As it has for the last several years, Apple published the results of its annual supplier responsibility for 2013 this week, which puts a specific spotlight on the tantalum used in the manufacturing process.
It seems like every week a new rumor (or three) about what Apple may be up to surfaces, but few of them come with the credibility of today's Wall Street Journal report claiming bigger iOS devices could be in the works.
While Apple recently started shipping Lightning connector adapters to waiting customers, many iPhone 5 users have wondered when they can snag some possibly lower-cost, third-party alternatives. One source claims Apple will host a conference in China early next month for accessory partners, imparting details on policy changes affecting Lightning-ready products.
Just a month ago, we were all still speculating about the iPhone 5. Of course, pretty much every single rumor about the device panned out on September 21. But at the end of August, there was some concern over Apple's display suppliers being able to keep up with the huge consumer demand. According to new report, it seems Sharp may have indeed stumbled, but are now chugging right along.
