Analyst Skeptical About Imminent Launch for 12.9-Inch ‘iPad Pro’

A rumored 12.9-inch iPad may still have significant development time left, according to an analyst at IHS, a supply chain research firm. According to CNET, IHS analyst Rhoda Alexander said there were a number of different larger panels, that could be potentially for a larger iPad, floating around display manufacturers — but not in volumes necessary for an imminent launch.

“Some manufacturers over the last six months have received sample quantities of a larger panel. They’re playing around with a product that could possibly be an iPad-related product,” she told CNET in a phone interview.

“Various sizes are being reported with 12.85 inches being one of the sizes,” she said.

Alexander went on to say that IHS did not see significant shipments of any of the larger panels, and suggested that there may not be a market for iPads larger than the current 9.7-inch model. “We have to get a lot further down the line in terms of seeing really strong indicators from Apple that such a product exists, and we’re just not at that point.”

Samsung launched a 12.2-inch Galaxy tablet earlier this year with some reviewers saying the device was not very portable and awkward to hold for long periods of time.

According to a research report from Evercore analyst Patrick Wang, Apple’s larger iPad may be aimed at the enterprise market. Recent rumors have indicated that the 12.9-inch iPad will launch no earlier than the third quarter of 2014.

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.

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.

Apple Reportedly Targeting Late Q3 2014 for 12.9-Inch ‘iPad Pro’ Launch

As outlined in our feature highlighting Apple’s possible product plans for 2014, a number of rumors have suggested Apple may be working on a 12.9-inch iPad model that could launch later this year. The company is allegedly accelerating development on this device in response to Samsung’s introduction of two competing 12.2-inch tablet models, with market sources cited by Digitimes claiming that Apple is now prepping the so-called “iPad Pro” for a late Q3 2014 launch at the earliest.

The claim that Apple’s timeline is motivated by a perceived need to match Samsung’s recent introductions seems doubtful given that Apple has routinely taken its time coming to market even in the face of competitors rushing to beat Apple to its own rumored products, but at a minimum the claimed launch target offers one more data point for those trying to predict a release. Some sources have predicted a launch as soon as early this year but such a timeline seems very unlikely given the absence of part leaks and other substantiating evidence.

Earlier reports suggested the 12.9-inch iPad Pro could be a hybrid device that would appeal to enterprise customers looking for a machine that bridges the gap between tablet and notebook. Based on display panels currently under development in the supply chain, research firm DisplaySearch believes that the iPad Pro could ship with a 12.9-inch Retina display with a resolution of 2732 x 2048 and 265 ppi.

Besides the iPad Pro, Digitimes‘ sources unsurprisingly also claim Apple is working on new 7.9-inch and 9.7-inch models to replace the current Retina iPad mini and iPad Air. These models will likely debut in Q3 2014, keeping with Apple’s current late fall release schedule for the iPad. Demand for the iPad is expected to be strong again in 2014 with the company selling between 80 and 90 million units over the course of the year.

Why Does Apple restrict the use of Adobe flash player technology on the iphone & itouch ?

Question by Truthguy: Why Does Apple restrict the use of Adobe flash player technology on the iphone & itouch ?

Best answer:

Answer by ElBandido
Because they are bitches who don’t want to lose control or money by allowing Flash on the iPhone/touch. If they do allow Flash that means anybody will be able to write apps and put them out for free which means Apple won’t get money.
If you read Apples response they say it’s because their hardware can’t handle Flash, which is bs because the Droid and Hero handle it and they have a smaller processor.

Hope that helps.
