Apple has just sent invitations to the press for an upcoming event on September,9th. The rumors have pinpointed the date already, so it is hardly a surprise.
Apple is expected to unveil the worst-kept under wraps iPhone the 4.7" iPhone 6. If we are to trust some previous rumors, the iWatch smartwatch will be joining the next generation iPhone as well.
With the recent LG G Watch R announcement and the upcoming Moto 360 smartwatch, Apple should be in a hurry to capture some of the wearable momentum. It has already snagged a former Tag Heuer's VP of sales, another proof the iWatch announcement is happening sooner than later.
Sources reports suggest that Apple is NOT interested in increasing the Megapixel count of its next iPhone's (iPhone 6) camera, keeping it the same as the current iPhone 5s 8MP camera. Instead Apple will likely focus on improving the lens system and image quality.
Rumors are circulating that Apple will use swappable resin lenses for its iPhone 6 and also suggested the use of optical image stabilization (OIS) on the next iPhone's camera sensor.
What Apple are planning for the iPhone 6 is still not clear, but 8MP in 2014 is NOT a good plan!
Today, Apple's iPhone display supplier "Japan Display" announced a new 5.5-inch Quad-HD Display for smartphones. Speculations hints that Apple will use the same QHD panel for its upcoming iPhone 6 this fall. The display sports a resolution of 1,440x 2,560 (or quad-HD) and a pixel density of 538ppi which is way higher than Retina display.
The display will go into mass production very soon, lining up with reports that the next iPhone display would also be entering this phase in the next month or so in order to achieve a September launch. let's wait and see.
