We’ve already heard that Apple is researching wireless charging methods. We reported on an Apple patent a few weeks ago that suggested that the Cupertino company was investigating an alternative to standard plug-in chargers.
Now there is a new report suggesting that Apple is indeed interested in wire-free power. So much so, that many are speculating that the new technology could make its way into iDevices as early as 2012… Read More

Around this time of year, next-generation iPhone rumors are usually coming left and right. According to a new report, Toshiba is building a 4-inch 720p Retina Display for Apple.
If you may recall, late last year Reuters reported that Apple and Toshiba were working together on a plant to make displays for iOS devices. Toshiba had announced that it would build a factory for 100 billion yen (about $1.2 billion) to produce future LCD panels.
Yesterday, Toshiba announced its next generation of mobile displays, which Toshiba will be showing off in LA this week. According to the press release, the mobile displays are sized from 3.3 inches to 4 inches, with resolutions from Wide VGA (480-by-864) to HD (720-by-1280). Read More

Who’s sick and tired of all of the iPhone 5 news, and is ready for the iPhone 6 rumors to begin heating up?

Speculation has been that Apple could possibly introduce an LTE/4G iPhone in the coming year. Some even thought that Apple pushed back the iPhone 5′s announcement to wait for LTE saturation in the U.S.
Will we see an iPhone 4G this September? According to both Apple and the LTE industry, it doesn’t look hopeful…

It might seem like the rumor mill is working over time on Apple’s next smartphone, but it’s really nothing new. Up and coming Apple products typically garner a lot of attention.
There is a ton of speculation about the next iPhone flying around the internet, but none of it has been confirmed. Without an official announcement from Apple, all the tech junkies and investors have to go on are the rumors…

Well, no one saw that coming. Out of nowhere, AT&T has bought T-Mobile and become the largest wireless provider in the U.S.
It was originally thought that Sprint and T-Mobile would merge, but network incompatibilities made that idea look less and less attractive. Instead, AT&T and T-Mobile have shacked up to become the big kid on the block. Combined, AT&T and T-Mobile account for 130 million wireless customers in the United States, blowing by Verizon’s 90 million users.
The question on our mind is: What does this all mean for the iPhone? LTE? What if we actually start getting reception in our own homes…

I think most of us ’round these parts expect the iPhone 5 to be the last triumphant hoorah on 3G networks, but some interesting noise has been coming from the east concerning the likelihood of a 4G enabled iPhone.
China Mobile Communications Corp.’s Chairman, Wang Jianzhou, spoke on the matter by stating that “Jobs has expressed his interest in an LTE iPhone and is willing to start the development at an early date.”
Now to put the puzzle pieces together. Does he mean “early” as in iPhone 5 early? Or “early” as in next year sometime?

We’ve heard the rumblings about the supply problems stemming out of Apple’s current relationship with LG, the South Korean firm that currently supplies the iPhone LCD screens.
In a move that will likely give Apple more control over supply, Toshiba has announced that it will build a factory for 100 billion yen to produce future LCD panels. That’s a lot of money, about 1.2 billion in US dollars, which will certainly put Toshiba in the drivers seat when it comes to supplying screens for the iPhone.
Production isn’t scheduled to start until Q3 2011, so it’s entirely possible that these new screens could be used for the inevitable iPhone 6…
