Rumor: Next Generation iPad Mini Will Be Significantly Lighter And Thinner


iPad mini
A new report is today suggesting that Apple will be going beyond the thin and light construction of the Retina Display iPad mini and will be shrinking the device even further. According to Taiwanese publication Economic Daily News, the new iPad mini will be up to 30% thinner than the Retina Display iPad mini and will also make the device significantly lighter.

The information is apparently coming from unnamed sources in the Apple supply chain, but it is questionable as to whether this would actually be possible with current technology while improving on the processing power, and retaining the bright Retina Display and 10 hour battery life of the current generation iPad mini. The report touts the possible name for the device as the iPad mini Air.

New Macs With Intel Broadwell Processors Won’t Arrive Until 2015


iMac 2014
A new report has shed some light on the availability of next generation chips set to be released by Intel, codenamed Broadwell. According to Chinese VR Zone, production of the new 14nm chips will not start until much later this year and thus the chips themselves will not be made available for Mac devices until early-2015 at the very earliest. According to the leak, the mobile chips used in MacBook devices will be among the first available, followed by the Broadwell H chips which would be used in the iMac and 15 inch Retina MacBook Pro later in the year.

The reason for the delay in the release is apparently issues with the 14 nanometer process that is used in the chips. It is not clear, however, if Apple would continue to go ahead with their release of brand new Mac devices with inferior processors, or whether they would delay release of the new devices while waiting for the chips to be made available.

A new report is suggesting that the iPhone 6 will see a moderate increase in battery capacity in order to support the larger screen and increased processing power. According to GforGames who are citing Chinese media reports, the capacity of the battery in the iPhone 6 will actually be between 1,800-1,900 mAh. This is a considerable improvement over the 1,560 mAh battery found in the iPhone 5S and it is therefore likely that Apple is aiming for increased battery life as well as ensuring enough resources for the new device.
