So there has been some latest renders of the iPhone 8 floating about online. To be honest? It looks clean AF! Pretty much reduced bezels down to none at all, there is a strip going around the edge of it, but it still looks nice in my eyes.
The renders are from the designer Martin Hajek he has done a pretty clean job with these renders and I look forward to seeing more.
No Touch ID on the back, vertical camera for AR. I’m looking forward to the release of the iPhone 8 or X, whatever they decide to call it. There have been so many leaks, renders and speculation in pretty much everything to do with the phone. Design, glass, camera, AR, OLED screen, thickness etc, however we won’t truly find out until it gets released. Depending on the price, and design, I will consider it. I don’t think the camera flash is going to be in the middle, if it is, the lenses will be further apart and the camera section will be longer. What you think of the renders? Prefer white or black?
This year at WWDC 2017 there is a few things to expect. MacBook upgrades, Siri Speaker, new iPads and software updates.
New iPad Pro
There will be a new iPad Pro for sure. There has been to many leaks for there not to be. The leaks and cases around the web have confirmed it will be a 10.5 inch iPad Pro, rocking the A10 chip, quite possibly a A10X chip with some function that is only valid with that iPad and won’t work with other iPads in the line-up, marketing at its best ha! Obviously it will have the Space Grey, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold colours as all the rest do, well possibly no rose gold as the 12.9 inch iPad Pro, iPad or iPad Mini 4 doesn’t have it, so we shall see. There might be a few design tweaks and such, but more to follow on Monday when WWDC happens.
I wouldn’t say ‘new’ MacBooks for this one to be honest as it will just be upgrades mainly, if you class that as new, then good for you. The MacBook range, I’m pretty sure all of them will get the Kaby Lake chips from Intel this time around. When these are released Intel are already working or have released new chips once again. So, people will probably complain that these chips are a generation behind when they have no idea what they do. The one I’m most interested in is the MacBook Air if it gets a retina display, processor update and keeps the keyboard in there, if they go the Core M or whatever route for the processor and incarnate the new keyboard they use then I shan’t be a fan. I don’t like the clicky keyboard on the MacBook or the MacBook Pro for that matter, even know the Pro has a second gen butterfly switch, I still don’t like it, I prefer traction, then I can make sure the key has been pressed, although I can see it coming, time will tell.
Apple released a new colour of iPhone. (PRODUCT) Red. Same everything else, just the colour has changed. On the Apple Online Store it clearly states ‘Order from 15:01 on 24.03’, you would be surprised how many people ask ‘When is it released’ and sound silly. Don’t be lazy and look for it before asking silly questions.
There has been a lot of photos floating about the web of what the iPhone 8 could look like, but these images seem to be a really good look of how it could turn out.
The renders of the iPhone 8 are by Benjamin Geskin for iDropNews. They really are something to look at for a better idea. You can see that he has lined the iPhone 8 up with the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8, all somewhat looking similar.
So its official. The AirPods have been released. Took long enough eh? The Verge, 9to5 Mac and The Next Web have a few posts if you would like to read them.
I’ve been waiting on a pair of these for a while now but it seemed that Apple had issues with the bluetooth side of things. Feel free to do a quick search on that.
In a press release, Apple says that the AirPods “will be shipping in limited quantities at launch,” and that brick-and-mortar stores “will receive regular AirPod shipments.” AirPods will start appearing at Apple Stores, “select” carrier stores, and authorized Apple retailers next week. They’re launching in over 100 countries, including the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Mexico, and Japan.
