It's not too late in the day for a little rumor talk. Engadget is reporting that the upcoming Apple TV will lose the previously rumored 1080p playback ability, but will gain a slew of its own kind of apps. Also, Apple TV is ditching its former name, as it will now be referred to as iTV.
The new set top box should cost $99 and come equipped with the same innards as the iPhone 4, as well as 16GB of flash storage and a new iTunes streaming service. Which is great, but what's the deal with no 1080i or 1080p video? Instead, it will only be able to handle 720p clips. It's alleged that the iPhone 4's A4 processor isn't enough to handle the output of such high resolution video, which makes us a little teary eyed.
Your next iPad or iPhone may be incredibly powerful and energy efficient. Texas Instruments and ARM have joined forces to collaborate on the next generation of ARM Cortex A-series processors--code named Eagle. Though both companies are keeping their lips sealed about the inner workings of the chip, the two hope that they can raise the bar for the next iteration of mobile processors.
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: Apple’s iPhone is finally coming to Verizon Wireless, ending years of oppressive exclusivity with AT&T and its less than popular wireless network. Except this time, there appears to be some concrete evidence to support the claim, rather than just the word of analysts on Wall Street.
A new analyst report claims that Apple could release new products in September. Among the new refreshes are a new iPod touch, new iPod nanos, and two new models of Apple's ultra-portable MacBook Air notebook. There have been multiple rumors surrounding a new iPod touch with a FaceTime camera, complementing Apple's ever changing product lineup.
Oh, those nutty case manufacturers and their product leaks which drive Apple so crazy! With the iPad and the iPhone 4 launch behind us, the rumor mill is churning with news of what the fourth generation iPod touch may look like -- and here’s a reportedly “reliable” leak that may hold the answer.
It's that time again! What goodies will we get from Apple in the upcoming year? We never really know until Job's makes his announcements, but today iLounge has put together an impressive set of speculations. We know--it's all just rumors, nothing to get too excited about--but it's always fun to play the guessing game. Here's the rundown of what iLounge thinks is up:
We've heard it all--the white iPhone 4 has been delayed because it's harder to make a white phone than a black phone, because of an antenna issue, because of a light leak, and because of a little bit of extra press coverage in the form of a salacious photo leak. Well, now we've got yet another rumor to add to the group.
Best Buy is allegedly tacking on free invisibleSHIELD 4Fix films to iPhone 4 customers complaining about iPhone 4 reception problems. The invisibleSHIELD is really only supposed to cover the front and back of the handheld, though this package also includes transparent films that you affix to your iPhone 4's anttena band. How this prevents iPhone 4 reception loss is anyone's guess.
iPhone 4 users, there may be a solution for your proximity sensor issues. The iOS 4.1 Beta 2 is rumored to be the big update that Steve Jobs promised us at the Apple iPhone 4 press conference weeks ago. But of course, this not based on any concrete evidence, just sheer speculation.
Prior to 2007, Apple was releasing iLife updates annually at Macworld, but they seem to have pushed that back to every year and a half since then. That means it’s about time to cue those iLife ’11 rumors, which could be available in less than two weeks.
