The prolific leakers over at the French blog NowhereElse.fr [Google Translate] on Sunday have managed to get hold of a short video which purportedly shows off a 2,915mAh battery said to be bound for a 5.5-inch iPhone 6.
In the past week or so, we’ve been treated to several sightings of 1,810mAh, 2,100mAh and 2,915mAh batteries for the upcoming Apple handsets.
This, however, marks the first time the part’s been captured on video.
Compared to the ~1,560mAh unit inside the iPhone 5s, this alleged iPhone 6 battery is twice as strong. Whether the added juice is only meant to power the iPhone 6’s power-hungry 5.5-inch screen alongside new sensors and an NFC chip for mobile payments, or perhaps extend the handset’s total run time, shall remain anyone’s guess until next Tuesday, 10am PT.

Following yesterday’s batch of videos featuring an alleged iPhone 6 booting to iOS 8, a new footage has surfaced Sunday morning offering what appears to be the most detailed video overview of Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 6 ahead of Tuesday’s keynote.
Shared by French blog NowhereElse.fr [Google Translate] and running seven minutes and seventeen seconds long, the interesting clip found after the break is not of Gizmodo’s iPhone 4 magnitude.
That being said, it does offer a series of comparisons between a device which appears to be an iPhone 6 and the current-generation iPhone 5s, including stock apps like Camera and more. Read More

As Apple is gearing up for a major media event scheduled for the next Tuesday at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in its hometown of Cupertino, well-plugged in blogger Jim Dalrymple noticed the iPhone maker has also constructed its own building on the Flint Center grounds.
And thanks to enthusiasts like Sachin Patel who flew a drone over the building, we’ve now fully realized just how massive the secondary structure is — as in, it’s taller than the Flint Center itself!

Featuring some rather dramatic closeups, it gives a good look at a 4.7-inch edition of the iPhone 6 and its design aesthetics while depicting a Space Gray variant with both a black and white front plate. Read More

A new video surfaced last week, offering a great look at Apple’s new ‘spaceship’ campus construction site. If you’ll recall, Apple was given the green light by the Cupertino City Council last fall to start the project, and it appears that builders are already making serious headway.
Drone enthusiast ‘jmcminn’ uploaded the video to his YouTube channel, which was shot using a DJI Phantom 2 drone and a GoPro Hero. The clip is worth watching both from a technological standpoint (hello, it was shot with a consumer drone), and for the peek at Campus 2. Read More

The repair experts over at uBreakiFix have posted a video comparing the durability of smartphone displays made of sapphire and Gorilla Glass. The comparison comes amidst ongoing speculation that the upcoming iPhone 6 may feature a sapphire screen.
Results from the test may surprise you, as although the sapphire display did prove to be significantly more scratch resistant than Gorilla Glass, it was also far more susceptible to impact breaks due to its stiffness and brittleness. Watch the full video below. Read More

Modified iPhone vendor Feld & Volk has posted a video this afternoon of what is believed to be a complete 4.7-inch iPhone 6. The firm, which has demonstrated its ability to get its hands on rare parts in the past, says it constructed the device from leaked parts.
We’ve seen a plethora of these leaked parts over the past few weeks, as Apple suppliers are presumably ramping up next-gen iPhone production ahead of next month’s event. But this is the first time we’ve ever seen the handset wholly assembled, and turned on. Read More

If you’re looking for a clever use of the iPhone’s gyroscope and accelerometer sensors, look no further than Hyperlapse, a new iOS app by Facebook-owned Instagram which lets you create panning and time-lapse shots, steadycam-style.
The time-lapse feature is similar to one Apple will bring to iOS devices with the release of iOS 8 in Fall.
As for the tracking shots, the software uses advanced algorithms and your iPhone’s hardware to smooth out panning shots as if you recorded video with a Steadicam or a professional $15,000 tracking rig.
And in what prove to be a killer feature for folks who loathe Instagram, Hyperlapse can be enjoyed without an Instagram or Facebook account as no signup is required to use the app.
Hyperlapse is available free in the App Store. Read More
