ğŸŽ The entire Tech Community, self included are Buzzing with anticipation, and now with the new iPhone 6 in their hands are raving about Apple’s significant update of their very popular iPhone product.

ğŸŽ We both Upgraded to iPhone 6 Plus. Yes, it IS really worth it! Yes, we Upgraded with AT&T’s NEXT plan. Yes, we stood on a long line (being number 171 of thousands) outside Apple’s Store at the Boca Raton Town Center Mall, from 2:15am Friday Morning with all the Crazed Apple folks.

ğŸŽ Apple opened its doors at 8:00AM, and it took until 12 Noon before we entered the Apple Store, and 30 minutes later we were on our way with these marvelous hand-held devices. The image below is captured at 4:30AM, Sept 19, 2014 showing thousands waiting on the long line outside of the Town Center Mall, Boca Raton, the location of the Apple Store. At 6:AM the Mall doors opened, and at 8AM exactly Apple Opened its doors to begin its 3-Day Weekend.

ğŸŽ Notice in the image above taken at 11am Friday outside the Apple Store. Notice the Apple Logo, this is the on the Glass walls and Doors of the Apple store, everyone in the foreground of the Apple logo are waiting to enter the store, those in front of the Apple Logo are outside of the Store waiting for their turn to enter the Store. Once the Store was filled, one person leaves, then a new customer may enter. I’m told that over 200 Apple associates were “on duty” for Friday’s release of the iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ Thousands of Media folks traveled to San Francisco from ALL over the World to attend Apple’s Media Event. All the Satellite Trucks uploaded information, videos, a 120 minute live-streaming quality broadcast around the planet, which LAUNCHED the Buzz that contributed to Apple selling over 4,000,000 iPhone 6 Plus iPhones in 24 hours, on September 12, 2014.

ğŸŽ If you take a moment and watch only the first 5 minutes, you will begin to understand the uniqueness of Apple and how they Message their Spirit, and the way they really do “Think Differently” than any other Company.

ğŸŽ http://www.apple.com/live/

➡️ Apple Inc released a statement that it sold a record 10 million iPhones in the first weekend after its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, two larger phone models went on sale in 10 countries on Friday, September 19, 2014.

ğŸŽ The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, drew more than 4 million pre-orders on Sept. 12, more than double the 2 million orders for the company’s iPhone 5 model in the same 3 day weekend period two years ago, in 2012. Analysts had estimated first-weekend sales of up to 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, based on the first-day pre-orders of 4 million units.

ğŸŽ Looking at the iPhone Pre-Orders that occurs usually several days after Apple announced (this year held on September 9th) its new iPhone at its Media event, this year the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus consummated over 4,000,000 in just 24 hours on September 12, 2013.

ğŸŽ Apple again had record sales for its 3-Day launch weekend delivering over 10,000,000 iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Recall that due to regulatory issues in China, the iPhone 6 smartphones were not available for sale in China, otherwise these figures may have given even more sales.

ğŸŽ Wondering how the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus displays compare to prior models, the graphic shows the specifications of the display for recent and current iPhone models. Clearly the new iPhone 6 display technology has set the benchmark for the smartphone industry.

ğŸŽ Industry experts have polled tens of thousands of current iPhone smartphone owners to determine which iPhone 6 model they’d buy, the new larger standard iPhone 6 or the even Larger iPhone 6 Plus with its 5.5″ display. Most surveys agreed that 2/3rd would go for the iPhone 6 and 1/3rd would buy the iPhone 6 Plus.

ğŸŽ When in line at the Town Center Mall in the “wee hours of the morning”, I interviewed hundreds for their preference, and the split was about 50/50 for the two models; However, many said that if Apple ran out of stock on the iPhone 6 Plus, they would buy the iPhone 6. There were many, about 50% of those that I surveyed, that wanted the iPhone 6, and would not take the larger 6 Plus, if the Apple store ran out of stock of the iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ The new Apple custom-designed A8 chip houses 2 Billion Transistors housed in this chip, twice the number in the iPhone 5’s A7 chip, having a mere 1 Billion transistors, so a lot more processing is going on inside the A8 chip.

ğŸŽ Apple mentions that the A8 chip is architectured on a 20 nanometer scale, this represents very, very thin layers of silicone, which translates to, the A8 chip requires much lower level of Power to operate. Previous chips were 27 nanometer, and before this 36 nanometers. Improved manufacturing techniques have made it possible this year with the A8 chip to trim the silicon transistor layers by “millionths of a meter” in thin-ness. The bottom line for iPhone 6 users, thinner is better for improved battery life.

ğŸŽ Notice the Cross Section of Apple’s iPhone 6’s HD Retina Display showing the patented techniques Apple used in creating Brilliant, Accurate, Ultra High display of Pictures and Content, never before delivered on a hand-held device.

ğŸŽ The Graphs show the improved “processing speed” of 50 times that of the processor of the first iPhone. The other Graph shows the “graphics processing speed” as Apple continues to advance the display of graphics on the Display now 84 time faster than its first iPhone, important for complex imaging on the internet and for Games that are Power Hungry.

➡️ Marilyn and I have had the privilege of covering a number of very important events (for example the 2012 Presidential Debate) where almost Every Major Broadcast organization from around the world converged on South Florida. Certainly, an Apple product release doesn’t measure to the significance of a Presidential Debate, but in the world of consumer products, the iPhone 6 is a huge event in retailing. Apple’s product Announcements deliver incredible interest globally too, perhaps the “Super Bowl of Retailing.”

ğŸŽ Lets take a look inside the iPhone 6. iFIXit is known for repairing iPhones and experienced in “breaking down iPhones” so one can see how to get inside the iPhone, and once inside, what does all this technology look like.

ğŸŽ Displayed are three images, showing the tool to lift the Display from the iPhone, the next view shows the battery being lifted up, and the third view is a magnified view of Apple’s iSight Camera module which includes the 5-element Lens, the Optical Image Stabilizer and the newly engineered 8 million pixel imager which is at the bottom of the camera module. For a point of reference, the entire iSight Camera Module housed in the iPhone 6 is about the size of a small kernel of corn, or the size of a green pea.

ğŸŽ Yours truly is always interested in looking inside these devices; however, I’m also a total coward in attempting to get inside of my iPhone for fear of not being able to reassembling it, not to mention the specialized equipment needed. For the more curious, http://www.iFIXit.com has a complete demonstration of the many step procedures required in dis-assembling many of the iPhone models.

➡️ The iPhone 6 Question remains with a number of interested folks,
“is upgrading from my smartphone to the iPhone 6 really worth the expense. Here are a few reasons to make the investment with this new iPhone 6.

➡️ Recent surveys indicate that an increasing percentage of smartphone users are going to upgrade very soon to the new iPhone 6: with existing iPhone users crossing the 66% mark (“I will upgrade to iPhone 6″), accompanied by an amazing 38% of Android users, have apparently decided to migrate to the iPhone 6. These Android crossovers statistics to Apple iPhone 6 have been recently confirmed by AT&T Verizon, and Sprint, as they are reporting the iPhone 6 Activations, and what products were de-activated, with each sale.

➡️ Question: Upgrading to iPhone 6, is it really worth it, as Apple Unveiled its new iPhone to the World. Below are the improved technology characteristics of the iPhone 6 to consider:

1⃣ iPhone 6 gives the user a Larger 4.7″ Display as compared to the 4″ display of the previous iPhone 5 model

2⃣ iPhone 6 gives the user a Huge 5.5″ Display option, making it a “Phablet” competitive smart Phone/Tablet alternative. Having had the opportunity of using the iPhone 6 Plus for 4-days, it is a wonderful “Piece of Kit” as my friends from over the pond say. Apple has put an incredible amount of effort to determine the optimal dimensions for most folks.

In comparison to the former leading “Phablet” maker, Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and 5, these models are about 1/3rd inch wider, 20% thicker, and a bit taller than the iPhone 6 Plus. Having handled all three devices, Apple selecting a 5.5″ display size at 158mm tall, 78mm wide and 7mm thin, it fits perfectly in one’s hand when making or receiving telephone calls; combined with the added utility of the iPhone’s display which is 188% larger than the iPhone 5, 5S or 5C, for reading and sending emails, text messages, browsing the internet, and everything else smartphones with Apple’s huge array of Apps

3⃣ iPhone 6 had advanced A8 processing for quicker graphic display, fast mathematic calculations among other processing demands placed upon it, like the Image processing, color rasterization, and noise abatement algorithms

4⃣ iPhone 6 Plus (only) has an advanced Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) for its Camera Lens system. The new Camera with its OIS usually found only in sophisticated $1500 Canon Lenses, it really takes the “shake” out of taking pictures in low light Party venues, for example

5⃣ iPhone 6 has an improved iSight Camera with totally new High Resolution imager with greater low light sensitivity, with a f2.2 aperture

6⃣ iPhone 6 gives the user faster WiFi capabilities with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac transceivers, measuring 2 to 10 times faster up-load and down-load speeds.

7⃣ iPhone 6 gives the user better Voice Calling (XLTE) capable, significantly increasing Audio quality of your voice and that of your callers. The Major cellular providers are separately “Branding” their own version of this Advanced Audio mobile calling capability. The major providers are upgrading their networks to accommodate this highly improved Voice Transmission, available in major markets during 2014 and 2015.

8⃣ iPhone 6 gives the same 1.0BG RAM memory, however, increasing the internal efficiency and communications with its A8 Processing Chip for the hand-set’s computer.

9⃣ iPhone 6 gives twice the Storage Capacity capability up to 128GB, recently only available in advanced Laptop and Desktop computers

🔟 iPhone 6 gives Significantly higher display resolution, meaning the Larger Displays are also provide for higher resolution (more Pixels) for up to 401dpi on the iPhone 6 Plus with 1080×1920 pixel dimension which matches the best Large 60″ Flat-Screen HDTV sets available today.

Think about it, the iPhone 6 Plus has the same pixel dimensions of our 60″ flat screen HDTV in our living room, squeezed into iPhones 5.5″ display, talk about “crystal clear” images, graphics, games, books, internet display

🔢 iPhone 6 gives an improved handling capability. Our personal experience with the iPhone 5, its a bit too thick in relationship to its width making it slip more easily in one’s hand. With the iPhone 6 being a few millimeters wider, and 20% thinner, with rounded edges, it is easier to grip firmly in hand, IMHO.


ğŸŽ Apple being the largest Market Cap Corporation traded on global exchanges, and Apple having taken over the High-end Smart Phone market, having delivered close to a Billion iPhones and iPads to a loyal user base, this media attention is very much deserved.

ğŸŽ Millions of folks are outwardly excited about the iPhone, and many others are equally excited but afraid to show it… It takes many years to launch the iPhone 6, with its design and engineering dating back to 2011. Apple’s iPhone 6 is an extremely sophisticated telecommunications device housing a very powerful hand-held Computer, having 3 times the processing power of all the computers housed in the US Space Shuttle.

ğŸŽ The Venue has changed this year to the FLINT CENTER at the De Anza College campus. Apple has held most its iDevice launches in recent years at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco or on Apple’s campus in Cupertino.

ğŸŽ Apple unveiled the iPhone 6 and its first wearable at a huge event Tuesday, 9/9, you’ll be able to watch the announcements as they happen, and afterwards at your leisure. Apple has been Video-streaming their Major events online for all to see. Unfortunately, Apple requires that you use Safari on a MAC or PC, use an iPhone, an iPad, or use Apple TV to view this Apple presentation. This may eliminate some potential viewers; but it means that all current Mac, iPad and iPhone users will be able to click onto the link and watch.

ğŸŽ If you are indisposed during the live-broadcast, Apple records the entire broadcast for viewing later in the day or weeks later. This broadcast is worth your time to view.

Apple’s Link to its Special Media Event, broadcasted, September 9, 2014 Tuesday 1:00PM Eastern.

http://www.apple.com/live/



ğŸŽ Apple has important history with the Flint Center. Steve Jobs unveiled the very first MAC Computer at the Flint Center in 1984; Jobs also showed off iMACs at Flint in 1998 and 1999. The Flint Center can also accommodate a significantly larger crowd (over 3000) than the other venues Apple has used, further indicating the event’s importance to the company.

ğŸŽ SUGGESTION: Take a Time-Out to watch this Apple product Launch on your iPad or iPhone. If this is your first time to watch an Apple Streaming Broadcast of an Apple event, this will be an unforgettable occasion to do so.

ğŸŽ Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO begins on stage welcoming Everyone, and then speaks about some of the startling statistics regarding the Billions of Apps that have been Downloaded, Apple’s on-line Store has a Billion active authorized Credit Cards, the largest number of any retailer globally…

ğŸŽ Tim Cook continues, to a few beautifully produced video clips, then onto the product Announcement. Recall, 54% of everyone using smartphones in North America, carry an iPhone. Apple is by a wide margin THE Largest Corporation in the World, with a huge Market Cap of $592 Billion as of Friday’s market close, $AAPL closing at $98.97/share, 9/5/2014.

ğŸŽ Know this, Tens of Millions of people will be standing in lines at hundreds of Apple Retail Stores, around the World, to buy the iPhone 6, likely selling 15 Million iPhones in its opening Weekend, on its way to selling 200,000,000 iPhones in 12 months, adding to the 550,000,000 iPhones in circulation.

ğŸŽ What is the Definition of Confidence in Retailing? Apple has Booked so much product shipping commitments from FedEX and UPS, that there is no capacity remaining in the world. For Apple, that defines Confidence, when it buys up almost ALL the Over Night Shipping Capacity in preparation to move literally Millions iPhones to distribution centers around the Globe for Apple’s FRIDAY September 19th release of the iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ How does Apple iPhone Generate Unprecedented Customer Excitement as Millions of Folks Globally Lineup at Apple Retail Stores awaiting the New iPhone 6 PLUS an authentic iPhone 6 Sneak Peek.

ğŸŽ PLUS Everything You Need to Know about Apple’s Tuesday Media Event in 2 Days for iPhone 6 & 6L ~ Event Date 9/9/2014 @ 1pm Est ~ On Sale Friday 9/19 @ 8AM Eastern.

ğŸŽ Battle of the iPhone 6 Rumors is in Full Bloom, now that we are only 2 days before Apple’s Media Event of September 9th. Apple iPhone Generates Unprecedented Customer Excitement as Millions of folks Globally lineup at Apple Retail Stores awaiting the New iPhone 6. Some folks join the line many days before Apple Announces their New Products, (September 9) and many more step up, days before Apple actually receives the shipment the new iPhones into their retail stores (September 19).

ğŸŽ Apple is anal about keeping everything in strict secrecy. The Apple retail store employees are not permitted to even see the boxed iPhone, except for the hour of the Store Opening on “Release DAY.” Even with all of Apple’s attempts to veil the iPhone 6 in secrecy, the rumor-mill is jammed with supposedly authentic images, scree shots, etc.

ğŸŽ Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap has Solved its component issues, Solved its manufacturing problems relating to the production of the iPhone 6 and its big brother the iPhone 6L with its 5.5″ display. What makes the Apple products so appealing is their incredible attention to the most minute design element, externally, and internally. This attention to detail gives the unmistakable mark of Quality, generally seen only in the most expensive Laboratory Equipment.


ğŸŽ What do we believe we know or not know just 2 Days before this historic Product Announcement. Let’s face it no one outside of the small circle of Apple Executives, knows what the iPhone 6 will contain. However, with “leaked” images, schematics, screen captures of FOXconn computer monitors, we can make deductions of what may be the iPhone 6. As of this late Date some of the most questioned specifications are
ğŸŽ Sapphire or not Sapphire
ğŸŽ Camera Pixel Count
ğŸŽ Optical Image Stabilization
ğŸŽ What will Apple Name the 5.5″ iPhone 6

ğŸŽ What is truly Crazy about Folks lining up outside the NYC Apple Retail Store at 57th and 5th Ave. Apple Madness at this early date, 9/4/2014, with the new Apple iPhone 6 not been officially announced, expected on Tuesday 9/9 at 1pm Eastern.

ğŸŽ What makes this frenzie Extra Crazy, is Apple will not releasing their New iPhone 6 until Friday 9/19 assuming Apple follows their usual time-gap to have products delivered to their Retail Stores. Therefore, these folks lined up have likely 12 Days before they can enter the Store for the New iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ Admittedly, in 2010 yours truly got up really early like 4:30am, got dressed and arrived at the Apple Retail Store at the Boca Raton Town Center Mall at 5:15am with my Wallet, my Camera and my Note-pad.

ğŸŽ Not Only did Marilyn and I want the new iPhone 4 smartphones, I was asked to cover this “Retail Event” for the OBSERVER Newspaper, otherwise my friends would think I’m crazy too. It was Very interesting meeting all the folks and speaking with them on the line, from all over the world, Students, Athletes, Faculty, Retirees… Everyone wanting Apple’s first retina display iPhone. By 1:00pm I entered the Apple Store for two AT&T iPhones, and 30 minutes later I was on my way with the latest and greatest, plus a story published in the evening newspaper and TV.

ğŸŽ Apple Retail Grand Weekend Event likely September 19, 2014 should be huge, as industry experts predict that of the 550,000,000 iPhone users from the iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S 5C, on average 35% of these Apple iPhone users have reported to an industry survey they are moving forward to the iPhone 6 or 6L because of the new technology and the larger display. If this survey is valid, Apple may experience a virtual Tsunami of iPhone 6 Sales, setting retail records for the release of a consumer product.

ğŸŽ 46% of iPhone 3G users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 43% of iPhone 4 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 40% of iPhone 4S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 36% of iPhone 5 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 24% of iPhone 5S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 15% of iPhone 5C users are upgrading to iPhone 6

ğŸŽ 35% of Android Users will Migrate to the iPhone 6 mostly turning in their Galaxy Samsung, LG, HTC, Microsoft smartphones. There are other sales influences. Another major personal electronics surveyor made inquiries to 30,000 users of smartphones using the Android Operating System. This survey was conducted because of the apparent high level of vulnerability of Android smartphones due to an extensive Fragmentation issue.

ğŸŽ Android Fragmentation is caused by Android users refusing to update their operating system to the most current KitKat version, presently adopted by only 20% of their user base, for fear of having their Apps, the smartphone, or both to Freeze.

ğŸŽ Conversely, in perspective and context, over 90% of Apple iOS iPhone users have already updated to iOS7 or greater. Both of these Operating Systems (KitKat and iOS7) were released the same week in September, 2013. Accordingly, the Android user survey indicated that 35% of Android Users are Migrating to Apple’s iPhone 6 once its released.

1⃣ Join the Excitement at your Apple retail store, but get there early say 5am in most Cities, as the Apple stores may be Sold-Out by 1pm. Admittedly, I got to the Town Center Mall at 5:30am, where there were already 500 folks standing on line waiting for the 8am store opening. Lots of Media and Police for security. I finally entered the Apple Store at Noon, and they were running out of all the 16GB version iPhone 5 models

2⃣ Join the Excitement at your AT&T retail store (or Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) but get there early by 5am in most Cities, as these stores may be Sold-Out fast likely by 11am. AT&T opened at 8:00am, my turn came to enter the store at 9am, received my iPhone 5S and was done by 9:30

3⃣ No Excitement: Order the iPhone 6 On-Line ASAP when its made available. You will receive your iPhone 6 with a guaranteed delivery on 9/19/2014 by UPS directly from Apple’s manufacturing contractor FOXconn, from 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 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.

Question: Upgrading to iPhone 6, is it really worth it, as Apple Unveils its new iPhone to the World in 1 Day as the Count Down continues to Show-Time: Tomorrow, Tuesday at 1:00PM Eastern ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

➡️ Marilyn and I have had the privilege of covering a number of very important events (for example the 2012 Presidential Debate) where almost Every Major Broadcast organization from around the world converged on South Florida.

➡️ The iPhone 6 Question remains with a number of interested folks,
“is upgrading from my smartphone to the iPhone 6 really worth the expense. Here are a few reasons to make the investment with this new iPhone 6.

➡️ Recent surveys indicate that an increasing percentage of smartphone users are going to upgrade to the new iPhone 6: with existing iPhone users crossing the 66% mark (“I will upgrade to iPhone 6″), accompanied by an amazing 38% of Android users, have now decided to migrate to the iPhone 6.

➡️ Question: Upgrading to iPhone 6, is it really worth it, as Apple Unveils its new iPhone to the World in 1 Day as the Count Down continues to Show-Time: Tomorrow, Tuesday at 1:00PM Eastern. Below are the improved technology characteristics of the iPhone 6 to consider:

1⃣ iPhone 6 gives the user a Larger 4.7″ Display as compared to the 4″ display of the previous iPhone 5 model

2⃣ iPhone 6 gives the user a Huge 5.5″ Display option, making it a “Phablet” competitive smart Phone/Tablet alternative

3⃣ iPhone 6 had advanced A8 processing for quicker graphic display and fast mathematic calculations

4⃣ iPhone 6 has an advanced Optical Image Stabilization for its Camera

5⃣ iPhone 6 has an improved iSight Camera with Higher Resolution imager

6⃣ iPhone 6 gives the user faster WiFi capabilities with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac transceivers

7⃣ iPhone 6 gives the user better Voice Calling (XLTE) capable, significantly increasing Audio quality of your voice and that of your callers. The Major cellular providers are separately “Branding” their own version of this Advanced Audio mobile calling capability.

8⃣ iPhone 6 gives twice the RAM memory increasing the internal efficiency for the hand-set’s computer

9⃣ iPhone 6 gives twice the Storage Capacity to 128GB, recently only available in advanced Laptop and Desktop computers

🔟 iPhone 6 gives Significantly higher display resolution, meaning the Larger Displays are also provide for higher resolution (more Pixels)

🔢 iPhone 6 gives an improved handling capability. Our personal experience with the iPhone 5, its a bit too thick in relationship to its width making it slip more easily in ones hand. With the iPhone 6 being a few millimeters wider and 20% thinner with rounded edges, it will be easier to grip firmly in hand.


ğŸŽ There were 100 Media trucks focusing on their orbiting satellites to pump their signals to their part of the globe. The power requirements to drive all the equipment: LYNN University did not have sufficient electric power, so LYNN and the DEBATE Commission had to bring on campus 5 dozen or so 100 KiloWatt Generators to help supply the electricity-load for all the electronic broadcast equipment, and the thousand Media Reporters. I’m Certainly not comparing the two events from a content perspective; however, when the MEDIA focuses on Topic and an event, their presence in great numbers is very impressive. http://tiny.cc/ydutlx

ğŸŽ Apple being the largest Market Cap Corporation traded on global exchanges, and Apple having taken over the High-end Smart Phone market, having delivered close to a Billion iPhones and iPads to a loyal user base, this media attention is very much deserved.

ğŸŽ Millions of folks are outwardly excited about the iPhone, and many others are equally excited but afraid to show it… It takes many years to launch the iPhone 6, with its design and engineering dating back to 2011. Apple’s iPhone 6 is an extremely sophisticated telecommunications device housing a very powerful hand-held Computer, having 3 times the processing power of all the computers housed in the US Space Shuttle.

ğŸŽ The Venue has changed this year to the FLINT CENTER at the De Anza College campus. Apple has held most its iDevice launches in recent years at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco or on Apple’s campus in Cupertino.

ğŸŽ Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 6 and its first wearable at a huge event Tuesday, 9/9, you’ll be able to watch the announcements as they happen. Apple has been Video-streaming their Major events online for all to see. Unfortunately, Apple requires that you use Safari on a MAC or PC, use an iPhone, an iPad, or use Apple TV to view this Apple presentation. This may eliminate some potential viewers; but it means that all current Mac, iPad and iPhone users will be able to click onto the link and watch.

ğŸŽ If you are indisposed during the live-broadcast, Apple records the entire broadcast for viewing later in the day or weeks later.

ğŸŽ Apple has important history with the Flint Center. Steve Jobs unveiled the very first MAC Computer at the Flint Center in 1984; Jobs also showed off iMACs at Flint in 1998 and 1999. The Flint Center can also accommodate a significantly larger crowd (over 3000) than the other venues Apple has used, further indicating the event’s importance to the company.

ğŸŽ SUGGESTION: Take a Time-Out at 1:00PM Tuesday and watch this Apple product Launch on your iPad or iPhone. If this is your first time to watch a Live-Streaming Broadcast of an Apple event, this will be an unforgettable occasion to do so.

ğŸŽ Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO begins on stage welcoming Everyone, and then speaks about some of the startling statistics regarding the Billions of Apps that have been Downloaded, Apple’s on-line Store has a Billion active authorized Credit Cards, the largest number of any retailer globally…

ğŸŽ Tim Cook continues, to a few beautifully produced video clips, then onto the product Announcement. Recall, 54% of everyone using smartphones in North America, carry an iPhone. Apple is by a wide margin THE Largest Corporation in the World, with a huge Market Cap of $592 Billion as of Friday’s market close, $AAPL closing at $98.97/share, 9/5/2014.

ğŸŽ Know this, Tens of Millions of people will be standing in lines at hundreds of Apple Retail Stores, around the World, to buy the iPhone 6, likely selling 15 Million iPhones in its opening Weekend, on its way to selling 200,000,000 iPhones in 12 months, adding to the 550,000,000 iPhones in circulation.

ğŸŽ What is the Definition of Confidence in Retailing? Apple has Booked so much product shipping commitments from FedEX and UPS, that there is no capacity remaining in the world. For Apple, that defines Confidence, when it buys up almost ALL the Over Night Shipping Capacity in preparation to move literally Millions iPhones to distribution centers around the Globe for Apple’s FRIDAY September 19th release of the iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ How does Apple iPhone Generate Unprecedented Customer Excitement as Millions of Folks Globally Lineup at Apple Retail Stores awaiting the New iPhone 6 PLUS an authentic iPhone 6 Sneak Peek.

ğŸŽ PLUS Everything You Need to Know about Apple’s Tuesday Media Event in 2 Days for iPhone 6 & 6L ~ Event Date 9/9/2014 @ 1pm Est ~ On Sale Friday 9/19 @ 8AM Eastern.

ğŸŽ Battle of the iPhone 6 Rumors is in Full Bloom, now that we are only 2 days before Apple’s Media Event of September 9th. Apple iPhone Generates Unprecedented Customer Excitement as Millions of folks Globally lineup at Apple Retail Stores awaiting the New iPhone 6. Some folks join the line many days before Apple Announces their New Products, (September 9) and many more step up, days before Apple actually receives the shipment the new iPhones into their retail stores (September 19).

ğŸŽ Apple is anal about keeping everything in strict secrecy. The Apple retail store employees are not permitted to even see the boxed iPhone, except for the hour of the Store Opening on “Release DAY.” Even with all of Apple’s attempts to veil the iPhone 6 in secrecy, the rumor-mill is jammed with supposedly authentic images, scree shots, etc.

ğŸŽ Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap has Solved its component issues, Solved its manufacturing problems relating to the production of the iPhone 6 and its big brother the iPhone 6L with its 5.5″ display. What makes the Apple products so appealing is their incredible attention to the most minute design element, externally, and internally. This attention to detail gives the unmistakable mark of Quality, generally seen only in the most expensive Laboratory Equipment.


ğŸŽ What do we believe we know or not know just 2 Days before this historic Product Announcement. Let’s face it no one outside of the small circle of Apple Executives, knows what the iPhone 6 will contain. However, with “leaked” images, schematics, screen captures of FOXconn computer monitors, we can make deductions of what may be the iPhone 6. As of this late Date some of the most questioned specifications are
ğŸŽ Sapphire or not Sapphire
ğŸŽ Camera Pixel Count
ğŸŽ Optical Image Stabilization
ğŸŽ What will Apple Name the 5.5″ iPhone 6

ğŸŽ What is truly Crazy about Folks lining up outside the NYC Apple Retail Store at 57th and 5th Ave. Apple Madness at this early date, 9/4/2014, with the new Apple iPhone 6 not been officially announced, expected on Tuesday 9/9 at 1pm Eastern.

ğŸŽ What makes this frenzie Extra Crazy, is Apple will not releasing their New iPhone 6 until Friday 9/19 assuming Apple follows their usual time-gap to have products delivered to their Retail Stores. Therefore, these folks lined up have likely 12 Days before they can enter the Store for the New iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ Admittedly, in 2010 yours truly got up really early like 4:30am, got dressed and arrived at the Apple Retail Store at the Boca Raton Town Center Mall at 5:15am with my Wallet, my Camera and my Note-pad.

ğŸŽ Not Only did Marilyn and I want the new iPhone 4 smartphones, I was asked to cover this “Retail Event” for the OBSERVER Newspaper, otherwise my friends would think I’m crazy too. It was Very interesting meeting all the folks and speaking with them on the line, from all over the world, Students, Athletes, Faculty, Retirees… Everyone wanting Apple’s first retina display iPhone. By 1:00pm I entered the Apple Store for two AT&T iPhones, and 30 minutes later I was on my way with the latest and greatest, plus a story published in the evening newspaper and TV.

ğŸŽ Apple Retail Grand Weekend Event likely September 19, 2014 should be huge, as industry experts predict that of the 550,000,000 iPhone users from the iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S 5C, on average 35% of these Apple iPhone users have reported to an industry survey they are moving forward to the iPhone 6 or 6L because of the new technology and the larger display. If this survey is valid, Apple may experience a virtual Tsunami of iPhone 6 Sales, setting retail records for the release of a consumer product.

ğŸŽ 46% of iPhone 3G users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 43% of iPhone 4 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 40% of iPhone 4S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 36% of iPhone 5 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 24% of iPhone 5S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 15% of iPhone 5C users are upgrading to iPhone 6

ğŸŽ 35% of Android Users will Migrate to the iPhone 6 mostly turning in their Galaxy Samsung, LG, HTC, Microsoft smartphones. There are other sales influences. Another major personal electronics surveyor made inquiries to 30,000 users of smartphones using the Android Operating System. This survey was conducted because of the apparent high level of vulnerability of Android smartphones due to an extensive Fragmentation issue.

ğŸŽ Android Fragmentation is caused by Android users refusing to update their operating system to the most current KitKat version, presently adopted by only 20% of their user base, for fear of having their Apps, the smartphone, or both to Freeze.

ğŸŽ Conversely, in perspective and context, over 90% of Apple iOS iPhone users have already updated to iOS7 or greater. Both of these Operating Systems (KitKat and iOS7) were released the same week in September, 2013. Accordingly, the Android user survey indicated that 35% of Android Users are Migrating to Apple’s iPhone 6 once its released.

1⃣ Join the Excitement at your Apple retail store, but get there early say 5am in most Cities, as the Apple stores may be Sold-Out by 1pm. Admittedly, I got to the Town Center Mall at 5:30am, where there were already 500 folks standing on line waiting for the 8am store opening. Lots of Media and Police for security. I finally entered the Apple Store at Noon, and they were running out of all the 16GB version iPhone 5 models

2⃣ Join the Excitement at your AT&T retail store (or Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) but get there early by 5am in most Cities, as these stores may be Sold-Out fast likely by 11am. AT&T opened at 8:00am, my turn came to enter the store at 9am, received my iPhone 5S and was done by 9:30

3⃣ No Excitement: Order the iPhone 6 On-Line ASAP when its made available. You will receive your iPhone 6 with a guaranteed delivery on 9/19/2014 by UPS directly from Apple’s manufacturing contractor FOXconn, from 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 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

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 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.

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.

Apple Unveils iPhone 6 to the World in 2 Days, 0 Hours, 0 Seconds as the Count Down to Tuesday at 1:00PM Eastern ~ The Tech Community is Buzzing ~ Thousands are Traveling to San Francisco from All over the World to attend Apple’s Media Event

1410108666.jpg

ğŸŽ Apple Unveils iPhone 6 to the World in 3 Days, 2 Hours, as the Count Down to Tuesday at 10:00AM Pacific, 1:00PM Eastern.

ğŸŽ The entire Tech Community, self included are Buzzing with anticipation.

ğŸŽ Many thousands of Media folks are traveling to San Francisco from All over the World to attend Apple’s Media Event. All the Satellite Trucks uploading information, videos, a 90 minute live-streaming quality broadcast around the planet. The link is below the Count-Down graphic.

ğŸŽ Marilyn and I have had the privilege of covering a number of very important events (for example the 2012 Presidential Debate) where almost Every Major Broadcast organization from around the world converged on South Florida.

ğŸŽ There were 100 Media trucks focusing on their orbiting satellites to pump their signals to their part of the globe. The power requirements to drive all the equipment: LYNN University did not have sufficient electric power, so LYNN and the DEBATE Commission had to bring on campus 5 dozen or so 100 KiloWatt Generators to help supply the electricity-load for all the electronic broadcast equipment, and the thousand Media Reporters. I’m Certainly not comparing the two events from a content perspective; however, when the MEDIA focuses on Topic and an event, their presence in great numbers is very impressive.

http://tiny.cc/ydutlx

ğŸŽ Apple being the largest Market Cap Corporation traded on global exchanges, and Apple having taken over the High-end Smart Phone market, having delivered close to a Billion iPhones and iPads to a loyal user base, this media attention is very much deserved.

ğŸŽ Millions of folks are outwardly excited about the iPhone, and many others are equally excited but afraid to show it… It takes many years to launch the iPhone 6, with its design and engineering dating back to 2011. Apple’s iPhone 6 is an extremely sophisticated telecommunications device housing a very powerful hand-held Computer, having 3 times the processing power of all the computers housed in the US Space Shuttle.

ğŸŽ The Venue has changed this year to the FLINT CENTER at the De Anza College campus. Apple has held most its iDevice launches in recent years at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco or on Apple’s campus in Cupertino.

ğŸŽ Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 6 and its first wearable at a huge event Tuesday, 9/9, you’ll be able to watch the announcements as they happen. Apple has been Video-streaming their Major events online for all to see. Unfortunately, Apple requires that you use Safari on a MAC or PC, use an iPhone, an iPad, or use Apple TV to view this Apple presentation. This may eliminate some potential viewers; but it means that all current Mac, iPad and iPhone users will be able to click onto the link and watch.

ğŸŽ If you are indisposed during the live-broadcast, Apple records the entire broadcast for viewing later in the day or weeks later.

Apple’s Link to its Special Media Event, Tuesday 1:00PM Eastern.

http://www.apple.com/live/



ğŸŽ Apple has important history with the Flint Center. Steve Jobs unveiled the very first MAC Computer at the Flint Center in 1984; Jobs also showed off iMACs at Flint in 1998 and 1999. The Flint Center can also accommodate a significantly larger crowd (over 3000) than the other venues Apple has used, further indicating the event’s importance to the company.

ğŸŽ SUGGESTION: Take a Time-Out at 1:00PM Tuesday and watch this Apple product Launch on your iPad or iPhone. If this is your first time to watch a Live-Streaming Broadcast of an Apple event, this will be an unforgettable occasion to do so.

ğŸŽ Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO begins on stage welcoming Everyone, and then speaks about some of the startling statistics regarding the Billions of Apps that have been Downloaded, Apple’s on-line Store has a Billion active authorized Credit Cards, the largest number of any retailer globally…

ğŸŽ Tim Cook continues, to a few beautifully produced video clips, then onto the product Announcement. Recall, 54% of everyone using smartphones in North America, carry an iPhone. Apple is by a wide margin THE Largest Corporation in the World, with a huge Market Cap of $592 Billion as of Friday’s market close, $AAPL closing at $98.97/share, 9/5/2014.

ğŸŽ Know this, Tens of Millions of people will be standing in lines at hundreds of Apple Retail Stores, around the World, to buy the iPhone 6, likely selling 15 Million iPhones in its opening Weekend, on its way to selling 200,000,000 iPhones in 12 months, adding to the 550,000,000 iPhones in circulation.

ğŸŽ What is the Definition of Confidence in Retailing? Apple has Booked so much product shipping commitments from FedEX and UPS, that there is no capacity remaining in the world. For Apple, that defines Confidence, when it buys up almost ALL the Over Night Shipping Capacity in preparation to move literally Millions iPhones to distribution centers around the Globe for Apple’s FRIDAY September 19th release of the iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ How does Apple iPhone Generate Unprecedented Customer Excitement as Millions of Folks Globally Lineup at Apple Retail Stores awaiting the New iPhone 6 PLUS an authentic iPhone 6 Sneak Peek.

ğŸŽ PLUS Everything You Need to Know about Apple’s Tuesday Media Event in 2 Days for iPhone 6 & 6L ~ Event Date 9/9/2014 @ 1pm Est ~ On Sale Friday 9/19 @ 8AM Eastern.

ğŸŽ Battle of the iPhone 6 Rumors is in Full Bloom, now that we are only 2 days before Apple’s Media Event of September 9th. Apple iPhone Generates Unprecedented Customer Excitement as Millions of folks Globally lineup at Apple Retail Stores awaiting the New iPhone 6. Some folks join the line many days before Apple Announces their New Products, (September 9) and many more step up, days before Apple actually receives the shipment the new iPhones into their retail stores (September 19).

ğŸŽ Apple is anal about keeping everything in strict secrecy. The Apple retail store employees are not permitted to even see the boxed iPhone, except for the hour of the Store Opening on “Release DAY.” Even with all of Apple’s attempts to veil the iPhone 6 in secrecy, the rumor-mill is jammed with supposedly authentic images, scree shots, etc.

ğŸŽ Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap has Solved its component issues, Solved its manufacturing problems relating to the production of the iPhone 6 and its big brother the iPhone 6L with its 5.5″ display. What makes the Apple products so appealing is their incredible attention to the most minute design element, externally, and internally. This attention to detail gives the unmistakable mark of Quality, generally seen only in the most expensive Laboratory Equipment.


ğŸŽ What do we believe we know or not know just 2 Days before this historic Product Announcement. Let’s face it no one outside of the small circle of Apple Executives, knows what the iPhone 6 will contain. However, with “leaked” images, schematics, screen captures of FOXconn computer monitors, we can make deductions of what may be the iPhone 6. As of this late Date some of the most questioned specifications are
ğŸŽ Sapphire or not Sapphire
ğŸŽ Camera Pixel Count
ğŸŽ Optical Image Stabilization
ğŸŽ What will Apple Name the 5.5″ iPhone 6

ğŸŽ What is truly Crazy about Folks lining up outside the NYC Apple Retail Store at 57th and 5th Ave. Apple Madness at this early date, 9/4/2014, with the new Apple iPhone 6 not been officially announced, expected on Tuesday 9/9 at 1pm Eastern.

ğŸŽ What makes this frenzie Extra Crazy, is Apple will not releasing their New iPhone 6 until Friday 9/19 assuming Apple follows their usual time-gap to have products delivered to their Retail Stores. Therefore, these folks lined up have likely 12 Days before they can enter the Store for the New iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ Admittedly, in 2010 yours truly got up really early like 4:30am, got dressed and arrived at the Apple Retail Store at the Boca Raton Town Center Mall at 5:15am with my Wallet, my Camera and my Note-pad.

ğŸŽ Not Only did Marilyn and I want the new iPhone 4 smartphones, I was asked to cover this “Retail Event” for the OBSERVER Newspaper, otherwise my friends would think I’m crazy too. It was Very interesting meeting all the folks and speaking with them on the line, from all over the world, Students, Athletes, Faculty, Retirees… Everyone wanting Apple’s first retina display iPhone. By 1:00pm I entered the Apple Store for two AT&T iPhones, and 30 minutes later I was on my way with the latest and greatest, plus a story published in the evening newspaper and TV.

ğŸŽ Apple Retail Grand Weekend Event likely September 19, 2014 should be huge, as industry experts predict that of the 550,000,000 iPhone users from the iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S 5C, on average 35% of these Apple iPhone users have reported to an industry survey they are moving forward to the iPhone 6 or 6L because of the new technology and the larger display. If this survey is valid, Apple may experience a virtual Tsunami of iPhone 6 Sales, setting retail records for the release of a consumer product.

ğŸŽ 46% of iPhone 3G users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 43% of iPhone 4 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 40% of iPhone 4S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 36% of iPhone 5 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 24% of iPhone 5S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 15% of iPhone 5C users are upgrading to iPhone 6

ğŸŽ 35% of Android Users will Migrate to the iPhone 6 mostly turning in their Galaxy Samsung, LG, HTC, Microsoft smartphones. There are other sales influences. Another major personal electronics surveyor made inquiries to 30,000 users of smartphones using the Android Operating System. This survey was conducted because of the apparent high level of vulnerability of Android smartphones due to an extensive Fragmentation issue.

ğŸŽ Android Fragmentation is caused by Android users refusing to update their operating system to the most current KitKat version, presently adopted by only 20% of their user base, for fear of having their Apps, the smartphone, or both to Freeze.

ğŸŽ Conversely, in perspective and context, over 90% of Apple iOS iPhone users have already updated to iOS7 or greater. Both of these Operating Systems (KitKat and iOS7) were released the same week in September, 2013. Accordingly, the Android user survey indicated that 35% of Android Users are Migrating to Apple’s iPhone 6 once its released.

1⃣ Join the Excitement at your Apple retail store, but get there early say 5am in most Cities, as the Apple stores may be Sold-Out by 1pm. Admittedly, I got to the Town Center Mall at 5:30am, where there were already 500 folks standing on line waiting for the 8am store opening. Lots of Media and Police for security. I finally entered the Apple Store at Noon, and they were running out of all the 16GB version iPhone 5 models

2⃣ Join the Excitement at your AT&T retail store (or Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) but get there early by 5am in most Cities, as these stores may be Sold-Out fast likely by 11am. AT&T opened at 8:00am, my turn came to enter the store at 9am, received my iPhone 5S and was done by 9:30

3⃣ No Excitement: Order the iPhone 6 On-Line ASAP when its made available. You will receive your iPhone 6 with a guaranteed delivery on 9/19/2014 by UPS directly from Apple’s manufacturing contractor FOXconn, from 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 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.

ğŸŽ Apple Unveils iPhone 6 to the World in 3 Days, 2 Hours, as the Count Down to Tuesday at 10:00AM Pacific, 1:00PM Eastern. The entire Tech Community, self included are Buzzing with anticipation. Many thousands of Media folks are traveling to San Francisco from All over the World to attend Apple’s Media Event. All the Satellite Trucks uploading information, videos, live broadcasts around the planet. The Venue has changed this year to the FLINT CENTER at the De Anza College campus. Apple has held most its iDevice launches in recent years at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco or on Apple’s campus in Cupertino.

ğŸŽ Apple has important history with the Flint Center. Steve Jobs unveiled the very first MAC Computer at the Flint Center in 1984; Jobs also showed off iMACs at Flint in 1998 and 1999. The Flint Center can also accommodate a significantly larger crowd (over 3000) than the other venues Apple has used, further indicating the event’s importance to the company.

Apple’s Link to its Special Media Event, Tuesday 1:00PM Eastern.

ğŸŽ SUGGESTION: Take a Time-Out at 1:00PM Tuesday and watch this Apple product Launch on your iPad or iPhone. If this is your first time to watch a Live-Streaming Broadcast of an Apple event, this will be an unforgettable occasion to do so.

ğŸŽ Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO begins on stage welcoming Everyone, and then speaks about some of the startling statistics regarding the Billions of Apps that have been Downloaded, Apple’s on-line Store has a Billion active authorized Credit Cards, the largest number of any retailer globally…

ğŸŽ Tim Cook continues, to a few beautifully produced video clips, then onto the product Announcement. Recall, 54% of everyone using smartphones in North America, carry an iPhone. Apple is by a wide margin THE Largest Corporation in the World, with a huge Market Cap of $592 Billion as of Friday’s market close, $AAPL closing at $98.97/share, 9/5/2014.

ğŸŽ Know this, Tens of Millions of people will be standing in lines at hundreds of Apple Retail Stores, around the World, to buy the iPhone 6, likely selling 15 Million iPhones in its opening Weekend, on its way to selling 200,000,000 iPhones in 12 months, adding to the 550,000,000 iPhones in circulation.

ğŸŽ What is the Definition of Confidence in Retailing? Apple has Booked so much product shipping commitments from FedEX and UPS, that there is no capacity remaining in the world. For Apple, that defines Confidence, when it buys up almost ALL the Over Night Shipping Capacity in preparation to move literally Millions iPhones to distribution centers around the Globe for Apple’s FRIDAY September 19th release of the iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ How does Apple iPhone Generate Unprecedented Customer Excitement as Millions of Folks Globally Lineup at Apple Retail Stores awaiting the New iPhone 6 PLUS an authentic iPhone 6 Sneak Peek.

ğŸŽ PLUS Everything You Need to Know about Apple’s Tuesday Media Event in 3 Days for iPhone 6 & 6L ~ Event Date 9/9/2014 @ 1pm Est ~ On Sale Friday 9/19 @ 8AM Eastern.

ğŸŽ Battle of the iPhone 6 Rumors is in Full Bloom, now that we are only 3 days before Apple’s Media Event of September 9th. Apple iPhone Generates Unprecedented Customer Excitement as Millions of folks Globally lineup at Apple Retail Stores awaiting the New iPhone 6. Some folks join the line many days before Apple Announces their New Products, (September 9) and many more step up, days before Apple actually receives the shipment the new iPhones into their retail stores (September 19).

ğŸŽ Apple is anal about keeping everything in strict secrecy. The Apple retail store employees are not permitted to even see the boxed iPhone, except for the hour of the Store Opening on “Release DAY.” Even with all of Apple’s attempts to veil the iPhone 6 in secrecy, the rumor-mill is jammed with supposedly authentic images, scree shots, etc.

ğŸŽ Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap has Solved its component issues, Solved its manufacturing problems relating to the production of the iPhone 6 and its big brother the iPhone 6L with its 5.5″ display. What makes the Apple products so appealing is their incredible attention to the most minute design element, externally, and internally. This attention to detail gives the unmistakable mark of Quality, generally seen only in the most expensive Laboratory Equipment.


ğŸŽ What is truly Crazy about Folks lining up outside the NYC Apple Retail Store at 57th and 5th Ave. Apple Madness at this early date, 9/4/2014, with the new Apple iPhone 6 not been officially announced, expected on Tuesday 9/9 at 1pm Eastern.

ğŸŽ What makes this frenzie Extra Crazy, is Apple will not releasing their New iPhone 6 until Friday 9/19 assuming Apple follows their usual time-gap to have products delivered to their Retail Stores. Therefore, these folks lined up have likely 15 Days before they can enter the Store for the New iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ Admittedly, in 2010 yours truly got up really early like 4:30am, got dressed and arrived at the Apple Retail Store at the Boca Raton Town Center Mall at 5:15am with my Wallet, my Camera and my Note-pad.

ğŸŽ Not Only did Marilyn and I want the new iPhone 4 smartphones, I was asked to cover this “Retail Event” for the OBSERVER Newspaper, otherwise my friends would think I’m crazy too. It was Very interesting meeting all the folks and speaking with them on the line, from all over the world, Students, Athletes, Faculty, Retirees… Everyone wanting Apple’s first retina display iPhone. By 1:00pm I entered the Apple Store for two AT&T iPhones, and 30 minutes later I was on my way with the latest and greatest, plus a story published in the evening newspaper and TV.

ğŸŽ Apple Retail Grand Weekend Event likely September 19, 2014 should be huge, as industry experts predict that of the 550,000,000 iPhone users from the iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S 5C, on average 35% of these Apple iPhone users have reported to an industry survey they are moving forward to the iPhone 6 or 6L because of the new technology and the larger display. If this survey is valid, Apple may experience a virtual Tsunami of iPhone 6 Sales, setting retail records for the release of a consumer product.

ğŸŽ 46% of iPhone 3G users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 43% of iPhone 4 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 40% of iPhone 4S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 36% of iPhone 5 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 24% of iPhone 5S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 15% of iPhone 5C users are upgrading to iPhone 6

ğŸŽ 35% of Android Users will Migrate to the iPhone 6 mostly turning in their Galaxy Samsung, LG, HTC, Microsoft smartphones. There are other sales influences. Another major personal electronics surveyor made inquiries to 30,000 users of smartphones using the Android Operating System. This survey was conducted because of the apparent high level of vulnerability of Android smartphones due to an extensive Fragmentation issue.

ğŸŽ Android Fragmentation is caused by Android users refusing to update their operating system to the most current KitKat version, presently adopted by only 20% of their user base, for fear of having their Apps, the smartphone, or both to Freeze.

ğŸŽ Conversely, in perspective and context, over 90% of Apple iOS iPhone users have already updated to iOS7 or greater. Both of these Operating Systems (KitKat and iOS7) were released the same week in September, 2013. Accordingly, the Android user survey indicated that 35% of Android Users are Migrating to Apple’s iPhone 6 once its released.

1⃣ Join the Excitement at your Apple retail store, but get there early say 5am in most Cities, as the Apple stores may be Sold-Out by 1pm. Admittedly, I got to the Town Center Mall at 5:30am, where there were already 500 folks standing on line waiting for the 8am store opening. Lots of Media and Police for security. I finally entered the Apple Store at Noon, and they were running out of all the 16GB version iPhone 5 models

2⃣ Join the Excitement at your AT&T retail store (or Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) but get there early by 5am in most Cities, as these stores may be Sold-Out fast likely by 11am. AT&T opened at 8:00am, my turn came to enter the store at 9am, received my iPhone 5S and was done by 9:30

3⃣ No Excitement: Order the iPhone 6 On-Line ASAP when its made available. You will receive your iPhone 6 with a guaranteed delivery on 9/19/2014 by UPS directly from Apple’s manufacturing contractor FOXconn, from 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 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.

Apple iPhone Generates Unprecedented Customer Excitement as Millions of Folks Globally Lineup at Apple Retail Stores awaiting the New iPhone 6 ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

ğŸŽ How does Apple iPhone Generate Unprecedented Customer Excitement as Millions of Folks Globally Lineup at Apple Retail Stores awaiting the New iPhone 6 PLUS an authentic iPhone 6 Sneak Peek.

ğŸŽ PLUS Everything You Need to Know about Apple’s Tuesday Media Event in 7 Days for iPhone 6 & 6L ~ Event Date 9/9/2014 @ 1pm Est ~ On Sale Friday 9/19 @ 8AM Eastern.

ğŸŽ Battle of the iPhone 6 Rumors is in Full Bloom, now that we are only 5 days before Apple’s Media Event of September 9th. Apple iPhone Generates Unprecedented Customer Excitement as Millions of folks Globally lineup at Apple Retail Stores awaiting the New iPhone 6. Some folks join the line many days before Apple Announces their New Products, (September 9) and many more step up, days before Apple actually receives the shipment the new iPhones into their retail stores (September 19). Apple is anal about keeping everything in strict secrecy. The Apple retail store employees are not permitted to even see the boxed iPhone, except for the hour of the Store Opening on “Release DAY.” Even with all of Apple’s attempts to veil the iPhone 6 in secrecy, the rumor-mill is jammed with supposedly authentic images, scree shots, etc.

ğŸŽ Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap has Solved its component issues, Solved its manufacturing problems relating to the production of the iPhone 6 and its big brother the iPhone 6L with its 5.5″ display. What makes the Apple products so appealing is their incredible attention to the most minute design element, externally, and internally. This attention to detail gives the unmistakable mark of Quality, generally seen only in the most expensive Laboratory Equipment.


ğŸŽ What is truly Crazy about Folks lining up outside the NYC Apple Retail Store at 57th and 5th Ave. Apple Madness at this early date, 9/4/2014, with the new Apple iPhone 6 not been officially announced, expected on Tuesday 9/9 at 1pm Eastern.

ğŸŽ What makes this frenzie Extra Crazy, is Apple will not releasing their New iPhone 6 until Friday 9/19 assuming Apple follows their usual time-gap to have products delivered to their Retail Stores. Therefore, these folks lined up have likely 15 Days before they can enter the Store for the New iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ Admittedly, in 2010 yours truly got up really early like 4:30am, got dressed and arrived at the Apple Retail Store at the Boca Raton Town Center Mall at 5:15am with my Wallet, my Camera and my Note-pad.

ğŸŽ Not Only did Marilyn and I want the new iPhone 4 smartphones, I was asked to cover this “Retail Event” for the OBSERVER Newspaper, otherwise my friends would think I’m crazy too. It was Very interesting meeting all the folks and speaking with them on the line, from all over the world, Students, Athletes, Faculty, Retirees… Everyone wanting Apple’s first retina display iPhone. By 1:00pm I entered the Apple Store for two AT&T iPhones, and 30 minutes later I was on my way with the latest and greatest, plus a story published in the evening newspaper and TV.

ğŸŽ Apple Retail Grand Weekend Event likely September 19, 2014 should be huge, as industry experts predict that of the 550,000,000 iPhone users from the iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S 5C, on average 35% of these Apple iPhone users have reported to an industry survey they are moving forward to the iPhone 6 or 6L because of the new technology and the larger display. If this survey is valid, Apple may experience a virtual Tsunami of iPhone 6 Sales, setting retail records for the release of a consumer product.

ğŸŽ 46% of iPhone 3G users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 43% of iPhone 4 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 40% of iPhone 4S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 36% of iPhone 5 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 24% of iPhone 5S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 15% of iPhone 5C users are upgrading to iPhone 6

ğŸŽ 35% of Android Users will Migrate to the iPhone 6 mostly turning in their Galaxy Samsung, LG, HTC, Microsoft smartphones. There are other sales influences. Another major personal electronics surveyor made inquiries to 30,000 users of smartphones using the Android Operating System. This survey was conducted because of the apparent high level of vulnerability of Android smartphones due to an extensive Fragmentation issue.

ğŸŽ Android Fragmentation is caused by Android users refusing to update their operating system to the most current KitKat version, presently adopted by only 20% of their user base, for fear of having their Apps, the smartphone, or both to Freeze.

ğŸŽ Conversely, in perspective and context, over 90% of Apple iOS iPhone users have already updated to iOS7 or greater. Both of these Operating Systems (KitKat and iOS7) were released the same week in September, 2013. Accordingly, the Android user survey indicated that 35% of Android Users are Migrating to Apple’s iPhone 6 once its released.

1⃣ Join the Excitement at your Apple retail store, but get there early say 5am in most Cities, as the Apple stores may be Sold-Out by 1pm. Admittedly, I got to the Town Center Mall at 5:30am, where there were already 500 folks standing on line waiting for the 8am store opening. Lots of Media and Police for security. I finally entered the Apple Store at Noon, and they were running out of all the 16GB version iPhone 5 models

2⃣ Join the Excitement at your AT&T retail store (or Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) but get there early by 5am in most Cities, as these stores may be Sold-Out fast likely by 11am. AT&T opened at 8:00am, my turn came to enter the store at 9am, received my iPhone 5S and was done by 9:30

3⃣ No Excitement: Order the iPhone 6 On-Line ASAP when its made available. You will receive your iPhone 6 with a guaranteed delivery on 9/19/2014 by UPS directly from Apple’s manufacturing contractor FOXconn, from 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 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 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.

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.

ğŸŽ Apple 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 is a legitimate product rumor as now several others are touting this Apple New Product, the iPad Pro.

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. Folks that know me are aware that I do 95% of everything I do on my iPad mini. However, if Apple delivers a super-charged 12.9″ iPad retina, I’ll be in great shape to do my image editing.

ğŸŽ APPLE Please take Note: The one thing that I miss from the iOS7 world is the lack of a real-file system, where I can find, search, retrieve particular FILE or Image. Presently I have to recall which APP was used to create or edit a file, then I have to go to that APP to find the File or Image

ğŸŽ Apple delivering larger 12.9″ display is a perfect size to compete with 13″, 14″, 15″ laptops and many desktop computers, yet maintain the minimalistic footprint, plus the likely coupling to a LOGITECH UltraThin bluetooth Keyboard.

ğŸŽ Think about it, a large display iPad with an amazingly fast full featured iOS8, relatively inexpensive touch-screen design, coupled with a voluminous inventory of Application Software Apps, all optimized for Apple’s 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 common 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 that may be 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 perhaps October, 2014.

ğŸŽ Apple is reportedly is 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 may be built with a 4K resolution would likely 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 likely 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.

ğŸŽ 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 Pro, 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-pro with a huge 12.9″ maxi-display.

ğŸŽ Using an exterior similar to the MacBook Air’s foot-print, the iPad Pro 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 like LOGITECH and CLAMCASE.

ğŸŽ The iPas Pro 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 Pro is a super-charged robust iPad, as many more Windows PC’ers would migrate to Apple; Conversly, If you want a more compact device the iPad Air 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-Pro 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 iPad Air 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 LTEx, LTE, 4G and 3G Cellular, optional $130 radio package to the WiFi a/b/g/n/ac bands

🔷 faster Processor say 3GHz, 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.

🔷 Improved Mathematics & Calculating capacity and VIDEO processing engine 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 128GB, 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 may 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 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.

 

Definition of Crazy Excited – Folks on Line at Apple Retail Stores 6 Days before Apple Announces their New Products – iPhone 6 & 6L ğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽğŸŽ

ğŸŽ Plus an iPhone 6 Sneak Peek ~ Authentic Look ! PLUS Everything You Need to Know about Apple’s Tuesday Media Event in 7 Days for iPhone 6 & 6L ~ Event Date 9/9/2014 @ 1pm Est ~ On Sale Friday 9/19 @ 8AM Eastern.

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

ğŸŽ Definition of Crazy Excited – Folks on Line at Apple Retail Stores 6 Days before Apple Announces their New Products – iPhone 6 & 6L, and a full 16 days before Apple receives the new iPhones into their retail stores.

ğŸŽ Apple’s “iPhone 6″ roadmap has Solved its component issues, Solved its manufacturing problems relating to the production of the iPhone 6 and its big brother the iPhone 6L with its 5.5″ display.

ğŸŽ What is truly Crazy about Folks lining up outside the NYC Apple Retail Store at 57th and 5th Ave, at this early date, 9/3/2014 is the new Apple iPhone 6 has not been officially announced, expected on Tuesday 9/9 at 1pm Eastern. What makes this Extra Crazy is Apple will not releasing their New iPhone 6 until Friday 9/19 assuming Apple follows their usual time-gap to have products delivered to their Retail Stores. Therefore, these folks lined up have likely 16 Days before they can enter the Store for the New iPhone 6.

ğŸŽ Admittedly, in 2010 yours truly got up really early like 4:30am, got dressed and arrived at the Apple Retail Store at the Boca Raton Town Center Mall at 5:15am with my Wallet, my Camera and my Note-pad. Not Only did Marilyn and I want the new iPhone 4 smartphones, I was asked to cover this “Retail Event” for the OBSERVER Newspaper, otherwise my friends would think I’m crazy too. It was Very interesting meeting all the folks and speaking with them on the line, from all over the world, Students, Athletes, Faculty, Retirees… Everyone wanting Apple’s first retina display iPhone. By 1:00pm I entered the Apple Store for two AT&T iPhones, and 30 minutes later I was on my way with the latest and greatest, plus a story published in the evening newspaper and TV.

ğŸŽ Apple Retail Grand Weekend Event likely September 19, 2014 should be huge, as industry experts predict that of the 550,000,000 iPhone users from the iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S 5C, on average 35% of these Apple iPhone users have reported to an industry survey they are moving forward to the iPhone 6 or 6L because of the new technology and the larger display. If this survey is valid, Apple may experience a virtual Tsunami of iPhone 6 Sales, setting retail records for the release of a consumer product.

ğŸŽ 46% of iPhone 3G users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 43% of iPhone 4 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 40% of iPhone 4S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 36% of iPhone 5 users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 24% of iPhone 5S users are upgrading to iPhone 6
ğŸŽ 15% of iPhone 5C users are upgrading to iPhone 6

ğŸŽ 35% of Android Users will Migrate to the iPhone 6 mostly turning in their Galaxy Samsung, LG, HTC, Microsoft smartphones. There are other sales influences. Another major personal electronics surveyor made inquiries to 30,000 users of smartphones using the Android Operating System. This survey was conducted because of the apparent high level of vulnerability of Android smartphones due to an extensive Fragmentation issue.

ğŸŽ Android Fragmentation is caused by Android users refusing to update their operating system to the most current KitKat version, presently adopted by only 20% of their user base, for fear of having their Apps, the smartphone, or both to Freeze.

ğŸŽ Conversely, in perspective and context, over 90% of Apple iOS iPhone users have already updated to iOS7 or greater. Both of these Operating Systems (KitKat and iOS7) were released the same week in September, 2013. Accordingly, the Android user survey indicated that 35% of Android Users are Migrating to Apple’s iPhone 6 once its released.

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.

Several ways to get your new iPhone 6

1⃣ Join the Excitement at your Apple retail store, but get there early say 5am in most Cities, as the Apple stores may be Sold-Out by 1pm. Admittedly, I got to the Town Center Mall at 5:30am, where there were already 500 folks standing on line waiting for the 8am store opening. Lots of Media and Police for security. I finally entered the Apple Store at Noon, and they were running out of all the 16GB version iPhone 5 models

2⃣ Join the Excitement at your AT&T retail store (or Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) but get there early by 5am in most Cities, as these stores may be Sold-Out fast likely by 11am. AT&T opened at 8:00am, my turn came to enter the store at 9am, received my iPhone 5S and was done by 9:30

3⃣ No Excitement: Order the iPhone 6 On-Line ASAP when its made available. You will receive your iPhone 6 with a guaranteed delivery on 9/19/2014 by UPS directly from Apple’s manufacturing contractor FOXconn, from 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

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.

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.

Several ways to get your new iPhone 6

1⃣ Join the Excitement at your Apple retail store, but get there early say 5am in most Cities, as the Apple stores may be Sold-Out by 1pm. Admittedly, I got to the Town Center Mall at 5:30am, where there were already 500 folks standing on line waiting for the 8am store opening. Lots of Media and Police for security. I finally entered the Apple Store at Noon, and they were running out of all the 16GB version iPhone 5 models

2⃣ Join the Excitement at your AT&T retail store (or Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) but get there early by 5am in most Cities, as these stores may be Sold-Out fast likely by 11am. AT&T opened at 8:00am, my turn came to enter the store at 9am, received my iPhone 5S and was done by 9:30

3⃣ No Excitement: Order the iPhone 6 On-Line ASAP when its made available. You will receive your iPhone 6 with a guaranteed delivery on 9/19/2014 by UPS directly from Apple’s manufacturing contractor FOXconn, from 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.

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 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

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

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.

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.

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 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.

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
