Watch this ultra-thin iPhone 6 concept video

A video concept of the so-called “iPhone 6″ has been posted to YouTube by user ConceptsiPhone, and the mockup device looks absolutely gorgeous. With a new-and-improved Lightning port, stereo sound and a mini auxiliary port, the next-generation smartphone somehow provides an ultra-thin design and 10-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Additionally, the device has edge-to-edge glass with no bezels on the left or right. The concept most closely resembles what an iPhone and HTC One hybrid smartphone would look like unified, and the traditional color lineup of space grey, silver and gold is still offered. And, of course, it is running iOS 7.

Will you buy the iPhone 6 if rumors hold true?

121120_galaxynoteII_074

Android is not usually the hottest topic for conversation within Apple communities, but it is still important to keep an eye on what competitors like Samsung are working on behind closed doors. In the midst of rumors that Apple is planning to release larger-screen iPhones at some point this year, a new report from the Korean Herald (via GSMArena) suggests that its South Korean rival has been preparing a new device of its own — the Galaxy S5.

It is far from the first time that we’ve heard about the oft-rumored Galaxy S5, which would eventually replace the existing S4 model as Samsung’s flagship device in its smartphone lineup.

Apple rumored to launch large-sized iPhone and iPad in 2014

iPhone 5 iPad 4If you still believe in the credibility of Taiwanese blog DigiTimes, which has a mixed track record at reporting rumors, expect for Apple to release both larger-sized iPhones and iPads next year.

According to the report, the larger iPhone will arrive in May with unspecified screen dimensions. The iPhone 5s has a 4-inch screen, while competitors such as Samsung and Sony have gone above 5-inches with their smartphones.

The report claims that a 12.9-inch iPad will follow suit in October, although a 13.3-inch screen has also been rumored. The tablet will be manufactured by Quanta Computer, and there is a possibility it will replace the 11-inch MacBook Air in Apple’s product lineup. The more credible Wall Street Journal reported in July that Apple was testing larger screens for its iOS devices, although it was unclear if those designs would be pushed to market.

AllThingsD: Apple will host a fall event on October 22nd

2013-08-15 14_31_11-iPhone _ iPod touch Wallpapers of the Day (Aug 15)_ Apples & Rainbows _ iPad, iP

AllThingsD, a publication with an amazing track record for Apple-related announcements, is today reporting that an iPad event will take place on October 22nd. The event will almost certainly involve new iPads, an update to iOS 7, and probably new Macs and other software releases, including Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

People familiar with Apple’s plans tell AllThingsD that the company will hold its next invitation-only event on Tuesday, October 22. The focal point of the gathering will be the latest updates to the company’s iPad line, but the new Mac Pro and OS X Mavericks will likely get some stage time as well, I’m told.

Rumor: Apple to Introduce New iPad on October 15th

iPad-4G-Fourth-Gen-LightningApple is rumored to hold its next media event on Tuesday, October 15th, according to French website MacGeneration. At the event, which should take place in San Francisco, Apple is expected to unveil its next-generation iPad and potentially new Macs or other products.

In particular, the fifth-generation iPad is expected to have a thinner bezel akin to the iPad mini. If there are new Macs released, they are very likely to be updated with Intel’s latest Haswell processors. OS X Mavericks, which is expected in late October, should be preinstalled on these machines.

If this rumor proves true, it would be consecutive years that Apple has both a September event for iPhone and October event for iPad. Last year, the company introduced the iPhone 5 in September and followed up with the fourth-generation iPad and smaller iPad mini in October.
