iPhone 6 Could Feature Solar Charging?

Solar panels could be included in sapphire glass covering

daily apple rumors  300x180 Wednesday Apple Rumors: iPhone 6 Could Feature Solar ChargingSun Powered: The iPhone 6 won’t launch for months, but Apple’s (AAPL) next-generation iPhone is already generating some bizarre rumors. According to an analyst at Seeking Alpha, Apple has been investing in technology that could lead to this year’s iPhone being covered in sapphire glass with tiny solar panels embedded in the covering. The solar panels would help recharge the iPhone’s batteries when exposed to a strong light source. Apple could also feature the technology in a new version of the iPod Touch, though there are persistent rumors that Apple will not launch a next-generation of the iPod line, whose sales have been falling for years. The Seeking Alpha analyst notes that Apple already holds a variety of patents for mobile device solar charging technology and signed an agreement with GT Advanced Technologies to develop sapphire display covers late last year. Recent rumors indicate that Apple will launch an iPhone with a screen larger than 4.5-inches this year. Other rumors suggest that Apple could launch two iPhone 6 models, including one with a screen above 5-inches.

iPhone 6: Super-slim Liquidmetal iPhone ‘due in May’

iPhone 6 with wrap-around screen design

Latest reports suggest iPhone 6 will be just 6mm thick thanks to new Liquidmetal frame

LAST UPDATED AT 10:23 ON Thu 16 Jan 2014

THE iPhone 6 could be just 6mm thick – and the latest reports suggest that it will be with us by May at the latest.

Analysts have long predicted that the new phone will have a larger screen, but South Korean website ET News says the handset will also be significantly slimmer. Quoting sources from Chinese companies within Apple’s supply chain, says the new model will be called the iPhone Air.

“To earn the moniker already bestowed upon the top-of-the-line iPad and Mac models, the new iPhone will reportedly measure only 6 millimeters thick,” says Forbes, after translating the [2]South Korean report.

By comparison, the iPhone 5S is 7.6mm thick and the 5C model measures 9mm. The iPhone 3GS, sold until late 2012, measured 12mm – twice as thick as the proposed new model.

Patent applications released this week suggest that some components within the ultra-slim frame will be built from Liquidmetal, which is stronger and more durable than aluminium. The documents, published by MacRumors, suggest that Apple is planning to use the alloy in buttons and switches, which have been a weak point on past models.

Some rumours have suggested that Apple may use Liquidmetal more extensively in the iPhone 6, replacing part or all of the aluminium shell. In theory that would mean the handset could be lighter and slimmer without skimping on strength or build quality, but in practice it seems unlikely.

Although one of the inventors of Liquidmetal predicted two years ago that Liquidmetal cases would be possible by mid-2014, its use has so far been limited to small components.

Analysts disagree about the likely timing of the new iPhone. The International Business Times says that the release date is likely to be “May 2014 or even earlier as fresh data suggests that the iPhone 5S and 5C duo is not winning the battle against the Android and Windows Mobile platforms.

Other analysts have favoured an October release, which would maintain Apple’s established pattern of annual upgrades.

Tech news website BGR acknowledges that an all-new model seems “improbable” in May, just seven months after the debut of the iPhone 5S, but says that reliable sources in the company’s supply chain say the device is definitely on the way.

Widespread speculation suggests that the new phone, whenever it arrives, will have a five-inch screen. The four-inch screen on the current model is small compared with those of many of its rivals.

“Releasing a device with a larger display is an interesting move for Apple because it will be a rare instance where the company will be following rival Samsung, which first sparked the ‘phablet’ craze back in 2012 with its original Galaxy Note,” BGR says, using the term given to phone-tablet hybrids.

“It would be rare to see Apple release a new version of the iPhone so close to the release of its latest iPhone 5s, but maybe the company doesn’t want to wait much longer to put out a device with a larger form factor.”

Apple is gearing up for a massive iPhone 5s launch on China Mobile

iPhone 5s China Mobile

Apple’s iPhones will finally debut on China Mobile this coming Friday, and there likely isn’t a better use of the word “finally” in the context of Apple and its push to improve its position in the East. The Cupertino, California-based company had reportedly been negotiating with the world’s biggest carrier for years, but a deal was eventually reached and Apple announced late last year that the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c would be made available to China Mobile subscribers on January 17th. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, China Mobile subscribers will have plenty of inventory available at launch, at least where the more popular flagship iPhone 5s is concerned. The paper cited a single unnamed source in reporting that iPhone maker Foxconn has shipped about 1.4 million iPhone 5s units to China Mobile ahead of Friday’s release. Analysts estimate that Apple will sell 13 million iPhones or more this year in China, and it looks like the company is indeed gearing up for a big start.
