According to a report from The Korea Herald this morning surrounding both Apple’s upcoming iPhone and the rumored Samsung Galaxy S5, the iPhone 6 will sport a new bezel-free display when it launches later this year. While most of the report focused on the Samsung side of things, it was mentioned that the iPhone 6 will be similar to the future Galaxy phone in this way, and that the next iPhone will also of course be shipping with Touch ID.

iTunes is generally regarded as something of hobby for Apple. After all, the program and the team behind it don’t release hardware devices, which is generally what Apple is known for. However, the iTunes group within Apple is growing, and is responsible for a massive amount of revenue in comparison to any other company. Horace Dediu takes some time to analyze the numbers: (more…)
After being a headline feature in iOS 7, iTunes Radio is expanding its worldwide presence. The service is now available in Australia, and it should soon be available elsewhere. iTunes Radio is comparable with Pandora or other streaming online radio apps. It’s built into the music app on every iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch with iOS 7.
The iWatch is real, according to various people, but it may not be as advanced as earlier reports and mockups — likely based on little to no real information — may have suggested.

If there’s any one feature that i’ve seen requested over and over agin since the early days of the iPhone–that Apple has yet to deliver on–it’s this one. Much like our Macs and PCs have a guest account for use by, well, guests, the iPhone should be able to provide access to certain apps (designated by the owner) without a passcode, right?
