I do not keep abreast with so-called Apple rumors. However, today I picked up something that pique my interest and so I thought we’d share it with you here. We read that there is a chance that future iPhone models will have “hover” gestures and curved displays. Curved like, you know, the iconic Nokia 8110, AKA the banana phone, which recently got rebooted? The curved was described as “inward” and progresses “gradually from top to bottom,” which does really makes it sounds like 8110 kind of design. I know. It is hard to imagine how, but not to worry, because designer Martin Hajek has taken the rumors and imagine what the phone would look like.

September 12 is the date to look out for if you are a fan of iPhone because that is the date earmarked for the big reveal of the next iPhones, including the much anticipated and rumored anniversary edition, the iPhone 8. We are not sure how these sources managed to get hold on these leaks, but if recent history of such leaks have taught us anything, it is that such leaks usually turned out to be pretty spot on. Anywho, with just seven days to the big event, a supposed video of a working iPhone 8 was leaked. Yup. A working iPhone 8 in action. Imagine that! Continue reading Working Apple iPhone 8 Video And Shocking Price List Leaked!
So, when it comes to “leaked” info of Apple’s new smartphone, I guess that company that does the bling to iPhone, Brikk, should know the best. So far, Brikk has not been proven wrong. Following the company’s teasing of the new range of luxe, yet-to-be-announced iPhone 8, Brikk has pushed out an email saying it has “new confirmed updates and photos of iPhone 8 from Apple.” Now, I have not been keeping abreast of the rumors so far, well, at least not as much as I think I should have, but what Brikk has to offer on the email is a tad more than the current rumors floating around. Along with a few images of the supposed leaked iPhone 8, Brikk confirmed the worst fear of some Apple users: Apple is yet again removing something and this time it has ditched the traditional home button which also happens to be the touch ID to make way for a larger screen coverage. Continue reading Apparently, These Are New “Confirmed” Updates And Images Of iPhone 8
The fate of the so-called iPhone 8 remains unclear. So far, what I have read is contradicting to say the least. One source cited possible delay due to material shortage and another said on contrary to rumor, it will be on time. Hell, no one can even confirm if it will be called iPhone 8 at all. For all you know, it could be just iPhone Edition. However, like before, that won’t stop Brikk from ‘introducing’ the luxury version of the yet-to-be-announced iPhone 8. The tip reached our inbox and I thought it will be interesting to share. In total Brikk plans to offer three levels of luxe iPhone 8: Lux iPhone 8, Lux iPhone 8 Standard and Lux iPhone 8 Deluxe.

Following Unbox Therapy’s video on the supposed mockup model of the upcoming iPhone 7, new high-resolution images of the upcoming Apple smartphone has surfaced. At this point, we are inclined to think that Cook’s era of Apple cares nothing about leaks. Either that or the whole leak thing was intentional to generate the buzz Apple desperately needs. Anywho, the photos was reportedly originated from mobile peripheral website Topp Ten, but I must say, since viewing the images, I already have doubt about their authenticity – both the supposed mock up and these supposed “dummy units.” Ok, maybe I am just being skeptical, denying the fact that Apple will actually allows such leak to happen, or maybe it was the mysterious contact around the back of the blue color mockup sports which these high-resolution images appear lacking.

It’s August now, which means we are a month closer to the next iPhone unveiling. Unlike Steve Jobs’ time, Apple devices have been getting a lot of “leaks” in recent years. Not sure if this was intentional to keep the hype alive or not, but one thing for sure, rumors are in abundance. Rumors, if you don’t already know, includes the much controversial lack of audio jack, along with speculation about relocation of the antenna band, a dual lens camera setup, and even the color. No one knows for sure how reliable are the rumors, but if the post-Jobs history has anything to teach us is, they are mostly real. So much for Apple’s pride on secrecy, eh?

you know dragons? (not the lizard, Komodo Dragon) they are mythical creatures, right? they are something that we hear a lot about and yet, no mortals has seen one. still that doesn’t stops us from imagining them up. well, the iTV that Steve Jobs once hinted is akin to this mythical creature up to this point. among friends, we have talked about someday Apple may have their own TV that bears the signature usability and sleek look that are synonymous with Apple today but that was just talked. i am sure at some point Apple users talked about it too. whether it will become a reality is anyone’s guess but for now, we have the opportunity to feast our eyes on artist Guilherme Martins Schasiepen’s perspective of what’s Jobs’ iTV might look like. blast past the jump for a small gallery or head on down to Guilherme’s Flickr page for more concept renders.

we have seen a handful of iPhone 5 ‘designs’ but this could be the closest to the real deal yet. the render was created by design house CiccareseDesign as commissioned by MacRumors, and it was rendered “as closely as possible to the original leaked case designs.” apart from modeling after the supposedly leaked iPhone 5 case design, the render also took some hints from the rumors that has been flying around the Internet, such as aluminum back, large edge-to-edge display et cetera. seriously, if the iPhone 5 is going to look like this, i’d take two of those. no kidding. i am such a sucker for design and i must say CiccareseDesign and MacRumors did quite a spectacular job in their rendition. way better then the supposedly iPhone 5 clone built by a Chinese guy we have seen earlier. join me after the break for a few more images. Continue reading if this is how the iPhone 5 would look like. i will take two!

before the speculated date of launch for the iPhone 5 arrives (that’s rumored to be September, if still aren’t aware), here’s a teaser from some folks over at Shenzhen, China. yes. what you see here is images of a supposedly iPhone 5 clone which frankly, i am not quite impressed. some thought it could be very close to the real thing. real thing, in this case here, means the speculated designs that has been flying around the Internet for sometime now. i was expecting a bigger display, a more iPad 2-style backing and generally, something a lot sleeker and cooler. this definitely doesn’t cut it, at least to me. very un-Apple like to say the very least. check out more images of this clone after the break to judge for yourself. Continue reading is this how the new iPhone 5 would like? i hope not [photos]

some Mac fans, MacBook Air in particular, might lament that the Air is lacking of the Intel’s Thunderbolt technology but according to CNET, it looks like the Air might be getting a dose of Apple’s fastest I/O together with “a notable processing boost.” Apple is reportedly increasing the manufacturing of both the 11.6 inch and 13.3 inch MacBook Airs that features Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors and of course, the much lauded Thunderbolt technology. Continue reading is MacBook Air getting a dose of the Thunderbolt?
