplier, Dynapack, will also help fill the battery order.

ğŸŽ While both iPhone 6 variations are expected to ship at the same release-date, it is likely that you may have an easier time finding a 4.7″ iPhone 6 than with the 5.5″ big brother.

ğŸŽ Apple is reportedly planning to manufacture 80 million iPhone 6 handsets for 2014, meaning that the larger “phablet” may be significantly outnumbered by the 4.7″ model by a factor of 4:1. This exclusivity (combined with the larger size of the device) likely suggests that the iPhone Air may come at a higher price point, say a $100 premium. I’ll Take TWO please.

ğŸŽ The Images above and below are all the iPhone Models from the initial iPhone in 2007, to the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and the pro-forma for the iPhone 6 with the 4.7″ display.

ğŸŽ Apple Said to Have Enough Sapphire Glass for Production of Both iPhone 6 Models and iWatch in 2014. Apple reportedly will have enough sapphire glass production for both of its iPhone 6 models as well as the iWatch in 2014, based on the latest supply-chain check at the company’s sapphire-glass manufacturing partner GT Advanced done by analyst Matt Margolis at Seeking Alpha.

ğŸŽ As a result of the most recent supply chain, it is believed that the Mesa, Arizona huge sapphire operation facility, should have ample supply for the new iWatch, the 4.7″ iPhone plus the 5.5″ iPhone with full sapphire cover glass in 2014. Additionally, the maximum sapphire screen capacity of the Mesa, AZ facility may exceed 200 million units/year.

ğŸŽ In February, 2014 Margolis estimated that Apple would be gearing up for mass production of devices with sapphire displays, with equipment in the factory leading to a yield of anywhere from 100 to 200 million ~5″ sapphire displays. A yield of over 200 million sapphire displays as indicated by this latest report means that Apple could possibly produce more than enough sapphire displays for the 4.7″ iPhone 6, the 5.5″ iPhone 6 and the iWatch.

ğŸŽ Previous reports indicated that sapphire display supply constraints may force Apple to reserve the scratch resistant material for its larger iPhone models, with expenses perhaps driving up the retail price for consumers. Other reports suggested that initial sapphire production would target the iWatch instead of the iPhone 6, however the reported volume of raw material and equipment purchased would likely hint at bigger plans for sapphire display production.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 is expected to be released later this year, with the 5.5″ iPhone 6 launching near the end of 2014. In addition to a sapphire display, both phones will likely include a thinner profile, a faster A8 processor, and an improved camera. Meanwhile, the iWatch is expected to be revealed at an October event and may launch later that month.

ğŸŽ This Year’s amazing WWDC keynote address was the most significant product introduction since Apple unveiled the original iPad in 2010. But this time, the revolutionary, magical product wasn’t hardware, it was software, iOS8. While the techno-analysts are arguing about display sizes and CPU speed, Apple quietly has been working on those hardware issues;

ğŸŽ However, Apple has been spending considerable effort, tens of thousands of engineering hours, with integrating these iDevices with each other and MACs, so that there operate consistently, and interchangeably. Integrating… even to the extent of you being able to answer a telephone call on your MAC laptop, as it integrates with your iPhone using iOS8 and MAC using its new Yosemite operating system. Apple is integrating household electronics, security systems, locking systems, garage-door openers, thermostats, lighting systems… you imaging it Apple and their 3rd party developers are delivering.

ğŸŽ Imagine, saying to SIRI, I’m ready for Bed, please lock-up the Apartment, set the lighting, the alarms, the thermostat, and awaken me at 7am tomorrow morning.

ğŸŽ We have NEST which is an automation thermostat that learns our heating and cooling desires, operates with our iPads and iPhones, and saves us about 25% on our electricity, as it “knows” when we are Away and when we Arrive, making Climate Control settings for us, after about a week of learning.

ğŸŽ If coming home early, I can open the NEST App on my iPhone, and start cooling the Apartment as its WiFi integrated, secure and accessible from across the street or cross country. Forgot to turn-off the Heat or the A/C, rushing to the Air Port, no problem, one can access NEST from the Airline Terminal telling it that we’ll be AWAY for 5 days. I’ve written a detailed Article on NEST… just search for NEST at the top of this site.

ğŸŽ Reported last week, Apple has engaged over 200 Chinese Security personnel to investigate and prosecute all the “leaks” that have been originating from Apple’s supply-line regarding the new iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ There are “signals” that lead me to deduce that there may be major Apple product Announcements at WWDC, other than, nifty Apps, the new Apple iOS8 operating software, and the latest and greatest for MACs’ operating system.

ğŸŽ Firstly, this is the first year that WWDC 2014 broadcasted via live-streaming at 1pm eastern time on Monday, June 2. Here is the link for a replay of the Keynote Address from the Moscone Center.

https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2014/

The iPhone 6 really won’t be too much of a surprise whenever it’s finally revealed since we’ve been seeing leaks showing us its shape and size for the past several weeks.

Apple may Announce both iPhone 6 and iPhone Air at one Media Event, however the iPhone 6 may be ship a week or two earlier than the iPhone Air.

📲 Apple is BLOCKING out days in September at all its USA retail stores, apparenty in preparation of New Product release(s). Some secrets just cannot be kept, as too many folks, in too many locations trumps iPhone secrecy. As we get closer to the September release Weekend (typically Friday, Saturday, Sunday) we’ll know more, for all those that are Chomping at the Bit for the latest and greatest technology device, self included.

📲 Jim Wilson’s blog is FAU4U2 on WordPress.com. The Blog link is: http://tiny.cc/e7pwfx We’re proud of the growing number of over 54,000 readers, who stay connected regarding Apple’s iOS personal communications devices, accessories, Apps, and other technology topics. FAU4U2 was created several years ago to provide a forum to answer the many questions that many FAU students throw at me 24/7 in this connected world we live in.

📲 My view, when in a classroom setting, whether as 5th grader, or in Graduate school, on Campus, or otherwise, if a few students have questions, there are likely many more students that just don’t ask, too shy, afraid of asking a “stupid question.” No questions are stupid questions. Therefore, when I get a few questions on a similar topic, I’ll likely create a blog-page on FAU4U2 giving a core response with some related information and research, as there may be millions of folks thinking about that topic.

📲 FAU4U2 Statistics: Presently our readership as of 2012/05/28 is 54,000 from over 30 Countries, reading 498 Articles, housed within 74 categories, marked with 324 Topic Tags for a more refined searching result, 816 Shares, and followed by 20 other blogs. A majority of our readers are from the USA, United Kingdom, Denmark, Netherlands, Australia, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, Mexico, Ukraine, Canada, Indonesia, Estonia, and Italy, listed in order of frequency of the articles read.

📲 Presently in the USA, 54% of all American smartphone owners have iPhones, the remaining smartphone users, the 46% smartphone users, are grouped together (the 12 brands and models of Androids, Blackberry, Google, Samsung, HTC, Motorola). Apple’s market-share in North America is growing. Industry experts expect, with the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone Air, Apple’s market share for their iPhones will grow at an accelerated rate.

📲 Apple iPhone “supply-line” chatter is hot and heavy as the next weeks speed forward. Combine this chatter with several layers of (Chinese) Mandarin translation, it becomes difficult to differentiate between “release date” with “announcement date” and availability. Expressed above is the best we could surmise.

📲 Virtually all of the rumors and schematics pertaining to Apple’s next iPhone center on its ultra-thin design and two screen sizes: 4.7″ and 5.5″ however, up until now we’re kept in the dark as to what screen resolution the larger 5.5-incher (the iPhone Air) might have.

📲 Recall none of these figures, dialog, and proforma-images, comes from Apple officially, but from “snitches” in its supply-line. Of course its no surprise that Apple totally ignores all these “news” reports and rumors.

📲 Other than leaked supply-line secrets, punishable by termination and prosecution by Apple, everything displayed and discussed is conjecture. However, since there are such a vast number of enterprises, engineers, and factory workers involved with the fabrication and assembly of the new iPhone models, whispers arriving from several directions that have a common-thread, could lead an observer to deductions as assembled in this article.

📲 iPhone 6 Release Date: Until Announced, Apple is silent. However, its hard to keep this date a secret with over 400 retail stores. These stores are beginning to “Black-Out” vacation days in September, generally a good sign that Apple requires “all hands on deck” for a new Apple product release. In the next few weeks, these retail store employee black-out dates will be fine-tuned.

📲 iPhone Air, according to new reports the 5.5″ iPhone may have a screen resolution of 1,704-by-960 pixels, a marked improvement over the current 4″ display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c.

📲 iPhone Air’s 1,704-by-900 pixel resolution is essentially a tripled of the “base display resolution” of 568-by-320 pixels. Before the iPhone 5, the iPhone 4 introduced the “Retina Display” representing a resolution of 960-by-640 pixels, which itself is a pixel-doubled 480-by-320 resolution found on the non-Retina 3.5″ original iPhone and the iPhone 3G/3Gs.

📲 Industry experts and analysts are anticipating huge release results, now that Apple is finally delivering LARGER display iPhones. Accordingly the prognosticators are also predicting an large influx of Android users that have been waiting to join the Apple EcoSystem, now that the display size issue is being resolved.

📲 Apple’s Retina Display: Apple’s retina display signifies a range of resolutions depending on the distance from ones Eyes the display is viewed. The human Eye is an organic camera system contain an auto-focus lens which focuses the subject light onto a dense-quilt of photo-sensitive living biological “Cone & Rod” cells. This organic array of specialized living cells, “attached” to the back-wall of the interior of one’s Eye is called the Retina.

📲 Ophthalmologists, have determined if one is reading a book, picture, iPad, iPhone about 14″ away from your Eyes, and if the content of the book’s font characters or pictures are comprised of picture-elements, pixels, the human Eye is not capable if distinguishing individual pixels from each other, if they are packed at a density of 300 pixels per inch, 300 ppi. Recall that 300 ppi means that there are 90,000 pixels within each square inch. The current 4″ diagonal display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c has a pixel density of 326 ppi.

📲 I’m a Believer – Apple is reported to have placed their iPhone 6 order for 90 million units! Looks like FOXCON is going to be very, very busy this year. Recall there are over 475,000,000 iPhones in circulation – there will be a huge number of UpGrades this year, plus a Large number of Migrations from Android to iPhone 6.

📲 Q1, 2014 Apple sold just under 50 million iPhones, therefore ordering 90 million units is giving Apple just a head-start for a what the industry and Apple believes will be a huge iphone 6 launch. In looking at the schematics and the prototypes constructed, Personally, I’m upgrading to the iPhone Air.

📲 The iPhone with its Apps transform the smartphone into a valued business tool, scanner, portable fax, communications device, eMail, Text messaging, and of course a Phone. It will be interesting if Logitech develops one of their UltraThin Keyboard Covers for the iPhone Air, as we both have the Logitech keyboard covers for our iPad minis.

ğŸŽ Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, He is in it, to Win It, Period! This intensity and commitment is terrific for Apple product users, as we are all going to receive better products, and great for Apple’s share holders.

ğŸŽ Speaking of Apple Shareholders. At Apple’s recent quarterly Conference Call, Tim Cook announced that it had a record profit Quarter, the company will be forward splitting its sharers 7-for-1, meaning if you presently own 100 AAPL shares, June 9th Apple will be sending you another 600 shares. This brings the present (6/4/2014) share-price of $644/share for example, to about $92/share, making its shares more “affordable” to an expanded audience of smaller investors.

ğŸŽ Take a look at the Graphic of iPhone Sales. Lets focus on the period of Q1+Q2, 2010 to Q1+Q2, 2014, in this 4 year period iPhone sales grew from 16 million iPhones in 6 months to over 100 million in 6 months. Look at the Slope of the Green trend-line.

ğŸŽ The Line is pointed UP, significantly Up. It does not take a PhD in mathematics and statistics to “extrapolate” what the future quarters may look like, if the the past trends have any possible “predictability” for what Apple’s iPhone future sales may be. No one knows for sure, but my Guess is Apple’s iPhone sales will continue to increase. Likely because Apple continues to reinvent the SmartPhone with innovations that people want.

ğŸŽ Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says, Apple is planning to debut two new iPhone models with two distinct screen sizes in 2014, an unprecedented move for Apple that traditionally has shied away from screen size wars. However a very large survey of iPhone owners, over 60% of their installed-base desires larger display sizes. The graphic of an iPhone may depict the ICON Layout for the new iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ Aside from obvious size differences, the top-of-the-line 5.5″ model will sport a high-resolution display of 1,920-by-1,080 pixels, which represents the same resolution as your large Flat-screen HDTV, translates to 401 pixels per inch, (ppi) in the palm of your hand. The 4.7″ iteration will use a 1,334-by-750 pixel-display to maintain scalability with existing iPhone Apps, representing a pixel density of 326 ppi, meeting or exceeding the “Retina” resolution, Apple set several years ago.

ğŸŽ Both handsets will use Apple’s next-generation A8 system-on-chip with 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM, low temperature polysilicon in-cell touch panels and Touch ID fingerprint security.

ğŸŽ Importantly, a near-field communications chip-set (NFC) and a metal casing are also part of the build. An 10-megapixel rear-facing camera with a f/2.0 aperture is expected, though Apple may improve the camera system to include an improved electronic or optical image stabilization to improve low-light performance, an exciting feature new to the smart-phones, taking the “camera shake” for low light “party” photography.

ğŸŽ As to aesthetics, the iPhones’ bezels are said to be 10% to 20% narrower than the current iPhone 5s, while thinness is pegged at 7.0 millimeters. Kuo also says Apple will move the location of the Top of the iPhone’s sleep/wake button to the right-side of the iPhone, to facilitate one-handed operation. This button-relocation may indicate a new feature that requires frequent pressing of the power button for other functions. Good we could actually need one more button, to eliminate too many soft-menus on the display.

ğŸŽ While the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be within Apple’s guidelines of one-handed operation, Kuo believes Apple may position from a product line-up perspective the 5.5″ version as a higher-end iPhone Air (Phablet) perhaps with an additional $100 premium. I’ll go for it.

ğŸŽ Kuo also believes the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be Apple’s main driver of handset sales in late 2014 and full-year shipments could exceed 60 million units. My guess it will be double or triple this estimate.

ğŸŽ The 5.5″ iPhone Air model may cannibalize some of the sales of the iPad mini, but if the company can marginally reduce the price-tag of its iPad mini, its iPad line-up should remain strong.

ğŸŽ IMHO, its better to cannibalize the iPad mini to yourself, than to be cannibalized by the Competitors, by not having the 5.5″ iPhone Phablet, as has happened over the last 18 months. This is probable the only “mistake” IMHO, Apple has encountered recently. However, who am I to say that Apple made a “misstep” when Apple is delivering 200 million iPhones/year currently. But, what’s not to like with another 30 million units sold.

ğŸŽ We may likely see a terrific migration from Android ➡️ Apple this year and next, perhaps at a rate of a 35% shift ➡️ Apple, with these two larger display choices in Apple’s iPhone line-up. Presently, Android users are migrating ➡️ Apple’s way at a rate of over 20% or more.

ğŸŽ Kuo expects both iPhone 6 models to hit store shelves in the 3rd Quarter of 2014, with Apple keeping the iPhone 5s and 5c on board as mid-tier and low-tier offerings. Due to the expanded handset lineup, the iPhone 4S and 4 will reach end-of-life in 2014.

ğŸŽ Details on Apple’s plans for the 2014 iPhone lineup were published on Tuesday by Japanese blog Macotakara. Citing a trusted source, “Apple has designed two larger iPhone models, sporting 4.7″ and 5.5″ displays, which are final candidates for launch in 2014.”

ğŸŽ Apple’s New iPhone 6 is without a doubt one of the most hotly anticipated smartphone launches of 2014. A dozen or so independent reports suggest that the handset will feature a new larger 4.7″ display and a fresh new design that is thinner than ever. The iPhone 6 is also expected to be accompanied by a new iPhone phablet that will include a 5.5″ screen to help attract new business over from the Android camp.

ğŸŽ Another day, another set of iPhone 6 rumors trickles out from the East Asia. According to the latest report, Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 is ready to enter its mass production phase in May, 2014, with 90 Million Units ordered. The timing would align perfectly with a launch in the 3rd Quarter of 2014. This timing is as expected by most of the other industry watchers. Interestingly, this new report suggests that Apple’s second new iPhone for 2014, the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ Display may be in mass-production until later in the 3rd quarter, 2014 which obviously suggests that it won’t debut until sometime later in 2014.

ğŸŽ We encourage Apple to release both iPhone 6 Models, the 4.75″ and the 5.5″ displays simultaneously. There is such a huge expectation that Apple will be coming out with a “Phablet” (a term Apple despises). If Apple delays the iPhone Air, it may significantly erode the launch of iPhone 6, folks waiting to see both devices, so to choose between the two. Personally, I would wait, and would recommend to my friends, to delay updating until both are announced and visualized. It would be better to delay the iPhone 6, so that it is released with the iPhone Air, than to bifurcate Apple’s iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ According to a report relayed by EMSOne, Taiwan-based Industrial and Commercial Times claims that Apple’s manufacturing partners will begin mass-producing the new iPhone 6 in July. With three months of lead time, that certainly could align well with a late September launch that keeps Apple’s fall iPhone launch pattern alive.

ğŸŽ Interestingly, however, the report claims that Apple’s larger iPhone Phablet may not enter mass-production until sometime in September. If accurate, the device may not debut alongside the iPhone 6, but instead perhaps in later 2014 or early 2015. Remember all these remarks are rumors and “deductions” from supply-line insiders.

ğŸŽ Despite the potential late-start for Apple’s iPhone Phablet production, Industrial and Commercial Times claims that both new iPhones will launch sometime in the fourth quarter this year.

ğŸŽ Apple’s new iPhone 6 is expected to feature an entirely new design with a 4.7″ display, a thinner housing and an upgraded processor. The iPhone phablet is expected to sport a similar design with a larger 5.5″ screen.

ğŸŽ If the reports we have been reading, even come close to representing the handsets Apple actually launches in the 3rd quarter of 2014, we may expect APPLE to crush the sales records the Company set in the fall of 2013, when the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C debuted together, Apple’s first announcement of 2-model on the same Day.

ğŸŽ Recall Apple sold 9 Million iPhones on the opening weekend, 50% greater sales than its previous release weekend of 6 million units. Remember about 55% of All American smartphone users are carrying Apple iPhones.

ğŸŽ Total iPhone sales since its beginning in July, 2007 is presently in excess of 475,000,000 units, Add to this 175,000,000 iPads, the total Apple iOS devices in use equates to roughly 650,000,000. Extend this figure to year end, 12/31/2014, Apple could be sitting with 800,000,000 iPhones and iPads in circulation.. sometime in 2015 Apple may be crossing this 1,000,000,000 threshold (yes that’s One-Billion) globally.

ğŸŽ IMHO, this is exactly what the iPhone Market needs, two serious screen sizes to choose between. The choice of either the 4.7″ display or the 5.5″ display will be perfect Selections to choose from, and will certainly silence the Apple critics for not having a choice of displays. Assuming Apple retains the current Model iPhone 5S, with the New Models, The iphone 6 with its 4.7″ display and the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ display.

Apple offering Four iPhones Models, covering a variety of Display Sizes

ğŸŽ iPhone 4S… 3.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… 99¢
ğŸŽ iPhone 5S… 4.0″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $99
ğŸŽ iPhone 6….. 4.7″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $199
ğŸŽ iPhone Air… 5.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $299

ğŸŽ Lets assume for the moment that Macotakara Publication is accurate regarding the two new display sizes. Lets further assume that Jimmy’s subsidized price “quesstimates” will range from 99¢ for the 3.5″ iPhone 4S to $299 for the 5.5″ iPhone Air, as shown above.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 Rumor Round-Up ⬆️ A Really Big Launch in 2014 ⬆️ Initial Supply Order 90 Million Units ⬆️ 2 Display Sizes ⬆️ 4.7″ & 5.5″ Displays ⬆️ 5G WiFi Connectivity ⬆️ 3 New Sensors: Humidity-Temperature-Atmospheric-Pressure ⬆️ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed

ğŸŽ The Graphic Above: Based upon leaked schematics (blue-line graphic below) discovered by Macotakara of the forthcoming 4.7″ and 5.5″ variants of the iPhone 6, Nowherelse teamed up with concept designer extraordinaire Martin Hajek to create what may be the most plausible look (graphic above) at what Jony Ive’s next iPhone design would look like yet,” John Brownlee reports for Cult of Mac.

ğŸŽ “All the proportions here are perfect: although it features a larger profile, a super thin design, and an edge-to-edge display, the design still features a beautiful internal symmetry that seems worthy of Apple,” Brownlee writes. “There are some changes: the edges are curved, more organic, and the volume buttons have been unified into a single rocker, but otherwise, it looks like an evolution of the current iPhone 5s. Which is exactly what the iPhone 6 would look like.” The Graphic below is the “leaked schematic blue-print.”

ğŸŽ The BIG Question is: Will iPhone Up-Graders pay-up $299 for the base model of the 5.5″ iPhone Air; Plus paying an added $100 for each step for 32GB, 64GB, 128GB Memory upgrades.

ğŸŽ What’s Jimmy Think: From my perspective, and knowing how valuable my iPhone is as a communications device, and the added utility of the iPhone, as a business tool, thanks to the 100+ amazing Apps that I use frequently, I may be “pleased” to pay $500, subsidized, for the 5.5″ iPhone Air with 64GB of storage. (The iPhone Air name is also an assumption).

ğŸŽ Lets look at “JimW’s iPhone 5S” Usage, I have about 22.9 GB remaining of the 64GB iPhone. It could be assumed with the iPhone Air’s larger screen, it may double as “my miniature iPad mini” perhaps needing to step-up the onboard storage to 128GB, matching my iPad mini’s capacity. Unfortunately, one cannot upgrade later, so this is “a one-time decision” of paying-up that extra $100 for Twice the storage, going from 64GB to 128GB, assuming this choice is available. Since I have 128GB on my iPad-Mini-Retina, I’d likely keep the storage on both devices uniform.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 should be a Really Big Launch in 2014 with Two Display Sizes, this quinella of iPhones will be Longer and Wider, Diagonal Measure: 4.7″ and 5.5″ Display Sizes ~ 5G WiFi Connectivity ~ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed ~ Three New Sensors measuring ambient Temperature, Humidity and Atmospheric Pressure.

ğŸŽ iPhone reports have it, that the 2 New iPhones may have internal components to measure Temperature, Atmospheric Pressure and Humidity sensors. It will be interesting how Apple’s engineers “shields” these three sensors from the internal ambient-effects of the warm electronics and that of the liON Polymer battery, as the iPhone’s circuitry operates and the battery discharges, which tend to become warm…

ğŸŽ iPhone Release Schedules. Historically, Apple released its original iPhone in June, 2007 with over a million units sold in its opening weekend. The next iPhone iteration, the iPhone 3G was released in July, 2008. (Notice that we’re focusing your attention to the “Major” releases, not the interim “S” releases).

ğŸŽ The next major iPhone release was June, 2010, with its iPhone 4, the date and model Marilyn and I bought our first iPhones. Subsequently, the iPhone 5 was released in September, 2012 with 6 million units sold in its opening weekend. The “September” release month was somewhat “off schedule” from the other June timings. This 90 delay delay, may have occurred due to some quality-control and/or supply-line issues, pushing back the release a few months; Total guesswork on my part.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is upon us reportedly, and interested folks are wondering when will the iPhone 6 be Announced and Released. My guess, Apple may return to the June, 2014 timing schedule, so that Apple has more time for the Sales of this likely “Block Buster” release with its reported larger 4.7″ brilliant display.

ğŸŽ I’ve predicted that Apple may have a 12 million iPhone weekend, with iPhone 6 new Two-Sizes Release. Also reported, Apple placed its initial order for the iPhone 6, ordered 90 million units from their experienced Apple supplier, Foxconn. Now That’s Confidence.

ğŸŽ The secondary questions, will Apple release Two Phones, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone Air on the same Day, similar to the release of iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C in September, 2013.

ğŸŽ These new models are reportedly expected to have similar button shapes for volume and mute as the iPhone 5c, as well as the same rounded back edges. In addition, it was said that the holes on the bottom of the handset for speaker and microphone will also follow the design established by the iPhone 5C.

ğŸŽ In looking at the leaked blue-prints, for the iPhone 6, the rounded edges give an appearance of the iPad mini, but thinner, without the angled-edges of the present iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ The larger 5.5″ model is said to be 7.5 millimeters thick, which would be the same as the iPad Air. This thinness would reportedly may require the rear iSight camera to protrude slightly from the case, much like with the fifth-generation iPod nano. Last year the Apple had to revise its “thinness” from 7.0mm to 7.5mm to avoid the slight protrusion.

ğŸŽ Macotakara, sourced for the story above, has a respectable track record in “predicting” Apple’s future iPhone plans. Last year, Macotakara revealed
(A) the 2013 iPhone lineup would come in a new range of colors, and it was also
(B) the first to claim that the iPhone 5s would feature a dual LED flash for more natural looking photos, and was
(C) the first to state that the new pill-shaped flash module would be accompanied by a
(D) the circular rear-facing microphone located between the flash and the iSight camera lens.

ğŸŽ The anticipated larger iPhone is rumored to be a high-end iPhone 5c, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will continue to have a plastic back, as the iPod nano achieves its colors with anodized aluminum. The new models are apparently a cross between the design of the iPhone 5c and the seventh-generation iPod nano. According to the source, the new larger iPhone won’t be a replacement for the existing iPhone 5c, but will be akin to a higher-end model.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is going be a really Big launch this year. Apple will finally offer, its reported, a bigger display to compete with the likes of the Galaxy S5 and other flagship Android phones and phablets.

ğŸŽ It’s not that Apple’s iPhone underperforms in any measure, its strictly that 69% of Existing iPhone Users desire a Larger Display, self included. In anticipation of this huge anticipated demand, Apple has reportedly ordered 90 million iPhone 6 units from Foxconn.

ğŸŽ News is picking up momentum and spreading like a viral disease, as a new report indicates that the iPhone 5C’s sales failure could move-up the Release Date of the iPhone 6, to a date earlier in 2014, than initially anticipated. Of course, only Apple knows, everyone else is guessing, and extrapolating.

ğŸŽ One thing for sure, Apple will release the iPhone 6, when its ready for a huge release. Since Apple’s release of the 5S and 5C simultaneously with a 9 Million release-weekend, Apple will surely be capable of having 15 Million of the iPhone 6 models available for its opening Weekend.

ğŸŽ According to the Australian rendition of the International Business Times, there’s a brand new report that has come fast and furious out of DigiTimes, indicating that there are more than a million iPhone 5C handsets sitting on retail and ISP’s shelves the around the world world, where Apple is having trouble designing a plan to move these units economically for the delivery source and Apple’s balance sheet.

ğŸŽ As noted by IBT… “Some consumers believed iPhone 5C failed to prove that it is a cheap iOS device. But the tables could turn when carriers and retailers drop the existing prices to clear the remaining inventory once the iPhone 6 will be released.”

ğŸŽ The 5C issue (this is a media-invented issue) could spell big trouble for Apple if the iPhone 5C proves to be a hamper in their profit-stride and the “Wall Street Expectations game.” One Duck writes an absurd story and the rest of the Quacks repeat it. (Take a look at an Article I’ve written regarding what I believe is an iPhone 5C success story http://tiny.cc/e5jhdx) However, Apple could “make up for the 5C matter” with very strong quarterly sales by the release of an Exciting iPhone 6, particularly if Apple gets to or Close to a 5″ Display combined with the very successful and popular golden iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ iPhone is due to be released later this year. The iPhone 6 seemingly will be packed with amazing features that will make it fly-off the shelves.

ğŸŽ Several innovative features are likely to set-up the iPhone 6 as the new Leader in the smartphones market, significantly outperforming (Galaxy’s S5 a similar dud as was Apple’s 5C) along any other releases from its competitors coming out the next few months.

ğŸŽ Since even Samsung being disappointed with the apparent “flop” of the Galaxy S5, this leaves the “Door Wide Open” for Apple to capture a relatively large number of folks ready to migrate from Android.

ğŸŽ Rumors have it that Apple is going for a wider and bigger display for the new iPhone 6. But that’s not the only thing that’s changing. Apple now has a new patent called ‘Systems and Methods for Preventing Light Guide Plate Scratching Artifacts‘ which leads us to believe that the iPhone 6 display technology will be truly innovative.

ğŸŽ Apple has stated that iPhone 6 will probably have “the most gorgeous display rendering ever in a mobile device.” Not only will it look modern and chic but the screen may come with a neat protection layer.

ğŸŽ It looks like the Retina display panel will be replaced with Quantum Dot technology which will come with sharper, crisper colors and improved brightness renditions.

ğŸŽ Knowing how important battery life is, apparently, iPhone 6 will come equipped with a battery that not only will it last longer and give users longer talk-time, but will also feature a source of energy that will replenish its electrical power very quickly.

ğŸŽ There have also been rumors about wireless charging, no need to elaborate on what a great feature would that be and how iPhone 6 would become the public’s favorite. Wireless Charging typically means that the device (the iPhone) would have a flat-thin-coil inside the rear cover.

ğŸŽ If you placed the iPhone onto a charger-platform, alternating current is electro-magnetically transmitted through the rear cover, “exciting” the internal flat-thin-coil. This energy is then converted into DC, direct current, which is managed and stored into the LiON battery. You may recall the Palm-PRE had this capability a decade ago. The charging platform and the iPhone could have internal ceramic magnets to that the iPhone is held in position on the “charger.”

ğŸŽ Wi-Fi signal improvements with the famous 802.11ac (a/k/a 5G WiFi) offering break-neck speed, and longer connectivity range, is rumored to be featured on the new iPhone 6. If this is true, users will be able to download or stream HD films in a matter of seconds even for very large HDTV video movie files. Gigabit speed equates to roughly 250,000,000 bYtes per second.

ğŸŽ In perspective, a typical 8 mega-pixel camera captures that have a file size of 5 Mega bYtes, thats a 5,000,000 byte file size. An iPhone that can transmit or receive data at Gigabit speeds, means that one could upload (or download) 50 full resolution images in ONE second. One one could download a full-length, 2 hour High Definition Movie in about 15 seconds.

ğŸŽ By design, 802.11ac is intended to operate only in the 5 GHz band. This avoids much of the interference at 2.4 GHz, including Bluetooth headsets, microwave ovens, and provides a strong incentive for users to upgrade their mobile devices to be dual band so that the 5 GHz band is more universally usable. This choice also streamlines the IEEE process by avoiding the possibility of contention between 802.11 and 802.15 proponents.

ğŸŽ Asus RT-AC66U 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless, at $189 these new Routers handle 5G. RT-AC66U offers very fast Wi-Fi on the 5GHz frequency band, both with Wireless-N clients and AC clients. In fact it’s the fastest of the few 802.11ac routers currently available on the market. The router also has very good range and its USB ports provide more than just the support for external storage and printers.

ğŸŽ To put Apple’s reported order in perspective, the Apple sold 51 million iPhones during its fiscal quarter ending Dec. 28th, 2013. Apple is anticipating a very large a leap in sales.

ğŸŽ The iPhone 6 may be fitted with a super-strong Sapphire crystal display, a more advanced camera, lens, image stabilization, an f2.0 aperture, and perhaps wireless charging. In addition, there are rumors that the iPhone 6 will feature a faster new A8 chip with a quad-core CPU and graphics.

ğŸŽ According to a Citigroup Global-Markets analyst, cited by the Commercial Times in China, Apple’s smartphone shipments are expected to rise a whopping 23% in 2014, compared to 13% increase in sales last year.

ğŸŽ IMHO if Apple delivers the iPhone 6 with a Display that contains a meaningful increase to 4.75" or 5.0" Apple iPhone will sell in huge numbers.

ğŸŽ Overall, analysts in IDC predict that smartphone growth will slow somewhat in 2014 to 19.3% growth, down from 39.2% growth factor in 2013.

ğŸŽ The reason: average smartphone prices keep dropping, as demand shifts to China. In other words, the iPhone 6 will likely be a huge seller, helping it stay ahead of the industry average in terms of growth and profitability.

ğŸŽ Note that Galaxy S5 was a big flop, disappointing users, investors, and Samsung, as demand for Samsung’s newest offering was not very exciting. If the iPhone goes to a 5" display its Demand will Explode.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 – 23rd Rumor Roundup 1⃣ Apple 10 Days to go 2⃣ Announce TWO new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L 3⃣ Media Event Tuesday 9/9/2014 4⃣ Both iPhones Released Friday September 19, 2004 @ 8AM Eastern ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

1409422354.jpg

ğŸŽ Battle of the iPhone 6 Rumors is in Full Bloom and Contradiction, now that we are just 10 days before Apple’s Media Event of September 9th.

ğŸŽ Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap has been blighted with component issues, manufacturing problems, quality control, relating to the production of the iPhone 6 and its sibling iPhone 6L with its 5.5″ display.

ğŸŽ We have been noticing online “mock-ups” of these two new models, borne from schematics apparently captured from FOXcomm computer screens. It seemed to us that the iPhone 6L looked much larger than the iPhone 6. This motivated me to make white-board cut-outs for the iPhone 6L measuring 158mm by 78mm and the iPhone 6 measuring 138mm by 67mm.

ğŸŽ This week having the white-board cutouts from the dimensions shown on FOXconn’s computer screens photographed at China’s plant. I did not bother creating a home-page screen, as we were singularly interested in the feel of the two devices, their length, width and holding both side-by-side. Additionally I was interested in holding the iPhone 6 and 6L Samples next to several other competitors smartphones, such as Samsung and LG offeerings.

ğŸŽ CHOPS Lobster Bar is quality 5⭐️ down town Boca Raton establishment that Marilyn and I frequent localally. The bar has 16 seats, serves a quality clientele as the dining room enjoys $100/person average dinners, tax, title, and tip. At the Bar, all the folks carry the best smartphones, with about 75% or more carrying iPhones. I’ve read that Apple enjoys about 54% market share in North America. My observations in south Florida see a significantly higher iPhone share.

ğŸŽ Compare iPhone 6 and 6L with Samsung, LG and other 4.7″ to 5.5″ display smartphones. Having handled the two Mock-Ups iPhone 6 & 6L, they have a nice feel in the hands, both having the same aspect ratios of Apple’s iPhone 5 and 5S, meaning that ratio of the smartphone’s Length to its Width.

ğŸŽ We focused firstly on the 6L as all the “Talking Heads” have been remarking these “huge” Phablets. We were actually surprised with apple’s choice of the i/phone 6L, 158mm by 78mm Thinner/Longer shape. It feels good in the hands, and we have samller hands than many. The iPhone 6 measuring 138mm by 67mm is a modest increases from the iPhone 5’s measurement of 123 mm by 58mm.

ğŸŽ Comparing the iPhone 6L to the LG and Samsung Phablets, which have 5.5″ to 5.7″ displays, was surprising. The new iPhone 6L is definitely “Thinner” then the Phablet competition, making it more confortable to hold in the hand. Samsung’s and LG’s were “Fatter” and harder to hold with one hand. Since Marilyn and I do a lot of things with our iPhone 5’s other than Phone Calls, we were very interested in the iPhone 6L for its larger display offering greater utility while web Browsing, crafting emails, image editing…

ğŸŽ Holding the two white-board “samples” in hand, made it easier to decide which model is best for Marilyn and myself. Before handling these cut-outs, Marilyn was satisfied with the 4.7″ choice. After holding the two Card-Board cut-outs, Marilyn changed her choice for the Larger iPhone 6L. Therefore once Apple makes the new iPhone’s available on-Line, we will pre-order two iPhone 6L, Marilyn’s with 64BG storage, as she is almost full with the 32GB iPhone 5; I will upgrade to 128GB storage as I am using most of the 64GB on my iPhone 5.

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 ~ iPhone 6L, 23nd Rumor Roundup
1⃣ Apple is 10 Days & Counting
2⃣ Announce TWO new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L
3⃣ Media Event to be held Tuesday 9/9/2014 Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 and 6L
4⃣ Sapphire Displays are the Question. Apple knows that the #1 Service item for iPhone is Broken Screens. Adding a sapphire “glass” to the iPhone eliminates about 85% of the current broken-display issues. Sapphire having a hardness of 9 where diamond has a hardness of 10, and traditional “Gorilla Glass at 5.5 on the MOHS Scale of Mineral Hardness.

ğŸŽ Presently, there are multiple-sources claiming to have inside knowledge (don’t they always) of Apple’s plans speculating that the larger “phablet” handset will be delayed. However, this time writers have cited sources, suggesting that the new iPad Air v2 and the iPad mini v3 may also be pushed back along with the larger iPhone due to supply-line issues. All of this chatter is illogical. I don’t “buy it.” Apple is not going to bifurcate their iPhone 6 sales with the delay of the most sought Large Display iPhone…

ğŸŽ This is we Know: Apple is the only source in the know, who does not talk ~ Those that don’t really know are those that are doing the talking…

ğŸŽ Camp Alpha, says that there are not enough “leaked” component images for the iPhone Air, therefore its release may be delayed until October, 2014. The logic is since there are not enough “leaked” images for the iPhone 6L, therefore it may not exist is laughable. What the folks receiving the “leaks” are not focusing on, the internals for the two iPhone models are basically the same, except for the iPhone Container, the internal connecting cables, the internal Battery and the Display itself.

ğŸŽ Camp Beta, says that the main circuit boards for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L are principally similar. The “leaked” images of the connection cables, extending the main circuit board’s connectivity to the iPhone 6L’s plugs and buttons are Longer, as they have a longer path in the iPhone 6L’s larger cabinet. However, iPhone 6L has reported display fabrication issues with its display and battery.

ğŸŽ Camp Delta, says that there are issues with the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display iPhone model, as battery and display issues may delay its release until 2015, baloney.

ğŸŽ Tim Cook says dob’t draw conclusions about reported component supply-chain issues , as Apple has many alternate supply-chain resources and fabricators supporting its delivery of hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads currently in production.

ğŸŽ Apple builds 90 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L handhelds, that’s a lot of Units. Apple will not have its destiny, the delivery of tens-of-millions of iPhones, rest in the hands of only one fabricators, nor one component supplier, nor one circuit board maker… For safety and soundness of operating, Apple always has parallel production channels for delivery of their unique, high quality iDevices.

ğŸŽ Camp Jimmy, says that Apple will release BOTH iPhone models on the Same Day, even if Apple has to delay the announcement event a few days or weeks.

ğŸŽ IMHO, if Apple were to bifurcate the iPhone 6 models release dates, this would tend to “freeze” some of the iPhone 6 buyers until they have the opportunity to visualize both models side-by-side, self included. With our Cut-Out samples in hand, we’ve both decided on the iPhone 6L whenever its made available.

ğŸŽ If Apple only releases the iPhone 6 (and delays the iPhone 6L release) then there will be no new iPhone 6 sale for us. We will wait for the larger iPhone 6L to be released.

ğŸŽ Last year, 2013, Apple released two iPhone models, the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. On its opening weekend September, 20, 2013, iPhone 5S had $4 Billion in sales with 6 million units sold; iPhone 5C had $1.7 Billion sales with 3 million units sold. That’s 9 million new iPhones in its opening weekend.

ğŸŽ This Year, Sept, 2014, with a joint release of iPhone 6 with a 4.7″ and the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display model, there could be a virtual sales tsunami of over 15 million units sold in its opening weekend the two models with sales of over $10 Billion in profitable revenues. Recall Amazon’s new FIRE Phone flopped with less than 35,000 units sold in its first Month.


ğŸŽ This is a Video Clip of the New iPhone BOX. http://youtu.be/-VxCxfPfoeE


ğŸŽ Apple to release two New Large-Display iPhones on September, 2014, with an all-new redesigned 4.7" model Plus a Larger Display 5.5" version.

ğŸŽ Both Apple iPhone hand-sets poised to take the high-end smartphone market by what’s bern characterized as a “Perfect Storm” in Apple’s iPhone life-cycle.

ğŸŽ Recent reports coming from China, suggests a 128GB storage option serves as an important differentiator between 4.7″ & 5.5″ models.

ğŸŽ Displayed is an image from an Asian “Leaked” announcement brochure showing the two new iPhone 6 models side-by-side, at 4.7″ and 5.5″ display sizes, Both to be released Simultaneously on September 19th, 2014, which matches our prediction made several months ago.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 Air 20th Rumor Roundup Update Summery
1⃣ Apple is 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day, 9/9/2014
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L in full production now
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production now
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model offers 128GB Memory Option
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model to have Sapphire Display “glass”
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model cost $100 more than iPhone 6
5⃣ Apple’s both iPhone 6 models add Temperature and Altimeter Sensors
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls, via iOS8
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ This is the “logic” supporting our theory regarding the potential release date of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6L and the simultaneous release of iOS8. The graphic below displays the time required for each of the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested showing iOS2, iOS3, iOS4, iOS5, iOS6, iOS7 and currently in beta, iOS8.

ğŸŽ A user of China’s Weibo microblogging service posted the image above of the alleged iPhone 6 promotional flyer, showing two models of the device; one featuring a 4.7″ screen and the other one with a 5.5″ screen. According to the flyer, both models of the iPhone 6 will be launched in China on September 19th, the date that was reportedly given away by German wireless-network provider Deutsche Telekom in a May inadvertent message to employees, blocking vacation time.

ğŸŽ iOS6 required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was certified by Apple for iOS6’s final release to the public. iOS7 required 7 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS7 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5S and 5C models about 10 months ago, specifically Friday, September 20, 2013.

ğŸŽ Looking at the “beta” versions to be evaluated and tested for iOS6, it required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS6 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5 Friday, September 19, 2012, however, Media Show to be held 9/9/2014.

ğŸŽ Lets Look at the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested for iOS8. Lets assume (this is analytics part) that the time consumed will likewise be a total of 100 days, before iOS8 cleared for its final release to the public. Since iOS8 will very likely be released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 6, lets calculate the future date.

ğŸŽ The bar-graph below shows that as of July 8, 2014 iOS8 is 40 days in beta testing. Assuming 100 days for completion of iOS8, then using my trusty iPhone’s math App emulating the HP 19B-II calculator, the final version of iOS8 will be loaded into iPhone 6 devices on or before Tuesday 09/02/2014.

ğŸŽ Therefore Friday, September 19, 2012 looks like a reasonable Date for the release of Apple’s iPhone 6 with iOS8 properly pre-loaded into the iPhone with its new Look, Feel, Features, Functions and Cyber Security protection.

July 8, 2014

http://tiny.cc/eyaqix

ğŸŽ Apple released iOS8 beta3 for iPhone and iPad to the developers today, 8/July/2014. This 3rd beta for Apple’s upcoming major software update to iOS8, comes three weeks after the release of beta 2. The iOS8 beta3 has a build number 12a4318c, and may be downloaded from the iOS Dev Center (if you’re a registered developer) and have a compatible iOS device. Learn more about iOS8 beta3 and the links to download it from iOS Dev Center with your registered App Developer account.

ğŸŽ What’s with all the Beta versions for iOS8. The Operating System (the OS) for the iPhone and iPad defines how the device operates and communicates with all the electronic components from a “Machine Language” point of view. The OS is the interface between the App developers applications and the iPhone’s and the iPad’s hardware components. The OS also contains all the newest and most effective Malware, Spyware, anti-Virus algorithms to protect and secure your private and confidential information housed within iPhones and iPads.

ğŸŽ Apple’s software engineers invest hundreds of thousands of hours, literally years, in creating the iOS. Then Apple releases iOS8 beta1 to the development community. For iOS8, iOS7, iOS6, the whole number OS versions, the beta version is released to at the WWDC Conferences held annually in mid-year. This year WWDC 2014 commenced June 2, 2014.

ğŸŽ WWDC attendees, App Developers, a thousand of Apple’s best Engineers, plus other highly respected software engineers, many of which test the features and operability of iOS8. For several weeks these App developers and Apple’s software engineers communicate back-and-forth with information on iOS8 beta1’s operability.

ğŸŽ Apple then STOPS the beta-testing of iOS8 beta1, employs the fixes & improvements identified, then publishes iOS8 beta2 for the Development Community to again examine and test. This multi-segmented beta-testing process may require 100-120 days, and may continue for 6, 7, or 8 beta versions, whatever number of beta-versions are necessary, until Apple is “satisfied” with iOS8’s performance, features, and operability. Only then will Apple release iOS8, the finished version, to the Public, and pre-install the OS8 into the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Air, and subsequent iDevices.

ğŸŽ In the event Apple, the Development community or the Pubic quickly discover iOS issues or glitches, Apple will employ the fixes and release iOS 8.0.2 for example, addressing the software-bugs. iPhones and iPads are very complex, sophisticated communications and computational hand-held devices, that utilize extremely advanced software to operate. And so this process of Apple hardware development and iOS development, leap-frog upon itself, year after year, in effort to provide to all of us iPhones and iPads, that change our lives, and the way we all communicate with each other globally.

ğŸŽ Apple created/acquired a huge Sapphire plant so that it could place razor-thin super-hard covers over their iPhones and the future iWatches. Recall that the only material harder than Sapphire is Diamond, next in line of hardness is way down the line. Imagine having a sapphire display cover on your iPhone. No More Screen “Protectors” ruining the beautiful display in exchange for preventing a scratch… Those days are OVER soon.

ğŸŽ Know this about Apple… Apple detests the notion of iPhone users covering their beautifully designed iPhones, which it so carefully crafted from the very finest materials, is just like “Grandma” covering her beautiful furniture with “plastic” to preserve the fine fabrics. Hopefully sapphire puts iPhone users concern for display-scratches to rest forever.

ğŸŽ My Personal Sapphire Experience. I’ve been wearing a quality RADO watch a several thousand dollar beauty, which has a convex sapphire crystal cover, that after 10 years of continuous use, has not any marks whatsoever… Take a look at this brief video clip showing the resiliency of a paper-thin sapphire display cover. http://youtu.be/5R0_FJ4r73s

ğŸŽ It’s highly likely that mobile power users will see the Larger Display model, plus 128GB Internal Storage capacity, plus Optical Image Stabilization, would all serve as a more capable, multi-use, overall appealing device.

iPhone 5, 6, Air

🔢 Apple iPhone 6 #20 Rumor Roundup Update
1⃣ Apple’s only 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 in full production
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 model offers 128GB Memory Option
5⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 Adds Sapphire Display + Altimeter Sensor
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera uses new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ Reports, leaks, and speculation about the next-generation iPhone are popping out thick and fast now. In the last 24-hours we’ve heard that Apple will be differentiating specifications between the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 models.

1⃣ iPhone 6 large-display 5.5″ model will incorporate InvenSense Optical Image Stabilization technology, but not in the 4.7″ model iPhone 6. We’ve also heard rumors suggesting that both iPhone 6 models will have 32GB and 64GB storge capabilities, suggesting that the entry-level 16GB storage choice may increased to 32GB.

2⃣ Chinese report is now citing sources that suggests that the larger 5.5″ model will make iPhone history by being the first model to offer a 128GB internal storage option.

3⃣ Optical Image Stabilization to be offered on the iPhone 6 5.5″ model.

4⃣ The introduction of two devices with differing display sizes is quite unique too. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Apple is planning on offering a larger disply device. However, the question is, how will Apple differentiate between the two hand-sets in terms of functionality, and prehaps price too.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 is Slated for 20 Million Units Sold in 2014 plus more than Three Times this figure for the new 4.7″ iPhone 6 version.

ğŸŽ Best Guess, New iPhone 6 may be Announced at Apple’s special Presentation Meeting of iPhone 6 held in San Francisco, California, Tuesday, September 9th, Announcing the iPhone 6, its features, and the iPhone 6 Release Date of Friday, September 19th. Invitations likely sent to the Media Tuesday, September 2.

ğŸŽ Here is the Round-up of the most recent rumors out there in cyberspace, from the most reliable supply-line overseas sources. Recall that rumors are not facts.

ğŸŽ Apple believes in Surprises. Apple does Not “Leak” Anything. However, many times “leaks” derived from staff at the components-supply-line, have proven to be more “accurate” than undocumented cyber-chatter. These are the Most Likely specifications of the iPhone 6:

ğŸŽ iPhone released with 2 display choices 4.7″ and 5.5″
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to be 7mm thin
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to have A8 Processor, faster more comprehensive functions
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 1704×960 pixel dimension, 1.636 Megapixels
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 356 dpi for 5″ display or 416 dpi for 4.7″ display
ğŸŽ iPhone to contain new Altimeter/Pressure sensor

ğŸŽ iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP Imager, up from 8MP
ğŸŽ iSight Camera with f2.0 Aperture, up from f2.2
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved image Stabilization
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved ultra-low-light performance
ğŸŽ iSight Video delivers 30fps with full 1920x1080p stabilized resolution

ğŸŽ Notice the graphic below displaying an abstract of the beta-iOS8 Code provided to the Developers at WWDC, which “signals” a new hardware component, an Atmospheric Barometric Pressure sensor, that does not presently exist in any of Apple’s existing iPhone or iPad devices.

ğŸŽ Typically we see new iPhone releases arriving early enough, so that the opening weekend sales occur during Apple’s 4th quarter of their fiscal year. Recall that Apple sold more than 5 million iPhone 5 units in 2012 in the opening weekend; then iPhone sales topped 9 million with the joint-release of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in 2013.

ğŸŽ September, 2014 seems to be a relatively good guess for the iPhone 6 release, likely a combined release of the 4.7″ and 5.5″ versions, which would compare to the previous combined release in 2013. Here is a summary of the recent rumors on this topic
ğŸŽ iNew iPhone launch as early as September – Nikkei
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in August or September – Steve Milunovich UBS via Barrons
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in the fall – Andy Hargreaves at Pacific Crest via Business Insider
ğŸŽ New iPhone scheduled for third quarter 2014 – ZDNet Korea
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in September – Ming-Chi Kuo via MacRumors
ğŸŽ New iPhone 6 in September – iFun
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in August or September – Economic Daily News
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in September – Industrial Commercial Times
ğŸŽ iOS 8 new operating system release-date which was confirmed at the WWDC 2014 Conference for the fall, 2014
ğŸŽ New iOS software previously has been accompanied with the release of new iPhone hardware iterations.

ğŸŽ Apple typically employs staggered-Country release dates. Major markets like the United States are typically at the front while smaller markets usually lag behind by several weeks and occasionally several months.

ğŸŽ The Headline image shows the relative sizes of the existing iPhone 5 with its 4″ display, shown with the new 4.7″ iPhone 6, and the new iPhone Air with it 5.5″ display. Therefore, by mid-September upgrading iPhone users moving up from the iPhone 4 and 5, and many Android folks, that have been waiting for Apple to deliver larger displays, will have three display sizes to pick from, all having finger-print security, great camera systems, huge inventory of Apps, plus the marvelous Apple ecosystem.

ğŸŽ The combination of factors
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 4
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 5
ğŸŽ Apple receiving Migration from Android due to iPhone’s Large Display offerings
ğŸŽ Apple will receive a “Tsunami of Sales” to the iPhone 6 in 2014 and 2015!

ğŸŽ Apple kept its cards close to its chest about the forthcoming iPhone 6 at this week’s WWDC keynote address; however, new information has arrived from China, suggesting that Apple has solved the battery issues that reportedly plagued production of its expected 5.5″ iPhone 6. Therefore Apple is on course to ship 20 millions of the iPhone Air handsets in 2014.

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – Its 90 Days and Counting, Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 version is Slated for 20 Million Units to Sell plus 4.7″ iPhone 6 to Sell 70 Million in 2014, Plus over 200 Million iPhones to Sell in 2015. This brings the total number of iOS iPhones and iPads to

ğŸŽ 90 Million iPhones to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 200 Million iPhones to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 30 Million iPads to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 60 Million iPads to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 475 Million iPhones and iPads sold as of June, 2014 equals
ğŸŽ 855 Million iPhones and iPads in Service Everywhere

ğŸŽ The news states that Apple is partnering with the China-based Sunwoda Electronics to manufacture batteries for all of these devices, where the battery costs roughly $6.40 each. Apple’s regular battery supplier, Dynapack, will also help fill the battery order.

ğŸŽ While both iPhone 6 variations are expected to ship at the same release-date, it is likely that you may have an easier time finding a 4.7″ iPhone 6 than with the 5.5″ big brother.

ğŸŽ Apple is reportedly planning to manufacture 80 million iPhone 6 handsets for 2014, meaning that the larger “phablet” may be significantly outnumbered by the 4.7″ model by a factor of 4:1. This exclusivity (combined with the larger size of the device) likely suggests that the iPhone Air may come at a higher price point, say a $100 premium. I’ll Take TWO please.

ğŸŽ The Images above and below are all the iPhone Models from the initial iPhone in 2007, to the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and the pro-forma for the iPhone 6 with the 4.7″ display.

ğŸŽ Apple Said to Have Enough Sapphire Glass for Production of Both iPhone 6 Models and iWatch in 2014. Apple reportedly will have enough sapphire glass production for both of its iPhone 6 models as well as the iWatch in 2014, based on the latest supply-chain check at the company’s sapphire-glass manufacturing partner GT Advanced done by analyst Matt Margolis at Seeking Alpha.

ğŸŽ As a result of the most recent supply chain, it is believed that the Mesa, Arizona huge sapphire operation facility, should have ample supply for the new iWatch, the 4.7″ iPhone plus the 5.5″ iPhone with full sapphire cover glass in 2014. Additionally, the maximum sapphire screen capacity of the Mesa, AZ facility may exceed 200 million units/year.

ğŸŽ In February, 2014 Margolis estimated that Apple would be gearing up for mass production of devices with sapphire displays, with equipment in the factory leading to a yield of anywhere from 100 to 200 million ~5″ sapphire displays. A yield of over 200 million sapphire displays as indicated by this latest report means that Apple could possibly produce more than enough sapphire displays for the 4.7″ iPhone 6, the 5.5″ iPhone 6 and the iWatch.

ğŸŽ Previous reports indicated that sapphire display supply constraints may force Apple to reserve the scratch resistant material for its larger iPhone models, with expenses perhaps driving up the retail price for consumers. Other reports suggested that initial sapphire production would target the iWatch instead of the iPhone 6, however the reported volume of raw material and equipment purchased would likely hint at bigger plans for sapphire display production.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 is expected to be released later this year, with the 5.5″ iPhone 6 launching near the end of 2014. In addition to a sapphire display, both phones will likely include a thinner profile, a faster A8 processor, and an improved camera. Meanwhile, the iWatch is expected to be revealed at an October event and may launch later that month.

ğŸŽ This Year’s amazing WWDC keynote address was the most significant product introduction since Apple unveiled the original iPad in 2010. But this time, the revolutionary, magical product wasn’t hardware, it was software, iOS8. While the techno-analysts are arguing about display sizes and CPU speed, Apple quietly has been working on those hardware issues;

ğŸŽ However, Apple has been spending considerable effort, tens of thousands of engineering hours, with integrating these iDevices with each other and MACs, so that there operate consistently, and interchangeably. Integrating… even to the extent of you being able to answer a telephone call on your MAC laptop, as it integrates with your iPhone using iOS8 and MAC using its new Yosemite operating system. Apple is integrating household electronics, security systems, locking systems, garage-door openers, thermostats, lighting systems… you imaging it Apple and their 3rd party developers are delivering.

ğŸŽ Imagine, saying to SIRI, I’m ready for Bed, please lock-up the Apartment, set the lighting, the alarms, the thermostat, and awaken me at 7am tomorrow morning.

ğŸŽ We have NEST which is an automation thermostat that learns our heating and cooling desires, operates with our iPads and iPhones, and saves us about 25% on our electricity, as it “knows” when we are Away and when we Arrive, making Climate Control settings for us, after about a week of learning.

ğŸŽ If coming home early, I can open the NEST App on my iPhone, and start cooling the Apartment as its WiFi integrated, secure and accessible from across the street or cross country. Forgot to turn-off the Heat or the A/C, rushing to the Air Port, no problem, one can access NEST from the Airline Terminal telling it that we’ll be AWAY for 5 days. I’ve written a detailed Article on NEST… just search for NEST at the top of this site.

ğŸŽ Reported last week, Apple has engaged over 200 Chinese Security personnel to investigate and prosecute all the “leaks” that have been originating from Apple’s supply-line regarding the new iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ There are “signals” that lead me to deduce that there may be major Apple product Announcements at WWDC, other than, nifty Apps, the new Apple iOS8 operating software, and the latest and greatest for MACs’ operating system.

ğŸŽ Firstly, this is the first year that WWDC 2014 broadcasted via live-streaming at 1pm eastern time on Monday, June 2. Here is the link for a replay of the Keynote Address from the Moscone Center.

https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2014/

The iPhone 6 really won’t be too much of a surprise whenever it’s finally revealed since we’ve been seeing leaks showing us its shape and size for the past several weeks.

Apple may Announce both iPhone 6 and iPhone Air at one Media Event, however the iPhone 6 may be ship a week or two earlier than the iPhone Air.

📲 Apple is BLOCKING out days in September at all its USA retail stores, apparenty in preparation of New Product release(s). Some secrets just cannot be kept, as too many folks, in too many locations trumps iPhone secrecy. As we get closer to the September release Weekend (typically Friday, Saturday, Sunday) we’ll know more, for all those that are Chomping at the Bit for the latest and greatest technology device, self included.

📲 Jim Wilson’s blog is FAU4U2 on WordPress.com. The Blog link is: http://tiny.cc/e7pwfx We’re proud of the growing number of over 54,000 readers, who stay connected regarding Apple’s iOS personal communications devices, accessories, Apps, and other technology topics. FAU4U2 was created several years ago to provide a forum to answer the many questions that many FAU students throw at me 24/7 in this connected world we live in.

📲 My view, when in a classroom setting, whether as 5th grader, or in Graduate school, on Campus, or otherwise, if a few students have questions, there are likely many more students that just don’t ask, too shy, afraid of asking a “stupid question.” No questions are stupid questions. Therefore, when I get a few questions on a similar topic, I’ll likely create a blog-page on FAU4U2 giving a core response with some related information and research, as there may be millions of folks thinking about that topic.

📲 FAU4U2 Statistics: Presently our readership as of 2012/05/28 is 54,000 from over 30 Countries, reading 498 Articles, housed within 74 categories, marked with 324 Topic Tags for a more refined searching result, 816 Shares, and followed by 20 other blogs. A majority of our readers are from the USA, United Kingdom, Denmark, Netherlands, Australia, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, Mexico, Ukraine, Canada, Indonesia, Estonia, and Italy, listed in order of frequency of the articles read.

📲 Presently in the USA, 54% of all American smartphone owners have iPhones, the remaining smartphone users, the 46% smartphone users, are grouped together (the 12 brands and models of Androids, Blackberry, Google, Samsung, HTC, Motorola). Apple’s market-share in North America is growing. Industry experts expect, with the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone Air, Apple’s market share for their iPhones will grow at an accelerated rate.

📲 Apple iPhone “supply-line” chatter is hot and heavy as the next weeks speed forward. Combine this chatter with several layers of (Chinese) Mandarin translation, it becomes difficult to differentiate between “release date” with “announcement date” and availability. Expressed above is the best we could surmise.

📲 Virtually all of the rumors and schematics pertaining to Apple’s next iPhone center on its ultra-thin design and two screen sizes: 4.7″ and 5.5″ however, up until now we’re kept in the dark as to what screen resolution the larger 5.5-incher (the iPhone Air) might have.

📲 Recall none of these figures, dialog, and proforma-images, comes from Apple officially, but from “snitches” in its supply-line. Of course its no surprise that Apple totally ignores all these “news” reports and rumors.

📲 Other than leaked supply-line secrets, punishable by termination and prosecution by Apple, everything displayed and discussed is conjecture. However, since there are such a vast number of enterprises, engineers, and factory workers involved with the fabrication and assembly of the new iPhone models, whispers arriving from several directions that have a common-thread, could lead an observer to deductions as assembled in this article.

📲 iPhone 6 Release Date: Until Announced, Apple is silent. However, its hard to keep this date a secret with over 400 retail stores. These stores are beginning to “Black-Out” vacation days in September, generally a good sign that Apple requires “all hands on deck” for a new Apple product release. In the next few weeks, these retail store employee black-out dates will be fine-tuned.

📲 iPhone Air, according to new reports the 5.5″ iPhone may have a screen resolution of 1,704-by-960 pixels, a marked improvement over the current 4″ display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c.

📲 iPhone Air’s 1,704-by-900 pixel resolution is essentially a tripled of the “base display resolution” of 568-by-320 pixels. Before the iPhone 5, the iPhone 4 introduced the “Retina Display” representing a resolution of 960-by-640 pixels, which itself is a pixel-doubled 480-by-320 resolution found on the non-Retina 3.5″ original iPhone and the iPhone 3G/3Gs.

📲 Industry experts and analysts are anticipating huge release results, now that Apple is finally delivering LARGER display iPhones. Accordingly the prognosticators are also predicting an large influx of Android users that have been waiting to join the Apple EcoSystem, now that the display size issue is being resolved.

📲 Apple’s Retina Display: Apple’s retina display signifies a range of resolutions depending on the distance from ones Eyes the display is viewed. The human Eye is an organic camera system contain an auto-focus lens which focuses the subject light onto a dense-quilt of photo-sensitive living biological “Cone & Rod” cells. This organic array of specialized living cells, “attached” to the back-wall of the interior of one’s Eye is called the Retina.

📲 Ophthalmologists, have determined if one is reading a book, picture, iPad, iPhone about 14″ away from your Eyes, and if the content of the book’s font characters or pictures are comprised of picture-elements, pixels, the human Eye is not capable if distinguishing individual pixels from each other, if they are packed at a density of 300 pixels per inch, 300 ppi. Recall that 300 ppi means that there are 90,000 pixels within each square inch. The current 4″ diagonal display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c has a pixel density of 326 ppi.

📲 I’m a Believer – Apple is reported to have placed their iPhone 6 order for 90 million units! Looks like FOXCON is going to be very, very busy this year. Recall there are over 475,000,000 iPhones in circulation – there will be a huge number of UpGrades this year, plus a Large number of Migrations from Android to iPhone 6.

📲 Q1, 2014 Apple sold just under 50 million iPhones, therefore ordering 90 million units is giving Apple just a head-start for a what the industry and Apple believes will be a huge iphone 6 launch. In looking at the schematics and the prototypes constructed, Personally, I’m upgrading to the iPhone Air.

📲 The iPhone with its Apps transform the smartphone into a valued business tool, scanner, portable fax, communications device, eMail, Text messaging, and of course a Phone. It will be interesting if Logitech develops one of their UltraThin Keyboard Covers for the iPhone Air, as we both have the Logitech keyboard covers for our iPad minis.

ğŸŽ Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, He is in it, to Win It, Period! This intensity and commitment is terrific for Apple product users, as we are all going to receive better products, and great for Apple’s share holders.

ğŸŽ Speaking of Apple Shareholders. At Apple’s recent quarterly Conference Call, Tim Cook announced that it had a record profit Quarter, the company will be forward splitting its sharers 7-for-1, meaning if you presently own 100 AAPL shares, June 9th Apple will be sending you another 600 shares. This brings the present (6/4/2014) share-price of $644/share for example, to about $92/share, making its shares more “affordable” to an expanded audience of smaller investors.

ğŸŽ Take a look at the Graphic of iPhone Sales. Lets focus on the period of Q1+Q2, 2010 to Q1+Q2, 2014, in this 4 year period iPhone sales grew from 16 million iPhones in 6 months to over 100 million in 6 months. Look at the Slope of the Green trend-line.

ğŸŽ The Line is pointed UP, significantly Up. It does not take a PhD in mathematics and statistics to “extrapolate” what the future quarters may look like, if the the past trends have any possible “predictability” for what Apple’s iPhone future sales may be. No one knows for sure, but my Guess is Apple’s iPhone sales will continue to increase. Likely because Apple continues to reinvent the SmartPhone with innovations that people want.

ğŸŽ Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says, Apple is planning to debut two new iPhone models with two distinct screen sizes in 2014, an unprecedented move for Apple that traditionally has shied away from screen size wars. However a very large survey of iPhone owners, over 60% of their installed-base desires larger display sizes. The graphic of an iPhone may depict the ICON Layout for the new iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ Aside from obvious size differences, the top-of-the-line 5.5″ model will sport a high-resolution display of 1,920-by-1,080 pixels, which represents the same resolution as your large Flat-screen HDTV, translates to 401 pixels per inch, (ppi) in the palm of your hand. The 4.7″ iteration will use a 1,334-by-750 pixel-display to maintain scalability with existing iPhone Apps, representing a pixel density of 326 ppi, meeting or exceeding the “Retina” resolution, Apple set several years ago.

ğŸŽ Both handsets will use Apple’s next-generation A8 system-on-chip with 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM, low temperature polysilicon in-cell touch panels and Touch ID fingerprint security.

ğŸŽ Importantly, a near-field communications chip-set (NFC) and a metal casing are also part of the build. An 10-megapixel rear-facing camera with a f/2.0 aperture is expected, though Apple may improve the camera system to include an improved electronic or optical image stabilization to improve low-light performance, an exciting feature new to the smart-phones, taking the “camera shake” for low light “party” photography.

ğŸŽ As to aesthetics, the iPhones’ bezels are said to be 10% to 20% narrower than the current iPhone 5s, while thinness is pegged at 7.0 millimeters. Kuo also says Apple will move the location of the Top of the iPhone’s sleep/wake button to the right-side of the iPhone, to facilitate one-handed operation. This button-relocation may indicate a new feature that requires frequent pressing of the power button for other functions. Good we could actually need one more button, to eliminate too many soft-menus on the display.

ğŸŽ While the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be within Apple’s guidelines of one-handed operation, Kuo believes Apple may position from a product line-up perspective the 5.5″ version as a higher-end iPhone Air (Phablet) perhaps with an additional $100 premium. I’ll go for it.

ğŸŽ Kuo also believes the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be Apple’s main driver of handset sales in late 2014 and full-year shipments could exceed 60 million units. My guess it will be double or triple this estimate.

ğŸŽ The 5.5″ iPhone Air model may cannibalize some of the sales of the iPad mini, but if the company can marginally reduce the price-tag of its iPad mini, its iPad line-up should remain strong.

ğŸŽ IMHO, its better to cannibalize the iPad mini to yourself, than to be cannibalized by the Competitors, by not having the 5.5″ iPhone Phablet, as has happened over the last 18 months. This is probable the only “mistake” IMHO, Apple has encountered recently. However, who am I to say that Apple made a “misstep” when Apple is delivering 200 million iPhones/year currently. But, what’s not to like with another 30 million units sold.

ğŸŽ We may likely see a terrific migration from Android ➡️ Apple this year and next, perhaps at a rate of a 35% shift ➡️ Apple, with these two larger display choices in Apple’s iPhone line-up. Presently, Android users are migrating ➡️ Apple’s way at a rate of over 20% or more.

ğŸŽ Kuo expects both iPhone 6 models to hit store shelves in the 3rd Quarter of 2014, with Apple keeping the iPhone 5s and 5c on board as mid-tier and low-tier offerings. Due to the expanded handset lineup, the iPhone 4S and 4 will reach end-of-life in 2014.

ğŸŽ Details on Apple’s plans for the 2014 iPhone lineup were published on Tuesday by Japanese blog Macotakara. Citing a trusted source, “Apple has designed two larger iPhone models, sporting 4.7″ and 5.5″ displays, which are final candidates for launch in 2014.”

ğŸŽ Apple’s New iPhone 6 is without a doubt one of the most hotly anticipated smartphone launches of 2014. A dozen or so independent reports suggest that the handset will feature a new larger 4.7″ display and a fresh new design that is thinner than ever. The iPhone 6 is also expected to be accompanied by a new iPhone phablet that will include a 5.5″ screen to help attract new business over from the Android camp.

ğŸŽ Another day, another set of iPhone 6 rumors trickles out from the East Asia. According to the latest report, Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 is ready to enter its mass production phase in May, 2014, with 90 Million Units ordered. The timing would align perfectly with a launch in the 3rd Quarter of 2014. This timing is as expected by most of the other industry watchers. Interestingly, this new report suggests that Apple’s second new iPhone for 2014, the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ Display may be in mass-production until later in the 3rd quarter, 2014 which obviously suggests that it won’t debut until sometime later in 2014.

ğŸŽ We encourage Apple to release both iPhone 6 Models, the 4.75″ and the 5.5″ displays simultaneously. There is such a huge expectation that Apple will be coming out with a “Phablet” (a term Apple despises). If Apple delays the iPhone Air, it may significantly erode the launch of iPhone 6, folks waiting to see both devices, so to choose between the two. Personally, I would wait, and would recommend to my friends, to delay updating until both are announced and visualized. It would be better to delay the iPhone 6, so that it is released with the iPhone Air, than to bifurcate Apple’s iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ According to a report relayed by EMSOne, Taiwan-based Industrial and Commercial Times claims that Apple’s manufacturing partners will begin mass-producing the new iPhone 6 in July. With three months of lead time, that certainly could align well with a late September launch that keeps Apple’s fall iPhone launch pattern alive.

ğŸŽ Interestingly, however, the report claims that Apple’s larger iPhone Phablet may not enter mass-production until sometime in September. If accurate, the device may not debut alongside the iPhone 6, but instead perhaps in later 2014 or early 2015. Remember all these remarks are rumors and “deductions” from supply-line insiders.

ğŸŽ Despite the potential late-start for Apple’s iPhone Phablet production, Industrial and Commercial Times claims that both new iPhones will launch sometime in the fourth quarter this year.

ğŸŽ Apple’s new iPhone 6 is expected to feature an entirely new design with a 4.7″ display, a thinner housing and an upgraded processor. The iPhone phablet is expected to sport a similar design with a larger 5.5″ screen.

ğŸŽ If the reports we have been reading, even come close to representing the handsets Apple actually launches in the 3rd quarter of 2014, we may expect APPLE to crush the sales records the Company set in the fall of 2013, when the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C debuted together, Apple’s first announcement of 2-model on the same Day.

ğŸŽ Recall Apple sold 9 Million iPhones on the opening weekend, 50% greater sales than its previous release weekend of 6 million units. Remember about 55% of All American smartphone users are carrying Apple iPhones.

ğŸŽ Total iPhone sales since its beginning in July, 2007 is presently in excess of 475,000,000 units, Add to this 175,000,000 iPads, the total Apple iOS devices in use equates to roughly 650,000,000. Extend this figure to year end, 12/31/2014, Apple could be sitting with 800,000,000 iPhones and iPads in circulation.. sometime in 2015 Apple may be crossing this 1,000,000,000 threshold (yes that’s One-Billion) globally.

ğŸŽ IMHO, this is exactly what the iPhone Market needs, two serious screen sizes to choose between. The choice of either the 4.7″ display or the 5.5″ display will be perfect Selections to choose from, and will certainly silence the Apple critics for not having a choice of displays. Assuming Apple retains the current Model iPhone 5S, with the New Models, The iphone 6 with its 4.7″ display and the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ display.

Apple offering Four iPhones Models, covering a variety of Display Sizes

ğŸŽ iPhone 4S… 3.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… 99¢
ğŸŽ iPhone 5S… 4.0″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $99
ğŸŽ iPhone 6….. 4.7″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $199
ğŸŽ iPhone Air… 5.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $299

ğŸŽ Lets assume for the moment that Macotakara Publication is accurate regarding the two new display sizes. Lets further assume that Jimmy’s subsidized price “quesstimates” will range from 99¢ for the 3.5″ iPhone 4S to $299 for the 5.5″ iPhone Air, as shown above.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 Rumor Round-Up ⬆️ A Really Big Launch in 2014 ⬆️ Initial Supply Order 90 Million Units ⬆️ 2 Display Sizes ⬆️ 4.7″ & 5.5″ Displays ⬆️ 5G WiFi Connectivity ⬆️ 3 New Sensors: Humidity-Temperature-Atmospheric-Pressure ⬆️ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed

ğŸŽ The Graphic Above: Based upon leaked schematics (blue-line graphic below) discovered by Macotakara of the forthcoming 4.7″ and 5.5″ variants of the iPhone 6, Nowherelse teamed up with concept designer extraordinaire Martin Hajek to create what may be the most plausible look (graphic above) at what Jony Ive’s next iPhone design would look like yet,” John Brownlee reports for Cult of Mac.

ğŸŽ “All the proportions here are perfect: although it features a larger profile, a super thin design, and an edge-to-edge display, the design still features a beautiful internal symmetry that seems worthy of Apple,” Brownlee writes. “There are some changes: the edges are curved, more organic, and the volume buttons have been unified into a single rocker, but otherwise, it looks like an evolution of the current iPhone 5s. Which is exactly what the iPhone 6 would look like.” The Graphic below is the “leaked schematic blue-print.”

ğŸŽ The BIG Question is: Will iPhone Up-Graders pay-up $299 for the base model of the 5.5″ iPhone Air; Plus paying an added $100 for each step for 32GB, 64GB, 128GB Memory upgrades.

ğŸŽ What’s Jimmy Think: From my perspective, and knowing how valuable my iPhone is as a communications device, and the added utility of the iPhone, as a business tool, thanks to the 100+ amazing Apps that I use frequently, I may be “pleased” to pay $500, subsidized, for the 5.5″ iPhone Air with 64GB of storage. (The iPhone Air name is also an assumption).

ğŸŽ Lets look at “JimW’s iPhone 5S” Usage, I have about 22.9 GB remaining of the 64GB iPhone. It could be assumed with the iPhone Air’s larger screen, it may double as “my miniature iPad mini” perhaps needing to step-up the onboard storage to 128GB, matching my iPad mini’s capacity. Unfortunately, one cannot upgrade later, so this is “a one-time decision” of paying-up that extra $100 for Twice the storage, going from 64GB to 128GB, assuming this choice is available. Since I have 128GB on my iPad-Mini-Retina, I’d likely keep the storage on both devices uniform.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 should be a Really Big Launch in 2014 with Two Display Sizes, this quinella of iPhones will be Longer and Wider, Diagonal Measure: 4.7″ and 5.5″ Display Sizes ~ 5G WiFi Connectivity ~ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed ~ Three New Sensors measuring ambient Temperature, Humidity and Atmospheric Pressure.

ğŸŽ iPhone reports have it, that the 2 New iPhones may have internal components to measure Temperature, Atmospheric Pressure and Humidity sensors. It will be interesting how Apple’s engineers “shields” these three sensors from the internal ambient-effects of the warm electronics and that of the liON Polymer battery, as the iPhone’s circuitry operates and the battery discharges, which tend to become warm…

ğŸŽ iPhone Release Schedules. Historically, Apple released its original iPhone in June, 2007 with over a million units sold in its opening weekend. The next iPhone iteration, the iPhone 3G was released in July, 2008. (Notice that we’re focusing your attention to the “Major” releases, not the interim “S” releases).

ğŸŽ The next major iPhone release was June, 2010, with its iPhone 4, the date and model Marilyn and I bought our first iPhones. Subsequently, the iPhone 5 was released in September, 2012 with 6 million units sold in its opening weekend. The “September” release month was somewhat “off schedule” from the other June timings. This 90 delay delay, may have occurred due to some quality-control and/or supply-line issues, pushing back the release a few months; Total guesswork on my part.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is upon us reportedly, and interested folks are wondering when will the iPhone 6 be Announced and Released. My guess, Apple may return to the June, 2014 timing schedule, so that Apple has more time for the Sales of this likely “Block Buster” release with its reported larger 4.7″ brilliant display.

ğŸŽ I’ve predicted that Apple may have a 12 million iPhone weekend, with iPhone 6 new Two-Sizes Release. Also reported, Apple placed its initial order for the iPhone 6, ordered 90 million units from their experienced Apple supplier, Foxconn. Now That’s Confidence.

ğŸŽ The secondary questions, will Apple release Two Phones, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone Air on the same Day, similar to the release of iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C in September, 2013.

ğŸŽ These new models are reportedly expected to have similar button shapes for volume and mute as the iPhone 5c, as well as the same rounded back edges. In addition, it was said that the holes on the bottom of the handset for speaker and microphone will also follow the design established by the iPhone 5C.

ğŸŽ In looking at the leaked blue-prints, for the iPhone 6, the rounded edges give an appearance of the iPad mini, but thinner, without the angled-edges of the present iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ The larger 5.5″ model is said to be 7.5 millimeters thick, which would be the same as the iPad Air. This thinness would reportedly may require the rear iSight camera to protrude slightly from the case, much like with the fifth-generation iPod nano. Last year the Apple had to revise its “thinness” from 7.0mm to 7.5mm to avoid the slight protrusion.

ğŸŽ Macotakara, sourced for the story above, has a respectable track record in “predicting” Apple’s future iPhone plans. Last year, Macotakara revealed
(A) the 2013 iPhone lineup would come in a new range of colors, and it was also
(B) the first to claim that the iPhone 5s would feature a dual LED flash for more natural looking photos, and was
(C) the first to state that the new pill-shaped flash module would be accompanied by a
(D) the circular rear-facing microphone located between the flash and the iSight camera lens.

ğŸŽ The anticipated larger iPhone is rumored to be a high-end iPhone 5c, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will continue to have a plastic back, as the iPod nano achieves its colors with anodized aluminum. The new models are apparently a cross between the design of the iPhone 5c and the seventh-generation iPod nano. According to the source, the new larger iPhone won’t be a replacement for the existing iPhone 5c, but will be akin to a higher-end model.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is going be a really Big launch this year. Apple will finally offer, its reported, a bigger display to compete with the likes of the Galaxy S5 and other flagship Android phones and phablets.

ğŸŽ It’s not that Apple’s iPhone underperforms in any measure, its strictly that 69% of Existing iPhone Users desire a Larger Display, self included. In anticipation of this huge anticipated demand, Apple has reportedly ordered 90 million iPhone 6 units from Foxconn.

ğŸŽ News is picking up momentum and spreading like a viral disease, as a new report indicates that the iPhone 5C’s sales failure could move-up the Release Date of the iPhone 6, to a date earlier in 2014, than initially anticipated. Of course, only Apple knows, everyone else is guessing, and extrapolating.

ğŸŽ One thing for sure, Apple will release the iPhone 6, when its ready for a huge release. Since Apple’s release of the 5S and 5C simultaneously with a 9 Million release-weekend, Apple will surely be capable of having 15 Million of the iPhone 6 models available for its opening Weekend.

ğŸŽ According to the Australian rendition of the International Business Times, there’s a brand new report that has come fast and furious out of DigiTimes, indicating that there are more than a million iPhone 5C handsets sitting on retail and ISP’s shelves the around the world world, where Apple is having trouble designing a plan to move these units economically for the delivery source and Apple’s balance sheet.

ğŸŽ As noted by IBT… “Some consumers believed iPhone 5C failed to prove that it is a cheap iOS device. But the tables could turn when carriers and retailers drop the existing prices to clear the remaining inventory once the iPhone 6 will be released.”

ğŸŽ The 5C issue (this is a media-invented issue) could spell big trouble for Apple if the iPhone 5C proves to be a hamper in their profit-stride and the “Wall Street Expectations game.” One Duck writes an absurd story and the rest of the Quacks repeat it. (Take a look at an Article I’ve written regarding what I believe is an iPhone 5C success story http://tiny.cc/e5jhdx) However, Apple could “make up for the 5C matter” with very strong quarterly sales by the release of an Exciting iPhone 6, particularly if Apple gets to or Close to a 5″ Display combined with the very successful and popular golden iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ iPhone is due to be released later this year. The iPhone 6 seemingly will be packed with amazing features that will make it fly-off the shelves.

ğŸŽ Several innovative features are likely to set-up the iPhone 6 as the new Leader in the smartphones market, significantly outperforming (Galaxy’s S5 a similar dud as was Apple’s 5C) along any other releases from its competitors coming out the next few months.

ğŸŽ Since even Samsung being disappointed with the apparent “flop” of the Galaxy S5, this leaves the “Door Wide Open” for Apple to capture a relatively large number of folks ready to migrate from Android.

ğŸŽ Rumors have it that Apple is going for a wider and bigger display for the new iPhone 6. But that’s not the only thing that’s changing. Apple now has a new patent called ‘Systems and Methods for Preventing Light Guide Plate Scratching Artifacts‘ which leads us to believe that the iPhone 6 display technology will be truly innovative.

ğŸŽ Apple has stated that iPhone 6 will probably have “the most gorgeous display rendering ever in a mobile device.” Not only will it look modern and chic but the screen may come with a neat protection layer.

ğŸŽ It looks like the Retina display panel will be replaced with Quantum Dot technology which will come with sharper, crisper colors and improved brightness renditions.

ğŸŽ Knowing how important battery life is, apparently, iPhone 6 will come equipped with a battery that not only will it last longer and give users longer talk-time, but will also feature a source of energy that will replenish its electrical power very quickly.

ğŸŽ There have also been rumors about wireless charging, no need to elaborate on what a great feature would that be and how iPhone 6 would become the public’s favorite. Wireless Charging typically means that the device (the iPhone) would have a flat-thin-coil inside the rear cover.

ğŸŽ If you placed the iPhone onto a charger-platform, alternating current is electro-magnetically transmitted through the rear cover, “exciting” the internal flat-thin-coil. This energy is then converted into DC, direct current, which is managed and stored into the LiON battery. You may recall the Palm-PRE had this capability a decade ago. The charging platform and the iPhone could have internal ceramic magnets to that the iPhone is held in position on the “charger.”

ğŸŽ Wi-Fi signal improvements with the famous 802.11ac (a/k/a 5G WiFi) offering break-neck speed, and longer connectivity range, is rumored to be featured on the new iPhone 6. If this is true, users will be able to download or stream HD films in a matter of seconds even for very large HDTV video movie files. Gigabit speed equates to roughly 250,000,000 bYtes per second.

ğŸŽ In perspective, a typical 8 mega-pixel camera captures that have a file size of 5 Mega bYtes, thats a 5,000,000 byte file size. An iPhone that can transmit or receive data at Gigabit speeds, means that one could upload (or download) 50 full resolution images in ONE second. One one could download a full-length, 2 hour High Definition Movie in about 15 seconds.

ğŸŽ By design, 802.11ac is intended to operate only in the 5 GHz band. This avoids much of the interference at 2.4 GHz, including Bluetooth headsets, microwave ovens, and provides a strong incentive for users to upgrade their mobile devices to be dual band so that the 5 GHz band is more universally usable. This choice also streamlines the IEEE process by avoiding the possibility of contention between 802.11 and 802.15 proponents.

ğŸŽ Asus RT-AC66U 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless, at $189 these new Routers handle 5G. RT-AC66U offers very fast Wi-Fi on the 5GHz frequency band, both with Wireless-N clients and AC clients. In fact it’s the fastest of the few 802.11ac routers currently available on the market. The router also has very good range and its USB ports provide more than just the support for external storage and printers.

ğŸŽ To put Apple’s reported order in perspective, the Apple sold 51 million iPhones during its fiscal quarter ending Dec. 28th, 2013. Apple is anticipating a very large a leap in sales.

ğŸŽ The iPhone 6 may be fitted with a super-strong Sapphire crystal display, a more advanced camera, lens, image stabilization, an f2.0 aperture, and perhaps wireless charging. In addition, there are rumors that the iPhone 6 will feature a faster new A8 chip with a quad-core CPU and graphics.

ğŸŽ According to a Citigroup Global-Markets analyst, cited by the Commercial Times in China, Apple’s smartphone shipments are expected to rise a whopping 23% in 2014, compared to 13% increase in sales last year.

ğŸŽ IMHO if Apple delivers the iPhone 6 with a Display that contains a meaningful increase to 4.75" or 5.0" Apple iPhone will sell in huge numbers.

ğŸŽ Overall, analysts in IDC predict that smartphone growth will slow somewhat in 2014 to 19.3% growth, down from 39.2% growth factor in 2013.

ğŸŽ The reason: average smartphone prices keep dropping, as demand shifts to China. In other words, the iPhone 6 will likely be a huge seller, helping it stay ahead of the industry average in terms of growth and profitability.

ğŸŽ Note that Galaxy S5 was a big flop, disappointing users, investors, and Samsung, as demand for Samsung’s newest offering was not very exciting. If the iPhone goes to a 5" display its Demand will Explode.

As a "Health Nut" for Health & Wellness; http://www.Jim.Wilson.Isagenix.com

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release April, 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, (I sold my iPad 4 to Gazelle.com) applied the proceeds to purchase the "mini" with 128GB of Storage, AT&T connectivity, plus added Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover, and an ACME MADE San Francisco rubberized thin slip-over protective case. This thin package actually fits into my trousers pocket.

DropBox, a 2GB free file storage and retrieval service (or a 1000GB paid service) that lets you access all your Word Docs, Page Docs, XL Files, Numbers Spreadsheets, PDF files, Photographs, resident on your iPads, iPhones, Mac Books, Androids, Windows PCs, MacBooks, Mac Desktops, and Laptops anywhere 🌐⭐️🌐⭐️🌐⭐️🌐⭐️🌐

🌐 DropBox, a 2GB free file storage and retrieval service (or a 1000GB paid service) that lets you access all your Word Docs, Page Docs, XL Files, Numbers Spreadsheets, PDF files, Photographs, resident on your iPads, iPhones, Mac Books, Androids, Windows PCs, MacBooks, Mac Desktops, and Laptops anywhere.

🌐 With DropBox, any file you save to your Dropbox may be automatically saved and Synchronized to all your computers, mobile devices, and your secure Dropbox FileCabinet (a secure Cloud account). With DropBox you can Sync all your files to all your devices if you desire, or some devices, or one device, or no Syncing.

🌐 Everyone IMHO really should go online and sign up for a DropBox free Cloud-based file cabinet account. Its utility between iPads, iPhones, MACs and PCs is extraordinary. Presently, 2GB of storage is free; upgrade to 1000GB for $99/year. The DropBox account provides access for storage and retreival for any number of iPhones, iPads, PC’s and MAC’s.

🌐 Dropbox also makes it very easy to share any of these files with others, whether you’re a student or professional, parent or grandparent. Even if you accidentally spill a latte on your laptop, have no fear! You can relax knowing that Dropbox always has you files safely stored, and none of your files will ever be lost.

🌐 Dropbox Cloud-based File Storage vs. Apple’s iCloud Back-Up utility in iOS7
⚠️ Apple’s iCloud Backup is very important part of iOS7, the operating system for iPads and iPhones. When performing automatic back-ups, every night automatically as we have our devices perform backups, Apple’s operating system auto-saves all your Files, Apps, Position of the Apps on the Home page, all iDevice settings, ring-tones, start screens, lock-screens, eMail accounts, Calendars, Contacts, Photos, Videos, etc
⚠️ Apple’s comprehensive global-backup is very effective for Copying all the iPhone’s Files and Settings into a New iPhone when upgrading, or into a replacement iPhone, if one’s iDevice was lost, stolen, or damaged beyone repair
⚠️ Apple’s backup however, does Not Permit the user to retrieve, save, view, or access a particular file or image. iCloud backup’s shortcoming is largely with its inability to accessing a particular file or image
⚠️ DropBox solves the Apple iCloud inability to save or retrieve files or images one-by-one. In the future Apple’s iCloud storage capability may permit individual file storage and retreival; however, as of this writing, August 28, 2014, Apple’s operating system iOS7.1.2 does not permit individual file functions.

🌐 Dropbox works hard to make sure that all your files are “the same and in Sync” no matter where you’re working from. This means that you can start working on a Report from computer at school or the office, and finish the Report from your home computer. Which means you’ll never again have to email yourself the unfinished Report. Download the Dropbox App for your phone to simplify your life even more — flip through all your photos or review that spreadsheet even while on the road. Dropbox lets you work from any computer, iPhone, iPad, mobile device, with the confidence that you’ll always have access to every file or image you may need.

🌐 Dropbox makes sharing so easy that you’ll be amazed at the things you can do. Invite your friends, family and teammates to any Folder in your Dropbox; This access is as if you “saved” that Folder straight to their computers or iPad. You can send to people “internet-links,” which gives them direct access to a specific File or Folders in your Dropbox. This makes Dropbox very effective for team projects, sharing party photos with friends, or recording your band’s new album.

🌐 Sending your Recipients “internet-links,” giving them direct, secure access to a specific File or Folders in your Dropbox, has another important advantage. If you desire to have access to a very large file, say over 80MB, this file is too large for an email attachment, as typical limits are 10MB to 25MB.

🌐 With DropBox, anyone you desire, can access this 80MB file with a special Link that you send to your Recipient, where they click onto the link, and the file downloads onto their Device into their resident PDF reader, for example, avoiding email file-size limits and slow-downloads, having to deal with email-server overhead delays.

🌐 Safety. Even if your computer has a meltdown, your stuff is always safe in Dropbox and can be restored in a snap. Dropbox is like a “time-machine” that lets you undo mistakes and even undelete files you accidentally trash. Your Dropbox is always ready for action from the Dropbox website too!

🌐 Whether you are an entrepreneur, a teacher, a photographer, a lawyer, an architect, business person, an astronomer, an artist, or a retiree, Dropbox Simplifies the Security and Sharing of your Files.

🌐 Millions of people around the world use Dropbox to help them design buildings, compose music, run businesses, write books, coordinate disaster relief, or simply to share amazing photos of family and friends.

🌐 As I so most of my work on my trusty iPad mini, DropBox has given us terrific utility in sharing files between our MacBooks, PC’s and other iPads and iPhones. We’ve configured DropBox to Sync everything on my iPad to my PC. Therefore any pictures, edited photos, Pages Docs, Numbers XL files, are automatically synced to these selected devices. Any device that is not in the Sync’ed group may down load any file in DropBox on a one-by-one basis, or by Folder for a group of files. DropBox increasing the Pro account to 1000GB has really solved my issue with hitting storage limits. One TetraByte is quite enough. Thank you DropBox for this upgrade. Here is the Letter recently received from DropBox.

🌐 App Name: Dropbox Simplifies the Security and Sharing of your Files ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐📍

🌐 App Store Priced: $ Free for 2GB of storage, $9.99/month for 1000GB

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L to be Announced on September 9, 2014 @ 1:00PM Eastern ~ www.Gazelle.com will Buy your iPhone, or Android. Gazelle will Pay you Quick to your Bank account, your PayPal account, or Mail a Check… you decide ğŸŽğŸ’°ğŸŽğŸ’°ğŸŽğŸ’°ğŸŽğŸ’°

1409254564.jpg

🌐 iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L to be Announced on September 9, 2014 @ 1:00PM Eastern time.

🌐 http://www.Gazelle.com will Buy your iPhone, or Android. Gazelle will Pay you Quick to your Bank account, your PayPal account, or Mail a Check… you decide.

🌐 My personal experience with Gazelle: from the date that you package your SmartPhone to Gazelle and hand it to the FedEX Agent, to the date that you are actually paid… it takes about 9 calendar days. Several years ago the Pay-Time credit occurred in about 11 calendar Days. A recent Gazelle.com transaction in May, 2013 took only 9 calendar days to fund. Gazelle has apparently optimized their procedures. Below is a current graphic as of 8/28/2013 of the various entities that will either give Money or Gift Cards for your iPhones.

🌐 We have used Gazelle for since 2010, where they’ve bought 6 iPhones and 4 iPads over the three years, paid exactly as agreed, and they pay for the shipping. What to do with your present iPhone, don’t give it to your Carrier for a $50 credit, sell it to Gazelle for about $200-$345 in quick cash, depending on Condition and the Model you are selling.

🌐 Below is displayed a graph showing the effects of time when you obtain an Offer from Gazelle, pre-Announcement to post-Announcement of the Apple Media Event this year to be held on Tuesday 9/9/2014. In sum, the earlier you to on line to Gazelle to obtain their Offer to Buy your iPhone the higher the price you will receive.

🌐 This year, Gazelle is presently giving a 53 Day Fixed Price commitments, thereafter their offer expires. I went online TODAY to Gazelle and obtained two Offers, one for Marilyn’s AT&T iPhone 5 with 32GB, flawless, and my iPhone 5S 64GB Flawless; both of our AT&T iPhones will be Unlocked before I ship to Gazelle which gives us a higher price for each iPhone.

🌐 Gazelle.com Last Year’s results: iPhone 5S Upgrade for $2 ~ Do it With a Gazelle.com Commitment for your Old iPhone. In the examples shown are for a 2 year old iPhone 4S with 16GB memory the AT&T version in Good Condition, you’d receive $215. If you get the New iPhone 5S, the price would be $199 plus $18 AT&T administrative charge for the New Contract, Your NET cost is $2. What a Deal, with Gazelle. This is why Marilyn and I have upgraded 10 devices with Gazelle over the past 3 years…

🌐 IMHO, unless the Apple Trade-In program gives a trade-in price to within say $25 of Gazelle’s Commitment, I’m selling to Gazelle, as it is 9-days quick and very easy. However, for my present 64GB iPhone 5 in “Perfect” condition, Gazelle has Committed to buy it for $350. If Apple offers $325 or more, I will take the Apple Store trade-in, as it would be a NOW all-in-one-and-done solution, assuming it is not a Gift Card to be mailed.

🌐 My guess, the Apple Store trade-in may be under $300. Since Gazelle has committed $350 for my 64GB iPhone 5, I’d take the Gazelle sale, as $50 or more, is too much of a difference, therefore I will wait the 9-days for the Gazelle money to appear in my PayPal account. If the value is in the “gray zone” of say $20 to $25, it may be worthwhile, to choose the In-Store trade-in, and retain the iPhone charger as a spare for your office or kitchen. If the Apple Store trade-in program, is paid by an Apple Store Gift Card, OK, as this money may be used to off-set the New iPhone transaction.

🌐 Whether “selling” your iPhone to Gazelle.com or the Apple Store trade-in for the upgrade, remember to bring the iPhone Box for your Old iPhone, the Old iPhone charger and USB-cable, the Old ear-buds. The Apple Store trade-in program is new, therefore I do not know whether the packaging and other components are required for the maximum trade-in value. For the Gazelle Commitment, they require the entire iPhone package with accessories.

🌐 Gazelle is providing their 6 week plus a $10 Bonus plan has starting, as APPLE’s September 19th release Day is Friday.

🌐 For those who will exchange Simplicity for getting Top Dollar for their used iPhone, some Carriers and Apple Retail Stores are formulating trade-in programs, serving as a relatively painless option, if the price is right. Simply hand-over your working iPhone when purchasing a new iPhone and you should receive an “instant discount” on your new iPhone purchase. If the payment to you is in the form of a Gift Card… use the Gazelle.com route.

🌐 According to a recent report from Bloomberg, Apple was formulating a similar program in partnership with Brightstar that would allow customers to trade-in their old Apple iPhone for a credit toward a new iPhone.

🌐 iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C were Announced on September 10th, with the Product-Launch Friday, September 20th, for a huge three-day Weekend Selling Extravaganza, 9to5 MAC Reports that Apple is getting ready to launch the new trade-in program concurrently with the new iPhone 5S release celebration. The report claims Apple has commenced training its retail staff this week in preparation for the new program’s debut.

🌐 First Things First: How Many Gigabytes (GB) does my iPhone have? Most folks either forgot or chose a value that the Apple person recommended, that being several years ago, many folks may not remember. Here is a simple method to determine which model you have.
1⃣ Go to your iPhone’s Settings Icon, the gray icon with a “Gears” graphic.
2⃣ Select again the gray icon with the “Gears” graphic, about the 9th item on the menu-list.
3⃣ Select the “About” menu-item.
4⃣ Examine the items on this page. This list shows how Many Applications you have on this device, in my case 342 Apps, 4,310 Photos, and many other device facts…
5⃣ Capacity is the menu-item we are looking for, in my case it shows 57.1 GB, which means that MY device is a 64GB device, (about 5GB to 7GB is reserved for the iOS software overhead)
6⃣ One of these device Memory configurations: 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB,
7⃣ Your device will show a value about 5GB to 7GB less than the 4 choices in #6⃣, as of this writing.

🌐 What do you Think… Be Free to Comment Below…

🌐 Gazelle.com is not like an eBay Auction, where bidders come to look at your item and bid or not bid, and hopefully you actually Receive the “fair price” you were counting on.

🌐 Gazelle.com In the examples I chose on Gazelle the model iPhone 5 that we own which gave us a $350 price for iPhone 5S. Also displayed is for the 2-year old iPhone 4S with 16GB of memory with AT&T and VERIZON models. Notice the 2-year old iPhone 4S with AT&T, which has the SIM card, which makes it a “World GSM” device, is priced today (8/26/2013) at $215. For the Verizon Model with the same 16GB memory spec, Gazelle will pay $175, which is $40 lower. The reason for the lower valuation is simple, Verizon and Sprint iPhones contain CDMA cellular transceivers, which is common in the USA but not Worldwide, therefore Gazelle’s resale market is limited to the USA primarily.

🌐 The GSM Association is an international organization founded in 1987, dedicated to providing, developing, and overseeing the worldwide wireless standard of GSM. CDMA is a proprietary standard designed by Qualcomm in the United States, and used to be the dominant network standard for North America and parts of Asia. However, GSM networks currently are wide-spread in the United States and Worldwide. CDMA networks make some limited progress in other parts of the world.

🌐 In the cellular service industry, there are two main competing network technologies: Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA). Cellular carriers including AT&T, Sprint PCS, Cingular Wireless, Verizon, and T-Mobile use either GSM or CDMA. Understanding the difference between GSM and CDMA will allow you to choose a carrier that uses the preferable network technology for your needs. If your iPhone has a “SIM Card” Slot, then your iPhone is a GSM device. No SIM Card drawer, your iPhone is a CDMA cellular device.

🌐 Both Networks are comparable with regard to upload and download speeds, and coverage area. However there in certain smaller populated markets, coverage may be an issue to consider. There are TWO primary advantages to GSM iPhones.

🌐 Firstly, GSM phones are global devices. This means if you were going to Canada, Mexico, Europe, or Asia, you could obtain a SIM card in that country, to greatly reduce your iPhone usage while vacationing or business use. CDMA iPhones will not function in Canada, Mexico, Europe, or Asia.

🌐 Secondly, GSM iPhones are capable of performing several Functions at the Same Time. For example, if you were on a cell call with a GSM iPhone, and you needed to look something up on the Internet, you could switch to Safari, look up the info, while you are on the cellular call. These Dual Transmitting-Receiving operations are not possible with CDMA.

🌐 Gazelle.com is very easy to use. You go on-line select the menu items at the top-left of their opening screen, once you’ve identified YOUR iPhone, its memory size, and your Carrier, then a panel opens with Three Simple Condition Choices: BROKEN, GOOD, PERFECT. Gazelle defines these conditions in every day language, so you don’t need a law degree to make the selection. With each selection a Price is displayed in the Offer Box. If you agree with this offer, you may then establish an “Account” identifying yourself, how you desire to be paid, address, email address, etc.

🌐 Gazelle.com establishes a unique reusable account, you have a Confirmed Offer, subject to their examination and acceptance of your iPhone and its stated condition. The Offer is Effective for a Limited Time, like 30 days; however, Gazelle last year extended their Committed Offer to 45 to 60 days to encourage more Sellers to register their iPhones. BTW the 30 day Commitment is determined by the Date of the Offer and Day that UPS scans-receives your item for delivery to Gazelle. If you miss the date, the Commitment is Terminated, no exceptions, as the pricing of their offers, generally Decreases with Time.

🌐 Timing Strategy. Lets assume you believe that the iPhone 5S may be deliverable to your Front Door by an on-line pre-order, or you buy at the Apple Store on Friday, September 27th. Total Guess as no one knows. To make sure you time this to your advantage, get your offer from Gazelle, which starts the 30-Day-Meter, on Monday September 9th. This gives you until October 8th to have your UPS Gazelle carton scanned by the UPS Agent for your iPhone 5. This gives you a one Week cushion, in the event the iPhone 5S is released a week later say, on October 4th.

🌐 More Strategy. In the event Apple dons not release the iPhone 5S within the window of time set by Gazelle’s Offer deadline, simply do not send the iPhone 5 to Gazelle, as there is no penalty for your failing to deliver, or just cancel their Offer. Repeat the Timing Strategy above every three weeks, so that you always have a Live Unexpired 30-day Offer in place, awaiting your deliver your New iPhone 5S.

🌐 Gazelle.com Android Smart Phones. Gazelle does provide price commitments for Android devices too, such as the Galaxy S3 and S4, however they are priced significantly lower than similar iPhone models and age. The Galaxy S4 their most current model in Good Condition is priced at $210, for the Galaxy S3 priced at $145. Apparently global demand is significantly lower for Good Condition used Samsung smart phones.

🌐 iPhones Get 50% High Commitments from Gazelle.com as compared to similar Samsung models.

🌐 The PLAN is for YOU to have TWO iPhones at the same time for 5 to 10 days. This gives you time to make sure everything is working on the New iPhone 5S before you give up to Gazelle your iPhone 5. Also if you misplaced the ear-buds, you can take the new ear-buds from the 5S box, and place it in the iPhone 5 carton to send to Gazelle. Generally, to make sure I get the "Perfect" rating on the iPhone, I take the Charger, the Charging Wire, and the Ear-Buds, all other Packaging Materials from the NEW iPhone Box, and placing same into the OLD iPhone Box, along with the OLD iPhone.

🌐 Before You Ship to Gazelle. Follow Gazelle’s Procedures and Packaging Instructions to the letter.

🌐 Preparation of the OLD and NEW iPhones. The 8⃣ steps below explain what you should to with your OLD iPhone in preparation of its sending to Gazelle. In sum, we are making sure your iPhone information and settings are up to date, then restoring this information from the CLOUD into the NEW iPhone, removing the SIM card from your AT&T iPhone (there is no SIM card in Verizon or Sprint iPhones)
1⃣ Back Up your existing iPhone to the CLOUD now, to assure that all your iPhone content will be brought into your New iPhone. When you power-up the New iPhone for the first time, the menues will ask you if you want to
2⃣ AT&T iPhones where there is a SIM Card, open the miniature SIM Card Tray on the right side of the iPhone, remove the SIM Card, and place this Simcard into Your New iPhone. There will be a SIM Card in the New iPhone, so you are swapping SIM Cards
3⃣ AT&T iPhones where there is a SIM Card, open the miniature SIM Card Tray on the right side of the iPhone, remove the SIM Card, and place this Simcard into Your New iPhone. There will be a SIM Card in the New iPhone, so you are swapping SIM Cards
4⃣ Restore your New iPhone from your CLOUD, select Yes, and everything, calendars, address book, photos, email accounts, all yur Apps and the location of the Apps, ring-tones, background wallpapers, ect… will be brough into your new iPhone
5⃣ Make sure everything is AOK, With the new iPhone On and Operating, make a few calls, make sure everyting is working OK. You will have to Enter your email passwords, as the restore process does not save nor bring over your passwords. The restore may take 30 minutes. Be in a WiFi area and Do Not Interrupt the Restore Process
6⃣ Everyting is OK on the New iPhone, put it aside, you tested it, and its Good to Use.
7⃣ Caution. Be sure everything is operating OK on the NEW iPhone, before Resetting the OLD iPhone. For example, if the New iPhone was defective, you could receive an immediate replacement, and Restore this 2nd New iPhone 5S with your OLD iPhone
8⃣ Reset the OLD iPhone, make sure the SIM Card was removed, (step 3⃣). Turn on the OLD iPhone; go to the Settings App, this is a Gray Icon decorated with Gray Gears. Select: General. Select: Reset, Select: “Erase All Content and Settings.” When making this selection it will give you two “Are You Sure” opportunities to abort this Total Reset. This Reset process is Not Reversable.

🌐 Ship your OLD iPhone to Gazelle. You are now ready to package the old iPhone, however, setp-by-step Follow Gazelle’s Procedures to the letter, which includes placing a copy of the Gazelle paperword into the shipping box. From the date you deliver the Box to UPS, (Get a Paper Receipt from the UPS Agent, so you can prove you shipped it, and within 30 days) you should be paid within about 9 calendar days, that’s my experience.

🌐 Consider this. Traditionally, with an AT&T subsidy for example… You arrive at the AT&T store and want a new iPhone 5S; You sign a new 2-Year Contract, and Pay $200 to AT&T. Since the iPhone 5S costs $600 priced by Apple, when you buy the iPhone 5S, AT&T sends to Apple your $200+$400 from AT&T’s account.

🌐 Credit Check by the Carrier. There are two reasons that AT&T considers your credit-rating, the carrier is looking for payment history giving then assurance that you will pay your monthly cellular bill, and the carrier is advancing in your behalf a $400 subsidy it pays Apple. Recall you are paying $200 for a $600 iPhone, AT&T is paying $400 in our behalf, and “trusts” that you will honor your 2-year services contract.

🌐 Over the two years of the services contract the $400 that AT&T paid in your behalf, this subsidy is costing you in effect $400/24 which accounts for $16.70/month, although this $16.70/month is built into your cellular services package; this amount not assessed to you as an add-on installment for the hardware. At the end of your 2-year contract period, the iPhone-5 is essectially “paid in full” and is yours with no other payments for the iPhone.

🌐 Consider this too. Lets assume that I desire the new iPhone 5S in September. AT&T tells me that there is a $250 Early Termination Fee in 2013, because the termination is 12 months early, when I acquired the iPhone 5 in 2012. So for me to take on the new iPhone 5S, I have to pay the termination fee of $250 plus pay $200 for the new iPhone 5S assuming you do not choose a $100 memory upgrade (AT&T subsidized). As a result I would have to pay AT&T $250+$200=$450, and I would have signed a new 2-year commitment to AT&T and, have the “free and clear” iPhone 5. The early Termination Fee is actually reimbursing AT&T for the unpaid balance of the $400 they paid for my iPhone 5 plus a little extra.

🌐 Gazelle Comes to the Rescue. Go on-line to http://www.Gazelle.com and get an offer from Gazelle. Today I logged onto Gazelle’s site for this Article; their current Offer to Buy my iPhone 5 is $350 in “Perfect” condition, which means no scratches flawless iPhone 5 + I retained the original Box all the packaging materials, Charger, Wire and Ear Buds. We always have our iPhones in cases, so there no signs of typical use. If there were some scratches, all the buttons are in place, no cracks or broken display glass, the Gazelle offering price is classified as ‘Good” $320. We have sold 10 Apple devices to Gazelle for years, recycling 6 iPhones and 4 iPads. Gazelle’s system is honest, their pricing includes UPS shipping to Gazelle. They Paid directly into our PayPal account in about 9 days from the Date I handed the Box to the UPS Agent (get a paper receipt from the UPS agent).

🌐 Consider This. If you don’t mind dealing with Gazelle, which is actually effortless, and assuming the AT&T Early Termination Fee is $250 this year, and the new iPhone 5S costs me $200, then I’m in the deal for $450. However, Gazelle is sending me $350, therefore the exchange for the new iPhone 5S will cost out of pocket ($450-$350) a net of about $100.

🌐 One More Thing. If you desire to reCycle your iPhone every 2 years, for example you have the iPhone 4S, and its now about two years later. There would be no Early Termination fee. Gazelle will pay you $215 for a normal wear iPhone 4S. AT&T with their traditional 2 year Contracts calls for your to pay $200 for the New iPhone 5S; However, Gazelle is paying you $215, therefore there is no cost to you to upgrade to the iPhone 5S with 2-year cycles.

🌐 If you are an AT&T subscriber, chances are you have a plan in which you sign up for a 2-year contract, and you are Committed to your iPhone for 2 years. AT&T is changing things up for those that want the “Latest and Greatest” every time iPhone releases a new iteration.

🌐 AT&T is offering a New Annual iPhone Upgrade Plan that gives you Yearly Upgrades. However, the first iPhone is not subsidized. First, this is how the AT&T subsidy works. You arrive at the AT&T store and want a new iPhone 5; You have sign a new 2-Year Contract, and Pay $200 to AT&T. Since the iPhone 5 costs $600 from Apple, AT&T actually sends to Apple your $200+$400 from AT&T’s account.

🌐 Alternatively, the AT&T New Upgrade Plan. The New Upgrade Plan, you pay full price, $600, for your new iPhone in Cash on Day one, with 2-year Contract. For instance, say you buy an iPhone 5, and you choose to pay the $600. However, you may chose to make payments to AT&T for the new iPhone with $30/month installments, instead of $600 on day one, which is added to your standard cell-phone monthly bill. Lets pretend this plan started for you in September, 2012 when you acquired the iPhone 5, using AT&T’s Installment Payment plan of $30/month. In 12 months you’re into the iPhone 5 for 360.

🌐 Its September, 2013 and the iPhone 5S may be released. This new AT&T Plan permits you to trade in your iPhone 5, after only one-year has passed, and paying $360 in installments. No Problem you get the new iPhone 5S. However, your $30/month installment plan that you’ve paid Twelve $30 payments, refreshes to a new 2-year installment arrangement. However, you got a new iPhone 5S.

Apple iPad-Pro ~ a 12.9″ iPad is VERY Ready for Prime Time Challenging the 13″ to 15″ PC, LapTop and the Education MarketğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

1409238601.jpg

ğŸŽ Apple iPad-Pro ~ a 12.9″ iPad is VERY Ready for Prime Time Challenging the 13″ to 15″ PC, LapTop and the Education Market. iPad Pro is reported to be designed as a 12.9″ iPad “Retina” high resolution display, (recall the traditional iPad 5 with its 9.7″ retina-display, and iPad-mini retina display with its 7.9″ display) iOS system.

ğŸŽ Apple iPad-Pro, the larger sized 12.9″ iPad is directly targeting 13″ 14″ and 15″ PC LapTops, Desk PCs, and Education.

ğŸŽ Apple iPad-Pro, the larger 12.9″ display is perfect for Academic Text Books used in Schools and Universities. Apparently, the iPad Pro “qualifies as a legitimate product rumor” as several others are touting an Apple New Product, the iPad Pro.

ğŸŽ Admittedly, I’m part of the rumor problem; however, I must admit that yours truly, standing alone wrote about this topic several years ago. My writing then was not a product rumor, as the article was written about an Apple product that I wanted for my work-flow.

ğŸŽ Apple delivering larger 12.9″ display is perfect to compete with 13″ to 15″ laptop and desktop computers. Think about it, a large display iPad with its amazingly fast iOS, inexpensive and voluminous inventory of Application Software Apps, dynamic Display that is Tough-Screen. Apple’s history has delivered Laptops in various sizes to meet the “Portability” requirements of their users, like 11″, 13″, 15″ and 17″ MacBooks. So it makes sense that iPads could come in three flavors: 7.9″, 9.7″ and 12.9″ iPads.

ğŸŽ More Industry sources close to the production line and familiar with Apple’s product roadmap say that a 12.9″ display is in the works for a product called the iPad Pro. Apple is reportedly already talking to potential supply-line manufacturers to create this humungous display which is set to be released in 2014.

ğŸŽ Apple is reportedly is really planning to launch a much larger iPad with a higher resolution screen next year, 2014. Sources familiar with the matter told Chinese website “Pad News” that Apple and its Chinese partner Foxconn Technology Co., Ltd are testing 5 different prototypes of 12.9″ iPads. These larger sized iPads may feature 2K and 4K resolutions.

ğŸŽ New iPads may sport double the resolution of iPad Air. Reliable sources say Apple may launch the larger-screen iPad Pro by April 2014. An iPad Pro may launch with a 4K resolution 12.9″ display to hit the market in October, 2014 when the Cupertino-based company updates its product cycle. The current iPad Air with 9.7″ display has 2,048-by-1,536 pixel, or 264 dpi resolution. This display resolution already falls in the 2K category. By definition the Long-Side horizontal resolution of 2000 pixels is referred to 2K, for 2 thousand.

ğŸŽ Chinese Sources said that an iPad build to a 4K resolution would likelt have a resolution of 4096 x 3072, exactly double the horizontal resolution of iPad Air which is 2,048 pixels. In order to maintain the same “aspect-ratio” of the iPad Air, then the Vertical dimension would also have to be doubled to 3072 pixels. If this occurred, then the new iPad Pro would have 400% more pixels spread within the 12.9″ display. The new iPad Pro is also rumored to sport 397dpi pixel density, compared to the iPad Air’s 264dpi.

ğŸŽ Apple will actively target 13” PC ultrabooks and notebooks, with the iPad Pro, or whatever Apple chooses to name it, by providing the device with better portability, better battery life, and comparable screen real estate for productivity applications. Another target for the 12.9” iPad, is the educational market, enabling a beautifully display of digital-textbooks. This bigger display is better suited to replace traditional textbooks, just from a size stand point, and Apple with its supply-line partners, are also developing a new display technologies with less weight and less glare, more suited for use in classrooms.

ğŸŽ Many are now speaking of a 12.9″ iPad, with or without an Apple ClamShell. Being full of suggestions, so whats next in the pipeline… Lets create a iPad-Maxi which would have the appearance similar to the MAC Book Air, but that is where the similarly ends.

ğŸŽ This new iPad Maxi, is a portable or desktop computing “game changer” as it employs the Apple iOS amazingly efficient operating system; that’s right… NOT an OSX laptop, but an iOS6 or iOS7 operating system platform, housed in a “super-charged” iPad-maxi with a huge 12.9″ maxi-display.

ğŸŽ Using an exterior similar to the MacBook Air’s foot-print, the iPad Maxi would be “supercharged iPad” with:

ğŸŽ Touch-Screen Retina-Display, designed to challenge the Post PC traditional 13″ to 15″ LapTop computers

ğŸŽ Apple 12.9″; iPad optionally housed within the clam-shell lid, by the After Market.

ğŸŽ Key Board, using Apple’s world famous bluetooth keyboard, build into the clam-shell’s bottom shell.

ğŸŽ 360˚ Hinge. A new clam-shell optional design to have a 360˚ hinge.

ğŸŽ Perhaps Apple will leave the ClamShell feature to the AfterMarketeers.

ğŸŽ This would redefine the Laptop, just as the Apple iPad redefined the Tablet

ğŸŽ In my humble opinion, Apple gets the message that Computing these days is more to do with Communications than Calculations, knowing the present day PC laptop sales are eroding with the iPad. Folks love the iPad’s Communications, Visuals, Web Browsing, Pictures & Video Viewing capabilities, combined with a very compact, light weight design.

ğŸŽ As the transition from the PC to the iPad becomes more profound, and if the iPad maxi, a super-charged iPad, as outlined below, many more Windows PC’ers would migrate to Apple; Conversly, If you want a more compact device the iPadv4 footprint is perfect, as I presently have with Belkin’s Ultimate Keyboard Case, discussed in another Article. If you want more horsepower, then the iPad-Maxi described below would satisfy this need; want even more power then the MAC Book Air is it… Want even more Power, then the MAC Book Pro answers this need…

ğŸŽ Apple’s MAC laptops are designed with 4 Display sizes: 11″, 13″, 15″, 17″. It is surely reasonable to have the iPad in 3 Display sizes, to serve eveyone’s needs. Apple in April, 2010 Apple released the initial iPad with what Apple believed to be the “Optimal 9.7″ Display; Within 24 months the iPad grew to sales of about 50 million iPads/year.

ğŸŽ November, 2012 Apple met the demand for a more-compact iPad Display, when it released the iPad mini; The iPad-mini’s is having incredible success; The iPadv4 and the iPad-mini combined sales are about 65 million iPads/year.

ğŸŽ Apple in 2014 may be considering the opportunity of a One-Size-Up to a 12.9″ Display from the original iPad’s 9.7″ Display. After all once the design of the iPad’s “Internal Electronic Package” is a complete package; however, an evolving package, configuring 3-iPad footprints is a “relatively” easy task: 3-Enclosures, 3-Displays, 3-LiON Batteries, all housing the “Internal Electronic Package.” Leave it to the “After Market” enterprises to fill in the balance of Covers, Cases, Keyboard Cases…

ğŸŽ Not sure which size iPad or alternative to get for yourself, here is a simple decision-tree to help you along the way.


Lets have a “Super-Charged” iPad…. the iPad-Pro:

🔷 more Hardware Connectivity, Lightning plus a Standard SD Picture Card slot

🔷 more Memory say 4GB,

🔷 more Storage say 128GB base the storage, 128GB add $100, 256GB add $200. Memory is inexpensive, so give the folks a good chunk of it.

🔷 more Connectivity say LTE, 4G and 3G Cellular, optional $130 radio package to the standard WiFi a/b/g/n/ac bands

🔷 faster Processor say 2GHz, coupled to

🔷 more Real Estate: 12.9″ Touch-Screen Retina Display.

🔷 larger Footprint with an Optonal 360° Hinged ClamShell provided by the After Market, where the iPad-Pro snaps into the top-shell, similar to the ClamCase design for the iPad-Air.

🔷 similar but improved Mathematics & Calculating capacity to the traditional iPad.

🔷 Pricing for the Base model $599 which includes 64GB storage, 2GB RAM, A8 Processor at 3GHz, and priced up to $999 for the fully loaded LTE/Cellular version.

🔷 I will be saving my dollars for the $999 iPad Pro for sure.

🔷 my plan, may be selling my iPad mini Retina, with 128GH to Gazelle, to help defray the cost of the iPad Pro. OR I retain the “MINI” to have the very portable iPad mini retina, and the much larger iPad Pro for those more intense Image Editing, Video jobs, Spreadsheets, or simply a very portable table-top iPad Pro, adding a bluetooth keyboard.

As a “Health Nut” for Health & Wellness; http://www.Jim.Wilson.Isagenix.com

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release mid-year 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, I will be changing to it soon with 128GB of Storage and Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover; however, the WiFi only model. My thought is there are so many WiFi zones available these days, investing in the $130 LTE Cellular chipset upgrade is mitigated by my iPhone 5S with its “HOT SPOT” capability. Therefore, if I have migrated into non-WiFi area, or I desire a more Secure Internet Connection, its very easy to Activate my iPhone’s Hot Spot, which serves as a mini-router, accepting up to 5 WiFi enabled devices, for internet connectivity.

 

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Important Rumor RoundUp ~ Addition of Dual-Pixel Precision Live Auto-Focusing Technology and Expanded HDTV Video Capabilities including 60fps at 1080p ğŸŽ¥ğŸ“·ğŸŽ¥ğŸ“·ğŸŽ¥ğŸ“·ğŸŽ¥ğŸ“·

1409077073.jpg

★ Canon’s New 7D Mark II to have 20.2MP Dual Pixel Imager + GPS + WiFi Built in. We’ve heard of some specs of the EOS 7D Mark II surfaced this week, from very reliable sources.

★ The EOS 7D Mark II is expected to be announced September, 2014 at Photokina Event, Cologne, Germany, which is the Largest Photo Show globally, held every two years, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016…

★ These specifications confirms the 20.2MP sensor reported recently. Canon’s New dual-pixel technology will be incorporated into all of Canon’s new SLR releases including the 7D Mark II. This dual-pixel technology functions as a huge phase-detection auto focusing which is very accurate particularly with the mirror is UP, when the camera is in MOVIE Mode, or Live View still imaging.

★ I have been testing this feature on the Canon 70D, and the results are definitely a “GAME CHAGER” for CANON. Many DSLR users, self included, are using the HDTV, 1080p Movie Mode, as well as for high quality digital stills.

★ Present day “lazy focusing” during video capture using a SLR design of the 5D3 or the 7D is a big disadvantage when using Live-View. With Canon’s EOS 7D Mark II Dual Pixel imaging, true live-view auto-focusing capability is a reality, adding a quality dimension for Live-View Still imaging and sharp Video Clip capture even when the subject is constantly moving. When recording high definition video when you shift the lens from the subject-foreground to the background the lens very smoothly refocuses to the background, due to the excellent performance of the dual pixel phase detection system.

★ Dual Pixel Imaging, How it Works. The EOS 7D Mark II features a newly-designed Canon APS-C CMOS sensor with 20.2 million pixels. All effective pixels on the surface of the EOS 7D Mark II sensor consist of two individual photodiodes, which are read separately for phase-detection autofocus and together for imaging. Dual-Pixel CMOS AF is possible over 80% of the width and height of the Live View frame and is highly accurate without compromising on image quality.

★ Unlike other methods of sensor-based autofocus, which allocate either autofocus or imaging functions to pixels on the sensor, the pixels on the EOS 7D Mark II CMOS sensor can be used as imaging pixels and phase detection AF pixels. As a result, no additional imaging processing is required around pixels dedicated for AF, which ensures both quick acquisition of focus and maximum image quality.

★ By using this phase-difference AF technique the EOS 7D Mark II predicts the position the lens is in focus and moves it. By contrast, the more conventionally used contrast AF method looks for the focal position while moving the lens back and forth, so AF speed is much slower, not as smooth, as the lens “hunts” for fine focus. In low light this effect is exacerbated.

★ With face and object tracking engaged, Movie Servo AF follows a chosen subject as it moves, or when you recompose a shot. Alternatively, just select different focus areas by simply by tapping the touch-screen when recording.

★ Dual Pixel CMOS AF is compatible with 103 current EF lenses, spanning EF and EF-S, fixed focal length, wide-angle and telephoto lenses. The system marks a significant advancement in autofocus performance with greatly improved AF speeds.

★ Canon EOS 7D Mark II Specifications

★ Kit lens: 18-135 IS STM, a well build image stabilized lens, giving an effective zoom range of 29-216mm when coupled to the 7D Mark II
★ CF Card: UDMA mode 7 and SD Card: 10 UHS-I, SDHC I
★ GPS and WiFi built into the camera
★ 20.2MP APS-C Sensor
★ Dual Pixel CMOS AF (as used in the new Canon EOS 70D)
★ Dual new DIGIC-6 Processors, to handle highly complex image processing of still images and HDTV video at 60 frames per second
★ 65 AF points “All Cross-type”. Dual cross on the center point
★ f/8 on center point at least, could be on more points
★ Shutter speed 10fps
★ ISO Range 100-12800, ISO Hi modes of: 25600 and 51200
★ 1080p/720p both capture rates of: 60fps, 30fps and 24fps
★ Servo AF for video shooting due to Dual-Pixel technology
★ Anti-flicker mode, eliminates flickers of fluorescent and other lamps)
★ Spot metering size 1.8%
★ Built-in pop-up flash
★ External socket for Mic and headphone connectors
★ Capable of syncing time-code between multiple 7D II cameras
★ Lens electronic MF
★ 100% coverage OVF
★ New LiON Battery, LP-E6N @ 2500mAh @ DC7.2V (more Power however same shape and size as the LP-E6)

★ We are Zacuto Fans, using the Z-FIND-PRO3 with our Canon 5D3 and Canon 7D cameras. Zacuto’s Z-Finder Pro 3x optical viewfinder is an excellent tool for shooting sharp, stable video on DSLR cameras like the Canon 5D MkII, 70D, 7D, Nikon D90, D300s and others.

★ Whether shooting handheld or on a tripod, the Z-Finder Pro turns your camera’s 3″ LCD screen into a clear, easy-to-focus viewfinder. This accessory lets you see your image in magnified detail even under the brightest sunlight. Just as crucially, the Z-Finder provides an extra degree of handling comfort and a crucial point of contact, between camera and eye, that adds stability to all our handheld videos.

★ The Z-Finder $360 attachment really transforms our Canon 70D, 7D2, 5D3, 1DX into a high performance Video Camera. It is very easy to remove, then your Canon EOS Digital camera returns to being a high quality still-image digital SLR.

★ Canon’s New 7D Mark II to have 20.2MP Dual Pixel Imager + GPS + WiFi Built in. We’ve heard of some possible specs of the (rumored) EOS 7D Mark II surfaced this week. The EOS 7D Mark II is expected to be announced September, 2014 at the Photokina Convention held in Cologne, Germany.

As a result, no additional imaging processing is required around pixels dedicated for AF, which ensures both quick acquisition of focus and maximum image quality.

★ By using this phase-difference AF technique the EOS 7D Mark II predicts the position the lens is in focus and moves it. By contrast, the more conventionally used contrast AF method looks for the focal position while moving the lens back and forth, so AF speed ends up being slower and not as smooth.

★ With face and object tracking engaged, Movie Servo AF follows a chosen subject as it moves, or when you recompose a shot. Alternatively, just select different focus areas by simply by tapping the touch-screen when recording.

★ Dual Pixel CMOS AF is compatible with 103 current EF lenses, spanning EF and EF-S, fixed focal length, wide-angle and telephoto lenses. The system marks a significant advancement in autofocus performance with greatly improved AF speeds.

★ We are Zacuto Fans, using the Z-FIND-PRO3 with our Canon 5D3. Zacuto’s Z-Finder Pro 3x optical viewfinder is an excellent tool for shooting sharp, stable video on DSLR cameras like the Canon 5D MkII, 7D, Nikon D90, D300s and others.

★ Whether shooting handheld or on a tripod, the Z-Finder Pro turns your camera’s 3″ LCD screen into a clear, easy-to-focus viewfinder. This accessory lets you see your image in magnified detail even under the brightest sunlight. Just as crucially, the Z-Finder provides an extra degree of handling comfort and a crucial point of contact, between camera and eye, that adds stability to all our handheld videos.

★ The Z-Finder $360 attachment really transforms our Canon 5D3 into an high performance Video Camera. It is very easy to remove, so the 5D3 returns to being a high quality still-image digital SLR.

★ The Pro 3x version offers an adjustable diopter that enlarges the LCD image by a factor of 3, so you can see every detail for pinpoint focus.

★ The Z-Finder viewfinder attaches to your camera via the included Gorilla Baseplate and Z-Finder mounting frame, which mount to the bottom of your camera using a standard 1/4″-20 screw. A non-stick rubber backing ensures a tight fit and prevents scratching of the LCD screen, so that the entire Z-Finder snaps off easily when not in use. Once detached, the unit can hang conveniently around your neck from the included lanyard.

★ The specifications recited above of the EOS 7D Mark II are a Big Step-Up from the EOS 70D. Canon’s intensions are to establish the 7D Mark II as its New APS-C Flagship Camera, an $800 step over the EOS 70D, with the rigorous Build-Quality of the Canon 5D Mark III.

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release April, 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, (I sold my iPad 4 to Gazelle.com) applied the proceeds to purchase the "mini" with 128GB of Storage, AT&T connectivity, plus added Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover, and an ACME MADE San Francisco rubberized thin slip-over protective case. This thin package actually fits into my trousers pocket.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 ~ iPhone 6L, 22nd Rumor Roundup 1⃣ Apple is 15 Days & Counting 2⃣ Announce TWO new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L 3⃣ Media Event to be held Tuesday 9/9/2014 Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 and 6L 4⃣ both in full production in August ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

1408976209.jpg

ğŸŽ Battle of the iPhone 6 Rumors is in Full Bloom and Contradiction, now that we are just 15 days and counting to Apple’s Media Event reportedly on September 9th.

ğŸŽğŸŽ Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap has been blighted by suggestions of component issues, manufacturing problems, quality control, relating to the production of the iPhone 6 and the larger iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display model. However, don’t believe everything you hear or read.

ğŸŽ We have been noticing the “mock-ups” of these two new models, borne from schematics apparently captured from FOXcomm computer screens. It seemed to us that the iPhone 6L looked much larger than the iPhone 6. This motivated me to make white-board cut-outs for the iPhone 6L measuring 158mm by 78mm and the iPhone 6 measuring 138mm by 67mm.

ğŸŽ Holding these two “samples” in hand, made it easier to visualize which model may be best for Marilyn and myself. Before handling these mock-up cut-outs, Marilyn was satisfied with the 4.7″ iPhone 6 choice. After holding these two white-board cut-outs, Marilyn changed her choice for the Larger iPhone 6L. Apparently, since Apple has maintained the 16:9 display format, then add the Home button and ear-phone to the Bottom and Top of the iPhone 6, the overall shape appears somewhat longer and not-as-wide as other Phablet models I’ve handled. These iPhone 6 and 6L dimensions make for very comfortable form factors, easily resting in ones hands.

ğŸŽ What Does Jimmy Think: Therefore once Apple makes the new iPhone’s available on-Line, and assuming the “leaked” schematics are reflective of the iPhone 6 and 6L, we will pre-order two iPhone 6L models. We will equip Marilyn’s iPhone 6L with 64BG storage, as she has almost filled the 32GB storage in her iPhone 5; I will upgrade to the 128GB storage option, as I am using most of the 64GB resident on my iPhone 5. Recall that Doubling the memory storage option at a cost of $100 premium, represents a good value IMHO, and eliminates the annoying chore of plucking images, videos, and files for deletion, as memory limits are reached.

ğŸŽ DropBox is a Great way to store, backup, and access individual images and files. One of the short-comings of Apple’s Back-Up, is it will not permit the view or restoration of individuals files or pictures. Presently Apple’s Back-up to the iCloud creates a BackUp of the entire iPhone and/or iPad, so that the entire iDevice may be restored in the event your iDevice is lost or broken, or upGraded to a New iDevice. DropBox gives the user the ability to View, Forward, Download any file or picture once you’ve synced your iPhone, iPad, or PC to your DropBox storage. Dropbox permits up to 5 GB of Free Storage, and charges $9.95/month for an added 100GB, or $99/year saver plan.

ğŸŽ Presently I utilize well over 50 GB of 64 GB of portable iPhone/iPad files, letters, Agreements, Spreadsheets, PDF files, Photos. Accordingly I elected DropBox’s 100GB plan. DropBox’s remote (Cloud-type) storage capability doubles as another back-up resource to Apple’s Backup, with the added feature of being able to view, remove, add files to, forward, download, files, pictures, PDFs into Your iPhone, iPad, PC, or any another Computer anywhere, PassWord secure.

ğŸŽ Lets not Forget that Android-Google operating system environments are the Most Vulnerable to malicious Malware, Trojan, Spyware, Virus attacks, due their users refusal to upgrade to their new operating systems. Apple has over 90% of its users have upgraded to Apple’s iOS 7, where less than 20% of Android users have updated to their new KitKat operating system, both released in the same week of September 2013.

ğŸŽ ANDROID MALWARE MARKER: G DATA RECORDS ALMOST 1.2 MILLION NEW MALWARE INSTANCES IN 2013 ~ GERMAN IT SECURITY PROVIDER PUBLISHES MOBILE MALWARE REPORT

ğŸŽ “02/24/2014 | BOCHUM According to market research by Gartner, over 877 million Android smartphones and tablets were purchased during the past year. The number of new malware programs for Android devices increased in line with this development during the second half of the year, to almost 673,000 instances. The number of new malware programs for the year as a whole reached a new record of 1.2 million. The perpetrators are largely relying on Trojan horses to steal and sell lucrative data. Another eCrime trend was potentially unwanted programs. These are not conventional malware apps, but they can be used to display unwanted advertising and to spy on users. G Data believes that cross-platform attacks will increasingly take place in future, and that digital currencies such as Bitcoin will be targeted by the perpetrators. Alongside this, premium rate SMS message fraud is declining again because of the security mechanisms in newer versions of Android. The G Data Mobile Malware Report is available online.”

ğŸŽ “We recorded a new negative record for 2013, with 1.2 million Android malware programs. In doing so, the eCrime industry is largely relying on the theft of personal data that can be sold for profit in dedicated markets,” explains Eddy Willems, G Data Security Evangelist. And there is no chance of the expert giving the all-clear for this year. “From the perpetrators’ perspective, 2014 is the Year of Data Theft, since fraud involving expensive premium rate SMS messages is no longer profitable as a result of the security mechanisms installed in Android 4.2 and higher. This means that cross-platform attacks and digital currencies such as Bitcoin are growing in interest for cyber criminals in the mobile sector.”

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 ~ iPhone 6L, 22nd Rumor Roundup
1⃣ Apple is 15 Days & Counting
2⃣ Apple to Announce TWO new iPhones: the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L
3⃣ Media Event to be held Tuesday 9/9/2014 Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 and 6L
4⃣ iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L in Full Production in August, 2014
5⃣ New iPhones Most Resistant to Malware & Virus Attacks according to FBI

ğŸŽ Presently, there are multiple-sources claiming to have inside knowledge (don’t they always) of Apple’s plans speculating that the larger “phablet” handset will be delayed. However, this is the first time that writers have actually cited sources, suggesting that the new iPad Air v2 and the iPad mini v3 may also be pushed back along with the larger iPhone, all of which is illogical.

ğŸŽ This is we Know: Apple is the only source in the know, who does not talk ~ Those that don’t really know are those that are doing the talking…

ğŸŽ Camp Alpha, says that there are not enough “leaked” component images for the iPhone Air, therefore its release may be delayed until October, 2014. The logic is since there are not enough “leaked” images for the iPhone 6L, therefore it may not exist is laughable. What the folks receiving the “leaks” are not focusing on, the internals for the two iPhone models are basically the same, except for the iPhone Container, the internal connecting cables, the internal Battery and the Display itself.

ğŸŽ Camp Beta, says that the main circuit boards for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L are principally similar. The “leaked” images of the connection cables, extending the main circuit board’s connectivity to the iPhone 6L’s plugs and buttons are Longer, as they have a longer path in the iPhone 6L’s larger cabinet. However, iPhone 6L has reported display fabrication issues with its display and battery.

ğŸŽ Camp Delta, says that there are issues with the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display iPhone model, as battery and display issues may delay its release until 2015, baloney.

ğŸŽ Conversely, Tim Cook has mentioned publicly earlier this year, not to draw conclusions about reported or rumored component supply-chain issues, as Apple has many alternate supply-chain resources and fabricators supporting its delivery of hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads currently in production.

ğŸŽ As Apple makes 90 million Units of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L handhelds, thats a lot of Units. Apple will not have its destiny, the delivery of tens-of-millions of iPhones, rest in the hands of only one fabricators, nor one component supplier, nor one circuit board maker… For safety and soundness of operating, Apple always has parallel production channels for delivery of their unique, high quality iDevices.

ğŸŽ Camp Jimmy, says that Apple will release BOTH iPhone models on the Same Day, even if Apple has to delay the announcement event a few days or weeks. IMHO, if Apple were to bifurcate the iPhone 6 models release dates, this will tend to “freeze” some of the iPhone 6 buyers until they have the opportunity to visualize both models side-by-side, self included. With our Cut-Out samples in hand, we’ve both decided on the iPhone 6L whenever its made available. If Apple only releases the iPhone 6 (and delays the iPhone 6L release) then there will be no iPhone 6 sale for us, as we will wait for the larger iPhone 6L to be released.

ğŸŽ Last year, 2013, Apple released two iPhone models, the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. On its opening weekend September, 20, 2013, iPhone 5S had $4 Billion in sales with 6 million units sold; iPhone 5C had $1.7 Billion sales with 3 million units sold.

ğŸŽ This Year, Sept, 2014, with a joint release of iPhone 6 with a 4.7″ and the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display model, there could be a virtual sales tsunami of over 15 million units sold in its opening weekend between the two models, with sales of over $10 Billion in profitable revenues.


ğŸŽ This is a Video Clip of the New iPhone BOX. http://youtu.be/-VxCxfPfoeE


ğŸŽ Apple to release two New Large-Display iPhones on September, 2014, with an all-new redesigned 4.7" model Plus a Larger Display 5.5" version.

ğŸŽ Both Apple iPhone hand-sets poised to take the high-end smartphone market by what’s bern characterized as a “Perfect Storm” in Apple’s iPhone life-cycle.

ğŸŽ Recent reports coming from China, suggests a 128GB storage option serves as an important differentiator between 4.7″ & 5.5″ models.

ğŸŽ Displayed is an image from an Asian “Leaked” announcement brochure showing the two new iPhone 6 models side-by-side, at 4.7″ and 5.5″ display sizes, Both to be released Simultaneously on September 19th, 2014, which matches our prediction made several months ago.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 Air 20th Rumor Roundup Update Summery
1⃣ Apple is 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day, 9/9/2014
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L in full production now
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production now
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model offers 128GB Memory Option
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model to have Sapphire Display “glass”
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model cost $100 more than iPhone 6
5⃣ Apple’s both iPhone 6 models add Temperature and Altimeter Sensors
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls, via iOS8
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ This is the “logic” supporting our theory regarding the potential release date of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6L and the simultaneous release of iOS8. The graphic below displays the time required for each of the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested showing iOS2, iOS3, iOS4, iOS5, iOS6, iOS7 and currently in beta, iOS8.

ğŸŽ A user of China’s Weibo microblogging service posted the image above of the alleged iPhone 6 promotional flyer, showing two models of the device; one featuring a 4.7″ screen and the other one with a 5.5″ screen. According to the flyer, both models of the iPhone 6 will be launched in China on September 19th, the date that was reportedly given away by German wireless-network provider Deutsche Telekom in a May inadvertent message to employees, blocking vacation time.

ğŸŽ iOS6 required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was certified by Apple for iOS6’s final release to the public. iOS7 required 7 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS7 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5S and 5C models about 10 months ago, specifically Friday, September 20, 2013.

ğŸŽ Looking at the “beta” versions to be evaluated and tested for iOS6, it required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS6 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5 Friday, September 19, 2012, however, Media Show to be held 9/9/2014.

ğŸŽ Lets Look at the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested for iOS8. Lets assume (this is analytics part) that the time consumed will likewise be a total of 100 days, before iOS8 cleared for its final release to the public. Since iOS8 will very likely be released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 6, lets calculate the future date.

ğŸŽ The bar-graph below shows that as of July 8, 2014 iOS8 is 40 days in beta testing. Assuming 100 days for completion of iOS8, then using my trusty iPhone’s math App emulating the HP 19B-II calculator, the final version of iOS8 will be loaded into iPhone 6 devices on or before Tuesday 09/02/2014.

ğŸŽ Therefore Friday, September 19, 2012 looks like a reasonable Date for the release of Apple’s iPhone 6 with iOS8 properly pre-loaded into the iPhone with its new Look, Feel, Features, Functions and Cyber Security protection.

July 8, 2014

ğŸŽ Apple released iOS8 beta3 for iPhone and iPad to the developers today, 8/July/2014. This 3rd beta for Apple’s upcoming major software update to iOS8, comes three weeks after the release of beta 2. The iOS8 beta3 has a build number 12a4318c, and may be downloaded from the iOS Dev Center (if you’re a registered developer) and have a compatible iOS device. Learn more about iOS8 beta3 and the links to download it from iOS Dev Center with your registered App Developer account.

ğŸŽ What’s with all the Beta versions for iOS8. The Operating System (the OS) for the iPhone and iPad defines how the device operates and communicates with all the electronic components from a “Machine Language” point of view. The OS is the interface between the App developers applications and the iPhone’s and the iPad’s hardware components. The OS also contains all the newest and most effective Malware, Spyware, anti-Virus algorithms to protect and secure your private and confidential information housed within iPhones and iPads.

ğŸŽ Apple’s software engineers invest hundreds of thousands of hours, literally years, in creating the iOS. Then Apple releases iOS8 beta1 to the development community. For iOS8, iOS7, iOS6, the whole number OS versions, the beta version is released to at the WWDC Conferences held annually in mid-year. This year WWDC 2014 commenced June 2, 2014.

ğŸŽ WWDC attendees, App Developers, a thousand of Apple’s best Engineers, plus other highly respected software engineers, many of which test the features and operability of iOS8. For several weeks these App developers and Apple’s software engineers communicate back-and-forth with information on iOS8 beta1’s operability.

ğŸŽ Apple then STOPS the beta-testing of iOS8 beta1, employs the fixes & improvements identified, then publishes iOS8 beta2 for the Development Community to again examine and test. This multi-segmented beta-testing process may require 100-120 days, and may continue for 6, 7, or 8 beta versions, whatever number of beta-versions are necessary, until Apple is “satisfied” with iOS8’s performance, features, and operability. Only then will Apple release iOS8, the finished version, to the Public, and pre-install the OS8 into the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Air, and subsequent iDevices.

ğŸŽ In the event Apple, the Development community or the Pubic quickly discover iOS issues or glitches, Apple will employ the fixes and release iOS 8.0.2 for example, addressing the software-bugs. iPhones and iPads are very complex, sophisticated communications and computational hand-held devices, that utilize extremely advanced software to operate. And so this process of Apple hardware development and iOS development, leap-frog upon itself, year after year, in effort to provide to all of us iPhones and iPads, that change our lives, and the way we all communicate with each other globally.

ğŸŽ Apple created/acquired a huge Sapphire plant so that it could place razor-thin super-hard covers over their iPhones and the future iWatches. Recall that the only material harder than Sapphire is Diamond, next in line of hardness is way down the line. Imagine having a sapphire display cover on your iPhone. No More Screen “Protectors” ruining the beautiful display in exchange for preventing a scratch… Those days are OVER soon.

ğŸŽ Know this about Apple… Apple detests the notion of iPhone users covering their beautifully designed iPhones, which it so carefully crafted from the very finest materials, is just like “Grandma” covering her beautiful furniture with “plastic” to preserve the fine fabrics. Hopefully sapphire puts iPhone users concern for display-scratches to rest forever.

ğŸŽ My Personal Sapphire Experience. I’ve been wearing a quality RADO watch a several thousand dollar beauty, which has a convex sapphire crystal cover, that after 10 years of continuous use, has not any marks whatsoever… Take a look at this brief video clip showing the resiliency of a paper-thin sapphire display cover. http://youtu.be/5R0_FJ4r73s

ğŸŽ It’s highly likely that mobile power users will see the Larger Display model, plus 128GB Internal Storage capacity, plus Optical Image Stabilization, would all serve as a more capable, multi-use, overall appealing device.

iPhone 5, 6, Air

🔢 Apple iPhone 6 #20 Rumor Roundup Update
1⃣ Apple’s only 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 in full production
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 model offers 128GB Memory Option
5⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 Adds Sapphire Display + Altimeter Sensor
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera uses new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ Reports, leaks, and speculation about the next-generation iPhone are popping out thick and fast now. In the last 24-hours we’ve heard that Apple will be differentiating specifications between the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 models.

1⃣ iPhone 6 large-display 5.5″ model will incorporate InvenSense Optical Image Stabilization technology, but not in the 4.7″ model iPhone 6. We’ve also heard rumors suggesting that both iPhone 6 models will have 32GB and 64GB storge capabilities, suggesting that the entry-level 16GB storage choice may increased to 32GB.

2⃣ Chinese report is now citing sources that suggests that the larger 5.5″ model will make iPhone history by being the first model to offer a 128GB internal storage option.

3⃣ Optical Image Stabilization to be offered on the iPhone 6 5.5″ model.

4⃣ The introduction of two devices with differing display sizes is quite unique too. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Apple is planning on offering a larger disply device. However, the question is, how will Apple differentiate between the two hand-sets in terms of functionality, and prehaps price too.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 is Slated for 20 Million Units Sold in 2014 plus more than Three Times this figure for the new 4.7″ iPhone 6 version.

ğŸŽ Best Guess, New iPhone 6 may be Announced at Apple’s special Presentation Meeting of iPhone 6 held in San Francisco, California, Tuesday, September 9th, Announcing the iPhone 6, its features, and the iPhone 6 Release Date of Friday, September 19th. Invitations likely sent to the Media Tuesday, September 2.

ğŸŽ Here is the Round-up of the most recent rumors out there in cyberspace, from the most reliable supply-line overseas sources. Recall that rumors are not facts.

ğŸŽ Apple believes in Surprises. Apple does Not “Leak” Anything. However, many times “leaks” derived from staff at the components-supply-line, have proven to be more “accurate” than undocumented cyber-chatter. These are the Most Likely specifications of the iPhone 6:

ğŸŽ iPhone released with 2 display choices 4.7″ and 5.5″
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to be 7mm thin
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to have A8 Processor, faster more comprehensive functions
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 1704×960 pixel dimension, 1.636 Megapixels
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 356 dpi for 5″ display or 416 dpi for 4.7″ display
ğŸŽ iPhone to contain new Altimeter/Pressure sensor

ğŸŽ iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP Imager, up from 8MP
ğŸŽ iSight Camera with f2.0 Aperture, up from f2.2
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved image Stabilization
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved ultra-low-light performance
ğŸŽ iSight Video delivers 30fps with full 1920x1080p stabilized resolution

ğŸŽ Notice the graphic below displaying an abstract of the beta-iOS8 Code provided to the Developers at WWDC, which “signals” a new hardware component, an Atmospheric Barometric Pressure sensor, that does not presently exist in any of Apple’s existing iPhone or iPad devices.

ğŸŽ Typically we see new iPhone releases arriving early enough, so that the opening weekend sales occur during Apple’s 4th quarter of their fiscal year. Recall that Apple sold more than 5 million iPhone 5 units in 2012 in the opening weekend; then iPhone sales topped 9 million with the joint-release of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in 2013.

ğŸŽ September, 2014 seems to be a relatively good guess for the iPhone 6 release, likely a combined release of the 4.7″ and 5.5″ versions, which would compare to the previous combined release in 2013. Here is a summary of the recent rumors on this topic
ğŸŽ iNew iPhone launch as early as September – Nikkei
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in August or September – Steve Milunovich UBS via Barrons
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in the fall – Andy Hargreaves at Pacific Crest via Business Insider
ğŸŽ New iPhone scheduled for third quarter 2014 – ZDNet Korea
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in September – Ming-Chi Kuo via MacRumors
ğŸŽ New iPhone 6 in September – iFun
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in August or September – Economic Daily News
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in September – Industrial Commercial Times
ğŸŽ iOS 8 new operating system release-date which was confirmed at the WWDC 2014 Conference for the fall, 2014
ğŸŽ New iOS software previously has been accompanied with the release of new iPhone hardware iterations.

ğŸŽ Apple typically employs staggered-Country release dates. Major markets like the United States are typically at the front while smaller markets usually lag behind by several weeks and occasionally several months.

ğŸŽ The Headline image shows the relative sizes of the existing iPhone 5 with its 4″ display, shown with the new 4.7″ iPhone 6, and the new iPhone Air with it 5.5″ display. Therefore, by mid-September upgrading iPhone users moving up from the iPhone 4 and 5, and many Android folks, that have been waiting for Apple to deliver larger displays, will have three display sizes to pick from, all having finger-print security, great camera systems, huge inventory of Apps, plus the marvelous Apple ecosystem.

ğŸŽ The combination of factors
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 4
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 5
ğŸŽ Apple receiving Migration from Android due to iPhone’s Large Display offerings
ğŸŽ Apple will receive a “Tsunami of Sales” to the iPhone 6 in 2014 and 2015!

ğŸŽ Apple kept its cards close to its chest about the forthcoming iPhone 6 at this week’s WWDC keynote address; however, new information has arrived from China, suggesting that Apple has solved the battery issues that reportedly plagued production of its expected 5.5″ iPhone 6. Therefore Apple is on course to ship 20 millions of the iPhone Air handsets in 2014.

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – Its 90 Days and Counting, Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 version is Slated for 20 Million Units to Sell plus 4.7″ iPhone 6 to Sell 70 Million in 2014, Plus over 200 Million iPhones to Sell in 2015. This brings the total number of iOS iPhones and iPads to

ğŸŽ 90 Million iPhones to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 200 Million iPhones to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 30 Million iPads to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 60 Million iPads to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 475 Million iPhones and iPads sold as of June, 2014 equals
ğŸŽ 855 Million iPhones and iPads in Service Everywhere

ğŸŽ The news states that Apple is partnering with the China-based Sunwoda Electronics to manufacture batteries for all of these devices, where the battery costs roughly $6.40 each. Apple’s regular battery supplier, Dynapack, will also help fill the battery order.

ğŸŽ While both iPhone 6 variations are expected to ship at the same release-date, it is likely that you may have an easier time finding a 4.7″ iPhone 6 than with the 5.5″ big brother.

ğŸŽ Apple is reportedly planning to manufacture 80 million iPhone 6 handsets for 2014, meaning that the larger “phablet” may be significantly outnumbered by the 4.7″ model by a factor of 4:1. This exclusivity (combined with the larger size of the device) likely suggests that the iPhone Air may come at a higher price point, say a $100 premium. I’ll Take TWO please.

ğŸŽ The Images above and below are all the iPhone Models from the initial iPhone in 2007, to the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and the pro-forma for the iPhone 6 with the 4.7″ display.

ğŸŽ Apple Said to Have Enough Sapphire Glass for Production of Both iPhone 6 Models and iWatch in 2014. Apple reportedly will have enough sapphire glass production for both of its iPhone 6 models as well as the iWatch in 2014, based on the latest supply-chain check at the company’s sapphire-glass manufacturing partner GT Advanced done by analyst Matt Margolis at Seeking Alpha.

ğŸŽ As a result of the most recent supply chain, it is believed that the Mesa, Arizona huge sapphire operation facility, should have ample supply for the new iWatch, the 4.7″ iPhone plus the 5.5″ iPhone with full sapphire cover glass in 2014. Additionally, the maximum sapphire screen capacity of the Mesa, AZ facility may exceed 200 million units/year.

ğŸŽ In February, 2014 Margolis estimated that Apple would be gearing up for mass production of devices with sapphire displays, with equipment in the factory leading to a yield of anywhere from 100 to 200 million ~5″ sapphire displays. A yield of over 200 million sapphire displays as indicated by this latest report means that Apple could possibly produce more than enough sapphire displays for the 4.7″ iPhone 6, the 5.5″ iPhone 6 and the iWatch.

ğŸŽ Previous reports indicated that sapphire display supply constraints may force Apple to reserve the scratch resistant material for its larger iPhone models, with expenses perhaps driving up the retail price for consumers. Other reports suggested that initial sapphire production would target the iWatch instead of the iPhone 6, however the reported volume of raw material and equipment purchased would likely hint at bigger plans for sapphire display production.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 is expected to be released later this year, with the 5.5″ iPhone 6 launching near the end of 2014. In addition to a sapphire display, both phones will likely include a thinner profile, a faster A8 processor, and an improved camera. Meanwhile, the iWatch is expected to be revealed at an October event and may launch later that month.

ğŸŽ This Year’s amazing WWDC keynote address was the most significant product introduction since Apple unveiled the original iPad in 2010. But this time, the revolutionary, magical product wasn’t hardware, it was software, iOS8. While the techno-analysts are arguing about display sizes and CPU speed, Apple quietly has been working on those hardware issues;

ğŸŽ However, Apple has been spending considerable effort, tens of thousands of engineering hours, with integrating these iDevices with each other and MACs, so that there operate consistently, and interchangeably. Integrating… even to the extent of you being able to answer a telephone call on your MAC laptop, as it integrates with your iPhone using iOS8 and MAC using its new Yosemite operating system. Apple is integrating household electronics, security systems, locking systems, garage-door openers, thermostats, lighting systems… you imaging it Apple and their 3rd party developers are delivering.

ğŸŽ Imagine, saying to SIRI, I’m ready for Bed, please lock-up the Apartment, set the lighting, the alarms, the thermostat, and awaken me at 7am tomorrow morning.

ğŸŽ We have NEST which is an automation thermostat that learns our heating and cooling desires, operates with our iPads and iPhones, and saves us about 25% on our electricity, as it “knows” when we are Away and when we Arrive, making Climate Control settings for us, after about a week of learning.

ğŸŽ If coming home early, I can open the NEST App on my iPhone, and start cooling the Apartment as its WiFi integrated, secure and accessible from across the street or cross country. Forgot to turn-off the Heat or the A/C, rushing to the Air Port, no problem, one can access NEST from the Airline Terminal telling it that we’ll be AWAY for 5 days. I’ve written a detailed Article on NEST… just search for NEST at the top of this site.

ğŸŽ Reported last week, Apple has engaged over 200 Chinese Security personnel to investigate and prosecute all the “leaks” that have been originating from Apple’s supply-line regarding the new iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ There are “signals” that lead me to deduce that there may be major Apple product Announcements at WWDC, other than, nifty Apps, the new Apple iOS8 operating software, and the latest and greatest for MACs’ operating system.

ğŸŽ Firstly, this is the first year that WWDC 2014 broadcasted via live-streaming at 1pm eastern time on Monday, June 2. Here is the link for a replay of the Keynote Address from the Moscone Center.

https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2014/

The iPhone 6 really won’t be too much of a surprise whenever it’s finally revealed since we’ve been seeing leaks showing us its shape and size for the past several weeks.

Apple may Announce both iPhone 6 and iPhone Air at one Media Event, however the iPhone 6 may be ship a week or two earlier than the iPhone Air.

📲 Apple is BLOCKING out days in September at all its USA retail stores, apparenty in preparation of New Product release(s). Some secrets just cannot be kept, as too many folks, in too many locations trumps iPhone secrecy. As we get closer to the September release Weekend (typically Friday, Saturday, Sunday) we’ll know more, for all those that are Chomping at the Bit for the latest and greatest technology device, self included.

📲 Jim Wilson’s blog is FAU4U2 on WordPress.com. The Blog link is: http://tiny.cc/e7pwfx We’re proud of the growing number of over 54,000 readers, who stay connected regarding Apple’s iOS personal communications devices, accessories, Apps, and other technology topics. FAU4U2 was created several years ago to provide a forum to answer the many questions that many FAU students throw at me 24/7 in this connected world we live in.

📲 My view, when in a classroom setting, whether as 5th grader, or in Graduate school, on Campus, or otherwise, if a few students have questions, there are likely many more students that just don’t ask, too shy, afraid of asking a “stupid question.” No questions are stupid questions. Therefore, when I get a few questions on a similar topic, I’ll likely create a blog-page on FAU4U2 giving a core response with some related information and research, as there may be millions of folks thinking about that topic.

📲 FAU4U2 Statistics: Presently our readership as of 2012/05/28 is 54,000 from over 30 Countries, reading 498 Articles, housed within 74 categories, marked with 324 Topic Tags for a more refined searching result, 816 Shares, and followed by 20 other blogs. A majority of our readers are from the USA, United Kingdom, Denmark, Netherlands, Australia, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, Mexico, Ukraine, Canada, Indonesia, Estonia, and Italy, listed in order of frequency of the articles read.

📲 Presently in the USA, 54% of all American smartphone owners have iPhones, the remaining smartphone users, the 46% smartphone users, are grouped together (the 12 brands and models of Androids, Blackberry, Google, Samsung, HTC, Motorola). Apple’s market-share in North America is growing. Industry experts expect, with the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone Air, Apple’s market share for their iPhones will grow at an accelerated rate.

📲 Apple iPhone “supply-line” chatter is hot and heavy as the next weeks speed forward. Combine this chatter with several layers of (Chinese) Mandarin translation, it becomes difficult to differentiate between “release date” with “announcement date” and availability. Expressed above is the best we could surmise.

📲 Virtually all of the rumors and schematics pertaining to Apple’s next iPhone center on its ultra-thin design and two screen sizes: 4.7″ and 5.5″ however, up until now we’re kept in the dark as to what screen resolution the larger 5.5-incher (the iPhone Air) might have.

📲 Recall none of these figures, dialog, and proforma-images, comes from Apple officially, but from “snitches” in its supply-line. Of course its no surprise that Apple totally ignores all these “news” reports and rumors.

📲 Other than leaked supply-line secrets, punishable by termination and prosecution by Apple, everything displayed and discussed is conjecture. However, since there are such a vast number of enterprises, engineers, and factory workers involved with the fabrication and assembly of the new iPhone models, whispers arriving from several directions that have a common-thread, could lead an observer to deductions as assembled in this article.

📲 iPhone 6 Release Date: Until Announced, Apple is silent. However, its hard to keep this date a secret with over 400 retail stores. These stores are beginning to “Black-Out” vacation days in September, generally a good sign that Apple requires “all hands on deck” for a new Apple product release. In the next few weeks, these retail store employee black-out dates will be fine-tuned.

📲 iPhone Air, according to new reports the 5.5″ iPhone may have a screen resolution of 1,704-by-960 pixels, a marked improvement over the current 4″ display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c.

📲 iPhone Air’s 1,704-by-900 pixel resolution is essentially a tripled of the “base display resolution” of 568-by-320 pixels. Before the iPhone 5, the iPhone 4 introduced the “Retina Display” representing a resolution of 960-by-640 pixels, which itself is a pixel-doubled 480-by-320 resolution found on the non-Retina 3.5″ original iPhone and the iPhone 3G/3Gs.

📲 Industry experts and analysts are anticipating huge release results, now that Apple is finally delivering LARGER display iPhones. Accordingly the prognosticators are also predicting an large influx of Android users that have been waiting to join the Apple EcoSystem, now that the display size issue is being resolved.

📲 Apple’s Retina Display: Apple’s retina display signifies a range of resolutions depending on the distance from ones Eyes the display is viewed. The human Eye is an organic camera system contain an auto-focus lens which focuses the subject light onto a dense-quilt of photo-sensitive living biological “Cone & Rod” cells. This organic array of specialized living cells, “attached” to the back-wall of the interior of one’s Eye is called the Retina.

📲 Ophthalmologists, have determined if one is reading a book, picture, iPad, iPhone about 14″ away from your Eyes, and if the content of the book’s font characters or pictures are comprised of picture-elements, pixels, the human Eye is not capable if distinguishing individual pixels from each other, if they are packed at a density of 300 pixels per inch, 300 ppi. Recall that 300 ppi means that there are 90,000 pixels within each square inch. The current 4″ diagonal display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c has a pixel density of 326 ppi.

📲 I’m a Believer – Apple is reported to have placed their iPhone 6 order for 90 million units! Looks like FOXCON is going to be very, very busy this year. Recall there are over 475,000,000 iPhones in circulation – there will be a huge number of UpGrades this year, plus a Large number of Migrations from Android to iPhone 6.

📲 Q1, 2014 Apple sold just under 50 million iPhones, therefore ordering 90 million units is giving Apple just a head-start for a what the industry and Apple believes will be a huge iphone 6 launch. In looking at the schematics and the prototypes constructed, Personally, I’m upgrading to the iPhone Air.

📲 The iPhone with its Apps transform the smartphone into a valued business tool, scanner, portable fax, communications device, eMail, Text messaging, and of course a Phone. It will be interesting if Logitech develops one of their UltraThin Keyboard Covers for the iPhone Air, as we both have the Logitech keyboard covers for our iPad minis.

ğŸŽ Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, He is in it, to Win It, Period! This intensity and commitment is terrific for Apple product users, as we are all going to receive better products, and great for Apple’s share holders.

ğŸŽ Speaking of Apple Shareholders. At Apple’s recent quarterly Conference Call, Tim Cook announced that it had a record profit Quarter, the company will be forward splitting its sharers 7-for-1, meaning if you presently own 100 AAPL shares, June 9th Apple will be sending you another 600 shares. This brings the present (6/4/2014) share-price of $644/share for example, to about $92/share, making its shares more “affordable” to an expanded audience of smaller investors.

ğŸŽ Take a look at the Graphic of iPhone Sales. Lets focus on the period of Q1+Q2, 2010 to Q1+Q2, 2014, in this 4 year period iPhone sales grew from 16 million iPhones in 6 months to over 100 million in 6 months. Look at the Slope of the Green trend-line.

ğŸŽ The Line is pointed UP, significantly Up. It does not take a PhD in mathematics and statistics to “extrapolate” what the future quarters may look like, if the the past trends have any possible “predictability” for what Apple’s iPhone future sales may be. No one knows for sure, but my Guess is Apple’s iPhone sales will continue to increase. Likely because Apple continues to reinvent the SmartPhone with innovations that people want.

ğŸŽ Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says, Apple is planning to debut two new iPhone models with two distinct screen sizes in 2014, an unprecedented move for Apple that traditionally has shied away from screen size wars. However a very large survey of iPhone owners, over 60% of their installed-base desires larger display sizes. The graphic of an iPhone may depict the ICON Layout for the new iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ Aside from obvious size differences, the top-of-the-line 5.5″ model will sport a high-resolution display of 1,920-by-1,080 pixels, which represents the same resolution as your large Flat-screen HDTV, translates to 401 pixels per inch, (ppi) in the palm of your hand. The 4.7″ iteration will use a 1,334-by-750 pixel-display to maintain scalability with existing iPhone Apps, representing a pixel density of 326 ppi, meeting or exceeding the “Retina” resolution, Apple set several years ago.

ğŸŽ Both handsets will use Apple’s next-generation A8 system-on-chip with 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM, low temperature polysilicon in-cell touch panels and Touch ID fingerprint security.

ğŸŽ Importantly, a near-field communications chip-set (NFC) and a metal casing are also part of the build. An 10-megapixel rear-facing camera with a f/2.0 aperture is expected, though Apple may improve the camera system to include an improved electronic or optical image stabilization to improve low-light performance, an exciting feature new to the smart-phones, taking the “camera shake” for low light “party” photography.

ğŸŽ As to aesthetics, the iPhones’ bezels are said to be 10% to 20% narrower than the current iPhone 5s, while thinness is pegged at 7.0 millimeters. Kuo also says Apple will move the location of the Top of the iPhone’s sleep/wake button to the right-side of the iPhone, to facilitate one-handed operation. This button-relocation may indicate a new feature that requires frequent pressing of the power button for other functions. Good we could actually need one more button, to eliminate too many soft-menus on the display.

ğŸŽ While the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be within Apple’s guidelines of one-handed operation, Kuo believes Apple may position from a product line-up perspective the 5.5″ version as a higher-end iPhone Air (Phablet) perhaps with an additional $100 premium. I’ll go for it.

ğŸŽ Kuo also believes the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be Apple’s main driver of handset sales in late 2014 and full-year shipments could exceed 60 million units. My guess it will be double or triple this estimate.

ğŸŽ The 5.5″ iPhone Air model may cannibalize some of the sales of the iPad mini, but if the company can marginally reduce the price-tag of its iPad mini, its iPad line-up should remain strong.

ğŸŽ IMHO, its better to cannibalize the iPad mini to yourself, than to be cannibalized by the Competitors, by not having the 5.5″ iPhone Phablet, as has happened over the last 18 months. This is probable the only “mistake” IMHO, Apple has encountered recently. However, who am I to say that Apple made a “misstep” when Apple is delivering 200 million iPhones/year currently. But, what’s not to like with another 30 million units sold.

ğŸŽ We may likely see a terrific migration from Android ➡️ Apple this year and next, perhaps at a rate of a 35% shift ➡️ Apple, with these two larger display choices in Apple’s iPhone line-up. Presently, Android users are migrating ➡️ Apple’s way at a rate of over 20% or more.

ğŸŽ Kuo expects both iPhone 6 models to hit store shelves in the 3rd Quarter of 2014, with Apple keeping the iPhone 5s and 5c on board as mid-tier and low-tier offerings. Due to the expanded handset lineup, the iPhone 4S and 4 will reach end-of-life in 2014.

ğŸŽ Details on Apple’s plans for the 2014 iPhone lineup were published on Tuesday by Japanese blog Macotakara. Citing a trusted source, “Apple has designed two larger iPhone models, sporting 4.7″ and 5.5″ displays, which are final candidates for launch in 2014.”

ğŸŽ Apple’s New iPhone 6 is without a doubt one of the most hotly anticipated smartphone launches of 2014. A dozen or so independent reports suggest that the handset will feature a new larger 4.7″ display and a fresh new design that is thinner than ever. The iPhone 6 is also expected to be accompanied by a new iPhone phablet that will include a 5.5″ screen to help attract new business over from the Android camp.

ğŸŽ Another day, another set of iPhone 6 rumors trickles out from the East Asia. According to the latest report, Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 is ready to enter its mass production phase in May, 2014, with 90 Million Units ordered. The timing would align perfectly with a launch in the 3rd Quarter of 2014. This timing is as expected by most of the other industry watchers. Interestingly, this new report suggests that Apple’s second new iPhone for 2014, the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ Display may be in mass-production until later in the 3rd quarter, 2014 which obviously suggests that it won’t debut until sometime later in 2014.

ğŸŽ We encourage Apple to release both iPhone 6 Models, the 4.75″ and the 5.5″ displays simultaneously. There is such a huge expectation that Apple will be coming out with a “Phablet” (a term Apple despises). If Apple delays the iPhone Air, it may significantly erode the launch of iPhone 6, folks waiting to see both devices, so to choose between the two. Personally, I would wait, and would recommend to my friends, to delay updating until both are announced and visualized. It would be better to delay the iPhone 6, so that it is released with the iPhone Air, than to bifurcate Apple’s iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ According to a report relayed by EMSOne, Taiwan-based Industrial and Commercial Times claims that Apple’s manufacturing partners will begin mass-producing the new iPhone 6 in July. With three months of lead time, that certainly could align well with a late September launch that keeps Apple’s fall iPhone launch pattern alive.

ğŸŽ Interestingly, however, the report claims that Apple’s larger iPhone Phablet may not enter mass-production until sometime in September. If accurate, the device may not debut alongside the iPhone 6, but instead perhaps in later 2014 or early 2015. Remember all these remarks are rumors and “deductions” from supply-line insiders.

ğŸŽ Despite the potential late-start for Apple’s iPhone Phablet production, Industrial and Commercial Times claims that both new iPhones will launch sometime in the fourth quarter this year.

ğŸŽ Apple’s new iPhone 6 is expected to feature an entirely new design with a 4.7″ display, a thinner housing and an upgraded processor. The iPhone phablet is expected to sport a similar design with a larger 5.5″ screen.

ğŸŽ If the reports we have been reading, even come close to representing the handsets Apple actually launches in the 3rd quarter of 2014, we may expect APPLE to crush the sales records the Company set in the fall of 2013, when the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C debuted together, Apple’s first announcement of 2-model on the same Day.

ğŸŽ Recall Apple sold 9 Million iPhones on the opening weekend, 50% greater sales than its previous release weekend of 6 million units. Remember about 55% of All American smartphone users are carrying Apple iPhones.

ğŸŽ Total iPhone sales since its beginning in July, 2007 is presently in excess of 475,000,000 units, Add to this 175,000,000 iPads, the total Apple iOS devices in use equates to roughly 650,000,000. Extend this figure to year end, 12/31/2014, Apple could be sitting with 800,000,000 iPhones and iPads in circulation.. sometime in 2015 Apple may be crossing this 1,000,000,000 threshold (yes that’s One-Billion) globally.

ğŸŽ IMHO, this is exactly what the iPhone Market needs, two serious screen sizes to choose between. The choice of either the 4.7″ display or the 5.5″ display will be perfect Selections to choose from, and will certainly silence the Apple critics for not having a choice of displays. Assuming Apple retains the current Model iPhone 5S, with the New Models, The iphone 6 with its 4.7″ display and the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ display.

Apple offering Four iPhones Models, covering a variety of Display Sizes

ğŸŽ iPhone 4S… 3.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… 99¢
ğŸŽ iPhone 5S… 4.0″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $99
ğŸŽ iPhone 6….. 4.7″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $199
ğŸŽ iPhone Air… 5.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $299

ğŸŽ Lets assume for the moment that Macotakara Publication is accurate regarding the two new display sizes. Lets further assume that Jimmy’s subsidized price “quesstimates” will range from 99¢ for the 3.5″ iPhone 4S to $299 for the 5.5″ iPhone Air, as shown above.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 Rumor Round-Up ⬆️ A Really Big Launch in 2014 ⬆️ Initial Supply Order 90 Million Units ⬆️ 2 Display Sizes ⬆️ 4.7″ & 5.5″ Displays ⬆️ 5G WiFi Connectivity ⬆️ 3 New Sensors: Humidity-Temperature-Atmospheric-Pressure ⬆️ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed

ğŸŽ The Graphic Above: Based upon leaked schematics (blue-line graphic below) discovered by Macotakara of the forthcoming 4.7″ and 5.5″ variants of the iPhone 6, Nowherelse teamed up with concept designer extraordinaire Martin Hajek to create what may be the most plausible look (graphic above) at what Jony Ive’s next iPhone design would look like yet,” John Brownlee reports for Cult of Mac.

ğŸŽ “All the proportions here are perfect: although it features a larger profile, a super thin design, and an edge-to-edge display, the design still features a beautiful internal symmetry that seems worthy of Apple,” Brownlee writes. “There are some changes: the edges are curved, more organic, and the volume buttons have been unified into a single rocker, but otherwise, it looks like an evolution of the current iPhone 5s. Which is exactly what the iPhone 6 would look like.” The Graphic below is the “leaked schematic blue-print.”

ğŸŽ The BIG Question is: Will iPhone Up-Graders pay-up $299 for the base model of the 5.5″ iPhone Air; Plus paying an added $100 for each step for 32GB, 64GB, 128GB Memory upgrades.

ğŸŽ What’s Jimmy Think: From my perspective, and knowing how valuable my iPhone is as a communications device, and the added utility of the iPhone, as a business tool, thanks to the 100+ amazing Apps that I use frequently, I may be “pleased” to pay $500, subsidized, for the 5.5″ iPhone Air with 64GB of storage. (The iPhone Air name is also an assumption).

ğŸŽ Lets look at “JimW’s iPhone 5S” Usage, I have about 22.9 GB remaining of the 64GB iPhone. It could be assumed with the iPhone Air’s larger screen, it may double as “my miniature iPad mini” perhaps needing to step-up the onboard storage to 128GB, matching my iPad mini’s capacity. Unfortunately, one cannot upgrade later, so this is “a one-time decision” of paying-up that extra $100 for Twice the storage, going from 64GB to 128GB, assuming this choice is available. Since I have 128GB on my iPad-Mini-Retina, I’d likely keep the storage on both devices uniform.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 should be a Really Big Launch in 2014 with Two Display Sizes, this quinella of iPhones will be Longer and Wider, Diagonal Measure: 4.7″ and 5.5″ Display Sizes ~ 5G WiFi Connectivity ~ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed ~ Three New Sensors measuring ambient Temperature, Humidity and Atmospheric Pressure.

ğŸŽ iPhone reports have it, that the 2 New iPhones may have internal components to measure Temperature, Atmospheric Pressure and Humidity sensors. It will be interesting how Apple’s engineers “shields” these three sensors from the internal ambient-effects of the warm electronics and that of the liON Polymer battery, as the iPhone’s circuitry operates and the battery discharges, which tend to become warm…

ğŸŽ iPhone Release Schedules. Historically, Apple released its original iPhone in June, 2007 with over a million units sold in its opening weekend. The next iPhone iteration, the iPhone 3G was released in July, 2008. (Notice that we’re focusing your attention to the “Major” releases, not the interim “S” releases).

ğŸŽ The next major iPhone release was June, 2010, with its iPhone 4, the date and model Marilyn and I bought our first iPhones. Subsequently, the iPhone 5 was released in September, 2012 with 6 million units sold in its opening weekend. The “September” release month was somewhat “off schedule” from the other June timings. This 90 delay delay, may have occurred due to some quality-control and/or supply-line issues, pushing back the release a few months; Total guesswork on my part.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is upon us reportedly, and interested folks are wondering when will the iPhone 6 be Announced and Released. My guess, Apple may return to the June, 2014 timing schedule, so that Apple has more time for the Sales of this likely “Block Buster” release with its reported larger 4.7″ brilliant display.

ğŸŽ I’ve predicted that Apple may have a 12 million iPhone weekend, with iPhone 6 new Two-Sizes Release. Also reported, Apple placed its initial order for the iPhone 6, ordered 90 million units from their experienced Apple supplier, Foxconn. Now That’s Confidence.

ğŸŽ The secondary questions, will Apple release Two Phones, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone Air on the same Day, similar to the release of iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C in September, 2013.

ğŸŽ These new models are reportedly expected to have similar button shapes for volume and mute as the iPhone 5c, as well as the same rounded back edges. In addition, it was said that the holes on the bottom of the handset for speaker and microphone will also follow the design established by the iPhone 5C.

ğŸŽ In looking at the leaked blue-prints, for the iPhone 6, the rounded edges give an appearance of the iPad mini, but thinner, without the angled-edges of the present iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ The larger 5.5″ model is said to be 7.5 millimeters thick, which would be the same as the iPad Air. This thinness would reportedly may require the rear iSight camera to protrude slightly from the case, much like with the fifth-generation iPod nano. Last year the Apple had to revise its “thinness” from 7.0mm to 7.5mm to avoid the slight protrusion.

ğŸŽ Macotakara, sourced for the story above, has a respectable track record in “predicting” Apple’s future iPhone plans. Last year, Macotakara revealed
(A) the 2013 iPhone lineup would come in a new range of colors, and it was also
(B) the first to claim that the iPhone 5s would feature a dual LED flash for more natural looking photos, and was
(C) the first to state that the new pill-shaped flash module would be accompanied by a
(D) the circular rear-facing microphone located between the flash and the iSight camera lens.

ğŸŽ The anticipated larger iPhone is rumored to be a high-end iPhone 5c, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will continue to have a plastic back, as the iPod nano achieves its colors with anodized aluminum. The new models are apparently a cross between the design of the iPhone 5c and the seventh-generation iPod nano. According to the source, the new larger iPhone won’t be a replacement for the existing iPhone 5c, but will be akin to a higher-end model.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is going be a really Big launch this year. Apple will finally offer, its reported, a bigger display to compete with the likes of the Galaxy S5 and other flagship Android phones and phablets.

ğŸŽ It’s not that Apple’s iPhone underperforms in any measure, its strictly that 69% of Existing iPhone Users desire a Larger Display, self included. In anticipation of this huge anticipated demand, Apple has reportedly ordered 90 million iPhone 6 units from Foxconn.

ğŸŽ News is picking up momentum and spreading like a viral disease, as a new report indicates that the iPhone 5C’s sales failure could move-up the Release Date of the iPhone 6, to a date earlier in 2014, than initially anticipated. Of course, only Apple knows, everyone else is guessing, and extrapolating.

ğŸŽ One thing for sure, Apple will release the iPhone 6, when its ready for a huge release. Since Apple’s release of the 5S and 5C simultaneously with a 9 Million release-weekend, Apple will surely be capable of having 15 Million of the iPhone 6 models available for its opening Weekend.

ğŸŽ According to the Australian rendition of the International Business Times, there’s a brand new report that has come fast and furious out of DigiTimes, indicating that there are more than a million iPhone 5C handsets sitting on retail and ISP’s shelves the around the world world, where Apple is having trouble designing a plan to move these units economically for the delivery source and Apple’s balance sheet.

ğŸŽ As noted by IBT… “Some consumers believed iPhone 5C failed to prove that it is a cheap iOS device. But the tables could turn when carriers and retailers drop the existing prices to clear the remaining inventory once the iPhone 6 will be released.”

ğŸŽ The 5C issue (this is a media-invented issue) could spell big trouble for Apple if the iPhone 5C proves to be a hamper in their profit-stride and the “Wall Street Expectations game.” One Duck writes an absurd story and the rest of the Quacks repeat it. (Take a look at an Article I’ve written regarding what I believe is an iPhone 5C success story http://tiny.cc/e5jhdx) However, Apple could “make up for the 5C matter” with very strong quarterly sales by the release of an Exciting iPhone 6, particularly if Apple gets to or Close to a 5″ Display combined with the very successful and popular golden iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ iPhone is due to be released later this year. The iPhone 6 seemingly will be packed with amazing features that will make it fly-off the shelves.

ğŸŽ Several innovative features are likely to set-up the iPhone 6 as the new Leader in the smartphones market, significantly outperforming (Galaxy’s S5 a similar dud as was Apple’s 5C) along any other releases from its competitors coming out the next few months.

ğŸŽ Since even Samsung being disappointed with the apparent “flop” of the Galaxy S5, this leaves the “Door Wide Open” for Apple to capture a relatively large number of folks ready to migrate from Android.

ğŸŽ Rumors have it that Apple is going for a wider and bigger display for the new iPhone 6. But that’s not the only thing that’s changing. Apple now has a new patent called ‘Systems and Methods for Preventing Light Guide Plate Scratching Artifacts‘ which leads us to believe that the iPhone 6 display technology will be truly innovative.

ğŸŽ Apple has stated that iPhone 6 will probably have “the most gorgeous display rendering ever in a mobile device.” Not only will it look modern and chic but the screen may come with a neat protection layer.

ğŸŽ It looks like the Retina display panel will be replaced with Quantum Dot technology which will come with sharper, crisper colors and improved brightness renditions.

ğŸŽ Knowing how important battery life is, apparently, iPhone 6 will come equipped with a battery that not only will it last longer and give users longer talk-time, but will also feature a source of energy that will replenish its electrical power very quickly.

ğŸŽ There have also been rumors about wireless charging, no need to elaborate on what a great feature would that be and how iPhone 6 would become the public’s favorite. Wireless Charging typically means that the device (the iPhone) would have a flat-thin-coil inside the rear cover.

ğŸŽ If you placed the iPhone onto a charger-platform, alternating current is electro-magnetically transmitted through the rear cover, “exciting” the internal flat-thin-coil. This energy is then converted into DC, direct current, which is managed and stored into the LiON battery. You may recall the Palm-PRE had this capability a decade ago. The charging platform and the iPhone could have internal ceramic magnets to that the iPhone is held in position on the “charger.”

ğŸŽ Wi-Fi signal improvements with the famous 802.11ac (a/k/a 5G WiFi) offering break-neck speed, and longer connectivity range, is rumored to be featured on the new iPhone 6. If this is true, users will be able to download or stream HD films in a matter of seconds even for very large HDTV video movie files. Gigabit speed equates to roughly 250,000,000 bYtes per second.

ğŸŽ In perspective, a typical 8 mega-pixel camera captures that have a file size of 5 Mega bYtes, thats a 5,000,000 byte file size. An iPhone that can transmit or receive data at Gigabit speeds, means that one could upload (or download) 50 full resolution images in ONE second. One one could download a full-length, 2 hour High Definition Movie in about 15 seconds.

ğŸŽ By design, 802.11ac is intended to operate only in the 5 GHz band. This avoids much of the interference at 2.4 GHz, including Bluetooth headsets, microwave ovens, and provides a strong incentive for users to upgrade their mobile devices to be dual band so that the 5 GHz band is more universally usable. This choice also streamlines the IEEE process by avoiding the possibility of contention between 802.11 and 802.15 proponents.

ğŸŽ Asus RT-AC66U 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless, at $189 these new Routers handle 5G. RT-AC66U offers very fast Wi-Fi on the 5GHz frequency band, both with Wireless-N clients and AC clients. In fact it’s the fastest of the few 802.11ac routers currently available on the market. The router also has very good range and its USB ports provide more than just the support for external storage and printers.

ğŸŽ To put Apple’s reported order in perspective, the Apple sold 51 million iPhones during its fiscal quarter ending Dec. 28th, 2013. Apple is anticipating a very large a leap in sales.

ğŸŽ The iPhone 6 may be fitted with a super-strong Sapphire crystal display, a more advanced camera, lens, image stabilization, an f2.0 aperture, and perhaps wireless charging. In addition, there are rumors that the iPhone 6 will feature a faster new A8 chip with a quad-core CPU and graphics.

ğŸŽ According to a Citigroup Global-Markets analyst, cited by the Commercial Times in China, Apple’s smartphone shipments are expected to rise a whopping 23% in 2014, compared to 13% increase in sales last year.

ğŸŽ IMHO if Apple delivers the iPhone 6 with a Display that contains a meaningful increase to 4.75" or 5.0" Apple iPhone will sell in huge numbers.

ğŸŽ Overall, analysts in IDC predict that smartphone growth will slow somewhat in 2014 to 19.3% growth, down from 39.2% growth factor in 2013.

ğŸŽ The reason: average smartphone prices keep dropping, as demand shifts to China. In other words, the iPhone 6 will likely be a huge seller, helping it stay ahead of the industry average in terms of growth and profitability.

ğŸŽ Note that Galaxy S5 was a big flop, disappointing users, investors, and Samsung, as demand for Samsung’s newest offering was not very exciting. If the iPhone goes to a 5" display its Demand will Explode.

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release April, 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, (I sold my iPad 4 to Gazelle.com) applied the proceeds to purchase the "mini" with 128GB of Storage, AT&T connectivity, plus added Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover, and an ACME MADE San Francisco rubberized thin slip-over protective case. This thin package actually fits into my trousers pocket.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 ~ iPhone 6L, 22nd Rumor Roundup 1⃣ Apple is 16 Days & Counting 2⃣ Announce TWO new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L 3⃣ Media Event to be held Tuesday 9/9/2014 Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 and 6L 4⃣ both in full production in August ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

1408911324.jpg

ğŸŽ Battle of the iPhone 6 Rumors is in Full Bloom and Contradiction, now that we are just 16 days and counting for Apple’s Media Event to be held September 9th. Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap may have been blighted by suggestions of component issues, manufacturing problems, quality control, relating to the production of the larger iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display model.

ğŸŽ We have been noticing the “mock-ups” of these two new models, borne from schematics apparently captured from FOXcomm computer screens. It seemed to us that the iPhone 6L looked much larger than the iPhone 6. This motivated me to make white-board cut-outs for the iPhone 6L measuring 158mm by 78mm and the iPhone 6 measuring 138mm by 67mm.

ğŸŽ Holding these two “samples” in hand, made it easier to decide which model is best for Marilyn and myself. Before handling these cut-outs, Marilyn was satisfied with the 4.7″ choice. After holding the two Card-Board cut-outs, Marilyn changed her choice for the Larger iPhone 6L. Therefore once Apple makes the new iPhone’s available on-Line, we will pre-order two iPhone 6L, Marilyn’s with 64BG storage, as she is almost full with the 32GB iPhone 5; I will upgrade to 128GB storage as I am using most of the 64GB on my iPhone 5.

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 ~ iPhone 6L, 22nd Rumor Roundup
1⃣ Apple is 16 Days & Counting
2⃣ Announce TWO new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L
3⃣ Media Event to be held Tuesday 9/9/2014 Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 and 6L
4⃣ both in full production in August, 2014

ğŸŽ Presently, there are multiple-sources claiming to have inside knowledge (don’t they always) of Apple’s plans speculating that the larger “phablet” handset will be delayed. However, this is the first time that writers have actually cited sources, suggesting that the new iPad Air v2 and the iPad mini v3 may also be pushed back along with the larger iPhone, all of which is illogical.

ğŸŽ This is we Know: Apple is the only source in the know, who does not talk ~ Those that don’t really know are those that are doing the talking…

ğŸŽ Camp Alpha, says that there are not enough “leaked” component images for the iPhone Air, therefore its release may be delayed until October, 2014. The logic is since there are not enough “leaked” images for the iPhone 6L, therefore it may not exist is laughable. What the folks receiving the “leaks” are not focusing on, the internals for the two iPhone models are basically the same, except for the iPhone Container, the internal connecting cables, the internal Battery and the Display itself.

ğŸŽ Camp Beta, says that the main circuit boards for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L are principally similar. The “leaked” images of the connection cables, extending the main circuit board’s connectivity to the iPhone 6L’s plugs and buttons are Longer, as they have a longer path in the iPhone 6L’s larger cabinet. However, iPhone 6L has reported display fabrication issues with its display and battery.

ğŸŽ Camp Delta, says that there are issues with the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display iPhone model, as battery and display issues may delay its release until 2015, baloney.

ğŸŽ Conversely, Tim Cook has mentioned publicly earlier this year, not to draw conclusions about reported or rumored component supply-chain issues, as Apple has many alternate supply-chain resources and fabricators supporting its delivery of hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads currently in production.

ğŸŽ As Apple makes 90 million Units of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L handhelds, thats a lot of Units. Apple will not have its destiny, the delivery of tens-of-millions of iPhones, rest in the hands of only one fabricators, nor one component supplier, nor one circuit board maker… For safety and soundness of operating, Apple always has parallel production channels for delivery of their unique, high quality iDevices.

ğŸŽ Camp Jimmy, says that Apple will release BOTH iPhone models on the Same Day, even if Apple has to delay the announcement event a few days or weeks. IMHO, if Apple were to bifurcate the iPhone 6 models release dates, this will tend to “freeze” some of the iPhone 6 buyers until they have the opportunity to visualize both models side-by-side, self included. With our Cut-Out samples in hand, we’ve both decided on the iPhone 6L whenever its made available. If Apple only releases the iPhone 6 (and delays the iPhone 6L release) then there will be no iPhone 6 sale for us, as we will wait for the larger iPhone 6L to be released.

ğŸŽ Last year, 2013, Apple released two iPhone models, the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. On its opening weekend September, 20, 2013, iPhone 5S had $4 Billion in sales with 6 million units sold; iPhone 5C had $1.7 Billion sales with 3 million units sold.

ğŸŽ This Year, Sept, 2014, with a joint release of iPhone 6 with a 4.7″ and the iPhone 6L, the 5.5″ display model, there could be a virtual sales tsunami of over 15 million units sold in its opening weekend between the two models, with sales of over $10 Billion in profitable revenues.


ğŸŽ This is a Video Clip of the New iPhone BOX. http://youtu.be/-VxCxfPfoeE


ğŸŽ Apple to release two New Large-Display iPhones on September, 2014, with an all-new redesigned 4.7" model Plus a Larger Display 5.5" version.

ğŸŽ Both Apple iPhone hand-sets poised to take the high-end smartphone market by what’s bern characterized as a “Perfect Storm” in Apple’s iPhone life-cycle.

ğŸŽ Recent reports coming from China, suggests a 128GB storage option serves as an important differentiator between 4.7″ & 5.5″ models.

ğŸŽ Displayed is an image from an Asian “Leaked” announcement brochure showing the two new iPhone 6 models side-by-side, at 4.7″ and 5.5″ display sizes, Both to be released Simultaneously on September 19th, 2014, which matches our prediction made several months ago.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 Air 20th Rumor Roundup Update Summery
1⃣ Apple is 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day, 9/9/2014
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L in full production now
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production now
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model offers 128GB Memory Option
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model to have Sapphire Display “glass”
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6L model cost $100 more than iPhone 6
5⃣ Apple’s both iPhone 6 models add Temperature and Altimeter Sensors
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls, via iOS8
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ This is the “logic” supporting our theory regarding the potential release date of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6L and the simultaneous release of iOS8. The graphic below displays the time required for each of the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested showing iOS2, iOS3, iOS4, iOS5, iOS6, iOS7 and currently in beta, iOS8.

ğŸŽ A user of China’s Weibo microblogging service posted the image above of the alleged iPhone 6 promotional flyer, showing two models of the device; one featuring a 4.7″ screen and the other one with a 5.5″ screen. According to the flyer, both models of the iPhone 6 will be launched in China on September 19th, the date that was reportedly given away by German wireless-network provider Deutsche Telekom in a May inadvertent message to employees, blocking vacation time.

ğŸŽ iOS6 required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was certified by Apple for iOS6’s final release to the public. iOS7 required 7 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS7 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5S and 5C models about 10 months ago, specifically Friday, September 20, 2013.

ğŸŽ Looking at the “beta” versions to be evaluated and tested for iOS6, it required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS6 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5 Friday, September 19, 2012, however, Media Show to be held 9/9/2014.

ğŸŽ Lets Look at the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested for iOS8. Lets assume (this is analytics part) that the time consumed will likewise be a total of 100 days, before iOS8 cleared for its final release to the public. Since iOS8 will very likely be released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 6, lets calculate the future date.

ğŸŽ The bar-graph below shows that as of July 8, 2014 iOS8 is 40 days in beta testing. Assuming 100 days for completion of iOS8, then using my trusty iPhone’s math App emulating the HP 19B-II calculator, the final version of iOS8 will be loaded into iPhone 6 devices on or before Tuesday 09/02/2014.

ğŸŽ Therefore Friday, September 19, 2012 looks like a reasonable Date for the release of Apple’s iPhone 6 with iOS8 properly pre-loaded into the iPhone with its new Look, Feel, Features, Functions and Cyber Security protection.

July 8, 2014

http://tiny.cc/eyaqix

ğŸŽ Apple released iOS8 beta3 for iPhone and iPad to the developers today, 8/July/2014. This 3rd beta for Apple’s upcoming major software update to iOS8, comes three weeks after the release of beta 2. The iOS8 beta3 has a build number 12a4318c, and may be downloaded from the iOS Dev Center (if you’re a registered developer) and have a compatible iOS device. Learn more about iOS8 beta3 and the links to download it from iOS Dev Center with your registered App Developer account.

ğŸŽ What’s with all the Beta versions for iOS8. The Operating System (the OS) for the iPhone and iPad defines how the device operates and communicates with all the electronic components from a “Machine Language” point of view. The OS is the interface between the App developers applications and the iPhone’s and the iPad’s hardware components. The OS also contains all the newest and most effective Malware, Spyware, anti-Virus algorithms to protect and secure your private and confidential information housed within iPhones and iPads.

ğŸŽ Apple’s software engineers invest hundreds of thousands of hours, literally years, in creating the iOS. Then Apple releases iOS8 beta1 to the development community. For iOS8, iOS7, iOS6, the whole number OS versions, the beta version is released to at the WWDC Conferences held annually in mid-year. This year WWDC 2014 commenced June 2, 2014.

ğŸŽ WWDC attendees, App Developers, a thousand of Apple’s best Engineers, plus other highly respected software engineers, many of which test the features and operability of iOS8. For several weeks these App developers and Apple’s software engineers communicate back-and-forth with information on iOS8 beta1’s operability.

ğŸŽ Apple then STOPS the beta-testing of iOS8 beta1, employs the fixes & improvements identified, then publishes iOS8 beta2 for the Development Community to again examine and test. This multi-segmented beta-testing process may require 100-120 days, and may continue for 6, 7, or 8 beta versions, whatever number of beta-versions are necessary, until Apple is “satisfied” with iOS8’s performance, features, and operability. Only then will Apple release iOS8, the finished version, to the Public, and pre-install the OS8 into the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Air, and subsequent iDevices.

ğŸŽ In the event Apple, the Development community or the Pubic quickly discover iOS issues or glitches, Apple will employ the fixes and release iOS 8.0.2 for example, addressing the software-bugs. iPhones and iPads are very complex, sophisticated communications and computational hand-held devices, that utilize extremely advanced software to operate. And so this process of Apple hardware development and iOS development, leap-frog upon itself, year after year, in effort to provide to all of us iPhones and iPads, that change our lives, and the way we all communicate with each other globally.

ğŸŽ Apple created/acquired a huge Sapphire plant so that it could place razor-thin super-hard covers over their iPhones and the future iWatches. Recall that the only material harder than Sapphire is Diamond, next in line of hardness is way down the line. Imagine having a sapphire display cover on your iPhone. No More Screen “Protectors” ruining the beautiful display in exchange for preventing a scratch… Those days are OVER soon.

ğŸŽ Know this about Apple… Apple detests the notion of iPhone users covering their beautifully designed iPhones, which it so carefully crafted from the very finest materials, is just like “Grandma” covering her beautiful furniture with “plastic” to preserve the fine fabrics. Hopefully sapphire puts iPhone users concern for display-scratches to rest forever.

ğŸŽ My Personal Sapphire Experience. I’ve been wearing a quality RADO watch a several thousand dollar beauty, which has a convex sapphire crystal cover, that after 10 years of continuous use, has not any marks whatsoever… Take a look at this brief video clip showing the resiliency of a paper-thin sapphire display cover. http://youtu.be/5R0_FJ4r73s

ğŸŽ It’s highly likely that mobile power users will see the Larger Display model, plus 128GB Internal Storage capacity, plus Optical Image Stabilization, would all serve as a more capable, multi-use, overall appealing device.

iPhone 5, 6, Air

🔢 Apple iPhone 6 #20 Rumor Roundup Update
1⃣ Apple’s only 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 in full production
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 model offers 128GB Memory Option
5⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 Adds Sapphire Display + Altimeter Sensor
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera uses new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ Reports, leaks, and speculation about the next-generation iPhone are popping out thick and fast now. In the last 24-hours we’ve heard that Apple will be differentiating specifications between the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 models.

1⃣ iPhone 6 large-display 5.5″ model will incorporate InvenSense Optical Image Stabilization technology, but not in the 4.7″ model iPhone 6. We’ve also heard rumors suggesting that both iPhone 6 models will have 32GB and 64GB storge capabilities, suggesting that the entry-level 16GB storage choice may increased to 32GB.

2⃣ Chinese report is now citing sources that suggests that the larger 5.5″ model will make iPhone history by being the first model to offer a 128GB internal storage option.

3⃣ Optical Image Stabilization to be offered on the iPhone 6 5.5″ model.

4⃣ The introduction of two devices with differing display sizes is quite unique too. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Apple is planning on offering a larger disply device. However, the question is, how will Apple differentiate between the two hand-sets in terms of functionality, and prehaps price too.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 is Slated for 20 Million Units Sold in 2014 plus more than Three Times this figure for the new 4.7″ iPhone 6 version.

ğŸŽ Best Guess, New iPhone 6 may be Announced at Apple’s special Presentation Meeting of iPhone 6 held in San Francisco, California, Tuesday, September 9th, Announcing the iPhone 6, its features, and the iPhone 6 Release Date of Friday, September 19th. Invitations likely sent to the Media Tuesday, September 2.

ğŸŽ Here is the Round-up of the most recent rumors out there in cyberspace, from the most reliable supply-line overseas sources. Recall that rumors are not facts.

ğŸŽ Apple believes in Surprises. Apple does Not “Leak” Anything. However, many times “leaks” derived from staff at the components-supply-line, have proven to be more “accurate” than undocumented cyber-chatter. These are the Most Likely specifications of the iPhone 6:

ğŸŽ iPhone released with 2 display choices 4.7″ and 5.5″
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to be 7mm thin
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to have A8 Processor, faster more comprehensive functions
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 1704×960 pixel dimension, 1.636 Megapixels
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 356 dpi for 5″ display or 416 dpi for 4.7″ display
ğŸŽ iPhone to contain new Altimeter/Pressure sensor

ğŸŽ iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP Imager, up from 8MP
ğŸŽ iSight Camera with f2.0 Aperture, up from f2.2
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved image Stabilization
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved ultra-low-light performance
ğŸŽ iSight Video delivers 30fps with full 1920x1080p stabilized resolution

ğŸŽ Notice the graphic below displaying an abstract of the beta-iOS8 Code provided to the Developers at WWDC, which “signals” a new hardware component, an Atmospheric Barometric Pressure sensor, that does not presently exist in any of Apple’s existing iPhone or iPad devices.

ğŸŽ Typically we see new iPhone releases arriving early enough, so that the opening weekend sales occur during Apple’s 4th quarter of their fiscal year. Recall that Apple sold more than 5 million iPhone 5 units in 2012 in the opening weekend; then iPhone sales topped 9 million with the joint-release of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in 2013.

ğŸŽ September, 2014 seems to be a relatively good guess for the iPhone 6 release, likely a combined release of the 4.7″ and 5.5″ versions, which would compare to the previous combined release in 2013. Here is a summary of the recent rumors on this topic
ğŸŽ iNew iPhone launch as early as September – Nikkei
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in August or September – Steve Milunovich UBS via Barrons
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in the fall – Andy Hargreaves at Pacific Crest via Business Insider
ğŸŽ New iPhone scheduled for third quarter 2014 – ZDNet Korea
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in September – Ming-Chi Kuo via MacRumors
ğŸŽ New iPhone 6 in September – iFun
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in August or September – Economic Daily News
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in September – Industrial Commercial Times
ğŸŽ iOS 8 new operating system release-date which was confirmed at the WWDC 2014 Conference for the fall, 2014
ğŸŽ New iOS software previously has been accompanied with the release of new iPhone hardware iterations.

ğŸŽ Apple typically employs staggered-Country release dates. Major markets like the United States are typically at the front while smaller markets usually lag behind by several weeks and occasionally several months.

ğŸŽ The Headline image shows the relative sizes of the existing iPhone 5 with its 4″ display, shown with the new 4.7″ iPhone 6, and the new iPhone Air with it 5.5″ display. Therefore, by mid-September upgrading iPhone users moving up from the iPhone 4 and 5, and many Android folks, that have been waiting for Apple to deliver larger displays, will have three display sizes to pick from, all having finger-print security, great camera systems, huge inventory of Apps, plus the marvelous Apple ecosystem.

ğŸŽ The combination of factors
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 4
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 5
ğŸŽ Apple receiving Migration from Android due to iPhone’s Large Display offerings
ğŸŽ Apple will receive a “Tsunami of Sales” to the iPhone 6 in 2014 and 2015!

ğŸŽ Apple kept its cards close to its chest about the forthcoming iPhone 6 at this week’s WWDC keynote address; however, new information has arrived from China, suggesting that Apple has solved the battery issues that reportedly plagued production of its expected 5.5″ iPhone 6. Therefore Apple is on course to ship 20 millions of the iPhone Air handsets in 2014.

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – Its 90 Days and Counting, Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 version is Slated for 20 Million Units to Sell plus 4.7″ iPhone 6 to Sell 70 Million in 2014, Plus over 200 Million iPhones to Sell in 2015. This brings the total number of iOS iPhones and iPads to

ğŸŽ 90 Million iPhones to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 200 Million iPhones to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 30 Million iPads to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 60 Million iPads to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 475 Million iPhones and iPads sold as of June, 2014 equals
ğŸŽ 855 Million iPhones and iPads in Service Everywhere

ğŸŽ The news states that Apple is partnering with the China-based Sunwoda Electronics to manufacture batteries for all of these devices, where the battery costs roughly $6.40 each. Apple’s regular battery supplier, Dynapack, will also help fill the battery order.

ğŸŽ While both iPhone 6 variations are expected to ship at the same release-date, it is likely that you may have an easier time finding a 4.7″ iPhone 6 than with the 5.5″ big brother.

ğŸŽ Apple is reportedly planning to manufacture 80 million iPhone 6 handsets for 2014, meaning that the larger “phablet” may be significantly outnumbered by the 4.7″ model by a factor of 4:1. This exclusivity (combined with the larger size of the device) likely suggests that the iPhone Air may come at a higher price point, say a $100 premium. I’ll Take TWO please.

ğŸŽ The Images above and below are all the iPhone Models from the initial iPhone in 2007, to the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and the pro-forma for the iPhone 6 with the 4.7″ display.

ğŸŽ Apple Said to Have Enough Sapphire Glass for Production of Both iPhone 6 Models and iWatch in 2014. Apple reportedly will have enough sapphire glass production for both of its iPhone 6 models as well as the iWatch in 2014, based on the latest supply-chain check at the company’s sapphire-glass manufacturing partner GT Advanced done by analyst Matt Margolis at Seeking Alpha.

ğŸŽ As a result of the most recent supply chain, it is believed that the Mesa, Arizona huge sapphire operation facility, should have ample supply for the new iWatch, the 4.7″ iPhone plus the 5.5″ iPhone with full sapphire cover glass in 2014. Additionally, the maximum sapphire screen capacity of the Mesa, AZ facility may exceed 200 million units/year.

ğŸŽ In February, 2014 Margolis estimated that Apple would be gearing up for mass production of devices with sapphire displays, with equipment in the factory leading to a yield of anywhere from 100 to 200 million ~5″ sapphire displays. A yield of over 200 million sapphire displays as indicated by this latest report means that Apple could possibly produce more than enough sapphire displays for the 4.7″ iPhone 6, the 5.5″ iPhone 6 and the iWatch.

ğŸŽ Previous reports indicated that sapphire display supply constraints may force Apple to reserve the scratch resistant material for its larger iPhone models, with expenses perhaps driving up the retail price for consumers. Other reports suggested that initial sapphire production would target the iWatch instead of the iPhone 6, however the reported volume of raw material and equipment purchased would likely hint at bigger plans for sapphire display production.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 is expected to be released later this year, with the 5.5″ iPhone 6 launching near the end of 2014. In addition to a sapphire display, both phones will likely include a thinner profile, a faster A8 processor, and an improved camera. Meanwhile, the iWatch is expected to be revealed at an October event and may launch later that month.

ğŸŽ This Year’s amazing WWDC keynote address was the most significant product introduction since Apple unveiled the original iPad in 2010. But this time, the revolutionary, magical product wasn’t hardware, it was software, iOS8. While the techno-analysts are arguing about display sizes and CPU speed, Apple quietly has been working on those hardware issues;

ğŸŽ However, Apple has been spending considerable effort, tens of thousands of engineering hours, with integrating these iDevices with each other and MACs, so that there operate consistently, and interchangeably. Integrating… even to the extent of you being able to answer a telephone call on your MAC laptop, as it integrates with your iPhone using iOS8 and MAC using its new Yosemite operating system. Apple is integrating household electronics, security systems, locking systems, garage-door openers, thermostats, lighting systems… you imaging it Apple and their 3rd party developers are delivering.

ğŸŽ Imagine, saying to SIRI, I’m ready for Bed, please lock-up the Apartment, set the lighting, the alarms, the thermostat, and awaken me at 7am tomorrow morning.

ğŸŽ We have NEST which is an automation thermostat that learns our heating and cooling desires, operates with our iPads and iPhones, and saves us about 25% on our electricity, as it “knows” when we are Away and when we Arrive, making Climate Control settings for us, after about a week of learning.

ğŸŽ If coming home early, I can open the NEST App on my iPhone, and start cooling the Apartment as its WiFi integrated, secure and accessible from across the street or cross country. Forgot to turn-off the Heat or the A/C, rushing to the Air Port, no problem, one can access NEST from the Airline Terminal telling it that we’ll be AWAY for 5 days. I’ve written a detailed Article on NEST… just search for NEST at the top of this site.

ğŸŽ Reported last week, Apple has engaged over 200 Chinese Security personnel to investigate and prosecute all the “leaks” that have been originating from Apple’s supply-line regarding the new iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ There are “signals” that lead me to deduce that there may be major Apple product Announcements at WWDC, other than, nifty Apps, the new Apple iOS8 operating software, and the latest and greatest for MACs’ operating system.

ğŸŽ Firstly, this is the first year that WWDC 2014 broadcasted via live-streaming at 1pm eastern time on Monday, June 2. Here is the link for a replay of the Keynote Address from the Moscone Center.

https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2014/

The iPhone 6 really won’t be too much of a surprise whenever it’s finally revealed since we’ve been seeing leaks showing us its shape and size for the past several weeks.

Apple may Announce both iPhone 6 and iPhone Air at one Media Event, however the iPhone 6 may be ship a week or two earlier than the iPhone Air.

📲 Apple is BLOCKING out days in September at all its USA retail stores, apparenty in preparation of New Product release(s). Some secrets just cannot be kept, as too many folks, in too many locations trumps iPhone secrecy. As we get closer to the September release Weekend (typically Friday, Saturday, Sunday) we’ll know more, for all those that are Chomping at the Bit for the latest and greatest technology device, self included.

📲 Jim Wilson’s blog is FAU4U2 on WordPress.com. The Blog link is: http://tiny.cc/e7pwfx We’re proud of the growing number of over 54,000 readers, who stay connected regarding Apple’s iOS personal communications devices, accessories, Apps, and other technology topics. FAU4U2 was created several years ago to provide a forum to answer the many questions that many FAU students throw at me 24/7 in this connected world we live in.

📲 My view, when in a classroom setting, whether as 5th grader, or in Graduate school, on Campus, or otherwise, if a few students have questions, there are likely many more students that just don’t ask, too shy, afraid of asking a “stupid question.” No questions are stupid questions. Therefore, when I get a few questions on a similar topic, I’ll likely create a blog-page on FAU4U2 giving a core response with some related information and research, as there may be millions of folks thinking about that topic.

📲 FAU4U2 Statistics: Presently our readership as of 2012/05/28 is 54,000 from over 30 Countries, reading 498 Articles, housed within 74 categories, marked with 324 Topic Tags for a more refined searching result, 816 Shares, and followed by 20 other blogs. A majority of our readers are from the USA, United Kingdom, Denmark, Netherlands, Australia, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, Mexico, Ukraine, Canada, Indonesia, Estonia, and Italy, listed in order of frequency of the articles read.

📲 Presently in the USA, 54% of all American smartphone owners have iPhones, the remaining smartphone users, the 46% smartphone users, are grouped together (the 12 brands and models of Androids, Blackberry, Google, Samsung, HTC, Motorola). Apple’s market-share in North America is growing. Industry experts expect, with the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone Air, Apple’s market share for their iPhones will grow at an accelerated rate.

📲 Apple iPhone “supply-line” chatter is hot and heavy as the next weeks speed forward. Combine this chatter with several layers of (Chinese) Mandarin translation, it becomes difficult to differentiate between “release date” with “announcement date” and availability. Expressed above is the best we could surmise.

📲 Virtually all of the rumors and schematics pertaining to Apple’s next iPhone center on its ultra-thin design and two screen sizes: 4.7″ and 5.5″ however, up until now we’re kept in the dark as to what screen resolution the larger 5.5-incher (the iPhone Air) might have.

📲 Recall none of these figures, dialog, and proforma-images, comes from Apple officially, but from “snitches” in its supply-line. Of course its no surprise that Apple totally ignores all these “news” reports and rumors.

📲 Other than leaked supply-line secrets, punishable by termination and prosecution by Apple, everything displayed and discussed is conjecture. However, since there are such a vast number of enterprises, engineers, and factory workers involved with the fabrication and assembly of the new iPhone models, whispers arriving from several directions that have a common-thread, could lead an observer to deductions as assembled in this article.

📲 iPhone 6 Release Date: Until Announced, Apple is silent. However, its hard to keep this date a secret with over 400 retail stores. These stores are beginning to “Black-Out” vacation days in September, generally a good sign that Apple requires “all hands on deck” for a new Apple product release. In the next few weeks, these retail store employee black-out dates will be fine-tuned.

📲 iPhone Air, according to new reports the 5.5″ iPhone may have a screen resolution of 1,704-by-960 pixels, a marked improvement over the current 4″ display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c.

📲 iPhone Air’s 1,704-by-900 pixel resolution is essentially a tripled of the “base display resolution” of 568-by-320 pixels. Before the iPhone 5, the iPhone 4 introduced the “Retina Display” representing a resolution of 960-by-640 pixels, which itself is a pixel-doubled 480-by-320 resolution found on the non-Retina 3.5″ original iPhone and the iPhone 3G/3Gs.

📲 Industry experts and analysts are anticipating huge release results, now that Apple is finally delivering LARGER display iPhones. Accordingly the prognosticators are also predicting an large influx of Android users that have been waiting to join the Apple EcoSystem, now that the display size issue is being resolved.

📲 Apple’s Retina Display: Apple’s retina display signifies a range of resolutions depending on the distance from ones Eyes the display is viewed. The human Eye is an organic camera system contain an auto-focus lens which focuses the subject light onto a dense-quilt of photo-sensitive living biological “Cone & Rod” cells. This organic array of specialized living cells, “attached” to the back-wall of the interior of one’s Eye is called the Retina.

📲 Ophthalmologists, have determined if one is reading a book, picture, iPad, iPhone about 14″ away from your Eyes, and if the content of the book’s font characters or pictures are comprised of picture-elements, pixels, the human Eye is not capable if distinguishing individual pixels from each other, if they are packed at a density of 300 pixels per inch, 300 ppi. Recall that 300 ppi means that there are 90,000 pixels within each square inch. The current 4″ diagonal display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c has a pixel density of 326 ppi.

📲 I’m a Believer – Apple is reported to have placed their iPhone 6 order for 90 million units! Looks like FOXCON is going to be very, very busy this year. Recall there are over 475,000,000 iPhones in circulation – there will be a huge number of UpGrades this year, plus a Large number of Migrations from Android to iPhone 6.

📲 Q1, 2014 Apple sold just under 50 million iPhones, therefore ordering 90 million units is giving Apple just a head-start for a what the industry and Apple believes will be a huge iphone 6 launch. In looking at the schematics and the prototypes constructed, Personally, I’m upgrading to the iPhone Air.

📲 The iPhone with its Apps transform the smartphone into a valued business tool, scanner, portable fax, communications device, eMail, Text messaging, and of course a Phone. It will be interesting if Logitech develops one of their UltraThin Keyboard Covers for the iPhone Air, as we both have the Logitech keyboard covers for our iPad minis.

ğŸŽ Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, He is in it, to Win It, Period! This intensity and commitment is terrific for Apple product users, as we are all going to receive better products, and great for Apple’s share holders.

ğŸŽ Speaking of Apple Shareholders. At Apple’s recent quarterly Conference Call, Tim Cook announced that it had a record profit Quarter, the company will be forward splitting its sharers 7-for-1, meaning if you presently own 100 AAPL shares, June 9th Apple will be sending you another 600 shares. This brings the present (6/4/2014) share-price of $644/share for example, to about $92/share, making its shares more “affordable” to an expanded audience of smaller investors.

ğŸŽ Take a look at the Graphic of iPhone Sales. Lets focus on the period of Q1+Q2, 2010 to Q1+Q2, 2014, in this 4 year period iPhone sales grew from 16 million iPhones in 6 months to over 100 million in 6 months. Look at the Slope of the Green trend-line.

ğŸŽ The Line is pointed UP, significantly Up. It does not take a PhD in mathematics and statistics to “extrapolate” what the future quarters may look like, if the the past trends have any possible “predictability” for what Apple’s iPhone future sales may be. No one knows for sure, but my Guess is Apple’s iPhone sales will continue to increase. Likely because Apple continues to reinvent the SmartPhone with innovations that people want.

ğŸŽ Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says, Apple is planning to debut two new iPhone models with two distinct screen sizes in 2014, an unprecedented move for Apple that traditionally has shied away from screen size wars. However a very large survey of iPhone owners, over 60% of their installed-base desires larger display sizes. The graphic of an iPhone may depict the ICON Layout for the new iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ Aside from obvious size differences, the top-of-the-line 5.5″ model will sport a high-resolution display of 1,920-by-1,080 pixels, which represents the same resolution as your large Flat-screen HDTV, translates to 401 pixels per inch, (ppi) in the palm of your hand. The 4.7″ iteration will use a 1,334-by-750 pixel-display to maintain scalability with existing iPhone Apps, representing a pixel density of 326 ppi, meeting or exceeding the “Retina” resolution, Apple set several years ago.

ğŸŽ Both handsets will use Apple’s next-generation A8 system-on-chip with 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM, low temperature polysilicon in-cell touch panels and Touch ID fingerprint security.

ğŸŽ Importantly, a near-field communications chip-set (NFC) and a metal casing are also part of the build. An 10-megapixel rear-facing camera with a f/2.0 aperture is expected, though Apple may improve the camera system to include an improved electronic or optical image stabilization to improve low-light performance, an exciting feature new to the smart-phones, taking the “camera shake” for low light “party” photography.

ğŸŽ As to aesthetics, the iPhones’ bezels are said to be 10% to 20% narrower than the current iPhone 5s, while thinness is pegged at 7.0 millimeters. Kuo also says Apple will move the location of the Top of the iPhone’s sleep/wake button to the right-side of the iPhone, to facilitate one-handed operation. This button-relocation may indicate a new feature that requires frequent pressing of the power button for other functions. Good we could actually need one more button, to eliminate too many soft-menus on the display.

ğŸŽ While the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be within Apple’s guidelines of one-handed operation, Kuo believes Apple may position from a product line-up perspective the 5.5″ version as a higher-end iPhone Air (Phablet) perhaps with an additional $100 premium. I’ll go for it.

ğŸŽ Kuo also believes the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be Apple’s main driver of handset sales in late 2014 and full-year shipments could exceed 60 million units. My guess it will be double or triple this estimate.

ğŸŽ The 5.5″ iPhone Air model may cannibalize some of the sales of the iPad mini, but if the company can marginally reduce the price-tag of its iPad mini, its iPad line-up should remain strong.

ğŸŽ IMHO, its better to cannibalize the iPad mini to yourself, than to be cannibalized by the Competitors, by not having the 5.5″ iPhone Phablet, as has happened over the last 18 months. This is probable the only “mistake” IMHO, Apple has encountered recently. However, who am I to say that Apple made a “misstep” when Apple is delivering 200 million iPhones/year currently. But, what’s not to like with another 30 million units sold.

ğŸŽ We may likely see a terrific migration from Android ➡️ Apple this year and next, perhaps at a rate of a 35% shift ➡️ Apple, with these two larger display choices in Apple’s iPhone line-up. Presently, Android users are migrating ➡️ Apple’s way at a rate of over 20% or more.

ğŸŽ Kuo expects both iPhone 6 models to hit store shelves in the 3rd Quarter of 2014, with Apple keeping the iPhone 5s and 5c on board as mid-tier and low-tier offerings. Due to the expanded handset lineup, the iPhone 4S and 4 will reach end-of-life in 2014.

ğŸŽ Details on Apple’s plans for the 2014 iPhone lineup were published on Tuesday by Japanese blog Macotakara. Citing a trusted source, “Apple has designed two larger iPhone models, sporting 4.7″ and 5.5″ displays, which are final candidates for launch in 2014.”

ğŸŽ Apple’s New iPhone 6 is without a doubt one of the most hotly anticipated smartphone launches of 2014. A dozen or so independent reports suggest that the handset will feature a new larger 4.7″ display and a fresh new design that is thinner than ever. The iPhone 6 is also expected to be accompanied by a new iPhone phablet that will include a 5.5″ screen to help attract new business over from the Android camp.

ğŸŽ Another day, another set of iPhone 6 rumors trickles out from the East Asia. According to the latest report, Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 is ready to enter its mass production phase in May, 2014, with 90 Million Units ordered. The timing would align perfectly with a launch in the 3rd Quarter of 2014. This timing is as expected by most of the other industry watchers. Interestingly, this new report suggests that Apple’s second new iPhone for 2014, the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ Display may be in mass-production until later in the 3rd quarter, 2014 which obviously suggests that it won’t debut until sometime later in 2014.

ğŸŽ We encourage Apple to release both iPhone 6 Models, the 4.75″ and the 5.5″ displays simultaneously. There is such a huge expectation that Apple will be coming out with a “Phablet” (a term Apple despises). If Apple delays the iPhone Air, it may significantly erode the launch of iPhone 6, folks waiting to see both devices, so to choose between the two. Personally, I would wait, and would recommend to my friends, to delay updating until both are announced and visualized. It would be better to delay the iPhone 6, so that it is released with the iPhone Air, than to bifurcate Apple’s iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ According to a report relayed by EMSOne, Taiwan-based Industrial and Commercial Times claims that Apple’s manufacturing partners will begin mass-producing the new iPhone 6 in July. With three months of lead time, that certainly could align well with a late September launch that keeps Apple’s fall iPhone launch pattern alive.

ğŸŽ Interestingly, however, the report claims that Apple’s larger iPhone Phablet may not enter mass-production until sometime in September. If accurate, the device may not debut alongside the iPhone 6, but instead perhaps in later 2014 or early 2015. Remember all these remarks are rumors and “deductions” from supply-line insiders.

ğŸŽ Despite the potential late-start for Apple’s iPhone Phablet production, Industrial and Commercial Times claims that both new iPhones will launch sometime in the fourth quarter this year.

ğŸŽ Apple’s new iPhone 6 is expected to feature an entirely new design with a 4.7″ display, a thinner housing and an upgraded processor. The iPhone phablet is expected to sport a similar design with a larger 5.5″ screen.

ğŸŽ If the reports we have been reading, even come close to representing the handsets Apple actually launches in the 3rd quarter of 2014, we may expect APPLE to crush the sales records the Company set in the fall of 2013, when the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C debuted together, Apple’s first announcement of 2-model on the same Day.

ğŸŽ Recall Apple sold 9 Million iPhones on the opening weekend, 50% greater sales than its previous release weekend of 6 million units. Remember about 55% of All American smartphone users are carrying Apple iPhones.

ğŸŽ Total iPhone sales since its beginning in July, 2007 is presently in excess of 475,000,000 units, Add to this 175,000,000 iPads, the total Apple iOS devices in use equates to roughly 650,000,000. Extend this figure to year end, 12/31/2014, Apple could be sitting with 800,000,000 iPhones and iPads in circulation.. sometime in 2015 Apple may be crossing this 1,000,000,000 threshold (yes that’s One-Billion) globally.

ğŸŽ IMHO, this is exactly what the iPhone Market needs, two serious screen sizes to choose between. The choice of either the 4.7″ display or the 5.5″ display will be perfect Selections to choose from, and will certainly silence the Apple critics for not having a choice of displays. Assuming Apple retains the current Model iPhone 5S, with the New Models, The iphone 6 with its 4.7″ display and the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ display.

Apple offering Four iPhones Models, covering a variety of Display Sizes

ğŸŽ iPhone 4S… 3.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… 99¢
ğŸŽ iPhone 5S… 4.0″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $99
ğŸŽ iPhone 6….. 4.7″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $199
ğŸŽ iPhone Air… 5.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $299

ğŸŽ Lets assume for the moment that Macotakara Publication is accurate regarding the two new display sizes. Lets further assume that Jimmy’s subsidized price “quesstimates” will range from 99¢ for the 3.5″ iPhone 4S to $299 for the 5.5″ iPhone Air, as shown above.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 Rumor Round-Up ⬆️ A Really Big Launch in 2014 ⬆️ Initial Supply Order 90 Million Units ⬆️ 2 Display Sizes ⬆️ 4.7″ & 5.5″ Displays ⬆️ 5G WiFi Connectivity ⬆️ 3 New Sensors: Humidity-Temperature-Atmospheric-Pressure ⬆️ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed

ğŸŽ The Graphic Above: Based upon leaked schematics (blue-line graphic below) discovered by Macotakara of the forthcoming 4.7″ and 5.5″ variants of the iPhone 6, Nowherelse teamed up with concept designer extraordinaire Martin Hajek to create what may be the most plausible look (graphic above) at what Jony Ive’s next iPhone design would look like yet,” John Brownlee reports for Cult of Mac.

ğŸŽ “All the proportions here are perfect: although it features a larger profile, a super thin design, and an edge-to-edge display, the design still features a beautiful internal symmetry that seems worthy of Apple,” Brownlee writes. “There are some changes: the edges are curved, more organic, and the volume buttons have been unified into a single rocker, but otherwise, it looks like an evolution of the current iPhone 5s. Which is exactly what the iPhone 6 would look like.” The Graphic below is the “leaked schematic blue-print.”

ğŸŽ The BIG Question is: Will iPhone Up-Graders pay-up $299 for the base model of the 5.5″ iPhone Air; Plus paying an added $100 for each step for 32GB, 64GB, 128GB Memory upgrades.

ğŸŽ What’s Jimmy Think: From my perspective, and knowing how valuable my iPhone is as a communications device, and the added utility of the iPhone, as a business tool, thanks to the 100+ amazing Apps that I use frequently, I may be “pleased” to pay $500, subsidized, for the 5.5″ iPhone Air with 64GB of storage. (The iPhone Air name is also an assumption).

ğŸŽ Lets look at “JimW’s iPhone 5S” Usage, I have about 22.9 GB remaining of the 64GB iPhone. It could be assumed with the iPhone Air’s larger screen, it may double as “my miniature iPad mini” perhaps needing to step-up the onboard storage to 128GB, matching my iPad mini’s capacity. Unfortunately, one cannot upgrade later, so this is “a one-time decision” of paying-up that extra $100 for Twice the storage, going from 64GB to 128GB, assuming this choice is available. Since I have 128GB on my iPad-Mini-Retina, I’d likely keep the storage on both devices uniform.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 should be a Really Big Launch in 2014 with Two Display Sizes, this quinella of iPhones will be Longer and Wider, Diagonal Measure: 4.7″ and 5.5″ Display Sizes ~ 5G WiFi Connectivity ~ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed ~ Three New Sensors measuring ambient Temperature, Humidity and Atmospheric Pressure.

ğŸŽ iPhone reports have it, that the 2 New iPhones may have internal components to measure Temperature, Atmospheric Pressure and Humidity sensors. It will be interesting how Apple’s engineers “shields” these three sensors from the internal ambient-effects of the warm electronics and that of the liON Polymer battery, as the iPhone’s circuitry operates and the battery discharges, which tend to become warm…

ğŸŽ iPhone Release Schedules. Historically, Apple released its original iPhone in June, 2007 with over a million units sold in its opening weekend. The next iPhone iteration, the iPhone 3G was released in July, 2008. (Notice that we’re focusing your attention to the “Major” releases, not the interim “S” releases).

ğŸŽ The next major iPhone release was June, 2010, with its iPhone 4, the date and model Marilyn and I bought our first iPhones. Subsequently, the iPhone 5 was released in September, 2012 with 6 million units sold in its opening weekend. The “September” release month was somewhat “off schedule” from the other June timings. This 90 delay delay, may have occurred due to some quality-control and/or supply-line issues, pushing back the release a few months; Total guesswork on my part.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is upon us reportedly, and interested folks are wondering when will the iPhone 6 be Announced and Released. My guess, Apple may return to the June, 2014 timing schedule, so that Apple has more time for the Sales of this likely “Block Buster” release with its reported larger 4.7″ brilliant display.

ğŸŽ I’ve predicted that Apple may have a 12 million iPhone weekend, with iPhone 6 new Two-Sizes Release. Also reported, Apple placed its initial order for the iPhone 6, ordered 90 million units from their experienced Apple supplier, Foxconn. Now That’s Confidence.

ğŸŽ The secondary questions, will Apple release Two Phones, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone Air on the same Day, similar to the release of iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C in September, 2013.

ğŸŽ These new models are reportedly expected to have similar button shapes for volume and mute as the iPhone 5c, as well as the same rounded back edges. In addition, it was said that the holes on the bottom of the handset for speaker and microphone will also follow the design established by the iPhone 5C.

ğŸŽ In looking at the leaked blue-prints, for the iPhone 6, the rounded edges give an appearance of the iPad mini, but thinner, without the angled-edges of the present iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ The larger 5.5″ model is said to be 7.5 millimeters thick, which would be the same as the iPad Air. This thinness would reportedly may require the rear iSight camera to protrude slightly from the case, much like with the fifth-generation iPod nano. Last year the Apple had to revise its “thinness” from 7.0mm to 7.5mm to avoid the slight protrusion.

ğŸŽ Macotakara, sourced for the story above, has a respectable track record in “predicting” Apple’s future iPhone plans. Last year, Macotakara revealed
(A) the 2013 iPhone lineup would come in a new range of colors, and it was also
(B) the first to claim that the iPhone 5s would feature a dual LED flash for more natural looking photos, and was
(C) the first to state that the new pill-shaped flash module would be accompanied by a
(D) the circular rear-facing microphone located between the flash and the iSight camera lens.

ğŸŽ The anticipated larger iPhone is rumored to be a high-end iPhone 5c, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will continue to have a plastic back, as the iPod nano achieves its colors with anodized aluminum. The new models are apparently a cross between the design of the iPhone 5c and the seventh-generation iPod nano. According to the source, the new larger iPhone won’t be a replacement for the existing iPhone 5c, but will be akin to a higher-end model.

ğŸŽ iPhone 6 is going be a really Big launch this year. Apple will finally offer, its reported, a bigger display to compete with the likes of the Galaxy S5 and other flagship Android phones and phablets.

ğŸŽ It’s not that Apple’s iPhone underperforms in any measure, its strictly that 69% of Existing iPhone Users desire a Larger Display, self included. In anticipation of this huge anticipated demand, Apple has reportedly ordered 90 million iPhone 6 units from Foxconn.

ğŸŽ News is picking up momentum and spreading like a viral disease, as a new report indicates that the iPhone 5C’s sales failure could move-up the Release Date of the iPhone 6, to a date earlier in 2014, than initially anticipated. Of course, only Apple knows, everyone else is guessing, and extrapolating.

ğŸŽ One thing for sure, Apple will release the iPhone 6, when its ready for a huge release. Since Apple’s release of the 5S and 5C simultaneously with a 9 Million release-weekend, Apple will surely be capable of having 15 Million of the iPhone 6 models available for its opening Weekend.

ğŸŽ According to the Australian rendition of the International Business Times, there’s a brand new report that has come fast and furious out of DigiTimes, indicating that there are more than a million iPhone 5C handsets sitting on retail and ISP’s shelves the around the world world, where Apple is having trouble designing a plan to move these units economically for the delivery source and Apple’s balance sheet.

ğŸŽ As noted by IBT… “Some consumers believed iPhone 5C failed to prove that it is a cheap iOS device. But the tables could turn when carriers and retailers drop the existing prices to clear the remaining inventory once the iPhone 6 will be released.”

ğŸŽ The 5C issue (this is a media-invented issue) could spell big trouble for Apple if the iPhone 5C proves to be a hamper in their profit-stride and the “Wall Street Expectations game.” One Duck writes an absurd story and the rest of the Quacks repeat it. (Take a look at an Article I’ve written regarding what I believe is an iPhone 5C success story http://tiny.cc/e5jhdx) However, Apple could “make up for the 5C matter” with very strong quarterly sales by the release of an Exciting iPhone 6, particularly if Apple gets to or Close to a 5″ Display combined with the very successful and popular golden iPhone 5S.

ğŸŽ iPhone is due to be released later this year. The iPhone 6 seemingly will be packed with amazing features that will make it fly-off the shelves.

ğŸŽ Several innovative features are likely to set-up the iPhone 6 as the new Leader in the smartphones market, significantly outperforming (Galaxy’s S5 a similar dud as was Apple’s 5C) along any other releases from its competitors coming out the next few months.

ğŸŽ Since even Samsung being disappointed with the apparent “flop” of the Galaxy S5, this leaves the “Door Wide Open” for Apple to capture a relatively large number of folks ready to migrate from Android.

ğŸŽ Rumors have it that Apple is going for a wider and bigger display for the new iPhone 6. But that’s not the only thing that’s changing. Apple now has a new patent called ‘Systems and Methods for Preventing Light Guide Plate Scratching Artifacts‘ which leads us to believe that the iPhone 6 display technology will be truly innovative.

ğŸŽ Apple has stated that iPhone 6 will probably have “the most gorgeous display rendering ever in a mobile device.” Not only will it look modern and chic but the screen may come with a neat protection layer.

ğŸŽ It looks like the Retina display panel will be replaced with Quantum Dot technology which will come with sharper, crisper colors and improved brightness renditions.

ğŸŽ Knowing how important battery life is, apparently, iPhone 6 will come equipped with a battery that not only will it last longer and give users longer talk-time, but will also feature a source of energy that will replenish its electrical power very quickly.

ğŸŽ There have also been rumors about wireless charging, no need to elaborate on what a great feature would that be and how iPhone 6 would become the public’s favorite. Wireless Charging typically means that the device (the iPhone) would have a flat-thin-coil inside the rear cover.

ğŸŽ If you placed the iPhone onto a charger-platform, alternating current is electro-magnetically transmitted through the rear cover, “exciting” the internal flat-thin-coil. This energy is then converted into DC, direct current, which is managed and stored into the LiON battery. You may recall the Palm-PRE had this capability a decade ago. The charging platform and the iPhone could have internal ceramic magnets to that the iPhone is held in position on the “charger.”

ğŸŽ Wi-Fi signal improvements with the famous 802.11ac (a/k/a 5G WiFi) offering break-neck speed, and longer connectivity range, is rumored to be featured on the new iPhone 6. If this is true, users will be able to download or stream HD films in a matter of seconds even for very large HDTV video movie files. Gigabit speed equates to roughly 250,000,000 bYtes per second.

ğŸŽ In perspective, a typical 8 mega-pixel camera captures that have a file size of 5 Mega bYtes, thats a 5,000,000 byte file size. An iPhone that can transmit or receive data at Gigabit speeds, means that one could upload (or download) 50 full resolution images in ONE second. One one could download a full-length, 2 hour High Definition Movie in about 15 seconds.

ğŸŽ By design, 802.11ac is intended to operate only in the 5 GHz band. This avoids much of the interference at 2.4 GHz, including Bluetooth headsets, microwave ovens, and provides a strong incentive for users to upgrade their mobile devices to be dual band so that the 5 GHz band is more universally usable. This choice also streamlines the IEEE process by avoiding the possibility of contention between 802.11 and 802.15 proponents.

ğŸŽ Asus RT-AC66U 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless, at $189 these new Routers handle 5G. RT-AC66U offers very fast Wi-Fi on the 5GHz frequency band, both with Wireless-N clients and AC clients. In fact it’s the fastest of the few 802.11ac routers currently available on the market. The router also has very good range and its USB ports provide more than just the support for external storage and printers.

ğŸŽ To put Apple’s reported order in perspective, the Apple sold 51 million iPhones during its fiscal quarter ending Dec. 28th, 2013. Apple is anticipating a very large a leap in sales.

ğŸŽ The iPhone 6 may be fitted with a super-strong Sapphire crystal display, a more advanced camera, lens, image stabilization, an f2.0 aperture, and perhaps wireless charging. In addition, there are rumors that the iPhone 6 will feature a faster new A8 chip with a quad-core CPU and graphics.

ğŸŽ According to a Citigroup Global-Markets analyst, cited by the Commercial Times in China, Apple’s smartphone shipments are expected to rise a whopping 23% in 2014, compared to 13% increase in sales last year.

ğŸŽ IMHO if Apple delivers the iPhone 6 with a Display that contains a meaningful increase to 4.75" or 5.0" Apple iPhone will sell in huge numbers.

ğŸŽ Overall, analysts in IDC predict that smartphone growth will slow somewhat in 2014 to 19.3% growth, down from 39.2% growth factor in 2013.

ğŸŽ The reason: average smartphone prices keep dropping, as demand shifts to China. In other words, the iPhone 6 will likely be a huge seller, helping it stay ahead of the industry average in terms of growth and profitability.

ğŸŽ Note that Galaxy S5 was a big flop, disappointing users, investors, and Samsung, as demand for Samsung’s newest offering was not very exciting. If the iPhone goes to a 5" display its Demand will Explode.

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release April, 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, (I sold my iPad 4 to Gazelle.com) applied the proceeds to purchase the "mini" with 128GB of Storage, AT&T connectivity, plus added Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover, and an ACME MADE San Francisco rubberized thin slip-over protective case.

iPhone NEWS BULLETIN ~ Explosion at China Plant may Delay Release Date for iPhone 6 ~ as Reported by the NY Post

1407252246.jpg

ğŸŽ Slated to be released in mid-October, the next generation iPhone 6 debut could be pushed back (but I doubt it) as a result of a dust explosion Saturday at a local Car Hubcap Factory in the city of Kunshan, which killed 75 people and injured 186.

ğŸŽ This tragedy triggered a Chinese nationwide halt in metal polishing plants, over the weekend as the Chinese State Administration of Work Safety sent officials to inspect factories in the local area that also polish metal, including Foxconn. FOXconn is a major factory in Apple’s supply chain, according to TechWeb.

ğŸŽ iPhone NEWS BULLETIN ~ Major Explosion at China Plant may Delay Release Date for iPhone 6 ~ as Reported by the NY Post at 2:38am on Aug 5th, 2014

ğŸŽ The good news is that in the first place FOXconn is a relatively huge Chinese Factory that employs 500,000 just to assemble Apple iPhones and iPads; secondly Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook is a master of fabrication supply-lines, many years for Apple and likewise at Hewlett Packard. Accordingly, Apple has many supply-lines in operation and as back-up to protect its valued products and the release of new products.

ğŸŽ Recall that Apple has 550,000,000 iPhones and 225,000,000 iPads in current circulation. This represents a lot of Displays, Batteries, Buttons, Cases, Processor Boards, etc. The assembly of these devices are not in the hand of any One source. Its been reported that Apple ordered around 90,000,000 iPhone 6 and iPhone Air handsets for its initial order for 2014 sales.

ğŸŽ Apple, for security reasons and for good corporate governance, Apple does NOT permit its destiny to be in the hands of any outsider, much less only ONE assembler or fabricator
ğŸŽ Assembly of Apple products is distributed enterprise-wise, to prevent any product interruptions due to the failure or fumbling of any single Contractor’s receipt of “all the business”
ğŸŽ Assembly of Apple products is also distributed Geography, nationally or internationally, to prevent any product interruptions due to political issues with local governments, war, personnel shortages, worker strikes, talent issues, taxation, currency, etc.

ğŸŽ Back to this Fire/Explosion. The metal body of the popular iPhone is made of an aluminum alloy, which is polished at factories such as Foxconn. However this incident did not occur at FOXconn’s plant. As a chemist, polishing requires the use of abrasives, buffing devices and results in high levels of “dust and debris.” Metallic Dust when mixed with other dust materials Plus Oxygen, can literally be Explosive if there is Not sufficient Ventilation of the work areas.

ğŸŽ Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone 6 and its release date in September. IMHO, being aware of Apple’s corporate culture for safety good corporate governance, Apple will not be delaying the iPhone 6 because Chinese Investigators are examining FOXconn and other plants due to the above reported incident.



Later Headline: Chinese Auto Factory Explosion Leaves 68 Dead ~ as Reported by the NY Post at 5:48am on Aug 5th, 2014

ğŸŽ BEIJING — Sixty-eight people were killed and nearly 200 others injured, most with severe burns, after an explosion Saturday at an automotive parts factory in eastern China that supplies General Motors, officials said. It was China’s most serious industrial disaster since a fire at a poultry plant killed 119 people in June last year.

ğŸŽ Saturday morning’s explosion occurred when more than 200 workers were on the site of the factory, which is in an industrial zone in the city of Kunshan, officials from the city said at a news conference televised by state broadcaster CCTV. Kunshan, in Jiangsu province, is about 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) southeast of Beijing.

ğŸŽ CCTV showed footage shot by residents of large plumes of thick, black smoke rising from the plant. Several firefighting trucks were shown in the factory compound. News websites posted photos showing survivors or those who were killed being lifted onto the back of large trucks, their bodies black, presumably from burns or soot.

ğŸŽ Some survivors were seen sitting on wooden cargo platforms on the road outside the factory or being carried into ambulances, their clothes apparently burned off and their skin exposed.
The explosion occurred at 7:37 a.m. at a workshop in the factory, which polishes wheel hubs. Rescuers pulled out 44 bodies at the site, while 24 other people died at a hospital, officials said. At least 187 people were injured.

ğŸŽ More than 120 of the injured were sent to hospitals in Kunshan and the nearby city of Suzhou. Burn experts from a Shanghai hospital arrived in Kunshan to help, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

ğŸŽ A preliminary investigation showed that the blast was likely a dust explosion, Xinhua said. The factory is operated by the Kunshan Zhongrong Metal Products Company, which according to its website was set up in 1998 and has a registered capital of $8.8 million. Its core business is electroplating aluminum alloy wheel hubs, and it supplies GM and other companies, [however, not Apple] the website said.

ğŸŽ In a statement, GM confirmed that Zhongrong is part of its network of suppliers. “We can confirm Zhongrong is a supplier to GM’s global supplier Dicastal,” the statement said.

Samsung Now Facing disappointing Galaxy 5 sales, coupled with Lower Profit Margins and depressed Global Market Share ~ Meanwhile Apple looks Forward to an Explosive Sales season next Month with its iPhone 6 and iPhone Air, large-display upgrades ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

1406909066.jpg

★ Recent Reports expose a vulnerability in Samsung’s strategy of trying to be “the” mobile-phone company for all the people. The high-end Galaxy S line, the most profitable models for the company, is being squeezed by Apple. Apple will tighten its grip in 40 days or so with its 2 new large-display iPhones hosting 4.7″ and 5.5″ Screens.

★ Apple’s iPhone 6 with its 4.7″ screen and the iPhone 6 Air with its 5.5″ screen… these display sizes TRUMPS one of “the” key selling points that Samsung had, big bright displays. At the other end, the low end, of the price spectrum, which Apple cares very little about, Samsung is getting trounced with several new SmartPhone upstarts in Asia such as Xiaomi Corp. Samsung has not learned that “you cannot be all things to all people” and do so profitably.

★ The big-squeeze is taking a toll on Samsung’s market share, another statistic that Apple cares little about, as well as its bottom line, a financial characteristic that Apple cares a lot about. While Samsung, a Korean company, still has the largest market-share in smartphones, its slice of the smartphone industry slipped to 25% as of June, 2014, from 33% in June, 2013, according to research firm Strategy Analytics.

★ Samsung is Now Facing disappointing Galaxy 5 sales, for its newest flagship smartphone, coupled with lower profit margins and depressed Global Market Share. Recent reports from the Telephone Companies are showing that Apple’s iPhone 5S, almost a year old version is out-selling Samsung’s Galaxy S5 the newly released flagship handset, and Apple’s iPhone 5C is outselling the Galaxy S4. Meanwhile Apple looks forward to an Explosive Sales season commencing next Month (September) with its iPhone 6 and iPhone Air, large-display flagship handsets.

★ Conversely, Apple is constantly being badgered by analysts about market-share; Little do they know that Apple cares very little about the overall market-share statistic, as it is focused on the premium handset market; Apple is totally dis-interested in focusing on market-share, or pumping out the greatest number of units at the expense of quality or profit margins. Samsung apparently is satisfied with significantly reducing profits in exchange for increased market share. Well, this il advised strategy is taking a toll on Samsung’s investors, and their investment banking market-makers.

★ “Samsung continues to face extremely tough competition from Apple at the higher-end of the smartphone market, and from Chinese brands like Huawei at the lower end,” Neil Mawston, executive director of Strategy Analytics.

★ Last year, as sales of Samsung’s lineup of Galaxy smartphones and lower-end models surged around the world, Apple experienced its first profit decline, albeit very small; However, its iPhone models, which are priced more costly than other handsets, lost market share, but surged in profitability. Samsung gleefully rubbed Apple’s nose in the dirt, with its television ads, mocking iPhone users as pathetic fan boys.

★ Unfortunately for Samsung that there are over 550,000,000 iPhone plus another 225,000,000 iPad, that’s 775,000,000 fan boys & girls out there in mobile-handset-land. In perspective in North America as reported by AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile (the big-4 in the USA) for every Million smartphones that are Activated by service prescribers, 540,000 are Apple iPhones, and 260,000 are Galaxy handsets, 200,000 for all other models combined, like HTC, BlackBerry, Motorola.

★ iPhone/Galaxy compared, these figures 54% Apple to 26% Samsung, there is about a Two-to-One margin of unit-sales in favor of Apple. If one looks at Profits generated by SmartPhone sales, Apple achieves about 83% of all profits generated by smartphone sales; the analysts don’t often report on Apple’s Number One position in Market Share profitability. Conversely, what good is selling more units if those sales are not reasonably profitable. Amazon has been selling Kindles for 10% losses for years, and will be soon selling its new Fire Phone for losses too.

★ Part of the tsunami of sales that analysts are projecting for Apple, rests with the dangerous Virus Attacks experienced by 79% of Android users, due to the Fragmentation issues with Android’s Operating system…

★ Today, 2014, the roles have reversed. Samsung literally yesterday, July 30, 2014 posted stagnating sales and its weakest profits since becoming the world’s biggest phone maker in 2012, just a week after Apple released strong financial results driven by record, quarter over quarter jump in iPhone sales, coupled with increased profitability.

★ Recall that Samsung just released their Galaxy 5 model, which apparently is not going very well. Analysts say that the new Galaxy 5 is not much of an improvement over the Galaxy 4. Whereas Apple’s new iPhone 6 is rich with new features, display sizes, coupled with the most significant overhaul of its iOS operating system, where iOS8 has been already release to Apple’s independent development community at Apple’s WWDC 2014 two months ago.

★ The graphic below displays all of Apples iOS beta versions over that last 6 years. iOS8 has been in 4 beta versions over the last 60 days. If iOS8 is to be ready for a September roll-out, Apple’s software team needs to lock-down the iOS8 gold-master in 30 days or so.

Apple may be in Drivers Seat if it Delivers Larger Display which Most Apple Users Desire as Galaxy S5 New Launch has Fallen Flat disappointing Investors and Samsung ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

1393962360.jpg

ğŸŽ The big takeaway from the Mobile World Congress was that hardware innovation has stalled, as Android smartphones are a dime a dozen, and Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is barely be evolutionary.

ğŸŽ All of those tidbits could add up to nice gains for Apple’s iPhone desirability, which may likely include a larger screen or perhaps sizes, later in 2014.

ğŸŽ Samsung Galaxy S5 launch fell flat, a surprise to Samsung, although it may sell a good number of units as loyalists upgrade from their Galaxy S3; However, there’s nothing much to rave about. Samsung’s biggest attraction is its screen size.

ğŸŽ Apple can close the Screen Size gap with the new iPhone 6, later this year, then the game will change dramatically. Korean financial analysts have not said much about the Galaxy S5 is a "telling" statement, as these analysts "gushed" over the S4. If these "Galaxy Cheerleaders" don’t have anything nice to say, they apparently remain very quiet.

ğŸŽ Android’s inability to "shine" has been a recurring theme in the research notes. Qualcomm has received "applause" coming off of MWC, but that’s because the processor maker is the leader and will do well even in a "smartphone market that wow’s no one."

ğŸŽ Android’s ecosystem consternation, for example the operating system’s sizable Fragmentation, is clearly an advantage for Apple. Apple has almost no fragmentation with iOS as over 85% of all iOS users have updated their devices to iOS7. Where only 3% of Android users have updated to their new OS, which was released the same week (7 months ago) as with iOS7’s release.

ğŸŽ In sum, for Apple, the some of the pressure is off for dramatic innovation, except for Screen Size Increase, that Many iPhone users want, include myself.

ğŸŽ Apple "simply" needs to deliver various larger Display sizes (like 4.7" and say 5.5") combined with some of Apple’s magical internal improvements, processing speed, full HDTV screen resolution of 1920x1080p, improve the camera’s low-light capability, improved color rendition, true optical image stabilization, increase the camera’s Lens system to f2.0 from f2.4.

ğŸŽ Apple’s combination of improvements, will likely attract an increased level of Android users over to the iPhone plus launch another iOS upgrade-cycle, iOS8, for its base.

ğŸŽ Currently less than 9% of iPhone users migrate to Android, likely because of the Galaxy’s attractive display size; however, more than 26% of Android users are migrating over to iPhone, according to AT&T, Verizon and other provider’s Activation Statistics that are report in their respective quarterly reports.

ğŸŽ Apple may be in Drivers Seat if it Delivers Larger Display which Most Apple Users Desire as Galaxy S5 New Launch has Fallen Flat disappointing Investors and Samsung. Also, it is well known that Android is subject to a great deal of Virus Attacks because of their operating system Fragmentation among its user-base, because the users are afraid their Android device may Freeze or their Apps will not work with newer OS versions.

ğŸŽ Lets not forget that Apple reinvented the Tablet with its iPad, reinvented the Smartphone with its iPhone, and may reinvent the wristwatch with its iWatch reported to be in development. And may reinvent your Wallet with a New Payment System…

ğŸŽ Word Lens translates written words from one language to another. Point your camera at the words to translate. Touch the bar at the top of the screen to choose a language pair that you desire.

ğŸŽ Tilt your iPhone or iPad so the words that you are reading are aligned, parallel to the top bar. Screen rotation can be locked/unlocked by pressing the button in the lower left.

ğŸŽ Stop and start the video with the pause/play button at the bottom. In the paused mode, you can touch on a word to see the translation list. The translation list will show you similar-looking words along with alternate definitions in case there was difficulty reading the type-font or in translating the word.

ğŸŽ Adjust the word spelling if it helps. You can also see the translation list by clicking the book-icon in the main camera screen on the bottom right. While paused, hold down the eye icon in the bottom left of the main screen to temporarily hide the translation overlay, revealing the plain camera view.

ğŸŽ Use the zoom and flash light buttons (if they are available on your device) to improve your translation quality, if you are reading a menu item in a restaurant, for example. The zoom helps for reading small words up close when the camera has difficulty focusing. In low light conditions, use the flash light button to turn on and off the LED light.

ğŸŽ BTW, Google recently bought the popular iOS and Android visual translation app Word Lens to “incorporate the technology into Google Translate’s broad language coverage” according to a statement on Quest Visual’s website.

iWatch Rumor Round-Up ~ iWearable Connects to iPhone ~ Apple will Deliver a Magical Communications Aid plus Health Monitoring ~ Apple re-Invents the Watch/Band just as Apple re-Invented the SmartPhone and the Tablet ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŒŽğŸŒŽâ°â°ğŸ•™ğŸ•™

1397058610.jpg

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ iWatch Prototypes. Apple’s iWearable Connects to the iPhone. When Will Apple Deliver it? iWatch Prototypes and Rumors are Developing at a Red-Hot pace. Apple will Deliver a Magical Device, that will be transformable, essentially re-Inventing the Watch, just it did to Smartphones with its iPhone, and Tablets with its iPad. In a recent interview, Cook said the entire Wearable computing space is “ripe for exploration” and will be as game-changing and revolutionary as the iPhone or the iPad.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Apple has long been rumored to be delivering an “iWatch” that will focus on health-features and establish Apple as a key player in the “emerging wearables” category. According to a new report from the Chinese Economic Daily, Apple plans to finally launch an iDevice, an iBand sometime in the 3rd quarter of 2014, perhaps simultaneously with the launch of the iPhone 6, makes sense as these two devices will be “connected” with a low-power efficient bluetooth two way link.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ The report, relayed by Digitimes on Tuesday, cites an alleged bill of materials that points to the Q3/2014 launch timeframe. The report also states that Apple will look to ship 65 million units in 2014, which would be remarkable considering the present tepid response existing SmartWatch devices from the big-brands have received thus far.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Apple is Apple, and they have a history of reinventing familiar devices like the Tablet, a lack-luster array in early 2010, until the iPad was released… Blam, 200,000,000 iPads later and a 70% market share, with 4/10/2010 being its birth-day, Tomorrow the iPad is a 4 year old, what a baby! The smart phone market was jammed with 12 different offerings in the 1st Quarter of 2007… then Apple announces the first iPhone, one million units sold in the 1st year. Today there are 475 Million iPhones in circulation, where 55% of all North Americans are carrying iPhones.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ This could be another indication that the new Apple device will actually be a low-cost fitness tracking band or something similar, rather than a smartwatch.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Economic Daily reports that Quanta will be tasked with building the device, while TPK will supply touchscreens for the iWatch and Taiwan-based Richtek will supply some chips. The report also claims that Apple will design the processor that powers the iWatch, and it will outsource production of the chipset to Samsung.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Tim Cook sees the Wearable, the iWatch, as another very significant branch of the connectivity tree. These design-prototypes permit the user to squeeze a Wearable to fit your wrist, as it is built around a flexible high-resolution display. IMHO, Apple’s new iWearable should be a revolution in and of itself. Marilyn who is very fashion conscious, is very interested in the iWearable connectivity to her iPhone…

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Apple’s All-Star Team of Biosensor Engineers is Developing “Something Really Big.” Here are the recent Cast of Characters

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Ravi Narasimhan, Author of numerous papers, joined Apple’s R&D department in December 2013. He knows biosensors, machine learning, systems and computational biology and was previously VP R&D, Biosensor Technology at Vital Connect.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Michael O’Reilly, MD and former chief medical officer of Masimo Corporation, in December participated in a high-level Apple/FDA meeting to discuss “mobile medical applications.”

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Todd Whitehurst, director of hardware development at Apple (since July 2013), former VP of product development at Senseonics and ex-R&D VP at Palyon Medical, has been involved in medical device development since 1999.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Ueyn Block, technical lead/engineering manager in the optical sensing arm of Apple, which he joined alongside other former members of C8 MediSensors in March 2013.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Erno Klaassen, former Senior Director of electrical systems and IC design at St. Jude Medical, joined Apple in February 2013 as Manager, Hardware Architecture.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Nancy Dougherty, Hardware Engineer at Apple since December 2013 was formerly hardware lead at wearable sensor tech firm, Sano Intelligence. She previously worked as Senior Electrical Engineer, device systems, at Proteus Digital Health.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ According to a new report by ComputerWorld, Apple’s all-star team of world’s most proficient biosensor engineers is developing much more than a wearable accessory like iWatch or an iPhone app like Healthbook. “Apple could do something really big”, says the author, adding that the Cupertino tech giant’s competitors are desperate to know what that is.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Last year, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the whole sensor field is going to explode. “It’s already exploding. It’s a little all over the place right now, but with the arc of time, it will become clearer I think”. Tracking the scale and the extent of the investments Apple has recently made in hiring a large army of biosensor experts, the source notes that all this talent sets the scene for “something a little bit more compelling” than an iWatch iPhone accessory or an app.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Everyone and their pet dog (including my 3 Cats) believes these new-hires mean Apple is developing health sensors for future products. But why stop there? How might robust, reliable, low-power ambient biometric sensors be applied as part of future physically controlled user interfaces for wearable devices? Some rumours have suggested that the SmartWatch may sport advanced sensors that measure hydration and glucose levels, heart-rate, arrhythmia, blood-oxygen, while other reports have claimed the wearable device will also focus on other basic health parameters too. One this is for sure, Apple will deliver an amazing “wearable” that will link to the power of the iPhone and new Apps, in ways only the very best “Imagineers” can deliver, IMHO.

iWatch Rumor Round-Up for 2014. iWearable Connects directly to your iPhone with a newly engineered low-power, highly-stable BlueTooth connectivity. Apple will Deliver a Magical transformable Device. Apple will be re-Inventing the Watch, just as Apple re-Invented the SmartPhone with its iPhone, and re-Invented the Tablet with its iPad.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Since it "connects" securely to your iPhone via their Bluetooth capabilities, the iWatch synchronizes with the appropriate Apps that are running in the background on the iPhone: Messages, Time, Date, Next Appointment, Call Screening, Answering calls, Text Messages, eMails, Facebook, Tweets, Pulse, Calorie Count, Miles Walked, Speed, Location, Directions, Arrival Time, Temperature, Stress Level, photo taking.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ iWatch Telephone Call Screening. Imagine the convenience of Rejecting & Silencing an automated sales call without having to dig through your purse or brief-case. Alternatively, you could Tap your iWatch button, to send a desired incomming call to Voice-Mail while in a conference or meeting, and simultaneously send a Text Message: “Sorry I missed your Call, as I’m in a Meeting ~ I will call you in an hour or so.” This automation may be pre-programmed into the synergy formed with your iWatch & iPhone Apps.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Recently with Apple’s “acquisition of several key bio-mechanics, the iWatch may incorporate advanced medical sensor technology and health biosensing, a larger array of “blood chemistry levels” than previously thought “not capable to measure with a wearable” such as Blood Pressure, Blood Gasses, Blood Sugars, Blood Oxygen, pulse and arrhythmia, with an entire array of plotting, graphing, exercise achievements, warning messaging. One can imaging all the nifty Apps that will be developed for the iWatch.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Apple’s next big thing, is it going to be Apple’s first wearable device: iWatch. “Everyone thinks” its coming, but no one has a notion of what or when. We expect that the iWatch will be imaginative, magical and extraordinary, as occurred with the releases of the iPad and iPhone. For Apple the pressure is on as never before. However, Apple has a history of delivering amazing communications and computing tools, that really change lives, and the way we do things.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ My guesses. The iWatch may be released later in 2014, after the new iPhones are released. The new iPhones should be released earlier in the year so that all the New products are not “all jammed up” in the September-December period. This leaves the iWatch release a perfect companion to the iPhone users, and makes for an exciting Holiday Gift in the under $300 price category, of course guessing on the pricing and everything else actually. Imagining Apple product iterations and new Apple products, is an exciting puzzle to play.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ We heard a rumor that a prototype of the iWatch is running on a version of iOS; However, keeping in mind the battery issues this may not seem possible. To be sure, Lithium-Polymer Battery capacity and component energy-efficiency will be Top-Priority for the iWatch development team. The watch may have a pedometer and some bio-sensors to help it compete with amazing fitness gadgets in market like Nike’s FuelBand and the Fitbit.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ iWatch Functions and Price. What will this Trendy iDevice Cost each of us? While we are Rumoring… lets assume that the iWatch will be connected with bluetooth to your iPhone, and will accomplish the following:
1⃣ Display Time, Date, Alarms.
2⃣ Display Location Data and select Weather Data.
3⃣ Display Current Call and a few Missed Telephone Calls.
4⃣ Display Social Media posts.
5⃣ Display Current eMails and Text Messages.
6⃣ Display Next Appointments, scrollable.
7⃣ Display Heart Rates, Calories expended.
8⃣ Display Blood Pressure.
9⃣ Display a Bio-Metric Stress Reading, Distance Walked.
🔠 To be sure Apple will not come out with something “half-baked.”
🔠 iWatch or whatever Apple decides to name it, will undergo an intense level of research, development, and focus grouping.
🔠 Even with some of the fancy-artwork Concept imaging displayed by very creative non-Apple folks, Marilyn and I would wear one of these; however, likely not one that looks like a boring rectangular watch-face box.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Apple CEO Tim Cook said that “amazing new hardware” would be coming out at the end of this year and throughout 2014; but, did he mean new products like an iWatch… or new models of Apple’s existing products (likeiPhone 5s or iPhone 6)…

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Either way, there’s no need to worry if the iWatch doesn’t Shows up soon. Similar rumored devices from Samsung, Google, and Microsoft may show up to cover one’s wrist. iWatch is expected to have Bluetooth connectivity, Siri Maps, Health Monitoring Applications and a flexible 1.75” display Screen.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ We have heard from rumors that the iWatch may be equipped with Essential Things for a device like bluetooth and voice assistant Siri; the idea of having Siri makes sense. If Siri is on board or through the iPhone connectivity, it may be because the iWatch is running an optimized form of actual iOS. Apple is testing 1.75″ displays, which tells us that it may show scrollable user-selected information from your iOS iPhone, rather than simply mirroring the entire iPhone display.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook is excited about wearable devices; however, Cook wasn’t that “keen on the face” saying that Google Glass was limiting its potential based on the fact that it is, essentially, head-mounted, and most people don’t want to wear glasses.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ “I wear glasses because I have to, I can’t see without them, but I don’t know a lot of people that wear them that don’t have to” Cook said. “People who do wear glasses generally want them to be light, unobtrusive, and probably want them to reflect their fashion, their style … from a mainstream point of view this [pointing at his head] is difficult.”

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Forrester’s results sync with an April study by ChangeWave, which said that a full 20% of U.S. consumers were interested in buying an Apple iWatch, self included…. And it fits with a recent trend towards personal fitness monitors such as Jawbone’s Up, the Fitbit, and Nike FuelBand, all of which are worn on the wrist.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ The fashion question, will the ladies that are used to their expensive watches, gold, and diamonds transition to iWearables, and use the other wrist and their neck for the stones and gold.


The Apple Rumor-Mill is as Hot as the SUN.


Fragmentation a Way of Life at Android ~ Android’s KitKat released Sept 3rd, 2013 has only reached 1% of Android devices ~ Apple’s iOS 7 released Sept 18, 2013 has been installed on 74% of all iPhones â­ï¸â­ï¸â­ï¸â­ï¸ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

ğŸŽ Fragmentation a Way of Life at Android ~ Android’s KitKat released Sept 3rd, 2013 has only reached 1% of Android devices ~ Apple’s iOS 7 released Sept 18, 2013 has been installed on 74% of all iPhones.

ğŸŽ Android fragmentation might be on a modest decline, but it’s hard not to notice Android Fragmentation when comparing numbers like these. According to the Web and Analytics Advertising firm Chitika, Apple’s iOS 7 now powers 74.1% of North American iPhones. Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat, on the other hand, is only running on 1.1% of Android devices, according to Google’s developer statistics. Apple this week confirmed these statistics.

ğŸŽ Apple’s iOS 7 powers the vast majority, 74% of Apple’s iPhones. To determine iOS distribution, Chitika looked at literally tens of millions of North American Ad impressions on iOS devices between October 25 and November 18. While it might not be an exact number from Apple, it’s a very good indication statistically of how widespread iOS 7 adoption is throughout North America. Apple’s iOS 7 adoption on the iPad is similarly at 63.8% according to Chitika.

ğŸŽ The Primary reason Apple Users quickly migrate to each New iOS update, for example from iOS6 to iOS7, is the Apple iPhones and iPads ALL work perfectly, with the Operating System and with ALL the APPs. There have been a few isolated “glitches” however, Apple is very quick in resolving the issue, like in a few days. Apple generally issues 4 to 8 Beta versions to 100,000+ engineers in their independent “Developer Community” for testing. Each of these beta versions run for about 10-14 days, during which time, the Developers respond back to Apple’s operating system software engineers, making notice of any issues they discover. Apple then edits the iOS beta code, makes improvements and issues the next beta, for testing by the Developer Community. Notice the Graphic above showing the process in Days and versions dating back to iOS2. Recent versions of Apple’s iOS 5,6,7 require about 100 days of this stepped beta process, before the iOS is released to the general population of Apple’s 550,000,000 or so iPhones and iPads.

ğŸŽ One Asks, Why doesn’t Android software engineers do what Apple does with their iDevices. The short-answer, Android has over 11,800 unique devices in their population of users.

ğŸŽ Apple has, lets count them, iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5s, iPad 2, 3, 4, 5, iPad mini 1 and 2. (Note: iPhone 3, 3Gs and iPad 1 are not supported by iOS7, as the 4yr old devices’ hardware insufficient for proper operation, supported by iOS5.1 or earlier, representing 3.6% of the total iDevices presently in circulation using iOS 3,4,5).

Total number of unique Apple devices with iOS7 support: 10 devices with 550,000,000 in circulation

Total number of unique Android devices with support: 11,800 devices with 850,000,000 in circulation

ğŸŽ These Figures are in stark contrast to Android’s non-Adoption rates. According to Google, KitKat, Android’s newest OS release, released several weeks before Apple’s iOS7 release date, is only running on 1.10% of Android devices. Jelly Bean (versions 4.1 – 4.3) makes up the largest segment of Android users, running on 54.5% of Android devices. What is very surprising, and a little unsettling for App Developers, is Gingerbread. Gingerbread is over two years old at this point, and is still running on 24.1% of the Android phones and tablets out there. There are several reasons why is Gingerbread still in all these Android devices.
(A) The device configurations, memory level , Bus-speed, Processor capacity is capable of running Gingerbread, however will not run with the Newer operating systems that require more speed and capacity
(B) Android device Carriers that operate the older devices using Gingerbread, will not operate properly if the OS is upgraded to a newer OS, causing forced Fragmentation
(C) App Developers designed their Apps to operate on Gingerbread coupled to the device configurations, memory level , Bus-speed, and Processor capacities. Changing the OS will cause many of these APPs to not operate properly or “freeze.”

ğŸŽ FRAGMENTATION. There are many reasons for the Android Fragmentation of OS adoption. Android’s “open architecture” is exciting for “tinkerers” but a huge headache for Android OEM Manufacturers, Cellular Carriers, and APP Developers. At the present time there are over 11,800 unique Android designs, for the 600 million or so Android devices in circulation. Each of these Android designs have differing memory configurations and constraints manufactured, added Carrier software overlays, where each Carrier may have a different Overlay to make its Android devices operate, all which tend to delay the update process, if not shut it down completely. Google pledged to fight Android fragmentation with the release of KitKat, writing the software to support devices with older specs. But Google-Android also isn’t providing an update to its own Galaxy Nexus device, which begins a New level of Fragmentation right from the starting-gate.

ğŸŽ Over 50% of iPhone 5C Buyers migrated from Android smartphones, according to a recent Kantar WorldPanel ComTech report. Elsewhere, in Japan Apple Won 76% of all October, 2013 Smartphone Sales, Kantar Says.

ğŸŽ The iPhone 5c for Apple, the mid-range iOS smartphone is quiet a success for Apple. After all, the iPhone 5C sold 3 Million units in its opening weekend. The iPhone 5S sold 6 Million units that weekend too. The latest figures suggest that Apple’s flagship iPhone 5s is outselling the iPhone 5c by a ratio of 66%:33%. The iPhone 5c has a strategic purpose in Apple’s lineup. The iPhone 5c represents a Huge threat to Android and is a cause for serious concern for Android partners such as HTC, Samsung, and LG.

ğŸŽ Kantar WorldPanel ComTech has released interesting numbers behind sales of the iPhone 5C. According to the research, those who are buying the iPhone 5c have never owned an iPhone. These first-time iPhone buyers are switching from Android to Apple’s iPhone 5C, showing that the 5C’s appeal is to a whole new generation of iOS users. Recall according to Tim Cook the iPhone 5C is a replacement for the iPhone 5.

ğŸŽ The Kantar WorldPanel ComTech report, says that the iPhone 5C buyers
ğŸŽ 50% of the iPhone 5C buyers were Android users, and
ğŸŽ 80% of iPhone 5S owners are upgrading from an iPhone 5, 4S, 4, 3Gs, 3G, 3

ğŸŽ Apple Won 76% of Japan October Smartphone Sales, Kantar Says. Apple sold three of every four smartphones in Japan last month after the country’s largest carrier, NTT Docomo began carrying the iPhone, according to a market researcher. Apple, which released new iPhone 5S and 5C models in September, won 76% of Japanese smartphone sales last month, market researcher Kantar Worldpanel ComTech said yesterday.

ğŸŽ Fragmentation is significant part of the reason that the iPhone is receiving large numbers of Android users. When people talk about Android’s “fragmentation” problem, what they are referring to is the fact that the majority of the 11,800 Android devices are NOT running the most current version of Google’s mobile operating system.

ğŸŽ The reason this is a big deal is because any ecosystem is only as strong as how many devices are running the most Current Version of the operating system; older versions of an operating systems
(A) Androids, old versions are significantly more vulnerable to malicious exploits that have been patched in more recent versions, and
(B) Android Apps running on Old Android Operating Systems can’t make use of newer Android features.

ğŸŽ A new chart released by Fidlee shows exactly how bad Google’s Android fragmentation problem has become. Although iOS 7 runs on almost all Apple iPhones released in the last five years, there are few Android devices that are supported by the most recent version of Android just two years after they are purchased.

ğŸŽ Android Fragmentation Graphic. Hard to believe, but there are currently 11,868 unique Android Devices, each represented by a colored-block representing pieces of Android Operating System Puzzle, that all the Carriers and Smart Phone makers, that exist currently have to deal with. Imagine an App Developer deciding which version of the Android operating system, they should focus their attention on, for their new Amazing App Idea. Then compare this chart with the simple Apple Pie Chart, where 93% of the now 700 million iPhone, iOS users are on iOS6.

ğŸŽ For Android users, watch out you wished for namely, “the open App architecture.” These folks are damned by their own desires; When a new Android OS is made available to them, a super-majority of these users, like 90%, are “fearful of lousing up” their devices, because of possible APP or Hardware conflicts, with the new operating system update. This is also evidenced by the fact that only 10.2% of Android Users are using the current Jelly Bean iOS version, where as over 550 million, over 90% of Apple users, are using the most current iOS6 and iOS 7. These figures are Nov 2013 extrapolations.

ğŸŽ Personally, the last time I felt these adverse technology feelings, was when I was a WINDOWS personal computer user for some 20+ years, 1984 through 2004. I was known to wait a year or more, before I would migrate any of our computers to a new Windows OS. As a former Bank manager, memos when to our IT folks, instructing them not to upgrade to quickly; The theory being, let everyone else be the guinea-pigs suffering with buggy new Windows OS releases. Apparently, Android users are suffering from the similar buggy Hardware and Software upgrade issues, I used to face with Windows. Notice in the graphics below:

59% of Android users remain at Gingerbread, Level 2 of their OS, initially released in January, 2011

29% of Android users remain at Ice Cream Sandwich, Level 4, initially released in January, 2012

10% of Android users are at Jelly Bean, most current version, initially released early July, 2012

ğŸŽ This graphic is regarding Android OS upgrades, a slice thereof to show the release dates more clearly. The complete Android release schedule and percentage of adopters is at the bottom of this writing.

ğŸŽ In 2005, 7 years ago, I gave up on WINDOWS completely, after repeated appeals by my 13 year old son, Daniel; We invested in three APPLE MAC Book Pro laptops, and never looked back, donating 3 of our 4 Widows PS computers to our Church. I retained one Windows PC for the transition. Apple’s OS operating system releases, Mountain Lion, Tiger, whatever, were all very reliable updates; therefor most of the MAC users migrated almost immediately, to take advantage of all the nifty functional, stability, and security improvements their new OS would offer.

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release mid-year 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, I will be changing to it soon with 128GB of Storage and Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover; however, the WiFi only model. My thought is there are so many WiFi zones available these days, investing in the $130 LTE Cellular chipset upgrade is mitigated by my iPhone 5S with its "HOT SPOT" capability. Therefore, if I have migrated into non-WiFi area, or I desire a more Secure Internet Connection, its very easy to Activate my iPhone’s Hot Spot, which serves as a mini-router, accepting up to 5 WiFi enabled devices, for internet connectivity.

PharmacoGenetic Screening: Having been trained in Molecular Biology and BioChemistry, I have an avid interest in PharmacoGenetics and DNA Screening. Patients that have been screened, have a 99% better result when Doctors prescribe FDA medications, taking into account your unique genetic profile.

Last year over 2,200,000 patients taking properly prescribed FDA Approved Drugs, experienced Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR); of those millions 770,000 experienced an avoidable ADR requiring Hospitalization, and 100,000 of those 700,000 patients, the ADRs resulted in fatalities, more than triple the number of Highway deaths in the USA. Genomic DNA Testing done once in one’s Lifetime, will give Physicians valuable information guiding them in prescribed FDA Approved medications taking into account the patients unique genetic profile.

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release April, 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, (I sold my iPad 4 to Gazelle.com) applied the proceeds to purchase the "mini" with 128GB of Storage, AT&T connectivity, plus added Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover, and an ACME MADE San Francisco rubberized thin slip-over protective case.

iWatch Rumor Round-Up ~ iWearable Connects to iPhone ~ Apple will Deliver a Magical Device ~ Apple re-Invents the Watch just as Apple re-Invented the SmartPhone and the Tablet ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŒŽğŸŒŽâ°â°ğŸ•™ğŸ•™

1396662504.jpg

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ iWatch Prototypes. Apple’s iWearable Connects to the iPhone. When Will Apple Deliver it? iWatch Prototypes and Rumors are Developing at a Red-Hot pace. Apple will Deliver a Magical Device, that will be transformable, essentially re-Inventing the Watch, just it did to Smartphones with its iPhone, and Tablets with its iPad. In a recent interview, Cook said the entire Wearable computing space is “ripe for exploration” and will be as game-changing and revolutionary as the iPhone or the iPad.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Tim Cook sees the Wearable, the iWatch, as another very significant branch of the connectivity tree. These design-prototypes permit the user to squeeze a Wearable to fit your wrist, as it is built around a flexible high-resolution display. IMHO, Apple’s new iWearable should be a revolution in and of itself. Marilyn who is very fashion conscious, is very interested in the iWearable connectivity to her iPhone…

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Apple’s All-Star Team of Biosensor Engineers is Developing “Something Really Big.” Here are the recent Cast of Characters

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Ravi Narasimhan, Author of numerous papers, joined Apple’s R&D department in December 2013. He knows biosensors, machine learning, systems and computational biology and was previously VP R&D, Biosensor Technology at Vital Connect.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Michael O’Reilly, MD and former chief medical officer of Masimo Corporation, in December participated in a high-level Apple/FDA meeting to discuss “mobile medical applications.”

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Todd Whitehurst, director of hardware development at Apple (since July 2013), former VP of product development at Senseonics and ex-R&D VP at Palyon Medical, has been involved in medical device development since 1999.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Ueyn Block, technical lead/engineering manager in the optical sensing arm of Apple, which he joined alongside other former members of C8 MediSensors in March 2013.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Erno Klaassen, former Senior Director of electrical systems and IC design at St. Jude Medical, joined Apple in February 2013 as Manager, Hardware Architecture.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Nancy Dougherty, Hardware Engineer at Apple since December 2013 was formerly hardware lead at wearable sensor tech firm, Sano Intelligence. She previously worked as Senior Electrical Engineer, device systems, at Proteus Digital Health.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ According to a new report by ComputerWorld, Apple’s all-star team of world’s most proficient biosensor engineers is developing much more than a wearable accessory like iWatch or an iPhone app like Healthbook. “Apple could do something really big”, says the author, adding that the Cupertino tech giant’s competitors are desperate to know what that is.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Last year, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the whole sensor field is going to explode. “It’s already exploding. It’s a little all over the place right now, but with the arc of time, it will become clearer I think”. Tracking the scale and the extent of the investments Apple has recently made in hiring a large army of biosensor experts, the source notes that all this talent sets the scene for “something a little bit more compelling” than an iWatch iPhone accessory or an app.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Everyone and their pet dog (including my 3 Cats) believes these new-hires mean Apple is developing health sensors for future products. But why stop there? How might robust, reliable, low-power ambient biometric sensors be applied as part of future physically controlled user interfaces for wearable devices? Some rumours have suggested that the SmartWatch may sport advanced sensors that measure hydration and glucose levels, heart-rate, arrhythmia, blood-oxygen, while other reports have claimed the wearable device will also focus on other basic health parameters too. One this is for sure, Apple will deliver an amazing “wearable” that will link to the power of the iPhone and new Apps, in ways only the very best “Imagineers” can deliver, IMHO.

iWatch Rumor Round-Up for 2014. iWearable Connects directly to your iPhone with a newly engineered low-power, highly-stable BlueTooth connectivity. Apple will Deliver a Magical transformable Device. Apple will be re-Inventing the Watch, just as Apple re-Invented the SmartPhone with its iPhone, and re-Invented the Tablet with its iPad.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Since it "connects" securely to your iPhone via their Bluetooth capabilities, the iWatch synchronizes with the appropriate Apps that are running in the background on the iPhone: Messages, Time, Date, Next Appointment, Call Screening, Answering calls, Text Messages, eMails, Facebook, Tweets, Pulse, Calorie Count, Miles Walked, Speed, Location, Directions, Arrival Time, Temperature, Stress Level, photo taking.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ iWatch Telephone Call Screening. Imagine the convenience of Rejecting & Silencing an automated sales call without having to dig through your purse or brief-case. Alternatively, you could Tap your iWatch button, to send a desired incomming call to Voice-Mail while in a conference or meeting, and simultaneously send a Text Message: “Sorry I missed your Call, as I’m in a Meeting ~ I will call you in an hour or so.” This automation may be pre-programmed into the synergy formed with your iWatch & iPhone Apps.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Recently with Apple’s “acquisition of several key bio-mechanics, the iWatch may incorporate advanced medical sensor technology and health biosensing, a larger array of “blood chemistry levels” than previously thought “not capable to measure with a wearable” such as Blood Pressure, Blood Gasses, Blood Sugars, Blood Oxygen, pulse and arrhythmia, with an entire array of plotting, graphing, exercise achievements, warning messaging. One can imaging all the nifty Apps that will be developed for the iWatch.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Apple’s next big thing, is it going to be Apple’s first wearable device: iWatch. “Everyone thinks” its coming, but no one has a notion of what or when. We expect that the iWatch will be imaginative, magical and extraordinary, as occurred with the releases of the iPad and iPhone. For Apple the pressure is on as never before. However, Apple has a history of delivering amazing communications and computing tools, that really change lives, and the way we do things.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ My guesses. The iWatch may be released later in 2014, after the new iPhones are released. The new iPhones should be released earlier in the year so that all the New products are not “all jammed up” in the September-December period. This leaves the iWatch release a perfect companion to the iPhone users, and makes for an exciting Holiday Gift in the under $300 price category, of course guessing on the pricing and everything else actually. Imagining Apple product iterations and new Apple products, is an exciting puzzle to play.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ We heard a rumor that a prototype of the iWatch is running on a version of iOS; However, keeping in mind the battery issues this may not seem possible. To be sure, Lithium-Polymer Battery capacity and component energy-efficiency will be Top-Priority for the iWatch development team. The watch may have a pedometer and some bio-sensors to help it compete with amazing fitness gadgets in market like Nike’s FuelBand and the Fitbit.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ iWatch Functions and Price. What will this Trendy iDevice Cost each of us? While we are Rumoring… lets assume that the iWatch will be connected with bluetooth to your iPhone, and will accomplish the following:
1⃣ Display Time, Date, Alarms.
2⃣ Display Location Data and select Weather Data.
3⃣ Display Current Call and a few Missed Telephone Calls.
4⃣ Display Social Media posts.
5⃣ Display Current eMails and Text Messages.
6⃣ Display Next Appointments, scrollable.
7⃣ Display Heart Rates, Calories expended.
8⃣ Display Blood Pressure.
9⃣ Display a Bio-Metric Stress Reading, Distance Walked.
🔠 To be sure Apple will not come out with something “half-baked.”
🔠 iWatch or whatever Apple decides to name it, will undergo an intense level of research, development, and focus grouping.
🔠 Even with some of the fancy-artwork Concept imaging displayed by very creative non-Apple folks, Marilyn and I would wear one of these; however, likely not one that looks like a boring rectangular watch-face box.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Apple CEO Tim Cook said that “amazing new hardware” would be coming out at the end of this year and throughout 2014; but, did he mean new products like an iWatch… or new models of Apple’s existing products (likeiPhone 5s or iPhone 6)…

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Either way, there’s no need to worry if the iWatch doesn’t Shows up soon. Similar rumored devices from Samsung, Google, and Microsoft may show up to cover one’s wrist. iWatch is expected to have Bluetooth connectivity, Siri Maps, Health Monitoring Applications and a flexible 1.75” display Screen.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ We have heard from rumors that the iWatch may be equipped with Essential Things for a device like bluetooth and voice assistant Siri; the idea of having Siri makes sense. If Siri is on board or through the iPhone connectivity, it may be because the iWatch is running an optimized form of actual iOS. Apple is testing 1.75″ displays, which tells us that it may show scrollable user-selected information from your iOS iPhone, rather than simply mirroring the entire iPhone display.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook is excited about wearable devices; however, Cook wasn’t that “keen on the face” saying that Google Glass was limiting its potential based on the fact that it is, essentially, head-mounted, and most people don’t want to wear glasses.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ “I wear glasses because I have to, I can’t see without them, but I don’t know a lot of people that wear them that don’t have to” Cook said. “People who do wear glasses generally want them to be light, unobtrusive, and probably want them to reflect their fashion, their style … from a mainstream point of view this [pointing at his head] is difficult.”

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ Forrester’s results sync with an April study by ChangeWave, which said that a full 20% of U.S. consumers were interested in buying an Apple iWatch, self included…. And it fits with a recent trend towards personal fitness monitors such as Jawbone’s Up, the Fitbit, and Nike FuelBand, all of which are worn on the wrist.

ğŸ•™ğŸŽğŸ•™ The fashion question, will the ladies that are used to their expensive watches, gold, and diamonds transition to iWearables, and use the other wrist and their neck for the stones and gold.

Global Warming ~ Global Cooling ~ Climate Change ~ Keystone PipeLine ~ Everything You Want to Know But were Afraid to Ask ~ the FACTS no Political Speak 🌐🌐🌐🌐🌐🌐🌐

1399824422.jpg

🌐 The KEYSTONE PipeLine, Global Warming Global Cooling, Climate Change, I discuss everything you ever wanted to know, but were afraid to speak of it or ask questions. Do you want to know what’s going on, however have been intimidated by the partisans, the emotional responses from the politicalization of these issues.

🌐 Truth is, its all about the science. In the mid 1970’s the politicians boasted of Global Cooling, everything will freeze because of the emissions by Big Businesses and their Plants, Factories, and Fossil Fuels. Forty years later, the same groups were scaring the population in 2010 about Global Warming, the melting of the Polar Ice Cap, where we will all drown with the rising Oceans. This “Warming” mantra is being preached for 6 years;

🌐 However, all the deluded salesmen of the junk science known by the politically correct, the “climate change’’ team, who see a near future in which our entire planet turns HOT. No… wait during the polar vortex that hit the country like a really hard cold slap in the face in April, 2014 all 50 of the United States, including Washington, DC, Florida and Hawaii recorded temperatures below freezing. Atlanta and elsewhere in early Spring, were experiencing dramatic blizzard conditions. The Global Warming folks were struggling to defend their “science” in light of what our lying eyes could easily see.

🌐 At one Al Gore’s European Tours, he states the “entire North Polar Ice cap will be gone in five years,’’ Gore, now 65, told a German TV audience in 2008. Wrong. In fact, receding Arctic Ice rebounded between 2010 and 2013, growing by more than 50% into an unbroken patch more than half the size of Europe, greater than what it was 30 years ago, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. Notice the satellite imagery at left.

🌐 Last month near the South Pole, a Russian ship carrying Global Warming Scientists and a few tourists traveled to the bottom of the Earth, the South Pole, so these passengers might document the effects of global warming and the shrinking ice caps. Oooops, the ship got stuck on the very Thick Ice; The Ice was thicker than at any time since such records began being kept.

🌐 The Global Warming folks were airlifted to safety by helicopter, leaving behind a heard of confused penguins. And — whoops! — The “climate scientists” (you know, those PhDs at liberal Universities on Government Grants, that want to have their Grant fundings renewed) finally conceded last year, 2013, that the Earth’s surface-temperature stopped rising in 1997. (Or did the temps take a temporary “pause,’’ as the Global Warmies say, trying to adhear to their absurd talking-points). In fact, the Earth’s climate-cycle will continue its cooling trends for years, globally cooling perhaps into the early 2030’s.

🌐 In looking at the Global Temperatures over the last 100 years, it was warmer in 1940, 41, 42 than in 1980, 81, 82… Do you think there were more Factories, SUV’s, and Fossil Fueled vehicles, 70 years ago than in the 1980’s? NOT!

🌐 President Obama recently (April, 2014) announced another delay with his approval for the construction of Keystone XL, a pipeline that (eventually) will safely transport crude-oil sourced in Canada to our US refineries, even though the US State Department and all the State Governments hosting the pipeline, have given their clearances for Keystone in numerous separate reports and surveys.

🌐 It’s no major insight to say that Obama’s decision was purely about politics. Specifically his desire to placate the “green-interests” still caught up in what liberals call a “global warming” delusion. Its been reported that several “green” WallStreet contributors have pledged $100 million to Democratic Senate Mid-term candidates in effort to help their re-election in November, 2014, in exchange for stopping the pipeline. Wow, if there ever was a reason to not re-elect a candidate, this is it.

🌐 Another case of “Forget what’s best for the Country.” Apparently politics IS More important than the 40,000 jobs that the Keystone Pipeline would create to install, fabricate the Pipes & Valves, plus the efficiency, safety, and speed of piping Oil rather than Trucking Oil and Railing Oil (both higher risk transporting methods) south to the refineries in Louisiana and Texas, regardless of the party who’s bowing to the wishes of the special-interests.

🌐 It may be said that the pipeline should be built. Private businesses should be able to reasonably act, without unnecessary Federal government interference, assuming reasonable measures for public safety are followed. That any presidential administration can block a private commercial project, approved by all the State Legislatures speaks to problems well beyond the delay of the Keystone XL pipeline. This should concern anyone who cares about growth and prosperity, generally the result of economic freedom.

🌐 Let’s mention that the US already contains over 185,000 miles of existing OIL Pipelines, where the Keystone pipeline of some 2000 (new) miles represents a 1.08% increase in the pipeline infrastructure. Let’s not forget that there are about 2,200,000 miles Natural Gas pipelines all over the US providing refined petroleum energy for heating, cooking, automotive, and other industrial uses.

🌐 Do the Math: How does 2000 miles of the new Keystone pipeline measures-up against the existing 2,385,000 miles of petroleum pipelines of crude and refined products: 2000 miles of new pipeline divided by 2.385 million miles of existing infrastructure, equates to an Increase of +0.0838% to the existing US pipelines infrastructure, (Yes, that’s 8 hundredths of One Percent).

🌐 All that said while the politicians and the partisans are arguing for or against the Keystone pipeline
(1) there have been more than 10,000 miles of other US Pipelines constructed, while this is being argued
(2) there’s a lot of mythology and misguided emotion infuriating the pro-Keystone and con-Keystone sides of the debate
(3) Just as the global warming crowd has hurt its credibility with its absurd claims about our developed-world that will soon be “under water” absent a substantial reduction of carbon emissions
(4) likewise the Keystone advocates weaken their case with overdone talk about the wonders of the pipeline.

🌐 Let’s speak of the notion that oil and its byproducts are bad for the earth. Let’s not forget, oil is of the earth, ancient, prehistoric plant and animal remains buried millions of years ago below its surface; so it’s silly to act as though it’s harmful to Earth, as it’s part of Earth.

🌐 As to carbon emissions and their environmental impact… the truth is, human-caused global warming and the supposed perils of it, remain a theory as opposed to fact. To make an environmental case for Keystone of this kind is to lend credence to unproven theories that spread falsehoods.

🌐 I learned years ago, being trained in petroleum-chemistry and fractional-distillation of hydrocarbons, an earthly Volcanic eruption, like Mount St Helens in 1980, Portland Oregon, spewed more toxins in Earth’s atmosphere, than 100 years worth of Human interventions, use of Oil, Gasoline, for industry, automobiles, SUV’s, trucks, aircraft and trains…

🌐 In the early 1970’s the anti-industry folks were screaming of “Global Cooling” where our planet will no longer be capable of growing crops and we’d all starve. Notice the Magazine Covers of that period (1976 and 1977). Sooner or Later the American Public will wakeup and smell the SB these Politicians are spewing.

🌐 Did you ever wonder why many University Doctorates opine to some of these theories of Global Warming in the face of years of very Cold, record setting cold temperatures… the answer rests in a Five letter word: GRANT, as in Government Grants.

🌐 If the government wants a PhD to testify or opine in a petition, confirming the existing talking-point of global warming, the University Faculty members are encouraged to do so, or risk loosing those Grants (like an $80 million government grant to study the life-cycle of a yellow spotted beetle…)

🌐 What’s the Alternative, Trains: Here is what can happen when Oil is transported by Rail: Platts confirmed CSX Corporation’s Train that exploded in Lynchburg, Virginia was carrying sweet crude obtained via hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) in North Dakota’s Bakken Shale basin. CSX CEO Michael Ward has also confirmed this to Bloomberg.

🌐 Sources said the train was carrying Bakken crude from North Dakota and was headed to Plains All American’s terminal in Yorktown,” Platts explained. “The Yorktown facility can unload 130,000 Drums (55 Gallon Drums) of crude and is located on the site of Plains oil product terminal.”

🌐 In January, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration issued a Safety Alert concluding that the Bakken crude is more flammable than heavier oils. Hence the term “bomb trains.” However, any train containing 50 to 100 Tanker-Cars each holding 34,500 gallons of unrefined flammable petrochemicals containing a variety of Toxins, representing 3,450,000 gallons.

🌐 Exxon Valdez oil spill occurred in Prince William Sound, Alaska, on March 24, 1989, when Exxon Valdez, an oil tanker bound for Long Beach, California, struck Prince William Sound’s Bligh Reef at 12:04am local time and spilled roughly 260,000 barrels of crude oil over several days. For reference 260,000 barrels of crude oil equates to 14.3 million gallons. It is considered to be one of the most devastating human-caused environmental disasters.

🌐 Captain Joseph Hazelwood, reported to have been drinking heavily that night, was not at the controls when the ship struck the reef. Investigative reporter Greg Palast stated in 2008, “Forget the drunken skipper fable. As to Captain Joe Hazelwood, he was below decks, sleeping off his bender. At the helm, the third mate never would have collided with Bligh Reef had he looked at his RAYCAS radar. However the RADAR was Not turned on. Sadly the tanker’s radar was broken and disabled for more than a year.

🌐 Think about it, millions of gallons of highly flammable, toxic unrefined petrochemicals running through thousands of miles of rural streets and through major US cities every day, at risk of accident, if one Fool parks a Car or Truck on the RxR track, causing tens of thousands or millions of gallons of Crude poisoning the Air and Aquifer.

🌐 At least 50,000 gallons, probably underestimated as each tank-car holds 34,500 gallons of fuel, of the oil headed to Yorktown are now spilled and burning, according to ABC 13 in Lynchburg. Some of it has spilled into the James River, as previously reported on DeSmogBlog. A maps available on CSX’s website (and in this article) displaying the routes for its crude-by-rail trains offers a clear indication of where the train was headed.

🌐 For the record, a typical US DOT-111 tank car, CTC-111A in Canada, is an unpressurized tank-car used in North America. Tanks built to this specification must be circular in cross section, with elliptical, formed heads set convex outward, requiring a metallic-plate thickness of 7⁄16 inch (11.1 mm) and a maximum capacity of 34,500 US gallons (131,000 liters). Tanks may be constructed of carbon steel, aluminum alloy, high alloy steel or nickel plated steel assembled by fusion welding.

🌐 The Bottom Line: OIL will continue to be imported from Canada, at levels representing about 42% of US total imports every day, Canada being the largest US import source. Presently, Canadian Crude Oil is transported by Truck and Rail through hundreds of rural and urban Cities every day, in route to the major refineries in Louisiana and Texas. The safest way to transport these flammable and toxic materials is by Pipeline.

🌐 Careful evaluation of the Risks of Transportation of Hazardous Materials have been summarized by ROAD, RAILWAY, and PIPELINE. The graphic below shows the Level of Incidents using a common mathematical unit of Billion of Ton-Mile Shipment, a unit standardized by the US Department of Transportation. In sum this study was conducted for a five year period from 2005 through 2009 shows that Toxic Fuels transported by

(A) ROAD Incident Value of 19.95
(B) RAILWAY Incident Value of 2.08
(C) PIPELINE Incident Value of 0.58

🌐 Risks of Transportation of Hazardous Materials have been summarized by ROAD, RAILWAY, and PIPELINE, interpreting the results of the 5 year study ending 2009. Let’s make the comparisons using ROAD highest incident method of transportation. Since transporting toxic, flammable hydrocarbons by Road has the highest incident rate, we will use 19.95 as the value in making comparisons

(A) ROAD Incident Value of 19.95 represents the value used in making comparisons

(B) RAILWAY Incident Value of 2.08 represents 10.4% of the number of ROAD incidents

(C) PIPELINE Incident Value of 0.58 represents 2.9% of the number ROAD incidents

🌐 Risks of Transportation of Hazardous Materials have been summarized by ROAD, RAILWAY, and PIPELINE, interpreting the results of the 5 year study ending 2009. Let’s invert the comparisons using PIPELINE, the lowest incident method of transportation. Since transporting toxic, flammable hydrocarbons by PIPELINE has the Lowest incident rate, lets use 0.58 as the baseline value in making these comparisons

(A) ROAD Incident Value of 19.95 represents 3440% more incidents than PIPELINE incidents

(B) RAILWAY Incident Value of 2.08 represents 359% greater incidents of PIPELINE incidents

(C) PIPELINE Incident Value of 0.58 represents the baseline value used in making comparisons above.

🌐 In sum, one would think that the Environmentalists would be carrying Signs promoting Keystone, by far the Safest method for transporting Crude Oil. Rather than forcing the continued use of substantially higher risk methods of transporting crude to Texas.

🌐 Knowing the Environmentalists would prefer No use of Oil and Gasoline, converting to Solar and Wind is not a realistic immediate alternative. Converting an industrialized civilization away from Oil and Gasoline will take many decades to accomplish. However, in the mean time, lets be as safe as possible in transporting Crude Oil within America.

As a "Health Nut" for Health & Wellness; http://www.Jim.Wilson.Isagenix.com

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release April, 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, (I sold my iPad 4 to Gazelle.com) applied the proceeds to purchase the "mini" with 128GB of Storage, AT&T connectivity, plus added Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover, and an ACME MADE San Francisco rubberized thin slip-over protective case. This thin package actually fits into my trousers pocket.

Canon EF 14-24 f/2.8L exists in prototypes, seen in the field, US Patent Filed, Canon Ready for Production ğŸ˜ŠğŸ˜ŠğŸ˜ŠğŸŒğŸ˜ŽğŸ˜ŽğŸ˜Ž

1386425255.jpg

🔠 Canon EF 14-24 f/2.8L exists in prototypes, and seen in the field, rumors have it… However, Patent Diagrams and Patent filings are not Rumors; Patents are the beginning of a very long path to an actual product release. The Factory folks have to price the Lens Formula, Canon financial analysts have to determine the overall Cost to Deliver, Canon Marketing team determines client need, and suitable retail delivery price. Once these Key steps are assembled, Canon’s Executive team decides IF to proceed, or WHEN to go into production. It is believed that in the scheme of things Canon is at the WHEN segment of the product flow-chart.

🔠 Canon EF 14-24 f/2.8L Rumors are getting Louder and Louder. Since Nikon and Sigma have had this Focal Length formula built into zoom lenses for quite some time, it is Now time for Canon to get with the program. Recent chatter indicates that this lens will likely be a 2014 item, possible announcement early in the year.

🔠 One may ask, and to be sure Canon has asked their field-engineers, is it really necessary to have the wide portion of the zoom go to 14mm. When one mounts an ultra wide zoom, like the 16-35mm f2.8L onto a Full Frame Canon 5D3, when at zooming from 20mm to 16mm, renders an amazing change in perspective. Being able to zoom further to 14mm would be amazing. Today we have to change lenses, placing the 14mm L Prime into action. For HD Video, News, Journalism, 14-24mm zooms will be the “steady Eddy” always mounted lens.

🔠 Is Canon going wider with a New very-high quality ultra-wide “L” zoom lens…That is the Question for 2014. Having learned of the likely existence of an EF 14-24 f/2.8L recently, a lens that a lot of people, Canon SLR users, want to see this formula come to fruition, sooner rather than later.

🔠 In effort to supply some evicence of this design formula blow are actual segments of Canon’s US Patent filing. The Link below the image is a PDF file of the Actual 22 page Patent Filing. Notice that the filing is dated September 15, 2009 indicating that Canon has been contemplating this ultra-wide design for quite a few years. Although one would have to be an experienced US Patent Attorney to understand the writings, the Patent Filing is displayed to demonstrate that this lens formula exists and s owned by Canon for over 4 years.

http://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/pdfs/US7589905.pdf

🔠 Canon is apparently considering going wider with a 14-24 f2.8L formula. There have been a number of 10 year old “L” lens designs that are due for a “refresh” (such as the 100-400mm L zoom and the 28-300mm L zoom, both extremely popular and “long-in-the-tooth”). Coupled these schedule demands with the Tsunami that drastically effected Northern Japan’s industrial areas, Canon has been rearranging their time-tables for their Lens delivery schedules.

🔠 As an owner of Canon’s 16-35mm f2.8L II, which we really appreciate its optical performance; I may have to take a Very Serious Look at a Canon EF 14-24 f/2.8L when it comes to market. Will this be a $2500 item? Canon has a quality 14mm 2.8L Prime lens, which we’ve owned and used; Therefore we know Canon can get to 14mm for FF Digital cameras in very fine fashion. To see an “L” zoom covering this range of 14-24mm would be terrific coupled to our 5D3 for Still and HDTV Video clip-coverage. The Patent Diagrams above make it clear that Canon has the Lens FORMULA for this zoom range with excellent optical performance.

🔠 The EF 14-24 f/2.8L lens would make a terrific supplement to having a Canon EF 24-70 f2.8L Zoom II among others. Personally, because Canon is capable of creating Very High Resolution “L” zoom lenses, I perfer having several high quality “L” Zoom lenses like presently. Notice that we always go for “L” zoom lenses having the desired focal length at the mid-point of the zoom range.

1⃣ Canon 16-35mm f2.8L zoom

2⃣ Canon 24-70mm f2.8L zoom

3⃣ Canon 70-200m f2.8L zoom,

4⃣ Canon 100-400mm IS L Zoom, added for the Sports Shooter.

5⃣ Canon 28-300mm IS f3.5L Zoom, added when changing lenses in the Field is simply not practicle.

6⃣ The alternative to the above 5-lenses displayed, is having many “Prime” Lenses, and potentially too many lens changes for “field work.”

🔠 With 1⃣ + 2⃣ + 3⃣ above, this 3 Zoom Lens-Trifecta, you’d have total focal length coverage from 16-200mm, at a constant aperature of f2.8L, Plus the very popular 100-400 IS L zoom for an incredible focal range. If in the field, one could carry two Canon DSLR Bodies, to give focal length coverage for 90% of the shoot.

7⃣ The alternative to 6⃣ above is a TWO Lens Quinella, 1⃣ + 5⃣ where you’d have total focal length coverage from 16-300mm, both having “L” quality Optics and Build quality and an incredible focal range, giving up only the f2.8 constant aperature feature. This may be THE choice for our shop.

8⃣ The alternative to 7⃣ above is a THREE Lens Kit, 1⃣ + 2⃣ + 4⃣ where you’d have total focal length coverage from 16-300mm, both having “L” quality Optics and Build quality and an incredible focal range, giving up the f2.8 constant aperature feature, and you’d be loosing 29mm of focal-range from 71mm-99mm assuming this not a hot spot for what you capture. Honestly, I’m waiting for Canon to deliver the rumored 2nd “II” version of their hugely popular 100-400mm IS Zoom (I’ve written a separate article on this topic). Its been 12 years since Canon engineered the present version, its time for a modern version with an enhanced IS module, and renewed Optical and Materials implementation.

8⃣ Admittedly, years ago I was a “Prime Lens” purist, having $25,000 with 8 of Canon’s finest “L” Primes . Today with Canon’s 7D, 5D Mark III, or Canon 1DX, with Canon’s finest computer aided design team, capability with Canon’s best optical engineers, combining with very high-tech Canon exclusive Glass Formulations. Canon “L” Zoom Lenses offer incredible high resolution, high light transmittance, and excellent saturation.

✔ We’ve also been told that a Canon EF 12-24 f/2.8L also exists in prototype form and could become a product instead of the EF 14-24 f/2.8L. I can only recall Sigma making such a lens for full frame cameras. Going this wide would certainly put some space between the less costly (assuming based on Canon pricing history) EF 17-40 f/4L $800 and more pricey EF 16-35 f/2.8L II at $1500, likely exceeding say $2200.

✔ We have heard of a possible EF 12-24 f/2.8L, no visible “Patent Applications” though, so take it with a “few pounds of salt.” As the Canon 16-35mm f2.8L has several interations, perhaps its time for a wider, syper-wide “L” lens. However, we do not want to play “Marketing Executive” for Canon. The Patent Diagram of the 14mm “L” Zoom is REAL, the image of the “Canon 14mm zoom Lens” is not necessarily so.

Rumor ID: Canon EF 14-24 f/2.8L .

Rumor Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Viability Rated by Jimmy

Rumor Viability Comment: Patents are Real, the Question is When will an actual product be delivered, recent comments say 2013 is the year for it.


✔ This lines-scetch is a real diagram abstracted from Canon’s Patent Application filing. Therefore we know that Canon has done the engineering of this lens design, and has enough confidence its design and commercialization that it spent the Legal Fees to make the filing. However, many patents don’t result to products delivered. Personally, I would give this lens serious consideration, as its perfect for photojournalish, which is a major portion of our imaging and video coverage.

✔ The image below is a real NIKON lens attached to a Canon Digital camera. These are the images that make Canon crazy; where a Canon Camera owner would couple a Nikon Lens to it with a “cheeter adapter.” Mounting a ZEISS lens onto Canon is “fair game” as ZEISS is well known for delivering amazing image resolution, and where ZEISS is not in the Digital SLR Camera business.

✔ Having personally owned Canon’s 14mm f2.8L prime lens, shown here, notice the extreme convex surface of the outer element. If and when Canon decides to go into Commercial Production for a 14-24mm Ultra-Wide L zoom, one would have to give it serious consideration. My guess Expect an over $2200 price, I stress guess.

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release mid-year 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, I will be changing to it soon with 128GB of Storage and Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover; however, the WiFi only model. My thought is there are so many WiFi zones available these days, investing in the $130 LTE Cellular chipset upgrade is mitigated by my iPhone 5S with its "HOT SPOT" capability. Therefore, if I have migrated into non-WiFi area, or I desire a more Secure Internet Connection, its very easy to Activate my iPhone’s Hot Spot, which serves as a mini-router, accepting up to 5 WiFi enabled devices, for internet connectivity.

Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover for iPad-mini is Maxi Terrific ~ Keyboard has Very Good Keys, Feels Like PC Keyboard ~ Types Like Apple’s Bluetooth Keyboard packed with a $5000 MAC. Transforms your iPad or iPad mini into a ultra-light touch-screen LapTop. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐📍📍📍

✔ Logitech has done for the iPad with its UltraThin Keyboard Cover for the iPad, and now has done the same for the iPad-mini. Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover for iPad-mini is Maxi Terrific. The Keyboard has Very Good Keys, Feels Like. Types Like Apple’s Bluetooth Keyboard packed with their $5000 MAC. Transforms the traditional iPad or iPad mini into a ultra-light touch-screen LapTop.

✔ Logitech’s powerful ceramic magnetic-hinged keyboard also functions as a Cover to protect the iPad’s display. This “accessory” is not a full case, as it does not cover the back of the iPad. The cover, closes over the front-glass display of the iPad. We have been using this terrific iPad accessory and love it in every way… period, no take-aways or complaints whatsoever.

Marilyn and I have personally tested and used all 5 of the most popular iPad Key-Board Covers and Cases, since 2010 . The Logitech’s UltraThin KeyBoard Cover is our Favorite. Period. This is the Case Marilyn and I use every day. The other cases and covers that we used for comparison and testing, have been given away to our kids and relatives.

Logitech’s two-page specification sheet. To view it click onto this link.

http://www.logitech.com/assets/50158/logitech-ultrathin-keyboard-cover-for-ipad-mini.pdf

✔ The other popular Keyboard Cases made by Belkin, the ClamCase, the ClamCase Pro are very good and well built; however, since these are full surround cases, they add a significant amount of “thickness” and weight to the overall iPad. The “magic” of the iPad is its incredibly light and thin footprint. The Logitech UltraThin Keyboard Cover adds only 7.3mm (about 0.29″) to the iPad or iPad mini. The iPad-mini with the Logitech Keyboard cover weighs in at just under 20oz.

✔ When ready for use, simply open the Cover from the iPad’s display, (kept closed with ceramic magnets too) separate the cover from the magnetic-bond from the iPad’s internal ceramic magnets, then slip the iPad into a perfectly engineered groove just above the keyboard’s keys, and voilá, you are ready for some typing and browsing.

✔ Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover for iPad-mini is held securely in place, when the iPad is seated in the keyboard’s groove, there are another set of cerammic-magnets. One can actually pick-up the iPad when properly seated in the UltraThin Keyboard Cover’s groove, and the UltraThin Keyboard Cover may be lifted too. I wouldn’t recommend moving far, but the comment is intended to demonstrate the UltraThin Keyboard Cover’s magnetic force when the iPad is in position for typing, browsing, reading.

✔ As we own the original Logitech UltraThin Keyboard Cover for the iPad, this iPad-mini version is very functional, light, thin, useful, has a battery life of three months of use, assuming several hours per day average usage. The Lithium Polymer (LiOn) battery is charged using the provided USB mini connection cable, which can be inserted into common 5v LiOn cell phone chargers, that have the standard USB female-connector port.

✔ Logitech UltraThin Keyboard Cover has a very acceptable “condensed” keyboard, such a configuration is understandable considering the “mini” format. The actual keys are not “rubberized” as one can find in some competitor’s products. The Keys are firmly attached, and feel quite normal as with typing on a standard MAC bluetooth desktop keyboard, other than the mini-compressed keys configuration. It will take a week or so to get used to it; however, its worth the effort to have such a portable keyboard-cover.

✔ Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover effectively transforms your iPad-mini into an exciting, functional, highly portable, touch-screen “LapTop.” We highly recommend Logitech’s keyboard cover. Available in Black or White, to match your iPad’s color.

Android Hit Big Again by another Major Security Flaw called “Fake ID” ⚠️⚠️⚠️ WARNING a Malicious Malware exposes ALL Android smartphone’s Private Data, Passwords, Everything ⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️

1406650869.jpg

⚠️ A Very Serious Android operating system software problem has been discovered. This vulnerability allows malicious Apps to grab extensive Control over all Android devices without asking for any Permissions at installation.

⚠️ Code named “Fake ID” is a Very Serious Malware Infection that affects virtually Every Android phone sold since 2010.

⚠️ Fake ID, the new Android vulnerability was discovered by renowned Bluebox Security, a San Francisco based enterprise that specializes in identifying Malware (security failures and breaches) that may compromise a users smartphone and the network enterprise community.

⚠️ Bluebox Security calls this newly identified flaw “Code named Fake ID” because it allows Apps with the imbedded malware to pass undetected “fake credentials” through the “open architecture” of Android Operating System, which fails to properly verify the malicious App’s cryptographic digital-signature. Instead, Android’s Operating System grants these rogue Apps all of the access and permissions of whatever the legitimate App requires, that the Fake-ID malware mimics.

⚠️ Android is Hit Again BIG by another Major Security Flaw called “Fake ID” This is a WARNING about a Malicious Malware that exposes ALL Android smartphone’s Private Data, Bank Accounts, Cash, User’s Identification, Calendars, Contacts, Passwords, Everything…

⚠️ This Android operating system Flaw is particularly serious because Google has granted a variety of trusted apps in Android broad permissions. By pretending to be one of these trusted apps, malware can can fool users into thinking that they are installing an App that doesn’t need any special permissions.

⚠️ This Malware then tricks the operating system into giving the malicious App essentially full control of the Android device, with access to the user’s financial data, contacts, passwords, identity, calendar and virtually ALL other private information, including data stored in the Android Google cloud, or other Cloud storage.

⚠️ Google’s (GOOG) Android operating system has a serious security flaw that allows hackers to “impersonate” trusted applications that potentially hijacks your Android smartphone or tablet, according to BlueBox Security discovery.

⚠️ Android Operating System Vulnerability. The issue is the way in which Android OS does Not check, that certain applications are what they say they are, according to Bluebox Security, the company that identified the vulnerability. Hence the catchy name, “Fake ID.”

⚠️ Verifying identity and authorization are two of the most fundamental issues for any online activity. Is someone logging into a bank account the actual owner of that bank account? Is an application what it claims to be? San Francisco-based Bluebox helps companies secure their data on mobile devices. Bluebox’s staff works to research and understand the architecture of mobile operating systems that Bluebox builds onto, says Jeff Forristal, chief technology officer.

⚠️ Each Android Application has its own digital signature, an ID card in essence. Adobe Systems (ADBE), for example, has a specific signature on Android, where all App programs from Adobe have an ID that’s based on that digital-signature. Bluebox Security discovered that when an application flashes an Adobe ID, for example, Android does not check back with Adobe that it’s an authentic digital signature.

⚠️ The Big Problem. This digital-signature verification flaw, means that a “malicious actor” (Malware vulnerability) can create malware based Apps on Adobe’s signature and then infect your system with a malicious Virus. This is not an Adobe problem.

⚠️ The Malware hacker can create a malicious application that impersonates any App, including Google Wallet, or your Bank’s App and then access payment, financial data, including all your available Cash. The same malicious vulnerability applies to Android administrative software present on Android devices, allowing the Bad Guys full control of the entire Android smartphone system.

⚠️ Bluebox Security officials said it disclosed this significant flaw to Google Corporate Headquarters in May, 2014, three months ago. The company’s chief technology officer Jeff Forristal will detail how it was found and how it works in a presentation to be held at the BlackHat USA 2014, a security conference being held in Las Vegas in August 2-7, 2014.

⚠️ Android’s lack of current security is largely due to "Android Operating System Fragmentation" as more than 50% of Android users are using significantly Older OS Versions. Why…

⚠️ Android users are fearful of having their smartphones or their Apps become inoperable, even though these users are Significantly more Vulernable to Viruses, Worms, Trojans, Spyware, and Malicious Malware. Newer versions of Android have become more secure, but the user-base is not updating to the new version.

⚠️ There are over 11,800 different Android hardware devices in operation with unique versions of the Android operating system, today. Android simply cannot keep up with their Operating System vulnerabilities, nor can the Android designers convince their users to upgrade, which would protect many of them.

⚠️ This circumstance causes major issues with App Developers too, as they cannot use the most current OS version, for fear that Older OS versions will not function properly. The Android users are aware of these facts too, and know they are likely trapped with their older version of their Apps.

⚠️ Security Vulernable to Viruses, Worms, Trojans, Spyware, and Malware is Very Serious Business. These days we have more Confidential Identity information, Bank Accounts, Passwords, Emails, Test Messages, than in any other single device.

⚠️ Keeping our personal information safe and secure is extremely important, perhaps even more important than on our PC computers. Reports such as this among other safety concers are likely the reasons that Apple is spending millions of dollars and thousands of hardware-software engineering hours to protect its iPhone customers.

⚠️ Bluebox Security was founded by two industry visionaries, Caleb Sima (CEO) and Adam Ely (COO), with deep security roots and a track record of innovation and execution. Bluebox is headquartered in San Francisco and backed by $27.5 million from Andreessen Horowitz, Tenaya Capital, and Andreas Bechtolsheim.



iPhones Significantly Safer to Virus Attacks according to FBI Reports ~ iOS Prevents Vulnerabilities to Spyware, Malware, Rootkits, Trojans, Worms, and Virus Attacks as Documented by FBI and Homeland Security Reports ğŸ˜ŽğŸ˜ŽğŸ˜ŽğŸ˜ŽğŸ˜ŽğŸ˜Ž

🌐 iPhones Safer to Viruses with only 0.7% (70 of 1,000,000 units) being Infected. The few being infected are because the Owners did not Upgrade their iOS to the Current iOS version.

🌐 Smart Phones are Sophisticated Miniature powerful Computers. Computers need Anti-Virus add-on Software to prevent infections. Not so with Apple, as Virus Protection Algorithms are built directly into their Operating System, iOS7.

🌐 Androids are Very Vulnerable to Attack as 79% (7,900,000 Infections per 10 million units) subject to Spyware, Viruses, Trojans, Worms, Malicious Malware Attacks. Androids are over 100 times more Vulnerable to Malicious Virus Attacks

🌐 Findings according to U.S. Department of Homeland Security and FBI Reports. An abstract of this Report was declassified and displayed below.

🌐 Android smartphones (7,900,000 Infections per 10 million units) significantly more likely (than the iPhone) to be Infected by Spyware, Trojans, Worms, Malware, and Virus Attacks, as Androids have an Astonishing 79% of all SmartPhone Malware attacks.

🌐 Android Phones are More Vulnerable to Virus Attacks, According to U.S. Department of Homeland Security and FBI surveys. According to the DHS and FBI Reports, uncovered by Public Intelligence, the majority of malware targeting mobile operating systems in 2012 was intended directly at Android. Why? Because Android’s OS is more Vulnerable and has significantly less Security Capability.

🌐 iPhones are Significantly Safer (over 100 times more safe than an other Smart Phone) to Spyware, Malware, Trojans, Worms, and Virus Attacks According to FBI and Homeland Security Reports ~ Androids are over 110 times more Vulnerable to Attacks ~ FBI Reports say 79% of Androids are being Infected with Spyware, Viruses, Trojans, Worms, Malware Attacks ~ iPhones less than 1% infection rate ~ Where would You rather be ~ Safe with an iPhone or Vulnerable with an Android.

🌐 Android’s lack of security is due to "Android Operating System Fragmentation" as more than 50% of Android users are using significantly Older OS Versions. Why…

🌐 Android users are fearful of having their smartphones or their Apps become inoperable, even though these users are Significantly more Vulernable to Viruses, Worms, Trojans, Spyware, and Malicious Malware.

This circumstance major issues with App Developers too, as they cannot use the most current OS version, for fear that Older OS versions will not function properly. The Android users are aware of these facts too, and know they are likely trapped with their older version of their Apps.

🌐 Security Vulernable to Viruses, Worms, Trojans, Spyware, and Malware is Very Serious Business.

Keeping our personal information safe and secure is extremely important, perhaps even more important than on our PC computers. Reports such as this among other safety concers are likely the reasons that Apple is spending millions of dollars and thousands of hardware-software engineering hours to protect its iPhone customers.

🌐 According to a survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI and uncovered by Public Intelligence, the majority of malware targeting mobile operating systems in 2012 was intended for Android. Indeed, Android was targeted by an astonishing 79% of all smartphone malware. The following is an excerpt from the Unclassified report from a survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI.

🌐 Android mobile operating system (OS) continues to be a primary target for malware attacks due to its market share and open source architecture.

🌐 Industry reporting indicates 44% of Android users are still using versions 2.3.3 through 2.3.7-known as Gingerbread, which were released in 2011, and have a significant number of security vulnerabilities that are not Fixed without later version updating. The growing use of mobile devices by federal, state, and local authorities makes it more important than ever to keep mobile Operating Systems patched and up-to-date. The following are some known security threats to mobile OS and mitigation steps.

🌐 Android was targeted by an astonishing 79% of all smartphone malware that year far more than any other OS. The agencies found that Apple’s iOS was targeted by only 70 per 1,000,000 units of malware attacks, Windows Phone, BlackBerry and Symbian OS by range between 0.3% to 19% vulnerable.

🌐 In a memo citing the research circulated nationwide to law enforcement, security and emergency personnel, the DHS and FBI note that a significant number of Android users continue to run older versions of the OS that leave them open to a number of security vulnerabilities — something companies with rival operating systems love to point out.

🌐 Recall that over 95% of Apple iOS users, about 550 million of them, have updated to the iOS6, and over 80% of iPhone users have already updated to iOS7 in the last 120 days, where iOS7 contains all the latest Anti-Virus Algorithms, protecting Security Vulernable to Viruses, Worms, Trojans, Spyware, and Malicious Malware. This is largely why Apple’s iOS has experienced less than 1% of such vulnerabilities.

🌐 Behind the Scenes, users are getting the joke that Android smartphones are simply not safe, perhaps the reason that Apple’s iPhone products are receiving Android Defections at the Rate of 26% overall.

🌐 50% of Android users recently upgrading to the iPhone 5C in the last 90 days. Therefore when one decides who should get your Net Smart Phone purchase, Apple apparently is the place to be.

As many of my friends, family and students know, I am an avid iPad adopter since its release mid-year 2010. With Apple’s release of the Retina-Display iPad Mini, I will be changing to it soon with 128GB of Storage and Logitech’s UltraThin Keyboard Cover; however, the WiFi only model. My thought is there are so many WiFi zones available these days, investing in the $130 LTE Cellular chipset upgrade is mitigated by my iPhone 5S with its "HOT SPOT" capability. Therefore, if I have migrated into non-WiFi area, or I desire a more Secure Internet Connection, its very easy to Activate my iPhone’s Hot Spot, which serves as a mini-router, accepting up to 5 WiFi enabled devices, for internet connectivity.

What Apple did for the “smart phone” by reinventing the iPhone; What Apple did for the “tablet” by reinventing the iPad; Is What Apple is doing with the wrist-worn-watch by reinventing the iWatch âŒšï¸ğŸŽ¿ğŸ‚ğŸŠğŸ„ğŸš´ğŸ‡ğŸ”¬

1394577192.jpg

⌚️ Apple is spending Thousands of High-Priced Man Hours, including Fashion Industry executives recently hired for the task of designing the launch of an iWatch later this year.

⌚️ Albeit that Apple protects information about its New Products development, Apple wants the new iWatch to be a wearable that does a lot more than “telling time.” As Tim Cook mentioned at a recent conference, he realizes that the Millennials “find out the time of day” on their SmartPhones.

⌚️ Who needs a watch, when one can glance at their iPhone, and pick-up the time from the AT&T or Verizon Network, whose network-time must be within 1/100 of a Second of “real-time” according to FCC requirements. Therefore, in order for the Millennials or any of us, to be attracted to the iWatch, it needs to do much more than tell us the time of day.

⌚️ Observing the backgrounds of the Senior folks that have been recently added to Apple’s Development teams, the disciplines are concentrated on BioMetrics and Measurement Methods that may be obtained from all kinds of wearables, which may be incorporated into a wrist-band.

⌚️ Pulse, Blood Pressure, Blood Gasses, Glucose Level, Arrhythmia measurements, which data could be measured from the inside of the iWatch band, displayed on the iWatch and passed onto your iPhone for further processing, graphing, and display within special Apps or through the iOS for the User. Display and Health based calculations only scratch the surface of how this would work.

⌚️ Apple met recently with the FDA likely gaining insight as to possible “supervisory” issues that may arise with the use and accuracy of a “biomedical measurement devices.” In Apple’s case, it likely wants to find or define the “red-line in the sand” and Avoid it like quick-sand; Avoid any FDA clearance prerequisites at all costs, as the FDA process if deemed necessary by this Gov Agency would delay any such product release (may add an ObamaCare Medical Device Tax) while the FDA certifies a “Medical Measuring Device.”

⌚️ Government Overreach. In sum, the Apple folks will have to be very careful in NOT claiming any medicinal usefulness, or therapeutic value with the data collected by the iWatch. However, Apple at the same time, will instruct its Engineering teams to do everything possible, to assure the data collected is as Accurate and Useful as possible, without making any medical claims of accuracy or medical usefulness.

⌚️ To know the pain the FDA can impose, ask Dr. David E. Albert MD, a physician, inventor, and entrepreneur who developed AliveCor, his latest invention. The iPhone ECG case-attachment, became a global sensation via a 4-minute YouTube Video (link below) 2-years ago around the date of the Consumer Electronics Show, featured on ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News…

⌚️ The FDA seemingly took a lot longer to Approve Dr. Dave’s iPhone EKG case than Dr. Dave anticipated. To be sure Apple want’s to avoid FDA intervention in the case of the iWatch.

⌚️ Apple’s iWatch: therefore Apple will deliver the most accurate and useful biometrics wearable wrist-band electronic device, that also transports information and alerts communicated from the blue-toothed iPhone, back & forth to the iWatch; however, Apple gets in trouble if it claims Accuracy or Medical Usefulness.

⌚️ What Apple did for the "smart phone" by reinventing the iPhone; What Apple did for the "tablet" by reinventing the iPad; Is What Apple is doing with the wrist-worn-watch by reinventing the iWatch.

⌚️ According to new reports from The New York Times and 9to5Mac iWatch investigation has revealed some of the details surrounding the product, including potential health and fitness features in iOS 8, as well as a meeting with the FDA.

⌚️ Apple executives including Jeff Williams, senior vice president of operations; Bud Tribble, vice president of software technology; Michael O’Reilly, and Tim Powderly met FDA officials in mid December 2013, the Times reports, according to a public FDA calendar entry.

⌚️ The FDA execs that attended the meeting include Jeff Shuren, the director of the Center for Devices and Radiological Health, and Bakul Patel “who drafted the FDA’s mobile medical app guidance and is a staunch advocate for patient safety when it comes to apps and medical gadgets.”

⌚️ While it’s not known what was discussed during the FDA meeting, an unnamed Apple employee familiar with the topic said that Apple’s Bob Mansfield, Senior Executive for technologies, reporting directly to Tim Cook, CEO, is “directly involved” spending all his "time" with the iWatch Project.

⌚️ Apple’s Mansfield has been “heavily involved” with “exploring devices, sensors and technologies within Apple that can monitor people’s health and connect to an iPhone.” Another Apple employee said that former Adobe executive Kevin Lynch who joined Apple last year, is currently working on software for the watch.

⌚️ The iWatch is a massive Apple undertaking that may generate sales in excess of 50 Million Units, at a price that may be in the $200 to $250 price range, delivering over $10 Billion in Sales, surely margined at 38% to 40% profitability. Total guesswork, however attainable.

PharmacoGenetic Screening: Having been trained in Molecular Biology & BioChemist, I have an avid interest in PharmacoGenetics DNA Screening.

Last year 2.2 million patients taking properly prescribed FDA Approved Drugs have experienced Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR); of those millions, 770,000 experienced an avoidable ADR requiring Hospitalization, and 100,000 of those patients the ADRs resulted in fatalities, more than triple the number of Highway deaths in the USA. Genomic DNA Testing done once in your Lifetime, will give Physicians valuable information guiding them in prescribed FDA Approved medications taking into account the patients unique genetic profile.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 Air 20th Rumor Roundup Update 1⃣ Apple is 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day, 9/9/2014 2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone Air in full production in 2 weeks 3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production now 4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone Air model offers 128GB Memory Option 5⃣ Apple’s iPhone 6 Adds Sapphire Display and Altimeter Sensor ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

1406391041.jpg

ğŸŽ Apple to release two New Large-Display iPhones on September, 2014, with an all-new redesigned 4.7" model Plus a Larger Display 5.5" version.

ğŸŽ Both Apple iPhone hand-sets poised to take the high-end smartphone market by storm.

ğŸŽ Today’s report coming from China, suggests the 128GB storage option serves as a significant differentiator between 4.7″ & 5.5″ models.

ğŸŽ Displayed is an image from an Asian “Leaked” announcement brochure showing the two new iPhone 6 models side-by-side, at 4.7″ and 5.5″ display sizes, Both to be released Simultaneously on September 19th, 2014, which matches our prediction made several months ago.

BIG NEWS – iPhone 6 Air 20th Rumor Roundup Update Summery
1⃣ Apple is 45 Days and Counting to Announcement Day, 9/9/2014
2⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone Air in full production in 2 weeks
3⃣ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 in full production now
4⃣ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone Air model offers 128GB Memory Option
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone Air model to have Sapphire Display “glass”
➡️ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone Air model cost $100 more than iPhone 6
5⃣ Apple’s iPhone 6 Adds Temperature and Altimeter Sensors
6⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera Adds Optical Image Stabilization
7⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP imager
8⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have f2.0 Aperture
9⃣ Apple’s iSight Camera to have Full Manual Controls, via iOS8
🔟 Apple’s iSight Video 30fps full HDTV 1920x1080p Stabilized

ğŸŽ This is the “logic” supporting our theory regarding the potential release date of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Air and the simultaneous release of iOS8. The graphic below displays the time required for each of the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested showing iOS2, iOS3, iOS4, iOS5, iOS6, iOS7 and currently in beta, iOS8.

ğŸŽ A user of China’s Weibo microblogging service posted the image above of the alleged iPhone 6 promotional flyer, showing two models of the device; one featuring a 4.7″ screen and the other one with a 5.5″ screen. According to the flyer, both models of the iPhone 6 will be launched in China on September 19th, the date that was reportedly given away by German wireless-network provider Deutsche Telekom in a May inadvertent message to employees, blocking vacation time.

ğŸŽ iOS6 required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was certified by Apple for iOS6’s final release to the public. iOS7 required 7 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS7 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5S and 5C models about 10 months ago, specifically Friday, September 20, 2013.

ğŸŽ Looking at the “beta” versions to be evaluated and tested for iOS6, it required 6 beta versions, consuming a total of 100 days, before it was cleared for its final release to the public. iOS6 was released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 5 Friday, September 19, 2012, however, Media Show to be held 9/9/2014.

ğŸŽ Lets Look at the “beta” versions being evaluated and tested for iOS8. Lets assume (this is analytics part) that the time consumed will likewise be a total of 100 days, before iOS8 cleared for its final release to the public. Since iOS8 will very likely be released simultaneously with Apple’s release of its iPhone 6, lets calculate the future date.

ğŸŽ The bar-graph below shows that as of July 8, 2014 iOS8 is 40 days in beta testing. Assuming 100 days for completion of iOS8, then using my trusty iPhone’s math App emulating the HP 19B-II calculator, the final version of iOS8 will be loaded into iPhone 6 devices on or before Tuesday 09/02/2014.

ğŸŽ Therefore Friday, September 19, 2012 looks like a reasonable Date for the release of Apple’s iPhone 6 with iOS8 properly pre-loaded into the iPhone with its new Look, Feel, Features, Functions and Cyber Security protection.

July 8, 2014

http://tiny.cc/eyaqix

ğŸŽ Apple released iOS8 beta3 for iPhone and iPad to the developers today, 8/July/2014. This 3rd beta for Apple’s upcoming major software update to iOS8, comes three weeks after the release of beta 2. The iOS8 beta3 has a build number 12a4318c, and may be downloaded from the iOS Dev Center (if you’re a registered developer) and have a compatible iOS device. Learn more about iOS8 beta3 and the links to download it from iOS Dev Center with your registered App Developer account.

ğŸŽ What’s with all the Beta versions for iOS8. The Operating System (the OS) for the iPhone and iPad defines how the device operates and communicates with all the electronic components from a “Machine Language” point of view. The OS is the interface between the App developers applications and the iPhone’s and the iPad’s hardware components. The OS also contains all the newest and most effective Malware, Spyware, anti-Virus algorithms to protect and secure your private and confidential information housed within iPhones and iPads.

ğŸŽ Apple’s software engineers invest hundreds of thousands of hours, literally years, in creating the iOS. Then Apple releases iOS8 beta1 to the development community. For iOS8, iOS7, iOS6, the whole number OS versions, the beta version is released to at the WWDC Conferences held annually in mid-year. This year WWDC 2014 commenced June 2, 2014.

ğŸŽ WWDC attendees, App Developers, a thousand of Apple’s best Engineers, plus other highly respected software engineers, many of which test the features and operability of iOS8. For several weeks these App developers and Apple’s software engineers communicate back-and-forth with information on iOS8 beta1’s operability.

ğŸŽ Apple then STOPS the beta-testing of iOS8 beta1, employs the fixes & improvements identified, then publishes iOS8 beta2 for the Development Community to again examine and test. This multi-segmented beta-testing process may require 100-120 days, and may continue for 6, 7, or 8 beta versions, whatever number of beta-versions are necessary, until Apple is “satisfied” with iOS8’s performance, features, and operability. Only then will Apple release iOS8, the finished version, to the Public, and pre-install the OS8 into the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Air, and subsequent iDevices.

ğŸŽ In the event Apple, the Development community or the Pubic quickly discover iOS issues or glitches, Apple will employ the fixes and release iOS 8.0.2 for example, addressing the software-bugs. iPhones and iPads are very complex, sophisticated communications and computational hand-held devices, that utilize extremely advanced software to operate. And so this process of Apple hardware development and iOS development, leap-frog upon itself, year after year, in effort to provide to all of us iPhones and iPads, that change our lives, and the way we all communicate with each other globally.

ğŸŽ Apple created/acquired a huge Sapphire plant so that it could place razor-thin super-hard covers over their iPhones and the future iWatches. Recall that the only material harder than Sapphire is Diamond, next in line of hardness is way down the line. Imagine having a sapphire display cover on your iPhone. No More Screen “Protectors” ruining the beautiful display in exchange for preventing a scratch… Those days are OVER soon.

ğŸŽ Know this about Apple… Apple detests the notion of iPhone users covering their beautifully designed iPhones, which it so carefully crafted from the very finest materials, is just like “Grandma” covering her beautiful furniture with “plastic” to preserve the fine fabrics. Hopefully sapphire puts iPhone users concern for display-scratches to rest forever.

ğŸŽ My Personal Sapphire Experience. I’ve been wearing a quality RADO watch a several thousand dollar beauty, which has a convex sapphire crystal cover, that after 10 years of continuous use, has not any marks whatsoever… Take a look at this brief video clip showing the resiliency of a paper-thin sapphire display cover. http://youtu.be/5R0_FJ4r73s

ğŸŽ It’s highly likely that mobile power users will see the Larger Display model, plus 128GB Internal Storage capacity, plus Optical Image Stabilization, would all serve as a more capable, multi-use, overall appealing device.

ğŸŽ Reports, leaks, and speculation about the next-generation iPhone are popping out thick and fast now. In the last 24-hours we’ve heard that Apple will be differentiating specifications between the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 models.

1⃣ iPhone 6 large-display 5.5″ model will incorporate InvenSense Optical Image Stabilization technology, but not in the 4.7″ model iPhone 6. We’ve also heard rumors suggesting that both iPhone 6 models will have 32GB and 64GB storge capabilities, suggesting that the entry-level 16GB storage choice may increased to 32GB.

2⃣ Chinese report is now citing sources that suggests that the larger 5.5″ model will make iPhone history by being the first model to offer a 128GB internal storage option.

3⃣ Optical Image Stabilization to be offered on the iPhone 6 5.5″ model.

4⃣ The introduction of two devices with differing display sizes is quite unique too. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Apple is planning on offering a larger disply device. However, the question is, how will Apple differentiate between the two hand-sets in terms of functionality, and prehaps price too.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 is Slated for 20 Million Units Sold in 2014 plus more than Three Times this figure for the new 4.7″ iPhone 6 version.

ğŸŽ Best Guess, New iPhone 6 may be Announced at Apple’s special Presentation Meeting of iPhone 6 held in San Francisco, California, Tuesday, September 9th, Announcing the iPhone 6, its features, and the iPhone 6 Release Date of Friday, September 19th. Invitations likely sent to the Media Tuesday, September 2.

ğŸŽ Here is the Round-up of the most recent rumors out there in cyberspace, from the most reliable supply-line overseas sources. Recall that rumors are not facts.

ğŸŽ Apple believes in Surprises. Apple does Not “Leak” Anything. However, many times “leaks” derived from staff at the components-supply-line, have proven to be more “accurate” than undocumented cyber-chatter. These are the Most Likely specifications of the iPhone 6:

ğŸŽ iPhone released with 2 display choices 4.7″ and 5.5″
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to be 7mm thin
ğŸŽ iPhone models, both to have A8 Processor, faster more comprehensive functions
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 1704×960 pixel dimension, 1.636 Megapixels
ğŸŽ iPhone displays to have 356 dpi for 5″ display or 416 dpi for 4.7″ display
ğŸŽ iPhone to contain new Altimeter/Pressure sensor

ğŸŽ iSight Camera to have new SONY 13MP Imager, up from 8MP
ğŸŽ iSight Camera with f2.0 Aperture, up from f2.2
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved image Stabilization
ğŸŽ iSight Cameras to have improved ultra-low-light performance
ğŸŽ iSight Video delivers 30fps with full 1920x1080p stabilized resolution

ğŸŽ Notice the graphic below displaying an abstract of the beta-iOS8 Code provided to the Developers at WWDC, which “signals” a new hardware component, an Atmospheric Barometric Pressure sensor, that does not presently exist in any of Apple’s existing iPhone or iPad devices.

ğŸŽ Typically we see new iPhone releases arriving early enough, so that the opening weekend sales occur during Apple’s 4th quarter of their fiscal year. Recall that Apple sold more than 5 million iPhone 5 units in 2012 in the opening weekend; then iPhone sales topped 9 million with the joint-release of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in 2013.

ğŸŽ September, 2014 seems to be a relatively good guess for the iPhone 6 release, likely a combined release of the 4.7″ and 5.5″ versions, which would compare to the previous combined release in 2013. Here is a summary of the recent rumors on this topic
ğŸŽ iNew iPhone launch as early as September – Nikkei
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in August or September – Steve Milunovich UBS via Barrons
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in the fall – Andy Hargreaves at Pacific Crest via Business Insider
ğŸŽ New iPhone scheduled for third quarter 2014 – ZDNet Korea
ğŸŽ New iPhone launch in September – Ming-Chi Kuo via MacRumors
ğŸŽ New iPhone 6 in September – iFun
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in August or September – Economic Daily News
ğŸŽ iPhone 6 launch in September – Industrial Commercial Times
ğŸŽ iOS 8 new operating system release-date which was confirmed at the WWDC 2014 Conference for the fall, 2014
ğŸŽ New iOS software previously has been accompanied with the release of new iPhone hardware iterations.

ğŸŽ Apple typically employs staggered-Country release dates. Major markets like the United States are typically at the front while smaller markets usually lag behind by several weeks and occasionally several months.

ğŸŽ The Headline image shows the relative sizes of the existing iPhone 5 with its 4″ display, shown with the new 4.7″ iPhone 6, and the new iPhone Air with it 5.5″ display. Therefore, by mid-September upgrading iPhone users moving up from the iPhone 4 and 5, and many Android folks, that have been waiting for Apple to deliver larger displays, will have three display sizes to pick from, all having finger-print security, great camera systems, huge inventory of Apps, plus the marvelous Apple ecosystem.

ğŸŽ The combination of factors
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 4
ğŸŽ Apple users Upgrading from iPhone 5
ğŸŽ Apple receiving Migration from Android due to iPhone’s Large Display offerings
ğŸŽ Apple will receive a “Tsunami of Sales” to the iPhone 6 in 2014 and 2015!

ğŸŽ Apple kept its cards close to its chest about the forthcoming iPhone 6 at this week’s WWDC keynote address; however, new information has arrived from China, suggesting that Apple has solved the battery issues that reportedly plagued production of its expected 5.5″ iPhone 6. Therefore Apple is on course to ship 20 millions of the iPhone Air handsets in 2014.

ğŸŽ BIG NEWS – Its 90 Days and Counting, Apple’s 5.5″ iPhone 6 version is Slated for 20 Million Units to Sell plus 4.7″ iPhone 6 to Sell 70 Million in 2014, Plus over 200 Million iPhones to Sell in 2015. This brings the total number of iOS iPhones and iPads to

ğŸŽ 90 Million iPhones to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 200 Million iPhones to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 30 Million iPads to sell in 2014 plus
ğŸŽ 60 Million iPads to sell in 2015 plus
ğŸŽ 475 Million iPhones and iPads sold as of June, 2014 equals
ğŸŽ 855 Million iPhones and iPads in Service Everywhere

ğŸŽ The news states that Apple is partnering with the China-based Sunwoda Electronics to manufacture batteries for all of these devices, where the battery costs roughly $6.40 each. Apple’s regular battery supplier, Dynapack, will also help fill the battery order.

ğŸŽ While both iPhone 6 variations are expected to ship at the same release-date, it is likely that you may have an easier time finding a 4.7″ iPhone 6 than with the 5.5″ big brother.

ğŸŽ Apple is reportedly planning to manufacture 80 million iPhone 6 handsets for 2014, meaning that the larger “phablet” may be significantly outnumbered by the 4.7″ model by a factor of 4:1. This exclusivity (combined with the larger size of the device) likely suggests that the iPhone Air may come at a higher price point, say a $100 premium. I’ll Take TWO please.

ğŸŽ The Images above and below are all the iPhone Models from the initial iPhone in 2007, to the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and the pro-forma for the iPhone 6 with the 4.7″ display.

ğŸŽ Apple Said to Have Enough Sapphire Glass for Production of Both iPhone 6 Models and iWatch in 2014. Apple reportedly will have enough sapphire glass production for both of its iPhone 6 models as well as the iWatch in 2014, based on the latest supply-chain check at the company’s sapphire-glass manufacturing partner GT Advanced done by analyst Matt Margolis at Seeking Alpha.

ğŸŽ As a result of the most recent supply chain, it is believed that the Mesa, Arizona huge sapphire operation facility, should have ample supply for the new iWatch, the 4.7″ iPhone plus the 5.5″ iPhone with full sapphire cover glass in 2014. Additionally, the maximum sapphire screen capacity of the Mesa, AZ facility may exceed 200 million units/year.

ğŸŽ In February, 2014 Margolis estimated that Apple would be gearing up for mass production of devices with sapphire displays, with equipment in the factory leading to a yield of anywhere from 100 to 200 million ~5″ sapphire displays. A yield of over 200 million sapphire displays as indicated by this latest report means that Apple could possibly produce more than enough sapphire displays for the 4.7″ iPhone 6, the 5.5″ iPhone 6 and the iWatch.

ğŸŽ Previous reports indicated that sapphire display supply constraints may force Apple to reserve the scratch resistant material for its larger iPhone models, with expenses perhaps driving up the retail price for consumers. Other reports suggested that initial sapphire production would target the iWatch instead of the iPhone 6, however the reported volume of raw material and equipment purchased would likely hint at bigger plans for sapphire display production.

ğŸŽ Apple’s 4.7″ iPhone 6 is expected to be released later this year, with the 5.5″ iPhone 6 launching near the end of 2014. In addition to a sapphire display, both phones will likely include a thinner profile, a faster A8 processor, and an improved camera. Meanwhile, the iWatch is expected to be revealed at an October event and may launch later that month.

ğŸŽ This Year’s amazing WWDC keynote address was the most significant product introduction since Apple unveiled the original iPad in 2010. But this time, the revolutionary, magical product wasn’t hardware, it was software, iOS8. While the techno-analysts are arguing about display sizes and CPU speed, Apple quietly has been working on those hardware issues;

ğŸŽ However, Apple has been spending considerable effort, tens of thousands of engineering hours, with integrating these iDevices with each other and MACs, so that there operate consistently, and interchangeably. Integrating… even to the extent of you being able to answer a telephone call on your MAC laptop, as it integrates with your iPhone using iOS8 and MAC using its new Yosemite operating system. Apple is integrating household electronics, security systems, locking systems, garage-door openers, thermostats, lighting systems… you imaging it Apple and their 3rd party developers are delivering.

ğŸŽ Imagine, saying to SIRI, I’m ready for Bed, please lock-up the Apartment, set the lighting, the alarms, the thermostat, and awaken me at 7am tomorrow morning.

ğŸŽ We have NEST which is an automation thermostat that learns our heating and cooling desires, operates with our iPads and iPhones, and saves us about 25% on our electricity, as it “knows” when we are Away and when we Arrive, making Climate Control settings for us, after about a week of learning.

ğŸŽ If coming home early, I can open the NEST App on my iPhone, and start cooling the Apartment as its WiFi integrated, secure and accessible from across the street or cross country. Forgot to turn-off the Heat or the A/C, rushing to the Air Port, no problem, one can access NEST from the Airline Terminal telling it that we’ll be AWAY for 5 days. I’ve written a detailed Article on NEST… just search for NEST at the top of this site.

ğŸŽ Reported last week, Apple has engaged over 200 Chinese Security personnel to investigate and prosecute all the “leaks” that have been originating from Apple’s supply-line regarding the new iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ There are “signals” that lead me to deduce that there may be major Apple product Announcements at WWDC, other than, nifty Apps, the new Apple iOS8 operating software, and the latest and greatest for MACs’ operating system.

ğŸŽ Firstly, this is the first year that WWDC 2014 broadcasted via live-streaming at 1pm eastern time on Monday, June 2. Here is the link for a replay of the Keynote Address from the Moscone Center.

https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2014/

The iPhone 6 really won’t be too much of a surprise whenever it’s finally revealed since we’ve been seeing leaks showing us its shape and size for the past several weeks.

Apple may Announce both iPhone 6 and iPhone Air at one Media Event, however the iPhone 6 may be ship a week or two earlier than the iPhone Air.

📲 Apple is BLOCKING out days in September at all its USA retail stores, apparenty in preparation of New Product release(s). Some secrets just cannot be kept, as too many folks, in too many locations trumps iPhone secrecy. As we get closer to the September release Weekend (typically Friday, Saturday, Sunday) we’ll know more, for all those that are Chomping at the Bit for the latest and greatest technology device, self included.

📲 Jim Wilson’s blog is FAU4U2 on WordPress.com. The Blog link is: http://tiny.cc/e7pwfx We’re proud of the growing number of over 54,000 readers, who stay connected regarding Apple’s iOS personal communications devices, accessories, Apps, and other technology topics. FAU4U2 was created several years ago to provide a forum to answer the many questions that many FAU students throw at me 24/7 in this connected world we live in.

📲 My view, when in a classroom setting, whether as 5th grader, or in Graduate school, on Campus, or otherwise, if a few students have questions, there are likely many more students that just don’t ask, too shy, afraid of asking a “stupid question.” No questions are stupid questions. Therefore, when I get a few questions on a similar topic, I’ll likely create a blog-page on FAU4U2 giving a core response with some related information and research, as there may be millions of folks thinking about that topic.

📲 FAU4U2 Statistics: Presently our readership as of 2012/05/28 is 54,000 from over 30 Countries, reading 498 Articles, housed within 74 categories, marked with 324 Topic Tags for a more refined searching result, 816 Shares, and followed by 20 other blogs. A majority of our readers are from the USA, United Kingdom, Denmark, Netherlands, Australia, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, Mexico, Ukraine, Canada, Indonesia, Estonia, and Italy, listed in order of frequency of the articles read.

📲 Presently in the USA, 54% of all American smartphone owners have iPhones, the remaining smartphone users, the 46% smartphone users, are grouped together (the 12 brands and models of Androids, Blackberry, Google, Samsung, HTC, Motorola). Apple’s market-share in North America is growing. Industry experts expect, with the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone Air, Apple’s market share for their iPhones will grow at an accelerated rate.

📲 Apple iPhone “supply-line” chatter is hot and heavy as the next weeks speed forward. Combine this chatter with several layers of (Chinese) Mandarin translation, it becomes difficult to differentiate between “release date” with “announcement date” and availability. Expressed above is the best we could surmise.

📲 Virtually all of the rumors and schematics pertaining to Apple’s next iPhone center on its ultra-thin design and two screen sizes: 4.7″ and 5.5″ however, up until now we’re kept in the dark as to what screen resolution the larger 5.5-incher (the iPhone Air) might have.

📲 Recall none of these figures, dialog, and proforma-images, comes from Apple officially, but from “snitches” in its supply-line. Of course its no surprise that Apple totally ignores all these “news” reports and rumors.

📲 Other than leaked supply-line secrets, punishable by termination and prosecution by Apple, everything displayed and discussed is conjecture. However, since there are such a vast number of enterprises, engineers, and factory workers involved with the fabrication and assembly of the new iPhone models, whispers arriving from several directions that have a common-thread, could lead an observer to deductions as assembled in this article.

📲 iPhone 6 Release Date: Until Announced, Apple is silent. However, its hard to keep this date a secret with over 400 retail stores. These stores are beginning to “Black-Out” vacation days in September, generally a good sign that Apple requires “all hands on deck” for a new Apple product release. In the next few weeks, these retail store employee black-out dates will be fine-tuned.

📲 iPhone Air, according to new reports the 5.5″ iPhone may have a screen resolution of 1,704-by-960 pixels, a marked improvement over the current 4″ display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c.

📲 iPhone Air’s 1,704-by-900 pixel resolution is essentially a tripled of the “base display resolution” of 568-by-320 pixels. Before the iPhone 5, the iPhone 4 introduced the “Retina Display” representing a resolution of 960-by-640 pixels, which itself is a pixel-doubled 480-by-320 resolution found on the non-Retina 3.5″ original iPhone and the iPhone 3G/3Gs.

📲 Industry experts and analysts are anticipating huge release results, now that Apple is finally delivering LARGER display iPhones. Accordingly the prognosticators are also predicting an large influx of Android users that have been waiting to join the Apple EcoSystem, now that the display size issue is being resolved.

📲 Apple’s Retina Display: Apple’s retina display signifies a range of resolutions depending on the distance from ones Eyes the display is viewed. The human Eye is an organic camera system contain an auto-focus lens which focuses the subject light onto a dense-quilt of photo-sensitive living biological “Cone & Rod” cells. This organic array of specialized living cells, “attached” to the back-wall of the interior of one’s Eye is called the Retina.

📲 Ophthalmologists, have determined if one is reading a book, picture, iPad, iPhone about 14″ away from your Eyes, and if the content of the book’s font characters or pictures are comprised of picture-elements, pixels, the human Eye is not capable if distinguishing individual pixels from each other, if they are packed at a density of 300 pixels per inch, 300 ppi. Recall that 300 ppi means that there are 90,000 pixels within each square inch. The current 4″ diagonal display of 1,136-by-640 pixels on the iPhone 5/5s/5c has a pixel density of 326 ppi.

📲 I’m a Believer – Apple is reported to have placed their iPhone 6 order for 90 million units! Looks like FOXCON is going to be very, very busy this year. Recall there are over 475,000,000 iPhones in circulation – there will be a huge number of UpGrades this year, plus a Large number of Migrations from Android to iPhone 6.

📲 Q1, 2014 Apple sold just under 50 million iPhones, therefore ordering 90 million units is giving Apple just a head-start for a what the industry and Apple believes will be a huge iphone 6 launch. In looking at the schematics and the prototypes constructed, Personally, I’m upgrading to the iPhone Air.

📲 The iPhone with its Apps transform the smartphone into a valued business tool, scanner, portable fax, communications device, eMail, Text messaging, and of course a Phone. It will be interesting if Logitech develops one of their UltraThin Keyboard Covers for the iPhone Air, as we both have the Logitech keyboard covers for our iPad minis.

ğŸŽ Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, He is in it, to Win It, Period! This intensity and commitment is terrific for Apple product users, as we are all going to receive better products, and great for Apple’s share holders.

ğŸŽ Speaking of Apple Shareholders. At Apple’s recent quarterly Conference Call, Tim Cook announced that it had a record profit Quarter, the company will be forward splitting its sharers 7-for-1, meaning if you presently own 100 AAPL shares, June 9th Apple will be sending you another 600 shares. This brings the present (6/4/2014) share-price of $644/share for example, to about $92/share, making its shares more “affordable” to an expanded audience of smaller investors.

ğŸŽ Take a look at the Graphic of iPhone Sales. Lets focus on the period of Q1+Q2, 2010 to Q1+Q2, 2014, in this 4 year period iPhone sales grew from 16 million iPhones in 6 months to over 100 million in 6 months. Look at the Slope of the Green trend-line.

ğŸŽ The Line is pointed UP, significantly Up. It does not take a PhD in mathematics and statistics to “extrapolate” what the future quarters may look like, if the the past trends have any possible “predictability” for what Apple’s iPhone future sales may be. No one knows for sure, but my Guess is Apple’s iPhone sales will continue to increase. Likely because Apple continues to reinvent the SmartPhone with innovations that people want.

ğŸŽ Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says, Apple is planning to debut two new iPhone models with two distinct screen sizes in 2014, an unprecedented move for Apple that traditionally has shied away from screen size wars. However a very large survey of iPhone owners, over 60% of their installed-base desires larger display sizes. The graphic of an iPhone may depict the ICON Layout for the new iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ Aside from obvious size differences, the top-of-the-line 5.5″ model will sport a high-resolution display of 1,920-by-1,080 pixels, which represents the same resolution as your large Flat-screen HDTV, translates to 401 pixels per inch, (ppi) in the palm of your hand. The 4.7″ iteration will use a 1,334-by-750 pixel-display to maintain scalability with existing iPhone Apps, representing a pixel density of 326 ppi, meeting or exceeding the “Retina” resolution, Apple set several years ago.

ğŸŽ Both handsets will use Apple’s next-generation A8 system-on-chip with 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM, low temperature polysilicon in-cell touch panels and Touch ID fingerprint security.

ğŸŽ Importantly, a near-field communications chip-set (NFC) and a metal casing are also part of the build. An 10-megapixel rear-facing camera with a f/2.0 aperture is expected, though Apple may improve the camera system to include an improved electronic or optical image stabilization to improve low-light performance, an exciting feature new to the smart-phones, taking the “camera shake” for low light “party” photography.

ğŸŽ As to aesthetics, the iPhones’ bezels are said to be 10% to 20% narrower than the current iPhone 5s, while thinness is pegged at 7.0 millimeters. Kuo also says Apple will move the location of the Top of the iPhone’s sleep/wake button to the right-side of the iPhone, to facilitate one-handed operation. This button-relocation may indicate a new feature that requires frequent pressing of the power button for other functions. Good we could actually need one more button, to eliminate too many soft-menus on the display.

ğŸŽ While the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be within Apple’s guidelines of one-handed operation, Kuo believes Apple may position from a product line-up perspective the 5.5″ version as a higher-end iPhone Air (Phablet) perhaps with an additional $100 premium. I’ll go for it.

ğŸŽ Kuo also believes the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be Apple’s main driver of handset sales in late 2014 and full-year shipments could exceed 60 million units. My guess it will be double or triple this estimate.

ğŸŽ The 5.5″ iPhone Air model may cannibalize some of the sales of the iPad mini, but if the company can marginally reduce the price-tag of its iPad mini, its iPad line-up should remain strong.

ğŸŽ IMHO, its better to cannibalize the iPad mini to yourself, than to be cannibalized by the Competitors, by not having the 5.5″ iPhone Phablet, as has happened over the last 18 months. This is probable the only “mistake” IMHO, Apple has encountered recently. However, who am I to say that Apple made a “misstep” when Apple is delivering 200 million iPhones/year currently. But, what’s not to like with another 30 million units sold.

ğŸŽ We may likely see a terrific migration from Android ➡️ Apple this year and next, perhaps at a rate of a 35% shift ➡️ Apple, with these two larger display choices in Apple’s iPhone line-up. Presently, Android users are migrating ➡️ Apple’s way at a rate of over 20% or more.

ğŸŽ Kuo expects both iPhone 6 models to hit store shelves in the 3rd Quarter of 2014, with Apple keeping the iPhone 5s and 5c on board as mid-tier and low-tier offerings. Due to the expanded handset lineup, the iPhone 4S and 4 will reach end-of-life in 2014.

ğŸŽ Details on Apple’s plans for the 2014 iPhone lineup were published on Tuesday by Japanese blog Macotakara. Citing a trusted source, “Apple has designed two larger iPhone models, sporting 4.7″ and 5.5″ displays, which are final candidates for launch in 2014.”

ğŸŽ Apple’s New iPhone 6 is without a doubt one of the most hotly anticipated smartphone launches of 2014. A dozen or so independent reports suggest that the handset will feature a new larger 4.7″ display and a fresh new design that is thinner than ever. The iPhone 6 is also expected to be accompanied by a new iPhone phablet that will include a 5.5″ screen to help attract new business over from the Android camp.

ğŸŽ Another day, another set of iPhone 6 rumors trickles out from the East Asia. According to the latest report, Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 is ready to enter its mass production phase in May, 2014, with 90 Million Units ordered. The timing would align perfectly with a launch in the 3rd Quarter of 2014. This timing is as expected by most of the other industry watchers. Interestingly, this new report suggests that Apple’s second new iPhone for 2014, the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ Display may be in mass-production until later in the 3rd quarter, 2014 which obviously suggests that it won’t debut until sometime later in 2014.

ğŸŽ We encourage Apple to release both iPhone 6 Models, the 4.75″ and the 5.5″ displays simultaneously. There is such a huge expectation that Apple will be coming out with a “Phablet” (a term Apple despises). If Apple delays the iPhone Air, it may significantly erode the launch of iPhone 6, folks waiting to see both devices, so to choose between the two. Personally, I would wait, and would recommend to my friends, to delay updating until both are announced and visualized. It would be better to delay the iPhone 6, so that it is released with the iPhone Air, than to bifurcate Apple’s iPhone 6 releases.

ğŸŽ According to a report relayed by EMSOne, Taiwan-based Industrial and Commercial Times claims that Apple’s manufacturing partners will begin mass-producing the new iPhone 6 in July. With three months of lead time, that certainly could align well with a late September launch that keeps Apple’s fall iPhone launch pattern alive.

ğŸŽ Interestingly, however, the report claims that Apple’s larger iPhone Phablet may not enter mass-production until sometime in September. If accurate, the device may not debut alongside the iPhone 6, but instead perhaps in later 2014 or early 2015. Remember all these remarks are rumors and “deductions” from supply-line insiders.

ğŸŽ Despite the potential late-start for Apple’s iPhone Phablet production, Industrial and Commercial Times claims that both new iPhones will launch sometime in the fourth quarter this year.

ğŸŽ Apple’s new iPhone 6 is expected to feature an entirely new design with a 4.7″ display, a thinner housing and an upgraded processor. The iPhone phablet is expected to sport a similar design with a larger 5.5″ screen.

ğŸŽ If the reports we have been reading, even come close to representing the handsets Apple actually launches in the 3rd quarter of 2014, we may expect APPLE to crush the sales records the Company set in the fall of 2013, when the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C debuted together, Apple’s first announcement of 2-model on the same Day.

ğŸŽ Recall Apple sold 9 Million iPhones on the opening weekend, 50% greater sales than its previous release weekend of 6 million units. Remember about 55% of All American smartphone users are carrying Apple iPhones.

ğŸŽ Total iPhone sales since its beginning in July, 2007 is presently in excess of 475,000,000 units, Add to this 175,000,000 iPads, the total Apple iOS devices in use equates to roughly 650,000,000. Extend this figure to year end, 12/31/2014, Apple could be sitting with 800,000,000 iPhones and iPads in circulation.. sometime in 2015 Apple may be crossing this 1,000,000,000 threshold (yes that’s One-Billion) globally.

ğŸŽ IMHO, this is exactly what the iPhone Market needs, two serious screen sizes to choose between. The choice of either the 4.7″ display or the 5.5″ display will be perfect Selections to choose from, and will certainly silence the Apple critics for not having a choice of displays. Assuming Apple retains the current Model iPhone 5S, with the New Models, The iphone 6 with its 4.7″ display and the iPhone Air with its 5.5″ display.

Apple offering Four iPhones Models, covering a variety of Display Sizes

ğŸŽ iPhone 4S… 3.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… 99¢
ğŸŽ iPhone 5S… 4.0″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $99
ğŸŽ iPhone 6….. 4.7″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $199
ğŸŽ iPhone Air… 5.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $299

ğŸŽ Lets assume for the moment that Macotakara Publication is accurate regarding the two new display sizes. Lets further assume that Jimmy’s subsidized price “quesstimates” will range from 99¢ for the 3.5″ iPhone 4S to $299 for the 5.5″ iPhone Air, as shown above.
