No USB-C iPhone for you this year as a new report out of Japan alleges that this year's models will retain Apple's proprietary Lightning connector rather than switch to the USB-C protocol.
According to a new supply chain rumored published on Monday, Apple's fifth-generation iPad mini is expected to look the same as the iPad mini 4 design.
Apple may be working on a new iPod touch, according to a report from Japanese blog Mac Otakara. Citing supplier sources at CES earlier this month, the outlet says the company may be working on a 7th generation of the device, which was last updated in mid-2015.
The 2018 iPad Pro models will include smaller bodies, a relocated Smart Connector, and ship without a headphone jack. The new tablets, expected to launch this fall, will also include Face ID, according to Japanese site Mac Otakara.
Face ID currently does not work in landscape orientation, but iOS 12 could change that.
Apple's rumored Plus-sized iPhone X model should pack an OLED display measuring 6.5 inches diagonally into a chassis roughly the same size as the current iPhone 8 Plus model.
The official successor to iPhone SE could be coming next month.
Apple's iBooks app for iOS 12 is said to feature a new Today tab.
Fairly reliable Japanese outlet Mac Otakara has spoken (Google Translate) to reliable sources who have reportedly confirmed Friday that Apple would be kicking off sales of its AirPower wireless charging accessory next month.
Apple's upcoming OLED-based iPhone 8 won't start shipping out to buyers until October or early November, sources said, adding that its much larger Power button that appears on leaked CAD drawings won't integrate Touch ID functions as some have suspected.
Apple's next-generation handset will feature a stainless steel frame, reports Japanese blog Mac Otakara. Citing sources familiar with the matter, the site claims the new iPhone will use an improved version of the Apple Watch's stainless steel casing, which will sit sandwiched between two pieces of glass.
Japanese blog Mac Otakara is reporting that Apple's OLED-based iPhone 8 may be marketed under the “iPhone Edition” moniker, saying the flagship handset may hit store shelves well after an announcement in September. The story corroborates prior rumors and analyst reports suggesting that iPhone 8 might launch later than expected and cost upwards of $1,000.
Mac Otakara expects the LCD-based iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus iterative updates to go on sale shortly following the announcement.
