Apple’s latest product launch will be in a setting that holds a special place in its history, signaling how big this event is for the company.

iphone 6 september launch

 

The Sept. 9 launch, which is expected to feature a larger iPhone and possibly a computerized watch, will be in the same Silicon Valley venue where Apple’s late co-founder, Steve Jobs, took the wraps off the original Mac computer 30 years ago. That machine was hailed as a major breakthrough that helped bring personal computing to the masses.

These events have become an annual rite since the 2007 release of the iPhone, but this year’s may be the most highly anticipated since the iPad came out in 2010.

A “smartwatch” or other wearable technology would mark the company’s first foray into a new product category since the iPad came out.

True to its secretive nature, Apple Inc. isn’t giving any clues about what’s on the Sept. 9 agenda. “Wish we could say more,” Apple said in a succinct white invitation mailed Thursday to reporters and others.

The company scheduled the event at an auditorium about 3 miles from its Cupertino, California, headquarters. It seats about 2,300 people, a far larger capacity than the places that Apple usually uses to show off its new products.

Apple watchers expect an iPhone with a larger screen than the 4-inch display on the previous two generations of the device. The iPhone 6 is expected to feature a 4.7-inch screen to make it more competitive with larger smartphones made by Samsung Electronics and other rivals relying on Google Inc.’s free Android software. There also has been speculation that Apple may release another iPhone model with a 5.5-inch screen.

A bigger-screen iPhone could unleash a surge of sales among Apple fans who own iPhones with smaller displays. Some analysts think Apple could sell at least 70 million units of the iPhone 6 within the first few months after the device hits the market.

Although the iPhone is Apple’s biggest moneymaker, much of the intrigue around this year’s event surrounds the possibility that the company may release a long-awaited smartwatch that could help monitor people’s health and serve as control center for Internet-connected appliances and electronics in the home.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has indicated that he is intrigued with wearable technology devices, but hasn’t provided any concrete clues about what the company is working on. Cook has only said he is excited about what Apple’s latest inventions, a sentiment echoed by one of his top lieutenants, Eddy Cue, who earlier this year hailed the company’s product pipeline as its best in 25 years.

Apple has just been redesigning and adding features to its iPhones, iPads, iPods and Mac since the release of the iPad, raising concerns among investors that the company had run out of new ideas after the October 2011 death of Jobs, who served as its chief visionary.

Those worries have subsided during the past four months as the excitement has built for Apple’s new products. Apple’s stock hit a new high of $102.78 in Thursday morning’s trading before falling back to close at $102.25, up 12 cents for the session. The shares have risen 25 percent in 2014.

The iPhone 6 is now facing its final test phase in preparation for mass production. At least, that’s the latest scuttlebutt from Chinese media.

Purportedly based on sources at Apple supplier Foxconn, a report from Chinese blog site Weibo claims that the iPhone 6 is now in a stage called product validation test (PVT), according to the G for Games blog. The PVT stage means that the iPhone assembly line ramps up to full speed to see if any hitches creep into the process. A small number of iPhones are manufactured for a quality-control check, and the assembly line may be tweaked if the process needs any refinements. Mass production then starts as soon as the PVT passes muster.

However, a July report from Chinese media claimed that mass production of a 4.6-inch iPhone 6 was already slated to start in July, while production of a 5.5-inch model would kick off during the second week of August. So which report is correct, assuming either of them are?

One possible explanation is that the July report may have been accurate at the time but that Apple ran into issues that led to a delay in actual mass production. Another explanation is that one or more of the sources for these two reports simply has the facts wrong.

The source of the newest report is Xiang Ligang, a former professor at the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications and currently CEO of a Chinese publication called CCTimes, according to G for Games. As such, G for Games gives him some credibility based on his expected knowledge of Apple’s Chinese supply chain sources.

For now, though, take all of this with the usual grain of salt as these items are still firmly in the rumor stage.

Whether it’s already reached mass production or is just about to reach it, the next iPhone needs to be ready soon. The iPhone 6 is expected to be unveiled next month, most likely at a media event on September 9, according to Recode. If true, that means Apple must be prepping production of the new iPhone in time for a consumer rollout later in September or early October at the latest.

A spokeswoman for Apple declined CNET’s request to comment on the mass production reports.

Sometimes it’s rally frustrating if your iPhone ran out of power when you are outside. You may have to take hours to charge your phones with USB or charger in public places. Now you get a wonderful alternative to charge your smart phones in the air. There’s a wonderful hardware, uBeam,  is introduced last Wednesday.

Meredith Perry who’s only 25 years old now, firstly started astrobiology at the University of Pennsylvania, but now no one would expected that she is now introducing this excellent new concept to the world. She created a technology to charge electronic devices on the air.

To charge your iPhone or other smartphones, you just simply need a device (uBeam Charge Station) to convert electricity to ultrasound, and with a small USB like receiver, you can charge your electronic devices in the air.  The uBeam Charge Station can be made as thin as several millimeters and can be hide easily on decoration paintings on the wall. But due to it’s still under developing, there are still some barriers. For example, the Station can’t send ultrasound waves through the walls like what Wifi does. So you will have to get several Stations in different rooms.

But no matter what, it’s still nice to imagine what our daily lives would be changed if it’s available. People can charge their phones and laptops anytime anywhere. They even don’t need the large battery storage any more. That will make the devices much more lighter.

And it’s not far, since Perry said that uBeam will be available in the next two years. Let’s expect for it.

 


Apple today announced their Q2 2014 financial results and highlights include 43.7 million iPhones, 16.3 million iPads, 4.1 million Macs sold. Quarterly revenue was $45.6 billion and quarterly net profit was $10.2 billion It’s not the holiday quarter, which is Apple’s typical powerhouse, and it’s roughly half a year since the last big product announcements, so there’s been nothing to jumpstart numbers. Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, had this to say:

We’re very proud of our quarterly results, especially our strong iPhone sales and record revenue from services. We’re eagerly looking forward to introducing more new products and services that only Apple could bring to market.” (more…)

Apple today confirmed that it will start offering a free recycling program for all its products, reports the Associated Press. This new initiative is part of a larger push by Apple to make its company’s operations as environmentally friendly as possible.

Apple already has a program in place that offers customers gift cards when they bring in an older iPhone or iPod that is in good enough condition to be resold. Customer who bring in an older device could then use that money on a another purchase.

Now all retail Apple stores will start accepting older devices that are broken or have no resale value because of their age. Customers won’t receive any money for these devices, but Apple will accept them for recycling for free. Apple is offering this program to help customers dispose of older devices in a responsible way.
