Here’s one technical challenge that the iDevice maker will have to face as it strives to make its next-generation iPhones thinner.
Apple is expected to launch its next-generation flagship iPhones later this year. The devices represent “new number” devices, which means that we can expect a new or enhanced industrial design along with upgrades to critical components, such as the display.
Indeed, the iDevice maker had long been known for its best-in-class mobile displays, yet DisplayMate’s Raymond Soneira says that its current iPhone displays are “well behind the display curve.”
Apple has the opportunity to try to regain display leadership with the iPhone 7 generation of devices. However, after one crucial bit of information about the device was leaked, it’s clear that Apple’s job is going to get a whole lot tougher.
Last week Apple releases iOS 8.1.1 for devices including the iPhone 6 Plus. This is our iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8.1.1 review after using this small, but important update for a week we’re ready to help you decide if it is worth installing on the iPhone 6 Plus.
The new iOS 8 update is a bug fix update, aimed at making iOS 8 run smoother on a variety of devices and it does just that. We’ve noticed several fixes for common iOS 8.1 and iOS 8 problems on the iOS 8.1.1 update. This comes two months after the iOS 8 release and the iPhone 6 Plus release delivered a fairly buggy iPhone experience.
Apple fixed some of these problems in iOS 8.1, but the iOS 8.1.1 update finally knocks out the landscape bug that drove us crazy for the last two months and fixes to other problems.
The story goes like this: A Verizon customer was sent a prototype iPhone 6 when renewing their contract and instead of returning it, the owner has decided to sell it on eBay.
The alleged prototype device is pictured in diagnostic mode and isn’t running the consumer release of iOS, instead offering Apple’s internal applications the company uses to test devices before release. The photos of this factory test mode match up with previously leaked prototype devices running earlier versions of the test software.
