SAN FRANCISCO — Apple unveiled new iPhones at an event on Wednesday, as it has done every September for the last few years.
The event, held in San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, was the company’s most important outing of the year. Even as the iPhone remains the outsize producer of Apple’s revenue and profit, sales of the smartphone have recently been declining. So more than ever, the onus is on Apple to keep up excitement for the gadget.
What was different this time was that people were focused on something that the new iPhones lack, rather than a flashy new feature. The item that disappeared is the traditional headphone jack, with Apple turning people toward wireless headphones instead.
Brian X. Chen, Farhad Manjoo and Katie Benner were at the event to provide live analysis of what you need to know about the announcements, not what you don’t.
Here’s what Apple announced:
■ New iPhones, called the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
■ The new iPhones lack a headphone jack.
■ The new iPhones have a revised home button with force sensitivity, which will vibrate to give feedback.
■ The iPhones are water-resistant.
■ The Plus model of the new iPhone includes a dual-lens camera to take professional-grade photos.
■ A new Apple Watch, called Apple Watch Series 2, which includes GPS.
■ Pokémon Go is available for Apple Watch.
■ An update on how Apple Music is performing.
■ Tweaks to its iWork suite of productivity apps.

The Big Picture

Farhad: This was a tricky event because there wasn’t much new to the products. The iPhone has the same design as last year’s (and the one the year before) and the major new thing is … a missing headphone jack. So what I was watching for was Apple’s reality distortion field: How will Apple’s C.E.O., Tim Cook, and friends convince us that taking away a feature is really an advance for the iPhone?
Brian: As Farhad said, the new iPhones — and also the Watches — look largely the same as their predecessors. The takeaway for me was that Apple focused on making the most significant changes to the tiniest components: camera sensors, upgraded chips, a revised home button and the addition of GPS to the watch. I get the impression that they are saving the big changes for the 10th anniversary of the iPhone next year.
So if consumers can hold off a year for the next iPhone, I’d encourage them to wait. But for owners of iPhones that are at least two years old, these are going to be major upgrades — if you find a way to cope with the lack of a headphone jack.
Katie: Apple didn’t offer a new killer product or a drastic update to any of the products in its lineup. Instead, Apple piled on new features — like water-resistance, stereo speakers, wireless headphones and camera features — to appeal to specific niche buyers. Frank Gillett at Forrester Research called this strategy an accumulation of compelling new features that Apple hopes will “motivate the trend followers to buy new iPhones, and expose other buyers to the benefits they’ve built into iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2.”
Perhaps more important, Apple was trying to cobble together a credible story for the future from these incremental moves — that a wireless world is coming and that it will be the leader in that world.
Farhad: Apple likes road maps. That’s what you saw today. The company clearly has deep, long-term plans for the iPhone — it wants to improve wireless functioning, it wants to keep pushing on the camera, and it will keep improving performance without sacrificing battery life.
The problem for Apple is that the steps along the way to achieving its goals aren’t always that exciting. This is one of those years: There are lots of incremental improvements, but nothing stands out as a must-have. Someday, Apple is telling us, all these increments will add up to something unimaginably amazing. Right now, though, the moves look puzzling — we really did not get a good defense for removing the headphone jack — and we may just have to live with the confusion.

Software and Services

Katie: For the past few quarters, Apple has emphasized that services and software will drive growth as iPhone revenue ebbs. At Wednesday’s event, Mr. Cook underlined that. He kicked off the morning with updates on two of the company’s most important software and services divisions — Apple Music and the App Store.
“We’ve always had a deep love for music,” Mr. Cook said. “It inspires us, and it’s a key part of our product experience.”
Mr. Cook said the company had 17 million subscribers after about a year for Apple Music and added that the music service would be the “premier destination for exclusive music,” nodding to the idea that the company will use its huge war chest to lock up deals with artists.
Brian: In another nod to software, Mr. Cook said Super Mario is coming to the App Store. Nintendo, the struggling video game company, long refused to offer its games and franchise characters on mobile devices, but the company recently did a 180, with Pokémon Go as a recent example. The change seems more beneficial to Nintendo than to Apple. Pokémon Go was a huge success, at least initially, proving that app stores are a viable revenue stream for Nintendo beyond its consoles.

Apple also announced a new version of iWork, its suite of productivity apps that rival Microsoft Office and Google’s productivity apps. The tweaked version of iWork will include real-time collaboration, meaning multiple people can work on documents and presentation slides at the same time. It’s good that these changes are coming to iWork, but Microsoft and Google have been offering real-time collaboration tools for years already.
Farhad: The education market has been important to Apple for decades, and for the last few years it has pushed the iPad as the perfect school computer. It did so again today, with those tweaks to its iWork software aimed at schools.
But Apple has lately faced more competition from rivals, especially Google, whose cheap and simple Chromebook has become one of the most-used machines at schools. For both companies — and lately for other tech rivals, including Amazon — the education market functions as a gateway. Get them early, win them for life.

Apple Watch

Brian: The new Apple Watch is called Apple Watch Series 2. It emphasizes fitness and health, with Apple showing a video of runners, gymnasts and swimmers using the watch. One major criticism of Apple Watch was that it did a bit of everything and did not have any strengths. Apple is trying to beef up the fitness capabilities, similar to Fitbit. The new version is water-resistant up to 50 meters (164 feet). It also includes GPS for tracking runs. The watch is faster than the previous version.
Katie: Whether Apple Watch has been successful or not has largely been a mystery. Apple doesn’t break out Watch revenue in its earnings. But Mr. Cook pulled back the curtain a little when he revealed that Apple is now the No. 2 global watch brand, measured by revenue, behind Rolex. The Apple Watch is also the top-selling smartwatch, even though a killer app has yet to emerge for the watch. The company is hoping to change that with the introduction of a Pokémon Go app for the watch.
Brian: It’s important to note that Apple Watch sales don’t appear to be growing much. IDC, the research firm, estimates that Apple Watch market share in the wearables market shrank 56.7 percent last quarter compared to the same period last year. That’s largely because consumers have probably been waiting for a new version to come out before deciding whether to buy a watch. It’s definitely still a nascent device.
Farhad: This is the first Apple event in a few years that didn’t feature any redesigned hardware. But there is a new ceramic finish for the Watch that comes closest to some new design.
The gleaming white finish is in some ways a return to the past for Apple. (Remember all those white computers from the early 2000s?) But beyond that, it’s always interesting when Apple discovers a new material for use in its devices. You usually notice some new process or material start in one product and then wend its way throughout the company’s lineup over a few years’ time. In other words, three years from now, we may have all-white, ceramic phones. A man can dream, anyway.
Brian: For now, my advice to consumers: I see no compelling reason for people with Version One of the device to upgrade unless they are fitness buffs.
The addition of GPS gives the Apple Watch a slight edge against Fitbit’s Blaze, a comparable smartwatch that lacks GPS. But until we get to try the software, it’s tough to tell how the new Apple Watch’s fitness capabilities will compare to accessories from Fitbit. Fitbit’s products are popular partly because the apps are so well designed for monitoring health statistics, including footsteps, calories and weight. So GPS isn’t necessarily the magic bullet.

The iPhone

Katie: Leading up to the event, the most ballyhooed update was Apple’s decision to eliminate the headphone jack. On Wednesday, Phil Schiller, Apple’s marketing chief, saved that announcement for last.
Removing the port for standard headphones means users now have to connect their headphones to the iPhone through the charging port.
“From the start we designed Lightning to be a great digital audio connector,” Mr. Schiller said.
The update may have its detractors in the days after the announcement, but Apple has a long history of making hardware changes that the industry eventually follows, including the decision to change floppy disk sizes in the old Mac days and, more recently, the decision to take away laptop ports. Apple will include new Lightning earbuds, and an adapter, in the box.
Why remove the headphone jack, a technology that people seem to like? Mr. Schiller summed it up in one word: “Courage.”
Farhad: Apple said the most important reason it’s removing the headphone jack is because it believes in a “wireless future” for audio. It’s making that future a reality with a new set of wireless headphones, called AirPods. They look like Apple’s wired earbuds, without the wires; they apparently just slip in your ears.

Perhaps more important than the earbuds themselves is the wireless technology Apple is using to power them. The company is using Bluetooth, and Apple says its chips improve the technology by connecting faster and using less power. If Apple has perfected a new, proprietary way of doing this, it could prove an important innovation for lots of future wireless products, including home devices, cars and wearables.
Brian: Jony Ive, Apple’s design chief, said in a video at the event that we are “just at the beginning of a truly wireless future.” But wireless earphones have been around for years, and Bluetooth wireless technology has become excellent. This is another example of Apple’s being a latecomer to a market and saying it will make a better product than earlier ones.
Farhad: The reality distortion was in force in other ways. In true Apple fashion, we got a deep-dive video into the development process for the iPhone 7, with not even a nod to the fact that the phone looks nearly identical to the one Apple released last year and the one the year before. Because it has a new color and a new Apple logo, Apple insists it’s “a beautiful new design.”
I’m sure there are minor differences — the antenna band is different — but it seems too rich to call it a new design. Too rich, except for Apple.
One area where I do give Apple points on the iPhone is the focus on the camera. Apple made a strategic decision a few years ago to plow a lot of development resources into the iPhone camera. That has paid off: The iPhone’s camera has long surpassed most other smartphone cameras, and for many people, it’s better than most stand-alone cameras. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus continue that trend. The Plus model features two cameras, which allows for super-zooming. Even the smaller phone’s camera includes features to improve your snapshots. If the pictures Apple showed off are any guide, the iPhone’s camera is fast closing in on all but the most high-end of cameras. Look forward to more of those “Shot on iPhone” billboards./nytimes.com

It appeared we knew everything about the upcoming iPhone 7. But might we have to think again regarding its most controversial omission?
According to credible Japanese site Mac Otakara, Apple AAPL +1.15% had a last minute change of heart and decided it will include a headphone jack on both the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.

In this site’s own words:
“At Computex Taipei 2016, many manufacturers showcased their new Lightning audio adaptors, and it seems there has been rumors that the headphones to be included with the new iPhone 7 series will still come with its own headphone jack as usual, and that a Lightning headphone jack adaptor will also be included in the package.”
Interestingly, Mac Otakara also backs up the recent talk of a second set of speakers being added to the top of the phone. The site claims this will be a “monaural system” – aka single channel mono, as opposed to stereo output.
Lastly it also reiterates that 256GB is likely to be the new top of the range storage system, though hopefully the biggest consequence of this would be finally putting the base level 16GB option out to pasture in favour of 32/128/256GB tiers. Fingers crossed.
Previous iPhone 7 leaked cases confirmed a dual speaker arrangement with no place for the headphone jack and an otherwise virtually identical design to the iPhone 6S. Image credit: MacRumors 
My take? My own sources have not heard news of an Apple headphone jack U-turn, but given the company tests multiple variants of its upcoming iPhones each year it can’t be ruled out that models with and without the headphone jack are still being put through their paces.
That said Apple must be close to a decision. iPhones sell at such a scale that production needs to be ramped up 2-3 months in advance, which is right about now. As such I suspect the supply chain links which will inevitably appear next month should give us a definitive answer.
Personally I hope Mac Otakara is right, but even if the headphone jack is kept for the iPhone 7 I can’t see it remaining when the far more radical iPhone 8 appears next year… / Source

Iphone_6_space_grey-21 

Apple's manufacturers have reportedly started production on the next-generation iPhones, and they're apparently bringing over Force Touch pressure-sensitive screens from the Apple Watch.
According to a Bloomberg report, manufacturing is already underway and will ramp up even more in July.
Apple typically releases an iPhone hardware update in late September, so the news falls in line with the company's established rhythm. The next-generation device is presumed to be called the iPhone 6S.

 



Force Touch, a feature new to Apple's MacBook and the Apple Watch, makes the screen sensitive to varying levels of pressure, so it can tell whether you're tapping lightly or pressing firmly. The new feature would make certain actions on the phone easier to pull off, like pressing firmly when you want to drop a pin in Maps. The report indicates Apple has been working to build pressure sensitivity into the iPhone's display for two years. The next iPhones will likely look the same as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Because it is an "S" year for iPhones, Apple is expected to pack the next models with internal hardware upgrades but keep the designs intact. Last year, of course, we saw a big redesign that introduced two versions of Apple's flagship device, one with a much larger screen and both with slimmer, rounded bodies.


Force Touch was first unveiled during the Apple Watch announcement in September 2014 and made its way to the ultra-slim new MacBook's trackpad soon after. On the watch, the feature is used to access hidden options within apps. On the MacBook, Force Touch streamlines features like link previews, word definitions and fast-forwarding through videos. The next iPhone is also rumored to use a harder kind of aluminum currently used in the Apple Watch Sport, and there could be a shiny new rose gold colored iPhone. The camera might see a bump to 12 megapixels, up from eight.

Future iPhones might be able to better tell you where people are and how to find them. Apple has filed two new patent applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that could make geofencing and location sharing features significantly more useful — and borderline creepy, AppleInsider found.

The first patent, which was filed for "custom location notification," can trigger alerts depending on where your friends and family are located in real time.
The feature would be an extension of Apple's Find My Friends app, which lets one person track another's whereabouts — say, a mom tracking her daughter. If the updated technology was implemented, the mother could receive a notification when her daughter enters and leaves school. Another application would be notifying family members when one person is near a supermarket, making it easy to send a reminder about picking up groceries.
 Apple Patent Application
The patent states that a person will be notified and must approve the request to be tracked by someone else. When approved, the tracker will receive updates about who they are tracking via an automated text message, email or telephone call, depending on notification preference.
The second patent application, which calls for "indoor remote triggered scanning," is closely related to the first. While you have been able to send friends your location for years via the iPhone, the feature doesn't work indoors.

With new geofencing features that use nearby "wireless nodes" (likely iBeacons) to track users across indoor spaces, it's easier to leave a digital trail behind when inside a building. it's easier to leave a digital trail behind when inside a building. Considering retail stores use iBeacons to emit wireless signals to shoppers, this will make it easier for people to track where others are located and where they are going in real time when indoors. On some level, geofencing features can already be put to use on current phones. For example, you could have your iPhone remind you to bring an umbrella when you leave your house via the Reminders app (for example, you can set up a reminder to go off when you hit a certain amount of feet of your current location). While it's unclear when and if the new tracking features will ever make its way onto Apple products, it could add both a layer of conveniency and awkwardness to many situations ./Source
Galaxy S7 concept image 
Samsung fans has set their highest peak of expectations for the Galaxy S7 and yes already launched Samsung S6 is the technology marble. Already, Samsung is following the latest technology innovations in their smartphones. On the next face of the coin, as we said Galaxy S7 news and rumours have started rolling on the web. And there is good news for all the Android fans that Samsung might announce the Galaxy S7 in the December 2015 and the Galaxy S7 release date to be occur in the Jan 2016 as according to the market forecasters. Yes, you have to wait for almost a year from now.

Galaxy S7 concept image

Galaxy S7 release date

Like it happens in case of Apple, talking about a gadget releasing after a year or two, doesn’t sound nonsense and similar is going with the Samsung. And if talking about the Samsung Galaxy S7 release date then it will surely happen in the early 2015 and might announced by December 2015. This means you would able to see this phone by the end of 2015. The launch of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, proved that we would see the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge too, next year.


  • Samsung Galaxy S7 release date – December 2015?
  • Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge – December 2015?
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 release date – March 2015
In past year, Samsung growth rate was not as of 2013 or 2012 and the reason is only the competition and change that end user are looking for. Although, Samsung is launching several devices in a month or two gap, but the good portion of profit earned by Samsung, comes from the flagship. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the flagship of 2015 and launching another flagship in the lineup Galaxy S, in 2015 only that’s also a question for Samsung. But if the Samsung Galaxy S7 release date to happen by this year then it would be double fun for the Samsung fans and also for the Samsung itself. Like, in the early 2014 we saw the Galaxy S5 and later in December the Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus. The approach is similar to the Apple iPhone series but launching two flagships in an year could also bring more profits.
Galaxy-S7-Side-Looks
But again we would like to mention the possibilities for the Samsung Galaxy S7 release date are in favour of 2016 early months.
Galaxy S7 Specs and Features
In the passed year 2014, Samsung got lots of patents for the new microchips that would be part of future generation Samsung devices out of which one is already announced LDDR4 8GB memory modules which would correspond to the 4GB RAM. And now next level LDDR4 memory chips are being created at lower nano scale, this mean within few months Samsung would develop the 6GB RAM module. And guess what, it would be powering the Samsung Galaxy S7 specs for sure. And the Galaxy S7 feature won’t end here at the more memory; the more processing would also be the red feature of Samsung S7. Already, we have a rumor for Note 5 that it would be first to have the Exynos 7X range chipset from Samsung that carries 8-Core in the configuration of little.Big.BIGGER HMP cyclone technology.
If you don’t know about the cyclone HMP technology, the same tech was used in the latest Apple iPhone chipset. The story of Samsung’s powerful chip is extended by the news that it would be supporting the 6 instructions per cycle, which would make the performance of Galaxy S7 two times faster than that of 3-instruction 64-bit processor of Galaxy S6. (yet to be revealed)
Every year Smartphone is taking a good shape in terms of technology or design, and Samsung is the display manufacturing giant and innovation in the Galaxy S7 display is of course expected. The flexible display rumours are rolling with the every launch in the Galaxy S series device, but who knows if Samsung Galaxy S7 display would be flexible. If not then one thing is sure; the 4K-resolution display would definitely be the part of the Samsung S7 display configuration.
For smartphone industry, the battery life is always a challenge and slowly the revolution is coming to this part of the phone too, for example the fast charge technique. But the users are still not very convinced. For your information, Samsung is testing such technique in the secret technology mines of Korea. And Galaxy S7 battery would of course the most revolutionary with its surprising quantity and ultimate fast charging technique.
  • Octa-core Snapdragon processor 3.0+ GHz or Exynos 16-core big.LITTLE
  • 4K resolution amazing display or foldable display
  • 4GB RAM for blazing and flawless experience
  • 20 MP front camera sensor with rotatory system
  • Very advanced Touch ID button and retina scan
  • Ultimate charging time with fast charging technology  
  • Galaxy S7 

More information, coming soon!

In past 5 years, a new thing that has arrived in the hands of people is none other than the smartphone. And big brands like Samsung have made it possible. And a big credit goes to the revolutionary smartphones of Samsung Galaxy S series and more smartphone in the series to come soon. Exactly the Samsung Galaxy S7 would do for Samsung, for the fans better technology and innovation and for the Samsung more profits. The smartphone market is going like a wave, for someone more profitable and popular, for example the last Galaxy S5 was not that impressive and now Galaxy S6 is replacing all the problems and later more advanced the Samsung Galaxy S7.
There is lot more to discover with time for our flagship the Samsung Galaxy S7. But it would take time, more rumours and News to come soon. And here we would update all, so stay tuned for more. Do subscribe to get latest updates into your mailbox. Moreover, as you know sharing is caring. We would care for you’re by launching new Galaxy S7 concept images and news, and you share our posts in FaceBook, Twitter, Google Plus and more. And your comments are the mirror for your fan-ship for Samsung; Galaxy S7 would be the killer phone for sure.

We don't know much, but we know we want it

Ten things we d like to see in the iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 


The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been with us long enough now that we're getting a little tired of them. Fickle, we know. But the mooted specs and features of the new iPhone (probably called the iPhone 6S, with the iPhone 7 coming in 2016) are starting to trickle out.
Current highlights include Force Touch, the Apple SIM, a DSLR-quality camera and double the RAM of the iPhone 6, so you're free to start getting excited.
We've also rounded up 10 things we think should appear in the next iteration for Apple to finally have the all-conquering handset it's been trying to create for so many years.
What would you like to see in the iPhone 6S and iPhone 7? Do let us know in the comments. But before we get to what we want to see, here are the best (and most believable) of the rumors on offer so far:

Apple iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 release date

According to a leaked Vodafone email the iPhone 6S will be arriving in September, which comes as no surprise at all, given that September is when new models typically launch. However it gets a bit more specific with a date of September 25.
On the other hand an earlier report pegs the iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 as launching in August. Apparently the change (if trued) is due to an excessive component yield. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo - who has a track record that's better-than-average but not perfect - thinks an August announcement is likely as well. We're not convinced though.
According to GSM Dome Apple has started ordering camera sensors from Sony for the iPhone 6C, which follows news that Samsung is reportedly already producing the A9 processor that is expected to be included in the iPhone 6S, so all of the iPhone 6S/7 models could be ahead of schedule.
But while an August launch would be nice September 2015 is still our best guess for the iPhone 6S, as previous models have launched in that same month.


Apple iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 design

The iPhone 6S could be getting a new colour scheme as a rose gold version is said to be on the cards as well as a pink model.
The last thing Apple wants is a bendy phone, so it's not entirely surprising that we're also hearing rumors the iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 might feature the lightweight and strong Series 7000 aluminium alloy it uses on the Apple Watch Sport.
There are numerous Apple patents in the wild which point to weird and wonderful designs, but haven't yet come to anything, such as more than one for a phone with a curved display, a little like the Galaxy Note Edge. It's possible that we could see that in the iPhone 6S, but we'd be very surprised.
Not only would it be a risky move to bring something so untested to market but Apple has just redesigned its handsets with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, so in all likelihood this year's models will stick to roughly the same design, albeit with beefed up innards, such as a faster A9 processor.



Apple iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 screen The iPhone 6S will probably remain at 4.7 inches, with a 5.5-inch iPhone 6S Plus option too and possibly even a 4.0-inch iPhone 6C model. As well as being available in a smaller size the screen might get tougher, as rumours suggest that Apple has teamed with Foxconn to produce sapphire displays for the iPhone 6S. Such screens were rumoured for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but production difficulties seemingly got in the way. Hopefully this time we actually will get them as it would bring better scratch protection and higher visibility to the screen. Sources spoke to Chinese site Feng and revealed the iPhone 6S is set to get a 1080p display whilst the iPhone 6S Plus will jump up to 2K. We don't know much about the site - let's hope Apple has a solution for battery life to tackle the amount of extra this is sure to eat up. Apple iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 rivals As the only flagship iOS device the iPhone 6S will be in the fortunate position of not having any direct rivals. But look towards Android and it could have quite a lot of competition. The HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 are high end alternatives and are likely to have dropped in price considerably by the time the iPhone 6S launches. HTC One M9 Both also sport a premium design, making them every bit as aesthetically pleasing as the iPhone 6. Speaking of the iPhone 6, that too could be a rival, since the iPhone 6S will probably have the same look and may not have many new features. Then there's the LG G4, which could tempt all but the staunchest of Apple fans and Samsung is bound to have another Note up its sleeve, with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 likely to be a serious iPhone 6S Plus rival. Apple iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 camera and battery The front-facing camera on the iPhone 6S could benefit from a flash, 1080p video, slow motion video and a panorama mode if hints found in the iOS 9 code are to be believed. Apple could also be giving the iPhone 6S a megapixel boost, upping its rear camera to 12MP if rumours prove accurate. Apple has acquired a company which creates smartphone cameras designed to match DSLR quality, so we could also see a big jump in image quality on the iPhone 6S. That lines up with earlier reports from Daring Fireball's John Gruber, who said the iPhone 6S will have "the biggest camera jump ever", featuring a two-lens system which apparently brings it up to DSLR quality. There's even an outside chance that the camera might include a lens swap feature, making it even more like a DSLR, as back in early 2014 an Apple patent for swappable lenses was uncovered. But don't hold your breath for these features, as the original two-lens rumour has had doubt cast on it by a separate source, claiming that it won't happen as it would apparently require a radical redesign of the chassis- something we're not likely to see until the following year. The battery may be in for a boost though, as Apple is seemingly going on a hiring spree for battery-related positions. Apple iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 OS and power The iPhone 6S will clearly ship with iOS 9 and we know all about Apple's upcoming software now too. Expect improvements to Siri and Apple Maps, a new keyboard and battery life extending smarts among other things. The iPhone 6S will of course come with a new processor, probably dubbed the A9 and we're hearing again that Samsung is in the frame to build the chip, which will apparently be 15% smaller, 20% more powerful and 35% more power efficient than the Apple A8 processor found in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It will also be better to flick around, thanks to the mooted upgrade in the specs - 2GB of RAM would certainly soup up an already zippy phone and it's an upgrade which has now been rumoured a second time, so it might well happen. That said, the obvious worry is whether developers hoovering up that extra power will cause Apple to return to its usual battery woes. Apple iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 other features The iPhone 6S could get two innovative features if rumours are to be believed. First up there's the Apple SIM, which first appeared in the iPad Air 2 and allows users to switch network without changing their SIM card. Network freedom would be great, but we're not convinced that carriers will support it. The other rumored feature takes the form of 'Force Touch'. This is something we're first seeing on the Apple Watch and it allows the display to differentiate between different strength presses, responding in different ways. According to sources speaking to Apple Insider and echoed by The Wall Street Journal, the feature will make it across to the iPhone 6S (or possibly just the iPhone 6S Plus). Aside from those things it's expected that support for Apple's new streaming music service will be included in the iOS 8.4 update, but that isn't confirmed just yet so Apple may wait until iOS 9 on the iPhone 6S and bring it in as a major new feature. The music streaming service comes after Apple purchased Beats last year and is expected to take on the tough competition of Spotify. Apple iPhone 6C Along with the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus there's talk that we might see an iPhone 6C. This is expected to be a comparatively budget plastic handset, much like the iPhone 5C was. However the iPhone 6C could prove more popular as it's expected to have a 4.0-inch screen, making it not just cheaper but also smaller than this year's other iPhones. iPhone 6C leak We may already have caught a glimpse of the iPhone 6C in red and while its existence still isn't confirmed a number of rumours have pointed to one, so it's looking likely, though analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is unconvinced. If the iPhone 6C does exist it's rumoured to have curved screen edges, a little like the iPhone 6, but with a design that has more in common with the iPhone 5S (or the 5C, since it looks to be plastic). It's unlikely that the iPhone 6C will share many specs with the iPhone 6S and indeed a report from DigiTimes suggests it will ship with an A8 processor (as found in the iPhone 6) and will also include Touch ID and NFC (for Apple Pay). Apple iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 cost There aren't yet any rumours associated with the cost of the iPhone 6S, but we can take an educated guess that it won't start at less than £539 / $649 / AU$999, since that's what you're looking at for an iPhone 6. The only possible exception to that is the iPhone 6C, which likely will be a little cheaper if it exists. If anything though the iPhone 6S might be even more expensive, since it's likely to be jam-packed with high-end tech.

galaxy s6 edge colors
I honestly can’t remember the last time two Android smartphones grabbed as much attention as the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have. Maybe the Galaxy S4? Maybe. Either way, the two new phones from Samsung are going to be tough for anyone to beat in 2015. Samsung took every single new technology built for smartphones and threw it inside their new Galaxy flagships. But not only did they throw in new tech, they are introducing each in a handful of colors that all look gorgeous in person and in renders.
Because Samsung gave us a massive image dump of each color at a variety of angles, we wanted to present them to you to potentially help decide which you might opt for when the phone drops in early April.
The Galaxy S6 will come in four colors:  White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, and Blue Topaz. The Galaxy S6 Edge will come in four colors as well:  White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, and Green Emerald.
