iPhone 6 Projector Leaked Video
Apple announced the new iPhone 5c during its September 10, 2013 media event.
In line with our expectations, the iPhone 5c is essentially a repackaged iPhone 5 with a new plastic enclosure. The new device is available in five different colors — green, yellow, blue, white, and pink.
The phone uses the same A6 processor and rear-facing camera as the iPhone 5, but does contain a few upgraded parts — such as an improved front-facing FaceTime camera and support for more wireless LTE bands.
The new iPhone 5c starts at $99 (with 2 year contract) in the U.S. and is now available for pre-order from Apple, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. Retail stores, such as Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Radio Shack and Target are also offering pre-orders, but in-store only. Initial deliveries of the iPhone 5c will take place on September 20.
How to Buy
Apple is launching the iPhone 5c in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK starting on September 20.
In the U.S., the iPhone 5c will cost $99 for the 16GB model and $199 for the 32GB model with a 2-year contract. Non-contract, unlocked devices will be available at launch for $549/$649. Pricing for other individual countries should be on Apple’s online store.
Unlike, the iPhone 5s, Apple is offering pre-orders for the iPhone 5c.
PRE-ORDER IF YOU CAN
Pre-orders for the iPhone 5c began on September 13. Pre-orders can sell out quickly, but launch-day stock continued to be available through Apple and many carriers through the first day of pre-order availability. If you are interested in pre-ordering the iPhone 5c on launch day, ordering early will help guarantee getting the device delivered on launch day. For reference, the initial stock of the iPhone 5 sold out in the first hour.
If you do choose to try to buy the iPhone 5c on launch day, you may have to stand in a line and still risk not getting a device.
If you know you want an iPhone 5c on launch, pre-ordering it is going to be the most hassle-free way to go.
Individual carriers have different rules on upgrade eligibility. In the U.S., customers typically sign 2 year contracts to get the best “subsidized” price. Apple offers an online tool to determine if you are indeed eligible to upgrade your iPhone with your carrier.

iPhone 5S / iPhone 6 concept uses projector for full-size Mac keyboard Projector blurs lines between Apple devices.
Iphone6projector.com Latest news, updates and reviews of the iPhone6 and iPhone6 projector device.
A ‘what-if?’ device created by an Apple fanboy suggests there might be life in the notion of projector phones yet, despite their hitherto very niche appeal among tech fans.
Most projector phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy Beam, solely enable users to project movies, videos and other files on to a wall or other flat surfaces. And, thus far at least, they’ve met with scant approval from the mass market.
However, a device dreamed up by YouTube user Sonitdank aims to reinvent the projector handset once and for all. And he’s using the world’s best-selling phone as his canvas.
His take on the iPhone (see it for yourself in the clip above) uses a projector in the rear of the device to create a full-size virtual Apple Mac keyboard, thus putting an end to the age-old problem of fiddly touchscreen text input.
But that’s just half the story. A second, front-facing projector reproduces a Mac screen on the wall in front of the handset, effectively giving you a full size home computer in your pocket.
Impressed? It’s hard not to be. Even if it’s just the production values of the clip (CF: the convincing computer generated imagery and swelling strings and dubstep drop on the soundtrack) that you’re responding to.
The actual likelihood of tech like this ever coming to the iPhone 6 or 5S is quite another matter, however. For one thing it’s hard to see arch form-is-function adherent Jonathan Ive ever sanctioning something as ostensibly gimmicky.
Still, for sheer invention alone we very much applaud Sonitdank’s effort. And at a time when it seems people are crying out for some major changes to iOS and iPhone hardware design, we think a little dose of this kind of radical thinking could be just what Apple needs right now.

iPhone 6 rumor rollup for the week ending May 3
De-glitzing iOS, curvobsession, Peter the Great, 20-nanometer magic
By John Cox, Network World
May 03, 2013 12:22 PM ET
Network World – Almost overnight, thanks to posts finally resembling “news,” the iOSphere has become an expert in industrial design, contemplating an iPhone 6 or 5S or something with a flatter, sleeker, cooler, starker, smoother, de-glitzed and overall just better-looking iOS 7.
Also this week, the continuing push to abolish straight lines in the Next iPhone; June looms large … in 2014; and a new silicon fabrication plant in southern Taiwan signals nanometer magic.
You read it here second.
“But as it turns out, [Apple CEO Tim] Cook may have just been setting expectations for the upcoming iPhone 5S launch because according to a new report, Apple has already found a way to work a larger display into the iPhone 6 without the “tradeoffs” seen in current phablets, and it’s set to launch next year.”
— Zach Epstein, BGR, basing his dramatic conclusion on a “report” that turns out to consist entirely of another blog’s brief paraphrase of a single comment by a stock analyst, namely, “Apple Inc. will likely launch a larger screen iPhone 6 in June 2014, according to Jefferies analyst Peter Misek.”
iPhone 6 will run a de-glitzed iOS 7
Finally, something that actually resembles what used to be called “news.”
“It’s a pretty big update,” according to John Paczkowski, of The Wall Street Journal’s AllThingsD blog. He’s citing “sources who declined to be named because they are forbidden to talk publicly about Apple’s plans.”
[ IN PICTURES: Apple iPhoneys: The iOS 7 edition ]
That’s an artful way of hinting that the sources can be forbidden to talk because they’re Apple employees.
For a complete account of these changes see “Apple reportedly steps up iOS 7 work.”
“With SVP of Industrial Design Jony Ive now overseeing [user] interface design, sources say Apple has adopted a unified approach to software and hardware design,” writes Paczkowski. “And evidently the spartan, elegant aesthetic that Ive has developed around Apple’s hardware is now being brought to bear on its software, as well. Last week, 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman reported that iOS 7 would feature a ‘flat’ design that favors simplicity over flash. I’ve heard similar descriptions from sources who say iOS 7 is iOS ‘de-glitzed.’”
In part, de-glitzing seems to mean doing away with what’s known as skeuomorphic design — trying to replicate in detail the look and feel of a bookcase, for Apple iBooks, or of a notepad for Apple Notes.
Paczkowski believes there’s more involved, that Ive’s design changes are part of a “significant reimagining” of the company’s mobile platform. “With new mobile operating systems like BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone proving that there’s plenty of room left for innovation in the market, Apple can ill afford even the risk of the perception that iOS might be getting dusty,” he writes.
He doesn’t go into details, presumably because his sources didn’t share any.
The blog post correlates with details from other sources:
A March post at The Wall Street Journal’s Digits blog: “[I]n Apple’s next mobile operating system, Ive is pushing a more ‘flat design’ that is starker and simpler, according to developers who have spoken to Apple employees but didn’t have further details.”
A recent online conversation at The Branch among a group of Apple watchers: “apparently [iOS 7 is] rather significant system-wide UI overhaul” (John Gruber, Daring Fireball); “Ive’s work is apparently making many people really happy, but will also apparently make rich-texture-loving designers sad” (Rene Ritchie, iMore).
This week, a Bloomberg story by Adam Satariano: Ive’s “sweeping software overhaul … leaves the company at risk of falling behind on a new version of the operating system.”
But in software development, as in an airline flight, being “behind schedule” doesn’t necessarily mean “being late.”
“Engineers are racing to finish iOS 7 … in time for a June preview at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference,” Satariano writes. You can meet a deadline by working faster and by using more people to do the work. There have been several reports that Apple has shifted OS X software engineers to iOS.
“While the company still expects to release iOS 7 on time as soon as September, internal deadlines for submitting features for testing are being set later than past releases, people said.”
So Satariano’s sources tell him that iOS 7, even if parts of it are “behind schedule” now, is still on schedule for a September 2013 release; shifting deadlines and adjusting schedules is a standard part of managing a complex software development process, or any product development.
And the September date fits perfectly with Tim Cook’s recent statement that Apple will begin announcing new hardware, software and services in the fall of 2013. [See "Apple's Cook resets 3 popular, and wrong, Apple rumors"]
If Apple can marry an improved UI design with some important under-the-hood OS improvements, iOS 7 could prove to be a big step forward for Apple. In that same Branch conversation mentioned above, Federico Viticci (@viticci), editor in chief of MacStoriesNet, laid out some areas where Apple could make big improvements.
“Aside from a UI update, Apple should use WWDC [the annual Worldwide Developers Conference this June] to introduce AND explain new functionality,” Viticci wrote. “Fix iCloud and improve its syncing. Showcase examples on stage. Improve iOS inter-app communication and explain it publicly. Admit that some things sucked/sucks (Maps debacle, international Siri) and lay out new plans. More than a 5S [phone announcement], I think new iOS announcement can make a lot of people excited and curious again. Aside from that, some things just need to be fixed or improved.”
iPhone 6 will have awesomely cool curved batteries
This is revealed by two newly public Apple patent applications, which according to the iOSphere Inference Engine means that these will become a reality in the Next iDevice.
Peter Chubb, at a website with the search-engine optimized title of “Product Reviews,” managed to mention two hot Next Products in one headline: “iPhone 6 or iWatch could share ingenious battery design.”
The patents don’t mention “iPhone 6,” of course, or the mythical iWatch. And it may take years, if ever, to turn them into products, and yadda yadda yadda.
Most iOSpherites didn’t fall into that fallacy. But they also generally didn’t distinguish between the two patents. One is for “non-rectangular batteries for portable electronic devices,” which simply means the battery isn’t, you know, a rectangle and may actually be for a method of creating the non-rectangularity. The second patent “relate[s] to the manufacture of a battery cell,” and seems, in a sense, to extend the first patent, describing a technique for bending the “layers” comprising the battery into a curve.
If you’re so inclined, you can find details of the non-rectangular battery here. From the patent application: “The battery cell includes a set of layers forming a non-rectangular shape, wherein the set of layers comprises a cathode with an active coating, a separator, and an anode with an active coating.” The summary description concludes: “Furthermore, the non-rectangular shape is created by removing material from one or more of the layers.”
From the second application, on manufacturing a battery cell: “The battery cell includes a set of layers including a cathode with an active coating, a separator, and an anode with an active coating. The battery cell also includes a pouch enclosing the layers, wherein the pouch is flexible. The layers may be wound to create a jelly roll prior to sealing the layers in the flexible pouch. A curve may also be formed in the battery cell by applying a pressure of at least 0.13 kilogram-force (kgf) per square millimeter to the layers using a set of curved plates applying a temperature of about 85.degree. C. to the layers.”
Here’s one of the application’s drawings that shows, presumably, what it all means (from the post at Geekwire). Sure enough: The battery cell is curved slightly at one end.
Anything that can make more efficient use of space, and put to use previously wasted space, inside a mobile device is worth exploring. For one thing, you could actually make the battery larger.
The new curved iPhone battery rumor fits in neatly with the apparently inexhaustible fascination with curved iPhone display screens, and before that, with curved iPhone bodies. Maybe the explanation of curvobsession is simpler, more emotional: people are just sick of straight lines.
iPhone 6 will be announced in June … 2014
The reason this “news” is so depressing is because it’s so depressingly familiar.
Jonathan Ratner’s post at the Financial Post carries the headline: “iPhone 6 coming in June 2014: Misek.”
“Misek” is of course the great, the redoubtable, or perhaps just doubtable, Peter Misek, a stock analyst with the investment banking firm of Jefferies.
Needless to say this is dispiriting news. It’s also the same news, by the same stock analyst, that the Rollup covered for the Jan. 18 edition (see “iPhone 6 will ship in … wait, 2014? That must be a mistake, right?”).
So this isn’t really news. But if you have a short enough memory, or only short-term memory like the protagonist in “Memento,” every rumor can seem new.
Misek apparently doesn’t have much to add, except that the June 2014 iPhone will have a “bigger screen” according to Ratner. Here’s the complete, and only, comment in the Financial Post’s post about screen size: “Apple Inc. will likely launch a larger screen iPhone 6 in June 2014, according to Jefferies analyst Peter Misek.”
Yet at BGR, Zach Epstein uses that as the foundation for a post with the rather astonishing headline: “Apple relents: iPhone 6 with larger display reportedly due in June 2014.”
Epstein mentions Apple CEO Tim Cook’s comment during the recent March quarter earnings call, the full quote being, “Our competitors have made some significant trade-offs in many of these areas in order to ship a larger display. We would not ship a larger-display iPhone while these tradeoffs exist.”
Pretty clearly, Cook is not ruling out a larger display provided Apple can overcome the user experience tradeoffs plaguing rival smartphone makers.
But Epstein uses the brief, vague, unsupported paraphrase of a stock analyst to re-interpret Cook’s statement rather dramatically.
“But as it turns out, Cook may have just been setting expectations for the upcoming iPhone 5S launch because according to a new report, Apple has already found a way to work a larger display into the iPhone 6 without the ‘tradeoffs’ seen in current phablets, and it’s set to launch next year,” Epstein writes.
To repeat, Epstein bases this conclusion on nothing more than the following: “Apple Inc. will likely launch a larger screen iPhone 6 in June 2014, according to Jefferies analyst Peter Misek.”
The rest of the Financial Post’s account of Misek’s “report” is simply a rehash of equally vague and equally familiar rumors that have been around for months, even years, now coalescing around the “iPhone 5S” — a faster processor, a better camera, colors (or perhaps “colors!”), and other improvements. One or other of the phones, or some other iPhone, will also have a mobile payments platform, using either an NFC chip or, more probably, sophisticated barcode scanning, according to Misek. Eventually, he’ll be right.
iPhone 6 or the “2014 iPhone,” will use a processor from TSMC instead of Samsung
The laconic DigiTimes, citing the usual “industry sources,” says that the 2014 iPhone model will use an Apple-designed processor built by Taiwan’s TSMC, rather than Samsung, which has manufactured the CPU for existing iPhones and iPads.
The move has been widely rumored for years, usually on the somewhat dubious belief that because Apple and Samsung are tearing each other apart in vicious court battles over smartphone patents, they can’t possibly be expected to have a grown-up, peaceful and extremely mutually profitable deal on mobile processors.
In any event, according to DigiTimes: “Apple is expected to contract TSMC to manufacture all the application processors (APs) used in the 2014 model of its iPhone slated to launch in the second half of the year, industry sources have claimed.”
The chips reportedly will be built at a massive new TSMC plant, Fab 14, in southern Taiwan. The plant “will be ready for production by the end of 2013,” according to DigiTimes’ sources.
The sources also claim that Fab 14 is designed to crank out chips based on a 20 nanometer process. Most of Apple’s current mobile products run 32 nanometer chips; the first was the March 2012 A5, which powers the iPad mini, iPad 2, and fifth-generation iPod touch. The A6 in iPhone 5 and A6X in fourth-generation iPad also use this process.
Shifting to 20 nanometer can reduce a chip’s overall size, improve compute power, and reduce battery demand. But in keeping with past practice, Apple may first quietly introduce a new process architecture in a under-the-covers update of a low volume product, such as Apple TV, before introducing it into the iPhone. Wikipedia has a handy list of Apple’s A series processors to date.

iPhone 6 Release Date 2013, Features: Double Projectors Appear In Latest Concept Video
By iDigitalTimes Staff Reporter
The iPhone 6 release date (or possibly the iPhone 5S release date) is expected to arrive in March 2013, but Apple fans can’t wait that long. Concept designs and videos abound online and we’ve found one that’s pretty amazing. Watch it here or below:
The latest iPhone 6 concept video imagines an Apple smartphone as a device reminiscent of a Transformer action figure. Simply place it on a flat surface and the iPhone 6 reveals two projectors that create a keyboard in front of you and a full sized screen on the wall across from it, allowing you to carry a OS X equipped Mac computer around in your pocket!
Is there any possibility that the iPhone 6 release date could bring such amazing innovation to Apple’s consumers? It seems unlikely based on leaked information and photos we’ve already seen, and each new smartphone rarely lives up to the hype and impressive concept designs we see online in the months leading up the launch.
“Amazing idea but there is no way that Apple could make it, they contantly screw up with things already that have already been invented,” argued a commented on Phones Review calling himself Kid Android. “They cant innovate themselves and not have things completely go wrong.”
If Apple actually came out with an iPhone 6 like the one in the video above the new smartphone would definitely fly off the shelves faster than ever before. The Cupertino-based company could definitely use an edge in 2013 as Samsung and the rest of the Android army gather their strength. The fact that Sir Jony Ive recently took on more responsibility at Apple also gives us hope that the epic technology designer can inject some real innovation into the iPhone 6.
The real problem is that this kind of amazing projector technology might force Apple to make the iPhone bigger in order to hold the new parts and the necessary bigger battery. However, Apple seems determined to make each new iPhone lighter and thinner than the one before.
According to a recent article from DigiTimes Apple is hoping to equip the iPhone 6 with IGZO displays. Manufactured by Sharp, these screens are some of the thinnest and lightest on the market and could be used to slim down the next iPhones and iPads.
Here’s a quote from DigiTimes, which has a hit-or-miss record when it comes to iPhone rumors:
“The sources said Apple is in further discussions with Sharp over IGZO panel production capacity estimates for 2013 and is also inquiring about whether AU Optronics’ (AUO) L5C line could be used to produce the technology.”
IGZO, which stands for indium gallium zinc oxigo, would provide Apple with not only a thinner screen but also a display that uses less power. If the iPhone 6′s only new feature is the IGZO display they could release a thinner, long-lasting smartphone. But if Apple also incorporates projectors into the next iPhone along with IGZO they could release a device that looked just like the iPhone 5 with features that would blow the competition out of the water.
Apple has yet to comment on any rumors surrounding the iPhone 6 release date, specs or features, and the company will likely remain silent until the official launch. But it seems likely that the next iPhone’s release will in early to mid-2013.
What features do you hope to see arrive with Apple’s iPhone 6 release date? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

iPhone 6 Details Out – What We Know So Far (Features, Release Date And More)
By PRARTHITO MAITY | MARCH 31 2012 6:22 AM
The internet has been flooded over the months with people making enormous amount of Google search for everything on iPhone 5. But very interestingly, the iPhone 5 searches have been complimented with some people going the distance and making searches for iPhone 6 specifications and even a possible release date. Another example of how obsessed people have become about Apple products overtime?
Although the possibility of an iPhone 6 release in the near future is pretty low, there are a few blogs and websites all over the internet only dedicated to news and information about the futuristic device. While some argue about how the Apple-made smartphone will look, others have posted a host of specifications that are impressive to say the least.
Let’s take a look at what we know about the iPhone 6 thus far.
Design: iPhone 6′s design is one of the most talked about topics on internet at the moment. Some Fans are expecting that iPhone 6 will feature a revolutionary curved screen design. The design rumor originated when Apple reportedly contacted lens technology companies like G-Tech and Fuji Crystal, and enquired about the equipments required for polishing curved glass.
And not only the new iPhone but the curved glass is also expected to arrive with the next iPad. It was previously reported that Apple has purchased about 300 specialized glass cutting machines. However, this was rumored when first rumors about Apple iPhone 5 arrived on the internet.
Projector in iPhone 6: It is widely rumored that iPhone 6 will arrive with a built-in projector that will allow users to project videos or images on a flat surface at a short distance. It has been said that Apple has been working on a Pico-like projector for iOS devices. Nonetheless, it is yet to be found as to how exactly these projectors will work with a shared workspace in presentations.
128 GB Storage: Apple, as per different blogs and sites dedicated to iPhone 6, will add a new 128 GB storage option to its existing line of iPhones which are currently available in avatars of 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. Needless to say the 128 GB one will demand a higher price tag. Anyhow, some fans still expect that Apple will introduce an external storage option in its newer versions of iPhone.
p-Si LCD Screen: For people who are still confused about this, p-Si LCD is the next generation display technology developed by Sharp. p-Si stands for PolySilicon Liquid Crystal Display, and has a number of developments and new features which are expected to feature in iPhone 6. One of the major advantages of the screen is the monolithic integration. This means that the driver circuits of the display can be integrated directly into display. Reportedly, the screen also is thinner and lighter and consumes less battery.
Wireless Charging: It is being said that the new device can be charged wirelessly with the help of inductive charging, which uses electromagnetics to wirelessly charge a device. There are only a few phones in the market, at the moment, which are experimenting with this new technology. Solar charging is also expected with the iPhone 6.
Release Date: iPhone 6 is still a rumor that is making rounds. With iPhone 5 expected to arrive later this year, iPhone 6 can be expected sometime in next year.
