Looks like Apple is testing a giant 12.9-inch iPad

July 22, 2013

Citing unnamed Apple suppliers in Asia, The Wall Street Journal claims that Apple is testing a 12.9-inch iPad and has asked its partners for “prototype smartphone screens larger than 4-inch”.

This report certainly adds weight to the rumor of Apple making a larger iPad. Korean website ETNews carried the same rumor of a 12.9-inch iPad in May and said that the model would bear the somewhat unlikely moniker of the ‘iPad maxi’.

It also appears as though the firm will look to go bigger with future iPhones too, with Reuters reporting last month that Apple is considering 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch screens for the iPhone 5, sizes which would push the Cupertino [...]

Mobile ads: iOS winning even more

July 2, 2013

A new report says iOS's share of the mobile ad market grew from 59% to 64% between May of last year and May, 2013, according to mobile ad firm Velti. Android's share slipped from 41% to 36% in 2013.

The iPhone 5's share grew by 7.4% over the year period, while the iPad added 3.7%.

Velti's report also notes that advertisers are ditching smaller display size ad units in favor of bigger ones.

Full screen interstitial, as well as 300 x 250 and 728 x 90 ads are all showing growth, while 320 x 50 ads on the iPhone specifically have seen a decline in usage.

Speak up: iPad 5 said to sport rear microphone

May 23, 2013

The latest iPad 5 rumor nugget is that the tablet will feature a rear-microphone next to the camera, much like the iPhone 5.

The Japanese blog Macotakara further claimed original prototypes of the iPad mini also had rear microphones. But AppleInsider said Apple dropped the microphone found in those iPad mini prototypes right before the final version shipped last autumn.

Loom offers an iCloud alternative for photos

May 23, 2013

One advantage Loom says it will offer is that it puts all your photos and videos in the cloud, letting you empty your Camera Roll and reclaim lost disk space. Loom uses "smart technology" to intelligently cache photos and videos based on the size of the device that you’re using.

For example, if you’re snapping high-def photos with your 16 GB iPhone 5, you don’t really need the full resolution version of those photos in order to enjoy them on the small screen, or share them with others.

Just like Apple's Photos, Loom also works even when there isn't a network connection available. It will just sync everything you do offline once the [...]

Developer logs suggest Apple is working on the iPhone 6 and iOS 7

January 3, 2013

According to The Next Web, developer logs have started to appear referencing the ‘iPhone 6.1’, a device that was seemingly being run by iOS 7. The logs also note the iPhone 5 with monikers ‘iPhone 5.1’ and ‘iPhone 5.2’, with the difference between the two depending on the LTE model and 4G band frequency.

While these codes can sometimes by manipulated, the source adds to the authenticity of the report by saying that the IP address of the new iPhone came from inside Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino.

Apple only released the iPhone 5 in September and has traditionally kept to a yearly cycle with the smartphone, only for [...]
