Now here's one of those reports that won't exactly come as a surprise: It's late June and Apple suppliers in mainland China are said to be recruiting new hires to assemble Cupertino's latest smartphone.
Rumors about Apple products — and reliable ones, at that — have become so common in the last couple of years that we know almost entirely what to expect when an event like WWDC comes around. Apple's had enough of it, apparently, and rightly so. Today Sonny Dickson (long a reporter of trustworthy Apple rumors himself) announced that this stream of information might be coming to an end, thanks to increased efforts on the part of both Apple and Chinese authorities.
Former Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts has only been at the helm of Apple Retail for three short weeks, but a new report claims the latest veep plans to shake up the future of Cupertino's brick-and-mortar stores in a number of ways.
Near-field communication (NFC) has wound up in a lot of Android devices over the last few years, enabling retail shoppers to pay with a tap. With each passing year, Apple has been rumored to finally adopt such technology, so it should come as little surprise to see it surface again in 2014.
If the latest rumors from China are correct, we may be getting the iWatch on our wrists a lot more quickly than anticipated. As reported by the Economic Daily News, Apple's long-rumored piece of wearable tech will be built by Quanta Computer of Taiwan, who'll be manufacturing 65 million units at first. And we could see it as early as August.
It's April Fool's Day again, and that means internet users will be subjected to 24 hours of pranks, fake product announcements and other generally annoying (but ultimately harmless) mayhem. We like to laugh and have fun just like the next guy, but have decided to sit out the tomfoolery this year and present you a fool-free news recap... well, except maybe for the story about Ryan Seacrest's company, anyway...
It's that time of the iPhone development cycle again. The alleged first images of the prototype for the new iPhone 6 are gracing the pages of MacRumors today, and yes, they're shot in the same blurry style normally reserved for shots of UFOs and Bigfoot. The pics came in from an anonymous source on Twitter, and according to Sonny Dickson (who sent out some of the best pre-release photos of the iPhone 5s), they originate from a source in China.
